So very sorry it's taken me such a long time to respond. Life just got in the way and things have been difficult. I hope you understand Chris.
Though belated, I do appreciate and thank you very much for your response.
I stated my mother's eyes were dilated because I didn't know how else to explain it. Truth is, I swore my mother's blue eyes turned to brown, but that didn't make sense, so I chalked it up to her eyes being dilated. That is until my husband and I talked about it later. He told me he saw that my mother's eyes were brown as well. I just about fell off the couch 'cause I thought I was seeing things, but he confirmed it for me.
I'd say claircognizant, yes. A bit clairsentient at times, but that could just be the claircognizant side knowing things, I'm not sure. Right now my head seems to be in a fog though and I feel so lost. For a short time there was nothing, but I the knowing things returned, yet it's muted 'cause it's not something that really registers in my head much anymore. As well, for 20 yrs. I've dreamed about wolves. I was told by a psychic and a Native American (I'm a small portion Cherokee...my great grandmother was full blooded Cherokee) that the wolf was my spirit animal. After my mother passed, the dreams stopped for quite a while. I've had a couple of dreams with them in it, but it was only for a short time, to where before they took up a large part of my dreams. I learned that they were my mother's spirit animal too. Many times they were grey wolves that were chasing me in my dreams. I was told it was a warning. Then again, I've always had a lot of drama in my life, so it's not surprising. Right before my mother passed I was bitten by a wolf in a dream, which has never happened in all the yrs. of dreaming about them. Then a white wolf approached me like it was going to attack, but instead laid down next to me and began to paw at me like a pup would. I've never dreamed about white wolves before. The next dream I had and the white wolf was chasing me along with the grey wolves. The two small dreams I had after my mother passed, I was running with the wolves. Instead of being grey in color, they were the typical Timber wolf (which is also known as the "grey wolf") coloring. The next dream was about someone saying the wolf in my dream stood for something. It was a white wolf with a diamond shape on it's forehead. The wolf curled up close to me and then arms wrapped around me and embraced me. All I could see were the arms, not whose arms they were. I've not dreamed about wolves since.
This is all very odd because my mother, according to my dad after she passed away, was a medium. My mother had a lot of mental issues however (she purportedly had DID, though another doctor told her she didn't) and she would lie a lot about experiences with people that she was caught lying in, so I'm not sure what to believe. Also, her being a medium is not something anyone else was ever aware of. Supposedly she once said something about passing over and going to the plains with a Cherokee tribe. The Shaman of the tribe and the angels were going to let my dad in though he's not Cherokee. The thing is, yes, my mother respected both her Cherokee and Irish heritage, but she was Christian and did not believe in going to any "plains" after she passed...she believed that when Jesus returned to collect the dead she'd go to heaven. She told my dad there was a wolf that guarded the tribe and played with the tribe's dogs though. The wolf was grey in color, just like the ones in my dreams, which I find strange. The dreams and color of the wolves in my dreams was not something my dad was aware of either.
It all has me a bit lost as to just what happened and why she told my dad what she did.
