Seeing Silhouettes??
By: / Beginner
Post # 1

I was wondering if anyone had an idea of what I am experiencing/seeing. If there is a proper name, or ability, that this would be or fall under. I will try to explain this as easily as I can. Since a young age I would see the silhouettes of people and animals.

I have looked online for something, but have not found anything close to exactly what I have experienced. The other people who describe what they see as silhouettes usually describe them in two fashions. One, being that they see these things as a stark black being, but in 3D, as in they can see some features such as muscle tone, but may not be able to see things such as facial features. Others describe these silhouettes in a more shadowy state, like misty or transparent.

What I have seen is literally like a silhouetted picture. They are not 3D, but flat, and are not shadowy, but solid, I cannot see through them at all. I am unable to see features, such as muscles, but I do see outlines of things, such as clothing or if the figure is carrying something.

Others have described their silhouettes as beings that they can interact with, or at the very least the being interacts with them, speaking, moving objects, and so on. Not with me.

In fact, these being dont seem to know Im there at all. I dont know if they are simply choosing to ignore me or literally have no idea I can see them. They simply go about their business as if I do not exist. They have never (to my knowledge) tried to speak with me or communicate in any way with me. They are simply there. Yes, to answer your question (as Im sure some of you will want to ask it), I have tried to communicate with them but to no avail.

These sightings also do not last long, never more than a minute or so, and in some cases for only a handful of seconds. I have always been fully awake during these times. It has never happened while awakening from sleep, or while trying to fall asleep. I also have never felt threatened or in danger around these beings. In fact, I have never felt anything from them, I simply see them, but have no vibes from them, they are simply just... there.

These have been both human and animal. In fact one time I nearly had a car crash because a silhouette of a dog ran out across the road. It was mere instinct on my part to veer even though, after the fact, I realized it had been a silhouetted dog and not a real one.

I can sometimes tell when a silhouette is male or female, as some I have seen are wearing a dress (assuming this is female), and so on. A good majority of these beings appear to be from a different time (this is also an assumption from what they seem to be wearing). They seem to be from the past (perhaps Victorian), as many women are wearing large bell skirted dresses, bonnets, and so on. The men, similarly, might be wearing large top hats and carrying canes. The fashion of clothing may very slightly but most seem to be well out of style, so to speak.

There is never anything else with them, such as buildings or cars, just the people or animals, usually by themselves (in other words, it is exceptionally rare, in fact only once or twice, that I have ever seen more than one silhouette at a time).

I have considered the idea that perhaps I am seeing impressions of the past (not directly into the past, though that may be a possibility). Like I am witnessing a moment from the past that has somehow stayed strong enough to allow me to see it in the present, if only for a moment.

Anyway, would just like to hear your thoughts and suggestions on this. Thanks so much for taking the time to look at this post and/or comment.

Many Blessing To You,

Chy

A little about me: I do have other psychic abilities and spiritual powers, as does my mother. Though I am not sure of the rest of family, as they were mostly very strict Christians. So even if they felt they had these types of abilities I highly doubt they would have ever said anything about it.

I see them too. They are classified as shadow people because they are outlines with no physical features. Sometimes I can see through them but sometimes I can't. You are not going crazy you are developing a sense that they are around you.

Shadow people are silhouettes we see in the corner of our eye and we tell ourselves it was nothing and that it's just our minds playing tricks on us. We think this because we didn't get a long, hard look at them. And so we just assume it is nothing.

Thanks for your input MoonDust. Glad to know there is someone out there who sees something like what I do. I didn't think I was the only one, but began to wonder if it was an unusually rare thing to experience them the way I do, lol. Though I have yet to see through any of them, they are always a solid black, 2D form. :)

Hi Herbal, thanks for the clarification. Though it still begs what it is I am actually seeing. As these figures never linger in the peripheral, but always very predominant and obvious to my sight. Although, admittedly they have sometimes moved from my peripheral to my direct line of sight, such as the dog that ran across the road. But they are most definitely in the forefront of my eyes, no doubt about it. ;)

Well, having read more on the site of similar things to what I have written above. I am really beginning to think these are not Shadow People/Folk. There seems to be only one vaguely common thing between what I experienced and the others, and that is that both involve a dark/black being. Nothing else that people describe match up to what I have seen. *sighs* I hope to figure out more about this, if only out of shear curiosity's sake, lol.

Have you tried walking to them or touching them? Do they randomly show up? Do you know if anyone around you when/if they appear hasn't seen them? Do they ever make any noises? Have you tried meditating and see if they appear on demand? If this were happening to me I'd record my bedroom at night lol see if I can catch em

Hi MeatWad, well, lets see if I can answer all your questions. ;)

  1. Yes, I have tried walking up to them or touching them, when they have stayed around long enough for me to do so, but I never had enough time to actually touch them. They'd usually disappear before that.
  2. Yes, they seem to randomly show up. I don't seem to see any pattern to when they show up. They just do.
  3. No, no one else, to my knowledge, has seen them when I have.
  4. No voices or noises of any kind.
  5. I have tried meditating, and minor summoning, but they don't show up "on demand".
  6. I have not tried the recording yet though. I just may, who knows, I might pick up on something. :)

I believe what you are seeing are impressions of the past. That is why they do not respond to you and why some seem like they are from a different time period. Some call these astral shells. They're basically the left overs of a life once lived. The residual energy. Depending on how much you do in your life and how tied down you are to this world, even after the spirit moves on, that energy linked stays around. And it generally plays out certain events over and over again until it dissolves. Most hauntings that repeat a certain sound or action at a certain time every night are actually mindless impressions of the past. Most of the time they're a traumatic or violent event that triggers the most noticable ones. Emotions seem to make them far more tangible.

Why they are black and 2D for you, I am not certain. The only thing I can consider is that this is just the way your mind perceives it or perhaps you cannot see the definition and color in them because you are just not that skilled in seeing spirits. Have you ever seen a full color 3D apparition in your life? If this is all that you see then this may just be the level of your clairvoyancy.

If it only happened at night I would consider the lower worlds, but that doesn't seem to be the case. And shadow people are known to interact just as much if not even more than ordinary spirits.

I've seen them since I was 3. I've never spoke to or interacted with them, because they scared me.
