Comment: Hello everyone..I’m new around here. I haven’t read all the stories (a lot) but I LOVE OBARA and her stories. Here is one that I would like to share, after reading about her spiritual visitors. I’ve had a few, but I love this one.

When My Grandfather and Friends came to Visit

I remember dreaming of my grandfather’s passing. The images were that of a narrow road in Jamaica, rain falling so hard the roads were flooded and the water ran the color of brown clay. I was standing and watching a procession of men in black suits, white shirts, and purple sashes across dem. The band lead the procession and I was watching from a plaza (payza) with wooden flooring, outside.

I enjoyed the dream although I was crying. I awoke to share it with an elderly lady in the house…she told me to stop, drink water and put a nutmeg under my tongue for a while then come back and relay the dream. Afterwards, she said someone died and I said it has to be my grandfather-maternal (didn’t know he was sick). Made a phone call and it was true.

After the funeral in Jamaica (couldn’t attend) I was in bed, watching Arsenio Hall show (late 80s), after a while I turned the t.v. off (didn’t like Johnny Carson that came afterwards). Fell asleep. In my sleep I saw a glare of light and woke up. I looked in the direction of the light…there sitting on the bookcase (turned down for cleaning) were three elderly men- my grandfather in the middle.

I looked real good to make sure I was seeing right. The men turned to me- my grandfather said “yu nu have nu manners, we a watch t.v. and yu turn it off. turn it back on”. I turned on the t.v., pull the sheet over my head and went right to sleep. That t.v. stayed on for almost two months and I didn’t look over in that direction at nights to see if they were there watching it.

My grandpa would always say that I’m a “a rude little pickney”; but he would sit me on his lap and feed me, bring me anything from the bush that I love, give me things to eat when I shouldn’t be eating. But papa always enjoyed seeing me off to my paternal grandparents when it was time for me to go to their house during the week. He would tell me to tell my other grandfather hello and to tell him that he wasn’t bald yet. An ongoing banter between them (both Indian mix with a shinny bald spot that leaves hair on the back and sides) and me as the messenger.

My mother is the favorite, “belly wash” for papa and my grandma (age 100). My mum kept her vision and promise for the family when she migrated (the older ones neglected to do when they migrated decades before).  Being that I am the child of his favorite and I wasn’t able to attend his funeral, I believe he made sure to visit me. No one else in the family has a papa after passing story- but me…so, it look like ‘coolie man’ loved his little “bad brute’ grand-daughter after all that he couldn’t leave this plain without me hearing and seeing him. I described his companions to my mother and she knew who they were right away. She said the three of them together was a must.  Another passed last year and I know with him that it is now the four “Musketeers”. Whom ever gets my papa as a guardian please to treat my papa right.

**It turned out that the procession in my dream was similar to his funeral. My mother had a popular band leading the funeral procession with onlookers asking which dignitary passed…she was proud she said to say “my father”. Papa, was a quite, simple man who went to his fields to toil for his family. Bless yu papa xoxo

Thanks Obara. I feel some relief in sharing this.

Here is Deu. 9

Deuteronomy 9 (King James Version)
1 Hear, O Israel: Thou art to pass over Jordan this day, to go in to possess nations greater and mightier than thyself, cities great and fenced up to heaven,

2 A people great and tall, the children of the Anakims, whom thou knowest, and of whom thou hast heard say, Who can stand before the children of Anak!

3 Understand therefore this day, that the Lord thy God is he which goeth over before thee; as a consuming fire he shall destroy them, and he shall bring them down before thy face: so shalt thou drive them out, and destroy them quickly, as the Lord hath said unto thee.

4 Speak not thou in thine heart, after that the Lord thy God hath cast them out from before thee, saying, For my righteousness the Lord hath brought me in to possess this land: but for the wickedness of these nations the Lord doth drive them out from before thee.

5 Not for thy righteousness, or for the uprightness of thine heart, dost thou go to possess their land: but for the wickedness of these nations the Lord thy God doth drive them out from before thee, and that he may perform the word which the Lord sware unto thy fathers, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.

6 Understand therefore, that the Lord thy God giveth thee not this good land to possess it for thy righteousness; for thou art a stiffnecked people.

7 Remember, and forget not, how thou provokedst the Lord thy God to wrath in the wilderness: from the day that thou didst depart out of the land of Egypt, until ye came unto this place, ye have been rebellious against the Lord.

