What I've Been Seeing Lately And I'm Unsure What It Is


This is my first submission and in all truth I'm not exactly sure why I'm sharing my story. I guess I just need to unburden myself a bit. Anyway, I've been having odd experiences since I was probably around seven, but things have really gotten to be just more since I was about sixteen. I'm twenty-eight now. What has been slightly more then disturbing was earlier in April I was frequently seeing a human sized and shaped shadow. It wasn't like a shadow cast from a light being behind an object, it defied what normal shadow behavior is like. It hasn't just been in one place. It was in my room, the dining room, and I even saw it a few times while driving. I saw something very similar to it when I was in a cemetery one time, and that scared the heck out of me. This thing doesn't scare me at all. It probably should but all I feel when I see it is a sense of anxiety, which I just ignore.

I was so concerned that I actually went to see an optometrist and paid full price due to a lack of health insurance. I was worried that perhaps I was experiencing retinal detachment, which by all accounts would not be good. I found out that the only thing wrong with my eyes or vision at all was I'm near sighted. I already knew that. Ok and apparently I have an extra blood vessel in my right eye, which in the world of eyes is apparently a big deal because the doctor said "cool." I'm glad I have no detachment issues going on but I am concerned that I'm experiencing some sort of hallucination. But it just doesn't seem like a hallucination. I have experienced hallucinations before. The last time was when I had a very high fever the last time I had the flu and I could tell I was seeing things that weren't really there. These events have a very different feel then when I hallucinated when I had the flu.

The physical description of this thing is:

It's about 5'9" to 5'11, solid black with no real discerning features other than it's definitely not a flat shadow. It's more three dimensional. Also it makes me feel relatively anxious. I've seen this thing straight on and also out of the corner of my eye. One more crazy thing is I've seen it when it was pitch black in my room and also during the sunniest of days, it's general shape and color never alter.

I'm just curious what everyone thinks of this. Sorry I didn't really delve deeper into my past experiences before these events but I'd like to focus on this for now. Thoughts anyone?

this happens to me too! Ever since I was a child I have felt like I am being watched and within the past two years it has been taken to a whole new level. I started to see shadows and figures everywhere I went, I never got a scary feeling though it was always comforting. I have been told by my grandmother. Who has the same experiences, that the figures are my angels.

Hmmmm, I have seen one, only on the visit when my sister came to visit me, it actually looked like her boyfriend, go figure.

The only thing you should be doing surrounding anything like this, is to always come from a place of love & honesty. Don't fall to the other. Your vibration allows things to come into life. Stay away from any dark talk, or dark happenings.

Think love, be love, do kind acts of love and don't stop. Love to you, Joni

That's wild that you've also seen him. I too have the problem of not getting as much of a sense from them as other spirits I see. I've been describing them as almost "personalityless". Made up word, sorry.
I can't even tell if they are male or female most of the time.

I've seen one with a brimmed hat as well. That's nuts. That's the one I've seen in the cemetery. I've seen ghosts/spirits or whatever you may call them numerous times in the past, heck I've even worked in a haunted liquor store where I had a new event happen every day I worked, but this doesn't seem like that. My encounters with ghosts have always had more details involved. I could always see or discern more from those particular encounters. But with whatever this phenomenon is I can't really get much from it other than what I feel and it's coloration. It's just weird.

I see the same things often. At first I thought it was my eyes too until my fiance saw them a few times. I've seen ones that fit your description perfectly and also ones that are smaller. There has been one I've seen a few times that looked like the shadow of a medium dog. I don't know what they are, but I get the feeling that the ones I see are harmless. I think of them as just being curious. I've only encountered one that scared me much. It looked like a man in a wide brimmed hat and really frightened me. I had seen it twice, the last time being months ago.
Sorry I can't offer much help since I am puzzled by them too.
