Experience description:  

normally when I have a dream with someone it is right at the time of their passing. With my father I saw him in this dream on the floor with a pair of bright white tennis shoes on. That is what made me pay special attention to this dream because my father was very specific about the shoes he wore and they were always grey new balance. I have had communication like this for most of my life so i went in search of my father// finding out if anyone had heard from him etc.. he lived in New Mexico and I in az. Nobody had heard from him so we had a neighbor open his house where they found him deceased on the floor of his bedroom.

My Papa is a completely different dream. I knew he had cancer and was very ill. He came to me one night and we were sitting across from each other at a table in a dimly lit room, we spent hours it seemed talking about everything and really nothing important. He then got up and said well I gotta go I love you and everything is alright. I told him I loved him too and at that point I was awakened by the phone and it was my grandmother calling to have me tell my father that my papa had passed.

The dream with the girl on the airplane from Scotland was kind of bizarre. I was sitting on the flight with her and we were sitting across the aisle from each other and stared at each other the entire time the plane was going down. There were no words but the communication was incredible. There was such a peaceful feeling. while all around us there was such chaos going on, here face remained calm and peaceful. I will never forget her face. The next morning I went to my moms where on the news was the story of the crash.

Recently I had a husband of a friend of mine pass away from brain cancer. He came to me in my dream and told me that he was confused and scared. I have never had one like this and I didn't really know what to tell him except that I had heard that there was a light that he should see and that he should go towards it. He then told me that he did not want to leave his wife and that he was going to stay with her..
