Elusive dreams

Post by Stardust on Sat 13 May 2017, 01:31

I dreamt I answered the door and my mother was there. She handed me something, but when I awoke I couldn't remember what it was, although I have the impression it was something important. This is frustrating me but I simply cannot recall what she gave me. She passed some years ago.

Wow Looby. That was fascinating. But why did you kick yourself all day - because you didn't hear what the important thing was? The way I understand it they meant you to wake Ray up at that moment, so he could confirm he was having the same 'dream' too - it was to let you know that they are still around, and that they're both together. That WAS the important thing they had to tell you, and to let you know that they were able to contact you as well. If it was only you that had the dream and you told Ray about it then you might be inclined to look on it as just a dream, and if you hadnt woken Ray at that precise time he would not have remembered his dream when he woke up later on.
What a marvelous experience for you.

Stardust, I reckon was the same for you - it was a special "dream visit" that you had. How you can tell if your loved ones are actually visiting you in your dreams, rather than you just dreaming about them is that in a "visit" there will always be a barrier of some sort between you and your loved one - could be a door, a curtain (veil), a river ... something like that, and your loved ones will be on the other side of that barrier. You are not aloud to cross it, but sometimes they are able to come through that barrier for a brief time. You may sometimes see an open doorway somewhere behind them in that "dream" - beyond that is where they dwell. The joy experienced by the spirit soul in being able to make that direct contact with you has no end. They really just want us to know that they still exist and to be able to bring their love through to us.
In your case Stardust it was the door, your mother knocked on that door in her attempt to let you know she could see you - and bless! you answered! How happy that must have made her. What she handed you was her love and best of all the knowledge that she was still around you.

Thank you Liz and Candlelight. I hadn't seen it the way you've explained the dream Candlelight, but it makes sense and I feel much happier about it.

that makes sense about a dream i had last september ,
it was my mums birthday the first since she had gone i had been to the cemetry gave her her cards and flowers ,then went to sleep . i remember being at my bedroom window and my mum walking past the house with a birthday cake in her hands with my nana .
they stopped ouside our house looked up and waved to me ,what makes it real for me is my husband said he woke to see me stood at the window waving like mad but there was no=one there,so the window was my barrier

hi candlelight, have had 4 clear visitations myself whilst asleep. my husband has visited my 3 times and always in the hallway, they wer'e in the first months of losing him. the first two he was trying to stay and connect with me but was too weak. on the 3rd i dreamt i was bust upstairs when i heard keys being placed on the fire surround. didtinctively johns keys as they werr'e heavy and he would alwaysplace them there. i ran downstairs and he was there, grinning at the way i pelted down the stairs. i was aware he had passed but i hugged him and he was solid and warm. i said"this is real, you are here, i'm not dreaming this is real". he hugged me so hard and sighed the most happiest of sighs. he looked younger and well. i kissed him and his lips were warm too i can't emphasise enough how real this was. he then faded and i woke up devastated as i was so sure he was alive. i then realised he had visited me and i feel so Smile blessed.
the 4th visit was when i was lay in bed and i was just drifting off or had just gone to sleep when i turned to my right and john was watching me, he was smiling again and i could just see his face, it was about a foot away from mine. he said as clear as a bell"your a good wife", he then leaned over me and hugged me and then he faded.
these are so different to dreams, they are so real and vivid, and feel totally different. you just know they have visited and feel elated.
in these visits there was no barrier between us, yet i know that john visited me. i bouhgt jackie newcombs angel books after this and there are other peoples accounts of visits without barriersand some with.
could it be a falasy (hope iv'e got the right word), that visits always contain barriers. i just know without a shadow of a doubt that mine wer'e visits from john, but don't want to sound like i'm dismissing your thoughts or opinion on this. thanks candlelight love lynne

Hi Lynne, I believe you're truly been blessed where what you've actually experienced is John has actually come through that barrier to connect with you directly, [bless] (there will have been one, not always visible to you, mind) and quite honestly experiencing what you did I think that would be the very last thing you would notice anyway - any sort of "barrier").
I know exactly what you mean about the hug and the warmth, because I've had this too from my mother, the most wonderful feeling that goes right through your whole being, words can't really describe...
In my dream I was first in a dazzling white room with nothing in it at all (except a door frame with no door in it). As I started to move towards this door, suddenly there was a piano in front of me so I stopped and thought oh I want to play the piano. Started to play and it was one of my mum's favourite songs "Isle of Inisfree", I started singing the words - and then heard another voice join in with me (my mum's voice) first seemed far away and then got closer and louder and we were both singing away together. The words "I've met some folks who say that I'm a dreamer, and I've no doubt there's truth in what they say, but sure a body's bound to be a dreamer when all the things he loves are far away, and precious things are dreams unto an exile, they take him o'er the land across the sea...". Then the singing stopped and I looked up and there she was, my mother standing beside the piano (the open doorway behind her) and that's when she gave me the most wonderful hug, which I can still feel to this day.

