Do we dream of departed loveds one because we miss them, or because they are trying to relay a message?

Do we dream of departed loveds one because we miss them, or because they are trying to relay a message? May 28, 2013


The Law of Attraction assembles all cooperative Relationships. The Vortex is literally drawing in all things necessary for the completion of every request it contains. All cooperative components are being summoned and are coming for the completion of these creations, for the answering of these questions, for the solutions to these problems.


Are dreams of departed loved ones simply memories playing out in the dreamscape, helping the bereaved to move through the grieving process? Or are our beloved departed’s dream visitations actual encounters?

I believe they can certainly be both. However, according to Elisabeth Kübler-Ross, dreams about our loved ones on the other side of the veil are “true contacts on a spiritual plane with messages for the living.”

You may be surprised to discover that you might also have a message to deliver to the departed. Think of the communication as a two-way street that can allow for resolution and/or the fulfillment of a soul contract. Ultimately, these dreams are a gift to not only help you stay connected with those you love, but to give you direct access to your “super-natural” power, blessings, and the wisdom of your multi-dimensional soul.

Unless you are a lucid dreaming expert, it’s difficult to press the dream button and ensure your loved one on the other side will come through in your dreams on demand when you say so. However, I believe that we can do our part, and then let them meet us the rest of the way.

If you’d like to receive a dreamtime message from a beloved on the other side of the veil, I suggest the following:

  • Light a candle
  • Take a look at a photograph of the person, or hold an heirloom in your hands that you associate with them.
  • Close your eyes, and envision an energizing memory of the person…perhaps your best memory.
  • With eyes closed, or while gazing upon their photo in a meditative way, form a question you have for them. Or you can simply pose the intent, “Relay a message to me in the dreamtime regarding ‘x’.”


The most important thing to know as you drift into dreamland is that your personal angels (aka your departed loved ones) are with you. Breathe in the fact that their wisdom and love is here for you any time you need or desire it. You can stop feeling alone in the world, for if you could fathom how much support and guidance there is beaming down upon you from the other side, you would never cry again. You are held in a supernatural web of light, miracles, and prayers. Let this energy and guidance inform your steps, words, and decisions. Tap into the higher view of your deceased loved ones to envision how they see you and the ways in which they are rooting for and assisting you.
