Jessica's Experience

Experience description:   

I have had several dreams throughout my life that have felt very real. I've also had dreams about future events that have in fact happened afterwards. Most of those occurred between the ages of 13-16. Over the past couple of months my dreams have become very realistic once again, but while realistic during the dream the probabilities of the actual occurrence are slim.  

Last night I dreamt that I was in a field outside with my husband and there were other people present, but I did not know them personally. We were all standing and staring at the night sky. It was a nice balmy night and I could almost feel the breeze. I looked up and noticed a shower of shooting stars speeding across the sky. Everyone pointed in happy amazement. All of the sudden fire balls started falling and they were hurling towards us. People were screaming and panic stricken parents were running to save their children. I looked to my left for my husband but couldn't see him. I knew I was going to die. A large mass of fire was flying towards me and I put my arms up to shield my face. I didn't feel pain on impact, instead I felt this extreme (I cannot even express in words) peace. Everything was white. It surrounded me and cradled me. I felt sincere love and understanding. I remember hearing a sound that was almost like waves and a flute. It was sharp and constant, but it didn't hurt my ears. At that moment I remembered my husband and I began to panic. No one was here. I wanted him to be with me. "Is he okay?" I asked. When I spoke my voice was different. The language was not English and it was almost like singing. With each question I could see the light fading. I didn't want to leave the light, but I wanted my husband too. I reached out for the light. I ran to it and begged it to stay. I remember saying "I want" and it was gone. I woke up feeling out of breath and as if I were about to die. My ears were ringing and I was scared that I would never feel that peace again because I said, "I want".
