202) Life Events and How They Work

I had an interesting dream this morning that clarified to me how the many life events we go through over the years create the individual we are now.  Like many others, I sometimes wish that I knew ahead of time how events would turn out, but this dream made me realize that this information may not be as helpful as we think it would be.  Goals we set and our ambition to achieve them may change depending on our behaviors during the critical 'event' we are currently going through. 

In this dream, I was happily watching a movie about an older man being a mentor to a young male. I do not recall the specific details in the movie, but watched as they together endured various significant 'life events' to create the best life for the young male, ultimately being a famous basketball star, his lifelong dream.  

At the end of the show, the same 'movie' started again, but this time as I watched I recalled how it was an exact repeat and that I'd now know the ending.  However, in the middle of the movie, one difference was that the young male now picked up an advertisement in the shape of an index card that showed his life events and the ultimate outcome, showing he achieved his dream goal! 

He understood he currently was going through one of the major 'life events' shown on the card.  The last and final event was to be that he would obtain a 'basketball scholarship' which ultimately leads him to his life's goal.  He showed the mentor this "advertisement card" with the life events and felt he now could stop working toward this goal so diligently since the outcome was known!  However, instead of motivating him to work harder, he changed his behaviors and stopped pursuing his dream, as he felt it was a 'done deal' .  I knew because of this knowledge that the ending of this movie was now going to be different. 

I awoke with such clarity as to how this all works and why we have to learn to be the best we can be without exactly knowing how the 'movie' will end.  We DO need to keep focused on the end goal, knowing it will come, but always looking for the steps the Universe will put in our path to obtain them, even if it's another 'life event' we must get through.

201) Flying Once Again!

Excited to offer another post about my reconnection to my astral travel and dreamwalking! As you may have read in my posts, I was a prolific dream traveler with out of body experiences in the past, but took a break when my life changed so much (for the better) and I felt I needed to focus on THIS physical life experience so I would have that many more memories to take with me when I go.    

With another turn of events and a reopening to my energies to this astral travel, I am finding so many synchronicities in my daily life that support this effort to reconnect.  Last night was a reawakening experience, and one that solidified my resolution to continue to do more. 


As usual, I naturally awoke after 4-5 hours of sleep and tossed and turned for a bit.  Mentally asking the Universe for some help in reconnecting, I focused on channeling energy as I used to do with affirmations, as taught by William Buhlman in his informative books on out of body travel.


When you are starting to reconnect (or learning for the first time) how to astral travel and get out of body, the hardest part (for me, at least!) is to recognize WHEN you are dreaming! That is called becoming 'lucid' within a dream. I was able to do this last night, which makes me thrilled to know I’m again learning how!


For some background, I’ve been intently reading the various books by Dolores Cannon, which I feel may have helped stimulate this ‘wake up’ within a dream as she speaks much of extraterrestrials and their impact in helping us on planet Earth. 


I remember walking along the driveway of my former childhood home and looking up to see this oblong silver disc flying above me! I knew immediately it was a UFO/extraterrestrial ship and at the same time, mentally said ‘Hi! Hello!’  (I also felt I was alone and wished my husband was here with me as he has a particular interest in seeing one!)


I am a little amazed I felt no fear when I first saw it, but then when it slowed and stopped just a short way ahead of me and above me, I may have felt some ‘concern’ and that’s why it again took off in front of me. 


I watched it almost disappear, but then realized it was returning!  I started to run toward it!  While running, I became aware I was more flying than running and THAT triggered my awareness to know I was out of body! (I feel that ship was intentionally doing this for me!)


Once flying I felt SO free and happy and couldn’t stop mentally saying ‘Thank you! Thank you!’ over and over.  I was just SO happy to be consciously out of body once again! 


I mentally asked to anyone who could hear me, ‘How can I help you? or others?’ as a way of expressing my thanks and that’s when this ‘vision’ opened up before me.   There were cartoon-like characters happily talking, as if in a commercial.  They were saying “Welcome to CVQ! We’re so happy you’re here!”, as if it was an ad for some customer service.  (I also felt the CVQ was a play on words for the retail store CVS that is found all over the US)


It was warm, happy, and inviting place with these characters, but it didn’t last long as I could feel the ‘pull back’ to body happening.  Once that starts, it’s important that I ‘tag’ the key memories so I can remember more detail as I write/record them immediately upon full waking. 


