I had a dream about 2 years ago, I was entering a church and in the first row there was a man sitting with curly short hair, his head bowed and I knew he was really sad. My heart went to him and even when we didn't really talk I knew his name was Israel and that we were very good friends, I cared about him a lot.
Reality was that I have never seen that guy in my life, my best friend's name is Israel too so I thought that my head just mixed everything up.
That day I got up, went to work and even told my dream to a couple of coworkers.
At the end of the shift, about 6 pm, we decided to share a cab, I sat in the back with one of them and were chatting about churches (I was deciding for one for a wedding ceremony).
I glimpsed side of the driver's face and was kind of familiar, I remembered the guy from my dream but it wasn't possible, he had curly hair too but it was longer. Then the driver got mad at someone on the street and I heard him curse. I was positive that the guy from my dream was really nice, not like him. So I kept chatting with my coworker until suddenly, the driver interrupted us, apologizing for his behavior and started chatting happily with us.
I immediately felt the connection, then he turned and his face was really the same as in my dream. He was recommending me a pastor he knew that did a beautiful ceremony for him and his wife.
"Oh how long have you been married" I asked him.
His face turned sour and he answered that his wife died. I felt my heart clench. "I'm so sorry" was all I could muster.
Then he gave me his phone number to call him in case I was interested in the pastor and said, "by the way, my name is Israel, nice to meet you".
My coworkers said later to me that if I hadn't told them my dream earlier, they wouldn't have believed it... I still had trouble believing it myself. (I kind of dream with strangers that I care about or love strongly frequently, like an altern universe)
I had some problems later at work so I quit and his number was in the phone I returned. I haven't seen him again.
This is one of many weird things that had happened to me along the years... Feel free to comment:)
