3 Year Old Seeing Shadow Figures


I hope I am putting this on the right forum, I don't typically share any experiences with others, just keep it to myself. Since I was a little girl I have seen shadowy figures (not always bad) as well as light figures and I gave up trying to explain these occurrences. The people in my life just assumed it was due to all the other bad I dealt with as a way to cope but I felt (and still feel) they were very much there. The reason I am doing this now is that my 3 year old daughter came to me yesterday and told me she saw shadow people a few times, one standing in my room. She informed me that the one in my room was talking and when my husband and I asked her what he said, she said she didn't know but it scared her. She also told me on another occasion of a fire shadow (I assume a burning figure) standing behind our car and he was the scariest. When I asked her if there was anything else about him I needed to know she said he wanted to hurt us. This one scared me because out of all of my experiences good and bad I never saw a burning figure. I only come here in hopes that someone else has a young child affected by these figures. I'm not sure if she gained these viewings from me or if its something more. All I know is that I want her to know I'm here for her unlike so many during my experiences. One other thing, I haven't done much research on the subject but I also have frequent premonitions (mostly small things) and out of body experiences and wasn't sure if these shadow figures are common with those abilities. I hope someone has had a similar experience and any insight on this would be appreciated.

I've been able to see and talk to spirits since I was a toddler. I was never afraid, instead welcomed them as friends. My parents would think they were imaginary but it never went away. I have also seen these shadow people. You don't necessarily have to be afraid of them though they do look scary. The way I've come to understand it is that spirits are composed of energy, vibrations. Those who have the slowest vibrations appear more solid and are usually people who died in extenuating or confusing circumstances and haven't been able to move on so they get attached to our world and their vibrations become slower than normal, like ours. Hence the shadow figures. I actually had an experience with a young boy who died in a fire. I could see the boy but my stepfather would see a dark shadow in the house following me around. These spirits are obsessed with living so they get the idea that they can steal your life but all I had to do to make him go away was imagine a fire and it would scare him away. Later I was taken to an elder more experienced medium because my stepdad kept seeing the dark shadow and he managed to cross it over to the correct dimension where the vibrations are in accordance with those of a spirit. Usually all they want is help. When I'd welcome them as friends with my childhood innocence they wouldn't hurt me and eventually found their own way. I also have spirit guides (guardians) that help me through. You should maybe get your child and yourself to contact these higher beings who can protect you and deal with the shadow figures without you having to intervene.

Hi again, Katatak13,

Simply asking dark entities to leave or banishing them from your home does not work. If you are at a bank and a bank robber shows up with a gun, if you ask him to leave do you really think he will?

We have also experienced those random bursts of anger that have no root cause. This is classic interference of the dark elements that like to influence us. They gain power from our negative energies, which is why they do this. That firey figure could also be a thought form. If you 'pour' salt on it does it go away? (From the first post I made.)

Two of my three daughters and I are very psychic and we have been dealing with these exact same issues as you for a while. It never really goes away, but with knowledge and the right tools, you can gain control of your lives and have a 'normal' life.

In my search to protect my family I found that there are a lot of things out there that simply did not have enough horsepower to clear anything. Again, your story is so similar to mine it is kind of amazing.

When I was 6 years old, I use to see silhouette figures taking form a human being, and bubbles going through walls in Antigua during a vacation stay with my mom and father. I believe it all.

I have two very psychic daughters and I know exactly what you are going through! I was psychic as a child and punished for it.

Here is what helped us. (And let me tell you, it seemed we were living a nightmare at times.) These beings do not always have our best interests in mind. Sending love and white light will not be enough unless you can do that 24/7. And how realistic is that?

Salt cleanses in all dimensions. Have your entire family visualize pouring down a rain of salt throughout your house/property.

Everything is energy/frequency. At night, use green light bulbs as this can create a barrier. It might make the neighbors talk. LOL

Burn Dragon Blood Resin, Frankinsence, and or Myhrr. No one ever asks why Christ was given gold, frankincense and myhrr.

