Real Psychic Experiences

Pay Attention


Several years ago, my paternal grandmother was forced into a home in her old age against her will. In any case, I was living on the other side of the country and hadn't seen her for very many years at that point. We'd been very close at one point while I lived out there, but it had been a while since I'd seen her or spoken with her.

One night, I had the most terrible dream. In it, I was visiting my Grandma at the home (note: I had once done volunteer work at this place almost 20 years ago and never witnessed anything like what I am about to describe). My Grandma was not looking very happy - which did not surprise me considering the circumstances. I told her we should take a walk - and go out on the grounds in the sun. She said she couldn't because they wouldn't let her outside. I said that was crazy - of course they would - that I knew these people, they were my friends, and I could get us out for a walk no matter what. She told me that I surely did NOT know these people. I smiled at her and said I would be right back to collect her for our walk after I chatted with them.

Well - I get outside her room door, and all of the sudden the hallway is different, I smile at the people I know there, but then someone grabs me and puts me on a stretcher and I am injected with something. I am unable to move or speak. I actually FELT the injection and inability to fight them off. They start wheeling me somewhere and I am unable to do anything about it. We pass my Grandma in the hallway, and she says "DO YOU SEE WHAT I MEAN NOW?"

I woke up terrified!~ Then, suddenly, I saw her, in the corner of my room, up near the ceiling. She looked SOOO angry I could almost feel her anger. She said "please help me - DO something!"

I'm freaking out, and trying to explain to my sleepy, bewildered boyfriend why. I tell him I have to call the home - NOW. It was about 3am their time, but I just had to do it. The woman who answered could not have been nicer to me - I said I just had to make sure that my Grandma was OK - and she agreed to go check on her. She came back on the line and said that she looked to be peacefully sleeping, and was there anything in particular that I was worried about? Well - then I felt like an idiot. I thanked her and went back to bed.

Half an hour later, I could feel wind in the room (no windows or doors were open) - and it woke me up only to see my Grandma back there in the corner by the ceiling. She told me of COURSE she said I look to be peacefully sleeping you moron - you KNOW what it feels like now! Remembering the drugging I felt awful. I had to leave the room I was so terrified of her. Thankfully she didn't follow me to the living room where I spent the rest of the night.

I spoke to my Dad the next day on the phone who was visiting her regularly, and he said that she was not herself, and hadn't been since she'd been admitted. I really didn't know what to do - I told my Dad about the dream (but NOT about seeing her in my room) and he said that it was normal to sedate "difficult" residents, according to them. She suffered a broken hip 2 days later and died shortly after that. To this day I feel a great anguish about not having done anything to help. If I've learned anything from this, it is to take heed of these things. Dreams...visions...sometimes they are more than you think they are.

Raftinggirl, I am so happy you are not dropping the issue. If you want to contact me further, you can email me at jushiburuberi [at] I don't check this all that often. Maybe I can help you in some way. ❤

Thank you Vanillabean - I need all the leverage I can get. I'm still reading, and pursuing the issue. I've worked with the elderly for a long time, and no one deserves to be treated like that. Thank you for all your comments:)

I know how you feel. Before my dad died, I had a dream a few months earlier that resembled him in a sleeping state. And there was sad music. So being the naive little girl I was, I brushed it aside.: (your not the only one

I'm not sure if you are reading this anymore, but I thought I would post this link for you or anyone who might want to read more. The article discusses how these homes are using anti-psychotic drugs to sedate the elderly and it's killing them! Http://

Raftingirl...I am certainly not asking you to be a crusader (unless you want to be) or to do anything you would feel truly uncomfortable with. The only reason I mention all of this Ombudsman stuff is because you don't actually have to do a lot. One call, one short discussion bringing the issue to someone's attention could make a big difference. Sometimes psychic visions are confusing. You are given information but you sometimes don't know what to do with it. That's why I encourage you to contact your local agency... Maybe just so that you can let it go knowing you tried. Maybe in a sense it will "make things right". Perhaps you were given this information not because your grandmother could be saved, but because you might be the only one who could speak up for these patients. I'm sure you could even call anonymously and tell them that this is something that has bothered you for a couple of years and you'd just like to know that someone would look into it. If your grandma was doing better and was more coherent in the hospital, that doesn't sound right to me!

I know what you mean about being scared to ask for forgiveness. Grandma's can be really scary 😆 I have posted 2 stories in case you want to check it out. One was about my grandma. She scared me to death!

Thank you for all your comments. Vanillabean, maybe I should pursue this more, for the sake of others still there. I think that it is very likely that what I saw in my dream was occurring - as my father confessed that when her hip had broken, she'd been transferred to a regular hospital, and suddenly she was coherent and able to talk with him again. I'm actually AFRAID to ask her for forgiveness though...I've never been so terrified in my life than when I saw her in my room!

It's commendable that you did make an effort. Since most of society doesn't believe in our abilities, it is that much more difficult to do the right thing.
I believe that while sleeping our conscious minds go to sleep and our subconscious becomes more dominant. I think our subconscious minds are all connected and therefore we sometimes communicate with loved ones, friends, spirits, or entities around us. Your Grandmother found you the most receptive.
I'm sorry your situation didn't work out better. Sometimes it's just our time to go. When friends or family are dying I usually pray to strengthen them on their journey to the other side. Sometimes it's what's best for them. They need to move on.

Oh no, I'm not sure about Canada, but I am pretty sure they have similar programs or agencies that are also called Ombudsman.

I'm SO SORRY to hear your story. As I was reading it, I guess I didn't realize that your grandmother had already passed because I was hoping there was still time to do something. I know it's not easy to tell yourself that it wasn't your fault, that you shouldn't live with guilt for the rest of your life for this. Try talking to your grandmother, either out loud or in your head. Maybe tell her you are sorry you didn't know what to do or if it was real etc. Ask for her forgiveness.

It's interesting I stumbled upon your post. I recently began volunteer work at local nursing homes. Right now I am training to become a certified long-term-care ombudsman. An ombudsman is sort of like a patient advocate--watching out for elder abuse and neglect and improving the quality of life of people who are in these nursing homes. The Federal government requires all states to have an Office of the Ombudsman. I would really urge you to contact the Ombudsman Program in your grandma's state. I'm not entirely sure what you'd say... But if this type of thing is going on regularly maybe you can do something about it. I suppose, as an Ombudsman, if I got a call from someone saying that their grandmother had passed a year or two ago and that they have been worried for a long time that they believe their grandmother was illegally sedated and that they just wanted to bring it to my attention out of concern for other residents... I would take it seriously. On my next "inspection" I might ask certain questions and talk to visitng family members to see if their mother/grandma/uncle/whomever was doing ok etc. The Ombudsman does not work for the state--they are totally independent and work only to help the resident. Sorry if this was too long of a post, but it really, really scares me to hear of this. 😢 Anyway, give it some thought?
