Angie D's ADCs
experiences is having people who are deceased that I never knew contacting me to
give messages to people who are alive (and sometimes not all that close to me).
However, the messages were well-received and very significant to the receivers.
Interesting, if I choose to ignore it the deceased keeps visiting until I pay
attention and give the message. Then they never come again (you would think a
thank you would be appropriate, eh?)
Was this experience difficult to express in words? No
Did you ONLY sense an awareness of presence of the deceased without actually seeing, hearing, feeling or smelling them? No
Did you hear the deceased or hear something associated with the deceased? Yes
Describe what you heard, how clearly you heard it and what was communicated: They spoke very clearly to me and gave me specific details and instructions.
Did the voice or sound seem to originate externally or outside of you, inside you, or did you not hear a voice or sound, but had a sense of knowing what was communicated? It was clearly communicated from the person.
If you heard a voice or sound, was it similar or dissimilar from the voice or sound the deceased made when they were alive? Their voice was the same as when they were alive in the cases in which I knew them. In the case of the others I wouldn't know, as I didn't know them in life.
Is there any possibility what you heard was from any other source present in the surroundings at the time of your experience? No I was completely alone
Was there any possible impairment to your hearing at the time of the experience? No, I do have very sensitive hearing.
Did you feel a touch or experience any physical contact from the deceased? No

Similar to how they looked when they were alive, just a bit younger and healthier looking.

How much of the deceased did you see? All of them.
Did the deceased appear or not appear to be the age at which they died? No, they were all younger.
How healthy did the deceased appear to be? Completely healthy. Yes, they all were very sick and frail before death.
Is there any possibility what you saw was from any other source present in the surroundings at the time of your experience? Nope
Did you smell a distinct smell, scent, fragrance or odor associated with the deceased? Uncertain
What smell, scent, fragrance or odor did you smell? Only in the case of one particular visit, not so with the others.

Is there any possibility that the smell, scent, fragrance or odor was from any other source present in the surroundings at the time of your experience? No
How long did the experience last? Just a few moments.
Was the beginning and end of the experience gradual or more sudden? Sudden in all cases. They appeared, gave me the message, and left. I wished they could have stayed longer.
Could you sense the emotions or mood of the deceased? Yes
Absolutely, their emotions were expressed and very clear.
Did the deceased give you information you did not previously know? Yes, in all cases, it was true, helpful and I knew nothing about it prior. For example, my brother Bob came to me and told me to tell his son Jimmy that he should "go for it-Ohio" I had no idea what it meant. When I told Jimmy he explained that he got accepted to 3 medical schools (I didn't even know he had applied). One of them was Ohio and he had no idea which one to attend. He went to Ohio as a result of his Dad's advice from the grave and he has done well.
How do you currently view the reality of your experience? Experience was probably real
Please explain why you view the reality of your experience as real or not real: I have no logical evidence to argue against the experience and the messages that I received.
Was the experience dream like in any way? Yes
Yes it was like a dream- but much clearer and more real.
Describe in detail your feelings/emotions during the experience: I was slightly confused by the experience. I thought, "hmm, why me?" "Why are they giving these messages to me?" Yet I felt grateful that I could receive the messages.
Was there any emotional healing in any way following the experience? Yes
Yes, it felt good to know that I could help those on both sides of the veil.
What was the best and worst part of your experience? The guidance that I received (and was able to give to others) was the best part. The worst part was wanting more time and more answers to questions.
Has your life changed specifically as a result of your experience? Yes Describe: A dear mentor named Albert visited with me from the other side and told me where to go find his personal journal. He died the year I was born, so I never met him in life and I am not related to him. I found and read his journal (it was right where he told me it would be) and it helped me tremendously in my career and in life.
Did you have any changes of attitudes or beliefs following the experience? Yes Felt gratitude
Did the experience give you any spiritual understandings such as life, death, afterlife, God, etc.? Yes I know it is not easy for them to visit from the other side. They expressed how busy they are there and that their work is very important.
Death Compacts are when two or more living people promise among themselves that whoever dies first will try to contact the other(s). Have you ever made such a compact? Yes
No, my best friend Donna promised to come back to me (and me to her) after death. She passed away, but never came to visit me. However, she was very wrapped up in her grand-children's lives before she died. I guess that if she had the opportunity to come back she would choose to visit them, not me.

Yes, the sense of time is distorted in a bizarre way. Seeming both like it was a long time and a brief moment.
