Sensing Death/bad Things And Shadow People


For as long as I can remember I've always been able to sense when something bad is going to happen or when someone is going to die. My family has always just passed it off as women's intuition, but its more than that. I can meet someone and by shaking their hand I know whether they are good or bad.

And when I was very young, age 3, I told my grandfather he would die soon, he passed within a day. Since then, I have sensed the death of my husbands family members, my father, brother and even a few friends/acquaintances. I think, I'm not entirely sure, that I may have even helped my friend avoid a terrible accident.

Lately, when I get these feelings that something bad is going to happen, I begin feeling the usual unsettled feeling and who it concerns usually pops into my head. But lately its harder to get the image of whom its about. Does this mean I'm losing my gift?

And then there's the shadow standing by my bed. The dark shadowy figure that's at the edge of my vision. The shadow that holds me down, makes me feel as though I can't breathe. Shows me horrible things, and I can feel him watching me, draining me. What is this? I've always known there was someone there, but now it feels threatening. But just this one shadow, the one that lurks, just at the edge of my vision.

Can anyone give me guidance? Help me figure out what this all is? My mother just wants me to pray it away. But I don't want to lose this gift, it doesn't feel wrong, I just don't know how to control it or fine tune it. Is it possible to learn that? Am I too old to learn how? I just need some kind of direction/guidance with all of this. Please.

Any help/insight/guidance is appreciated.

I'm not sure this will help, but I'd imagine at least part of your problem is that you consider death to be a negative thing. Death isn't bad. Death needs to exist for life to exist. Death is needed for changes to happen. Sometimes people need to die to make way for others.

Sure, some deaths are traumatic and leave a void in people's hearts, but that too can be something that brings about necessary growth.

I think it's telling that your vision was clearer when you were younger because death was still an abstract concept to you. You didn't know how much it is feared or how tragic it can be for people. I think your challenge would be to once again get yourself to think of death like a little child.

Good luck anyways and thanks for sharing ❤

There's a couple ways to strengthen abilities, that I know of. You should focus on meditation/grounding. As you absorb energy and expel any negative energy, it can help boost your abilities. Sometimes power spells can help temporarily (by charging them first). Watching what you eat helps, and trying to practice definitely does too. However, I haven't quite mastered how to boost my abilities, either.
Also, I know some people claimed to build a tolerance to caffeine to where it doesn't dampen their abilities. Everyone's different.
Sorry I can't tell you how to boost your abilities though! I also know that an illness will dampen your abilities, such as having the flu. I've also have had a chronic illness for seven years, but for the past two or three years my abilities stopped working at once (except for one ability that is very dull). I'm trying to figure out what is wrong so when I find a treatment plan that works, I can also get my abilities back...hopefully. I feel foreign without them!
Anyway, good luck!

Toxxicwishes71, Thank you for your response. A lot of what you said makes sense to me. Do you know if there is a way to strengthen these abilities? Also, I didn't know that caffeine would dampen my abilities. I will have to cut that out of my diet. Again, thank you for the advice on how to help/save people. I have been keeping a close eye on my friend for the past year as well. It can be exhausting sometimes.

Hi, SusanLM!
I know exactly what you are growing through.
Ever sense I was a kid, I have been able to sense pretty much anything negative. I can tell when someone is just "bad", when someone is going to get hurt, when something bad is going to happen, and I can even tell if It will be the last time I see someone (ever, or in a long time). But, most of all, I have the ability to know when someone is going to die - and often how. However, unlike you, I am given about 5 days and 23 hours in advance (estimated time for most of the ones I predicted).
There are multiple types of "Shadow people", and given what you are telling me it seems you may be experiencing two types.
For me, when I know when someone is going to die, I get a strong feeling, sometimes hear a voice, and often see a shadow person lurking by the person who has a week to live. When I was seven, I was leaving my dad's house when a shadow person leaned into me from behind, and whispered in my ear and said, "Tell your dad you love him. It's the last time you will see him." What was weird was, I actually FELT hot air, as if it was actually someone's breath. I even pictured how this woman looked like (sometimes It seemed like she was pale and grey, but she looked beautiful nonetheless). Every time, I automatically thought of her as "death". To other people, this spiritual being would make people afraid and get a bad feeling. For me, It was as if I knew who she was, and I even chose a name "Kelly".
I told my dad I loved him, and a week later he died of a heart attack. Ever sense then, I still would get similar experiences, even if they weren't as strong.

But, there is a different type of shadow person, too. What most people would refer to as "demons", these spiritual beings are able to make themselves look like someone else, dress somehow else, and often it seems they TRY to look as terrifying as possible. In my case, this shadow person visiting me by looking like Kelly.
But, she wasn't Kelly. At least, I'm pretty certain she wasn't.
It's important to know, though, that these "demons" are able to induce fear and thoughts of suicide. No, not by "looking terrifying", but actually INDUCE fear - almost like their energy pierces your energy field and manipulates it.
Praying a demon away never worked (at least, not in my case or anyone that I know of), but how to make them go away is fairly simple.
You just have to stand your ground. You have to tell yourself you are NOT scared, and you have to ORDER them to leave your home and to never see YOU again. Don't half-a** it either. Actually BELIEVE.

I have also noticed that these "demonic beings" or evil shadow people follow people with abilities of any kinds, and the theory is that they somehow feed off of our energy. I don't know if that's true, because they can induce fear and depression. Depression/thoughts of suicide dampens your psychic abilities, (often along with caffeine, drugs, fear, and certain other stuff). Fear fuels these beings, but I'm not sure if our energy does. -shrugs- I just know they follow psychics, mediums, and so on all the time.

Anyway, I hope this helped. I am glad you were able to save your friend! Because I am given a week-notice on someone's death, it makes it a little difficult to find out the exact 'When', and sometimes the 'how' gets lost in translation or even changes. But, it is important to know that HOW you save someone is important. I once saved a family member from dying, and kept it up for a year. She ended up having a more painful death then she would have originally. This case might be different though - she was old and had cancer, and it wasn't until I had a period where my abilities stopped working (due to depression I think) did she pass away.
But, I believe if you save someone from death physically (say, making sure they didn't get in a car when they were supposed to die in a car crash), things might be different. I still am learning all the "rules", I guess.

I hope I helped. Sorry this was terribly long! If you ever have any other questions or want to share experiences, feel free to message me!
