6 Important Facts About Shadow People

6 Important Facts About Shadow People

shadow person (also known as a shadow figureshadow being or black mass) is the perception of a patch of shadow as a living, humanoid figure, and, interpreted as the presence of a spirit or other entity.

And frankly…they get a bad rap…

Mainly because they are completely misunderstood. A number of religions, legends, and belief systems describe shadowy spiritual beings or supernatural entities as shades of the underworld. Which doesn’t help their reputation…at all! All this does is send misguided information out into the world which then becomes a part of some people’s belief system.

This is the issue with many aspects of the spirit realm, incomplete, misinformation, that’s not based on anything but hearsay.

However, as a spirit communication teacher who’s been in the industry for 30+ years, it’s important for me to make sure those who are interested in the spirit world are properly educated. This allows you to learn, grow, and develop your spirit communication techniques properly. Which is extremely important!

Here’s the thing about shadow people or figures, while it’s true they are spiritual beings, they are also spiritual beings who you are not seeing clearly. Not to mention, just because you “perceive” them as having a certain appearance doesn’t mean they are evil bad creatures.

In order to understand shadow people, you need to know more about the spirit realm and the spirit culture…

For spiritual energy to come through from one dimension (spiritual realm) into another dimension (physical realm), it takes an exuberant amount of energy. And for you to even be aware of their appearance, requires you to be experiencing a higher than normal frequency with your spiritual body at that very moment.

Talk about precise timing!

When you are not trained in spirit communication techniques, these spiritual energies can appear dark, grey, shadowy, and blurry. It’s how the physical brain processes what your spiritual body is seeing or sensing.

Here are 6 things you should know about shadow people:

 Seeing shadow people are some of the first signs your spiritual awareness is heightening. – Which is awesome! It means the frequency of your spiritual body is heightening. This will allow you to have more spiritual experiences.

2) Shadow people are not shadowy in their natural state. – They are spiritual beings just like you and I in our natural state. It takes spiritual development techniques and training in order to see these spirits more clearly, recognize them, or even discover their characteristics.

3) Shadow people are typically spirits, not spirit guides, or angels. – They might be spirits/people who you knew, spirits/people who you’ve lived other lifetimes with, or even spirits/people who you don’t know.

4) Shadow people are not evil. – Just because you are perceiving them as a darker color, does not imply they are evil. Color has NOTHING to do with the vibration of a spirit. The vibration of a spirit will typically dictate a spirit’s “intention”. For instance, one with “not so good intentions” would have a lower vibrational frequency, and one with “good intentions” would have a higher vibrational frequency.

5) Shadow people do not stalk you. – They do not follow you around. You are just as much in their space as they are in yours. If you had the ability to see all of the spirits who were around you, or your house, at any given moment you’d be shocked.

6) Shadow people do not physically touch or try and harm you. – It’s very common to see shadow people in your room at night, or while you’re falling asleep or waking up. This is when people have reported experiencing shadow people trying to harm them. They do not sit on your chest, choke you, or try to make it so you cannot breathe. This is actually what happens if you awake during an astral travel state and you are trying to get back into body. These are not shadow people; they are signs you are astral traveling. If you find a shadow person standing over you, and you are startled by them, chances are they are most likely someone who you know, such as a loved one, or a past life connection.

Here’s the thing, it’s very important when you are interested in spirits to be properly educated on the spirit world and how things work.

Otherwise, it’s easy to be misguided on what you might be seeing, hearing, or even experiencing. Especially, in this day and age where everything can be posted on the internet and it’s easy to assume it’s from a reputable source.
