The only time I recall coming into contact with the deceased is when my grandfather appeared in my dream. It was all black and white, which was unusual for my dreams, and i sat in his lap. It felt completely wonderful being reunited with him, since we were so close when he was alive. I really hope something like that happens again!

My 21 year old brother passed away close to 6 months ago. It was unexpected, sudden, and accidental. He was my idol, I am 3 years younger and looked up to him since I was born. Anything he did I did, and I am really having trouble without him here. I have kept track of all my dreams and I have had 29 dreams with him in them, majority of them are very meaningful and help me. I am struggling with what happens after death and if I will ever see him again, and in some dreams he tell me he is now with "dod" (how he pronounced God as a child), or he is there to smile and laugh with me. One of my most powerful dreams is where I was walking to the house I grew up in, and went downstairs to his room. I was looking through all of his things with my mom and dad, his girlfriend, and a few friends, when suddenly he showed up. He joined in the laughing as we looked at childhood toys, but as he sat next to me I began to cry because I knew he wasn't going to stay with us. He began to cry, and he put his head in his hands and shook his head, because he wasn't supposed to have died. It was such a sad dream and yet I felt like he was really there telling me that it was an accident.. Do you believe that people who have passed on can communicate with us in our dreams?
Last night before I went to bed I asked him to come to me in my dreams more often because that is the only thing giving me any hope. When I fell asleep I dreamt of going to my friends house and seeing him there. I began to cry, because I knew he was still gone, and I kept asking myself if I was imagining it being him or if he was really there. He gave me a hug, and I asked him what he was doing there but he didn't answer. He just smiled at me but I began to cry because again I knew it wouldn't last. He gave me another hug and was crying to. He told me it would be ok and when I told him I missed him he told me he missed me too. We briefly talked but then I had to go and I was uncontrollably crying, as much as I had been the day I found out the news that he had passed.

When my mother died all I would get were nightmares. Mostly I had this reoccuring dream where she'd turn into a demon that only looked like my mother but wasn't so in behavior. In other dreams she would just be mean to me. I'm still having these dreams from time to time. Which frightened me becuase I thought it was a sign she was suffering in Hell

Though there is this one dream I had 2 years ago where she wasn't at all like that. Where I was at school and it was a optional school weekend where if you wanted to you could come to school with your parents and stay there for a weekend(yeah weird I know). In this dream I was half lucid so I vaguely knew I was dreaming and that she hadn't been around for years, and yet in this dream I felt she was never really gone. We talked about many things. When it was sunday evening she said that I will not see her again for a long time.

I found this thread on google, and was so touched by the stories I had to sign up and share mine.

I had a friend commit suicide when I was 16, he was 18. It's been just over five years now and I feel like I've coped with the whole thing well, but it's always upset me that I never dream about him. I don't speak to a lot of our mutual friends much any more so sometimes I get scared I'm starting feel like I'm loosing my memories of him.

Anyway, onto the dreaming - I think I've only dreamt about him three or four times, but in every dream, he was always more of a presence. We knew he was around but I never saw him or spoke to him, we could have been looking for him, or other times it was his funeral - we were there but never saw him.

BUT - last week I dreamt of him clearly for the first time. I was having my usual crazy dreams, relating to work and friends in a bizarre yet all very clear way. I was standing on a stage at a venue I had been working at that day. I looked over toward the stairs and he walked up them. He was so clear and looked exactly as the last time I saw him, everything down to his clothes, beanie, haircut and the way he walked. I ran over to him and jumped on him and threw my arms around him, hugging him and I wouldn't let go. I started shrieking, and squealing with excitement "How are you here?! You're meant to be dead?!" and he just kept walking up the stairs still hugging me (I wasn't letting go for love nor money) and he just looked at me and said in such a happy tone, like I was completely insane to have ever questioned him "What are you talking about? I've been here the whole time..." I woke up straight after that, with the most incredible sense of comfort and happiness. I started crying, overwhelmed by sadness and at the same time that incredible feeling of relief.

I don't know if it were him or his spirit coming to me in my dreams, or if it were just my own mind creating the new memories to comfort me. I don't really mind either way, it was such a comforting and amazing feeling. I hope it happens for me more often, and with other relatives and friends. And I hope that others that have experienced such loss can have their own dreams and experiences like mine, to help them get through their difficult times.

That sleep paralysis is horrible. You get the feeling that a horrible entity is creeping up on your bed (e.g The Exorcist girl) and you can't scream out or do anything. One of the worst experiences you can have.

There have been a large number of accounts of people seeing recently deceased relatives in their dreams or visiting them from their bedsides at precisely the time of death, and during these encounters they often describe sensations of not being able to move like in sleep paralysis.

I had a dream about my Father. He was asking me if I lived in a safe neighborhood. He looked very concerned and was asking me questions about my living quarters. He has been dead since 1995. I rarely dream about him. The dream did make sense to me. If he was alive today he would have such a concern like the one in the dream. I have moved to another neighborhood then when he was alive. I found the dream interesting.

Hello, can someone please take time to read this.
I posted about my dreams about my dead loved ones maybe a little over half a year ago.
It was before i knew about lucid dreams. Since i dream about my dead family normally, how intense would a lucid dream be?


Note: I'm 15 years old, my grandparents raised me till they died, i was 13. A year after, my father died. Then his brother, which is my uncle.
Now, this is really tragic. But i'm also so fascinated that they are in my dreams still.

Here are my memories of dreams:
When i'm sad and miss them, my dreams take place at their house. Or in a forest. I got lost and started crying.
When i'm happy, i dream about them too. But usually at a ocean and my dreams are very bright and happy.
I would have dreams that they were alive again. And i would go look at my old house on the lake, it was all so pretty. And all my clothes and valuables. My grandmother would take me shopping, and talk to me like she used to. It meant so much to me, even in my dreams. My grandpa would die different ways, and he would be really pale and old looking in one dream. He was in some nursing home or hospital. There was old ugly looking people, (enough to frighten me in a bad way) not just old people or sick people.

