What's the opposite of shadow people?

Recommended Posts

My family is familiar with shadow people (surely there's a better term, I'll use spooks) and none of us have ever felt threatened or anxious or frightened, and some of the entities were felt to be protectors or ancestors. I think it's hard to have a conversation about spooks because there are so many differences in experiences, beliefs and perceptions. And a lot of different kinds of spooks, too. Maybe they're as variable as humans and we don't have enough information to generalize with any accuracy.

But it's fun to speculate.

Please note: I'm starting this topic working with a belief of the existence of shadow people. Please folks, do not offer up debates about how this does not exist. Save it for another section of UM that invites those opinions too.

I'm not saying if I believe shadow people exist or not- just thought this was an interesting notion.

I came across this notion in a thread, and I didn't want to derail it with musing about this notion. Someone asked if there was such a thing as the opposite of shadow people? I don't mean the creepypasta media campfire version. I mean the sort of more origins of that stuff, stories about shadows that can steal emotions or energy, cause negativity, the darkness that can shape up and do ill.

The story was kind of the opposite of that. A light something that seemed to be helpful, perhaps protective. Not a dead person/ghost sort of thing, or a guardian angel sort of thing by the persons description. And it stayed in the location.

I've read lots and lots of stories about all sorts of paranormal things good and ill.. But I have to say, I had never heard it asked before if there was an opposite of shadow people. Best that came to mind were things like ghosts, angels, spirit guides, house spirits or guardians.. But nothing really described as opposite of shadow folks.

Going with some general lore I know, shadows are born of ill, or fallen souls or a piece of the black morass of evil that sometimes can break off and be independent. Not demons or evil ghosts the counterparts of them being angels or good ghosts. Not really spirit guides that can travel, good or ill. Perhaps most like a house spirit of happiness and good rather than ill intent?

Considering that nature ain't too fond of vacuums and rather likes balance.. Shouldn't there be the opposite of shadows? What would their purpose be, how would they have formed? Why does there seem to be a dearth of, um, lights stories compared to shadows? What would you even call such paranormal critters?

Again, I will ask that people that want to comment about how none of this exists, or wouldn't work because of lack of reality refrain from doing so please. I do encourage everyone to post up what lore they know or speculations about this notion.

The opposite of a shadow person are the angels that did not fall, the angels were watchers, and they began to lust after human woman and chose to follow that course, This comes from experience, I too am trying to create a blog I believe that Michael is fighting these fallen angels alone, as in Dan (im riding in a car, so I cant give you the exact chapter at the moment)

I have seen things a few times in my life, usually when I least expected to - when I was distracted, busy doing things. I have seen (what I consider would be) a ghost - it was translucent, and whitish. I have also seen a shadow figure. It was totally dark, a silhouette only (no eyes) and wearing a gaucho-type hat and long cape. In both instances, I did not feel threatened, just startled, especially with the shadow person, because at the time I had never heard of one and thought there was a flesh and blood person standing right outside my window. When I got to the window, there was nothing there and that's when I realized it was not outside, but inside. As far as the ghost sighting, it was on the other side of my house, outside late at night. I was waiting for my dog to finish up, and she and I were walking into the house on a small walkway. She stopped in her tracks, started growling/barking, and backing up. I looked up and saw a whitish, transparent figure that resembled a person, except where the eyes, mouth and nose would be it was just dark holes. I was surprised, and stared at it - it stared at me. I knew it wasn't a live person. My dog was growling and wouldn't move, so I picked her up and went inside. I got my husband and we walked back outside to check around the house, but saw nothing. We were at that time surrounded by woods on three sides. I'm not sure why, but have always sort of just associated these things with the land or the woods. In the instance of the ghost like figure, I had the impression it was curious. It was looking around the corner of the house - I could see what looked similar to a hand on the house, but there were no feet. We had not lived in the house more than a few weeks, and I felt as if it was just checking things out. Have never seen it since and have been here 25 years. Have not seen the shadow person since, either. But again, I never felt anything negative associated with either things. I often think about these things when I'm having trouble sleeping, and have looked around often, but never see anything. I wonder if these things try to stay undetected. But what is it with the hat? And I have seen other posts and things on TV that depict them in the same way - with the hat and a long cape. Is it some type of uniform? And neither made a noise or attempted communication. But I guess since I didn't associate anything negative, I wouldn't think there would necessarily be an "opposite."

I understand you are looking for some new opposite to these shadows. opposites always existed and usually obvious black ---white good --- evil death --- life

Fallen Angels---angels that did not fall Then another thought goes to

One Side===those who have chosen the evil

Middle=====those who are Luke warm

Other Side==those who chose the good

Then God says about the Middle one "He will spew them out of his mouth" he makes them worse than the worst for not even making a choice, And free will, we most certainly have, and God will honor our decision,

(REMINDS ME OF A FUNNY JOKE) If we want to choose hell we can by our free will choose to go to hell, God would probably even help us out and give us an escort just to make sure get to where we want to go.

I can accept people have the right to choose for themselves, a lot of people, I hear say, well I don't know if I believe or not, or I believe but I just don't follow it.

