Experience description:  

My aunt, my mom's sister had died. I could not go to the funeral as my leg was in a cast. I never questioned about the funeral either. My uncle was completely torn apart and crying for her every night. All he did was talk about her and how much he missed her. I usually saw him a couple times a month while he was visiting my mom. Months later I had a dream. I was in my pajamas, and I was floating up in the air and I saw a door open and my aunt come out of the door. We got very close and as we did I felt this immense pull/attraction like she was a magnet. She was wearing a very long blue dress. She said, "don't touch me", and then she said, "Tell Eugene to kiss me goodbye." She looked younger like I remembered her looking when I was a child. I then suddenly woke up.

I didn't understand the message, but told my uncle anyway. I tried to tell him that she was indeed alive in that other dimension, but he couldn't understand. He then told me that every night at bedtime he says to her picture, "Goodnight Jeana." But in my dream she was telling me she wanted him to kiss her GOODBYE. He didn't understand. He went on grieving for a long time, and then he joined her a few yrs later. He also told me that at the funeral she was wearing a very long blue dress.........
