Ghosts in my Dreams


Hello, my name is Lauren. I am a 28 year old new mother and I seem to be experiencing some weirdness. For a while now I have been having these uncomfortable dreams, almost nightmares. I will be sleeping and then notice a "ghost" standing next to or in front of my bed. Every time that I could remember, the ghost was of a male gender. The last 3 times have been over a course of about one year, possibly a little less.

Last night's incident was a young boy, he was about 8 or 9 years old and he was wearing all white. He was standing on the left side of my bed next to myself and my daughter's bassinet. He was just standing there staring at me. He also appeared to be glowing slightly. I'm not sure if that's because he was wearing all white or not. The time before that, it was an older gentleman. This time, he was wearing all black with a black fedora. He was standing at the top of my bed on the right side (I sleep on the left side ). I can never see their faces, just silhouettes and they always seemed to be in draping clothing. I don't really remember much of the other episodes I have had, mainly these because these have been the most recent.

It is quite scary, especially because it wakes me up and my heart is racing. My husband gets scared too because I jump out of the bed. I'm not sure if this means anything, but if it does, I would love to know what. If anyone has any suggestions, or any ideas I would love to hear it. Thank you so much!

Hi Lauren, Something similar happens to me, I also always only remember the most recent ones and my heart races as well when I awaken, but strangely the last time I saw a woman but she didn't frighten me, in fact I actually tried to console her but I can't remember why and what I said. I can't see their faces but I know if it's a man, woman or child. I've read up on Shadow People but I believe this is different, since I sometimes have conversations with them in my sleep, my husband says I speak to someone or something and sometimes I wake him up saying something is going to get us and that we should leave right away, but then I go back to sleep immediately. I wish I knew whether it was real or only dreams, it started happening 9 years ago and I've lived in theee different places over that time. Hope you find some answers.

Well it looks like you are the lucky one that they want to haunt. It's hard to say what they want and that is currently hotly debated in paranormal circles. I think it's fair to say that what ever they want, it is no good and may even be to your own detriment.

Not that I want to get religous, but Jesus said "You shall know them by thier fruit". The fruit of the Shadow people seems to be fear and dread. There is some evidence that they can do harm and may even cause sickness. Who are they? What do they want? The jury is still out but for sure it is no good. The seem to enjoy the fear and dread they cause.

Please feel free to contact me (and anyone else for that matter). My email is pineboxclub [at]

Thanks Daniel. In regards to your comments about moving and remodeling... I did just move and did just remodel. But I was having these dreams in my last home as well. Could it be something in particular that they could possibly want?

HI Lauren,

I believe that ghosts can interact with us while asleep and in your case, they do. It sounds like these ghosts fall into the category of "Shadow People". You can read about them at The man in the fedora hat is a common manifestation along with other shadow people being draped in cloaks. You also mentioned that you can not see there eyes, this is also common with shadow people. Have you heard them speak but couldn't understand what they were saying?

The question is what are they haunting? You, your daughter, the house etc. Did you remodel your house, that can trigger this too.

My suggestion, would be to move. In the mean time, when you have them in your dreams try not to be afraid, they seem to feed on fear. Another idea might be to try to contact a paranormal group in your area and ask them for help. Feel free to contact me, best of luck.

hi I would say buy a dream catcher they really help I have one which is really good a Indian one and I have just bought a other one from Spain. Yeah its ok I go through this they need help they trust you. I see teenagers teen ghosts around my house I saw one in my bath standing in my bath he was round the age of 14-16 he was tall , brown hair, dark blue polo shirt with a little white bird symbol on like a seagull and he was wearing trackies he was standing there folding his arms and staring. I just don't know why then there was a boy sat down at the end of my bed and also I saw a teenage boy at my bf's old house wearing black a black tracksuit he was looking at me. They don't harm you trust me I'm going through the same thing
not just that I recognise them like from a dream or a past life so I look at them and I smile cause I recognise them. I have this voice inside my head telling me bewaring me of bad things even in my dreams. I feel sorry for them because there only young its gets me so emotional. If you want this to stop get some ghost hunters in which I wouldn't or go to church and talk to a priest. They are really nice the ghosts but they kind of think its there house which it isn't I'm 16 and we are both gifted cause we can see them even my mobile can see them we need to ask them why are they here? Do they need help? And that cause they wouldn't show up other wise we must have something in us which they like we are gifted

Thanks Martin for your thoughts. As they make valid points, I just wanted to state that I have been having these dreams prior to my pregnancy. Do you have an idea of what else it could possibly be?

Hi Lauren, a few points come to mind: new mothers are known to be prone to some anxiety regarding their kids and it may manifest in dreams, but on the other side, maybe you are seeing people who were close to that person before they incarnated as your daughter and are just keeping an eye on her now and then. Just a thought.
