Shadows

I have seen a shadowperson 2 times in my life. The first time I was 7 and I might been dreaming but I saw one howering over my bed, and I got really scared and a scence of dread and evil and screamed and it wanished when my mom came. Now I'm 25 and I really never forgot this, then i heard of the shadow people and discovered that others had similar stories to what I saw. Then one night when I was going to bed my boyfriend were in the bathroom and there was no light in our appartment beacause we were going to sleep. I was laying in bed when I thougt my boyfriend was coming into the room and I could only see a dark siloeth. I sat up in bed and smiled in welcome and then I heard a noice behind it, this was my boyfriend, when he came into the room the siloeth crept allong the wall and disapeared at astonishing speed. But this time I did not sence anything bad from the shadow. If they are real I dont think they mean any harm, mayby they just reflect our own emotions, it only seemed curius.

Have you found out any more information about this figure you have seen? Because I have seen one similar. It was black, tall, and had electric blue eyes. It also had long pointy fingers. other than that, there were no other features to this "being."

Property

Well I can tell you this, I have lived in mass and everything about the places there i've been to have a lot of history and a lot of bad vibes. While I don't know much about tgat area, I do know this, odds are you got a local haunted house. They don't sound like shadow people but they do sound like ghosts. There's not a lot of things you can do about haunted houses but there are ways to try to get people who know a thing or two about paranormal activities. First, if the problem gets worse, show those pics to some paranormal investigators and see where you will go from there. If you know nothing about the paranormal, DO NOT engage them by yourself. Let someone who knows what they're doing take care of it. Help can be found just start looking for the answers, that's all. Hopefully I got you a step in the right direction, hope it helps.

Red blazing eyes

This experience is of great concern. I saw a woman looking at me through the outside of my sisters window looking in, while eating dinner at her house. I wasnt scared but more mad because why was this lady looking at me with those red eyes and grinning. Why me???? Im

.........Now I know I saw them..........

The house I grew up in had a huge picture window. My couched was positioned so that I could see out it perefely left eye. Lot of times - espcially while minding my brothers I would see this shadow women out of the corner of my eye. It wasn't just once, it was multiple times in 5 minutes to make sure I saw her. I never knew what they were till now. And yes, they do call out your name.

Yes, they follow you

I know I shared my opinion already but based off my own experience, I can say this; yes some shadow folk follow you, but consider why they follow you. Maybe they want to help you, maybe they want to screw around with your life, you got to understand. We want to scurry about because in our fleshy forms, we have a shelf life. They have all the time in the world to do whatever interests them. They just consider if following you is worth it. Whether good or bad intentions are intended, they'll consider those options. After you realize that, then it comes time to consider your own options and once again DO YOUR'E HOMEWORK!

I have harmless shadow people and or per

maybe 1yr ago my daughter in law and son was staying. with me temporarily and she stated she saw 3 figures. a man woman and. child I have since then only seen glimpses out the corner of my eye they have never been mischievous or harmful and any nature although I have felt playfulness and caring from them. I was down in the dumps 1 day had an orange on my coffee table it wouldn't have been able to move off the table I heard a noise it was rolling on the floor they were trying to cheer me up I told them to stop playing but thank you for caring. recently I was very upset and crying sitting on my sofa then my sofa started to move slowly rocking me when I came up to my room home and lie down my bed was slowly rocking me I felt someone sit down at my feet to comfort me it was awesome I am not afraid of them we share the same home we can coexist I have 2 dogs who don't react negative

The Darkness Houses Everything Dark

Just so you know, darkness isn't evil or a thing to be afraid of, most of all the galaxies are just lights being held up in this dark cosmos. Demons, ghosts, yes even angels take to the darkness either shinning against it like light or being one with it. The only real way to tell what they are, is just your own intuition. If it is or you think it is something terrible and demonic, odds are it is and you should consider thinking what to do about it. But they have just as much a choice to be there as you do, shadow folk or otherwise, we're sharing this existance with them whether we want them or not. People need to stop thinking they have all the power. The best we can do to make them go away is sit down and do your homework. What do demons hate, use it against them till they finally get tired of trying, they'll go away. But they're more animals than people only by nature, only thinking about feeding off fear or sadness. Shadow folk are way more advanced, we just happen to live here too.

How do you get them to go away?

They have always been there. I remember watching the light images separate when I was in my crib. The first time that I saw a shadow was when I was 7. I was looking at the dark room when the shadow of the dresser gathered and turned into a bear and walked. Have seen them mostly in "human" form. They will not leave. Every moment of everyday. I see them, feel them. As a child I swear I felt them "take" me. As soon as I was almost asleep, they would come. I felt them and braced myself, pushing them away. It felt like a horizontal rollercoaster. Anyone ever get them to go away? I have moved several times. They follow me, the last move was 1000 miles. Trapped.