It’s just amazing to know that it’s true what they say...Action follows thought! This is a thought-responsive dimension we live in, and we are all our own creators. What you focus on IS what you receive!

200) It's Time to Begin Again

So it's been a while since I've blogged any experiences here, but with some big changes in my life and lots of 'nudges' from the Universe, I'm jumping back into my 'otherworldly' experiences with astral travel and out of body experiences.  Thanks to Jaime's encouragement, I'm going to write a chapter in an upcoming book called, "Divine Dreamers - Wisdom and Guidance on Unlocking Your Soul Essence Through Lucid Dreaming & Astral Projection."  I will be sharing some of my techniques and ongoing learning in this book that will be available later this year. 

As I work on this chapter and get these 'nudges' from the Universe, I wanted to share with you a video that happened recently with our Ring motion detector.  When you watch the video, be sure to turn up the volume, as there is definitely a sound that is accompanying this orb! The way it moved, the sound that you hear, and toward the very end, a flash of light all indicates to me an otherworldly visitor stopping by. (Flashes of light frequently accompany inter-dimensional travel)  I was just inside the room at the bottom of the video when this happened.  This is the link to the video on YouTube: Otherworldly Visitor?

It's really interesting how once you make the intention of doing something, the Universe always transpires to make it happen! Thank you Jaime for being my kickstart!

A Few Tips for OBEs/Astral Projection

Thought I'd share this information from my mentor, William Buhlman.   Highly recommend all books and programs he has to help you develop your own experiences!  Visit his site at for more information.

A Few Tips for OBEs/Astral Projection


• Develop your personal method for deep relaxation – Mind awake, body asleep. 


• Remain calm and detached during all shifts of energy, vibrations or sounds. Never focus on your body or it's sensations! 


• Focus on your intention during all shifts of consciousness – OBE NOW!


• Surrender without attachment to all inner energy manifestations, including the vibrational state – don’t analyze the energy shifts or inner sounds. You can journal all your thoughts after the experience.


• Effective Mindset is important - Self-examination and removal of personal fear-based beliefs. 


• Keep a written journal – Even minor shifts of inner energy can be a sign of progress.


• Inner Energy Work – Immediately before your OBE technique do the deep relaxation/preparation method that has worked for you in the past. For example, breathe work, chakra opening and or clearing, meditation, self-hypnotic countdowns, opening of energy centers - pulsing inner energy head to toe.


• Exit protocol – Focus away from your body. Use a brief powerful exit command - "Roll Now!, Door Now!" Keep it simple and repeatable. Make it an automatic positive response to all separation/vibrational opportunities. Visualize you are moving ten feet away from your body.


• Do a daily OBE method in your designated meditation area. Have fun with the entire process!

199) Bombing Raid

I became aware that I was ‘awake but asleep’ and knew I could get out of body!  I could hear what sounded like a ‘game show’ on the TV, which I knew was not possible as it was nighttime. As soon as I thought that the vibrations started and I just ‘rolled out’ off the bed.  Standing in the bedroom I immediately headed to the door and down the stairs as I knew I needed to get away from my body for the best clarity. 

As I’m heading down the stairs, I remember to say, “Awareness now!” and “Clarity Now!” a few times (thanks to William Buhlman’s books!) Each time, my vision cleared, and I became clearer in thought. 


As I hit the bottom stair, I remember feeling a bit ‘wobbly’, similar to my initial OOB’s and knew I just needed to ‘steady’ myself with intentions.  I’ve not made it a habit to get OOB often anymore, so I’m sure my lack of stability was due to my loss of routine experience navigating this thought=action domain! 


I could see the room downstairs was much messier than I’d ever leave it, with clothing strewn around and boxes. But again, having experienced this all before, knowing everything looks different when OOB, I just shrugged and kept going. 


Once steady, I wondered what and where I should go.  Remembering it’s best to learn as much as possible with these experiences, I just intended “take me to where I need to learn!”


Immediately I was moving upwards at great speed, and for whatever reason, felt I needed to have my hands together and raised to get there!  Somehow, I can remember I didn’t need to do that, but it just felt right!


Now I hear airplanes, zooming and screaming all around, as if in a war zone with bombing.  I feel I am in the plane and put my arms out to my side as if I’m flying! What I hear next is a young girls voice, saying in fear, “Johnnie doesn’t like this!”  I felt as though I was now in a bombing raid and had to take cover, so I dove over a mounded area that was nearby to seek shelter.  I had allowed fear to enter and at that point, the OBE faded back to full wakefulness.  


