In the last two years, both my big brother and my dad passed away. They were television watching buddies. There was rarely any chit-chat with them deeper than the weather and who won a local sport’s game. Oddly enough, every time my dad has come through in a dream visit, my brother is with him. Not my mom. My brother.
My dad was my person, and this last year has not been easy without him. I miss him, although I’m grateful he isn’t any pain any longer. He’s come through many times with dream visits since his passing. He has apologized. He has told me he loves me. He has thanked me, but last night he picked out a gift for me.
I’m blessed to have frequent dream visits. I think it’s because my dad was a determined and strong energy in life and so is the same in the afterlife. Dad wore jeans and the blue plaid flannel shirt I laid in his casket. He had on his Detroit Tiger cap. And he was determined to buy me one last gift.
Me: I don’t need a gift, dad, just a hug will do.
Dad: No, but I owe you a gift.
It was as if we were at an old marketplace that had crafts and trinkets. On the counter was jewelry on a black velvet cloth.
Dad: This, I want this for you.
He held up a gold heart locket.
He reached into his back pocket and took out his wallet and paid the lady at the counter.
Dad: I want you to have this, he repeated.
And as he hugged me, he clasped the necklace around my neck.
And I woke up.
Gifts were always his love language. He would always buy me a Mother’s Day gift and just because gifts. Gifts are not my love language, but I was always grateful. And although I don’t physically have that gold locket, I will wear it on my heart.
What are Dream Visits?
A dream visit is contact/communication with the afterlife while you are in a dream state. There are several factors that can help you tell if it is just a dream or if it is a visit.
- Visitations are vivid and very real.
- You can often tell the details of the visitation years later, as if you just had that experience the night before.
- You often don’t communication with words, but through emotions, touch, and signs.
- The visit should leave you comforted. You may feel emotional, but you should not feel disturbed.
