Have you ever been in the dark and see something that looks like a person or maybe a ghost?

When I was a little girl, I vividly remember waking up and seeing a woman sitting in this little rocking chair I had in my room. The hall light was on, filtering into my partially cracked door, giving the illusion there was someone there. My heart felt like it was in my throat and I was so frightened I couldn’t scream.

Suddenly, I found some courage and dashed to the light and flicked it on. What I found was a lump of clothes stacked up on the chair.

So in the spirit of my optical illusion story, here are pics of other people who almost had a heart attack from the same thing.

These would certainly give me a literal heart attack!

Okay, not a literal one, but a spiritual one.
