Amber's Story From Newberry South Carolina
I have been reading your Shadow People Hub Pages and I thought I would tell you my story. Me and my husband just moved into an old house here in Newberry South Carolina with our three year old little girl. The man who rented us the house told us that some people who have lived in the house have reported seeing strange things in the house. He said that some people claim that the house is haunted.
My husband was at work and my daughter was asleep and I was watching T.V. in the living room when I looked into the kitchen after I thought I saw movement and I saw a black male looking shadow walk across the kitchen and straight through the back door with out opening it. It flat tripped me out because I had never seen anything like that before. I jumped up and looked out the back door but nothing was there. I called my husband at work and told him what I had seen and he admitted seeing it to a couple of days before. He said he hadn't told me because he didn't want me frightened.
I wasn't as much scared as I was amazed. Since then I have seen it several more times and its always in the same place. It just appears in the kitchen and then it walks out straight through the kitchen door. I haven't seen it in any other part of the house though I have heard someone talking upstairs but I can never locate the source of the talking. Sometimes the front door will be open when we get up in the morning. It has three locks on it and two of them are on the inside so no one is coming into the house through that door or the back door. Its neat living in a haunted house as long as the ghosts never try to hurt me or my husband or daughter. I kind of like sharing the house with ghosts and I believe in a after life now when I never did before.
Karen's Story From Charleston South Carolina
I've lived in Charleston South Carolina all my life and I see shadow people downtown in Charleston all the time. In fact almost every time I go downtown I see them. I see them in all different shapes and sizes and while no shadow person has ever spoken to me I'm sure I see the same ones watching me and appearing near me. I really do wonder what they are exactly and where they come from. I'm glad to see that other people see them to. At least if I'm crazy there's a lot of other crazy people seeing the same thing.
Abbie From Arizona And Her Shadow Person Experience
I have been in my house for a few months now and I share it with two other roommates. My boyfriend and best friend along with her baby girl were staying over and I was awake because the baby was crying and woke me up. Once I got her back to sleep I went to use my laptop and found that it was dying so I went into the living room to get my power cord.
When I came to the entrance of our living room I found myself staring straight at a shadow figure standing in the middle of our living room. The room was dark but it was not completely dark because of the light from the hall. I stared at it for a couple seconds and then looked down, keeping my fear controlled and subdued because I have read about how you shouldn't show fear especially to demons. When I looked back up, it was gone.That doesn't seem that scary but my boyfriend was sleeping on the couch in the living room because me, my friend, and the baby were sharing my room. Once it was gone, I heard him start moving around again. I quickly grabbed my lap top charger and went back to my room. I wonder if they are demons or ghosts. I wish I knew. I've never seen it again but I know that it was there. I didn't imagine it and it wasn't a shadow caused by lights or anything. It was a distinct being.
Jennifer's Shadow Person Story From Florida
My best friend Casey lives above two girls who practice witchcraft. She has seen shadow people in her house; she says they move very fast in slow jerky movements. Her bed has started shaking and she called her friend Steve in to see it shake and he said he never would have believed it if he hadn't seen it himself. After the bed stopped shaking, the mirror on the wall started shaking too. When she asked one of the girls downstairs if she had seen anything, she said, "Yes, I've seen them. Isn't it cool? " I'm not sure if cool is exactly what I think but yes I've been over there and seen them. And one day I saw one in the yard of the courthouse downtown next to a old church with a big cemetery. I've always wondered what they are and you know its amazing because I've been in the room with two other people before and one of the people will see the same thing I'm seeing and the other person will look at us weird and claim to have seen nothing. I wonder why.
Sandra's Story From Alabama
I also have the bed shake in my house here in Alabama and when it does I often see a short shadow person and a tall thin one. I usually see them at the foot of my bed and if my bed shakes I know they are there. A man in the 1940s just back from the Second World War hung himself in the attic of the house where me and my husband now live. He hung up there for about a week until his brother came and found him. We often hear sounds of thuds and bumps from the attic and I know it is not animals of any type. I'm not scared of our house but I wouldn't go in the attic at night either.
My husband and his family are Catholic and my husband had the priest from his and his mothers church to come and bless our house including the attic and the priest really acted concerned when we told him what happened up there. I know he has asked us several times after that if anything else strange has happened. He told my husband that something up in that attic made him nervous. He said he felt like something was watching him in the attic and it didn't want him in the attic.
Now that did spook me and make think. When we get ready to have children I'm not really sure I want to raise them in this house. But I may feel different when or if we do start a family.
What Are Shadow People?
Your setting there in the living room watching T.V. and just over there in the kitchen you suddenly catch a movement out of the corner of your eye. Your sure you just saw something but did you. Some people will tell you that its your eyes playing tricks on you. And while this may well be the case in some instances I for one am convinced that people are really seeing something. Is it a ghost, a demon, or are there places where people or creatures from another universe slipping through. I for one believe they are spirits. And I'm convinced that they are the spirits of people who have died. Over the last thirty years or so I have been studying shadow people and I have found that they are often seen where someone has passed away or near graveyards.
Have You Ever Heard Of A Being Called A Raven Mocker
The Cherokee Indians have reported shadow people down throughout their history going back hundreds if not thousands of years and in Cherokee Folklore the Cherokee people tell of a creature called the , " Raven Mocker ". It was supposed to be a creature described almost exactly like shadow people. The Cherokee legend said it was the spirit of a dead Cherokee witch and it came back from the other world to prey on the living Cherokee.
