Who had this premonition and when did it take place?
I had this premonition on 9/11/2001.
What was seen in the premonition?
During this time I was in my undergradudate studies at a school in Southern California. I lived in a dorm with my roommate. After going to bed for the night, at some point I had the most unexplicably terrifying dream that felt real in my life.
The dream started with my old childhood home. For some reason, I was trapped behind the front door's screen and was looking out into the front lawn. There, I could see my mother and my siblings standing there. Suddenly, a creature (resembling a bear) appeared and started to attack them. I could only silently yell and hit the door, powerless as I watched my family be destroyed by this beast, right before my eyes.
I've never had a dream similar to that and I awoke in a cold panic. There was a feeling of darkness and dread that filled me. I thought about waking up my roommate for company, because for the first time in my adult life even the darkness of the room was terrifying me. I could not describe the feeling in any way but fear, dread, panic, like a killer was in your home and you knew there was no way out.
I got up from my bed and sat in the bathroom, trying to distract my thoughts and sitting in light. It did not work. When I finally went back to bed, I stll did not feel settled. There was something very wrong and I had no idea where to even beging to understand what was happening.
Eventually daylight came and at some point I had managed to calm and drift back to sleep. My roommate and I had the same early lecture period and walked to class. We arrived a few minutes late and when we walked in, thought a movie was playing on the lecture hall's theater screen. It was no movie, but 9/11 news unraveling. At that point, my mind made the slightest connection (but not as now) about what all had happened to me in all the hours of the night before.
- The lessons I learned from this I still search for this day. I strongly believe in faith and that if at that point in college I were more spiritually sound and aware, I would have said a prayer for whoever a darkness may have been coming to. To this day I pray for the lives affected by the tragedy and wish before it had happened, I could have had the forsight to do similar. Why I had this premonition, I still do not know. I've had other dreams and experiences that are of an insightful nature into spirituality and things that may be unknown, but directly tell the nature of a person or situation.
