Although my experience was a dream....I feel like I know what you are saying. A week after my grandmother died (I was VERY close to her) she came to me in a dream and told me the 'secrets of the Universe'....I awoke with tears of joy and and absolutely exhilarating feeling vibrating through my being from what she said - which was that ALL was Good. The Past, the Future, Life, Death...ALL of it was Good.
It was an amazing feeling...
I'm with ya'!
*the dream went on and she told me that, yes, she still 'existed' - because I was wondering how she was able to tell me these things...*
