Seeing deceased loved ones in dreams

Dreaming of a dead relative?
Visitation dreams are highly common after the passing of a Loved One.
In fact, many people have been visited by friends, family, and acquaintances in the form of a dream.
Dreams of deceased loved ones, including dreams of deceased pets and dreams of deceased friends, are common.
When it comes to dreams of the deceased, it's possible to experience dream visitations from more than just our physical family. We can also experience visitations from members of our soul family.
This happens so often that I consider dreams the number one visitation method used by the deceased. In fact, The Spiritual Research Center says that up to 70% of dreams of the deceased are spiritual origin in nature.
So if you're dreaming of a dead relative, you aren’t alone.
Why A Spirit May Be Visiting You In Your Dreams
Though some vivid dreams are actually visitation dreams. Visitation dreams are typically the types of dreams discussed when someone sees a deceased loved one in their dreams.
They Have A Message
They likely have a message for you or for someone that you love.
You can read into the message in dreams easily, typically by looking into the symbolism and metaphors in the dream they're in.
Visitation dreams are also common when physical world messages have gone ignored.
We ignore Spirit's daily signs so much so that interrupting you in your dreams becomes necessary. We do this because:
We don't want to believe the signs
We're becoming too creeped out by them
It has become more comfortable to ignore them than it has become to pay attention
Why They Are Giving You Messages
You tend to get more signs from the Spirit World, as you become more spiritually connected.
When spending more time working on projects that feed your soul, it's likely the Spirit World may start paying more attention to you.
Through a connection to creation, the Spirit World may attempt to communicate with you, more than others in your family.
They will usually attempt and direct their communication to the person in the family most connected to universal wisdom and truth. This is typically the lightworker of the group, sometimes known as the "black sheep" of the family.
The black sheep is known to bring out the darkness, so it comes into the light. This is how black sheep end up becoming lightworkers, the person who works with the raw materials they have to bring forward light.
The deceased, after crossing, will often come to huge realizations about:
How they behaved
What happened while they were on earth
What they wish they could have said or done while alive
They may want to bring through these realizations to heal the family, possibly through you and what you do with the messages.
Many of the deceased have messages for the living
However, not all of those who are living, want or are willing to hear the messages perhaps due to:
General ignorance regarding the plausibility or possibility of Spirit Communication
So some spirits will attempt to get through to the physical world to others associated with whoever they want to contact.
To get their message across, the deceased will try everything they can, including:
They will send signs
They will visit you
They will try to appear to you
They will make noises in your house
They will try to make electrical toys malfunction
They will attempt to make you sense their presence
They will call your name when no one is there - they will do anything
Despite this, many people remain oblivious to these attempts at communication.
So, those in Spirit will try to get in touch with someone else - to get the attention of the person they really want to connect with.
That is, a deceased relative will often visit a friend, a family member, or an acquaintance to get a message to someone who isn’t listening.
If you dream of a deceased person you didn’t know very well, this is most likely what is going on. They want you to get the attention of the person who is not paying attention.
What Can You Do If You’ve Dreamt Of A Relative?
If you're having a dream of a relative, tell someone you feel safe with. It could help in someone else's healing.
If you believe their messages are more for you, write them down and take the actions suggested. These suggestions are typically loving.
Those who dream of the deceased are usually changed in some way by the dream, which can also be a positive thing.

PS - Sometimes a deceased relative will visit in a dream and the message doesn’t make sense the first time. I’ve found Spirit will visit over a couple of nights in a row to give more information. For this reason, you may find it helpful to record your dreams over a series of three nights.
