This was another subject I was asked to touch on and go over again. But first I have to say... I can't help but often wonder if a lot of these claims are simply trick of the eye or mind over matter. I mentioned last week on my sleep paralysis blog very briefly on shadow people going hand-in-hand with sleep paralysis a lot of the time but I didn't get to touch on it very much but I will discuss it a little more in this article. If you watch all the ghost shows on TV like I know that some people do and they become very much obsessed with it and they go out wanting to investigate on their own so they're wanting to see something. They're not objective enough to be real good about trying to find any other possibilities to debunk the situation. People want to see something so badly when they go want to go swore or these amateurs are investigations where you have to pay to investigate it's hard for a lot of people to be objective. I'm not saying everyone but a good amount. They will refuse to debunk most things. Just because someone tells you a place is haunted doesn't mean that it is. Not to mention do you truthfully want to take the risk of attachments something following you home? It's a big risk to take. It's hard to put something back once you've opened that door. I assure you it is.
But I surely believe they exist and I'm honestly not surprised by the rise in claims. They were a issue when my dad was alive and he dealt with quit a few. They are not easy to get rid of. It's very difficult however, I disagree there's no hope so you have to relocate and hope the entity doesn't follow. I just don't believe my God can ever lose against these. It's written already what their doom is and their time is near and they are scared and trying to grab as many souls as possible. You have to remember I'm a Biblical Demonologist so I look at it from this point of view and I respect everybody's opinion this is just my mine. Some people don't understand there are different kinds of demonology there's even Satanology I had to study back in late 90's when Christian colleges offered courses on Biblical Demonology. It's not a degree, just a certificate of completion after 3 years. But it's hard to find many churches or schools nowadays willing to have someone teach it entirely due to the fact they think it makes them a expert and gives people false hope. It takes more than just a few years of study to deal with anything demonic.
What are Shadow People?
There are such a diverse amount of types. We may never know exactly where these vile entities are from. People are seeing shadow beings all over the world with increasing interest in the subject. Some people feel that they come from inter-dimensional worlds, others think that they are ghosts, and some other people see them as first, they appear only out of the corner of your eye, furtively darting out of view when you turn to look straight at them, but are now gone. Did you really see them? Shaking the image out of your head, you assume that it was a peculiar anomaly of your eyesight, however the feeling still lingers that someone continues to watch you. For weeks, months or years, the fast dark movements in your peripheral vision are dismissed until it finally happens without warning. You see the shadow directly in front of you: face to face, blacker than black, darker than dark, like a void that has punched a hole into the inky fabric of night itself.Sometimes it appears as the mere silhouette of a person, usually male, but generally lacking any other characteristics of gender. There are "hatted" shadow beings, hooded shadows, cloaked ones, and solid or wispy, smoky types.
Some are seen only from the waist up. Others clearly have legs that are seen fleeing from their observers. They dart into corners, through walls, into closets, or behind television sets, bushes, and buildings. Sometimes they simply fade into the dark recesses of the night. Lacking in the description is one common denominator unifying the many different types of shadow people, except that they are "intensely dark". . A number of witnesses believe that shadow people act as benevolent guardians watching us, just as many witnesses have no doubt of the evil soul-wrenching potential of these beings
Red Or Yellow Eyed Shadow People
Very possibly the most frightening of all shadow people experiences is that of the red/yellow eyed entity. This shadow person is described as having glowing red or glowing yellow eyes which cause the the person to feel paralysis and extreme terror. They have been described as the embodiment of "pure evil." Some claim they were wide awake and cross paths with one of these and they felt nothing but fear and paralysis they literally could not move others passed out due to the horrible vibes that these things tend to omit. All evil (in my humble opinion) are often found in a place where a lot of sadness and depression is going on or a tragic death had occurred. Or attach themselves to someone who is having reoccurring trauma, any type of verbal or physical abuse, drugs, alcohol, murder, rape, etc. It has been reported that these guys are to blame for SUNDS (Sudden Unexpected Nocturnal Death Syndrome). A lot of these beings tend to feed upon negative energies within the home. It has also been known that they follow people for a few days up to several years!
The Hat Man is a peculiar human-like being described earlier. While the experiences and description of this type of entity closely matches that of the plain shadow person, there are noticeable differences. The most notable and obvious being the inclusion of a wide brimmed hat as witnessed, or the being will be wearing a hood. Many say The Hat Man seems to exhibit a large degree of curiosity towards the witnesses involved in sighting it. There have been many claims and reports of dread and/or paralysis associated with this one too. I've witnessed these two types I'm describing many times in my life sadly involved with cases or helping personal friends and being harassed myself by them at one point to scare me off cases. People see shadow people during sleep paralysis almost 80% of the time I believe. You can find thousands of claims on this on the Internet. And YouTube has many videos about this as well. Feel free to research this. You'll see it's running rampant.
