In my previous post, I shared a few vivid dream visitations from my father after he passed. He looked younger and happier in my early dreams. Then, after a month or two, they turned chilling…
I was standing at the top of basement stairs, looking down onto a landing, and my father was standing there. It was pitch black, except for the light behind me shining down onto his head and torso. He had a sad look on his face and he looked old and frail. I felt that he was saying goodbye.
I woke myself up from that dream.
A week later, I woke up shaking from a nightmare.
I was in a fetal position in a spotlight on a darkened theater stage in my dream. Then I started to scream and scream.
I managed to wake myself up at that point. I knew what this dream represented. The last time I saw my father, he was in a coma at the hospital. As my family and I were walking down the hall to the elevator, the nursing staff moved him, and he automatically cried out. It was such an awful cry that I asked my brother what it was. That was the last memory of my father. And it was terrible.
After that horrid dream he disappeared for several months. Then, my father started to reappear in my dreams, making cameo appearances. If I dreamt of being in my parent’s home, but I didn’t see him, I just knew he was there, like in another room. It was nice to see my father, even if it was briefly in my dreams. I would always wake up in a good mood and think about the dream most of the day.
Lately, my dreams have been more interactive. I’ve carried on conversations with him for example. One time he picked me up in his car, and when I got in I told him it might not be a good idea to let him drive me since he was dead? He just smiled at me and started driving. I knew I would be safe with him, so I didn’t protest or ask to be let out of the car!
Do you have a close relative or friend who is deceased? Do you think about seeing them again but would be too afraid to have them just appear in your room? You can ask them to visit you in your dreams. As you get ready to fall asleep, tell your loved one that you are open to a visit from them in your dreams. Think about them as you are falling asleep and what you would like to ask them. See what happens! I would love to hear your dream visitation stories.
