Changing Faces


Three years ago now I met a man with whom I felt a strong spiritual connection ~ it almost felt as we had known each other before in a past life.

After months of knowing each other we went on a holiday to France together, and what happened on one of the nights there will always stay with me.

It was a warm evening and we had decided to stay indoors. We were both sitting on the floor facing each other, talking about different things. We had lit candles, which created a cozy atmosphere, and we had some incense burning.

Suddenly, as we were speaking, something strange happened; my friend's face changed into another face! At this very moment, we both stopped talking and reacted at the same time ~ his face was changing from one face to another!

In a total shock I was looking at my friend's face without being able to talk ~ feelings of fear and astonishment were running through me. After a moment it was all getting too much, so I shook my head and looked away; I then looked at my friend again and he had his own face back.

Now, what makes this experience even more interesting; as I saw my friend's face change HE WAS SEEING MY FACE CHANGE! It happened exactly at the same time, and we both were in deep shock about it.

We then decided to look at each other again, and the faces started to appear on our faces once again! We stared at each other until it felt too much to bare, and we repeated this a few times.

To go into detail about the faces;

All the faces which appeared on my friend's face were different from each other, but they were all male and I would say Indian (?) descent. They were also around the same age (older men).

My friend described the faces he saw on my face, to be all female and also Indian (?) descent. The faces weren't all the same age, but from younger to older.

Have any of you had any similar experiences, or know about anything like this?

I've been trying to find some answers, and I have been told Stuart Wilde has once talked about a similar experience.

I feel I need to know more. And I would so appreciate it if any of you could share your knowledge and/or suggestions with me!

My only explanation so far is, that perhaps my strong spiritual connection to my friend was really due to a past life (lives) together ~ perhaps the faces appearing on us were the faces of our past incarnations? Or were they simply faces of spirits?

Why does an experience like this happen to someone? Is there any reason for it? I asked these same two questions when I experienced my first out-of-body experience ~ "why, why me..."

Let me also add;

Drugs or any other kind of narcotics were NOT involved in this experience ~ including alcohol! Also, I have had many unexplainable spiritual experiences in my life, so this one is not the only one ~ or the first one.

i happened upon this thread, because I was looking up how come I always S.E.E. The +.i.M.€. Change as I am looking at it... I S€.€. A.N.G.€.L.#.s:11,:22,:33,:44,:55, then, the minute becomes the next one...
I just wanted to know what it meant as a spiritual thing? I feel i.+. Means C.H.A.N.G.€. Will suddenly come about, since I have decided to write to all of the N.S.A. Agency's... I am no longer in fear, since it is the only thing ~G.0.D.~ ever asked of me! I have been in customer service jobs for years, touching lives momentarily & have R.€.A.D., 00s of 000s of S.0.U.L.S... All of my bosses let me! So, I just do not make mistakes! Last week, my boyfriend walked over to tell me something loving. When I looked at him, he became younger & I knew this is how he will look in H.€.A.V.€.N... I cry everyday at some point because We have been together for 15 years & I am not ready to say goodbyes... I was tripping on it too much & never appreciated the veracity of it. Like everyone else I questioned, instead of accepting & just wish I could go back to that moment & tell him. I still have not told him. He was there for Israel, & now he knows my G.i.F.+ for reals... It came from multiple N.D.€.s... I S.A.W. Israel attacked by Hummas (how I S.€.€. I.+.)...Gov Agency's don't want to know, as I have called before other world events. There will be an earthquake in California & 1,289,000 S.H.A.L.+. P.A.S.S. & gas in New York & 2,500,000 S.H.A.L.+. P.A.S.S. I can not call, until I am given the date & time, like the Israel attack. My boyfriend was with me, 3 days before & can be a character witness & the upstairs neighbor recorded me, yelling at them to let me get sleep, because Israel would be attacked & all the details, except for, in the sky things. I could not tell what I was looking at from underneath, so I concentrated on the tanks through the walls, the motorbikes with 2, covered head to toe with guns, the bombs in the sky like fireworks, the hostages & the V.0.i.C.€. Saying & a 3rd of the U.S.A.s 9-11-2001 shalt pass. Upstairs, supposedly mentally ill person keeps drilling & hammering into the ceiling, day & night. I never get more than 3-4 hours sleep at a time, so I am sleep deprived constantly! I experienced S.H.€.V.A., when it happened, because I asked ~G.0.D.~ what happened to me. I was shaking so bad with the remote viewing into Gaza, that I ended up on the kitchen floor, shaking uncontrollably. I was shown the movie, 'Bee Season' with Richard Gere. I experienced something similar to the daughter in the hotel room. ~G.0.D.~ told me, a chance 5 weeks in, then 5 months to stop, or 5 years! It is my +.i.M.€. Now, I am told, to fulfill my
D.€.S.+.i.N.Y.! I was chosen to help the N.S.A. ~G.0.D.~ gave me the Super Bowl scores & the plays of the game & that the score would be in the 1/4s thing. I was told to bet $1,000 on it. I said no. Always argued, now no more! I only asked for the score, then the V.0.i.C.€. That S.P.€.A.K.S. In my H.€.A.R.+. Told me the rest. If the score was right, then that would mean I would be in front of the N.S.A.! So, I N.0.W. K.N0.W., I will fulfill my D.€.S.+.i.N.¥., & here it is... I do so apologize for, this is off topic. However, it is like my step out on F.A.i.+.H.! To stop hiding & TELL my +.R.U.+.H., my W.H.0.L.€. +.R.U.+.H. & NOTHING BUT, SO H.€.L.P. Me, my G.0.D. & +.H.A.N.K. ¥.0.U. 4 my G.i.F.+.! May I become the D.i.A.M.0.N.D. 0.V. L.i.G.H.+.! 4 TO BE A GOOD, FAITHFUL, KIND, OBEDIENT, WILLING SERVANT, FINALLY, JUST FOR ONCE...

