Have you been visited by someone who's passed?

I had a dream about my mom a few weeks ago.  I am absolutely convinced it was not just a dream, but a visit.  

 

Mom got dementia in her early 80s.  Dementia is horrific and cruel.  My mom had been the most patient, compassionate woman all her life.  We were close, I could confide anything to her and not be judged. In dementia she was mean.  That was my last memory of her and it hurt. 

 

Anyway, she visited me in a dream and it was the real mom I'd known all my life.  I had such a feeling of complete joy, happiness and peace.  It's hard to explain but her eyes had love and happiness in them. I don't remember much of what we talked about.  I remember that feeling of being full to bursting with her love of me.  When I woke up, that feeling was still there.  Almost like a pure sensation of energy. That's my recollection. Anyone else have this happen?

I get very obvious evidence of my brother visiting every year, at the time of his tragic death.

Can't say that I have, but John Denver songs seem to bring me good luck.

@kalli  Also, not in a dream, but it was a vision in the distance....About 5 years ago I looked across my backyard and saw my late father holding my dog that had tragically died about a month previously.  I felt it was a sign that my dad was showing me that he caught up with my dog up there in heaven and they were together.  🐕⛅😇💞

Re: Have you been visited by someone who's passed?

My mom visits me periodically. She was always so full of grace and a gentle woman, but also an independent and very professional female in her own right. Her visits remind me of when I was a small child and she would check  on me during the night. She's still watching over me. It's a reassuring, loving feeling.

 Perhaps it's her way of saying, "Thank you" for the years of staying a step (or two) ahead of the dementia. She doesn't need to thank me. I felt priveleged to help her and loved every minute we ever spent together.

Our lives still have an emptiness following her death. She was an amazing mom, grandmother, greatmother and friend to so many. No one else has mentioned visits from her.
