Shadow Man Attacks in Australia

Anne Williams of Sydney, Australia, was roused at about 3 a.m. in 2005 by something in her room. It was not friendly.

“One early morning I felt so strongly that there was a presence standing next to my left as my bed was right in the corner of the wall,” Anne said. “I felt as though I was blocked, like something was standing over me or wanted to scare me.”

She didn’t understand what she saw.

“As I opened my eyes to see what the hell it was, there stood on my left side of the bed a black cloaked hooded figure,” she said.

The thing leaned over Anne, it’s face gray and snowy “like a TV screen when it’s all fuzzy,” Ann said. Its eyes were black and sunken in the snowy face.

“I screamed and instantly I was pinned to the bed, the only body part I could move was my neck area, everything else was locked to the bed,” she said.

Anne lie on her back, trying to scream as the figure leaned into her.

“I felt that it shoved its arm down my neck and was choking me as nothing came out of my mouth,” she said. “Like no noise. I could not even hear myself scream, but I was.”

Tears ran down her face, soaking into her pillow as she tried to scream … but couldn’t.

“I was trying to get up which I could not,” she said. “I felt that it was trying to scare me to death.”

Then the black, cloaked figure increased the terror.

“After a while all of these horrible things are happening, I got more strength in myself,” she said. “The figure decided to scare me more. It half went inside me and was cold like ice. As it went in me I felt so sick.”

Anger began to rage through Anne as the shadow figure pushed itself into her.

“I started to get pissed off as this piece of shit was trying to hurt me,” she said. “So I thought, that’s it I’m going to pray to God.”

She lie there, still pinned to the bed, choking, crying and trying to scream.

“I really felt that I was going to have a heart attack as this thing was so powerful,” she said. “I had the strength in my soul to pray to God and ask for it to leave me alone.”

Then she opened her eyes to look into the snowy, cloaked face of her attacker.

“I said angrily in my soul, ‘leave me alone, whatever you are … Leave me alone, you are not welcome to be in my body,’” Anne said. “It’s mine … you don’t belong here.”

She lie still, locked to the bed, face awash with tears. And, eventually, the cloaked shadow man just let her go.

“I got up all in a sweat and … I was like, ‘I saw a ghost.’ I felt victimized, and felt like no one could help me,” she said. “Well, I know that God helped me.”

Anne still can’t figure what happened. Her mother told her it was the spirit of a rapist.

“I don’t know what it was but I feel that it was evil and wanted to kill me,” Anne said. “I wonder why this happened to me? It’s all a mystery.”

The shadow being returned the next day, but Anne said prayer drove the black, cloaked thing from her.

“I flew out of bed and prayed to God to take it away,” she said. “I opened my eyes and it was gone. Thank God for his help.”

But the thing wasn’t gone forever. A year later, Anne was living in another house when the thing came back.

“Again, it was early in the morning,” she said. “I was sleeping on my right side and in my ear someone whispered in a male voice ‘I’m here.’ I was so tired I just said in a mumble, ‘Go away, I want to sleep.’

“I felt a chill when it was next to me,” she continued. “And I felt sick when it spoke to me.”

Anne doesn’t know if her attacker was a demon, or a ghost, but as of January 2008, she hasn’t been visited again.

Sorry to ruin a good spooky story but this sounds like a classic example of sleep paralysis - see the Wikipedia entry on it and compare the symptoms.

Jeff H. said...

I second that, though it does make a good compelling story. My partner suffer from sleep paralysis occasionally and her episodes are very similar to this.

Just because the scientific community calls this condition 'sleep paralysis ', and has witnessed the symptoms under controlled conditions does not exclude the possibility that something is objectively occurring, the reality of which is not directly discernable to onlookers. Do not dismiss the shadow realm so lightly.

Unfortunately, I've experienced both sleep paralysis and demonic oppression.
While similar, the symptoms of an oppressive attack go FAR beyond a paralytic dream state.
Our friend in Australia might do well to examine BOTH possibilities and their respective solutions.

Has it come back? Doesn't matter what other people think or say, I doubt you would make this up! When that (whatever it is) starts touching my leg, I grab the four Holy Bible's I always leave on my bed and put them all over me and and start praying, it makes him weaker. Especially when I think how happy I'll spend eternity in Paradise and not remember it! HA! I think they might be people like you and me with powers just hurting us because they can.

You are dealing with demonic oppression and it's life threatening! Read "secrets of spiritual warfare" and take action! Examine your life and eliminate activities which give "sin" permission to enter you.

Brandishing the bible won't work, you actually have to read the NT each night and say protection prayers daily.

This sounds like a classic out of body experience and an encounter with a 'Shadow Person". I have had many of these myself and the similarities are uncanny, particularly the sense that the being was trying to scare you. Another similarity is the fuzzy, t.v. screen like appearance. This is a real phenomena. It's not a dream. This is different. I understand people wanting to pass it off as purely psychological in nature. Only those of us who have had the experience can really be sure.

5 Reasons to Try Electric RC helicopters
RC helicopters capture people's interest since their very first inception. They stand as one of the most fascinating field of the RC hobby world. Very few can resist its charm. Nevertheless, not too long ago they also carried an extremely heavy price tag and required more maintenance than a ten-years-old car. To make matters worse, flying one required countless hours of practice and tremendous amount of patience. Here's the secondDS spin-off of Sony's great Ratchet & Clank franchise, which the High Impact games studio has successfully shrunk to fit a 4.3-inch screen. Featuring an unbreakable polycarbonate lens, the flashlight Jr. Luxeon Reach is made of anodized machined aircraft aluminum and includes a push-button tail cap for steady on and momentary on/off operation.

hey. im glad i found this site.. i had the same experience so i wanted to know what is that shadow.

pink said...

im glad i found this. i had the same experience several weeks ago. i was at my boyfriend's apartment for a sleepover. the bed was on the right coner. We were fast asleep when I felt my left shoulder couldn't move. Its heavy like someone's weight was on top of my shoulder-arm. That feeling made me a bit awake or half asleep that I massaged my shoulder-arm thinking that theres something wrong with circulation.of blood flow while my eyes were closed. I stopped because I was too sleepy. Several seconds after while my eyes were closed a vision of the room popped up. I could see 2 shadows on the wall on the left of the bed talking about me as if they're going to invade my body. I knew it was real and its happening that very moment as his huge hands coming near my body. Then in fear I jumped to my boyfriend on my right at the very same time his dogs barked furiously towards the wall. It scared the hell out of me! yea i know that was weird because i saw them even my eyes were closed. I knew it was real especially that the dog barked furiously on the wall the same time i jumped. i was saved tho my boyfriend accidentally kicked me in.surprise since we slept on opposite positions.
