Seeing Faces at Night? No Need to Fear!

seeing facesWhat Does Seeing Faces at Night Mean?

Do you ever close your eyes to meditate or fall asleep, and you start seeing faces flashing across your minds eye?

Seeing faces at night like this is something that used to happen to me when I was a kid, and then it started up again in college, and to be honest it really freaked me out! Before going to sleep I would see faces flashing before me, one after another like a slideshow of ghosts mysteriously appearing before me in the dark. I thought they were the faces of actual ghosts, which at the time scared me, but as I've continued to open my third eye, and learned to tune into the realms of spirit, I now understand these faces to be something else entirely.

What Is The Meaning of Seeing Faces?

Sponsored Links

There's actually a scientific term for the phenomenon of seeing faces, whether they are in clouds, trees, texture on a wall, the shower curtain, or even a piece of toast. 🙂 It's called pareidolia, and is the result of the brain processing visual information like random lines, light, color, and texture. The brain is constantly seeking to understand reality, and so it works to assign meaning to what you see. In the case of pareidolia, indistinguishable patterns shapes, and textures are mentally matched up with concepts we can easily understand, like faces.

So with this in mind, lets look a bit deeper into seeing faces when you close your eyes to meditate or sleep.

Third Eye Opening

As you develop spiritually a natural part of this development is the opening of your clairvoyant sight through your third eye. When you're relaxed, like right before bed, or during a meditation, it's easier for you to receive clairvoyant information, and to become aware of it.

Usually, your first clairvoyant visions will be colors, flashes of light, shapes, and geometric forms… This can all be pretty abstract, and so your brain may try to associate these random stimulus like light flashes, energetic signatures, and vague visual imagry into something tangible and meaningful, like a face. 🙂

The opening of your third eye may happen completely out of the blue, or it may come about as a result of spiritual and intuitive development, including deliberate attempts to open to clairvoyant sight. For me, my third eye started opening completely out of the blue, as I mentioned above it really freaked me out, but after some time I finally put into the effort to develop my clairvoyance, and then my psychic visions and impressions (and nighttime faces) began to make a bit more sense.

So When Seeing Faces at Night… Are They Ghosts?

While I first worried these nighttime faces were ghosts, and you may be wondering about this too, they usually aren't. If you keep seeing the exact same face, there is a chance this may be a spirit with a message for you. But, if you're seeing the ‘show of faces' flashing across your minds eye, this is much much more often the reflections of your inner thoughts and impressions which you're starting to tune into clairvoyantly, somewhat like gazing into a mirror. When this happens, your brain works to assign characteristics to the vague patterns of light and energy you're receiving, and you start seeing a string of faces in the dark.

In addition, seeing faces with your eyes closed can be the beginning of receiving visions of future possibilities, people you will meet, histories you have lived, and ancestors you are connected with. You may be catching a clairvoyant glimpse into parallel realities, alternate dimensions, the Akashic records, or you may simply be receiving psychic information regarding the various stages of the human experience. You are after all one with everyone and everything, and as you open spiritually you will begin to tune into and experience this in your own unique way.

As I mentioned above, rarely is seeing faces at night the result of spirits visiting you… So don't worry! If you do find yourself responding with fear, know that you can call upon Divine white light, and on Archangel Michael for protection.

You can also call on the angels for help opening your third eye more fully so you can better understand what you're seeing, and to decipher the information you do visually receive. By staying focused on responding to life with love and compassion, developing spiritually, and raising your vibration, you will naturally open your third eye.

I have experienced this numerous times. It doesn’t scare me. It makes me curious!

Peggy McCormack says August 14, 2017

I have experienced this from time. to time. It just happens. Its very scary. The first time I saw a place. There was a horizon at twilight and there was someone there with her back to me. She seemed like a strong force, waiting for me, but I resisted. It was not in between sleep and wake, I had only just closed my eyes. Some times I see swirling lights, sometimes faces, but they seem to be me. Its bright, like I am raising my face to the sun, but I am in a dark room. I’m not near sleep ever, but I still have to fight it to make it stop. Its different than me just having a visual thought or a dream. I was told by a psychic that I was suppose to be a teacher of psychic stuff, I guess, but I am afraid. what does all this really mean?

John says July 13, 2017

For about 5 days in a row in early spring of 2012, I believe I experienced another dimension/reality/timeline in the form of normal scenes and after the 5th day, the ‘visions” slowly dissipated. I’m a mid 50’s healthy male who experienced this without the use of drugs or alcohol and while 100% conscious and awake. When experiencing this, I was not frightened but I wanted no part of it because it was around me constantly for those days.

The best I can describe, my/our reality was slightly overlapping another reality and that reality was slightly overlapping mine. The overlapping percentage of realities was very slight but they varied in intensities of say from 0.1% to 2% and it was ‘see-through” and easily seen against a non-detailed plain background like a white wall in the house, or in the dark or behind the lids of your eyes. Slight intensities are difficult to distinguish because of the subtle variances of greys are difficult to make-out at first until you focus. But strong intensities were in full color, some sound, smell and touch. It was everywhere around me at home, work and other places. The lighter the surroundings, the harder it is to see depending on the intensity of the reality available.