After doing some digging I came across this information: Frederick van Eeden, the 19th century philosopher who coined the term “lucid dream,” writes that his lucid-control dreams are often followed inexplicably by “demon dreams.” He does not elaborate anywhere in his writings, leaving us only with that haunting phrase. Expert Scott Sparrow writes that at the height of his experimentation with lucid dreams, “all kinds of angry people began showing up in my dreams, and turning rather demonic to boot.” This makes now two experts who are separated by well over a century noticing a correlation between controlling their lucid dreams and the appearance of “demons” and angry dream figures.
The following are some experiences people are sharing I found on random forums. You can find thousands of them and people sharing experiences they had as well.....
"I had visitations as a child from age of 4 until I was 12, it occured on a nightly basis. I remember being terrified of going to bed because I knew what awaited me. My experiences did not occur while I was asleep however. I would wake each night at whatever time and see it without fail, dark and looming, either heading towards my bed, walking away from it or usually standing beside it. Each time I would be fully awake. I will never be able to describe the sheer terror I felt each night. I would will myself not to move or make a sound, terrified that if I did, it would somehow encourage this being to touch or attack me. I would will myself back to sleep, it's amazing what unearthly terror can do. I am relieved to say it never touched me once. I think I would have remembered if it had. I shared a large room with my sister and two other cousins during this period of my life and no one else ever saw this dark entity. I quit talking about it out of fear of being ridiculed by the adults in the home who did not believe me. Yet they discussed other supernatural events that happened in the home with ease. I didn't understand why my pleas for help were shrugged off.
I once shared my experiences with someone I view as my mentor. He had similar experiences as a child. His thoughts on this issue were interesting. He told me I was never touched because of "Fear" and that mirrors are often very fearful things and that these "creatures" were remnants of our energy form of what we might call "darkness". I'm sure most would find this hard to understand or accept but it's his take on it and I respect that.
Needless to say, I am happy these visitations stopped. An old great-grandmother was visiting and I shared my experiences and fears with her. She encouraged me to pray and put a bible under my pillow at night, which I definitely started doing that very night. Voila! I never saw it again."
"Hello to everyone
"My experience coincides perfectly with this thread. My first experience was about a month ago or so during the early AM hours when my partner just left for work. It occured within the next 20 minutes after he left, but ONLY lasted a few minutes, I Think. The second experience was worse and it happened a few days ago. My partner left for work at the PM hour I was in bed proceeding to go back to sleep when I was stuck in that awake/ asleep stage. I sensed something coming to the room and in my mind I KNEW it was happening again. The shadow is male, it feels male but not familiar to "our kind". I was lying in bed it sat next to my hip, both our hippings touching. At this point I was already paralysed, unable to move. I also get a very drowsy feeling inside me, a very heavy pressure over me. My eyes get so heavy to the point they feel they will close at any moment. The shadow leaned inward towards me, I could never ever see its face only from the waist down, my head can't hold up enough to see a face and even when I did it was blurred out. This thing drew itself closer to me not saying anything, I could feel its chest on mine and its face before me... My eyes were looking down, as my head felt too heavy to even lift. At this point in my head I told myself to say " God please help me God" But the words just could not form out of me. Instead I was able to barely and very heavily may I add, lift my right hand almost in slow motion, and pushed this thing away on the face. I pushed and I litterally said " no no no no ". After which THAT is what woke me up. Immediately after waking, I felt very light, the heavy pressure was lifted and I knew it was gone... I just did not know for how long. I truly do not wish for this thing to ever visit me again ever. The worst feeling in my life so far is being immobilized by this force. Please if anyone can reply to this I would appreciate it. Indeed I am taking the "smudging" idea seriously... My partner and I will do this soon. Does anyone else know of anything else that can be done?"
There are hundreds of testimonies online. Some so very disturbing. But like I said about sleep paralysis just keep repeating the name of Jesus even if you can't speak think it in your head and they will flee. When you research this you'll read so many testimonies claiming that it worked. What do people think about that when people say that was the only thing that worked but many people disagree? It's just one of those things no one really has solid answers to yet. Because of what my faith is I'm not surprised it works but everybody's different.
I hope this has help you.
