Experience description:  

I went to sleep and I was taken by my Guides and Angels to see my son. I had to know that he had crossed over. I really, really needed to know! 

My first memory of this dream visit to the Heaven on other side was me, standing at the foot of a bed where Edward was laying. There were pearly, white sheets that were on the bed and covering Ed to mid chest. The white we know pales in comparison to the white I saw...it was as though I could tell what the sheets felt like without even touching them......like a butterfly wing, or the petal of a flower. Heavenly soft.....And there was a sort of pearl-ized look to them. Very extraordinary pearly fabric.... Edward, laying there with this heavenly fabric pulled up to mid chest....He had the most sheepish grin on his face...(that would be my Ed!).....his arms were up above his head and it looked as though he was stretching, like he was waking up...and he had that half grin smile of his on his face that was so, so Edward!....(He smiled all the time.....)....I noticed his eyes were closed, he never looked at me or spoke to me.....just this sheepish grin on his handsome face. His skin color was just perfect, sort of a healthy tan color...and he looked a little older, more mature. He looked perfectly magnificent! These colors were not any I had ever seen before.... He was turning his face to his right and I immediately noticed that he had had a hair cut, and he had short side burns....(remember, I told you the only thing he needed was a hair cut....he hated when his hair got even just a little too long. ....I used to cut his hair and I did a great job, but I have to admit that who ever cut his hair in Heaven did an awesome job!!) I loved the side burns....he would never let me leave side burns....but, what he was showing me was the back of the left side of his head, just above, and slightly behind the left ear....(where he had had a 5" long opening in his skull)......he was showing me that it was just fine. All healed......like nothing ever happened......no injury at all.... Then I noticed that he was moving his right leg under the sheets....The pearly fabric seemed to change ever so slightly, it was almost fluid-like.... as he tussled the sheet....the movement produced another, more intense appreciation for this fabric made in Heaven......his arms were up above his head and he was stretching and bending his right leg......he was showing me that his leg was just fine too. (He had a compound fracture of the right leg just below the knee. And those were his only injuries!) I believe it was that moment that I finally realized that it was just me, Ed, and the bed he was laying in out in the middle of total darkness...like floating, but no sensation of floating or moving at all. This was happening in the heavenly darkness...And I never spoke, but I 'sensed' or 'received' that there were beings there, and they were there for me....they were my angels and my guides who had brought me on this dream visit........ They stood back in the shadows while I cherished seeing my son again.....In my heart I already knew that he was OK, but like I said before, I was going crazy not knowing if he crossed........... Then the damn phone rang! Rrrrrgh! And I was waking up and answering the phone in my bed.
