Man In The Mirror


I have lived in the same house in Auckland all my life.

One day I was in my room and saw something out of the corner of my eye I looked but saw nothing. About 5 minutes later the same thing happened but this time I saw a ghostly face behind me in the mirror, I quickly looked behind me but saw nothing I looked in the mirror again and the face was still there. I haven't gone back in the room since.

The face looked very old and grey I don't know of any past residents in the house because my father built the house from the ground up. I don't understand it.

can anyone give me info on this. I haven't heard of any ghost stories like this but if anyone can tell me about activity like mine please tell me or give me a link.

I am very interested about this but am quite scared please help me.

Seeing things out of the corner of my eye has happened a lot in that room but nothing like this until now.

I am new to the site so this is my first story.

I must say I'm so glad to finally find people who have experienced this with me, although I don't wish it upon anyone. After looking for information on this for sometime now, I'm getting a little worried as this old man seems to be appearing in mirrors more often than I thought.
What I did to get rid of him was I called upon my friend who is a priest and does exorcisms and such, he did a cleansing/blessing on me, and have felt much better.

Welcome to the site.

All the sugestions here are valid, history of the land (something to check into more), histroy of the house (which you obviously know) and the histroy of the mirror or any other objects/furniture in the room that may be antique. (been working all night please excuse any spelling mistakes).

I do not believe 'you' are haunted, best bet is soemthing in the room that is 'new' to the house...

It could have somthing to do with the land that your house is built on. That is one possibility.

There's a link to my story 😊 I originally tried posting it as "the man in the mirror" but they told me I couldn't because someone else had used it lol guess it was you
The one in my mirror looks the same and no one believes me either 😐... Good luck btw

Chicken Farm? Maybe it's has something to do with that land. You may be seen a man in mirror he had been that on chicken farm or from a portal from the mirror.

consider that maybe the mirror is haunted, not the room.

Or (I hate to say) you are haunted and not the home.

The person could be someone who used to own the land. Or it could be someone who is just passing through. Spirits can go where they please, so maybe this spirit has nothing to do with the land or the house.

the only info I have about the land is that it used to be a chicken farm?

check the land just becuase its a new house doesn't mean its new land.
