My dad passed away suddenly in 2003, from a massive heart attack, and I know I’ve talked about this before but, about a year or so after he passed I woke up from a vivid dream, sobbing. Now I don’t know if you or even if I believe it’s possible that loved ones who have died can come and visit you in your dreams, but that night, well you decide……
I was dancing with my dad, like I did when I was little, standing on his feet. He didn’t speak to me, he just held me and danced.
I don’t remember what song was playing, I just remember feeling safe and when I woke up I felt bereft.
I whispered into the darkness, please don’t do that again dad, it’s too soon, it hurts too much.
A few months later a friend of mine had presented for a medium to come to her house and so some readings. She persuaded me to go. When my turn came this lady looked at me and said, ” your dad took you on a trip down memory lane recently, and it upset you. You asked him not to do it again because it hurt too much. He wants you to know he heard you and he will give you more time, but he is always looking out for you.”
As you can imagine I was quite stunned by this. Apart from MrH and my aunt, neither of whom were there that evening or had any connection to this lady, I hadn’t told anyone about this dream.
A few years ago, I had another dream about my dad, this time we were riding his motorcycle like he used to do with me. This time when I woke up I felt peace and I thanked him for the visit and the trip down memory lane. I like to think he’s visited a few times since then, and I’ve also dreamt about my grandmother, we’ve sat and talked and she gave me advice too.
Whether or not you believe in such things, it gives me a little comfort to think that they are still able to watch over us in some way.
