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".