8 Also in Horeb ye provoked the Lord to wrath, so that the Lord was angry with you to have destroyed you.

9 When I was gone up into the mount to receive the tables of stone, even the tables of the covenant which the Lord made with you, then I abode in the mount forty days and forty nights, I neither did eat bread nor drink water:

10 And the Lord delivered unto me two tables of stone written with the finger of God; and on them was written according to all the words, which the Lord spake with you in the mount out of the midst of the fire in the day of the assembly.

11 And it came to pass at the end of forty days and forty nights, that the Lord gave me the two tables of stone, even the tables of the covenant.

12 And the Lord said unto me, Arise, get thee down quickly from hence; for thy people which thou hast brought forth out of Egypt have corrupted themselves; they are quickly turned aside out of the way which I commanded them; they have made them a molten image.

13 Furthermore the Lord spake unto me, saying, I have seen this people, and, behold, it is a stiffnecked people:

14 Let me alone, that I may destroy them, and blot out their name from under heaven: and I will make of thee a nation mightier and greater than they.

15 So I turned and came down from the mount, and the mount burned with fire: and the two tables of the covenant were in my two hands.

16 And I looked, and, behold, ye had sinned against the Lord your God, and had made you a molten calf: ye had turned aside quickly out of the way which the Lord had commanded you.

17 And I took the two tables, and cast them out of my two hands, and brake them before your eyes.

18 And I fell down before the Lord, as at the first, forty days and forty nights: I did neither eat bread, nor drink water, because of all your sins which ye sinned, in doing wickedly in the sight of the Lord, to provoke him to anger.

19 For I was afraid of the anger and hot displeasure, wherewith the Lord was wroth against you to destroy you. But the Lord hearkened unto me at that time also.

20 And the Lord was very angry with Aaron to have destroyed him: and I prayed for Aaron also the same time.

21 And I took your sin, the calf which ye had made, and burnt it with fire, and stamped it, and ground it very small, even until it was as small as dust: and I cast the dust thereof into the brook that descended out of the mount.

22 And at Taberah, and at Massah, and at Kibrothhattaavah, ye provoked the Lord to wrath.

23 Likewise when the Lord sent you from Kadeshbarnea, saying, Go up and possess the land which I have given you; then ye rebelled against the commandment of the Lord your God, and ye believed him not, nor hearkened to his voice.

24 Ye have been rebellious against the Lord from the day that I knew you.

25 Thus I fell down before the Lord forty days and forty nights, as I fell down at the first; because the Lord had said he would destroy you.

26 I prayed therefore unto the Lord, and said, O Lord God, destroy not thy people and thine inheritance, which thou hast redeemed through thy greatness, which thou hast brought forth out of Egypt with a mighty hand.

27 Remember thy servants, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob; look not unto the stubbornness of this people, nor to their wickedness, nor to their sin:

28 Lest the land whence thou broughtest us out say, Because the Lord was not able to bring them into the land which he promised them, and because he hated them, he hath brought them out to slay them in the wilderness.

29 Yet they are thy people and thine inheritance, which thou broughtest out by thy mighty power and by thy stretched out arm.

No Obara, mi was a semi-nerd back in school days.

Here is the dream:

I dreamt that my sister and I were travelling to a funeral. When we got to the funeral, it was a nice big hall, well decorated, a picture of opulence. Anyways, I said to her ‘suh how everybody outside?’ We got out the car and I took one of the funeral program. When I looked at the back (cover)of the program I saw Gary, the guy who invited me. I said out loud ‘bwoy Gary nuh easy eeh…Look how him splash his pic on the back cover and a nuh him a bury. It was a big, lovely picture of Gary..Gary looked like a movie star in the pic). Only problem, mi nuh know nuh Gary. Anyways as I was leafing through the program, I saw my name in bold prints on the program to read a lesson. Yes, mi gal MTH!!! The lesson was Deuteronomy 9.

I then said ‘how Gary neva even tell mi sey him set dung mi name fi read nuh passage. (I wasnt angry, just fussing that he didnt tell me so I could practice). As I turned the bible to start reading the passage, the crowd started getting excited. The kind of excitement you see when you go to a music festival and your favourite musician is about to take the stage. People were on both sides as apparently they were waiting to see ‘Kirk’. Kirk made a grand entrance. I didnt see him but my senses told me he looked liked Dwight from RHOA. Then some mentioned of a wedding was made. All in all everything was very regal and majestyic. (Mi likkle nervous bout wedding and funeral inna one dream).

Thanks for sharing blogger. I think I shared on her before. My grandmother died and no one told me because I was away at school by myself. She dreamt me three nights in a row to tell me she is gone. I was even told the EXACT date the funeral was before anyone told me. Boy, you can’t make these things up.

What is the significance of the nutmeg.

GOOD MORNING ALL!!!!
