My earliest childhood memory is me seeing spirits. I've always seen spirits everyday from as early as I can remember. However it was rare for me to see the same spirit again.
From the age of three I saw an old lady spirit everyday for 13 years, who is called Emilie. I saw Emilie as my best friend, someone I would speak to for hours on end.
I remember as I got older I started seeing less spirits due to the fact I was getting more scared and often asked them to leave me alone, which they did. Shortly after this I saw Emilie for the last time and after seeing her everyday for 13 years, she vanished, (I was 16 when she disappeared.)
The day after Emilie left reality hit me that she wasn't going to come back so I apologised for getting scared and begged for her to come back so I could say goodbye. The very next morning I woke up, drew the curtains and a black crow, the biggest one I've ever seen, was sitting on the window sill looking at me. I sat on the bed, eyes wide and stared at this crow, which would sit there looking at me for roughly 5 minutes before flying away. I saw this crow every morning without fail and this happened for just over 7 months. However if my mum or dad were to come anywhere near my room, when I was sitting there, the crow would fly off immediately.
Even more strange, if I was not in my bed in the morning (I often slept round my Nans house), my mum or dad would open the curtains, the crow would look at my empty bed and knock on the window consistently for about 10 minutes. The knocking on the window occurred about 3 times a month and freaked everyone out. (My brother even thought we were being burgled and went upstairs with a kitchen knife and as soon as he got to the top of the stairs the crow flew away).
As I became more comfortable with the crow sitting there every morning, one day I started talking to it. Suddenly Emilie's face had morphed into the crow and after not seeing her for nearly 8 months tears rolled down my face. Her face smiled at me and I heard a whisper in my ear saying 'goodbye,' as if she was right behind me.
After about 10 seconds, the crows face went back to 'normal' (if that's the right thing to say) and flew off for the last time and I have not seen it since.
Is there such thing as reincarnation? I can't honestly think of other explanations, I doubt I could imagine her face so clearly like that. Please let me know what you think, I need opinions from people who believe and have had similar experiences, thank you for reading!
