Shadow People And What They Are

Shadow People , Have You Ever Saw One?

People can laugh and say there are no such things as ghosts and shadow people but I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that there are both Shadow People and Ghosts. I believe that there are people that can easily see shadow people , ghosts , and other paranormal activity and people that can not.

A lot of people catch movement out of the corner of their eye and just assume that the light is playing tricks on them. However some people see shadow people as black human shapes and know that they are seeing something. What they are seeing is the question. I know I have gone into some houses and buildings and saw shadow people. I have also saw shadow people outdoors. I know of at least one location with in a mile of my home where I see shadow people every time I go there. Some people who go to that location see shadow people while other people see nothing.

I have often wondered why some people see shadow people while other people will see nothing. I really wonder what the reason for this is.

Most of the Shadow People I have seen move very quickly and while I have seen them out of the corner of my eye I have also seen them straight on moving about and then swiftly moving off out of sight.

There is even one theory that shadow people are guardian spirits or even guardian angels. Of course many people have many theories about shadow people. What do you think shadow people are? Post your comments in the comment section below.

Some Things You May Not Know About Shadow People

1. Animals can and do see shadow people. I once had a dog that would just start to raise hell just inside the back door. At first I thought the dog was wanting to go outside until one day I noticed the dog always barked into one corner where there no exit to the outside. One day I myself caught a glimpse of a shadow person in that corner. Almost at once the dog started barking wildly again. Over the next several months I caught the shadow person teasing the dog. I finally moved away and the dog was given to a friend.

I currently have a cat that sees shadow people. I have caught him running through the house and playing with one. I have caught the shadow persons reflection in a mirror so I know its there. And the cat really seems to enjoy playing with the shadow person.

2. I and others have heard the footsteps of shadow people. Yes you can quite often hear their footsteps as they move around. If they make noises like footsteps then they must have some what of a physical presence. I have even heard a shadow person laugh. And I truly believe at least some of them have a personality. I know the one playing with my cat enjoys it because it and the cat sometimes will play for an hour or more. I was just watching this again and its really something else to see. Sometimes I see the shadow person when its playing with the cat and sometimes I don't but I know its there because of the actions of the cat.

3. Some shadow people are more menacing than others. I have seen a large shadow person with fiery red eyes in the basement of the old closed down nursing home that appears to be menacing every time I see it. I have even heard it growl at me and when it did the hair on my arms stood up. This was the first red eyed shadow person I ever seen. Though I have seen many more since then. If you could see the one I saw in the basement of the old closed down nursing home I guarantee you it would scare you.


What kinds of interaction have you had with a shadow person. Please post about it in the comment section below.

New Shadow Person Seen February 22, 2012

Just this week I had a very interesting sighting. I was walking along the edge of a field where a very large old house stood until just about a year ago. The house was built in the 1840s and had fallen into very bad repair and about a year ago it burned down during a huge thunderstorm. There were several huge oak trees right up against it and they burned to.

A friend of mine has fenced the property and has several horses in the pasture there now. There is an old family graveyard there about a hundred yards from where the house once stood. No one has been buried there since 1897. There are 15 graves you can see but I have been told there are about 40 or more graves there. With permission of the property owner I have been going out there shooting video and doing paranormal investigations for about two years now. Other people have claimed to see a confederate officer with one arm on the property over the years but I've never seen him. He is supposedly seen riding a horse which is also supposed to be a ghost. And people have claimed he has ordered people off the property.

Just the other day I was on the property waiting for the edge of dark when I saw one of the most distinct shadow people that I have ever seen. Three horses were standing between me and where the old house once stood when I caught movement down near the cemetery. I saw a dark black human shape walking away from the cemetery towards the location where the house once stood. I carefully raised my camera and shot three quick photos only to find out later that no shadow person showed up on the camera. The shadow person appeared to be about six foot tall and I could tell it was wearing clothes but no hat. It walked to about where the front door of the old house would have been and vanished. Talk about the hair standing up on the back of your neck. I was shaking and my adrenaline was pumping. I went and walked the path it walked and even went to the tombstone nearest to where I first saw it but the tombstone was so weathered you could no longer see any of what was once written on it clear enough to read it. But I know from research that it was one of the earliest graves from before the Civil War. It was one of the most distinct shadow persons that I have ever seen. I will be going back and try to see it again. I think the light may have been to low for the camera and I didn't have the flash on. Next time I will be prepared.

It was one of the most exciting sightings I have had in a long time and it makes searching for paranormal activity and ghosts really worth it. I know first hand that shadow people are real. At one point when it was walking along it was at one point about 15 foot from one of the horses in the pasture and when it passed in front of the horse the horse raised its head and looked right at it. I'm sure that horse was as spooked as I was. When it walked in front of the horse the horse raised its head like I said and then it walked over to where three of the other horses was about 75 yards away. I'm sure the horses have seen it before but it clearly spooked the horse that was nearest to it. Hell I know it spooked me. I will keep this updated. And I will be going back to try to see it again.

Let me tell you here that there are two Confederate Soldier burials in the old graveyard but no Confederate Officer was ever buried there. At least there is no record of one ever being buried there. The claim has been made for years by many different people that the Confederate Officer with one arm riding a grey horse with black spots is seen on the property but I have never been able to find out who he could have been. It is said that the sleeve of his coat with no arm in it is pinned up. Everything sounds right but who he is or why he's seen there I have never been able to find out.

This is the location outdoors where I often see Shadow People. Notice all the Orbs in the photo.

What Are Shadow People?

Above is a photo of one location where I see Shadow People all the time. Notice all the Orbs in the air. Many people died at this location which is just outside a old closed down nursing home. The shadow people I have seen at this location appear to come from the direction of the old closed down nursing home and disappear near the edge of the woods. There are several old trailers behind the old closed down nursing home and I have seen the shadow people appearing to dance around these old trailers. No one lives at this location.

What exactly are shadow people and why they are there is a big question that a lot of people over the years have tried to figure out. Did you know that shadow people are seen all over the world but it does appear that more are seen in the United States than any other country. It appears that in the United States that more shadow people are seen in the state of North Carolina than any other state. The old closed down nursing home I am talking about in this article is in North Carolina in the western part of the state.

Why do you think more shadow people are seen in North Carolina than any other state. Do you know that the Cherokee Indians have seen shadow people in western North Carolina dating back over a thousand years. The Cherokee Indians believed that the shadow people came for the spirits of the deceased. They believed that shadow people were guardian spirits that guided newly deceased souls to the other side.

So the next time your setting there on the couch and catch a movement out of the corner of your eye look real quick and you just might catch the glimpse of a shadow person hurrying away out of your site. Look down towards the ground because in some locations the shadow person can be quite short. Shadow people really come in all shapes and sizes. Even hooded. I have also saw several with bright red fiery eyes. And shadow people appear to be a spreading phenomenon with more and more people reporting seeing them. More shadow people are seen in the United States with more seen in North Carolina than any other state. Why? Well we don't know why but with that many people seeing something there has to be something really there. What are shadow people is a question we really can't answer at this time.

Have you ever seen a shadow person? Why not post a comment about it down below now.

In the basement of the old closed down nursing home is another place we see shadow people. Notice the mist forming on the upper right hand side of the photo. When the mist forms is when I often see shadow people.

What Are Shadow People?

Do you see the mist forming in the upper right hand side of the above photo. When I see this mist I quite often see shadow people. I don't really know what one has to do with the other but quite often when I see the mist I see shadow people. I have seen shadow people in the basement of this building with red fiery eyes. I know the first time I saw a black misty shape with the shape of a human being with fiery red eyes it scared the hell out of me.

I know I have seen ghosts many times and ghosts and shadow people are two different types of beings. Most ghosts look much the same as they did in life when they were living breathing humans. Shadow people come in various sizes and forms and while many do have human like form I am not sure if shadow people are ghosts or spirits of deceased persons or if they are some other form of spirit beings. Quite often shadow people are caught out of the corner of the observers eye and they vanish if you try to look directly at them. Some people have also claimed to catch or see shadow people in mirrors.

Other people have made the claim that before they see shadow people that they see mists like in the photo above. Other people have said that they see mists and that the room or area gets very cold before a shadow person appears. While other people may look into another room and see a shadow with a human shape seem to dart across the doorway of the other room or over in the corner of the next room. What are shadow people is a question often asked by people. Where do they come from and what are they.

There are a lot of people who ask the question why don't I see ghosts and shadow people? I really believe that there are some people who can see paranormal activity while there are other people who can not see paranormal activity. Why? No one really seems to know. Maybe some people are just more open minded than other people. But I will tell you that I truly believe there are some people who can see paranormal activity while there are some people who will never see paranormal activity. Why? I can't tell you. What do you think? Tell us all in the comment section below.

What Do You Think Shadow People Are?

