Real Psychic Experiences

The Red Man


Honestly, I never really believed in ghost and such things, but I have no other way to explane what is happening. I'm posting this story because I hope somebody here has had a simmilar experience or maybe knows about something like it.

It stared around 4 years ago. One day I noticed a red silhouette of a man in the corner of my eye. I turned around and he was gone. I assumed it was just a trick of light and moved on. But it kept happening. I saw him every once in a while; he would just follow me in the corner of my eye and when I turned to face him he would be gone. At first I thought I was hallucinating (like I said I didn't believe in ghost or anything supernatural). I decided to tell that to my friends and we discussed it a bit and just went with the hallucination theory.

A bit after that my friend and one of her friends (with who I wasn't very close) and I went to see a play in a theatre. I saw the red man in one of the loges above us to the left. I mentioned that to my friend and the other friend (I will call her E to make things easier) noticed us watching that loge. E asked us what are we looking at and I asked her if she sees a man up there. She said she saw him, but he disappeared a second later. My friend saw the same thing. If only my friend, who knows the story, saw him I would assume that our brains are tricking us, but E didn't know about him so she had no reason to imagine it.

About a year later my cousin and I were hanging outside my school and it was about 7 or 8pm. We were casually chatting when I saw him standing a bit further from us. I asked her to turn around and she saw him. That was the first time I actually looked at him, but I still only saw a silhouette. We got scared and decided to go away. We started walking slowly so we wouldn't look suspicious to other people. We weren't looking at him for a few seconds at max, but when we turned to look at him he was gone.

A few months later my friend and her brother (I will call her V and him D because writing "friend" and "brother" takes too much time) were hanging out in the park. It was around 4pm. I saw the red man sitting on a bench a few meters from us. V noticed that I was acting strange so she asked me about it. When I said that I see him they both turned around and saw a man a second before he disappeared. V was sure he was there, but D was skeptical and said we were probably seeing things. He said that but I saw that he was tense and looked scared.

So in total 5 people saw him, excluding myself, so that means that there was definitely something there. I read a lot about ghost and demons that occasionally follow people but the experiences from those people were different then mine. In most cases the creatures would interact with them or the environment in some way but the red man only stands there and follows me. He never talked to me, moved anything, touched me or anybody else. He almost always keeps a few meters of distance between us but he occasionally appeared closer. One time I saw him next to my bed, but that was only once. If we are in a crowd it seems people move away from where he stands even though later there's nobody there. When he is close to me I don't hear any footsteps or moving sounds. I have no idea what he is. So far he doesn't seem dangerous but he gives me a uneasy feeling (like somebody is watching me). Whenever I actually look at him he seems like a silhouette of a man dressed all in red. I researched anything related to entities that follow people and found nothing related to him. And I guess that's how I ended up here.

I would venture to say that since other people have seen this red cloaked energy it isn't a human spirit guide. No this is something powerful. Enough to control humans perception itself. I have heard of Red and white Paladens. They are high dimensional energy's 6th level and higher. I would advise you Do not try to force contact. Speak if spoken too. And live as if your being watched!

My first piece of advice is to not let it scare you, especially since you say he has done nothing to scare you. If you wish him away out of something as strong as fear, then he will leave for good (actually, he'll probably still be there, but you will lose the ability to see him, out of fear.) Then, if sometime in the future you become interested in all this stuff, it will be EXTREMELY hard to break down those walls you built. Be glad that you can see a full apparition with your physical eyes. That is a talent that very many people wish they had.

When I was a kid, me and my brother saw a yellow man walk past the window. He was dressed all in yellow, with a yellow hat, and had no facial features. He was just yellow. From head to toe. There was nothing actually scary about the encounter, besides the fact that we were home alone in a house in the middle of the country, and there shouldn't have been anyone walking around. The man never looked in the window or acknowledged that we were even inside. But being children, of course we were scared and something as simple as that makes it harder to see things going forward. A few years ago there was a female presence at the foot of my bed that tickled my feet and then sat down on bed. This one was all black, kind of see through, and was what I assume was a shadow person. Maybe they are all shadow persons, and I'm not sure why they come in different shades of color.

Anyway, I was so scared, and not into this kind of stuff at the time, that I built a wall out of fear and have never seen anything like that again. Even though now I really wish I could see them again and begin communicating.

If it peaks your interest, why don't you try to start asking it questions? You will know very quickly if it is something to fear. If it is already following you around, then at least try and figure out why

you are seeing something. Try to pray. If it scares you. Somehow you are able to see this entity.
