Sudden Influx
« on: January 16, 2010, 12:13:41 PM »
 There has been a sudden rash of shadow activity in my workplace. This is daylight activity that has been increasing in intensity for about two months.
I ascribed it to a number of things.

1) Being tired and working long hrs. under possibly malfunctioning florescent lights.
2) Long overcast days just making what's always been there more noticable.
3) Some employees quit unexpectedly and their personal critters didn't have the new address. Expecting folks to be where they left them, and riquocheting around in a panic looking for them.
4) Maybe it's Shadow migratory season and everything is just passing thru.

Please let me mention this is not a Mayday situation. Just curious. I'd quit all things weird an metaphysical awhile back an have a lovely large Off-Duty sign up over my head. I'd made a public service announcement for all and any to take a hike. Which lead to the thought if a void was left maybe the littler things took it as an invitation. That theory was proven wrong the other night.
During a overtime employee meeting which ran very late we had a "time out "as other staff including the Boss were hearing auditory phenomina , a search party was sent out to make sure the building was secure. I found it both funny and disturbing.
The meeting was ended due to it. I've never tied auditory to shadow activity ,but it demonstrates the work site is pretty active.

Any suggestions would be appreciated. The "threat" level has increased in the past week to the point I'd thought about doing some boundary work, but Oh No....I swear I'm off-duty! No means No. However I am curious and would like to be assured this isn't a build-up to something more" exciting"
Thank you for your time and Patience.

in telling them all to go away, you've pretty much just banished the nice ones...
the fact that this happens during daylight hours tells me that the ones you see are strong.

my advice: you have a gift, USE IT! you are what we call a "Shiny". spirits of all kinds are attracted to you. this means that the bad ones will see you as a more fun plaything and the good ones will seek you out for help. put the shadows in their place, or they will have their way with you.

Carden,
Thanks for the reply. Am unsure why you'd think just the "nice" ones would leave? A broadcast call for everything to "Bugger-Off" should have resulted in resounding quiet.  I'm suprised no one bit on the migratory theory...
Thanks for the assist!

because the nice ones would respect your wishes.
the others just want to screw with your head.

Are we talking about shadow people here? How do we even know if there are nice/bad ones? Don't we like... know absolutely nothing about them? Other than they don't like being seen and/or can't be looked at directly? Just wondering 'cause last thing I heard about those was that they seemed curious and that we didn't know the first thing about their true nature... Maybe I'm wrong, though, my encounters with those guys probably isn't more than five times... And some I'm not sure of :P

To answer KubeSix yes indeed we're discussing ShadowBeings.
Some are like you may have seen on TV shows like TAPS where they just scamper around in the backround about their own business....some can percieve us and it can shock them just as it does us. Which I tend to think may be the "nice" ones. As they try to avoid us as we do them.

The "not nice" ones seem to enjoy popping up and acting like a boogyman in the sense they seem to enjoy it.

I asked the original question about the possible sudden influx of daytime activity because if it was just isolated to my location that would be very different than if it was happening to others, not just me.

I have noticed over the years that "stuff" seems to roll thru at different times of the year which has absolutely nothing to do with human activities. Just patterns of different beings own activities. In their own respective realms for lack of a better description.

Hasn't anyone while driving at night seen the smaller shadow beings racing alongside their vehicle just for the sheer joy of it?  Well....maybe not....but they do and are harmless....

As far as C on his demon hunts that's his choice....I appreciate his input.

I think Carden is too eager to interpret all entities as demons!  :roll:

I prefer to keep a lower profile. I'm willing to give them the benefit of a doubt.

no. i used the term "not so nice ones" instead of demons. there are malevolent human spirits out there too.
i believe in ghosts. i actually had a good friend that i met after she was dead.

but i don't think shadow people are good. as to whether they are demonic in nature, i'm not sure. i haven't had a chance to get up close and personal with them. i see them quite often when i drive. i would just think that if they were good, they wouldn't be so shy or dark. in the spirit world, you don't have flesh and blood to hide what your soul is like.

