The Night the Spirit Woke Me Up
I’ve written this article while thinking about my spirit encounter experience that happened at my wife’s grandparents' place in a small village in Poland’s countryside. But I hope I've written this with an understanding that I really can’t explain what happened to me on that summer’s night.
Hi, hope you are all well, would love to read about your spirit encounter also. I've had an experience with a spirit only once that happened in Poland about fifteen years ago. My wife and I had been staying at her grandparents’ house for a few weeks in a small town in Southern Poland. They lived on a farm not far from the town’s main street. That spirit gave me the biggest hug for a few minutes while I was sleeping.
It was a very weird sensation. It was an amazing experience. Would like to know more about why and how this happened to me. I knew for sure I wasn’t dreaming, yet it felt so real.
I’m amazed at how real the pressure felt on my body felt. The feeling was firm yet comforting. I couldn't hear any words being spoken; it lasted just for a few short minutes only.
Before this event, I was quite skeptical on spirits, ghosts.
Now I'm a firm believer. It felt so real for it to be a dream. A dream that had me dreaming with a spirit hugging.
I really do think that life is so fragile, that on any given day, a life-changing event could and does happen to many, many people on any given day. So the spirit World always surrounds us in its own type of way. I personally think if one has an open mind, it allows the spirit to connect with us a lot easier
The event of meeting my encounter
I've had dreams that are so real, that when you wake up one has to pinch oneself.
I do wonder if there is any connection with the other side through dreams. I'm sure some of you have had dreams of someone that has passed away, yet in the dreams, they seem as real, as reality lives in dreams.
I’m Interested if you had ever made any connection with a spirit from your past. Have you ever had an actual conversation with someone during that dream? Have you ask them what it like is to be on the other side. Personally, I haven't had this encounter. Would really love to read your feedback on this issue.
Dream time, for example, is an English word that Aboriginals use to describe contact with one’s ancestral spirits. But the Aboriginal people really haven't a direct meaning of the word dream time, thus, they had many different words from different regions from Australia that relate to the word dream time.
There is no actual spelling orthodoxy of this word because native speakers did not write down Aboriginal languages, in the form of books, but used rock art language instead.
'The Dreaming' or 'the Dream time' indicates a psychic state in which or during which contact is made with the ancestral spirits.
With thousands of years of history regarding spiritual life, the Aboriginal people have great respect for this spirit culture. Yet many in our Western culture regard spirits as a form of a scary Ghost.
The spirit life...

I absolutely believe. There can't be no point to life at all, there just can't be. Besides that, I've had an encounter or two myself. Interesting hub. :)

I like your topic about the after life experiences ; the strange things. We see. Pictures show real experiences. I believe; you need two extra pictures in your hub. A few words with other encounters, it will give your hub an extra credit. Good luck to you.

This was an interesting read. I don't really believe that it's the spirits of the dead or 'those passed on' communicating but I do believe that Angels to communicate with us and sometimes they do strange stuff just to let us know they're there watching over us and protecting us. Does that make sense?
By the way yes I have met a few 'Angels' like that, sometimes they saved my life!

It's always nice when spirits take time to join us on the earth plane.

I loved reading your experience. There was a time in my life when I was going through a really tough time and was feeling really sad and lonely. I decided to take up walking and made it a daily ritual.
On the second day when I was out on a walking path there was no one around. I was by myself. And I smelled my grand fathers cologne that he wore. I knew he was with me and I suddenly felt his powerful presence and love surround me.
He came around a couple other times after that but then it stopped. But my spirits were much higher. So I'm thinking I just didn't need him to help get me through.

This was an interesting experience Mick. My brother often had the feeling that an old woman was sitting on him while he slept. He said he was unable to move, scream out or get up until he felt the weight lift from his body.

I have lived in the spirit world for many years and appreciate the communication that is constantly available from the other side. What you experienced was real. Many people have the experiences and ignore them. I glad you recognized them and embraced them. You may have movaited me to write about it. If you want more experiences....meditate and ask.

When I dated a man several years after my husband passed away, we were out to do dinner one night. When we first sat down, I looked at the man and there were the eyes of my husband looking out at me. They didn't have the sparkle my husband always had, but a pale look. I took it as my husband approving of my dating, but later I think it was a warning to be careful because this man turned out to be an abused.

Interesting hub and I really like what you have here. I cannot say I have experienced this phenomenon. Good information to know all the same. Welcome to HP!

Amazing experience, thanks for sharing.

I have, years a go when sleeping. It was the strangest thing. I could see myself sleeping and then felt myself move back into my body. I woke up in the morning and started to question if it was a dream or not.
