Receiving Gifts From The Dead

Did you know when we dream of the dead they are often know to bring us gifts from beyond the grave.

Thousands of people a month search google to find out the meaning behind these dreams. The most common place to communicate and interact with our dead loved ones is often experienced in the dream realm. During this the time our minds are most relaxed and more susceptible for contact, usually during rapid eye movement.

It seems you might have entered the ‘middle way‘ between heaven and earth, the place where you both parties seem to connect then separate. In this area you get a quick glimpse of your dead relatives or friends one last time.

Receiving Gifts In My Dream

Receiving any type of gift from beyond the grave can be considered a rare yet positive omen. The gift or item handed to you would be solely unique to the dreamer –  sometimes you might not even see what’s inside.

These gifts have symbolic meaning to both parties, sometimes it may appear as a metaphor that contains a hidden message in it. The dead are frequently known to bring you these types of items.

They are expressing their thoughts or emotions though these items for you to decode. Pay close attention to the small details such as locations, people around you and the context of your dream as they help piece the puzzle together.

Remember after this meeting you might not be as lucky to meet again it’s vital to gather as much detail about your dream as possible. Keep in mind that any negative contact dreams usually reflects our own personal feelings, fears, and worries are often repressed stored in our unconscious mind.

Why Are They Coming To Me?

Consider yourself lucky as the gift you received from the dead suggests you are ‘gifted’  in a metaphorical sense. You have been selected over the others to spread this message or to obtain hidden knowledge, but what exactly they are trying to tell you? Perhaps this is a sign to explore your abilities

Unlike your average dream when the dead appears the theme seems to be very vivid and detailed. You might even wake up in the morning feeling like you ran a marathon. Contact seems to pull more of your psychic energy out of your body.

It could be quite possible the dead tried to make contact with the others but they never remembered their dream. Unfortunately we lose approximately 90 percent of our dream recall the very first minute we wake up.

The dead may also show up in our dreams when we have unresolved issues from the past, questions about the afterlife, or repressed memories. Did you know that death and dying in dreams is ranked in the top ten most symbolic dreams we can experience.

I dreamt of my deceased brother in law. We were not very close. He passed several years ago. In the dream he appeared young and healthy with a light around him. He gestured with his hands for me to come closer then gestured for me to move to the right quickly. I felt like he was trying to tell me to get moving. But I am unsure why. I woke quickly and I felt scared as though something was wrong.

I keep dreaming with a person that I was intimate with, he recently suicide. When I see him I feel happy, I’m glad to see him. This last one we were in pool and he was at the deep end with his legs over the ledge of the pool and his body in the pool water. I went over to him placed my legs in the same manner and placed my dead on his shoulder and he placed his head on my head. Ugh I woke up after that,

I dreamt my recently deceased father 2 nights ago. He came in a room where my brother, aunt & I were anticipating him. He was smiling, looking happy and much younger than his age at death 88. He then reached out and gave me a bible (one I got from a man I met years ago, who wanted a relationship with me, even though he was married). We became friends, but had to respect his marriage. That bible was given to me years ago with 3 photos of him (friend) in it. So, to see the bible again with photos… Read more »

My children’s father gave me several gifts in my dream but I only remember one distinctly. It was a ceramic antique Victorian mirror with pink flowers all over it. It also had a strange shape and much larger than a hand mirror. The top was squared with rounded edges and the bottom was more of a squared rounded V shape. It had no cords.

I had a dream last night my great grandmother gave me a quarts cross brooch. The Crystal’s were clear and a milky white. The clasp part was gold. She told me her mother gave it to her and now it was mine. My great grandmother was very old when she passed, but in my dream she was probably 30 or 40 dressed in a beautiful 1920 white dress and she had Auburn hair that was pinned up

I’ve always dreamed about my friend who committed suicide. I also liked him and he seemed to be so too. Anyway, I dreamed about him wanting to give me this huge gold ring from his mother and another person gave it to me saying “he wanted to give you this”. I also wore it on my right ring finger.

What could it mean? It confuses me greatly since we weren’t that close compared to his other friends. So i don’t see any personal symbol .

Few nights ago I had a dream of a young guy that passed away more than 15 years ago. I had a crush on him while we were kids, but completely forgot him since I moved to another part of the city. So, in my dream he was very happy and kissed me as we walked through some dirty old hotel. I remember that he told me not to worry, that hotel is maybe old but the things I am about to see are going to be worth it. So I looked out and saw cristal clear ocean with beautiful… Read more »

I dreamt my grandma (died in 2004) and I were in a jewelry store. We were originally looking at diamond stud earrings but she commented about not spending that much money. She was well off in life but fairly frugal. I found some that were oval shaped with half blue and half green stones that I liked better anyway. There were two similar ones of the blue/green and when I decided on a pair, they created a smiley face. I should add, I rarely wear earrings. Grandma had tons of jewelry in life though.

I recently lost my S/O, best friend & soulmate. The night I found out, he came to me in a dream so radiant and happy. He reached out his hand as if he was introducing himself but by the smile on his face and surely the look on mine we knew that we knew each other. I placed mine into his. Nothing was said. Last night he came to me again. This time he brought a ring. Again he said nothing, but he held me in his arms and placed the ring on my right hand, ring finger. His touch… Read more »
