Some of you may recall about my asking for assistance contacting my father who suddenly passed in August. I may have gotten that contact.

I have had a lot of ups and downs over the past 4 months. More downs than up. Being Christmas was no exception. I went through the motions of buying gifts for our three boys, trying to be okay around family, etc. Still I felt down and mad most of the time. I did not even really want to do Christmas. It just did not feel right. I am an only child and my father was very close to me. We would do things together all the time. All that is gone now.

On Christmas Eve I went to my parents house to pick up my mother, so she could spend Christmas day with us. As she was getting things around to go, I went into the living room, near dad's favorite chair and said "dad, come be with us for Christmas."

Moving on to late Christmas eve. We got the two younger boys to bed so we could get the Christmas gifts under the tree. The oldest one was taking the couch, as my mother was in his room. We settled down for the night. About an hour later, my wife got up to use the bathroom. I figured it was a good time to check the fire, and stoke it up. I got up and went to the living room. My oldest was still awake and got up. He was asking me something as I started stoking the fire. We suddenly heard a large bang in the kitchen. We looked at each other, and I said, "there is no one in the kitchen."

We both went out and turned the light on. My mom came out of my sons room, which is the opposite side of the kitchen. We found a small vase lying on the floor, not broken. My wife came out of the bathroom and asked what the noise was. We showed her, and she said it was given to us from someone with some flowers at my fathers funeral. I recalled seeing it, but not thinking too much about it at the time. She said it was on the cabinet shelf. Here is the strange part. It sat behind a little railing, about 2-3 inches tall, and was right next to a picture of me holding my oldest son when he was young, and my dad behind us. We tried to reason things out, how it may have fallen, but there is no possible way to make it over that ledge without coming up and over. We all tried for like a half hour to figure it out. It just does not make sense.

Went back to bed. I have had a couple of dreams with my dad in it, but he never acknowledged me in them. Just after he passed, I stared using a CPAP for my apnea. I hardly ever dream with it on, I guess that is quite a common thing. Well, I had a dream that night.

In the dream we were all at the food court of our local mall. It kind of felt like a family get together, but I don't recall who all was there besides my wife, but I knew there were more people.

My dad was there. I said something like "How are you here, I thought you were gone?" (I clearly recall "gone" not dead) He said "well I am here now, I am fine." My wife said something to the effect that she thought he was "gone" too, and he said "everything is fine, you people just worry too much." and he gave me this goofy look, like he used to when he thought someone was saying or doing something stupid.

I woke up in tears about 6AM. The boys were stirring, trying to get a peek at what was under the Christmas tree. I composed myself, and suddenly felt better, lighter, happier than I have in the past 4 months.

I went out, made breakfast, and even did the big dinner later. We had a great Christmas. The boys even got a couple of gifts that my dad had picked out for them before he passed. My mom shops year round for Christmas, so not a big surprise, but special.

Was this real contact with him, just a dream, wishful thinking? I don't know, but I feel as if a great weight has been lifted.

I would like to believe it was real...and a wonderful Christmas gift to you.
Thankyou for sharing.
I lost my dad a few years back and would love to have that gift, as well.

Thank you. It sure felt real. More real than most dreams.

I shared it, as I feel that this is not something I should keep to myself. The need to tell the story is strong for some reason. I talked about it with my family, and they seem to think it was real too.

Kinetic energy, for the vase? I am kidding! Great story, and I bet that was your dad! God Bless, Merry Christmas, and Happy New Year!

If you are feeling better and your dream felt real then I would say that it is definitely real.
We dont know how things work outside of our normal perception, so if you remember him in the "dream" making his face that told you to stop being stupid you should listen to him.

Think of it like this:

If you meditated and saw/conversed with him....was it real?
If you astrally projected yourself and met him on another plane...was it real?
If you dreamed of him and interacted with him...was it real?

I'm of the opinion it's all real....just misunderstood or passed off as nothing.

Always look for subtle signs and dreams...that can/could be nothing else...but them...and you'll know. And I think now you do...

Pay attention...I've had so many of these myself...I do.

*mother left me a note to find after her death...it read:
"Don't think of me as GONE....just AWAY for awhile...for we WILL meet again!"

In dreams and goofy out-of-place instances....we have. Pay attention!

God Bless, M.S.

My wife loved birds.
My nickname for her was "TweetyBird".
We even had a couple of exotic parrots, which I donated to the local zoo after she became ill.
Shortly after she passed at age 38 from breast cancer...I was sitting out on my deck talking out loud to her and telling her how much I missed and loved her.

It was a beautiful sunny day and I was wishing she was there to share it with me.

Out of nowhere...a small sparrow or wren flew down and landed on my head and stood there for a good 60 seconds.
As this never happened before on the deck...I took as her visiting and comforting me.

My condolences to you. It is sad to hear, but the bird thing is remarkable.

