I was on vacation by myself in a cabin
that I have frequented for many years. I go to this particular place because it
is so remote, that you literally do not see or hear people, or any kind of
machinery ( ie. cars, lawn mowers, saws, even the planes fly so high you can
barely hear them at all.) The only sounds that you hear, are those of nature. (
Birds, raccoons, crickets, frogs, owls, etc....) I go there to relax & have
a chance to read. I have had ADC experiences there previously, and it got me
interested in the subject, so this particular week I had brought several books
on the subject of Communication after death. ( Hello from Heaven, Love from
Beyond, Crossing Over & others ) Having read some of these books, as well as
having already had an experience here, I was reading how to meditate, to open
yourself up to the process. I had requested out loud for my parents to come
through to me since I had arrived. I was practicing the meditation exercises,
when I fell asleep. I experienced what I believe is termed a "Dream
Visit". I was in a bar. The surrounding background was fuzzy white.
Something or someone told me to turn around. When I did, there was my
Dad standing there, in a suit, with his hands in his pockets, just as I
remember him. I ran to him, so happy to see him. He scooped me up with a very
big hug. "Dad", I screamed, "How are you? " "It's been
so long." "I have missed you so much!" He said "I know, I
have missed you too." As we released our hug, we were looking at each other
& started talking, but the "Vision & audio" faded to white.
Almost immediately , it came back into focus & I could hear our conversation
again. I somehow "knew" time had elapsed & it was time for me to
go. (For some unexplainable reason, I feel like we talked for 4 hours. I don't
know why I think it was 4 hours, & not 3 or 3 and a half hours, or 20
minutes for that matter, but again, I just have a "sense" it was four
hours. ). I didn't feel sad that I had to leave as I realized that I can still
communicate with him. I gave him a huge tight hug, and I said "I love you
Dad". He replied, "I know, I love you too". I said I love you
with all of my heart," and soul Dad, I love you with all my heart&
soul." He held me tight & with tears in his eyes he said, " I know
Jude, I know". I turned to go and got almost to the door when a tall black
man walked in, scooped me up & twirled me around in the air. He looked like
my departed father-in-law, Yerby. He asked me if I had seen my Dad & I said,
"Yes he's over there." & I
turned around one last time, & there he was just standing there looking
exactly like I remember him, with his hands in his pockets & his Irish smile
on his face watching me go. That was when I woke up. I couldn't verify how long
I had been sleeping as I leave my watch at home & unplug all the clocks in
the cabin, so I rely on my own "body clock" when I am at the cabin. I
immediately wrote down what happened to keep it fresh in my mind. It was so
vivid. There is no way in the world, anyone will ever convince me I didn't have
a real conversation & visit with my father that day. I hope to someday be
able to afford a hypnotist to put me under to find out what our 4 hour

Please offer any suggestions you may have to improve this questionnaire: You might want to ask if anything else happened later that I might feel was "related" to the experience. As in my case I had asked that both my parents come through. Although, my father was the one to come to me in the dream so vividly, later that week, out of no where, I received 25 photos of my mother when she was younger, that we never knew even existed. This was entirely out of the blue, 40 years after her death. From a Aunt we hadn't spoken to in 10 years. Even when we were closer to this woman, she never gave any indication that these photos even existed. Then poof, out of no where, they were sent to me !!! I feel both my Mom & Dad had a hand in getting these photos to me.