AND NO MATTER WHAT-- we ALL fall short--- I know I am NOT BETTER THAN ANYONE, and I am worse than the majority. We all will have our time that we will have to choose, and to pass up that choice and stay in the middle will be worse than just choosing the evil.

And this I wonder too any thoughts would be nice----Eve was deceived-she ate the apple, she now had knowledge of good & evil. BUT Adam had not eaten it yet, Eve then got Adam to eat of it. What if Adam did not join Eve in that eating, would he not of fell from that grace and never have the knowledge of good & evil. DO WE have the ability to not partake of the eating of the apple and never have the knowledge of good & evil?

I will say that knowledge of good & evil is a whole lot more than knowing how to be a good boy and being a bad boy. Evil is real, It is really freaken real don't be fooled.

lookhere1st.net (Still In progress )

I know it appears as if I strayed from your original intention, I will try to connect it back now.

If you have a dark spirit who causes suffering to their targets and lusts after them sexually you know the opposite of those qualities.

If you really want to know about these shadows, that you have not experienced, (that's good for you) is it possible you may be starting to bite on that apple, I have found that I cant put the apple back onto that tree.

Once you know what you know, luke warm is not a good place to sit. and what is real can be some scary ****. Language I know but it fits, you don't look at life the same anymore and all the little things you notice that people concern themselves with are nothing but mere playing house with out a clue.

I can offer only 1 advice one can choose to take it or choose to leave it -- The truth the way and the life==Jesus--all the info you need is in scriptures, you yet to understand the words, understanding is given to those who diligently seek it.

I am going to post my notion on your topic before I read all of the other posts (and then I am going to read all the other posts post posting. IMO, the opposite of the shadows would be 'love', the love inside of you, inside of me, inside of each individual. The radiance of love is the polar opposite of their vibration. IMO, I think that the opposite could be the idea of love conquering the darkness and bringing a higher vibration with healing light energy that radiates naturally from within us humans.

What is the opposite of shadow people? Shadow entities? I have some instinctive ideas about them and their opposites, though perhaps not in the same line. There are shadow people who present fear and an emination of evil, this would be the service to self entities who have been stuck in a place that is uncomfortable to them and thus they suck at the life force within you as they get close, as in vampiric spirits,which would normally be considered to be in the astral plane, a dimension that is coexistent to our reality, only of a slightly lower vibration thus visible only by the most abstract portion of our vision which is the peripheral. There could also be entities called demons, which is actually just a much older term for angels, either of the evil/destructive or good/supportive varieties.

Now too, there would exist in this astral area another form, non-human and feeding off of the human life force,specifically fear and dark emotions. These entities would be the dark emotional, lower vibrational entities ot the fallen angelic nature, imps, or gin; or, even negative alien types. With "permission," and I emphasize permission, they attach to a person's "spiritual" connection and usurp the thread of the soul that exists in this reality, and they in turn, manipulate and overtake the person in judgement, operation, and action, in the process to deceive others into similar entrapment, employing on the soul thread energies that eventually become an addiction to that soul thread existing in the body, thus enticing new victims for the entity.

But to say the astral is the only dimension would be a false claim, as there are a multitude of dimensions varying by frequency and vibration, hence dark and light, and all color variations between. The goal of most living here are to move closer to Love and Light and Humanitarian expanding awareness beyond the limitations of self and the realities experienced, to become able to manifest, not only healing of present existences but to elaborate awareness beyond. When humility and gratefulness are cast aside for pride, and elitism the vibration is altered to a place that does not expand as readily. Love expands. Hate devours. Elitism is the opposite of higher vibrations because it isolates one from others. Lifting up, service to others, is the force that expands, and is grateful for the opportunity to express Love, thus continuing the expansion that is inherant in so many experiences of the good feelings that people share.

So to speak of shadow people who are unthreatening and curious or even helpful. Herein is the difference of "Permission". A person has control over self when fear and isolation are not the controllers of that person. To explain, every person, in their life, experiences a point NDE clarity, whether at the end or before their passing from this existence; even, some have dreams or visions that are life defining for them. When this happens they see and feel a reality unto themselves, and that is, that They are more than this life, and have either seen where they came from, where they are going, both, or they have felt the ease of knowing their purpose in the expansion and growth of something beneficial for them and others. This is the place where permission is required to enter that person's internal existence or soul thread.

On different dimensions, this epiphany can exist, causing this shadow person to be a mere veil away in another dimension, and who is assisting through the veil of this reality, or from within as a guide or companion. We are "Not" the only capable inhabitors of a body, and that can also be changed by DNA manipulation, or spiritual imposition to have alternate spirits take over that body for nefarious, elitism of contraction/destruction. And alternatively, also likewise can be the "Permitted" beneficial, spiritual guidance, telepathy, or channeling as an equal, joined in purposes for, of, and from expansion.

What is the opposite of shadow people? The other side. Like a kalidescope disco ball each reflector is another dimension, another "other side. We are experiencing this reality as if just one finger of a hand in a glove. When those experiences are satisfactorily complete, the hand of the larger self removes its hand.

