Rachel C's Experiences


Besides continuous/recurring dreams and the normal lucid dreams I have had 4 precognitive dreams...First was a déjà vu style dream. Dreamt my sisters boyfriends house caught fire and the next day it did. The other was an intense dream that was almost like waking around a movie set and witnessing the filming. The dream came in two parts and I had dreamt the entire Norway terrorists attacks that occurred in 2011. Every detail. I had seen a news photo of a man shooting people who were swimming away in the water and that's when my heart sank. I continued to read the news story and it was a description of my dream. It was a horrible feeling. I feel guilty for having that dream to this day. Third was 'daydream' style. Driving with my family and I just had this strong sense of death. I said this feels like a spot a dead body would be found- next day one was found in the same spot I had said. My stepmom, who is a police officer had called to tell me what I had said turned to be true. Last and most current was walking with my sister through a predominantly black neighborhood...everything is fine until suddenly the space is covered with heavy snow and cops find a body in the snow. The next week cops found the body of a young girl who had been kidnapped. They found the body in an abandoned house on Cleveland's East side. The body was found during our biggest snow storm this year.

OBE #1 started as a lucid dream. I was with a friend who was having financial issues and I was giving her advice when she showed me a (ugly) tattoo she had just gotten. I told her she was crazy for spending her little money on that and I was leaving because she had annoyed me. In the dream I thought I was maybe driving home- it was confusing. I was telling myself I should not be driving because I'm asleep. The 'road' was solid black with what seemed to be headlights shining so bright in my tired eyes that I could hardly keep them open. I was fearing getting pulled over. Eventually I was back home to find my sister was tripping on some crazy drug she referred to as venom. In real life she was just at work. When I woke from my phone ringing and looked at the time I realized all the dream had happened in only about 3 minutes of what felt like the deepest sleep I had been in. I woke up feeling wide awake after only minutes of sleep. I felt anxious but not too bad.

OBE # 2 Felt very intense. One minute I was wide awake and the next I was just passed out. I felt heavy and paralyzed. I felt like if I could talk it would be muffled slow motion. I felt 'myself' begin to float in the air. I tried to resist it. It felt deeply uncomfortable. I 'floated' over to my bedroom window where bright street lights were shining in. I looked through the blinds and saw my next door neighbor staring at me. I felt panicked that she had seen me floating in my room. I could hear what I can describe as white noise. Lights were brighter than real life. My neighbor looked terrorized in the face. I fought hard and woke myself up. I didn't like how it felt. I opened my eyes. It was almost impossible to wake up. I stood up nearly falling over as if I could fall on the floor back to sleep. I left my room to get some water. I felt sick to my stomach. I went back in my room and went to close my blinds when I walked over to the blinds I could see my neighbor next door in her kitchen window. She was doing some late night dishes. She wasn't looking at me but she was there for real. I still feel shook over that occurring.

Most recent lucid dream.... I'm walking at night through a small town...suddenly a woman runs from out of a store or shop...she doesn't see me. I go back to where she ran from...I look in the window and see about 10 dead people among a large Victorian bookshelf, Men and woman. The little town resembled a place I have been to in real life in Lorain Ohio. The next night I dream of an acquaintances husband, I won't say his name, but in the dream he had sent me a picture of the same bookshelf asking if I wanted it or knew anyone who would. His name was in my texts which is how I know. The dream stopped at that. I googled him because I don't personally know him and I was trying to put the dream together...the first thing that shows up on Google...his photograph and the company he owns...a funeral and cremation specialist for a Lorain Ohio funeral home. Still waiting to see if anything comes from this. It's probably just random. I'm afraid to message him asking him anything, not sure what I'd say anyway...he would think I was nuts if I told him the dream. So we shall see...
