Have you ever dreamt of a deceased loved one and at the end of the dream felt like they had really visited you? If you have, you may have experienced a “visitation dream”.
People will often describe experiencing visitation dreams shortly after a loved one has passed on. Patrick McNamara Ph.D. explained in an article for Psychology Today that visitation dreams share several common elements and pointed to research that identifies these characteristics.
For instance, the deceased often appear healthy, not sick as they might have been towards the end of their lives. And they often convey reassurance and comfort to the dreamer.
“The deceased appeared as they did in life rather than as they did when they fell ill,” McNamara writes. “In fact the deceased often appeared much younger or more healthy than when they died. The deceased conveyed reassurance to the dreamer. ‘I am OK and still with you’ This message tended to be conveyed telepathically or mentally rather than via spoken word. Visitation dreams are typically clear, vivid, intense and are experienced as real visits when the dreamer awakens.”
Dreamers always say that they are changed by the experience. Many report that they feel some form of resolution to their grieving process or that they have gained a spiritual perspective.
