Sandy W's Experience 2948
I want to preface my story with this..........During the course of my life, I've had several experiences with 'visitations' from both my deceased brother and father. This really didn't start I until I was in my 30s. These visitations only happen when I am in a dream state. They are different from a regular dream and have a different quality about them from a regular dream. I've had regular dreams with both my father and brother in them and can easily tell what is just a regular dream and what is what I term a visitation. Rarely do I just have a regular dream with either of these two loved ones. Most are visitations and even those are few and far between. I point this out because it is the moment I awoke from this dream, I knew without question, it was a visitation and not 'just a dream' as some people would like to imagine.
In November of 2013 my daughter was pregnant with her first child, my first grandchild. When she was approximately 26 weeks along I had a 'visitation' from my granddaughter. We had already been told the sex and name of the baby. I dreamt that my granddaughter was sitting up in what looked like a gun metal gray steel shoebox. She was sitting up and talking to me. She was perfectly formed with chubby cheeks, dark hair and was an extremely happy baby. She was incredibly excited and incredibly small. She looked to be around 13-15 inches in length, not the size of a newborn at all. Very tiny. I was very excited to see her as well. She told me how excited and anxious she was to be born. We talked for quite a bit but a lot of what she told me I do not remember except quite specifically I remember she told me "I know that I am well loved already. I know that I am very much wanted and I can't wait to be born". Again, much was communicated, but these three sentences are the only specific words I clearly remember. There was just a huge sense of her being incredibly anxious, excited and happy to be born. I then went to get my husband so I could show him and introduce him to his new granddaughter. As we were walking back to this metal shoebox thing, I realized that I had put the lid on it before I went to get my husband. My heart went up into my throat and I froze in panic. I thought 'why in the world did I put the lid on that box? She probably can't breath in there" I was so frightened. I was afraid that I might lift the lid and find her suffocated. I took the lid off and there she sat, happy, with a big smile on her face.
I woke up. As soon as I did, I told everyone I knew about my 'visitation' Much of my family and many of my friends know of my history and past experience with these. Most people believe in these experiences I've had, there are some that take it with a grain of salt. It doesn't matter to me, I know these are real experiences and will share them regardless of anyone's belief. Their belief or disbelief doesn't change anything. My pregnant daughter was one who never had her mind made up as to whether or not what I experienced was true. Anyway, that didn't stop me from telling her! I even joked, I sure hope this doesn't mean that Emilia is coming early! Never imagining really that she would. I feel idiotic in hindsight as every sign was there and the baby even told me...I can't wait to be born. Needless to say, my daughter went into labor at 29 weeks, 6 days. Emilia Rose was born on thanksgiving morning. She weighed 3lbs, 1. oz and I think she was 15-16 inches long. When I got the call that my daughter was on labor, everything about that dream made sense. Her being so tony, telling me how she couldn't wait to come into this world, the shoebox that represented the incubator box she would be placed in and live for the next six weeks. Even the part of the dream where I was concerned about her not being able to breath hit me like a ton of bricks as the OB explained that their biggest concern with a baby this small was the underdevelopment of their lungs and not to be surprised or alarmed if we didn't hear crying at her birth. Wow. The whole thing just floored me. Emilia is six months old now and as happy and as healthy as she could be. I will always have a very special bond with that baby as we met before she was born. Just incredible.
I was able to tell many of my visitation before Emilia's birth, and the circumstances matched with what I was shown, several of the skeptics, including my daughter, are a little more prone to believe that some of my dreams are not merely dreams.
Any associated medications or substances with the potential to affect the experience? No
Was the kind of experience difficult to express in words? No
At the time of this experience, was there an associated life threatening event? No
What was your level of consciousness and alertness during the experience? I was asleep
Was the experience dream like in any way? It was a dream
Did you experience a separation of your consciousness from your body? No
What emotions did you feel during the experience? Extreme happiness and excitability
Did you hear any unusual sounds or noises? No
Did you recognize any familiar locations or any locations from familiar religious teachings or encounter any locations inhabited by incredible or amazing creatures? No
Did you see a light? No
Did you meet or see any other beings? No
Did you observe or hear anything regarding people or events during your experience that could be verified later? Yes My granddaughter told me she 'couldn't wait to be born' and she sure didn't wait.
Did you notice how your 5 senses were working, and if so, how were they different? No
Did you have any sense of altered space or time? No
Did you have a sense of knowing, special knowledge, universal order and/or purpose? No
Did you reach a boundary or limiting physical structure? No
Did you become aware of future events? No I should have become aware, but believe it or not, even with everything the baby said, it truly never even occurred to me that she might actually be born early, even though I even joked about it to my daughter. If I had actually believed in even the real chance of that occurring, I probably wouldn't have laughed about it. No one in my family has ever had premature birth and when she said, I can't wait to be born, I was thinking along the lines of....I can't wait for Christmas, doesn't mean you show up to the party 10 weeks early!
Did you have any psychic, paranormal or other special gifts following the experience that you did not have prior to the experience? No
Did you have any changes of attitudes or beliefs following the experience? Yes It makes me wonder....do we choose a premature birth? Seems so doesn't it? Also, I am now certain that souls are aware of who will parent them, who their grandparents are, etc. She came to me. She knew I was the one person in the family that she could connect with on a soul level, that I am open to that. She knew my daughter loved her very much already and wanted her so badly. I didn't know that souls had this kind of awareness before they were born. Now I have no doubts.
Has your life changed specifically as a result of your experience? No
Have you shared this experience with others? Yes Everyone!
What was the best and worst part of your experience? The best part was that this soul was about to come into the world and what she showed me came to pass, it proved to some others that what I've experienced is indeed real. Unlike the visitations from my deceased brother and father, there is nothing I can point to to prove those experiences are just as valid. That only matters because I desire for those skeptics to know we are so much more than what we think we are. We are eternal beings and live both before and after this short life on earth.
Following the experience, have you had any other events in your life, medications or substances which reproduced any part of the experience? NoDid the questions asked and information you provided accurately and comprehensively describe your experience? Yes
My son in law snapped a few pictures of my daughter with baby Emilia (the little time and space traveler!) and I think you will find it interesting. He snapped three or four in a row. All of them except one was 'normal'. I included three to show you that one second 'it' is not there, the next second 'it' is. What is that green orb? A spirit? I think it may actually be a photograph of my daughters love aura for her baby girl that she has been so worried about being born so early. Her love sure fits the description. Or is this special baby a natural healer? Not sure, except that's a pretty special baby.....even if she didn't come visit me before she was born or have green orbs floating about her ;-)
