Experience description:  

A few days after our mother died, my sister and I were laid in bed talking about our 'mum' All of a sudden I became aware of an unbelievable sense of peacefulness and happiness, I couldn't move my arms and legs and felt paralyzed. On looking up there was a haze over my bed and half over my sisters bed, I could not see a body or hear talking but I knew it was mum and she was telling us she was very happy and at peace. This experience happened in July 1973.

On holiday in Turkey May 2011, I had gone to bed thinking about my daughter who had just found out her twin babies had died inside her at 16 weeks. At the time she did not know the sex of the babies. During the night I again had a similar experience as before. I entered a room where I could see a lady sat in a chair with two tiny babies in her left arm both wrapped in blue shawls with just their little faces showing. I could not see the lady's face but as soon as she spoke I realized it was my mum  and  realized  these were my daughters babies .I sensed she was very proud of the babies and so pleased to have them. She said ' I have come to collect the babies, I will look after them they are safe with me'

 Again such peacefulness was unbelievable. The vision then started to move backwards and fade away. Two days later my daughter gave birth to baby boys Edward and William.
