Experience description:  

I lost my wonderful boss/friend to cancer and shortly after, accepted a new position that I was extremely unhappy about. I was sitting in my backyard smoking a cigarette and talking silently with the deceased, asking her to please give me guidance. Suddenly, my body had a freezing sensation to my core. I also felt a pressure between my eyes like someone was pushing with their thumb. I knew she was there. I could feel it. There was a feeling of love and peace. It lasted approximately 30 seconds and when it was over I felt renewed and loved. I've had visits before but nothing like this.
