My visions started around about, October/November 2011. My partner at the time, had a bad dream and was shouting in their sleep. I awoke suddenly because of this. In a very dark room, at about 4am, I saw above my bed a glowing golden circle of light, that was moving in an anti-clockwise direction, and moving from right to left. In side this circle were images of what looked like, an RAF (Royal Air Force) Officer, it was so clear at the time. This image kept on moving from right to left for around thirty seconds, the same amount of time as all other visions.
My partner didn't see the same as me, but saw a light in the corner of the room.
Since then I have seen nightly, partial or full images of many different people and even objects. Sometimes there are a whole group of "people/spirits" in the room, all gazing in my direction, more like dark figures than clear images like the first time, and a very strong energy which comes along with them. This I don't get very often, mostly there is just one image. Mostly, a few feet away, but, other times only ten inches or so. Once I waved at one such image and it then instantly waved back, that was very interesting. Of all the visions over the last 14/15 months, I have never been fearful, just intrigued. Occasionally, there are faces, which aren't that pleasant, so I just ask them to leave or ask to see only higher evolved/energy beings. In my Spiritualist class, we are told to protect ourselves by imagining a beautiful blue light, going through the top of our head, through our body, hands and toes, into the earth and cascade back up and out of our head and around our Auric field.
Here are a few other examples which impressed me, at the time:-
Another was an Edwardian male figure, in a Top Hat.
A beautiful young blond lady, that, could be the spirit of my departed Great Niece.
There are many visions that are so tall I can't see their faces, but what I see are many military style uniforms with many medals. Sometimes there are smaller faces, within the "body" of the vision. I have seen my fathers face this way.
A nun, has appeared a few times. A group of men in extreme winter clothes, as if going to the Antarctic. I saw a small Sikh boy (with a turban) once. Then later on he appeared in one of my paintings, this also happened with the man in a Top Hat. As if there is a connection between the two. My paintings reveal many faces & animals.
Other none humanoid visions include, seeing a kitchen with a sink in it, a Globe with a map of Australia, in red, also one of the UK. (I was born in the UK but live now in Australia)
The most intriguing vision I saw was in March 2012. It was of a 16/17 year old, male in one small circle of light. There was also another circle of light with clouds moving across it. I then saw him go towards the light with the clouds, as if he was going towards Heaven! That one quite moved me.
I had one two nights a go, that was so close, only 4 or 5 inches away. I could see their face, and it looked male, who was handsome. The eye was very large, so the whole body was very large, when I saw it first I was taken aback. Then it backed away, and was then a large dark image, with a certain energy in the room. I have my theories.
Why do I get them? I will await your thoughts if you are interested in my experiences.
