Dream Dictionary Dark figure, Dark Man

If you have a dream in which you see a dark figure, or a dark man, these are some of the most potent symbols because of the fact that they are so closely related to humanity but at the same time are not human. This can be perplexing and frightening to the mind but fear not.

If you have a dream about a dark figure this may at first appear sinister and it may very well be sinister but let’s not imagine the worst case scenario first. If you have a dream about a dark figure, try to think if you have met anyone new relatively recently. If you have and then you have this dream of a dark figure then it could be that you are seeing this because you want to get to know this new person but you are not sure how. This new person is probably fairly interesting and you want to know who they are, but they keep their true selves hidden because they are so enigmatic. You can only get to know them by talking to them more and though it may seem intimidating, this dream suggests that you would really like to get to know him so you might as well go for it. Meet the dark figure; talk with him, and then maybe things won’t be so scary, because a dream of a random dark figure means ominous things loom.

If you have a dream of a dark man your first thought might be to panic, after all this can be a pretty scary symbol. Nobody wants to see a dark man because they are scared of what he might represent, evil, death, destruction? This is actually a flaw in the way that humans think; we always assume that something new is going to be threatening if it has to do with darkness at all when this is not really the case. If you have a dream in which you see a dark man it is probably because you have met someone new in the waking world, or you are right about to. When you do meet this man again you want to get to know him better. The darkness in the dream is just a sign that you don’t know him all that well and that you might want to get to know him a little bit better. If this is the case, just put a little more effort in when trying to establish a conversation with him and he will probably open up to you.

Last night i had this dream where there wasnt really any plot or anything, just random stuff like most of the very dew dreams i remember for more than a day, but there was one continuos thing. An 8 or 10 foot figure either behind or infront of us, walking. It never really did anything and i dont know why it was there, it wasnt even really a nightmare though.

I've had several dreams of these entities. In fact, I've been having them for so long, I don't even remember when the first one was.
They are fairly similar; different settings though. They usually last for about 2-3 weeks.
A couple of dreams in particular stand out though...
1. I was with a group of people, old aunts, uncles and grandparents who had passed away and the 'dark beings' appeared. The group formed a circle, holding hands and grabbed mine, holding me tightly. The dark figures tried to pull me away, digging their figures into my forearms. I'm not overly religious, but I started to pray in my dream. Eventually, the dark figures gave up and left (it seemed like an age before they did).
This is going to sound made up and I don't blame anyone for thinking so, so take it how you want; when I woke, I had marks on my arms from where they tried to grab me.
2. This next one is the last dream I had of them. It was very different from all of the others and I haven't had one of those dreams for about a year now...
The figures appeared again, this time there were so many of them! After trying to 'take' me, they suddenly stopped and stepped back. Then I heard laughter - just one of them was laughing - and the group parted to let what seemed like their leader walk through.
It just kept laughing and said it was going to come for me (as if it was saying the others failed, now it is 'his' turn).

I'm not sure what to make of it.

I had a nightmare where I was on the computer playing video games. I looked to the side and saw a dark figure in my room. I ran straight to my door. But the man was right next to the door. I looked at him for one second and then I woke up shaking

I was asleep then I awoke to a Man with no face wearing a Fedora Hat and a Long Trench coat. He put out his hand to touch me. I was 9-months pregnant at the time. I screamed and screamed. I thought he was going to take me. I thought he was evil in some way. I was shaking. My husband woke up and wanted to know what was wrong with me. I told him. Because it was so real, it didn't seem like a dream...but I guess it was. That was many years ago, but I have never forgotten the dream or how I thought he was there to take my baby.

I have been having these dreams recently so, theirs this very tall man about 8ft maybe even 9ft. He's very tall and he's just all black head to toe. But, he has a large smile with sharp teeth it is very unnatural. So this dream went like this, I was in a large space it looked like it would never end. I was just sitting on the ground, staring in the distance blankly. It was cold and wet in the dream to, while I was sitting I kept hearing noises at first I couldn't make the whispers out so I ignored it. Then, the whispers got closer and closer. I stood up looking for who or what was making those noises. I walked around that pitch black room looking. I walked and walked hearing each step I took with whispers still creeping up on me. I wasn't scared but , I was just confused and cold. "Tap"'"Tap" "Tap" the steps sounded. "Kyousulf" the whispers said. I just kept walking towards the whispers the closer and closer I got the colder and wetter it was. Finally, the whispers sounded like actual words "Kill yourself, die, die" the whispers said. My face went blank as it once was before. The whispers started giggling in a deep voice. I closed my eyes hoping it would all go away the whispers kept laughing and giggling "Die! DIE!" they yelled. I finally got the courage to open my eyes, and someone no something was in front of me. I slowly looked up to see its face. Its face, its face was so unhuman. It's smile on its face it looked like a crescent, the thing also had a top hat with a red ribbon, it was wearing a suit with a red tie to match the red ribbon. It had hands with sharp nails that could pierce the skin. It had no eyes but it felt like it was staring directly at me. It said something " Do you wanna kill you're self"? I said "No" and started to tear up. "Then I'll do it" the black figured replied. My eyes open wide and turned white I couldn't see anything. Just white, then a flash came out of nowhere. Then I saw something it was me, I was dead a rope tied around my kneck and I was hanging from a black tree. Another flash, I had a knife go through my chest I fell to to the ground coughing up blood. Another flash, a gun to my head "BANG" everything went slow I fell to the ground. A flash a saw rushing towards me slicing my head. A flash, a pair of scissors cutting my eye. A flash a knife slitting my wrist and the blood slowly bled out. Another flash, my head was in a gulliotine my head fell into the basket. Another flash, everything went pitch black again. Everything e I died I saw the black figure in the background. Smiling, another flash everything was back to normal I was at my house with my parents eating dinnner but, something was different the black figure he was behind me my family didn't see him but I did. Everywhere I went he went with me, my friends house, school, to the park, a restaurant, my room, my backyard, anywhere i went he was always their. He always whispered "Kill you're self".
Dream 2: Was similar he kept following me and whispering "Kill you're self" I've been having these dreams for the past 2 weeks. Idk what the hell id going on. Could it be that I'm going through a mild depression idk and I'm kinda scared. Sometimes I even wake up with tears on my face and I'm out of breath.