I have not figured out what I needed to learn from this experience, but yet, am still thrilled to know how wonderful it is be able to get OOB once in a while! Maybe I need to get back to intending to do this more often for more clarity!

198) Helping Another to Move On

It's again been a long time since I put any experiences here on my blog, as I do not exclusively focus on having them - but once in a while, something will occur that I feel is important to share.

Last night, I became aware I was in that 'in-between' state where I'm conscious of being in bed at night, yet within a dream state.  I felt I was in a location where I've not been before, lying in a bed in an old 'cabin' type bedroom and fully aware that someone was in the room with me.  I could not clearly see who it was, but my senses indicated it was an elderly male. 

I felt him moving on my left side moving toward me on the bed where I was 'sleeping'.  What I didn't expect was to have him turn and SIT DOWN on top of me! I was so taken aback to 'feel' the full weight of his 'body' sitting on my chest!

I immediately pushed back hard to alleviate the pressure, and he was just as surprised to feel the resistance! He turned to face me, I sensed (not heard) he indicated he didn't know what to do, where to go! I don't know how I knew, but all I 'told' him was that he needed to go 'to the light'! At the far end of the bed, a faint glimmer of light was shining and he immediately moved toward it.  

It all happened very quickly, and ended just as fast.  It's been a long time since I've had such contact with 'lost souls' and I'm only hoping that I was able to help him move on to the next life. 

I truly believe that some 'souls' transition too quickly to adjust, or have such firm beliefs of no afterlife, that after their death, they remain close to the 'human' experience in a place that is 'between' worlds.  Time is 'no-thing' to them so they are fixated to stay where they have always been until someone or something is able to break through to them.

I'm happy to know that I can still help when it's needed, and maybe I should think about trying to get back to doing more of this 'otherworldly' travel in the future again!

Unprecedented Times

So, it's been a loooooooooong time since I've posted here and thought this might be a good time to share some thoughts regarding these unprecedented times we are now experiencing.  With the coronavirus rampant throughout our countries, people are now experiencing a 'shutdown' of what normal life has been to date.

Businesses are closed, schools are closed, the health of our citizens are in jeopardy with every personal contact, and life is no longer the life we remember.  Despite the seemingly negative aspects of this economic closure, we have to focus on the positive attributes that this change will bring.  Things we normally took for granted will now be appreciated as a special treat.  Going out for dinner, sharing fun times with friends, just getting groceries from a well-stocked store is to be thankful for.  There is more time for introspection and reflection, time to read books and share experiences with close family that we never had before.

Let's use this time to meditate more, going within to seek the Higher Self and connect with your guides and angels.  They are always there to help up through this spiritual uplifting that is happening. As humans experiencing ascension on this planet, we need to have a more spiritual aspect to our daily lives that go along with all the technology and external devices we already have.  I believe this is part of why we need to go through this pandemic. Take the time you have now to go within!

Share your experiences with others, take care of your neighbor, give more of yourself to the community, and then you can be more connected to the spiritual aspect of these changing times.

You will find you are directed to where you need to be if you just ask for help and expect the answers to appear. Do not try to figure HOW it will happen, just KNOW it will and focus on the end result.  It's just amazing that this is available for everyone, no matter who you are, and you WILL find your path.  Action follows thought...EXPECT THE BEST...and you WILL receive it!

197) Sending Love Again

2016.09.16          197) Sending Love Again

So, once again, I realize it’s been forever since I’ve posted any travels, mainly because I do not ‘focus’ on remembering them in detail as I used to.  However, once in a while, I do have an out-of-body experience that I feel could be shared as a learning experience.

The last one a few weeks ago, I remember waking up to a light stage of sleep feeling like I could float.  This memory of floating was enough to make me consciously realized I could change it to an out-of-body experience!  Stating loudly (within my head) “out of body now!” I roll off the bed and find myself standing.  I take off flying, moving to the window and out!  I was so enjoying the flying sensation again when I then realized I had moved into another house.

Instead of flying and floating, I now find a very ‘heavy’ sensation all around me, so heavy I could barely move!  I tried lifting my arms (to assume the Superman pose) thinking that could help me fly again, but to no avail.  Desperate to get moving, and since I couldn’t go up, I put my arms at my side and say, “Down, down down”!

