My first encounter with a shadow person happened on March 12, 2008. It was evening, the house was quiet, and I was relaxing on the couch in the living room. I often sit and stare as I am depressed a lot. I was staring off into the distance when something caught my eye. I looked through the dining room to the hallway where the steps go to the second floor. What I saw didn't scare me, but it took me by surprise. I saw a partial person, dark and shadowy, who looked to be half in this dimension and half in another. It was moving from right to left down the hall and it turned and went up the stairs. Just 1 or 2 steps and then it vanished. A partial torso was visible and part of the left arm and head, but the bottom trailed off, no legs to speak of.
I have been told various times by different people and I have noticed too, that I have some spirits here in my home. Maybe a spirit of my husbands father and his late friend haunt us here. So when my brother , who lived with us for 3 years got cancer and passed on January 08, started to hang around here too I just thought it was one of them.
I just thought I saw a ghost. But then on February 12, 09 I was in my brothers old room, where my friend now stays, and something happened again. This time I was on the bed, across the bottom, laying on my stomach, while my friend was in a sitting position at the top of the bed. We were both looking at the TV on one side of the room and opposite the door way. I just happened to look back at the open door and saw a figure standing there. It was tall and wide and big shouldered and gruff looking but most of all it was a dark black color. There were no features. I immediately looked back to the TV not realizing what I just saw and when I quickly turned back again it was gone. I was dumb founded and I looked at my friend and said, "I just saw someone standing there, and then they vanished". The more I thought about it the more I was convinced it wasn't any of my normal ghosts. This was because of the size of the shadow. It had to be 6'5" and none of my ghosts were that big.
I do not think any of my thoughts or feelings at the time had and bearing on this encounter. However it could be that my total home situation (which is extremely stressful and angry) had something to do with it. I am a depressed person, and I am on disability for this condition. I am medicated with anti depressants and scytzo drugs. They keep me level minded. I don't get angry and I don't get sad or mad or excited or scared. But they don't make me see things. So I am pretty sure these were honest visions. I did not try to communicate with these shadow people. Nor do I think they were trying to communicate with me.
