I’ve been finding and watching Youtube videos on both Black-eyed Children and Shadow People, and let me warn you if you’re easily spooked, watching these videos (or listening to these podcasts) when you’re home alone on a dark and stormy night (or any night) might leave you more than a little uneasy. But it’s fascinating. For anyone who’s never heard of either one of these paranormal phenomena, in a nutshell, here’s what they are ~
Black-Eyed Children…(sometimes called Bek) are young people, often children, with eyes that are solid black with no differentiation between sclera, pupil, or iris, and are occasionally reported to have blue or bluish tinted skin like that of a corpse. Those who report encounters with them often feel that the children were somehow supernatural and extremely dangerous though they could not explain why.
Often they can be seen playing games and singing the nursery songs Old Man Long Legs or He Jumped into a Bramble Bush.
They are usually near abandoned or deserted areas. Sometimes, the reports talk of them appearing at one’s doorstep- usually alone or in a pair. They appear to be unusually confident, yet shy children who avoid your gaze and look down, hiding their eyes, but speaking with an eloquence far beyond their apparent age.
Shadow people appear just as their name describes them, as faceless human shadow forms.
Some common features of shadow people are:
- A shape that is generally male in appearance
- They are aware of us and react to our observing them
- The typical shadow person is tall, ranging from about 6′ to 7′
- Very often they seem to be wrapped in a cloak or large old fashioned cloak
- Hats are not uncommon
- Their appearance has depth to it, unlike a shadow cast on a wall that is flat
- Quite typically they have no visible eyes, but some will have glowing red eyes
- Shadow people are rarely reported to have spoken or tried to communicate
- Physical objects seem to not matter to them and they can walk through walls
- Can have a demonic shape and demeanor
If you love creepy fascinating paranormal phenomena, I’m betting you’re still with me after reading the definitions of these etheric mysterious creatures. Now the fun stuff. I’m posting some of the videos that I’ve been watching, and the two I’m posting here today are radio podcasts with Art Bell. I’d love to hear YOUR perspective on these topics! Feel free to leave comments below. Have you had a personal experience with either one of these entities? Do you have a theory about what they are?
Enjoy!… And keep the lights on. 🙂
