There are many different ways to see a Spirit with your physical eyes or with your spiritual eyes.
Spirits can appear to you as:
- A flash of light
- A movement out of the corner of your eyes
- A full body apparition
- A blob-ish shaped figure that doesn’t have a discrete form
- An orb of light or a streak
- A shadow
It is also possible to see Spirits in your dreams or they can come to your in meditation or with your eyes closed. Those in the Spirit realm can also appear to you through non-physical sight modalities, such as seeing one in your third eye with clairvoyance.
They can visit you by sensation, sound, touch or through external physical signs.
Of all of the ways you can see those in Spirit, there is one way of seeing a Spirit that scares most people - shadow form.
I’ve blogged about shadows before.
But, who are they? Are they Dark? Are they Light? Are they neither and stuck between the realms, somewhere in an undecided space?
Those in Spirit will appear to you in the way that will be the most visible and hardest for you to shake and shrug off. No one wants to be denied, ignored or pushed aside. Not even a Spirit visitor.
If seeing a White Light Apparition (the most common way for a spirit to appear), would be something you would easily discount as a:
- Reflection off a surface
- Ray of moonlight
- Passing car or truck
It is likely the Spirit who is appearing to you has intentionally decided to appear to you in another way - as a shadow - in order to better grab your attention. Rather than appearing to you as a Light being, they have lowered their energy, making themselves more dense, heavier, and easier on the eyes to see. It is easy to see denser, more solid objects than it is to see less dense objects, due to the amount of light a collection of molecules more densely packed reflects.
A Light form may also appear as a shadow (when they really are Light), if the Spirit themselves is backlit, by a street or hallway light, rather than illuminated from the front - such as with a camera flash or a flash light.
Shadow presences are most commonly seen in lower, dimmer Light, where Light presences are more commonly seeing in brighter, higher lit areas. Yet, neither the choice to take a shadow or a light form is an indicator of a dark or a light spirit - though this could be a natural assumption.
You can tell whether a Spirit is light/dark, positive/negative, benevolent/malevolent), based on how they feel to you.
Dark Spirits draw upon and remove the energy from the space to manifest.
Light Spirits add and increase energy to the space to manifest.
When there is a dark Spirit present, the space usually feels heavier, darker, vacant and more echo-y. It feels creepy. Spirit-sensitives will usually feel a sinking or pulling feeling in their stomach or heart areas.
When there is a light Spirit present, the space usually feels warmer, more full like a crowded room. Spirit-sensitives will usually feel more flush, more adrenaline being added to their body, or sensations of high energy - commonly misinterpreted as sudden anxiety.
A Spirit, no matter from which realm they have come, can appear to you in a variety of ways.
Seeing a shadow is not necessarily an indicator of a dark Spirit.
It is simply another way for Spirit to appear.
