This dream occurred two weeks to the day after my friend passed away: I dreamed I was in a room with my friend and apologizing to him for the way our relationship ended. He said he was okay and that he understood. He said everything was all right, and he was all right. He also told me he loved me, and I replied that I loved him and missed him so much. He replied that it was okay, and he was okay… Then I kissed him on the cheek and forehead, and walked away to my soccer game.

Your dream is a poignant example of how it’s never too late to make amends to someone we hurt. Even after death, our friends (and perhaps our adversaries, too) are aware of us and what transpired while they were alive. Appearing in a dream is a common way for those who have passed on to communicate with us. Your friend wanted to reassure you that he was alive and well in the afterlife. Hopefully, your dream also reassured you that the wounds in your relationship are healed, and the love between you lives on.
