My Daughter Sees Shadow People


My 10 year old daughter sees shadow figures. I believe it started a little over a year ago. She would be in her room or in the bathroom and would scream in terror and tell us she saw the shadow. After a few weeks I decided to take her to the eye Dr. He checked her eyes, dialated them and fully inspected. There were no findings of issues. One night, my husband was laying in bed by her because she frequently saw the shadow that day and she said " there it is... Right over us now." He saw nothing. My Husband and I for the next several weeks told her she was safe and nothing will hurt her. She complained less and less. I decided the other day to ask her if she is still seeing the shadows and she asked "Why, are you going to send me to a therapist?" My heart broke and we had a very long detailed conversation about how she is still seeing shadows. She said they don't scare her as much anymore unless she sees them when she is not expecting them. The shadow in our house is typically the same. She did see a box (dark shadow box) the other day on her floor. She kind of laughed it off. She told me that at her friends house she sees different shadows. At school, she sees a shadow that she thinks is young because it is smaller. She can feel their presence. She said she can not tell if they are male or female because they are not that detailed. She cannot see clothing and they are not transparent. They mostly just watch her. I cannot see anything nor can my son or husband. We have 2 dogs and they don't seem to notice anything. Her pediatrician looked shocked when I told her and changed the subject quickly. I really just need some resources on this so I can let her know what this is. I think I need to know for myself more than she does at this point. Is there someone we can talk to that can tell us what they are? We are Catholic and I am afraid to talk to the priest for fear that he will scare her. I have read where priests thought that this was evil and I really don't think it is an evil presence based on her experience stories.

I used to see shadows kids as a child and felt vibrations of them playing and walking around the house I would search for them. One day I asked them to reveal themselves. They never did I guess it was my aunts two kids that died in the house. After I confronted them they never showed their Shaw figure fully to me little by little they faded away. She should try to confront them to see what is it that they want. They don't cause harm. I believe the child shadows was a bit frighten when I noticed them I thought I scared them off. I would feel them move and run around the house whenever I slept alone in the house. I later developed a gift to tell people what they were thinking and feeling as I grew older. I'm 34 now I still believe in the invisible world of shadows but I'm no afraid of them. They won't hurt if you're brave enough to confront them. I still see shadow movements from time to time from the corner of my eyes. Even though I no longer live in the house and the house got tore down. Its a gift that we shouldn't be afraid of.

Hi Helpforken1,

I'm a Casting Director working on a really exciting new show that I think might be a great fit for you and your daughter.

I'd love to chat with you in more detail about the project and your incredible daughter if you'd be interested. Feel free to shoot me an email at raisingparanormalcasting [at]

hi I am new to this site but found these post to be helpful my 11 year old son says that he see things mostly shadow people he has taken to sleeping with his door closed cause he says they don't bug him when his door his closed. I don't think this has to do with the house that we live in cause it started happening a few years ago while living in another place. I do believe that he is seeing something at times I know that it scared him cause he says that he see dead things like cats and dogs as well as people how can I help him. I to have heard and seen things that I can not explain but I feel like they are attached to me son.

I too have a shadow person; he hangs out in our hallway and I say he because it's a very masculine feeling I get when he makes himself known. My dog sees him a lot but when he is active usually my life is in turmoil and I have never felt a threat from this man. I honestly believe he's here to protect me. Some years ago I did a Protection spell. At one time I was deep into the blackest of magick and I called upon demons. It worked and I was never so scared in my life so I did cleansings and called upon protection spirits. Every since then things are calm and my 'friend' looks after me. I still do cleansings and I talk to my protector. Shadow people aren't a bad thing and many times simply want to help. Thank you to anyone who reads this post!

