Shadows..

It's often at night.
You may think "Well that explains it, doesn't it."
I'll give an example..

I was driving to my mom's house one night ago. As a car drove by, I saw a person, shadow figure thing right behind the car. It's like the car went by and suddenly there was a figure standing in the road where the car went by. Could an actual person have done that? Maybe, but who would jump behind a car driving by at 60mph at night? And even then, it looked like it was running to the side of the road. A person couldn't have done that. I didn't see what happened to it though after though, as I was driving 60 too.
That really freaked me out..

Other things while driving at night could be Black shapes moving along with me at the side of the road or at the top of the trees. I don't think those are just shadows playing tricks on my eyes, because I can see the shadows fine, and this thing is a solid mass moving with my car. And it's not moving from shadow to shadow, it's its own shadow.

Sometimes I can turn my head quickly and see a shadow move behind something. Sometimes it looks like my shadow is doing things I am not. Or other people's shadows don't fit what the person is doing. But it's only for a split second, and when I look back at it, it matches the person.


I'm a very logical person. These shadows could just be tricks of the light and my eyes. I've given reason to a few, but to most, I see no possible cause.. such as my shadow holding up a hand while I'm running my fingers through my hair.. I would know if I'm just holding my hand out, my hand was at the back of my head at the time.

Demons. I'm pretty damn logical myself and the shadows stay when I look at them too. It can't be explained. It sounds ridiculous. But it's real. Legit.
I'm a Christian and recently read a book called 'Pigs in the Parlor' and researched some things regarding demons. I've had sleep paralysis recently. I saw shadows as a child and I still can to this day. I also get "vibes" from people. I can tell when someone brings something horrible into a room with them. New Age religions call this gifts and psychic power or being an Empath. None of these things are "good" and shouldn't be dealt with. Look in to deliverance. I believe you. Nothing is wrong with your eyes. Society will tell you to take some psych drug because you're "hallucinating". I don't buy it. Regular people all over the world see similar things. Google "shadow people".

That's reassuring.. Thank you! =)<br />

I try to be a safe driver always (=

Hi Turbulence,<br />
When you get older this will disappear! I would notice this as well when I was younger. I would not dwell on it. My advice is you is... it is best to leave these things alone and please keep you eyes on the road! :)

I'm somewhat skeptical of ideas like that...<br />
But I'm logical, like I said, and can't find reasons why 90% of the time..

HI THERE TURBULENCE !<br />
PROBALY YOU ARE GIFTED SOMEX YOU GET IT WHEN UR YOUNG OR SOMEX YOU GET IT WHEN UR OLDER ONLY YOU COULD SEE WHAT OTHERS CANNOT SEE UR GOING TO GET DIFFRENT COMMENTS LIKE UR CRAZZY YOU HAVE PROBLEMS WITH UR EYES AND SO BUT I THINK NEATHER OF THESE !<br />

peace and love my friend!

O.o

I do something similar. I see a refection in a mirror, a window or something similar, and I turn to look behind me... Nothing is there... Or I see a shadow of someone (this is similar to your story) and its running or something, but the person is just standing there...

It's not always always at night. I could drive to the gas station and not see anything, drive back and see something.<br />

It could be peripheral vision screwing with me, but why do the shadows stay when I look at them?

Because this only happens at night, I would bet that this may be an issue with your peripheral vision. If it were me, I would consult with an eye doctor for a comprehensive test. Good Luck.

Heck yeah....

Wow, that's really creepy.
