This morning I was in the middle of a dream when my alarm went off. My eyes immediately opened to see the flash of two men standing on the other side of my bed. As quickly as I spotted them they disappeared from sight.
Now, it would have been easy for me to dismiss that as carry over from the dream I was having (even though they weren't in it) or my mind switching to conscious mode, but if my dealings with Spirit have taught me ANYTHING it is to dismiss NOTHING and no, you did not just make the whole thing up in your head.
Trust yourself and believe what you are or have experienced and search for the message within. It's in THIS self acceptance and self validation that your spiritual awareness grows and expands...so say the spiritual guides. :)
