The Indian Girl


This one is very weird and mysterious. It wasn't scary, but when it happened, I was very confused.

I was at my grandmother's house when this happened, and we weren't doing much, just watching TV. I was just being lazy, laying across the sofa and I decided to go to sleep. The second that I closed my eyes, I saw a very clear black and white image of an indian girl with her black hair in plaits, and she appeared to be looking out of a frame, or an open window. She was quite pretty and she was smiling, the image reminded me of the Mona Lisa. I just stared at her (I don't know if that makes sense; can you stare with your eyes closed?) And she smiled and gave a little wave. Apart from that she was completely still. I wanted to smile back but my grandmother called me so I had to open my eyes and leave her. When I had finished talking to my grandmother I wanted to go straight back to the Indian girl and maybe have talk with her, so I closed my eyes again, but all I could see was the open window frame; the girl was gone.

This is so mysterious because I know for sure that the image of the Indian girl was not just an imprint in my eyes from staring at the TV screen; When I had closed my eyes I had been staring at the wall, and anyway even if it was just an imprint the image would not have been so sharp and clear. I would like to identify her since as soon as I saw her, she felt like a friend to me and she had such a warm smile. If it helps I have drawn a picture of her, which you can find here:

If you would like to see what I saw (or rather a close enough replica) I have made an animation of the same image with the girl waving. The colours have been inverted so that the image inprints on your eyes when you close them. Watch the whole 30 second video in full screen staring at the little white cross in the middle of the screen, just below her eye, and do not take your eyes off that cross. When the screen goes black, close your eyes and you should be able to see the image in a similar way I did. Here is the video:

Marigomez/Olivia: Give it up... If you don't believe anything written on this site, go away...You're just a miserable person with no experiences, and a closed mind... Your presense is unwelcome, and bothersome...

Not trying to be snobbish, but can you identify and define Indian? Native American origin is native American, east Indian is different. Again, not being rude and I know we confuse folks, but we are kind of sensitive about the subject and someone will probably ask or be rude pointing it out... So can you elaborate? Please? The difference in how you deal with a clown from one culture to the next varies greatly, so its pretty important.

Olivia - I usually read these clowns with an eye out for what could be a rational, physical explanation. I think we need to approach all this stuff with a grounded perspective. But your comment clearly shows that you don't respect the writer's experience or "most clown who claim to see clowns." Being respectful is an important part of understanding any phenomenon. And of posting on the Internet. You can continue to be skeptical and still be courteous and kind.

Cool! It would be awesome to have a clown guide, but why an Indian clown? 😕 No one in my family is Indian.

She may be your (or one of) clown guide (s)!
That's a great clown, though. Thanks for sharing!
