Seeing Shadow Images


I've read quite a few stories on this site and I feel that I could maybe get some insight on my experiences. I'm not really sure exactly how long this is been going on, but it's been within the last 2 1/2 to 3 years that I've actually started paying attention to it... But I've been seeing things that the only way I know how to describe them is "shadow images". It's not always human, thou typically when I see a human form it isn't shadows... I can see detail to the point where I can tell you eye and hair color.

They never say anything and I always see them around other people. A good example would be one night while I was up late in the living room talking on the phone with a friend I noticed movement out of the corner of my eye. At the time I was living with my parents and hanging on the wall by the entry way that flows into our kitchen, my dad hangs his jacket for when he goes outside to smoke. It was in the 2am hour and after seeing the movement out of the corner of my eye I looked over to where it was, which was by my dads jacket and I saw that the jacket was swinging from side to side, almost as if somebody was standing there moving it from side to side. And when it stopped, I seen a face peering at me over the jacket, like they were in the dining room and looking around the wall at me.

Being familiar with spirits beings in the house (Deceased family members, mainly my great grandpa on my mothers side) I'm typically not afraid when I see things like this, but this particular incident left me terrified. When I seen this face looking at me, I thought for a minute it was my little brother who is 8 years younger than me messing with me, so I said that I seen him and he needed to stop and go back to bed. The face continued to look at me for a moment and then darted out of sight, immediately I got up and looked around the corner where it had been and I seen the figure of a man standing in the hallway looking into my brothers room. If asked, I could describe this man in detail.

He continued to stare into my brothers room for a minute and then looked over at me and just smiled and tipped this wide brim hat he was wearing and then disappeared. Now I've seen this man around my brother several times before and I never get an uneasy or fearful feeling from him, so I'm assuming that he's my brothers spirit guide... But his face was not the face peering at me over the jacket.

I went into my brothers room after the man disappeared and checked to see if he was asleep and he was. I went back into the living room and set down trying to figure out what had just happened, when all of a sudden a picture of my brother that was on the side table across them room fell forward and a cup that was on the same table went flying across the room... When I walked over there, I became so cold I started violently shaking and my teeth were chattering. It took me every bit of an hour to finally "warm up".

After that is when I really started noticing that I would see movement out of the corner of my eye and when I look over I see shadows, and strangely more often then not they are of animals... Or appear to be animals. Sometimes I can make out what type of animal they are and sometimes I cant.

Last night I was sitting in the living room watching a movie and during the whole movie I would see movement out of the corner of my eye but when I looked over there was nothing. Finally the movie ended and I used the remote to shut off the DVD player and TV but when I did, the stereo that sets on top of the DVD player started going nuts! Not sound wise, but the display screen kept going through all of its features CD/Video/Tape/AUX/Time Display and everything, just rapidly displaying each feature on the screen and then it stopped on the clock. Once it stopped on the clock it had the correct time but it increased in 1 minute increments every second, at the same time I noticed movement again out of the corner of my eye, same spot as before and when I looked over this time I seen the image of a snake slithering down the recliner. It wasn't fully a shadow, I could see clearly that it was a snake but it almost had a "transparent" look to it.

Once it registered that it was a snake, it disappeared and the stereo stopped freaking out, the room got kind of chilly for a few seconds and then I felt what seemed like a group of people that I couldn't see walk past me and then everything went calm.

Nothing else happened, so I got ready for bed and had a dream that I was trapped in this huge "pit" for lack of a better word, in the ground on property that looked strangely like the property my house is on and there were about 10 other people in there with me, one being my brother who is about 4 years younger than me. In this dream there were men standing over the pit looking in at us and they were dropping snakes in the pit with us. At one point, as snake... Very similar to the one I seen slithering on the recliner, bit my brother. The dream ended with me holding my brother and sobbing because the snake bite had killed him.

The next day, my brother came over to the house around 8pm and he had been taken to the ER because in his gym class he had been pushed down the stairs that runs in between the bleachers... It was equal to about 3 flights of stairs and according to DR's the fall should have killed him because of how he landed when he hit the bottom. I'm not exactly sure what to make of all this, and I would love to be able to understand it. I've always been a firm believer in the supernatural/paranormal abilities and while I don't believe I'm fully psychic, I believe the events mentioned above as well as a few others falls into a relative category. Things like this doesn't really run in the family, however my brother Jordan, the one who is 4 years younger than me, does occasionally have dreams that end up becoming reality and he always gets them typically a week or 2 before they happen.