Shadow People Near The Cherokee Indian Reservation In North Carolina
If you leave the Cherokee Reservation now and travel Highway 441 towards Bryson City you will see a large creek on the left side of the road and at one point you'll see a huge mound that used to be a Cherokee Village several hundred years ago. Many people including myself have seen shadow people in the area of the ancient mound there. Most appear to be male and they are all black shadows with no facial features. Some people have made the claim that they have seen shadow people with fiery red eyes there but I have not. I have set there near the mound along the creek and watched shadow people watch me and other people and then dart away through the trees. Some just appear to jump in the air and vanish.
Sightings Of Shadow People Seem To Be On The Increase
The sightings of shadow people seem to be on the rise and more and more people are claiming to have seen shadow people. Shadow People are the most commonly reported paranormal phenomenon being reported in the United States. Shadow People seem to be seen more in the United States than anywhere else and they seem to be seen more in North Carolina, Arizona, and Wisconsin than in any other states.
Chimney Rock And The Bottomless Pools And The Shadow People There
For hundreds of years people in and around Chimney Rock North Carolina have told of seeing shadow people all around that area. There used to be a little area known as the Bottomless Pools and it is there where I saw shadow people as a small child. I and my Grandfather both saw them and they were dark shadowy shapes that appeared and dissipated in the forest there. One second they would be there and the next second they would be gone. You could see no features and we saw the shadow people on the ground and up in the trees. The Bottomless Pools Park is now closed and some locals will tell you it is because of the shadow people. I have heard the stories of the shadow people at the Bottomless Pools all my life but I have never saw a photo from there. I recently tried to get permission to do a paranormal investigation there but I was told no. Other people and organizations have also tried to get permission for an investigation but all have been told no.
Are Shadow People Evil Or Demons
I don't believe they are demons but some may be evil. Some seem to be confused and they may not even realize that they are in fact dead. They may not be as much evil as they are angry. They may be trying to talk to us and we can't hear them. If so that may be what people are thinking is evil. I have never heard a single report that a shadow person has ever harmed anyone. If you know of a single documented case of a shadow person harming anyone get in touch with me. I would like to know the story and know where it happened.
Can Shadow People Harm You?
I have had shadow people appear to move towards me in fast jerky movements and while it was hair raising it did me no harm. I have saw shadow people with fiery red eyes and while they looked scary as hell I'm not sure they can hurt anyone. I even think there are some shadow people who are doing residual hauntings of particular locations and I don't think these type of shadow people even know we are around. And there are some people who think the shadow people around them are guardian angels but I don't believe this. I believe that all shadow people are the spirits of people who were once live human beings.
Are There More Shadow People Now Than Ever Before?
Are there more shadow people now than ever before? No I don't believe this either. I believe there are just more people willing to come forward and report what they have seen than in the past. I believe shadow people have always been with us. But in the past before T.V. shows about the paranormal people just didn't tell of seeing strange paranormal activity like shadow people.
More Shadow People Are Seen In And Around Cemeteries
I truly believe that from my years of researching shadow people that you will see shadow people around cemeteries than any where else. There are exceptions to this but there could also be ancient burials like near Cherokee North Carolina that we don't even know of today.
Did You Just See A Shadow Person? No Your Not Crazy.
So if you just saw a shadow person no your not crazy. You probably really did see something. Exactly what I can't tell you. But I will tell you that I don't think Shadow People are evil spirits or demons. I think shadow people are deceased spirits of people who were once living breathing humans. I will tell you that many times in my life I have saw shadow people and I have never been harmed by one. If you have a shadow person question you would like to ask please post it below. I want to thank you for reading my Hub Page on Shadow People and I hope you enjoyed this Hub Page.
A Great Ouija Board Ghost Story From Texas
Coping With Shadow People
I have a lot of people email me asking about coping with shadow people. I don't believe a shadow person is going to hurt you. I have seen hundreds of all descriptions over the years and I have never been harmed by one. I know I have seen them for the last forty years if not longer.
I do not believe that shadow people are demons. I know there are some people who see shadow people as menacing vengeful spirits but from everything I have seen through my own research and experience I just do not believe shadow people are demons or evil spirits. I believe that they are the spirits of deceased persons. I know from my own experience that you see shadow people a lot of the time where human deaths have occurred.
If you are seriously afraid of a shadow person in your home look up the prayer of protection to St Michael and pray it each time you enter your home. If this doesn't work contact the priest at your local Catholic Church and ask for his help. If that doesn't work email me through the site here and I will try my best to help you.
If a small child is seeing shadow people and are afraid buy a small Bible and have them to sleep with it under their pillow. Say the prayer to St Michael in their room after they are asleep. If this does not work contact a local Catholic Priest and ask him to bless your home. If all else fails email me through the site here and I will do everything I can to help.

Tammy's Story September 2012
Me and my children moved into a trailer in a trailer park near Tampa Florida in April of 2011. Over the next year or so me and my fifteen year old daughter saw several different shadow people in and around our rented trailer here near Tampa.
We saw at least four different shadow people including a short one I think was a male about four foot tall with fiery red eyes. They would walk around in our yard at the trailer park and we would often see them in our trailer especially in the bathroom and hallway. We would be in the bathroom and they would just walk in one wall into the bathroom and out the wall on the other side of the bathroom.
If we told our story to a lot of people they would think we was crazy. But I can assure you we are not crazy. My ex mother in law from Texas came to see us at one point in time while we lived in the trailer and almost as soon as she was in the house a shadow person ran or floated quickly through the kitchen. She looked at me and said, " Did you see that". I said yes and she told me all about seeing shadow people while she was growing up in west Texas. My ex husband is doing life in prison in Texas and my ex mother in law says that prisoners in the Huntsville unit of the Texas Prison see shadow people in the prison there all the time.
We moved in July of 2012 to Miami and we haven't seen any shadow people in our house here though other people where I work say they have seen them in their homes.
