I would be happy to help you. So this person you could see was not in a dream? Not sure as to what your beliefs are, but there are things called familiar spirits. It is a bad spirit that comes off as "innocent" often times takes the form of a relative or closed love one. Or someone who has had a tragic death in a certain home. So depending on what has recently taken place. No death or loss of loved ones? Perhaps you purchased an "object" of any sort from a yard sale or auction, Familiar spirits can attack themselves to objects. This is why you hear a lot about this on tv shows, documentaries and movies. If you have anymore questions please feel free to ask.
