Shadow People  part 1

You can finish reading in PART 2 (post was too long to contain all research)

Part 2,7414.0.html

I will begin with a little background, this thread is an accumulation of information that started with a conversation between myself and a very adept empath who has been instrumental and invaluable in the upkeep and collection of this information, My good friend Amarali 2012...

A casual conversation about our common nemesis Shadow People has grown exponentially ... Amarali2012 and I am lifelong witness's to this phenomenon. The common ground we share in this subject has created this monster of a thread..
At its original start point, it has over 500 reply's and is over 60 pages long and still growing..

For that reason specifically I will not be giving links but bringing the OP here for you to view...



I would like to note that this is a complete revision of the OP, and the same rules apply. I am not attempting to pass any of my claims as fact, I am not a professional or an expert and anyone who chooses to follow any of the advise offered in this thread does so of their own free will. I ask that everyone please be polite and respectful, and also that you not be afraid to share any thoughts, theories, and ideas that you may have.


What are Shadow Men? Why are they here, and what do they want? If you are reading this post, then you probably know of the entity I am referring to. There are reports of them all over the world, and the numbers of such accounts are growing all the time. Are there more of them now than there were before? Should we be afraid? The truth is, we just do not have the answers to those questions. Fortunately, many dedicated members of the UM forums have helped me compile a list of personal accounts and other data in an attempt to crack the Shadow Man code. For a lot of us, this is our favorite paranormal topic. There are even a few experienced, world renowned, professionals, like Rosemary Ellen Guilley, who specialize in the field and study of Shadow Men.

Shadow People (Men or Women)

- Range in height from 4-8 feet tall
- Are seen in various levels of transparency
- Range in level of darkness
- Are seen as solid black forms and are not completely transparent
- Sometimes their forms are incomplete, such as only having a torso and head near the top and becoming more blob-like toward the bottom
- Can be male or female

Almost everyone describes them as "men", but they can also seem feminine. They are usually very long or tall, with almost no features or any real shape. Some of them seem to be shorter "blobs", while others are shaped just as the name states, like people. There have also been reports of smaller, impish, or animal like types, and there have even been reports of red glowing eyes, hats and hoods. I will explain these other types a little later. They can potentially be harmful to you.
The varying levels transparency are also a good way tell what you are seeing. Shadow people are NOT completely see-through. They can be opaque like a lampshade or frosted glass. If the entity in question is transparent or seems to invisible, it is not a shadow person. Think of a shadow cast by a tree. You cannot see through the shadow like a glass window, which does not change your perception of what you are viewing. You are seeing the object behind it filtered with shade, which distorts the image by blocking light, and since you are seeing the shadow it is not invisible. Shadow people are, after all, shadows.


- Very quick and usually will hide when noticed
- Instead of hiding, they will sometimes disappear or fade out
- Some are seen straight on, they are called “free standers”
- Sometimes one is seen running away out in the open just as you enter a room, I call them "sprinters"
- Some can be tricks from the corner of the eyes
- Seem to be curious and will observe people
- Seem to ‘investigate’ those with paranormal gifts or investigating the paranormal
- Seem to ‘investigate’ those with traumatic pasts
- Do not seem interested in interacting with people, and usually will not, even when provoked
- Do not seem threatening or malicious
- Never really do anything other than simple observation

Locations (Places they are usually found):
- They have been witnessed at most location types
- Seen by themselves or in groups
- Usually seen at night or in dark areas, but are seen during the day as well
- Appear indoors and out
- Usually hiding or lurking in shadowy and/or dark areas, but are also seen in open well-lit areas although this is very rare
- Seem to be more common in areas where paranormal study happens frequently
- Seem to be common in areas of heavy supernatural activity
- Seem to be more common in the presence of people who study the supernatural or paranormal and people who have ties to the supernatural world or possess “gifts”


The different types reported have been seen as a single entity alone, or in groups, large and small. Lingering just out of your line of site, or fleeing when you see them, usually seen at night or in the dark, and almost always hiding in other shadows. But they do come out and show themselves to some people. They do sometimes "free stand" as I call it. A free stander will come out in the open, light or dark, day or night, shadow or not. You will know because it will have a "full form", or a seemingly solid body. And it will also be standing where there is absolutely no possibility of another source casting a shadow. Sighting like there are VERY rare. "Sprinters", are just like free standers only they are running away, and in most accounts are wearing hats. This may not be a shadow person (I have never seen one of these) but if it is, the hat may play a part in the ability to "detach" from the shadows. It is also a known fact that shadow men almost always hide in other "real" shadows. "Real" shadows are cast from a source (person or object) against the ground, wall, or another object according to the position of the source of light. It is believed that they actually NEED the shadows, either because they lack the ability to exist without them, or because they directly spawn from them. I'll explain this in more detail when I discuss the theories. Because of their affiliation with shadows, sometimes people will experience an eye trick, and assume that they have seen something, or they will think just the opposite. This may be a part of the stealth. They may rely on us to be rational to help them hide. Sometimes instead of hiding, they will just phase into a nearby shadow, giving the illusion of fading away, or disappearing completely.


Shadow people will usually hang around people and places that have strong ties to the paranormal. They are also a regular part of interacting with the world of the supernatural. They seem to also observe a strict code of discretion. They usually will not be caught out in the open, or let just anyone see them. In most cases, they will attempt to remain hidden and out of sight at all cost. A lot of us, however, have noticed an exception to this rule. Once you accept them and acknowledge their presence, they don't hide from you as much. They sort of play peek-a-boo for a while to see if you really do know they are there. Once they know that you know they ARE there, they stop hiding from you altogether. But they will however, continue to hide from anyone else who does not know about them or believe in them.
