My husband died as a result of his drinking and driving.  I had been sober for 9 months when he died.  I have had very vivd "dreams", or so they called them since then.  If anyone wants to share our experiences (I am VERY Christian) That would be Great!  I might add that I have been sober 4 years and 3 months-I'm not crazy, and know a bit about so-called Psychology when what I will tell you happened.  My little tree that my Bruce had bought me was shook the 1st time it was fine-I had a "good friend from high school".  He is nice, but not for me-I was caught by the tree, partly because I was having 2nd thoughts about this guy-my mind DID NOT SHAKE THAT TREE!  HE did this by the GRACE of GOD beyond that, even though I have my doubts, when I'm not sure, my tree still shakes.  It never has done it when I'm totally comfortable with my guests.  I believe completly that a spouse watches over their spouse or loved ones.  I am not just some crazy woman who lost her husband-I have 5 yrs of college, and am going for my masters with an emphasis on Drug and Alcohol Counseling.  I also strongly believe in Christ.  HE brings our loved ones back to sooth us-which it has been to me-take care and I will pray for  you all!
My son died 8 years ago, in a military "mishap". About 6 months after he died, I dreamed of him where he was stationed. He was checking his weapon and then there was a blinding light. Then I could see what he was seeing; he was inside a helicopter, looking out the side of it. He was thinking about his assignment and then looked down at a box of new boots. That's as much as I remember. I believe he sent me his last thoughts and pictures from the last moments of his life. Another night I woke up with a song in my mind that I hardly knew at all but was very meaningfull. Somehow I suddenly knew all the words. It starts," Mama, didn't mean to make you cry. If I'm not back again this time tomorrow, carry on, carry on." Again, I believe he sent it to me, from the other side. These things bring me a measure of peace, since for several reasons, I wasn't notified when his body came back to the states. But because of this, it's hard to have closure. Thanks for listening.
I had another dream, Laura came to me and she was trying to warn me that something was going to happen that would be very upsetting to me. She didn't want me to fall because of what ever was going to occur. She told me it would be painful but I would be ok. Then she left.
The next morning another monster walked into a pharmacy and executed four innocent people and stole drugs.
One was a 17 year old that was supposed to graduate, she was working at the pharmacy .
Another was a woman who was engaged to be married, she was a customer.
The third was a pharmacist and not any less significant than any of the victims was an elderly man who also was a customer.
This horrible, heinous crime was committed by a weasely looking creep and his wife drove the get away car . They both were caught and arrested.
This crime tore open my wounds from my daughters murder. I cried and I hid it from everyone because I was afraid of what everyone would think, even my husband
When I tried to say something to him said stop watching the news! I remembered my dream and I knew that Laura is watching over me and she is always with me.

Its been almost 8 months since my aunt passed away. We were very close...she was like a best friend to me in a lot of ways. I told her things that no one else knew. Things I couldnt tell anyone else. We would hang out together, go to concerts and clubs. My mom always used to worry because of the crazy things we would wind up doing but she always looked out for me. She had some problems that really started to put a strain on the family and it came to a point where I felt it was best to keep my distance. Sometimes you have to when the one you love wont stop doing the wrong thing. Well a lot of time went by and I heard she had gotten very sick and was in the hospital. Anyways she was the type of person who cheated death many times before. We all used to joke that she had 9 lives. Well I guess she used them up last year and she had passed away and I never made it to see her. That is something I really beat myself up over. I asked her during the wake to come visit me anytime. Well I have had numerous dreams with her coming to see me. She always looks so happy and dressed up (many times in white) how she used to when we would go out. She would say to me 'Hey girl, where you been I been looking all over for you!" I told her Im sorry and that I missed her and she said she missed me too. The dreams are so real when I have them that when I wake up and realize it was just a dream my heart breaks all over again.

My family tells me that is her saying its okay that I didnt see her at the hospital but I really miss her. I know I cant bring her back and sometimes I wish I was with her. Maybe shell come visit me again soon.

Hi My name is Jennifer!  Just recently, a week ago, I went to bed not feeling very well, in the early hours of the morning, something woke me up only to see what I thought was an orb, at the foot of my bed. I thought this might be either  parent or specifically my mom of whom has been gone 6 months!  It seems when I get stressed or not feeling well, they appear in dreams to me, looking younger, and happy !  They do not say much, only to awake, and realize that reality is , they are no longer in the physical world! I have told my husband of my dreams, and he looks at me like Iam talking a foreign language like he cannot understand!   I guess for those of us of whom are not sceptic, our loved ones that have departed this world to the next ; see us and communicate with only ways that they know their loved ones would recognize, (Like a thin veil) between mortal and immortal world........

