Entities Imitating the Living

Have you ever heard your loved ones calling your name only to find out they never did? I'm going to raise this question ever further! Have you ever had a full conversation with what you thought were your loved ones when in reality it was nothing?!

This phenomenon is more common than you might expect, therefore there are several theories on what it could be. Theories range from the psychological (sleep deprivation, hypogognic state, mental disorders) to paranormal. However, if we feel as if psychological factors do not apply to our situation and if there are other unexplained phenomena occurring as well, we search further and end up with paranormal theories. From spirits to doppelgangers, there are numerous paranormal explanations for such phenomenon. 

Now, to make your search easier, here are few paranormal theories on what this phenomena could be:

This is the most common theory. It seems that spirits sometimes just crave a little attention so they will imitate the living in order to get it. Maybe we didn't know them when they were alive and they don't want to scare us with an unfamiliar voice so they chose to sound like someone we like. They just want you to turn around and notice them. Some maybe need help with crossing over as well. 

There are some theories which state that the entity is pretending to be somebody else in order to hide its true identity. The entity will act as a loved one to get attention and gain trust of a person. However, their behavior might be more of a mocking nature rather than just being called once. So, they sound like your loved ones but they don't necessarily act like them. These entities are usually mischievous spirits, but they could also be joker spirits or, very rarely, demons. It all depends on the intensity and gut feeling. 

Another theory centers on bilocation or the ability of being at two different locations at the same time. The signs of bilocation include two different people encountering the same living person at the same time in a different place. Related to bilocation, there is also multilocation. Multilocation considers the reports of the same living person being at multiple different locations at the same time. 

Some believe that what we're hearing is actually a replica of a living person or, as sometimes refered to as a doppelganger. Doppelganger is most likely to appear as an apparition of ourselves and, very rarely, as an apparition of other living people. However, if one does encounter a doppelganger of somebody else, the person in question should be very close to its replica. Moreover, it is believed that the double always stays close to its counterpart.

It is considered that hauntings are sometimes gatherings of energy. What if these gatherings aren't only reserved for the other side? Some theorize that the living could create these energy gatherings as well. This occurs if the sustained energy is being produced over a longer period of time in a certain location which then creates a low form of intelligence of its own. This type of haunting is sometimes referred to as an elemental haunting. In case of an elemental haunting, familiar sounds and visuals specific for a certain environment will occur.  Therefore, sometimes we might be the ones creating our own haunting.


These types of situations can be confusing and very strange. Trust me, you are not alone. I have had several experiences with the mentioned phenomenon and written about it.

"THE GIGGLING" - that time a friend heard me playing inside of an apartment when nobody was home. 
"THE CONVERSATION" - that time I has a conversation with my sister only to find she was never really there.


  1. Science would say these are mental disorders, but what about the ones they can't explain? People getting hit on the head and being able to speak a different language or play an instrument they have never touched? Science offers a lot of explanations on what they think they know but don't even bother to try with what people can prove.
