Anita G's Experience

Experience description:   

I was dreaming that I was living in a farm in a small country community, and my dream seemed like it went on forever. People were running from everywhere with their kids, animals and hoses, screaming GET OUT , GET OUT, RUN FOR YOUR LIFE . I remember in my dream feeling calm at first and watching these people trying to make sense of what was going on. Then I was standing next to this farmer with a flannel shirt, jeans and an acubra hat, hosing crazy on his house and lawn, And then I felt panicky. This man seemed significant in my dream, but in real life I don't know him. I remember I was then hosing and screaming out for other people to run and get in their cars and the I saw sheep on fire running from the bush with people and kids alongside them. The panic in these peoples faces and the screams I heard in my dream, still haunt me now in this waking moment, I feel ill. I can see these peoples faces for some reason and the shear panic in their faces, it was horrible. Then I was desperately trying to save this significant farmers house with the hose and then this TV reporter, who I can only refer to as Karl, a reporter here in Australia on channel 9, was reporting on this fire and trying to warn people to get out, it was then I looked over my shoulder and I saw this horrendous, what seemed like flames hitting the sky, dark clouds of smoke and still these sheep on fire and kangaroos and other Australian animals, snakes and people just running for there lives and then the fire caught up to me, I screamed as I could feel the heat on my body and then I woke up.

When I woke up I couldn't breath and my heart was beating rapidly, I was so terrified. I went downstairs to have a coffee and then I told my husband about my dream, then phoned my daughter and later my sisters. I have lots of dreams and have had many weird experiences and premonitions in my life, but this one absolutely blows me away. Because only less than 3 days ago, everything in my dream came true, and Victoria caught on fire, with exactly everything that happened in my dream.

I have travelled through these places last year. So I know exactly what the towns look like, and I can honestly say now in my dream I feel it was where I was. It was absolutely horrible.

My fathers sister lives in one of the towns that was completely demolished, but I have never met her and I don't really have a connection with her. As does her daughter, she lives not far from the fire affected communities.

I had to tell someone about this dream as I am so affected by this experience, I am so heartbroken for all these people that died, but I feel that, the night I dreamt of what happened is what they would have actually gone through and I feel devastated. I could not tell any authorities, they would of thought I was a loony. I am not but right now I feel crushed, heartbroken and so sadddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddd, for all those people. When I woke up, I was scratching our wall at the top of our bed screaming my husband said, I just don't normally do that.
