Around the time of my mother’s passing, on September 19, 2010, I had three dreams about her that offer clues about what can happen just before and after a transition.
Also, about two weeks before she died, my mother told me she had an unusually vivid dream about going home, although she wasn’t sure exactly where home was. I knew then that she was about to transition. The sense of impending homecoming is a common theme just before death.
Dream #1: September 16, 2010, three nights before she passed
I am driving a car with Mom in the backseat. I turn around, and see that she appears younger, about forty. I tell her, “You look so young and pretty, so young and pretty!” Her appearance keeps shifting slightly; sometimes her hair is blond and sometimes light brown.
Interpretation: In the afterlife, your thoughts can have an immediate effect upon the environment as well as your appearance. Because people who transition often feel more youthful than they were when they died, they actually appear youthful to others. This dream about my mother made me wonder if she was practicing her “look” for her arrival in the afterlife.
Dream #2: September 17, 2010, two nights before she passed
Mom is lying in a hospital bed. She is surrounded by nurses who are encouraging her to get up and walk around, but she just looks at them without moving.
Interpretation: In waking life, there was no way my mother was going to get up because she was only semiconscious in the hospital. I may have witnessed some helpers on the other side encouraging her to cross over.
Dream #3: September 26, 2010, one week after she passed
Mom is lying in a bed and I’m standing over her, trying to wake her (now I’m the one trying to get her up). Someone is beside me, perhaps a helper. I tell my mother she has died, so it’s okay to get out of bed and move around because she’s in her astral body. She finally opens her eyes. “Is there anything you need to tell me?” I ask. She doesn’t respond very easily. She seems to be in a semiconscious state like she was in the hospital. “I love you, you know,” I tell her. I want her to tell me she loves me, too.
Interpretation: There is a period of time after death when you review your life. Perhaps Mom was still reviewing her past, or maybe she just needed some extra time to adjust to the transition before “waking up.”
It’s comforting to know she is truly “home,” surrounded by her friends, family, and beloved pets in the afterlife. It will be interesting to see if I have additional visitation dreams about her in the coming months or even years.
