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?

  1. Thanks for the fourm, last night I went to be and around 5:30 I recall having a dream of which I woke up from and then turned over on my back opened my eyes and saw a young man,who I thought was my partner,in a black vest and shorts with red hefty cap in hand. I couldn’t see his face but he was brown skinned in complexion, I called for my partner and asked what he was doing,he did not answer,then I called for him again and he answered from the opposite direction. I then asked who is this man in the room? The being wasn’t scary nor did I feel threatened. He almost looked like he stepped back into the dark and vanished.


    1. The spiders are a form of parasite but also something else. The spiders are part of the forth dimension working through time lines to figure things out and to find minds. They are birthed in the minds of men and then enter into their souls to form minds inside of them to become people inside of people or voices often heard by schizophrenics. In life we are something here but we also can become something in the after life at the same time to form a body there, abductions, obes, astral projections take place in these realms. These spiders along with shadow people are used to keep us(allowed) from figuring ourselves out or even becoming ourselves after death to force us back into the reincarnation cycle. This problem revolves around control and two simple but moral problems which has divided man and angels. Those allowed and those not allowed. Those allowed will keep becoming something again and again and those not allowed will not become something again after this lifetime until they have become something many times. The argument is simple but yet very complex an angel has been here from the beginning of time becoming everything inside of itself and allowing everything you see around you. Man is new and has not the ability to allow himself this falls on the angels to do this and they will not allow more then one mind per self.

    2. Hello Lisa
      I would be more than happy to explain any part of what i said above in more detail if you wish this is just a very short summery of how this was done. I have had thousands and thousands of obes and astral projections in my life time and have experienced these phenomenon many times, along with shadows and many other things. the veil is set up like the kabbala with the five frequencies in each frequency we can become ourselves there while we are here to figure ourselves out.


    1. Hello Lisa,
      Thank you so much for this work you have been doing on this issue. I was a strong lucid dreamer for some time but at some point I also started having problems with spiders. I came across these spiders once in lucid dreaming but, in my case, I had a woman first, and later a man (white energy/spirit) literally dressed up like spider man interacting with me but never understood for what reason. Do you have any info on that too?.


    2. Hello Lisa. first of all i have been hearing voices for the past four years 24/7. My voices are not badly done and I have learned many things through them and through my higher self. I have had thousands and thousands of astral experiences and Obes in my life time showing me the many different levels of the veil and how they are put together. If you think about how things are set up, first you haev the universe you see around you then the veil and then something on the other side of the veil. In order for us to get form this side of the veil to the other side we must cross over it. The problem is someone else is living there and they do not want us there so they haev created many way to keep us form crossing over to the other side of the veil. each frequency has something there that controls this problem and the spiders are just one of these methods along with artificial intelligence(synthetic information systems), shadows, frontal thought genesis causing schizophrenia and many of the pushed thought symptoms that comes along with this diagnosis. The spiders are a form of parasite that is used to keep many from becoming themselves again after death.


    3. Powessy , I have seen spiders since i was about 6 years old . I have seen big ones now as a adult . I have also woken to see 3 gargoyle like dinasour birds , and a glowing squid like creature comming towards me .


  2. I have been going through this for as long asi can remember. I just had a happening lime rhks the other day… I couldn’t tell if i where awake or asleep. Reality or figment of imagination. A snake crawled in my bed what would have been the reasoning behind that.. All type of things occur and this article really put it in perspectives. I dont mind discussing things as a group but id really like to give u more intimate details via email. Please contact me… I just want to know why do i experince this. Help


  3. I dreamt that a huge black floating shadow walked into my living room and went into my body and through my mouth and I could feel it in there.


  4. I’ve noticed this phenomenon on several occasions. I hadn’t thought much of it until a few minutes ago. I was standing at the sink washing dishes and out of the corner of my eye an average height humanoid figure walked past my window from behind a tree. I thought it strange, as they were dressed head to toe in a jet black cloak. When I looked out the window, the figure was gone. I was, as far as I could tell, wide awake just doing chores.


  5. For the past year I wake up and will see a spider crawling. The first time it scared me because well I’m scared of spiders and second it was the size of my hand and hairy. I just stared at it as it crawled and disappeared. I’ve done this a lot and spiders vary in size. I also am not in a paralyzed state. Last night I woke up to see one crawling on papers next to my bed and I was fully awake because I reached out and moved the papers to see what the spider would do and it disappeared rather than scurrying off. I’m not sure why this started. My house is haunted and after reading about spirits I wondered if these two things are related? Or if it’s because of my spider phobia? Or what exactly? Just looking for answers.


    1. Thanks for the info on this strange topic.
      My experience sounds very similar to what others have reported.

      I have only gone through this twice; once in September 2016- tons of them all over my room, crawling everywhere and when I looked at them, they would scurry But not disappear, I jumped out of bed, turned the lights on and Still there… I had to go sleep in the guest room with a light on.
      Second time was last night, I saw 2. I decided to ignore them and went back to sleep.

