Real Psychic Experiences

Different Types Of Shadow People


I thought I would quickly write down some of the experiences I have had, and hopefully someone can give me some info as I can't find anything reasonable any where else.

Since I was a young teenager I have been seeing shadow figures out of the corner of my eye. When I see them they hide by running into another room or object. I didn't really pay much attention as I wasn't sure what I was seeing. Last year I moved into a new flat, I am over 30 now, and started seeing these shadow people again, but this time from front on, both during the day and night. I also experience what I call a solid black figure which moves very slowly. One of them appeared behind my car while I was busy cleaning it during the day. It moved across my line of vision and then turned to look at me, then disappeared. I looked around and there was no one.

I also see dark wispy shadow figures which move disjointedly. They seem to be smaller. I would like to point out that I see these things in various places and people's houses, but not all the time.

I would like to mention that sometimes I feel a presence in my bedroom during the night, and have woken up at 3 a.m. On several occasions with a feeling of dread or fear.

Can someone let me know if they have had similar experiences?

I see the shadows at night swarming around my bedroom. One night what I can only describe as a nest of shadow snakes seemed to be fixed to the ceiling. The other shadows get in my face. I don't know what they want, and I used to fear them, but I know that fear is something we create when we don't understand. The first step to understanding is letting go of your fear. They can't hurt you unless you allow them to.

Use chi blast to get rid of them. To do this, just imagine psi energy collecting in your palms, then direct it at the shadows - it'll get rid of them fast.

You could also make or buy a wand to fight them off - these things are after your life energy, and often take it while you sleep.

I wasn't aware that they bit people, but I do often feel (and sometimes see) them crawling all over my arms and face. Are they attracted to human skin or something? If so, why?

I see the shadows all the time. I only can see them when it's dark though, like they shy away from the light, but I can feel there presence in the light.

Has anyone ever seen bug like beings that look like fairies flying around at night? They look like a cross between a butterfly and a catapiller. I believe they are inter-dimensional beings because I can wave my hand right through them as if they weren't there.

I've been seeing these types of things at night for about a year and a half now. Usually they are in the form of white outlines, like the photos of where bodies were at a crime scene. One night I woke up and lying next to me was the outline of a woman, lying on her side facing away from me. She stayed in view for about a minute. I managed to compose myself and ask her who she was and what she wanted, but she didn't answer. Later that same night, I seen a little girl materialize before me to the side of my bed, she wore a red hooded jacket and I could see her long brown hair coming out from underneath her hood.

isisevangeline, thank you for your reply. It lead me to remember that the dark disjointed ones are always moving straight towards me, where as the others seem to move away and hide. Thanks. 😁

It means that I also am seeing shadow people. They hate light that is correct. Good day =)

Sorry epoy1984 don't mean to criticize I'd have to say yes on the some of them once being humans who lost their humanity part but no on the angels part. Its more that they were in the fallen angels category.
I'm not certain praying would do much since some feed off emotions while others feed off of the idea of faiths miracles. The energy form it.
You've got to remember that most negativity that creates such shadows and things of beyond that are negative were because of the sense of ill thoughts multiplied that formed from that impurity and gave themselves form from idea to willfullness.

Well if I'm right about the ones they are. Please understand I'd just like you to be cautious I'm not trying to scare you, just allowing you to be alerted by it.
The disjointed ones if I'm right through their shadow if you get too close can actually grab your shadow and paralyze you from moving on the spot and they try to do something negative to you.
I was lucky not to find out what exactly. But it gave me shivers when I sensed what they probably could do.

Epoy1984 what exactly do you mean by being a witness? A witness to what? Thanks. 😁

Yes Aberdeen you are right. I read from the internet that shadow people are not aliens or demons instead they are once living humans like us who are now unclean spirits or angels. They just not found the light for they are trap into the world because of sin. We must offer prayers for them so they can abstain from their sins. And also you are right there Aberdeen they need prayers. In addition to, you are also a witness like me. Thank you for reading my story good day and god bless 😁 😉 ❤

Epoy1984 I read your story as promised. Your abilities are impressive if not a bit scary. I too believe in angels and demons, but I am still confused as to what exactly are the things that I see.

