Papa Can You Hear Me?

31841_I awoke the yesterday morning and it’s been a race for me to write what happened because I must tell you that I dreamt of my Dad last night.  In fact, my dream was so very real that I am still reeling this morning.  I dreamt that the phone rang and when I answered it, it was my Dad.  And at first I thought my sister had found a recording of a message that my Dad had left, but it wasn’t.  It was my Dad talking to me, calling me.  And I was so overwhelmed that at first, once I realized it, I was quiet.  But then, we began to talk.  It was his voice, strong and clear, not the voice that is left on my answering machine which is raspy and weakened as it was when he was in the hospital.  It was the voice of my Dad that I remember.

And you know why he called me?  He wanted me to know that my tests came back normal and he was so happy that they had.  And as I sit here weeping while my fingers try to keep up with the words that I want to share with you, I want to you know that I truly, in my heart, feel like he called me in my dream.  I can’t explain it nor will I try.  It matters not to me if you believe that I believe that he really called me.  But he did.  I am softened by his words, I am feeling peaceful.  I am grateful.

Has this ever happened to you with a loved ones who has passed away?

Thanks for letting me share.

Shine On!


P.S.  Fact is, my tests did come back normal! 🙂

P.P.S.  I wrote this post the other day, but had to let it marinate for a few days.

  1. That is a wonderful feeling, hearing from your loved ones. . .And great news about your tests. I do believe that God makes his presence known in many different ways – including messages from those who have passed before us. Keep the faith!

  2. Definitely. My mom had duodenal cancer and we both fought hard to keep it at bay. My dad had passed years before. One night I dreamt I saw him sitting next to a pretty white building (reminded me of a meeting house or cottage) and he was sitting on a bench still and silent. I was so excited and kept telling people that’s my dad look he is right there. No one really payed much attention to me. I sat down beside him and he told me with thoughts and feelings that everything was OK. Mom would be OK but I needed to tell her this. I needed to tell her I would be OK and if she wanted to go dad was there waiting. Within the month she was gone and I know she is OK. When it is important they always get the message through.
    What makes this important is the vivid detail your vision or dream was, as mine. The memory of the dream is as fresh today as it was almost 8 years ago.

  3. I have always heard that it’s easiest for those to have passed to reach us in out dreams, when the conscious mind that says it can’t happen is asleep . What a wonderful connection!

  4. Yes it surely has. I dream of my Papa a lot. I used to call my dad Pa. I love it when that happens because you wake up feeling like you actually experienced their presence. I believe those are little gifts from God. I’m so glad you had that dream! Blessings to you sweet friend!:)

      • I dreamed I saw my Pa at the golf course and he said to me, “Oh there you are hurry up I want to show you something.” He took off up the fairway and I had to run to keep up with him. I was worried he would get lost cause when he passed he had Alzheimer’s. I said, “Pa wait up you are going to fast.” He yelled back hey call me Dan they don’t know me here by that name.” I thought it was funny but I ran to catch up and he jumped across this little creek and headed up the hill and I hurried to catch him but when I got to the creek the bridge was broken and I could not get to him. I saw him disappear in the clouds and panicked. I turned and there were these two ladies sitting on a bench and I said, Have you seen Pa, and they said yes dear he went up there. Then I woke up but I felt like my Pa was there or something odd. I smelled his smell. My Pa had this smell of Old Spice and the woods so I wrote my dream down and told my sister and brother. It made my sister cry because she has been asking God for dreams of our Pa and then she asked about what he wore and I was able to recount each piece of clothing and his hair was blonde like mine and curlie and he had on green. Each time I think of that dream like right now I am filled with such a love it brings tears to my eyes. Thank you for sharing this. It made me think of my Pa and my dream which always make me feel better and I’m not missing him as much! You are awesome sweet friend! Awesome share! I loved it made my day!

      • Oh my dear Michelle Marie, it is you who has made my day ~ what a lovely way for you and for your sister to have connected with your Pa. I called mine Dad, but somehow the title came out as Pa. I guess it was for you! xo

  5. I share your tears. How beautiful, and I believe he did call you! I have had so many experiences with my angel, my first husband, who died in 1999. I believe they are watching over us and sending us so many messages. I find it gives me strength when I need it most. God bless!

