I had a dream the other night that has stuck with me, and I don't know what to do with it.
First, I must explain that I dream every night, in color, and all my dreams are vivid and detailed, ranging from excruciatingly terrifying to absolutely elating. I have pregonitive dreams as well, I just cannot discern with any clarity which are benign and which are destined to occur.
That being said, the other night I had a dream which seemed to last the entire length of my sleep, even though I somewhat awoke several times through the night. From what I recall it went like this:
I was in my house, and my doorbell rang. I looked out the side window, and it was my ex husbands fiance. (I have only met her once, they don't live near me) I thought to myself "Why is she at my door? This is weird". I opened the door and she was crying, telling me someone died. I let her in. Then my phone rang. I looked at the call ID and it was my mom. I answered and she was very upset, she told me something happened to my dad. I knew already but I asked. She told me he died. She did not tell me how but I somehow knew it was some type of age issue, like a heart attack. Anyway, I spent the rest of my very long dream making phone calls to family and friends giving them the news, making arrangements to get back home, and figuring out how to tell my kids their grandfather was dead. When I finally awoke for good in the morning, I was very disturbed, glad it was a dream but worried it was soon to be reality.
I went on with my day, my mom called in the A.M. And I was scared to answer it, but did and everything was ok (sigh of relief). I did not tell her of my dream.
This is the strange part. I spoke with my ex later in the day to figure out visiting arrangements for my kids next week and he said, "I'm not sure what what we are doing, things have changed because Pam's (name changed) brother just died." I froze and my piece of dream that I thought meant nothing came flooding back to me. My ex knows of my gifts so I told him, "I dreamed she was at my door last night and told me someone died".
Now I do this often so it doesn't really scare me, but I was perplexed as to why I would dream of her, and why did it seem so significant? So now I am wondering if the part with my father is also true? It does not bother me so much as he is in his late 60's and it would not be a shock, but what bugs me is: did I see the future and why? Am I supposed to tell my parents? I don't feel like I should but I just don't understand what I am supposed to DO with the things I see and how I can tell what is premonition and what is just a dream?
