Shadow People, Astral Spiders, & Hypnagogia

 

So what are Shadow People, Spiders and Beings?

We all know what spirits or ghosts are, so I suppose we can place them in that category except, there is no proof that these beings are dead, are repetitive echoes, a haunting or formless.

They appear void at times if not strangely solid. By solid, they are still dark as Shadow but an even blacker color outlines their features.

One of the most common sightings has been the figure of a man or someone in a cloak. Sometimes they are seen wearing a hat or hooded sweat shirt. Whatever they are wearing, they lack color.

Imagine– you are staring into an actual person who is nothing more than solid smoke or even slightly transparent at times. The strange thing is, you can catch detailed outlines concerning their face or clothes.

It’s hard to think that anything which appears to be solid or merely bleak can have any sort of outline about it. But people have reported that at times they can make out their features clearly as well as the smaller details of their clothes. Some reports claim they have glowing eyes, mostly red. Some reports claim that they act unaware (as if you are not there)– as if passing from one room, while others claim these beings have had their attention directly on them.

Many reports claim that the energy or feeling in the room changed to something fearsome. Other reports claim that the person witnessing this act was attacked, unable to scream, or paralyzed.

Now before we fix our minds on a notion of fear—let’s reserve that until later because I have some theories of my own.

When do these sightings happen?

I call it the Twilight (No, Stephanie Meyers has nothing to do with this) but a more technical word is Hypnagogia. Basically, it is known as a sleep paralysis which has the attention of many doctors and scientists who are studying it. The easiest way to describe it is–

You go to bed, close your eyes, go to sleep.  Only you do not sleep deeply nor are you fully awake. You are stuck somewhere in between.

Now do not confuse this with sleep walking. That is NOT what it is. People who experience this are completely aware of everything that is going on around them. They can sit up in bed, walk through their house, pet a dog or see their wife or husband sleeping beside them. They can talk and interact even though their minds are not fully awake.

So what is so different during this time that they seem to think they’re partly asleep? Good question.

Even though they can interact with their normal environments, not everything is the same. It is as though they are lingering between two worlds. Their subconscious mind is in equal balance with their conscious mind.

Meaning, they are open to whatever may come, eyes open beyond the veil but their conscious minds do not have the draw backs–jerking them out of this moment or to prevent them from seeing, experiencing, and interacting with whatever may be.

This is when some people experience the Shadow Beings, Spiders, or other types of Other Worldly phenomena. It is NOT the only time, but this is a common one, as well as wide spreading.

Now it should be known that Science and Doctors have their own explanations of this but NOTHING is for certain simply because they’re pretty much clueless as to what Hypnagogia is and what these people are really discovering during this phase. The experts are blaming it on sleeping positions, among other things, saying that if someone sleeps on their back– that this is what causes it.

Now it should be noted that I did say above that this phenomena is becoming widely spread. That doesn’t mean  it did not exist before. I think because of the internet and the loss of fear in speaking about these things has made it possible for others to realize that they are not alone.  It should also be mentioned that Shadow beings have been reported since Ancient times but we will get more into that later.

A direct quote from Wikipedia concerning Hypnagogia:

Early references to hypnagogia are to be found in the writings of Aristotle, Iamblichus, Cardano, Simon Forman and Swedenborg.[11] Romanticism brought a renewed interest in the subjective experience of the edges of sleep.[12] In more recent centuries, many authors have referred to the state; Edgar Allan Poe, for example, wrote of the ‘fancies’ he experienced “only when I am on the brink of sleep, with the consciousness that I am so.

So you see it is not new by any means, only our awareness of it since we still seem to be in the Dark Ages concerning anything other than what is socially accepted. Being taught not to believe in such things or that it is against some sort of religion– has really blind sided us I think. 

Let it be also known that during Hypnagogia or what I call ‘Twilight’, Shadow people or beings are not the only thing experienced.

Many people claim that they have got up from their beds, walked out the door to new or past worlds. Some have experienced or revisited past lives or countries.

One woman I read about, reported standing by her bedroom window, waving to people who were passing by outside her home. They stood there waving at her while she waved back at them. At some point she snapped out of it, finding herself standing there waving– only the people she remembered in every detail were no longer present.

Other people report having long conversations with deceased relatives who are possibly standing by their bed or sitting in the same room with them. Some people claim that they are visited by those who are not dead. They have absolutely no idea what they are, but they do know death did not bring them to their bedrooms.

Now even though Twilight is not the only time this happens, this is one of the biggest reports of the Shadow Beings that people claim to experience. Possibly because our minds are so open during this stage and we can see beyond the Veil—my theory.

Now the down side–some people say that they are attacked. That this black mass or presence paralyzes them so that they can not move or even scream.

