Too Close for Comfort

Posted on October 28, 2009

Hi, my name is Livie and I live in Brisbane, Australia. I have many ghost stories that have happened to me personally, however I would like to share one that occurred around three years ago, and one that I believe is very significant from all that I have witnessed.

The majority of experiences occur in my sleep, and it has gotten to the stage that I now know the difference between a normal dream and a ‘surreal’ dream. This particular night I went to bed like any other night, and it was in my dreams that I met two men somewhere in a green park. I walked up to them and sat down on the grass, where they fell silent and studied me. This happened for a little while, and then one of them nodded his head slightly and disappeared.

The other, all of a sudden, was sitting in front of me, and, while still studying me, he began to tell me of his life. He told me that, like he did, I had a lot of hard work ahead of me, and that I was never to consider quitting. Throughout this conversation, it seemed like he was looking down at me, like he was rising above me. He then mumbled something, and I looked extra hard at him while asking him to repeat himself.

This is when I realized that my eyes were open, he was sitting cross-legged on the bed right next to me (I have a queen sized bed) looking down at me whilst still speaking (mumbling). I could see his reflection in the mirror on my cabinet on the other side of him, and this was when I realized I was no longer asleep.

The greenness of the park had vanished, and he was now surrounded by the darkness of my room.  He had a faint glow,and he was very life-like. I tried to look at him closer still, and it was then that he turned his head away from me so that I couldn’t see his face. He sighed, and then I was by myself, as he had disappeared.

Unlike those other experiences I have had, I was never once afraid. I did feel slightly weirded out, but I just rolled over and concentrated on sleeping. I believe he could have been lonely or something and needed someone to talk to. But then again, if there is a next time, I hope he stays in my head and keeps out of my reality.

    that sounds like a spirit guide….I had a similar experience, where a woman came into my room, I could not see her with my eyes, but I could feel her, and hear her talk….she said something like, “I don’t want to scare you, so I won’t show myself to you, but listen carefully, things are going to get really hard and I want you to stay focused on your goals….in spite of all the hard times”

    And soon after that I entered one of the most difficult periods of my life…..and everytime I felt lost, I just kept focusing on my goals…..helped to get me through it.

    That’s an interesting story. What stood out to me is you mentioned the “greeness” of the park. They say that we don’t dream in color, but I clearly remember in my most vivid dreams seeing color, and more vividly than in my waking state. I also find it frustrating not to remember what is said to me in instances like yours.

    I agree with Eileen…that’s exactly what it sounds like. I have a friend who told me of a very similar encounter to what you described…where it seemed as though a dream merged into reality.

    I’m glad you were not afraid, and thank you for sharing that experience.

    i agree with all of the above!!

    Hey guys, thanks for the feedback, Eileen and SG67- i think it could have been one of my spirit guids (i have three- but that was another experience) aswell, cos he was kind of ‘guiding’ me in that sence with his advice. and Tony, you have no idea about how vivid this dream was, i could see the colour of his eyes, it was so exact, precise and clear, it was like every colour was intensified. and MATT, you seriously need to do something about that reoccuring dream/experience, cos that is some scary stuff and it might be doing more damage than you think. I wish you all the luck, i know, to a lesser extent, what its like in that situation, but that one could be for another time. thanks guys.

    I had a similar experience three years ago, though I didn’t see an apparition of any kind. I went to close my bedroom window because it was raining and as it reach for the handle a hand tried to grab me. It didn’t look healthy either like it had been rotting. I was that startled I fell back on to the floor and hit my head on my bedroom door. To this day I don’t know what it was but it scared the shit out of me. When I tell people they just laugh and say I was seeing things. Dose any one know what this is???