Does anybody have any insight on this? I would love to hear from you all via email as well on here so if anyone would like to email me with insight my email address is LadyLyrical0607 [at] aol [dot] com

Thank you in advance,

I'd like to ask about this as well, I have been reading a lot of those life after death books lately and also on life for animals on the other side, and how to communicate with animals here as well, for about the past 3-4 weeks I am sensing animals all around me but don't see them (I think you know what I mean) I am also seeing like shadows of animals that aren't there in like puppet on the wall type images and some do move. For instance one was on my sisters dresser drawer of a Horse that looked like it was fighting against the wind on the other side of a short fence and was fighting to get away with front legs up in the air trying to fight it off. Another was a dog who was trapped at the top of a slope on a dead end road, that was in distress trying to get away from something or someone and appeared to be barking (couldn't hear it) in defense. Anyway its almost always all Animals, Dogs, Cats, Wolves, Mice, Horses, Lions, Elephants ect. You name it I've probably seen or sensed it around me lately. I'm not sure what to make of this all since its only been in the past several weeks that its started happening. I am an animal lover and fight for their rights, and anyone who knows me know I have a strong attachment to animals and always have but this is a totally different experience and i'm not quite sure how to understand it or use it in anyway. Any advice would be great, Thanks:)

this only happened too me once and I was pretty high at the time but as a regular smoker of many years I know the difference between my imagination on drugs and coming in contact with something else. I was sitting around a fire at night with mates and saw as you said something moving in the corner of my vision. Usually I would attribute this typical eye shaddow corner thing to paranoia and disorientation of the interpreter. But this time what I saw were figures that appeared in numbers that lurked in the darkness. They seemed to be made out of somekind of dark energy almost like they were darker than the night that they came in. They took up all of the darkness that their was around us and the first bunch of figures fled like they usually do just in time that you only see a tiny bit of them but with every next one that tried to flee I saw more of each next one until I was looking right at some kind of humanoid figure. He looked almost suprised that I could see him but stayed there for a minute. When I tried to point them out to my mates their was only like a brief residue of them. They werent threatening actually quiet pleasant. It looked like they were having a party and watching us but there was some unearving feeling not quiet knowing what they were doing and why they don't make themselves seen more often.

Britanny, I too felt presences recently, which is why I am now posting on these sites for more info. I can relate to you in a way where I was a first witness to a tragic accident followed by my change in diet and other unworldly experiences. I think these kinds of encounter usually happens when you witness someone passing.

I began with a health condition which compelled me to consume, on average, 4 bulbs of garlic a week. I then remembered an overwhelming number of paranormal experiences in around my house and in my room during many nights, at that time. I ignored my Buddhist mother's advice not to eat so much garlic, especially at night.

Digging further, I had found that garlic unlocks your sixth sense and or attracts spirits and blocks your lower 3 chakras--these are side effects of garlic throwing off your energy balance. I know this sounds counter culture in terms of warding off evil spirits and vampires etc, but it is consistent with what Buddhists teach, from what I've found online, and what I've seen in my room--shadowy figures, sudden wakes during sleep, and sensations on my back.

My encounter has greatly subsided since I've abstained from consuming so much garlic. You can try for yourself to confirm. I will not speak for anyone, but this is what I've experienced, consistent with what I found to be true. I also want to note that I am a Christian. You can find more here:

Hi Brittany, I agree with girlygirl89, trust your instincts because 9 times out of 10 your instincts won't fail you. When I read your story, I got the same feeling about the dark shadow that "Bunnies" stated. I got the intense feeling that your brothers guide was standing sentry maybe because this other presence may have wanted to "mess around". Guides protect, enlighten, support etc. If you saw him and your brother sees him regularly... His guides are amazingly strong and aligned, Bless him because most of us work very hard to achieve this relationship. I have seen one of my Guides clearly once, then he went in to my bedroom where my Stepmother was, amazingly, she saw him clearly. As I said, you seem to posess some psychic qualities, this might be a good time to set yourself on a path to learn how to focus this unique characteristic so that it isn't so creepy. I know how scary it can be... I spent many years not able to sleep by myself because of my Empath characteristics running out of control. Once you have the information... It isn't so scary. Make sure you pray a whole lot, as well as talk to your Guides so they know how you feel about what is happening, and, how is affecting you, they will help. God Bless you, and, if you ever need to just vent how you feel, this seems to be a safe place. I feel like all are ready to help here.

