This morning I was walking upstairs and when I got to the top of the stairs I looked straight ahead and saw what I thought was my 15-year-old daughter walking into the bathroom. I almost said, "What are you doing up so early?" and when I approached the bathroom and peered in there was nobody there. Confused I looked into my daughter's bedroom and there she was in bed!
It was in that moment that I knew I just witnessed my first ever full apparition spirit! It was as real-looking, as solid as any family member walking in our home. Unfortunately I don't recall any facial features or anything other than the white t-shirt he/she was wearing. There's a mirror on the left side of the bathroom once you walk in and what was interesting was the way it walked in the bathroom, it didn't turn and walk right through the door perpendicular from the hallway but angled itself right through the door in such a way it was walking right into the mirror. Hard to describe. It was astonishing! I didn't hallucinate it, I didn't mistake it for anything other than what I saw which was a person/entity wearing a white t-shirt going into the bathroom.
I've seen a lot of shadows and light anomalies in my life that could be spirits, but never have I seen a PHYSICAL apparition before. The solidity of it was what has me most shocked. It wasn't wispy, translucent, it appeared completely SOLID. Who could it be? A doppleganger of my daughter? But she was awake when this occurred. The only other person in the house was my wife and she was in the bedroom and wearing a dark shirt and I would have seen if she walked into the bedroom before I got there and she did not.
I'm both excited and creeped out at the same time!
As for alcohol, I have had my share of it throughout the years and I can tell you none of my paranormal or spiritual experiences has ever taken place under the influence. In fact, if anything, I think it closes the door and numbs me from the more subtle/finer energy realms. However, I can completely see how a spirit can attempt to take influence over someone who is heavily intoxicated as our willpower is down and easier for that to take effect. Like my take on drugs, I feel the same about spirit influence over intoxicated or high individuals. Sometimes hidden aspects of their personalities are exposed under the influence, and sometimes I do believe a form of possession is at play if the situation presents itself.
I used to live with a step father who I've literally seen his eyes change into a very dark, low-level entity when drunk or sometimes just losing his cool on one of his violent rampages. When you witness it, it's unmistakable. All of my family members witnessed it as well.
To simplify, I think under the right setting, spiritual centeredness, preparation, protection plan and research, one can use certain drugs to access spiritual planes and dimensions and contact spiritual beings and loved ones. Yet another tool to reach higher levels of consciousness. Equally, I believe under completely different circumstances, one can find themselves under the influence of a dark, low level entity or even demonic force if their vibratory level and energy is already polluted and darkened while intoxicated or high. Yet more angles to ponder!
