My name is Stephanie. I'm 25 years old and I've had some rare encounters with Shadowy figures, maybe twice. But just recently one appeared in my dream.
I fell asleep early around 7pm, woke up around 10pm and couldn't sleep again. Decided to pick up a book and read, at around 2am I called it a night.
As I'm drifting off to sleep, I'm dreaming that I'm in a mansion. My sister is with me getting ready to go out and I'm in a bathing suit in a pool (that's inside the house). My sister makes a remark that I should go with her but I decide to stay. As she locks the door behind her, I see there is many locks on the door, about 10. After she leaves, it got really dark in the house. I decided to get out of the pool and turn on the lights, as I'm reaching the light, there was a jiggle of the door knob, like someone was trying to get in. I turn on the light but it wouldn't turn on. I go to another light, the same thing. So I'm sitting in pitch darkness. Scared. All of a sudden I'm holding a dog, a small white dog. I was scared and felt that someone finally broke into the house, so I pretended to be asleep.
As the dark shadow figure comes over to me the dog started to growl. It was a females voice, she leaned in toward me and asked "Are you awake?"
I forced myself out of there because I was so scared and shocked. Thing was when I was in my bed, my body started to stiffen and tingle and I could feel myself going back and I could hear her voice asking me if I was awake, I felt that she was in my room. I started to move my fingers and managed to become fully in control. When I checked the time it was 2:50am.
I have had many crazy dreams, but this didn't feel like one. It started off as a normal dream (when my sister was there). However the minute she left, it felt like something different. I was wondering if anyone has experienced something similar to this and if so how did they react? What could have I done differently? Thank you!
