Last night as I was falling asleep I had a pre-dream where I knew I was in my bed trying to fall asleep. I felt my partner slip into bed with me and come in from behind to cuddle me. I loosened my arms to accept his embrace and settle back into the comfort of his chest. I feel his breath against my neck. After a moment, I he whispers in my ear, “Are you afraid of me?” With his words, I thought why would I be afraid of you? His words jar my awareness enough to question my present situation. I assumed he was Joe my ex partner but if he was Joe then this had to be a dream because Joe and I are no longer together. Still feeling his presence behind me I answered, “Who are you?” I snuggle his arm around my belly pulling him in closer. He then taps my forehead 3 times as if to tell me to wake up.
His tap on my head startled me. It was something I felt physically and was completely unexpected because my focus was on his chest and arm. I immediately thought, how did he do that? I knew at this point his embrace wasn’t physical but instead part of the dream. I took caution to try to remain in the dream, but unfortunately i came too. I then realized it was my my own fingers which I had on my head that provided the physical sense of tapping my head. I think he hit my funny bone which made my fingers twitch causing the taps.
Now awake I turned and to see my son Oliver quietly sleeping beside me. He was looking in my direction.
~~~~~ DREAM ENDS
This dream left me very startled because it crossed over into the physical. Even though it was my own hand tapping me the timing was not accidental. It signaled to me this was important but what could it possibly mean. Maybe this hold the key to possibly finding love again. Maybe its telling me I already have the love of my life and purpose for living my son who lays beside me. Maybe it is a question I need to seriously consider and who was this who settled into my bed.
Are you afraid of me?
Who are you?
