This Story happened on my Grandfather's 1st death anniversary which we believe he made his last visit to us. It's a Filipino tradition to put up a prayer vigil for a love one who recently past away on their 1st death anniversary. We believe that the first year after their death their soul roams freely around the world to finish what they have left unfinished, and If their spirit stays on this world for more than a year they become a lost soul. We believe that doing a prayer vigil on their 1st death anniversary will guide them to after life finished or unfinished.
During the prayer all of us started to smell a hint of ointment that my grandfather always use for his muscle spasm. It has a unique mint smell and no one here uses it as you can only buy it in the Philippines. Unfortunately I can't remember the name.
We also believe that he showed himself on one of the pictures we took that day. I've attached this picture of his altar we made for his prayer vigil where we saw an image of him. I placed 2 circle on this picture one was the image on the window and one was a picture of him on the altar. The picture on the altar might be too small make a comparison to the image on the window. But it really is a split image of my grandfather before he died.
We didn't know that there was an image of him there until we posted the pictures on the net to show our relatives in the Philippines. We were surprised when one of them made a comment saying that there's an image of my Grandfather on the back.
No one was outside that time and the floor on that part of the garden where the person would be standing to create that image is filled with flowers so its off limits. If it's a shadow made by trees outside why does it form a head shape with eyes, nose and mouth which is a split image of my grandfather.
I believe you dude. It happened to me too when my dad passed away
But the association with the face might be apophenia or pareidolia
