Possible ‘Twilight Zone’ Occurance.....
I need my doctor to adjust my medications.....

Had insomnia a few nights ago so I was sitting on the sofa
Watching tv, but I started to doze off and my eyes closed.. I’m guessing that as I began to doze off my head started to sink down toward my chest, but that small head movement made me begin to wake up. In those 2 seconds as I opened my eyes I saw my Golden Retriever ‘Blue’ trotting toward me, wagging his tail, then ‘pouf’ visual gone! I sat there trying to wrap my head around what I saw for those 2 seconds......did NOT see Rod Serling nor hear the ‘Twilight Zone’ theme music, and ‘Blue’ has been deceased for 10 years. I was NOT dreaming of the dog and wasn’t even thinking of him.....well,
Should I make an appointment to see a therapist?? Or just rack it up to some sort of Freudian moment of sub-conscience hysteria?

Well, not hysteria, I think. Possibly a "waking dreamstate"? You say you weren't dreaming, but the waking might have been part of the dream...weird stuff, but come on, the brain, starved of various "-phins", is a weird state! 😊. Next time it could be Jason Momoa...just don't allow him to speak. Please. 😊

I agree with VCESS. Possibly a waking dream? I had some similar type sleep/hallucination things happen when I was a young adult. Forget what the doctor called it. Sleep paralysis, maybe? Said not to worry about it, that they were common and I would 'grow out' of it. If it worries you, or it keeps happening, you could talk to your doctor about it. Good luck. (Ha-ha! Jason Momoa! VCESS, you're a nut, lol!) :-)

I like to think that there are things in this world that we can't explain. Pam

This isn’t the first time this has happened...about 5 years ago, EXACTLY same situation occurred, including where I was sitting on the sofa....with the exception of what I saw which was a thin tall man dressed in a brown business suit with a hat ( circa late 1950’s) and carrying a briefcase in his left hand; he was walking briskly from right to left as though he had a business appointment......again it was only a 2-second View......
I wonder if My sofa is haunted.....
Has anyone else experienced this?

You are not "nuts". I truly believe that there are occurrences that simply can't be explained through logic. V is going to send me to the asylum for sure now! Pam

I agree with Pam, I think sometimes things happen that we can't explain. A few days after my Dad died, I woke up from a dream about him and I swear that for a few seconds he was sitting on the edge of my bed touching my cheek. I guess I still could of been dreaming but I like to think it was his way of saying goodbye since I wasn't with him when he passed. I haven't had an experience or anything like that happen since and he passed in 1992.

Sure, stuff happens that can't be explained logically. And people will believe what they're going to believe...the only person you have to satisfy is yourself. But if you tell others, do it under an alias! D'is is da' place! 😃

Bermuda, one story. When my mom was in her late 20's she was told she had breast cancer. Of course, she was scared to death and even though she was already scheduled for surgery, my dad convinced her to have a second opinion. Before that happened, she dreamed of her grandmother who had passed away. Her grandmother came to her in that dream and told her that she had nothing to worry about. It was not her time yet and for my mom to be at peace. Well, she had the second opinion and had cysts which she had off and on all her life. Was my mom crazy? No. And my mom was normally a very "practical" person, whatever that is. Do I believe in the unexplained? You bet. Pam

I just had a CT scan of my brain a few months ago because of the incident up in the attic, remember? when the heavy container fell and knocked me silly on the side of my head... but what you are telling me reassures that I’m not the only recipient of ‘unusual’ occurrences....
by: Bermuda on 05/16/19
No, you are not. I have had times in my life that I have had occurrences that I could not scientifically explain if I wanted to. I am relieved that we do have these instances. That is what is great about the mystery of life. Can you see the wind? No. You can see the tree leaves and branches blow. Pam
