Readers, please enjoy this guest blog post by Debi Chestnut, author of Is Your House Haunted?: Poltergeists, Ghosts or Bad Wiring.
I saw the shadow person that lives in my house again today. A shadow person is a type of entity that appears as a shadow. My shadow person appears to be fond of the stairway that leads from the first floor of my house to the second floor.
If truth be told, my cats saw it first. I was watching television and noticed the cats staring at the stairway. I glanced that way and noticed the shadow of a man coming slowly down the stairs. I could see the outline of his fingers on the white railing. As soon as he knew I spotted him he took off faster than the speed of light down the remaining stairs and disappeared.
Thereâ€™s much speculation among paranormal researchers as to what exactly shadow people are. My observation is that they seem to be shy, make no attempt to interact with the living, and are relatively harmless. Some paranormal researchers believe they are a negative or â€śbadâ€ť spirit, while other ghost hunters believe them to be â€śwatchers,â€ť observing humans as they go about their daily lives.
Personally, Iâ€™m not sure exactly what their purpose is, but there have been reports of shadow people with red eyes. Although Iâ€™ve never seen one with red eyes, I donâ€™t discount their existence. They are curious beings and I only hope one day we learn more about them.
Have you ever seen a shadow person? If so, Iâ€™d love to hear about it! You can email me your shadow person story at firstname.lastname@example.org.