This is a free prayer that really works:

Ouiji boards and Tarot cards are dangerous. I know many will disagree with me on this. If you need a divination tool such as these to 'communicate' with the other side, how do you REALLY know who you are talking to?

Helping parents like you is my mission. There are so many families like ours and so little resources. These are not 'gifts' this is hard work! We open gifts on Christmas and birthdays. LOL

Please reach out if you have any questions! Sincerely, Laura

I program most of my crystals for transmitting love only. I am a healer. But even I, after all of these years doing this, know that I need to protect others from my own crap. Lol. It helps to have pre-programmed helpers that will help filter out the bad. My son says that the cabinets where I keep my rocks are power places. This is what keeps my house safe for all of us. I don't even notice the energy in my room anymore. There are 6 selenite wands all around, a couple almost 2 inches in diameter. Yep - nice buzzing!

Drakeoreo, it blows me away that the earth can make clear rock, and purple rocks, and green... Anyway, I love selenite. Yes, the buzzing. My first piece opened my solar plexus. I can still feel the pull I felt 17 years ago. I still have that piece. Yes, rocks are like "salad for the soul". I like that. Sounds like a line from a song. LOL

I love my clear quarts spheres and wands. It is nice when someone else "gets it" about rocks!

We are lucky to have lots of tools to balance ourselves. 😆

Oh good thank you Lol! I drive my family & friends insane because I don't shut up. It is time for me to spare them and go online. + full moon right now HALLaa!

-Oh man the energy must be intense in your place. I held just one of those huge selenite pieces before, it was buzzing like crazy! I imagine all around a room must be pretty strong. Crystals certainly have useful properties & abilities, I compare them to fruits & veggies as they norish our physical body, crystals nourish the non-physical body. I also wondered before, "What if crystals are the physical crystalization of pure thoughts/feelings/concepts?"

I don't know lol

Drakoreo, you have a great way of laying it all out. I agree about the salt and tourmaline. I also keep several foot long lengths of selenite laid end to end around my bedroom, creating a kind of positive vortex. Negatives are not allowed to enter this.

I have out of body expiriences and I also know these figures. My very first was an encounter with one of these "shadow figures." I think they are some other dimensional being who are curious of people like us who have extra abilities, is it no surprise the gift has been passed down to your child.

For me I found them very scary, however, they disapeared shortly after I removed an ouji board from my room. I do not actually know if these two things were connected or not, but I haven't been visited since.

I recommend "smudging" your house while banishing out loud any unwanted beings ("you are no longer welcome here, you must leave imediately!) you can even just banish them out loud, and tell your daughter to do the same when ever spirits are troubling, this is very effective for atleast getting them to leave, our energy is much stronger than theirs.

You may also lightly salt entrances as well as windows with the intetion of keeping enties out, and unable to enter your home. I also recommend sleeping with black tourmaline under the pillow for protection (or draw a symbol of protection on a piece of paper)

You can always call on possitive, loving spirits/energies to protect & assist you. They are eager to help when invited. Unlike negative energies, positive energies thrive on giving energy & being helpful/loving, while negative thrive on being un-helpful/hateful & taking energy. There are other kinds as well but that seems to classify the two most common.

Also, if she draws any pictures of unwanted spirits, tell her to rip them up to get rid of them. This works wonders!

Katatak13, I concur with PathR. Confusion at death, or believe systems not adhered to can lead to confusion. Your expectations are very powerful and we create what we expect, depending on the power of that belief. Confusion can so easily be changed to fear, and into powerful things. But this means it can also be changed to positive things, very basically, like love. Have you or your family had more experiences since you published this?

This was an individual who died suddenly.
The flames depict the Flux which has been referred to as Hades. It is a compartment of sorts.

My eldest saw this of two friends in flames.

The young man who took my aughters seat and lived saw the two that died in flames constantly. That is another story.

