What Are These Shadow Spirits I'm Seeing?


First off to explain what the "shadow spirits" are. I call them shadow spirits because they are spirits but they don't look like a spirit, for me when I see a spirit I can see all of them, every last detail, but these are black, shadows, tall, mysterious, like they have a shield against me figuring them out. So far I have seen 3 different "shadows" all of them male. When I'm in their presents I feel like they aren't good but they aren't bad either, maybe angry, lonely, lost, but also calm, peaceful.

Sometimes I wake up with scratches on me, now I'm not saying its them but I'm just linking it to them because they are more, hostile than other spirits. But anyway, the scratches will be on my back or arms, sometimes legs, there's usually 4 marks all beside each other. I feel no reason to be afraid of these spirits because the scratches I feel symbolize something but I can't figure it out. Which intrigues me more, but the spirits like run from me for hide from me, unless they come to me on their own time.

I've had a couple dreams about these spirits, one is a recurring dream, I get this dream every June 20-30 anytime between there. The dream starts off as me running looking behind me than a shadow spirit running in front of me, ushering me to hurry, I end up in another world, and all the people are half animal half human, all the animal parts are more powerful animals such as a wolf, or a bear, so I end up meeting some and than an old man kidnaps me, ties me to a chair and puts one of my friends in a clear glass like I bigger fish tank, and makes me watch him kill them. Its gross and I hate the dream but it never goes away.

The second dream that is more recent (keep in mind these dreams ended at least a month ago) when I enter my dream I walk into a forest and the sun is starting to set so its kind of dark and the shadow man is standing in front of me, he brings me to an old cabin and I look from the window to see about 5 people male and female standing around a table chanting and cutting open a little boy, they take a cup, the cup is silver with I guess rubies around the top, the steam of the cup is a little longer than a wine glass, so they fill the cup up with blood and start passing it around, somehow I got to the door in like 5 seconds and walked in, they all looked at me with expressions like they were waiting for me to show up, so I took the cup and finished the blood that was in it, they end up circling around me and chanting and all this stuff and then I wake up to the shadow guy either standing on the other side of my room, sitting on my bed touching my leg, or standing over me and looking at me.

Both dreams seem so real, like usually dreams seem real, but man these dreams are like over the top feel every movement that you make, everything you touch, everything you smell, hear, see. It's weird.

One night, my two best friends were telling me about this dream they had previous to the day. Friend #1 (we'll call her that) her dream was about this shadow man running around her room knocking all her papers and posters off her wall and knocking all the stuff on her dresser off, when she woke up all her papers, posters, make up, hairbrushes, ect were scattered all over the floor. Friend #2 had a dream of a shadow man running full speed around her room leaving black chalky hand prints all over her walls, when she woke up there was chalky hand prints all over her wall, you can still see them to this day. I had never told them about what I see and I still never will.

So I don't feel like these shadows are harmful to a very bad extent, but they still do some things that aren't really like the best most friendly things. Again like I said previously I think they are a mixture of both good and bad, and mainly the bad is control by something else.

So some insight on this would be great so I can maybe learn more about the "shadow spirits" and maybe learn how to get them all around me so I can talk to them, and see what they want, because of right now they are sending me mixed thoughts and I can't really figure it out, which is kind of annoying for me.

Thanks, also sorry for the length of this I hope you don't get bored!

Cheers, Victoria

They aren't good, but they aren't bad, maybe angry lonely lost, but calm and peaceful... But you end up with scratches all over you from them... But maybe these scratches are just symbolic, and you want to find the meaning of them. They are everything you said, but none of the above... Is your pet by any chance a catdog?!? If your story isn't just a teenage fantasy, I would say you're pretty mixed up, which makes you vulnerable! Do yourself a favour, and just tell them: "In the name of Jesus christ, go away and leave me alone... And God bless you!" Simple as that!+

dryadlady said to "get the garlic out".

This may sound absurd to many, but I wish to share that in my culture; many people believe in spirits and such, and such things are spoken of more freely and less frowned upon than in the West.

My wife was raised in the East and she once told me that garlic repels bad spirits; and someone who eats a lot of garlic has very powerful protection from becoming possessed. Now this may sound like a lot of BS to someone who grew up in the West, but many people in my country (south-east asia region) believe in such things.

When I visited my birth country with my wife, there was a hotel that we stayed at during our vacation. My wife told me that the owners must of had some problems with spirits before. I asked her why she thought so. In reply, she pointed to the garland of garlic stringed together and hung up on the very high ceiling.

I do not believe in the types of vampires that are portrayed in hollywood (most namely Dracula), but I do believe in the existence of psychic vampires; such as an incubus (male) or a succubus (female).

