My first experience with dreams happened the night before my grandmother died. I dreamed that I drove to the cemetery. It was dawn. I didn't get out of my car, just sat and stared at the floor of the car. Someone tapped on my window and I slowly looked up to see long black hair and a finger motioning me to get out. I was scared to death but I did as I was asked. The woman asked me if I wanted to walk with her, I did. I noticed as we were walking that I didn't have shoes on and could feel the wet grass on my feet. I also noticed that when she was walking, her feet weren't quite touching the ground.
We ended up at my grandfather's headstone. She asked me if I wanted to feel what death felt like. I said yes and she put my face against the headstone. It was cold and hard. It made me very sad. She said, "Don't be sad, he is waiting on someone". I knew immediately that my grandmother was going to die. She walked with me back to my car and asked me if I wanted to see my baby. I was pregnant at the time. I told her of course and I saw that my baby was a boy and what he looked like. She said for me not to worry because of the baby. The dream ended.
I woke the next morning and pulled back the sheets to see if I had wet grass on my feet. I didn't. I called my Mother and told her that I thought Mamaw would die today. She was dead by 2:30 that afternoon.
My grandmother raised me. My Mother had to work a couple of jobs to feed my brother and I and Mamaw lived with us. I was VERY close to her although she had 16 other grandchildren, I knew that I was her favorite.
At her funeral, my Aunt, Mamaw's sister, took me aside and said she had heard that about my dream. She said, "Don't be afraid, your grandmother could do the same thing, it is passed to you now".
There has been about 7 deaths in my family since then and every time I knew who and when it would happen as witnessed by several family members.
I always know when things are going to happen to anyone that I love. It is a hard thing to live with. I sometimes feel like a freak. I don't know what this gift is. I would appreciate anyone helping me.
