Why would the spirits of Native Americans visit me every night as a child? Every night before my parents moved us they came from my closet and would surround my bed and touch my ears or my mouth. They looked as real to me as my parents. Why???
Wow, how cool!
Well, I can’t speak to your experience, only you can do this.
What I can say, is that as Indigenous people, we believe that all things both inanimate and alive hold a lifeforce or energy, especially the land we occupy. It is said that when we are younger, we are more tapped ‘in’ and if we don’t pay attention or listen to these gifts, we can lose them over time.
Many people, including myself have had ‘visits’ from those who have crossed over and I’ve always considered them for the most part (because I’ve had some pretty scary and negative experiences too) to be incredibly lucky, blessed, and insightful.
I hope this helps and best of luck to you as you continue to investigate what this means to you and your future.
