Double Vision: White Shadow is Reaching Out

I see and feel a white wavy shadow on my right side. It tries to communicate with me, touch the right side of my face, change the temperature of my body, and mostly try to possess my body or take me to the spiritual side. This started about three months ago, and now I'm able to see it, though not perfectly. I'm wondering what to make of all of this. Thank you!



Each of us fears the unknown. While this being is a stranger to you in this dimension, it may be well known to you in another. It seems to be a Being of Light rather than Darkness, and is probably here to help you with something you're facing now or in the future.

A specter, shadow or spirit that appears on or behind your right side is usually benign, so there probably isn't reason to worry. The right side is usually the good side, which is why many children were discouraged from being left-handed in the 1950s. In many superstitions, the left is the so-called bad or evil side, while the right is the good or positive side.

Believing this entity is something positive will help you discover its purpose. This is probably a Guide or an Angel, trying to come through to inform you of something in your future or help you change some negative energy or feelings around you now. When you feel it wants to possessyou, it's simply trying hard to communicate what it needs to tell or show you.

Touching you also tells me that this Being doesn't mean you any harm. Creatures who want to possess us don't gently touch the sides of our faces. This Being is trying to get in your face so you'll notice that it's trying to communicate with you.

Since it's been around for three months, off and on, it is patient. If by take you to the spiritual side you mean it's trying to kill you, that won't happen. You can only let evil in by opening the door, and based on your question, this entity hasn't done anything evil.

Now that you see it better and more often, the best way to find out what it wants to tell you is to meditate. Whatever you do in order to get into a calm, quiet state, do it now. Make time at the same time every day to concentrate on this new friend. Protect yourself by surrounding yourself with White Light to keep it from completely invading your person, and find out what it has to give you.

Though it's probably a friend to you, and will come through to you with a positive message or a warning of things to avoid, to be on the safe side, don't let your protection down while you're in that calm, open state. Over time, you'll be able to use its friendship whenever you want to, not just when it wants to communicate with you.



My first thought is that this may be the spirit of someone you know who has recently crossed over. I sense it is longing to become one with you or bring you to the place where it now resides too. However, I don't believe that this entity has the best of intentions, whether it is familiar to you or not.

This could be a friend or a mere acquaintance, but it is probably not someone you would consider a loved one. With more research, you might be able to recognize who it is.

Whether this is the spirit of someone you know from this lifetime or another, or a discarnate entity who has lost its way, it seems that it wants to be as close to you as possible. I recommend you investigate further to discover what this is so you can get rid of it before it begins to influence you in negative or harmful ways.

You might learn who this entity is and what it wants via a guided meditation. To perform this guided meditation, sit in a quiet place and breathe deeply until you feel calm, centered and surrounded by light. Visualize this entity in your mind, and invite it to come in and talk with you.

Ask it directly what it wants. If it confirms that it wants to possess you or take you to the spirit world, respond in a strong, confident way that it cannot have you or your body. Then ask it to leave.

There is also the possibility that you have attracted a negative spirit, and it has attached itself to you. These discarnates or lost spirits select an unwitting person to attach to in an attempt to find a host for their souls. They are afraid to go towards the light and completely cross over, so they try to stay connected to the earth plane via a living human being.

If this turns out to be the case, you will want to seek out a psychic or Spiritualist medium to communicate with this entity and implore it to go towards the light or return to its place of origin. Having a professional by your side will empower you to rid yourself of this entity more quickly and effectively.

These experiences appear to be occurring more frequently as people grow spiritually and become more aware of other dimensions of existence. The good news is that as we develop new awareness, we simultaneously gain new skills for ridding ourselves of spirits who may try to negatively influence us.


Many times in life we hear, "You will always have what you NEED, but not necessarily what you WANT." Your spirit must have needed to experience the feeling of leaving your human body, and the suggestion in the next chapter of Sylvia Brown's book was all it took to get you there.

Even though you hadn't read it yet, your SOUL recognized the title of that chapter as something it had been seeking, and your soul, knowing that you had that reference to read after your experience, got with it and out you went!

While I don't usually recommend her books, Sylvia Brown has a wide reaching and powerful effect on lots of people. A Gemini like you would be able to relate easily to her writing and put it to good use. Synchronicity - you gotta love it!

I like your description of "getting caught." That's exactly what it feels like, isn't it? One minute you're free and hovering above the room, and the next minute, ZAP! back down into your corporeal form you go!

As a little kid, I loved that "feeling of return." With practice, most of the time we can control that event, but sometimes, when our physical ears hear a distracting noise or something else occurs to knock us back into reality, back we go. With practice you will be able to control your return better.

I find it interesting that you were visiting your mother-in-law and not someone in your own genetic family. Evidently, you and your husband got married for reasons that are even deeper than love. His family's interest in "psychic stuff" will nurture your children in such matters and help them to grow into their own abilities.

You'll never have to be concerned that when your daughter visits them, she'll be discouraged from exploring her own psychic life and power. My parents encouraged me to develop my psychic senses in a time when it wasn't nice to even discuss such things in public. Heck, it's STILL not considered a great topic at the dinner table in some families!

Your kids will get to talk about it ALL and ask questions and read and study. This is going to give them such an edge in life! Talk with your husband about how you want to present this to your kiddos, so that you are united in your approach and ready to tell them their experiences are all natural and okay.

A word or two of warning: Geminis often have difficulty staying grounded in REAL LIFE. Don't get so strung out on your ASTRAL life that you neglect what you're doing here on Earth.

You are at the beginning of a long journey to learn where your power really lies. Try to be patient with this process and take your time.
