I wrote about two other experiences in years past that may or may not have been connected to victims of the 9/11 attacks. You can check my past stories for those.
I live in a different apartment now, slightly further downtown. I am sure at least a few people who lived in this urban housing development were involved in the attacks.
I was dosing off to sleep last night, when sometime around 1-2 AM I got a mental image of a gentleman I'd never seen before in my life.
Very normal looking, wearing working clothes. Usually when I am trying to sleep I think of mostly pleasing, sexual images to try and unwind. But this seemed like something that was trying to come into my dream because they needed to be seen.
It's just like your eyes are closed and you can clearly picture them standing there, but when you open your eyes there's nothing.
Later on in the night I woke up to take a leak and I could feel a presence of someone watching me. Didn't see anything but I just had a gut feeling someone was there, possibly the same gentleman who came into my dream. The feeling faded after a few seconds and I went back to sleep.
Our apartment is not haunted and we have only experienced one or two other things we couldn't explain in four years there. Needless to say this resulted in a very fitful sleep heading into today, the anniversary of 9/11.
Has anyone else ever experienced anything like this? Could this be an attachment or just a one time visitation, someone who wanted to have their presence felt on this day?
