Afraid Of Shadows And The Dark At 14


My father died an unexpected death in March of 2005. About one or two years after his death I began seeing black shadows with his silhouette in the place he was most when he was alive; the basement. The shadows would be in the same spot every time they appeared and would stay there for about five seconds at a time. This happened five to seven times.

One year after, what I believe to be my father visiting, first appeared, a friend and I went to another friend's house where I saw another shadow. We were joking around and were going inside when I looked to the right side of his house and I saw a figure turn that corner. They were already inside so I quickly went after it. I turned the corner and it was gone.

I and two other friends have witnessed these shadows since and have been keeping a close eye when they appear. In June of this year, 2009, at the first friend's house at around three in the morning, we saw what looked like an arm reach out towards the handle area on her front door. We heard the lock on her door being messed with as the arm's hand touched that area. One second later the sound stopped and the arm disappeared. I found out later that someone died in the house prior to my friend's family's move in.

My second friend is seeing these shadows outside her house almost every night. She says that she has seen them inside too; also, that they seem evil. A couple of weeks after she mentioned this to me I decided to do some research and came upon shadow ghosts. These ghosts are often referred to as demons which I believe in this case they are.

We all are afraid to be in a pitch black room because of what might be in there with us.

I am wondering if what we have is a gift or not and if it has a name. I would like to know what exactly it is that we are seeing. Please leave a comment if you have any idea that could help me and my friends.

As usual, the other posters here have a point. 😁 But you shouldn't think they're all evil. What would casper the friendly ghost think if you thought he was evil? Ha. Take a look at it from another perspective. They're probably scared of you sometimes. Some like messing with you, just as Sarah12375 said, but that's only some. You'll get used to it after a while. The ghosts at my house keep me up all night 😐, but whatever. Each is different, they're still human. 😁

Well I just read your post, I'm 14 also by the way... And I see these people all the time too, daily.

Shadow ghost as you called them aren't evil, I have 6 to 10 different spirits that visit me, some are permanently bound to this house I think while others aren't.

Anyways they show up as these black figures or orbs, because they don't have enough energy to show you them as they usually look like... Some may be evil or are just trying to get a laugh and scare you like a lot like to do, but I don't think they're evil. Try looking at it in their perceptive next time. 😁

I thought the ones around me were evil too at the begging, but once you get used to them you realize, the things they do is to just get your attention, or too point something out that they need to give someone, or just to tell you they're there...

Imagine being stuck in the world where basically no one can see you? And if you do stumble on the rare few that can, wouldn't you be like them and try to get your attention?

Thank you for the sites you posted. About the shadow ghosts, the articles say that they disappear quickly while the ones my friends and I have seen seem to act like they want to be seen. They look at us so I am still if'y about those ones but the one I saw a year after my father's death at that boy's house probably was a shadow ghost. Leave a comment if either of you find anything else and I will too just in case you might want to hear more. Thank you again. ❤

Sorry about the wrong web address, try this-


When you get to the site go to the research tab, then scroll down to seeing ghosts (don't click on it) and then go to shadow ghosts.

Hope this helps!:)

Oh, here, I have something else for you. Http://
If you haven't read that before, it explains possible theories as to what the shadow ghosts might be. I personally believe the astral theory.

I'd never heard of shadow ghosts before now, so I just did a little research and it turns out that almost every house has shadow ghosts in it. You and your friends don't have a psychic gift for seeing them; everyone can. I found a great article on the subject (, and it's interesting that you said they seem evil because that's what everyone else says. If you haven't already seen this article, you should check it out. Unfortunately, I can't give you any advice about seeing them. By the way, I'll be 14 this month and I think you and your friends are so brave for not going insane with fear (I know I would). I'll ask somebody I know online about this, though. She's really knowledgeable about supernatural things and might know what to tell you. Good luck!
