The man from La Vendee who dreamed of his father dying
Type of Spiritual Experience
I think this is communication between him and someone present at the death who is witnessing the scene and thus grief stricken
A description of the experience
Death and its Mystery, At the Moment of Death; Manifestations and Apparitions of the Dying – Camille Flammarion
From a correspondent from La Vendee
During the night of January 30th-31st I dreamed that I arrived at the home of my parents, in Moutiers; I believed them absolutely well. But in the drawing room I saw a throng bent over an improvised bed; I pushed my way past the people about the bed and saw my father, dead, stretched out on a mattress placed upon boards.
I sobbed and this awoke my wife. She asked me what was the matter.
‘It’s nothing’ I answered. ‘It was an absurd dream, I thought Father was dead’.
The next day I learned that my father had felt unwell the previous night at eleven o’clock and that his condition had grown worse so rapidly that he had died at half past 5 o’clock in the morning, at exactly the moment when I had the sinister nightmare; they had laid him on a bed like the one I had seen in my dream and in the same drawing room.
