The Shadows


So this happened a couple months ago. I was riding the bus to go to school. The bus driver was picking up the kids and when he turned around a curve, I saw a shadow that wasn't on the ground or anything, behind a tree.

At first I thought that some people were probably hiding behind the tree but when we got to the other side of it no one was there. I thought I could have just imagined things but then I saw it again on the road just after 5 minutes later. I don't think I have seen it right because I didn't have my glasses with me but I swear I saw something strangely odd. That was the last time I saw it that day

But then again it shows up the next day in my room at night, while I was going upstairs. I saw a show figure of an old man running across from me with a blink of an eye. I began to get scared so I decided to sleep with the lights on in the living room. Of course my back was hurting the next day and I didn't get that much sleep because I was horrified

From that day on, I can still see it. I don't know what it is. And I don't think I want to know, because I'm afraid to know what it really is. I don't know if it's the shadow that leads us to hell or something that I'm just imagining things I can't explain. Either way, I want it out of my head and my mind.

First off... If it is not trying to physically harm you in anyway it is probably not a demon. I think though that maybe you should try to communicate with it too see what it wants. If it really is bothering you I suggest you ask it to leave and see if that helps. I'm slowly losing my fear of ghosts but then again I don't even know if I have seen one to begin with. However if you do realize it is a demon get your house blessed. Also look online on how to keep ghosts away, that may help.
Good luck

I would do some research online or go to the library. I have heard of many experiences involving these shadow people. I here they are mostly in your peripheral vision, but I have also heard of cases otherwise. When I got old enough to understand that I was experiencing the paranormal, I began to do research and I read several books. Sometimes these "things" won't go away, but with the knowledge of what they are and what you should do, you will eventually lose fear of these things. Again, read books and do your research. Good Luck. ❤ Jasmin
