Visitation Dream? Dream Interpretation Help


Recommended Posts

Today marks 6 months away from my best friend. She passed away unexpectedly in May, and I've been reflecting on past dreams, emotions, and memories...trying to feel better.

I would like to explain a dream I had that I am certain was a visitation dream, but I would like opinions and thoughts from fellow dream interpreters!

So, I was in this beautiful garden. This garden was covered with flowers and green grass. It was circular, with a big white gazebo in the middle. A river flowed around the gazebo, and the only way to get to it was to cross a white wooden bridge covered in vines and flowers. It was very quiet, but comfortable. The only noise was the whispering and the flowing water of the river.

I was walking with one of my friends (who is still alive and healthy) and knew we were somewhere different. There were people, across the garden past the gazebo and also in it. Everyone was dressed in white, except for me and my friend. It was like we were visiting a distant land. I felt safe.

I saw her, my friend that had passed, walking towards me, and I knew it was her instantly. She was also dressed in all white. We hugged immediately, and it felt so real. I kept sobbing, "I'm sorry. I'm sorry" while she answered, "It's ok. I'm ok. It's ok. I'm ok." Reassuring me. I felt my chin brush against her head while we hugged and cried. I don't remember much after that... I remember waking up and feeling like I was just hugged very tight. I felt so much happier, but I want to relive that dream every night...

What does this mean? Did my friend really visit me to tell me she was ok? Why was my other alive friend with me? It just felt so real, and I remember so much of it, that I just can't ignore it. My friend had always been spiritual and liked talking about dreams, so I feel that she really was there, and that this is how she can connect with me again.

What would your friend have told you if she heard your dream? How would she interpret it for you if she were here?

 

I think it's your subconscious filling in the blanks for what she would say if she were here with you today. I am so sorry for the loss.

It's your subconscious processing the grief and the loss. The part that felt so real is loss and you missing her dearly. The part that felt so peaceful, safe, happy - that's letting go. It's slowly arriving at acceptance while still missing the person you lost dearly.

I've had a couple dreams in my lifetime that were an exception to most. So I get what you are asking.

I don't know what I believe in, but these particular dreams of people that passed were more than dreams. . . To me.

 

I may have dreamt about them on other occasions, but there is something different about the type of dream I think you are asking about?

 

I don't know what answer to give you, other than - give it whatever meaning you desire, if that brings you comfort. There are no rules. It's totally up to you.

 

I am sorry about your friend.

Yesterday was the anniversary of my mom's passing. I dreamt about her last night, but it was one of those ordinary dreams that I struggle to recall today.

I will give it a go ...I am spiritual but not a dream interpreter by any stretch ...so I will tell you what came into my mind as soon as I read your post ....that is usually where the truth lies , those first thoughts and feelings before we dissect it and turn it into something else ( which we are all guilty of )

 

I felt a great sadness from you which is understandable and expected but also a feeling of desperation ...so just try and take this as a beautiful experience , one that may not happen again quite like that and probably wont be repeated every night no matter how much we want these things .

 

Yes I believe she visited you , it is said that spirit will come just as we are bobbing off to sleep or just waking up ...there is that small window where we are with it /not with it and our minds are more open because we havent closed down or opened up fully ...if that makes sense ...

 

I think the story speaks for itself ....you and your friend had to cross a bridge to get there ...because it was another land ...and you are only a visitor , the same goes for the clothing , you and your other friend are not in white , you are not part of that place and clearly your friend wants you to realise this and to carry on your life , you where with the living in this dream , you walked there with the living , because your friend wants you to live your life to the full , even though she is there , she wants you to know you don't belong there , which is what the other friend represented ...life ... she was there because you have people still who care ,who want to walk life's path with you ...your life hasn't and shouldn't stop because she is gone ......You hugged , you cried , you had that moment to hold her one last time and tell her .and I guess your friend knew you needed that and because you are open to it she came ..

 

It is beautiful ..just treasure this ......and know in your darkest hour that you friend walks with you but wants you to have your life and live it .

Thanks Pippy. ((hugs))

 

I just wanted to share a dream. My mom was in the hospital, cancer, cancer treatments. . too long a story to share. But my intuition was tugging at me that her death was more imminent than anyone would admit. It felt so guilty for having these feelings but the signs were all pointing that direction. Nevertheless, my brother and the doctors spoke in terms otherwise. While I couldn't shake the dread, my brother wants to discuss what it will be like when she comes home.

 

I had the most lucid dream right about that time. My father had passed several years ago and while he had passed I did get to sit with him and I said my goodbyes and told him "Ill be seeing you in my dreams" That was 2006 and I never once had a dream of my father. I felt so cheated. Did I jinx it by saying that?

 

It was about a week before my mom passed and I finally had my first dream of my father. I am leaving Target and he is standing just inside the sliding doors. It was so real that I can't explain it. (and if it's only a dream how could I determine in that moment that I was in the present and he was a spirit standing there?)

 

I stopped, shocked and I kept asking him "what are you doing here?!" and that went from "why now, why are you here now!?" and crying. Everytime I moved towards him he backed up. At some point he could see I was very upset and he let me hug him. He never said a word. As I went into his arms, he disappeared and I woke up sobbing. Again, I don't know what to believe but I think my Dad showed up to escort my Mom. *Or, because I don't know any different I CHOOSE to believe

 

I told my brother about the dream and didn't prompt him in any way about my sense that Mom was declining or how I interpreted the timing of my Dad finally showing up in a dream. Unsolicited, tears started streaming down his face. Without saying a word his interpretation was the same as mine.

