Man With The Black Hat


Last night, I had a dream. I was leaving a house, not mine, saying goodbye to my mother. I turn around to get into a car, not my car just a car, but when I turn around there is this tall shadow man with a hat that is almost like a fedora. He is smoking a cigarette, then a single burning ember of ash falls from his cigarette. I have this huge sense of danger but can't move talk much less scream. Then I wake up. I spoke with my aunt that also has my gift, if you can really call it that, and she said that the same man came to her as a child and that my grandmother who also has this "gift" told her how to shut it out.

I don't want to shut him out, I want to know what he want with me and my family. If anyone has any idea who he might be please tell me. While I have had this gift my entire life it is just now becoming more of a pain in my butt. In the past month I have had three different ghosts visit me. Why you ask, I have no clue its not like I know how to help them, I don't even know how to really talk to them they always disappear to quickly. If anyone knows anything about who he might be or if you have had a similar experience please please please help me out here, I'm only 17 I can barely worry about school and my girlfriend much less these ghosts.

he sounds/feels like he is of the priesthood that created the Nicene Creed and slaughtered teh women and children to "purify" christianity. You're chose if you would like to talk to him. He's a ghost for a reason though. Read the curse at the end of revelations...

chrissy you need prayers and protection. There is a gate open near you. I'll send the message up and see if it is suppose to be or not. Highly concentrated source of power where things can come through.

Calm your mind, I've experienced the same thing but I've got my dead grandfather as my guardain angel so I just call on him for help.

You're mind is astral projecting and you haven't gotten realligned with your yet so can't move it.

Like I said prayers. Email if you need more help. Blessing of the Lord be with you.

listen to your family shut them out for now. They can visit you in your dreams if they want to talk, but they are intruding in your waking life. Pray, put up a shield, ask angels to surround and protect you. Email me if you still need help.

Careful they may be demons, don't fall into temptation...

I have been asking people for years that very same question and it so happened that I came across the website. Ever since I was little I could see spirits. I could not actually see them as if I was looking at another person. But like a quick glance and I kind of have to second guess myself and I just tell myself that I'm just seeing I would always know when something is there because I would feel a presence when I would walk into a house or yard. When I would sleep, my eye would be shut but I could see everything around me. My chest would feel heavy and I felt like I was paralysed. What would really freak me out was when I would see spirits like a little girl staring at me or a lady coming out of my closet mirror doors trying to give me a necklace. I would hate it because I would get so scared that I would try to wake myself up, I would flip out because I could see everything as if I was awake but I wouldn't be and the more and more I would try to move the more freaked out I would get. The one that stuck with me and was the man dressed in black and wearing a black hat like all of ya'll stated in your experiences. Every time I would see him was when I would see him walking towards me. His presence was very strong. I would feel very frightened when he would come. Every time he would come, I would try to call out for someone to wake me because I would be so scared. Four years ago we had just moved to a different apartment and I had fell asleep and I could see everything around me but I could not move again. But my visitor wasn't the man in the hat and black clothes. It was a a demon or a devil. It was very muscular, big and strong, and horns that curled back. His eyes were dark. He always stayed in the shadows of my ceiling and then jumped on the top of my chest. I screamed for my husband to wake me up but I could move or even make a noise. That demon or devil just laughed as if he got a thrill of me being helpless. Finally I awoke and after that experience I always had a problem sleeping at night. I was scared and tired of having experiences like that. For a while everything was fine and I haven't had an experience like that again until recently we moved to a different apartment it happened again. For some reason everyone in these apartment complex have said that the experienced paranormal activities. This time I fell asleep and I could see everything in my room and my husband asleep beside me but I couldn't move. The man dressed in black and that wears the black hat came to me again and put is hand on my face and he caressed my face and said," I haven't seen you in a while." Of course I freaked out couldn't move and this time when I looked a my husband and cried out for him to wake me up. (I force a cry out so strong) My husband woke me up and said ask if I was alright and he said that I was crying in my sleep. After that time of succeeding in discovering how to get my husband to wake me up when I am stuck like that. I realize that I can't control it. He says that I cry in my dreams and it scares him. My grandmother is really ill. Last month I laid down to go to sleep and I knew my body was asleep but I could see my grandmother laying beside me and this demon sucking the life or aura around her. I could see it glowing around her and this creature laughing at me because I couldn't move. Now I have been asking people what that means. I know all of this sounds crazy for anyone to hear but I figure I would ask and maybe someone might be able to shed some light in making my sleep a little bit easier. What I want to know is why are all the things happening? What are they trying to tell me or what does this mean? I don't know who to ask about this?

