I cannot remember life without GHOSTS/SPIRITS... My interest began in the paranormal when I was 2...that's when my mom told me I first started talking about GHOSTS/SPIRITS. I grew up like most of you, learning that one shouldn't talk about the things they can see, hear and feel. Now, after years of ignoring these abilities and senses, I can no longer deny it. The TIME has come...

"The spiritual world lies all around us
and its avenues are open
to the unseen feet of the phantoms that come and go."
~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow


Summer Solstice marks the climax of the solar cycle.Whilst we find the LONGEST DAY this time of year, we are indeed returning to the dark half or portion of the year. The Summer Solstice is about fertility, creativity, faeries, and harmony. It's about bringing into fruition those dreams we had on those long and dark Wintery nights.Move forward with your DREAMS while simultaneously living in BALANCE with MOTHER EARTH.

The Shadow People...

It seems like more and more often we are hearing about beings generally known as SHADOW PEOPLE.Personally, I am uncertain of whether I have encountered a SHADOW PERSON.I DO think quite possibly I captured one at EVERGREEN CEMETERY with my digital camera...but I am not certain.

Most people that report their encounters with these beings say it is most often negative. Some people have reported actually being attacked while others describe being unable to move. The descriptions vary to a certain extent. Some say it looks like a puff of black smoke while others claim to see the outline of a human like entity. Some say they have no eyes, others report they have red glowing eyes. There have even been reports of SHADOW ANIMALS on Art Bell's am radio show COAST TO COAST. In fact, when the topic came up on air during one of the shows they were inundated with over 4,500 emails of people ALL describing SHADOW PEOPLE.Some even sent in pictures.

What are the theories of the SHADOW PERSON phenomenon?
In other words, WHO or WHAT are they???
That all depends on who you ask...
And YOU know that end of the day it's YOUR CALL!

1.) (Dion Fortune)
Various kinds of formations which appear to the CLAIRVOYANT as a dark shadow in the scene; brings a degree of fear when seen; appears in dreams and in psychic visions.

THEORIES:One's karmic debts that are for this INCARNATION only; the inner meaning of Self; represents the subconscious material of the present incarnation. Syn. SHADOW-SOUL

2.) Faint copy of a DISCARNATE ENTITY perceived clairvoyantly as a transparent outline of a person. Syn. APPARITION, SHADE, ASTRAL SHELL, GHOST.

3.) (Carl Jung)
The human EGO, the imp or darkside of a person (opposite of the saint image) bringing a balance into psychic wholeness; appears as a compensatory figure in dreams. Syn. TRICKSTER-TRANSFORMER

4.) (Mystic Schools)
The human PHYSICAL BODY;the ASTRAL BODY is the real body and the physical body is the shadow of it.
