Title: An attack by shadow persons?
Post by: WeeFolkMan on June 11, 2006, 11:55:31 am
A freind of mine ( who is a VERY honest person) told me not too long ago that one day he was walking down the road (we live  in the country on a dirt road) that 5 people where talking on the side of the road, and that when he came about 7 feet from them, that they suddenly turned into "shadows" and flew through him.. he said that it felt like being hit with a 2X4 in the chest... do you think its for real? i trust him.... but have there been anything simallar?

Its a lie. Not only would a Shadow not talk, it would not just form in broad daylight (Im assuming) and talk with eachother. Tell him to stop watching to many movies and to realize when someones dreaming and when someones not.

No I know its been done for its been on tape recorders and it really does sound like a multiple voice death anguish.

But the idea of the talking in the story is not possible so I agree with you there, they cannot talk normally.

I believe that the shadows come from a "Twilight Realm" and they can pass through our world they appear as shadows. When they try to communicate with us it comes out is whispers and sounds like Luffy said. So them appearing as normal people and becoming shadows and attacking your friend in my belief is impossible.

I suppose you may be right, but do you think that they are spirits or just another species of life in the universe? And another strange thing is that we can hardly see them for more then an instant, its like they just move too fast to see with human eyes! :-o Do you think that they are rly trying to communicate with us doh? :|

Maybe what your friend saw was something other than Shadows. I have seen shadows and the are exactly that. Silhouettes that seem to be 3 Dimensional that move and act like people. (or at least the ones I had seen).  Could he have seen a pack of Demonic Spirits?

Shadows are capable of assuming human form too.  It allows them to spy on humans and feed off the energy obtained from the emotions of the latter.

Do they ever interact with humans in a positive way? They have always been in a negative way when I come acrosss them. (or they me) , Are they inherintly evil?
Don't really know much about them , just they move fast! lol

We dont have any more Shadow experts, they all left. If its written by Shadowling, it will be mostly factual and up to date. Also, Shadows arent evil. They do what they need to survive, just as we do.

If he was picking it up telepathically and didn't realise it would have been normal to him.

Delamorte, I have had positive interactions. It is very possible.

Phantom,
 Have you in your experiences gained insight as to who they are and why they are here?
Title: Re: An attack by shadow persons?
Post by: Phantom X on July 03, 2006, 08:31:12 pm
An old friend and teacher (Shadowling) told me a lot about them. I used to have them, but I put up psychic shields to keep them out. I am not a fan of what I cant see.
Title: Re: An attack by shadow persons?
Post by: Dark Lord M on July 05, 2006, 03:44:51 pm
I have been doing studies on Shadows and there are some cases where they do attack people, Alexander knows what I meen when I say this, so I can understand the attack, but not humans turning into Shadow People. :spy:

Physical attacks? I've heard of mental although they could use the mental attack to make it seem physical.
Title: Re: An attack by shadow persons?
Post by: Dark Lord M on July 06, 2006, 06:30:26 am
Yes, some people say they have been physically attacked and even raped by these things. :spy:
Title: Re: An attack by shadow persons?
Post by: Phantom X on July 06, 2006, 09:36:02 am
That is 100% not true. All a Shadow wants is the energies that they can get off a person. They will try and scare it indirectly, but if that doesnt work anymore they will just get up and leave. Shadows would never physically attack anything, let alone rape them.
Title: Re: An attack by shadow persons?
Post by: Devious Viper on July 06, 2006, 10:43:21 am
Actually, Tom, Mike is right - some people have alleged physical attacks, and even rapes. The veracity of the allegations is a different matter, but they have been made.

Theres a diffrence between Shadows and spirits that appear as a black mass. Those are the ones that attack and rape, not shadows.
Title: Re: An attack by shadow persons?
Post by: Devious Viper on July 06, 2006, 11:24:27 am
What exactly is the difference?
Title: Re: An attack by shadow persons?
Post by: Phantom X on July 06, 2006, 11:49:55 am
A shadow is a shadow and always was. A spirit that appears as a black mass was a human that died. There have been many many many shadow sightings that have turned out to be just ghosts. Shadows have no need to attack and rape.They like the ones that scare easily. Once a person catches on and becomes immune to the presense of the Shadow, then it will leave to go onto another victim. Rape and attack will give them to much attention for their liking.
Title: Re: An attack by shadow persons?
Post by: Devious Viper on July 06, 2006, 11:55:18 am
Your first two sentences are only assumptions on your part - you could be wrong. Your last two are at odds with the reports and the opinions of the Shadow experts. I'm confused as to how a shadow sighting could be 'proven' to be a haunting. What would you list as the differential points when trying to determine which of the entities was involved?
Title: Re: An attack by shadow persons?
Post by: Phantom X on July 06, 2006, 12:05:54 pm
Actually, the first sentance is what Shadowling, our first true expert, has taught me. Shadowling left before he could tell me how to differentiate. From my experiences with him, he seems to know alot more than the average expert to begin with. If only he was here....
Title: Re: An attack by shadow persons?
Post by: Devious Viper on July 06, 2006, 12:12:44 pm
Dr. Morgan Spence and Heidi Hollis seem to be the two people that the remainder of the paranormal field turn to as the aknowledged experts; they both seem certain that shadows can and will attack under certain circumstances. Perhaps Shadowling's dealings were with less aggressive shadows? I have read somewhere that they tune in to certain types of psychic vibe, so perhaps they were more wary?