 

It's something I will never forget and it wasn't like anything else I have ever experienced.

 

*didn't mean to hijack your thread. Just hoping my story helps.

Firstly .......I am literally sat sobbng for you both with empathy and for my own losses ( God how self involved am I :eek:) love and hugs to you both xxx

 

You didn't jinx anything with your dad , not a bit of it ... I think it more the case that we want it too much we block them , we are so desperate , need it , want it ...we are too clogged up with wanting the one thing we end up pushing away because our minds are not as open as they can be ...He came to you when your mind was engaged in the grief of your mum dying and yes he came for your mum without any shadow of a doubt and your brother just knowing that too ....

 

I have experienced it twice and I know exactly what you mean when you say it is like nothing you have ever experienced .

 

I am sure my friend wont mind me saying this ....we are army friends so go back over 30 years ...I have never met her mum and dad and me and her live miles apart . Her mum died a year after my mum and sadly her dad within the year had passed ( from a broken heart and it really is a thing ) .....well they come to me .. she is desperate for them to just give her a sign , something , anything ..just please anything ...that is how she felt . ....and nothing ........... but her mum mostly , comes to me , with signs and images and random things ....when it started I wrote to her a little embarrassed , how do you start a conversation that leads to someone's mum coming to you in spirit !! Fortunately she is spiritual and knows me enough to know that if I said it happened , there is no reason for me to make it up ... it all meant something to her ( wont go into the detail to respect family privacy ) but everything that came to me was actually a thing ... and it gave her great comfort . We don't know why me !!! Only she wanted it so bad , they couldn't get to her ...I believe and they knew she would believe me .....obviously this is us piecing it all together . Her mum has since come to her in the garden , this year ..5 years on .

I've always admired you Pippy. How can it be that you are even more amazing than I imagined?

 

What a great story! I just went from crying to chills.

 

I will remember what you said by wanting it too much. It makes perfect sense.

 

Oh you xxxx what a lovely thing to say to me , I have gone from snot to smile ....thankyou xxx And you're none to shabby yourself reinvent

 

I must say I admire both of you writing your stories because it is not a spiritual forum and it takes guts and self respect to just own it and speak your truth ..so fair play .

 

Someone will have said to me ....you're trying too hard ...for me to get it as well ...then it all fits into place and you have that ahhh moment .

 

I hope all of this brings some comfort laurelee , you had an amazing experience , it doesn't change the outcome I know ...but go forward with the comfort of her visiting you xx

Thank you for sharing, I take comfort in knowing that people interpret their dreams like I do. Its these dreams we have during stressful times in our lives that speaks volumes. Not sure if its due to chemicals & whatnot, but regardless they make quite the impression...I am glad your brother agreed with your interpretation without even telling him. I don't know where I would be without the support of my family and friends....maybe that is why your dad visited you in your dream? He might've felt your worries and wanted to make the notice meaningful for you, and/or maybe to make you feel better, knowing your mother has him up there...

The world works in mysterious ways...

Spot on. I agree that trying too hard blocks them from actually reaching us. It is like they know when we need them. These dreams are special because they are so sporadic. It was good that you told your friend about her mother visiting you. Nobody would make up something like that. It gave her hope. Thank you for sharing.

Last year one of my best friends Jak , rang me on the Friday .... we have been friends since we were me 17 and her 18 ... she always called on a Sunday ...so I said , * this is a funny looking Sunday * and we laughed and she said she just felt like calling ............In the early hours of Sunday morning she died in her sleep just like that .....had something not made her call me on the Friday I would never have spoken to her again .

 

I know I am so desperate I am blocking it all .... she believed in me so much , she bought me my first pack of Tarot cards ...so I know ..when the time is right ...she will come .

Oh Pip, I remember that. Such an awful day. I know you've gone through what I have gone through. So rough. xxx

 

I 100% believe that our loved ones come to us in dreams. I have had similar happen and without going into too many details, I know it was real and I know they came to let me know that they were okay.

 

I'm happy for you OP that you had that dream. It's a way for our loved ones who have passed to still connect with us. It's a gift.

I was really close to my maternal grandmother. In her declining years she lived with my parents. About 6 months after she passed I stayed with my parents and slept in the room my grandmother had stayed in.

 

I was waking up in the morning, neither asleep or wide awake but in the inbetween stage. I remember thinking it was odd that I felt this soft breeze on my face. I was still coming out of sleep and I felt something gently touch my cheek. It startled me.

 

I'm now fully awake and the breeze went away like a vacuum. I sat up wondering what the heck that was. The room was still and quiet. I want to believe it was my grandmother. That's the first thing that came to mind

 

I went into the kitchen and told my mother. I didnt mention my grandmother but just the soft breeze and how weird it was that something gently touched my face.

 

My mom smiled and said `Grandma'

OH wow just wow ...I love these stories , I don't love that someone passed to enable the stories obviously ..but these little brushes of the face , and someone out the corner of your eye or a soft breath or whiff of perfume ...It gives me peace to hear all this .

 

My mom smiled and said `Grandma'

 

I got goosebumps head to foot then
