my mother died, within a few days, she came to my house and sat in my rocking chair and looked and smiled at me as if to say goodbye. A day or so later, my husband was walking through the bedroom to the bathroom and he saw my mother standing there. He said oh hi mom. Then he suddenly realized she was no longer alive, he went into a panic and ran to tell me about it. I’ve been told that I make things happen from far away. I think about some subject and within a few days some happens in connection with it. People have noticed. They fear me a little.

I had always discussed with my grandfather him communicating with me past his grave. After he died, I was married and honeymooned in …. Our trip consisted of 1-2 nights in each of several wineries private visitors accomodations. No one knew our itinerary, or how to contact us. One night on return to our accomodation (a 2 BR home surrounded by acres of grape vines at …) around midnight, the phone was ringing as we walked in. “It’s for me!” I shouted, half kidding, because noone knew where we were, and if anyone had even tried to track us down, it was 3am on the east coast. I picked up the phone and the line was dead. As I hung up the receiver, my cell phone rang, the caller ID reading “out of area.” I answered, but there was no response, just a seemingly “dead” line, as well.

When I picked up the house phone again, there was a dial tone. Both my husband (he never met my grandfather and is a true skeptic) and I both KNEW that it was him. Shortly thereafter, we were visiting my parents, and the torch lamp beside the guest bed that had belonged to my grandfather came on spontaneously several times as we were trying to go to sleep. My husband, becoming weary of my grandfathers attempts at communication insisted that I thank him, and “let him move on.”

shortly after my grandmas death, she came to my bedside in a blue and white sparkly light, i smelt her perfume and felt her cold hands on my arm, she whispered in my ear to answer the phone. then she was gone. i was awake lying in bed when this happened, actually i was getting out of the bed. the blue and white sparkly light was like a flash, but lasted about 5 seconds. the phone was ringing when she left. i was too scared to answer the phone.

I had a dream that a loved one that I hadn’t seen or heard anything about in several years was standing at the foot of my bed and saying goodbye. I awoke, knowing that he died. Several days later we received a letter from his daughter saying that he passed away on the night I had the dream.

When I was about 17 years old I went to sleep one evening and dreamt that I was awake.

There was a woman in a casket laid out. There were people milling about in this parlor. I hovered over the casket to look in and realized that it was my grandmother. My father’s mother.

I had written to her since I was small but had never met her. I did have photographs of her. I also got the sense that she was going to leave me something valuable. I remember being filled with anguish and crying out to her over her casket that “this isn’t supposed to be how I meet you!!” I awoke the next morning feeling a bit creeped out by this dream because it was so detailed and so vivid.

I was planning to visit this grandmother for the first time in April that year. It was also going to be the time I met my father for the first time, as we had been physically separated since I was two years old from the divorce of my parents. A few weeks later I called my father to firm up the arrangements for my upcoming trip. He informed me that granny had died. I asked if I could go to the funeral and he told me that it was too late, that she had died a few weeks ago!

Her literal death coincided closely to when I had the dream. Perhaps days before. She left me $1,000 and her ring that she often wore.

In 1992, I was deeply romantically involved with a man who would later become my husband. After a passionate whirlwind courtship of about 4 months, he suddenly broke up with me. I was deeply depressed and really unable to understand what was going on. I lost a great deal of weight and had difficulty sleeping and concentrating on work and other tasks. One night, however, I had a dream in which a tall woman with dark hair pulled back in a “bun” style and wearing a 1940s-style dress with black and white polka dots appeared to me and said, “don’t worry, it will all be alright.”

A few days later, I bumped into the guy on the street, we went for a drink and talked things through. We got back together (he had been worried about problems with his ex-wife), subsequently married and have been together ever since. About a year after the dream, we were clearing things out of house in order to sell it and I was going through a box of old family photos. The woman from my dream was a photo in the box — a formal studio portrait in which she was wearing the dress and hairstyle I had seen! When I asked who it was, he said, “It’s my mother, .. . She died in 1987, but you would have liked her. She was a real character — thought she was psychic!” It really freaked me out, but I’ve grown to really like … and the stories I hear about her. The photo is framed and displayed in my dining room.

My earliest memory of the abilities given to me was around the age of 4. My grandfather shared his presence and very special messages with me while I was setting in my room in the middle of the day. My grandfather had moved on ‘my words for crossing over’ when I was 8 months old. I kept these abilities private until just a few years ago (2003). Today I share thoughts of life and life-afters gifts with thousands.
