My sister passed about 25 years ago. She was 35 and had breast cancer. The last 5 days or so of her life, she started speaking to my grandmother who had passed about 10 years earlier. This was my dad's mom. I will say, she was heavily medicated and said some very strange things but the consistent things she said were about my grandmother. The last 2 days or so of her life she could see grandma. I was alone with her and asked her what grandma wanted and she stated, " to help me on my journey." I found this interesting so I told her when it was my time I wanted her (my sister) to come for me. She then told me, "I don't know, I'll try, but there's an order here." During this time of my life I absolutely did not believe in any ghosts or paranormal things because of the church I belonged to. I thought any ghosts or spirits were demons.
A few weeks after my sister passed I started to dream about her. I didn't understand or believe these were "visitations" from her literally but have come to understand it now. I've always been a "dreamer". These dreams were so vivid and over the years I've had many. None of the dreams were bad and some were quite beautiful. She let me know she was well and there were dreams where I was able to ask her questions. Not sure this is the place to post them though.
My dad passed about 10 years ago and he's also visited me in my dreams. I had one dream where I got to tell him I missed and loved him and he told me he missed and loved me too. I've not had near the dreams about him that I've had about my sister. I believe this is because her passing was much more tragic due to her age and leaving 3 small children behind. My dad had a wonderful attitude about passing and told us he lived a great life. He passed suddenly and we were glad he didn't linger and suffer like my sister. I wish he could tell me if she was there to greet him like grandma was for her.
My hope is to someday speak to a reputable medium and possibly connect with her and my dad.
Thank you all for reading this. I know there's many thoughts and beliefs about dreams but I believe there are a multitude of reasons behind our dreams.
