These occurrences have happened recently, but they all tie into an older story/series of small events throughout the years that have been similar to these listed.
To preface, I'll start a couple months ago, when I was in bed sick with the flu. On one of the worst nights in terms of being sick, I had this dream that I was out having a picnic mourning the loss of a family member out by the woods behind my house. I felt called to walk into a clearing that's there so I left my family, entered, and felt a presence within my dream lucidly.
I was looking around trying to find who was there and telling whoever it was to come out. I saw huge black wings passing behind trees and disappearing, kind of phasing in and out of sight. Finally, the being stepped out towards me, and I was surprised to find it was a tall man with jet black hair, incredibly pale skin and golden eyes. It sounds weird but I'm just making sure to be descriptive in case any comments ask to describe him.
He approached me and I instantly warmed up feeling this intense love and comfort and solace. I felt like I'd known him for ages and even walked up to him like I had, which is when he opened up his arms and hugged me. To be honest, it was really profound and I definitely cried because it felt so nice.
After we hugged, he pulled away and I saw this phial in his hand. It was opaque white liquid. He held it up and offered it to me which confused me. He said: "We could be together, you know. But make sure it's what you really want." I knew he meant in drinking the liquid, however dreams manage that. I also knew he meant that if I drank the liquid, I would 'die" and be transported to whatever plane he was existing on. I said no because of my family and I wanted to live. He respected that decision and stepped away, but I felt intense sadness coming from him. The dream ended when I left the woods.
Fast forward to now. I've been seeing this same person in dreams here and there. I also saw a swirling black mass in the corner of my room a few weeks ago in my peripheral vision. Then I felt someone plant their hand on my upper back while I was up having fun gaming. It startled me bad.
Just yesterday, I was taking notes at the computer for my history class (I'm homeschooled) when the stand holding my digital art pen suddenly and very clearly slid towards me. He'd mentioned my art before in some dream or some telepathic communication beforehand, I just don't really remember how. When the pen stand slid, I wasn't even alone - my family was there, too. Nothing like that has ever happened before so obviously right in front of my eyes.
Last night I went to bed and was having yet another dream about this black haired man. The setting was bizarre and sparkly, kind of etheric, almost, but it was all really hazy and weird. I saw his face sort of fading in and out when I heard his voice, disembodied from what I was seeing, say, "I've come for you. I'm here for you right now."
That startled me out of the dream. I looked around my room to make sure no one was in there, which there wasn't, nothing out of the ordinary happened. So, I went back to bed. But this morning, I woke up with a single thin scratch on my chest a few inches above my heart. It's too thin to be my own nails, I don't sleep with pets, and there was nothing sharp on my bed.
I don't know what to make of all of this. Can someone help? I'm torn about what I should do. Any clarity would be appreciated. Sorry for the super long post, I just wanted to get it all out in one place.
