Jason, I am reading your book Darkness Walks and I think it is a terrific book, well written and very informative.

I think that all people should read this book and become informed about the truth of our reality.

I also experienced a shadow person with a hood when I was about ten years old as I was awakening in the early morning. It was still dark and I was as usual sleeping on my back with my arms outstretched to the sides of the bed. (I have not slept like that ever since)
As I awoke I realized that I could not move, but yet I distinctly felt someone was holding my outstretched left hand as if in a handshake. I could not release the grasp. I started praying and opened my eyes. Then on the left side of the bed I saw a tall very dark hooded figure (no face that I could see) I told it to leave, I was terrified. I kept praying all the time and finally after what seemed like forever it gradually disappeared.

It never came back as far as I know but I have never forgot this and I have never slept on my back again with arms outstretched again.
Thank you for letting me tell my story.

I stumbled upon your blog and thought I'd drop my own personal experience with "shadow people". I myself never have heard the term before,but after hearing Paranormal podcast which mentioned Black eyed boys, I decided to look into it.

Mine was similar to the poster before me, I was laying down in my bed which rested against a wall in the corner. I was drifting off listening to some music and relaxing. Next thing, I fall asleep and the music fades. there was some time that passed and I started to startle awake and noticed I felt as my bed had been moved into the middle of the room. I couldnt get up for some reason and I felt absolute paralyzed. I started to get scared at this point and I crooked my head up and saw three shadow figures standing around my bed humming and just gazing at me. I couldnt make out their features in their faces or anything. I used to meditate alot and read some books on lucid dreaming, so I thought at the moment that what was going on and I asked them to leave..but they stayed. and then I asked again if I could please wake up now cause Im starting to get scared. then I woke up and realized the same song that was on when I went to sleep was ending. i must have feel asleep for a whole 3 or 4 minutes and came back, or maybe something else. That day always stuck with me.

In the summer of 1990 I was living in my grandmother's house in rural central Virginia. I wasn't use to living alone and sleeping in the country so I always had difficulty falling asleep or going into a deep sleep. For instance, at night when I was sleeping I could hear the "click" of the motion detector flood lights come on if they were triggered and I would popup out of bed and look out the window and usually see a cat, raccoon or opossum traveling through the back yard. The hall bathroom had a nightlight on that easily cast enough light in the hallway making it clearly visible once your eyes adjusted.

The first time I saw the shadow man was one evening around 2am. I can remember waking up - not sure why - and then patting my beagle. In the evenings she would split her time between the bed and the floor and this evening she was on the bed. Anyway, once my eyes came into focus there he was - a shadowy man almost completely transparent - standing in the bedroom, but not in the direct light of the hallway. I couldn't tell if he was looking at me or not because the features of his face were not visible and he wore a hat that tilted down toward the front of his face (reminds of the Red Hat Linux guy) and cloak with a flaring collar. He made no sudden movements and we simply stared at each other - or should I say I stared. I wasn't afraid and eventually he just left (vanished). From time to time late in the evening he would make his appearance for short periods of time and then simply vanish. It was one of the weirdest things I have ever experienced.

A couple of years ago I started listening to a show called Coast to Coast. On one of the shows I was listening to they started talking about shadow people and I couldn't believe my ears. I had no idea other people had experienced the same (similar) thing I had.

In any event, I haven't seen the shadow man since that summer. Your guess is as good as mine as to why he was visiting me. Where he - or they - come from is also anyone's guess. I just started reading your book this evening and followed the link to your site. Hopefully, it will be a good informative read.

I don't even know what to do anymore...
i have seen these 'shadow people' since i was little. My mum tells me stories of when i was younger and i had a best friend that was an old woman and i would play with my dolls with her.This is all a vague memory to me.A couple of years ago i was in the bathroom and i seen a shadow person staring at me he wouldn't leave. I thought i was screaming but no one could hear me then it suddenly left and ran down the stairs. After this they have been here all my life.

I have been waking with cuts and bruises, i had things thrown at me, breathing on me, fondling while i try to sleep,hearing things, things moving and i just don't know what to do. The house has been blessed but who would want to believe a 15 year old girl that thinks she sees things others cant.I now suffer from depression after my dad died and have counselling and therapy every Wednesday.My mum sees these things also. please just message me if anyone can help
