I guess I will though my 2 cents in on this topic since it is something that I deal with a lot in my work. I'm new to this website but I really
enjoy reading the forums. My name is Trent Brandon and I host a website called Zerotime Paranormal. I do a lot of ghost hunting and writing.
Literally thousands of people write me stories every single year and many people talk about shadow people. When I first starting reading the shadow
people stories I must say that I believed them to be fakes. The stories almost seem too outrageous to be true. But after reading so many stories
over the years from different people all over the world what stuck with me was how everyone was telling me basically the same details. Im going to
include the entire passage from my book, The Book of Ghosts, on Shadow People or what I have named Shadow Builders. I will also include a link to a
digital image of an artist rendering of shadow builders created from eyewitness descriptions. I have never seen the image posted at the beginning of
this threat before but the flowing shadow looks very similar to the image in my book.
***NOTE*** While I am posting this information and story which appear in my book I would kindly ask that no one else uses this material on their
website. I would also just say for the record that I have no way to verifying the story provided. I did my best to pick out stories that I believed
were coming from genuine, credible people, but even the most sincere person can be a fake. This story is on par with all of the shadow builder
stories that I received online.
The Shadow Builder
The shadow builder is a dark, mysterious, and intelligent phantom. Shadow builders manifest in the shadows of life. They are very intellectual and
knowledgeable specters that can manipulate and control shadows. The best way to physically describe a shadow builder is a solid, walking shadow often
reported to have glowing eyes. They are described as human-like in form, but still like a shadow that can flow illusively and quickly into dark
corners. Their touch is icy cold like that of death.
People tend to first become aware a shadow builder's presence by seeing them out of the corner of their eye. Witnesses catch a quick glimpse of
movement in the shadows. Most people who see them will put off their first sighting as an overactive imagination. The shadow builder's movements
are fast and masked in the safety of the shadows. Real shadows give camouflage to this elusive phantom.
Shadow builders have their own agenda. Their needs and interests are kept secret. They see the world from a different viewpoint. Their supernatural
knowledge gives them an advantage over the living. They can manage and influence the world around them to varying degrees. Shadow builders are very
powerful and can be extremely intimidating. These phantoms could be working inside an unknown supernatural system or hierarchy of supernatural
spirits. They are believed by some to communicate and work together with other phantoms.
Shadow builders are the enigma of ghosts. These ghosts are not tied down to a single location. They can be present anywhere at anytime. These
phantoms decide whether or not they will communicate with people. They choose how they will communicate and what information they will provide.
Shadow builders have been mistaken for angels, demons, time travelers, inter-dimensional beings, aliens, and even the grim reaper.
People who communicate with a shadow builder phantom will carry a strange friendship throughout their lifetime. At times, they may even come into
contact with other shadow builders. Shadow builders can interact with the living and provide secret information about the past, present, and future.
They know things that are seemingly unknowable because they are working on a higher supernatural level than other normal ghosts. They never offer the
living access to all of their secrets and keep their real intentions hidden. Shadow builders offer a strange look into the shadowy world of ghosts.
The Story of a Shadow Builder
Thomas O'Connor thought that he must have been going crazy when he started seeing shadows moving and gliding around the basement of his home. His
experiences started out very simple. During some spring-cleaning, Tom was emptying boxes in the basement. He kept seeing shadows moving out of the
corner of his eye. When he would take a closer look, the shadows stopped moving. Nothing was there but dust and shadows. Tom finished the cleaning
and went on with his life.
The phantom seemed to be most active in the basement. Tom still had not seen the phantom, but he had the feeling that something odd was happening in
his house. Things remained quiet for a few months until Tom's wife ran up from the basement screaming hysterically. She said that she saw someone
with red eyes staring at her in the basement.
Despite the weird moving shadows, Tom figured that the eyes were probably from a cat or wild animal that had gotten into the basement. He went down
to investigate. He looked around the basement, but could not find anything. Then suddenly the shadows seemed to gather around themselves. In the
middle of the shadows was a set of red glowing eyes peering back at Tom from the darkness. Tom knew right away that these eyes were not from a wild
animal. His heart was pounding and he was utterly terrified.
Not knowing what to do next and not knowing what this monster was going to do to him, Tom started to slowly back up toward the steps. Just then, the
shadows shifted. They seemed to build on themselves forming a human-like shadow figure. It was strange, but suddenly Tom felt calm and more relaxed.
Some of his fear seemed to be lifted away. Just when Tom thought that his experience could not get any stranger, the figure spoke to him in a human
voice saying, Hello Tom, do not be afraid of me. Tom was shocked, but he choked back his voice to ask, What are you? Its' reply was simple, I
am a friend. The phantom went on to say that it could help Tom and his family. Then it disappeared without warning.
Tom explained to his wife what had happened to him. He told her not to be afraid of this phantom, but she would not go back into the basement and
wanted to sell the house. Tom continued going down into the basement every evening to wash clothes for the family and to have long conversations with
the shadowy being. They talked about philosophy, history, religion, and current events. Tom never felt threatened by the phantom.
Tom and his wife were having some serious marital problems because of their new visitor. She desperately wanted him to stop communicating with the
phantom. On one visit to the basement, the shadow builder lived up to its' promise to help Tom's family. It told Tom that his wife had breast
cancer. Tom went straight upstairs and told his wife. Sure enough, an examination revealed a malignant tumor in one of her breasts. The information
provided by the phantom caught the cancer in the early stages and helped saved the life of Tom's wife. Tom believed that the phantom's information
helped his wife get quick treatment for the cancer, but his wife believed that the phantom knew about the cancer because it created the cancer.
Tom's wife filed for divorce and moved out of the house. Tom was left alone with the phantom that he still claims to be in contact with to this day.
