Have you experienced realistic dreams about a loved one who has passed on? This could indicate that you have had a visitation dream. This is when a deceased person or pet visits you while you are asleep. In addition to seeing lost loved ones, some people also have dreams with their guardian angels or spiritual guides.

A visitation dream often occurs when someone misses a loved one. They are most common in the weeks or months right after death. However, you might wonder if the person is really visiting you or if your brain is simply telling you that it happened.

Common Themes of Visitation Dreams

There’s no solid proof of whether someone visits you in a dream or not. However, there are many signs to be aware of. If any of the following occur, it is likely that you have just experienced a visitation dream:

  • An extremely detailed dream that feels very real when waking up
  • Momentary bouts of sleep paralysis if you wake during the dream that makes it hard to speak or move
  • Circumstances and conversations throughout the dream may not be as symbolic as in other dreams. However, the message will be of great importance.
  • The dream stays with you long after you awaken and may remain detailed for many years in the future.
  • Brief encounters during the dream
  • The visitor will communicate well even if they don’t speak with a mouth. Communication can be visual, verbal, or telepathic. Sometimes nothing is said but you know what was communicated regardless.
  • When waking, sensory input may seem strange. This might mean physical sensations, sounds, a chill, or aromas that could have occurred in the dream bleed into real life.
  • These dreams can be very lucid. That means you can often control your action, words, and thoughts more than you do in other dreams you experience.

What Visitation Dreams Mean

These dreams tend to be very literal rather than symbolic and a way for your subconscious to communicate with you. Interpreting the symbols in the dream may not work like other times. Instead, you come out of it with a feeling of meaning and purpose due to the events and conversations you had.

Most visitation dreams are used to share important information or provide comfort. Whether the person is really visiting you in the dream can vary. If you wish to communicate with a loved one who has passed on, contact Mel Doerr, I can help you with the process.
