Experience description:  

My late husband (Mick) came to me and took me somewhere I didn't recognize. I felt as if I was not on this earth, possibly the astral plane?? His aura was clear for me to see, lots of softly flickering colors of varying hues. I felt so safe and comfortable with him, as if we had never been apart. We discussed at length his death and how he felt at the time and what happened directly afterwards. By that I mean he explained the excruciating pain he suffered for a split second prior to his death and then the calm feeling afterwards. We seemed to speak for some time and then he was gone as quickly as he came and I fell into a deep restful sleep. I awoke 2 hours later feeling a little sad, a bit more confused/perplexed and a little more accepting of his death.

Was this experience difficult to express in words?  No

Did you hear the deceased or hear something associated with the deceased?          Yes

            Did the voice or sound seem to originate externally or outside of you, inside you, or did you not hear a voice or sound, but had a sense of knowing what was communicated?  I could hear him inside my head but it seemed like he was standing right near me talking. He was there but he wasn't. Very difficult to describe.

            If you heard a voice or sound, was it similar or dissimilar from the voice or sound the deceased made when they were alive?           It was definitely him but softer, he seemed more at peace.

            Is there any possibility what you heard was from any other source present in the surroundings at the time of your experience?           Definitely not, I live alone on a rural 300 acre property.

            Was there any possible impairment to your hearing at the time of the experience?   No

Did you feel a touch or experience any physical contact from the deceased?            No

Did you see the deceased?         Yes

            How clearly did the deceased appear?            Almost solid but not quite, kind of ethereal.

            How much of the deceased did you see?       all

            Did the deceased appear or not appear to be the age at which they died?       He appeared to be the age I remember him the most - almost 10 years younger than when he died.

            How healthy did the deceased appear to be?            He looked to be in perfect health. Prior to his death he had been on prescribed pain killers for many years due to severe chronic pain in his shoulders.

            Is there any possibility what you saw was from any other source present in the surroundings at the time of your experience?           No

Did you smell a distinct smell, scent, fragrance or odor associated with the deceased?      No

How long did the experience last?        Unsure, it seemed a long time i.e. an hour or more but I don't think it was. Time didn't seem to pass at the same speed as it does in normal day to day life.

Was the beginning and end of the experience gradual or more sudden?         When I first lay down I was very conscious/aware of my surroundings and he just seemed to appear, stay for the duration of the conversation and then was gone as quickly and unobtrusively as he appeared. I felt myself fall deeply asleep as soon as he was gone.

Could you sense the emotions or mood of the deceased?           Yes

Did the deceased give you information you did not previously know?  Only about the pain he endured at the moment he was crushed and the 'soft' feeling once he had passed over.

How do you currently view the reality of your experience?           Experience was definitely real

            Please explain why you view the reality of your experience as real or not real:           It was so unlike anything I have ever experienced and I just know he was with me at that point in time. I have often 'felt' him around me but this was different, he was there. Somewhere. I felt like he was trying to tell me he's ok, like he was trying to put my mind at rest.

            Was the experience dream like in any way?   Uncertain

It seemed very real yet not, he wasn't physically in my room, he and I were 'somewhere' but it didn't feel like it was in my head.           

Describe in detail your feelings/emotions during the experience:           a little sad, a bit more confused/perplexed and a little more accepting/understanding of his death.

Was there any emotional healing in any way following the experience?           Yes

Thoughtfulness, slight confusion, sadness, love

What was the best and worst part of your experience?      The best part was getting to be with him again and seeing he was ok and happy. The worst thing was having him leave me again.

Has your life changed specifically as a result of your experience?         Uncertain                  Describe:            It is to soon after my experience to know.

Did you have any changes of attitudes or beliefs following the experience?

Did the experience give you any spiritual understandings such as life, death, afterlife, God, etc.?  Uncertain            I've always believed in life after death etc but it was more a spiritual feeling than anything, almost as if Mick wanted me to understand what it is actually like to die.

Death Compacts are when two or more living people promise among themselves that whoever dies first will try to contact the other(s).  Have you ever made such a compact?        No