To each experience Intent is important in this life, and knowing one is connected within with all life making them more than this life, But "Not" elite to it, expanding through Love and Service to Others as a self responsibility keeps the growth beneficial for all, regardless of this experience's outcome. When that is felt as an emination from a shadow person, I feel that that is a close relation to that person, whether family, ancestor, or another finger of the larger self, as the hand in the glove so to speak.

When deceit entraps awareness with guilt or false guilt, the immediate thing to do is deny the deceit and move on declaring the lesson learned, this is invariably much more acceptable and embraced than the alternative of being entrapped and devoured to become the implementation of destruction and then elite = isolationism. When isolationism is forced without outlet or choice, the erosion of layers of spiritual growth can occur creating damage that is difficult or impossible to heal without outside reaching in to that awareness with assistance, rescue, or assurance. But elitism in such a "reaching in," is just more of the destructive nature., as it is isolationism."

Shadow people to me, are just existences in other dimensions coexisting with this reality, but veiled nevertheless by time, distance, vibration, frequency, or level of expansion or amount of existence in singular or group awareness > Eliteism for control, contraction, evil or > Equality in Love, beneficial awareness, growth expansion, (Elitism - is the illuminati).

The good, and opposite bad, eminations of these shadow people, would be the same eminations they would feel or sense if and when they felt, sensed, or saw us, (that is if they were on the same level of expansion) Higher expansions have different understandings and feelings as adults feel differently from children and vice versa.

These are my opinions, inner feelings. That is my answer.

Yes we do. Except we can send it off to do nefarious things at will. Mwhahahaha......

Those keys you've lost, a ginger's shadow did it. Wake up to find all the cabinet doors open? A gingers shadow did it. Watch Zak Baggins freak out, one of us did it. It's how we steal souls. You know, since we don't have them. :tu:

I notice this is in the Spirituality, Religion and Belief section. Are you implying that the Shadow People are religious/spiritual in nature? Such that they are demons/devils?

Yes it is, if your religion is Voodue, Santeria, Yoruba, etc.... that uses Orishas. :innocent:

No one has ever reported a successful communication with a shadow person. No worries there...

Even the leader of the shadow people, Hat Man who sometimes appears with a dog or two, does not talk. Just stands there...

When I think of a Hat Man I think of Papa Legba. He is the link between the realms of this world and the spirit. Black dogs are often seen as his representative. He appears usually as old man in a hat with a staff at crossroads, but he can also be a young man in a top hat. He is often a trickster, but he is also a gateway and messenger. If you wish to communicate with him you leave offerings at crossroads, a cigar and rum is good.

Shadow people and white light people are spiritual duality in which there is good and evil and nothing in between. I don't see spiritual things in terms of all good or all bad.

I'm not sure how the opposite of shadow people can be defined. All I know is that there are two of them in my office, and they can be trained not to come near my desk until I have had at least one cup of coffee.

Absolutely Just look up things like " beings of light"

They are referenced as far back as recorded history, across all cultures.

I think Christians interpret them as angels, but they pre-existed Christianity. i encountered one about 40 years ago. it was over two metres tall about a metre wide and bright enough to light up hundreds of square metres of the night as bright as day. It spoke with me briefly then cured me, instantly and permanently, of a long standing addiction to nicotine So i guess it fitted almost all the classical parameters of such beings.

One very real thing is that where such a being exists there ARE no shadows. They bring light in all forms, from wisdom, to lack of fear, and protection. They banish al the aspects of shadow and darkness from a human's life.

Nothing. They eventually got married and had kids The lack of sex was more due to the american televisions code of conduct at the time i think and actual laws about television content and morality.. I also thought she was hot but this was in a time when you didn't have sex outside of marriage so i never really thought it was strange.

. I thought i had your age fixed , but then realised this show has been constantly rerun in Australia since the seventies. :)

I did mean Djinn, or Jinn how ever you prefer the spelling.

I am sure sir wearer of hats was aware of this. It was a play on words (getting into the spirit of things, to extend the pun) eg gin vodka and scotch are all spirits, and all might cause one to see things which aren't there, such as perhaps, shadow people.. Edited by Mr Walker

The opposite of a shadow person is a positive-energy Aeon from the Positive Energy Plane. They have a CR of 5 and can cast Daylight at will as a spell-like ability.

The opposite of Shadow People, first time I hear of, been involved in New Age, Spirituality for years now, didn't look at the right place I guess.

If Shadow People are the negative type, then the opposite would be Light People, and they would have the opposite characteristics of the Shadow one, just my impression.

Hello, I have seen shadow people before. My son took a picture of one also. When I was very young, I had a near death experience. As I've gotten older, I have experienced frequently more and more supernatura experiences. Last night as we were watching television, as I was turning my head to talk to my wife I saw someone or something that appeared to be peaking around the wall at us. While I was turning my head it hid behind the corner. Then I could see a purplish orb. When I saw this being, it appeared to have no facial features and no hair. It was completely white. The opposite of a shadow person. I've seen some incredible paranormal things over the years but this was a first.
