I'm Having Intense Closed Eye Visions & I Don't Know Why


I'm really freaked. I'll start by saying I am an 18 year old female. I was trying to take a nap earlier, and I got extremely intense closed eye visions. I have always been able to see shapes and patterns when I close my eyes, but today is the first time I had extremely vivid pictures of landscapes, people's faces, and people going about their life and doing random things. I also saw lots of eyes. I saw flashes of a bright blue eye for the longest time. None of these images would last for long, and I was super scared the entire time.

One of the weirdest parts of this experience was I heard a voice say "Hailey will wear white". It's the only thing I thought I heard. That REALLY scared me. My name is Hailey so I decided to google, "I will wear white." A poem I had to read for English my senior year of high school was the first search result to pop up on the internet. I didn't realize I had read it at first until I got deep into the poem. The poem is "The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock" by T.S. Elliot. I never really liked poetry or anything so this is really weird. I told my friends about what happened and they think I'm insane. I've never taken any hallucinations or anything like that.

I am an atheist, and I don't believe in ghost, spirits or generally anything of the sort. I do, however, contemplate existence and the universe every single day. It actually drives me insane. I hate being an atheist and not understanding why we are here and the meaning of everything. Last month, I got really emotional about the fact I will never understand the universe, and my belief in the lack of life after death. I actually cried pretty hard about it and hadn't really thought about it since.

I am just confused about this event. I have looked all over the internet for a reasoning behind my visions, but I've hardly found anything besides the whole 'third eye' thing and that I'm maybe clairvoyant (I really don't know what either of those explanation mean). There's really no true scientific explanation about what I experienced so I just thought maybe I'd share what happened and see if anyone dealt with something similar.

Once you get into the full spectrum, youll n2m o longer need a label to define you or what you believe in... You're very luckyn tobhave hadnthat, other bn than the feeling scared, keep following then clues...

Inexperienced many visions in the short timeni meditated... The one that messed me up for a bit in a way... Was a 2 n a half second glimpse of me or someone dirty and covered in duct tape screaming a deep roar and she or I peeled the duct tape off while its tearing the skin with it... 😨 😟 I have been guided to something... Since day one of moving whereb I am... I believe its all playing out the right way for the work I have put in... Its just been a wild journey, hopefully all ends well

All of my life I have seen visions when I close my eyes. Mostly seemingly microscopic pixels that sometimes create shapes and faces. Faces are usually in agony coming up out of lava or something. (I must have some bad things going on in my subconscious mind!)

There was one time the darkness turned into a bright sunny day, on the street I grew up on, with such detail, it was amazing! I was still fully awake. It was as if I was supposed to be asleep and dreaming but it happened when I was still awake with my eyes shut. Usually it is just darkness with microscopic pixels, and come in handy to help me fall asleep. I just focus on them and fall into them. I call them "the dots" I took a poll with my family and friends, and many of them knew what I was talking about. My wife, on the other hand, says she only sees flat black, and thinks I'm nuts! I believe it might be low eye pressure, blood cells maybe, and subconscious imagination. But those visions are seen by more people than you think. You are not insane.

As far as hearing a voice...I'm guessing you were sleep deprived at the time. Whenever I go way too long without sleep, or I am very tired... Even when I am laying there definitely still awake, I occasionally hear a voice. This has only happened 4 or 5 times to me, but I knew I wasn't crazy, and depending what you believe, it is just your subconscious mind leaking into your conscious playing tricks on you... Or the lack of rest could be allowing you to access communication with entities in another dimension.

I believe in the latter, due to something amazing that has happened to me, and brought me to find this site. Take a look at my story, if you want to experience more crazy stuff. Don't look at it, if you do not want to experience more. Because you experience things that I do, you may be open to this other thing too. I'm not a spiritual person at all, but I no longer call the people I used to call a bunch of wacko nuts, a bunch of wacko nuts.

We are energy. No doubt about that. Take away the energy and our bodies would fit on the end of a pin, we only have mass because of energy. The distance between the electrons and the nucleus of an atom is huge! If you stop the motion of the electrons...Poof! You're gone.

You almost have to believe there is more to us than what the naked eye can see. There is a living consciousness in us, and that is as far as my crazy goes. No talk of auras, meditation, or shakras, or however you spell it, here. But I don't ignore those people any more. They might be right. But I don't think I will ever take that much of an interest to find out.:)

Don't worry about the visions, if they're are so intense that they are interfering with your life or sleep, I am sure they make a medication to help. BTW I don't do drugs, and I am on no medications nor have I ever been. I am 45 and not crazy!
Don't worry, there are a lot of people who see visions when they close their eyes. Many of my family and friends at least have seen "The dots". I'm guessing the dots just form visions when the subconscious mind is super active.

