The Roaming Shadow Man


While giving tours here in Charleston,S.C. I became acquainted with a most interesting entity. Most people would refer to him as a shadow person of sorts. I say he, because the shadow outline seem to appear as a man. Slightly taller than me so I would guess five foot seven.

One evening while driving to work in downtown around dusk, I had my first encounter with him. I was cutting across town on Beaufain St. And when I reached Smith St. I stopped at the intersection. Right there before me was a wispy shadow of a man walking down Smith St. The apparition continued by walking cross the street in front of me. When I passed through the intersection I was able to see him as he continued to walk down Smith St. Towards Queen. St. This was the beginning of my acquaintance in May of 2009.

One evening in June 2009 I had finished locking up the jail on Magazine St. After giving tours; which is near Smith & Beaufain streets. I was crossing the rear of the jail yard to my car when from the gate crossing the lot is shadow man. I had to flash my light on him briefly and he stopped in his tracks. I asked the entity to let me pass to my car and he did.

I saw him again in the beginning of June 2009 crossing that lot. At the same time as before when I was closing. Since shadow man never approached me to harm me I asked him if he could understand me and he nodded. I told him that I can understand him. Once again in June toward the end of that month I saw shadow man in the lot once more; only this time in a voice that sound as if it were dusty from the earth of a grave, chillingly he asked "Help me" I nodded back yes.

Since I have not met many shadow spirits, I went to the library and began research to find out more about what I may be dealing with. As I continued to read his behavioral patterns seemed to mimic the behavior of a zombie worker. Through further reading into root (Vodoo) culture I found some information about zombies. Some of my research lead me to the idea, as stated in books, that salt could cause a zombie to be able to relocate their original grave site. Thus allowing them to return to the spiritual pathway and break the control cycle of being incarcerated by the curse of the person who created them.

The last time I saw the shadow man was in the beginning of August of 09 once again at closing crossing the parking lot. As he passed me I said to him "Salt". I have not seen him since.

I saw a shadow person a week ago at the end of my bed but I didn't feel frightenend or any thing I kind of stared at it. I blinked and it was gone. Ghostfriend123 maybe the shadow person has moved on or some thing. 😁

I think there are a few type of 'shadow people'. I've heard of a bunch of them described different ways. The 'shadow person' I encountered in my story "A Dark Cloak" is different from the one you describe and the ones others describe.

Maybe someone should try to classify these 'shadow people...'

I see shadow people, we sorta talk, but without words. Couldn't tell you what they are, but a few of them are in the high school I'm attending this September. They've never asked for help from me, so maybe this one was different.

😠 😳 😊

Hi you guys: this is my first post on this site and it's great to read all this fascinating stuff.

Could this have been a spirit?: I was sitting alone in my cousin's house and this weird electric-sounding clicking sound came from everywhere and nowhere. It sounded like a loud quartz clock with an AA battery going bonkers. But it was NOT the clocks.

My cousin heard in my bedroom: it travelled throughout the house. We were talking and it (the electrical "tick") even seemed to emit from his plastic sweet tea mug!

Whatever it was, it was TOO OBVIOUS TO IGNORE. When my cousin saw my excitement (always wanted to 'experience' this stuff) He got rather spooked (he admitted that he couldn't explain it) and left my room in a huff.

It has never returned

Maybe. Shadow people are interesting because I'm not sure anyone knows what they really are. I saw one once as a child, but only for a brief moment, and it scared the living daylights out of me! It's for this reason that many people believe they're evil, or low vibrational entities. Others think they might be inter-dimensional beings. Some say they seem curious, others, that they get a feeling of dread when they're around. Who knows--your story is intriguing nonetheless ^^

I've heard that salt is useful for curses and evil energy in general, perhaps this 'shadow person' was a cursed man?
