Shadow PeopleThis is a featured page


Shadow People,The - Mythical Creatures GuideThe Shadow People (also known as shadow ghosts, shadow figures, shadow beings, shadow men, or shadow folk) are supernatural shadow-like humanoid figures that, according to believers, are seen mostly in peripheral vision. They are commonly regarded in modern folklore and paranormal popular culture as malicious or evil spirits.
The Shadow People are typically described as black humanoid silhouettes with no discernible mouths, noses, or facial expressions; child-sized humanoids; or shapeless masses that sometimes change to human like form and featuring eyes that are either glowing or not discernable. Movement is said to be quick and disjointed, and some stories describe the visible outline of a cloak, or a 1930s style fedora hat.

Various authors and paranormal-themed web sites have drawn beliefs and speculation regarding The Shadow People from religion, parapsychology, metaphysics, cryptozoology, demonology, and the occult, proposing that Shadow People represent a thoughtform (egregore), ghost or demon that was created by events in which extreme physical/emotional stress/trauma has taken place, have been purposefully summoned through black magic or other occult practices, or are creatures who exist on a separate plane of existence that occasionally overlaps with ours.The Shadow people are also thought to be two-dimensional beings that look thin when turned to the side.

I would like to see if anyone has more information on whether shadow people can be made from dark/black magic.

I use to work at a clinic a few years back and I would see things at night. Almost always the same place but their not the only things I've experienced while working there.

Where do you get your information?

I have seen Shadow people since I was younger and now so does my nephew. Shadow people are not all bad, some actually play jokes on you trying to make you laugh or just spook you while you are watching a movie. The fact that people are saying they are all evil is sad. I have seen them with my own eyes and so has my animals. Only one dog growled at them because a new one came into the house. I have a voice recording of one actually answering me when I was very upset because they hid when I came to look. I have shadow dogs or hellhounds or demon dogs, whatever you want to call them, following me. I enjoy having them come to me because they are watching over me and not out to hurt me.

I know Shadow people are real, just as I know many other creatures are real, very very real in fact but the fact that people are scared to believe they could be good instead hunt them down without understanding them. and No I do not practice the arts, I have many beliefs and embrace the fact that these creatures are here to help me.
