Experience description:

Ok. I've had several weird dreams in my life. I've never been a believer in adc's but as time goes on, I find my beliefs changing.

The first experience was when I was a kid laying in bed I would miss my mom. My mom died when I was three years old.  I never really saw any pictures of her when I was a kid and have no real memories of her.  Yet, I could picture her on my school playground. I would daydream about her she was wearing a white beautiful dress and glowed.  When my grandmother died, I was sent all these pictures of my mom, so I got too see what she looked like. She was the same woman I pictured all those years ago. I just have always thought these were coincidences and that I was crazy until I've started studying and realizing that other people are having similar experiences. 

I've never really told people about my dreams because I always thought of them as just that - a dream.  Anyway, when I was 15,16 I had another strange dream.  I dreamt that I had died, which freaks me out to talk about it.  When I told my wife about this dream she looked freaked out and told me not to talk about it. Here I was dead and trying to help this friend of mine that was still living only she couldn't see me or hear me.  I don't think at first I realized I was dead, only I could see the dead and the living and could tell the difference.  It was scary to say the least.  I feel uncomfortable talking about it even now.  Since that dream, I think in the back of my mind that they actually are among us, only we're blind.  We don't see or hear them but we don't see the air either but its still there.

My 3rd and most real like dream was in 1997, 2 yrs after my grandfather died.  I was worried because if he did see me, he now knew I jerked off, had sex with my girlfriend, and smoked.  I always worried (and to a point still do) that he could see me and didn't approve. But in my dream, he held me and hugged me.  He advised me about what I can't recall, but I remember feeling so much closure and so much better for days/weeks after this dream.  I remember feeling wiser somehow too.  Now, I'm wondering if all these dreams meant something more than what I originally thought I had 2 yrs after my grandfather died. Although I missed him, I wasn't in constant grief or anything.  I'm not now, but yet especially lately, I have felt this presence.  I can't explain it - like the air I can't see it but it doesn't mean its not here.
