Dark figures that hide

7 Answers
Hello, recently I've been woken up in the middle of the night by something. When I look in the direction of what wakes me up I'm seeing a dark figure. After looking at it for a while I realize it is a bookcase in our bedroom and that the outline of what looked like a large demon/human thing is actually the outline of what is on the bookcase. So I assume that it is nothing. However, something keeps waking me up and I'm wondering if it's actually something paranormal that is able to then hide in the outline of the bookcase. Does that make sense?

Hi Talent59 sorry it has taken so long for you to receive an answer. The experience you describe is interesting in that you freely give reason for what you see and yet you still find yourself curious. I could be wrong as we are dealing with the sleeping mind here but I will answer as best I can and hope it helps you.

The mind works much like a trap. Once it fixates on an idea it does not want to let go. Your first thought when you were awakened and saw a dark shape was that it was someone. You soon realized that it was not but by then you had given your mind something interesting to work with. The mind being such a glutton for punishment and a great lover of humor decides to hang onto this idea and play with it while you lay innocently sleeping.

Next thing you know you are being awakened with that very same initial feeling you had and begin to think logically enough that there is more to it than there is. In short your mind is now playing with a concept that it finds stimulating even if you don't agree. It's much like getting a song stuck in your head when you're wide awake. You just can't get rid of it, that is until you find something else to entertain your brain.

I would imagine by now you have resolved this problem but hope this helps anyway.

Since you were initially startled your mind has imprinted this and every night at the same time you wake up startled all over again. Whether it is ingrained in your own mind or if there is something attached to that furniture, you should sage your house. Buy a sage smudge stick and open all doors and windows. Light the stick and blow it out so it smokes. Walk around all of your rooms and pay special attention to corners and along ceilings. As you walk say something like "I cleanse this room of impurities and negativity and anything that does not support the people that live here. Watch the smoke drift out of the windows and doors. It is pulling the negativity with it. After you have gone over the whole home and especially by the bookcase, put the remaining sage out in a cup of water and flush it down the toilet. You can put your mind at ease that you will not see the shadow again.

I have had a similar experience back when I was a child. My brothers and I shared a room. My older brother and I shared bunk beds while my younger brother slept in his own bed on the other side of the room. Of course he needed a night light which was plugged in at the foot of his bed.
When I woke up at around 1:30 or so in the morning, I noticed the perfect shadow of a head on the underside of my brothers bed. Looking around I noticed that there was absolutely nothing that could possibly cast that shape of shadow. Could this have been a ghost or demon? That is a question that remains to be answered. And yes that does make sense to me

Have you ever heard of shadow people? Most often a shadow person can appear as a black human like shape and can move quickly but with a slight jerky movement, maybe this is what was waking you up? Not a lot of information is known about what they are or where they come from, but they do seem to have the ability to blend in with their surroundings and can appear out of nowhere. The best thing to do in this situation is that if you are not sure you or someone you know can perform a house blessing to clear your home of all negative energy. Hope this helps!

You might want to investigate the origin of the bookshelf. Spirits , including what is known as shadow people will often attach themselves to objects. Sometimes they do this because of a personal attachment to the object other times it may be to get closer to the person the object belongs to. I definately recommend blessing the house with prayer and sage.

Yes the bookshelf might have a demon attached to it you should put up cameras to record whats waking you up or call a paranormal team.
