Seeing Things At The Corner Of My Eyes?


This all started after I experienced the most terrifying thing I've ever experienced when I was a kid. I was so young back then. It still haunts me until this day, though. And I think it's time that I find answers. I'm tired of not knowing what I'm experiencing. It's confusing, and I dislike it. After seven years, I'm finally going to try to find out if what I'm seeing is really just my imagination, or something else.

This all started when I was at seven years of age. I had woken up, and I saw a girl. At first, I thought she was real, but the more I thought about why she was here, the more I realized how transparent she is. She had long, wavy auburn hair that stopped at her elbows. She was extremely pale, and I could see the freckles on her face. Her eyes were dark brown and they looked like they could see your soul. She had a white night gown on, and had scratches on her arms, face, and I think legs. She had no socks or shoes on. She was barefoot. She wasn't staring at me. More like she was staring at the light streaming from the window.

I was scared. I didn't understand what was going on, and I was frozen in place. I wanted to scream, but I couldn't. I was terrified. Then realization came and I decided that I needed to get out FAST. I didn't want to stay, but I didn't want to move either. The thoughts like, "You're putting yourself at risk here. You're not moving! What if she hurts you?" made me get out of that horrid place. At the same time, I didn't want to because I was scared she was going to move and grab me. I got up slowly, still in shock of what I'm seeing in front of me. She didn't move. She looked like she was stuck; frozen in that spot. After I got past her, I didn't look back. I ran downstairs and didn't talk about it to anyone.

I remember seeing shadows at night when I was awake, too. I'm not sure if this really is important. I had a cat named Fluffy at the time, and I saw him get on top of things he couldn't possibly reach. Such as the television. I cried out, saying, "Mommy. Why is Fluffy here!?". My cat, Fluffy wasn't allowed in our room and how could he even go on those? My mom turned on the light, and the dark figure shaped like my cat is wrong. She asked me what was wrong, and I knew I wasn't just dreaming. I'm very confused about this. Even to this day.

I grew up evenutally and started to ignore these shadows. I can't see them now, but a year ago, I had the feeling of being watched. It freaked me so much, I started to cry. This started to happen when I had a dream of her; the girl, in front of our new house we are now living in. It was a photo of her in front of house. She was just standing there. It was a picture. A very old one. One of those brown, wrenkly photos. The more I looked at it, the more the photo started to get bigger until it looked like I was IN that memory. I don't remember what happened after, really. I think I woke up.

Also, that year, I had another experience. I was in the bathroom, combing my hair when I closed my eyes for a second because I was so tired. Suddenly, I saw a tall guy at the corner of my hallway, smirking evilly as if he was doing something he wasn't supposed to be doing. He had a really big, pointy nose and his hair was slicked back with gel. He had really long, pointy nails and the lights were flickering on and off. I was horrified. I ran to my room and cried all night.

Now, I'm seeing shadows. Sometimes, I turn around and I see something IN FRONT of me, but it quickly disappears. At the corner of my eyes, it's sometimes blobs of black. They're the same of an animal or human, and it really freaks me out. It's mostly in the living room where this occurs. It sometimes happens in my room. Oh, and also, my sister had seen a black figure when she was trying to sleep at night. The first night she experienced this was at night. She saw a shadow pass by her curtains outside or something like that. The second time, she was putting her baby, Angel to sleep. She turned around, and the black figure was in front of her. And recently, my mother and father heard a noise from outside. It was like a moan of pain. Something like that. My dad got scared, and I know it's serious when he's scared. I've never seen him terrified, so I know that he wasn't kidding. My mom was scared too.

I don't know if what I'm experiencing is reality or just my imagination? Please do tell me what you think. (: Thanks.

Newbiepsychic makes good points about fear. It always seems hard to figure out how to "make" ourselves not be afraid.

But what occurred to me the other day is that the same Light/Energy/Source that allows you to see and hear these things--is part of you and protects you.

Sometimes I just practice expanding my energy out. I have before felt that there were entities in my private space who shouldn't be there (the words "Uh oh!" were a dead giveaway!) and I felt I blasted them out of my private space with energy. And when someone did my auric reading she said there were white crystalline particles in the aura around. She said she felt it might be a shield of some type. I think she might be right. [I have come to see "sparkles" of crystalline energy as creativity. They are often around pregnant women--and creativity is definitely a part of that process.]

