I don’t know if anyone else ever experienced this but here goes nothing,
For a very long time since my earlier years, even back when I was a practicing Christian or Catholic. I usually dreamt of the dead, one of those spirits is my maternal grandad, one I never managed to meet as a child for he left this realm before I was conceived or born into this world.
As time passes by, it is starting to be clear to me that he came back to this realm in order to watch over me and to safeguard me from the sort of nightmares which sometimes still do plaque my mind or body. I am able to hear his voice and sense his presence which emits off a feeling of calmness whenever I do feel fear or anxiety. To see him in dreams though not yet but I do feel the weight of his touch whenever I’m embraced by him in dreams. The only actual spirit I saw in a dream was another elder side in the maternal family, this one served in the military back when he was alive, so one could understand why I felt a bit intimidated yet mostly respectful of his presence
I don’t know if it was also my maternal granddad who also warned me that someone in the family dies, his youngest brother in the province was apparently the other person in one of my dreams, it wasn’t a good premonition / sign in that dream. Back then I wasn’t Pagan or Wiccan but I felt something bad will occur I just couldn’t tell when it would occur til I heard from one of my maternal relatives their father’s brother passed away. I dare not tell anybody else related to me I had that sort of dream, one side is terrified easily while the other is either indifferent or follows the lead of the leading party.
Has anybody else here ever had that feeling of impending doom hours before it happens? Or hear the voices of spirit/s here in this realm to? Or have I finally gone mad just as most of those who showed potential to become a Babaylan / Healer before being initiated to the practice?
