I am completely baffled by this experience and I would like to see if anyone has any ideas as to what it might be. I've considered the possibility that it may be a residual haunting, but the urgency and the powerful emotions I felt associated to this experience suggest otherwise. My house is fairly new so there really isn't much history I can offer on it (it was built in 2002, I believe.)
I was lying on my bed last night, engrossed in an exciting book (similar to Indiana Jones, but with a female protagonist.) My younger brother was in his room next door to mine and my mom was playing a game on her computer two rooms down from us while she waited for my dad to come home. No one else was in my room, and the door was wide open. I did not have any music playing and the TV was off. My brother's door was shut and he was quiet.
Out of nowhere, my vision goes completely black. That alone was enough to scare the living daylights out of me, but then I see the image of a woman with short blond hair and blue eyes. She was wearing plain clothes... Just jeans and a t-shirt, really. She looked to be in her early twenties. She was very pretty, but I noticed that her hair was disheveled and her skin was dirty. For whatever reason, I had the distinct impression that she'd been involved in some sort of traffic accident. Her demeanor was very urgent, like whatever she was about to say to me was of grave importance.
The only thing she said to me was "you have to warn Taylor. Tell him that the thing he's been afraid of, it's going to happen soon."
Then this vision or whatever it was, faded and left me laying there on the bed with the book still in my hands like nothing ever happened.
And the best part?
I don't know anyone named Taylor. Can someone help me with this? Does anyone know someone named Taylor who has a deep fear that something bad is going to happen to them? I really hope I can figure this out. I feel so bad for that woman. Whoever she was, she really wanted me to warn this "Taylor," I just really have no idea who he is. I'm not under a whole lot of stress and I wasn't asleep at all. Any ideas?
Thank you for reading.

I recently spoke with my fiancé about the woman and her plea for me to warn Taylor, and he gave me a queer little grin and said, "I know a Taylor." I asked him who, and he said that his ex-fiancé's current husband's name is Taylor. It's a stretch, but the man is blond-haired guy who seems to be quite close in description to the girl that I saw. Coincidentally, his ex-fiancé noticed him online the other day and struck up conversation with him for the first time since he and I got together. These events seem a little too coincidental, don't you think?
Thanks to everyone who helped me out with this.
