My Own Reflection


I don't know if this is much of a ghost story but here it goes. I grew up in Dominican Republic and lived in the same neighborhood for a long time. I have experienced a few things but nothing has scared me like the story I am about to tell you.

I have a very close friend. I have known him since I was 11 and he was 10. He is closer to me than my own brother. We were together most of the time. He had ghostly experiences at his house and so did I. One night when I was 13 he asked me to sleep at his house since he did not want to be home alone, so I agreed, nothing unusual happened that night, so we both fell asleep comfortably until I had a dream.

I dreamt that we were already a little older maybe 20 (I am 26 now). We were walking through the neighborhood like always, down certain street that we must walk to get from the main avenue to our houses. Suddenly we saw a body lying on the ground, facing down; the body was wearing a blue denim jacket. We decided to approach the body and see if the person was okay but somehow we knew that he was already dead, even though there was no blood on his body.

As we approached the body I knelt down to have a better look and my friend told me to flip him over just to check if he was okay but when I flipped him over (this is scary part)... It was me. I had a dead ME in my arms if it makes any sense.

To better explain this dead guy was me but I was picking myself up. That's when I woke up. I fell asleep again until the next morning and the funny thing is that my friend tells me that he had a weird dream and explains everything to me before I could tell him about my dream. It turned out that we both had the same dream about me. We both have moved since and sometimes I have been back to that street, but it still scared to walk at nigh time trough there.

Any feedback please.

I can relate to you, one night I had a dream about a man name mr williams and he was all bloody. When I went to school I told my principal since he was the only man I knew at that time with that last name, he laughed and said I went to sleep with my belly too full because as I can see nothing happen to him. After school when I was close to home I saw the ambulance on the opposite side to where I lived. I ask my neighbor Mrs Browne what happened, she said this boy who was renting a house in the yard with his mother beat up Mr. Williams in his head I turn to her and tell her I didn't know he name Mr williams she said yes, I told her my dream, the next day I told my principal and he couldn't believe it. The next thing is that I don't like being around people, besides school I don't go anywhere, because when I am around people I tend to feel what they are feeling and it isn't a good feeling and I don't watch people in their faces when I am speaking to them, someone I get lost and is like I can see through them. Sometimes I wish I was dead because of what I am experiencing, it is weird and I don't have people who I can truly talk to who wouldn't think I am crazy.

Thanks to everybody for their feedback. This is what I found out.

To dream of your own death, indicates a transitional phase in your life. You are becoming more enlightened or spiritual. Alternatively, you are trying desperately to escape the demands of your daily life.

do your dreams have any past history of predicting the future? It could be that you can predict the future, but you don't consciously know it yet.
If your dream really was a prediction, don't worry, I don't think it means you're going to die. Dreams are all about symbolism. They're like riddles. Nothing is ever straightforward.
If you want to pursue this further I would suggest writing down all your dreams and finding an online dream dictionary and trying to decode the symbols.
Good luck with this and I hope you find some answers!

wow...that is scary. Well I think that your dream is telling you that you need to be careful of what's around you. I hope I help!
