Shadow Figure or Shadow Person.
What are they?
an investigation, have you ever caught a glimpse of some type of dark figure
out of the corner of your eye? This
could be what is called a "shadow
" or person. Some say
that these figures are spirits or ghost of people who have died, but have not
yet crossed over. Others say that they
are just lost souls that remain wandering the earth. Still others say that they are evil and
demons, and then there are the skeptics that say it's just a figment of our
imagination. Maybe they are from another
dimension coming to take a peek at what we humans are doing. With all the ghost
hunter TV shows, horror movies, and stories of ghosts, spirits and the like,
it's hard to say if they are real or not. I
myself have even caught a glimpse of a dark figure that stood behind me, only
to have it disappear just as fast. So,
was the dark figure a shadow person or just a figment of my imagination? I don't know for sure.
a Paranormal Investigator, I often wonder what a shadow person could possibly
want and why they watch us. I think they
are trying to re-establish a time when they were alive or maybe they don't know
their gone and I often feel like I am invading their space.
of shadow people sightings regularly come from all around the globe. Despite the fact that these sightings date as
far back as ancient times, there is not much known about this phenomena.
following information I think we know about this phenomena, even though it has
not been proven.
The Look of A Shadow Person:
people report being able to view shadow people straight on. Usually they are seen in one's peripheral
vision. However, there have been a few
reports of people having these shadowy figures walk directly in front of them
and interact with them. There have been
many different reports as to their size. Everything from very small, to larger than a
person. One report that remains a standard
is that they have no visible facial features. Some photographs show shadow people that
appear to be clothed in a hooded robe or coat, and in others, they do not
appear to be wearing anything.
The Characteristics of Shadow People:
general consensus is that they are mean in nature. Shadow people sightings are regularly coupled
with a feeling of fear and uneasiness. Additionally,
some people have reported feeling extreme anger, agitation, and upset. Because of the negative associations, many
believe that they might be demonic in nature.
None of these characteristics have actually been proven. I personally think that if you are having these
kind of feelings then it is because of the actual feeling you got by either the
surprise of seeing a shadow person or because it scared you. I personally don't think that they are evil or
demonic in nature at all. I think they
just have such an emotional attachment to the area that they can't move on.
Are Shadow People Ghosts?
believe that they are not. This is
because their actions differ greatly. Many
ghosts freely make themselves known when possible, while shadow people hang around
in the corners and seem to wish not to be seen at all. This is quite clear due not only to the
sighting reports, but also the photographs they are captured in. Most ghost sightings are connected with either
an image of a person, or at the very least, the feeling that the spirit trying
to make contact was once human in appearance. This isn't at all what people say about shadow
people. This could simply be the human opinion
that is based on the alarming appearance Shadow People project. It is natural for people to view a dark figure
as something that is not ghostly, especially since the bulk of ghost sighting
reports are linked to white, glowing figures?
So what are they then?
I simply do not know. While they are certainly here for some reason
or another, apparently, they do not want or can, make these reasons known or
clear to us. As a Paranormal Investigator I will leave all my options open when
it comes to shadow people. I do think
that I would classify these shadow people as ghost and spirits. I don't think
that every shadow captured in a picture or video is a shadow person. I will leave it up to the ghost or spirit. I
think when they decide to let us know the answers, they will tell us, but until
then I will continue on in my search for the truth. ~ Tracy