I saw roughly 6-7 “scenes” or places and they would change or alternate every so often with no pattern. But the scenes were off in terms of styles or cultures. Scenes were absolutely uncontrollable, like looking out the window or watching a movie. The scenes themselves were almost normal but like I said, slightly off. Beach scenes, city scenes, sports, etc, sitting behind the cockpit of a plain, etc. I see faces as well which I believe is the same phenomenon. I believe I experienced all humans and known animals and earth-like settings. In some “scenes” the culture and dress attire where strange and other scenes where more modern American-like. It looked like some humans where focusing their eyes on me acknowledging my “presence”, only for me to wonder, “what were they seeing in their reality when they where looking at me?” Was I seeing through someone elses eyes in that other reality? Was I in that reality in another lifetime? Was it a TV broadcast or broadcast of some sort? One thing I can tell you, the print or letters/ text I see in these visions was not English or any recognizable language. Strange.

I don’t know if I experienced another timeline or dimension occurring at the same time as mine.
I don’t know if I was viewing something that already occurred or had not occurred yet.
I don’t know if I was viewing something taking place on our earth or not.

I’m so thankful to have found your article. I had a pretty intense experience last night.
I was asleep and dreaming of being inside of a Victorian house. I was walking around but it was like I was looking at everything through the lens of a camera. Every room I was in and everywhere I looked with a reflective surface, a face would appear. Fade in and fade out. Every face was different…male, female. I saw many many faces throughout my walk around the house.
About that time Son woke me up and when I closed my eyes I was right back in the house walking around again but I was awake. I opened my eyes and it stopped. I closed my eyes and I was back there again. I could tell I was going back there by the way my ‘vision’ (with closed eyes) would be cloudy until I focused through the ‘camera lens’ (that’s the best way I know to describe it) This went on for a while until I finally fell back asleep.
As I was waking up when my alarm went off this morning, I was dreaming the same thing but in a different location. After I hit snooze, I was wide awake but closed my eyes and I went right back there again. It wasn’t necessarily scary…startling maybe because it was like nothing I’ve ever experienced.

    Amazing story! Thanks, Veronica. I think when we dream during sleep, we are actually experiencing these same visions we see when we’re awake but the brain interprets and interacts with them differently.

This used to happen to me every night before bed. Only, it would occur when my eyes were open, in the dark. The faces were usually moving, drifting around the room. Some laughing and smiling and some crying. It was very scary but I eventually got used to it. Now, in my 40’s, it rarely happens.

I been having expirences much like that picture on top of this article, I use to dismiss them because the were hard to make out, but one night one stood out from the rest and was big face that appeared to be trying to intimidate and it was sat up right and turned but it wouldn’t leave my vision so I prayed till it left. But I feel a lot better knowing more people share similar experiences

Renee Turner says April 8, 2017

Thank you for your insight. I have been seeing things before I fall asleep as well. Mostly during prayer but some times not. It started with dreams that seemed like warnings before I would wake up. Then I started seeing things just with my eyes closed as a kind of light that would move around but now it’s faces and pictures and scenes. But the amazing thing is it all started when I started growing spiritually. Does it grow to more?

Last night I went to bed and closed my eyes and start seeing a slide show of faces . one woman’s face came up 3 times. She had kind of a stern look on her face. I try to focus on these faces while my eyes are shut, this has happened many times. It doesn’t make me nervous. I would like to talk to them if they are spirits. I don’t know who they are. I was told by a psychic before that I have the ability to be a medium or communicate…she was reading my right palm which happens to have the letter m. .please tell me what this all means and how can I advance this

my eyes see faces and animals. the people I see are from different centuries. theirs one right after the other behind my lids. this don’t happen all the time. every now and then. but its fun to me. I try making a movie behind my eyelids. I thought it might happen from things store in the brain, maybe I saw during the day and got stored up in my brain. then comes out at night.

    John says July 22, 2017

    Hi Sandy, I think what we see is from other realities or timelines/dimensions bleeding through or slightly overlapping our reality.That’s my gut feeling and I could be wrong. I don’t think we have any control over what we see. I think we only see what’s available because I’ve read about more than one persons seeing the same exact thing at the same time in the same space/area. Then maybe they’re photographable/recordable if bright enough which I never tried. Can you please explain why you thought they were from different centuries? Please be descriptive if possible. Have you seen different cultures recognizable or not recognizable in our world’s past history? How about other worldly stuff or non-humans? This subject fascinates me because and I have a lot of questions like the exact cause of this and what we’re seeing in the broader sense, for instance where and when the subject matter of these visions are located. I have seen a lot of strange cultures of groups of people in my visions and have done massive research and I’m convinced these cultures did not actually exist in our world’s history. That’s why I think we are seeing another reality or alternate timelines/dimensions.

      Hi John,

      I, too, see faces as I go to sleep and have for as long as I can remember, I am 52. It’s usually 1 to 2 faces when I see them, not a slide show as others have mentioned. I have seen faces of different nationalities, different time periods (native american, confederate soldier, etc.), children, animals, the eye of an elephant (repeatedly), houses, scenes. A few weeks back I actually saw my face as a child, that has been the most interesting, by far. The faces are most often side profile while others are from the front. They are never looking directly at me. The emotion I most sense from the faces is sadness and grief; however some are happy, pretty & handsome, and others are troubled. A few times I have seen evil and “dark” faces. Two days ago I saw a native american with her hair pulled back and she was crying very hard.
      I have recently started writing down the images I see along with the date. It bothers me when I see the sad, hopeless faces.

