There's a lot of debate over what, who, or when shadow people are. The mystery behind them adds to my desire to continue researching. I'm going to summarize what they look like, where they come from, why they are here, and what powers they have. I list links at the bottom of this article for further reading.
What do Shadow People Look Like?
A shadow person is a black shadow that takes on a somewhat human shape but is not clearly defined. They’re not a solid mass, but you cannot see through them either.
They’re usually lurking in our peripherals, making us do a double-take, but upon second glance, nothings there. The length of time a shadow person stays in someone's peripherals will vary from person to person, but it's never long enough to get a good look at them.
People describe shadow people in very similar ways, as I described above. What varies in their descriptions are the eyes. The eyes are described as either non-existent, red, or green.
Where do Shadow People Come from and Why are They Here?
There is a multitude of answers to these questions. The opinions vary, and I have listed the more popular ones below.
What Powers do They Have?
Some say that shadow people are harmless looky loo's while others go as far as saying they are malevolent creatures capable of causing harm or even killing. The reports are all over the place when it comes to what shadow people can actually do. It may be a shadow by shadow basis. Are all shadow people created equally? I don't think so, but no one knows for sure.
In my own experience, they are an entity that is physically harmless but menacing and negative. They’ve never harmed me and are a nuisance more than anything.
I’ve had shadow people act like looky loo's when I’m trying to go to sleep. One shadow person lunged at me. They’ve given me a quick startle by popping in and out of my vision.
One incident, I had a separate and very negative spirit that was opening all kinds of doors in my house, welcoming anything and everything into my home to cause chaos. During this time, the shadow people were popping up a lot, and they seemed to be more aggressive. This leads me to believe that they can sense energy, and they are affected by it.
When I had the negative spirit in my house, I had to call in a medium to help remove it. The shadow people left as well, even though they weren't specifically addressed. Other times when it was just the shadow people, I’ve been able to clear my house of them on my own.
The fact that I can push them out and also that their behavior changed when in the company of a negative spirit, makes me think they are some sort of negative energy manifesting as a shadow, opposed to alien or time travelers. Of course, one human’s shadow person is not another's, and even though my experience of them is like a mischievous energy, it doesn’t mean all of them are. I also believe that there are entities who can masquerade as a shadow person for whatever reason.
If you have a shadow person experience, I’d love to hear about it, drop a comment below.
