In The Nick Of Time
This dream happened many years ago, but recalling the experience still gives me psychic shivers.
I dreamed about a man who had been in a car wreck. The man told me he was going to die. He told me, “I don’t want to live. Let me go.”
I awoke crying and was upset all day. However, nothing happened to anyone I knew – so I thought perhaps this was not happening in my reality. This is sometimes the case.
I was moving and getting settled. The next morning there was a knock on the door. It was a new neighbor who wanted me to check in on his roommate who had been in a car accident. My new neighbor needed to get to work and I needed to take my daughter to school, so I told my neighbor that I would check in on his roommate later.
He left his door unlocked and I went in after taking my daughter to school. I quietly went up the stairs and walked into the bedroom. There was a man in bed with his head swollen to the size of a basketball. As I got closer to him, I saw that his teeth had been knocked out on one side. He had dried blood on his face and was lying propped up on the pillow. I walked over to him and I sat down on the edge of the bed and touched him. He opened his eyes.
I knew he needed medical help. I asked him if he wanted me to take him to the hospital and he shook his head just enough to say no. I got some warm water and washed off some of the blood from his face. I told him he needed help and his reply to me was, “No, I am going to die here, just let me die here.”
Suddenly, I realized that this was the man in my dream. I called his roommate, but was unable to reach him.
I could see the injured man was not breathing deeply, and his eyes kept rolling back in his head. He seemed to fade in and out. I started looking around to find phone numbers. I knew his name because his roommate had given it to me and the name and contact numbers for his family. I placed a call to them, and his dad, who lived out of state, said he was on his way. I called 911 and the ambulance was there in no time. The men worked on him right there in the room and agreed that he needed to come to the hospital. He was in bad shape.
Later, this man from my dream told me he had had a near death experience. He dreamed that an angel told him that he had to go back. I believe that the angel warned me in my dream so I could get help to this man in time.
