I know this is crazy but...
there are some things that can be learned, I found someone that had a bit of the quirk, and I taught her how to use her energy, she can almost shield herself and can send energy to people, which is far more than she would have been able to do without me.
I'm not really suggesting that -everyone- could learn, but the people that have at least a spark, might be able to learn -something- and then they might be able to use that for some sort of good.
Some can be taught to a degree, but from my travels it seems that people are either like you and me, have a little bit, or nothing. Very few of the people Ive tried to teach could do much, in that its just been easier to do it for them.

Ive also met many people with a little who then try to do selfish things which backfire on them.

I guess maybe I should try my hand again at healing so to speak.

healing comes in use sometimes, though generally you need another person to practice on after a point, so that makes it a bit of trouble to learn

I have seen a few selfish people along the way, generally they backfire on themselves, or I shut them down, either way, they tend not to last long, not that I'm complaining about that.
I don't really think it's crazy that you think that there are a lot more spirits everywhere then everyone thinks, I know people that lived years ago many different ones in houses filled with similar things or them...

Its not so much that I think they are, it's that they're sort of everywhere all the time when I become vulnerable, and sometimes even when I'm not, and the fact that they're.. whatever they are. I mean clearly people do not normally see these things, and some of the things I do are clearly not normal things. Its the main reason I made this thread after all, as well as it doubling as a desperate attempt to contact someone that.. might be like me in some way. I don't know If these things are healthy or unhealthy, whether I am crazy or not, and honestly, I doubt I will find much of an answer.

Its frustrating, dangerous, and I don't really have any way to fix it beyond dealing with whatever comes my way, but isn't that like life in a strange way?

sorry I haven't visited in a long while, I should visit more often.
Well, glad to have you back.

Howdy all,

I started trying to read this entire thread, but that has proven more time-consuming than I first realized. Stitches, I can't tell you whether or not you're crazy, but I can tell you that they are NOT hallucinations. There are enough people who have seen the shadow people to rule that out. I know the first time I saw one, I hadn't even heard of the phenomenon, so the likelihood that it was merely power of suggestion is slim to none. And then I would see them regularly for several years after, until I learned to "tune out" their existence. Though, for the most part, I only ever saw the no-detail silhouette rather than full-on apparitional forms. The only exceptions being when I was a kid, I remember a guy who would walk out of the wall in the back of my closet. I never thought it was anything out of the ordinary and I don't remember ever interacting with him, he was just there and it seemed normal. I do remember referring to him at some point to my mother, and she told me there was nobody there. I don't remember seeing him again after that until many years later when I was babysitting my young nieces and nephew.

I had just put them to bed and kept hearing them talking. Naturally, my response was to remind them they're supposed to be sleeping, not talking. My oldest niece kept yelling at her brother to shut-up and I kept hearing him whispering. I finally got up and walked towards their bedroom door, directly across the hallway from my own. My niece looked at me and said, "Bubba won't shut up."
I looked at my nephew sitting at the foot of his bed facing their closet and took a couple steps towards him and asked, "hey Bub, what are you doing?"
My niece responded for him, "he's talking to the guy in the closet."
Naturally, I had to inquire, "there's a guy in your closet? Does he live in there?"
To which she replied, "he comes out of the wall." Just as she said that, an image of a man's face flashed in my mind the way your mind creates an image when you remember what someone looks like, only instead of seeing that person in a familiar setting, it was just a face surrounded by darkness. I did not recognize the face, though it seemed familiar. As the face flashed in my memory, I got a bit of a chill and got the sense that there was a presence of something there as every single hair on my body stood on end.
I asked my nephew what they (he and the man in the closet) were talking about.
He shrugged his shoulders and replied, "I don't know... just stuff."
I asked them both (my niece and nephew), "and you guys both see him?"
My nephew nodded in agreement and my niece responded with a "mmm-hmm."
"And you guys aren't scared of him at all," I continued.
"No, he's nice," my niece said as I watched my nephew shake his head 'no'.
"Can Rayna see him too?" I asked her.
She let out a split second giggle before answering, "oh she LOVES him."
Obviously, I felt the need to go question my other niece, hoping she would understand, seeing as she was still only a year old. So I told my older niece and my nephew, "well, tell the guy in the closet 'good night' and that you have to go to bed now." I then entered the living room where my younger niece was in her crib. She perked right up when she heard me come down the hall and stood up to greet me. I knelt down and asked, "hey Rayna... do you know the guy in the closet?"
She laughed and said, "yeah, he's funny." Now keep in mind, that even though she was smarter than the average 1-year old and could speak in full, yet short, sentences, she didn't seem to be capable of lying at that point. Whenever we'd ask if she did something that she knew she would get in trouble for, she would cry and own up to it or immediately run away and hide. As I thought about for a bit after all of this did I faintly recall the guy who would walk out of my closet. Fairly certain it was the same individual.

Now this reply is starting to become rather lengthy and my hands are beginning to really hurt, I'll cut this short for now.

Plus, I have a family reunion to attend very soon and can't wait to talk to my younger niece about it. Doubt she'll remember, but my oldest niece and nephew have told me they have no memory of it. Though, last time I brought it up with my older niece, she looked like she was having a vague recollection of it, though it didn't seem to piece all of itself together for her. Then again, she has repressed memories, so I didn't want to try to make her remember by pushing into the repressed area of her mind.

Anyway, best wishes to all, I'll be back on here again sometime soon.

Until then,

I'm the youngest in my immediate family, and never had to babysit, so I never really knew if little kids could see them, though I have heard stories like that often enough.

As for myself, I only notice that my animals will sometimes stare at the spirits that I see, and I often wonder if they can see them too. I have noticed this with pet rodents, dogs, horses, and turtles, since I have at some point have experienced spirits around them and noticed that they did in fact, look in that particular direction and stare. I really wouldn't know for other animals, though I suspect birds might see them as well.

I believe that I've already mentioned that I have met some other people that may have been able to see them in some form or another, or at least feel them, as to whether children are more susceptible to that sort of thing as opposed to teens or adults, I wouldn't really personally know. However, due to my experiences, I would say that it was far more of an issue when I was young as opposed to now. Whether it was because I was far more "open" to that kind of experience, just didn't know how to protect myself, or a mixture of both remains to be seen. I often had difficulty sleeping at night because it was easier to see them in the dark.. oddly enough. I suspect its due to less distraction being available to ignore them, or alternatively, the analytical side of me would say that it was due to less distraction and an over-active imagination going hog wild on what was basically an open canvas, a.k.a the pitch black darkness of my room.

I have seen recurring spirits and I have seen ones that do repetitive actions. One in particular, looked somewhat like a girl with long hair, she would simply sit huddled up in this particularly bare sandy spot outside of a library, and would sometimes jerk up her head to watch me walk past, she never moved beyond that, and never walked around. I saw her almost every time that I passed by that area, (though there were rare occasions where she just was not there at all) and I often wondered why it (or she?) was there, but of course, there was never an answer to be found.

It is nice to hear stories from other people, but it is important to always have a skeptical mind about things in order to have a healthy mind. Additionally, sorry this thread is getting so long, It might be a bit of a slog to get through, but I can't really help with that, I'm still happy that I get replies at all to be honest aha~
