Experience description:

for me - I was at a workshop that involved spiritual healing. There were probably 200 other people in the room as well, but I felt this peace and calm come over me. I had been crying, feeling an enormous amount of grief being released, when I looked up. This clouded veil seem to be present in front of me. The veil suddenly lifted, and there was my mother, brother, grandma and aunt. My Mom reached out and touched the side of my face with her hand and smiled. She said "I am so glad that your heart is finally open". She smiled and patted my face once again. I then looked at each of the others of which they were all smiling as well. My aunt then says to tell my uncle that I saw her and that she was fine, as she had only passed 6 months prior.  Although this has now been over a year and 1/2 now, I remember the touch like it was yesterday and no doubt in my mind it was as real as I am sitting here at the computer.

****** my dad - Pop has been not doing as well physically these past few years, but is as sharp as they come.  He will wake during the night by either someone tapping his shoulder, or by my mother laying down next to him in his bed. He said that he can feel not only the bed crease, but can feel their breath on the back of his neck.  The 2 small children many times are either up by the head of the bed or simply at the foot of the bed, merely watching him. Sometimes they do run out the door and down the hall
