I know the timing is convenient with Halloween and all.. but I had the worst experience ever last night and have no idea how to explain it.
I was sleeping and I felt something on my shoulder - I looked up and it was my grandmother saying "I just wanted to tell you I love you before I leave" .. I said 'I love you too' and started to shut my eyes. Then reality hit and I said "wtf, my grandmothers dead, I guess I'm dreaming" and opened my eyes again and seriously saw a shadow of her head and shoulder walking out my bedroom door AND the bedroom door was open, and we always sleep with it shut because we run the AC and want to keep it in the room. I called my mom freaking out at 4am asking if everything was okay in the house, because it just freaked me out majorly.. My heart was pounding.
Today actually would have been my grandmothers birthday, so I am trying to justify all of this by saying it was all a dream and she was on my mind subliminally because of it being her birthday today. However, at the time it felt more than real, and still sort of does.
Weird dream, or something else?
edit: possible way to explain door being open - our cat is practically human and occasionally if he tries hard enough can open door handles. he's done it once or twice before, but we normally hear a lot of noise as he makes 1000 jump attempts to get it open.