I’m pregnant in my later third trimester. I’m 24 living with my grandparents. I often have to get up in the middle of the night in the dark to pee. Well I have been having nothing but baby dreams tonight and out of the blue I had a frightening vision dream of opening my shower curtain and there being a beautiful girl staring at me with long bright red hair and red lips and I literally scared myself awake and can’t go back to sleep. I’m not even having a girl I’m having a boy and I don’t understand why I saw this in my dream. Whenever I see a creepy face staring at me like that it worries me. I’ve always been told faces are ghosts. But I’ve never actually seen ghosts. But I have had dreams of dark ghost figures with red eyes but not since I was 17. I’m wondering if this is a demon. Yesterday for the first time I heard breathing that wasn’t my own. I’m starting to think this house is haunted. Or I’m really stressed out because I’m pregnant.

The “slideshow” of faces before sleep is exactly what I have been experiencing for about 8 years. I am able to think, but not speak so I lay there thinking I don’t know that person, I’ve never seen that person. The faces are very detailed and each one so different. About five years ago I told someone about it as it was happening every night and right after I did, they completely stopped for about two years.

My 12 year old grand daughter has been having trouble with sleeping & having nightmares. She states she’s been seeing “dark shadows” in the night upon waking & they are scary to her.
I’ve always thought my grand daughter has had some kind of “psychic ability”, even though she is slightly learning disabled.
She has ALWAYS had an extra special sense of things around her & being extremely sensitive to others feelings.
What can I do as her grandmother to try & help her through this difficult time ??? My son & daughter in law are in dis belief of anything Taylor tells them, & this upsets & frustrates Taylor.
Please help if you can….

Sincerely,

Vanessa Fellows

    I am so pleased to have read this!! When I was younger I always saw coloured shapes when my eyes were closed and I always remember asking my brother and others if they had that to, to which they replied they hadn’t. However through teenagehood, this ability faded and I did not encounter this experience again. It was not until I got to university, the day after a big night out, I started seeing faces and reanactments from a film I watched a couple of nights prior. The detail astonished me, I was fascinated that I could relive the moment without actually having to watch the film on my laptop. However, I started to see random faces and the side of a horses face which started to frighten me as these images were alien to my knowledge. Now I am capable of doing it whenever I close my eyes, sometimes I may need to be in a dark room. After reading this I feel so much better. Thank you.

the past few weeks i started having flashes of faces. and wasnt sure exactly what i was seeing. if i was going crazy. it is very odd as i never had any of this happen before. but i know its not coming from the spot on my brain where i day dream from. when this happens is always after or during i say my prayers at night. i start to see flashes of light or shapes then at times faces. i can even see the mouths move of the people i have never met but i can hear nothing. my forehead gets cold and tingly and covers my scalp. once i realize this isnt the start of my dream it goes away. so i did find this article very helpful as it answered a few of my questions. thank you.

I’ve been studying and practicing witchcraft the past few months. I feel very peaceful and attuned with nature as a result. Last night as I was falling asleep I was seeing really scary faces flashing in my mind. I called to the god and goddess to protect me, and was able to fall asleep after that. I take this as a sign I’m following the right path for me, as some other entity would try and scare me away. I have to call on my faith and be strong. Thank you for the insight!

Hey there, I have been working on opening up my third eye and developing clairvoyant senses for a little bit now. I started practicing reiki and getting attuned this last year as well (I teach yoga as a profession and practice wholeheartedly still and that’s opened me up a huge amount to my subtle body). I’ve recently only dabbled in opening up my akashic records and trying to channel and I’ve asked my guides to help open me up energetically to start receiving more information to guide me. Last night I was trying to fall asleep but every time I started getting relaxed I saw a flash of a very random face in my third eye and it would jolt me a bit. It kept happening every time I tried to relax and it then started to make me a bit fearful. I’ve had visions during my reiki attunements and when I work on clients sometimes but it’s minimal. As I tried to continue to fall asleep I then realized that this might be my guides helping me open up and that’s why I was seeing these faces but I didn’t understand it further than that. I was then able to relax a bit and I pictured myself being surrounded in white light and called upon archangel Michael (I’ve only recently been thinking more about him and had experienced him in another healing session that I received recently). I decided to look it up this morning and found this article first. Everything seemed to click and connect and made sense to me. I also found it interesting that what you recommended for protection is what I did instinctually. I wanted to share my experience and thank you for writing this. I feel like I’m searching for knowledge and excited to work on myself in this way so I appreciate finding help like this on the web! It helps confirm the journey and give ease to my logical mind as I allow my clairvoyant and healer self begin to blossom. Thanks again! Shanti 🙂

