There are many reasons why a Shadow Spirit may come into your life.
Many times appearing as a tall, dark man in a trench coat with a wide brimmed hat, though threatening to some, a Shadow Spirit is nothing to fear.If you have seen Shadows, as they are called shorthand, around, it doesn’t necessarily mean that you are seeing something dark, evil or negative - though it can.
There a variety of types of Spirits that appear this way and a variety of reasons why they do.
Here are just a few:
The Good types -
Light Spirits, such as deceased Loved Ones, Spirit Guides and Angels, when lowering their vibration to appear to us on earth, can gather the collective energetic molecules in the environment to create a dense energy mass, through which they can appear.
If this dense energy mass happens to pass between a physical light source and a wall, door or solid background of some kind, a shadow can be cast.
In this case, if you see a Shadow Spirit, it could very well be an accident, such as in the case of loving, benevolent Spirits passing through your space most often those who know you closely - Guides, Angels and Loved Ones.
If this way of appearance bothers you, simply ask those in Spirit to appear to you in another way.
The Badish-protector types -
Are you going through a vulnerable life transition, such as an intense period of soul growth, an emotional unraveling, a dark night of the soul or a heavy change of any kind?
A Guardian Spirit may be appointed to you to protect your vulnerable, energetic and soul self as you sleep to protect you from dangerous or predatory Spirits from coming into your life during this period of temporary weakness.
Guardian Spirits often appear to those they watch over as dark, heavy and dense energy masses and they often do not speak, have any facial or bodily features though they often look masculine in body type. They will likely not communicate with you - as it is not their job. Think of those guards for the British Royal Family - no speaking - their job is to watch, protect and guard, not to socialize.
In Clarissa Pinkola Estés’ book, The Women Who Run With Wolves (Amazon Link), Estés’ also discusses the regular appearance of Shadow Spirits, especially women who are experiencing soul transitional periods. If you are going through a period like this, male or female, and you see a Shadow at the foot of your bed, this is likely who it is. Again, this is a protecting Spirit - not anyone to fear. But if you think of it, it is someone to thank.
If this sounds like you, as soon as you move through and out of your soul growth period, it’s likely this Shadow protector will move along, too.
The Ugly types -
Shadow Spirits can also be Dark, Human or Non-Human Entities.
A general rule of thumb is: if it feels creepy to you, it probably is. The solution to get rid of these Spirits is to remove yourself from the situation you are in either physically, spiritually or emotionally, and to do a soul and space clearing. You can do this by removing toxins from your life of all kinds, saging and clearing the space, and returning to alignment with your soul path.
These are just a few of the types of Shadow Spirit there are, and the reasons they may appear to you, and as you can see it’s not all bad. Sometimes it’s just the way the light is cast, or a protecter spirit.
