Now, I have a number of stories that I would like to share in this thread, but first I want to ask the community one question:
Are waking dreams real? Are they really dreams? Or are we seeing something that is really there?
I will start by saying that I personally do not have many first-hand experiences with 'waking dreams', but I do not doubt that I've experienced one
or two in my life.
The reason I am creating this thread is because of something that happened to my father about a year or so back, perhaps a little over a year by
There was a time in 2011 where my father was literally suffering from what he was calling 'waking dreams', I knew nothing of the subject and
phenomena back then, but once he began calling his paranormal experiences by that name, I decided to research it a bit.
I will share some of the things that happened with my father, from my perspective as well as his that he has shared with me.
The first time this happened, my younger brother and I were in the basement of my dad's house where I lived, we were playing PS3 and he was just
about to go upstairs to his own room, basically around the time my younger brother was about to say goodnight, there was a loud bang upstairs right
above where him and I were. Thinking about the layout of the house, the bang would have happened either in my father's bedroom doorway, or right in
my father's room. Two seconds or so after this loud bang, my father woke up screaming. In shock, my brother and I looked at each other for a moment,
then I decided we should run up and check on him.
My father didn't say anything about it, but when I opened up his bedroom door he was getting out of his bed, I asked him what happened, he said
"nothing," started to chuckle nervously and said, "but I need to piss after that." he went to the washroom and back to bed...
The next morning, curious, I asked my dad over the phone what had happened. He was at work at the time and kept his answer pretty short, he said
something along the lines of, "I woke up and there was this white face staring right at me as I opened my eyes".
Now, I was rather creeped out as I had evidence and experiences already that lead me to believing that his house is haunted.
We tried to shrug the whole experience off, but it continued to happen, and after the second time he began saying it was just waking dreams. He
didn't know they existed until he had these experiences.
The second time it happened, the experience as a witness was very similar, there was a loud bang, and my dad woke up yelling again, this time there
was a man in a lumberjack jacket at the end / the foot of his bed.
The third time, it was another similar experience, loud bang, and a white face staring at him directly in front of his eyes as he opened them.
My question is, if these are simply just "waking dreams" and they are only happening to him, and they're all just in his mind, then what is this
loud bang we (my brother and I) continued to hear right before he woke up yelling? Where does this bang come from? What is it?
My mother used to have waking dreams as well, except we lived in a house that was a well known haunted house in the area, many neighbourhood folk
heard many stories about it, etc. I can share some tales of living in that home when the time is right, and I'm certain I will soon enough.
As I was saying, my mother woke up one night instantly, sat up and saw a shadow figure at the end of her bed, she recently told me this story and even
described this figure as having wearing one of the older time hats, just like in many shadow people drawings. My mother does not like the paranormal,
holds no interest in it and is not much of a believer, she doesn't research the stuff, and she described the hat just like many others do as well.
She woke up, there it was, she fell asleep instantly after noticing it. She felt terrified, but fell asleep immediately.
She woke up again shortly after, wide awake and sitting up, the shadow figure was closer. She fell asleep immediately.
She woke up once more, and the shadow figure was beside her but looking in the other direction, she said that what she felt is indescribable, but
there was conflict between two forces. She said there was a battle between good and evil happening around her, and she could not see the good, but it
was there. She said she lay awake just feeling this for however long, and fell asleep immediately after the conflict faded.
Was this a waking dream? She doesn't believe so, and she also remembers feeling the same conflict one day while making dinner in the kitchen. There
are many stories I'd like to tell of being in that house, I promise to one day within the new year.
Anyway, what is a waking dream? Are they really all in our head? Are they real? Are we able to communicate with other dimensions / beings when we are
in the sleeping state of mind?
I have many questions on the subject, and would like to hear some of your opinions as well as stories, etc.
