I'd like to quickly introduce myself as I am new to this site. I am South African born, currently residing in Johannesburg. I am 28 years old, an artist and up and signed with your sister ghost site.
My mother was 'mhlophe', which is our native tongue for Dreamer. This is not necessarily a witch doctor, but their dreams tend to come true. She also received messages from the deceased through dreams.
I have inherited her gift, but mine is not as powerful as hers. I try not to entertain them cause they always seem to be negative and depressing.
I don't know if I can get assistance but I need some kind of explanation for a dream I had last night, hope this is the right forum. I now wish I had written it down when I woke up but this is what I can remember, sorry about that, you'll just have try bear with me.
In my dream it was daytime. The sky was cloudless, perfect summer weather. I was outside in an open field or a garden (not sure) and I was with a couple of people, can't remember who they were but my older sister was standing next to me. For some reason I looked up and I saw a huge white bird flying in circles over my head. As it started descending I realized it was a white hawk. A beautiful one that seemed to have glittering golden eyes.
It flew down gracefully and landed on my sister and I's shoulder. One leg on each shoulder. My sister didn't panic but simply took a step away from it and it came to rest both its legs on my shoulder. I remember feeling its weight but the claws didn't hurt me. When I looked up at it I realized how big it was and started getting scared. But didn't want to show it my fear.
It perched there for a while then flew up again but not too far. It seemed to be flying around us. I quickly walked into the house cause I had the feeling that it wanted to come back to me.
It's not a dramatic dream, but considering we don't have hawks in South Africa and I've never laid eyes on one before I find it very weird that I should be dreaming about one or let it disturb me the way it is right now.
I tried googling but came up with nothing satisfactory, hence I'm now here.
