I Keep On Seeing Shadow People


This story pretty much sum up what I'm experiencing now. This happened last February and is been happening until now. Out of the corner of my eye, I would see shadows passing by. One time,  I was plugging in the internet when I saw a shadow of what appears to be a kid pass by my window. I looked outside and there was no one there. I told my brother about this and he said maybe it was the neighbor's kid playing tricks on me.

Another time I was doing the laundry when,  out of the corner of my eyes,  I saw two freakish black like shadow hands reach out from the folded clothes. I immediately turn  around to look but it was gone. This scared the crap out of me and made me turn all the lights on inside the apartment. It would also happen when I'm putting the folded clothes in the closet.

This happens quite a lot so my parents insisted on me consulting a psychiatrist thinking I may have been developing some kind of mental illness. Good news is that, I was negative on all tests except for depression and anxiety.

So the doctor gave me some pills saying it would take care of the shadows I've kept on seeing. Well I guess the pills ain't working because I still see them. The doctor doesn't believe me when I say that maybe some kind of paranormal activity is going on. She keeps on insisting that it's because of my depression and anxiety. But honestly, I'm good at all and don't feel depressed or nervous or anything. Does any of you experience this as well? If so feel free to leave a comment.

Thanks for reading and more powers to YGS!

Reading about what you had experienced here, certainly make me feel it is not just a bout of medical condition but something more to it.
As long as you don't feel threatened by these shadows, do not panic and try to keep yourself focused. Be strong mentally. This would help ward off any approach. But on the contrary, if you feel threatened, it is definitely adviceable to take professional help to get over this. Cleansing, Rituals or any other method in the religion you believe in would help. But do it sooner if you feel threatened and if the fear is taking over you.

Shadow people are fairly well documented as paranormal phenomena go - though there is little concensus on what they really are. Since you have already wisely investigated medical angles and, I believe, ruled them out (I have never heard of mild depression causing hallucinations) - there may well be a paranormal cause to all of this. I think the cleansings are a good idea. Maybe meditation as well - focusing on calming and strengthening yourself.

Hello Zaruje,
I for one believe you are experiencing some paranormal activity because my mom and I have both seen shadow figures move around in my house. You catch them out of the corner of your eye. I didn't say anything until mom complained about it, then I knew I wasn't imagining things. These shadows occurred on and off over a three year period until I broke up with my ex girlfriend Nikki. I truly believe that she was a conduit for all of my recent activity. Thank you for sharing and I hope your cleansing works. K.P.

Hello Zuruje,

Its a scary experience seeing shadows unless its family of course.

I've been seeing shadows and spirits for a long time. Many members here on YGS have too. I've been given lots of great advise. Lady-Glow has suggested a cleansing or blessing. That's a great start.

Jubeele told me about self cleansing. That's been really useful too.

Curious Dee told me about Rookdygins cleansing and shielding method. That's been helping me feel safe. From time to time I still see Steven the spirit, however not as much as I used to.

Keep safe and keep us posted.

Best wishes,
😘 ❤ 😘

Hi lady!

Yes I already did. In fact I'm wearing glasses to help me see better (nearsighted).

Maybe you're right. Maybe I need to do some cleansing since the medication's not working.

Thank you for reading my story.

Z ❤ ❤ ❤

Hello Zaruje - have you get your eyes checked for floaters or for some other condition that can cause these images?

Since the medication prescribed by the psychiatrist hasn't change your condition, perhaps a visit to the optometrist is in order.

If the problem persist, then it might be time to perform a cleansing or blessing of your house in accordance to your personal beliefs.
