After-Death Communication (ADC) Experiences

Personal Accounts - Sensing a Presence: Sentient ADCs

Jeffrey, age 36, is a teacher and freelance writer in California. His grandmother contacted him just a few hours after she died of congestive heart failure:

I was sitting in my living room looking at a picture that was always my grandmother’s favorite. It’s The Good Shepherd, where Jesus is holding a lamb.

Suddenly, there was a real feeling of softness – an extreme feeling of peace that was unexplainable. I felt my grandmother was in the room. It was a very natural, warm feeling that she was present.

I could feel her spirit, as if she was reassuring me that she was happy and at peace. It was almost like she was saying good-bye one last time before going on.

This lasted about twenty minutes and then the peace gently faded. It was a comfort and reassurance that Grandma was okay.


Eleanor is a psychotherapist in Washington, D.C. She had a series of visits from her father after he died of a heart attack when she was a senior in high school:

My father was a very kind, sensitive, and intelligent man. I loved him very much. But he suffered a lot of pain in his life.

For some years after he passed away, I would become aware of his presence. I felt the depth of his presence, the whole sense of him. It was the feeling of the way he was when he was alive and well. The feeling of him was very distinct, very warm, and very supportive.

My father was encouraging me to go on with my life and not to be upset with his death.
