I was just at the Grove last night. I was with two other friends. We crossed the creek and followed the path into the woods (where supposedly the darker events are supposed to take place). This experience happened right by an area that seemed to have a well, or at least a hole in the ground with rocks that looked like a well. I was first in line in my group, and I had the flashlight. As I turned the corner by this well, I see a tall, black shadow figure walking confidently towards us. It took human-like strides and swung its arms by its side as it walked. I flipped out and turned around towards my friends. My friends, however, shined their flashlight down the path and saw the same figure I saw go into the trees and then cross the path. The weird thing was, right when I see this figure, my phone just turned off from 60% battery (I was using it for the camera) and went to some reboot screen I had never seen before. I imagine it took some of the energy from my phone to manifest. I saw the entity first, and my friends described the exact entity I saw without me telling them what I saw. I wanted to continue on, but my friends said to turn back. Did anyone else see this entity or know what it is? It was very frightening at the time, but I only jumped back because seeing a dark shadow apparition walking towards you is surprising to anyone.
We were there because we were trying to determine what types of spirits were at the Grove. A friend of mine is a medium (he was in my group) and he said there were many spirits there, however they were almost being held hostage there by demons, or evil, nonhuman spirits summoned from the rituals, grave desecration, and overall bad energy there . He said it's just a bad place, a purgatory for spirits. The spirits that he sees over there have no faces and are usually not inside the cemetery gates, but all around the area. The medium got a strange vibe from this spirit. He was worried because not only could he see it, me and my other friend saw it as well, which means that it wanted to be seen and had the ability and strength to show itself, while most other spirits are timid and leave once they realize the medium could see them.
We saw this figure after asking the question what type of spirits are in the grove, human or nonhuman. We may have been slightly taunting them. One of my friends had that device that allows spirits to speak through and displays a word on the screen. First it said, "branch" right when there was a huge branch blocking our path. Then it said "powerful". And I said, "obviously not, as we haven't seen anything yet". Then the screen said "don't", which I assumed to mean "don't test me". It was then that we rounded the corner and saw the shadow. Has anyone seen this in the forest or anywhere at Bachelors Grove? If not, any guesses on what it may be?
