Doppelgangers & mythology of spirit doubles

10 posts in this topic

The mythology of spirit doubles can be traced back thousands of years and was present in many cultures of the past, holding a prominent place in ancient legends, stories, artworks, and in books by various authors. Perhaps the most well-known reference to spirit doubles or 'alter egos' is the doppelganger, a word still used today to refer to a person that is physically or behaviourally similar to another person.

I have yet to see my doppelganger, however I used to be a waitress and currently work at a motel and have had strangers tell me I look exactly like so & so from back home and wonder if I'm related to that person- so far the answer has been no. It would be neat to run into someone who could possible pass off as a 'twin'...

A person who looks like you is not a double or doppleganger. A doppleganger is a living apparition of the actual you that often will fade or suddenly disappear from sight. I've had mine seen mulitiple times a few years back when I was having serious health issues and was ill for a very long time. Fatigue and illness often accompany the sighting of someone's doppleganger. It's like they're near death but not quite.

Once you do, you will become the ONE! Or is that just for multi universe you?

I saw my brothers doppelganger or whatever you call it a few years back. At the time my brother was at a friends house and planned to walk home. I was sitting in the lounge and I looked out the window and then I saw him walk up the street to the door and I heard a knock. I went to go let him in and he wasn't there. I sat down in the lounge again thinking I was crazy. I looked out the window and there he was again walked up the street to the door, did the same knock and this time he called out my name. I went to open the door and it was my brother.
