Before I begin, there are a few things I'd like you to know. Firstly, I suffer bouts of depression and I also have manic episodes, where I'm very happy and feel on top of the world. What I'm getting at is that I'm very much aware of mental health issues. I take absolutely no medication whatsoever. I just cope. I do not drink heavily and I do not use drugs. I function normally, drive, go to work etc. I was raised Catholic, however I'm very open minded to the possibility of anything, ghosts, spirits, demons, angels etc.
I'm here because I don't know what to do.
2 nights ago, I woke up at 5.00 am, looked to the left of me (where there is a mirror propped up against my wall) and saw a man sitting at the end of my bed, appearing to look at me through the mirror. Logic said he should have been sitting to the right of my bed. Hope this makes sense. (It wasn't as if he was IN the mirror).
My first thought was again logic... 'Is this mirror tilted and is this my reflection I'm seeing distorted...? I moved. The reflection did not move with me.
I looked to the right of my bed. Nothing.
Looked in the mirror again, still there.
Looked to the right, nothing.
Mirror again, nothing. He'd vanished.
The gentleman looked slightly like my grandad, although I'm not 100% sure it was him or his vision I saw. I did not feel scared, only slightly freaked out but strangely calm. I could make out his facial features and I know he was wearing dark rimmed glasses.
I got out of bed and checked the mirror. The mirror was not tilted, therefore, because of my position in the bed, the reflection could not have been mine.
As weird as this sounds, I got back into bed and fell asleep no trouble. I know, its crazy, but honestly I was not scared.
Since this happened, I've noticed I keep seeing things out of the corner of my eye and hearing things, noises that only I can hear. Incidently, I do have an unbelievably sensitive sense of smell.
Do you think my night visitor holds any relevance with regards to my life the way it is? Like, with my depression, it could be my brain I know that... Or is it a negative energy? Could there be a negative energy around me and this man is watching me as a good guide? Is he the negative energy? I know the possibilites are endless and you're not doctors but do you think that the way I am is anything ghost/demon/negative energy/spirit related? Do I go to a priest for a blessing to rid whatevers following me if something is? Or could it actually be my grandad paying me a visit to check up on me?
Your thoughts on this would be very much appreciated. I feel like I'm cracking up. (Which I know is also a possibility...)
