About two years ago I became aware of a certain spirit who seemed to hang around me a lot. Sometimes I would feel his presence, as though he were standing right next to me, other times I would just feel as though he were watching me. Shortly after I noticed him, I began having strange dreams about him. They would either seem very metaphorical, or they would be very realistic and in his point of view. I told my best friend about them and she agreed that it was definately a spirit communicating with me. The dreams continued over the course of that year, as did the waking experiences. More often than not when I was awake I would feel his presence. Sometimes he would show me things in my head, such as his bedroom when he was a kid, or his reaction to things like a girlfriend cheating on him.
This continued until July of that year. I woke up one morning and had every intention of getting out of bed, but for some reason, my eyes just snapped shut and I found myself in this white room. It was beautiful with this real soft glow. There was nothing in it except for a white bench against the wall which is where I was sitting and next to me was the spirit who'd been following me. We talked for a little and I noticed he kept looking around the entire time. Finally I asked him if he could bring anyone there or if it was just me and he said, "Actually, you're not even supposed to be here. I really shouldn't be doing this, but I had to actually sit down and talk to you and this was the only way to do it." I started to say something else, but then he jumped up and said, "You have to leave." He put his hands on my shoulders and said, "Can you do something for me? I want you to have a seance for me." I said that I would and then I suddenly woke up. I immediately texted my best friend to tell her about it and she began freaking out because over that winter, she had been in the hospital having an operation and had died for several minutes on the operating table. She said that the only thing she remembers is being in a white room with her grandparents (who had passed away several years before) and she described the exact room that I saw. She said after she got out of the hospital she started researching near death experiences and that this is one of the main rooms that people see. We were going to have a seance for him, but we didn't have a third person.
After that experience, this spirit didn't hang around as much. Occasionally I would feel his presence, but he never showed me things in my dreams and very rarely even when I was awake. This lasted for about a year and I kind of missed him, because he is in no way a frightening or negative spirit.
This past July, my best friend passed away. A couple days after she died, I had a dream about her. She was outside my window telling me that she really needed to tell me something, but I ignored her for some reason? I didn't really think anything of it at the time, other than "Oh she was visiting me."
About a month later, the spirit came back. He began showing me things in my dreams and while I was awake. Again, I didn't think anything of it. I was just excited.
Then last week I dreamed about both him and my best friend. They had hung a bunch of pictures of this spirit while he was alive on a fridge along with a typed out quote that was supposed to be from his best friend I guess that said something like, "He could've done anything if he'd developed thought consciousness." As soon as I woke up, literally the first thing I thought was 1.) That quote was directed at me and 2.) It means I need to start meditating. Which I have.
I just can't get over the fact that this spirit and my best friend were in this dream together. And now I find it strange that he came back a month after she passed away. I'm also really wondering now what it was that she needed to tell me.
I can't shake this feeling, like deep inside, that he wants me to do something for him. It doesn't feel like he's just randomly showing me things. It feels like everything I see is deliberate and there's just something that needs to be done and for whatever reason I'm the one who needs to do it.
I guess I'm just wondering what other peoples' take on this is. Has anybody experienced something similar? Does anybody have any advice for me as far as what I should do? Is there a way to understand more what's going on or do I just have to wait for him to show me things and hope that one day it will make sense?