Never have I saw as many orbs as there are in the photo above. When I walked into this room I heard a voice say , " Oh God Please Help Me " and the temperature in the room turned very cold. We have taken a tape recorder into this room and caught a voice on tape saying , " Oh God Please help Me ". We have also heard wild scratching sounds coming from over head in this room and at one time there used to be a chair in this room that would move on its own. One day we went to the location and the chair was just gone.

I have never saw a shadow person in this room but other people have claimed to and some people claim to hear a old lady laughing in this room. It is known that the last person to live in this room was a 86 year old lady and she died in the bathroom just down the hall.

      I saw a shadow person in my house. It stayed for about ten minutes. The smell was unreal. Swampy smell. It came in like a black ball and landed on my wall. It flew over my head brushing my hair. At one point it came off the wall and came so close to my face I actually thought it was going to kiss me. I was very comfortable at the time and wasn.t afraid. The house was very lit up at the time I was alert but couldn't talk I guess cause my daughter was in the house up stairs and I didn.t even call for her. After about ten minutes it would make gestures with its head and shoulders and then slowly came off the wall and turned into like a snow drift and went right through my front wall. It has not been back and it happened about four years ago.

      I am not one who is easily scared, I have seen many creepy and hard to believe things in my years but i have never seen something like this in my home before last night. I will explain in detail after you get a sense of things I have encountered in the past. Some nights i wake screaming with blood screams so curdling that even my military husband has been scared by them, I have seen people in my dreams that look normal aside from their dead black eyes and filed looking sharp teeth, they try to trick me in my dreams but they are unmistakable as they leave you feeling immediately in danger. I have woken up beside rivers and in closets without the ability to use my voice for days without recollection of how I made it to these places, I have seen (along with another girl who was with me at the time) A tall figure of a man standing in our doorway blocking us from leaving a room thinking it was just a person who turned out to be 2 floors below us at the time. I have woken up in the middle of the night to feel something sitting at the end of my bed, woken to see a wolf creature with the body of a man snarling at me at the foot of my bed, I have heard footsteps in my home with no one around to make them but me while I was sitting at my computer in silence reading books online on numerous occasions, doors that slam, smells of food when no one is cooking. I have encountered many scary things in the past. I have had nightmares of these things over and over since I was a small child and they have never gone away. But last night as I was going into my basement what I saw scared me more than anything I have ever encountered before in my entire life. There was a dark thick shadow at my back door (IT WAS INSIDE MY HOUSE) At first I just said to myself it was a coat rack with a coat draped over the top, it was around 4 feet tall and just still in the middle of my back door inside. When i turned and looked at it, it did nothing so I assumed it was just a shadow, I continued up the stairs and turned on the hall light and nothing was there. Then I decided I would double check, it must just be a shadow from outside peering in, when I turned the light off again there was nothing. I know I saw something there, a thick blackness with a domed top and draped like body and no face, I felt immediately terrified, the hair on my body stood straight and I felt like something was watching me but after doing a full sweep of my house I found nothing. For the first time in my life I was so scared that I was in tears. I don't understand what this thing was, how could there be a thick rounded black shadow there when the next second it wasn't, it was not created by anything outside. It was not my shadow as I am much taller and it would have been as tall as myself with how close I was standing to it. It seemed like the shadow of something in that spot like when you turn out a light and the objects in the room seem to darken to shadows but you can still tell something is right there because of the density of the blackness. I returned to my bed and I could not sleep, for 5 hours i laid in bed awake to afraid to fall asleep. I did not get any rest until the sun was up and my husband and son were out of bed. I am at a loss as to what to call this, whether it was a shadow person, a spirit, an alien I do not know, all I know is it left me feeling so uncomfortable that I dared not sleep while the moon was still in the sky. I hope to never see this thing again, even my cats were scared of it and ran and buried themselves under my blankets.

      I began seeing shadow figures on my nightly walks with the dog, about 18 months ago. First on the neighbor's porch, then on the other neighbor's roof. Then in other locations. Always outside and always at night. I would just dismiss this had the dog not barked at these entities. I am a bit clairvoyant, but have never seen a shadow figure before in my life. Whatever these things are, they are not friendly. They appear to be menacing. The dog hates them.

      Two nights ago, December 22, 2014, I was sound asleep and awoke to see a black mass in the shape of a hooded man or possibly a large women standing three feet from the side of my bed. The room was totally dark before and after the event and my windows are covered with shades that bright sunlight can not penetrate. The shadow being was normal sized and back lit by a bright white opaque light. The vision lasted only one to three seconds. No facial features, arms or hat could be seen and I felt no fear or maleficent from the image.

      You know....it's odd how many times I've heard stories of "shadow people" as black entities with red eyes, through several people who have NEVER talked to each other, let alone heard about it from anyone else. Granted the fact that so many people see them, normally without hearing them from anyone else, I think it is proof that they may exist.

      He is afraid of the dark.. So, I instantly got up to see what was going on. To try to put him back into bed and all. Well.. Get this.. He is under his blanket still, sound asleep. I then check his older sisters room, she too is sound asleep lightly snoring. So, I then go into our bedroom and lay next to the boyfriend. Maybe he was pretending to be asleep? Maybe he went into the hallway to sneak up on me? I shake him awake. Ask him if he is playing some joke on me.. He gets angry lol. Grabs a weapon and starts to search the house. Of course there is nothing to find. What I think happened is... 4 years ago TO THE DAY, my brother passed away. He had down syndrome and he use to rattle doors and slam doors all night when we lived together. His medicine didn't let him sleep on schedule. I am thinking he was letting me know he is still around sometimes. I'm not sure what else it could be.. besides it being someone else or something else entirely.. Which makes me a little uneasy.

      I was up late last night watching some shows on Netflix. I just got done checking on my kids and my boyfriend. I thought maybe the boyfriend would still be up since it was Saturday. But, no everyone was sound asleep.. No guilt in watching another episode.. ;) Well... After awhile around 12:30 I saw a silhouette on the wall across from me. The wall was connected to the hallway, we keep the hallway light on for the kids. I sit there staring at it... It went from right to left and right again and then left. Then disappeared. Then a doorknob started to rattle. For a whole minute I'd say. I was assuming it was our son trying to get into our bed, like he does a few times a week. You hear the door finally opening then it slams shut. He wouldn't do that.. He is afraid of the dark.

      They're us. Our shadows, our "other," our subconscious, which has a voluminous form and personality that differs from our form that is visible and known to the naked eye. When it's big and healthy, it can be witnessed sometimes by other people as an "aura." Sometimes I catch my own, just making its escape away from my inner sight in the early morning as I awaken, having ruled the night like a king in dream state. Sometimes I can see other people's, especially if they are acting "shady", like when they're really watching something that's happening across the room, but with their eyes looking at something else. At that time, their shadow is slightly separated from them, in facing a somewhat different direction, and visible, at least to me sometimes.

      I think there are many things that can happen for this otherness when we die, without a body to align itself to, but it is generally not to be feared. I've had much guidance from otherness, signs to help me avoid catastrophes (clumsily delivered at times, but always well-intended, and very clear). There is definitely a lot more activity in places with more history, and for me it's also especially where I have more personal ancestral history, and so I can only assume it's my grandmothers, and grandmothers' grandmothers' grandmothers, showing their enduring love, for what is left of them on this earth - me.

      I am 13 and have seen shadow people as long as i can remember but unlike everyone else where they stay within a certain area theres one or two that just seem to follow me to every house I move into. At first i just thought it was my imagination but know my mom has started noticing the 1/2 shadow people while shes in her room at night. Last week it was late at night and i was in the living with my computer while my mom was in her room down the hall sleeping. I don't why i did but i turned my head to look down the hall and was surprised to be greeted with a large dark figure standing in mom's bedroom door way looking straight at me, and i knew it couldn't be my mom because she is never up this late. We both stared at each other for a few seconds before i blinked and it had dissapeared. Recently we have learnt that i have physic abilities, which has led me to be suspicious that him/they aren't just shadow people. one of which has appeared in my dreams ,bad and good

      I saw many stories and I have seen myself a black shadow but not in a figure of a person, just a plain black shadow from the corner of my eye. I agree with many that this happens when your upset because I was too every time I see it, or when I feel very faithful talking about God. I also haven't seen it for a while and it happened every time I called out my dog's name. He is deceased 10 years now. I believe its my dog trying to tell me that he is near me and not to be afraid but watching me. I actually talk to him and say please don't be upset that I love this new little dog and the ones I have in Greece. I love all dogs and its all because of you my Kerveros. Oh I miss him so much that I know it has to be him because his cloud appears at the stairs where he used to like to sit and also in my mom's bedroom where he used to climb up and sleep on my dad's side. he used to growl at my dad when he came up and like a child he would cuddle between my parents lol. I not only saw his cloud but recently when I was very tired and down I decided to lay down in bed and take a quick nap. As I closed my eyes I felt him jump on the bed. My brother's mini pincher was at my brothers house that day therefore he knew she wasn't around and came on. I guess Kervero is smart because if she was around she would have barked. The dogs and little children are very sensitive and feel the presense more. I feel presense if someone walks behind me and I'm not talking about only paranormal type people. I mean walking down the street. FRom some things I told a friend once, she said you have a child heart and soul so you probably are sensitive to these things. Those who are faithful, childlike usually see these kind of things. When your faithful, the devil challenges you so beware. Try to have more faith in God, start fasting and feel strong. Trust God that the devil spirits cannot come to you. I have so much trust and faith that I really do not believe I will ever see a shadow person come to me because I know God will come to the rescue. YOU JUST HAVE TO HAVE A STRONG MIND. The devil doesn't like a smart wise ass like me for I command it to leave for Christ will be here if you don't. Once I actually heard it mumble and fade away. I was like "Yea !! Put your filthy tail between your legs and walk away in your tremble when you see Jesus. Trust me it disappeared after calling me a pig in my ear lol. Then I kneel and Thank God. I always do a prayer and it works instantly.