I’m thrilled to be moving again, floating down, down down until I now realize I’m not alone.  There is someone with me, so I ask, “who’s there?” and hear a woman call my name. It was a very familiar voice, so I was not afraid or concerned.

Now I hear two people talking, and I’m trying to determine who they are when one of them moves directly in front of me.  She was so close I could almost ‘physically’ feel her presence.  She said clearly to me, “I want to take to you a fabulous place, the best place ever!” and she tries to hug me.  I ask again, ‘who are you?’ with no answer and at the same time getting a very uncomfortable sensation, fearing for my safety.

I’m thrilled to say that I immediately remembered that whenever I question my safety, I need to “send love” to whatever is causing my concern, and immediately upon doing so, this person dissipates!!  I’m not sure what happened and I fully woke up right after this.

In hindsight, the downward movement could have been moving toward a lower ‘level’ of entities and hearing my name with a familiar voice initially gave me the ability to know I was supposed to be there.  When the ‘uncomfortable’ closeness of another person was encountered, I would like to think that the ‘send love’ energy I gave her was enough to lift her to a better place.  At the very least, it negated any malintent that was intended for me.  Of course, this is all my own interpretation of this meeting, however, as I always tell everyone, there is no one better than the one experiencing it to do the interpretation according to your own perceptions!

196) Triggers to Lucidity and Helping Rafael


I had another short experience last night that I wish to share, as it shows that there are souls who are in need of ‘conscious dreamers’ to help them realize a change is needed.

One of the key points I try to use when getting out of body during a dream is the ability to realize that something ‘isn’t right’ or very unusual, which will make me stop and question my physical status.  These triggers to lucidity generally take the form of unusual events or dangerous situations I find myself in.  When that happens, I stop and assess my ‘physical’ status.  If there is ANY question at all whether I’m awake or dreaming, then I know I’m dreaming! (Because when you are fully awake, there is NO DOUBT that you are!)

This experience started with me back in my prior hometown walking down the road and finding an entire freeway built above the country road I was on.  I realized this had to have been built overnight, and puzzled as to how this could be possible! Still, I did not question my status (as I should have) at this time and continued on with my ‘dream’ life.  Walking into a home I am familiar with on that road, I was again surprised to find myself sitting on loose gravel, near the edge of a very deeply dug hole that was in the basement of this house. 

Usually a dangerous situation is a strong indicator that I am dreaming, but once again, I did not heed the situation and assess my status and kept moving on, climbing to safety, wondering why there were stone tunnels under this house, and then entering into a room upstairs in the home.

Again, I can remember ‘physically’ feeling the eye mask I was (actually) using to sleep STILL on my face while I’m in the dream, another key point that should have made me more conscious of my dreaming status.  I dropped something, made a loud noise, and heard from another room the homeowner asking ‘who’s there?’ 

Initially I was concerned, but then answered, ‘No worries, it’s just me” and moved out of the house.  It was on the steps as I was leaving that finally the unusual situations I was just in made me conscious of my dreaming status, and I knew I could get out of body!

I jumped high to confirm my status, and was thrilled to once again find myself flying and zooming over the countryside.  I can remember thinking how crystal clear my thought processes were now, being totally conscious of all that I was doing!

I just wish I could explain the elation and joy one feels when totally free of the body and physical density.  I asked to ‘go where I needed to be’ (as I always prefer to have the Universe decide my best travels)

I found myself watching in horror the collision of two large trucks from high above, as semi-trailer and a gasoline/oil truck at an intersection.  The oil truck completely T-boned the semi-truck and there was chaos and confusion all around.  

I watched as the driver of the oil truck got out and attempted to put out some flames with an extinguisher – and yet I knew it was all in vain. 

My next memory is of meeting this truck driver as he stood in front of me, looking very confused. I asked him his name, and clearly I heard, “Rafael”.   I remember talking with him at length and at one point saying ‘I’d like to get to know you better’.

He became anxious, stating ‘no, no – you can’t ‘ and the knowing I felt (as much as not in words but feelings) was that he had a bad experience with another woman who he allowed to ‘know him better’. 

I eventually realized that he was living his last moments over and over again, confused and afraid, unaware that he had passed over to spirit during this truck accident.  As an out-of-body traveler, I knew that I was ‘visible’ to him because of his continued ‘perception’ of being alive and connected with the denser physical realm.  He was unable to see those around him of a higher vibration who were trying to help, and I can remember asking him to ‘look around’ and see those with him, which he couldn’t.

