Shadows as Psychic Signs


Hello everyone, I don't believe I am truly psychic, by no means, but for several years I have seen shadows walk down hallways at the hospital and where I work and on people's faces as well just before they die. Depending on how dark the shadow is depends on when they will die. I used to know the name of this gift but I can't remember the name of it. Can anyone help me out with this. I was told once before it came from Greek mythology and what I see is an angel guiding the spirit to where it belongs and that I am not to interfere at all when I see it.

I am not sure why I would see this at all myself. But, if anyone knows anything of this gift or even the name I would like to know. I have seen this in my own family members and also the patients I take care of and I am rarely wrong about the time or day of their death. When I am wrong I believe it because I try too hard to see it. As in the case of my great grandfather. I could not see his death at all. But I could tell when everyone else in the family was going. Please let me know, Frances

I also see some black spots/shadows.
If you/anyone here want, join my group on Facebook, "Spirituality". It is private, so first you must add me: Kyupa Suria (sunsolaris2000 [at] if still cannot find me). You will know more about it... As soon as my guess is confirmed by the esoteric school I joined. I made the group for people that want to know more about this stuff.

I agree with Diane's post on 2008-02-28, and the original author's post. In the couple of months before my mom passed, at least three or four times, I saw a dark shadow out of the corner of my eye about 10-15 feet away and I would jump thinking someone was standing there all of a sudden. At first I thought it was because my eyes were tired from all the stress, etc. From her declining health, but then by the third time the thought just came in my head 'It's the shadow of death.' I have never experienced this before or since. I won't be surprised if I do experience it again when my dad or siblings or very close friends pass.

I started having premonition-type dreams around 12 years old - about random things and with no control, one or two a year. The latest one was about my husband's first cousin - I dreamed that his wife was pregnant and I sent an email and in fact she was 3 months pregnant and they had just told the immediate family. This is separate from listening to that intuitive 'voice in your head' about day to day activity. I mean like a hunch to drive a different way to work, etc.

I just consider all of this type of thing as intuitive spiritual gifts from God - like being able to play the piano or having the ability to do brain surgery, some people are more gifted than others.

I've met a couple of truly clairvoyant people, and what I understand from them is that our auras show those who have the ability to be more intuitive than others - it is a blue color.

I just pray that whatever gifts I have, I'll be lead to do good in the world. All may sound corny, but back to the point of this post - it was my experience that the dark grey shadows were directly tied to someone's upcoming passing.

Thanks for listening.

I can see white and black shadows moving around our house but I just ignore them because I think my eyes is just tired or it's just my imagination.

Hi,I am so glad I have found this site. This is my first posting and its nice to know I can mention some of the things I have seen seeing without facing strange looks. I have been seeing shadow figures from the corner of my eye since I was a young teenager. As soon as I see them they would quickly run away into another room, I didn't take much notice until recently when I moved to a new place. Now I sometimes see them in front of me, once outside during the day time. On two or three occassion these figures were more solid and moved more slowly, they seemed to be a different type from the shadow ones I saw.
On some nights I have woken up at 3am with a feeling of dread or something wrong, I also get a sense of someone in the room with me.
Im not sure is what I'm seeing is real or my imagination. It doesn't happen all the time which makes it hard to predict or evaluate. I have other experiences which I won't relate at this time.

I have had very similar experiences to yours. Whenever someone close to me is going to pass, I see a dark shadow. With me however, intensity of the color is not so much of a predictor, but how close it comes to me seems to have some significance. I refer to it as the Angel of Death who is trying to prepare me for the loss of a loved one, so that I am prepared. I hope this comforts you in knowing that you are not alone in experiencing this phenomenon.

I have dreams at night most of them can predict what happens years before it really does. Like one example when I was living in newyork I had a dream about my bus driver and a friend getting killed in a car accident in augusta georgia but I didn't know the people about 5 years later when I moved to georgia and I knew the 2 people that's when I started to think and I realized where I seen there faces from about 3 months later they was killed a drunk driver crossed the divider on the highway and the truck landed on top of their car I still have the news paper for evidence.

I haven't been on this site long or would have spoken sooner. I don't "see" shadows. That is a very special ability. I pick up something though, electricity almost. Feelings. Have always sensed death whether a sickness present or soon or an accident that will happen soon. It's comforting to me. You will feel what to say to those near that person to comfort them also. I find it interesting that royalty, kings and queens, in history never said, "I am..." They always used "we" as if talking about their kingdom all the time or more than one entity. Perhaps they understood that we aren't really alone.

Hello Francis.Well, I think you may be psychic, if you can see death then I would say you are. Does this scare you? I don't have any ideas about what it might be. I don't think it is mythology through. It's a premonition. Can you see other things as well? Take Care.

My camera always show weird beams of blue light and white circles/flashes when I am taking the picture and when I have already taken it and am looking at it... I strongly believe in the paranormal but I do not think these are orbs but I'm not sceptical they could be...

by the way mine is a red circle which is round my lamp when taking pictures I think camera can see more things than we can see usual things. I have seen all sorts in my pictures. I don't think it nothing bad we should try finding out what this could be by doing research on a search engine which could help us.

hi john klein jr I see round circles in my pictures round my lamp I don't really know what it means I have also seen shadows of symbols and that. You see more in pictures cause I see spirits/ghosts in mine which I didn't see. They come out when you are taking pictures.

Im not to the point were I see shadows every where. Some times I don't know what I have I see shadows every once in a while and every now and then its different voices in my head. Were my body gets all numb and I can't talk, move or breath at the same time I have my eyes open. I know what it tells me but once I twitch I'm released and the only thing I remember is just their names... Any one ever experienced this kind... I would love to know what I have or like every one tells me they are just bad dreams but how can it be a dream if I can feel and hear one they touch me?

there either spirits or figures ye there shadows and if you notice a shadow moving or in shapes or moving it shapes it one they are mostly likely to be seen in hospitals because they go to people have a look on you tube and you know what I mean there's a video type in real ghosts videos one will pop up the first one and there's a picture it has a red circling something click on that video and watch it it explains everything you see. It may be in this video there's a spirit over someone in a hospital the title it says is real ghost pictures its ghost pictures made into a movie which is real

I don't know what that ability is called but I know that my husband said he was seeing 'shadowy figures" around him in the final weeks before he died. The day before he passed he was seeing them in the doorway of his room and asked "who are those people"? There was no one there that any of us could see.
