The sight of a black shadow usually signifies the presence of a spirit or entity, usually evil due to the heaviness in colour or presence. If the shadow makes you feel agitated or uneasy, it is most definitely not a good spirit in which case you should say a prayer and have the location blessed. If the shadow does not affect you, it is a good spirit in which case you shouldn’t be bothered.
Oftentimes, black shadows and other entities are occasional visitors to a home which used to mean a lot to them during their lifetime. They usually do not cause any harm or have any bad intentions, in which case it’s easy to ignore. However, there are cases wherein entities have a very difficult time separating from earthly life and continue to haunt the new residents. They can confront one head-on, even by appearing during daylight in very unnerving times and locations in the house as they have no other intention but to disturb and to scare you. They can also sometimes cause destruction in the house through the form of a poltergeist, which is a very angry ghost and throws appliances, chairs, and other objects around the house.
If the presence of an unwanted entity bothers you and your family, the best thing to do is to get an exorcism done right away. This is a widely practiced ancient religious process which expels spirits from a place or person they are haunting. Exorcisms can take place in a variety of ways, usually with the form of a ritual and prayers while an exorcist commands the entity to leave in the name of a higher power. In other cases, amulets, symbols, and icons may also be used to assist the exorcism. In the Christian religion, the person performing the exorcism is believed to be blessed with special spiritual skills and power and should in no way be practiced by just anyone.
The first step in investigating the cause of something paranormal is to scientifically rule out any other possible causes. If in fact your home does have paranormal activity, there are steps you can take to rid yourself and family of such energy. In most cases, ghosts, black shadows, mist's etc are harmless and cause no problems. In some cases the nature or intention of any ghost or spirit energy can interfere with a family, causing stress, anxiety or just freaking us out. I have been working with the paranormal for more than 30 years and would be happy to assist you with specific information to assist you in this situation.. Blessings, Maya
According to the ole' lady Depending on the feeling that you get when you walk into the house whether you are scared or ok with it, If you are ok with it then you just have a "guest" in your house. If not then there is a clensing you can do that involves sage and or sweet grass, a white candle, and a small saying. "I clense this house in the name of all any good energy may stay, All negative energy must go, this is my will so mote it be." Start in the back of your house and walk the candle and sage(sweet grass) clockwise throughout your house. After you do this let the candle burn out on its own, Do not blow it out.
Well what I heard when you see or feel something its cause its trying to tell you something or they need help from you
Many of those who aren't joking around on here I mostly agree with. To someone who asked about sea salt- it screws around with the entities energy-quartz, hematite will do that to. Refer to my blog on the link where it says you may also be interested in these questions at the bottom of the page- what does a black shadow on top? You should hopefully recognize it- its rather long and I tend to ramble but those solutions should work.
The well lit room thing is because most of the time they are darker than the surrounding shadows which most of them use to move about so if the room is well lit you can see them they hate that. Sandalwood and any other incense are fine however I recommend the white candle solution as detailed in my other blog. Hope it works for you. If it does get the word out there tell others so they can be helped too.
Some ghost choose to appear as a black shadow. They may be attached to the house in some way, you should do your research and see what you can find out about your home. If you wish to try and contact the ghost beware: There are good ghosts and bad. Observe then react, don't rush into things without knowing what to do or how to proceed. If the ghost is violent you can and will be hurt.
You may have a dark energy around you, living in your home. Sprinkle some sea salt in the corners of your home and try to keep it well lit for a week.
You speak how I would interpret this myself... I to have been next to him but feel no fear and watched him walk away from me , never looking nowhere but straight ...
I was reading somewhere it was some sort of evil spirit or even a demon I seen a black ghost at the top of my stairs and someone I know is getting tormented by this evil spirit
I sometimes see a black shadow I feel it may be a child sometimes when I'm in my bed it may peep around the corner but never shows its face sometimes I'm scared and sometimes I'm not I never felt harmed just scared I use to see a ball of light on my wall the size of a small bech ball what does this mean.
Me and my friend saw this same descriptive spirit and what the strange part was is that it was around 8 ft tall and every pic I see its like 5 or 6 ft is this a different one we saw or the same one as in the pic and recently I keep having these weird dreams and wake up having chest pains does any one know something
A black shadow will do no harm in your house.
It could be a shadow of a dead person or it could be a pigment of your imagination. Sometimes your eyes can lie to you and tell you that you see something thats not really there
Seeing a black shadow in your home means that you need to either switch on more lights to see who the burgler is or you need to sleep because you are going through a bad dream
