RE: Shadow Creatures
Years ago i had 2 experiences with shadow people, ive read so many different theorys on what they could be. One i thought was very interesting, some feel shadow people are some sort of a being from a differnt dimention (as other said). Like for a minute for some reason they over lap and we get a glimps of a huminoid shape. Normally you dont hear of interaction with shadow people, its usually out of the corner of your eye you see them or they pass in front of you quickly.

So a few years back me and a buddy were headed out fishing, we found a real nice little lake behind an old church. It was about 4am in the morning and we drove into the lot in the back of the chuch, it was so dark you couldnt see your hand infront of your face. Right in front of my buddys van a tall figure briskly walked infront of us. Completely black, it was a very dense type of foggy figure. You could see the headlight beams right through it, he slammed on the brakes and we looked at each other like "OMG you see that" type of look. We were both shocked to see this thing, my heart dropped...

Another time ive seen a dark figure was when i was astral projecting, that has happened a few times. Im convinced that it was my mind manifesting this figure when i first exit out of body. Only time ive seen the figure is when im still in my room after and AP exit.

Shadow people / beings are very interesting, its good to see a section on the forum just for it.

As you can Astral Travel then you may be interested in reading "The Astral Plane, It's Scenery, Inhabitants and Phenomena" by C. W. Leadbeater.
one of the best books about the Astral in print and could help you with some of your questions.

You walk in the long grass and wonder why you can not see!!

RE: Shadow Creatures
I have had shadow people in my home as well. When looking down the hallway to our bedrooms, this figure would "lean in and out of the doorway" like they were trying to get our attention. This became more pronounced if there was dirty laundry on the floor. Go figure!!! Maybe they were clean freaks or something. This same person became very obnoxious over time and we had to take steps. Our behavior towards this pain in the behind changed and so did these events.
Never saw any animals though. That's a new one on me.

RE: Shadow Creatures
I don't recall ever seeing one of these at my old house, but the first year I moved to a new home, I had this dream with the the bed-watcher types.

They were surrounding the beds, wearing coats and fedora hats and looking down at me. They looked pretty cartoonish; all I could see of them were their glowing white eyes. I was asleep, so I wasn't thinking straight; but when I woke up I found it unsettling.
I never experienced conscious sleep paralysis as far as I know. The whole perspective of dreaming from the bed was unusual to me at the time.

But I didn't think much of it until I listened to a paranormal show and they spoke of shadow people and the hat man. I don't know if what I saw was just a dream or something else; either way that's the only time I've ever potentially witnessed anything like a shadow thing...

Your point of view is sacred, because you're the only one who has it.

As far as shadow people go, it's odd but they seem to be popping up a lot lately. My sister AND daughter both saw them at around the same time, yet they live hundreds of miles apart and didn't know of each other's experiences.

Daughter saw 3 or 4 around the foot of her bed. She woke up suddenly and sat up. This is when she saw them. They were circling the foot of her bed and appeared to be watching her. She screamed and they didn't disappear. They just stayed there looking. There was another "thing" with them. It was short, and either had a hooded thing on or its hair was long and over the shoulders. THIS one she could see its face. It was seething mad. It looked like it wanted to hurt her and it was scary. After she screamed for a while, her husband came running in and turned on the light. She is aware of both these things and him at the same time, but when he turned on the light, they vanished. They weren't wispy. They looked solid. Husband didn't see them because as he came in, he stumbled and wasn't looking closely.

At around the same time, my sister saw one TWICE reflected in her car window as she was getting in. It was a human shape and it rushed past her behind her. She turned thinking it was the neighbor, but no one was around. Then, when she turned again to get in the car, it did it again. Very clearly a person, but dark and shadow like.

I don't know what they mean, but they aren't a happy thing.

I know this is a very old post but I had a similar experience - there were 4 at the foot of my bed milling around and watching me. They were solid and when they noticed my boyfriend looking at them, they came towards us and only went away (vanished into a corner of the ceiling) when the light was turned on. They were 7 feet tall. I hope your daughter is okay and I'm very sorry she had to go through that. Did she find a solution and/or did they ever go away?

