I made this account when I was 15 because I needed explanations on what's going on. I have learned to move on and just ignore some things that are happening or to accept some.
I don't remember exactly when I have stopped having weird dreams, seeing things, and feeling like someone is with me. It must be around late high school or early college. I still can feel how everybody else feels and am capable now of distinguishing my own emotions from others and minimizing other people's influence especially when it is negative. I have gotten back in being fully religious even when I was still having experiences (but not extreme).
Currently, I am 22 years old. I thought the things mentioned above just go away with age. However, for some reason I am seeing things again. It is uncontrolled and random. It happens when I am not expecting it. I have dismissed experiences such as reflection of light somewhere, something scientific that I just missed. Or my imagination.
Tonight I am drawing the line. I saw a person at the same area where I saw a person the other night. I actually forgot that I saw something similar so recently because like I said, I dismiss it. I only recalled now that I am typing. I moved to a house on a cul-de-sac. Both times the person appeared outside in front of my neighbor's house.
The other night, it was next to their mailbox and was a shadow figure. Tonight it was farther out the street and was clearer. I saw this figure with color. The skin color was peach. Not a pale person more on the warm side but not too tan. It was not defined as I would be sure there was a person 100% in that case and run. I convinced myself nobody was there and went home.
In reality I am scared. This is the clearest thing I have ever seen. I have seen full figure shadows move before shaped like a person. I have never seen a colored one.
In addition, (might be completely unrelated) there were sounds of an animal in pain for 2 minutes straight. Squirming and high pitched. It has stopped not but my cat is still looking outside from the window. This happened as I was typing this when I got in my room. I even paused in writing this to ask my tenant if there are foxes around (I saw one before and she did too).
Overall, I just do not know why I was completely peaceful for awhile and then it comes back. Has this happened to you or someone else?
