She felt it as her grandmother died.

This is something that I have been thinking about since it happened, just a few hours ago.(5 hours more or less after writing this) And I need to get it out, before I convince myself that it didn’t happen or something else was said.

A little background about it.
My girlfriend’s grandmother became very sick with cancer 3 months ago and the last month she was extremely weak and ill.
My girlfriend was very near to her grandmother, because she had pretty much been raised by her and almost every day since she became ill, she visited her on the hospital and the last few days she was on a nursing home, she was also there every single day, for most of the day.

Well 2 days ago, she got a call from her grandfather telling her that the doctor had said that she might not last very much longer, and a little over a day after that she passed away. May she rest in peace.

But what I found somewhat scary and since has pusled my mind is this.
My and I girlfriend had just comed home from the nursing home, when she shortly after went to bed. At 23:35 I had just taken the last cigarette we had, when I heard my girlfriend from the bed. She sounded like she had a bad nightmare, so I walk into the bedroom and hear her say: (in Danish) Nu gør han det sgu. åh nej åh nej. (In english pretty much this: Now his doing it, oh no, oh no) while she was tossing and turning in the bed. I calmed her down and told her it was a bad nightmare. 20 min after that, 23:55, her phones rings. And we knew what that meant. Her grandmother had passed away. 15 to 20 min earlier........

Now. I can't stop thinking. Could she somehow feel it happening in her sleep? The timing was just too perfect. And the words she said.... In my twisted world right now they just fit to well. Did she know that someone or something was taking her then? Death had taken her, just when she had the nightmare.

Has anyone else experienced something similar? Well. I just had to get this out, before my brain made me forget it or I just dismissed it as something I made up.

yea I think that sometimes depending on the connection you have with the person you can feel them pass. I don't understand why that is, but I've heard stories and have even had a similar experience, even though mine had to do with spirit visitation of some sort...

It's very possible that she felt her.
My grandmother can tell you when someone is going to die. It's not an extraordinary sense. She has just seen a lot of people die so she knows that signs. It's kind of creepy.

She was already in a state of worry and expectation over the matter. People frequently dream similar to their situation and this one was pretty potent. The skeptic side of me says it can easily be explained as thus and it's a coincidence.

The believer in me realizes that there is more to "logic" as we know it. There are more planes than we can see and our spirit, or the energy that cosmically drives us, is still unknown regarding it's basic principle.

I have to answer with: Believe as your heart says. This could be a door for you or it could be an incident of coincidence. The power of love is universal and it's energy is enormous. Communication at this level does seem plausible.

If you took the time to post on this forum, you're already telling yourself something.
Once again, are you telling yourself it's coincidence? or have you been privy to something that has peeled a layer back for you.

regards and good luck with your decision.

yes this is entirely possible

My mom told me about my dad waking up in the middle of the night, saying he'd just said goodbye to his grandmum.

My dad apparently felt he was awake when his gran came and said goodbye

the next morning they (my parents) heard she had died.

this is not too uncommon, my grandmum refuses to discuss this, but when we do she says, it will happen, no need to think this means you're special, it means you're human

I had a similar experience with my grandmother. For some reason, I am very clairvoyant, always have been, and my grandmother and I were very close. She was more like my mother than a grandmother. One night, I had a dream that she walked in the back door and said, "You've GOT to help me! I'm sick!" I woke up, and it was 4:30 a.m. I thought about calling her, just to check if she was O.K., but I knew that she would call her neighbor, if she needed help. Then I thought it might worry her, if I called that late. So, I went back to sleep. The phone rang at 7:00 a.m., and I thought "That's her calling!" It was my dad, telling me that she died twice through the night, and came back to life! She had Congestive Heart Failure! She did call the neighbor, and the ambulance took her to the hospital. She lived several more years! I asked him what time it happened, and he said "About 4:30!"

I can fully relate to this, And to me its happened more than once,

The first time, My uncle in Ireland had been ill for a few months and we knew that he would only have weeks to live,

The day he died a picture of him fell from my wall in front of me, I knew then he had passed,

the phone rang 1 hour later and I knew that the news would be that he passed, I asked the time and it was about an hour before the call,

I just stood there in shock,

Second time, I was asleep, I woke up and said my Granddads name, for some real odd reason I looked at my mobile to see the tom, 3.26 am,
I had a weird feeling that he had died but I dismissed it and went back to sleep,

first thing in the morning around 9am I had a call from family telling us that he had passed through the night, Again I asked when, and she repeated the time, I dropped the phone,

and the 3rd time was only a month back, again just an odd day thinking off him, and thinking *oh I had better call and say hey*

Cedric, my sister had a similar experience when my mother passed.

My mother had lung cancer. In late February of 2005, my mother took a turn for the worst. She was already on hospice and my father had passed about 5 and a half months previously... One day, my mother had no control of her balance and was sleeping a lot.

Well, my sister, who was helping me take care of our mother, had a job she was also trying to hold down. Before she went to work that day, my sister told me, "Now, here's the number to the VFW, if something happens, call." Well, my mother was continuously getting worse throughout the night. She had gotten so bad that me and my nephew had to hold her as she stumbled to go to the bathroom.

Anyway, about 10 o' clock, I think it was on a Saturday, my sister said that she literally had a vision of mother standing in the VFW smiling at her. She wasted no time; she told every one in the bar that they had to finish up because she was shutting the place down.

Anyway, to make a long story short, within a matter of a few days, my mother was gone. She had went into a comatose state and laid in her bed for three or four days; she didn't move.

Thanks for all the replies.

It's good to hear the my girlfriend is not the only one that has this happen.
And that it wastent something I made up in my mind.

And I certainly believe now that, people can somehow feel, when loved ones pass away.
