Shadow Persons, What Are They And Why Do They Seem To Be More Of Them

We may never know for sure exactly what shadow people are. And I really don't think there are more of them. I just think more of them are being reported. I think they are the ghosts or spirits of people who were once living breathing human beings. Why they are different than other ghosts I don't know but I am continuing research trying to find out more information about shadow people.

Are Slender Man And Shadow People The Same Type Of Entity Or Creature?

Slender Man is depicted as a tall thin man with a featureless face wearing a dark suit. Stories about Slender Man tell of him stalking, traumatizing, or abducting people especially children.

A lot of people including myself think that Slender Man and Shadow People are one and the same. I think people are seeing shadow people and calling them Slender Man. I know that Shadow People exist because I've seen them for over fifty years. They are very real and they are right here with us.

Have you not ever been setting there and you catch something moving over there across the room out of the corner of your eye. If so then you have most likely seen a shadow person. However there are some people who see Shadow People straight on standing there in the room with them. Some people see Shadow People wearing coats, hats and describe the Shadow Person as having Fiery Red Eyes.

A lot of people think that Shadow People are demons but I don't. I think Shadow People are the ghosts or spirits of people just like you and me that once lived here on earth as living breathing human beings. And I know for a fact that there are Shadow People all around us.

Shadow People, What Are They

Some people will argue that shadow people are demons or some form of dark spirit. Some people who have seen shadow people with fiery red eyes try to claim that this proves that the creature they are seeing is a demon or some other form of dark spirit. Let me tell you that I have seen shadow people with red fiery eyes and while it startled me nothing evil happened. I was not attacked in any way. If it was a demon or evil dark spirit would it not attack. I think it would.

One of the most popular claims about shadow people is that they are aliens from another world here on earth to observe us and see what we are doing. If they are aliens why are they mostly observing us around places where people have died or where there are huge numbers of human remains like in graveyards. No I'm sorry but I don't think they are aliens.

The next most popular theory is that they are time travelers but again if they are time travelers why are they hanging around all the dead people. Why would they do this? I don't think they would.

I really believe that shadow people are ghosts or spirits of deceased people who once lived right here on earth just like you and me do now.

My Shadow Person Story

I have a friend who has horses in a pasture where there once stood a large farmhouse for well over 150 years. The house which was now being used to store hay was struck by lighting and it burned down a few years ago.

About 100 yards from the front of the house and off to the left of the house is an old family graveyard where at least 75 family members and a dozen or more slaves were buried over the many years that people lived in the big old farm house.

I remember the old termite eaten farm house very well. It was very old and in pretty bad shape but you could still see that it had at one time been a very pretty house. It was a large house that at one time had eight bedrooms on the second floor and it still had iron rings up in the attic where slaves had been chained at one point in history. The house had a rich history and a man and his three older sons went off to war in the American Civil War from the house. The three sons were killed in the war while the father lost his right arm and his right eye and returned home after the war a very bitter man. It is said he would ride his big grey horse around the farm thinking about what had once been. It is said he blamed his self for the death of his three sons and one evening during a violent thunderstorm he took his wife's life as she walked up the stairs and then he shot himself in the head and killed his self.

Not long afterwards people still claimed to see the old man with his long grey hair and beard riding his old grey horse around the farm. People would tell of being ordered off the farm by the old man and he is still seen to this day.

A few weeks ago I happened to go up to the old farm to feed the horses of my friend. I got there after sunset and after parking I started walking towards the shed where the grain for the horses is stored. Several horses were feeding on grass about 75 yards away from me in front of where the old farm house once stood. Something moving off to the right of the horses caught my eye and I saw a shadow person with the shape of a man walk from near the grave yard and then I watched amazed as the shadow figure walked towards the horses and I could tell the horses saw it because of how they acted and the horses walked off away from the shadow figure walking towards them.

The shadow figure walked right up to where the steps going up to the porch of the old farm house had once stood. I stood there and watched in amazement as the shadow figure walked up the steps that were no longer there and then it walked across up where the porch had once been and then I heard the old rusty screen door that had been there open and slam shut and the shadow figure vanished.

It was truly one of the most amazing things I ever saw. The shadow figure I saw that day had the shape and look of a man except it was like a solid shadow. It amazed me that the shadow man looked so solid and it really did amaze me that I heard the old screen door slam shut. I remembered exactly how that old screen door had sounded when it would blow open and shut in the wind. Only the day that the shadow man walked in the screen door it was not there. It had burned up when the old farm house burned up. It amazed me that I saw the shadow man but it also amazed me that I was hearing a screen door slam shut that was no longer there. Can you say wow!

I know for a fact that the shadow figure came from the direction of the old family graveyard. I watched it walk along for a good hundred yards or so. It went into the old farm house that was no longer there and I heard a screen door slam that was no longer there. And I know that the horses saw the same thing I saw. They were bothered by the shadow figure. I know because they moved out of its path. It was truly one of the most amazing things that I have ever seen.

Are Shadow People Ghosts Or Spirits?

