Real Psychic Experiences

Thank You From A Son


I am a 75 year old woman who has spent most of my life as an artist.

I have had many psychic experiences, but about 5 years ago, I had my first experience with visions.

My story for today: I was working in my studio when a man came into my studio/gallery and spent some time looking at my paintings as well as paintings of other artists in the gallery. He then came and asked me if I could do a painting of his son from photos. I explained to him that I usually work from life. He told me that his son had passed. I said I would have to see the photos to see if there was enough information to work with. A Few days later he came in and showed me photos of a young man in a military uniform. I asked him if his son had died in combat. He became very emotional when telling his son died of suicide on his return from active duty. I could understand his pain. My son too had died of suicide. I then decided I would paint the portrait even though the photos were less than what I would have liked them to be.

I took the photos and that night and held them during my meditation. I went to bed and woke up during a dream by someone poking my shoulder. I opened my eyes and before me were two hands holding a large pair of eye glasses. Nothing was said and it lasted only a few seconds, but it was very clear and I remembered it and knew it had something to do with the young man and the painting. I had no idea what it meant but thought of it often as I worked on the portrait.

After a few weeks I called the parents to come in to see what I had accomplished so far, and ask for their input. I did not think it was quite finished and was most concerned with the eyes as I had very little detail from the photos.

When they arrived, they both said the eyes were perfect. I did some tweaking and had the portrait framed.

That night I asked for clarification on the vision. I was again awakened and the same vision of the hands holding the large eye glasses... This time he said, "Thank you for your vision in a frame."

I relayed the story to the parents, who were most grateful.

I have had many visions (or hallucinations) but no others with any meaning.

I often see people standing by my bed. They are dressed and look like anyone you may meet on the street. (except one more angelic, which I'll talk about later) I do not know them, they say nothing. I do not feel any fear.

Does anyone have any explanations for these or have similar experiences? I feel another dimension just opens up.

It sounds the meeting was serendipitous.

My thoughts, of your experience: when the living long for a deceased, family member. The deceased son felt this and took the opportunity to use your artistic talent to convey a message to his family. He gave proof by allowing you to see him clearly when you purposely set prepared yourself by meditation and intent to see.

I agree that during sleep we are quite open, and that the veil between - physical world and spirit are quite thin allowing a bridge for loved was to descend.

In the UK psychic Art is used as a tool to give a message from one or two mediums in an audience. A description of the deceased with their message.

When we sleep or are coming in and out of the sleeping state, our "filters" are more expanded and we can sometimes perceive a wider range of frequencies and vibrations. These souls exist on a plane that vibrates at a different rate than the physical earth, but for those that develop the sense, are born with it, or are in an altered state, the range can include their dimension.

Your event sounds really wonderful and I'm happy that you were able to experience it.

Thanks so much for sharing.