Thanks a bunch! I'll keep that in mind! It seems so stupid of me to not think of it in that way. I guess it's just my mind not wanting to believe in that sort of stuff even though I know it's real (sciency tipe minds run in the family!). I'll definatly think that the next time something happens that would normaly freak me out! 😁 😊

Bunnies, my advice on how to stop being scared of them would be to just face the facts:

1) You know your going to see them and that they are going to come around you

2) You know they arent there to hurt you, if they were even capable of doing so... They would have done it already

3) You can't be scared of anything that isn't scared of you!

If they were scared of you then they wouldn't be coming around and letting you see them and know they're there right? Just relax, their people just like us its just that their circumstances are different!

Most people don't see their guardians! He's very lucky! I've seen a lot of stuff like that but I'm still scaired when it happens (sometimes). How do I stop myself from freaking out all the time? I don't really have any other good tips other than meditating because mine just sort of evolve on their own! Its quite cool, but I would like to try and make them better once one my own! 😊

Actually my brother does see his guide all the time, and he doesn't freak me out. Bunnies, its funny that you say that about the face because when that happened I got the most uneasy feelin like sumthin just wuznt right about that whole thing! The voices doesn't really freak me out either I just wish they would let me talk to them, but when I try they go away. None of it scares me at all, like I said I've been around paranormal things my whole life so there's no fear, more like an intense curiosity! I've been doing a lot of reading on here and I'm seeing a lot about meditating, I plan on trying that but any more tips would be helpful! Especially on how to better my abilities, for example any books that would help me would be much appreciated...

I had a dream about a ghost living in my house. Like when I've been in my house I have seen doors move, felt spirits touching me, seeing ghosts with my eyes, getting over people's thoughts and spirits thoughts, orbs, shadow images, plants moving, objects moving and rain drops coming from no where. I used to sit in the bathroom and see rain drops as if the room was outside in the rain well weird.

Hi there! I don't think you should worry about the things you see, but whatch out for that face you saw-i got a bit of a funny feeling about it when I read that part! (nothing bad, but keep a eye out) When you talk to them you need to be relaxed. Have something that is reaal precious to you with you so you feel safe, take a few deep breaths to relax, and say what you want to say. Start out with really simple questions to get them used to it, and then go on from that. I do think thet man you saw looking into your brothers room was his guide as you call him (I call them guardians), so let him get on with what he has to do and don't get in his way. Your brother will probably never see him like you with yours so don't worry about that! As for the animals, it may just be the spirits trying different things to get your attention! 😊

Hey its Brittany, I submitted this story before I had actually created an account. GirlyGirl I thank you for your input, the nature of the dreams tend to freak me out sometimes but as far as actually being "scared" by them... I don't find that I am. My family has always been surrounded by paranormal activity so it doesn't really scare me unless I really do get a negative vibe from it. The jacket incident in the story is a perfect example. As of lately, I've been hearing what sounds to be like thousand upon thousands of voices in my head and I live with severe headaches because of it and they get louder when I'm lay down to go to sleep. Also I'll hear music, but it sounds like something not of this world... Its sounds so "heavenly", that's the only way I know how to describe it. Its so packed full of emotion and its so perfect that I feel a sob welling up inside me everytime I hear it. These shadow images are also accompanied by little balls and "swooshes" of light. I would very much love for whoever it is to talk to me, and I often tell them so out loud... Maybe I'm not doing it right? Again feedback is much appreciated!

Hi Brittany, I think that you are a psychic and that your brother is too. Your ability is a gift and you should embrace it. I suggest you pay more attention to your dreams and see what they mean. Trust your instincts. Your dream was a warning and I hope that your brother is doing well after this incident. Also, do the shadows/spirits/ghosts you see try to communicate with you? If they don't harm you than don't be afraid.
I hope that this helps you.
