A Brief History of the Shadow People 4.5
UCajXeitgFL-rb5-gXI-aG8Q

Shadowy spiritual beings have long been a staple of folklore. Stories of these supernatural entities have spanned centuries and cultures. But are these shadow people a physical embodiment of evil from a world beyond, or simply a story we tell to cope with the darkness that lives within us all? Inspired by the Amazon Prime exclusive series “Lore,” clinical psychologist Dr. Michelle Golland explores the origin of our “other side.”



This story is a part of our Human Condition series. Come along and let us connect you to some of the most peculiar, stirring, extraordinary, and distinctive people in the world.

The animation was beautiful, but the narrator and the effects w/ the psychologist were a little too reality t.v. dramatic for me.

Shadow people are real. I've seen many of them in many points in my life at specific occurrences. Instead of based on our psychological state, perhaps that is what lures them?

They are entities that feed of our fear when we are in a sleep paralysis state and are very real just like this realm.
However if you smile back at them when they smile at you and you get involved in the fear experience as if you were the main actor in a film, you can then astral project at will. I give a thorough explanation of this in my channel if anyone is interested.