I had a similar experience. I was having sex with my girlfriend. She was sitting on top of me during the act while I was lying down, I saw a different lady's face atop me. The face looked very different from the person I know. After a short moment the face changed to my girlfriend again and she later sort of passed out or became unresponsive. At that moment, I panicked and shook her vigorously for some time before she came over. After that she began to cry for no reason and told me not to leave her sight. It was very scary. But nothing bad happened. We both were ok.

I woke up. Not like from sleeping, or maybe. I had an exact similar experience. Sitting with a friend from school, we were talking about when we were young. At ones particular moment, she said something. It sparked My attention. I asked her to stand up, as we were sitting down. I said, let me look at you. At THAT MOMENT, SHE BEGAN TO CHANGE. OLD, YOUNG, TALL, SHORT, MAN, WOMAN, BLACK, WHITE, kind of like a Michael Jackson video where he morphs, but this was WAY FREAKIER. AS I looked at her, she said, " your changing". I was astonished! It turned out that she was a girlfriend from a previous life. I know how we died, why we came back, people, places, times, and events. Its ALL TRUE BEING CONFIRMED. Bottom line, we get to come back OVER AND OVER, and it's in the Bloodline. Want to know more,? Can you tell me more,? I need more information on either end. Please help me! Any info is greatly appreciated.

So I had a similar experience. But I was out in my camper with my collie. About 3 years ago, wind an rain blowing. Just chillin with a hot chocolate and reading a book. And I noticed my nose growing! I could see it, it was massive like old and warty one. I'm not sure if the rest of my face had changed. But what really freaked me is my collie was now growling straight at me. He has never done that and hasn't since that day. But he was unsettled by it. It didn't last long. About 20 seconds but. It was such a strange feeling. I wasn't scared but I was conscious of something being there for a bit

Any one else experienced this?

This happened to me last night. I was visiting my girlfriend who I haven't seen since Covid began in 2019. We were talking, having a good time and when I turned to look at her, it was a different person. I just watched her in amazement as I was trying to figure out if this is who she looked like in her younger days. Then, her face changed again, from her hair style and her nose. I have never experienced anything like this before. I didn't even mention it to her and just carried on as if nothing happened. Don't understand it but enjoyed it.

This happened to me in almost the exact same way that was initially described by the creator of this thread.

Id recently started a relationship with a girl and we both agreed that we felt like we had known each other before. One summers afternoon we were sitting in a room together, having a deep and meaningful conversation as we tended to do. While looking at my girlfriends face, it began to change right in front of my eyes. It was definitely a human face, but I can only describe it as female, with primitive features, not like a modern Homo Sapien face. I couldn't believe what I was seeing and thought I must be tired. But a split second before I saw the face, I had noticed a look of suprise/shock/anxiety on my gf's face. Once my girlfriends face had returned to normal, I told her what I had just seen. She then told me that the exact same thing had happened to my face, but she described seeing a black man with a big beard (I'm mixed race with light skin and had light stubble at the time) We kind of laughed it off at the time, but it's bugged me enough to come looking for answers or if other people had experienced the same thing. Have no idea what it was tbh, but can't help think it was some kind of remnant of previous lives lived, or possibly something ancestral. Of course I understand the possible explanations given in regards to tricks of the mind, it's just that I think the chances of two different people experiencing that at the same time must be pretty unlikely? Either way, I'm glad it happened and I still share a deep connection to the person I experienced this with to this day.

