I don't meditate because I get scared of what I see.
Whenever I close my eyes, relax, and focus on my breathing, I usually end up seeing parts of a face and eyes (while my eyes are closed). The eyes/face flicker or move and I'm pretty sure its a man. I always end up getting freaked and force my eyes open,
I was wondering if anyone has similar experience or knowledge that could help me because I am sure I am not imagining it/going crazy(which is what I thought at one stage). Thank you for taking the time to read this!

Just explore it more. Or not, I mean... actually, I didn't. (^_~) I just shut it down and pursued less anxiety-inducing methods of magical talent development. When I went back to the scary things, they weren't there anymore. I guess they got bored of waiting for me to go back.

The whole point of meditation is to allow the subconscious to "take over" from the conscious.
The conscious Mind sees and hears what you want to see and hear. The subconscious sees and hears everything! Everything you have touched, everything you smell. Every action you have ever taken is registered by the subconscious. So, yes, you are bound to see, sometimes, faces that your subconscious has seen, but that you never noticed. It can sometimes be quite scary! But don't stop meditating because of these "visions".In meditation there is a vast amount of knowledge that you can "tap into". Don't be afraid! Magic awaits you!
Try not to let the face you keep seeing scare you off from meditation. It could be the memory of someone, could be something that your subconscious is trying to bring to the surface. Most likely y9ou would need to meditate to discover why you are seeing it. Perhaps try a different form of meditation if it persists and is bothersome? Best of luck :)
I see those faces and eyes also when I start to meditate. They soon disappear and then the colours, stars, swirls begin. I've sat on a park bench with two women and listened to their conversation, it was a sunny warm day - only to realize I'm still sitting on my couch! I've watched a firey orange ball come floating towards me and slowly this ball turned into an eye, scales formed (in slow motion)around the eye until there was a large dragon sitting there watching me. I wasn't afraid at all more in awe of what was happening. I find if I'm having trouble trying to figure something out - work related or a project- if I meditate the answer just seems to appear.
