shadow people in my house

I bought a house 1.5 yrs ago and now I am living with these things in my home. The worst one was staring at me while I was asleep. I woke up because I felt the anger pouring out of that thing. It flew from my bathroom doorway to the hall, but first it was screaming at me in my head. (i don't know how to explain it) It started showing itself in the middle of the day & then I started seeing bright lights flash in the middle of the night. The entire house would fill with a haze & I'd hear things fall or knocking on walls but when I went to see what it was I couldn't find anything. I had to move out of my bedroom for a while. Anyone who went in there complained of pressure in the air and feeling sick to their stomach. Sometimes we would be touched or shoved. These things don't just watch, at least not the ones in my house. I finally found that washing down the entire inside of the house with sea salt & warm water, then blessing the house really helped alot.

Shadow People

I have seen them since I was young. It used to be rare/brief. Now there are more of them, what is going on?!?

Thought everyone saw them

Since i was about 6 yrs. old , i saw the dark figures, became comfortable seeing them. It's when my dr. asked if i see things, i was amazed that he didn't see them, sometime their around so much i get frustrated, other times, i'm not bothered. Glad i'm not alone, crazy.

Creeped out!

I have been followed by one of the shadow people for weeks now int thing I have seen clear is that these beings can move objects I have looked strait at one as it was running and seen branches move.

Have you thought about gtinteg some sort of exorcism to sort this out? I have a friend who got one because she used to have a ghost that threw books around the house at everyone.

coming to collect

sorry, my keyboard shift keys don't work.i began having encounters with a shadow person after my 2nd attempt of suicide in 3 weeks. during my 3rd week at the psych ward he made his first appearance. however, i met a very spiritual woman who was there also.someone i would not normally befriend on the outside.she was by herself, 2 bibles in front of her, singing, not loudly.i walked up to her and asked her if i could listen in.i don't attend church and didn't ever read the bible.she told me nicely that it was personal, but we picked up a conversation anyway.i listened to her because she had the strongest spiritual conviction i have ever seen.she kept telling me we are being attacked, we are at war.no more baby stuff, read and learn from the bible. make myself a child of god. i took what she said to heart.i wish i could tell u more.anyway, we were released the same day.i did what she told me to do and the sightings of the shadow man eventually ceased completely.i have not seen sondra sinc

My own occurance

I have recently been through some really traumatic circumstances , number one being losing my father to cancer Dec last year , the next me being homeless , having a relationship breakdown , my third miscarriage & am in extremely bad health undergoing treatment. But in saying this I am get pretty uneasy at my mums , I'm staying in my old room & I know thetes something in there. The first couple nights was ok , but there after every night I'm kept up till 2:30-3am no matter what time I go to bed. And last night was the freakiest so far !!! Any comments ? /: Or shall I just admit myself to glenside ... ? Lol with me (fuck I sound like a crazy person) there is a chick folloeing me. She only appears between 12am & 3am & between those hours she will NOT let me sleep. Its not a Ghost , well maybe it ks but its a shadow a VERY VIVID dark , black shadow. I can't even describe the feeling I have when she's around. She is between 20-30 and female. And dont ask me how the fuck I know this...

I woke up one night as if I was laying in a hospital bed(very weird because I rarely sleep on my back),I turned my head to the left and this shadowy figure was like inspecting me(my whole body).It looked at me(I startled it),turned to the left and disappeared in the blink of an eye. Its body was humanoid,a complete shadow, I saw it face to face(no eye balls/red eyes),it looked like the alien being on the movie Signs(with Mel Gibson)but a complete full body shadow...

I see them

I dont know what they are. Call it what you want. I dont give them a name or classification.I see them all the time,since as long as I could remember. I have almost "BUMPED" into them several times. Back stepped,straight stopped,almost tripped over them. Im not psycic or a medium. just a regular person. I have noticed they are more apparent befor someone dies. The closer the person to me the more apparent and frequent I see them.Its more annoying then anything. especially when im running around the house multi-tasking and they get in my way.Not that they could physically stop me, but its like when a cat is always under your feet. That kinda annoying. I dont believe they are demons or negitive. They are just there. I dont bother with them and besides getting in my walking path sometimes, they dont bother with me.I m not religious,or a believer.I know Im not crazy or nuts. It is what it is, they are what ever they are.. :)

shadow people

When someone is going to die I see them the closer the person is the bigger the shadow. Does anyone else see them like that

Shadow People

Most of these people are describing ghosts. Can't they make the distinction? I've never seen a shadow person but I have seen ghosts and there's no similarity according to the description given in the article for a Shadow Person.

Shadow People

If these beings are real, my best guess would be that they're people from an alternate universe attempting to cross into ours. Science HAS verified the existence of alternate universes. So if they exist why wouldn't scientists there try to contact people here?
