Is It Just a Dream...Or Something More?

Can deceased loved ones contact us through dreams?

I'm back! As a follow-up to my last blog "Proof of Life After Death" which explored the possibility of psychic mediums communicating with those who have crossed over... 

There are more ways besides mediums that your deceased loved ones can personally communicate with you..to let you know they are well and watching over you. I would like to share with you one...of many signs...that have proved to me that my deceased loved ones still live on. This story is about my beloved Grandmother or as I called her - Nana.

About 10 years ago I was trying to have a 2nd child...my first came easy but the 2nd proved to be difficult. I happened to be staying at my mom's overnight (where Nana had lived the last few years of her life) and before I went to bed asked Nana to pray for me to have another baby.

That night, THE DREAM happened ..I was asleep but still knew as it was happening that it was TOO REAL to be just a dream... my Nana came to me. The dream was as real to me as you reading this right now.  I was crying, so happy to see my Nana and hugged her and asked her if she was OK ..."Good," was her response..."I can't stay long," she said "but want to tell you that you are going to have another baby!" I responded that I knew I was asleep and could she offer me any PROOF that she was really there talking to me. She said, "Remember the slippers. You'll know it's me because of the slippers. Remember the slippers." 

When I woke the next morning the "dream" I had the previous night was as clear as day. I remembered her "slippers" message but in the wake of day...slippers.. had NO meaning for me. None. That is, until I finally asked my Mom (without giving her any details about my dream) ... "Mom, this is gonna sound crazy but is there anything special you would think of associated with Nana and slippers?"

She immediately said "Yes, I was reading an article in a magazine a few days ago about a daughter who was taking care of her elderly dying mother (as my Mom had taken care of my Nana) and how her dying Mom's slippers (and the loss of one of them which paralleled her loss of independence) were a major point of the article." My Mom then told me that the article moved her so much because it reminded her of my Nana that she saved the article for me to read. The title of the article..."The Gray Slippers." 

Welcome, baby Ryan 3-2-04!

Thank you Nana, for being there for me... always.

Shems, thanks for the post. It matters not what is easier, it is (I feel I keep saying this) what the evidence shows. After watching Dr Taylor's video I saw nothing in her video that suggested an after life, rather just a 'right brain' run amok, a nirvana in the Buddhist sense, something that can be achieved through meditation. I actually find knowing that this is the only life I have gives life more meaning, intensity and just bloody marvel and while I do not look forward to death, I do not fear it. When you actually look at the possibility of one being born. you release the improbability of it, yet at the moment of the 'big bang' the motion was put in place for my existence,,,, Mind Blowing!......... So no, I am not greedy, just having the chance to be part of the universe for a fraction of time is enough for me and the notion of a god or an after-life, cheapens it and the memories and struggle of my ancestors.

I would have to disagree with you in saying that Robin is an optimist. I could be optimistic that Elvis is alive is, yet in reality that is delusional. Being optimistic about unrealistic things is not a virtue. Robin is a victim suffering from Stockholm syndrome and Edwards the predator, she can not disgusting between imagination and reality. And as a victim myself, I find that unacceptable which is why I post here. I have said repeatedly I am open to evidence, not to untested notions, so no. Robin is not likely to find any 'winning' letter because she is blinded. Coaches instill the "will to win" because it is possible, they do not instill the notion that Elvis is alive because it is not, If there is evidence for the paranormal then let the evidence show it, otherwise you are 'blowing in the wind'. And certainly I have dreams, realistic ones, but they must be governed by reality as I recently found out when my wife was diagnosed with cancer. I would describe my life as very happy and full of hope and also one devoid of hate, malice and jealousy, I am just happy to be alive and happy to be me and I only wish the same for everyone, including Robin.

My experiences on the boat was a delusional one, a trick of the mind that served a purpose, just as I might suggest are NDE, a dying brain trying to deal with reality. Again you mention hope. Realistic hope is achievable. My daughter hopes to go to a particular college, so in order to realize her hopes she has become more focused. Now if she hope to go to Harvard I would call that unrealistic and guide her accordingly. I do not think Robin's experiences are unique, I have had not dissimilar experiences, but they have to be weighed by reality and actual evidence. The notion of a gift is nonsense, we are all just evolved animals with almost identical DNA to suggest a 'gift' is to ignore the evidence of human anatomy. I think I covered everything, take care,

Issy, oddly enough I agree with almost everything you said. Your opinion of J.Taylor's video echoed impressions I had. We do diverge on a couple of of fundamental concepts, but it seems much of our disagreements stem from different definitions of some words. From my perspective, it seems that if there are 4 definitions applicable to a word, you select one and that's it; whereas I tend to allow for all of them - again, just my perspective. You say you are happy; in a way I envy that, I have seen happiness come and go in my life. I seek to make sense of experiences I have had, to gain understanding. Regular, real world answers seem to have to be forced to fit . Somewhere in the Bible I believe it says "seek and you will find"; I guess that means if you don't seek you won't find. Wondering here - the odds of winning the powerball are astronomical, yet people do win. Do you believe it is realistic to hope to win? Hope you continue to find happiness. Thanks for your replies.

Issy, thanx for the sentiment. Truth is I am happy .... now that I have escaped the insane asylum : ). Just referring to a comment Sherms made on my "Proof of Life After Death" blog. 'Cause as you know, I can never resist the joke....even when it's on me : ). Thank you so much for participating in both my blogs. I appreciate it , and you. Peace...and of course, happiness.
