Have any of you experienced anything that defies explanation? Please tell us about it. This is my favorite Art Bell-type topic.
OK, I mentioned I'd post on a dream I had regarding the events immediately following my death.
In December 1997 I had the strangest dream. Have never had a dream like this in my life prior to this and can't recall any dream I've had since with the impact in my waking state following this one.
At the onset of the dream, one of my brothers, who died of cancer in 1978 appeared before me and warned me of my own demise. This was the first time I had ever seen him in a dream in the 19 years since his passing.
Next, a was in a field of grass or grain on what appeared to be a bright, sunny morning. I looked up and saw cloud formations slowly moving in a counter clockwise manner. No rain or storms threatened as they were puffy cumulus clouds in a bright blue sky.
I looked down at myself and I seemed younger. I was wearing sand colored jeans and a dungaree shirt. I felt really good as the injuries I've sustained over time were absent. I was barefoot.
Holding my arms out at shoulder height, I began to glide out into the field, feeling the grasses tickle the soles of my feet about six inches or so off the ground. The sunlight was comfortable and the air fresh and clean. I closed my eyes while smiling as this occurred.
When I opened my eyes I could see a small group of people, none of whom I knew suprisingly, clustered out in the middle of a rise in this field. They seemed unawares of me upon my arrival so listened in to the conversation.
The subject matter being discussed concerned my death. I wasn't alarmed as I was truly enjoying the state in which I found myself. Death or not, my continuance afterwards was not only happening but I was unaware/couldn't recall any trauma when transitioning from the biologically living to the the state I was in now. They then saw me but didn't speak - just smiled. I closed my eyes and smiled and then woke up in my bed around 4 AM.
So what was I to make of this dream? Had I died in my sleep - clearly "no"? Was I going to die soon? Was this a warning for me to take immediate action? As it turns out it was a warning as a trip to my cardiologist was none too soon - I had one month before a massive haert attack was almost certain to occur. Got a 5-way bypass as a result two days after my birthday. I would have died at age 49 ... as a result I am still among the living.
Hopefully the dream I had is what I will finally experience when my time is actualy over here in this plane of existence. I have a lot to discuss with my brother and I'd like to spend a lot of time exploring the universe.