Hi. I found this very interesting. Since I was small, I have seen what you described as ‘flashes of light’ etc. When I was in fourth grade I clearly saw my great grandparents months after they had passed and I had spent all that time crying… as I was so close to them. For 30years I never told a soul about that, until my brother 2 yr younger than me and I were talking one night about something else, and he suddenly said he had something he wanted to talk about, but I would think he was crazy. He told me that one night when he was 7… I knew what he was going to say. I let him continue.. but the same thing happened to him. Not only did we both SEE them, but they told us the same thing. ‘To not cry any longer, they were alright and we will be together again one day. They loved us’ After that we were both okay. We both felt better knowing we weren’t nuts! I don’t know about him.. but I still ‘saw’ things.. lights when I had my eyes closed, shapes etc. Dreams that didn’t make sense to me at all… and now recently, they have become very vivid.. including faces- which they have never done- of people I don’t know. before if it were a family member, I just ‘knew’. But like last night, I was with my aunt, my cousin who is a minister was there ( she doesn’t fit- but maybe because its Christmas time and she is a minister for salvation army… and the bells are everywhere… I don’t know… lol) any way= there was me, a younger girl I didn’t know, asking how old I was- I remember telling her I was between her and my aunts age.. not sure if I should say. There was also a couple there a man and woman, older than me. I didn’t recognize them. We were all in the same room… at one point, someone was taking a picture. Then I woke up at my normal time of 3am. when I did… and opened my eyes, there was a very clear image of a person, I am sure a man head and shoulders, hand under chin… almost like he would be sitting looking at me waiting for me to wake… he was looking at me. Not ghostly clear, but not solid but I could see features enough. And it wasn’t where I couldn’t move, like when you are still dreaming… I could see him and still move to get up. Only after I sat up was it gone. So strange. I have never discounted things like this… just as I never discounted ‘believing’ in what you can’t see… I guess that is why I believed in santa much longer than most kids… the air you can’t see unless it blows something to make move.. but it is there…. you can’t ‘see’ God, but he is there… people believe that. So why not these things. 🙂 Thanks for this page… I bookmarked it.

I’m a 30+ year old “trying to be” buddhist person, and a mechanical engineer, and I see sometimes faces when relaxing. If I’m physically sick, like having a flu, I may see demonic faces. They appear out of the blue in the mind’s eye, very clear and in color, lasting about 1 second, enough to make a scare-face. If I’m focusing on good or buddhist topics and feelings, there’s no problem, and I more often see actually happy faces, even crying tears of happiness, or smiling warmly, or laughing with tears in their eyes, so that’s ok… Right now I have a flu and when I was taking a nap, suddenly a small head of a gross older woman appeared and turning its head down it opened its mouth. It was demonic. After that even more undead face flashed, now in the middle of my view (with closed eyes), but it was very fast. After that nothing came. Before this I haven’t seen those in weeks, but have been focusing on ghost-stories and -video’s research for a week now… Listening dhamma-talks (buddhist) of monks and ajahns from YouTube makes everything okay. All disturbances cease. It’s a good source of well-being for sure!

I have seen the faces since I was a child as well. I was never scared of it, just wondered what the meaning was because it seemed to be quite random to see faces I was not familiar with in my life. I often wondered if I was just crazy and found this article and it’s comforting to know this happens to others.

I was actually looking up a meaning for something else and came across this article. This is really awesome and thanks for posting it.

Something different happened to me this morning. And it scares me a bit. When I was waking up this morning, I seen a white skull, just a skull not a full skeleton, floating above the side of my bed and it was looking at me. It scares me because my grandmother had a similar vision when she woke up, of a single skull in the room with her and it flew into her face. Less than a year later, really 6 months later, she died. I am only 27 and I don’t see myself dying anytime soon but it scares me that maybe it’s my time. I’m not sure.

I have however, been going through a terrible time in life though. Lots of family quarrels and I lost a job and just have had generally really bad luck over the course of about 4 years now, ever since my grandmother died, honestly. I’m hoping that maybe this means this lifestyle is about to end and it will be like a whole new life for me.

It is also the day before my husband’s mom’s birthday and she has been going through a lot of health issues and is 71, so maybe it has something to do with her. Her health has been slowly declining and it is very possible for her to die soon.

Another thing I thought is maybe it’s not warning of death for me, but this is a demon or evil spirit. I do pray for protection over this house every night and fill this house with bright white light and ask angels to keep this house free of evil spirits and entities. Only thing is my mother watches paranormal shows all the time and my sister has an overactive imagination and has said that she invited an evil spirit in. I started seeing shadow figures when I first moved in, in the room she used to sleep in that was now my room and she admitted to letting this spirit in, but I have not seen it since we prayed about it that night. Maybe that spirit is still here? There is a lot of chaos in this house, between my mother and step dad and my husband and I. He is always trying to fight with me lately… I just don’t know.

I do feel however, that if life continues the way it is for me, this could very possibly put me in an early grave. I have thought this for a while, I am a very sensitive clairvoyant and enough negative energy drains me a lot more than others from what I have noticed. I also require more sleep. Most people need 6-8, I need 10-12. Actually, as I type my mother is yelling at my step dad right now.

I just don’t know but I hope it’s not pertaining to my death because I am not ready to die and feel as though I am not finished with what I need to do here in the physical. That would be just my luck though with the way things have gone, honestly.

I ask for prayers. I am a good person with a big heart. Sometimes too big of a heart from what people tell me. I wish nothing but the best for everyone on this earth and the entire universe for that matter. I meditate on things coming back into balance every day. I meditate on our planet surrounded by the white light and red symbolizing love and passion.

I hope that maybe it’s just my imagination?

I see the faces/animal spirits all day long, not just at night. There is a book by Barry Long, an enlightened australian spiritual teacher, called “stillness is the way” in which he talks about the world of the living dead and dying living and how there are psychic entities that want to feed on our emotional responses to them. Could be worth looking into.

    One night these visions started out of the blue. They were very violent and disturbing images, such as an alien grey taking out a mans eyeball or faces of different species of aliens. But since then I can always have visions of moving and shape shifting geometric patters and shapes. I would like to know how I can get visions other than these shapes. I’m 19 years old and these visions are not going away. It happened in June and I’ve had them since. Any advice?

      Hi Denny, I’ve seen disturbing stuff like this as well. I was trying to focus on something like you described and another grey starred at me right in front of my face and startled me and I lost focus. I guess he didn’t want me “looking in” to their business. Can you please describe other scenes you’ve witnessed? Thanks.

