Experience description:  

My wife came to me a few nights ago as real as I'm sitting here writing. I was laying on my left side in a light twilight sleep when I felt her arms around me.  I didn't move for a few seconds. I was afraid to lest she go away. Then in my soul body I dared to turn toward her. I said, "Oh, Honey, I miss you so much!" She said, "I miss you too." We embraced, her hair, was long brown like she wore it in her 30s. I could feel it on my face.  I could feel her and smell her hair. We snuggled, kissed and lovingly caressed each others faces. We spoke some more, telling each other how much we missed each other, among other things.  She had tears rolling down her face and I kissed them. They were sweet, loving tears, joyful for our meeting.  It's hard to put what we said into words. It was words, but yet not. It is hard to describe it all.  I asked if she met anyone there. I wanted be sure she was Ok and safe. She calmly said yes, then it all faded away.   

I had asked my spiritual teacher inwardly earlier in the evening to bring her to me if she wanted to come. I sang HU a spiritual chant, asking once again as I fell asleep.
