Apparition Of A Living Person
Posted 06 July 2009 - 11:43 AM
Friday morning, I woke up around 5:30am. I always sleep with the TV on, and woke up to the news...I don't remember exactly what was being discussed, but as I was looking over at the TV set, I saw my mother walk from my doorway, to my closet doorway (a straight line) and then dissappear. The first thought was " what's she doing here?she's gonna fall!" b/c my room is a total mess. My mother lives about 20+miles from me...she's 81 and has dementia with a lot of other medical problems, and the myriad of my free time is spent taking care of her. (My daughter posts here a lot and has told me about posting for "good vibes" for me which I greatly appreciate!) I sat up, stunned...and waited for the call to tell me she had pased away in her sleep. The call never came. I called to check on her and she was fine, the caretaker said. I went out that evening, and she was wearing the nightgown she had on when she "walked into my room". I asked the caretaker who told me, yes, that's what she went to bed in last night and didn't want to change clothes today. Why and how would I see an apparition of a living person? I KNOW I wasn't dreaming, I was fully awake, looked at my cellphone for the time and it was 5:39 am when it happened.
Has this happened to anyone else?
Thanks for your input!!

that's what i thought of right away. i'm sure she's visited your home before; she may have been dreaming of being there.
now this is just my opinion...but if she's suffering from dementia, it would seem logical that the conscious part of our brains...the part that keep us in them, so to speak...might not be keeping the guard up quite as well as it did when she was younger and healthier. maybe she's just closer to a thinner part of the veil and she was able to astral project to your home?

My husband worked night shift and I knew he wasn’t home so I figured I hallucinated and thought it was pretty cool/interesting because this was the first and only time I hallucinated when I was having sleep paralyses. I did snap myself out of the paralyses and check the house just to make sure. It seemed very real at the time.
So maybe your experience is somewhat similar to what I experienced since you saw your mother just as you woke up.

I've accidentally scared the crud out of people having done it unintentionally. (I went to sleep or took a nap when I was worrying about someone... and that's the person who sees me, miles and miles away. I usually don't realize what I've done till I'm woken by the panicked phone call, "are you OK? I heard your voice/saw you just now."

I have had experiences with others coming to me, albeit not physically, I've been called several times both while I'm absolutely awake (like, in the process of lying down after finishing up some work or getting a drink of water in the middle night) and been awakened out of a sound sleep.
I've also done it to others. On numerous occasions I've had the exact same dream from a different perspective than another person or another several people. People have also heard me call them when I've wanted them... both when I've done it consciously and when I've simply wanted them badly. The most verifiable incidence is when my father passed away. There were several family members that gathered in astral form to be with him in his last moments, including a man I didn't recognize but saw a few days later at the memorial service. We can all describe exactly who was there and exactly what happened when he passed. Since I was going to go up to see him later that day, I also saw my stepmother dialing the phone and hurried back to answer it before it woke my husband up. I had my hand on the phone and was fully awake when it rang -- at 4:15 -- and answered my husband's question of "who's that" before I spoke to the person on the other end with "It's [stepmother's name], Dad just died."
I wouldn't worry about it being a doppelganger or any other sort of warning. Your mother wanted you for something and came over to see you and probably forgot what she wanted. I wouldn't be surprised if this starts happening now.

Since that morning, I haven't seen her here anymore, but we did have a scare with her a few nights ago and took her to the hospital, with heart palpitations and chest pain. Good ol' dementia kicked right in...making her very uncooperative to say the least. (unfamiliar surroundings make her worse) so, because of her "disposition", her dr suggested we just take her home and hope for the best, which is what we are doing.
Thanks again, everyone!!!

That makes perfect sense, Amethyst! ........you have once again given us something pretty powerful to ponder.

I agree with Jim! That's a good way of looking at it! Thanks Amethyst!
