Things to consider when seeing shadows
Firstly, we need to debunk non spiritually related sightings. We could be seeing shadows for other, non-spiritual related reasons.
When I see a shadow, I analyze what is going on in my life, how I am feeling and so on.
The most rational reasons why we are seeing shadows:
- We are tired or fatigued. Maybe after a long day of work, a long day spent on our pc or smartphone, we see shadows in our peripheral view. That’s completely normal, it simply means it’s time to rest and give ourselves a break.
- We are stressed. Stress can be playing games with our mind, by creating shapes and shadows while we are busy doing something else. Once again, it’s time to take a break, eliminate the stressful situation we are in and relax.
- Organic reasons: In rare cases, it could be signs of sickness, in these cases, reach out for medical assistance.
What if I am seeing shadows all over my house?
First and foremost, don’t freak out. When we are seeing shadows, it is often thought of as a negative thing, as a diabolic sign but it might not be the case. You can also see shadows because:
- A loved one wants to let us know they are there
- A spirit guide is around us
- An angel wants to support you during some hardship
- Someone has a connection with a place after passing away
Of course, seeing shadows can possibly mean there is something evil is around us.
In some cases, seeing shadows can be a sign of sleep paralysis.
How to spot the difference between seeing good shadows vs. malevolent shadows?
You will sense it. If you are seeing shadows and the experience gives you a sense of calmness, of support and guidance, maybe if you felt lonely and them you see a shadow, or you feel that someone is watching over you for protection.
On the other side of the coin, if you sense a weird feeling of heaviness, fear, even depression and all these feelings coincide with noises, creepy sounds or even with marks on your skin it might be that you are haunted by an evil entity.
I am seeing shadows: What is their spiritual meaning?
If you are seeing shadows, it can possibly mean that you are getting better at opening your intuition and letting your mind work at a higher level. It can mean you are a sensitive, vibrational human being and that you are becoming more receptive when it comes to energetic presence around you.
I am seeing shadows which I believe to be good
If you are seeing shadows you consider good, you just have to simply acknowledge the fact that a good entity wants you to feel its presence and guidance. Maybe you might find an item in a different place, you can see a sign or even numbers showing up repeatedly and you find out that these things are related to a person or to your life in a certain way.
Many good spirits are pranksters, when I was 8 years old, we lived in a converted Post Office. I awoke one night and saw the shadow of a man in the corner of my bedroom.
I screamed but maintained my focus on him. My parents rushed into my room, and as soon as they turned the light on, the shadow disappeared. My window was locked and there were bars on the windows and still to this day, that it is a true story, I believe now he meant me no harm, but due to me screaming, I never saw him again.
This was my first solo contact with a spirit, and years later a family friend that had moved into the same place after us, she was living there by herself due to her husband passing away, told me that the spirit would often play pranks on her.
The most common one he played on her was to move her jewelry from her bedside table, in the middle of the night to either a baking tray in her oven or he would put it in the freezer, so every time she woke up and saw her jewelry missing, she would acknowledge him and say, ”OK, where did you hide it today”.
She felt he did this to lift her spirits, and she would hold conversations with him. He made life more bearable for her and she was thankful for this.
Another example would be if you keep seeing the same number repeatedly, focus on it, and try to figure out if it means something to you. Is it linked to a special occasion of yours or to someone you have lost? Or maybe you are looking to find an answer to a problem you are facing, and things keep happening, it is like you are almost forced to act in some way. Maybe the presence wants to show you the way to create a happy outcome for you and your life.
Also, good shadows/entities will not harm you.
I am seeing shadows which I believe to be evil
If you are seeing shadows and you feel something is off, you feel like this presence is draining your energy or you feel fearful all of the time, it might be that you are being haunted by a dark presence.
This could be happening because:
- You have summoned a demon
- You have practiced Black Magick
- You are under a Black Magick attack (you can read more about stopping black magic attacks here)
- You have used a Ouija board
- You have been cursed
My best advice on how to deal with shadows
If you are seeing shadows, as I said, don’t freak out.
Instead try to dedicate at least a few minutes a day to get in tune with them and see what is coming from this special event, if it is a good spirit, acknowledge them by talking to them.
Try to focus on your sensations, on your feelings and emotions when you are seeing them, to try to understand the origin of this shadow. If there is a presence around us, even a ghost haunting our home, it doesn’t mean that the spirit is an evil one, as long as it doesn’t harm you or make you feel uncomfortable.
Now, I can easily spot the difference between a good shadow and a bad shadow because at another old home I lived in, which was a haunted house, I was seeing a dark frightening figure walk into my room and it had the shape of a man, also, there were noises and even screams in the middle of the night. It was an experience.
Now, I am beginning to see shadows at my new house, but it’s a completely different experience.
When I see shadows and sense a presence at my current house, I remain calm, light a white candle and get cozy, sometimes I even talk to it saying I am glad it’s around and that I hope it is doing fine in its journey in the afterlife.
So far, no bad events have happened, so my guess would be that it is a good presence and the shadows I see is this spirit still hanging here, maybe of someone who passed away years ago in this same house.
But while this presence is not harming or scaring me and my family, I am completely fine with it being here. I am even grateful that my intuition helps me sense and feel these presences around me.
