I have something odd that is happening daily that started a few years back and has become stronger over time. And I wanted to share to see if others here maybe also see the same things. And what I see are faces everywhere that appear from abstract or random designs or textures. I see faces in the design of a Persian rug, or in the grain of a wood door or furniture, or in travertine floor tiles. The skill reminds me of those paintings you'd see at the mall maybe 20 years ago where it looks like a collection of dots but if you stare long enough without blinking you could make out an image inside the chaos of the dots.
My mind has improved being able to look at abstract designs to where I can immediately pull out faces. And those faces are quite often evil or threatening looking. But other times it may be a person's happy or angelic image. As an example, there is a spot in my shower tile that looks like the face of Jesus with a crown of thorns. Some of these faces pop out as a one-time thing that my mind can't repeat later while with others I can always see those faces every time I walk by.
In addition to having faces appear to me, I also have numbers appear to me the same way. And I seem to most often see the number 4. The numbers will show up from etches in floor tile or from cracks.
Does anyone have an idea why I see these things and what possible meaning I should draw from them? I’m also curious if anyone else has had similar experiences?