I have been experiencing this for a while now. It usually freaks me out because it just started out as streaks of light and colors and shapes. But now it’s super distorted, creepy, demonic faces sometimes. None of them ever look the same and I never hear anything, I just see them. And they’re gone in a second and another one pops up. I am so glad I found this article because I really started to question my sanity. I’m glad I’m not the only one.

mine experience is just like the most here.I think mine started with me hearing voices just like am in a market place or a stadium with everyone talking at the same time and i never heard a word and there is me hearing commentator on a radio and channels been changed with the static sound with it and hearing also of music over and over again and sometimes 2 or 3 songs in replay. All this i mentioned above i heard all at the same time.

it happens when am tired or when am done praying to my father JEHOVAH then it happens and when i try to concentrate to hear what the voices are saying it begins to fade away and when i stop the concentration it comes back again.

Seeing of people faces that i dont know and things like cars,books,chairs and other things started coming up when i close my eyes. sometimes i see short scenes of people moving around doing things and it also always distracts me when am praying because i would not be able to concentrate on my prayers.
Like one time a saw a car moving in a desert like place with dust raising at its wake and then suddenly i started seeing it from the sky like a birds eye view.

Few days back when i was about to sleep i saw a shape of white color just briefly with a high pitch sound which almost sound like a static sound and it was almost painful and i had to tilt my head very fast because i felt it in my ears.

I think its happens when my mind is clear that is completely empty then i start hearing voices. Because i believe when we are tired we tend not to think just sleep. And please dont take marijuana to have a clear mind because marijuana can make you concentrate on anything,trust me it wasnt fun,it was torture because i didnt hear voices or see images just me been not in control of my thoughts which was funny because i thought of trucks moving on me or fire burning and my body was in shock the whole time like it was real,i could not sleep. And No i didnt take marijuana intentionally,it was in a birthday cake of a friend of friend so i didnt no until it was too late. But i tired a smaller quantity and it was same but wasnt that painful.

Am curious about what this means for us.

Long story short I was very lost a few years ago I prayed so hard for the truth, within a week I was rushed in to hospital with a serious illness and I almost died. Ever since that day things changed one thing that I began to experience was that I saw faces before I fell to sleep it would mostly be a different person every night. The face would be clear and the background black. They would mostly be looking at me trying to talk to me but I can never hear the words. This journey is still so new for me. During the day I get random twiches like my brain wants to shut off how can i control this?

    I have stumbled upon this website, as last night was the “final straw” for me and my “visions”. It happens right before bed, and I have a difficult time going to sleep. Normally, I just see people faintly, that are moving around the room. Last night, my daughter fell asleep next to me (she is 18). I saw a man, with a plaid shirt on… walk around the bed and stop at the door. He just stood there. I screamed and woke her up, as I was terrified. He just stood there, and eventually walked out (although the door was closed). I was afraid so I turned on the lights and she was afraid as well.
    Sometimes, when i see people, I am not scared…other times, it feels as though there is something in the room that is not supposed to be there.
    I am a near death experiencer and I have been through quite a “spiritual awakening” since 2011. It has been exciting, yet a bit strange at times. Sleep is something that has been difficult, as i am almost always waken up by someone or something that i can sense in the room. The last time this happened, my cat was aware as well. I just wish I didn’t get that “oh shit” feeling, but I sense at times, that there is something not very nice around..and I know my gut is right about this.
    Help!!!

People talk about seeing faces right before sleep. I do too, but I also see faces when I close my eyes a few minutes in the subway or during my lunch break at work, etc. And it’s not only faces. I sometimes see moving images, like a short video… And sometimes I hear a few words… Not in my head, not around me but like it is only in my ear and very far… I’ve heard my name quite a few times. All this used to happen only once in a while… But since few weeks, it happens almost everyday and sometimes several times a day. But feeling like I hear words doesn’t happen often, though…

Sometimes, I also wake up at night and see stange things with my eyes wide open. I will always remember the day I opened my eyes to find myself in an old house. I could see my bedroom walls “behind” my vision as well as the grey brick wall. And over my head there was a cavity with junk in it, as if I was in some kind of ruin that modern humanity would have trashed. Or the other time I woke up and found myself in a room filled with so much stuff. I closed my eyes and reopened them and I was still there. So I closed my eyes again and I sat in my bed and when I opened my eyes again, I was back in my bedroom.

Honestly, I think this is very fascinating. I used to be scared but now I look forward to these experiences. I like that a lot even if I don’t understand it….

    Lane, This is a fascinating post! Thank you. I think what we are seeing is actually occurring in 3D space but it’s most noticeable against the darkness or a plain background. You’ll notice when watching these scenes, your viewpoint or angle changes when you move your direction of sight. In other words, when you moved your head up saw a different part of the scene. So it was all around you in 3D. That’s how you know it’s real and not in your head. In my opinion, it’s as if two realities are occupying the same physical space. Our own reality is 100% solid but there’s another reality overlapping ours that is only for instance 1% solid but the solidness varies. Some visions are strong, full color, some sound, smell and greater than 1% solid while other visions/scenes are so faint, you can barely make out the tiny differences in shades of grey. What do you think is happening? Thx.

I see faces every night when I close my eyes to go to sleep. For me, it’s like shape shifters. I see human faces that turn to animals and vice versa. The faces just keep changing from one thing to another about every second or so, and they just float in and out. I thought it was strange, so I Googled it and found this page. Glad I’m not alone.

