Real Psychic Experiences

A Soothing Dream


I read a lot of things on this site which have scared me, mostly because I am a believer, and I have experienced a few things myself which have also left me scared. But this is a story about something nice, appeasing.

Some of you may remember the crash of Swissair flight 111 in Sept. 1998. It crashed near Halifax and was a daily flight linking Geneva to New York. I live in Geneva and pretty much everyone I know knew someone on that flight. Geneva is a small town and it was a hard blow to everyone here. I personally had two friends on that flight. One of them, which I will name Harry for the purpose of this story, was not a particularly good friend of mine, but someone who had been in the same classes as me in high school for 5 years. He was based in New York and I had seen him again only 3 months before the crash at a school reunion. When the crashed happened I found out the following morning. For some reason I was extremely affected by his death, more than I thought I should be 'allowed' to. After all it wasn't as if we were very close buddies, in fact we spent most of our time arguing =)

Why was I so sad? And more importantly, why for so long? People around me started feeling better and I would still feel terrible. I remember having nightmares constantly for something like 3 months. Any case, to the point, one night I had this dream where I was back in high school. The school bell had rung and everyone ran out as they usually do to get to their next class or whatever. I came out of one building with some of my friends to go into another building. As I entered the second building I saw this 'glow' coming from a corner of the main corridor. I went toward it and there was Harry, simply standing there (or was he floating 2cm from the ground, I can't really say). I spoke to him. Not much. I just said, 'Hey, it's you. I've been sad about you, you know. I've been having a lot of nightmares since what happened', and all he did was smile and reply, 'I know, but it's ok now'... Then he was gone.

So, maybe it was just me, my brain and I wishing to put an end to my turmoil, but all I can say is there was something very soothing about speaking to him and the minute I woke up I felt very appeased and convinced that Harry was happy, and I no longer had nightmares related to this story.

As a homeopathist I get told of dreams by my patients. One had dreams of her deceased parents which she could not explain, she just thought as it is fashionable to many people that she was not good enough at letting go... But the structure of the dreams showed that it was in fact the souls of their parents saying goodbye. The father dreams nearer to the day of death of her father, as an example, were clearer than those occurring later. I just told her it was not her fault and that her parents just wanted to say goodbye and if she were able to notice during such a dream that she was dreaming and to remember she could say goodbye to her father consciously. I do not know if she will ever do so or have to but she felt comforted, and really was. Current materialist psychology, which she had used on herself before my intervention, often makes people misinterpret what they experience, either in dreams or awake, and then find fault at themselves, instead of doing and believing something that is helpful.

Really, that is absolutely special and awesome experience you had there. It also meant that whatever arguments you had with him in the past, are now forgotten especially he is happy there.

It alway lovely when a little bit of hard evidence convinces you that your beliefs are not in vain huh?

Trust your beliefs and relish in the comfort they provides.

JustLearning - you are absolutely right, it was a blessing and not a simple dream created by myself, this I am sure of. This was one of the rare times I felt the presence of something pure, beautiful and peaceful. I read so many horrible things on this website, about demons, destruction and the end of the world, I think it's good to speak also of all the good 'stuff' out there. I am convinced this soul felt my torment and came to put my spirit at ease.

What a lovely experience. The word "story" is not great. I think the crash and loss upset you. I think that you were comforted. There are others who exist and more than we see and it is not imagination. We have learned to harness fire and made the wheel. We don't know everything. Just take it as a person who knew you were bothered, comforted you, be grateful, and let it go. It was special though. Never doubt that.
