Dreaming About Hair

About a month and a half ago, I began to have this reoccurring dream, well the dreams were all different, but the theme was the same. I would "come to" and be standing in a hair salon, behind the chair, with a customer in my chair and I was supposed to be doing this person's hair. I used to be a hairdresser, I did it for 11 years, but it's been that longer than that since I have done hair, at least professionally. When I stopped doing hair, I pretty much stopped for good, I let my license lapse, and I rarely do anyone's hair.

So each time I would dream about doing hair, I would be in a different salon, working on someone different, but my thoughts were pretty much the same, WHAT AM I DOING HERE???!!! I knew in the dream that I wasn't supposed to be there, I knew it had been YEARS since I've done hair. I would wonder how I got there, what I was supposed to be doing to this person in my chair, but my professionalism was still there, I couldn't allow this person to see how scared I was, I was there and this person expected to get their hair done, the last thing I wanted to do was worry them. The first dream was the worst, I woke up in a fright, glad that it was just a dream.

I began having these dreams several times a week. This went on for over a month, each time I was in a different salon, working on a different person, it was never anyone I knew, it was never in a salon I had worked in before. I knew that I could do the basics, but what if that person wanted me to do something more trendy? How would I know how to do something different than I was formerly trained how to do?

After a few weeks of having these dreams, I knew I was supposed to be "getting" something, I just didn't know what. I am not going to be doing hair, oh I cut Bob's hair, more like buzz it off with the clippers, and I have done a haircut on a friend's son, and a haircut on another friend, but other than that, I have not really done hair in years and have no plans on getting back into the biz.

One of the dreams I was working on an older lady, that was the one that scared me the most, I knew I wasn't supposed to be there, yet there I was. In another dream, I was working on a little boy of about 5, he was very hyper (I never liked working on young children, they moved and wiggled, it was difficult to to do a good haircut on them, yet their parents wanted to pay LESS for the haircut, the salon where I worked charged the same for kids as adults, I always HOPED they would leave instead of staying!), so I was cutting this little hyper boy's hair, his mom had a harness and leash on him to keep him from running off. Then she left to go shopping, I finished his haircut, went to the back for a minute, when I came out, the boy was gone! Fortunately I found him quickly and his mom was happy with his hair. In the last dream I had, an older man came in, he wanted a perm. He was completely bald on top, the hair he did have was already curly, and it was rather short. In the dream I didn't know what he wanted, usually at that point you have already had the consultation and know what you are supposed to be doing, I didn't want him to know that I had no clue what he wanted, so I made a snap decision on which perm rods to use based on the length of his hair, I grabbed the perm rods and began rolling. I realized that I would have to roll his hair in a different pattern than I was used to because of his bald head. I woke up after that.

I had realized that in each dream, I got a little more confident, less scared about what was going on, I would just start doing what I was supposed to do, "fake it 'till you make it", that was what we were taught in beauty school. Then it hit me. In the dreams, I was doing something that I hadn't done in a long time, something that I would be very rusty at doing but I knew that it would all come back to me. Sure I would have to re-learn a lot of things that I had forgotten, and I would have to learn some new things, but it would be OK.

This wasn't about doing hair, this is about the decision I made a couple of months ago. Several years ago I had put my spiritual interests "on hold", I didn't cut it off altogether, I just stopped pursuing it. A few months ago, I have had a renewed interested in developing my spiritual interests. I wasn't sure where to start, and I was somewhat concerned about being able to do those things again, would it all come back to me? Well my dreams were telling me not to worry, even though I hadn't done it in a long time, it would all come back to me, I would have to re-learn some things, I would learn new things, some of it would just naturally come back to me, but above all, don't worry about it. It's been over a week and no more dreams about hair, so I feel confident that I finally got the correct message.

I'll post more about what is going on my current life in the next few days. Things are going good and I am doing what I am supposed to be doing. :)

Mobile Home Spookies And An Update

Today, well technically yesterday now, I was asked to clean a mobile home that had just became vacant, it needed to be cleaned before the next tenants arrive. So I worked on getting the place detailed. I went in to a nearly empty place, fairly clean, it just needed some major detailing.

In pretty short order, I began to "feel" the place, normally I have to be in a place a few times before I start feeling anything in it. Not in this case, I began to feel things right away. I didn't actually see or hear anything, but I could sure feel something, or multiple somethings there. The only way I can explain it is it felt disconcerting, almost nightmarishly so. I would not want to spend the night in this place, sleeping would be impossible. Imagine being thrown into a place with lots of people moving around erratically and bumping into you, not like they are doing it on purpose, but it's still happening, that's how it felt there.