After a long talk (of which I have little recall for the specifics), I only remember asking him the general question, ‘Well, do you think it’s possible that someone could be dead (passed over) and not realize it?”   He stopped and thought for a long time and finally said, ‘well, yes…I guess it can be possible” at which point there was a very bright light and what felt to be an ‘ending’ of a movie.  He faded out and I found myself back into the dream life I had just come from. 

I was in this half-conscious dream life for a while before I realized consciously that I had to waken and get Rafael’s experience recorded.  Already I had forgotten much of the experience but recorded what I could recall. 

It is so difficult at times to pull enough conscious awareness into your dreams, even with triggers, hence this fragmented experience.  However, the idea that you can be of service  with your astral travels is what’s important to know from this experience. 

Although I will never truly know what became of Rafael, I do know that because I helped him to open up his perspective to another possibility for what he was experiencing, that he could now ‘see’ his spiritual helpers. I sent him love and peace, knowing he was now in good hands.

195) OOB in My New Home – Facing Fear


I woke at 4am after a deep sleep in my new home many miles from where I used to live.  Wondering if I’d still be able to get OOB (since I hadn’t consciously tried in many weeks), I put forth the intention to travel ‘to where I need to learn” with the affirmations “out of body NOW!’ and “my mind remains aware as my body falls asleep”.  Both of these affirmations are my favorite to use, repeated over and over as I get drowsy.

Immediately I am aware of a floating sensation and get excited to think I can still get out!  I roll back and forth and with a defiant ‘umph’ I roll off the bed and find myself standing!

Thrilled to be OOB once again, I remembered approximately where the door was in my new room, and affirmed ‘to the door!’ moving in that general direction, knowing if I wasn’t accurate, I’d just pass through the wall.

What I was shocked to find, was the sensation of hitting a wall…hard! I can still remember the sensation of feeling the wall next to my face and body!  I couldn’t get out!!

Immediately I affirmed, “take me to where I need to learn!” so that there could be some movement and direction to my experience.

I found myself floating back to my bed! However, the scene quickly changed and I was aware of a commotion in an adjoining room. There seemed to be some sort of shooting or disturbance in that area where people were running away from this man. 

I immediately felt a sense of fear, worried that I would be harmed and quickly rolled off the bed to the side to hide. However, I was unable to ‘sink’ low enough to avoid being noticed. 

I knew this man saw me, and I was in his sights.  That is when I realized what I needed to learn with this experience.  There can be NO fear, and facing fear with the complete knowing that you cannot be harmed while OOB is a key factor that I needed to remember.

As soon as I faced him, sent love his direction I felt peace.  I also immediately woke up with a sense of concern for these other people, but thrilled to know I was still able to get out of body and face my fears.

Sadly, I was shocked to hear on the news this morning that there was a shooting massacre in a church in my city last night.  I do not know if this experience was in some way related or not, but my thoughts and prayers for peace go out to all those affected by this tragedy.

194) A Gift of Love

I want to share a wonderful (unexpected!) experience I had this morning.  As most of you know, I do not actively seek OOB experiences on a regular basis anymore due to a need to focus on physical life ‘memories’ and experiences with the time I have left.

However, I have learned SO much with my prior astral travels. The most valuable knowledge I have gained is a deep-rooted ‘knowing’ that life DOES go on after one passes to the other side.  This physical existence we are all in now is not our ‘natural’ state, but a time spent separated from our ‘spiritual’ side in order to gain new understandings and experiences. 

Part of what we are learning here is how our ‘inner guidance’ is the best compass for what we experience during our lives.  Traveling in the astral teaches you that what you ‘think’, you experience, but on a more immediate basis.  Same holds true in physical life but on a slower pace….what you put forth, will return to you.  Expect the best, and you WILL get it!

The other two important points I have learned with my OBE travels is 1) if you feel vibrations, go with it! And 2) always ‘let go’ when you don’t feel in control, never fear, have faith, and trust in the Higher Self to take you where you need to go!

All of these lessons I have learned led to me a wonderful reunion with my father who passed just over a year ago.  I did not actively seek a connection with him after he passed over, somehow knowing that when the time was right (for him and me), that we would see each other again.

I awoke early this morning and was settling back into sleep.  I did not feel like I was close to falling asleep when I started feeling my usual vibrations, gently but persistent.  I could hear all sorts of ‘noises’ in the room – cars passing my house, the furnace humming – so did not think I was deep enough to take advantage of the vibrations.

