The Shadows


I have had many experiences with what I believe are shadow people. The 1st one I can remember was when I was about 9 years old. I was in my room I shared with my sister. It was around 2:00 a.m. (I remember looking at the clock.) and my eyes felt like they were rolling in their sockets. Then I saw this huge shadow figure at the foot of my bed. Then I saw one floating around in the air. I didn't know what to do so I closed my eyes and all I saw were amber letters I couldn't understand.

Then I opened my eyes again and shadow figure at the foot of my bed looked like it was trying to pull my mattress towards it. I felt it pulling me but I wasn't really moving. I closed my eyes again and started praying, only opening my eyes every 10 minute or so to see if the shadows were still there, they always were. I was lucky my mom gets up at 5:30 a.m. to go to her job. When my mom turned on the lights outside of my room the shadows disappeared. I was shaking and so was my dog lying on the side of my bed. I can assure you this was not a lucid dream.

I haven't had a overly scary experience like that since then; a few minor things happen to me almost every day though. Like when I'm in my room at night it seems like the shadows move around. In one corner where I see a moving shadow almost every night it feels like someone is watching me from that area. It's not just in my room though, I see shadows moving almost every where I go. Sometimes I think my eyes are playing tricks on me, or that I might be going crazy.

They have become normal to me now, most of them don't even seem negative. They kind of remind me of commuters trying to make their way through our world. Can someone please explain to me what these creatures are, and why only I and animals notice them? Also could I be a medium?

Ok I'm new to this site and I know this seems to be an old post but if someone is still watching this tory I have some advice. I have a friend that talked about things similar to this.

She is more clairvoyant than I am but she showed me these "shadows" before. She sees them as cloaked figure whereas I only see the shawdow if that. I mostly saw when they moved because I noticed that is got darker or lighter in the areas they moved to/ away from. I believe everyone has/had the ability to be a medium we simply use it or lose it, or in my case "grew up" though I am currently trieing to reverse this.

The shadow do seem to only follow certain people though. You just seem interesting to them. If they are more on the mean side they fry to scare you and feed off your fear. But most of the time they just sit in the corner and glare lol.

You did the right thing to pray but what you also need to do is stand up to them and tell to go away and tell them who's boss. And agian there are those that don't bother you and you can try talking to them if you want.

Oceangirl You definitly have a gift as some call it. But these things play many games. And although they are everywhere to see them like you do emans they mut be attracted to you or something around you. They all are makings themselves known even if you don't think so. Many of these shadows don't act like us or ghost. And I can tell you I have seen many myself, everything from in the corner of my eye, to walking near me, to right in the room staring me down in a solid black smoke. I know some friends and fam who have seen them as well. A few up close also. And I also see things in many places. I have experience some insane stuff. If some of my people hadnt seen or heard things also I would think I was nuts. Always stay cool and try not to be afraid. I'm sure in the future you will need this, and to prey. Never breakdown or give up. I have been seriouly confronted by some freaky stuff. Hold it together, prey and run if you have too, I hate to tell you this but it sounds like you see the negative side as I do. There are many pics of these shadows on the net. Learn don't fear.

I have seen shadows that appear to frighten on purpose, and I have experienced demonic activity where no shadow people were seen. And it is hard to know what's what. All demons seem to bring a dread or evil presence and or very imposing and domonating. And those don't go away easily. Unles god is on your side, sin and being drunk or druged out,"not saying I'm perfect" red flags them in your direction, espcialy psychics. I don't know much about this whole thing other than many, many experiences and a few stories from close friends, they seem to bother good people or innocent, and people who are into bad things. SPEAKING of not knowing what's what shadow and so on. I now am experiencing a presence that I can not fully sense what it is, where it is
Why it is here. ONLY STANGE CONFUSION AND WEIRD THOUGHS. It has made strange sounds that have freked us out. I Have experienced proboly almost a hundred weird events since 9, But nothing has confused me like this, it like looking in the jungle for someone in camelfloge. I can't realy feel it, just weird flashes. Any Ideas anyone.

hi Eradicator that's interesting. Just don't worry shouldn't show up again. The ones I see only turn up once then don't see them again.

My sister was asleep, and I don't see shadow creatures outside in the daylight. I see them mainly in dark places

I thought dark shadows like that were demons but I probably watch too much tv 😜

The shadows are bad and feel evil to me. I have seen many. They are negative and are dangerous. Especialy ones that are big, or look like big animal hybrids. I have seen them right in front of me and they have no message, just a mission of evil.

hi Eradicator maybe your house is haunted. I saw a black figure but it fly across my room. So I started to ignore it and pretend I never saw it. They must be creatures or something. Then it started poking down my ear which got annoying then went. That is the only time I saw a black figure. When I see ghosts they look real and they are so clear. You can see there clothes, faces and that.

WOW Katie you really see, hear or feel spirits?
I believe I have seen something before, but only once. Ill tell you the story as I'm home alone at the moment;D
Well one Saturday evening after eating dinner, I came up stairs to enter my room, however as I was walking up I saw a Black figure (quite small) standing or hovering next to another room (I saw this figure as I was looking down the hall way). Well - at that time I didn't think anything of it, I onyl saw a quick second of it but there was something there.
Anyway, I walked into my room, and turned my lights on (you get the click from the light switch) anyway just as I turned mine on, then I heared the room the light switch next room to mine turn on. Again for some strange reason I didn't think anything of it, but about half an hour later I got up and walked in that direction to another room, and the lights in the room opposite to me were turned on (orginaly before I cam up they were off) - no one was up there, or had been up there - now can someone explain that?

Mental Mediums: Mental phenomena is demonstrated through the mind of a medium. Mediums identify three forms of mental mediumship:

1. CLAIRVOYANCE when mediums see the spirit
2. CLAIRAUDIENCE when mediums hear the spirit
3. CLAIRSENTIENCE when mediums senses the presence and the thoughts of the spirit.

should also be noted that a psychic is able to "sense" on a purely material level and not able to "tune in" to the spirit world, except by accident. All mediums are psychics but not all psychics are mediums. Tarot cards, runes, palmistry etc. Are all tools that can be used in conjunction with this natural ability. There are many exercises that can be done to increase the natural psychic ability of everyone.

When I visit the spirit world I don't mean too. It just happens. My dreams get controlled. I never can pick my own dreams or dream about what I want to dream about.

I enjoyed reading your story. I've only seen shadows as shapes so I think the ones I used to see were a symbol of something or something to do with the spirit world maybe. I wouldn't say your a medium because all you see are shadows. Of course your going to feel watched because shadows are following you. Make sure these shadows or not objects because you could be getting confused with object shadows because they move out of place depending if the sun is shining on them.

If you see shadows in the dark then they must be spirits. I wouldn't say your a medium because there are loads of people out there who experience this as well.

Medium have a special gift and powerful one. That what I would say.

I might be a psychic medium but I don't really know the meaning of one. What abilities they have. I think they get messages of spirits and pass them on.
