Hello everybody, I would like to bring to your attention a phenomenon which has occurred in Central Italy back in 2015, when a Paranormal Research Group ventured up on the Sibillini Mountains and witnessed the appearance of a GIANT shadow resembling the profile of the legendary Sibyl of the Apennines.
At the time, nobody paid much attention to that event, but months later a journalist contacted the group and published an article with the pictures, which went viral (more than 11,000 views and over 15,000 shares on FB in one night).

One year later, in 2016, the area of the Sibillini Mountains was struck by an unprecedented series of quakes that shook the earth for two months and destroyed many towns. People immediately linked that "crying shadow" to the earthquake, suggesting that the Prophetess had come out from behind the veil of the myth to warn us about the upcoming wrath of nature. Views of the picture went up to more than 120,000, and some misleading information about the actual date of the event prompted the Paranormal Research Group to make a public video stating the reality of their experience.

In 2017 a book was written about the quakes by a famous Italian Journalist and the CRY OF THE SIBYL (As the picture came to be known) was included in the volume.

Later an Argentinian website translated the article in Spanish. Finally the Group has published the English version of their article into their official website. I have been following the matter and I wanted to share this with you guys in the Forum, just to see if you are aware of a similar occurrence happened elsewhere in the past. Also, I would like to hear your take on the numerology study that this group allegedly did BEFORE going up there to see that incredible phenomenon.
Here is the video Interview (unfortunately it is all in Italian, but the picture should be shown):


The pictures available are two, one in full size to show how big the shadow was compared to the mountain, and another one showing the CU of the Sibyl's profile:

I am not sure if I can post the link of the Research Group where you can read the full article, but if I can, just let me know and I will post the link.
Hope you guys will find this thread interesting!

Wrath of nature. Well I am not surprised since humanity have been harming nature badly. Just a months ago, someone posted how our oceans was full of plastics we dumped.

There is a reason why many Native American tribes give prayers to nature spirits.

Now nature spirits are angry at us.

Hi there! I thought the same thing, if you look at the way the face is distorted in a clear scream...it has a sort of dramatic beauty, as if whatever incarnated that manifestation at that moment wanted to show its real, deep suffering. At least, I see it as a suffering cry, not so much as a raging scream. It comes to mind Plato's myth of the cave, and all his metaphors between what we really see (shadows on the wall) and what really is (the world of ideas).

As you said, this might only be the beginning. If Earth uses these plain signs to communicate with us, it means we reached the bottom...

After hundreds of thousands of years Mother Nature has been throwing earthquakes, floods, hurricanes, poisonous creatures, sharks, bears and lions at us suddenly she cant take what shes dishing out? I say tough luck you moody hag!

I'm going to burn some styrofoam and pave over some forests and continue to fight the war of oppression she has waged upon our people for far too long!

Earth, like everything in the Universe, follows a specific pattern which repeats itself with some minor changes. Prophecies have been known to warn humanity about critical passages in the evolutionary path of the Universe. This year huge quakes were registered in the Middle East as well as in South America (couple of weeks ago?).

However I believe that the warning is not really aimed at us, or not only at us. There is a bigger picture to consider and, in it, we are just a speck. My point is that no matter what we do to the Earth, it is not OUR doing that will determine its ultimate destiny...

Well there are mountains...and over the mountain a shadow...and the shadow you can take it as a shadow, if you like.
If you don't see neither the mountains nor the shadow, you are probably not meant to see it

The above is the link of the article that went viral in Italy btw. Sorry guys there is no English version but in the following days I'll be posting bit and pieces of the English report by the Research Group which took that photo.

Cheers

Interesting. Being a typical westerner I am (sorta) publicly skeptical of nature spirits (etc) as superstitious twaddle... having lived in a series of "haunted" residences and having felt and seen odd "things" in the wilderness and in my garden, privately (or anonymously as on this site) I am quite positive they exist... in some manner.

And I bet they are suffering due to our wanton destruction.

Fascinating account I hadn't been aware of... unsettling and eerie and not readily explainable by what we think we know. Thanks for the info!

Hi there! Thanks for your comment, obviously if you had such various experience connected with the spiritual world or the Little People you may actually "see" what lies behind that shadow. The legend of the Sibyl in the Apennines is remarkable in that no scholar in the Ancient World ever included in the list of the Classic Sibyl (10, then 12), however the rumors of a sorceress dwelling within the depths of the Sibillini Mountains spread since the XV century. The first who told about this was an Italian, Andrea de Barberino, then followed by a Frenchman, Antoine de la Sale.
But let me post an extract from the Research Group's article here:




Whereas the legends about the Lake of Pilate and the Mount Vettore are recorded in documents dating back XIV century, the Sibyl of the Apennines appears in the medieval chronicles with two writings published in 1410 (Andrea de Barberino's "Il Guerrin Meschino") and 1420 (Antoine de la Sale's "Queen Sibyl's Paradise"). The first is written in the form of a knightly poem; it tells about Guerrino, knight errant, and the sorceress Alcyna, banned by God and exiled into a subterranean realm whose entrance would be in the mountains, somewhere near the city of Norcia. At the hermitage of San Leonardo, the hermits attempted every possible way to discourage Guerrino from ascending to the Cave of the Sorcereress Alcyna, but he was determined in his decision. He took on a ragged and slippery trail, which ran along rocky crests looking over bottomless ravines, until he arrived at a waterfall and, exhausted, fell asleep. To his awakening follows the "preparatory" encounter with Macco, the giant snake, and all the adventures within the realm of Alcyna, which compose the entire poem. In the case of La Sale, which to some extent proposes the adventures of Guerrin Meschino, he also collects local folklore regarding the descending of the knights into the kingdom of fairies, via a cave located near the crown of the mount (Sibilla). The episodes narrated by La Sale are four, the longest and most detailed one being that of the knight and his squire who reach the Fairies' Kingdom, live there for a year, then go back to the surface. But later, having the Pope refused to concede them the absolution, they return to the magic kingdom for never coming back again. About the other three stories, one is about five local town folks who enter the Sibyl's Cave; another tells of two german gentlemen led by visionary priest Antonio Fumato, and the last is the chronicles of the "Lord of Pacs" who intends to find his brother, who had disappeared into the cave a year before. So, who the Sibyl of the Apennines really is?

