Real Psychic Experiences

A Shadowed Figure


I was 10 years old, in fourth grade. I awoke with a chill on my feet. Moved a bit to warm myself up, but it didn't work. I sat up and looked in front of me. There I saw a shadowed figure, the felt and saw the presence of a man. The energy I got from him was sorrow. I was petrified from fear, and masked by sadness. I looked back at the end of my bed and he was gone. I still see Jonathon to this day, and I picked up more information about him. As long as I've see him, and as long as I've known of him. I'm still terrified by him.

Along the years, I was a little confused, I was thinking whether I should tell my mom or not. I haven't told anyone about my ability. No friends, no family. I'm 14 years old, and I've been hiding this for the longest time. And I don't know when I should tell someone about Jonathon, and my secret. But after a while you get tired of being alone, and isolated, and want to expand your gift with the people you're meant to be close with. But I can't do that, unfortunately.

All this time, since three or four years old, I was questioning my own sanity. And the last thing I want is to tell my family and have them think the same.

So basically, Jonathon keeps tormenting me, along with other spirits I occasionally see. And I have a hard time with self-acceptance.

Do you think that any of you can help me deal with my issues and my so called "gift"?

Any books out there that I can read?

I see black shadows a lot. They watch me when I sleep. Sometimes I wake up and they just stare for several seconds. They are demons. They are believed to feed off negative energy. Don't show it fear, because they seem to like that. Last week my friend got scratched by one. I keep this from my parents too. I told them once. They have seen it but they think I'm crazy or something. I have kept it in since then.

i had the same problem this happened to me a couple of months back I was in my living room playing a game and all of a sudden it went really cold and I looked at my window and there was a very tall shadowed figure and it walked right passed me threw the window. I also felt so much negativity I heard that this figured ghost/spirit only comes to people who have strange gifts.

Have you ever seen "Psychic Kids" on A and E? It's a show that helps empower psychic kids who are learning how to deal with their abilities. I surround myself in the white light of the Christ and also call upon the spirits that protect me like my guardian angels.

I am writing a book right now, the shadows are in it I wish that it was finished and published and you could read it but unfortunately it is no where near done.

You are not alone though, I too saw the shadows. That coupled with other developing gifts from an early age after being involved in an accident worried my parents. I was put into a child mental health care clinic. I was put on antipsychotics anti depressants, sleeping pills you name it. I was diagnosed with so many different things, epilepsy to explain the black outs, psychosis for the visions, depression because I didn't fit in and felt alone, insomnia because I refused to sleep because of the visions and premonitions.

Sorry this is kind of depressing but it makes for a good book. The people here seem nice and genuine, why lie about something that makes you seem crazy?

I still to this day choose the people I tell very carefully but the ones that will listen often start to develop gifts of their own. I don't know if that is normal but it is what I have witnessed over the years.

You are not alone, I think that most people here have had problems with self doubt and self acceptance and I still put 'gift' in quotation marks too.

P.s. Maybe Jonathan doesn't mean to torment you. Fear can often alter our perception of a situation.

I had this exact experience once! Weird that it was the same way you had it... I was like, 14 I think, maybe 13. I was sleeping one night and my tv is in front of my bed, and it was on. I woke up because my feet were really really cold, but when I turned to look I saw a shadow of a person standing in front of my tv and then it was just gone, and I looked at my feet to cover them because I was terrified, and it was like someone had pulled the blanket over to the other side of my feet, in a perfect triangle shape, it was so strange. There was no way I could've kicked it off my feet like that myself. I've been dealing with this stuff since I was 2, but I don't remember much up until I was 5. My best advice is to not be afraid, like mystical said. Just face it, you're going to be dealing with it your whole life, it might seem scary but don't doubt yourself, it truly is a gift and we're given it for a reason. Try to help Jonathan cross over? He will definitely leave you alone if he crosses over. As for the other spirits, tell them to leave you alone, you can only help one at a time.

Try not to be afraid. The more your afraid, the more they want to torment you. They feed on fear. Another thing, have you ever told them to leave and that they are not wanted there? Have all these spirits always been a part of your house or are they just intruding whenever they want?

Without telling your parents, have you ever talked about the topic with your parents? I found out later on that my mother actually had experiences of her own, but just chose to ignore it.
