The 'Shadow Figure' Had A Face

I recently received the following account:

Hi, I have seen a lot of things over the years- like, a LOT (it runs in my family), but I saw something about two weeks ago that I can't make any sense of. Normally, if I research enough, I can find out what the entity was. Not this time. I have absolutely no idea what this was.

I was in our downstairs bathroom one afternoon, and the door was open because no one else was home. I noticed some movement outside the bathroom on the nearby wall. I figured it was probably just a shadow person, but it wasn't like any that I've ever seen. It was fairly small and compact, and it was doing these somersaults right on the wall, it almost looked like part of it was IN the wall and the side facing me was outside of it.

I remembered how one of my kids had asked me recently a lot of questions about shadow people, and I thought I'd try to take in more details on this thing, especially since there was no bad vibe coming off it. There was no fear, anger, etc., no bad smell, no indication whatsoever that it had ill intent. So, I stood up and walked around a bit to make sure it wasn't a trick of light or anything. It wasn't. It was spinning around and around right there on the wall. It didn't seem to care that I was walking around in front of it.

My daughter had asked me a few weeks before to try to find out what shadow people want, but I don't think I'll ever do that. I don't think speaking to them is a good idea, really. With this one, though, I finally straight-up asked it what it wanted.

As soon as I said that, it stopped spinning and turned so that its face was toward me. Its face was very large for its size, and it looked pale and skeletal. It also looked surprised. I seriously think it either had no idea I was there or had no I idea that I could see it before I said something. I didn't like the look of the face, and it was kind of shocking to me. I've never seen one with much of a face before. I took off into the next room, and I haven't seen that thing since.

I seriously have no idea what was happening. I can't even come up with any decent parameters to search for it. Any searches I've done have turned up nothing at all. I can't find any stories, legends, cryptids, myths, etc., that sound like this thing. I was hoping that with your site and so many humanoid sightings cataloged, you may have heard of something like this?

Sincerely, LS


I recently received the following account:

I was sitting in my room of my house with my Chow mix dog. She is not scared of anything. Actually hard to keep her away from harm. She suddenly whined, got up with tail between her legs and slumped head down out of the room. I said 'what's wrong girl?' when a small face peeked around the door frame. A black eyed typical grey. 3' tall. I said "oh hell no!" Then I am unable to move and there are 5 or more around me poking kinda seemed happy to see me or that's the feeling I got.

Next...I'm in a large metallic room and an object is circling the length of the top of this round room. Opposite me stands a thin tall grey and I feel as though I am expected to return it to him via mind which I did. Ok...next I remember sneaking on another vessel and encountering red lizard like being that was guarding or running a large room with children. Mixed children it seems...big heads some some black eyed. Others more human looking. I then flash to lights and sirens kinda going off everywhere. And running with children in tow. Next I am looking into the eyes of this little child who's eyes are so large and such a true brown color. No mixing of colors like most eyes but just a solid big brown iris. Very mesmerizing. But we had soot like black burnt marks on our faces and she was crying and I cried as well. I remember thinking it was such a fight I could only save one child and I collapsed to my knees. At this point I felt as though my heart was stopping I felt as I was going to die. Just then one of the smaller guys hung a bright bright light blue glowing I can't express how bright it was considering it was no more than a grain of sand size. It sank into my chest as I awoke in my bed finishing the statement. "Oh hell no!"

I have and never will forget that. I have had other instances but nothing that leaves me with as much memories. I need to know what happened. GG
