I was wondering if anyone has experienced something similar.
For the past 10 years I will occasionally have dream visitations from deceased loved ones. During these visitations I know the person I’m speaking to is dead. I don’t recall one time that I’ve been a typical dream where I’m just going through the motions.
The first one I had was with both of my dad’s parents. They were meeting my unborn son. I was holding him in a baby carrier, but the visor was up so I couldn’t see him, but they could. They talked about how cute he was and all the normal great grandparent stuff. But they also mentioned how much they wished they could see him grow up.
The next time was a few years later after one of my best friend’s husbands unexpectedly died. I’ve had several dream visits about him. One that stands out though was him asking about his wife. I gave a generic oh she’s fine type of response and he looked me in the eye and said no, how is she really? I went on to tell him that she wasn’t doing great, but that she was strong and had a large support system.
Then there was my mom. With her it’s been slightly different and has possibly changed the way my visitations are? With her, I’m walking around with lots of people and I’m talking to her. Again, like all of these, I know she’s dead. But on these no one can see her. But the one that stands out the most started out differently. I was at a gas station and ran into a woman who looked familiar and it took a few minutes to place her, but it was my mom from when I was younger. It was before she got divorced from her second husband, the man she often referred to as the love of her life, and before she gained a lot of weight and had severe depression. She not only looked healthier, she looked younger, and most importantly she looked happy. Once, I recognized her my immediate thought was that’s how she looks in heaven.
And then last night and what prompted this whole post, was when I dreamed about my uncle who has been dead for 3 years. I asked him how life was treating him then immediately caught my words and said, I mean changed it to “how’s death treating you.” I was with other people and they were asking who I was talking to.
I’m not sure if this is an overactive imagination. I don’t typically have an opinion one way or another on this type of thing so I just don’t know how to view it. Nothing bad is happening and it brings me peace, especially talking with my mom, so I don’t want it to stop. I guess I just want to know if I’m making it up or not. If that makes sense.