This has struck a chord with me. Our house in Scotland was haunted by, what we described as, a small mischeivous ghost. It had a fondness for pushing bedroom doors open and switching lights on and off when we were trying to sleep. It moved things around and hid keys, books, etc. It also whispered and giggled and my daughters would think there was one of us hiding playfully only to discover no one was there. It liked to jump on the bed and felt just like a cat or a small dog when it did this. We had three cats so it was only if you looked and saw no cat there that you knew it was the ghost again.
We thought it was harmless and I imagined it to be the spirit of a small playful child. However, because it was such an active pest I went around the house, room by room, and asked it not to scare my children or wake us up at night..........BIG mistake!
The activity got worse and worse. Several times I heard thuds and, what I can only describe as an evil sniggering. I still wasn't scared just curious and whenever I went to investigate I never saw anything. One weekend my eldest daughter was away staying with friends and I heard a muffled thud from her bedroom. I stopped and listened at the door, which was closed. I could hear whispering so I tried to open the door and go in but something was holding the handle on the other side. I tried to push the handle down as hard as I could and I could feel the resistance as it was pushed upwards.
I was scared but I never thought of the ghost I honestly thought we had a burgler.
I backed away a few steps, keeping my eyes on the door and called for my partner. He came through, opened the door with no problem, and, of course, nothing there.

So much more to tell I'm going to continue this in another post as this is way too long.
By this time I was starting to be a bit unnerved by it. I didn't want my teenage daughters scared so I just kept reassuring them that it was harmless and if they left it alone it would leave them alone.
It carried on opening doors and locking us out the bathroom..........things carried on as usual really until one of my daughters saw something that terrified her so much she wouldn't stay in the house.

Her bedroom was an attic conversion and it had a velux window. On this particular night it was bright moonlight so she left the blind open and her room was lit by the moon. Nothing seemed amiss and she went to sleep as usual. around 2am she was awakened by whispering and a scratching sound. She saw two figures standing in the moonlight. One she described as the typical shadow/hatman......Very tall and thin and just a densely black shadow. The other was little and dwarflike with a squat body and a big head.....also black shadow like. She says they were taking an interest in something on the dresser under the velux window. Don't know why she feels this but she thinks they were trying to figure out how to work her cd player. They were whispering and prodding at something on the dresser.
She was absolutely terrified. She says she was absolutely frozen with dread and was too scared to move or take her eyes off them. After a few minutes the little being slowly turned his head and looked at her. He smiled the most horrible, evil smile, and turned back to whatever they were doing. She was too terrified to move, scream, or do anything so she closed her eyes and inched the duvet up over her head. Eventually, as it was growing light she peeped out and they were gone.
That was it. She would hardly stay in the house after that. She stayed at friends houses or with family and on the nights she stayed home she slept in her sisters bedroom.

Time passed and we were moving house. The house was all packed up, bedrooms empty, all cleaned and ready to go. On the last night my daughters stayed with my friend and I stayed alone in the house. All that was left were a few boxes and a sofa in the lounge that I was planning to sleep on. I stayed up cleaning until around 11o'clock then put the lights out and snuggled down on the sofa. There was a space behind the sofa and I had some boxes of books, crockery, stuff from the kitchen ready to go in the van in the morning stacked there. I must have slept for a few hours before I was disturbed by someone rummaging through the boxes behind me. I could hear it whispering and sniggering and the rustling of paper as it unwrapped things in the boxes.

I was absolutely terrified. I couldn't move and I was too scared to look. I knew if I got up and made a run for the door it would catch me. I was just too scared to move so I inched the cushion I was using as a pillow from under my head and threw it, without looking, over the back of the sofa. Instantly the sniggering turned to growling and snarling. It was absolutely menacing. I was totally paralyzed. I have never been so scared in my entire life. It growled and snarled for a few minutes, it felt like hours, but must have only been a few minutes......then the snarling slowly faded away.

I waited for a while too scared to move then snuck out the door and spent the rest of the night in the porch.

That thing was not human. Terrifying.

