Experience description:  

Let me start by saying my mom and dad are passed and both of my in-laws  , mostly they talk to me in my dreams , the main reason I'm writing this is because when my dad passed me and my sisters were holding my dad's hands as he was passing and all of a sudden the lights and the sink in the room started going on and off on and off , it was unreal and quite scary . The nurse walked in and saw this and said in all my years of working here , I've never seen anything like it ! Fast forward April 23rd of this year , had a total hysterectomy , when I woke up my husband was with me and said how are you feeling and I said good I just had a nice conversation with my dad ! He looked at me funny but I was very serious! My dad told me everything is going to be alright ! They all talk to me when I'm sleeping ? Ever since my surgery I hear tiny tiny bells? Does anyone know what this means ? One more when my father in law passed , I was in a light sleep , He passed right though me that it moved my bed , that was a little frightening !
