Suzanne M ADCs
Before I see Spirit, with my eyes closed, I see magnificent colors swirling
around, and eyes, large eyes of several beings - I believe they are my spirit
guides. But the colors are so
glorious, I often have tears roll down my cheeks.
Then I sense that I'm not alone, I ask 'Who is here?'
I hear Spirit speak - if they had an accent, they still do, then I see
what they looked like when they were on this side.
They show me their occupation, and give me a name.
Date of experience: several months ago
Length of time between death of deceased and your experience: 6-8 months
Was the date of the experience significant in any way? Bob has shown up for his wife, Mary, multiple times now. Mary confirms/verifies the information that Bob shows me. Mary has been my patient for several years. I never met Bob until after his death - and now I feel as if I know him very well! He has quite the sense of humor.
General geographic location of experience: Senoia, GA (The irony of this location is that it is where hit TV show 'The Walking Dead' is filmed! God has a sense of humor : )
Details of location of experience and your activity at the time of experience: I was in a therapy session with this patient - my patient was sobbing - and Bob popped in on my right side (Spirit always shows up on my right side, I don't know why) and Bob told me to remind Mary: 'Tell her about the green car... the green car!' I asked if she knew anything about the green car. She immediately smiled. Mary said, 'OMG! It was a 1970's muscle car - he loved that thing and I hated it!' Bob said, 'Remind her that car is where we conceived our first child... chuckle' I told Mary what Bob said, and she responded, 'Oh probably, we used to have sex in that thing all of the time!'
Degree of bereavement for deceased immediately prior to the experience: Severe sadness and/or grief feelings
Degree of alertness immediately prior to experience: Fully alert
After your experience, did you consider the contents of your experience: Wonderful
Have you had multiple experiences? Yes Was this experience difficult to express in words? Yes
Our language is primal and grossly inadequate to describe things I'm shown
Did you ONLY sense an awareness of presence of the deceased without actually seeing, hearing, feeling or smelling them? No
Did you hear the deceased or hear something associated with the deceased? Yes
Describe what you heard, how clearly you heard it and what was communicated: In one instance, I heard a woman with a heavy accent - and she was so stubborn! She told me she would wait until I delivered the message to her grandson - who was giving me a massage.
Did the voice or sound seem to originate externally or outside of you, inside you, or did you not hear a voice or sound, but had a sense of knowing what was communicated? The voice is inside of my head. As if I have in ear buds and I'm listening to a movie.
If you heard a voice or sound, was it similar or dissimilar from the voice or sound the deceased made when they were alive? The voice has never sound like mine. Typically, I don't know the deceased.
Is there any possibility what you heard was from any other source present in the surroundings at the time of your experience? NOPE!
Was there any possible impairment to your hearing at the time of the experience? NOPE! HAHAHAHA. It wouldn't matter if I were hearing impaired - Spirit communicates telepathically.
Did you feel a touch or experience any physical contact from the deceased? Yes
Was the touch familiar or unfamiliar? No, I allowed Spirit to use my body so that I could understand how they died. I've felt heart attacks, drug overdoses, traumatic brain injury, and a fatal car crash.
Was anything communicated by the touch? Just so that I could effectively share with their loved one.
Is there any possibility what you felt was from any other source present in the surroundings at the time of your experience? No
Did you see the deceased? Yes
They appear as they were so their loved one will recognize them
How clearly did the deceased appear? I've never seen them with my eyes open. But they show me in picture, sort of like a slide show... and if I don't get it the first time... they very patiently and lovingly repeat it until I understand.
How much of the deceased did you see? I see (with eyes closed) all of them.
Did the deceased appear or not appear to be the age at which they died? They appear to me exactly how their loved one would best recognize them.
How healthy did the deceased appear to be? Wonderfully healthy. They only show me limps, or amputation, if it's evidence for their loved one
Is there any possibility what you saw was from any other source present in the surroundings at the time of your experience? NOPE
Did you smell a distinct smell, scent, fragrance or odor associated with the deceased? Yes
What smell, scent, fragrance or odor did you smell? Cherry pipe tobacco - filled me office (17'x17') and I literally thought someone was smoking in it.
Was the smell, scent, fragrance or odor familiar? Not to me - but it was important for my patient.
Was anything communicated by the smell? The smell was to announce a husband's presence
Is there any possibility that the smell, scent, fragrance or odor was from any other source present in the surroundings at the time of your experience? HAHAHA - not in this historical home - it's a tinderbox. NO Smoking!

Was the beginning and end of the experience gradual or more sudden? The beginning was sudden and strong... then it disapated

So glad I knew they were there

Please explain why you view the reality of your experience as real or not real: Because the Spirit(s) provide me with specific evidence that I would have no way of knowing
Was the experience dream like in any way? No
Describe in detail your feelings/emotions during the experience: During the experience, I am trying to focus on what Spirit is trying to tell or show me. It's like your trying to hear someone when there is a bad cell phone connection

It helps grieving hearts
What was the best and worst part of your experience? The best part is interfacing with the Divine. The worst part is not being believed
Has your life changed specifically as a result of your experience? Yes Describe: My friends politely listen to my stories - but they don't know what to say or do around this topic.
Did you have any changes of attitudes or beliefs following the experience? Yes Every life is sacred. We must be personally responsible to help move the collective to higher levels of consciousness - this is achieved through LOVE and being love in the world, being the light in the darkness.
Did the experience give you any spiritual understandings such as life, death, afterlife, God, etc.? Yes We NEVER DIE.
Death Compacts are when two or more living people promise among themselves that whoever dies first will try to contact the other(s). Have you ever made such a compact? Yes
