Last night you had a vivid dream of your loved one who recently passed away and it seems like they were trying to contact you. Is it possible that someone who passed away can really talk to you through your dreams?
When you are having a dream you reach subconscious and unconscious parts of your brain. You have a contact with all the emotions you have previously experienced and were stored in the memory. Sometimes that’s exactly what a dream is, a memory of the loved one who passed away.
But sometimes a dream can mean that the loved one has visited you or wants to contact you. In this article you will read about other possible ways that a loved one who recently passed away is trying to contact you.
Some people consider visitation dreams to be a healthy part of the grieving process. The dreamer remembers the person who has died and for a moment they don’t feel the pain and grief over their loss. In that moment they feel the presence of their family member or friend in that dream and they get the feeling as if they didn’t really leave.
If you have recurring dreams of a loved one who died, here are 7 indicators that they are trying to make contact with you:
YOU FEEL THAT SOMEBODY WATCHES YOU WHEN YOU WAKE UP
It is believed that after our loved ones leave, they are here on Earth – watching over us. Sometimes when we wake up from a dream we have a feeling as if someone is in the room. The truth is, there is someone and that someone is your deceased loved one.
Even though when we feel that we are being watched can be really disturbing, in this case it probably makes you feel safe.
VIVID DREAM OF MEMORIES WITH YOUR LOVED ONE
It is normal to have vivid memories of the deceased loved one when you are awake. However, when you have memories of your loved one in your dreams can signify that they are trying to contact you. This is especially true if your loved one reminds you of some memory with that you’ve forgotten. They also may send you a message through that memory, so you should pay attention to details in your dream.
YOUR LOVED ONE SEEMS STRANGE IN YOUR DREAMS
If your loved one appears in your dreams but it seems like something is wrong with them, (they are not as they were in the past) it means that they want to send you some warning. Try to recall all the clues from your dreams that your loved one is trying to give. They may want to pull you out from a situation that might harm you or warn you that there will be some unpleasant changes in your life.
YOU HAVE A SENSE OF PEACEFUL WELL-BEING AFTER YOU WAKE UP
It’s such a wonderful feeling when you wake up and feel well rested and calmed. It rarely happens in this period, but if your loved one was concerned about your health and well-being, they probably tried to help you by sending you peaceful sleep.
A recent research has discovered that people who had close encounters with the deceased loved ones helped them to deal with grieving easily. These people also managed to deal with the loss and also to continue functioning with their daily life. It gives us some comfort when we know that there is life beyond death and that our loved ones are watching and helping us.
YOU DON’T NOW IF IT WAS A DREAM OR REALITY
When the deceased loved one visits us in a dream, they make it feel real, like they were really there. These dreams can be extremely realistic that you can really smell, hear or feel the loved one.
These vivid dreams sometimes are emotionally intense. You will awaken right after your dream and feel the grief like it’s even stronger than before. This doesn’t mean that your loved one wanted to harm you, but they just wanted to be close to you again.
YOU NOTICE THAT YOU LOVED ONE SEEMS HEALTHIER AND HAPPIER THAN THEY WERE WHEN THEY PASSED
Your deceased loved one will seem younger, healthy and lively, just like you would like to see them. If so, they are trying to tell you that they didn’t suffer when they passed and now they can appear happy and satisfied before you.
YOUR DECEASED LOVED ONE LETS YOU KNOW THAT THEY ARE FINE AND STILL WITH YOU
You can sometimes hear your loved one speaking in your dreams. You can hear their voice or just understand what they want to tell you. Very often they know that you are concerned about where they are in the moment, so they will appear in your dreams to let you know that they are fine and everything is okay where they are now.
