Strange Visions While Awake


I have been having strange visions while awake, mostly at night before I go to sleep, but some in the middle of the day. These visions are images of people, but not regular normal everyday people, these are strange. The first one happened while I was lying in bed trying to get to sleep. I saw an old woman, crone-like with long stringy white hair leaning over me. I didn't "see" it with my eyes, because my eyes were closed, but it was as vivid as if she were standing right in front of me. I opened my eyes, and no one was there.

The next night I saw a long hallway stretching out in front of me, slanting upward. The hallway was completely black with no door or windows at all. At the end of the hallway a door opened and there was a young man dressed in black and white with hair that stuck out all over who looked like he had just happened to be walking by the end of the hallway when the door opened. He looked at me for a moment and then started down the hallway towards me. I did not get a good feeling from him. I opened my eyes and was back in bed.

Since then I have seen a little girl dressed in rags and a man who had purple skin with strange characters carved into his face. His eyes were very green, his nose looked like it had been partially cut off. When I saw him it was in extreme close-up, almost as if we were looking eye to eye with only an inch or so separating us. All of these images have happened while I was getting ready to fall asleep.

But I am now also seeing some of these images during the day while doing normal everyday things. I was sitting at my desk working last week when I heard a song on my radio that was very relaxing. I turned around on my chair and started to sway to the music with my eyes closed for a moment. And in that instant, I saw a woman who was mirroring my dance. She was very pale and was covered with white feathers. I am not sure if she was wearing clothing made from feathers or if she was actually growing them from her skin. When she looked up at me I got a little freaked out and snapped myself back to reality.

I also have seen pretty frequently for the past few years large fantastic plants growing all over my bedroom walls when I wake up - it only lasts for a second or two before they disappear. Sometimes they are huge leaves, sometimes flowers, and sometimes vines. Sometimes it changes from plants to other objects - numbers and symbols floating along the wall, or even at one point statues of the Virgin Mary and lit candles lined up all over the walls and ceiling. When these started I just thought I was dreaming, but now that I am having these visions of people who seem to interact with me, I am beginning to wonder.

I don't know exactly what I am seeing. I do see spirits while I am awake and with my eyes open, but this is entirely different. These spirits I see when I am awake are solid and I know they are definitely a part of the environment around me. The spirits or ghosts that I see almost daily often ignore me, going about their own business and only rarely take an interest in me personally. All of the people/creatures in these images/visions I am having seem VERY interested in me. These images/visions seem to be giving me a glimpse into somewhere I am not supposed to be, or maybe they are trying to watch me. In any case, it is a bit disconcerting.

Does anyone know what is happening to me? Are these some sort of waking dreams, or am I starting to hallucinate? Who are these people, and should I be concerned? I try very hard to keep anything with a negative energy out of my house because I have a small daughter, but these things seem to be very forceful. Any help would be appreciated.

I am 53 and have never had any type of visions until recently. The first one was a couple of months ago. It was a pyramid with water flowing under it. The next one came a bout two weeks later. It was just a bunch of squiggly lines moving all over the place. The to my left, a very large eye opened out of nowhere. It looked around at the lines and then at me. It then closed as suddenly as it opened. Since then I have had several of the same one. It is a bunch of weird writing like hieroglyphics that are wiggling and changing. All of the visions are the same in the sense that they all look like they have been drawn crudely like by a child. And they all start the same. They all have happened in the middle of the night when I have woken up. It starts with a small white dot in the middle of my vision field. Then the white dot starts to grow until it covers my whole field of vision. Then the visions start. They are very clear. Except that it almost seems like I am watching an old TV screen, like how it kind of flickers sometimes.

you are psychic, for you the veil between worlds is becoming thinner and thinner. You can see spirits with your third eye - I can too. This also happens to me before I go to sleep, but sometimes when I am meditating too. These spirits are not demons, but they may be mischevious or be lower vibrational - not good spirits. They can also be good, such as the plants in your room and possibly the feathered woman. It depends on how they make you feel. Follow your intuition. Don't worry about your daughter, if one of these spirits make you feel uneasy you can protect yourself and make them go away using various visualizations. You are much stronger than them.

cyopathic. I totally disagree with you. I don't understand why you'd hasten to such an ugly conclusion about the color green symbolism. But I digress.

Aine... You have the gift of vision. Yay. Don't be frightened by what you experience. It seems you have a strong astral presence, so try beset to stay calm and block out those whou would pollute your experiences with negativity. I have many waking astral experiences (visions) Not all of them are pleasant, but MOST of them are beatiful, or at least very helpfull to others. Take Care. X

Strange about green eyes, my eyes are green - I am the only one in my family with green eyes.

As for where I live, I am not out all that much as I am a new mom, and also work from home... And we don't live in a very large city at all, in fact the place is almost in the country to the point we have deer, wild turkeys, and other wildlife in our backyard on a daily basis.

Any ideas on how to identify where I could have had the thing see me and take interest?

Green eyes have been thought to be with dangrous demons that probbly explains that but you might want to describe where you live these people might have seen you on the sub way or waiting in line doing a good deed and decided to take intrest for you.