I wonder if this could be an incubus or succubus rather than a shadow?

They have similarities, but the cross-over is to the extent that one could wonder if it applied both ways.

Thanks for backing me up DV, If Shadows can walk through walls, move things, and other such stuff, and if they need negative emotions to power themselves, what better way to attack a human. That would give them more energy then just jumping out at a human.  :<
Title: Re: An attack by shadow persons?
Post by: Shadow on July 09, 2006, 06:48:42 am
I MIGHT be willing to accept a physical attack from a Shadow but a rape is beyond them, they have a sense of honor just as we do and if it was possible it would be really, really rare. They have to be allowed out of their Shadow realm. I believe they can move things but they wouldn't without good reason. They aren't here to draw attention and if your favourite pen goes missing from a place that you never touch, that causes attention. They don't just feed off us, they learn too and they can't learn from us if they interupt our normal cycle of life. Have any of these alleged "rapes" found any kind of semen? Or if it was true I would be most intrigues by a Shadow induced pregnancy but to me they wouldn't touch a human with out great need.
Title: Re: An attack by shadow persons?
Post by: Devious Viper on July 09, 2006, 07:05:34 am
I don't necessarily disagree with you per se, for the sake of arguing, but... there is an awful lot of anecdotal (and that is all there is about any aspect of Shadow people) that they are carrying out malevolent attacks. And as for a sense of honour, I think that is
a) anthropomorphisation of a plainly inhuman entity
b) just wrong - how can a creature that slinks around feeding off of one's fears, uninvited, have honour?

Reports suggest that these creatures are growing in strength and numbers and boldness. however they might have acted when they first came to our attention could be very different to how they are now, particularly as we have no idea what their agenda is.

well i have met many shadows and all of them were not friendly. in fact they have tryed to hurt some of my friends because i have a habbit of pissing them off. and well i do know that they hate cats,they will not enter a room that has a cat in it, i dont know why. and i have a very bad habbit of finding them alot. for some reason they cant hurt me so they sometimes hurt my friends. but i have met one good shadow but he is my guardian. i need to find a why to fight the violent ones because i put like minded people in danger because the shadows cant touch me for some reason. or i am just crazy but when i am not the only one that can see and feel them so i think that we all cant be crazy.

About that attack or rape, i think it could be more possible that a person with strong psychic and energy skills could have done one out of those 3 things.
1- a psychic illusion
2- astral projection, but really good enough with telekinetic skills and matter manipulations.
3- Send out a different being other than a shadow, but that had a shadowy form.

I read most of the post about shadows and i am myself working on about learning about my "shadow-self" so il probably post some stuff about the discovery that i am going through about the inner shadow and maybe it could have some relationship with the shadow people.

that's true! their attack is on emotions,more often when you're feeling depressed,melancholy,etc. ... i think that somehow it's their ''food'' rather than trying to recruit human in their own,but it happens...

 Just a thought, but could it be that for a second he was seeing what the shadow people realy are? who realy knows forsure what they are able to do or realy look like without the cover of shadows..

And personaly I dont think anyone or anything is above doing anything, if that makes sense.

keep in mind I have no idea what im talking about. It's just a thought!!

In my opinion I believe your friend was lying about the encounter. I have seen shadow people majority of my life. Most of time shadow people try to avoid any contact with humans. Second i never encounter any shadow people speaking or in large numbers. Either your friend had a rare encounter with shadow people or perhaps maybe encounter with a cluster of demons. It would be more plausible it was a group of demons then shadow people. I have seen shadow people form in broad daylight but it rare but they do so at will.

Likely NOT a demon, to be honest. Why on earth would a demon wear black robes and do no more than fly through a person? I really don't understand.

That said, also definitely not a shadow.

Either an apparition or a lie.