Many people have described seeing 2 main types of shadow people: those wearing hats, like the one you saw, and hooded figures. The user Rain has a special interest in shadow people, so you may want to get in contact with him.

My feeling is that this shadow person may be connected to your family. Shadow people seem to follow some of us around, and there are many theories as to why that is... But the truth is, we don't know that much about them.

But I've never heard of a shadow person smoking before, so was it really a shadow person in the sense of the type that we are all thinking of?

I have seen this man once before, not in a dream though but exactly as described, he approached me as an enemy and put my friends in danger, be careful of him and whatever you do, do not let him know your fears and weaknesses

I speak to spirits on a regular basic and connect with ones around people. And what I get from this being is that hes a very old energy that been around for a very long time. Hes not here to harm you in anyway but more as a protector, he says your going through a lot of crap at the moment and Is concerned about you and your well being, he says that you haven't been yourself and are quite down on yourself. He will not harm you but he may scare you as I feel he will come closer to you at some stage. He has a funny energy about him it doesn't feel dangerous or nasty just a bit weird. He tells me your dreams may even get a bit more vivid or real feeling in the future. But to try and control your emoitions in your dreams. All I can say is when he is around see how your feeling about yourself when he is around as there may be a connection.
Hope this helps

I'm pretty sure they are separate entities. I have little experience with physical psychic abilities but I've seen these so many times it is rather normal. Several of them wear the fedora but they were different heights. They have never bothered me but one has attacked my sister but she said she upset it. So don't upset him. Sorry I can't tell you more but that's all I know of them. 😕

I saw this Shadow person 15 years ago. I was in between sleep and waking up and could not move.

I tried to talk however I could not. He was standing at the foot of my bed. My wife at the

Time was laying next to me sound asleep. He just looked at me and left the room. After some

Time I was able to move and talk. At that time I was very afraid. I could not sleep the

Rest of the night. My wife shared with me that she heard nothing. I cried for some time

That night however it was not one of those out of control crying lol. I think that he may

Have been one of the 24 elders that is spoken about in the bible. I have an understanding

About these elders. They are humans that controls the outcome of what happens on this

Planet. They have skills, powers and tech. That have been handed down to them for hundred

Of years. No one can control them or even know who they are. They come and go as they

Please. There plan is to bring peace to this world and at the same to to other planets. We

Have free will however they will step in to help you are to erase your mind to keep a

Person from harming or changing the course. Part of the plan is doing aways with negative

Or putting a check on negative so that it can not control. This will change the worlds as

We know it now. The air, people, animals etc will all be in harmony with there leader who

Is the Supreme Being. Know longer will you have negative thoughts that keep you from doing

What you plan. We will be able to use all of our brain powers. At the time that I'm writing

The the negative force is trying to stop me with many things like Internet stop working etc.

The will happen to many people from time to time sometimes its to help you and other time

To stop you. I'm not a good writer at all however if it is your will to understand me you

Will. Ever a child can share the truth or even help us if we are willing to listen. Peace
PS I did a painting about 15 years ago of the Shadow person.

I had a similar experience although I wouldn't say this guy had a black hat. I am a lightworker, mostly associated with the angelic realm however these days I seem to be branching out into new experiences. Anyways, in my dream I'm in an outdoor restraunt/bar in Brazil. Its all wood and open concept and I'm standing on an upper sort of tier looking down into what looks like a sunken living room part of this bar. I see a man, he's sitting down at one of the tables. I recognize him although his hat is down and I can't see his face because he is looking at the table. Keep in mind here that its a straw sorta hat, not black or shadow like at all. In my dream I keep waiting for him to look up so I'm staring down at him. He finally looks up and his eyes are red, he speaks to me and says "are you ready to meet the devil". It was by far one of the scariest dreams I've had. I was just developing this new ability to see angels so I went to someone and got help because the dreams kept coming. She told me that when you start to work for the light, you will get challenged by the dark. It will try to fill you with fear so that you can't carry out your mission of love and light to the people. I had to do a cleansing and I lined my boxspring with 24 clear quartz crystals to create a grid of protection. It works well... Unless you sleep somewhere else then you just have to deal with it. I have called on god in my dreams and learned that I can fight back. Anyways, I know this doesn't sound like the shadow guy but the hat thing made me want to tell my story. The angels are strong, the Archangel Michael totally rocks when you need protection... All you have to do is ask.

