    I've been looking everywhere online for anyone who knows anything about this or has experienced it, but I haven't found anything.

    As a little kid, probably around five or six years old, I had several experiences with the same type of entity. I used to go to bed at my grandpa's old home because my Mom would occasionally drop me off on weekends. Around four times (possibly more), I'd very clearly see a small monkey of some sort swinging around the room as if it had branches to hold on to. I don't remember the appearance too well besides it being shadow-like with no facial features. It would never notice my presence, but every time I saw it I would sense that something was wrong in the room to the point where I'd have to sleep in the living room so I was on the opposite side of the house. I thought it could've been something hypnagogic, but I remember it was always happening while I was fully alert. If anyone has any information or references to anything I could look into, I'd highly appreciated it! I had a few different paranormal experiences as a small child, but only this one seems to have little to no online presence.

    Welcome to the forum Terra.I used to have black panther shadow figures walk around my room as a kid of about 3 or 4.That was the start of a lifetime of paranormal experiences.The monkey figure sounds interesting,there maybe someone on here with more info for you on this.

    Welcome to the PNF Terra. There is very likely several members, staff, and guests here who can help you with this experience.

    My experiences are mostly psychic including a small boatload of premonitions which occurred during the hypnopompic state. Since I’ve found that I am especially intuitive or receptive during the first 15 minutes after I awake (inclusive of the actual waking process too), it could be that you were experiencing something psychic as you transition into a sleep state. On one occasion, while I was asleep, I received several paragraphs of a novel that a friend was concurrently reading (he was awake) at his home about three miles away. Knowing for me that this is possible, I might offer that you could have been receiving someone else’s thought - maybe someone who was thinking about or seeing a monkey.

    Another idea which someone else here might offer is a time slip - where you might have been seeing something from the past that used to occupy the same space where the house sat. My experiences with premonitions lead me to expect that content from the past can probably be viewed too.

    Wands you stated these ideas perfectly. Exactly my thoughts. (You were reading my mind in the future lol).

    One other possibility is it might be your animal guide. Some people believe we have animal spirits that assist us in life.

    My first thought was a time slip.

    All of that sounds really interesting. I honestly don't have too much knowledge on most paranormal things outside of pretty basic stuff to be completely honest, so thanks for the ideas! I think I've heard the idea of a time slip before, but I never remembered to look into it.

    This sounds really interesting, I'll have to look it up sometime! There's definitely a lot of things it could be, and I appreciate all the info :smile: It's hard to look into things when I don't know anything besides keywords to search, especially when the experience is such a strong memory despite the fact that I don't usually remember much at all.

    Don’t apologize Terra. This forum is here to help. Few people come here with a cohesive set of knowledge, rules, etc. We are all learning together but we each contribute with our own unique set of skills and experiences. If you would like further help with ideas about those childhood events, just continue to post here. Others will contribute throughout the week. By the way, we have some international members too so posts could be added here at anytime of the day.

    Wow,.. First of all Hi.
    I'm tearing up badly. When i got to the word (Monkey), I got cold chills all over. I also had visions of that type growing up, but outside my bedroom window. What seemed to me, to be a Monkey/Monkeys tapping on the window for me to let them in. I lived on the second floor at this time. i was 5 or 6 of age.