Anyway, long post for short message: Feel your own connection to Source and know that it can protect you from anything. You can only be hurt by your own fears, even in physical. They are tough to totally get a handle on, but it can be the goal.

Hi Enchanted,
I agree with IslVoter (Lora), you will not be able to totally stop seeing these things, you are going to have to learn how to deal with it. The things she suggested re grounding yourself are good and you should look into them and begin practicing.

I just wanted to add, as terrifying as all of this is, please try to control your fear (as hard as I know that is). The more fear you feel, the more you will likely see that is fearful. You will need to build your self confidence in this and try to accept that this is a part of you (it's a part of everyone, everyone has psychic abilities whether they want them or not). Just like anything else, you will need to learn to build this muscle and you will likely be able to turn it on and off... But right now your fear is gripping you and it's controlling you. Think light, see white light around yourself, refuse to see dark or fear. Say that you are in control and this is your space and believe it.
Let us know how you are doing and hang in there ❤

I am not schizophrenic... I don't hear things. I see them. And I went to the doctors to make sure. I'm not schizophrenic. I'm absolutely positive about that. I don't get these things daily, either. And to be honest, I'm quite afraid right now because I'm writing (I like to write stories and want to become an author one day), and I keep seeing things at the corner of my eye. And for some reason, I've been getting visions, too? I don't know. It's when I'm falling asleep. It's not a dream because I'm awake when it happens. I close my eyes because I'm tired, and then a few minutes later, I start seeing things... Like when you see a movie. I had one where I talked to my best friend and it came true a few weeks later. Thanks for the commenting, though. I appreciate it. 😁 ❤

You're schizophrenic. So am I. Schizophrenia means that you see and hear things that aren't real. The hallucinations can be tactile (you can feel them), auditory (you can hear them), or visual (you can see them). Sometimes people can taste and smell them too, but that's pretty rare. I, personally, see and hear things. I can't feel them. If you want my advice, see a psychiatrist or go to a psych ward. UCLA's pretty good. They'll put you on Lithium or Thorazine or something like that and it will help with the symptoms.

Thank you guys for the answers. I'm sorry for my writing. I was tired when I wrote this, and I couldn't fully concentrate on this. I had a lot of things on my mind. I meant, " My mom turned on the light, and the dark figure shaped like my cat was gone." That's just one of my errors. (: Thanks for taking your time to read this and giving me answers.

I for one do believe you are seeing what you're seeing. But I also think the fear you experience is preventing you from (a) seeing fully, (b) understanding truly what the entity wants and (c) developing more, if that's what you desire.

You need to empower yourself. Protecting yourself in a bubble of light--white light or other--can be very helpful. Learn to use grounding, centering and meditation techniques. There are many ways to do both. Meditation doesn't have to be this navel-gazing kind of thing. It can be done in any way that works for you to calm and center yourself.

Ask more questions if you need ideas. You won't be able to totally hide from these gifts, so you might as well embrace them and try to find the way you can use them the best. Everyone has their own path.

I still to this day see things at the corner of my eyes. It use to scare me but now I just ask them, who and what do they want. In May 2012 for a week or so around 4 o-clock in the evening at the corner of my eye I would see something scurry across the floor. With each visit I would talk to it, "hello, can I help you," or what ever came to mind to stay longer, and look at it head on. Around the 5th day in the kitchen fixing dinner, 4 o-clock, corner of my eye, it appeared. I said running towards it "I see you" giving me the impression that it was trying to hide, now more solid I noticed gray and white and it appeared to be dragging something. I studied how it made me feel each time I saw it, I mentioned to my brother about what I have been seeing that it made me feel like something was in need of help that maybe it looked like a cat or a dog hurt and it was in fear trying to hide. Sunday afternoon my brother and I went for a ride to eagle lake. He parked at the boat ramp got out went to the garbage bin, came back to the truck, looked at me and said I found your grey and white ghost. What I said really. He said go to the garbage bin and look in when I did I was in shock there at the bottom was a momma and baby possum, the mother had died and the baby was hiding underneath her rapped around its leg was her insides causing him to drag her. We freed the baby and buried its mother.