But as I mentioned, you don’t make decisions based on what you ‘hear’ when getting OOB, many times it is a false awakening sensation.  I took advantage of even gentle vibrations and willed them to become stronger.

After a short time, they were stronger and I could feel a gentle ‘sway’ of my body, signaling it was time to ‘roll out’!  I rolled off the bed, ecstatic to see I was OOB again!  The window to outdoors was right next to me, so I took a big leap right through the window, knowing I couldn’t stay close to my body for too long. (I will admit, because I hadn’t been OOB in a while, there was a very slight concern that I was going to physically hit the window! – but that is where you push on, knowing that fear will stop any further exploration)

Immediately through the window, I could see the outdoors as it appears in real life, and flew to my right around the corner of the house and up to the treetops nearby.  I remember thinking, “Wow! I forgot how much FUN this is to fly!”  (Now thinking I need to continue to get OOB just a wee bit more often!)

Almost as soon as I said that, I felt I was losing control.  I couldn’t ‘zoom’ and move as I wished, feeling a sensation that something was pulling me backward.  Again, I learned you must just ‘let go’ and see what happens, without overanalyzing any experience while OOB.

I was pulled backward, enjoying the passing scenery in this backward facing position. As I moved skyward, I remembered that I had no plan for where I wanted to go and perhaps this was why I wasn’t in control. However, at that point was when I heard Dad’s voice – clearly and distinctly – saying (of all things!), “Ho Ho Ho”!!

Immediately, I said, “Dad! Are you here? I’d like to see you!” and with that thought I was gently placed on the front lawn of my house, but oddly during a beautiful snowfall with snow all around.  I didn’t think twice about the weather, as I again heard his voice saying “Ho Ho Ho!” and with the snow, thinking of Christmas. 

Then I saw him walking toward me from the trees by my house (from the direction of his own home next door). He was wearing his usual winter coat (that I remember him working outdoors in during the winter) and with a HUGE smirky smile that was his classic look! 

The emotions flowed as I moved to him and hugged him tight! I don’t remember exact ‘words’ but the sense of deep love and a need to let my Mom know that he was alright was conveyed to me.  I was SO happy to see him!

The entire experience didn’t last long, and as I hugged him I could feel the loss of connection as I pulled back to full wakefulness. The lingering sense of love and happiness enveloped me as I lay there crying out of sheer joy, giving thanks to the Universe for giving me this opportunity to connect with Dad once again.

In hindsight, the whole ‘ho ho ho’ and Christmas theme was perfect…I was receiving a ‘gift’ of love and reconnection, and a reinforcement that life truly goes on and we will see all of our loved ones again when the time is right!


I went to my mother's house this same morning to let her know of my experience and was SHOCKED to hear her response!  My mom doesn't truly understand what I 'do' when I say I travel, so I have to describe it as a 'dream' and she can relate.

After telling her of my wonderful reunion with Dad, she told me that she also had a dream with Dad just last night!  For some background information, there is a great true story that my Mom and Dad share about how he 'saved her' from being utterly lost one time when visiting him in NYC when they were both teenagers.  Had my father not seen her get off the train at the station and watch her walk in what he knew to be the wrong direction, who knows where she would have ended up!  She has had a fear of getting 'lost' ever since!

So, in this dream Mom had, she remembers skipping along a dirt road, barefoot, and staying a short distance ahead of whomever she was with.  She knew this road, and was familiar that it would end with an option to go right or left, but she was confident she knew where to go when she to to the end.

When she got to the T in the road, she was surprised to find a large building there.  Entering it and walking around,  it felt oddly unfamiliar and uncomfortable ("cold" "church-like" she described it as) so she left the building as quickly as possible.  Upon exiting, she found herself afraid, in unfamiliar territory, unsure of where to turn, and fear began to set in.

Suddenly, out of nowhere, she said she felt loving arms around her from behind, and a quick nuzzling on her neck. Shocked at this sensation, she turned her head to look directly into my father's smiling face!  She was so surprised to see him, yet thrilled! In a blink of an eye, he was gone....and she reluctantly woke up.  She told me she tried in vain to get back to sleep as she wanted to see him again.

She wasn't going to tell anyone about this quick experience, thinking it 'just a dream', however after hearing my encounter with Dad during this same night, she is thrilled to know that he was able to get through to both of us!  To me, this is true validation....Dad is doing just fine, and letting us know all is well!
