This is the first time I have ever joined a site or posted anything on the web, as it were. If I make mistakes please forgive me. The story I am about to tell might sound fanciful so if anyone feels that I was reading too much into it, then please say so. I am only posting this because I am, as the title suggests, confused.
I want to start out by noting that I do not think that I am in anyway special, it is only that this strange event took place and that I don't quite know how to handle it. Mostly I am looking for answers.
I have always had very vivid dreams, interesting and strange, some of which came true to some degrees, as well as horrific nightmares. I have always been an exceptionally scared individual, I did not start sleeping in my own room until I was 14 on account of my irrational fears, of which not all were triggered by dreams.
About two years ago I met a person whom I greatly fancied. I immediately started dreaming about him and his friend, whom I had seen a picture of, but had never met. Later on he asked me out and my dreaming of him continued and changed.
Usually in the dreams in which this person took centre stage he was teaching me things, strange things. His friend was often there, whom I met later and found to be much like his dream self, only he climbed trees and smokes a pipe, something my dreams never suggested.
Once I recall The friend and this person whom I was involved with teaching me about telekinesis. In the dream itself there were various elements, persons and relationships that later cemented themselves in reality. I have no idea how the two are linked. Another dream had me and my Person walking through a kind of cave in which there were rings and spheres, he began describing to me what each ring signified in our universe and the various. Well they were symbols, Runes I want to say, but I am afraid of sounding horribly corny and I have no idea of what that implicates.
The other dreams were mostly about me going places I wished or, as happened often at that time, realizing I was dreaming and changing the dream. My Person was always there, and I never felt afraid. Many of the dreams I had came true in strange ways, not so much in events but in the relationships between people, mostly. There was also an instance of us sharing a dream, which I found unnerving at the time.
We were never physically intimate, I know that perhaps that is too much information, but it was one of the reasons that we no longer see each other.
Afterwards, as in now, my dreams are exceedingly contained and boring. My dreams no longer come true, I am panicky most of the time and have started to see strange flashes of what I perceive to be human-like shapes in our house. This has happened twice now but I don't tend to get freaked out as much, they seem neutral? My dreams are getting to me the most though, I have a very definite feeling of being contained and it irritates me.
In conclusion, my mother, sister and my brother, though he simply said that he felt it and his feelings have proven very true in the past, have begun dreaming of this Person, especially my mother. My mother said that they simply talk sometimes and that he answers questions that she poses to him, which is unnervingly like my dreams of this person of which I might have told my mother only in broad outlines going according to events and not intimate conversations. These question and answer sessions have yet to come true though. My sister had a dream about him that echoed the dream that we had had that was the same, or similar in the least. My brother also told me something about this Person that he felt was going to happen and then something related occurred not an hour after he told me.
I know it seems as if I am making something out of nothing, and I fear to waste the reader's time, yet I am greatly troubled by these changes in events. I know relationships places strain on people and that the resulting trauma of a broken relationship may manifest in strange ways. Yet I cannot help but be bothered.
Other strange things have happened to me, but most of them were when I was younger. Most of it stopped after I lost a very close group of friends, and even before that. I feel these things are unrelated except perhaps for the flashes.
Please, if you think that I am mentally unstable, have completely blown things out of proportion or that perhaps I am just seeking attention (I am, but in the form of an answer that might help me dream better, I feel as if my life is only half lived and I fear so terribly that I might start having nightmares again) please say so, but if you feel otherwise, please respond.
Lastly I must add that my family, myself included, is religious so I am even more confused as how to handle such situations. I used to be in a VERY conservative school and have kept many of the scars of that time.
Thank you for your time.
