Prompt 10: Unexplained Memories

Originally Published:  November 2, 2013

I do have a few memories that were pretty weird! When I was a young girl I had several dreams in which I had these weird feelings of movement and I felt dizzy and disoriented and all I could see was this gray area surrounded by two sections of orange. I would feel weird when I would wake up from these dreams but not really afraid. The dreams continued periodically for many months. I didn’t understand the dreams and I couldn’t figure out what was happening to me in the dream. After a while the dreams stopped for a while but then I started having them again. A few months later, I had a weird experience that explained the dream to me and I never had the dream again.

We bought an orange and white blazer. Then, a few weeks later I had to go to the dentist and have a couple of fillings. The doctor had given me some medicine to knock me out while he was doing the fillings. I felt dizzy. I was about halfway home when I realized that this was how I felt in the dreams and the view of the floorboard with the orange surfaces surrounding the floorboard was the view from my dream.

I haven’t had these dreams since this day. We didn’t own the orange and white blazer when I started having the dreams and we weren’t even planning on trading cars at the at time.

I have had a few other weird experiences. I have had several dreams of conversations that I didn’t understand at the time. Sometimes, I didn’t even understand at the time of the dream the context of the conversation. The conversation would be about things I didn’t even know about at time of the dream. Then, weeks or months later I would realize that I was either observing or participating in the conversation from my previous dream.

I haven’t had one of these dreams in many years. However, the dreams have left me with a belief that psychic visions other psychic phenomena can be true. However, I also believe that many of the so-called psychics on tv and in the news are fakes.

I don’t have explanations for my own experiences but How I don’t have explanations for many of the things in the world!
