I am a Christian and did not know and would not have believed this 40 day-visitation of the soul until my mum passed away in December last year. The first week or during the 9 days after her passing, there were signs that she came to visit me by unmistakable smells and fragrance. The first one was the unmistakable smell of my mother with her skin moisturizer; the second one was the same smell plus fragrance of a flower which I did not really know what kind of flower it was. The third time which lasted the longest, about 6 to 8 seconds was totally the fragrance of the flower which was a strong fragrance. The next day I went to my friend's house and his friend who was staying with him got to know about this and went to my friend's garden and brought back some flowers which is JASMINE and it was exactly 100% the fragrance I experienced the night before.
After that, I am a total believer in this 40 day-visitation. My church actually forbids us to believe in all this and told us that the soul sleeps after death until resurrection day but now I Know this is not true - the soul does visit their loved-ones and give signs to try to comfort them. I am comforted by the signs but I am still in great agony because the loss is real in a physical sense where I could not see her physically anymore and I do not have the chance anymore to care for her, cook for her, wash her laundry, buy her favorite foods, etc.. And now that she is gone, I only realized that it was a privilege and enjoyment to serve her while she was alive because we enjoyed talking to each other very much and she was always there for me no matter what! And I will always remember that My Mother is the only person in the world that truly loves me unconditionally.

Describe what you heard, how clearly you heard it and what was communicated: On three occasions not long after her passing, she called my name once into my left ear and immediately I would wake up from my sleep but whatever dream I had then before I woke up was not related to her. And recently, she called my name once again, but this time not into my left ear but still from the left side, and immediately I woke up again. On those occasions, it was clearly her voice.

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

Was there any emotional healing in any way following the experience? Yes Yes, but I am still in deep grief but at least, I can now move around, eat and conduct the daily chores that need to be done.
What was the best and worst part of your experience? The best part was that I knew my mum is still watching over me but then, the fragrance never came again after that and it has been about 3 months after that Jasmine fragrance. And so, I guess the worst part of the experience is to wait for another experience and wonder if my mother's visit will become less frequent as time goes by which I hope, is not the case!
