I recently had a pretty noteworthy experience a few days ago. I woke up in the really early hours, and basically saw this black shadow, cloak-like, fall over my eyes, not as if it were smothering me (like you usually feel with sleep paralysis) but it felt as if my entire body had been plunged in freezing water.
This isn't the first time I've seen this blanket-like shadow, but it was always out of the corner of my eye. I sometimes feel as if I'm 'watched' by some unknown presence, and occasionally I become freezing after being absolutely fine seconds before - I get the feeling this shadow apparition is responsible. However, it spoke to me for the first time that morning: I clearly heard a voice near my ear say "respect your parents" before it disappeared.
It's never been as bold as that before, but now I'm confused, I hadn't thought much of this shadow before now, thinking it was just something I was 'picking up', ever since I've begun noticing other odd things around me, but now I'm not so sure.
There currently is a rift going on between me and my parents lately, and no doubt I've been producing more than my fair share of negative vibes... I wonder whether this shadow is less sinister than it appears - is the shadow that reprimanded me a spirit?
