I need to build my story with other experiences to get to the experience of which I would most love to share with you, so please be patient.
I realise my experiences are not unique and hope you too will share yours.

Since I can remember I have had experiences which by logic should not be possible.
One evening when very young my brothers and I were sat on a sofa, our Father was talking to us. A really strange feeling came over me - I knew exactly every word he was going to speak before he actually did so.
It was like I was remembering and looking at myself sat there with my brothers on the sofa. Even tiny details such as Mom in the corner of my eye and her movements were predictable if you like. It felt strange and I wondered if I was somehow dreaming. I just accepted the experience and said nothing to any.

As a child I was known as very sceptical and challenged any oddities outside the norm of every day life. I was known as being a most stubborn child.
One Christmas my Grandmother had wrapped up a present for me and left it under the tree - As usual me and my Bros snook downstairs in the early hours to open our gifts. When I came to open Grandmas gift I realised it was a book - I thought Oh shucks its not chocolate - The book had a picture of a circus clown on it but I coud not make out the title as my reading skills were in their pure infancy - Why had she given me a book I could not read I wondered - I asked my older Bro what the title was "Doubting Thomas" came the reply. Of course that meant nothing to me until later years when I understood the term.

I had dreams about the most mundane things in my youth - these dreams came to be so in reality.
One example being that I dreamt the church youth club (though I was far from religous) had got a set of new snooker cues - next day I go down and hey presto there they are just as I had seen them in my dream.

I had a very close afffinity with a woman C------- . I used to go out for a drink and socialise with C and her partner.
I innocently said to them in the company of other friends - "Oh! I had a dream that you were pregnant last night C" The look on their faces was real shock and they quickly hushed me up and confided in me that they had just found out C was indeed expecting but wished to keep it secret until they married. C later told me that it was so strange as she had conceeded one evening whilst we were all away on a country side break - she said "Dont you remember the look you gave me that night - it was so penetrating I shall never forget it".Like I said I had and do have a very deep affinity with C and she confided many things to me in later years claiming who she was and who I was in past times - It all rang so true as I had such thoughts but put them on the back burner so to speak.

Sorry if this is a slow build up but I just want to ensure you know I am totally sincere - There are many other such incidents but I will tell you of 2 more before I speak of my mind blowing experience.

One night I lay asleep next to my girl friend. I fell into dream - It was the first time in dream I had become aware I was actually dreaming - I recall walking down my girl friends street and I was thinking wow this is actually real, in fact this is super real - I was greatly excited as for me this was proof of things I now believe in.
So there I am going up to girl friends door all excited and thinking - I must tell gf this its all true and so amazing.
I walk up the stairs then see myself asleep next to gf - I was viewing from above so to speak - I suddenly feel myself fall into my body and in the same instant I awake and nudge my sleeping girl friend and excitedly tell her what had just occured - She of course looked at me like I was stark raving mad and simply turned over back to sleep.

I had a profound dream in later years - I will not go into all the details as some are very personal.
I found myself walking on a road with water (sea) either side of this raised pathway. There was a companion with me whom I did not look at or see but knew they were with me. I asked my companion "Where are we" "In Scotland and Wales" came the reply - Now just to explain Scotland is 100s of miles from Wales.
I thought little of it - There were many more details which I shall not include. When I awoke the dream was so powerfull that it actually disturbed me due to some of the details. Some years later I was traveling with friends and we came to cross The Churchill Barrier In the Orkney Isles. BANG my dream was broken I was on the road with the sea either side of it just as I had dreamed. I realised the dream I had had two yeras prior had come to pass - For I had travelled up from Wales where I had moved a year prior. I told my friends who were with me but it meant little to them. There were other details that were exactly as I had dreamed such as buildings and other smaller details.

Now to my most mind blowing dream.
Because I had had dreams that came true so often I realised that there is more at play than we can imagine.
I was on a search for truth and made an inward plea to whatever is bigger than you and I to show me real proof of life after death. Some time later I had such a dream - It was super real and so wonderful that words fall short.
In this dream I realised I was being shown another dimension where soul abides - It was actually like waking up from a dream - Into a place I can only describe as living light - The sense of well being and peace was beyond my Earthly understanding - The environment was alive and pulsed with possibilitys - Like I say words fall short.
I was not in an earthly body yet the being that is I was in some other sort of form which was formless and able to be anywhere and everywhere - I had a very dear friend with me and we communicated by simply a knowing of how we were and felt - It was truly the most amazing experience I have ever had - More real than what we think real is and so beautiful. Next day I spoke to my good friend about the dream and he just gazed at me and said Yes - I had that dream also last night.
I now believe that I was being shown something and realise that through my studies and endevours that this place is a transit realm - a resting place along the way to the true realm of soul/Home.

That gave me chills. You are being shown something very special. Have you discovered the reason for the visions and/or projections?

Yes but only partly as with all our experiences it is like an unfolding.
There are many things I can only share with close friends as it would not be believed and undermine other things I would wish to share more generally.
Regarding that particular dream - For me it was enough to put aside my sceptisim and believe in myself and the things I am shown.
That particular dream was a piece of a more overall picture regarding soul or spirituality or whatever we want to call it.
I have attempted to paint my dreams but of course paintings are nothing near the true experience.
I had a dream which I painted which I felt showed me something else also.
I found myself in a sort of space I can only describe as inbetween.
I looked to my side and downwards - my thoughts told me I was viewing the whole Universe - It was like a starry blue lake below me - Though nothing of stars or galaxies were clear as it sort of pulsed like the whole thing was alive. It was truly beautiful and awe inspiring sort of suspended in a space but not space like we imagine space to be. It suddenly dawned on me that what I was viewing was a reflection and that the source of its light was above me.Something inside me clicked so to speak and I felt total at peace but as I turned to view up towards the source of the light something stopped me and I found myself above the Earth and descended to a place called The White Cliffs of Dover which is the south of England - There was a most terrible storm of storms lashing the shore amd tearing great chunks of the land away - there was more but I will not go into detail - It was A Wake up call for me and since then my mind has become more focused and prepared for changes to come.
I would just like to add that I believe this Inbetween place leads to the transit realms of which I speak.

Very interesting.....

The more I learn the less I know. Maybe I should quit trying to learn?

I feel yours is an open minded way of considering things which are difficult to explain.
I bet you have had things occur that are hard to explain.
My only explanation to the dreams etc I mentioned is - That it has shown me there is something greater than you and I at play - yet we are deeply connected to it - What name should we give it - maybe it can not be labeled.
Without wishing to sound like a know all I would like to say that I have learnt it is useless striving or wanting knowledge - We should merely be preparde to recieve and if so we are shown or guided to things that we need not want to know. My dreams are a tool for me in my life and I have learnt Dreams are a most valuable tool
