The Shadows Are Talking To Me


My husband and 3 year old son moved into a great home built in the 1900's. When I became pregnant with my daughter my son was 3 years old.

One night he came in to me and my husband's bedroom and said can I sleep in here the shadows are talking to me and I can't get back to sleep.

The next day my son started talking about a person named Bobbi.

One morning my son was lying in bed with me and my husband when he said oh Bobbi is here. I asked where and he pointed above us. I went into his room and very strongly told "it" was not welcome and to get out of our house. There was nothing after that until my daughter was a year old.

My son began telling us his bedroom door was opening by itself. He would come into our room talking about the shadows again. I went to my son's room again and told it more strongly to get out of our house.

A year later I developed severe depression and started doing things I normally would not do. My depression progressively got worse. I would sleep for days! I never thought what was happening could be a demon attack because I was confronting "it" to get out.

We moved out of the house to another State. I feel great! My depression is gone and I feel like I have my life back. While living in the house I never thought what was happening to me could be a demon attack. However, after I started feeling better I did some research and learned it is dangerous to challenge a demonic entity. A demon attack can be insidious and can last for years. I do not know what I believe about the house but I am glad I am myself again!

This is tell tale 100% demonic. Dark shadows, fear, night time whisperings, aka magical whisperings, and sudden depression are from Satan. Its foul goal is suicide via depression. Why? Easy; to get a damnation. Catholic Holy water and saying "Jesus and Mary help me" is a great help. I am SO VERY glad it's better, because challenging a demon is a bad idea, and it sometimes does follow them. God bless you and yours.

You have to keep in mind satan/ demons are very manipulate and masters of disguise. They don't always possess people and throw knives.

I believe demons have different "ranks" and their strengths vary. Some are very strong and some aren't. So to say its not a demon isn't necessarily the case. I'm NOT saying it was, I'm just saying don't be quick to rule it out. The important thing is you moved and your life is better because of it. I'm glad to hear your depression is gone and your back to your old self 😊

I am in total agreement with stephy and geetha. You did everything right. I would say you experienced the effect of a negative spirit, or entity. Demons tend to be more destructive with their attacks. I believe you are a very strong, and am glad that you were able to get yourself and your family out of there. It's good to hear that you are feeling better and are happy in your new home. 😊

It wasn't a demon. Shadow people are a form of spirit/ghost that I think are living in their own time without knowing that you can see them. Or an old spirit that hasn't crossed over properly and is still visible. Don't worry about it. They didn't mean any harm and couldn't harm you anyway. They probably don't even know they are dead or that you are there.

Like stephyw2001 said, I'm glad you are feeling better and it's true that depression can be caused by many things and made worse my negative energy.

I give you credit for standing up for your son and going to depression. From a fellow depression survivor, I know how low you can go. Just be glad that you came though it and take it as life lessons and use it to make yourself better.

I think you did the right thing by telling "it" to get out. I wouldn't doubt yourself on that. Depression can be caused by many things, if there is a negative spirit around, I'm sure that made it worse. However, I don't think a demon would just let you sleep. Shadow people maybe? Just lost souls wandering aimlessly? I'm glad you're feeling better though! I think certain places just have bad vibes to them, I'm glad you found a better place!
