Type of Spiritual Experience


Of course I may be wrong, but being left on your own as a child, whilst your father goes preaching about hell and saving souls and demons is to my mind a form of traumatic abuse, you are instilling terror into the mind of an innocent child

A description of the experience

anon244839 - Post 97

My dream life has always been incredibly strange. I have lived an entire lifetime in a dream and was lying on my deathbed as a 90 year old man. The last thing I did before I woke up was look at my wrinkled, pale hands. When I awoke, I still believed I was old and I felt elderly, had stiff joints and slow movements and all. It took about thirty minutes to wear off. I used to have recurring dreams of grey arms coming out of my mattress and holding me down.

I have had numerous instances of these hallucinations throughout my life (currently 25). As a child, I had frequent nightmares. I certainly understand that sometimes it is simply "crossed wires," but other times, there is something more spiritual involved.

Now I don't wish to cause anyone any undue anxiety or come off as some weird uber-spiritual nut job, but there is spirit world around us. You can call it what you like (I often find the scientific idea of intertwined dimensions makes the most sense). I say this because as I said I have had many of these over my lifetime.

The earliest one I remember was when I was very young child and I "awoke" in the middle of the night. But when I tried to roll over to go back to sleep a great pressure was upon me. I imagined it as a giant ladybug (of all things). My head was stuck facing down my bed towards my feet. As I struggled to move, a pale, glowing, and floating face floated towards me. A feeling of sheer terror filled me but I still could not move as the severed face advanced. I don't think I could even blink or look away. The face was sticking its tongue out at me, in a malicious manner. It's hard to explain but the way the face protruded its tongue out was just evil. I can't remember what happened after but I remember the next morning I told my family of this.

Not so coincidentally, my brother had a dream that a bear was chasing him and this bear was making the exact same face. Now, I will explain the reason I treat this as a spiritual event. First off I have heard that the symbolism of a grotesquely protruding tongue is of a satanic nature, as are malicious bears. Masonic and satanic cultures use these symbols to represent Lucifer. Alongside that fact, my father was a minister and he was away preaching to people and apparently had a good meeting and souls were saved, etc. Many other times when my parents were out on trips such as these, I would have these experiences.

There have been other times I have had these types of hallucinations, but they were brought on by the dream itself. One time I was verbally engaged with a demon of sorts in a dream (some would call it spiritual warfare) and woke up and continued my sentence without pausing. I could feel it still with me in the room. I felt a burning sensation on my forearms and my room had a certain darkness to it. I found that praying and telling the "demon" or what have you to leave stops the symptoms immediately.

It may sound corny and all but as I said there is a spirit world I have had many spiritual experiences in my life ……. So I urge all of you who see goblins, demons, black clouds and angry voices to give it a try. All in all, it cannot make anything worse. I hope that helps, I know it has helped me on some disturbing occasions.
