Shadow Randomly Pops Up


I have no clue how this works but I'd really like help. It's weird. I see this shadow. I think it's just one. It's the same shape each time. Sometimes, it's fleeting and it just passes by. Other times, I just see him standing there. I was walking past my math class and I peeked inside to see if anyone was in there and I saw him. I'm terrified. I want to name him in the hopes that it'll make him less scary.

But that's only if he doesn't have a real name. I'm scared that he's real. Not just me seeing random shadows and stuff. It's not like a shadow on the wall. He's like us, but a shadow. I can't hear him either, if he's trying to talk to me. I just see him. I don't know if I'd be more scared if I can hear him. I don't know.

I'm religious so ouija boards are not my thing. I don't know if I can pray him away.

Honestly, I'm sort of scared that it's my grandpa. He died when I was in 6th grade and I was really close to him. I was apparently his favorite. What if he needs my help or something? I feel like I sound insane. I mean, if it was really my grandpa, he wouldn't be a shadow right? He'd show himself to me?

I don't know how any of this works but I'd really like help. I'm scared that maybe this shadow isn't benevolent and that terrifies me. I watch too many horror movies to just brush him off. Can someone just please let me know what's happening? Unless it's a demon. I don't know. Do I really want to know if it's a demon? What do I do if he is? I'm scared. I don't know if I want to communicate with him honestly.

I am new here. Hello! Shadow... I can not see them but they are nearby. My granddaughter actually can see them and knows what they are doing. She is gifted with that sight. I can clear, calm, soothe, recycle, rectify the shadows. I almost consider them, extreme emotion pools. Please this is how I describe for me, everyone has to explain things in a way they understand so please I am not judging or trying to make someone see it my way. We are all gifted and we need to work together to make this a better time in history. 😊 I find strong emotions good and bad leave this big emotion smudge, its rather brainless but confused and has some leftover of the person who experienced it. I just accept it unconditionally I do not name it, I do not fixate on what it might be, I just accept and love and pat like a mother with a newborn and it just dissipates. I am strongly gifted however. It can be mischievous and obnoxious like children if it is not getting attention. It mostly wants to know its ok now. Do not deal with anything at any time that you feel is not for you. Our best hope is to educate ourselves to understand as much as they are trying to relay to us. Everyone here is right on the money except Seawitch who is rejecting a spirit that she feels was malevolent towards her and it is trying to make amends.

Hi ixamxm, I was followed by a shadowman as a child. Fortunately, I was with my family at the time and my parents believed that something had frightened me. They made us wash our feet in a cleansing ritual when we came home to prevent anything that may have followed us. Then they burned frankincense to provide us with further protection.

Shadow people could be spirits who lack sufficient energy to fully manifest. You must not give in to fear because they will feed off your negative energies. Take comfort in your religious belief. It will provide you in the strength you need. You've right to stay away from Ouija boards - they'll only make things more complicated.

I've attached an article on shadow people for your reference:

Be at Peace and stay Safe. My well wishes are with you.

This post is directed at you. A long time ago I listed you as one of my favorite posters. The reason is I knew back then that you were being truthful about your experiences. You set up the exact example of what I have seen play out many many times. For some reason many kids have done this exact thing. I have spent years dealing with the fallout from this sort of thing.

ixamxm, Now this is for you. D not trust the shadow figures that you come in contact with. Many times they will try to convince you of something to instill fear and anxiety. These beings feed on those emotions and energies.

You need to protect yourself spiritually and mentally. If you see one go with your gut and act accordingly. If it does not bother you or make you feel frightened just pay no attention to it. Go about your life and don't get worked up about it. If it or they come more frequently, jump on here and I am sure people will try to help.

Remember that you can always go to peoples profile pages and read other older posts that might help inform you. 😉

Firstly, the member called seawitch's comment is wrong, on so many levels.
Shadow beings do exist and they're evil all of them.

It is possible for a human spirit that was in life an evily mean and negative person to present as a dark/black mist, shadow or form of a person that's made up of darkness.
To get rid of it, you will need a priest,preacher,rabbi or someone that knows about these things. What I can tell you to hopefully stay safe is to memorize Saint Michael's prayer.
You can google it. Remember it by heart and say over and over when thatcthing is present whether you see it or just feel a negative and scary feeling come over you. Best of luck.

Hi there, ixamxm.

I don't know much about spirits, but maybe I can help you pinpoint what this could be. First of all, I feel that your grandfather comes to check up on you to make sure you're okay. Sometimes my mom comes to check up on me and make sure I'm doing well and she passed away in 2006. I don't believe we completely lose the ones we love. They're just in a better place and can come and visit us and check up on us at times.

Second, does this shadow feel evil? Or does it feel like your grandfather's presence? If it feels evil and demonic, maybe you can get something to protect yourself from it like a cross or holy water. Don't worry and don't be scared. You're going to be just fine.

Take care and much love goes out to you.
