On September 7th of this year, just a little less than 2 months ago, my 7 year old son and I lost a very special someone in a sudden and tragic accident. Someone who was so close to us that it changed our daily lives forever. No child should ever lose a parent so young! Since that day, we have been trying to cope with the loss the best we can while trying to keep the same routine as possible. After such a loss it is virtually impossible, but all we can do is try to persevere.
Ever since the accident, needless to say, I have been overly stressed, which might explain some of the new phenomenon I have been experiencing. I have this reoccurring dream- literally I have had it every single night. The dream depicts the last moments of that fateful morning as seen through the eyes of our beloved passenger. That is when I wake up drenched in sweat, usually between 4am-4:45am, it is very punctual. It is so weird because it could be freezing in the house but by the time I wake up I have soaked the sheets with sweat. I usually go to bed around 1am so I know that I am just entering REM sleep when the dream hits me.
I keep getting this feeling that the door to the other side has been opened to let whatever unfinished business through to me so that I might be able to understand our special someone’s message. This dream is so disturbing and real. Before I wake up the last thing I hear is, “help me.”
It is not that I’m scared of a ghost. I would not be scared of any ghost unless it could physically harm someone I love or me. Just being next to a ghost does not scare me. I have heard these stories about how some ghosts caused physical harm to people. The movie An American Haunting was supposedly a true story about a ghost that actually caused a death. Obviously I don’t think this is the case in my situation, but I feel I am being contacted through my dreams. How can I have the same dream and conclusion to that dream every night? What does it mean? I am not scared of what has been happening, but I’m curious. Has anyone ever had an experience with a medium, or psychic? What was your experience? Do you think this reoccurring dream is just my brain’s way of dealing with the sudden tragic event, or it just may be that a door to the spiritual world has been opened and a special someone on the other side really wants me to help them say something to the little boy they never got to say goodbye to. How long could this disturbing dream reoccur for? Every night…forever..?