The reason for the flames is at the point of exiting out at death. Their religious beliefs were not adhered to.
So they believed they would go there.

Separating fear from a Portal activity which shows a deceased human in that state would bring fear and feelings of evil.

Katatak13 May I ask if any of your acquaintances or family member died in an accident?

Some children, and adults, can see Angels and demons more than others. Maybe God permits this so that the family can start praying and asking for God's protection. It's like the mother who scares the child a bit: "If you don't listen, the boogyman's going to get you!" Does she hate the child by saying this? No! You can read a childrens' bible to a child before bed time, and talk to it about the Angels, that God sends them to protect us. Teach it to pray morning and night. Also, don't shout at the child just before bed time, or get into fights with your husband/wife in front of the child. Good luck. God bless.+

Tell your daughter its okay and not to fear them but to give them love I'll explain my reasoning.

The explanation is that spirits are energy and energy is transfered and the energy needs more energy to stay or it will just fade away so when this happens the spirit will lash out to get your fear as energy but the thing is the energy is feeding them and this is like food. Junk food (negative energy) makes you unhealthy (negitive), but health food (positive energy) makes the recover healthy (positive energy)

But anyways just be their for her and it will help her greatly and hope it helps!

Hi Katatak13, have you ever done a house cleansing? Simply google it. You are essentially asking anything negative to leave your home, allowing only positive growth promoting energies to remain. People often burn sage, sweetgrass or other incense to encourage them to leave.

Also, visualize yourself, each of your children, your house, etc all surrounded in healing, loving white light. Ask that nothing negative can come near you. Some people even put salt around the perimeter of their properties.

It sounds like you and your children are very open, psychicly. This will draw a lot of things to you, both positive and negative, hence the cleansing and protection. This is a start. I hope it helps.

Best to you and your children. Your openness is one of the greatest gifts you can give them, helping them be aware of, accept, and even develop their gifts.

I'm happy to be of any help.
The only things I have found so far about the fiery figure are related to jinns or demons.
Some visible figures want to bring no harm, but I imagine they could bring negative energy just as any other spirit might. The meditation could help you ride the home of this, or at least understand it and keep it at bay.
I am glad to hear that no physically threatening occurrences have followed your family. The spirits you have both seen probably mean no harm, because if they did they would likely have acted by now.
If I learn anything about the fiery threat I will share it with you.
Be safe.

Thank you Nightingale, your words mean a lot to me. As far as the figures affecting the physical world I have only noticed minor occurrences around our home its mostly just an extremely negative energy. Our house is very tense and I notice mostly with my children random bursts of anger or upset unrelated to the situations at those times. I think whatever these are have a tendency to pull a lot of energy from us physically and mentally. I agree that the fiery figure is most concerning, I had difficult time finding anything of interest on the subject but I too will be doing more research in that area. Thank you Anne as well I will be reading that very, very soon. I appreciate the feedback from you both.

Hello Katatak13,
You are already being supportive of her just by listening and taking herseriously. As you must be aware this alone will mean the world to her.
You have psychic abilities, and sometimes this can attract spirits to you. If your daughter has the same, and it sounds like she does, this would double the potential for spirits to feel drawn to you.
Try to notice patterns of when they appear.
If these appearances increase significantly, you may want to consider sleeping close together in order for you both to feel safer, until this is resolved. The firey figure is the most concerning. I will do some research and let you know if I find anything helpful.
Have either of you ever felt that a figure is solid or able to affect the physical world? Pay attention to any unusual occurrences around your home.
Be open with your daughter with all that you can about your own abilities. I would advise you to meditate regularly to increase your awareness of the spirits around you. This will help you gain control and decide whether it is safe to contact any of them. Try not to allow fear to pervade any contacts. Your peaceful energy may help. As your daughter ages, teach her what you do and continue to let her know that she is not alone. Eventually, you may want to show her this site.
You are both gifted and it is a gift for her to have you as her mother.
Trust in yourself and your daughter.
Be safe,
