I've always been really sceptical about life after death and receiving messages from the other side. I've never been to a medium or anything similar. Never even considered it. Until now. My mum passed away in march and since then me and other family members have been having dreams. Mum died early on a Wednesday morning and that night there were unusual noises in my house. Almost like someone was stomping around up and down the stairs. I went to the hospital the day after she died to see her, whilst I was there I told her that if it was her stomping about could she please not do it at night, it gives me the creeps. Nothing out of the ordinary has happened since. I then had a dream where I was sat at a table with mum and she looked at me said "I just need cake, it makes me feel more human" in my dream I looked at her and she said "I'm really sorry I just couldn't cope with the pain anymore" I woke up in tears. My brothers GF then had a dream that we were at the funeral and mum was stood in the aisle looking at the coffin. My brothers GF said no one but her could see mum, she said mum was stood facing the coffin crying so she went to put an arm around her and my mum kept saying "I'm so sorry I didn't realise how serious it all was, I didn't realise it would be like this". She then woke up. My dad then had a dream that he was at home in the cupboard under the stairs, and as he turned to leave mum was stood in front of him and looked him in the eye and said "it's ok, the babies on its way". I've taken comfort from these dreams in a strange kind of way, my mum knew the thought of ghosts and spirits etc really scared me and I said to her when I went to see her that I don't mind her being around but I don't want to know she's there with things happening, I even said "come and see me in my dreams, that would be nice". Now I don't know if its just my wishful thinking but is there anyone who knows if people can contact you through dreams? Mum died of idiopathic pulmonary hypertension and right heart failure following a hernia repair op, it was very sudden and not something we expected, but she had all the symptoms that the condition presented, we don't know if she knew she had it but we are all in no disillusion that she was in a lot of pain. I've taken comfort from my dream in the sense that she didn't want to go, one of my first feelings was anger at it all but since my dream I feel more certain that she wasn't given a choice IYKWIM? Is it possible that she wanted us all to know something or are we just being crazy?
