You are on the right track.
The thing to keep in mind is that these sort of occurrences are drawn to people who make room for them in their lives on some level.
There almost certainly is some level of implicit invitation.
For example the white feather and how you feel about it may have started the while thing.
Lets call these particular effects "shadow people".
They would typically imitate the dead to get the implicit permission.
In all these situations you need to let the effects know who is boss (you are) for two reasons.
1) you are almost certainly giving them a foothold.
So stop doing that. (please report on any psychological or emotional weakness you may have which is giving the implicit invitation).
2) And as you are already doing, deny permission.
How you do it matters.
Firm and polite yes...definitely not from a point of weakness, but not from a point of bravado or fear or you will just feed it.
3) Don't name it...even to deny it permission..
As naming gives it more substance.
(the Christian/occultist thing of getting its name just makes things worse usually...though the "authority thing" sometimes accidentally works).
Here is the "secret".
Humans came first.
All this stuff evolved from us...all of it..including "god", "the devil", "demons","shadows", "faeries" all of it.
Just saying "to yourself":
"Humans came first".
Should be very helpful.
Not confrontationally....but to remind yourself...and the effects will notice you are one of the small handful of humans ever to live who knows this
and your relationship with the "unseen" will change forever....
Unless you are giving implicit permission...hanging on to a departed loved one for example.
This is my initial advice.
