During my segment on Fox 8, New Day Cleveland, the station asked their viewers to submit their dreams via email or Facebook and I interpreted those dreams. There was such a delightful interest in the topic, that we were not able to interpret all the dreams and sometimes not all the dreams in full.
One of the common dream themes that appeared on several occasions was death dreams, and I thought it would be wise to blog about that topic as it touches so many.
There are two main types of death dreams, and each type is very different. The first type, which I will address on this blog, is about dreaming of a loved one whose physical body has literally died.
It is important to understand that dreaming of a deceased loved one is confirmation that that person has in fact gone into the Light. Upon the death of the body, the spirit lives and has a choice of whether or not to go into the Light. The Light exists for all and does not discriminate.
The deceased loved one communicates easiest with his/her loved ones through the vehicle of dreams and acts as a guide to assist their dreaming loved one in life. Frequently after a death, a myriad of emotion engulfs the remaining living relatives, so the first communication is usually about the notion that the deceased loved one is absolutely fine. The grieving loved ones are the ones that tend to suffer due to their loss.
A dreamer, who said his father passed away six years ago, dreamt frequently of his father and doing what seemed to be ordinary activities with his dad. In the underlying tone of the dream, however, was much grief. I felt that his father was trying to sooth his son, letting him know that all was well. It seems the father very much would like his son to get along with the business of living. Acceptance can be very healing.
As a healer, I would ask for strength, courage, and the ability to accept the passing of his father for the dreamer.
Going beyond the scope of acceptance, deceased loved ones enter our dreams for the purpose of encouraging us along our life path. For example, while I embarked on the very darkest days of my life, a deceased cousin entered my dreams on occasion. In the dream, my cousin said, “Flow with the current,” and she showed me a stream. I understood from the dream that it was important to go with the flow rather than fight the current. The wisdom from the dream helped me tremendously – and – she was right!
I would also like to mention that it is possible to dream of a deceased person that you may not have been close to OR may not have liked during their life. For instance, on occasion I dream of my ex-father-in-law, who, during his life, we disliked each other. However, because he is in the Light, he has the benefit of the Light – he is enlightened, and is full of wisdom, kindness, compassion, and assists for my highest good. Therefore, when I dream of him, I listen. I know that he enters my dreams to help me, not to hinder.
Stay tuned for the other main type of death dream…
