Weird Visions


In the last 5 months I have randomly seen 3 things. They seem real here is the story.

My boyfriend and I were on the way to his cottage and we take quite a few back roads, we were driving along a road that was next to a lake and I saw a man that looked all ragged. He looked homeless. His clothing was a torn and it was the middle of winter. I yelled "stop the car." My boyfriend asked me why and I asked him" didn't you see that man?" He said no so we stopped the car and I walked back to see if the man was ok and he was no longer there.

The second time I saw a little boy playing in a flooded park as I was driving by so I pulled into the parking lot to tell him not to play there it was dangerous and yet again he was not there.

The third time happened today when I was outside playing with my dog. I have a riding lawn mower that has been in my boyfriend's family forever and out of the corner of my eye I saw a man wearing a blue t-shirt and blue jean shorts sitting on it. Then I looked directly at it and there was no body there.

When I was a child I lived in a house with my father and every time that I was sitting on my bed I would see a shadow figure that would walk by. He was tall, wore a trench coat and a top hat, and smoked a pipe. I could smell the pipe tobacco, and I just knew that it was a man. It always scared me.

Whenever I do see this type of things I always see it out of the corner of my eye. Then when I look at it directly it is gone. If I just kept looking at it out of the corner of my eye it would be there for a longer period of time.

I need to know I am I seeing ghosts is it left over energy what are these things. This has happened to me my whole life I can remember seeing shadow figures as a child. Can someone tell me what this is?

What is this called? It does scare me and it is getting more intense now that I am older? How do I control it?

i believe the word for this is glimpseing, that's why you can't keep a focused view. As for the guy with a top hat... This stands out. Me and a couple of friends of mine have seen things similar to this. I have seen something similar in a dream, and then later the same man in real life, this startled me as I'm not used to dreaming things that are real, or dreaming at all (altho I get dejavu almost every day) this guy was old, in a top hat but that didn't stand out, he also had a cane (didnt see a pipe)...i find this interesting... Back to the point I think its called glimpseing and has to do with something along the lines of seeing trough planes of existance... Or something like that

😐 It's good to finally hear of someone else who's experienced the man w/the top hat. My first vision of him was terrifying at the age of 12. I was laying on my top bunk,w/my back to the open door, had this feeling that someone was watching me. I heard someone softly call my name, as I turned over, thinking my daddy had come in to check on me, there HE was, this 6 foot plus, thin man w/a top hat & a trench coat. He reminded me of Abe Lincoln. As I tried to focus on the image he said my name again & slowly raised his "long" arm towards me like he was reaching for my hand or something. I remember letting out one blood curdling scream. He was instantly gone. My parents came rushing in to my room & my daddy checked out my room, the rest of the house & even outside, but there was nothing. Since then, I have seen this image several times throughout my life, he always appears in my doorway or at the end of my bed. He has never reached for me again, just stands there watching for a bit then fades away. I've realized over the years that whenever he shows up now there has always been something major happen in my life. Within a couple weeks there's a death, birth, accident or serious illness in my family. I don't think he means any harm, perhaps just a warning of sorrow to come. The past few years its even gotten to the point that I can sense him there, w/out opening my eyes to be sure.

I'm interested in the fact that you said he wore a top hat... I saw a top hat at my window (2nd story) when I was 4-5 years old, and then at age 18ish (also 2nd story!) I saw a top hat... With a man connected to it outside the window of the room I was in.

This would happen to me a few years back. It has recently started happening again. I think it is amazing and I too have no clue as to why or what this is!

molly0831... For the most part if its left over energy you could look straight at it. If it is the more traditional type of ghost well... They may know that you can see them with a side glance but prefer to stay out of your main field of vision until they are ready to communicate in some fashion with you. Shadow people in my house tend to appear when someone is close to death and basically just pass by.

btw my explanition is this: if you open up moreyo your vision or you get into a otherworldy mode you begin to see what is allready here... So it is just an indicator of your mode... And in my opnion its nothing to be afraid of... Because the "healthier" human get the more they see...
Well my opnion...;)
