It's been a year

Last night I had a strange dream. Not that that is news worthy, I have strange dreams all the time, but this one was different. It was about my Grandmother. She visited me. I didn't recognize her face, she looked different, but I knew her. My spirit knew her. My chest felt heavy, it was a weird sensation, perhaps skeptics might chalk it up to heart burn or something, but I think it was our physical connection. I believe when we sleep we are a lot more open to messages from the other side, the veil is that much thinner. I know this sounds like "new age" weird stuff, but seriously. My life is so noisy, when else would I hear. A lot of the specifics of the dream are too fuzzy to remember now, but my grandma told me a couple of times, "It's been a year."

When I woke up this morning, the dream and the message was still pressing on my mind. I asked KT what day it was, and sure enough, it has been exactly one year since my grandmother passed away. Members of my faith will understand the significance of a year after passing. It is the time that we can perform religious ordinances on behalf of our deceased loved ones. I did not go to bed thinking of my grandma and my grandma was not a religious woman. But, I think I understand what she was telling me.

Have you ever had an experience with a deceased loved one?


  1. That's awesome! I haven't had a dream about someone who's died, but I have had dreams about our future babes! What a neat experience :)

  2. I haven't. This is such a great message.

  3. That's really special. I'm sure you know what you should do next.

    I had a dream about my Uncle on the night he died. In the dream he told me he loved me and that he was sorry that he never told me while he was alive.

    I also dream about my children. I dreamed I was having a boy when I was newly pregnant. Low and behold the ultrasound revels that indeed it is a boy. I dreamed I was having a blonde girl with blue eyes. Low and behold I give birth to a blondie with blue eyes. Those dreams for me are the most "real" and they always stick with me.

  4. I got goosebumps reading this...that is so special that you had this experience...
    I've never really had this type of thing happen to me, although I do dream of my dad who is deceased. I am able to tell him things in my dream that I wasn't able to when he was alive...

    Do you have plans to do your grandma's temple work?...Is your grandfather still living?

  5. I totally got goosebumps, too.


Always happy to hear from you! Comments make my day, just please keep them uplifting and positive. Thanks for stopping by!