I'm 13 btw and sorry for my grammar mistakes.
Have a nice day and I hope the universe treats you right.

I was sleeping next to my soon-to-be ex gf at the time in our room at her mother's house with the door closed. There is this one single 'street light' right outside the window so u have little bit of light casting in. (This happened on Navajo reservation land and the house was by itself in it's own little area) I was sleeping on my back and I'm quite sure that I wasn't actually dreaming at first, but all of a sudden it felt like someone (a man) jumped on top of me with his knees on my elbows and holding my wrists down at the same time and I couldn't breathe. As I lay there scared and struggling to get up, I couldn't. It was pure black and a deep dark pitch shadow of a man and I could feel it on top of me holding me down. He wasn't talking or anything like that, but he seemed to be saying: "I got you!" To scare me... and I WAS scared! He disappeared in a matter of seconds and I finally 'woke up' as if I was having a seizure. My gf woke up at the same time and just laughed like it was funny. (Bitch) Mind you, the family was traditional and in the many weeks before took part in 'healing' ceremonies with a certain uncle relative of theirs who performed them. I was there for support as it is a part of my heritage and traditional native background, so I didn't think much of it. Anyway, he lived just over the hill and knew me and his neice weren't doing too good relationship-wise, so I believe it was him that came in disturbing my precious slumber. Wtchcraft is truly prominent and very real in this world and us natives believe this all too well. Anyway... you don't mess with witches unless u know what ur up against and have benevolent support of equal power to fight fire with fire. I left soon after and never went back... eventually moving off of the rez. I always knew it was him, but if u expose a witch or end up killing one somehow... then u got a whole world of shit on a different plane with spiritual demonic entities. Normally we use our ceremonies for good... but, this guy was evil and the family overall: ignorant, self-righteous and plain stupid. Needless to say: I don't participate anymore. Maybe one of these I'll go back and...

I had a dream where I saw my deceased father in a raft of sorts in what looked like to be a man made river with concrete and brick walls. We was coming out of a tunnel and a black figure was sitting behind him with his feet propped up like he was relaxing. The figure then jumped up as if it was startled that I was there and it faced me. Completely black. No shadow. Just a black figure. I opened my eyes immediately. I have only bad feelings about this dream.

Hi was wondering if anyone could help at all I woke up last night and as usual my curtains were open so could see my room with the night sky and at the end of my bed was a really tall dark figure staring down at the floor. I checked the time it as 2.07 looked back it was still there, led there for a couple of minutes and had a horrible feeling rushing over me after a couple of minutes it still being there I got up turned the light on and it had gone.
Could anyone please tell me what this was? I have just read up on the shadow man and the hat man. I can tell you the figure at the end of my bed did not have a hat. Does this help matters?

I just had this dream today...
I was in my house and it was daytime... and I had a small baby in my hands and suddenly I saw many skinny dark hooded figures in my dream trying to break into the house and try to take this bay from me... I usually had this dream before but it was always one hooded dark figure that gave me the creeps... the strange thing now is that there are many of them and they were trying to break through any possible space open.. through a window and open door.... but luckily in me dream nothing was open and the house was closed from four sides.....the last thing that I remember.. ell the last scene is when I reached for the phone and I went in hiding in the attic and called my dad and 999.
Last thing to say... I had a feeling that I knew who these figures were but could not work who they were...

well I had two encounters with a shadow person, which I decided to call Kenny for one reason that's not really important.

First dream: I will tell only the part where i encounter
Kenny
. so I walked around my appartment and I noticed unusuall amount of light coming through one of the plastic transparent doors that we have. it was really unusuall so I walked in. the room is small, with a window at the end of the room. and there he is. a shadow person (aka Kenny) standing at the window that is wide open, making alot of light to come to the room (the shadow wasn't transparent, it was physical). I was really terrefied, I had no idea what to do. and suddenly Kenny jumped out of the window, leaving me scared for a week, of dodging the window.

Second dream: this dream started suddenly by me running into the kitchen. I ran to a kitchen table, to a knife stand. I quickly grab the biggest knife in the stand. I was really scared. suddenly I look the way I ran from and I see Kenny running towards me, really fast. I quickly stab him to the chest with the knife, right to the heart. the dream ends here. after I woke up I felt proud?

the name Kenny is because in every dream the shadow man, died. you probably get the reference.
