My 3AM Encounter

A Ghost? An Angel? Dreaming?

My husband had to wake up early and get ready for work.  The alarm went off at 3AM and he left the room to get ready.

I lie there awake when suddenly I found myself rubbing my eyes an blinking and opening my eyes as wide as I could.  My heart rate went up, but I wouldn’t say I was scared.

Hovering over me was a bright white and golden looking toddler with curly cues in her hair and bright eyes.  she was moving her head from shoulder to shoulder and looking closely in my eyes as if she were trying to figure out who I was just as much as I was trying to figure out who she was.

I continued to push on my eyes and make sure they were open as wide as I could and to see if I was dreaming.  I then noticed an outline of a person off to the side.

This encounter didn’t last long, but it touched me and left me wondering what this was.  Was I dreaming with my eyes open?  I rarely remember dreams.  Was this a ghost?  An angel?  A spirit?  I really don’t know.  I never believed in ghosts or things like this before it happened.  I do think something was there, but I’m not sure what it was.

I have never forgotten the look on her face or how bright and golden she was.  The look on her face as she squinted and started at me will be etched in my mind forever.

That’s all!  I have no answers or insight.  Just a peaceful, happy moment at 3AM which I will always wonder about. a good combination

  1. I would have to agree that this was an incredible experience. Something to definitely remember. I say seek the Lord on this and be open to hearing from Him. And just a word of caution, especially since you have been interceding for your son. Remember the word tells us “And no wonder! For Satan himself transforms himself into an angel of light.” II Corinthians‬ ‭11:14‬ ‭NKJV‬‬. Be vigilant and mindful of who and what you entertain. If it happens again speak to it. Test the spirit (1 John 4:1-6) with the word of God.

      1. Now that’s interesting. May I ask if you were doing anything in specific that brought this memory back to your remembrance? That’s if anything stands out to you


          1. Sometimes the Lord bring things back to our remembrance so that we may have a reference point to when something may have taken root in our lives. The fact that this child was accompanied by another figure that you could not identify is what stands out to me. I will pray about this. I pray the Lord reveals to you what exactly it is that He is trying to get to you.

          2. Just a thought. The Lord gives me visions sometimes. They are like dreams, only when I am awake with eyes open or shut. He gives them to me to illustrate a Biblical truth, like a parable, like Jesus told parables. They are illustrations like a preacher might give in his sermon to help us to connect to a particular biblical truth.

            So, with that said, sometimes during my quiet times with the Lord he will bring something back to my mind that I have forgotten, which could be a dream or a vision, and he will bring it back to my mind at just the moment when I am reading something in scripture, because he wants to use that dream or that vision to illustrate for me something he wants me to get from that particular passage.

            So, if the Lord brought that back to your mind while you were having your quiet time with him, and if you journal your quiet times, I would suggest that you revisit that passage of scripture and what you wrote in your journal and then ask the Lord if that was him bringing that back to mind, and if it was, ask him to show you what it is he wants you to learn from it in relation to your passage of scripture.

            I will say one more thing here. Just as Jesus’ parables were symbolic of other things, so will be your vision, if truly that is what that was. What this means is, just like in the book of Revelation, most things we see in a dream or in a vision will not be literal.

            So, what the Lord has me do is to look at the individual words in the vision and to see what they mean (like in a thesaurus) and then he, if this is from him, directs me to the meaning (the symbolism) of the words and how they fit with the passage of scripture I am reading. He has given me so much depth of understanding of scripture this way, and he has given me much in the way of practical application of his word as applied to our lives, the church and the world today, too.

  2. We are told to test the Spirits: Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God; 1 John 4:1
    because the enemy does have power to deceive. So keep waiting on the Lord and inquiring of Him and He would eventually reveal what He wants you to know.