      The other night, every time I went close to my cat, she would draw back, ears down and start hissing at me, but when she looked at me, she was looking directly above my head. I got paranoid because THEN she started coming up to me hissing and growling, all the while looking directly above my head, so I took my cell phone and started video recording - it only took a couple of seconds for me to see this VERY HUGE looking dark black halo looking thing. It looked like it was attached to my back, as it was VERY CLOSE and VERY LARGE. You can actually see the fear in my eyes, and the way my pupils went from small normal size to very large and dialated. It really creeped me out as I've been telling my husband for quite some time now that something wasn't right in this house, I feel uneasy here, the atmosphere is very eery feeling. But when I saw that thing behind me, it was like it was standing right up against my back - it was just RIGHT THERE. I've been sick for a while now, no energy, always tired, no motivation. So anyway, can these things attach to people? Or what else COULD that have been if it weren't a shadow person. We do have shadow figures in our house, everyone has seen them, even friends who come over - usually leave pretty quick when they come over and see one. I'm sure there ARE some good ones, but I'm pretty sure the one's here in my house are NOT, especially with the smells we have, and my not being able to go ONE DAY without puking. This is un-nerving, and for those who DON'T believe in this sort of thing - I challenge them to come to my house, and I'll show you they exist. Even when someone new walks into the house, they'll walk in and start looking around causiously, like they're looking for someone to jump out and scare them or something - but people ALWAYS say that my house makes them uncomfortable and my mother won't even come back over here AT ALL. It's been over four years since she's been here. But always says that whatever IS here, isn't gonna hitch a ride with her to her house, so she just stays away. Anyway, if you have any suggestions on what I can do, I'd appreciate it. I've tried ALOT of things. The other thing is SOMETHING destroys ANYTHING religious I own, like my Bible - I woke up one morning, it was sitting on my desk, and it had a huge X carved over the whole front of the leather and books have been ripped out - I don't know where the books of the Bible went, but they're definitely missing, and you could see where they were just ripped out. Anyway, any suggestions? I'm really tired of dealing with this and trying to get help, but whatever is here is literally destroying my life from the inside out. There's ALOT more to the story but this was the most recent with that shadow thing right directly behind me and over me.

      About two weeks ago, i was walking back from the woods crossing a deep stream and i saw a dark figure across the entrance i go through and it was just standing there. it was there for about 5 seconds and i looked away to try to take a picture of it but it disappeered and my foot was feeling like it was being pushed out of the water so i crossed and got out of there fast. I told my friend about this and he didn't know what to say. i don't know if it was from when i was messing with a wiegi board or if it was a "demon". Yesterday March 2nd i was sitting talking to my step mom where the figure was standing and i had a dejavu and looked behind me and saw 3 kids, i couldn't see thies eyes and i fled back int the woods, crossing the deep stream. i was thinking that they were Black Eyed Chieldren,look it up, and took the long way back to my house. i talked to my cousin when i got back and he told me that he would have to be there to be here to tell me what it was. i still haven't seen the "demon" but my dad told me word for word" if a spirit shows you its full body, it is for a reason and it will be back." Any ideas what i have seen?

      I live in Tyler, Texas I and my daughter seen a black smoke shadow person with glow white eyes. I was driving down the rode a not even a mile from where I live. The shadow was crossing the street very fast after I passed the area to see what it was it vanished. When I got home I had my blessed oil in my church bag. I got the sense to spray me and my daughter. I even sprayed my front door and car as God gave to me to do. If anybody can help me understand what this means I will be graceful to know. I do know that NO WEAPON FORMED AGAINST MY FAMILY WILL NOT PROSPER. I want God to BREAK EVERY CHAIN BREAK EVERY CHAIN IN JESUS NAME. THERE IS POWER IN THE NAME OF JESUS. THANK YOU JESUS FOR YOUR COVERING IN YOUR BLOOD. PLEASE RESPONSE. As I was typing this message my phone started flicking. I scream out Jesus it stopped. I need understand. I have spoken thing that have come true. God telling me I see death right before my eyes and so did my daughter. I hope now one dies in my family by in the morning..

      I've never really seen ghosts but I've always have this shadow following me. He never really runs out of sight tho it's as if we are both comfortable being around one another. I've seen him for as long as I can remember even when I was a kid. He also appears often in my dreams often being some what brutal but sometimes protective of me. Another thing I find interesting about him is that he usually doesn't display his face but, sometimes he will have eyes and a smile appear. Its always the purest white. I also find that he likes to change his form occasionally as well. But he's the only one I've ever seen and he follows me throughout my life.

      I once saw a shadow walk in front of my television while watching it when I was a teenager. Has anyone ever seen a shadow person walk in front of a light source before? It was one of the weirdest experiences ever.

      Hello..I was wondering if what I saw could have been a shadow person. First of all, I never questioned anything like this, I simply didn't believe in paranormal activity. One evening I was getting my daughters pajamas out of the dryer, she was standing beside me. I was handing her the shirt and an image of a little girl in white with either black eyes or no eyes was beside her. I let out a small gasp, looked away and the image was gone. Was I just tired or could I have really seen something? A few months later, she experienced a night terror..we prayed at Church and nothing like those instances has happened again..but I would like to know if anyone has had an experience like this and how they handled it. Thank you!

      Okay so listen to me every one, the shadow people are NOT fake ever since I was little I have seen shadow people, and to this day I do, the date is 1/22/14 and the same one fallows me no matter where I go, they will find you and I never understood why they fallow only a select few people and can only be seen by a small amount of people, I know for a fact the only fallowing me has been with me my hole life and has no joke, got taller with me, and I see him EVERY WHERE and I have to watch my back because he IS trying to KILL me, with trucks and cars and all kinds of different things, I'll tell you a short story, I was racing my friend down a hill on my bike, and a 18 wheeler came around the corner of the street and I froze, and I know an angle saved me because my bike turned a perfect 90 degrees and I keep going unhurt but I was ONE inch away from the truck and the shadow person fallowed the truck and a white light went the other way and I remember seeing white hands on my bike while black hands from the truck where holding on the truck. They ARE REAL AND THEY ARE AMONG US. and it fallows me all the time and I have no Ida why, but I did find out in a witchcraft book that this shadow person is a black devil, and is not a friend. Don't trust the shadow people, keep your selfs save.

      i have always seen shadow people in my life until a few months ago, they never bother me but a night when i wake up there is one man usually just starring at me, but it frightens me and i never knew why? but my heart always starts to race. so i said please go away and leave me alone and the shadow guy took off and i haven't seen him since, so i was just wondering if it was my dad who passed away in 1997? then another time in an apartment in pittsburgh, pa their was a shadow lady always starring at me and i told her to leave me alone and i saw her shadow take off and go up through the fireplace even tho it was sealed off, so i never saw her again either.

      A year ago I nearly died. I do not think I would have survived the past year if it was not for the astral friendlies in my life. The Doctors nearly killed me and it took them a while to figure out what was wrong with me but the astral friendlies guided me to the doctor who saved me. They helped inspire me to switch hospitals. I sometimes see them but mostly I feel when they are near. I am not clairaudient. Sometimes they have to find creative ways to communicate; like through my dreams. Who or what they are I am not certain of, but in past history people see them as Gods, angels, fairies, aliens, spirits etc... There seem to be many different types of astral beings and not all are friendly. So yes I have seen them and I have felt them.

      For about a year and a half I've been seeing out of the corner of my eye a figure that is dresses like my grandfather (he passed away in July 2010) but the face is always black or isn't there. More often than not I get a very uneasy feeling when I see it and its usually at night or when I'm alone. Many times when I would see it shortly after my 3 year old daughter would wake up and tell me there is a monster in her room that came from her wall. I've told her that when she sees the monster to yell at it to go away and leave her alone but it worries me that it could be something more. Has anyone else experienced something similar?

      When i was about 5 or 6 years old my father would find me out side at night . I don't know how i was getting out there or did my Dad . Apart from only one night i have no memory of it apart from my Dad picking me up & chastising me for getting out again . He would find me just standing there looking up at the trees . The only night i can remember was me standing there in the night looking up at the roof of our house . There where children up there laughing & playing , small dark little figures running up & down the roof . They weren't calling for me although i felt drawn to them , i remember running down the side of the house trying to keep up with them .

