I know this needs a little back story so here it is, I have three friends that have died in tragedies, car accidents to be exact, 3 years apart. I think I saw them one night at around 1:15ish in the morning, it was the summer of last year and I was trying to fall asleep. For some reason I couldn't fall asleep, I opened my eyes and saw 3 blueish white orbs hovering in my room close to my bed, they flashed bright and I closed my eyes to see 3 figures, they looked like my friends. I was shocked, I didn't know if it was them and I started to cry because I missed them so much. When one of them touched my shoulder I jumped at the cold touch, it wasn't a solid touch just a sudden cold chill. I was scared but a few minutes later they just disappeared.
I've been seeing these three a lot and I'm scared it may be demons trying to trick me. Is there any way I can tell it's my friends? I somewhat hope it is cause I want to know they're watching over me but I'm also kind of hoping it isn't because then they would be resting in peace, and not having to watch over me. I don't know how to tell so it's kind of hard to understand if they are or aren't my friends, I mean I see spirits a lot but I usually can tell for sure if it's a demon, with these three it's fuzzy. I can feel a kind of connection to them but I just don't know if it's them, they act like them but I seriously am lost.
I wish I know how to better explain how weird this is for me to not be able to tell. I'm not used to being unsure of spirits.
