Journey Into Your Dreams: Connect With Loved Ones

Recognizing Visitation Dreams

When I was 12 years old, my 29-year-old brother died in Vietnam. Over the years, I don’t recall ever dreaming about him. Then one night I had a dream in which he and I were walking together down an empty road. We were both adults. The dream seemed so real that I asked him, “Are you alive again, or am I dead?” He smiled and said, “It’s a little of both.”

Quantum Physics

At the time I was exploring quantum physics, particularly in relation to paranormal experiences. From one lecture I had learned that when we sleep, our “particle” body and “wave” spirit separate. Our spirit then has the ability to mingle with other wave energy, including other discarnate spirits. As my brother so plainly described it, the living can become a little bit like the dead, and the dead can become a little bit like the living. This gives us the ability to meet in the dream realm, where the rules of traditional physical science no longer apply.

Dream Characteristics

These so-called visitation dreams are fairly easy to recognize, because people who have had them report some common characteristics. First, the dream seems too real to be a dream. Some people even report physical sensations such as feeling the touch of their loved one or smelling a favorite scent associated with that person when he or she was alive. Medium Patrick Mathews reveals in his book “Never Say Goodbye” that when his grandmother visited him in a dream when he was young, he felt the pressure of an object being placed on his pillow as his grandmother placed a cat next to him in his dream.

Secondly, visitation dreams rarely have storylines. They are more like an intense moment than a succession of events. Many times the purpose of the visit is to deliver a specific message. Furthermore, these dreams can be accompanied by unusual bright light, and dreamers report that the person’s face—especially the eyes—is enhanced in some way. Upon waking from a visitation dream, the dreamer experiences a remarkable feeling of love or peace. Emotions, in general, are intensified either during or after psi dreams, reports Rosemary Ellen Guiley in her book “Dreamwork for the Soul.”

Not Just the Deceased

Although visitation dreams most commonly refer to visits from loved ones who have died, some dreamers are also visited by their children-to-be (see Babies From Beyond, January 15, 2008), sometimes years before pregnancy occurs. Other dreamers are visited by friends or relatives who are still alive but living far away.

Let It Be

One of the most popular visitation dreams on record is that of musician Paul McCartney being visited by his mother, Mary. As he explains in the book “The Right Words at the Right Time” by actress Marlo Thomas, McCartney’s mother had died when he was 14 years old. Then 12 years later, when the Beatles were on the verge of breaking up, his mother appeared to him in a dream.

“There was her face,” he describes, “completely clear, particularly her eyes; and she said to me very gently, very reassuringly, ‘Let it be.’” Upon awakening, he went to his piano and wrote the beginning of the song that you have probably heard many times… “When I find myself in times of trouble, Mother Mary comes to me, speaking words of wisdom, let it be.”

    I had a dream a few years ago on Easter. It was the first holiday after my grandma passed. In the dream I was driving to my grandparents house to check on my my grandfather. I saw a tornado which is rare for the area we live in, I got to the house and took cover. As I sat there my grandmother appeared I started crying she kept telling me I was going to be alright and to keep an eye on my nephews. She kept telling me it was alright, and then hugged me and said she had to go… I cried harder she appoligized and said she had to go. She started crying too. Then dissapeared. I then woke up, and in my room as I laid in my bed crying I could smell my grandmothers perfume. What does this all mean and I’m sure she was visiting me.

    I had my dog, Sammy, for 14 years and I loved her dearly. She developed a lump on her shoulder and, over a two year period, it grew to the size of a softball. Eventually, she had a minor stroke and the lump started to seep. My vet told me that it was time to let her go. It was the hardest thing that I had ever done and I was absolutely devastated. I barley slept that night and the next afternoon I laid down on the bed and closed my eyes. In my sleep, I could see that my bedroom door was open and I saw Sammy’s little face at the door. I said, “Hi, baby! Come in and see Mommy!” and I watched as she walked into the room with her tail wagging. She looked so happy and the lump on her shoulder was gone! At that moment, I opened my eyes, sat up, and realized that she wasn’t there. I told myself that it was just a vivid dream and I laid back down. As soon as I put my head on the pillow, the bed jolted, as it often did when Sammy laid on the floor beside me. It was then that I realized that I had been visited by my dog who I had loved for so many years and that she was okay.

    This was very interesting. I’m a Pisces and have had many vivid dreams. But I know they weren’t just a dream. I astro projected at least 3 times. I know things before it happens. Usually I leave through my stomach and come back with a jolt. I want to thank my Grandmother for my life I could have lost. I just feel so fortunate and love reading your articles. Pam

    Wonderful article about a fascinating subject. I love working with those that are having vivid dreams in particular experiencing visitations in the dream state by their Spirit Guides and Guardian Angels. Thank you so much for sharing this with us.
