Experience description:      

I WAS VERY TIRED AS I WAS BREAST FEEDING MY 2 MONTH OLD BABY AND HAD MY 11 YEAR OLD IN BED WITH ME ALSO AS HE FEELS LEFT OUT AND WANTED TO SLEEP IN THE BABY'S ROOM WITH ME. I HAVE A BED IN THE NURSERY. 

I FEEL ASLEEP FEEDING MY BABY AND THEN I REALIZED I WAS LOOKING DOWN ON MY BED WHERE I COULD SEE US I WAS FLOATING ON MY BACK IN THE TOP CORNER OF THE ROOM. I PANICKED BECAUSE I HAVE HEARD OF THIS STUFF BUT NOT REALLY UNDERSTOOD IT.  ALL I WANTED TO DO WAS GO BACK AND WAKE UP BUT INSTEAD GLIDED THROUGH SOME STREET REALLY FAST IT WAS ALL IN COLOR I ALWAYS DREAM IN COLOR. THERE WAS ALL THESE OLD WHITE BUILDINGS BUT NO PEOPLE ANYWHERE.

I WAS TRYING SO HARD TO WAKE UP BUT I COULDN'T I WAS TERRIFIED. THE I ENTERED THIS WHITE ROOM WHERE I WAS GREETED BY SOME SORT OF PRIEST WITH A HUGE BIRTH MARK ON HIS FACE. IT SEEMED LIKE SOME CHURCH SO I CROSSED MYSELF AS WE DO IN MY RELIGION WHEN  YOU ENTER A CHURCH AND THIS PERSON SAID TO ME "ORTHODOX ARE YOU?" I THINK I JUST NODDED. HE SAID "THAT'S ALRIGHT" AND HE GUIDED ME IN. I AM PRETTY SURE I WAS STILL HOLDING MY BABY AND I WAS HANGING REAL TIGHT. THEN I DON'T KNOW WHAT HAPPENED BUT I STARTED TO WAKE HALF ASLEEP I FELT PRESSURE ON MY FEET LIKE SOMEONE WAS HOLDING THEM DOWN AND I WAS TRYING TO MOVE BUT I COULDN'T.  I LOOKED AT THE END OF THE BED TO SEE WHAT IT WAS. THERE WAS A DARK FIGURE THERE AND I FELT THAT THEY WERE THERE. THEN WHEN I WOKE THERE WAS NO-ONE THERE. I PUT MY BABY DOWN IN THE COT AND WAS SO SHAKEN UP.

THEN IN THE MORNING MY 11 YEAR OLD SON WAKES UP AND SAYS TO ME "MAMA I HAD A NIGHTMARE THAT I DROPPED THE BABY AND HIS SPINE WENT THROUGH HIS NECK" I TOLD HIM DON'T NEVER REPEAT THAT AND NOT TO THINK ABOUT IT AND THAT IT WAS JUST HIS MIND REMINDING HIM ABOUT BEING CAREFUL HOLDING HIS BROTHER.

THROUGHOUT MY LIFE I HAVE HAD EXPERIENCED THINGS LIKE I KNOW WHAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN OR BE SAID. I ALWAYS THOUGHT IT WAS GUESSING RIGHT.

ONLY STARTED TO BELIEVE THERE MUST BE SOMETHING WHEN I TOLD  MY SISTER THAT I FELT LIKE I WAS GOING TO HAVE A CAR ACCIDENT. 2 WEEKS LATER I WAS DRIVING TO HER PLACE AND THIS MOTOR CYCLE ROARED PAST ME AND WHEN  I LOOKED OVER AT HIM AN IMAGE FLASHED BEFORE MY EYES OF HIM COMING OFF THE BIKE AND LYING ON THE GROUND. 5 MINUTES LATER I ARRIVED AT MY SISTERS PLACE AND AS I WAS TURNING IN HER DRIVEWAY THIS SAME MOTOR BIKE TRIED TO OVERTAKE NOT REALIZING THAT I WAS TURNING AND HIT MY CAR AND JUST AS I SAW EARLY HE CAME OFF THE BIKE. THE IMAGE WAS EXACTLY THE SAME. HE WAS BEING CHASED BY THE COPS. THIS HAPPENED ABOUT 3 YEARS AGO.
