Shadow People

What exactly is a shadow person? Well, there are actually several different theories to this alleged paranormal entity.

One is shared by skeptics. They believe that shadow people are a type of hallucination where the subject perceives a patch of shadow in their peripheral vision to be a living, human-like figure or possibly creating shadow people with an over-active imagination. For instance, skeptics think that the shadows are created by our minds playing tricks on us, illusions conceived by real shadows of actual moving objects and such.

Then there’s the perspective of many theorists. They claim that shadow people are really time travelers from our own future stepping back in time to observe us. While other theorists suggest that shadow people are possibly interdimensional beings that are very close to our own dimension.

However, many people in fact, do believe that there is a sinister side to shadow people. Their view is that shadow people are demonic in nature because of the malevolent feeling (a negative feeling) associated when encountering them. Or that shadow people are spawned from deep negative emotions that may plague a severely depressed person.

Have I ever had any experiences with these so-called beings? The answer is yes, but unlike several others who felt a sense of malevolence, I didn’t feel anything negative at all. With each encounter that I had (and I’ve had quite a few), I felt perfectly fine. The shadow people’s manifestations were always extremely brief before vanishing. I didn’t fear them nor did they try to intimidate me. They were a little taller than me in stature (I’m 5’4″), but they weren’t massive in size. Their form wasn’t well-defined either, just an obscured image of a darkened silhouette.

Does everyone have the same kind of experience that I’ve had? Of course not because there wouldn’t be so many different theories regarding the shadow people’s existence if they did. What do I believe that they are or even “who” they are? I honestly can’t say. All I know is from my own alert and sober-minded experiences that shadow people do exist. We as individuals have our own views and perspectives on how we see things. Some people are a little more frightened by the unknown than other people are and the level of each one of our fears is something that can’t be measured. But as in any setting, I highly recommend that if a person does have an encounter with a shadow person and they do feel a sense of uneasiness, then do not provoke the situation. I firmly believe in following your intuition and trusting that inner voice. You never want to place yourself in a predicament that may cause you harm.

Interview with Psychic Sirena

Today I’m welcoming astrologer and ghost hunter, Psychic Sirena. Thank you, Sirena for stopping by!

 

 

Can you tell us a little about yourself?

I am a second generation Los Angeles native. My friends would describe me as kind-hearted, compassionate and loyal to a fault. Besides reading Tarot, I’m involved in animal rescue and I have 4 cats of my own. I love all animals but cats are near and dear to my heart.

 

 

At what age did you become aware of your abilities?

I was a small child – can’t really remember the exact age but probably around 4 or 5 years old. I saw a man all in red – even his skin – and he was carrying a mailbag. I asked my mom who that was and she didn’t see what I saw. Many years later I realized it was probably Mercury who is the god of communication, hence the mailbag. As I grew older, I was always aware that there was someone with me, sort of like an imaginary friend, if you will. This person is still with me and it is my Spirit Guide.

 

 

What does it mean to be clairaudient and clairvoyant?

Clair-audient means you can hear sounds or messages from the Spirit world. That is how I do my Tarot card readings. I hear messages from my angels and guides as well as the angels and guides of the person I am reading for. Clairvoyant is described in the dictionary as someone who has the ability to see the future. That is true but it also means you can see a vision or picture in your mind. When I am doing a reading for someone I can sometimes see actual visions of what they are asking about. If it’s about a person, it’s not always clear, but I can see an outline of someone and it usually appears to me like one of those color sketches you can get at Disneyland. Other times, I will see something about my own life that will give me a reference as to what the message is I’m supposed to be giving. For instance, if I see a hummingbird that is my symbol for a grandmother. I’m also clairsentient meaning I can feel certain things such as hot, cold, pain, sadness. And I’m claircognizant meaning there are certain things I know but can’t explain. I’m very good at predicting the sex of a baby and when it will be born as well as when people will pass away. I will tell people about babies if they directly ask but not about leaving the physical world. That is about your own life path and not for me to say.

 

 

You’re also into ghost hunting. What kind of paranormal experiences have you encountered?

I can’t see spirits but I can sense them. I’ve seen spirits twice in my life and both times it scared the BeJesus out of me so I think they know not to reveal themselves to me if they want to communicate with me. This is one of the reasons why I don’t like hospitals. I can sense their energy and they all try to talk to me. My grandmother used to communicate with me by flashing the lamp on and off. I went thru tons of light bulbs during that period. People used to tell me there was something wrong with the light socket but after I told her to stop communicating with me in that way, the lamp stopped flickering. I’ve also had my TV go off for no reason and one time I got into my car and the radio was on. I had not put the key in the ignition yet.

 

 

Do you incorporate your psychic abilities into conducting paranormal investigations? If so, how do you protect yourself from anything negative?  

Yes, I do use my psychic abilities in order to communicate with the people who have passed on. I can hear them talk to me even when I’m not always able to sense them. I ground myself by protecting with white light and asking Arch Angel Michael to be with me. Afterwards, I will smudge with a sage stick so I don’t bring anything home. The end of the Haunted Mansion where you might pick up a hitchhiking ghost is a very real possibility if you don’t ground and protect.

 

 

Your website is Tarot By Sirena: http://www.tarotbysirena.com/. Tell us about it.

Besides purchasing a reading, you can purchase your astrology chart. But what’s really popular is the synergy – or compatibility chart – because ladies always want to know what they can expect with their partner whether it be a new lover or someone they have been with for awhile. Astrology charts are also great for kids and I have given them as gifts when someone has a baby.

 

 

Tell us about your tarot reading services and how people can contact you for their very own session.

My readings are done via email, Skype, FaceTime, phone or in-person. People can book a session on my website as there is a drop-down menu where they can purchase the reading that best fits their needs.

 

 

What’s next for Sirena?

I am researching a book that I hope to have written by early next year.

 

 

Any words of wisdom you’d like to share?

I’m not sure if this would be considered words of wisdom. My specialty is love and relationships. My grandmother used to tell me, “Es mejor estar solo que mal acompanado, Mija” which means it’s better to be alone than poorly accompanied. Life is too short for bad relationships or waiting around for someone to make up their minds if they want to be with you. I have taken that advice to heart and although it has been lonely at times, I sleep more peacefully.

Guardian Angel Ink

A little over a week ago I got another addition to my tattoo collection. I now have nine in total! 🙂 My newest one is of a sweet, unique image that I created nearly two years ago, a guardian angel. I decided to finally get the tattoo in honor of the close, personal connection that I have with my own guardian angel, a warm and loving connection that I hold very dear to my heart.

In a previous article that I wrote titled, “Hearing Angels”, I openly discussed my ability of angelic communication. I am an extremely spiritual individual (note that I said spiritual and not religious.) and I have the utmost respect for the beautiful ethereal beings. My ability to communicate with them is uplifting and very special.

I’ve often been asked what it’s like and my answer is this…… It’s like a frequency that I can “hear”. At times it may be louder than other times simply because of the timing of the angels’ messages. For instance, when I seek their guidance, I may be able to hear them more loudly, as if to confirm that I received their response. (Kind of like they’re making sure that I’m paying attention.) And when I do, I get an intense feeling of positive energy, an increased amount of enlightenment. It’s somewhat difficult to explain because it’s so beautiful. The best way for me to describe it is….. it’s absolute love and light!

The photo below is of my new tattoo, my guardian angel! 🙂
