Experience description:  

While explaining to my children that Grandma was about to die and to get ready to go to the hospital my eldest child's face was turned side ways to me as she was telling me that she did not want to see her step Grandmother that way. As she spoke I saw a puff of neon green smoke exit her mouth or else it came from behind her and only appeared to come from her mouth. When we reached the hospital the grandmother was dead already. I don't know exactly the moment of death but it could have been at the moment of the appearance of the green smoke. 

I have considered over the years what the significance of the green color was and my only conclusion is that Connie's birth month was May and we had given her a beautiful Emerald ring which she had returned to me shortly before her death to give to my youngest daughter. For some reason I feel intuitively that that is the significance of the green color.

Did the deceased give you information you did not previously know?  only that Connie might have died and that I was able to sense a possible presence. This came at a time in my life when I could use a confirmation that there was something more than just this life. I was not convinced but it gave me something to think about.

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

            Please explain why you view the reality of your experience as real or not real:           For lack of a clearer choice I will say that I did see it. I know it wasn't really with my physical eyes although it seemed that way. What I saw I can't really say.

            Was the experience dream like in any way?   No

Describe in detail your feelings/emotions during the experience:           Sad that she was dying and sad that I had to put my children through the experience.

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

I felt that there was a slight possibility of life after death where prior to that I felt that it was unlikely.

What was the best and worst part of your experience?      That whatever it was I was able to see it and therefore if it was an after death communication I was very privileged. That is the best part and the worst is that I can never know for sure.

Has your life changed specifically as a result of your experience?         No      

What other attitudes and beliefs about your experience do you currently have?         
it could have been a hallucination but if so it picked a very convenient time to appear          

Did you have any changes of attitudes or beliefs following the experience?
   Uncertain      I seem to be a skeptic still

Did the experience give you any spiritual understandings such as life, death, afterlife, God, etc.?            Uncertain      It gave me a slight hope but I feel that there is only one true way to find out if there is life after death and that is to die. It really won't matter whether there is or there isn't because if there is I'll know then and if there isn't I won't know anyway.

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?        Yes

With my husband. The deceased was not in the compact.

Have you shared this experience with others?        

Yes     Interested although they can only trust that I am telling them facts.

Did you ever in your life have a near-death experience, out of body experience or other spiritual event?           Yes 

Besides visitations in dreams which people will pass off as just dreams even though I wouldn't. I have been saved from injury and death in a couple of unexplainable ways. I have had dreams of events which were taking place at that exact moment elsewhere. I have had unusual things appear or happen at the exact moment in which I needed them and had just been sincerely wishing for them; things which couldn't be explained how they come about.

Did the questions asked and information you provided accurately and comprehensively describe your experience?               Yes

It was a simple event so easily explained 

Please offer any suggestions you may have to improve this questionnaire.    no