I saw some shadow figures in my apt., again tonight. I don't see any human feautures or form. I basically turn around or look to the side... And wow, are they fast! Quickly swim/fly right out of view.
I have my theories about why they could be here,,, but no certainty on it? Maria, I hope you find comfort in knowing you can call on God/Jesus to help you. And I also hope you find solace in knowing it is not just happening to you. I am praying almost hourly, and watching Christian (positive) sermons and music. That seems to be helping keep my positive energy up. I am sure they will/can not pysically hurt you. Are they sometimes black or grey in color... The shadows?
Take care, Maria. 😊

P.S. Who is David?...maybe I am wrong to ask, just a feeling and am trying to go with this...

The first ones you mention, sorry, there's just a few too many that it could be. It might be just a regular Darkling.
But the disjointed small ones I'd be wary of those ones. Those ones aren't good. They used to remind me of thrush bushes if you get too close, you'll get caught.

Hi Aberdeen,

You are not alone, I think a lot of of people are seeing these things and they are afraid to tell anyone about it. I was eight when I had my first encounter, there were three of them they used to hoist themselves up on my dresser and jump back down like they were playing a game. I call them shadow shortie's. Now eight years ago I came in contact with a yellow eyed one that sent shivers down my back, he was very thin and swaying from side to side, I sat up in bed and shouted at him to leave and he said no! The things can talk > so I repeated out loud in Jesus name go back from where you came from. The shape started to shrink in size as it was screaming out a long dragged out Noooooo. Shrinking down to the size of a pea, white in color and poof it was gone. Take care

I have always seen these kind of shadows too since I was a kid but I don't know what to do about them. They never did anything to me but I would love to know what they are and if they are good or not. I feel a presence too but only at my aunt's house and at the same part of the house so I avoid going there. What do these people want? What can I do?

Benji, I am a 39 year old indigo, and I started seeing shadow people in the last 10 years. I would see demons or spirits of ones that had passed on. Times are changing and they are coming out more and more, pay attention and you will understand. My fathers' family was plagued with the man in black. No features, just stood there looking and laughing.
What they are looking or waiting for, I don't know.

Im a bit concerned about calling myself a psychic as my understaning of one is someone like Alison from the tv show Medium, although my aunt regulary sees spirits. Maybe I just havnt tapped into properly, any suggestions?

Like arken_heart said, they are especially drawn to psychics, especially indigo children. Being one myself,
I've had a bit of experiences with them. They have auras, like us, (you can see it in the color of their gaze) and act particularly aggressive to people of the same aura type. Generally, putting up a psi shield will help a lot, unless it's an indigo shadow. (they are much more powerful than normal ones, similar to indigo children's powers). If youbfind an indigo one, get a psychic and/or close your third eye chakra. Some shadows are really not that aggressive, though. Don't mind them, just try to ignore them (definately don't make them mad, though...). Most people will stop seeing them after about age fifty. (Unless you are an indigo or crystal.).

This has been happening to me for a year (that I have been paying attention to them at least) and it is still going on right now, I am currently helping a spirit haunting a movie theater and there are a few shadow creatures (I call them darklings). But yes there are different types, I have seen animal-like, standing/humanoid-animal types, inky ones, and some that are in the form of a person. They appear quite often around me too. The best I can tell for protection is to envision a barrier of pure light around you. But I have usually noticed they are drawn to psychics, do you have any abilities?

A couple years ago I was playing man hunt with a few of my friends. It was like 1030 11 at night. I was walking around with my one friend nando when I saw 3 shadow fingurs runing by us I was freaked out I went looking for them but could not find them so that's my story
