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.

Hey there, Could you please help me in deciphering my dream as well? I saw my grandmother in my dream. She died last year in April and I got married in November last year. What I saw in the dream was that we both were standing and talking in a gurudwara (sikh temple as we practice sikh religion) in our city and I’m wearing the same dress I was wearing on my wedding day. She tells me that she has a gift for me, it’s a pair of shoes that she’s ordered to be made for me and I’ll receive… Read more »

Yesterday I had a dream that a dead friend of mine came and took a silver ring with a blue diamond from me. Then I asked her to give it back because she had gifted to me. I had asked her to keep it for safe keeping. She never gave it back. My friend and her sister both were trying to give me gifts, such as shoes, clothes, and purses. The shoe was oversized. Almost like a size 200!! I did accept the gifts but began to give them back as they were too big. I did give her some… Read more »

Last night, I dreamt that my father who had passed away some years back, was gifting me 4 pairs of Nike shoes. Apparently he’d been out shopping. He first came with 2 pairs and then with the next 2 in a matter of minutes.

Hi,Last night I had a dream of my friend’s father. He passed away (suicide) 2 weeks ago. In my dream we were at his son’s party where he was invited too. When he entered the room everyone asked to take his dark blue/black Blazer but he refused everyone and instead he gave the Blazer to me and said that I was the only one who he could trust to take care of his blazer. After that I woke up. (He hanged himself in the cellar of the house because he couldn’t stand the pain from the cancer anymore) he was… Read more »

My mama passed last October . I dreamt of her last night. She hugged me and told me she loved me and was so proud of me. She handed me a rose, which appeared to be jeweled.
My mama was very petite and shorter than me, but in the dream she was much taller than me when we hugged. Very ethereal . She looked so beautiful and happy . I was ecstatic when I woke.

Hi. Last night I had a dream about my grandma. She passed away in 2007 and I’ve never had a dream like this. She was in her house she had and we were standing in the kitchen. she handed me a small bunch of purple/lilac flowers. They looked a lot like asteopernum (South African Daisy). She hugged me and told me she loved me. It was very vivid. I could feel her and hold her. Smell her and talk to her. We then hugged again in her bedroom before I woke up. I woke up extremely tired and found myself… Read more »

Thank you for the reply. Do you think that she was trying to give me a message? Seems strange after all these years of her passing I suddenly have this dream. I also remember she was wearing a purple cardigan. I only came across this page my chance after searching in google for this dream and I’m so glad I did.

Last night I dreamt a friend who has passed visited me looking great and happy and he gave me 2 brightly colored small trays. About 9 inches long by maybe 4 inches wide. They were stacked together and not wrapped. They were made of melamine. I took them and accidentally dropped one and it went behind a cabinet about hip high. The cabinet was against a wall. There was a cabinet above this cabinet (like in a kitchen but I don’t remember a kitchen in the dream) I leaned across the cabinet to get the tray and started pulling out… Read more »

They were brightly colored yellow with blue and some bits of white. Melamine is more or less unbreakable but looks like breakable pottery. Ironically it was very close to a year after his passing. I think he wanted me to tell his wife he was OK. He had such a visit death.

My sister told me she dreamt my deceased father and I visited her and gave her a Birthday card or gift. She asked me where was our mother(still living) and she said I told her Mom didn’t come but when we were leaving, she walked us to the door and saw that my Mom car was pulling out of her driveway. Do you know what could this mean? Thanks

Last night I dreamt that I was looking for my grandmother near her home and when I finally found her, she was wearing scrubs like nurses do, in a nursing home I believe, handing out water. She looked at me and handed me a glass of water also. I smiled at her and it made me feel good to see her helping others the way I do, and took it. I’m an empath and very receptive to messages from the deceased, they come to me often, this particular dream though I can’t decipher for some reason….

A friend of mine told me of his dream about our close friend (who also happened to be our colleague) who unexpectedly died almost 3 months ago. She is like a mother to us but I can say that my friend is like her “favorite son.” My friend said that in his dream, we are all busy doing work that time, he got message from her and suddenly our dead friend entered the room and everyone was so surprised because we all know she died. My friend said that he was crying in his dream and our friend approached him,… Read more »
