Speaking with my deceased aunt/u/certifiedpharb

For context, I live in my great aunt's old house. It used to be an apartment but when the man downstairs passed away (in the hospital, not in the house) we turned it into a single family home. Anyways, I was very close with my aunt Julia who was very old when I was born. Even though she was old she would read to me, color with me, play with me, and held me- even broke her hip holding me knowing that I was getting too big, but she loved me so much that she kept trying. I spent every day at my grandma's house with her while my parents worked, and one day while I was in bed with her holding me, she passed away. Many family members were also in the room, and when I realized that she passed I felt this sense of pure comfort and peace come over me. My grandma took me out of the bed and explained what happened, and I apparently smiled and said that I knew. I was about two and a half when this happened. After that, I kept telling my family that she sat in my room while I slept; she told me that she was there to protect me. Everybody thought that I was just processing death the best I could as a child, but I was never really upset with the fact that she died while she was holding me because even as as kid I understood that she went peacefully and there was nothing to be scared of. My family was religious so at the time I was happy that she went to heaven. Of course, my parents and grandparents sat me down and had conversations about it, and I took it well. Every morning when I woke up I would tell my parents that she was there watching me sleep and it started to freak them out, so they took me to a doctor to talk about my feelings and what I was "imagining." A couple days after the appointment, I was playing in my room and saw my aunt and started talking to her while we played together. My mom walked in and asked me who I was talking to, and I pointed and said Auntie Julia. My mom looked horrified and picked me up and took me out of my room and sat me on the couch and turned on the TV so she could make a phone call. I heard her on the phone with my grandma in the other room telling her that she walked in on me pointing to and talking to my aunt, and when she walked in it smelled like her perfume that she used to wear before I was even born. When she came back out to the living room she was teary eyed and asked if I was scared and I said no, and she told me that one of the last conversations she had with her, my aunt told her that she would forever be there for me and do whatever she could to make me feel safe. Eventually I stopped seeing her and talking to her but I can still physically feel her presence around me mostly when i'm sad or going through rough times with my mental health. I still remember all of the times she visited me so vividly and i've talked to many therapists about it and they don't really have an answer. I'm not religious anymore so I haven't turned to anybody in a church to seek out an explanation but it's really comforting to know that I meant so much to her and that her energy is always with me.