      I just looked this up because I saw something pass by the doorway behind me while I was brushing my teeth looking in the mirror. Based on all this information here I would say if I did see something I shouldn't be afraid because that would attract anything that feeds off of fear. If whatever I saw is just a shadow of a person that passed away then they must not mean me any harm and I hopefully shouldn't be worried.

      I did however have a strange experience about 2 months ago. I still don't know if it was even real or if I was dreaming but it was the most real, intense, scary thing that I have ever had happen to me.

      I went to bed one night and later on in the middle of the night I woke up or was still dreaming I don't know. Then I saw a bright light where my bedroom door should be and there were 4 or 5 dark figures standing around my bed surrounding me. I tried to get up but I could raise my arms more than a few inches up like I was being forced down by 10 times the normal amount of gravity. So I tried yelling for help but all I could do was breathe in and out, I couldn't say anything. The whole time these figures standing around me weren't even moving. They just stood around me like statues and then suddenly every thing was normal and I was laying in the same position in my bed but now I could move and talk. I don't think I went back to sleep after that. I still don't know if it was real or not. I really hope it was a dream because the way I felt during that whole experience was terrifying. I have never been that scared in my life. I thought I was going to die or something.

      There have been many times when I've seen shadows of people. There was one time when I saw a bald, very frail and skinny shadow of a woman standing at the end of my bed and dancing. There was also a time when there was a shadow of the same woman creeping out of my bedroom, against the wall. When I am home alone, with my cat, we tend to see shadows together. There was another time where a short shadow of a kid, I believe, ran down my hallway into my parent's room. The most scary occurance of my life was when I was trying to fall asleep and I heard struggling breathing in my closet. I believe that the spirit in my house is one of our dearest friends who passed on from cancer.

      At 15 is when I first experienced ghostly encounters.

      I'm 38 yrs old now and have seen numerous of ghost,had numerous of things happen,and now my 13 yr old sees and hears as well.

      All I can say is do t be afraid...

      And defentiently don't let anyone tell you your crazy.

      People who haven't had these experiences are the first to claim your insane.

      I myself have lived with this and accepted what I see and hear.

      My son,who is scared of what he sees,knows his mom believes him,so it helps with coping and talking about it.

      He is now starting to accept it as well. He did just tell me tonight thou...as long as I do t see anything real scary I'm good with it...lol

      Last summer i show some kind of shadow but i wasn't and still not sure what exactly it was. I woke up that day and i was really upset and angry for no reason. I was supposed to go on a date with someone but i didn't want. I just didn't feel like it. My brother was sitting on the computer, and cuz i had no credit i couldn't call the boy to tell him that i couldn't go.. so i wanted to tell him by facebook, i told my brother and he said to me that no and that i should go on a date and for some reason i got out of control when he said that... i started shouting at him and my friend who was next to him telling them that i don't want to go... and i started hitting things..... anyway after that i got out of the apartment crying and i went on the roof. I sat down crying but i didn't know why.... I just kept crying none stop. It was quite light at that time and suddenly as i was sitting down with my hands on my face crying i heard a dog's breath, it came closer and closer until i felt it just next to my ear and i got scared and turned around and i show a black figure, it was really tall and dark, had no face and no other features but the shape was like a human. I screamed and run down stairs back to the apartment i couldn't breath normally and kept screaming. Basically i had a panic attack... After that i kept having nightmares about it.

      I to have always seen shadow people, to begin with its almost like a black flash out of the corner of your eye.and this would happen in day time.the present one is of a young shadow man I feel around the age of twenty. He wears a hoodie and stands and starts through the lounge window,they are always outside.and dissappear as soon as they realise you have seen them. I don't feel they are their to frighten me, im not sure what there purpose is.very recently I have seen a black shadow cat on the landing.again as soon as I acknowledge them they are gone. To be honest with you until I just googled this I just thought it was my imagination. I had no idea that so many other people saw them as well

      Ok, recently went to my first Pow Wow. Bought some jewelry and have been enjoying studying the Indian (Native American) culture and the meaning of some of the tribes symbolic animal meanings. Went to sleep last night and awoke to an Indian in Regalia (full headdress) standing near my doorway. I was groggy and struggled to adjust my eyes to see more clearly to see if what I was seeing could possibly be real. As I blinked several times to try to clear the sleep from my eyes, the image disappeared and I was then only now looking at a picture on my wall, nothing to do with Indians. Confused, wondering if I were dreaming or did an Indian come to visit me? Have no clue. Maybe dreaming because of all my research? I could swear there was an Indian in my room. If there was, why? If so, is it good luck? I don't know any deceased of that culture. Still trying to figure out if this was a shadow type person, or if I were dreaming with it in my subconscious? I did not feel threatened or scared. Would love to hear your thoughts!

      I was kind of young when I first saw my shadow person well not mine but you know, I was about 2 or 3 years old and I know its that time that your barely aware of what's happening in the world but I remember it clearly; It was late at night not sure what time it was but late I was in my Parents bedroom just watching Tv when all of a sudden I have this feeling or presence more like a feeling to look at the door. It was locked but when I look I see someone Not too slow or not too fast opening the door. It was a huge large figure (remember I was small) It had to be 6 feet or more not sure, but it looked like a Human like figure with Really red eyes so I try to wake up my parents but they wouldn't like react to anything i did so I think I covered my face and maybe passed out.

      These things have tortured me since I was old enough to remember. They are not good. They are not angels or spirit guides. I can tell you this because I have spent my life researching them and reading/listening to thousands of stories of other people who have encountered them. Do not try to make contact with them, you will only feed into their egos and make them stronger. For first encounters or for the little 'rat' shaped shadows, command them to leave in the name of Jesus Christ. Say it with conviction and use your anger in your voice if you can. For the more malicious (the red eyes) and reoccurring ones your going to need a bit more. First, try a priest or preacher. Have them bless the residence. Make sure the windows and doors are open so the negative entities can leave. If that doesn't work, and I have seen it not work before, your going to have to do it yourself. The fact of the matter is, you are the master of your home and of your own personal space. YOU have to make that very clear and you have to mean what you say and believe in what you are doing BEFORE attempting this. Open all windows, doors, cabinets, attic doors, etc. Smudge the entire residence stating from bottom to top and back to front. Smudge yourself as well. Once you have reached the main entrance room of your home speak with authority and say " In the name of Jesus Christ I banish thee, evil spirits, to the place that God and judgement has set aside for you. Remove yourself from me and never return for I am a child of God." Once the words are spoken bury magnetized lodestone at each four corners of your home. This helps 'filter' good and bad energies from the property. Always remember that God put a light in us all and this can be used against them. As to what these shadows are or want? I still do not know. I just know they are very bad, egotistical, they seem to enjoy fear, people most often feel sick from them being around, and they can mimick voices and sometimes take on the form of the living to trick others. During investigations they will not allow you to get any footage of them physically, however, you will always get tons of very clear evps. Anyway, I hope I have helped in any small measure.

      When I was around 7, I would go to bed and a dark face would appear in the corner if the room, I was terrified, I was wide awake with the covers if my bed up to my chin, every night it would get nearer and nearer, with a pulsing kind of movement, I would tell my mum about it but she would say I was sleeping and it was nothing to be afraid of, it got nearer and nearer until I knew if it came again it would actually be touching me but that's when it stopped coming to my relief, some time last year I mentioned it again to my mum, and she said I did not want to scare you more at the time but I had the same thing at your age!! The strange thing is we where both sexually absurd by a relative when we where both young too, I always feel the two things are connected, like they marked us in some way, when I was a teenager I saw something in another house we lived in but this looked more like something like a very short man not even higher than the hight of am old devan bed, I startled it as it jumped back, I jumped too, then walked as fast as I could to my bedroom, and put my chest if drawers behind it too, the dog too would watch something in the air until a noice was heard like something crashed into the wardrobe, where the dogs eyes had landed, around the same time my mum thought she dreamt that a small man/creature crawled under her covers and bit her anckle, she was telling an uncle about this and when she lifted her jeans to show where there was a small bite mark, smaller than a child's! Not sure what either if these things where but they scared me especially the dark one

      I've always believed there was something present here on earth that we are unable to understand. I've had some "weird" inexpiable experiences, but had never seen anything with my eyes...until this past Saturday night 9/07/13).

