This only happened to me a few weeks ago, so after thinking about it I've decided to tell you guys about my lovely Nan who died in 2005 and my visit to her after she died.
I, my sister and my Nan are the only people who believe in ghosts in our family. When we were kids my Nan was forever telling us of her ghostly experiences she had in her lifetime, there were quite a few!
My Nan Alma was like our second mum and I miss her still terribly.
Every weekend was spent at my Nan's home doing silly things like watching Gladiators, Blind Date, Strange But True, drawing tattoo's with biro on her arm, painting her nails and doing her hair, then dancing round the room until we were exhausted. She was the most fun Nan we could have wished for and I couldn't imagine life without her.
When I was a child I had a dream that she was taken away from me and was sad, so I ran down to her house and made her promise me she would give me a sign when she passed on that she was happy, I know it sounds morbid but I needed to know that she was just as happy in the afterlife when she got there, it means a lot to me.
My Nan sadly passed away in Sept 2005 in hospital after suffering from MSRA, she had terribly bad knee and had taken a fall in the night and couldn't get up, I don't want to explain the injuries she suffered they are too horrific and upsetting.
In the hospital for 3 days I never left her side when she was sleeping I brushed her hair, held her hand and told her how beautiful she was and that we all loved her. My mother and uncle stayed with her on the 3rd night I didn't want to leave her but me and my sister were exhausted so we went and had a nights sleep.
Sadly in the night my Nan passed away and since then I have been to spiritualists and churches etc. Just to get hold of her but to no avail.
But last week I had the strangest dream, I was in her old house sitting on the chair I had always sat on as a child I looked around and there was my sister as a toddler looking at me and giving me a cheeky smile and giggling behind her teddy bear. Then I saw my Nan sitting there watching the TV sipping her tea! I was in shock! It was like I had gone back 20 years but I knew I was there as I am today - 24years old.
Anyway, she put her cup down and turned to me and said, "There you are poppet! Your finally here, I'm going to make another cup of tea and get some cake". I didn't know what to say, there was my Nan that I missed so much my heart physically ached and she was going to make a cup of tea! I looked at my sister again who seemed really shy and kept smiling and giggling behind her teddy bear she must have been about 7 or 8 years old (my sister is 3 years older than me).
Then my Nan came back and walked over to me to give me the cup of tea, she bent over smiling at me saying "have some cake poppet I've made it especially for you". I just grabbed her round the waist (I was sitting down) and said " Nan I miss and love you so much" I looked at her and she sat down next to me and gave me a big hug and said " don't stop smiling Penny, I miss and love you too".
At that point I woke up, I'm so happy that she kept her promise to me. I know she is happy and has my sister for company as a toddler) hopefully I will have another dream encounter with her in my lifetime, fingers crossed! I told my sister and she was so happy, hopefully my Nan will visit her soon, it would mean the world to her. It means the world to me:)
