Experience description:  

My dad passed away almost a year ago and my mother passed away almost two years ago.  They passed away within 7 months of each other.  Since they have passed they have visited me frequently in my dreams.  If you ever wonder if the deceased help you while you are on this planet, I can tell you from direct experience that they most definitely do.

This is the strangest experience that has ever happened to me.  I had been depressed about living in these rundown townhomes lately.  I couldn't let my kids play with the other kids in the neighborhood because the other kids were delinquents.  It was noisy here and the guy next door beat his girlfriend.  It was a depressing place and I wanted to get out of there for months.  I had given up on that dream however because my credit was ruined by a con artist 3 years prior.  I was lying awake one night trying to figure out what to do, should I move into my parents old house even though it was run down and decrepit or try and find another place to rent?  My thoughts however kept retuning to a little neighborhood that I have wanted to live in for 3 years.  It is a beautiful neighborhood right around the corner from me - quiet, where the kids play in a beautiful playground and there are a lot of parents supervising them.  The yards are beautiful and the houses are just outstanding looking! I was thinking about this neighborhood when I drifted off to sleep.  My mother appeared to me in my dream and she said simply :I am going to help you get a house".  I argued with her "Mother that is RIDICULOUS!  First of all my credit is bad, secondly you are dead--how can you even help me!" She repeated calmly "I am going to help you get a house" then I woke up.  So I woke up the next day and I called my bank to try and get a mortgage.  Of course I couldn't.  Then I tried to apply at another bank and got turned down. 

I started thinking that I would have to rent or lease to own. The thought of the little  neighborhood around the corner just wouldn't leave me alone though.  I had a dream a few weeks later that I was walking in one of the houses in the neighborhood.  I remember it was perfect and I was so happy. The only thing I really remember about it was that it had coffered ceilings. There was another lady there looking at it and she was short with black hair and had a foreign accent.  She assured me in my dream that she was not going to buy it.  She looked like a younger version of my mother.  she said "don't worry I am saving your house for you".  Then I woke up.  I decided on a whim the next day I would scour that neighborhood for a house that might be for rent or for sale by owner.  And although I performed searches nearly everyday, I had somehow missed one house.  It was for sale by owner and they would do a lease purchase.

I called for a showing.  When I walked in the front door, it had coffered ceilings!  The realtor/owner seemed pessimistic as the house would be foreclosed on in two weeks.  I told her I would ask the trustee of my trust fund to see if I could get some money for a down payment.  I was of course turned down.  I really thought I had explored all avenues and had accepted the fact that I had fought the good fight and that there was just no hope.  Around the same time I became very ill and was awake almost all night, up sick.  In between running back and forth to the bathroom I fell asleep at one point and had a very brief dream.  I dreamt I was in the hospital and my parents were standing at the end of my bed.  "We're going to help you"  "Oh thank God you are here" I said "I am really sick and not only that but I am not going to be able to get that house and I am so sad"  My parents looked at each other then me again and said "don't worry we are going to help you.  You'll see"

then I woke up. The next day I got a call from my financial advisor.  As it turned out, there was a life insurance policy my dad had they were going to disburse.  The amount was 50K , which was the same amount I needed for the down payment for the lease purchase!  However, they didn't know if they could get it to me in time.  Two days before the foreclosure, I got the money, made the down payment and now I am literally living in the "house of my dreams".

Just amazing.  The first day I moved in I screamed out "Thank you mom and dad!!!!!"