      All the lights were off in the house with the exception of our TV in the bedroom. My spouse and I were lying in bed watching an Indiana Jones marathon and it was about 10:00 pm. We had just gotten Conan the Great Pyrenees Dog off the bed (Conan is 130lbs and on this night it took us about 30 minutes to "convince" him to get off the bed, which was weird in itself) and were enjoying our new found space. The TV sits on a high dresser on the wall in front of us and the bedroom door from where we lay on the bed is to the left of the TV on the same wall. I was focused on the movie when I caught what appeared to be movement in the hallway, it was like a soft form coming down the hallway towards our bedroom door and then it turned to it's right where the hallway ends at either the small back door or the office. I was thinking to myself what did I just see? Did Conan just walk by, but it was too tall...like human tall. As I'm sitting there silently going through this in my mind my spouse says, "it just looked like someone walked by our bedroom door". My spouse is a Scientist and does not believe in anything that cannot be proven. I looked at him and gently asked, "You saw it too? What did you see?" The description of what he saw was the exact same as mine. There was zero light that could come down our dark hallway from that direction and play tricks on our eyes, even he agreed to that. I got out of bed to go see if Conan was in the front of the house and he wasn't....he was actually laying beside my spouses side of the bed in the farthest point from the bedroom door. Not the typical spot for Conan to retire and actually he has NEVER slept in that spot when we are present. He sleeps in the hallway outside of bedroom door where he has the best view for potential intruders.

      It did not frighten me or make me feel weird. I've always felt that someone/thing was watching over me, just a feeling that I cannot explain. I don't know what we saw.

      Im 14 and I've been able to see shadow people since before I can remember, and I see them almost everywhere I go. It never bothered me though since I've always been into ghosts and stuff.

      My house is really old and was built in 1912. I've lived in it all my life and there have always been shadow people here. From what I have seen there are about five. There are also three ghosts I believe, this is due to the fact that they look extraemly human and have clear features.

      The shadow people like to poke fun at my dog, it drives her crazy and she'll bark and run into things. I've often caught glimpses of the shadow people slipping through walls before she can reach them.

      The ghosts however are a lot more docile and usually only bug me.

      The first ghost is completely white and hides in the mirrors and painting around the house he seems to follow me everywhere, my dog stares at him a lot and will often gard me. Though this ghost has never done anything.

      The second ghost I think is a child. They stay at the top of the stairs, and I will sometimes hear her giggle or clap. She plays trick a lot which has caused me a couple of falls down the stairs.

      The third ghost is actually rather new. It only appeared a couple of weeks ago, when I was hanging out with some friends at a park.

      Almost all of my friends have seen them except a few that don't believe in them or have never seen one ever. My mom can't see them but she can hear them. I'm pretty sure my little brother can. He's six and talks a lot so they usually stay away from him.

      My best friend says there so active around me because they know I can see them. I was wondering if this is true?

      Back when my dad lived in the house he said that it was just my imagination. Sometimes he would even poke fun at me because of it. One day I remember he had said something that got me crying, and out of nowhere a book flew of the shelve had hit him in the head. He looked cold all of a sudden and his hair stood on end. (I've never been sensitive to the cold so I've never noticed tempature change when they are around) I started giggling because he looked so frazzled. He looked at me got up and left. He's never talked about ghosts or shadow people with me again.

      I collect old nick-naks and have a lot of old stuffed animals, and I wonder if stuff like that can attract them. I know the shadow people like my tea sets because I offten see them move or hear them clinking. A lot of the activity is in my room or staircase just outside it, I think this might be due to the fact that it's in the attic.

      I know that the shadow people and ghosts in my house aren't harmful and I don't mind them at al, but I was wondering if there is anyway to help them?

      I have seen a few, I have one that appears every now and than it's the same one since i can remember. For some reason i just know. Each of they give out different "energy or feeling" when near them.

      At age 14 i had a second one that appears every now and than as well, this one is scary like mention, it has red eyes sometime, but not always. At time the presence of the second one can be felt through out the house, my mum often feel the presence of the second one. It sometime gives out a flower like smell. Once i was crossing the road it stood in the middle and the next thing i knew; i was in a hospital and that car had ran me over.

      At time the it can be seen that the second shadow would be staring at me from a Conner and the first shadow standing behind me staring back and the second shadow. A few of my friend have seen it and some have felt it’s presences. Recently I keep waking up in odd hours of the night, and at time seeing a green glowing shadow like thing and I would feel very tired. This is my first accouter with a green one. I know I saw a torques colored one when I was very young I think I was 9 or 10 it was beautiful and warm. I am not quit sure if they have multiple color, mostly those I have seen are black.

      When I was younger I lived in an apartment that had closet doors made of Mirrors. Shortly after we moved in I started seeing short shadows run across the walls. At the time I didn't really mind them, but now that I'm older I can't help but wonder if it was the Mirrors that made them appear? I used to stare at the Closet Mirror while I slept. Did the Mirror have anything to do with it?

      I have heard stories and can remember telling my mother my entire life about seeing these types of things. I recently discovered I have two brain tumors and a friend with Parkinson's recently came out about him experience with Shadow people only since developing Parkinson's. It seemed like it calmed down from the age of 12-24 maybe. But really the past 4-5 years particularly the past 2 years have been really affecting me. Finally my fiancé seen a figure I pointed out that actually hung around for the first time ever for about 10-15 minutes. We are 27 & 27 years old and have not spoke about this to anyone and actually have only mentioned this one experience openly to each other and acknowledged it one time. The figure was approximately 5'5 (measurement estimated by dresser it was standing beside nearly behind. Anyway I had been compelled to waking up a lot 3-4 months ago for weeks on end dating back a solid 6 months. I seen something standing in the corner with a rather large head. Like aliens from the old Roswell movies. I sat up so violently it woke my fiancé, he asked what I was 'seeing' (he is one of the first people beside my family who believes I have these hints attached to me and believes I see them due to my previous blood curdling screams a few years ago) anyway my fiancé could see it too!!! We kept the TV on but on a grey screen channel due to me being scared and waking up seeing things for so long and screaming and crying that everyone feels bad for me especially my fiancé. This shadow would not go away. We finally clicked a lamp on and off and still seen it moments later yet it was like it stepped behind the dresser more. I hid under the covers after the lamp experiment until my fiancé said it was gone. It all started with 'shadow people' during my pregnancy with my last baby 3 years ago. I seen the man with the hat and so did my oldest child (6 at the time) and my mom. We all ended up describing it at one time in a sort of crying fest after we all held it in for weeks thinking everyone would think we were nuts. I was contacted by a friend and her priest because of all the things that went on in my house I am still living in during the time I was pregnant. I have since became a believer of God and pray. I still wake up and have 8-9 foot structures lurking over me or people staring right in my face and figures always walking out of a certain corner in my bedroom and continue on In front of the foot of my bed like a busy New York Sidewalk. My friend I mentioned earlier wit Parkinson's says he gets out of bed at night and jumps at them and watches them run off, I have never heard anyone else experience that but he says doctors tell him people with brain abnormalities like my tumors or other things experience paranormal activity or what they say they personally believe in the scientific world as people from other realms/planes. It's hard when my daughter who is 8 follows in my footsteps and I have to tell her she was dreaming or it was her eyes playing tricks, those excuses stopped working when our nearly 3yr old started telling us in clear sentences what we had all not been saying out loud or admitting we had been seeing. My fiancé wants so badly to see these things but has only been witness one time in his life and that was with me and maybe he just wanted to see what scared me so bad he convinced himself he seen it. Just my experience, it's been way more experiences than I have kept track of!

      For as long as I have known I see random shadows dart around. either in broad daylight or alot during the nighttime(pitch black/tv that is on a no change channel). The most desturbing images I have seen with shadows dealt with a painting of Jesus, for the oddest reasons my parents hung that painting at the bottom of the stairs. I never could go down those stairs after dark. I would always see an old lady that creeped me out.

      Other shadows that I have seen are animals, not human. Whether it be crazy speratic movement like bats, or even calm movement like cats. They tend to follow me around. But if I get cold chills there is usually a hostile shadow around that effects the night. Remember with all good shadows there are hostile ones out there.

      A theory on what they might be is the remnants of past Humans, or animals. their energy remains after death to guide some who lose their ways. I have to look deeper into my theory but I swear don't trust them all, if you have a gut decision that something isn't right about it.... get out.

      Still wondering what the heck these shadow people could be years later. Demons, ghosts, entities from another dimension, some kind of watcher or guide, aliens, time travelers.. or just some overlap of time lines where we cant see the real figure.

      Perhaps the shadow people are here to add effect.. but as they are seen mostly at night, only one could wonder if darkness gives them power to manifest themselves on this plain or in this reality. Weird stuff.. but whatever they are there is a video on youtube of a shadow person hiding behind a corner and a camera caught it. If you look you might find it, it was caught by a camera crew. That to me put the nail in the coffin that these things are very real..

      I remember seen many shadow people in Israel though my friend said she saw a white person before.