how lovely candlelight, a really beautiful visit from your mum and the words of the song, so fitting.

thanks for explaining this as i was confused but not doubtful for one second as i know they were visits from my husband and i feel so lucky everday as i can remember then as fresh and clear as when he visited. it that's overwhelming feeling of love and euphoria that makes you "know", it is increadible. so glad you have had this too. we are very fortunate and when i think john broke through them barriers so to speak, is just so what he would do to get to me. thanks candlelight. thanks john, luv you lynne

Last week I dreamt of the Queen. I don't remember most of the dream or what was happening around us but the Queen was sitting down, very sad and upset, with her head bowed and I could feel her sadness in my own heart so I crouched down in front of her, put my arms around her and gave her a big warm comforting hug. That's when I woke up.

A long flared dress or robe, no crown I think. She was completely dejected and overcome (with grief ?) hands in her lap, leaning forward in her seat with her head bowed down. I could feel the heart-heaviness of her echoed in myself and needed to hold and comfort her as you would your own mother. I can't remember what happened before that part of the dream though because that last part had such a profound impact on me that it woke me up and the rest of the dream was gone in a flash. I can still feel the sadness of it now when I think of the dream.

Thanks for sharing those dreams Lynne. Every story like this deserves to be told!

I have a thing for dreams, it seems to me that I have received certain messages in the past (I hope to share these later) besides receiving visits from passed family and friends. I have had more than a handful of surreal premonitive dreams too, but what is bothering me at the moment is that I often have dreams where people are playing football. Now I do like football but I am certainly not a 'true' football supporter and I don't get too carried away with it although I support my team passionately...

...anyway to the point, I am not sure if these dreams coincide with the start of a period of stress and worry at work, but at least 4, maybe 5 times in the past few months I have had dreams where I am playing football or where other people are playing football. Considering I have only dreamed of football or any other sport a few times in my whole life, I find this odd and something is nagging at me that there is a message. I am frustrated, because I have had this 'something nagging' before and it was right...once again I have no idea where this leads....can anyone shed any light?

Hi Shades of Blue,
Are you able to remember more detail in your football dreams? ... like which team you're playing for (Shades of Blue?? could be a crucial difference in meaning there )

No, but seriously, what position are you playing in the dream? Are you aiming for the goal? Are you on the defence? Are you tackling your opponents? Offside? I don't know the technical terms for all the positions in football but if you think about it, could have specific meaning there. Does the dream always end in the same way (at the same stage when you wake?)

hi shades of blue and welcome. i'm glad you enjoyed my post on my visitations. i wish i could shed some light on your dreams. could it perhaps mean you are about to face a challenge where you have to be one step ahead(i was going to say on the ball, but didn't want to sound rude  Embarassed ). are you trying to gain control oversomething which represents the ball in football, but you keep losing it. just some thoughts. hope it becomes clear soon. luv lynne

I wonder if our old friends ever look in here any more and how they all are.

I've been waking up every morning lately knowing I've had a happy dream but without remembering what or who. That is so frustrating. But it's nice to wake up smiling.  very happy

I had a dream involving my dad last night or early hours of the morning but I can remember it. I was dreaming away about something which I dont remember and then the dream switched, I was told to climb up some stairs and go into a room it looked like a bit of an old fashioned pub ( a spitoonie type with wooden floors) there were two men sat down on a bench but I couldn't see their faces. I heard a womans voice saying that two lives would be changed. I looked at one man and his facial features started to emerge but I didn't recognise him, I looked at the second man and there was my dad smiling away at me. I was aware in my dream that my dad is dead but I threw myself at him and hugged him. The hug felt real. He looked so well but he didn't speak to me...I rarely dream of him but I love it when I do. I dont know if it was a visitation dream or not and it doesn't really matter if it wasn't , it was special either way.

It has since occured to me.....what if it was a visitation dream and someone else somewhere was having the same dream at the same time but the other man who I didn't recognise was their relative and my dad was the unrecognisable one?  hmm Mr. Green

I guess we'll never know the answer to that one, Pixie. Some of my dreams stay with me all of the next day. My recurring dream is not a happy experience so I'm often a bit down afterwards. I think I need to consult a dream specialist to find out why this one repeats and repeats. It's like a meal of liver and onions!!!

Without knowing the details of the dream.....maybe it's something that happened to you long ago which you have suppressed? Is it exactly the same each time? Or is it like a recurring dream of something like a plane crash but with different scenarios?
