I would like to ask about my dream where my mother, who is dead, came as a light.
UNFORTUNATELY, OR FORTUNATELY, WHICHEVER THE CASE MAY BE, MOST OF THESE “VISITATIONS” BY THE NEWLY DEAD OR RECENTLY DEAD ARE WISHES OR DREAMS IN WHICH THE LOST LOVED ONE ABSOLVES ONE OF ANY GUILT FEELINGS, OR MERELY SAYS A PROPER GOOD BYE. IT IS RARE FOR A SOUL LESS THAN FIFTY YEARS INTO THE ASTRAL CYCLE TO BE IN ANY POSITION TO COMMUNICATE. THE EXCEPTION TO THIS OF COURSE ARE THOSE WHO DIE SUDDENLY OR VIOLENTLY AND WHO OFTEN TRY DESPERATELY TO CLING TO THE PHYSICAL PLANE.
Is it possible to ask about someone in my life who came to me in a dream after his death before I knew of his death. What did the dream mean?
IT IS NOT UNUSUAL FOR SOULS TO SAY GOOD-BYE TO THOSE CLOSE TO THEM. IT IS, HOWEVER, UNUSUAL FOR ANYONE TO HEAR THEM. MANY TRY SEVERAL TIMES BEFORE THEY FIND ANYONE RECEPTIVE; ALSO, IT IS TRUE, YOU DO SPEND A PORTION OF EACH EVENING IN GOING TO THE ASTRAL PLANE, AND NEWLY TRANSCENDED [recently deceased] SOULS WHO ARE STILL ON THE LOW ASTRAL PLANE CAN CONTACT YOU.
