Real Psychic Experiences

Black Silhouette


When I was younger, I remember seeing constantly a black silhouette on doors and windows. It just took a peek and faded away, but fast enough that I never had time to actually try to talk or something. Besides I used to look at other side because it kind of scared me.

It was a simple thing and I'm actually having a hard time reaching 1500 characters, as I could have described this on a single paragraph.

I am here after reading some similar experiences here, and I thought I could get a answer, maybe.

That happened on many different houses and for many years. I never really did anything and I didn't told anyone. It was thin, never shown any hair and was taller than me at the time. Nobody on my family looked like that so I'm pretty sure it wasn't a person. It happened mostly at night, but I remember seeing it on sunlight too. It did not matter if there was more people on home and even if someone was close to where I saw it, they never said anything.

Thankfully, it haves been a long time since that last happened (specifically, after moving to what used to be my grandfather's house) but I just wanted to know if it was my imagination or something was really happening.

I would be very grateful with anyone that told me what that was. Sorry if this is trivial or obvious, but I don't think I have any psychical ability and I never got too much into this. If I make incorrect use of a word or something like that, that's because I have a limited English knowledge and I don't usually use it for something other than reading short text. I used word to spell-check and I hope I didn't miss anything on the process.

Thanks, and have a nice day.

I just wanted to understand, i'm not interested on seeing more of this. I would end up mad.

But thanks for your answer, now I feel much safer:)

Do you want to have more experiences like this, or just want to understand what it was?

Actually, yes, my grandfather passed out 5 years ago, I'm currently living on what used to be his house.

And it was kind of creepy. Not something I was really afraid of (I think I found being alone scarier than that, but now that I know it was possibly a spirit, I think it would be proper to call it a he) , still, I wasn't particularly fond of him being on home.

So this shadow figure is peeking around the door and then quickly disappears?

Many people have seen shadow people. Some say it is a way of seeing entities and can develop into more full images later. Others feel it has to do with negativity or rejected negativity by someone who has passed. Then, it followed you? The other homes it was in--was that after your grandfather's house?

Were there others in your grandfather's family that lived in that house that had passed?

I wouldn't worry about it too much. It may have just been a spirit in transition. If you are open to receiving it, you may get more. Or not.

How do you feel about seeing this shadow figure? Scared? Glad? Curious? Your attitude can have a lot to do with what happens next.

I'm assuming your grandfather had already passed when you moved into his home? He might have been checking out who came to live there.
