I've read quite a few stories on this site and I feel that I could maybe get some insight on my experiences. I'm not really sure exactly how long this is been going on, but it's been within the last 2 1/2 to 3 years that I've actually started paying attention to it... But I've been seeing things that the only way I know how to describe them is "shadow images". It's not always human, thou typically when I see a human form it isn't shadows... I can see detail to the point where I can tell you eye and hair color.
They never say anything and I always see them around other people. A good example would be one night while I was up late in the living room talking on the phone with a friend I noticed movement out of the corner of my eye. At the time I was living with my parents and hanging on the wall by the entry way that flows into our kitchen, my dad hangs his jacket for when he goes outside to smoke. It was in the 2am hour and after seeing the movement out of the corner of my eye I looked over to where it was, which was by my dads jacket and I saw that the jacket was swinging from side to side, almost as if somebody was standing there moving it from side to side. And when it stopped, I seen a face peering at me over the jacket, like they were in the dining room and looking around the wall at me.
Being familiar with spirits beings in the house (Deceased family members, mainly my great grandpa on my mothers side) I'm typically not afraid when I see things like this, but this particular incident left me terrified. When I seen this face looking at me, I thought for a minute it was my little brother who is 8 years younger than me messing with me, so I said that I seen him and he needed to stop and go back to bed. The face continued to look at me for a moment and then darted out of sight, immediately I got up and looked around the corner where it had been and I seen the figure of a man standing in the hallway looking into my brothers room. If asked, I could describe this man in detail.
He continued to stare into my brothers room for a minute and then looked over at me and just smiled and tipped this wide brim hat he was wearing and then disappeared. Now I've seen this man around my brother several times before and I never get an uneasy or fearful feeling from him, so I'm assuming that he's my brothers spirit guide... But his face was not the face peering at me over the jacket.
I went into my brothers room after the man disappeared and checked to see if he was asleep and he was. I went back into the living room and set down trying to figure out what had just happened, when all of a sudden a picture of my brother that was on the side table across them room fell forward and a cup that was on the same table went flying across the room... When I walked over there, I became so cold I started violently shaking and my teeth were chattering. It took me every bit of an hour to finally "warm up".
After that is when I really started noticing that I would see movement out of the corner of my eye and when I look over I see shadows, and strangely more often then not they are of animals... Or appear to be animals. Sometimes I can make out what type of animal they are and sometimes I cant.
Last night I was sitting in the living room watching a movie and during the whole movie I would see movement out of the corner of my eye but when I looked over there was nothing. Finally the movie ended and I used the remote to shut off the DVD player and TV but when I did, the stereo that sets on top of the DVD player started going nuts! Not sound wise, but the display screen kept going through all of its features CD/Video/Tape/AUX/Time Display and everything, just rapidly displaying each feature on the screen and then it stopped on the clock. Once it stopped on the clock it had the correct time but it increased in 1 minute increments every second, at the same time I noticed movement again out of the corner of my eye, same spot as before and when I looked over this time I seen the image of a snake slithering down the recliner. It wasn't fully a shadow, I could see clearly that it was a snake but it almost had a "transparent" look to it.
Once it registered that it was a snake, it disappeared and the stereo stopped freaking out, the room got kind of chilly for a few seconds and then I felt what seemed like a group of people that I couldn't see walk past me and then everything went calm.
Nothing else happened, so I got ready for bed and had a dream that I was trapped in this huge "pit" for lack of a better word, in the ground on property that looked strangely like the property my house is on and there were about 10 other people in there with me, one being my brother who is about 4 years younger than me. In this dream there were men standing over the pit looking in at us and they were dropping snakes in the pit with us. At one point, as snake... Very similar to the one I seen slithering on the recliner, bit my brother. The dream ended with me holding my brother and sobbing because the snake bite had killed him.
The next day, my brother came over to the house around 8pm and he had been taken to the ER because in his gym class he had been pushed down the stairs that runs in between the bleachers... It was equal to about 3 flights of stairs and according to DR's the fall should have killed him because of how he landed when he hit the bottom. I'm not exactly sure what to make of all this, and I would love to be able to understand it. I've always been a firm believer in the supernatural/paranormal abilities and while I don't believe I'm fully psychic, I believe the events mentioned above as well as a few others falls into a relative category. Things like this doesn't really run in the family, however my brother Jordan, the one who is 4 years younger than me, does occasionally have dreams that end up becoming reality and he always gets them typically a week or 2 before they happen.
Does anybody have any insight on this? I would love to hear from you all via email as well on here so if anyone would like to email me with insight my email address is LadyLyrical0607 [at] aol [dot] com
