Experience description:  

I was very upset about attending the funeral and my husband came to me in a dream. I remember visiting a house with a winding staircase, I had to walk to the top of it. when I reached the top there was a room and I opened the door and saw my husband on the bed alive. I said to him ' oh my god, you're alive I was so scared I thought you died' and he said ' I did, but I'm fine'. I said to him that I was going to his funeral today and he said ' I know'. I then looked at him and I saw that he looked very different almost plastic like. He was also looking at himself up and down and thinking how strange he looked. I made a joke that it looked like he had Botox and he laughed. then we went outside on the street and I noticed that he was not walking but was almost 2 inches off the ground floating. I told him how upset I was and he said to me that I shouldn't be upset that where he went was 'cool'. he said to me do you want to see where I went and I said yes. by now I was holding our 9 year old daughters hand and he led me to an entrance, a large round glowing white light entrance. he told me I had to leave Anya outside and I had to come in but leave as soon as I went in to the circle. I held his hand and I went in. I felt such warmth and heat and relaxation and he told me that was what he felt when he died and then he made me go straight back out of the circle. I felt cold again and was with Anya, I then woke up. 

After I woke up I went and told my brother Sanj and he had had virtually the same dream as me at the same time with the same staircase. he did not see any circle but he remembers seeing Anya standing crying by herself and he went to comfort her. 

the following night Anya also dreamed about her dad and she said he came to get her and told her that he was fine and that he took her to the shops and it was an expensive shop but everything was cheap, he said he also took her somewhere else but she cannot remember. 

All 3 of us feel very shocked and yet at peace with our dreams and know that he genuinely visited each of us as we are so close. I am a lawyer, my brother an architect and so we are amazed by our dream. people may think us mad but we know he came to reassure us.

The amazing thing is that when I did see him for the first time at the funeral parlor the day after my dream the building was the same as my dream, his coffin was in the same position as the bed he was in in my dream and he looked just like my dream- as if he had Botox- he prepared me for what I was to see and made me realize his soul was separate from his physical body. Isn't that amazing?
