When I was 17, I saw a 7 foot Man In Black with a black hat standing in the corner of my bedroom at 3 am on a school night. Not understanding the paranormal like I do now, I was extremely fearful and buried my head under the covers hoping he would leave.
He was still there when I lifted my head back out from under. I put my head back under and said to myself that he needed to leave and if there was a higher power, please help it to be gone. Then I came out from under the covers a second time, and he was gone.
I experienced him one other time when I was 17. I think I was trying to determine what he was doing in the corner of my room, waiting and not saying anything. I had seen other figures that were not physical in the past, but they never made me uneasy as much as this one did.
I was going through a shaky adolescence, living without my parents (who were divorced) and my sister, and residing with my grandparents. I wasn’t doing well in high school and my grandfather was not a pleasant man to be around. Somehow I believe that this shadow person was a result of the combination of my depression, teenage angst and uncontrolled psychic abilities. Not saying I manifested him myself, but I gave off some kind of energy that attracted him to me.
That crazy ricocheting, boomeranging, psychokinetic energy. It’s a magnet for certain spirits and they drink in the frenzied vibrations.
This is one of those experiences that is very clear in your head that you never forget. I almost felt he was there to “snatch my soul”, which I now know he couldn’t have done.
After being on countless paranormal and unexplained phenomena blog/web sites, Hat Man is a prevalent being that you spot in many recounted stories from people.
I know if I saw “Hat Man” spirit now, I wouldn’t have any fear of him and would try to find out if he was earthbound or some kind of spiritual phenomena that just forever walks on the earth that doesn’t belong anywhere.
Here are some links to stories that cover the Hat Man phenomena:
I’m interested in hearing about anyone else having a Hat Man encounter. Please send us your story!
Just saw this video a little while ago:
“Enquête sur le monde invisible” (original French title), a 2002 documentary by French director Jean-Michel Roux
It was so fascinating and entertaining. The video is about exactly what the title says it’s about – an investigation into the invisible world in Iceland. The people in Iceland are much more open-minded than we are in Canada or the US concerning what cannot be seen by the naked eye, but yet exists in some dimension. A huge part of their population believe in elves, fairies, ghosts and cryptozoological beasts. If they believe a rock is being used or inhabited by fairies, the roadway must go around it rather than moving it or disturbing it in any way.
In the middle of the video, this man named Ananda appeared. He is a Fractal Cosmology Researcher. He made an excellent observation on weird stuff we see and how little of our brain that we use. His analogy with radio stations and frequencies was so astute and really resonated with me.
Quote from the above video by Ananda – a Fractal Cosmology Researcher:
Strange phenomena can be explained when we understand that our reality is like one radio station of a plurality of radio stations or frequencies. Our brain registers less than 0.5 degrees or percent of all emanations that are actually out there. So our life is tuned to one radio station.
However sometimes, there is an interference between other radio stations and our radio station, creating strange and anomalous phenomena.
This is part of that head-spinning world of quantum physics, black holes and other strange scientific stuff I am still trying to get a grip on. I just know, somewhere down the road, quantum physics and radio frequencies are going to show people out there that the “invisibles” like ghosts, elves, fairies, crypto beasts and other phenomena actually do exist.
Maybe YOU can’t see them, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t in OUR cosmos. What an amazing world we live in.
