Patsy P's ADC

Experience description:  

I had been going through tremendous stress at a job my father wanted me to quit.

I was shaking in upset. making dinner, turned around to open the refrigerator and had a partial vision (a man was standing just outside the kitchen door, wearing my dads dark blue gym shorts and a grey tee-shirt my dad used to wear with a red and white tiny circular emblem. same height as my dad, a sense of wrinkled skin. the face was not visualized. I looked again and he was gone. then I thought maybe a burglar was in the house. and I looked again and then I knew someone was there. I felt very scared because I instinctively knew someone was there, but I couldn't see anyone. I said "poppy, what are you doing over there, you scared me"?

"What are you trying to communicate?"  I felt harmonious, calm and cleansed for a full day. the next day went to turn the stove on to cook dinner and there was a rattler snake sitting on top of the stove, wrapped around all these objects and difficult to remove. wonder if my dad came about the unfinished business of wanting me out of my job. he also wanted me out of my house because I am not near family and am all alone.
