Optical illusion or ghosts?

    Lately I've been experiencing movement out of the corner of my eyes, every time I'm thinking it's a person walking by, but when I turn my head to look, there's no one there.
    The last experience happened only today, the image was of a male adult wearing white top, black trousers, and I think long hair.

    If it's an illusion, my question would be why is my mind/eyes playing tricks on me? The person I described above looks like no one (didn't see the face) nor do I know anyone with long hair.

    If it's a ghost, the idea is kinda scary to think that I am able to see ghosts on occasion walking about.

    Your thoughts?

    Maybe a spirit trying to contact or connect with you? "Something" from the other side?

    Have you been getting enough sleep? Perhaps, your mind is in that half-sleep state trying to go to bed, and you're having a real life dream?

    Four possible reasons:

    -a random ghost or ghosts

    -the spirit of a departed loved one seeking your attention

    -a psychological manifestation of the above

    -simple transitory peripheral hallucinations

    I would tend to suspect the last, although I will admit that this leaves certain incidents in my own past experience without sufficient explanation.

    I see little bugs flying around from the corners of my eyes sometimes. I think i've just been staring at the computer too long.

    I would say just illusions, eyes can play up sometimes. If not, get more sleep lol.

    I'm definately not getting enough sleep - thanks to my dear baby.
    I didn't realize that lack of sleep does that to people. Strange.

    Thanks Bex, I'll take a look at the sites.
    Ugh.. that website will give me nightmares..

    On a exercise I did which we were sleep deprived for 2 weeks I started to see clowns popping out of the trees lol. It can get pretty bad at times, so make sure you try and catch up on sleep when you can.