So, in short. Try keeping garlic around in your nearby vacinity; and maybe eat more of it. This surely wouldn't hurt as garlic is also a very powerful antioxidant!
Keep bad spirits away and boost your immune system at the same time -- how great is that?! 😁

Hello vicgal123~

Shadows and other creatures of the unseen are known as "Jinn" in Islam (meaning "hidden"). There are different kinds among them and they're mortal like us. They can be good natured if they want to be or ill-natured if they wish. Good natured Jinn tend to mind their own business, its usually the bad ones that mess around with humans. Smaller (ill-natured) Jinn can be kept away by keeping pets (such as cats) in the house, but this is usually not enough to keep the bigger/stronger ones away. The ill-natured Jinn usually don't like positivity, happiness, and light energy - so it might be a good idea to cleanse the energies in your home - you can visit my profile for a youtube link to cleanse the energies in your home. Hope this helped~

scratches on your face and arms, hum hum haw, well all I can say judging bymy past experiences, is it sounds like yu have a vampire visiting yu! Get the garlic out!
If yu ahve, jsut remember, I do it, to bite them back, they soon whimper and stop it, and then they will ahve the scars to prove it...
In my incubus or succubus attacks, I visdualize a sword, and strike the imaginary foe down, or I say aloud "CLAWS" and yu grow claws, and defend yourself... In all dreams, we are the Masters and in control of our dreams. Stand your ground, its taken me all of 16yrs, not to cower in fright, now I know wot to do after reading their books, and studying the enemy!
Dont be a christian, pay back evil for evil... Demons don't believe in love yur enemy do good to those that hate yu, its not in their nature to be nice, they are attracted to their hosts, the lowest of the low... Ivwe seen several of them, they attach themself to the back of a person, never the front!

I'm sure you do know a lot about many things. You are using PK very well. Reiki is when you gently touch the body to heal with the energy flowing through your hands. Its funny that you talked about that. I don't need to touch the body. Use PK wisely.

I think that I know a lot about these kinds of things also. I've had some experience with Reiki, but it was never an actually class, only research online. I still remember being a teenager and being able to move my curtains at complete will, I even played a prank on my old friend and said it was a ghost. I haven't tried to train on any of my abilities in a -very- long time, but now I think I should.

Is that P you typed a misstype or did you mean to put it there? If it was a misstype than leave it at that. If you meant it than I believe you may already been told their names.
Also, you are strong enough to recreate the dream and still follow through. You need to believe more in yourself.

Eagleclaw: Yeah that makes sense, ill do that next june when the dream comes again:P usually I can control my dreams becausse I'm a lucid dreamer these ones are alittle harder because the shadows and the old man do have a lot of power, also do you a name for these shadow spirits? I'd like to call them what they really are so I can show them respect

Dimadude: yeah not a problem at all, I don't know A LOT but I do know basic stuff so if you ever have any other questions about anything, any kind of power just email me victoria. Gallant (at)

Its good to start a relationship with people on here because they really can help you through the toughest times, that's what I have gotten out of my experience on this website.

Thank you to both of you for messaging me and talking, I appreciate it so much

You are welcome. Just so you know. Most people have about 4 or 5 spirit guides all through their life. They never leave you. And remember the unknown always causes fear. The wrinkly old man is defineitely not a shadow spirit. He is the one that they chant to. When he takes you to the cabin he is showing you his world and inviting you to join. Now, you can change this dream if you want. First, allow your dream to happen. Wait until the old man comes to you. Tell him to untie you and let the animals (spirit guides) go. Ask him to take you to the cabin. When you get there tell him that you do not want to join and not to ask you again. He may get pissed but he will not hurt you. Why, because you are strong and he knows it. That's why he wants you. You can change any dream that you like its up to you. Oh, and you can ask your spirit guides to help you with this task. They are there to help you.

Dimadude: yeah that's what happens to me sometime, most of the times they are dreams but sometimes ill just be in a half asleep half awake sense and have the same thing, which is weird, and to the second message you posted, I'm not afraid of these shadow spirits because like Eagleclaw said they are trying to help me, which I see now that someone else has said it, but at the same time there's still something alittle eerie about them, I don't know what it is, maybe its the fact that they are a mystery to me, I don't know. But I don't think you should be afraid unless you truly feel like you have to.

Eagleclaw: thanks it did help actually getting insight on this does help a lot because I'm trying to get as much information from people that know about this stuff so thank you. And yes my spirit guide is a wolf actually I have done this meditation method to find out what your protector is and its a wolf, but can you have more than one protector? The weird thing about the animal dream which I forgot to mention in the story part is that the man cutting up the animal/people is like a shadow spirit BUT I can see more detail in him, which is wrinkles and black eyes really pasty and lanky.

Is that the same case for me? I'm a little afraid of what will happen next...

The shadow spirits are there to warn you or to try to get you to realize what is going on. Shadow people do not scratch people they are just watchers for someone else. The first dream says that you are seeing the slaying of animal spirits which also could be your protectors or spirit guides. The second dream is your shadow spirit trying to stop you from drinking the blood. Someone around you or knows of you may be trying to get you to join their cult. And, the scratches are of a evil entity and the shadow people are trying their best to help you. Also, they went to your friends to get them involved in your situation. They knew that they would talk to you about their dreams. Its up to you what happens next. Make the right decision that is best for you. Hope this helps.

I just recently found this sight, and I'm very glad I did. I have very similar dreams to yours, but they aren't exactly "dreams". Once, I was sitting down and relaxing, but then I ended up in this awkward half-asleep position. All of a sudden I saw My old campsite, from when I was about 11-14, with all my old friends (some I still know). We were sitting down, and suddenly multiple shadows came up from the ground, looking all similar to yours. The friends that I do not talk to anymore were dead by the end of this "dream", and my last 2 friends and I were severely cut up, and when I awoke I was covered in multiple scratch marks.
