Beyond DreamsI have always been a strong believer in my prayers and my dreams. I just never knew how much they meant to me until my friend Eric died last New Years. After going to his funeral, I still couldn't face the fact that he was gone. He was suspected of killing himself, but I couldn't see that. I thought he was murdered, for many reasons because he loved life and all the people in it.
I have been reluctant to share this with the world but here it goes.... The night after his funeral, I prayed to God. I begged the Lord to take Eric's spirit with him in heaven and to make sure he was safe.
That night I had a dream. I heard his voice but I couldn't see him. He was thanking me for everything I had done for him and telling me that everything was going to be ok. Then I saw him. He was so beautiful with this aura of light around him. He looked like an angel and I cried at the sight of him. I told him that I missed him as I wept. He just looked at me, smiled, and wiped my tears away. I didn't ever want to wake up. And before I did I heard him say to me, "I didn't kill myself."
I woke up gasping for air and my body was soaked in sweat and tears. I had many dreams after that. I saw him every time in white standing within a tunnel of light. Then one night I asked God to show me what happened to Eric, and he did. There I was again in the same dream but this time Eric was pointing at something in the distance. There I saw a man holding a gun, but his face was blurred. He pointed it at him and then the gun went off. There I saw Eric laying on the ground, bleeding, but still alive. I heard fighting voices. They were arguing over what they were going to tell the cops..... I looked to the Eric next to me and started to cry, for him and all of his sorrow. But again he just smiled and kissed me lightly on the forehead. This was my last dream of him.
A couple of days after the dream the man suspected of killing Eric died. He killed himself by oding on drugs. It made me think....but I already knew because God had showed me. I still miss Eric and I will love him always. I hope that God will allow me to see him again some day. Perhaps in another time all together
