Shadow People? Maybe Not? Solid Dark Figures


I don't know much about my history, but I have hear a few different things over the years. My father has a foresight sort of ability. His mother was apparently a witch goddess to some tribe which she visited on her travels. And I am born exactly 100 years to the date from my great grandfather. Could quite possibly mean nothing but there is something there I believe.

I have been seeing a black hooded figure for say the last fifteen years. He or it has always been there watching me or something. It is not something I am worried about, He appears to just watch. I can feel someone watching me and I look he is there for a split second then vanishes. He always is behind something, Usually a tree a door/wall. No one else can see him, but he appears at all sorts of times just randomly. At present I have not seen him since just before Christmas 2015. So he appears anywhere as well, I could be at work, (I work everywhere I am a concretor) or home even at friend's houses. For a long time I have known he was there but I never talked to him before until about a year ago. I will get to that. So he is always behind something sorta poking half his body out from around anything. But last year just before Christmas was the last time I saw him. Instead of being behind something he appeared in full shape, and it was continual, in about an hour he revealed himself about 8 times and was in the middle of the shed garage door opening. When I say continual I mean constantly. Over all the years that have passed he has never been so abrupt in his appearances. I don't really know when he appears but sometimes I see him a few times a week and then sometimes I won't see him for like 6 months. I don't really know what to think, why would he change from hiding to plain sight after all these years. It is not something I am afraid of I haven't really been concerned I am still not really concerned just a lot more curious now that its changed. I have always sorta got feelings about places and certain people where you just can't put your finger on it. For as long as I remember just random things have happened around me. I was thinking some sort of magnetic thing I don't know just random. Taps running, lights turning on and off. T.Vs randomly turning on then off. I know something is there.

Ok so early last year I finally decided to talk to it not face to face but just out aloud, I could feel a strong presence around. I pretty much just told him to reveal himself I know hes there, so just do it, what do you want? Just reveal yourself. Some other stuff probably too was awhile back but along those lines. Then I went to bed. Well not bed but the couch at the time I was staying at mum and dads downstairs. Old Queenslander type house. Anyway I woke up normalish time in the morning say 6am and to my dismay I guess he revealed himself alright. My fish tank was drained leaving about 2-3 inches in it just enough for my fish, and the down stairs area where I was sleeping was covered in mud. There was something else that happened at this particular time but I cannot remember: (

Does anyone know anything of the sort happening? What exactly is it what does it want? I was thinking he is just sitting waiting for me to do (something) which I am unaware of present. I have told people about this before but mostly just kept to my self. Although the people I have told when I bring it up it appears they don't really remember me telling them. I don't know could be just them but thought I would add this.

Thank you for letting me post hopefully I can find out what's going on.

My last shadow experience terrified me. I used to see it fairly often as a small child, but I attributed it to bad dreams. I hadn't seen it again until recently. About a month ago.

Mine however has never been hooded. Its emaciated in frame, not skeletal. The shadow is barely smokey. Like an unfocused camera. It is human in form but kind of skitters, between four legged and hunched running. It feels like a thousand pounds of dread weighing me down.

I was driving to work (I work 4am-1pm's), down our pitch black country highway. Brights on because deer are a bid problem that early. I was slowed down to pass a field where I could see a few deer close to the road. I saw something out of the corner my eye and stomped the brakes, thinking it was a deer.

It was the shadow. It slowed down, in front of my Brights. The Brights lit it's face, and I knew it was looking at me. It wasn't totally solid, my lights passed through it. It suddenly darted to my right, out of my lights and sight. I was physically shaking and panicking as I sped the rest of the way to work.

I felt it near me for hours afterwards. And since, I have seen it one other time. Only in my peripheral, while walking one morning. Mine certainly does not feel neutral.

That sounds like the same figure I just started seeing. He appeared to me last night, dark and hooded like you described. But he seemed much more aggressive, it wasn't some calm watching scenario. He appeared less than a foot from me and stayed there until I blinked. He also appeared at the foot of my bed.

mibbi, I've heard about a figure like this once in my family, and his sighting by my uncle saved my uncle's life. It is a story that seems like a made up tale, but my aunt confirmed it which gave it credibility to me.

Apparently, quite a few years ago, my aunt and uncle were traveling across country by airplane to visit their daughter, soninlaw, and grandchildren. They had a connection on their last leg of their trip and as they were getting on the plane, my uncle saw a man just like you describe, in the plane. My uncle got uneasy and told my aunt that he wanted them to get off the plane and take a different flight. She agreed, and after they got off, he told her that dark figure/man seemed like death to him and he urgently had the feeling that they should leave.

The plane they got off of went on and crashed. I believe there were no survivors. My aunt completely confirms my uncle's story, but says she didn't see the dark man herself.

I think my uncle was given the choice through his interpretation of the purpose of this person, and had the strength to follow his instincts.

This is probably accurately called a Shadow Person. A pretty powerful one if it was capable of causing so much physical disturbances. At worse a weak demon. However, shadow people are generally not harmful. Key word, generally. However, they are more powerful than spirits and are never completely good, in fact the tend to be either neutral or bad. It is definitely something you should keep an eye on. It seems to me originally he was just interested in watching you. However sociologically his sudden and intense intrigue with you seems to to indicate that he may want something from you, or be trying to tell/warn you of something. The fact that when you confronted him he drained your tank, may suggest an inner turmoil (or worse case scenario, he is bad). He may have superiors (more powerful entities) that want him to do to something with/to you, that isn't good or for your benefit. When he lashed out it seemed out of insecurity. Hopefully this helps, if I don't respond quickly here feel free to email me at hecatesmagicspell [at]

My own experiences with these shadows are intense. At times I have saw multiple ones. I am following your post because I too wish I had answers. I am nervous bc I do not know if they mean harm or good. To start with I believed we were being followed and spied on like it was humans but then I'm like no way I'm not famous or rich if someone wanted to do something to us they would have already made a move. I went through countless sleepless nights because no one else is seeing the things I do. I have had numerous weird experiences since I was a teenager but this with the shadows is only 3 years in. It started after one extreme experience I had amd wondering if I am attracting this now bc of my experience. I have always had like a sixth sense to feel things and know things before I am told. Confused as you but completely I feel for you too. Good luck in finding answers.

Hello Mibbi, first of all, you are not the only one who's looking for answers about this shadowy figure. I started seeing this shadowy figure when I was in 3rd grade and I was terrified! To make it short, I always see it for the past years not until after I decided to close the channel. I learned that I have a special gift over the years. It was scary at first but I tried to ignore it, I give the energy that I am not afraid anymore. I am now married but I still see this figure every month or so, but doesn't harm or give me a bad feeling anymore. Back in the days when I was still single, every time someone hurts me, guess what? Something happens to them. And now, that I have my family, this figure stays in my life. This figure feels like protecting me in some ways. I guess not all dark figures are bad after all. As a joke when I was younger we gave him a name "Michael, for Michael Jordan!" So don't be afraid, pray for him too to see the light. Or pray that he won't harm you.

Demons roam the earth and sometimes they like to stick to one person. Most of the time if not all, demons are there to pursuade you to do bad. If you ignore those temptations it gives you, it mau end up giving up.
Take care

mibbi, I've seen shadow people before, they taunt me constantly. I've been seeing a black hooded figure for about three years now. And electronics are always weird around me like they randomly break and shut off.

I think it's a demon that's around us, a certain type of demon.
