Have you ever encountered one?
As a researcher I have received many reports over the years from people who have experienced both types of shadow person appearances; peripheral and direct vision - with direct visual experiences being not too common, most of the reports I receive come from those who have seen them in their periphery. I have also read cases where a person has had a stroke after having a close encounter with a shadow person, as well as hearing of burning ‘finger’ marks following a touch from one of these entities.
However, those scenarios are from a different time in my paranormal research.
Before I set my focus on investigating claims of ghosts and hauntings I did a lot of UFO and 'Alien' research. It was during this period that I first heard of shadow people. It was around the year 1998 when I first heard of beings described very similar to shadow people, but they were not labelled as such. At first, I learned of people experiencing dark 'creatures' darting around their homes, always just out of sight. These creatures were typically human like in shape, and moved more like smoke or a mist. They were hardly ever seen directly.
Soon the reports took on another aspect, these 'Dark Entities' as they were now known (2000-2001), could project a feeling of dread onto a human. A lot of people thought this was something to do with the frequency of human emotion patterns, and the lower frequency entity being able to interfere. At around this time there was a large change in the people I was working with, they moved from a more 'science' (definition used very loosely here) and technology way of investigating, to a more emotion and empathic way of investigating.
Regardless of whether you want to talk about frequency of emotion or not (I did not follow that path personally), reports were coming in that these shadows were able to put in a emotive change within the experiencer. This is true with reports today, however now instead of researching them in the UFO field, I research them in the ‘ghosts and hauntings' field.
Are they ghosts?
I can not tell you that. I can not tell you what they are. It is suggested they are the spirit of a deceased person with a 'black soul'. Others say they are demonic and never were hosted in a human body. The idea that most intrigues me is that they are a spirit and something more of the earth.
What are your thoughts on Shadow People, Shadow Entities, Shadow Masses?
Have you ever experienced one?
