Everything about Shadows

Recently, I have been getting a lot of PMs from newbies asking me what 'Shadows' are. Please note that they did not do anything wrong, but it wouldn't kill them to see if I had already posted info on them first so I wouldn't have to say the same facts again and again. So, whenever a member asks me a question I have already answered about Shadows, I will give them a link to this topic. If they happen to ask me something about Shadows I didn't state, then I will out the question & the answer on here. Please note that all iformation to be found here is based purely on my own findings/beliefs, and is not explained in a scientific way, nor does it represent beliefs about Shadows at large. This is all about my beliefs. Okay. Here goes:


WHAT ARE 'SHADOWS'?

Shadows are setient beings made up of some sort of dark energy, and can take on a variety of forms, due to the malleability of the substance of which thier body is made. They can inhabit physical bodies if the wish, although this may weaken thier energy. Other names for Shadows are: Shadow People, Nightcrawlers, Children of the Shadow, and Shadowbeings. In a non-human state, a Shadow will generally appear to be made up of some sort of opaque shadow-like substance, and will often, although not always, have red eyes. Some Shadows (out of physical state) will drain energy from a human or animal whom they deem appropriate, usually due to high-strunbg emotions, or because they are easy to scare. They may continue to follow this person for several years, and this may cause bizarre happenings to become situated around that person.

WHAT ABOUT SHADOWS IN HUMAN STATES?

It is possible for a Shadow to transform into a human body, or even for a Shadow to be born a human but still posses many of the powers of a Shadow, as well as keep the mentallity of a Shadow. These Human-Shadows will tend to keep to themselves, will often have 'predatory' eyes, may have supernatural gifts, and will often behave like an adult from an early age, often causing others to feel uncomfotable around them. Many of these Human-Shadows will tend to eat far more meat than vegetables, and will eat ravenously.

WHY WOULD A SHADOW WANT TO BE HUMAN?

Secrecy, that's why. Being human allows them to infiltrate our schools, government, and all other rights that affect us. They do this so they can controll us to some extent. I believe they are strongly connected to the Indigo Child phenominon.

THEY SOUND EVIL. ARE THEY?

No more so then humans. Like us, they have thier 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 thier need for energy, and humankind hates anything that poses a threat.

OKAY, SO WHERE ARE THESE 'SHADOWS' AND HOW COME THEY'RE NOT IN OUR MYTHS?

Oh, but they are. They are simply mistaken to be minor gods or to be demons, psi-vampires and so on.
Where are they? They live in many worlds, including the elemental realm, the astral realm, and the Shadow Realm. And this one.

WHAT ARE SOME POWERS OF A SHADOW?

Shadows can affect the weather with thier emotions. They can also locate people through thier emotions (they are empaths, in a sense). They can be stronger than a natural human, hide much better (blend in with the shadows), and in thier out of human state, shapeshift to an extent.

WEAKNESSES?
Although I know some of thier weaknesses, I have no idea why some of them work. If you want to ward of a Shadow, Shaodws hate the number twelve. Try putting twelve thumbtacks aroun your door. If you have twelve letter name (that's your first and your last name) then they might always leave you alone. I happen to have thirteen letters in my name (the fave number of Shadows). Having thirteen letters in your name makes you a more likely candidate. 13 atracts them, as does any multiple of it. If your hous is made of 169 (13 times 13) bricks, you may be in trouble.
Shadows are not fond of sunlight, and it pains them to look at it. It will weaken them slightly to be out in the sun for a little while. Nevertheless, they can stand it if they must. They love overcast days (obviously).


HOW COME YOU CAN SEE SHADOWS?! WHAT MAKES YOU SO SPECIAL?

I am what I call a 'Spotter'. Spotters are people who can see through some of the illusions supernatural beings create, althoguh not all. I am also an empath, and a human's emotions are very different for a non-humans, so I can also tell whether or not they are human in this manner as well.
Why am I a Spotter? Most likely I was frequently in contact with Shadows at a young age, so I developed the gift of sensing them. You too may develope these qualities if you are surrounded by Shadows as well. I live in the ideal climate and area for Shadows as well. Being in cities makes them uncomfortable, and they don't like heat.

13 GOOD SIGNS YOU MAY HAVE BECOME SHADOW-PREY:

1. You see movements in the corner of you eyes, and hear noises, but when you look, no ones there.

2. The most bizarre events seem to happen around you. Unusual whether, startling coincidences, and supernatural events are all indicators.

3. You have voices out of nowhere warning you not to do something. After all, the Shadow can't afford for it's food source to be destroyed.

4. You notice that many series of objects that you are collecting have had parts of them dissapear, so you have multiples of thirteen.

5. A bizzare series of events has led you to moving to a house with thirteen stairs up to the front door/thirteen briks around the doorway/a chimney made up of a multiple of thirteen bricks.

6. You are attracting the strangest people. One of your new friends seems to be strangly adult like, and he just moved here. Everyone else considers him/her weird but you seem to like them for some strange reason.

7. You find yourself mysteriously straying away from restaurants/buildings with twelve letters in thier name.

8.When you get mad at someone, you instantly feel rather weak, and your friend is staring at you in the most peculiar way.

9. You get dreams where you are visited by a shadowy, nocturnal visitor...

10. You are starting to tune in to all sorts of supernatural phenominon no one else seems to notice.

11. You develope entirely new skills you never used to have in a short period of time.

12. Animals either start straying away from you, or won't leave you.

13. You start noticing strange children around you, and you are convinced, without a doubt, that they are not human.....

Could you also post your theory on the number twelve in here, Shadowling?

