Experience description:  

I was waking up but enjoying listening to the birds. At some point I was very aware of a presence.  I wasn't afraid in fact it felt very peaceful. I pretended I was asleep so I didn't lose the feeling. Out of the corner of my eye I sensed a mist in the corner of the room. I remember feeling very quickly it was my Dad. I wondered why he was here. He was talking to me and telling me he was ok , I will be ok that sort of thing. I was in a difficult time in my marriage and having second thoughts of leaving . He basically reassured me that that was the best decision.  It felt good to be close to him. I never had a relationship with my father after my parents split up and I felt how I felt around him when I was a young child. I remember feeling tingling in my hands and arms I had been learning to meditate so put it down to some sort of meditation.  

Later that day, I got a phone call from Grandmother who again I hadn't seen or had contact with for a long time. She told me , my father had died from a heart attack and that the funeral would be at the end of the week.
