Hooded Figure In My Dreams


Recently I have been having reoccurring dreams where I "wake up" and I can't move or talk or sometimes open my eyes. I always have this feeling that something or someone Is there watching me.

I remember specifically on one night when I was about 8. I had just fallen asleep and I thought I had been awake. I remember getting up but when I looked back at my bed I saw my own body just lying there not even breathing. I started panicking and I turned around and this cloaked figure in front of me. I fell back and tried to scream but nothing came out. It just stood there. Emotionless, just staring at me. Next thing I knew I woke up shaking and sobbing, while my mother hugged me. This dream would reoccur for about 3 years and every single night I would wake up at 3:00 AM every night looking at my door. The night it stopped was when I had the same dream but I reached out and tried to touch it's face but as soon as I grasped it, it disappeared. I started to scream and this time I could actually make noise.

I am now 15 and I just began having the dreams again. I moved about 3 months ago across the US. During the whole trip I just felt uneasy and I even thought I had seen the cloaked figure. I just shrugged it off but still got that terrifying feeling like I did when I was eight. I'm unsure about what this dream means bit I've read a bit on this hooded figure and realized that many others seem to have this strange figure in their dreams.

If any one really understands why I'm having these terrifying dreams please help me. I can't stand it anymore. I barely get sleep because I'm so afraid of it appearing again.

You can try shielding and smudging yourself plus wearing a pendent which symbolizes protection. Clearing the pendant as you deem necessary.

The hooded beings work with light and dark so too speak. They are not only seen when accidents or people cross over. But in an odd way they can protect humans or situations when other humans wish to harm us.

I agree with AmberEyes
Here is a website for shielding and other stuff like grounding

It sounds like you experienced what is called 'sleep paralysis' where the mind awakens but the body is still asleep so they get the feeling that they can't move. There are numerous people who experience the same sort of thing where they see someone/something in the same room.

When you describe looking back at yourself in the bed that sounds like astral projection. This is where the astral body leaves the physical and the conscience is taken with it when you can remember the experience. Other people have also had this happen to them. There are varying opinions on whether you can be harmed during this process. Some think yes whilst others disagree completely.

To help with your problem you could try shielding every night before you go to sleep. This is where you imagine a bubble of light encasing your body. You focus on projecting it out of yourself, visualizing it growing inch by inch until it covers your whole self. Then you spend some time focusing on strengthening it so it is impenetrable. Additionally, if you are religious, you can pray or ask God to protect you. When you are in this dream, if you can speak, you can use the Lord's name to ward the shadow off. Perhaps recite the Lord's prayer, or alternatively, you can say or even think 'Let the light of the Lord/God protect me and drive darkness from my life as I put my faith in Him.' Whatever feels powerful or you feel suits you.

Another option, which I would use in combination with shielding is cleansing. This is where you remove any negative energies from yourself and restore a balance within yourself. This may help with the terror you feel in its presence and may discourage it from appearing. There are many methods of cleansing online and I think you should research them and find the best for you. The sister site to this one is Spiritual Experiences and you may find information of use to you

If you look online you could probably find clearer instructions for shielding and if you looked through this website you can find other people who have gone through very similar experiences. Know that you are not alone in these experiences and there are solutions so keep hope.
An additional detail that I would like to add is that often dark entities feed off of negative energy such as fear, anger, hatred. Therefore, although it is terrifying, your fear is exactly what it feeds on. To get over your fear it might help to acknowledge that this being cannot harm you. This is evident when you reached out to touch it and it fled. It cannot physically manifest itself. You reaching out was an act of defiance and a way to show you no longer feared it which is why it might have fled. I am not suggesting you touch it again, but you must reassure yourself it cannot hurt you and as your fear dissipates so will its presence. This may take time so have some patience.

I hope this is of some use to you and know that you can overcome this. Just believe that you have the strength to 😊 ❤

First of off dreams are either
-telling you about yourself
I think this is a retrived dream because you said you felt it looking at you out of the dream if you can do this in the dream leave me alone and go see the light if you
Can do this it might leave you alone if not pray before you go to sleep and if this doesn't work sage the house
If that doesn't work go to a church by your house
Try this website
Hope this helps god bless you
