Seeing Dark Shadows And Energy Questions


I was wondering if anyone could shed some light on what is hanging around my bedroom at night while I sleep. A few weeks ago the early hours of my birthday I woke up twice for my baby daughter through the night only to see a hooded grey shadowy figure standing before me for a second before disappearing. I felt no fear at the sight of this figure and fell back off to sleep as though nothing strange had happened. I spoke with a psychic medium I have had to my house before who said it was my spirit guide. So that was fine, I was quite happy to have a visit from my guide on my birthday.

However, over the last couple of weeks I have seen what I can only describe as black shadow/smoke type shapes at night while I am in my bed. For example, first time I seen this I had not actually fallen asleep yet but opened my eyes and it was just there, above my partner. I was taken aback and started hitting it shouting "what is that!" and it just disappeared. I woke up one night to a tall dark one of these that looked about the size of a person but not the shape of one, I gasped and it disappeared. I woke up later that same night and there was a mass of this blackness just between me and my partner in the middle of the bed, once it realised I had seen it, it disappeared. This has happened many times. I was wondering what this is? I have been having some strange dreams lately and was wondering if this could be anything to do with it? For example dreams where I cheat on my partner or he cheats on me, or someone following me, looking for me, also strange ones that I cannot quite go into as one in particular was quite disturbing.

I have seen others stories of shadow people but this is not in the shape of a person at all.

I also see what I am sure is energy, and was wondering if anyone could also help me understand exactly what kind of energy I am seeing. Firstly, at night before I sleep I often see faces in my head of people I do not know which are usually sad. I have also seen faces of my partners grandmother and grandfather recently which where smiling at me, when I opened my eyes there were two transparent balls of what looked like energy (could you call these orbs? They weren't made of light) floating above my baby daughters cot, so I assumed this was them visiting my daughter, who they never got to see before they died.

I recently have taken a course in Reiki which has enabled me to see these currents of what I think are energy a bit more clearly. Where I am confused is that when I am sitting in my room on my own I can see one, two or several of these balls of energy moving around my room as well as constant movement throughout the air, and a flow comes from them like when you see heat coming from a fire or radiator. These balls of energy can often have colours coming from them - light blue, sometimes light green and sparks of colour. So am I seeing spirits? Or am I seeing my own energy? Or both? Is this spirit in energy form? These balls of energy can sometimes float from the corner of my room right over to me so I don't think it can be my own energy coming from that far away. Very confused. Could someone help?

Sorry about the length of this story but I wanted to make sure I had mentioned as much detail as possible.

Many thanks.

"pathR" was right when she/he said that when you opened up to reiki, you said to the universe: "i am open"...spread eagle wide open! Newagers say:"Open yourself up to the universe, and let it take you where it will!" Well, the universe is full of good, bad,ugly, and evil spirits... How can you leave the door open to them? It's like saying to a stranger: "Hop in my car, and drive me where you want to go!" same difference... Reiki practitioners invoke random unknown "healing spirits" and channel them into themselves and into the patient! How can you trust your body, soul and life, to be invaded by these spirits!? My advice is to pray to Jesus and His powerful Holy Angels and saints for healing... That way you'll be safe! Better safe than sorry! Because you yourself said, that you prayed to God, that if these orbs-spirits are not from Him, and pose a risk to your family, to take them away... And He did! That proves that reiki brought unclean/evil spirits to your home! I wish people would listen to testimonies like yours, that prove that "opening up to the universe" in an occult way, is like putting your hand in the fire! Stay safe. God bless!

Thank you both so much for your help. It is nice to hear other peoples opinions and there experiences.

I will definitely try that shielding technique eagleclaw. I can relate to what you said about the mist and my loved ones as when I was being bothered by this, my sister who lives in another area was having problems with the same kind of thing at the same time, she would wake surrounded by black. I was definitely experiencing a lot of nightmares at this time.

I just wonder why I see so many of these orbs all the time and why one will always follow my line of vision. I haven't received any clear images or information for a while, a couple of nights ago I was receiving images of my son but it was like looking at it through smashed glass. I could not see it or any of the other images they were trying to show me very well. I got fed up and told them to leave me alone as I was very tired.

Thanks for your time and your help. Much appreciated.

As we go though lifes up and downs
At one time or another we are vulnerable hence protection is important. If we eminate love and strong light to any nasties I call them they do not
Care for positive light or love.

To gain verification setting time to meditate
Will give you proof of all things.

Girsol It is common for family whom have passed to come over and visit a new birth or wedding, deaths and check on loved ones. We had this with my husbands nephew when he was born at Hospital.
The little guy spoke of seeing Auntie D when he was
At school. No one in the home speaks of her.
She passed before he was born.

Orbs fall into various catagories: deceased loved ones Angels, guides or masters and can be earth energy seems to fit the description of the smoke.

When you opened up to Reiki on one level you were saying to the Universe I am open. Hence the orbs that
Came unceasingly sound like souls whom needed help were attracted to the light and healing from you.

The one that sat and eminated infront of you as you
Relaxed is your guide. The fact that images are appearing as you relax is showing a spiritual connection. For me my guides are ancestors and I mean the old type. Their colors are green and an earth tone of browns. They have helped me in healing and actually hold the energy when I work on patients in the hospital. On the other hand I have a protector
Which was interesting for I saw her levitate into my flat.
She was 3 feet possible larger her colors eminated many beautiful colors with sparks as well as peace and unconditional love. When I had experienced her energy aligning with mine it was how an orb would work. She in a catagory as a Angel. I truely believed she intervened and saved me from a rape many years ago. Which I am truly grateful for.

