Experience description:  

A few things happened, the first was that I awoke in the middle of the night and felt a couple if books next to my feet. I awoke in the morning to find them on the floor. One was my mums favorite bird book and the other was titled "evidence of things unseen". It made me smile and I said out loud well played mum :) a few weeks later I was telling mums friend the story and she told me that I had better read the books to which I said ok but what do I read next? The next day I found a book turned to 45 degrees on the bookshelf. About a month later I had a visitation dream involving mum and it is really hard to describe the intense feeling of love, things were 'said' not really verbally. The conversation wasn't the type that I would have expected to have, it was all about love and how proud she was of me.