      The scariest encounter I had with shadow people was when I was still in daycare. Back then my family (mom, dad, and me) used to live at my grandmas house (she is divorced) There are two bedrooms, the first bedroom down the hall was my parents bedroom, and the next one was my grandmas and my. (I think my grandma was away that night because otherwise she would have heard me scream and cry for my mom) One night I woke up seeing shadows come in through the door of my room, some had bright colourful outline, I was too scared to move at first as I thought they would kill me, but then I started to panic and turned toward the wall too scared to look at them, as I was calling for my mom, but I was too scared to be to loud i banged on the wall a couple of times as I was crying. It took a really long time for my mom to come because I was too scared to be loud. When she came I told her that there are figures walking through the door but yet she could see nothing, as I watched them come in one after one. Finally she picked me up taking me into her room, we walked right through the figures looking back I could see them walking after us, in the hall as we went into her room but then she shut the door, and they didn't follow.

      I remember around 6 years ago I lived in a very very old house. One nite I woke up and I couldn't move, I was stuck in the position I was in. It scared me to the point that I started to cry. Next thing I know I see a big black figure in the corner of my wall. It was about 6 feet and it was crawling up and down. After that a few weeks later I saw a girls face in my mirror. Her face was pale and she black hair. Now I'm married and have a little boy and in his room closet I had that same mirror, and he would wake up screaming and yelling or sometimes running out of his room.

      "Pieces Of Night" is a term I first heard from a 6 year old boy, the son of one of my ex girlfriends.

      Small, shadowy figures that live within the shadows.

      I saw them when I was a child, as too did my older brother... they'd dance around in the corner of the bedroom, flitting around behind the other bed on the other side of the room but would always keep themselves in my peripheral vision... they would never allow me to look directly at them as they would move to my peripheral vision if I tried to look directly.

      Small, dark shadows with large, deep, dark eyes... maybe the size of a small child, possibly a medium sized dog is a better description of the size.

      When my ex girlfriend's son started having terrors and he mentioned Pieces Of Night, I knew immediately then, I hadn't imagined it and that he also, was telling the truth.

      I cleared his bedroom and set psychic barriers (yes I am in touch with that side of things)... after that, he was fine and had no more disturbances.

      I was a child in preschool. i lived in an apartment with my mom and brother. my bed was in my mothers room and i normally slept in the bed with my mom, which if i were to sit up and look forward in my moms bed the door would be on the right, outside the room on the left was a bathroom on the right was a miniature hallway,leading into the living room on the right and on the left into the kitchen, straight across from my mothers room was my brothers room. i remember waking up in the morning wiping my eyes, i looked towards my brothers room, his door was open and i seen this tall black figure it had no face no features no clothes just a black tall figure of a human, like a shadow standing up out of the ground on its on, dash right into the hallway. it was in between my mothers room and the bathroom and it was looking left and it was looking right like it was running from something or looking for something. me being a little kid screamed as loud as possible, when i screamed it looked directly at me i remember this so clearly, i watched it run into the wall next to the bathroom. i shook my mom awake in fear and told her what i saw, she thought i was making it up, but i never forgot about it, and she started realizing i really did see something since i never forgot about it. im 22 now and since then ive been afraid of bathrooms. i believe it followed me to a different house and i seen it again one more time when i was in the bathroom of that new house. i feel watched every day thinking that its there watching me

      When I was little, I used to see dark/black silhouettes of a grown man walking in front of my eyes. The last time it happened was when I was at a hotel near the VA beach. I was sleeping with my mother and I just suddenly woke up because I was sweating like crazy. I've always been scared of everything, so I have been sleeping with my mother my whole life because I'm too afraid of being alone. Especially in the dark at night.

      Anyway, I woke up, but with my eyes still closed. I opened them slightly because I felt as if something were watching me. I can always tell when something or someone is watching me. So I opened my eyes slightly or just enough to see some dark figure sitting on the chair in front of my fathers's bed. I was really scared, but kept quiet.

      Another time was when I was ten and swimming at this indoor pool. I was hungry and about to get out when I saw this rather vivid black sillouette walking in front of my and my mommy's eyes. I asked my mom if she saw a dark figure walk by and she said no.

      After that day at the pool I started praying every night and I stopped seeing them. I have a habit of making imaginary friends and talking to them. I made this friend in the basement of my house where I talk to her. Her name is Elizabeth. I THOUGHT she was an imaginary friend, but I didn't know when I told my friends about her.

      My friends came over for a tea party and after I decided to tell them about Elizabeth. We went to the basement but for some reason I couldn't feel that she was there. Sometimes I see figures at the corner of my eyes. I know what Elizabeth looks like. I can feel it somehow. She has short curly brown hair and brown eyes and is a little shorter than I am and has light/tan skin.

      Two of my friends didn't believe me, but one did. She told me to be careful. Anyway, after that a LOT of strange thing started happening. And only when I was home alone. When I'm in the family room, I can hear someone walking up and down the steps. I hear someone whispering "Zainab" very softly. When my best friend Noura came over, I told her everything that happened. Then suddenly, I felt the need to look to the area in front of a mirror at the hallway. And then right there, I saw her. It wasn't a black figure and it wasn't vivid. I could tell Elizabeth was there. I saw a faint white outline of her standing there. My terrified look must have shown on my face because Noura looked there and could tell something was there.

      A few days later when I was in the kitchen reaching up to this high cabinet for a plate, for some weird reason a plate flew out and was heading for my head when before it could touch me, it flew past me and landed on the hard floor right side up without a crack. I KNOW that plate was supposed to hit me, but it didn't. I have a strange feeling Elizabeth isn't the only strange thing in my house.

      In fact, just now as I am writing this, I saw a black thing above me at the corner of my eye somewhere on the ceiling like spider man. I have no idea if Elizabeth is good or bad. My other friend believes the white outline of a girl (or boy) was either my dead sister or brother, and that they are trying to protect me against Elizabeth or something. There are other strange things happening too.

      I recently tried to commit suicide, ever now and the a see a cloudy figure, not a shadow but an actual figure standing somewhere, just watching me. I know it's not shadow people cause it's nothing like all of you have talked about, it's black smoke, barley see through, when I walk up to it, it seems to be afraid of me and leave. But if I just watch it then it will just watch me, no face or anything, just black smoke like figure, very tall. I had someone say it was a brother of death sent to report my actions

From the corner of my eye I saw a dark shadow moving very fast as though it had come from the left and I saw it on my right shoot through the wall. This happened two more times has anybody any ideas what it could be. I've not seen it since. I'm not afraid of it but would just like to know what it is

      When I was younger, about 8 or so, at a house my family was renting in laidley, queensland, australia, I think I saw one. I was in my room playing my computer with my cousin when I looked out my door into the lounge room and I saw a small, hunched over black figure. It was wearing a raggard black hooded robe. I watched it slowly move about halfway through my lounge room when it's head suddenly jerked towards me and we just looked right at each other for a moment, I saw its red eyes staring at me, in what seemed light shock, as if it had been trying to sneak up on me and I caught it kind of shock. Just as I started to see its accrual face a little more clearly, it just vanished instantly.

      I still have no idea what was happening exactly then, but I have glimpsed it a few more times every now and then

      Jennifer, what you just narrated has shocking similarity to what I experienced a few years ago. That house where I lived was like under siege, no, nothing we see in the movies. Scares me now to think of it, scares me what you just narrated. You ever heard your kids calling you or your kids heard you calling them when in reality none of you did, but you sure heard their voice, heard them calling you? This is what used to happen to us. Often, we would hear each other calling us when we are in different rooms and when we check we would find that we didn't-I mean sometimes I would hear my mom calling me and when I would check with her she would say she didn't, vice versa. This was something that continued so long as we lived in that house. Then out of the blue I started seeing dreams, in my dreams I would see huge figures wearing black robes, they would come close to me and then suddenly start choking me with their hands, I would try to scream but there would be no scream, when I open my eyes I would feel my jaw stiff and then would come the scream. I saw these dreams many times and there came a point when I wouldn't sleep without lights on, these dreams always came either on Thursday or Friday nights. The first dream before these ones started was of a woman wearing red Indian saree (bridal one) and greeting me in an Islamic way-adab arz hai meaning greetings. I consulted a doctor and he said it could be a heart problem, I got my heart checked doctors found nothing, they said it could be a mental problem. I shifted that house and dreams stopped, voices stopped and my question was if it was a heart problem or a mental problem where did it go after I shifted home! I also had two pets and one of them often would start barking in the night time looking towards the window from where those dark figures would come. After I kept those pets I stopped getting choked while asleep but weird things continued to happen. The pet who was most aggressive, would bark looking at the window died young and of reasons still unknown to me. Doctor said her liver had enlarged. Knocking we would hear but on the main entrance only. One interesting thing happened, like a couple of times I felt someone touched my thumb with his while I was asleep and I forgot it. Then one day my mom woke in the middle of the night and came to our room asking who came to my room. We said no one and then she said someone just touched my shoulder with his thumb and I thought its one of use who needs a blanket. I never told her this then how come she also experienced the same stuff I don't understand. Now that I have shifted to another house, its my brother's house and here too we have a problem in one room. That room is haunted, because my brother in law slept there and the next morning he said he is not gonna sleep in that room again, he had seen some horrible dream, then my mom's sister slept there she also said the same thing. I slept there first time and I saw a bed in the backyard and a feeling as if someone had died on that bed. The bed we actually had in the backyard and the very next day I asked my brother to throw it out, that was years ago when I wasn't living here, much before what my brother in law and mom's sister experienced. I would be interested in knowing more about what's going on there and how are you dealing with it. One positive thing in all this is that you have a pet in the house.