Wow,this guy gets around! I was just talking to my neighbor who had the same exprience. He walks through her apartment and actually says hello and he never let's her see his face, he always tilts his hat downward but she says when she see's him walk by he just goes through the front door, like transparent. He is tall and wears a hat and dresses in black. I told her not to be afraid, he may be your protector. My neighbor is elderly and lives alone and her son sometimes checks on her but she is very physic and has been since she was a child. I believe enity or sprits are drawn to people who have a good kind heart and who are blessed with certian gifts, you have a gift. Don't be afraid of it, just take control of it and use it to benefit yourself and others. Good luck

I have had expiriance with shadow people as well but not in a dream. My expiriances happen in real life. The shadow man you described is a very common one, as in he is seen a lot not multiple of him. Anyway he may nit want to actualy hurt you I think he is a protector. I was walking along the side walk and across the road on the other side I saw him th shadow man he looked odd so I wanted to make sure my eyes weren't playing tricks on me. I began to walk toward him and all of a suddan he lundged toward me. He went straight through me and I felt a little force enough to knock me off my feet I fell back. Now I know now it seems as though he attacked me I thought so to but the next thin that happened supprized me a car flew past me before my eyes. If I ha still been standing there I would have been hit. So that is my reasoning on why I think that shadow man is actualy good.

I believe that you were visited by an entity.
Did anything big happened to you or to your family after this dream?

Next time you see him; try your best to calm down and ask him why he is visiting you 😐

Hey...I'm new here but I wanted to offer you something... Who knows, it could help. I had something SO scary happen last night but I can't post it right now because that part is down at the moment, so I guess I want to acknowledge the "annoyance" factor, because that's what I would want.:)
I would start by asking your angels to come forth and protect you. If you aren't familiar with them google dorreen virtue and use that as a base. Then I would meditate as someone said and ask that guy what he wants. How can you help him? Tell him you aren't cool with him just sitting there staring at you but you know he wants something so to please speak up in a way you can understand.
Then I would state affirmations over and over in your day life that you are safe and that only good comes your way.
Maybe he's not speaking because you haven't given him permission? Its always creepy when people don't speak... In waking life or dreams.

Lastly, I would ask the Universe (in whatever way you see fit) what you are supposed to do with this talent. I believe its there if you want it... Since you are 17, theoretically, you are a young adult, legal wise, you are still a child. It could be this is happening because you are at a point in your life where you are still open (like children very much are) while being able to grasp this very adult concept. These ghosts could be coming to you to see how "open" you are. Which ironically you are here asking how you can be more "open"... Hmm. I call this synchronicity. Its up to you I think. If you want it, learn to own it. If you don't, send it away.

Best of luck to you! And don't forget... Life is easy and good. Just be 17 right now...;) That's your biggest job. Believe me, this stuff will come up again if the time isn't right.

Righteous Anger, Calmness, and Happiness are the best emotions to use, they naturally build up energy. Make sure it's anger and not hate though.

Hmm. He may be a powerful Shadow. Ask yourself 'Do you think it's human?'

Your intuition is best when dealing with matters like these. It's ultimately up to you what to do about him. Don't approach him lightly, but if you do, DO NOT FEAR HIM. Fearing beings gives them power. Be confident. They will not hurt you unless you let them.

he coule be the one that you need to talk to. He might know more about your family situation. Meditation is what helps most of us about ourselve, past lives, even stop future conflicts. Meditate about that shadowy man, and ask it to talk to you, force it if you must. That man could be your families protector.
