Experience description:  

For a long time prior I felt time was slipping away from us.

Like a clock strapped to my back. I feared a tornado or something happening to him. But could not put my finger on why I felt this.  

At experience , I thought I was dreaming of a beautiful white slope and a fence and a church. Kind of like my street. Yet I did not know it. Then I was awoken to loud voices. Close in my ear like a crowded elevator. But not recognizing the words . They were male voices. Then I was fully awaken. ON my bed Bob, my ex husbands face appeared big like a projection. I felt like I was kneeling on my bed and looking at my wall or something . Like I was startled out of my sleep. I knew I woken and knew my surroundings and things around my room. I was shocked to see him. He was smiling a young boyish grin when I knew him at 23. Except with deeper chin lines. He was so proud he broke through! His eyes gleamed of open skies and knowledge and love. All of a sudden I was telling him how much I missed him and when I tried to contact me. He told me telepathically he knew every attempt I had made, all in his eyes came a message. That I just simply understood. We were not talking by our mouths. He quieted me. Said he loved me and forgave me for not forgiving him and his many attempts to contact me in the earlier years after the separation when we were young. It took a split second for these messages to be relayed. He then said I have something to show you laughing and strongly with loving eyes guiding me to be quiet. As if there was not much time for him. I felt us rushed.  A loud bell was clanging in my ears bothering me but beckoning him to come, it seemed in the background. He then sent me  the most unusual but wonderful shock full of electricity sending his love. It electrified me from head to toes. I was stunned laying on my back then somehow. Like an electric current straight thru my core. Good, pure just golden sunshine. Then he laughed and did it again.

I knew instantly this was his love and then gods. I was paralyzed like in ecstasy but also knowing the secret of the universe. It was unexplainable yet I knew everything. (When we were married we debated religion. I was catholic he was an atheist. He used to tease me, because he liked his cigarettes and beer but he had a wonderful great sense of humor he knew I loved. He used to say ld say, Well I am gonna die first, so I will find you and let you know what's on the other side if I was right!" He was never at my home where I am so he found me. The shock he sent was once for love for me but somehow driven by another I felt it as the second. Just to prove his point without a doubt. As if I could doubt it. It was the most wonderful experience of my life.   

After the shock I became aware of my big huge ear to ear smile on my face. And I said out loud to myself . Bob where the heck are you? I did not know he passed away 3 years before! I found out by a Google afterwards that opened to his obituary and I reached his family to confirm. He had cancer, a bum hip and in a lot of pain with a cane. He was sad for his home life feeling very lonely. Unfortunately we never made it but I know he talked about me to his parents so I know he missed me.  

Afterwards for an entire year I cried and grieved for our loss very heavily. I also wished I should have been there to help him. I cried often. Lights went out often sometimes tripled at work in the hall. Nothing was wrong with the bulb. I think it was him staying near me when I needed it. I was overburdened because I was also having other family problems. But I knew he sent me a message of his love that he was okay and I will be okay too. It is still very clear in my head that shock and his incredible sky eyes. So now, I think God told him he has more to do. I feel his presence or wish for him. But I think he was only allowed 1 time to contact me. He had a beautiful sole so I think God has more for him to do in heaven.   

For the skeptics. I would not dream him in another place. I did not know he passed away. 

PS The next year I found out a friend also had an near death experience (NDE) having a heart attack. But we shared the same shock but touching a river along on his walk in the woods as if when he was a child with a friend . He did not know my ex-husband it was at different times. He was dead for 45 seconds.
