Real Psychic Experiences

A Goodbye? Or A Coincidence?


I had a dream a few nights ago that I believe my deceased grandfather came to visit me in to say goodbye.

I remember the ending vividly, this also happens to be the part where my grandfather interacted with me. It was pitch black out, I don't even recall there being a moon, that's how dark it was, but it was pouring rain and my grandfather (whom I did not know was deceased until later when I woke up) gave me a hug and said he must leave, as he climbed into a black truck I,for some reason I did not know, Began to hysterically cry and I didn't know why but I couldn't control it. He closed the door and rolled down his window telling me these exact words that keep replaying in my mind, "take care of your heart." Β he leaned out of the vehicle window, kissed my forehead, backed out of the parking space and drove off slowly. I fell to my knees and hysterically started to cry again, the feeling that came over me was... Well I can't seem to describe it... Like my heart broke for the first time... Only it seemed like a heavy feeling as well and insanely real.

Well, not long after I woke up and realized I was just dreaming, but I couldn't help but still feel weird. I lied in bed for about 10 minutes pondering the meaning of my dream, after all it seemed random that that my grandfather was in my dream since I have never dreamt of him in such a sad setting before and I hadn't talked to him in just over a month or so, so it wasn't like he was on my mind in such a way that I would dream of him. After lying there thinking I leaned over and grabbed my cell phone off the night stand to check my messages, I saw that my grandmother had left me messages.

The first message I heard made my blood go cold. She said that my grandfather had died sometime that night and to call her back asap. This came to a surprise because his death was sudden and unexpected. So I called her, still a bit speechless, and I started asking questions like when he died, she replied in his sleep sometime that night/morning, I asked how he died, she said they believe it was his HEART... That right there just made my eyes fill with tears and a lump in my throat.

Could he have been visiting me for one last time? I just don't's not like I knew of his death before the dream, because then that would make some sense to me. It's the fact that I had the dream and then found out he passed away... Does anyone have some sort of explanation of this? I'm open to hear all thoughts on it.

This is also not the first time something like this has happened to me. I have deja vu quite often, I would say more so than an average person does, but I have dreamt of someone right before finding out they passed. It happened once before with my uncle, but I brushed it off as a coincidence. Since this is now the second time I'm curious if it's more than a coincidence.

My grandfather died a couple of years before, so I always felt attached I had a dream like this and he was saying goodbye to and when I woke it felt so real like he was there I then just starting sobbing it was Like he wad there with me I just felt that he was. And I knew he came in my dreams and was saying his farewell maybe that's what your grandfather was doing to just saying goodbye. Sometimes I dream of him but now it's not that feeling like he was there. But the night he did die I saw his hand on my shoulder comforting me, I think it's there way of showing us they will be ok:)

I really think this is great news, its a big problem when they cannot say goodbye, when they are attached it can be dangerous for us, but he really is ready to transition this is beautiful. You should cook him his fav meal and leave it for him to give him strength on his journey. 😁

I believe he was saying goodbye to you. A similar thing happened to me, when I dreamt a strange dream about my grandfather leaving and my being so upset. The next day I discovered he had passed away. When a loved one dies, I believe they try to connect with a family member to say goodbye. I believe this is what's happened in your case. No, I don't think it's just a big coincidence. Take care:)

I am very sorry for your loss, and I am glad you heard from him one last time. Spirits communicate with us alot, and understanding them doesn't mean you're clairavoyant or can predict things. I'm not saying you're not, but this is a spirit talking to you, not foreseeing an event or actively trying to contact a spirit. And yes, everyone has deja vu at some point or another, but having it a lot points toward you being adept at feeling out your past and yourself. I suggest meditating to see what you come up with.

Hello Krista. Let me say first that I am sorry for your loss. I really believe that your grandfather came to you to say goodbye. I too have had experiences like this in the past. The only difference is, I have never heard sound or spoke to the people in my dreams, I would only see them in different places. When I woke up in the morning, I already knew or felt there was something wrong.

Krista this is a real difficult time right now and there are certainly no clear cut answers to what you experienced. It's only my opinion when I say you may have an ability that your just becoming aware of since it's not the first time. However, I feel the most important thing right now is to deal with your feelings and grandfather's passing first. My thoughts are with you and your family.

Thank you for the response.
I believe he was giving me one last message too. It's almost comforting to know now, When At first it kind of freaked me out.

Hi Krista, I believe that sometimes when a loved one passes away they want to make one last connection to someone or pass on a message before they cross over. I think your grandfather wanted to say good-bye and tell you to take care of yourself before he crossed over. I think we are a lot alike because I also dream of the dead but in my case I already know they have passed on and they come to tell me they are ok, or ask me to keep an eye out on someone. When my grandfather passed away he came to me in a dream and told me he was sorry for leaving so soon and there was so much he wanted to tell me, but things don't always turn out the way we want. I will never forget that message. I carry that with me always. As you will always carry the message your grandfather gave to you. 😊