  6. I’m so glad you shared such a wonderful story. There is no doubt in my mind that our loved ones watch over us with great love after they pass. Their egos are no longer cluttering their intentions so their clarity and compassion is full on! I guess the only problem isn’t them wanting to connect, but our being open enough to “receive” the messages. I’m so happy you were able to do that, and happier still that you shared it so others might open up as well!

  7. It is serendipity that your blog post was one of the first things I clicked on and read today. Because last night I stayed up very late reading/studying the first two chapters of The Gospel of Matthew. I read where an angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream to tell him not to be afraid to take Mary as his wife. Then I read that God warned the Magi (in a dream) not to go back to Herod. Then an angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream and told him to take Mary and Jesus to Egypt because Herod would be looking for the child to kill him. And then again, it says an angel of the Lord appeared in a dream to Joseph in Egypt and said, “Get up, take the child and his mother, and go back to the land of Israel, because those who tried to kill the child are dead.” It says Joseph was then given more instructions (again, in a dream), so he went to the province of Galilee and made his home in town called Nazareth. Five very significant dreams!!

    The study guide I am perusing had this to say about dreams in the Bible:

    “In the Ancient Near Eastern world, dreams had great significance. In some cases, they provided information about the future and were used to show the dreamer the right decision to make…. God used dreams as a vehicle of revelation in the birth and early days of Jesus.”

    I laid in bed last night and absolutely could not sleep for thinking about that! Then I read your post today. Wow!

    Sorry this is so long but I wanted to share. I am so happy your tests came back normal (!) and so happy you heard from your dad.

    • Thank you so much for sharing Gail! I love that we had such synchronicity and that you connected with me today. God does work in mysterious ways and I believe your post was a special reminder that my visit was real. So I thank you from my heart. xo

  8. I believe he contacted you. Your post made me smile.
    I have dreamed of my father several times since he died ten years ago, and it gave me great comfort. In the dreams he was younger and very healthy, and happy, and to me it seemed he was sending me a message that he was in a better place. I have dreamed about my mom too since she died last fall, but in the dreams she is still suffering from varying stages of Alzheimers. I hope some night I will dream of her being happy and healthy like Dad.

  9. I often feel my dad is with me even though he died 27 years ago age 56.. Yes cancer.. A few days before he died he was quite agitated and then he became calm and said his mum was there waiting at the foot of the bed.. She had died years before.. His mum had come to take him to heaven peacefully.. I will never forget this and truly believe that our family is still there like our Angel I times of trouble.. So I am sure your dad is with you..

  10. That is wonderful news that your tests came back normal, and it is amazing that your Dad was able to phone you in your dream to tell you. A few years ago, my uncle passed away. I was a teenager, and he was the first person in my family that I had lost. I was so sad, and really also hoping he was ok, wherever he was. I also had a dream that he phoned me, to tell me he was fine. The next night, I had another dream, of seeing an old lady, I knew from my community, telling me that my uncle has passed on but was fine. I woke up from that dream, wondering why she had been the one to tell me this, and then I suddenly remembered she had passed away six months earlier. It was very strange, but I really do think our loved ones can still contact us, especially through dreams. Thank you for sharing your beautiful experience and I am glad that you were able to connect with your father in this way. ❤

  11. Oh dear Yvonne-
    This is wonderful! I have had several visits from family members in Heaven. Always bittersweet. Experiences like this proves to me that there is life after death. Our loved ones always looking out for us & still trying to help us & communicate with us as they can.
    Bendiciones y Abrazos

  12. Thank you for sharing this wonderful experience, Misifusa. I have no doubt that love transcends mere human life. I’m delighted that you received such a wonderful gift and visit.

  13. First I am happy to hear your tests came back normal – and second yes I believe – God is love and He created love so the love we have for those who remain in our hearts never leave us and He gives us the gift of hearing them and feeling their presence when we need them the most. I thank God daily for the presence of my DH in my life. It is a wonderful gift to hold on to of love that will never die.