I lost my wife Jere of only 2 months on 5/22/2011. I had a dream about I had died and went to heaven and I could'nt find her. I looked all over and saw everyone I knew and asked if they saw her and the replys were no. I looked feverously for her all over and could'nt find her. It was just a dream and I know that when I die,I will be with her again. this makes my faith even much more stronger......

Brenda, Please accept my most sincere condolences. I am so sorry for the loss of your husband and very proud for your nearly 5 years of sobriety. Since you are a devout Christian I feel comfortable in sharing some scriptures with you on the state of mind of our dead loved ones. No doubt you have a Bible go to Eccl 9:5,6 & 10 there read what it says about the condition of dead persons.What they can and cannot do. See there it says they cannot help us or hurt us. They are resting awaiting the Lords call to wake up John 5:28,29
But soon death will be no more no sorrow no pain Rev 21:3,4 Take comfort in Gods word for out of it are the sources of Life

hi my name is Tracy Bagley. Last night i had a dream that we were at the house of the wife of the husband who gave me the tattoo of my dad. due to control situations i was kept from my dad for 18 months he had advanced prostate cancer due to a dr that didnt listen to him. well 10/31/2011 i got a phone call from my mother that he wasnt going to make it. my mother and controling sister had kept me from him and if he wasnt going to die i never would of known he was in the hospital. he went in by rescue at 10am that morning and i wasnt called until 5:45pm. He ended up with flesh eating disease. long story short in the dream at the cookout i turned and my father was sitting in a chair petting a black cat which would of been one of ours dressed in the same suit i have in my living room and on my leg. didnt say anything and when i turned around he was gone. he just died Nov 3rd 2011. the girl whose husband did the tattoo said to me then that means he made it over to the other side ok.

My husband was in my dream he passed away in 09 and I dreamed he gave me a hug and let me hold him and than told me something about stairs and gave me a hug again and told me he had to go.

It is true that in the past God used dreams to give warnings, instruction, and prophecy, but today he is leading his people through his written word. In which he says at 2 Timothy 3:16,17 "completely equips" us for every good work. Especially, do we know that since the dreams contradict the Holy Writing they don't come from Him or our dead loved ones. He tells us in no uncertain terms at Ecclesiastes 9:6 & 10 " the dead are conscious of nothing" and " there is no devising nor work nor knowledge nor wisdom in the grave" so they are unable to either help us or to hurt us but are awaiting a resurrection to life. There are many beliefs out there we can subscribe to I prefer to believe what the Bible says, that the dead are Resting in Peace not alone and separated from the ones they love and want to be with. If you would like to know more about what the Holy Scriptures says about the condition of the dead and His promises to raise them I'd be happy to share please 'friend' me ,Miss Sylvia

My brother passed 3 months ago. Still in shock and trying to get through the days at this point. ive had a few dreams, but last week i was so sad and had a dream visit from my brother.  He was sitting in my living room and told me he no longer smoked cigarettes and i had to go alone. then he began to shake a picture i have on my wall ( i mean really shake it by looking at it) I freaked out in my dream and he told me it was fine to just watch.  Next he said loook at you. I was levitating up a wall beside my television all the way to the ceiling. Just floating there mid air. It was so craxy. I wake up in my dreams and know they are dreams. I know that night Mike came to see me and sit with me bacesue i needed him to do so.  Dreams are the way our loved ones see us and visit. Write it all down every time to recollect.

When I think about my dreams, I remember they are all about me. What I mean is, those elements that make up my dream come from my experiences during the day; the things I saw, heard and thought about. As I believe that dreams are just the mind's way of keeping the brain working while asleep, assembling in random ways, the different parts of our brain. I liken it to a small child piling up different building blocks in a random fashion.

While some dreams I have seem to have very important messages; I do gain some insight from them at those times. Most times I sleep soundly and don't remember my dreams.

As far as dreams of the woman I loved who took her own life; I am thankful that I am not tortured by her death; I am, as well as I can, living in the present.
