Awareness in a Dream

In August of 1999 my good friend Rob was traveling north on the interstate along with 4 others. He had acquired his drivers license only a week prior. While en route he lost control of the SUV, and struck the median. The vehicle rolled numerous times, during which he along with the front seat passenger were ejected and died at the scene. The three that were in the back were injured but survived possibly due to the fact that they were wearing seat belts.


Approximately three months after the accident, I had this dream.

I was with two of my friends outside of their homes (they lived across from each other). A gray sedan pulled up in front of us, and behind the wheel was my friend Rob. I asked him If he could give us a ride back to my house, which was approximately 1/4 mile away. He smiled and nodded his head "yes". We entered the vehicle and began traveling towards my home. I don't recall exactly what we were conversing about, but we were laughing and having a good time. Rob did not talk, just smiled. It seemed that we were driving for miles, even though I live fairly close. When we arrived at my home we exited the car, but Rob stayed behind at the wheel. I walked over to the drivers side and asked him if he wanted to come in. He looked very sad, and shook his head, "no". Again, he did not speak whatsoever. I noticed he was not wearing his seat belt. I said to him, "Ok. Well, put your seat belt on, otherwise you'll end up dead." I then slapped myself in the forehead and said, "Oh yeah that's right, you're already dead." I walked around the front of the car and his eyes followed me. I clearly remember the sadness in his eyes. That's when it ended.

This dream has haunted me for nearly ten years. I thought I would share this in order to understand whether or not we exist beyond death. I've had many dreams that I find strange, and that I can attribute to life events. This one I'm not too sure about. I've always felt that there was something more to it, and not just because it was a tragic event involving my friend.

I've never died & come back. I am a natural lucid dreamer however and have experienced a lot of stuff many wouldn't believe & then some. One thing I've learned from dreams is that yes, our consciousness is eternal & is non-local.

Yes we can sometimes reunite with those who have passed on in dreams as well as a bunch of other stuff. But that's when you start getting into categorizing of experiences into "modalities" I guess you can say.

Don't let this one haunt you buddy, one way or another your friend was there to let you know that he's fine and was missing you a bit(and you him I'm sure) but either way; there he was existing as "real" as any other experience we might have here while "alive" at "camp human" as I call it.

The more you allow that possibility to be your reality, the more likely you are to maybe have experiences where you can consciously interact & ask your friend these questions yourself.
