Experience description:  

I was sitting in my living room thinking of my mother that had recently passed away. I was wondering why she did not give any signs from "the other side" she had promised me and the rest of the family to try to if it was possible. Both my sons had experienced how their TV sets had turned on themselves at odd hours, like one was on when my oldest son came home from work and my youngest son experienced how the TV turned on by itself 2 times at different occasions. My sister had experienced how she one morning woke up and felt as her body was electrified and than she fell asleep again and when she woke up the second time her clock had stopped at 7.20. Sitting in my living room I was wondering why I did not get any signs I had been with my mother every day for the last year and we had talked about the sign and I had not gotten one. Not one that I was aware of. I than said loud and clear "mother now I want to have a sign to but not TV sets going on or off or clocks stopping I like you to if possible send and animal to my house a fox or something". About 1-1 hour later I was hearing as strange sound outside and opened the door it was evening around 7 and still some snow out so I could see the darkness of an animal all of a sudden it "barked" so powerful it made me jump and it ran back and forth "barking" like that for about maybe 2-3 minutes than it took of to the forest again. it was a fox I recognized the "Barking" I started smiling saying "oh mamma you managed it". It was a very magic feeling I called my sons they both got very happy as did my sister. My husband also heard the fox and was amazed it had come so close to the house and was right outside our living room door. For about 2 weeks after this experience we kept seeing foxes allot crossing roads or running over fields. That when our area is not that fox rich. This was a one time experience with the fox at my home and it has not come back. For me it is very significant and I believe it was my mother that arranged this from the other side to give me a sign I could understand. A TV that goes off and on does not convince me as strong as this fox-experience did. This fox that was walking back and forth "barking" outside my living room door. I often think of this and smile.

            Was the experience dream like in any way?   No 

Describe in detail your feelings/emotions during the experience:           I felt very happy because I felt mamma had heard my wish and also wanted me to be calm and not sad. So she did this for me as a sign from beyond. That is what I believe


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

being sad over mothers death and feeling also she was now relieved from severe cancer pains and in a place I might not be able to understand and don't know much about but I got this feeling she is not in pain anymore.

Did you have any changes of attitudes or beliefs following the experience?
    attitude changed from grief to more positive mood. I missed and still miss my mother but it is not as painful as it was.

Did the experience give you any spiritual understandings such as life, death, afterlife, God, etc.?            Yes     It made me believe more in life after death, because how often does a fox come when you wish for it and how often does it come so close to the door and walks up and down "barking"? It has never happened before or afterwards either so far. Also the whole family saw allot of foxes within a short time after this experience all independent of each other. So I believe this was my mother arranging the fox experience to keep her promise to give me a personal sign about life after death.

I was going into a spin in a white blue spiral and a humming sound was there to I landed in a dark dark area and I was on all my 4:s. I felt s if there was soft cool sand under my hands. I said to myself I am dead now but where is the light. No light in the tunnel? I looked to the left and there was a big big green field I walked over it to a city where all houses were yellow. it also seemed to be back in time in like the 1950:ies. The streets had no pavement in this town. One house got my attention it had a long wooden stairway up to the door it had many doorbells where all the names started with an U. I selected one of the U's and rang the bell and I heard steps come to open and before I could see who it was I came back into my body just lie that faster than the light it seemed.
