About 4 years ago I moved into an apartment with my ex boyfriend who I was engaged to at the time. I was 24, I'm 28 now. He had been acting strange for a while. Like maybe he didn't care about me or want to be around me anymore, but I was in denial about it because I was in love so I ignored my intuition and assumed it was just a phase even though he was really starting to hurt my feelings.
Anyway one night about a week or two after we moved in I had a dream & I don't know if this is connected to what I saw afterward but I'll tell it anyway because it seems like it may have been. I don't remember all the details about it, but basically in the dream a house was on fire and me and his mom were there & I think some of his other family members. His family couldn't get out for some reason and instead of him helping them he just kept making the fire worse I told him I was going to stay there in the burning house unless he helped them get out but he didn't do anything or seem to care if I died in the burning house with them. It was kind of a disturbing dream because in real life he adored his family and would never do anything to hurt them.
When I woke up (in the middle of the night) I laid there thinking about the strange dream for a moment & then it got darker in the room. It was just as if someone turned a light off in the other room. It was strange but I figured maybe it was car lights, or my eyes were playing tricks since I just woke up. I did look towards the hallway though and after a moment a floating form of fire apeared in the hallway just a little behind the doorway about a foot from the ceiling. It didn't have a specific shape, it was somewhat round but not a perfect circle like an orb. It was about the size of a basketball, maybe a little bigger. It also lit up the room a little so I believe it had been there when I was laying there thinking about the dream and when it quit burning is when the room got darker.
It hovered in the same spot at least 30 seconds then slowly vanished and I never saw it again. The fire didn't scare me because for some reason I didn't feel threatened by it. I could just sense that it wasn't something evil, but it definitely got my attention.
I think it may have been related to the dream I had, it didn't make perfect sense but it was almost as if I was being told that if I stayed with my boyfriend I would get burned. Not litterally but basically that he would hurt me. Like I was being looked out for. We broke up a couple weeks latet. It was for the best. I'm married to my best friend now and couldn't ask for a better man.
I have been searching the internet like crazy trying to find someone else that has seen floating fire like this, but haven't found anyone yet that has seen it or might know what it is so it would be really awesome if people would share any insight they may have.
