    Sexual Abuse or Really Vivid Dream?

    A few months ago I saw a Shamanic healer who told me that I had been sexually abused as a child. A couple people have asked me before if I had been, then told me I seemed like someone who would have sexually abused. That caught me completely off guard because I have no memory of being sexually abused. I do, however, remember specific dreams I had at that time of my life.

    My dad was stationed in Korea when I was 4-5 years old and we lived in base housing. I remember a lot of details about the house, where we lived, the base. I remember feeling safe there and developed a lot of independence, even at that young age. So, when this healer told me I had been sexually abused I didn't quite believe it because I have such a vivid memory of my early childhood.

    One thing I do remember is having these dreams where I would get a faceless male visitor that I was happy to see. In my dream I would have to stand on a stool, on my tippy toes to kiss him. The other thing I remember about these dreams is a sensation that would come over my body, like a tingling feeling and my dream would kind of melt into a gold/yellow. This dream is the only thing that leads me to believe that something happened. It happened multiple times, because I had the dream repeatedly, but I don't remember having the dream after we left Korea. It was only there.....

    I know that repressed memories is common phenomena. What ever happened, what ever the truth is I will probably never know exactly what happened. And the only reason why I'm even seeking answers now, is because something has been unleashed in my mind and I have become different.

    I feel like I am having some version of a nervous breakdown and can't help but wonder if this mysterious piece of my past is standing in my of moving forward in my life. Does anyone have any similar type of experience or resolved their repressed memories? I honestly don't know for sure what I'm looking for. But, any input would be appreciated.

    Hello sofieray and welcome.

    If different people keep mentioning the same thing over and over,I can see how that would eventually be implanted in one's thoughts.

    I took it a step further and wondered if it was your body language or mannerisms that caused people concern.

    Have you considered seeing a therapist,as this will be the safest way to explore your psyche and potentially unlock answers to this most sensitive question.

    Take Care and God Bless....God Bless Us All.

    Respectfully
    Phoenix