Hi, yes you are exactly right! For those who are familiar with the legend of the Sibyl, that ancient Sorceress or Prophetess was depicted as wearing a veil or long, loose hair. The shadow outlines a feminine figure looking to the right. You can see the nose and the open mouth in the act of uttering something, at first sight seems a scream. About the hair, I believe there is something over it that could in fact be a veil.

I have spoken with the guys who actually saw and photographed that shadow, they said it appeared out of nowhere and stood there for several minutes before fading away. They looked on the opposite side to see what could have caused that shadow, but saw no clouds, no mountains higher than that where the shadow was, and the sun was about to set behind the peaks.

There is a mountain in front called Mount Sibilla (Mount Sibyl) where the legend of this elusive, out-of-the-chronicles character stemmed. Here is another piece from the Research Group's article describing the legend of the Sibyl's Cave:




Here is how Antoine de la Sale in his, "Queen Sibyl's Paradise", describes the entrance of the cave as it is presented before his eyes on May 13, 1420 during his ascension to the Mount Sibilla: "...And so, following the winding trail which leads up to the mountain peak, in front of the rock that they call the crown of the mount where the entrance of the cave lies...to the right is the entrance, small, of the shape of a shield, narrowed on top, larger at the base. To the front there is a rock, and those who wants to venture inside must lower themselves to the ground and proceed sliding, feet first, until finding a tiny, squared room to the right of the ingress, where stone-carved seats are seen all around. It measures between eight by ten foot in length, height, and width; there is a circular opening as wide as the head of a man, which let in only a faint light, due to the thickness of the mountain. Coming out of this room, those who wants to continue must go back to their right; however it is necessary to descend feet ahead, for there is no other way to move inside this tiny, little, and steep cave..." The direct experience of the French writer ends here, even though he reports how some young fellows from Montemonaco, venturing into the tunnel to the right of the first room, arrived to a corridor swept by a very strong wind. Frigthened by the force of the elements, they made a quick return to the surface. Two German gentlemen, escorted by priest Antonio Fumato, succeeded – according to La Sale – in passing through the wind-swept tunnel, and crossed the bridge over the abyss, passed the two blazing-eyed dragons, until reaching the "...Metal doors that slam day and night...", that is, the true entrance of the Sibyl's underground Kingdom. Although Pope Gregorio XI (but for some philologists should be Urbano VI), on about 1377, ordered to have the access of the Mount Sibilla's crown destroyed, so to keep people from reaching the cave, and had the very entrance filled up (with stones or boulders?), La Sale testifies that at the time of his ascension (1420) the opening was "cleared" and it was possible to enter at least into the first room. Moreover, he observed and noted symbols and words carved into the stone, and seemed to have recognized a German and an English names among those travelers who had been there before him.


Many said it is an unprecedented appearance, but I am still looking for similar phenomena occurred in the past somewhere else...

i have seen reports in the past of humanoid shapes seen in the sky
the most famous was the cloud man last year

Are you referring to the face in the cloud during the hurricane Irma?
I have seen that too, taken by Denis Farmer. In that case it was the Air Element but I didn't hear of any legend connected to Grand Falls, Canada, which could link the face to the place.

In the case of the Sibyl's Shadow, we have a feminine profile in the same place where for centuries legend have that a Sorceress inhabited the depth of the mountains.

It is a crucial difference in my opinion, although that cloud formation per se was astonishing too.

Cheers

The Saturday, July 4th, 2015 is a theosofic 1+9 or 1, symbol of unity, beginning, the Unum, and corresponding to the XIX card of the Tarots: The Sun. On that day the Earth passed exactly between the Sun (Symbol of light) and Pluto (a chthonian symbol), that is, between two opposing symbols which needed a catalyst to connect and generate the Third Element. Saturday is consecrated to Saturn whose elements are the earth and the "fixing" Lead metal. According to the Qabbalah, its corresponding Sephira is the third one, BINAH, Ionic symbol of the Great Mather (The Earth symbol of all), meaning comprehension, understanding, and associated to the hermetic "Water Root". Just to give an idea of the esoteric geometries which exist within the Sibillini mountains, let's observe the lines crossing the area that we have explored: 1. Lake of Pilate, Sibyl's Cave and the Infernaccio Gulch are perfectly aligned along the North-South directrix. 2. Taking the Cave-Lake segment, and drawing its perpendicular, an isosceles triangle forms, with its vertex pointing West. At the center of the triangle there is the Mount of the Cross. 3. Taking the perpendicular segment from the center of the triangle to the base, it becomes the base of a new triangle, whose sides converge right on the Mount Priora (Pizzo della Regina), thus forming another Isosceles triangle. It was near that perpendicular that we were when the giant shadow of the Sibyl appeared before us, laid against the wall of the Mount Priora/Pizzo della Regina


Here is part of the Numerology Studies the Research Group did prior to go up to the mountains. They have actually covered the whole three days with synchronicity and esoteric alignments, but I decided to post only the ones regarding the day of the appearance.
Below is a picture of their map with all the geometrical correspondences, distances, and esoteric places surrounding the area where the Cry of the Sibyl appeared...
