Seeing images of deceased people you've never met before
in your dreams and meditations
amanda linette meder
Dream communication is typically considered a form of Spirit contact, a way that Spirits use to start communicating with regular people and also, budding mediums. What does it mean when it happens to you? And what should you do when it happens?
I have never seen a Spirit, but my children have witnessed odd things happening around me for years.
I have always been able to sense energy, pressure change, temperature change, people's moods, and I can also project my mood throughout a room.
But I get images of people I have never met before who have passed almost like a daydream is this normal?
A good example is an ongoing dream that I have been having for 10 years, and in the dream, it progresses. A young child not from the United States was kidnapped in my city and unfortunately murdered.
I do not know if the details are true, but I know that she visits me often and showed me her parents. I was shown where she was taken from, but not where she is.

When you see images in your mind’s eye of Spirits, this is called a clairvoyant vision. When people receive visions of people who have passed, in the absence of any additional messages from the Spirit, many will dig into the research to identify the Spirit.
You may go through newspaper articles, calling in other mediums, even winding up at the historical society.
Some Spirits simply want to be known, especially if they have gone missing. These Spirits will find the nearest open channel and attempt to communicate with the medium nearby, in an effort for their body to get found.
I've had readings before where missing girls have shown up to other mediums, and I've also met other mediums where unidentified Spirits who have died in their neighborhood come forward.
Why Unknown Deceased People Show You How They Died
The deceased who are looking for closure are known as earthbound Spirits and often, to get this closure, they want to be identified, or for their case to be "solved."
To take matters into their own hands, they may visit nearby mediums who they believe can help them. Sometimes you can confirm the details of this Spirit's passing in missing person reports, news reports, or even in historical reports.
Once the case is solved, they typically disappear. But solved on earth and solved in the Spirit World do not mean the same thing.
In many situations, Spirit World resolution does not mean "solved" by law enforcement but rather, that what happened to them is heard by someone who cares. When this occurs, many of these Spirits will cross on their own naturally.
Many deceased who have unresolved deaths will try to reach out to a medium or a relative to heal from or understand their loss.
In the absence of any loved ones to communicate with (for example, no children yet or living relatives), some deceased will reach out to those that can sense them.
They do this to cope with their own death, to release some of the feelings they have about dying before fully crossing over and because some are confused.
Not all Spirits have released their fears about death before dying, so some living will be afraid to go to the Light, and they will appear to mediums to help soothe this fear.
In fact, I was recently at a conference with a Catholic Priest who said he helped Spirits cross over who came to him, describing this same situation you have above.
So some Spirits will show you their death to be heard and for closure before crossing over. I like to listen to the dead who come to me and ask them if they'd like to pass over into the Light, even attempt to talk to them to cross telepathically.
Spirits who go unheard for a very long time can create disruptions in homes and families until they are heard, so helping this girl will undoubtedly assist those in your neighborhood and perhaps even her family.
Why You Might See Faces And People In General
The faces of Spirits, deceased or otherwise, will often appear to budding mediums to let them know of their gifts coming in.
If you're familiar with the work of Debra Katz, she talks about something called the psychic highway, which sounds like what you may be experiencing when you're tapping into here.
The psychic highway is a stream of consciousness that runs around the globe, which we can all tap into and get information from.
Tuning in to the psychic highway, you can get a ton of insights, and you can run into entities here.
We don't always know when we've mentally projected ourselves into this space, until we start seeing rapid images, faces, or have Spirits appearing to us in our mind's eye.
So having Spirits appear to you could be a sign you've projected yourself into another realm, at least astrally. It could be a sign your Spirit Body is elsewhere, and other souls are linking to it.
If this gets too weird, you can bring yourself back down with grounding, meditation, or I like essential oils, such as Frankincense.
About The Psychic Highway
When getting onto the psychic highway unintentionally or accidentally, it's like scanning the radio idly. You can get all types of images that come to you, some meaningless, some not.
Unless we're tuning in for a specific reason, like passing clouds, some of it is just best to observe and let go.
Meaning, not all Spirits who appear when you’re tapped in astrally will be significant to listen to. Some you may just want to pass by and continue on.
Intuitive Anna Sayce has a great article on how to tell if something you've picked up is meaningful or not.
The psychic highway, like a giant series of radio waves that encircle the planet and you, a receiver, when meditating, sleeping or in any type of alpha-beta state, can pick up the signals.
Often times, this starts happening by accident. Or it happens when people start embarking on life changes that open up their consciousness. Either way, being able to tap into the astral highway is often a positive change in people's lives.
How you tune in, when and on to what station, can often be managed by honing in your gifts.
How To Communicate With A Deceased Spirit
Should you start communicating with all the Spirits, you see in your meditation and dream state? Or at least this one?
Most of us can do this through telepathic, clairaudient spirit communication. Ask them to show you in mental images for what they need.
By visualizing clairvoyant images or having thoughts back at them while they are in our presence, we can return communication to them.
When you have Spirits contacting you or you are having unknown Spirits come to you in dream-space, if they've died, in many cases, it's because they need help being heard or crossing over.
Usually, a deceased Spirit who appears to someone randomly is looking for some assistance.
Read this article on how Spirits communicate to see how you can draw information out of whoever is visiting to help them. Once you learn what they want to say or talk about, they usually vanish.
If they don't vanish, a deceased may need assistance crossing over, which usually involves empathizing with them and helping to release their fear of death. Read this article on crossing over an Earthbound, I also have an eBook on it.
Most random deceased Spirits are not looking for a long term relationship with you.
Other Types Of Spirits Who Can Appear In Dreams and Meditations
If you are getting Spirits appearing to you who are strangers and they aren't showing you their deaths, there is a chance that these Spirits are:
Your Spirit Guides
Other People In Your Soul Group You Haven't Met Yet
People From a Past Life
People Representing Archetypes From Your Current Life
You may want to dig in more or ask for your Guides to reveal to you in meditation, why these individuals are appearing. Usually, it's a Spirit Guide, but in some cases, it involves people in a soul group or past life scenario.
If the Spirit feels safe and if they've been communicating with you, I'd do my best to further communication with protection and grounding to sort it out.
Most mediums recommend long-term communication is only to be reserved for Guides and Angels and your Higher Self. However, ignoring Spirit messages, especially long term dreams and perceptions, isn't always a good idea either.
To resolve a stranger Spirit visiting you
To identify your Spirit girl and help her move on, at the very least, that's what I would do.
I'd at least try to tune into her and see what she needs so she can move on from your dreams.
Maybe she wants you to research where she came from and discover her true identity. Maybe she's a harbinger for other Spirits, trying to get you to open up to your gifts and start asking these questions more seriously.
And as a little girl, she can get through more efficiently. Maybe she's just a lost soul looking for her parents.
If she needs help crossing over, in which case, I'd recommend an eBook I have on releasing Spirits, Transitions: A Guide To Releasing Spirits, also check out the list of helpful resources below.
So to recap:
Deceased Spirits appearing are typically looking for help
They will appear to the nearest willing medium who they can contact when desperate
Sometimes they just want to be heard and their fears released so they can cross over
You can cross over a Spirit by telepathically soothing their concerns and calling in Spirit friends
There are many reasons why unknown people may be showing up in our dreams, such as in a few of the examples above, but if it's a deceased person, they are typically looking for healing, resolution, and clearing.
Deceased Spirits showing you how they died is a common mediumship initiation practice. It even happened to me when I first started opening.
One of the hypotheses as to why Spirits visit nearby mediums for help independent of a known living client is that it's an opportunity the Spirit World is giving you to practice your gifts.
