Real Psychic Experiences

White Smoke


One night in the months after my mother died, when I was grieving deeply for her, I either woke or was lying in bed in a pitch black room, when I saw what appeared to be white smoke swirling around my bed, I somehow felt that it was a surreal experience, but I turned on my light to check that there was not a fire in the house. When I switched the light off the smoke was still there. I can't explain how it felt, but I felt my mother's presence all around me. I also felt a weight on my body, as though someone was hugging me. Around the same time, but on another occasion, I could feel a weight beside me pressing up against me, I thought the dog had jumped on the bed, but when I felt there was nothing there. I had never heard anyone's experiences of white smoke until I googled it and found this page. I have had a few psychic experiences since the age of 10, but not that many, but my Mum and I were very close and had a psychic connection. I was also with my Mum when she died and stayed with her afterwards for several hours while I was waiting for other family members to arrive, when a prism of colour, like a rainbow appeared on her pillow, just above her head. I don't know if it was significant, but it was amazing. I am so grateful that I had these experiences, as they were very comforting at such a sad time.

I didn't tell anyone about this until recently when I told my daughter and she told me that she had heard that smoke and rainbows had psychic meaning, and I decided to find out more and hear other people's experiences. Reading that others have had similar experiences has been very interesting.

I have read your story and to some extent I can relate. My sister and myself have been very close. We aren't twins or the like, we are 2 and 1/2 years apart in age and i'll add I have 3 more sisters i'm not terribly distant from but not all that close to. My sister and I have had a tough life to say the least and although we weren't always together we were together though the most traumatic parts and I think through that formed an uncouncous bond, like a psychic link. I feel that if you can get close enough to anyone this bond can form. That from even great distances, you will always know where they are and how they are without ever speaking. Shared thoughts and what not. I can assocciate it to the bond between dogs and their families.
On a side note, and I apolgize if I don't sound simpethetic, simpithy isn't my strong suit, but don't get down about your mothers passing, death is another stage of life and no one really knows if it is the final step of life. I want to believe in reincarnation, I want to come back as a whale myself.

Genimac I am sorry for your loss.
But am happy for the proof of life and beauty surrounding your Moms passing.

I have experienced the scent of burned wood before loved ones pass for as long as I can remember.

When my Gran passed her presence was so thick it could of been cut with a knife. When I slept in her room before her burial and mass. I saw white smoke in her room. On the day of burying the casket I saw her in a solid body over her favorite church while speaking to my cousin.

In Shamanic clearing which is a release of sorts there are different colors Chakras at certain areas used
To help the dying person release the earthly coil we
Call the body. Which you re describing on her pillow.

When human dies. The silver cord that is connected to The body shrivels. The eternal soul has been said to be
Located around the belly. Others mention other areas.
In near death experiences it is believed soul exits then tunnel and a life review.
Before the souls flight is is quite evident that the the colored chakras are all involved. Hence the rainbow.

Your fortunate, it does seem to be your mother, she seems to be protecting and assuring you. And the ability you have to sense her is called clairsentience, the ability to sense the supernatural. As for the rainbow over her head, that may have been her aura, the energy all living things possess. If it was, it is no wonder she can appear to you, rainbow auras are very powerful, also if it was an aura and you can see it you have the ability of of aura seeing. I'm sorry for your loss
