Dreams – How do our loved ones communicate?
After someone has crossed over to the other side, they are limited with how much help they can provide. Although they have access to your life charts and what you have planned, you have made a point of ensuring that people know what type of help you would be willing to have while you are here.
Dreams are a great source of connection. When we are sleeping, our minds are more open to the messages that we receive. During our waking life, we are busy, more focused on the task at hand and not always aware of the signs they are trying to share!
If your wanting to connect with a loved one through a dream, before you goto bed, there are things you need to do. While laying down, ask your loved one to come to you in a dream. To share insight with you and ask that they let you remember when you wake up! (That part is important! Not everyone remembers their dreams!)
I dream A LOT. Sometimes I wish I could turn it off, and other times I am thankful to have it. Some are insightful, and some are just plain crazy! I wanted to share two dreams that are specific to people who have crossed over.
My mom passed away unexpectedly. March 8, 2010. This was the day after her own fathers funeral. Yes you read that right. The day after we had his funeral. We decided to cremate my mom’s body (yes this is what she wanted) and I remember a conversation with my mom 3 weeks prior to this. It was over the phone and I thought were having a “what if” type of conversation. One of those that you don’t really take seriously. Talking about when she did pass away, that she wanted to be cremated, and that she told me to just throw her ashes in the garbage. I laughed, I remember telling her that was crazy and I obviously wouldn’t do that. It’s here I draw a blank. I remember her giving me a suggestion on where to spread it, but as I did not take the conversation seriously, it escapes me. (I still have her ashes with me.)
It was within two weeks of her passing. I had been helping her husband to get things sorted, and I had a dream that night. She told me in this dream, if I just had waited a few more days to cremate her, she would have come back. I woke up crying. Logically, of course I know this would have been impossible. Her cremation ended up being just shy of a week after she passed. Interpretation? I believe this to be a further indication that they do not want to be considered “dead”. Although our physical body dies, our soul does not.
Fast forward to June 16, 2017. My mom’s husband after a tough battle with cancer in his throat, was at the point where the drs said he would pass “any day now”. He was no longer conscious at this point because of the drs orders and his safety. This night, Gord came to me in a dream. He was standing inside my closet, and walking back and forth in the closet banging into the sides. Back and forth. I remember looking at him and asking him what he was doing. He replied “I don’t know where to go”. (this still makes me tear up, this “dream” is so vivid). My dream self not realizing that this is a visit rather than a dream says “Don’t eat the people!” (Thank you Walking Dead TV Show!)
I headed to the palliative care unit, June 17, 2017 around 9:30am (my 40th birthday!) and even though he wasn’t conscious told him about my dream with him. Explained where he needed to go, and told him, when he seen my mom to tell her that we loved her and missed her a lot. I told Gord how much we loved him, would miss him and read him the eulogy I had wrote about him. I wanted him to know the nice things that would be said about him. I left at 11:30. A phone call came in at 12:30pm telling me that I needed to head back to the palliative care as it looked like it could be any minute. Gord passed away 1:05pm. I didn’t make it back in time.
Your loved ones will use dreams to pass messages, to provide insight and to connect with you so you can still feel them close by. They want us to always feel loved and supported.
