I posted this in the misc as well but I most likely won't get any serious replies there so i'll post it here as well. I think this is important and that someone is trying to tell me something.
A little bit about why I think this is important:
-I have insomnia, and this is the first time I have gotten sleep before 12pm(very tired for some reason) and the first dream I have had....which was I think called a 'lucid' dream.
-My parents leave for their holiday today(this will make sense when I tell you about the dream)
Also, please don't be idiots, this is the strangest dream i've ever experienced(why I'm posting it on a forum....i don't know), i'm being serious, just see what you can make of it. There are no cliffs.
Ok, so the dream:
In this dream I woke up on a strange beach at nighttime, it was beautiful but very eerie, it was really peaceful but it was way too silent for my liking, I couldn't hear anything but the slow crashing of the waves.
I turned around to look behind me and my father was standing there with very pale skin....(in my dream I knew he was dead......he is alive IRL), I could feel the sand in my toes and the nice cool breeze, I could feel everything.
My dad walked over to me slowly and gave me a hug, his skin was very cold, but he had a kind smile on his face and made a joke about me having tears in my eyes(can't remember the joke). I laughed and we walked into a small hut on the beach, where my mother was talking to me while I sat in my chair talking to my father.....it was like she couldn't see my dad, she started saying "you need to get your footy gear washed and ready for tomorrow"- we always argue about how I don't need to be reminded, she was washing dishes and not looking at me while we were talking.
Dad said to me with a laugh "she still does that does she?" I laughed aswell and said "why can't she see you but I can?" - "I only appear to the person I am speaking to, mum will only see you sitting in the chair giving your normal responses and not see you talking to some invisible person in a chair, but you can see me and talk to me and also see her"
I was confused so dad took me for a walk on the beach outside, the beach had changed, in the sky there were like 4 or 5 moons(yes moons) one really massive one in the middle of the sky and other smaller moons in different directions, on top of the water hovering over it were beautiful little lights, flickering, moving slowly in the air above the water, their must have been millions of them. They were so strange looking. The wind had changed and was beautiful now, like on the most perfect night you've ever imagined.
I was in shock at all that changed and dad turned to me and said "you havn't asked me yet, I thought you would be more curious!" So I turned to him trying to hold back tears and asked "What's God like?" Dad said "He moves really really slow, these lights on top of the waves are what we look like when we rest, he is the brightest light, because he is the most enlightened spirit, he moves as though he is going somewhere, but he isn't worried about how long it will take to get there....he's got all the time ever created. He is very kind, like we used to think. He will often tell you "You did well today" "I'm proud of you" "That was very kind of you to do"- things like that, he doesn't exactly say them, but we all have a special connection with each other when we are in light where we do not need to speak."
[So all this time i'm feeling everything, it's amazing to me, but i also feel sad. I want to wake up out of my dream and see my father that is alive, but I also want to stay and find out more.]
I asked dad "What's it like to be dead?"
He says "We cannot cry, we can't show tears, we don't feel anger, we aren't worried, we are in harmony, we seek further happiness through true enlightenment(i think he said this, otherwise i can't remember) we can choose to appear to people, we can't hurt people. We reside in heaven, what you see now"
I asked him "why does heaven look like this, i thought it'd be different"
He said "i thought that too, but He(God I guess?) says to all those who join the light that new places are strange at first, but with every new place comes the possibility of a new home. Although it varies when we are the light, you do not see heaven the way we see it, but like all good things you will have to wait and see _____(he said my name and gave me his old cheeky smile)"
I looked out at the beach once more, it looked beautiful, but it seemed really eerie to me.
I woke up and was covered in cold sweat, so I went and had a shower and posted this, dad is asleep in the next room. I don't know if this is some sort of a sign(as he leaves with mum on a holiday on this exact day, and this is the first time I've really had a dream/sleep before 12pm in months-i usually sleep at 8-9am) or maybe this is just some stupid strange dream.
I don't know what the misc can make of this but there aren't any cliffs.
