Experience description:  

I was extremely distraught and agitated due to my mother's death and the circumstances surrounding it; while ly ing awake after a bad dream, I suddenly felt extreme gentleness and transfer of serenity come to me this was characteristic of my mother's caring character here in this incarnate life.  I was having a difficult time forgiving actions of family members I did not understand; it seemed like I was being urged to let go of the burdens I had imposed on myself.  This reoccurred but with less definition (or intensity) early Wednesday.  Also twice when getting in my car and turning on the radio in the space of a few days I heard the song that says 'don't stop thinking about tomorrow, yesterday is gone, yesterday is gone' (message to me?)