Whenever I close my eyes (especially in the dark) I can always see random shapes of different colors and if I look at them long enough they usually take form and then I start seeing random suggestion of faces or features of a face. I’ve always had this and I thought this was normal until I mentioned it, rather casually, to my mom lol. Then I started looking stuff up about it and now i’m here.

I see faces when I close my eyes at night. I have now seen faces in and amongst trees in the woods. I also have heard my name being called on two separate occasions when no one else was home. I know I have spirits in my home as I’ve caught many orbs on film. I’ve seen orbs in many different colors, with faces. I was told by a psychic that I’ve crossed over to the other side twice in this lifetime and that I’m a very old soul who’s had many past lives. I feel this is a gift and the faces (spirits) come to me to be seen. I don’t know how or if I can help them. I’m learning more and trying to strenghten my spiritual abilities.

May says December 21, 2015

I have seen faces for some years when I am either dropping off to sleep or waking up. I never see them in colour, only black, white, grey. Sometimes only the eyes, most often the whole face quite clearly. Judging from hairstyles, spectacles and clothes, they look like they come from different eras, 1940s, even medieval. Not anymore but some used to look like gargoyles. Some are handsome, very calm and placid looking, nice to look at and they just seem to stare directly at me. None of them speak. Some want to stay a while and some go almost immediately. However, I have come to believe that they are spirits and therefore I don’t tolerate them anymore. Whilst they do not seem aggressive, spirits can cause many problems in your life, not all of them are good. Therefore when they appear I make the sign of the cross, sometimes I say “go to Jesus he will help you” but mostly I keep making the sign of the cross until they disappear. Some go straightaway but others want to linger but if you keep making the sign of the cross they will go, hopefully to a peaceful place. Saw one this morning who didn’t want to go and I had to make the sign of the cross about six times.

With all due respect to everyone, with all these experiences everyone is having, has anyone considered that these are demons, or evil entities masquerading as angels of light? I know that is a far off belief for some, but all this stuff started happening to me too. All I can say is the Bible and biblical prophesy started to make sense to me, when before I thought it was all just like a fable or fairy tale. I pray to Jesus to take these experiences away from me and I have been protected and sheltered by the Lord. I have never been much of a practicing or believing Christian before, but these experiences brought me to Jesus. We are in the midst of a spiritual battle for our souls, and please know the bible says that satan masquerades as angel of light. Please be careful everyone and consider asking Jesus into your heart to aid and protect you.

Hello! I see objects, and faces floating and flashing. I saw two faces floating in a portrait mirror floating in the middle of my bedroom and the man was smiling at me, the woman he was embracing was turned the other way and all I could see was her white hair. I also saw the man in the hat with a tall figure like an American Indian because it was in the form of one wearing a blanket of some sort draped all over, and had something tall from its head as if they were feathers or women’s hair pins like the Japanese women wear. They were standing in my hallway peering back and forth to my bedroom. Never did they catch eyes with me. They looked to be in a discussion and the Indian was using hand movements like he was having a discussion with the man in the suit, the suit man had his hands upon his hips as if he was upset and peering from my room to the Indian for at least five minutes or so. They looked like dark black cut outs of construction paper people but real. The next day I was under the stairwell looking for a box and as I was under with my dachshund, I heard a child and mother singing Merry Christmas and laughing, my dog heard it and started scratching the packages. I looked all through the boxes and cards and never saw anything that would make sounds. After seeing these people and hearing the singing I got a call that my niece was killed in a car crash along with her unborn child several days later. I hear sounds all through my home. But everything calmed down after the death of my niece, except the images and faces I see. My husband and I occasionally hear sounds in the house, lights turning off and I assume that the bulb has blown so I get up to turn the switch and the light is burning again. I’ve heard my dachshunds barking in the night and I heard someone say Hush Now. I was afraid at first not sleeping and my hair was turning white. After the funeral service I was never afraid again.

I was really pleased to read your article. I have been experiencing this at night for a while and its been freaking me out. These faces are right up to mine staring at me. I feel like my eyes are open, Im not sure if they are?. Mine are not all the same, they are all different.

In the last 8 years I have experienced seeing spirits, but only vaguely. I have seen them in several houses. I see them in different ways each time. My most recent one was movement in my kitchen, I can see a clear figure sort of waving at me. It started happening after a dear friend passed over 3 years ago. I never got to go to his funeral. But pretty much straight away I saw this clear thing flashing at the corner of my eye and waving at me, it went on randomly for about 3 months. I though maybe it was him?.I had a strong feeling in my gut it really was.My home also became haunted in a previous house, weird stuff happened and I just knew I had visitors, one afternoon when all the plugs flew out of the wall, and the power was flickering on and off, just like in the movies.I began to see some strange things.
I had clairvoyants and a healer I knew come in and do a cleansing as I was scared, I participated in the ceremony, weirdly I felt cold and hot and I heard the voices of the spirits (children laughing). It was so weird. I saw ghostly figures, quite detailed, and a man in sunlight in my room at midnight, the room was full of golden rays, then he disappeared. I thought I was going crazy to be honest. The spiritualists asked the spirits who they were, they were a family from another time that has passed in a fire. They were looking for their mother, and attached themselves to me. They eventually moved on with some help. I was told by my spiritualist friends Im be starting to “see”…..I would love to know where its going?….I would love to see better??…..I saw the clear figure flashing again 2 nights ago in the kitchen?.

