I sat down to quiet my mind. Then I felt my mothers' presence. She was there. She was with me. She was trying to communicate with me. Her presence was strong. Still, I didn't think she had passed away. I thought she was just trying to remind me to stop by her house after work. I had planned to do that. I did not physically see her or audibly hear her speak, but she let me know telepathically that she was with me. I guess she came to say good-bye. I wish I would've never left her. Shortly thereafter, my supervisor came to the building where I work. He told me it was urgent I call home. That's when I found out she had passed away and I left my workplace to be with her. A little too late to help her anymore. I still miss her terribly and feel guilty for not being there with her but I know she is in a better place. God Bless her.
grandfather died, he was living in Montana and we were living in Washington
state. I was a child at that time. My mother got the call from her brother. She
dropped the phone and ran crying to the bedroom. I did not hear the conversation
my mother had with her brother when he told her but I "knew" what it was about
because when my dad came into the room where I was playing with my dolls and
asked me what was wrong with mom, I heard church bells ringing in a far off
distance and told my dad in a nonchalant manner "Grampa Died" A few days later,
my mom was ironing some clothes and she looked up and saw the ghost of my
grandpa (her father) standing next to her. HE commented to her "So this is
Nancy" referring to my baby sister he had never seen. He, too stopped by to say
Was this experience difficult to express in words? No
Did you see the deceased? No
How do you currently view the reality of your experience? Experience was definitely real
Please explain why you view the reality of your experience as real or not real: While growing up, my mother had the ability to always know if I was having difficulties or she thought I should come home and she was able to let me know her thoughts at a distance telepathically. I know what that feeling is and I know she can still do it at any distance. She had the gift of unconditional love for her family.
Was the experience dream like in any way? No
Describe in detail your feelings/emotions during the experience: I felt concerned because I wasn't sure what she was trying to tell me or why her spirit sense was so strong in the room. It must have been frustrating for her to try to communicate to me and get no response.
What other attitudes and beliefs about your experience do you currently have?
That's it..Life goes on..even after death..Makes me wonder sometimes..who, really ,is the dead ones? Here or there?
Did the experience give you any spiritual understandings such as life, death, afterlife, God, etc.? Yes, Just another confirmation that our soul carries on.
What emotions did you feel during the experience? Sadness. Denial- that she was gone. Appreciation-that she stopped by to say goodbye before she left.
Was the experience witnessed or experienced by others? Yes
MY supervisor at that time had a nagging feeling he could not shake. It was "Like a message from God" he told me. As he was trying to concentrate on his work at hand, he kept receiving a message in his head to tell ME, his co-worker, to go home. HE didn't know why I should go home and didn't know what to tell me and tried to ignore the feeling but felt it was urgent. When he finally received a telephone call from my sister to contact me to "call Home", He understood that the "message" he had been receiving was urgent and he came to my place of work to inform me to call home.
Were there any associated medications or substances with the potential to affect the experience? No
Following the experience, have you had any other events in your life, medications or substances which reproduced any part of the experience? No
Did you ever in your life have a near-death experience, out of body experience or other spiritual event? Yes
During the birth of my son, I may have had a near death experience because I had no drugs and he was delivered natural, but I saw my whole life flash before my eyes as if it was on a movie camera speeded up. This didn't last very long but it was my whole life I saw! Just like a movie on fast forward...Strange........
