Death Dreams, Part ... whatever
If my dreams are a reliable indicator, my aunt will pass away in the next two weeks or so. She’s been sick for a while now, so this isn’t a surprise, and there’s nothing anyone can do about it.
FWIW, historically these dreams have been like this:
- I saw one aunt die while getting on a bus. She didn’t die that way, but she did die very shortly after that dream. It was like the bus was some sort of metaphor.
- A grandmother died, but I don’t remember the details of what I saw before then.
- A grandfather died, and two weeks before that I had a dream of him and me on a golf course, his favorite thing, and then he turned and walked away.
- A couple of uncles died ... I don’t remember those details, other than getting the usual two weeks’ notice.
In other dreams I also accurately predicted my father-in-law passing out, which he had never done before, and possibly helped to keep him alive when I got a dream of his pending death — a preventable death.
The worst one for me was seeing a dog die. That was months before he passed away after a stroke, but that dream was no metaphor. It was more like a horribly vivid vision of what would later happen.
In the case of my aunt, I had a series of dreams this week of her and the house she used to live in 10-15 years ago. I’ve never had those before in my life, so while my Spidey Sense isn’t as good as it used to be, I assume that place holds pleasant memories for her, and that’s what this is about.
My aunt's granddaughter died of a drug overdose less than 48 hours after I wrote this, and the nurses expect my aunt to pass away before the end of the month.
