Today I'll answer a couple of FAQs about the spirit world that I often get in circles, classes and sessions.
I want to mention that I truly believe that there are no hard and fast answers to questions about the spirit world. What I offer you here are my answers which are based on my numerous experiences as a medium and / or what I sense or know, for myself, to be true.
Q: Do our deceased loved ones miss us when they pass?
A: Not really. Not in the same way that we miss them. This is mainly because they are able to see us any time that they want when they are in spirit. They are no longer subject to the time / space restrictions, that we, in body, are. So they can see us and be with us any time that they choose, wherever we might be, whatever we might be doing.
They continue to love us, watch over us, feel concern and interest for our wellbeing, joyful about our successes and cheer us on from the spirit world. They make many attempts to get our attention to let us know that they are there. They come to family celebrations, birthdays, they stay close for wedding anniversaries and graduations. They are "all in" from the spirit world. They want to help us forward on our path. And they want us to be happy.
Of course we, the ones left behind, go through intense periods of grief, missing our loved ones terribly after they have died. We are so used having them there with us in physical form that when they're not anymore it can be a very difficult adjustment. It is not quite the same for them, though. Mostly for the reasons already stated above. But also because when we leave our bodies behind we largely leave behind the needs of the physical world, too. We shed our skin and move into a much higher and more refined vibration where the needs of the physical world simply do not exist. Which is rather difficult for us to understand while we are living. However that is the truth of it. And something we will all experience ourselves one day.
So when you are missing your loved ones in spirit remember that they are only a thought away. Simply thinking of them is enough to bring them close by to help you through the tough times.
Q: Are our deceased loved ones actually visiting us when we see them in dreams?
A: Yes! During dream time our waking defences are at rest, therefore, we are so much more receptive and open to the spirit world. This is exactly why so many people have dreams about someone they love who has died. Spirits know that they can better reach us in dream time because we are unhindered by disbelief, grief and other obstacles that get in the way of a more direct connection with them during waking time. Often they have already tried to get our attention while we are awake and we have not believed what we were seeing or sensing from them. Nothing shuts down spirit communication faster than our not being open to receive what they are trying to send us. When we do this, spirit has to resort to sneaking in the back door, otherwise known as dream time...
Sometimes a spirit visiting us while we are asleep is very straightforward. They show up, we experience some kind of connection with them and then they are off. However, sometimes spirit chooses to "get into" a dream that we are having, in hopes that they will be noticed. This kind of visitation will be in the context of a dreamscape and, because it looks and feels just like a dream, we feel like we are dreaming rather than actually making a connection with that spirit. But do know that even it it feels like it is only a dream, your loved one has presented him or herself to you. Don't doubt that for a second! The more you acknowledge, accept and trust that, the more likely it will be that you'll begin to pick up the signs that your loved one is around you while you are awake.