This just popped into my head and could be way off but this could be one of the reasons Shadow's hate the figure twelve.

Well here goes: Shadow's know allot and have a much greater knowledge then humans. So it would kind of make sense if they are afraid of or wary about something if they don't know much about it. Eg. They have never tried to learn about 12 and there for it's turned into maybe something like an old wives tale. That or they could have studied twelve too much and found something they didn't like and it causes them to be afraid of it.

Well that's my attempt at a theory. Even though I can't remember Shadowling's I know it was better than this.

Their attitude firstly, the fact that they would want to infiltrate our school and government means that they obviously have a thirst for knowledge. I believe they have been around for along time that also helps.

(Found elsewhere on the net, seemed to be describing Shadows...)

"The subtle reality is immense. Because our concepts of distance and physical boundaries do not exist there, any single space may be populated by hundreds of subtle beings, resonances, and impressions. Even the most desolate, empty space here in the physical world is crawling with things on the subtle level. Some can perceive and interact with us, but most are largely too out of phase to notice anything but their own small sliver of the realm.

Most ordinary people are like the out of phase beings. They are too intent on their one small aspect of reality to respond to anything else. Yet because some of us have sensitive natures, we cannot help but perceive and respond to at least some of these other things, and so many of these things are likely to notice and respond to us. Some will find it intensely disturbing to feel and be felt by such otherworldly things.

Rarely are subtle beings interested enough in our realm to attempt to do malicious harm to anyone. Yet, all things which exist in the subtle reality still feed, and many of them seek out humanity as their main source of food. But these preying entities are rarely felt by anyone they seek out. Yet it can be very inconvenient for us to become a source of energy for another being as we do not really produce enough energy to sustain ourselves.

We should be aware of this aspect of the subtle reality, and we should hone our perceptions so that we can sense when a subtle being is present in our home. If we are sensitive enough to interact with the subtle as well as the physical realm, we have the ability to forcibly eject such beings from our home. Much as one would clean the house of spent energy and emotions, simply isolate the entity, reach out on the subtle level and gather it up. As a subtle being, it has little definitive form, so you will have to judge by your impressions whether you have gotten hold of it or not. Once you have hold of the thing, carry it out to the front or back door and essentially give it the boot. Toss it out of your living space and project the definite impression that you do not want it coming back. Most subtle beings seem somewhat intimidated by our kind, and this seems to cause them discomfort or harm.

Many subtle entities are not harmful at all, and discretion should be used when an invading being is punished by being thrown out. A certain amount of subtle traffic is always to be expected in our homes. First of all, there is the simple fact that subtle beings are all over the place. It is the nature of the subtle reality that such things occupy all spaces and no space at the same time. Yet there is also the fact that many subtle entities seem attracted to our kind. They may sense our unique energy signature, and they may be attracted out of simple curiosity. To a certain extent, we have a good deal in common with these beings, especially in the manner in which we interact with the subtle reality and feed upon energy. We certainly have a more real and palpable presence in the subtle reality than most incarnated beings.

As it is difficult to communicate with such beings except in the vaguest terms, their reasons will probably remain known only to them. Whatever the case, we should not be surprised or alarmed by their presence unless they take an active role in disturbing the sanctity of our home."

Much appreciated,  Devious Viper. That's a very useful addition. I am amazed that even with my extensive searches on the subject of 'subtle beings', and Shadow People, as they are more widely refered to on the net, I have not come across that article. Can you give me the URL of that site? :)

I have lost count of the numerous times I have heard the term "shadow people" mentioned lately in different circles. Hm. Never really heard the term before I came here to Monstrous. The spirit world seems to "mutate" with the changing times. Man comes up with a theory, the spirits get new costumes. :shock:  :!: jk

Pardon my ignorance, but what does 'jk' stand for?
  Shadows have been seen by people for who knows how long, but it wasn't an accepted supernatural topic until people began speaking more openly on the net. The more people began to share their experiances, the more others realized that they were not insane and began to share thier own.  And, I don't think the spirit world so much mutates, as it reveals hidden parts of itself, and shades others from view. I think that belief helps shape reality, so when things are no longer believed in, or very few people do, they are omitted from the views of people at large.

Hey, Benjamin! JK stands for Just Kidding! I thought everyone knew that. sorry. My bad. How are you doing? I know people who have seen these things, just didn't know what to call them. I've felt their presence but can't say I've ever seen them. I might have. Hope I don't see one tonight! lol

:oops: Sorry about that. If I hadn't pocrastinated on researching net slang, I wouldn't of ranted.
  Its unlikely you will, if you haven't already, and you shouldn't be scared of them. They don't generally try to cause harm. Usually, they will appear to ignore you, run away right after you see one (they assume that humans in general can't see them, so when they are spotted, they get unnerved), or simply dissapear altogether. Just don't do anything that could make them feel invited.

No, like the unlikely event that you will fill your house with items representing thirteen, buying a house with, for example, thrteen steps up to the door, actually seeking them out and asking them to visit, or some other verbal or mental invitation. Writing poems about Shadows doesn't hurt, so long as they are not entitled:

 "I OPENLY INVITE SHADOWS INTO MY HOME, AND ALLOW THEM TO LAY CLAIM TO ME AND ANYTHING CLOSE TO ME."

 Or,

 "I BET YOU DAMN SHADOWS COULDN'T ENTER MY HOME!"

  :lol: But, I think we both know that neither of those situations is likely to occur, so rest assured that you have not invited them to use you as Shadowprey.

Indeed. :lol:
 Although, on a more serious note, I don't think the Shadows can effect me much more then they have already. Besides, I usually have protections set up.
