Now the reason that this was so strange was because I didn't feel threatened or afraid! The last experience I had was of a dark figure walking towards in an aggressive manner and then vanished. So this one was the polar opposite from the last time. Has anyone ever had this happen? I know that these things are subjective, but as a mom I don't like to see kids alone. I felt very protective of this little boy. I said out loud to him that he could come back, that I wasn't afraid of him and that if he needed me that I was there for him, just like I would with one of my kids. This experience has just struck a chord with me in that it was a child, which is heartbreaking in it's own right, but also just how innocent and little he was. Please help me to understand, if possible.
***Update: 5/5/14- I have felt the presence of this little boy several times since seeing him. I am not afraid of him and his energy is just like one of my kids, which leads me to believe that he might either be one of my miscarriages (I've had 6) or that maybe we will be having another addition to our family. I feel like I know this child, as I feel very maternal towards him, and I will continue to be open to any experiences that may come along.
***Update: 6/18/14- Well, it has been a few weeks since I've had an experience. However, yesterday we found out that we are expecting another child, #3 for our family. I feel very peaceful and feel as if this little boy was just scoping out his future home before he came to us in his physical body. We are thrilled, or at least we will be once the shock fades.