RE: Shadow Creatures
I've had some experience with shadows....when I was in kindergarten there was a shadow man who would come into my room almost every night and scare the heck out of me. I suppose it could be sleep paralysis but I won't go into the details. It felt VERY real and I was terrified until we left that house.
Once at my present house I was sitting on the couch facing my front window when I noticed a shadow on the mini blinds (they were closed as that window faces West and it was just after sunset). There was enough ambient light outside for me to think there was someone on my front porch but it felt odd since I hadn't heard the porch creak like it always does. The shadow moved from the lower right corner of the window, diagonally to the middle left of the window at a slow steady speed and just as I was about to get up and go to the door....the shadow continued at the same speed and trajectory across the mirror that was hanging on the wall between the window and the front door. So it was inside the house and I was looking at it full on. I could sense that it was something bad but thankfully it has not happened again.
But all the time, nearly every day in fact, I see small darting shadows about one to two feet high that go under furniture or around doorways. They aren't always black...sometimes they are various shades of gray and a couple of times they were a tan/buff color. I sometimes think it's my cat until I realize that she's somewhere else. I usually say hello to them and don't feel that they're any threat. Of course I am middle aged so I do think there's a possibility that it's just my aging eyes playing tricks on me. I never see them straight on, like the shadows I described above, just out of the corners of my eyes.

(01-22-2008 10:32 PM)Haunted Wrote:  Several of the places I've lived have had Shadow creatures, just like the name implies they just look like the shadows of someone or something. The first time I actually noticed them was when my youngest son was five years old. He called them Shadow Creatures all the time, when I searched them online, Shadow Creatures are exactly what most people call them.

We lived in a different apartment at that time and the Shadow Creatures were different than the ones we've seen here. The size of them depended on who saw them! Usually always the shadow was about the same size as ever which one of us that saw it.

Most of them were in a human shape, but now and then you'd get a glimpse out of the corner of your eye of what looked like a dog or cat walking by. At times there was even just very small shadows darting across the walls that you'd think were bugs.

We'd came home from the store one day and when we walked in the door, my son said, Look Mom a shadow creature. I barely seen it dart into the wall, but it had been standing at the coffee table and he said it was looking around on the table.

Where we live now we've seen several of these shadows to. The weird thing is that other people have saw the same exact things we've seen. Several of the people I've had visiting me have seen and described the same things we see all the time.

I have one here that is slightly tall and looks sort of skinny, it's always been seen going from the hallway to the kitchen. I've never seen it going the other way or any other place. It makes me kind of wonder if maybe they somehow get stuck in a certain place and keep repeating the same movements over and over.

We also have a "pet" shadow creature, I'd just started seeing it in maybe the past month. It's about a foot tall or less and for some reason I just know it's a cat, or at least a cat like creature. There will be times I see it several times a day, then it will go for days and I don't see it at all. Then it's running around here several times a day again.

These things, what ever they are don't seem to be scarey, they've never made the hair stand up on the back of my neck like some things have. They do get a little annoying now and then though.

I have seen a shadow figure darting back and forth in the hallway leading from kitchen to dinning room it was about 12 at night I was at the kitchen table crocheting and it kept darting back and forth I saw this out of my perehele vision so I stopped crocheting and looked..I got the scare of my life to where I ran to my bedroom that was off the kitchen..once I looked I saw a pair of shoes that were brown about 1940 and a green pair of work pants and I did not look any higher..I ran. http://wp.me/P2B4ZB-2

RE: Shadow Creatures
I moved into a new apartment with my boyfriend at the end of July of this year. We're college students, so he went back home after we moved in to continue working. I spent about 3 weeks here alone. I don't actually physically see anything, but every once in a while I will get this mental image of a shadowy human figure standing in the doorway of either the bedroom or the bathroom. It got to the point where I either had to take medication in order to even sleep, and even then sleep was hard to come by. I ended up visiting him a couple of weeks ago, because it was my birthday and it is cheaper to visit his family than mine. I spent a week there, and had no issues with these mental images. But the second we got home, they started up again.

It gets worse at night, as soon as the sun sets around 7-7:30 pm, and when I am alone. The apartment complex is fairly old, I'd say about 25 years but I can't find an exact date. But from what I can tell, the only major crimes that happen here are car break ins and tires being stolen. I'm just curious if anyone would have an explanation for this, or a suggestion as to what I can do to protect myself/ make these images stop.