Please keep contine on the path of healing. It will be a wonderful journey.

Peace and light ❤

I may be able to help you. As you already know, you can see auras and the colors in and around yourself and others. Your ability is getting stronger. Congratulations! Most auras are 10 to 12 inches from the body when in normal state. After one meditates your aura expands uo to 15 feet or more. Some are less than 15 feet. It depends on the persons aura strength. Auras would be filled with colors,holes,sparks and sensations. But, they are constant. An aura will not dart from one side of the room to the other. That is the difference between auras and spirits. So, the hooded grey figure is a watcher. They are watching you for someone else. That's what they do. And, the orbs are spirits which show up as orbs of energy. And, you are right. If you sit and relax a bit I'm sure that they will send you vibrations and visions. Just tell them to leave if you do not wish them to bother you any more. My only concern for you is the black shadow that was above you. It is not a shadow person, watcher or a spirit. It is a dark black mist. It is filled with negative energy and spirits/entities. With one entity being the one who controlls the others. But, all are negative in some way. It will cause you to have negative violent dreams. If you astral progect it will attack you very violently. It will purposely scare others that do not have abilities. If you ever hear its voice you will be shaken. It is imperative that you learn a protection technique for yourself and your loved ones. Imagine yourself stepping into a bubble of white light with loving thoughts and feelings from head to toe. Imagine that bubble having a permanant seal. Then do that for each of your loved ones. You need to will it to happen. Then and only then you will need to tell that mist to leave you alone and that it is not to bother you or your loved ones again. Also, look into protective stones and home cleansing rituals. Maybe someone on this site can help you with this. You have the ability to do this. You need to believe in yourself and protect your loved ones. Remember, spirits and entities are attracted to healers. Just so you know, I have been dealing with the black mist for many years. It can go anywhere and will follow you or any of your loved ones. It feeds of of negative thoughts and energy. So, stay positive and strong no matter what.

Can anyone help me with my energy question below please? Angela

I have a question about energy and didn't want to submit a new story for it but I am interested to know what the web of energy is that I see everyday. Its right infront of my face and follows my line of vision. I do not know quite how to describe it.

I see orbs of energy a lot. This looks the same but I see it all the time it can be far away and drift in closer or sometimes I can wake and it will be right in front of my face, it follows wherever I look. It will start emitting colours if I sit and relax. If I close my eyes this energy can form into pictures and images in my mind.

Can it be an orb if it is there all the time? Or is it my own energy? It can be far across the room in front of me though or it can come up very close to my face, follows whatever direction I look.

If anyone could help me with this I would be very appreciative. Thanks. Angela

Zishu, Could you please teach me how to connect to these orbs? I see them so much now and so clearly.

You should try to connect to these orbs. Certain ones are important. I can teach you how to connect to them. There is a deeper reasoning to this. Most shadow beings are not good. God gave you this gift for many purposes.

Thank you for your comment Onyx13. I also see these sparks of energy you talk about. Is there any particular reason a shadow would be drawn to someone to negatively affect them? Like anger or negative thoughts?

The dreams werent necessarily of me hurting anyone. More disturbing in a sexual sense which is why I cannot go into the details of the dream and why it was rather upsetting. I will definitely try having a go at shielding before bedtime then thank you. I have found prayer helpful.

I will try asking these orbs questions. Should I do this out loud? I believe in God but do not follow a particular religion, so spells would be fine with me. Could you give me some details? I haven't heard of psi balls. I will try this also. 😊

Spirits, like everything else in the universe, are made of energy. Energy alone usually appears to me as little sparks, like when you sneeze hard, in my vision and are seen far more clearly on solid colored objects or backgrounds (like the sky).
These dark shapes are usually seen as negative spirits, or "shadow" people. They don't necessarily have to be a human shape since spirits can take on any form they want.

Were the dreams you don't want to talk about of you hurting someone? Usually, they can make you have nightmares. Shielding usually helps keep these entities out. If you don't already know, imagining white or golden light around yourself coming from either above you or from within you helps. Also imagine negative energy bouncing off. Once you shield yourself, also shield the rooms and your baby by applying the same technique. Do the rooms each on it's own at first and then cover your whole home.

The orbs can be spirits or they can simply be energy. Try asking them questions or controlling them. Since you're taking reiki, you can also do simple "spells" if it isn't against your religion. Spells are just programming energy which is what you do with reiki, as well. The orbs can simply be thoughts who sprung to life because of your energy. Ever hear of "Psi balls"? Try placing your hands in front of you and focusing your energy into a ball in the shape in front of you. You can use them for anything really. Shielding, positive thoughts, and/or praying usually helps with all of the issues you have with these shadows. I seem to like them for some reason. Then again, I've never had a negative experience with them and love the night haha.

I should mention that since I wrote this story on Friday I prayed to God that day and night that if these shadows did not have good intentions or were interfering with my dreams or my families in any way to please protect us and take it away, if not then it was fine for it to hang around. I have not seen any of these since and my dreams seem to have returned to normal so far.

Thank you jenin for the link to this article! It was very helpful with regards to shadow people. However, I am still not sure as to whether this is a shadow person I am seeing it moves and takes form into many different shapes, it moves a bit like smoke. I was wondering if it might be a dark form of energy? Since I am also able to see the energy I described above.

I found this article on Shadow People and I found it interesting and useful.


I have had experiences that sound very similar to yours and I can also see energy the way that you described. I do not know what the energy belongs to, exactly, I am still new to researching these things. I started seeing shadow people soon after my son was born a few years ago- I think they may be attracted to new life... Just a theory.
