Zeina R's ADC
First time, it was a couple of days after my dad had passed. I was trying to make contact with him and kept saying: "Please let me know that you're ok...that there is something after life, that you can hear me etc...".
He came to me in the dream saying (I heard him but did not see him): "It's so quiet here...I'm bored....there is nothing, it is very quiet". Then I asked him if he saw all the people who showed up to his funeral (they were so many- he was so loved!) and he asked "No I didn't, who?" and I said "almost the whole country!" and that was it.
The second dream was few months later. I saw him in the hall of a building and was extremely happy to see him. I ran to him and hugged him and told him how much I missed him. He said he missed me too. He looked happy, healthy and fit, in his mid fifties (he died at the age of 71). He told me that women were crazy about his thighs (he was a very funny man and loved women!) and he was in a rush to go. I said: "please stay a little longer, I miss you so much, I want to spend more time with you" and he said: "I have to go, you go back where you belong with your husband and children". Then I woke up almost out of breath!
I felt that I had seen
him and that we communicated, but I really don't know if it was an ADC or just a
dream. Most of the people do not believe that dreams are ADC...so I really don't
know. I just hope it was.
