In Case You Were Wondering, Shadow People Are NOT Ghosts - Here's Why
A shadow person also known as a shadow figure , shadow being or black mass is the perception of a patch of shadow as a living, humanoid figure, particularly as interpreted by believers in the paranormal or supernatural as the presence of a spirit or other entity. A number of religions, legends, and belief systems describe shadowy spiritual beings or supernatural entities such as shades of the underworld, and various shadowy creatures have long been a staple of folklore and ghost stories. The Coast to Coast AM late night radio talk show helped popularize modern beliefs in shadow people. During the show, listeners were encouraged to submit drawings of shadow people that they had seen and a large number of these drawings were immediately shared publicly on the website. Although participants in online discussion forums devoted to paranormal and supernatural topics describe them as menacing, other believers and paranormal authors do not agree whether shadow people are either evil, helpful, or neutral, and some even speculate that shadow people may be the extra-dimensional inhabitants of another universe. Shadow people feature in two episodes of ITV paranormal documentary series Extreme Ghost Stories , where the phenomenon is described as a "black mass".
Have you ever caught a fleeting shadow out of the corner of your eye? Or awakened from a dream to find a looming presence near your bed? Or come face to face with a dark shadow in your kitchen that melts away, leaving you feeling disturbed and not quite alone? You may have seen shadow spirits. There are two possible explanations for seeing shadow spirits. The first and possibly the most common is that you were in a state of hypnogogia.
This is a podcast by Fiona Broome, created to accompany the Ghosts At first, the questions surprised me. They were just a fleeting dark something-or-other, sometimes seen out of the corner of my eye. A full, shadowy apparition…? That used to be something rare.
Are ghosts and shadow people the same things? Paranormal experts have been debating for decades about whether or not ghosts can actually understand what's happening around them or if they're simply going through the motions of a past life. It's believed that ghostly apparitions are simply the residual energy left over when a person dies, meaning that while you may be able to see them they can't see or interact with you. On the other hand, shadow people are sometimes corporeal beings who are, at best, believed to be from another dimension, and at their worst they may be demonic in nature. People who have had interactions with shadow people believe that the creatures make conscious decisions for how they'll treat a person, something that a ghost can't do. While no one knows exactly why shadow people exist, one interesting idea is that they're similar to poltergeists, meaning that humans create them from their own negative energy. While most ghosts are created through outside means murder, suicide, etc.
