For a while I've noticed that when I close my eyes I see these dark, blob-like shapes. Before a month or so ago I never really payed any attention to them. But, lately, I have been, and when I focus on them they can take other shapes, like an outline of a person's body, or, more recently, an undefined face looking at me/getting into my face as if trying to scare me. I can't tell if it's my over-active imagination or if the things I'm seeing are real. I've tried going to Google with my problem, but either I get things that aren't relative to my situation at all (supernatural + scientific, like closed-eye hallucinations), or they /sort of/ apply to what's happening but not enough to be a comfort. It's normally easier to see them when I'm in the dark (like, lying down before I go to bed) but if I strain enough I can in a lit room, too.
Also, lately, I've been catching fragmented words in the 'background' of my thoughts, if that makes sense. They're quiet enough that I'm assuming I wouldn't have heard them if I'd had my attention elsewhere. They're in different 'voices' than the one I normally think in, and it's sort of unnerving. One of the times, it was a feminine voice saying my name, and the last time it was a more masculine one that just said 'lightning' (a couple days before we got a thunderstorm, I might add). I think there's more than just the singular words I keep picking up, like I'm listening through a wall and only catch one of the many things they're saying. This thing might be completely unrelated to the shadow-thing, but I thought I might as well add it in the off chance that it isn't.
(If it matters, my dad died a couple months prior to me starting to notice these, and I've since moved into a different house, in a different town, so could that be what triggered it?)
Can someone maybe give some insight on what's happening (whether it be tied to 'psychic' things or not)? Thanks, so much.
