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 very loving Uncle who was just like my father. He passed away two years ago. He comes in my dream where I am a leading organizer in my childhood school. He looks a bit sad but very pleasant. his eyes are a bit red though. He gifts me this beautiful traditional expensive male dress. Though I am a female. I accept it right away. And he is amazed and thankful to me for accepting. As if it was a burden on him that I have lifted. I am a bit confused but happy about the gift… Read more »

I had a dream years ago about my Grandmother, who passed 8 years ago and she was giving me shoes, telling me to take them, I will need them.. Needless to say I didn’t take them… She was the BEST Grandmother to me. Did I screw up, by not taking the shoes?

They were her old shoes. Black shoes. She insisted I take them, I will need them. At the time I remember, my husband and I were having trouble.. I took the meaning she was trying to tell me something, perhaps I should leave him. And run!!! We are still together, just always think of that dream and try and understand what she was telling me. She was the kind of Grandmother that gave me great advise. We were like bestfriends.

I had a vivid dream last night about my grandmother (father’s mother)who passed 8 years ago. She was my most cherished family member And the only one I ever felt truly loved by. I was in a bedroom distraught and in an argument with my mother who I have always had a strained relationship with. My grandmother appeared behind my mother, who could not see her… I was more shocked than ever in my waking life, and she silently walked around my mother into the room and gave me a small wooden elephant figurine painted pretty pastel lilac with worn… Read more »

I had a dream of a very close deceased friend that was giving me money but I did not know what it was for. Though I asked, it was just given to me and no strings attached. It was first time that he had ever given me anything.

I had a dream that my aunt was giving me some gifts for my birthday that were from my nana who passed away over 10 years ago .
One was a pen that was my nana’s but it looked like it got refurbished. It was wrapped in a silk handkerchief that had writing on it but I can’t remember what it said really. My aunt told me she didn’t have money to gift me so she gave me these things.

I had a dream about my Uncle (my fathers brother) who died a few years back. The dream was in my house but my house was bigger and different in some aspects. My uncle had just been released from hospital, his wife was with him ( they had a bad relationship and she was in a different country when he died and didn’t come to the funeral but he offered to pay for her to get to the funeral she refused, he also made sure she didn’t receive any money after that.) I was told to make sure the sofa… Read more »

Her hair was like coloured long ribbon with shiny gold and her clothes all bright and colourful.

I saw all my living relatives to the right of me all happy and colourful… Read more »

She isn’t my friend, she is from my community, I attended primary school with her and her two younger brothers, we all were in the same class though she was far older than us. She use to sell friend yam before she died. I heard she slumped and died. We weren’t close and I don’t have bad feelings for her.

I had a dream of a girl I dated in high school 2008. She passed away 2 or 3 years ago. In the dream we were dating again. In high school I was too shy to kiss her and we really never got the chance to actually go out places and just saw each other at school. In the dream we were kissing and going to different places and having fun and the last part I remember is going on a vacation with her and right before I woke up she said I’m mad at you.

I don’t I remember there being another guy I think I was getting a bit jealous but not for sure. To me our relationship in high school was good until she would stop answering my calls or texts. We broke up because she said problems with her parents. I felt like I did connect with her because I got to do all the things with her I didnt in high school and I woke up feeling refreshed and like a weight gone. Well we were at a school or some kind of building then a stadium or auditorium and on… Read more »

Thank you so much for replying :). I was wondering if the dream had some relation with my current relationship. Could it be associated with my relationship in anyway. I was thinking about my partner and our relationship a lot that night.