Yes I think shadow people are ghosts or spirits of people who were once live human beings who used to live here on earth just like you and me. I believe this to be true simply because of the large numbers of shadow people who are seen around graveyards, hospitals, and fatal accident sites. This leads me to believe that shadow people are some type of ghost or spirit that is trapped here on earth and it is quite possibly trying to communicate with us. I do believe them to be intelligent beings and I have seen them try to signal to or talk to humans.

What Are Shadow People? Why Do They Exist? Where Do They Come From?

Shadow people have been around for hundreds, if not thousands of years and almost everyone has seen them. You see movement over there out of the corner of your eye and most people simply dismiss it as a trick of light or etc.

But now it seems that more and more people are seeing shadow people. Why? What is changing that is causing so many more people to see and report shadow people. Are they people from another dimension popping into our world for a few seconds and then they vanish.

Why do you see more shadow people around graveyards, hospitals, and etc. Would this not make you think that it has to have something to do with dead people. I myself think that shadow people are some form of ghosts or spirits. No I don't think they are demons or evil spirits. I think they are people who once lived here on earth.

Shadow People Are Not A Trick Of Light

More people are seeing shadow people than ever before. What are they is the question that comes to everyone's mind. Some people claim they are time travelers or demons but I really don't think so. I've seen many, probably thousands of shadow people and I think they are a form of ghost or spirit.

People see shadow people in all forms, sizes, and shapes. Some people including me have seen them wearing coats and hats and some have even been reported with fiery red eyes. I've seen them wearing hats and I've seen them with bright fiery red eyes. But I still believe they were at one point in time living breathing human beings just like me and you.

I have seen a few shadow people. Three times in broad daylight. Twice in the house in the evening as it was walking down the hall. Once at night and the pets saw it too and reacted to it. The first time I saw it was about lunchtime. I was drinking a cup of coffee. I looked out into the driveway and saw a shadow person walking from one side to the other. When it reached the other side of the driveway it faded away like turning off a dimmer switch. We have seen glowing orbs and my son was hit in the chest by one. He said it felt like being frozen and shocked at the same time. I am not sure if the orb activity and the shadow people are related or not. Nothing, not even trees have been on this property until 20 years ago when our friends bought it. Two years ago we started buying it from them.

Great. I'm not alone. Thanks for bringing the commenters together to share their insights. I have seen shadow people, and others have shared what they have seen in our office. I was editing alone in a large production area. Behind was a large open area and some desks. In the reflection of my computer screen I caught movement and noticed a reflection of someone from the waist down (the top of the monitor cut off the top) walking behind me. Of course, there was no one there. My secretary at the time, saw a shadow walk across a doorway. And though this may not count as a shadow person encounter, my lead coordinator was assembling some equipment and I was sitting cross the table from him in the large space that I previously mentioned, and we both heard a loud, sad, tired sigh coming from what seemed to be above the center of the table. Thanks for the interesting article.

Very interesting read crazyhorsesghost. This is the type of subject that really attracts my attention. I don't think I have ever seen shadow people other than in photos or videos but I do believe they exist and are probably the spirits of the dead. Thank you for this. I enjoyed your personal shadow person story, in it I noticed however that at the end of the third paragraph you wrote "..he shot himself in the head and killed his self". You may be better saying "he killed himself with a gun shot to the head" or something similar. Very eerie videos too, toed up.

Kittythedreamer I've seen them while wide awake though I have had other people tell me of seeing them during sleep paralysis. I saw one or two this evening while working in the fields planting watermelons. I live on some property where there is a really high level of paranormal activity.

Aviannovice I've always tried to talk to some dead people I've seen but I never have. I have thought I heard messages from some in my mind. I have had ghosts stand and wave and gesture to me with their hands. So they are trying to communicate. In all my experiences I've never had anyone tell me a ghost spoke to them. Now I and other people on my team have recorded the voices of the dead many times. We have even recorded answers to questions we asked. But not one ghost has ever sat down and had a conversation with me. Now that would be something else indeed.

This is extremely interesting. What I wouldn't give to be able to talk to a former living person.

I've seen them, but my sightings usually went hand-in-hand with bouts of sleep paralysis. Do you have any experience with that? I've written a few hubs on my thoughts and experiences with it. Thanks for an awesome hub! :)

There is a lady in the house where I lived and she died about 20 years ago here in the house. I see her quite often and I also hear her old pedal sewing machine running though there is no sewing machine here in the house.

This is fascinating. I have had a young woman walking around my house since I bought it. My mother saw her one evening when she got up to use the bathroom and it scared her so bad that she left for her home the next day. I have not had any problems with her, she just seems to walk about the house. My husband and all three of our girls have seen her. I've thought about why she is there, I haven't found anything about the land that would make me think she is connected to it. I enjoyed your hub greatly.

Fascinating stuff. I have never seen or had an encounter with a shadow person, but if there are so many reports of sightings there must be something in it. I hope people do add their stories in the comments

Very interesting. I wouldn't say I don't believe in them, I'm just agnostic about what they might be. Very compelling evidence here. Thanks for sharing your story, that's pretty creepy!