I know the person who did live there, this person seemed normal at first, but then started acting odd, this person it turned out was bi-polar, and not on medication. Things got real bad for this person, this person thought they could see demons, started thinking their friends were demons, let's just say it got real dicey for everyone involved, worse things happened but it's not necessary to give a laundry list of everything.

When I went in to clean, I wasn't thinking about any of this, I was concentrating on doing my job, and even after I started feeling the weird feelings there, I still didn't think about this person until later. I wonder if this is a residual of the energy from this person, or if it what may have caused this person to go off the deep end. I realize that the bi-polar condition was already present, so it's hard to say which came first. I wished I could have gone in there before this person lived there, I am curious about how that place felt before this person was around.

The more I think about it, the more I lean toward the energy being residual, I didn't feel anything intelligent, it just felt disconcerting, I imagine that is how this person felt inside. I will be cleaning this place again after the next people leave in about a week, maybe I can try to do something to clear the negative energy. BTW, that person is getting the help they need, I wish them well.

I spoke with my sister on the phone the other day, she had read my description of the dark, rolling cloud like thing in my neighbor's hall. She suggested that it may be something that she sees in her house. What she sees as a doorway or portal, it gets bigger and smaller, when it gets too big for her comfort level, she asks her husband to shrink it down, and he does. I don't know if this is what is in my neighbor's house, but it certainly is a possibility. I have seen portals or doorways before, that's not how they have appeared to me in the past, that doesn't mean it's not a doorway or portal though, I will keep my mind open about this.

Neighbor's House - Update

Things have been very quiet at my neighbor's house, in the last couple of weeks the entity in the hall (the one where I can see the top of the head walking back and forth) has been not present, the little dog Angel still shows herself on occasion, and the dark rolling shadow in the hall is still present.

There have been a few changes in that house, my neighbor had an accident at work and severely (chemically) burned his eyes, in the midst of all of this, a lady that he worked with started taking care of him while he convalesced. This is a lady that he had been interested in but couldn't get up enough nerve to ask her out. I have always believed that things happen for a reason, even if that reason isn't apparent, I believe this accident, as terrible as it was, was instrumental in bringing these two together, they didn't have to go through the akward first few dates, they completely bypassed all of that.

I talked to my neighbor last night to find out if he had detected any "activity" in the house, he said it had been quiet, I told him that I had been experiencing the same quietness. I suggested that it may be a case of his late wife (if that was the one in the hallway that I see walking around) might have hung around with the intention of watching over him, and now, that isn't needed, he has someone there to take care of him, perhaps it was her time to move on, my neighbor agreed and we all considered it a good thing.

I'll still be looking for the other entities that I know are there, but I suspect that I will not be seeing the one in the hallway, I'll keep you updated. :)

My neighbor's eyes are healing up nicely, one word of advice, if you are unclogging a drain using a chemical drain cleaner, be sure to put the lid back on as soon as you use it, NEVER set it down on sink or tub with the lid off, if you accidentally knock it over, you will be sorry!

Assumptions Can Be Wrong...

You should never judge a book by its cover, or so they say. In the last month, I have been surprised to find out that 2 people I have talked to believed in the paranormal, these two people seemed, on the outside at least, to be very no-nonsense types, non-believers.

One of these two people, I found out pretty quickly that he believed in the paranormal, he is a very nice man I met while at the country store, he is a Native American, he used to also be in law enforcement. I would have thought that being part of law enforcement would have made him the type that if he couldn't touch it, that it didn't exist, I have to admit that the few police officers I have known have been that way, but this man stayed true to his heritage and ancestors. I have only been able to speak to him twice now, he owns property close to where I live and frequents the country store when he comes into town, I look forward to speaking with him again.

The other person is someone I met, also at the country store, he has recently become a property owner nearby. I have had many, fairly long chats with him at the country store, he has been around this area for many years, but I only met him last summer. He comes into the country store and hangs around on the porch (a major past time around here), as I said, we have had long, and sometimes deep conversations, but never touched on the paranormal, until very recently.

It turns out that he lost his girlfriend, in a very permanent way, as you can imagine he is very sad about the whole thing, we chatted a bit about this, I suggested that she isn't as far away as he might think, what else do you say to a grieving man? Now this man is as down to earth and pragmatic as they come, I would have never thought of him as someone who knew anything about the paranormal, boy did I peg this one wrong! It didn't matter what I said, he knew something about it, we discussed Carlos Castaneda, Zecharia Sitchin, aliens, spirits, ghosts, you name it and we talked about it, the more we talked, the more surprised I was that he had any knowledge about this much less believed in it.

So, this was my lesson, don't assume anything, some people just keep their beliefs more private than others. I don't discuss my beliefs with everyone either, I wonder how many people would be surprised to learn what I believe and experience? I wonder how many people's beliefs and experiences I am missing out on because I do tend to keep my beliefs and experiences to myself?
