You may see him outside your window, or sometimes he comes inside. People from all over the world know about the shadow man. This see-through dark figure stands around 7 or 8 feet tall and will appear in your life when you are vulnerable.
Sometimes you will hear some kind of an unusual sound. It may be a whistle, a creak, a knock, a howl, or some other noise that gets your attention. Once you are searching for the source of the noise, you may find him staring at you.
He will often stand outside of your door or window, beckoning you to come out. He does not talk, at least with any mouth. In fact, he doesn’t really have a mouth. He is a dark mist that fades in and out. This thing is a mass of darkness, almost like black smoke. Right before you see him, you will feel static electricity. Your ears may close up, as if you are now underwater. The atmosphere changes. Some people say it is like time stands still when they see him.
Whatever he is, he scares people. Not one person I talked to said that this entity was good. Instead, they all declared that the shadow man is bad. It was almost as if he somehow sucks energy from those he encounters. More often than not, he is outside your home at first. However, he can and will come inside. The most common place he is seen is in a bedroom or a closet. Maybe that is where our fear of ‘someone hiding in the closet’ comes from. Those who have seen him in the closet say he stands in the corner and does not move as they walk in. The scenario goes like this. As the unsuspecting person puts clothes away or grabs something, all of a sudden, the witness sees this smoky-type figure standing there with its head to the side.
When I was trying to get a good description of this thing, one person told me shadow man cocks his head to the side like Michael Myers does when he kills his victims. I asked if head titling seemed like a curiosity. Was shadow man simply curious about us? The answer was a firm ‘no.’ All of the witnesses said the head tilting seemed like mocking. It was like the shadow was making fun of them because it knew it was scaring them.
Other witnesses saw this thing when they were in bed or in simply in their bedrooms. Again, shadow man likes to stand with his back to the corner. People will wake up and see this mass, darker than dark, standing in their rooms. Even after letting their eyes adjust, the dark thing is there. When they turn on the lights, mostly they do not see him. Yet, there are cases where people have turned on the lights and the dark entity is right in front of them.
People report feelings of sheer terror upon seeing him. The thing seems to grow darker and more solid when people get scared. It seems like it feeds on fear.
- It likes to target those who are alone
- It comes when you are vulnerable
- It hides
- It will taunt you
- It scares you on purpose
Some people even report experiencing missing time when they see shadow man. One woman said:
It was like someone was whistling outside my door. I got up and looked out the window…it was there. I’d say it was almost dark outside. The street lights were coming on. I saw this black shadow thing. It was maybe 7 feet tall. I’m not sure. It scared the daylights out of me. Next thing I know, I’m in the recliner. I have no memory of how I got in the chair.
I find this part very interesting because missing time is more commonly associated with alien abduction than spirit contact. Is this thing an extraterrestrial?
A lot of people have seen these shadow creatures. I have seen them. Lots of other psychics have seen them too. Of all the paranormal entities, I’d say the shadow entities may be the most common. Though you should note that not all of them act like this shadow man. The behaviors of others are different.
What do you think? Is this thing a spirit? It is an alien? Have you seen this thing? If so, feel free to contact me. We all want to get to the bottom of this. We all want to know what is going on in the paranormal world.
