I was sleeping peaceful in my bed when at 11 p.m. Rang the phone in my house and I received a bad news: my great-grandmother was dead.
I was very attached to my great-grandmother, and for this reason i busted into tears so I suffered from it very very much.
I didn't manage to calm down, I was troubled and I continued crying and I felt very bad because of her death. My mother took me to sleep with her . I wasn't able to fall asleep , when, suddenly, I fell asleep immediately , in the bed. My mother realized it.
But what was happening in the dream was something that never had happening to me and never again happened since that night.
I was in a wonderful. marvelous place : there were some green meadows, I was upon a cliff which overlooks vertical on the sea. In front of me, an huge blue ocean extended.
I looked at me, I wore a white dress, a tunic.
I fel a great sensation of peace, of love, of self-fulfilment, the problems that I had on the earth didn't exist anymore, it was like if I had forgotten the world and the material life.
I wanted to overlook at the edge of the high cliff ... but it was lengthening in front of my way, it didn't let me lean out the abyss that ended in a cliff in the sea. But I knew the color of roks was a pure white.
I was continually smiling and being happy without evident reasons, because I had inside of me an endless serenity, peace and calm, I should say that I felt pleasure...
"I knew", I can't say how, but I knew, that the persons came there where I was on the left, I think where it was a wood ... and then it was necessary to continue the way on the right, into green meadows.
The ocean in front of me was illuminated in the center by the sun ... and there were some little roads that passed through the meadows.
But it was an other source of light, that it wasn't the sun, and it was much more strong and brilliant and it came from right, from the same direction that I had to go beginning from I was at the moment.
There was like a diffused lighting in the air and surrounding.
There was so much light and I felt a sensation of “ hot”.
After I was arrived there, came alongside me a light being, which I should describe like a column of light, I wasn't absolutely able to see him right in front , really he continued to stay on my right without appear before me, he slipped, but He was there and he was a lightning column, a being. He communicated with me, neither by voice, nor by signs. He simply mentally TRASMiITTED TO ME what he had to communicate , that is my great-grand mother was there.
I was really very fine and I didn't care about my return to the earth and I was happy for my great-grand mother but i didn't feel grief because of her death as I felt until a few moments before I was there.
So I turned towards the source of light, that very bright on the right , that it wasn't the sun, and I was trying to continue the way to that direction, and transmitted mentally to the lightning column my intention to stay there near the great light.
But just when I was trying to go on the right, the lightning column with a severe “tone” , in my mind, told: "that's not the moment yet!" and suddenly I woke up.
I told to my motheri the dream that I had just had.
I tried also to draw the place where I had been...but like the
