My Experience: I’ve only told this story to maybe three people. Mostly because I haven’t been able to make much sense of it myself and it happened a really long time ago. I’m 23 years old, and this encounter happened when I was 5 or 6 years old (1998-1999).
My mom got me ready for bed as usual; she tucked me in, turned off my light, and left to be with my father in their bedroom. Their bedroom was directly adjacent to mine, so I was very prone to run in there if I had a bad dream or could not sleep. In my bed, I faced my door, which was always open and lead to a long hallway that ended at the open guest room door.
In the middle of the night, I woke up (as I had done many times before) to use the bathroom. Before getting out of bed, I looked down the hall, as it is the first thing I see when I open my eyes. At the end of the hall, directly in front of the guest room is a tall, shadowy figure. The figure seemed to be taller than any adult I had ever seen, and from its outline it appeared to have long, wavy hair and was wearing a flowing robe of some sort. It looked as though its clothing was flowing in the wind, but we were indoors. I saw it see me and I froze. Suddenly I felt cold, and my blood turn to pins and needles, like the feeling you get when one of your limbs has fallen asleep from you laying on it for a long period of times. I wanted to scream for my parents, but I was unable to make any sounds. Being only 5 or 6 years old, I thought the best way to handle the situation would be to take cover under my blanket. Minutes later I emerged from under my comforter to see the figure had moved down the hallway and closer to my room. I realized the only way to keep the figure at bay would be to not take my eyes off of it.
After many minutes of staring at the figure, praying it didn’t move any closer, it extended its arm to me and gestured for me to come to it. I shook my head, which was all I could think to do. It gestured again, and again and I continually refused with tears running down my face and not being able to make any sounds nor did I have any feeling in my limbs. I stayed awake until the sun began to rise and the figure disappeared and the feeling returned to my limbs. I sprinted to my parents’ room and got into their bed and wouldn’t sleep in my own for a very long time.
