Shadow people are paranormal shadow-like creatures that people usually see in their peripheral vision. Reports suggest that they do not appear to reflect light and that their appearance is essentially a silhouette in black. They usually have no discernible features beyond the general outline of their form. However, shadow people have been reported to have shifted into a more human form and in these instances it is said that sometimes features such as glowing eyes and sometimes mouths or nostrils are discernible. Reports of shadow people, sometimes called shadow folk, shadow men, shadow beings, or the reaper have many similarities with ghost sightings, so many similarities that many paranormal experts consider ghost and shadow people one and the same. However, other experts disagree and claim that shadow people are a separate phenomenon from ghosts for a variety of reasons.
First, they claim that the movement of shadow people is said to be fast and jerky, sometimes with stops, starts, and changes of direction, not at all like the smooth floating motion often associated with ghost sighting. This is apparently the primary reason they are usually seen out of the corner of the eye.
Second, some people report being able to discern that the shadow people are wearing a fedora style hat like a 1930’s-era gangster, Cowboys hat or a cloak.
Third, shadow people usually appear quite solid, unlike the ephemeral appearance of ghosts. Most are Blacker then Black itself.
Fourth, there are very few reports of positive interactions with shadow people usually ammonias .
Unlike the friendly ghost sightings that are fairly common, encounters with shadow folk are almost always frightening or shocking. In fact, even the experts that view shadow men as a subset of ghosts, usually concede that shadow men are a malignant beings. The supporters of shadow people as a separate and unique phenomenon offer all sorts of speculation about the nature of shadow people using ideas from religion, parapsychology, metaphysics, and or the occult.
One of the many ideas is that shadow people represent a thought form, ghost or demon that was created by extraordinary pain, suffering, and trauma in a dying persons life. Others suggest that shadow folk have been purposefully summoned from another realm through black magic or other occult practices. The fact that they do not seem to reflect light has led some to theorize that they are from an alternate universe with different laws of physics or perhaps they are caught in a trap between two physical universes. Use of certain equipment will help in determining in a possible shadow people sighting.
This is using a baseline reading to set a standard for your investigation. You need least two measuring instruments that measure the same parameters (e.g Magnetism, temperature) and have similar specifications, also by using a laser grid to detect movement plus the two devices of the same model and type, for example, two Mel Meters “Mel8704r’s” that have been properly calibrated. Setting up a basic trap to try to capture these shadow people on a site.
Other equipment helpful are, Motion Detectors: These can really give you a heads up and they are not expensive, Air Ion Counter: These are expensive, but useful. They measure positive and negative ions in the air and often provide additional evidence to support thermometers, barometers, and even wind chimes. Barometers: Follow the same logic as with thermometers and have both a traditional and electronic. Thermometers: Obviously, a good thermometer can detect changes in the air temperature, but your team should carry both a traditional mercury thermometer and a digital thermometer to ensure good backup. Also, today both types are very cheap. Radiation Detector: to check what is in the area. Compass: Obviously, you can use them for navigation, but on a paranormal investigation the primary role is as a low tech back up for your EMF gear. A compass reacts to changes in the Earth’s magnetic field and since it is your backup do not buy an electronic compass. With a glow in the dark needle. GPS: You can use GPS to record the exact time and location of each paranormal incident as a way point, also some outdoor GPS’s are loaded with extra features like altimeters and thermometers. All can help in documenting a paranormal phenomena including shadow people and evp.
Skeptics on evp have proposed physical and psycho-logical explanations to account for EVP. The physi-cal explanations range from intercepting stray radio transmissions to unintentional mistakes made by investigators. There are many electronic devices filling the airwaves with signals, and it is likely that investigators could be picking up one of these ran-dom signals. Radios and recorders are able to re-ceive transmissions from other sources (called cross-modulation), and radio signals are capable of traveling across great distances (called ionosphericducting). So be sure and document everything you capture.
As to who is communicating through EVP, a variety of suspects have been suggested, from unconscious human telepathy, individuals in another time, deceased persons in the realm of the after life or some other dimension there go shadow people, telepathic extra-terrestrials, or other ethereal beings such as angels or demons.’ These entities are believed to be capable of manipulating “energy” in the physical world in which, in order to communicate with us. Some suggest that entities draw energy from the physical world in order to communicate. Therefore, EVP is expected to be accompanied by a drain in energy from the physical world, which can be seen, for instance, by lights dimming, drops in temperature, equipment malfunctioning or batteries dying. Electronic devices such as voice recorders offer a vehicle for entities to communicate; however, their communication is not always straight forward answers to our questions but my be asking questions to your presence there. I hope this information is helpful with your investigations.
