 I just thought I would share a personal story about the spirits of loved ones

Mister got home from his road trip last night mid evening. I had such broken sleep due to the keet0n nagging me for hours at a time the last three 'nights' that I actually managed to go to sleep around the time he did. It was an interesting night.

I believe that Mister's Grandmother dropped by to check in on him in the wee hours as we slept. She has a lovely drifting, gently whirling misty energy, all kindness and memory. I woke from dreaming about (mister's) Grandpa. The dream was like a glimpse into Grandpa's general sort of days and feelings. The impression it gave me is that he finds comfort and happy memories in living in the house they had together, surrounded by things that remind him of her. It was a very sweet, objective dream, and I woke up just then, believing that the dream was giving me the clue that she was near. I think she was showing me what she sees when she drops in to see Grandpa. Thereby, letting me know she was now near me; a clue that she checks in on all her loved ones.

So I focused all my energy on telling her that her Grandson is a very good man. I feel full well that she knows already, but hearing it directly from his wife who never got to meet her, is sharing that knowledge with her all the more.

As soon as mister stirred in the night, I told him my experience so he could feel it too. Even in the dark I could hear the smile in his voice, 'Yeah, you would have really liked my Grandma, and she would have liked you too.' And he snuggled in for a warm hug.

How lovely. It's been quite a while since I've had a night time visitor, but when things like this happen I always enjoy it.

It was really lovely. I suspect I am more receptive at night, because most of the visits I am clearly conscious of have happened in some context connected to sleep.

The other sort happen as a sort of aside when I am on autopilot such as quietly doing errands or washing my face, things like that.

I enjoy them too.

I think that the sleep/autopilot condition opens up another part of our sensory system. They're both very like the hypnotic/trance state that we often strive for in ritual in order to contact the divine.

Yep, yep - I had exactly the same logic. :)
