I used to rent an art studio near downtown Watsonville for a while. It's an old Victorian broken up into spaces. It was quite some time before I noticed shadows. Not just regular shadows but forms. To this day I still get a chill when I remember the first night I had a paranormal experience with one of these things.
I was working really late on a project and decided to spend the night. During that time I was awaken by what seemed to be someone sitting beside me just staring intensely. I could feel the breathing and tried to turn around and see what it was but my body did not budge.
I now know how those people felt who just seemed to freeze up. I've always thought of myself as a strong person and did not scare easily but this shook me. It lasted several minutes and I could hear it shift in the chair get up walk to one side of the room then back sit down and bend what I thought was it's head close to mine.|
It was one of the most spectacular feelings I've ever had. Then when I would leave my studio in the days to follow especially at night. The shadow would be sitting in the common area. There was nothing I could really do but accept the fact that this space was being occupied by something else as well.
My cousins would never come and visit me because they knew the building and had heard stories before they knew where my studio was. There were also times when the owner of the building would call me and ask if I was working late the night before because the lights were on and what seemed to be someone there working in my space and it was not me.
Truly a great ghost story but this was what I think of as shadow people.... These beings are scary.