      Our house is only 13 years old and our area a is still building lots of new subdivisions. We’ve been here 3 years and a few subtle weird things have happened, that are different from anything I’ve experienced in the past. Here I experienced sleep paralysis the first time in my life and I often think my cat or a family member is in the corner my eye, when I’m alone. An incident also occurred after the death of one of my oldest daughters friend; a display bowl randomly shattered on our kitchen table and loud thuds of things falling upstairs, but was unable to locate anything.
      Ive really only experienced mild paranormal in my life; no ghost sightings even at reportedly haunted locations, just lighting issues and mild shoulder touch once and in my other home after the death of a close loved one in 2008, we all experienced minor to moderate electrical things (light bulbs blowing to things like TV, elec. fireplace and baby monitor in a week).

      So Im open but the things have been more odd in the new house, easier to rationalize as nothing, not ghostly, and more un-personal, if that makes sense.

      My closest visual I can give to explain what creatures look like is a black Hoberman sphere, in collapsed form, that can crawl.

      I hope others keep us posted on their experiences, so maybe we can learn more.
      Oh, I was quite a walker and talker in my sleep as a child, so maybe there is something scientific, rather than paranormal about this, boring I know.


  6. I have been meditating for a about 4 years now. I don’t do it all the time. I stopped and started again recently and had what I think is my first out of body experience. I saw a creature shaped like a triangle but it was only a face. I saw a bunch of giant faces talking to me but I could not hear them. And I killed a giant spider that moved towards me. It was quick I freaked out and just reacted. This is the closest forum that has described what I saw. Can anyone give me advice on this ? I am also struggling with some weird things happening. Things disappear and I find them at a later time. Also when I try to meditate I feel myself getting lighter. I can hear someone calling me but I can’t see anything.


  7. I just experienced this today actually! I was terrified! Here are the 5 times I saw something, and everyone thinks I am crazy, or on something! (100% Sober every time!)

    1st time, and second time. I thought the shadow people were someone I knew, and always walked from the doorway to my bed. Leaned over then I jumped up turned on the lights, and they were gone.

    3rd time: I woke up to bugs like centipedes, spiders, and all the other scary bugs out there crawling all over me, my bed, and my floor. I jumped up ran out the door to brush them off while screaming, and they disappeared.

    4th Time: I was trying to fall asleep when something flew about a meter away off my fridge, and on top of me. I turned on the lights, and nobody was there!

    5th time: For weeks I had a scared feeling someone was in my house, or I was being watched, or, someone wanted to kill me, so I felt scared every night when I tried to sleep! I had just fell asleep for about an hour, and woke up to seeing a man bending over reaching for me!!! He was an old man about 60 or so, wearing a white cloak, but extremely dirty, and ripped. I think he had dark skin bald, but had a beard. He looked in really rough shape like he had been beaten, or something . I screamed to the top of my lungs swatting at him. I heard my boyfriend yelling at me asking what the hell is wrong? He was standing there, and saw the whole thing! Said nobody is even there! I had my eyes fully open, but don’t think I actually fell asleep. I shook to the bones for several mins, cause I was legit terrified!


  8. Then how did I AND my friend, in the middle of the afternoon, completely alert, see a shadow creature walk into my bedroom?


  9. I want to know if anyone experiences things like i do.. I have never experienced anything quite like in the article​, however I do understand the twilight theory. This is something I have thought for a long time. I have a very strange sleep pattern I sleep very lightly always half awake half aware yet half asleep in this twilight I always seem to sleep. In fact I lucid dream quite often also because of this because I’m aware I’m asleep and dreaming. However strange things have always happened to me when I slept since I was a child. More often then not strange things happen and I see and hear strange things as well. Sometimes they are extremely scary sometimes not. Last night was what brought me here to this site. I was sleeping then awoke with a very strange jerking frightening feeling. When I awoke I saw strange spinning floating glowing things in my room. What was especially strange was my dogs both of them were also awake and staring at them as well. When I saw them tho I didn’t feel scared and my dogs didn’t bark. Then they were just gone and my dogs went back to sleep so I did also. Only to have dreams full of these things to be awoken the same way about four or five times times to see them and my dogs were looking everytime as well. I know I was not sleeping when I saw them tho because I sleep very lightly and I know the difference between being awake and sleeping. This is not the only time I have seen things like this one time I awoke to see glowing purple jellyfish floating in my room by the ceeling for a good minute before they faded away. I sleays fekt I was seeing into a different demetion tho I have no idea why I think this. One that is close to ours just invisible to us most of the time but it’s there. Other times in my dreams I have fun controlling them but sometimes I get this strange feeling that something sees me also that because I know I’m there it knows I’m there also. And sometimes it comes for me and that is not fun it’s really freaky. It feels very evil and I can also wake myself up when I want to but sometimes when I feel this and it’s here I wake myself up but I still see my dream awake and I’m pulled right back into sleep and I’m still dreaming and that will happen over and over until I finally wake myself. I have had many dreams where I time travel to distant places or realms. One I went to the begenning of mankind and was told in my dream I was called to bear witness of an event and saw the death of all trees souls. Before mankink waled this earth in my dream at least trees had souls like people they were all interlinking also and felt pain and love and happiness and sadness. They were a peaceful race and would not fight but would not live in agony of man killing them one by one each branch like a arm being sawed off. So they departed there body’s but wanted someone to see what trees really we’re now the dead carces of a once magical being. But I’m not sure if those dreams I have are just my imagination or something more. It’s hard to say really. But I don’t know what to think about seeing things when I first wake up tho I don’t know how that could be my imagination?