Others claim that they are not attacked but wake up finding these beings standing over them, simply watching which may be how they came to be called, ‘The Watchers’.

One woman I know claims to have woken up, been fully awake, while a young man in a hooded sweat shirt swept through her room and went out the window. Now she did not think that he jumped, but simply  leaped through his doorway, to where ever he came from. This woman has had this happen quite a few times, same boy, same details (except the exit)– only she was not experiencing Twilight during any of those times. In fact, she told me she had never experienced Twilight. She sees them wide eyed and awake.

So you see Twilight is not the only time you can experience this.

Many reports say that they were standing in their kitchen (or somewhere), felt the energy or the room temperatures change, caught something in the corner of their eye, turned around quickly and the Shadow Being was standing there, watching them.

Shadow or Astral Spiders

People claim to be sleeping or rather Twilight, while watching these HUGE spiders of abnormal size crawl around their beds, glide down over their heads from webs and so on.  By big—sizes ranging from fat puppy size to smaller.

At times they see smaller ones but it is usually the bigger ones that cause them the greatest shock and fright. It is usually scary enough to snap them out of the Twilight completely, where the spiders are then gone.

There hasn’t been to many people offering them any enlightenment concerning this. In fact, I was shocked that on these forums that I researched, to find that quite a few people who rattled away concerning their belief in the Shadow People in other threads, literally make fun of the people who were seeking answers concerning the spiders.

Unfortunately I can not give anyone any hard crusted evidence here but I can explain some common points about them.

One, you do not have to be in twilight to see them. Some people will see them there, wake up completely to find them still in their reality—fading away.

Two, no reports of anyone being bitten.

Three, no reports of anyone being attacked.

Four, some believe they are other dimensional.

Five, others don’t have a clue as to what the hell they are, although freaky, they don’t seem to be harming anyone or anything.

 

Well I hope we have touched based on some of this as I will probably write more about it later.

 

However, let me leave you with this question…

Have YOU had an experience with any of these Paranormal beings that you’d care to share?

  3. I have had my second astral spider episode in as many months. The first I wass fully conscious for. Massive spider on the ceiling, terrified! 2nd, last night. I was in a lucid dream and flying through portals. I suddenly stopped in complete darkness and one was directly in front of me. The terror was so strong I immediately woke up. It came through with me and was there, in this world, fully conscious mind for about 1 minute

  4. For a few months now, my 3 year old son has been waking up in the middle of the night screaming complaining that there are spiders in his bed and room. They travel to my room when he’s in my bed as well. When it started, he made me tear apart his entire bed and room clearing it of everything making sure there weren’t any spiders. Took me a week to get him back in his bed. Then his fairy showed up. The spiders got a little less. Then the last week has been intense to the point I felt like they were paranormal beings. So I’m researching. This all makes sense from what you wrote in the article to what everyone has been commenting. Although my son has said that they were in his mouth and chasing him down the stairs. Two nights ago it was the worst case ever. They were laying on top of him. Then followed him to my room and they were sleeping on my bed under the covers. He refused to sleep under the covers and on the bed. He had to sleep on top of me. If you have any info on how I can help him with this, I would truly appreciate it. We aren’t sleeping well and it breaks my heart he gets so scared..

    Thank you so much and Blessed Be 💚💫🔮✌🏻

    1. Bless his little heart i have been staring at your post for a while as i really wish i could help. Hopefully someone will have the answers, i can only say what helped me and that was buying some palo santo and my boyfriend would light it and twirl the smoke in circles in each corner of the room. I would ho a bit crazier with it and twirl the smoke in the places where the spiders had entered too as they come through walls/sofas pretty much anything. I noticed that it only happens when i am a little overtired and it occured to me that if they are trying to get to my spine to take my energy then why do it when im over tired?so i thought that it is only happening when i have a type of energy (possibly nervouse energy) which must leave me open and vulnerable somehow. I would try to get him as relaxed as possible in the day make his bedroom as relaxed as possible (maybe a dash of lavender on his pillow) warm milk before bed, warm lighting etc and try to reassure him that the palo santo keeps them away and maybe let him do it with you. It helped me and i hope it helps you too. I dont think the spiders want to harm him they just want some type of energy that he is creating so maybe you can try to relax too. Maybe find ways to create a relaxing atmosphere in the house and hopefully they will go away. This is my personal conclusion and im not sure if i am correct so please welcome other suggestions too as i am open and would love to understand more. Much love to you both and good luck xx

  5. It is not true that it happens when you lay on your back. I believe the spiders (which are big, glowing and look slightly mechanical) try to get to my spine as i have been laying on my sides before but can still see them (somehow) before i actually move to look with my eyes
