I suppose that everything started within the last year or two. Or, at least, that's when I really began to notice things.
The strangest occurrence that has happened is my seeing these floating orbs at night. It's happened three times now-- once in my old apartment and twice where we currently reside.
The first and second time were pretty similar. I awoke both nights to see a milky white floating orb above me. It was about the size of a grapefruit and fuzzy at the edges. It had this sort of tail thing that tapered off at the end, like one of the vintage Christmas ornaments or toppers you see on trees. You could kind of see through it, but it was definitely solid. Anyhow, I stared at it for a moment or two before it rose slowly and dissolved just before it hit the ceiling. I never felt any panic upon seeing it. In fact, I experienced this overwhelming sort of comfort while it was there.
The last incident was a little different. My boyfriend woke me up to tell me that he saw something above him (which is nothing new, as he tends to 'see' a lot of things at night and talks in his sleep) and as I sat up, there were all of these smaller, less bright things above him about two inches from the ceiling. There were about eight or so of them, and they moved around kind of like slow static. These weren't as round and defined as everything else I had seen above me, but stopped after we caught a glimpse of them and dissolved into mid air just like the others. Of course, when I asked him if he remembered what we saw that night, he told me that he had no recollection of such events. Go figure.
I don't know if it's related at all, but I figure I might as well mention that I've also been experiencing a few dreams that have related directly to things that happened the next day.
In one, I was running around on the eve of my wedding day (which has yet to happen) and was obsessed in my dream about finding a ring. The entire dream was centered around that ring. While I was still dreaming, my boyfriend woke me up, very excited that he had finally found the ring he got me a few weeks back and quickly misplaced. He slid it on my left ring finger and told me I could never take it off.
In another dream, we were looking at a house that we had planned to go see in real life the next day. The house in the dream had a huge bathroom with a pretty decent sized hole in it that went straight to the floor below. When we went to see the house the next day, lo and behold there was a set of tiles in the master bathroom floor that would creek, squeak and crack whenever one would walk on or around them. I wouldn't even walk on them because the whole section felt so weak.
There have been a few other times when I would think about something and it would happen right after that, but nothing huge. Just songs that would start play on the radio as I was thinking about them, picking up my phone right before I get a message, etc.
Does all of this interconnect by chance? Even if the separate incidences don't go together, each thing is pretty interesting and I would like to know more information on them. If there was a way to hone these "skills" (both the dream thing and being able to see what I assume are energies/spirits), I would really love to do so. I just wouldn't want to get into the spirit thing without some guidance!
