Waking up in the morning after a long night of dreaming, may sometimes leave you feeling drained, as if you were awake all night. Dreams may come in bits and pieces, or as a long realistic film. They may be very vivid, or can be quite hazy, only leaving you remembering a short amount of information. For this reason, I advise everyone to keep a journal for your dreams. This will help you remember your dream, and will act as a tool for you in the future whenever you want to refer back to it.
This reminds me of a dream I had back on April 15, 2013. I wrote, ” I don’t remember the dream very well, but I felt I was there to fulfill a mission. Although I have never been to New York or Boston, it slightly resembled pictures I’ve seen. There was a large building that I entered. The first thing that caught my eye, was a plaque on the wall that read, “I am with you, Lutheran 8:26”. Not sure if this is a bible scripture of some sort. There was always a man there on my journeys. A protector, it seemed.
Before I headed towards the elevators, I noticed there were two men starring at me in the lobby. They were tall, skinny, with a thin face, they had dark hair, and soft waivy locks. One of the men had thin lips and a faded goatee. They both looked of Arab decent .
As I headed up towards my office, I walked into a room with only two desks. I had only one business partner, whom, for some reason, felt very trustworthy. Suddenly, I look down at the floor, and find a shoebox. I picked up the shoebox and proceeded to open it. It was filled with cookies and chocolate covered strawberries. There was also a small note attached to it which read, “This is for all your hard work. Thank you!” The note was from the two men I had previously seen, before entering the lobby elevators. I mentioned to my colleague as to what a nice gesture it was. She did not seem pleased at all . She simply responded with, “Yeah, too nice! Don’t be fooled. Looks can be very deceiving.”
As my colleague was telling me this, I was shown a mental scene (like that of a premonition) with one of the men I had seen, talking to the other guy on his cell phone, as if they if they were plotting something.” Then, immediately I woke up. While I was getting ready for work, I had a very anxious feeling in the pit of my stomach. It was a busy day and I had now left to pick up my children from school. I decided to turn on talk radio. They were commentating on the Boston marathon. At 2:49 p.m., the unthinkable happend! Two bombs simultaneously went off during the marathon, injuring and killing innocent people. This feeling of unsteadiness and fear came over me. Later on that evening, they discovered that there were two brothers, of Arab decent, that had conspired together in this crime. They had placed a bag on the sidewalk. Inside, there was a pressure cooker and homemade bomb. I remembered the two men in my dream that were talking about formulating a plot, and my co-worker who said to not be deceived by the delicious things that the shoebox contained.
I spent the whole night thinking, what could I have done? To this day, I’m still not sure of the answer. What I do know, is that I was able to connect both my dream and the horrific incident that took place later that day. Unfortunately, there are dreams you rather not remember, and this was definitely, one of those.
