Fay A's Experience

Experience description:   

In 1989 my family and I migrated from Italy to Canada. In 1993 my parents gave me as a sweet 16th birthday present a ticket for the summer to my home town of Perugia, Italy.

Approx. 2 weeks before my departure I had a dream. I found myself in front of my childhood friend's door. I found it peculiar to be there but in the dream I told myself 'it's just a dream'. I knocked and after a while my best friend came to the door and looked around but didn't see me standing there and as she was closing the door I sneaked inside.

As I stood inside their foyer and while trying to get their attention these are the things I saw:  first of all it seemed like it was lunch time, all the women of the house were running around trying to set the table, and coming in and out of the kitchen.  Why do I say it was lunch time? Because out of own curiosity of the time of day I looked outside toward their balcony and the sun was shining.

Then I turned my attention to the house.  They had renovated the house.  Where there used to be once upon a time my friend's sisters' bedroom was now the kitchen. Beside the kitchen was the new bathroom with granite like tiles from head to toe. And to my left their dining room was still the same but they had changed the arrangement of the dining room table and the TV.  As I kept on trying to get their attention and calling out for them I started walking toward the end of the foyer and I opened the door to what used to be their living room which was now my friend's bedroom. And further down the hallway the old bathroom was no longer there and her parent's bedroom had not changed.

After again trying without avail to get their attention I finally woke up from my dream.

My first feeling was that it was a dream warning me not to expect much, and I actually tried to convince my parents to cancel my ticket for fear of rejection from my friends.  But I'm so glad I went for that trip.  I'm so glad to have had such a beautiful experience because when I actually went physically to my friend's house I saw all that I saw in my 'dream'.  All the changes in their house, their cooking and eating routines and also the absence of their family pets made me realize it wasn't just a dream, I think literally travelled there in spirit.

He was maybe 3feet tall, around 6-7yrs,with black short hair, tiny cute little shorts and a striped t-shirt.  While I watched him dance I kept on calling my uncle to come and get this child which he had not informed me was living with them. It took approximately 3 minutes for my uncle to come and I watch the boy a total of 5-6minutes.When my uncle came to me and turned the light on the little boy vanished and my uncle denied any boy living there and told me I was dreaming.

Did you have any changes of attitudes or beliefs following the experience?   Yes     I always saw apparitions, or had very profound dreams and I still do. I have a 6th sense and have a very close spiritual connection to God. I'm in now way religious, but my 1st 'paranormal' experience was the apparition of God and from then on my experiences never seized.  I am always being caressed.  I also have led a very hard and difficult life and just because God is with me this is why I persevere.  The out of body experience was another gift he granted me, that's how I look at it.

How has the experience affected your relationships? Daily life? Religious practices? Career choices?       No the only thing I depend on from my 6th sense is my dreams.  Every time I have a question or my life seems at a stand still I am always guided via my subconscious.  Mind you I've heard and been spoken to by identities during waking life.
