I Couldn’t Believe My Eyes

This happened to me and my mother around two years ago. It happened in August, 15th to be exact. I remember the date because of a festival that happens in this time of summer. The experience wasn’t exactly creepy, but more baffling than anything.

It was around 6 or 7 pm and we were heading home, there were many people on the street and we don’t live far from the festival place.


My Mom’s Odd Doppleganger Story

My Mom would tell me odd stories in high school and mentioned how she had a very similar look alike she didn’t know about.

Usually it was occasional random guys saying how she was a “real party animal” but she would kindly tell them they had the wrong person because she was usually with my Dad all weekend. However, my Mom told me a story that stuck out the most. Since she didn’t know the girl, I’ll call her Mandy. Mandy was apparently harassing a teacher to the point where the teacher confronted my Mom telling her things like “Following me to my house is VERY inappropriate” and how the teacher would contact the police and such. Of course my Mom was dragged in the office and gave a serious talk about how “following teachers who gave you bad grade isn’t acceptable.”


Doppleganger in my House

This happened to me a little less than a year ago now, but first let me set the stage:

My name is Amber. I am a 29 year old single mother, currently residing in Tennessee. living with me are my now 7 year old son, my elderly disabled mother, and at the time of this occurrence my cousin was sleeping on our couch. Here’s the fun thing about my family: we ALL know that the paranormal is real. My mother was trained as a Shaman, my dad used to do energy work, and my cousin and I are Pagan and were raised, or rather trained, to deal with things that most people refuse to believe exist. Have you seen the show “Supernatural”? Well, one reason we love it in my family is because they tend to get the lore, and the “how to fight this beastie” stuff, pretty close to accurate, and my cousin and I especially love it because it is about as close as mainstream media is likely to ever come to showing how we were raised.

Now, he and I actually didn’t meet until high-school, and didn’t know we were related for a long time. He just became friends with my older brother, and became a part of our family, and THEN we realized we have common blood. small world, right? anyway, we grew up separately, but our families both raised us in much the same way. We each grew up in a relatively stable home, not a massive amount of moving around like the boys on the show, but were taught to study as much lore, on as many creatures and spirits, as we could find. As a result, although we don’t usually drive far to investigate paranormal happenings, when something DOES happen near us, or near our friends, we can usually figure out what it is, if it’s dangerous, and if so how to get it gone, without much trouble.