Thank you so much for this article. This has been happening since I moved into the house I live in. It looks almost precisely like the picture at the top of the article. I have wondered if they were ghosts. The faces are distinct enough that I’m fairly certain that they are entirely strange to me. It happens fast enough that I can’t tell if they are the same faces or not. The first time it happened, I smudged the house. I was concerned about unwanted spirits. It’s like they are wanted to just take a peek at me and move on.

yes, thank you so much for this information. I used to see faces and sets of eyes particularly when I was young all the time at night. It would frighten me to the point where I couldn’t stand having pictures or posters on my bedroom wall because I thought it must surely be what I was seeing or causing these images. Then at the age of 15 I was developing spiritually but became quite depressed (something I’ve struggled with as a hsp) and started hearing a loud booming male voice. It was like subconsciously I knew what was being said but I couldn’t make it out. I was so scared that I was having a mental break down and terrified of being labeled crazy and being medicated that I never told anyone and ended up just blocking it out.

Ok I’m a little confused because on one hand this article explains that it is the third eye opening and on the other hand it’s saying it’s a psychological phenomenon . Pareidolia in the dictionary means ” the imagined perception of a pattern or meaning where it does not exist” it’s picking a face out of Vegemite on a piece of toast or an animal in the clouds. I have also seen faces ever since I can remember and it has never been scary to me at all, I have always found it very facinating and let them flow. I have always assumed I was seeing people on the other side as these faces are quite distinct in characteristics and I would never have thought that my brain could ever have ” imagined” such details. If these faces are reflections of myself or past lives that I am tuning into, well that’s facinating also. I guess I just need it to be explained more, but as the article says ……. I will find out as I develop more I guess

Yes Melanie this describes me. I have live with Pareidolia and I have it to the tenth power as I call it, also I can see these spirits from ethereal world or something. They are like Angels trying to come close enough for me to make out their faces. I feel they are my angels and guide and from time to time a very clear face pops up then it goes just as quickly as it appeared. I get a very deep loving vibe from them. I am still learning to get the hang of maintaining it in view longer. I can also see energy in the air, holographic graphs of some sorts, I can sometimes see a grid in sky and the geometrical shape in a honeycomb format. Thank you for all you do for us Melanie. I love you. Blessings. Namaste

I see the faces when I first wake up in the morning. It’s about 30 seconds of faces and scenes flashing like a slideshow. I see some strange stuff sometimes, like a boy with his lips sewn together.

When I ask them to show themselves I start hearing noises, like my bedroom door rattling or other distance sounds this freaks me out and then I ask for it all to stop. I often ask if they can return to me during the day time as I won’t be as scared for the first time, but this hasn’t happened as yet. I will try to be brave and called on archangel Michael and a white light to help me through it. Thank you for the information it was most useful.

Yes, I see them. When I close my eyes for bed. I can also see them other places, one being the tiles on the bathroom floor. I often see the face of Jesus. I do not know what it means. I can see both men and women faces and animals as well. If I point out a face to someone who is with me, they do not see the face or the same thing at all. I see flashes of bright colors. Usually white or royal blue. A beautiful blue. They all scared me as I do not know why I see them. I even told my eye doctor about the flashes of light but not the faces. I have cataracts and am a glaucoma suspect so that is why I told him, thinking it had something to do with that. He did not say anything about them. Thank you for telling about the faces and flashes of light. I feel better now. I was worried it was my eyes as well. The faces do scare me, but now I may not be as afraid. Thank you.

For me it helps closing my central and governing meridians before going to sleep. One can do it using hands or just in your mind. Than I can sleep peacefully. These kind of flashes strike me as a after meditation cleans, especially after catching other peoples energies through out the day. After doing energy work I even get to see some stuck entities. Bud I give it all to light, or call upon Michael. He winks!

Thank you for this article. I see faces every time I close my eyes and often they kiss. In the last few months I have also seen flashes of light at the corners of my eyes and recently am seeing bright flashes in the room with me. I know they are not to be feared as I believe they are part of the other realms, spirits, angels.
I am being awakened.

Melanie I am able to connect now to the centre of earth(down) and to the source (above). I know, feel sense and see that they are helping and at any time I can go within and receive guidance as to my next step or steps.
I have to say though that I still don’t know what to do with this new ability of mine.
I sense, feel and see so much in meditation now. Only thing left is to be able to hear them talking.

Oh btw: In doing your meditations I have seen a face and this face is actually reciting what you have channeled. WI believe it is the angel, archangel who you are channeling for.

Thank you so much, for your meditations are helping me on this new path of awakening.

Much Love

And, I do see abstract faces in random objects, but also, while meditating, I see what looks like black and white old portrait photos of men that flash very quickly from one to another. However, once a color pictured of my sister (who crossed-over) was in the mix. Very interesting. Glad to have some light shed on this experience. Thanks

i also see faces, some human some animals, but now my husband is seeing them as well. 🙂
When I close my eyes to meditate I see a succession of eyes, most of them looking right into mine… Although mine are closed… Maybe they are looking into my third eye? Some are children’s eyes and some are really old.
I never thought to ask them what they are trying to tell me…..
Thank you Melanie.

I started to see faces when closing my eyes before going to bed since late September. A lot of faces I had/have never seen before. 99% of the time, not scary at all, but the small 1% left, I think I have seen scary evil ones (that’s where I pray).
Last night, I saw a Happy skeleton kind of dancing around…?
I sometimes see light flashes, luminous geometric shares moving.

