Dark Shadow Figures In My Adolescence


When I was younger I used to see shadowy figures all the time after dark. It was usually after a shift at work, driving home, or some other time when no one else was around. I was 16.

The figures were all very different, some seemed female others male, some seemed sad. It was all very weird. Yet almost all of them appeared to me as black, shadowy, humanish figures.

At first I passed them off as hallucinations because I was scared, but I could definitely just feel on a deeper level that they were much more than that. The figures kept appearing more and more often and closer to me. It got really scary for me as they began to appear more frequently at night and I couldn't sleep. These ones seemed to be male, and more frequently they seemed so evil, full of hatred for my existence and they wanted to hurt me, to kill me.

Not knowing what to do, I went to my mother. She revealed to me she had similar experiences when she was my age. She told me to banish them, with my arm to the square. I did this one night because I was scared. The spirits were so malevolent.

I haven't seen any spirits, but I can still feel them now and then. Sometimes I'm glad that I can't see them, other times I have a strange longing for them in my life again. I also have a feeling that if I really wanted to, I could call them all back into my life, if that makes sense.

A few other things. Mostly the figures were shadows, but sometimes they were naked and fleshy if that makes sense. These ones didn't feel evil, but just like they wanted to be feared. Sometimes I could feel them smiling at me. I have also had many people close to me die, but before they did I could always feel it was going to happen. I also am very in tune with the emotions of people close to me, I know when somethings wrong, or if somethings on their mind, or if they're lying to me.

Anyways did I do the right thing? Any advice for me? I'm very new to all this and it still is weird to me. Any help would be much appreciated.

I have had the same experience, but I was kind of hesitant because I did not want to publish the story if some thought of it as a ghost story. Shadow people certainly are not ghosts. I encountered a shadow person with a top hat, white holes as eyes and a very long white grin (a grin like the Cheshire cat would have). Also shadow people are not like our shadows. They are entities that are made up of the most vivid essence of darkness to the point that a darkened room would not be dark compared to them. They are definitely 3d and are not 2d much like the shadows objects give off. I wrote this story on another site. I will try to give you as much information as I can.

I used to see figured that looked like 3d shadows as well when I was just a kid. I remember seeing them walk around my room when I was supposed to be a sleep but of corse being a little kid it scared me. I do remember one stopping and looking at me it was as if I could feel their thoughts it seemed he was surprised and shocked I could see him.

I haven't seen them in s long time though. I saw another at 14 and another at I believe 21 the last I saw one was in the home I live in now they peeked around my fridge

I do believe you when you say you saw them as for if you should see them again or not. You choose what you want, what you want is best for you.

I personally am happy I don't see them any more though I do practice being s medium so I am able to communicate with those past on (it's nothing like the movies though)

I to for the most part know when some one is lieing to me (very handy gift as it makes life so much more peacful avoiding liers... Though a few slip under my rador you could say)

I've heard that is s psychic gift for some, as well as being one of gifts of a a psychic ability known as empath. You might want to studied on it a bit you might find it relatable (if not that is alright may you find what your looking for on your journey... Good luck 😉 😊)

Ive only seen one shadow person in my life, but I actually have been wanting it to happen again. My experience was not scary, but my fight or flight kicked in and afterwards I convinced myself that it was scary and I think this is why I haven't seen anymore. It's an unfortunate truth that the walls are much easier to build than to tear down, no matter how hard I've been trying.

What happened to me was I had just laid down to sleep, and felt someone tickling my feet. I looked up and there was someone at the end of my bed, but it was dark enough that I thought it was a family member messing with me. The person then moved and sat on my bed, and had a very feminine quality to it. I reached up to flick on the light and there was no one there. That's when I got scared haha.
