Lisa Niemi Swayze recounted a profound dream she experienced featuring her late spouse, actor Patrick Swayze, which brought her a sense of serenity.

The 67-year-old former dancer shared that she sensed the departed "Dirty Dancing" icon bestowed his approval upon her decision to marry again, following the proposal from her current husband, Albert DePrisco.

Initially, Niemi Swayze hesitated to accept the proposal due to feeling as though she was "already married" in her heart.

"I still hold affection for Patrick," she expressed during the April 7 installment of the "Amy and T.J. Podcast." "I even questioned Albert, saying, 'Does it concern you that I still carry feelings for Patrick?' He responded, 'No, darling. I understand your love for him, and I believe you can love me too. I am here to love you in the present.'"

As she prepared for her upcoming wedding, she detailed a dream where she sensed the actor had "returned to life."

"In this courtyard," she commenced, elucidating, "Whenever I encounter him in my dreams, he never utters a word, yet I comprehend his message as I've had numerous dreams about him."

"He approached me, enveloping me in his embrace, and I found myself saying, 'I can't proceed with marrying Albert,'" she recounted, noting her initial joy at her husband's reappearance. "And I exclaimed, 'Oh my, I can't marry Albert now that you've returned. Thank goodness you're back.' He simply gazed at me. His unspoken words conveyed to me, 'No, I understand your love for me. This is unrelated.'"

Niemi Swayze conveyed that her dream seemed to convey "he was reassuring me that our feelings for each other remained unchanged in our relationship. It felt like receiving a blessing."

She described it as "a delightful dream."

The couple remained married from 1975 until Swayze's passing in 2009. The actor succumbed to pancreatic cancer at 57.

Reflecting on enduring Swayze's battle with cancer and discovering love once more, Niemi Swayze remarked, "It truly emphasizes what matters most in life. And that love, our love, was the most significant of all."

She humorously added, "It almost sounds like I'm reciting the final line from 'Ghost' now," alluding to Swayze's 1990 film with Demi Moore, where he portrays a ghost.

Niemi Swayze and DePrisco eventually tied the knot in 2014, following a year and a half of courtship. Earlier in their discussion, she delved into her journey of falling for her current spouse.

"I didn't recognize the depth of my loneliness until much later," she disclosed. "I've always been resilient. I can handle it. I convinced myself that what I was feeling wasn't loneliness but rather grief. It was truly wonderful when Albert entered my life."

Despite this, she emphasized that she could never "erase Patrick from my heart."

"Patrick remains a part of me; our connection endures. He may not be physically present, but I sense his presence every day," she revealed.

What made DePrisco remarkable was that her affection for him didn't diminish her love for her late husband.

"I genuinely fell for Albert," she expressed. "It was intriguing to observe how my love for Patrick remained unaffected."

She further elaborated, "Losing a loved one doesn't mean you cease to love."

Niemi Swayze addressed the ongoing tribute to her late husband during an interview with in April 2023.

"His presence lingers in my thoughts. He offers his perspective on my actions. When I need encouragement or face challenges, I can consult him in my mind, and I hear his familiar voice, often urging me to 'get real,'" she shared. "The absence of someone doesn't terminate the connection. We shared 34 years together, and that bond will forever be a part of my existence and identity."
