Can loved ones who have passed appear to you in a dream? I suppose there is no way to truly prove this one way or the other. Some will adamantly believe they cannot, while others are convinced they can. Whether a deceased loved one actually appears to you in your dream or whether your Sacred Mind has merely picked up truth from the universe or God will be up to an individual to decide.
I believe whether they actually come to you in your dreams or you are able to tap into something beyond your own consciousness, it really doesn't matter. As long as you are receiving truth and perhaps an answer to a burden you carry that is what is important.
My mother died at the age of 90. She was ready to pass to the next life, so I was not sad. However, I was quite upset with the chaotic family interactions while she lay unconscious in hospice. I wanted to make her look more comfortable but was afraid I would break her neck. This was nothing like I saw in movies. I called for a nurse to adjust her. She did no better of a job than I could have done. My mother never would have wanted anyone to see her the way she was.
I actually left the chaos and went and cleaned her apartment/room with a sister. By the time we returned, she had passed. I believed I should have done "something" to reduce the contention and make my mother at least appear more comfortable. I know there really wasn't much I could do, but it still haunted me.
About a week after her passing, I had a vivid dream. My mother came to me. Even though she didn't appear to be any certain age, she wasn't old or really young, I immediately recognized her. I am guessing she looked maybe 30? when I was born. in the dream, I told her, through my tears, how sorry I was for how things were when she died. She would not have liked any of it.
She sweetly replied, "I know, and it's okay. I am fine, and you do not need to worry about anything anymore." It felt so nice being in her presence. I asked her, "Will you come and visit me again?" She replied, "Probably not, it takes a lot of energy to manifest myself to you." I was puzzled, as I was not expecting that answer.
So was this really my mother's spirit who entered my nighttime dream? I believe it was. If it wasn't, that's okay too, because somehow I tapped into truth and knew my mother was happy and did not want me to concern myself with her passing.
I am still amazed that I saw her as ageless (an age at which I did not remember her), yet I knew her instantly.
I needed comforting, and I believe however it happened, I received my answer.
