I was sitting at my
computer viewing perfumes on eBay as I usually do. On the right side of the
table, a couple of feet away was my son's neon flash sparkle toy. The toy
suddenly rolled towards me and touched my hand and there was nothing prompting
it. I always ask my mom to give me more signs of her never ending love for me
and my dad and son. After this happened, I told my dad and my son who were in
the other room when it happened, and they completely believed me because this is
not the first time we have received signs from my mom. I felt so happy and that
she really is not that far away. I know she is in Heaven with Jesus, but I am so
honored that she takes time to still show my family that she is always with us
and that our family's love and ties will never die. One day we will all be
together once again, but until that time, these signs are what I have to go on.

How do you currently view the reality of your experience? Experience was definitely real
Please explain why you view the reality of your experience as real or not real: I am very in tune to the spiritual realm, and I always ask my mom for more signs- they may not come right away, but they do eventually happen. I also pray to Jesus that if it's in accordance with his will, that my mom will spend time with us, as it heals my broken heart still.
Was the experience dream like in any way? No
Describe in detail your feelings/emotions during the experience: I was so happy because it just reconfirms that she is always thinking of us as well.
Was there any emotional healing in any way following the experience? Yes
Even though I am a Christian, I still waiver in my faith about if my mom is thinking of us and how much time has gone by since her death so that's when I always ask for reassurance from her and she usually gives us a sign within the week.

Did you have any changes of attitudes or beliefs following the experience? No Did the experience give you any spiritual understandings such as life, death, afterlife, God, etc.?