Before my grandpa died, he would tell me 'Remember the good happy times, okay?' I had another dream and he told me that. And then he told me that he was always in my heart.

My grandma died at age 60 caused by a heart attack. She died on June 11th '08
My grandpa died at age 58 caused by fail of cancer surgery. He died on July 11th '08 a month after.
My father died at age 39 caused by either OD or fail of drug rehab recovery. On October 9th, '09
My uncle isn't ever in my dreams, only once. But i can't remember, so maybe his reason and date of death is irrelevant.

I want to try lucid dreams because i want to know what these dreams mean.
Can someone help me out?

HI Everyone:

I have always had dreams in which deceased friends and relatives show up. I am always delighted to see them and immeadiately ask them why they are here because they are supposed to be dead. They never answer my question but just start to join me in whatever I am doing in the dream when they appear.

I have seen my dad so many times in the dreams, he passed away 20 years ago. I have had dreams with my father in law who twice has given me a big hug and it just felt so good. He passed away about 5 years ago.

I have seen my younger sister who passed away 8 years ago in my dreams. In one of the dreams, I told her to go away because she was bugging me as younger sisters do in real life. When I woke up, I thought to myself that I should never have asked her to leave because the time she was spending with me was extra precious time that a lot of people do not get.

I recently told my sisters and mom about my dreams, they live in another state. Both were shocked because they do not have dreams with deceased people. When I told my mother in law about getting a hug from her deceased husband, she was also shocked and even a little jealous.

So my question is, do you have dreams with your deceased love ones? Who were they and please describe a few if you can.
I too have dreams of deceased loved ones and friends who've crossed over. Just the other night, infact, my best friend whom recently died showed up in a dream. She didn't interact with me, per se', she just watched and joined in with whatever was happening in the dream after she showed up. In other words, she was always in the picture, in the background. I've also dreamt about my father and paternal grandmother. I believe that these deceased people are visiting me when they appear in my dreams.

Yes. That's the only way I allow them to visit with me actually. I've seen a couple of them in real life, both female, right after the death, but I much prefer a dream visit and have made that known. It's much easier to deal with than seeing a spirit in real life. I do dream about my dead family members, a lot actually. But I also smell the two ladies around too. They both used extremely identifiable and not very common scents in life. It's pretty hard to miss when they are around actually.

This past few days , i would dream about my deceased aunt .Who died last May of this year. Well , dreams were not scary. Most of the time , in my dream , my aunt acts like a live person. However whenever i talk to her she would not answer back. Whenever i dream about her , i tend to forget that she's alive. Last dream that i could remember was that , I was discussing to my aunt about how willingi am to help her in paying her Tax and Insurances. Last night , she disappeared to my dream being alive , but she was sick . The image that i remembered of her last night was like the the image of her when she was inside the coffin.But i'm not afraid or what.   <_<  i wonder what that means..

Interpretation of spirit world images often are off. Spirits don't really look like people, images are just projections interpretations of a higher reality that is not decipherable for human minds at this point. Chances are the upside down thing was simply a misinterpretation by you...... Or possibly a symbol, like he is in a higher place now and must hang down to visit. or  "don't worry, even though he is gone, he is still hanging around" that sort of thing. Only you have the relevancy to give it meaning.

I'm sorry for your loss, I have shared it.
Good luck.

tnx fot the answer, but i forgot to mention it didn't look like him, it was actually his silhouette, surrounded by this gold-red glow... anyway, weeks after i posted my dream, i went and bought a michael newton book and to my suprise THE COVER WAS EXACTLY LIKE MY FATHER IN MY DREAM!

http://www.google.co...=1t:429,r:0,s:0


I guess that meant i should take this book seriously.
but even after i got the meaning behind the dream i'm still positive, that was really my father i was talking to.

I have had many many dreams over the years of deceased people. My maternal Grandmother is probably my most frequent dream visitor. I have dreamt of my paternal Grandfather several times, and I remember at least one dream about my paternal Great Grandfather. My other Grandparents passed on before i was born. I have also had dreams of friends who have passed as well as casual aquaintances. When someone I know dies, I just kind of expect to have a visit from them in a dream.

My neighbor has the same first name as I do. Several years ago she was dating a guy who died. Shortly after, he visited me in a dream. I always kind of thought maybe he just floated into the wrong house:) I didn't know him well.

My daughter was killed a couple years ago. After her death, I rarely dreamed other than a nightmare here and there until I  received my second degree Reiki a few weeks ago . Since then, my dreams have started again. I have only had one dream of my daughter, and that was shortly after her death. In that dream, at first I didn't recognize her. I actually walked right past her. I think she was trying to let me know that she was with me even though I couldnt' see her.

My Granddaughter dreams of her Mother often. Many mornings she awakes and tells me she has dreamed about Mommy:) I am always happy to hear that. Sometimes she also tells me that she had a dream about her Daddy (also deceased). Through an Angel Communicator, my daughter has told me that she will always visit her children in the astral plane. Perhaps one day, she will start visiting me as well.

My friend whom was recently brutally murdered in his own home showed up in my dream the other night. He was very quiet, yet was telling me who murdered him. Unfortuneately, no one will believe me if I told them what he told me in that dream. I wonder if it was real? Or just things I've been thinking about concerning his death?

I just had my first visit from a friend that I lost about a year ago. It was so real that I have been crying for about 2 hours now. I feel like he was just letting me know he is ok in the after life. It was great he had me craking up like always. He was such a funny person to be around. Miss you R.I.P Ray.
