Good morning. I was awoken during the night from the doorbell ringing. This is not the first time that this has occurred for me. Some of the strangest phenomenon happens and I am out to find an answer. In the midst of slumber, I am awoken by the sound of my front doorbell ringing. It has always occurred while it is still dark outside...around 2 and 3 in the morning. I am startled and jump up. No one is there...it doesn't continue to ring either...but I swear that it had! Another phenomenon is a man's voice....(sounds like my husband's) saying my name. I jump up and no one is there....although I would have sworn that he was right there...he is not! I go to check to make sure he is alright and discover him sound asleep!
Then things like this have happened in the past, I have attributed it to the thoughts that I must have dreamed it...even though it seems NOT!
Last night when this happened, it left me thinking that perhaps it might be some sort of message. An awakening of another kind...so to speak. I pondered about who it might be...what it might be about. The one odd thing was that yesterday...I was cleaning and decided to move my mother's memorial box which contains her ashes to a different spot. The thought went through my head...could it have been her...could she not be happy with the move? I haven't given any of the other doorbell events any thoughts...so this was one to journal about....and now to pay closer attention. Being that it is memorial weekend...by thoughts have also been on a neighbor who was killed in Vietnam. As I sat on the computer, I watched a video of the cemeteries and all the crosses displayed of the men and women who were killed in the wars and thought about Tony. He was killed in Vietnam and his body was brought home for burial. He is in the cemetery at the end of my block. Could it be him?
I blogged yesterday about missing a dear friend who had recently passed away and how much I miss her...could she have decided to make contact? Or is it just me dreaming with lifelike experience?
The first thing I did this morning was to search the internet about what it might mean...believing that oftentimes...a dream is telling us something. I was surprised to discover that MANY have had the same experience as myself. There is a lot of speculation as to what is happening...I myself will continue to research and look for others input. How about you, my readers? Have you had any experiences like these? I would love to hear about them. Won't you share your experiences?
As for Bells...it seems to me that they are definitely an important part to spirituality and religion. I know that the movie "It's a Wonderful Life" interjects that when bell rings, an angel gets their wings...and sure you would think that those sentiments are just because of the movie...but the belief in that was here long before the movie was ever made. I started to think about bells....church bells...and how the ringing of them are really a memorable statement at a funeral. I have been to a cemetery that rings their bell that is in the entry archway. I thought about the catholic masses I had attended and the ringing of the bells for particular parts of the service. Chinese ring bells to communicate directly with the spirit. Russian Orthodox, bells directly addressed the deity There have bells throughout history playing an important role. From bells on ships, bells on animals, bells that alert and bells of freedom.
All I know is that I believe that the bell must mean something important. I will mark this day down in a journal and wait. I will update you whether something occurs or I gain some revelation over the bells of the night....in the meantime, I would love to hear your feedback.
