I understand that when someone dies, because they are energy, and energy never dies, that they rejoin the nonphysical.
At work, we recently learned of the passing of a former coworker. This wonderful, caring and compassionate young man left for the non physical around midnight Sunday morning, passing due to complications from pneumonia. The doctors worked for two hours before finally pronouncing him "dead". I have not seen this gentleman in months, he moved about 11 hours drive from here, only keeping in touch via "Facebook". We were friendly while working together, but as close as he was with others who spoke with him on a regular basis after he left. Anyway, Saturday night, when I went to bed, about 11, I was having problems falling asleep, developing a cough that would not stop until about midnight. After falling asleep, I had a dream that someone died, (I had no knowledge of just how sick he was), but I couldn't remember who. It bothered me all day, that I couldn't put my finger on it. Fast forward many hours, and I am taking my sister to dinner, which happened to be a restaurant that he and I and a bunch of people went to a party and had a wonderful time. The phone call came as I was pulling into the parking lot of this restaurant, telling me that he had passed earlier that morning.
So, my question is about the dream. What causes this type of dream, or connection? Is it because I am intune with my own Source and the non physical, that as soon as someone I care about joins the nonphysical, I am sensitive to it. This is not the first time I have had these "premonitions". They do not happen often, and they are not always about death. I once had a dream about a friend in the emergency room and then next day I found out that he had been in the emergency room the day before.
Insight is greatly appreciated.
