Shadows Everywhere

RAS Blog Post Banner

Our story this week comes from Jeannie Grant who lives in Bradford, Texas. Carl Jung once said, “We never see others. Instead we only see shadows of ourselves. The same way old painters would sit in a tiny dark room and trace the image of what stood outside a tiny window, in the bright sunlight. Not the exact image… everything is reversed or upside down.” This is another shadow story, and Jeannie has titled it Shadows Everywhere.

Hello Ron. I have heard you talking about shadow creatures. I’ve had multiple paranormal experiences but these types creep me out the most. I believe that I have a shadow person following me throughout my life.

Shadows Everywhere

The first time I remember seeing it myself was when I was in my old bedroom upstairs (meaning not in the basement). I was around 7-8 years old and in the middle of the night I woke up and looked at my window which had blinds and was illuminated by the moon. In front of the window however was a black silhouette of a little girl with what looked like short curly hair, old “timey” looking. I was terrified and thought I was seeing things so I just rolled over and tried to go back to sleep. The bedroom door was open when I woke up. I asked my parents if they came into my room and they said they didn’t.

A couple months or so after I had seen it, I had a sleepover with my friend at the time (still in the same room). We had slept on the floor because my bed was too small for the both of us. In the middle of the night, my friend woke up and saw that there was a dark shadow man standing over me and just staring down at me sleeping. She told me this when we woke up in the morning and I noticed again my door had been opened. I just figured it was one of my parents checking on us, so I asked them if they came into the room and they both said no.

Another night years later. My parents were on vacation and everyone went somewhere, but I opted to stay home. The first night out I was making dinner when I saw a flash of darkness move across the room. It stops right in front of me and I feel chills go through my body. I don’t remember what happened to the creature. Which is a whole new level of scary.

Years later I moved into my sister’s room (downstairs in the basement) after she moved out. I was 16-17 and had forgotten about the shadow person at this point. My best friend spent the night and she told me in the morning that she saw a shadow figure standing in the corner of the room in the middle of the night. I should point out that I had not told either of my friends about the shadow stories until after they told me that they saw it. I’m 19 now and still have periodic encounters with these creatures. The latest while I was at a movie theater but that is a story for another time. – Jeannie Grant