I too have the same problem. I am 26 years old and have seen shadow people since I was 15. I never had any dealing with spirits or the other side until my father passed away when I was 15 and I think this triggered my spiritual side and since then my experiences with the paranormal have became frequent. I recently seen a shadow figure in my mothers kitchen and straight away I knew it was my father as the shadow was tall with broad shoulders and leaning against one of the side boards, this was later confirmed by a trusted medium I have went to in the past who knew nothing of the event and was able to tell me I had seen my father in the kitchen. I often wake up in the middle of the night and they would be at my bedside just watching me sleep but as quick as I see it the shadow has gone. I truly believe this is my father or my grandmother who I believe is my guardian angel just watching over me and protecting me. I feel spirits energy as soon as I walk into a room, my experiences with spirits are countless. I often hear them calling my name or attempting communication with me when I go to bed at night and about to drift off into a sleep I believe this is because I'm in a meditated state of mind. Your daughter has been given a very special gift and it is terrifying to begin with but as she grows her gift will grow with her, as it has with me:)

I am 60 now and have seen the Shadow People and/or Spirits since I was 12. Most are good but I have had many bad experiences also. If you don't want to experience them, all you have to do is ask God to send Michael the ArchAngel to please come and take the Shadows/Spirits away immediately. Michael shows up within seconds and the Shadows/Spirits are gone.

well I don't really have much experience with this topic but my sister has had some of those the same things happen to her (she told me that sometimes meditation helps a lot so I encourage you to tell your daughter to start meditating) and if your dogs don't bark or do anything it probably means that the shadows your daughter has seen aren't bad they just haven't been able to leave this world yet.

Ugh, I hate to talk about this but I feel it'll add to this topic. My entire childhood I would see shadow people, mostly at home and at night. I used to wake up to buzzing noises and the feeling of static over my body and would open my eyes to multiple full body figures, usually 3 of them standing either near my bed or the door way. I would get so scared that I would pull my blanket over my head waiting for them to go away and sometimes it worked but other times I would hear them come closer, often poking me through my blanket. It was most nerve rattling when I would have to use the bathroom because they would pop out from door ways right in my face waving there arms while another would sprint down the hallway straight at me then disappear as it passed me. Because of this I had become so frightened to get out of bed at night to the extent that I would pee the bed until I was 15 years old. I still to this day can't sleep without some form of light as well as a fan running because it helps drown out the static hums I hear when they are present. It's caused me severe anxiety my entire life and still effects me until this day. I'm 26 now by the way.

What can I do to make it stop?

I read your story and I felt I needed to respond. I understand what you are going through since I myself have children who can see these shadow people, amongst other things. It is called "seeing in the spirit" It is a gift from God and can be used to help others in the Body of Christ. These shadow people are spirits like you have correctly deduced. They are not benevolent spirits either. If they scare your little girl they are not good. If these spirits were from God they would make the person feel love and peace and they don't. Here is what works. They don't like light so keep a night light on in her room. Put a CD player that plays continuous worship songs, they hate music about God. Then say prayers of protection over her before she sleeps. Then you and your husband both rebuke in the name of Jesus any unclean spirits from your home. You ask the Lord to send warring and guardian angels to surround her all day and night. You teach her to understand her authority in Jesus Christ and to rebuke these shadow people when she sees them. Like" I rebuke you in the name of Jesus Christ, leave and don't come back" This of course is the authority we have in Jesus if we have accepted him as Lord and Savior. Explain to your child that Jesus died for all our sins and that he was resurrected 3 days later and now sits on the right hand side of God in heaven. Explain this to your child ask her to accept Jesus into her life. I understand your Catholic so this is a little different but Jesus you see is the only way to truth and life. The word says that he is the only way and that when we accept him as Lord and Savior we will have the same authority. When my children accepted Jesus they received the same authority Jesus had. My kids now rebuke these shadow people (spirits) and they don't bother like they used to, in fact they run when they enter a room. These spirits can hurt people, they have strangled and electrocuted my oldest child when he was about 8 years old before we knew how to deal with them. Spirits can also bother, terrorize people in their dream. They can also go as far as sexually abusing people. I repeat they are not good. So pray that God protects her dreams when she sleeps as well. Try to get people to pray for your family. I will pray that God guides you to more knowledge on how to help your family. That God sends his servants to help you. God Bless.

