Experience description:

I went to sleep for a short time and set my clock radio to a station that had a commercial on it at the time so I didn't know what kind of station it was or what kind of music they played. Right before I fell asleep after I had shut my eyes and my mind was preparing to dream but I wasn't asleep yet, I saw the face of a woman that was smiling at me, suddenly appear, she was in her early 30's and attractive but not drop dead gorgeous, just beautiful in a serene way.  When I saw her I immediately noticed muscles in my forehead immediately relax that I didn't know had been tense, and I laughed out loud. I thought to myself how powerful the effects of a smile from an attractive person looking deep into my soul validating me, could be. I went to sleep and in my dream I saw my Grandmother that I haven't dreamt about or seen for at least 10 years. It all seemed really natural. We were at a distinct place in my home, a storage room that I have my clothes hanging on a rack, this is where I get dressed for work.

She was standing by the rack leaning on it somewhat in a space between clothes, close to the metal bar that the clothes are hung on. We talked about some important things that were taken from my memory, but I did remember saying how much she looked like an aunt of mine whose name curiously was "Mercy." I made it a point to look as deep as possible into her soul by looking into her eyes.  I looked really deeply into her eyes as if to gain knowledge about the nature and reality of her soul. They were a blue gray color and very serene. I was going through a really difficult time in my life and little did I know that there were going to be much harder times later that very day. After the dream I realized that younger pictures of my Grandma really do resemble my aunt "Mercy" a lot.

I awoke to a song on the radio "Someone's thinking of you in that great somewhere out there" I knew with an inner knowing that it was a message to tell me it wasn't just a dream. I'm very into meaningful and beautiful music and I find a lot of comfort from music. Later, after I was awake thinking of this experience my whole body started reverberating with chills, in waves. I knew that it was my Grandma's energy telling me she was there and that my dream had been a real experience.  I know that I am more receptive and relaxed and able to communicate with spirits when they appear to me in a dream. 

The bible recounts an angel appearing to Joseph in a dream to tell him to not be afraid to take Mary to wife, and then again to warn him to flee Egypt. So I know angels and deceased loved ones DO appear to us in dreams and if we don't brush it off but give it a lot of attention, we'll have more experiences because our loved ones know that it won't be a waste of their time to come and talk with us.  Later that day my wife told me she wanted to walk out on me and my children, she said she felt like she was a failure and that everyone would be better off without her, I know that my experience with my grandma was significant in telling me how important it was that I hang in there with my wife.
