My mother has me scared

I was talking to my mother this evening and she told me that she hopes I sleep better than she would. So my natural reaction was what the heck do you mean by that?! She said she had been tense all week like she felt something bad was gonna happen. So now she has me freaked out! I texted her and told her how frightening her comment was. She obviously felt bad that she even said anything. She was like oh I'm sure it's nothing and said she just missed her mom, dad, my other grandmother, etc., and she said it's probably just holiday blues. But still I am really nervous now! Oh and I don't believe the world is going to end on the 21st of this month and neither does she, so that's not it. Anyway just venting.

It could be holiday blues or stress - but it could also be that something in her subconscious has alerted her about a problem.

I'd try for a calm talk with her to see if she can figure out what triggered it. (Maybe talking it out without feeling stressed or uncomfortable will help her feel better.)

Note - that since my Mom is in her 80s, I think how she's feeling is more important than how you are feeling - but I'm still sorry that you are worried about it.

I go through this a lot with myself. Some days you wake up and just know you should not leave the house even if you have plans. Sometimes you walk into a store or room and think "Oh God, I have to leave right now!" It's hard to explain to people why you get the feelings that you do. Just the other night I ran out to the store and as I was getting ready to leave I hit a yellow light and instantly I felt the "DONT RUN IT!" feeling. A few minutes later at the next street up the car that was in front of me was hit, if I had gone through the light that would have been me.

Dec 21st isn't necessarily the end of the world.. the Mayans fortold of an earth changing event around this time.. like New Zealand and Alaska swapping places on the globe, or something like that... well, that might seem like the end of the world to kiwis

I used to get those feelings and they are weird. I finally managed to fight them off. Once when I had that feeling and was leaving home for work, I looked around for strangers(danger) about to jump me before I could get to the car(at home). Got to work and told my super something bad was going to happen. About 30 minutes to an hour later she came and told me if I ever got that feeling again to not mention it. When I asked why, she said a woman that lived like two or three houses up had shot and killed her live in boyfriend or husband. It is just a terrible foreboding feeling, but you don't know to whom or what terrible is going to happen and you can't do anything about it.
Bad, bad, anxiety feeling. The feeling goes away once whatever it is has happened...but you may never know what has happened.

Is your mum usually sensitive? Has she had premonitions that have come true, not vaguely but in detail?

Very few people can read such things with any accuracy.

I often find most folk who come out with such vagueries as 'oooh I have a bad feeling something bad is going to happen' are simply picking up on what is going on around them.

Add to this it is Christmas and voila if you are feeling bad (for no reason really) you have doom gloom and despondancy when there really is no need for it.

Sleep well, don't worry, if you are truly worried then try this incantation.

"By the dragons light, on this December night,

I call to thee to give me your might,

by the power of three, I conjure thee,

to protect all that, surrounds me, so mote it be!"

Panic attacks can do that to a person.

It's a horrible feeling of impending doom, possibly brought on by impending doom.....

The answer to your questions are no. I worry about my parents in general. She is 67 and my dad is 72. She has lost a few close family members who passed away close to the holidays so I'm hoping it's just the blues!

Ah, this explains it, honestly it does.

I hope you didnt mind me sending you the incantation. I have found when someone is worried about unseen things (ie impending disaster) it helps to focus on a positive. Prayer is one way, invoking 'Mother Earth' and 'Good Spirits' is another.
I have a friend who is deeply religious, she goes to church and has crucifixes all over her house. She was the last person I would have thought would turn to the old ways to keep evil from her door. One day however, she mentioned to me that she thought her house was haunted. It was news to me as she had never mentioned it before but here she was absolutely terrified and in genuine need of someones help. She explained the haunting had only started since she brought into her home something of her grandmothers, an old chest of drawers, (it had been bequethed to her and though she didnt like it, felt she had to take it home with her). Anyhow, since its arrival things had been going wrong, accidents had happened, items lost and whenever she went into the room in which it stood she felt uneasy so much so she didnt like to go into the room anymore.
I reasoned with her that it was probably because she didnt like the furniture and that she should if she felt so strongly just sell it on or throw it out.
She told me she couldnt. Her mother would never forgive her.
I told her, give it to your mother, at which she said her mother didnt want it in her house because she didnt like it either.
So I went to see it. (at my friends behest)
It was a reasonably nice piece, it was old, probably a hundred or more years to be truthful, it was made of oak with great big brass handles. Actually it was the kind of thing I have in my house.
So I suggested she ask her priest to bless the chest of drawers and her house. She told me she had already done this, but that he had been very scathing of her request. (That deeply upset her). In fact he had laughed at her suggestion the c of d might be possessed or the like.

So I told her to get some Peppermint and burn it, followed by some Eucalyptus and sprinkle it around the chest of drawers and to keep some nearby it.
She reported everything had settled down after she did as I told her.

Coincidence, probably.
But if it helps, what the heck.
