Peter L's ADC
I have had a few experiences and I will be happy to share them with you. One experience was with someone who is still alive, my mother who also experienced the event during sleep. My fiancÚ also experienced something similar with her mother while she was alive, her mother is now the deceased involved in my ADC.
The first part of the ADC occurred close to her death. I was in my bed when suddenly the while room was shrouded in bright light, the common features of the room remained and my girlfriends mother sat on the side of the bed next to my girlfriend, she told me how we were all doing well and how we shouldn't cry for her, especially my girlfriend. Then it ended as soon as it had started and I settled down to sleep, I didn't feel afraid but comforted.
I have also had more subtle experiences concerning this deceased (1) and another (1). Making three (3) in total but no more.
