the first experience i had happened in a dream...i was laying on my bed on the phone with erin...i told her that i was sorry and that i loved her, she replied by saying that she knew that i was sorry and that she loved me too...then i felt like a pressure on top of me like she was laying on my back, and i reached back as if to touch her but i knew she wasn't physically there but i knew she was there with me none the less...i woke up shortly after that feeling very relieved and excited, i knew she came to me in my dream.
experience happened yesterday...this time i was dreaming that i was in my house
and my friends told me that erin had spent the night in my bed with
me...confused that i didn't remembered her being there, i went back to my room
and there she was laying on my bed smoking a cigarette like she used to do...i
just crawled up and laid on top of her and embraced her...feeling very
relieved...i thanked her for coming to see me...shortly after i woke up and felt
compelled to document the experience in a journal.
