Experience description:  

When my husband passed, I put his wedding ring on my thumb and wore it to bed.  When I woke, the ring was not on my thumb or anywhere else.  I was not worried, kidded myself that knowing him, he took it back.  A couple months later, he appeared to me, while asleep, showing his glowing rapturous healthy face, and made his hand and arm materialize so I could see the ring on his finger.  He then faded back into the darkness.  I have never felt such love and comfort, and knew that everything was going to be okay.  He has since come to let me know that the ring was our ring from a previous life (he had picked it out from estate sale).  He has left many other signs, missed phone call from his defunct cell phone, moving things.  He always chided me for using too much toilet paper.  One morning, I left an empty paper roll on the counter and took a shower.  When I got out of the shower, the toilet paper roll was standing upright on the floor.  He comes to me everything while in a half sleep state, and I can feel him touching and moving my body.  He sends swirling words through the darkness behind my eyes, but they go to fade.  I tell him to slow them down and he tries.  They say love and happy.  He appears as a shape changing yellow orb.  It's been more than a year since he passed and it's still strong.
