45 Year Old Unknown Hero


I know that this is not a dream venue but I am not looking for interpretation as it's very obvious. What I'd like to know is how on Earth is this possible?

Two nights ago I had a dream whereas I was approximately 4-6 years old. There was an older boy that said his name was Jake or Jack and he was approximately 5-6 years older than I in the dream.

He was the only one that talked... I just listened.

He told me that very long ago when we both were these ages as in my dream, he saved my life from near drowning. He stated that he always remembered doing that for me and told me that recently he had died. He said that he had not lived a very good or honest life but wanted me to know that this one good deed he did allowed him to pass into his next existence.

As he talked about the incident, I remember seeing/feeling flashes of slightly familiar sounds and/or setting... Like I was at a resort or hotel pool. It was a very soothing and loving feeling in the dream and what was strange was that I knew I was dreaming.

I woke up and remembered the entirety of the dream and I dismissed it as just a very wild and vivid sleep journey.

Throughout the day I couldn't let it go and finally asked my elderly mother if I had ever almost drowned and described the dream in the same text as the question I posed.

She immediately replied that this actually happened 45 years prior when I was 5 and my foot and ankle got lodged in a spillway of the pool at a Holiday Inn in Illinois and that she and my dad and older sisters didn't see me slip under the water. She said a boy around the age of 12 with a name that started with a J but she couldn't remember exactly had saved me and pulled me out of the pool after he got my foot free.

Even more odd is that over the past 12-18 months, I have had very real and "awake" dreams whereas my deceased dad and sister spend what seems as hours with me chatting about life, memories and such. We are never at the same locations and none of which I recognized even after waking. The talks are deep and loving with a sense of just enjoying the company of one another.

Further, earlier on the night of the dream of being saved by Jake, I had seen a very bright white light flash anomaly outside in my front courtyard literally 3-5 feet from my face level that looked like a misty white translucent cloth twisting and elevating and then disappeared instantly in a flash.

I do not do drugs and was not intoxicated in the least. Can anyone shed some light on this as both my wife and I and my mother are baffled.

I agree with all the comments here.

We ask how this can be because we have lived a life where we have shut ourselves off from such things.

But every now and again some experience comes along and shows us that our rigid, restricted views of live are keeping us from seeing how things really are.

It is possible because that is how life is.

If we let go of even more opinions and rigidities, maybe we would see even more extraordinary things.

Thanks for sharing.

"How on Earth is this possible?"

It does happen. It may be new to you and relatively uncommon but things like this have happened to many people. The thing I hope you take to heart is to go with it and experience it without getting distracted with questions of how it is possible.

It is interesting in that everything fits together. There is nothing out of place. Like you said the meaning or purpose is obvious. Sometimes there are one or more things that seem out of place and especially difficult to understand how they fit.

This is very straightforward. Everything in the dream was real. A clear message that tells us that our story does not end when we die. Also you helped him transition towards heaven. That clear light went into heaven is what you saw, or at least into the light... Very beautiful story.

It's "possible" because we are souls that incarnate on earth to evolve. We evolve by moving gradually away from service to self to service to others. Though this person had made some ill advised choices in this life (who of us has not?), he had done a really great thing by risking his own life to save yours. So that trump card superseded much of what else he did. He was going to pass into the next state of existence whether or not he did good deeds, but he probably passed into a higher state because of that. We all go through life reviews when we pass and not only did he get to see he saved you, but he saw your entire life and how it affected others. That was his contribution. If you've ever seen "It's a Wonderful Life", you'll remember that saving one life can lead to hundreds of other lives affected.

It's is quite common that deceased relatives come and visit us during dreams. 'Where' are dreams? They are on many levels of the astral but the clear and meaningful ones are on the higher planes. Just because we pass from this life does not mean we stop loving and missing those we hold dear.

These are such wonderful gifts. I am so glad you shared this with us. It's a reminder to us all to do good to others. We too will pass through the veil and get our own life review and see how our actions affected others, for better or for worse.
