Others

Wasn't sure where to put this so here it is...

My son told me this morning, quite matter of fact, that he has an 'other Mommy'.
I asked what he meant and he said his other Mommy that he sees beside his bed when he wakes up from a dream.
I asked what this other Mommy looks like and he said she looks like me but has wings. He said they were small wings.
I then asked him where I was when his other Mommy was there. He said I was in my bed asleep.
I asked why I can't see her too. He laughed and said because I was 'some other place when she was there'.
I asked where she was when she wasn't there...'some other place'.
I asked where this other place was. He said he didn't know...maybe Heaven.
I asked if this other scared him when he awoke at night to see her standing by his bed. He said no...that she was the other me...his other Mommy. He said we were each other's Other.

My son is 6.

This brings me to the subject of doppelgangers. Have you seen one or has anyone seen yours?

When I was a kid, I practiced astral projection. I found that I would do it spontaneously and that my sleep paralysis attacks would grow more severe and frequent so I gave up doing it. But I recall from my studies that people who have seen another's astral 'other' note a shimmering light coil extending out of the back. I wonder if my son is seeing my double and interpreting this light as wings? I'm also wandering why I would be completely unaware of nightly wandering. Or is my son seeing my doppelganger in the traditional sense...as that is long rumored to portend the owner's death. I did die once and was brought back. I sometimes wonder if I came back whole.

This isn't the first time someone has reported seeing my other. In fact, two people saw it at once.

I've been very fascinated by doppelgangers, curious if there is a real unseen connection...I can be very empathic when I want to be, I'd love to meet a pair in real life upfront, talk with them and have all my senses wide open...

This link shows over 20 pair of doppelgangers from different parts of the world, some so identical in many details...

I have never seen a doppelganger. But when I was visited by the so called shadow man, he first looked like my father, standing in the doorway.

I've seen doubles living out in the world. I've heard everyone has at least one. But here I am referring, more or less, to a spectral other self.

No. My grandmother died the next day so I doubt seeing him is a blessing

That depends on how you look at it or what you believe. Some people believe that loved ones who have already passed will appears days sometimes months before and wait to ferry the dying across. Their presence can often be readily perceived by the dying and this comforts them, soothes their fears and helps them to let go.

I don't know if you read my topic on the AH about this creature. I never heard about him. Being a coward, I tried not to read or watch something about spirits or ghosts. When I saw him, I thought it was a positive experience cause he seemed nice. Even the death of my grandmother did not ring a bell. Much later I accidentally found an information and description about the similar case. I was shocked. People claim that this very shadow man comes if somebody is very sick or going to die. However I do not think he was the reason of grandmother's death, he just came because it was his"job"? A guy from the AH told me he had the same experience when his father died. This shadow man touched him and thus woke him up. He saw him clearly and in a few hours he got a call from his sister: his father passed away

I have been present at many deaths (including my own) and in every one...someone was there waiting for the dying. Now, I will often see deceased loved ones in my dreams and their presence is altogether different from the dream content. Sometimes their appearance in a dream precedes the death of someone and sometimes they are just there.

When someone is dying, its easy to see that they are seeing and talking to someone. People might say this is a just a hallucination brought on by lack of oxygen to the brain and that perhaps having such hallucinations is a function of our brains to ease our dying. Having had my own experience while clinically dead, I am going believe what I know, rather than speculate, to be true.

"We need to do much larger-scale studies, but the possibility is certainly there" to suggest that consciousness, or the soul, keeps thinking and reasoning even if a person's heart has stopped, he is not breathing and his brain activity is nil, Parnia said."
"The patients also reported seeing a bright light, entering another realm and communicating with dead relatives."

Study: Brains Function in Clinically Dead

YES, absolutely.

I think I died a lot. This is not my first life. I can't explain my memories of it, I just know it's scary only for a second and then you're free...

No, but I recalled many times floating down the stairs and the cat would be growling at something but I never paid it any attention.
Later when I got older say in my middle teens my mother would talk about how the house we lived in she believed was haunted. She said several times she would be watching TV at night and suddenly the hair on the cat would raise up and it would stare at the stairs, the cats eyes following something. It would growl as well.
I figure it was me.

I love this photo series. How surreal is it that, out there, you have an almost identical copy image-wise? I wonder how similar they are in personality, or how different.

What's a good example of a paranormal type doppelganger?...

A paranormal one will appear in places and or will be seen doing things the person might ordinarily do, but will act strangely otherwise and then mysteriously vanish.
I have wondered if perhaps these are cases of the individual Astral projecting himself...subconsciously to the degree that they can be seen an interacted with....

That would be the gist of this thread...the contemplation that perhaps the 'others' might be astral projection.

Interesting in my own experiences in traveling sometimes I am not seen by anyone but sometimes a few or one can see me...
