Topic: small children and nightmares
When my son was only two or three weeks old, he started having nightmares. What horrible memories could a 2 week old have that would give him night terrors? Well, besides the fact that his stupid mommy let the doctors circumcise him...Maybe that was it in the beginning.
But here we are 5 years later and I suspect different things now. I'm beginning to wonder if his earliest nightmares weren't past life memories. Anything's possible, I guess.
He has had many bad dreams in his little lifetime. Bizarre, some of them. But lately, I'm getting a little worried about a recurring dream he's been having. They started several months ago, and last night before he fell asleep he said that the reason he doesn't get much rest is because of the same dream he keeps having.
The dream is of massive flooding. Every time. He has had this dream too many times to count, and I figure he hasn't even told me of every one of them. Last night I asked him if the flooding was just here at our house, or what. He said, 'No, the flooding is everywhere.'
Okay, well, that just scares me a little. He's never been in a flood and never really seen them, except for maybe a couple that have been on one of the learning shows (like dinos and animal shows, and such). And honestly, his imagination is like mine; not very active or vivid... And it's not like we talk about natural disasters around here.
I live in an area of the US that I have seen under water in some maps of the 'future' earth conditions. Ya know, the ones that show the lay of the land if some catastrophic event were to happen. From the Great Lakes down the middle of the country to the bottom of the states, there is a huge river, like 2 states wide, starting up by Canada and extending to the Gulf. We are in an area that used to be flooded by the sea many moons ago. You can find shark teeth and shells in our riverbeds here. This was definetely under water at some point in the earth's history. And of course, the whole earth has been flooded in the past, and who's to say it won't happen again?
So, is he dreaming of a future or is he dreaming of a past life where he was in a flood? I don't know...The way the shit is hitting the fan, he could be forseeing the future.
I'm not sure, but I know I don't like this one bit. I'm really trying to stay in center with this. No real paranoia on my part, but it sure is making me think...I don't want to stay in this particular area anyways, but I don't have anywhere else to go, until I find the person of my dreams and can move far away from here, that is.
So last night, to lighten things up a little, I told him that maybe we should buy a boat....
BTW, this small one knows nothing of what I have been studying for the past couple years, as in all this esoteric metaphysical stuff. So it's not like I'm just rubbing off on him.
I don't expect much of a response. I just needed to tell someone about that, and hopefully find someone else with the same experiences right now, or whatever...