I have no idea what all this really means – I still wonder.

Thank you for your posts, I really much enjoy reading them every day.

Infinite Gratitude.

Ive been seeibg faces for as long as I can remember. I also see eyes or just one. None of it scares me. The eye I usually see is mine. Dark brown and I can recognize it as mine, I believe it is my third eye showing me its open. Sometimes it appears closed, sometimes it blinks and moves and im sure tries to tell me things. I also see eagle eyes right in front of mine when my eyes are closed. I think this eagle is with me as a guide. All in all I’ve always wondered why I see the faces, sime are extremely clear others not so. They often look at me and smile..then fade to another face. Its pretty entertaining when there’s no fear. I love it.

    The animals could be identified in your family crest which is how families kept track of their geneolgy or which tribe they were from.

I had no idea that seeing faces at night meant anything about my psychic abilities! I always pushed them away ignored them, or just thought it nothing. Thanks for the article! I asked my angels to help open my 3rd eye! This is awesomee!!! Thanks Melanie! ❤️

I’ve been seeing geometric shapes/grids over the last few months and have just started seeing slideshows of faces – human, caveman, animal etc. It’s really interesting to watch and is never scary. This article has come up just at the right time as it has answered many questions for me. Thank you 🙂

When I was about 26 I saw faces and images for a whole year and was dead scared. Now it is only occasionally and more like knowing somebody has trouble or hasn’t shaped up or is ill or is in town and planning to come and visit . Sometimes I know about things happening in my professional or social scene without having heard or read about it or hearing some words or numbers informing me. Sometimes I see geometric shapes I once saw the most amazing very large shining aura of a friend of mine without knowing at the time. This person communicated with me in a hilarious way from the other side after he died in a motor accident while I was reading the telegram informing me about it. Only I could have known about it. A while ago I had an experience of awe right next to me of sound and movement, and so many many syncronicitys every day which I now understand

I also see faces at the starting time of sleep. First I was not comfortable wit it, now I am at ease with these faces, and same has been reciprocated by the them, Now I see them smiling and happy being with me. I enjoy this time and perhaps they also. God Bless Them All and You for bringing this insight and clearing the mist.

This makes a lot of sense to me , I cant say I see faces , I hear names and when I concentrate on the name I start hearing music and the message is in the songs that I hear .People tell me that they feel my energy healing them just by talking to them , just the other day a friend I met through face book came to visit and she just started feeling sleepy and I let her sleep a bit and when she woke up we started talking and I connected with her ancestors from back to the year 1818, best reading ever.

Finally an explanation, would have been helpful 30 years ago but better late than never.

Seeing the ‘faces’, (i even called it that) was something that happened to me at night from when i can remember. When i closed my eyes, when i had them open basically everywhere i looked there they were.

I thought this was normal until and that everyone saw them until i was around 8 or 9, i mentioned it to my sister who was 3 years younger than me and made her afraid of the dark, poor thing. i then told my Dad who thought i was a nut job and basically told me to block it out otherwise i would need to see somebody and so thats what i did, blocked it out.

Its still shut now and im 33 even though i realised a while ago it was a gift i had, im now afraid to allow myself to see things. I get flashes sometimes and visions when im doing treatments and meditating but nothing more. Ive tried to see the ‘faces’ like before but at the same time i block it as soon as something shows.

Whilst this article explains a lot, it also upsets me that the knowledge wasnt as readily available all those years ago so that i could have wrote down what i saw and developed further, so that i didnt scare my sister and parents.

Whilst some people may say it was what was meant to happen and its one of my challenges to overcome, it still does make me sad.

Yes, Melanie. I have seen faces when I close my eyes to sleep, to meditate, and when close my eyes to wash my face or rinse my face in the shower, etc. as long as I can remember. They are not frightening however, just faces. They are of different ethnicities, both sexes, different time periods and all ages. I’ve thought of trying to sketch them but haven’t. I’ve wondered if perhaps these are previous incarnations, or people from my previous incarnations, or spiritual guides, ancient ancestors, etc. Only here, has someone addressed it. Thank you so much for this information. I am grateful to have finally found some type of explanation for this.

I always see faces before I go to sleep, but I was never scared, at least I know now what it means. I’m going through a lot at the moment so my third eye is pretty much redundant at the moment.

This is something I’ve been asking myself like forever! I’ve asked other people who are in the Psychic field and they all looked at me if I was the one being crazy seeing things that were product of my imagination. Never got an answer from anyone about it. It doesn’t happen to me often, but when it did, it happened out of the blue and very crystal clear. Never knew the person who appeared and most of the times, they appeared in a not very nice way. I could see their pain, sadness and the state of how they passed. I’ve had a few where are smiling and even dancing. Thank you for posting this. Now I know I’m not crazy.

This is a very interesting article! Every night when I close my eyes, I first see white light followed by colors, purple colors mostly. Once I am totally relaxed and starting to fall asleep I have experienced seeing faces, sometimes only one face appears and leaves and other times I see a few…like a slideshow as stated in the article. This sort of thing never scared me, I enjoy it and just go with it, I find it very fascinating! So, this article, I found very interesting indeed!

Yes I experience this all the time . Never scares me though .
But I am hearing a voice that just calls nana , when I answer it it never says ant more .
It has started to annoy me as I have tried to connect with it and asked who it was and assured it I wasn’t going to harm it . But no avail
I sometimes on getting into bed , just say to it , if ur not going to answer me , then don’t call me .
Still confused !