      I've been seeing a dark shadow for a long time now... It feels like my late husband, especially when he plays... like when he pulled on the carts as I was trying to work. I always felt good interacting with him... he always know how to make me smile. I never feared them until a couple days ago when I saw a white( or light) shadow. It left me with an uneasy feeling. What could this new shadow mean?

      This is absolute crazy, I mean what's being said here. Only yesterday I flash of light, I felt someone entered the other room. I was so confident about it that I actually got up and checked the other room, behind the door, under the bed mentally prepared to confront and fight but there was no one. I had a feeling it was a female. In the night same day my mom woke up all sweating and screaming. I rushed to that room and asked her what happened and she said someone, an old woman whispered in my ear-you saw. A day before I was standing outside smoking and suddenly I felt a strong presence of spirits in the bushes and on the tree outside my home. I let it go as a crazy thought or feeling and had forgotten it but after what happened in the afternoon and later in the night I feel something weird going on here. I agree what is said here, human spirits, animal spirits do exist, the world of spirits and ghosts do exist. Many times it happens that when I go to some place I have a strange feeling. I once visited my g/f place, was sitting in her room and had a weird feeling, I shared it with her and out came horror stories. We knew each other for years but she never told me until I said what I felt. I got lot to share but people here would think I am crazy so won't.

      I seen shadow figures. When I was little we lived in this house that was close by a very small church. Haunting and eerie will describe it for me. I must have been 3 or 4 years old. I was outside with my mother and grandmother, they were talking by the picnic table. There was a very small amount of woods by the house and a wood pile. I always went by this wood pile, never remembered looking up before until this experience happened to me. I was standing there by the wood pile and I happened to look up for some reason, never did before that day. When I looked up I seen this very dark outline of a boy with a dog running behind him. The outline was so very clear to see, solid black I could see the nose and mouth of the boy. No features, just the outline. The same with the dog. Everything about it was so pronounce and hard to miss. As I was standing there watching, the boy was running along with his dog. The boy was laughing, the dog was barking, and I heard the ground were twigs fell break. Was startling, I don't remember if I was scared, I know I was very surprised. As the boy and the dog ran pass and disappeared I instantly ran over to my mother and grandmother and told them what I had seen. My mother and grandmother denied what I had seen. My family has always had some kind of paranormal happening. Many if not all of my family members have seen something or been apart of something paranormal. I've asked my mother about hers and she told me. One experience was when I was a baby, an ashtray flew off the mantel and almost hit me in the head, another involving me was that I use to talk to a little boy named Charlie. Charlie is who I think the shadow boy was. I know after I seen that shadow boy, every animal that we seemed to get would die in some weird way. Was never just hit by a car. A dalmatian we had was found hanging over the metal fence by our house, was hanging by its neck. I believe that the small church had something to do with this boy. Not sure what it was. I just know everything about the house when I was 3-4 and everything around it, just didn't feel right. Another happening was when I was married. My husband had told me that he had two "guardians" following him. I don't believe they were this. I was getting out of bed one night and I seen this one out of the corner of my eye. It reminded me of a hog, no snout, no curly tail though. It was hunched more, had fur, and what looked to be pointed ears. I'm not sure what this creature was, I know it scared me. I've always felt like there was something watching me. I rarely ever feel alone. Those two happenings are the most profound that has happened to me. I try to block the feeling of a presence near me, sometimes it does not work.

      Once I was walking with a friend and some person I never seen before and my friend never seen before was driving fast down the street. This person slowed down just enough to yell from her car. "Stop stealing from your friends grandmother" she looked like a crazy dark haired older woman and she was in a messy old sedan with a faded paint job and in need of a good wash. My friend thought the person was crazy. I thought she was crazy too. Strange thing is, I was stealing from my friends grandmother. She didn't seem to notice or care, and it wasn't much that I took. I was kinda freaked out from that. But, I kept right on stealing from her. Till I found a new BFF. What I did get from the experience. I think there are people or somekind of beings that have superhuman abilities. I don't know what they are. I have had other things happen to me also. I live kinda mischievous & recklessly at times. I feel like these super beings have sent me messages. Sometimes messages are blunt. Other times they have been subtle. I think they try to tell me I'm doing something wrong. After all that's happened, I really started to believe in God. At least more than there is not a God. I also think most people have no clue what God is really about. I would say I have no clue also. But in the times in my life when I experience strange unexplainable occurances. I feel Love was involved in some way. Love was being nurtured or developed in some way, or Love was being betrayed or destroyed. What does all this mean? Man I don't know!

      OK, TOday around 12-1pm i went to take a bath as i was in the bath with the water running i had the shower curtain closed(you can see through it as it is not a heavy curtain. While i was watching the water, trying to clear my head from the conversation I had with a Friend who just did a cowrie shell reading on a question I had for him. I am trying to open my mind to my abilities I have had since I was a child, Say around 2-3 I had encounter with a GYpsy who had owned our old house before us. While my was up in the attic I came across this huge portrait of a woman,I didn't know who it was, my mom told me not to touch that picture. The picture had a strange aura around it mom said. She had died in the house before we purchased it, the house was haunted and would hear a marbles dropping down the step at 3 am. This is so true, years later I became friends with someone who friend had lived in that house after we left the house. Said the house was haunted and the marble sound is still there, and as is the Picture of the GYpsy. Getting on to why I came on this site, The BLACK SHADOW I saw I thought was my husband, I said to him welcome home home and I love you. Then I said to myself that couldn't be my husband cause he would have come in and opened my curtain. I jumped up from the tub started to recite the LORDS Prayer and the 23 psalm, then I called my friend back, he toldme not all black shadows are bad, he said what did i feel i said confusion. He said that is ok, he said that since I have had my gift of seeing death in my dreams was a gift from GOD that my other abilites are growing, I can see ghosts just as I did last night, out of the corner of my eye while my family was watching tv i saw a figure peeking out from behind the doorway in front of me, it was a young white male green shirt, tan pants, and blond shaggy hair, i don't know anyone who fits that description, then i couldn't see the face so I asked it to show me its face in my mind, it did. IT turns out that the person i saw was my daughters friend, I told her to call him and tell him to be careful in anythign he does then i got a really bad feeling in my stomach. I have had preminissions since I was 10, and 99% were not good ones. I predicted my friends serious illness as she got in the car, mind you she never knew she had kidney problems no less a transplant. My sisters store going up in flames I knew the date time and how it happened, helped my sister locate her missing grandson, i told her he is safe just lost and sitting on a stone step of a house with a yellow frame and the numbers of the house 2398 then I saw a business in the picture that is how we found him, even the police were baffled how i did it. Where we live we don't go tht high, it turned out he was with friends in another town and got separated, my great nephew has autisim and frequently forgets things. I can read minds, feel your energy and tell you what is going on with you. My mom gave me this gift as she gave this gift to my two other sisters out of ten kids. they don't use these gifts I am the only on who can see death, i can predict when your going to die and how and where your being laid out. I predicted my cousins death. Shock to me, cause she wasn't sick, car accident in Jamaica, she was in Jamaica at the time and i dreamt of it the day before, so I had no time to tell her. I did write it in a book of my encounters and date and time. Now I am seeing more and more of these black shadows, my friends hous across from me was haunted i actually had a little boy or thought was a baby boy who held my hand, it turned out to be a demon . We also found out that house was where a father killed his wife by strangling her cause she drowned her baby boy in the tub. that house has so much strange stuff going on, the paranormal society came and took pictures and the pictures showed some really wild stuff in the back window, when the picture was taken was a beast that looked like dogs bit were evil and when the picture was taken it was supposed to be of the inlet. I can go on and on, I can see and feel the ghosts, I saw my grandmother at 13, and since them I see feel and some times take on their entities (which I don't like ). I have been trying to develop my abilities more to control what and who can come to me. I just cant hear them yet.

      Alyssa,

      Don't fear them, for they can not hurt you; trust me. Know this when you feel their presence or see them. If you have faith, ask them to leave in Jesus name. Prayer always works for me, even if it doesn't expell them, I feel still always feel better. Another way to look at it is they are your guardian angels sent to give comfort in these attacks you have. You may feel them to be deathly, because 1) they are not alive, or 2) you don't understand what your seeing or feeling and it can be very scary. I have such presence around me all the time in my seeping quarters, except I will not bow or budge to their will or manifestations. This is my room in my house, and I fall second to no man, or spirit in this world, or any other, in the ownership and rights to that. Now that is not to say I don't have to share by feeling this way either. I can not make something leave that I have no control over whatsoever, but I have learned to deal with it. Guardian angels are good, and so they might be, but if you still fear, ask in prayer for protection of these entities, by the hand of Arch Angel Michael, he comes with a big sword and a mighty vengance upon these things. Fear not Alyssa, you are a child of our Father in Heaven, and He will bless you with what you need if you humble yourself enough to ask Him in faith, I promise you that. I will pray for you in this and wish you the best. Keep your chin up, you are stronger than they are a million times over. They have no power over you or control on your life. the most they can do is stick around and annoy you a little bit. Even though they look and feel scary, their ability to actually cause you physical harm is minimal if even at all. Only emotional and psychological stress is where they can get at you, and even then only if you let them. So if you stay strong, and show no fear, knowing that they cant hurt you, I think you will find yourself able to overcome this. Good Luck. And God bless.