I can't fathom loosing my wife, and hope I do not. She is due to have her gallbladder removed on Jan. 8th. I know it is a routine surgery, and the chances of anything going wrong are remotely slim. Still it scares me a little.

Thank you! I will certainly try to pay more attention to things.

Hey just be careful with all this stuff. I'm not trying to be insensitive, but when you think you are asking for your dad, personally I would just try to move on. You don't know if what you could be dealing with is an imposter, which is quite likely. I'm just saying - be very careful.

My wife a had similar experience this Christmas Eve. Believe me, (lol, now I sound like Trump), what you experienced was real! Many deceased loved ones try to give signs to their loved ones they left behind during this time of year. My wife lost two of her sisters to cancer. Since then my wife has received incredible signs from them over the years. She was very close to her recent sister who just passed last September.

These are the signs that happened this Christmas Eve which will help you validate your recent experience from your father...

My wife and I always entertain family with a large dinner on Christmas Eve. My wife and I both work together preparing the yearly dinner. While we were both in our kitchen preparing for the nights Christmas Eve meal, our Golden Retriever "Pina" started to act extremely weird.

(Our Golden Retriever is a great watch dog and will bark and fiercely growl at anyone approaching our house or if she hears an outside noise. She will even bark at family members she knows when they approach our house! Her immediate response is to run to our front door or climb onto the sofa and look through our front window to see where the noise is coming from).

During our meal preparation, "Pina" was lying on the floor and just started growling off-and-on under her breath and would than let out a occasional loud bark. She never ran to the door or looked out through the front window which both my wife and I felt was extremely strange. I was getting annoyed because this Pina's growling and barking was going on for a good 5 minutes! I kept yelling at her saying "Pina, what is your problem???" Well later that night when we were all together opening gifts it became apparent what she was growling and barking at...

My wife opened a gift from our daughter in-law which turned out to be blouse. She held it up and marveled how much she liked it. She than retreated to our back room to try it on. As she was putting on her blouse, something fell from above and her hit on the side of her head and fell between her feet. She looked down to find a brand new shiny 2018 penny. She was speechless when she came out from the back room and said to all of us "you'll never believe what just happened to me in the back room." She than told us what happened and showed us the penny. We both immediately connected our dog Pina's annoying growling and barking with the penny incident of her sister showing us a sign she was present.

So you're not alone my friend. Our loved ones want us to know they're OK and they're with us. We've gotten many signs. I actually created a thread years ago about an incredible sign from her oldest sister. If you need more validation, check out my thread. I included pictures that prove it!

A Sign from the Other Side, Just Simply Incredible!

I'd say that was him letting you know he was with you. I have had "things" happen when I really needed them to , and I'm pretty sure it was the person I was thinking about. Nobody else has to know or believe you, it was meant for you. I'd take it as a sign he is good where he is, and try to just remember the good things.

Merry Christmas.

I just joined to let you know I had a similar experience after my mother passed away. I was sitting at my desk with my back to the rest of the office - thinking about how I wished Mom was here - BAM! I swiveled around immediately to check out what large object might have fallen off the shelves.

My porcelain clock was in the middle of the room, in perfect condition, standing straight up. There was no way that clock could
have fallen from the top of the china cabinet - landing several feet away - standing straight up - not broken.

Nobody could explain to me how that could possibly happen. You just gave me confirmation that was certainly my Mother - I suspected but you know how a lot of people are - they would have thought I was crazy saying that.

Thank you for posting your incredible experience ;-)

I am happy for you. I am glad the weight is lifted. Maybe your dad saw you were having a hard time and thought you could use a hand. Let you know he is ok.

It's real in my opinion. I have experienced similar things and dreams. There is something very different about the dreams and occurrences that feels extraordinary and (to me, anyway) very real. I look forward to the next visit.

Definitely real contact from your dad! What a blessing and I'm so happy for you!

If you still doubt, then just try to explain why you woke up with suddenly, a burden lifted? That's the most compelling proof, I think. 💞

2 short tales....

My late best friend + brother and I played in Rock bands together for 50 yrs...he used to run around saying "number nine, number nine, number nine"...from the Beatles -Revolution #9 song.

A week after he passed, I was napping on couch...saw my phone rcvd something, was flashing, but heard nothing incoming....can you guess the ending???

No message...just the caller i.d.....#9, #9,#9, #9, #9, #9, #9, #9, #9...I knew he made it to the other side....

2nd story...I cared 24/7 for mother till passing, and we were really close...at least once a year....I get a call from the cemetery office...and? They say no one called!

Pay attention to the little things. The veil between world's is thinnng these days and easier to see thru..*

*FYI: As another above advised...be careful. As a life long sensitive, meditator and astral traveler...negative souls, entities, dark ones...can appear as anyone or thing on the other side....and they are real.

Again, sorry for your loss, and blessings!