This same exact thing happened to me during an awakening 1.5 years ago. I was speaking with a friend and as he told his story I could see who he was speaking of, on his face and body.
I finally stopped him and asked him if the person he spoke of looked like this (and explained) and each time he said it was his uncle or dad or some other family member. Later he pulled out photos and showed me all these people. Mirror image. He is Crow. Indigenous.
I think about it every day to this day.

Had a strange thing happen last night, my husband and I had friends over for dinner, while the men were chatting in the kitchen his wife and I were in the lounge chatting about our children and the problems we are having around our grandchildren, while I turned away to pick up my cup and then turned to continue our conversation, I noticed her face was different 😬it was like looking at a different person, her hair was the same but her face was a lot fuller and her eyes were different her face was a lot fuller and older. I was talking to her and she was talking back to me, but for a few minutes I couldn't believe what I was seeing, then She was back to herself. At the time I was a bit taken back and didn't mention it to her. Have never experienced anything like this before, has anyone else had this happen to me.

While in theory I second -o0I0o-'s input and third Frodork's input, I have to say that I have experienced this phenomenon myself and while I understand the optical illusions that can in fact explain a lot of these experiences, it simply cannot explain them all. I've seen my face change from (at the time a 27-year-old white male) to an elderly woman, a Paul Bunyon-looking fella with a giant beard, a Native American, African American and so forth. I was under no influence of alcohol or drugs of any sort. While yes, I was surrounded in low lighting, there's no way these distinct face shapes and ethnicity switches could simply be defined by some optical illusion.

I second Frodork's input.

I have had countless multi-dimensional / higher-level experiences in my lifetime. You have to realize that there are scientific explanations for many things as well. These which can be explained scientifically as natural phenomena are frequently attributed to supernatural phenomena.

It is our duty really to avoid pseudo-scientific attributions. Another scenario that is frequently mistaken is a phenomenon called "after image" and people believe they are seeing a person's aura. I was attending a class and the instructor was wearing a green overcoat. Behind her was a blackboard. Many people pointed out how she had this vibrant purple aura. If you held that coat up by itself and waved it in front of that blackboard the same purple "aura" would appear. It was the result of the coat's color in front of the blackboard not her aura.

There is also something known as pareidolia where you see images in textures like a face in the texture of a stucco wall, the man in the moon or faces in clouds. People all over the world have mistaken this for apparitions of Jesus, Mary or dead family members.

You owe it to yourself if not everyone to educate yourself so you can decipher the actual paranormal from normal. When you are found to be grossly mistaken it damages the credibility of legitimate experiences.

I have had faces completely change to another person 3 times in my life. I am 67 years old. It is a different experience, to say the least. I feel it is very spiritual.

i haven't read through all of these comments, so what I am about to say should not be taken as applicable to all these experiences, but at least for yossu42's experience, I may have an explanation.

This is going to sound odd, but there actually is an optical illusion that can make it look like a face is morphing into something else. Not only that, but it is easiest to replicate in low light environments, candle light in particular as the flickering helps the effect. Its literally called "the strange face illusion" and was formally discovered in 2010.

Here is how the optical illusion works. Have you ever heard a constant tone or a repetitive sound so long that your brain tunes it out and you stop noticing it? Or have you ever become so used to a smell you can't pick it out any more? Or, have you ever stared at your ceiling while trying to sleep, only to have small details of your vision begin to fade out? Our brains are designed to filter out repetitive back ground stimulation, and the same thing can happen with a face. If you stare at a face long enough, especially in a low light environment, your brain can start to filter information about it out, causing it to look deformed.

You can try it youself right now in fact. Go into a dimly lit room with a mirror, a bathroom with a night light will do, but candles work best, then stare at your own face in the mirror. As you stare, it is best to try not to move, or to look at anything else, as that will help to refresh your brain and ruin the effect. The effect usually takes about 10 minutes to start working, but once it does it is quite dramatic. I have personally experienced this myself, and can confirm it works.

With all this said, I'm not trying to rain on anyones parades, I have had my own experiences that I would deem supernatural, so I know weird things really can happen out there, but in this one particular case, this really sounds like a phenomenon with an understood scientific explination.

The boy I'm dating came to visit me. Like normal he sat across me, then after a while I looked at him. And in a split second. His face changed in to that of an older men. Than I said to myself, I'm I tripping? Or he is just tired, and I'm imagining thing. I told myself in my head, if he get old he is still going to look good. I wanted to tell him what I saw. But I didn't because maybe I'm tripping or imagining things. And what will he say. I let it go and forgot about it. But it just popped back in to my head. And I start doing research about what it can be. And found this forum, with people who had the same experience's so maybe. I was not imagining things. I also dreamed about events that where going to happen involving this person and me.

What I think it is, is that I'm Clairvoyance. Because if you are clairvoyance. Its possible that you can see faces change, or predict things that are going to happen etc. So maybe everyone here is experiencing clairvoyance abilities.