      Hey, I've been having panic attacks. What causes them is seeing this black figure of a very tall man. I don't see him mostly but sometime I see his reflection instead. I'm not sure if I'm not seeing thing or if I am. He always shows up when I have a panic attack. Not to mention the girl, the one that looks my age and my height. She doesn't give me panic attacks but is sometimes there when I'm about to. Both are one of those red eyed ones and are very deathly in their presence. I used to have nightmares about the girl touching my shoulder. Because of these experiences, I have not been able to sleep in my room for an entire year, the only place I am completely alone. The male didn't show up till last summer after a big goat show, yes I show goats, and my first night home from it. He pretty much surprised me, he had angry eyes and no I didn't see him, more like have a freak out when I felt the presence. First time ever had I been compeled to name something I couldn't see but feel. His name is George.

      I still have no idea if he is a shadow person or just my imagination turning stuff into a panic attack... Oh, the place he is at the most is my parents bedroom.

      I have seen several of them, except, they are only at this very old cemetary, for pioneers. the first time, I was riding my bike through the cemetary as a shortcut home, when I saw to my left, ten feet away, a dark figure looking out from behind a tree. It had no face, and was like a shadow of a man. I saw it for a second before it disappeared. I road home fast that day. I went back out of curiosity many times. Most times I saw maybe one or two, other times, not at all. But about a month ago I saw five, but that time was different, they didn't hide, and that scared me more. I road my bike out as fast as I could, but I had the feeling of someone trying to follow me, I looked back and didn't see anything, but I had that feeling until a few blocks to my house. I've never been back since. I heard from my mom that about the same time I saw them, the city had stopped selling plots there because they had found out that there were people already buried there....

      There are definitely shadow animals, I have also witnessed them myself. Last night was most recent actually. I often see dogs, which is weird because I prefer cats, LOL. My cat was playing with a ghost cat one night, that was really cool. I have been tormented by these entities for the last several weeks and either they are getting stronger in the ways that they can manifest themselves, or I am becoming more in tune to my surroundings. Or just losing my mind! I see and hear these entities every single day, most of the day. They still have the ability to scare me sometimes, rare, but still manage to pull it off. Never been harmed by one but just their dimmeanor can send a chill down my spine. They can move things around like doors, they love the doors, and blankets and most recent the tv will turn. I can feel them when they get on my bed or walk on it or sit or lean like they have the weight of a human adult being. Very weird I know but I assure you this is all true. they can tug on my clothing to get my attention, and at night once in a while they will tap on my pillow just like a kid would that is just trying to get your goat, really gets me going sometimes. I have witnessed many great and miraculous things lately. Last week I saw a ghost riding a ghost bike, inside the house, apparently no manners on that one, LOL. I have seen children entities, adult entities, and some that I don't know what to say about their gender, just evil. Some are very polite and warm, while others just rub me the wrong way. I have a few that hang out all the time, and many of them wear glasses, get that one. One of them is constantly eating and drinking something, yet still manages to keep a good figure, I guess:) Well to all those who understand what I am saying, keep your chin up. These things are very real and we are not crazy. Although sometimes we may feel that way. I am proud to say that this is aa gift from God that has been given to me and consider myself blessed, not cursed. We all should. Not everyone has the ability to see and hear the veil on the thin side. We are in the end of times where our Lord and Savior will rise again, and in these times I believe that many more of us will come to "see". These times are taking the veil over this world and causing it to rip and burst open. I love you all my brothers and sisters, make yourselves ready, for the time is near. I pray for all of you and enjoy reading about your experiences. You are not alone in this.

      I'm still totally freaked by what happened last night. So I went online to look for some explanations... and found this. After I read that part about 'guardian angels', I was so relieved.

      Let me just tell you what happened.

      So, I was listening to some music in my room, second floor. Nobody was there, just me. All lights turned off expect the light that was coming down the stairs from upstairs - my father was reading.

      So I just wanted to got to the hallway, my room's opposite the stairway... and saw a shadow there. It looked like it was coming down the stairs and now sneaking to get down another pair of em til you reach the main floor. I got totally scared because I didn't hear anyone coming down (remember, I listened to music on my iPod) and that happens sometimes. Sometimes someone of my family just comes down the stairs.So at first I didn't think much of it.

      The shadow stopped a bit like my bro or dad would do and looked at me, probably noticed me, so I started to grin and was like 'alright, you got me frightened this time' and the figure went on going downstairs close along the walls. I went after the shadow to see if it actually was my brother who scared me and to tell him to stop frighten me, only seconds after the shadow went on. I would've seen someone on the stairs, I mean, I was fast enough.

      But there wasn't.

      I knew my dad was upstairs and he didn't look like the shadow anyway. And since it seemed about as tall as my brother when he'd duck down a bit... I went to check where he was. He told me, he was downstairs watching TV since about 15 minutes. And my mother could confirm that, because she was with him.

      A reflection of the nearby balcony door couldn't be the reason either. Blinds where down, no light coming in. And that figure actually blocked out the light coming from upstairs, you couldn't see right through it. Almost completely solid. Like a person.

      And now that I think of it, it was much taller then my brother, considering how lowered the shadow sneaked around.

      I told my family of what I've seen, they didn't seem to believe me. We then checked if all doors were locked, but nothing. No intruder... how could an intruder be that fast anyway??

      I often heard footsteps coming from the floor above, even if there's no one there. Could that be connected somehow?

      I'd really like to know more about it... if it's really a guardian angel (which I think is the most likely atm), because I didn't feel like it was sad, angry or something like that when it looked at me.

      Well all of this, even some of the comments, are very interesting! Why I even started my searches in the paranormal is because of shadow people. I see them everywhere, and two of my friends back were I used to live used to see them two, but then I moved away and they don't see them anymore but I still do which I find mysterious. Its almost like they fallow me. and most of the time I only see them for a split second right before they disapear behind something, but the first time I had ever seen a shadow person I had woken up around 1 in the morning and my bed was right by the door, the door was to the right of the bed, and I had heard something that sounded like a large lizard crawling on the floor and it went from the left side of the bed to the right side and when I looked at the door there was a hooded shadow standing at least six foot and no one in my family is that tall, then a peacful but dark feeling over whelmed me and I passed out

      Last night I was sitting on the couch and I happened to look up and I saw this shadow of a head with shoulders and then I remembered seeing legs and feet. This shadow walked fairly slowly taking a couple steps and then disappearing. This was around 9:30 ish at night.

      Around 3:15am my older dog who never has to go outside in the middle of the night started to pace around my room so I took her downstairs to go outside (door is right by where I think I saw this figure) and when I opened the door I saw a shadow in the middle of the yard and my dog just stood there with her hackles up and when looked at her and back up the figure was gone.

      So weird. I don't feel freightened as I do believe in this stuff just never thought I'd actually see one :)

      I know there are shadow cats and shadow dogs. I have seen both. The Hound of Goshen in SC I believe is a shadow being.

      I recently started researching about this "shadow beings" topic due to me seeing them many times about 4 years ago. Every time i used to come home to my room, I would a huge shadow moving very fast across the ceiling and then vanishing. I would blink my eyes thinking it's not true but then other incidents of those shadows happened and i started to become a bit scared in fact. Nevertheless, they didn't harm which i'm glad for after those incidents stopping 2 years had gone by until 2 years back when it had been 3 months since i had transferred to my new school. I was the first one to arrive in my class or in fact even the school. I was simply standing in front of the heater, when i had a sudden urge to look down at my feet where i saw this weird round ball shadow creeping near my left foot....of course i was very very surprised and jumped back and well screamed. The shadow went to the back of the class which was basically a corner and there were no back doors to the class. After being surprised like that i thought to check if it was a rat/mouse and went to the back of the class but it had vanished....I found this pipe but then i looked in it, the pipe had been blocked with the wall and was in a way just a decoration. I checked all the tables and desks...But i couldn't find it. All the windows were clsoed and i had closed the classroom door myself.

      Now i understand there are shadow people, since there have been many many sightings of them. My question is... Are there shadow animals as well?

      I'd like to know why some can see them and others can't, what do they actually want if they want anything at all. I was told to tell them to leave/go away..I'm not afraid of them, they just seem to linger about.
