Usha P's Experience
I was sleeping on the bed with my brother's children aged 9 and 11 yrs old. My brother, younger to me, passed away 9 months ago in a massive heart attack aged 41. The day was fulfilling because I had to gone to visit his family with provisions. On the way back we met my dad on the beach where he goes walking, the same beach where my brother's ashes were immersed. He wanted to take us out for dinner but I was tired so we came back home. Some amount of emotional stress as my son becomes possessive about the computer, TV, guitar etc when the kids are around. My son was also seeking attention from me, which he normally gets an overdose of, all the time but more so yesterday.
I drifted off to sleep
cuddling my niece. I think after sometime I could feel my body ache (legs were
paining) and somehow I thought I died and am trying to find my way to don't know
where but I am clear I am not going back to the place I died. I see my cousins
and dad in a state of shock. My dad is telling me not to go and I am telling him
- don't cry pops, I am fine. I see a man sitting in front of a small open air
temple (which is only a huge stone in the dream) - he smiles at me and points to
the stone and then I start feeling very light, no body weight at all. I am
flying like a piece of paper somersaulting gently and then I feel as I am
dropping and I realized I am dropping back into my body in the sleeping
position- the weight and the pain returns. I am very alert and awake and keep my
eyes closed. I feel very thirsty. I want to see the time but don't want to open
my eyes - suddenly I feel there could be other spirits around me and that is a
little scary. I overcome the feeling and check the time - its 2.30am. And then I
will myself back to sleep.
