Experience description:  

I had a dream that I was with my Great Aunt at a park like facility with newly planted trees and pathways. In this dream I was pushing her wheelchair to try to get her to sit down and she was sort of running from the wheelchair and making hand motions like pushing the chair away, not clear is she really spoke or grunted, like she didn't want to be restricted anymore and wanted to go and sort of pointed toward more elderly folks sort of roaming around everywhere. Then I woke up and I just knew, I called my Mother and without any hesitation I told her that she should check on Auntie Next Door, I think she died or is going to die today. My Mother then immediately called her brother and sister in law who had been caring for her, and before she said anything, they told my Mom that they were on their way to the hospital because Auntie had an episode and is unconscious. When they got to the hospital they had already pronounced her death.

Was this experience difficult to express in words?  Yes

I can't explain the certainty that I had after the dream and what the dream meant. Still to this day I can't explain how I picked up the phone as soon as I woke up and said to my Mother those exact words, to check on Auntie Next Door, I think she died or is going to die today.

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?  I clearly had a dream about my Great Aunt not wanting to be assisted in any way anymore. She wanted to go...When I woke up I had a sense of knowing.

Did you feel a touch or experience any physical contact from the deceased?            No

Did you see the deceased?         Yes

In my dream she was older and still feeble. Her hair was died black in the dream, she had let that go for a while and had 100 white hair.

Did you smell a distinct smell, scent, fragrance or odor associated with the deceased?      No comment

How do you currently view the reality of your experience?           Experience was probably real

            Was the experience dream like in any way?   Yes

It was a dream.     

Describe in detail your feelings/emotions during the experience:           In my dream I was just trying to get her to sit in the wheelchair and she kept arching away from it.

What was the best and worst part of your experience?      Best is if it was really her trying to communicate to me that she didn't want the assisted care anymore.

Has your life changed specifically as a result of your experience?         No      

Did you have any changes of attitudes or beliefs following the experience?

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

Yes, with my Grandmother I have a few separate experiences that before she died, my sister and I both asked her that if she dies that she will come back as something that we both would know it was her and on separate occasions, we both know my Grandma is an Orange Butterfly.

Did you observe or hear anything regarding people or events during your experience that could be verified later?          Uncertain

What emotions did you feel during the experience?            After my Mother confirmed that I was right, it was a little strange, my family were sort of in shock plus they felt like that might happen when they pass away and they said for me not to tell them when. I assured them that if I had another dream like that about them, they won't care because they already passed.

Was the experience witnessed or experienced by others?           Uncertain

Sort of because when I woke up I called my Mother and said that she needed to check on Auntie Next door because she died, or is going to die today.

Following the experience, have you had any other events in your life, medications or substances which reproduced any part of the experience?         No 

Did you ever in your life have a near-death experience, out of body experience or other spiritual event?           Uncertain
