Experience description:   

Since the death of my 12 year old daughter, Jessica on May 15, 2003.   I have been waiting to hear from her, some sort of message or anything just to help me find comfort.  I have been searching my spirituality since her death and have just completed Sylvia Browne's book, "God, Creation and Tools for Life.  I have also read some of her other books in the past.

Last night while home alone I was lying in total darkness talking to God and my spirit guide.  I was asking them to help me to see Jessica in hopes that I may find some comfort in that.  My eyes were closed, but I was not asleep and suddenly I began to feel a vibration through out my whole body,  it was very intense and seemed to start at my head and moved through my body down to my feet.  The vibration seemed to consume me.

Slowly I felt my self moving from my bed,   I was not being pulled,  I was just drifting,  as I reached the foot of my bed,  I felt a bit of fear but was able to calm my fears by telling myself, "Lori, this is what you asked for, you are going to see your baby girl." and I seemed to calm right down.  Directly across from the foot of my bed are French doors, I seemed to drift towards them.  It was so real. I thought that I was going to crash right through the doors, so I put my hands forward and noticed that I could not see my hands, suddenly I was through the doors and flying through the sky.  The sky was totally black but there were stars every where. 

I saw things that I assumed were spirits,  I saw many some I flew up to and could see a face but I didn't recognize any of them.  I was calling for my daughter, I just kept flying around calling her name.  I felt no fear I just felt that I was trying to find her so that I could see her and tell her once more that I Love Her.

Suddenly,  my dog (Large Dog) barked, and I was back in my bed,  I could still fell the vibrations through out my body for a few minutes,  but there was also a sense of some kind of loving comfort that enveloped my whole body.  I just laid there until all the vibrations were gone,  I looked around my room hoping maybe that my daughter was there with me be I was all alone.  All I felt was anger at the stupid dog for barking and bringing me back.  I will be trying again soon.
