Sharing a dream I had…You can decide whether it was real….or just a dream….


I had an interesting dream a few nights ago. A lot weighs on my mind in the evenings. I think about so many things… I’ve been contemplating whether to post this or not – because I really am not sure if anyone would believe me or not… Or they would tell me… “It was just a dream…” … Well sure  – but… I feel like I was showed something in this dream…

I am not morbid- But…the end of life… well, it weighs on me a lot. For some reason, I’ve always felt that I may not be here incredibly long… I could be wrong. And it isn’t that I want to die anytime soon… AS I cherish life and all the beauty that comes with it – even with all the roadblocks in between. I’ve just always felt…limited – like I need to accomplish all I can….soon. That could also just be my very task oriented mind too – so … I am not incredibly definite on that.

… But sometimes, Death just enters my mind… What will it be like?…. What will happen ? I have quite a collection of books about the afterlife….Stories from NDE’s… and all sorts of stuff… Preparation and research I guess you could call it….

… So a few nights ago… I straight out asked/prayed in my mind…”just show me something“….Show me something in my dream….. Ease my mind…. ease my heart… ” I realize that was pretty brave of me… but … what did I have to lose? Except for some sleep, perhaps?

And so… I went to sleep….somewhere in the middle of the night….in my dream… Someone was talking to me… It was pure white all around. Bright white and warm… A shadowy figure I couldn’t really make out approached me… They were very nice. It was neither male or female… It wasn’t a dark shadow either – it seemed as if it were some sort of blue outline with light coming from all directions around it… They took me into a room with many seats and there was a big screen… I was told that is where I would sit one day… This is where I would learn. There was an old reel in the room off somewhere on a table… A few items from my past played a little – like a preview and then it was stopped…I also woke up.  I woke up more mystified than ever…

…. You can decide from here – whether you believe me or not…. or if it was …just a dream.

“Within the depths of our mind, we are battling the duel of light and darkness…good and evil…love and hate…” Between Light and Darkness is Ariana’s most recent collection of poetry… Cherry’s frequent message she delivers throughout her work is, “The journey through the darkness, back into the light.” Her hope is to let others know that they won’t be in that place of darkness for long – that they indeed can reach the light once again…She also wants her readers to know – that – it is okay if they find themselves in that bleak blackness…Sometimes we feel guilty for going to that dark place – but it is necessary to conquer the demons that battle our souls…. Other books that Cherry has written include "Only If" and "Twisted Paths Poetry." Her epic tale, “Only If,” won the “Reader’s Favorite Award” and a 5 star review…and her collection, “Twisted Paths Poetry,” received a 5 star review from Realistic Poetry International. She has been writing ever since she was a child. Some of her inspirations include Edgar Allen Poe, Robert Frost, Stephen King, Emily Dickinson, Christopher Pike and Shel Silverstein. Ariana writes a variety of genres: inspirational, humorous and horror – although writing horror is one of her favorites…. She was 12 years old when she read Poe for the very first time – which inspired her epic poetry tale, “Only If.“ During other parts of her free time, she enjoys taking photos and creating art. Her “day-jobs” include working as a church administrative aide and reporting for a local newspaper.
