Experience description:  

My first experience was at the time of finding out that my partner was found dead. I was crying uncontrollably when I heard and saw a little blue wren tapping on the window and flapping his wings like he was trying to get my attention.  There were two people with me at the time but only I seemed to notice it. My partner Darren knew I had a fondness for these birds so it seemed to me he was letting me know he was ok.  The second experience I was in bed had just drifted off to sleep and said to Darren in my head its good to be in your arms again feeling his arms around me and my back to his chest, I then heard his voice audibly say" I believe you "to which I awoke and still felt him there. I didn't want to move as I knew it wasn't a dream and wanted to stay in his arms but then he was gone. The third time I was drifting off again as I've had trouble sleeping, when a bright light was right in front of my eyes, I could look straight at it, it wasn't blinding, but all I saw was light, it was gone in seconds and I sat up trying to work out what it was as the room was completely dark. I believe it to be Darren again reassuring me everything will be ok.
