My Sister and My Emotionally Vivid and Realistic Dream

Posted on December 16, 2010

My sister, Brenda, died suddenly on November 9, 2007, from a blood clot that came from emergency surgery. I had been taking care of her (we lived together) and changing her bandages. We had gone to the doctor the day before she died, and he said he thought she was healing fine and had removed the surgical staples. The next morning I found her dead on her bedroom floor. She was 50 years old when she died and it was the hardest thing I every had to face in my entire life.

I cried every day for several months, until I thought my heart would break. Then one morning I had one of the most emotionally vivid and realistic dreams I ever had in my life. In the dream I had gone to my sisters room and when I opened the door, she was there lying on her back on her bed. I was absolutely stunned and could not believe my eyes, because in this dream I was fully aware of the fact that she had died. She did not look at me when I opened her door, instead she was looking up at the ceiling and had a very puzzled look on her face, as if she was trying to recall a dream or maybe she was trying to determine how she came to be back in her room.

I was so stunned that I could not speak at first, but that was soon replaced with overwhelming joy and I said, Oh! Youre back!” Then I hurried over to the side of the bed and looked down at her, but she still did not say anything or even looked at me, even when I sat down on the bed beside her. She still had such a confused look on her face and I thought that perhaps I should try to help her remember. So, I began telling her all about the day she died and how I pleaded with her not to leave me, but it was useless; even the paramedics knew there was no chance of reviving her.

Then all of a sudden I stopped, because I realized I was wasting time and I had so many questions rushing into my mind. So, I asked her if she remembered what she saw when she died. She said, Roses, lots and lots of roses. I was surprised, because I guess I expected her to say one of the many things I had heard that others have said, like A bright light in a tunnel or Loved ones calling to them. So, I repeated, Roses? to which she replied, And lots of other flowers too. I suddenly felt very impatient because that was not what I wanted to hear, so I asked, What about Mom? Did you see Mom? My sister, who was still looking up at the ceiling, replied, Yes, Mom was there. I felt this excited exhilaration and hurriedly asked, What about Grandma did you see her? She softly replied, Yes, she was there everyone was there.

I had not felt so much pure joy in a very long time and was silent for a moment. Then I began wondering if pets were allowed in heaven, because my sister loved dogs and I had to have her 15 year old dog put to sleep a couple of weeks after she died. The poor old dog had gotten to where she could not stand up on her own and the Vet told me it would only get worse. It was so hard to do, because I knew how much Brenda loved that dog. She even told me one time that if she should die, and Muffin was dead, to dig the dog up and bury her with her. Well, I could not do that, so I had put a picture of Muffin in her coffin. The Vet asked how I wanted to dispose of the dogs body and had mentioned cremation. Suddenly, an idea came to mind, as I told the Vet to cremate the body and I would spread them over my sisters grave. When I got the ashes, my other sister and I went to the cemetery and pulled up part of the newly laid sod, dug a hole and put the ashes in it. In my dream, I told Brenda about putting Muffin to sleep and asked her, Was Muffin there with you too? Still looking up at the ceiling, she said, Yes, Muffin was there, and lots of other dogs and other animals too. This made me even happier to know that Brenda had been with everyone we loved and even had her old dog. I was happy because I felt Heaven was complete for her.

After this, I suddenly found myself back in my bedroom and I was getting dressed. I still remember the overwhelming joy I felt in this dream to know my sister was back and remember thinking that this old house wont be so lonely any more. I hurried back across the house to her bedroom, but when I opened the door this time, she was no longer in her bed and was sitting in a chair across from the bed. She looked at me for the first time, but had this far off look in her eyes. I had a feeling of dread come over me, because I knew it was not meant for her to stay with me, so I asked, How long can you stay with me? She looked at me and said, I have to go back now. Then she slowly faded into a white mist and was gone.

I woke up from my dream, which was so realistic and had been filled with very strong emotions, and rushed to her room. She wasnt there of course, but instead of feeling like I had lost her all over again, I felt comforted knowing she was in a beautiful place with all those she loved, even her old dog. I also felt that she had felt my terrible grief and had come to help me, which would be just like her if it was possible. It is a dream I will never forget.

    Thank you for sharing! I believe your dream was real and that your sister was letting you know she’s in a better place surrounded by beauty and loved ones. My great-grandpa had a heart attack once, and was dead for several minutes before he was revived. He also reported being in a garden filled with beautiful flowers, and he also saw his little dog, who had died several years prior.

  2. Bella says:

    wait, how old is your sister? you said she was 50 but I think its a typo

  3. Pete says:

    The dead can communicate with the living through dreams, I have experienced it myself
    and yes the dreams are very real. I’m sure your sister was communicating with you, letting you know she is fine. take comfort in that, you will be together again.

  4. scarygirl67 says:

    Your story touched me very deeply, and I choose to believe that your sister wanted to tell you she was okay. She had to have known that you would be devastated, and she wanted to give you assurance.

    Peace be with you, and I am so sorry for your loss. I hope you continue to take comfort in this dream.

  7. Carri says:

    I believe your sister is talking to you. i also believe god allows our loved one to talk to us through dreams because we are deeply hurt.

  8. jdbaby says:

    Your story touched me very deeply, it brought tears to my eyes and I had a hard time finishing it. I recall a story my dad told me about my grandpa. After my grandpa passed my dad had a very hard time dealing with it, not only the lose of a parent but my dad carried a lot of guilt with him. He always felt bad that he didn’t tell my grandpa enough that he loved him. A few weeks after my grandpa passed my dad saw my grandpa standing at the foot of his bed, my dad started to talk but my granpa put up his hand and said “it’s ok, I always knew, I love you too” and then he was gone. I didn’t hear this story until just recently about a year ago, my grandpa passed over twenty years ago. Thank you so much for sharing this with us!

  9. Raquel says:

    I recently discover this web site and i love it! I love your story very much and it touched me deeply because 2 weeks ago I had to put my cat of five years to sleep. It was the hardest thing I had ever done. I’m so glad we will see our pets in heaven. Thank you for your story. God bless you. I’m very, very sorry for your loss, but look what a wonderful thing had become of it.
