What Happens when someone dies in their sleep?

As the title states, I'm curious as to what happens when someone dies in their sleep. People say that at some point everyone makes it to the afterlife and crosses over eventually, even if it takes centuries in Earth Time.

If you're a medium or have knowledge of this subject I would love to hear your answer/insight.

Does the aforementioned person 'wake up' immediately, or do they stay in a sleep like state for a little while. Does their own soul or spirit or guides come wake them up or what?

Thanks in advance

If someone passes in their sleep they could awaken in a confused state,but it does not last very long. it is a nice way to go for the person. but a bit of a shock for the family. if they were ill when they passed they would go to a place of Healing just like a hospital here.

In most cases, yes the guide or deity that person believes in does come to get them, and the healing process begin, for they can move on.
Hold fast to dreams
For if dreams die
Life is a broken-winged bird
That cannot fly.
Hold fast to dreams
For when dreams go
Life is a barren field
Frozen with snow

I know an Alzheimer's man that didn't recognize his grown kids for years!
He died in his sleep....while his grandson, in his 20s, was in town for the Wake, Catholic 'viewing'..
in the kid's hotel room the Grandad knocked something over...then
righted it while the kid was in the bathroom, the kid dropped his mouth.
The grandad appeared to him with a flannel shirt on, smiling , snapping his fingers saying,
''Gotcha!" And disappeared.

So who knows...each person has their individual exp immediately crossing over, I guess!!!
"Prepare yourself for the coming astral journey of death
by riding daily in a balloon of divine perception.
Through delusion you are perceiving yourself as a bundle of flesh and bones...
Meditate unceasingly, that you quickly behold yourself as the Infinite Essence"

~Lahiri Mahasaya, the Guru of Yogananda's Guru

I have no scientific evidence for anything I say.

I have been at the bedside were one's have passed in their sleep. Its a peaceful way to go if your prepared that your time is there to go. Your prepared to simply let go and let be.

Its more a struggle at times when you die without any expectations of that event coming to you. It is rare but there are times when you linger for a bit Earth Bound and seek some understandings. This is where natural Mediums come into play without a thought if we are touched by someone that needs crossing we simply do it.

For each person its a different experience in passing and I am assured that we are never left alone when this happens....but too we hold some of that free will in us NOT to go over. That last bit of brain activity maybe that is there that holds us back.

The worst I feel is going partly over and being sent back, at times your sent back into the body that really needs to cross over.

If the crow has chosen you as your spirit or totem animal, it supports you in developing the power of sight, transformation, and connection with life’s magic.

According old philosophies no matter when and how one dies, but only it depends only on his mind. The last thoughts before death.
For this reason many meditations mystics, yogis and similar that their next life be according to their wishes.

You will wake up in the spirit world. The most natural way to die is when you are old and asleep and silver cord detaches by itself.
