I recently had an experience that I have a hard time understanding. I had been seeing this figure (the typical black, not a shadow but not solid either, figure) for a few months and thought nothing of it. I could often explain it away but after it had happened too many times to explain away, I would just think 'oh there it is again'. Nothing to worry about, it didn't leave me with any feelings. It had a tendency to hide around corners. It would be walking around a corner in front of me or peeking out from behind a corner of the hallway. I would see it at school, at home, the grocery isle, everywhere. It happened maybe once a week.
I hadn't thought anything of it until a recent experience which was unlike anything I have experienced before. Let me preface this by saying I have only one person in my life who I knew very well who has passed, my aunt. I look very similar to her and we had a lot in common. People had a hard time telling us apart in photographs. I have wanted to meet her again ever since I started seeing spirits. What is the point of putting up with them if I can't see the one person I actually care about? It has been eight years since she died of cancer; I was in the other room when she passed.
I was in the bathroom brushing my hair when I looked into the mirror and saw her. Well, not her exactly, it was me I saw. I couldn't tell if I was looking at myself or my aunt. I stared into the mirror, waiting for my mind to make itself up, but I couldn't decide. I blinked, I looked away, but she was still me when I turned my eyes once again to the mirror. I stood there for a long time, but I didn't know what to do and I was starting to get freaked out, so I left.
I think the shadow and my aunt are connected, but I haven't seen either since the mirror day. Did I miss my chance to contact her? I've never tried to contact someone before, should I try?