Thank you all so much for your advice. I will take everyone's advice and hopefully can give her some piece of mind. She is sleeping with her brother tonight because it seems to be getting scarier again. I will continue to try and support her and keep her feeling safe. Anymore advice is definitely appreciated. This is all so new to me and my husband.

I have read your problems of your daughter. Please don't get scared and don't make your daughter to scare about this shadow peoples. I am a catholic my suggestion is would be first as a parents try to understand this shawdow peoples. Visit this website then in this situation I can understand as a parents how you both in worries about your daughter. So Dont worry Jesus always be with you and your family.

Please follow this steps for a month

1. Buy some christian story books or comics like moses, abraham, david, solomon, daniel, jesus.

2. Every day tell those story to her before sleeping where she can understand about God and his mighty miracles. Which gives confidence to her.

3. Whenever she comes back to home ask her to wash her foot with water.

4.Whenever she talks about this showdow peoples show her your love to her. Don't leave her alone always comfort her.

5.Finally make her to understand that apart from all this shadow peoples most wonderful God, Jesus and holy spirit is their for her. And try to teach about the Michael angel who is the head angel for the army of God.

These all makes her to understand something good is there which is more high from this shadow peoples.

There is a God's will be there always.

I can understand if one of our family member is suffering from this like problem. I have seen how my sister suffered from this problem now how she has been recovered in the name of Jesus christ.

Please don't go to any median or witchcraft,
Just follow what I have said for a while then comment to johnnytag007 [at] gmail [dot]in

In the name of Jesus christ
Let be you and your family be happy.

Thank you

I see shadow people myself and I am 30 years old. Quite frequently, I do see them communicating with me by hearing deep scary voices or as simple as waving, giving me hand signals to go somewhere and so on. With my personal experience, there isn't harm, though now its getting a bit more aggressive. The best advice for her right now is to have her search up on youtube about setting boundaries. So I guess you probably wonder why she sees this right? Well, I have been searching for this answer for a while now. Now that I have found out, this is due to the third eye being activated. So later, it will become clear and she will see spirits not just shadow figures. Like me, I now see the background of events that happen to those who past away. HOpe this help.

Shadow people are quite common when youths
Enter into puberty.
Due to the large amount of hormones in meat plus
GM aka:Genetically Modified food.
Youngsters are now entering into puberty earlier now
Due to the food chain.
So the age of 10yrs old sounds correct when a childs
Body goes into a different phase.

As for myself and two daughters we were all different
From each other. But had abilities.

Our Eldest at 33yrs of age is having her first child,
A girl we knew! But when I ask about the child I get a glimps of her life and her ability to see and feel
Spirits, and she will see them solid then move like a wisp of air and disaprear. Something I have grown into during time.

Reality is all humans have some psychic ability.
This can range from gut intuition, to Dreams that come true, seeing spirits, or hearing things.

Its important to help our kids and grandchildren,
By pointing the way: by validating by listening to them.
Asking them to make a note of what is true.
Inquire of the child what do they feel or sense.
And ask them to ask for verification of what they
Sense. They and you may be quite surprised.

She sounds as if she is coming into her own.

If she asks why she see's just tell her everyone
Is different and that there are others like her,
But it would be best not to share this with everyone.
She sounds as if she has good sense.

As for being Catholic you should read the Book of Acts
Since Paul was caught up in a vision and saw things.
Old Testiment: Prophets and Seers saw the future and foretold
Future events.

Good journey

Please don't worry. It sounds like your daughter may be a psychic. This isn't something to be ashamed of. I like to take it as a special gift from God himself. The fact that he chose me (and your daughter plus many others) to see the world he created on a whole new level and to help others. The shadow people she is seeing cannot harm her though. They aren't tangible figures. She may feel their presense or their touch, but they cannot physically harm her. I can see shadows as well. I rely mostly on meditation to see if one of the shadows can communicate. Some have. I would research on google because this is one of my newer abilities. I'm mainly a dreamer. Just remember: This is a gift from God. Whatever anyone tells you, your daughter is special. And there are a million others in the world just like her, and like me.
Good Luck! If you have any questions I can try my best to answer!
