If you ask a psychologist what they think of dreams their logical and rational opinion will differ from the opinions of a spiritual person. Dreams are incredible insights that bridge the gap of communication between the spirit and the material world. But, there is a noticeable difference between a regular dream and a visitation dream.
What is a visitation dream?
A visitation dream is a hyper-intensive dream where a deceased soul or loved one visits you in the dream. People who experience a visitation dream claim the dream’s intensity feels real and can remember vivid details. Some may disregard the dream as nothing special, but those who are open and not fearful of the experience can find answers, closure or insight to that soul or their life.
Why do visitations happen in a dream?
Visitations occur in our sleeping state because the five senses and ego are at rest. This allows us to tap into our sixth sense and intuition in order to allow for these communications to happen. In the waking state, many people disconnect to their spirit and block receiving intuitive information. Plus, most people who cannot define their relationship with the “Source” would “freak out” and are not open to hearing messages or seeing visuals.
Why do these dreams occur?
These dreams occur for various reasons and at any time. Visitation dreams occur for several reasons such as:
-A loved one recently past. They “show up” in the dream to notify the living being that his or her soul is okay.
-A soul needs closure and needs to communicate their feelings to answer or resolve something that happened during their physical life.
-A soul visits you to inform you of a problem or clue to living a better life. Often when we are lost in life the spirit world shows up to direct us to the “right” path. Or the soul is there to provide comfort and love during a rough time to assure you that everything will be okay.
-A soul may visit just to visit. If they’ve been on your mind a soul may pop up to show their presence or strengthen your memories of them. This also occurs for those who are grieving. The soul wants you to know that they are okay.
What do I do after the dream?
Depending on your level of comfort, it is important to write down the dream. This is beneficial when looking back at your spiritual growth. The second is to analyze the dream. Were there key insights or assurances to questions you’ve had? Can your mind rest knowing that your loved one is okay? Humans are complex beings and our layers of emotions get jumbled with the ego.
Being open to visitations during the sleeping state progresses you to having signs and signals from past loved one during the waking state. Some souls visit to show you that there is life after death where others return as a spirit guide. The answer is within you and your intuition. Only you can interpret the meaning of the dream and their presence.
