Back in May of 1991 my mom and I stayed at the
beautiful St. Francis Hotel in San Francisco -- we were there for
two nights. The hotel was being renovated, so we stayed in the older
section of the hotel. The hallway leading up to our room was very
creepy... just "old" feeling. When we entered the room, it was very
impressive and large, but still felt old and uneasy.
We left the room and came back hours later to sleep. I had a very strange
dream that night. There were three people in my dream, two men and
one woman. They were clad in old Victorian clothes and the two men
were very angry and arguing. One of the men placed his hands around
the other man's throat and began picking him up by his neck
(something you'd see in a movie).
Suddenly, I began waking up from this angry/scary dream. But as I was coming
to consciousness, I felt my body literally bounce onto the bed, as
if I had been floating over my bed. I sat up rather startled and my
neck hurt, as if someone had their hands around my neck (but not a
choking feeling like a sore throat).
I still cannot explain this dream or the feeling I had when I woke up, but
it scared me enough to wake up my mom right away to tell her my
dream. Nothing happened that next night, but I was scared to sleep.
This year, in October of 2003 (12 years later), a co-worker and I
were talking about ghostly encounters and looking at haunted photos.
I remember that we had taken photos inside the hotel, so I searched
for my San Francisco photos and sure enough, found a photo of me in
the large, spooky room of the St. Francis.
Well, I almost jumped out of my shorts when I looked at this photo, to find
a large orb right near the chandelier.
Yes -- something was there with us that night. I still can't explain
that dream I had, or what happened to me -- but I can certainly
justify that we weren't the only ones in that room and there were
some very angry spirits too.