I am happy to have found these comments of people who have seen this happen as well. I had a very scary experience with a man who I was briefly involved with, that turned out to be a fraud. He pretended to be someone he was not and I fell for it, however during the time I fell for it, scary things happened that I still cannot seem to make any sense of. One of those things is that his face morphed as we were staring at each other during an intimate moment. It became blurry and his eyes seemed to become huge blank sockets or something while the rest of the face melted and blurred into the rest. Its so hard to explain, he just froze midair above me staring at me as it happened and I was so scared that I looked away after about 4 seconds of watching it morph. When I looked back again it was normal but he was still frozen staring at me. This same man did things like sleeptalk in my ear in what sounded like a demon voice, whispering and muttering in what sounded like Latin? But that part could have been him messing with me, he would do the strangest pranks on me and carry out the scariest behaviors. I know what I saw with his face changing though, and it made no sense. He is a low level being and not magical, I certainly get a very negative energy from him. Similar to the evil that another commenter mentioned in how the man she dated was empty and had changing faces in photos. This man had the same phenomena in his photos as well, and I thought it was because he has such a poor sense of self and is always changing who he is. In a way I guess he is a shape shifter. Being with him was like experiencing an evil I never want to experience again. I wish I could say his whole name to warn anyone reading this to stay far away from him.

I can provide you with some insight regarding your experience as mine is identical to your one. My email is available on my profile.

this can be seeing someones soul, or sensing their true self or a strong part of them relevant at that moment to both you and them- that spirit is allowing you to see. In my opinion you really have to consider the circumstances
(person involved, emotional state of individual, state of yourself and relationship to the person) and guide with intuition to figure it out given that its safe to assume you have intuitive abilities in the first place- so trust them.

My friends face turned into a black and white version of an old woman who was grimacing in pain. I feel I saw the condition and pain existing in her spirit. Why I saw it, I don't know can only speculate that it was for me to understand her better. Understand her pain, and continue to be her friend as it was our first meet up post a friendship fall out. It was a flash a split second. First and last time I have ever witnessed.

Clipping errors associated with holographic projections of the universal mind

Could be one way of looking at it

Another could be the mutual destabilization of your sense of self enabling sensory illusions to occur

That could even be the cause

I just had this happen! I was sitting with a friend talking and his facial features started changing. He changed into 3 or 4 different people. I am unsure what this is called. Anyone know?

I have seen a woman's face in the face of now two different women when I looked at them in a certain situation. Now one would probably say I might have another on my mind when I was with these two individuals, but the woman's face in which I saw, is not someone I have known in this physical life, I'm sure of this... At the same time, the feelings that hit me were overwhelming and full of elation and joy, a warmth I've not felt from anyone or anything before. When I first saw it in the first woman it was a close an intimate moment, not sexual though. I was sitting face to face and had her head in my hands and I shiat you not, the woman sitting in front of me transformed before my eyes. Still had same color eyes and hair, but the facial structure changed. The same thing happened with the second woman. Has anyone ever experienced something like this or knows what it could mean?

I have experience this before and I'm looking for answers as my story is similar to like yours I've known this man for about 3 years and his face changes a lot to be honest it's very scary it feels like my mind is being played with and Everytime this happen my mouth is glued shut and a great amount of fear shallows me away the feeling will last for about 5 to 8mins and when I snap back into reality things feel so awkward between us but he doesn't see anything wrong with this picture he actually calls me crazy I feel like he has voodoo on me some time or that he really have bad mental health issues that he needs help with but maybe be afraid to admit to I swear it reminds me of the movie split

I was with my friend and she was walking towards me and all of The sudden I felt this wave of confusion and her face was mine, it was my face on her body. Then I saw my friend again, and then it was back to my face on her. Then it finally switched back, and nothing like that has happened since. What is this? Was I hallucinating?

Nothing prepared me for this though while we where talking I slowly seen her face change into my aunties face who is still alive today that was weird even she couldn't give me an explanation for this so I am very keen to know why this happens and what does this mean?

Hi Yossu42,

Just had a similar experience and would like to maybe see if you have any clue on what this all means? Is there any way I can private message you?

I too have experienced this. I looked in the mirror and saw myself change 8 times in appearance. Really cool. Last night we were at friends, and the gentleman was standing infront of me, his face did the same thing 3 times.
Has anyone told you anything about this?

You may find it interesting to do the experience facing a mirror, in a darkened room, eyelids relaxed and half-lidded. What do you see happen to your own face?
Stephanie (guest)

So this just happened. I was talking to my friend and her face automatically changed and looked like an older version of herself but at the same time looked nothing like her and I kept telling her your face is different! It was so strange to me. Is there any reasoning behind this!?
