Clairvoyant or a Dream


Clairvoyant or a Dream, is something I wanted to share with you. Do you believe there are clairvoyant people? It’s a challenging subject and has been contributed to a lot of criticism.

Clairvoyant or a Dream, I believe it, to a certain extent. I’ve never actually seen or known a clairvoyant person. Although I’ve had dreams that have actually come true within 24 hours of the dream, I had dreamt. Before knowing, that it had happened I told my daughters about the dream. Then, it actually happens, and I’ve left them in shock. Let me tell you about them.





Dream #1: Cows in the Garden & Orchard

I went on a camping trip with my daughters in summer of 1996, the nite before we had to go back home, I woke to a crazy dream. It was crystal clear as to the events that occurred in my dream. 3 cows broke through the neighbor’s fencing and wandered their way through our orchard and garden we all had worked so hard on.

They completely destroyed the garden of ripened tomatoes and sorted veggies. That wasn’t enough. They stripped the branches, apples, and pears from our little orchard of fruit trees. Leaving our place in utter shambles.

I awoke the Sunday morning we were to head home, thinking its just a silly dream. But I couldn’t shake the details out of my head. So, I shared it with my daughters while cooking breakfast for them over a campfire.

Let’s just say, every detail of that dream was met in reality.


Dream #2: Quando the Flying Horse

I want to warn you! This dream isn’t pretty. Note: My late husband, his brother, and stepson go hunting every year, they take pack horses. We train horses to pack gear into the wilderness. They go for a 10-day stint. So they need help packing in supplies for the camp. My late husband had purchased a new horse “Quando” just before his trip. Granted I never met Quando, he was a thoroughbred of 8 years old. I didn’t get the chance to put any training under his saddle “So to speak!”

With hugs and kisses goodbye to everyone! Off they went! I hadn’t heard from them for a few days. On the third night, I woke to a horrific dream. So vivid, so horrible, and crystal clarity in details.

In my dream; I saw a trailhead, my late husband was walking a tall, brown horse loaded with all his camp gear. The horse started wobbling, swaying from side to side. My late husband turned to look at Quando the brown horse, Quando is shaking his head, over, over, and over again.

Then his legs stagger. He’s stepping backward. “Granted on a trailhead, the trail is only 2 feet wide. There is no room for missteps. There’s a ridge to go up or an edge to go over into a 7000-foot drop of rocks, trees, and huge boulders.”

My late husband is trying to pull him forward. But with a horse weighing a thousand pounds, it’s impossible. Quando goes straight up on back legs. Loses his balance and topples over the edge of the trailhead. He was like a bouncing ball, hitting boulders with each bounce. Then down he went behind a huge white boulder. The next event was the shrilling sound of Quando’s cry of agony!

In the dream, I remember a gunshot. Stepson, Erling had to send “Quando” to horse heaven.

That was when I bolted from my dream state, wide awake at 4 am. I couldn’t go sleep. I just had to wait until my late husband called the next time. Yet, it wasn’t long before I got the phone call I had been waiting for all morning. His voice was very down and somber. His next words were; “Something horrible has happened, we are coming home early. I screamed in the background. He asked if I was ok? I exclaimed: Did the brown horse die? Every detail I’ve written here actually happened.

Do you believe in clairvoyant or a dream that has come true?

This morning at 6:31 am, I had this dream, tell me your random thoughts after you read the poem of this dream. It has the same clarity. I can’t get the details out of my head.


Random Thoughts: Clairvoyant or a Dream

I woke with a bad dream.
Something about this dream had clarity.
Most of my dreams are fuzzy.
Vaguely remembering bits and pieces.
But this one, about this dream.
I could write every detail.
I’ve had these clairvoyant dreams before.
Three have come true, complete with every detail.
So here it goes.

A big barn, doors opened to the blue sky.
Ben was painting, painting yellow over eyes.
Stenciled eyes on black pavement.
I watched his delicate strokes with the paint can.
Spray, spray, spray, pause. Then again.

Then, a strange man walks into the barn.
A tall, lean frame of a man. Dark hair.
He stares at me, enamored by my silhouette.
Smiles, a bigger smile, followed by a Hello.
He stands to watch. Ben asks in he can help this man.

Leonel, who is an employee of Ben.
Walks over to the man shake his hand.
Commencing into a long conversation.
Ben wraps his arms around my waist
holding me tightly. Kisses me gently on the eyelid.

Ben’s dog Hunter walks into the barn.
I watch him. He starts to whimper.
Then the whimper turns into a cry.
Hunter’s stride becomes struggled with each step.
He collapses to the concrete floor. Whimpering loudly.

I’ve seen this before, I grabbed a bottle of water off the shelf.
Poured it into a bowl. Then I awoke.

I wanted to stay asleep dreaming. To know that Hunter was fine. Only time will tell.

Starbucks Coffee and 7 Happy Thoughts of Today


Through steam rising from a Starbucks coffee, thoughts race through my mind. I smile in appreciation of the small things.

Do you have small things? Mine is slow sips of Starbucks coffee.

Those little unique delights that exhilarate you, looking forward to the familiar patterns of the day! Maybe, it’s the way something pleasant smells or the fellow on the corner that always greets you with a Hello! Share your pleasant thoughts!





Starbucks Coffee and My 7 Happy Thoughts of Today

I slept so good and awoke before the alarm clock went off. Yeah!
Then, my boyfriend surprises me with a piping hot Starbuck’s
drip coffee and a heated classic coffee cake.
But, nothing was sweeter than his passionate kisses.
Out of nowhere a squirrel caught Rookie by surprise,
he barked with excitement in the chase.
But, the squirrel got away up in a tree, laughing, chattering.
Bianca is in a great mood, cause I am going to
have a conference with her teacher Mrs. Kendall at 2 pm.
(School conference week.) I know I will be impressed.
The colors of fall are of brilliant yellow,
orange, and greens fading to brown are
astounding this morning,
and the cold air helps me feel completely alive.

I love the changes of summer to fall.

Meltdowns and Friday Random Thoughts


Meltdowns in children & Friday Random Thoughts

Meltdowns? I call it meltdowns…because my child completely loses her composure when something does respond in the fashion she wants. What is your term you use? Everyone has nicknames for everything.

For example, this morning I awoke, jumped from my bed, knowing full well I was running late. I start pulling clothes over my body. Then, I realized something. I had forgotten my daughter had a day off from school today.

I laughed at myself. Went to the kitchen and heated some cold coffee.

Do you ever catch yourself doing that? What’s even funnier, that my daughter who is 9 and a half years old, did the same thing. She comes into my room fully dressed. Then we look at one another and laugh.

And, then realizing again it was Friday. We both settled into my bed with our crazy Pomeranian “Rookie,” chatting and throwing “gobble, gobble toy” for him, whom he loves so much.





We sat there for over an hour talking about our emotions and feelings we have. Namely, Bianca had a little meltdown the night before because I had said no to something she wanted, but it was not needed. And, it wasn’t feasible. So, this morning I tried to give her an opportunity to release her feelings about what happened.

Of course, we as adults have meltdowns too.

I believe in not letting conflicts sit for too long. There’s always a resolution to issues or disagreements.

By the end of our conversations, I could see release in the tension of her body, and a sparkle shone from her brown eyes. I never want her to think that we can’t reason everything out.

How do you handle your meltdowns? Have anyone helpful tips?

Want to wish you all a blessed Friday and a wonderful weekend too!