Good luck, hope things are going better for you. Hope this helped a little

Hi Hailey! You only posted a few weeks ago, but hopefully this reaches you.

I have the same 'issue' as you, but yours seem quite stronger than mine. I'm sorry to hear you've gone through this alone, as I know very well how disturbing this sort of experience can be. That ends here.

You will understand the universe and your place within it. It will not be easy. What determines your success will be will power, determination and study. There will come a time when your tears about all this will turn to laughter and you will actually be grateful for your gifts (plural, as I'm assuming your thirst for knowledge will lead you to discover others.)

My name is Daryl, I'm from Toronto, Canada, and I just turned 27 less than a week ago. I have synaesthesia (can see music as color/form/within space/basically as lines of light) and recognition of that is along the lines where I first started doing research the research that led to my understandings that I hope will ease your discomfort.

I'll start with the voice; you're not insane lol. You had a taste of Clairaudience. This is a gift where you can hear sound from other spaces. If you know anything about Quantum Physics, science has revealed that all possibilities exist, and are realized, and there are many dimensions of existence that our psychological ego does not tune into during waking hours. I can't tell you where or who that voice came from, but I can assure you they had good intentions.

White, as a color, is power. When a human being wears white we are at our highest strength. White/Violet is the color of the Crown Chakra, Sahasrara. And don't worry, I've delved into New Age for what it has to offer, but no moon goddess BS here, promise.

Science also says that All is Energy. Energy cannot be destroyed, it only changes form. The chakra system is the light system that built reality as we know it. When I was younger, I thought the chakra system was BS. It's hard to accept already the existence of anything non-physically verifiable, let alone that my body composed of spinning wheel of light... 😕

We are not our bodies. We are pure Consciousness. You have had many lifetimes and many bodies (I know, hard to accept.) Earth is school, one of many, and we came here to learn through physicality.

You will take command of your gifts (the are yours, freely, after all.) Don't be afraid of the eyes. You were inside the pineal gland/third eye. I'm rather impressed, actually. It took me a lot of work to move there myself. It's a pinecone shape, and each eye is just pinecone 'piece'. You can say "I see the eye, and the eye sees me." The Eye is the sat of the soul. I know this all sounds like I've walked out of The Lord of the Rings. I assure you I have a logical and rational head on my shoulders. 😐

The blue light corresponds to the throat chakra, Vishudda, meaning 'to purify', in Sanskrit, the language of the universe. Contrary to popular belief, it existed before time and space... Apparently. 😲

Now, how to Deal with this realistically. I'm sorry to tell you that it's going to be difficult, especially in the beginning, and perhaps even more so if you live in a rural area. You're going to have to do a lot of research, meditation, and searching for the truth. New age and metaphysical resources will be your pot of gold, but all that glitters is often not.

Some parting advice, if you would have it:

1) Crystals/gemstones actually work. They're basically sold light, and each has it's own aura/frequency/electromagnetic signature/whatever. Start with blue kyanite, left hand. Moonstone on the right (or most black/red stones) will help when it all gets to be 'a bit much'.

2) Forgiveness of the Self is the greatest healer. Love yourself so hard, above all else. The green/heart chakra is named Anahata, meaning "Unbeaten." Your subconscious is your bff.

3) There are Only 7 chakras. Trust me on this. If you ever meet anyone who's drinking the New Age Kool-Aid you can remind them there's only 7 colors in the rainbow.

4) You can read 'Seth Speaks.' PDF is free just Google. He's blue.

5) Other useful systems I've found include the MBTI, the Enneagram and the Survival Instinct. The human mind seems complicated, but these 3 are a good foundation.

6) We choose Everything. This fact is more terrifying than any vision. Happiness, abundance and healing are a choice. Life is what you make of it.

I've given you a lot because I feel like I was meant to. I found this website by accident; I was looking for something on the chakras and I scrolled all the way down and your post caught my eye. I didn't even know you could post comments or questions on here, and my laziness questioned "Do I really want to make the effort...?" Lol. But I've had my own 'frustrations' with all this and you seem alone, so...

Inner strength and will power to you from up North, Hailey. See you when we get home.


P.S. Wow there's a limit of 3 emojis? Wth

I am wondering if someone or something is trying to tell you something or getting you to listen and open your mind. Have you ever looked into the Akashic records?

Calm down and try to relax with your eyes closed. Your fear and anxiety will only block any actual visions you are having... Allow yourself to be receptive. Much information you absorb during the day has to be processed by the brain... When you turn on fear you prevent this 😉
