I am going to post an edited version of a U2U that I sent out to a few members asking about my personal experiences with these things, as I have a
long history of dealing with them.
I have dealt with them for most of my adult life, and have finally rid them from my immediate surroundings. They are not demonic, and they are not
disembodied spirits. From what I can tell, they are some sort of multi-vibrational beings (aka astral/dimensional travelers....possibly even ET in
origin). The fact that the OP has observed them obeying certain laws of our physics, such as avoiding walking into things, not walking through walls,
etc. shows to me that something has shifted in either their energy patterns or our own. When they first started appearing to me, they would phase
through walls, float above my bed, appear from under my bed or out from the closet- all things typical of the classic "boogeyman."
Given the fact that I have dealt with spirits, poltergeists, demons, and such as a paranormal investigator, I can tell you that the shadow people's
"parlor tricks" didn't scare me one bit. If anything else, it pissed me off and caused me not to sleep well that night. Some nights were worse than
others, but they were never able to physically interact with me. I can't say that for some of the other "traditional" cases that I have worked on.
The fact that these things are getting more persistent in their actions makes me wonder if the veil is thinning so much that they are gaining more
power in this plane of existence. They definitely have an intelligence about them, but their motives are unclear, at least to me.
If any of you are indeed a "sensitive", then I recommend that you look up grounding and shielding techniques, as well as enacting "Castle Law" in your
home. This is akin to the phrase: "My home is my Castle. You shall not enter without my permission." Even beings of Free-Will must obey and respect
the law's of one's own property.
I have learned to manipulate energy to a certain degree which is enough to force them from my home if need be (this is akin to Chi, which is talked
about in the Asian cultures quite frequently). They cannot be destroyed (nor can any incorporeal being, really), but they can be fought off if the
situation comes to such. Getting angry at them only makes them stronger, so using a calm, cool head, center and shield yourself, and then forcefully
command them to leave, reciting the Castle Law the whole time. If they laugh in your face, spit in theirs and remind them that they are bound to our
physical laws. I personally have no patience for beings that do not respect the boundaries of others, and I'm very vocal about getting them out of
Remember: from our own members' observations, they follow certain physical laws, but it seems to me that they cannot interact with us at a physical
These beings do not follow the laws of the Biblical God, or any other "God" for that matter. They are free-thinking, free-willed beings (as far as I
can tell and observe). Praying does not work (and if it does work, you're not dealing with the Shadow Beings in question). Believe me, after seeing
two different clients in two different parts of the state deal with them "watching" all night for weeks on end, and after not one but THREE different
clergy visits, they called me in, as my name got out through word of mouth (friend of a friend type stuff...I don't advertise, as I want to avoid over
exposure...I'm just a regular guy with a 9-5). Just stating that as a free-willed being, they must also obey the wishes of other free-willed beings
concerning personal space, seemed to do the trick. Like I said, some of them are nastier than others, but for the most part they must obey certain
laws, as Zombie observed them avoiding walking into chairs, doors, etc. Demons, ghosts, et al. do not follow physical laws, which says to me that
these Shadow People must have some sort of physicality about them.
I hope that this extra info helps the thread somewhat. Please keep us all updated if any of you observe these things outside of the three main
states: Black Mist, Fedora Man, or Hooded Figure. I have an open notebook that I keep just for Shadow Being notes. In case any of you missed my link
to the shadow people archives
here it is again. This is a collection of anecdotal stories from people all
over. The consistency in the stories really makes me believe that this is something that needs to be really researched a lot further.
Peace be with you.
