Experience description:  

During my sleep somebody shook my shoulder strongly. I opened my eyes and there was my dead father standing by my bed. He told me "Be quick. Find your brother." I was very scared because I was totally awake when I saw him and he was so real, alive standing by my bed. I was even smelling his scent. I run to my moms room leaving him behind and wake her. It was 3.30 at night. Because she knows my dreams comes true (she has the same ability too) we make coffee and begin to wait. At 6.00 my brother came home walking. He had a car accident at 3.30. Even the police couldn't believe how they could get out of the car alive.

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:          My brother had a terrible car accident at the same minutes my father woke me up. I had several dreams which my dead ones give me messages after that and once (15 years after this experience and 8 years before now) I saw my dead ex-fiance in the middle of a shiny summer day on the street for nearly more than 20 minutes.

            Was the experience dream like in any way?   No

Describe in detail your feelings/emotions during the experience:           shocked, surprised, couldn't believe, afraid

Was there any emotional healing in any way following the experience?           Uncertain

I believe my dreams a little more and more relaxed when I saw dead ones in my dreams

What was the best and worst part of your experience?      best part was seeing my father, worst part was getting afraid and running to my mom's room instead of staying near him and trying to speak, communicate more with him. he didn't come much even to my dreams again. I lost that opportunity because of my ignorance and fear.

Did you have any changes of attitudes or beliefs following the experience?   Uncertain

My dreams were coming true all my life but this was the first experience I had which I was sure I was full awake. Maybe it caused me to pay a little more attention to my dreams. But still I was an atheist for more long years.

Did the experience give you any spiritual understandings such as life, death, afterlife, God, etc.?            Yes

this experience and the other ones I had after that made me search about dreams, life, energy etc in time (a long period later) and changed my opinions. At least I am not an atheist any more.

Did you observe or hear anything regarding people or events during your experience that could be verified later?          Yes

my brother had the car accident at the same minutes

What emotions did you feel during the experience?            shocked, surprised, couldn't believe, afraid, desperate until my brother turn back home

Did you have a sense of knowing, special knowledge, universal order and/or purpose?    No

but in some other experiences I had

Did you become aware of future events?       Yes

I was having that awareness before the experience too but I was not paying attention. I have that awareness all my life.

Did you have any psychic, paranormal or other special gifts following the experience that you did not have prior to the experience?         Uncertain

I have those gifts all my life. I am not sure if they get more fallowing the experience. But during a period (15 years after the experience) when I was making meditation they became more and more that I had to give up meditation.

Have you shared this experience with others?        


They believed. Most of the females at my mothers side has the similar gifts and dreams, so it not so unusual for them. They tried to make me believe God etc more but couldn't have any influence on me. I made my decisions, change my mind in time myself.

Have you shared this experience formally or informally with any other researcher or web site?   Yes

Nearly a year ago my disaster and war dreams became repeating so much and I decided to search about dreams. During my search I saw many web pages and I may have share it with some of them.

 Is there anything else you would like to add regarding your experience?       Will, it was unbelievable but unique.

Did you ever in your life have a near-death experience, out of body experience or other spiritual event?           Uncertain 

While I was 10 years old I had a hearth operation which they stopped my hearth and connected me to a machine during the operation for 6-7 hours. I am not sure if it can be counted as a near death experience. I don't remember any out of body experience, I am having a dream journal for only 10 months now. But I had many spiritual events. Some says I have a third eye.

Did the questions asked and information you provided accurately and comprehensively describe your experience?               Uncertain

I wish I had been writing down my dreams and experiences than. There maybe more details which I can't remember.
