I See Faces When I Close My Eyes


At night, when I close my eyes, I see random faces. Doing research on this very strange phenomenon, I discovered this website which has a topic on this already, but I wish to bring it back to attention. They are multi-cultural and range from children, to elderly, to people of other eras long before my own time.

These faces have very distinctive features, sometimes bodies and even a presence to them. For example, the other night as I lay in bed and closed my eyes, I saw a young boy, smiling in my direction. He had damp dark brown hair and enigmatic blue eyes, those of a mischievous child. He was shirtless, but his shirt was on his shoulder, the shirt was red and white stripes. He had a presence that made me nostalgic for an era that I did not live; in fact, he looked to be a child of the 1950s. This child, I think he was somebody's dear little brother who was greatly missed by somebody that was not me, however, their whole sadness was transmitted to me through his presence, as when I opened my eyes, I cried. I also happen to be the eldest of three sisters, so I could understand his sister's sadness. (I am sure they were a sister to him, whoever missed him so greatly). Sometimes I can tell details about the people around them too.

Nights and nights ago, I lay on my bed 'scanning' through the faces and saw an elderly man and a girl, of nine years old combring through a beach. They seemed peaceful. Some other nights some faces scare me, because they have no eyes at all.

It started about two years ago. I am intrigued to know if anybody is having these experiences.

This happens to me too, exactly what you told. It's been two months now and it's going so strong now, the people or places I see are so real and it feels like old times mostly, old cars and old lifestyle. I am disturb but I want answers, the real ones. I wish if you could tell more about it... I have so many weird experiences... And this is hard to share with someone

This has always happened to me. Sometimes I can control how the faces change. I thought this was just something to do to put me to sleep or relax me, like counting sheep. It can happen when I meditate too.

"Many of us, as we lie in bed with closed eyes, awaiting sleep, have so-called hypnagogic hallucinations - geometric patterns, or faces, sometimes landscapes. Such patterns or scenes may be almost too faint to notice, or they may be very elaborate, brilliantly colored and rapidly changing - people used to compare them to slide shows."


This can also occur in states of meditation. I wouldn't assign a "psychic" cause unless you have a good reason to (if you find a verifiable meaning to these faces), because it is usually a very normal experience more often than a psychic one.

I never went to any session of any sort before. Until this started I regarded anything with a New Age vibe to it as a lifestyle. I still do.

However, I do come from a family who has had very interesting spiritual and paranormal experiences for generations on my mother's side, so I'm open to these types of experiences, just not really into that. I find it fascinating.

My father see's faces as well. Try reading this article, it may help.

I see faces when I close my eyes, why?