Good or not, none have ever attempted to harm me. (or anyone as far as I know, correct me if I'm wrong here) Yes, watched and followed at times, but never harmed. I think they're more curious than anything. After all, curiosity can easily push someone (or something) to ignore warnings and rules... Their children at heart! *<:) :3 Just kidding, but seriously now, if they had bad intentions I don't think they'd just stand there and watch, making sure to never be seen directly. It seems more like a fearful precaution to me...

Their dark appearance could mean anything, I mean the idea that darkness is "evil"... That's just us who've given it that label. Being diurnal animals, it's only natural to be afraid of darkness. Don't judge a book by its cover, right?

As for the spirit world and not hiding the soul and all... We don't know the first thing about them; we can't really say if they even are spirits or even if they're from the spirit world at all... Or can we?

this is true. but you also can't be sure that a shadow person is always a shadow person. couldn't it be possible that these beings watch us as shadows and then interact with us as something else?

Could be. It's not like demons (or others) using deception is unheard of. I like to think there are genuine shadow people out there, but who knows, really...

Shadow folk are closer to the Sidhe than Demons. They have a pecking order, the big harmful ones are outside it, rogue even. They have an interest in humans, which I have yet to determine what. If you want useful info ask, or dream walk for it the answer.

just looked them up. it's very interesting.

here's what one site had to say:

Quote
The race of beings that sometimes appear to mortals as a dark shadow out of the corner of the eye are known as The Shadow People. No one knows who they are or what they want, but they are often seen spreading mischief and trouble among those that see them. While some shadow people spread terror, others seem not to cause any kind of fear at all, simply being content to watch people.

These beings are most often seen out of the corner of the eye, as they prefer not to be noticed. Many people report a feeling of being watched, or the shadow's presence is felt nearby. Sometimes they are seen from the neck up only, and others have a pair of glowing red eyes.

The one known as The Hat Man is thought to be their leader. This shadow is seen with various kinds of hats, and sometimes with glowing red eyes. The Hat Man is usually accompanied by a sense of dread or terror. No one knows what this being wants. . . .


and i just noticed the first post pinned on this forum.
paints them in a rather negative light as well...

THEY SOUND EVIL. ARE THEY?

No more so then humans. Like us, they have their own affairs, which may or may not collide with the affairs of humankind. More than likely, they are attempting to influence us into a new age of goodwill. Still, they sometimes do harm innocents with their need for energy, and humankind hates anything that poses a threat.

A negative light to a human being, that is. If you think about it the way that thread depicts them, you're basically thinking of them the same way animals would think of us. We feed on them, examine them and observe them, yet even if those things are either out of necessity or aren't harmful, they've grown to fear us.

I think it depicts them in a rather neutral light actually... Personality and needs we don't understand... Can we really judge? After all, I could tell the story of a race of beings who feed off of innocents and live in constant chaos, striving in their own destruction. When described that way, we humans don't sound like good guys either... But we tend to put emphasis on the bad side of things so as to warn people; it's more than likely that the Shadow People have a good side as well.

About the hat man... According to reports, that one's usually accompanied by fear, like in that quote you posted, but that's not always the case with Shadow People. I don't know what that means, but wouldn't that be one of the rogue ones that oni mentioned? If so, that's not a leader... People just tend to identify the one that stands out as the leader, but what do we know really?

Shadow folk are closer to the Sidhe than Demons. They have a pecking order, the big harmful ones are outside it, rogue even. They have an interest in humans, which I have yet to determine what. If you want useful info ask, or dream walk for it the answer.

Hmmm I've never dream walked before :(

EDIT: http://paranormal.about.com/od/ghosthuntinggeninfo/a/shadow-ppl-what_2.htm This is an interview about them. Seemed interesting.

i think i have on accident a few times.
apparently i'm much more impressive outside of my body haha!

oh! i think i've got it!

i read that article and it all makes sense now!

the shadow people are like grim reapers. i believe there is truth to every belief and i think this may be it. it's their duty to help with the transition into death. like the Bean Sidhe or Banshee in irish mythology. it is the entity that heralds a death.

we fear death because we know nothing about it. could it be that death fears life for the same reason? this could explain their fleeting behaviour.

but this "hat man". i don't think it's the same kind of shadow person. it's the only one that people report being afraid of. when an entity creates a sense of fear, in my experience, that's a bad sign. i must find out more about this "hat man".
