Q: My dream came just about one year after my husband died. We were in what seemed to be a school and I was filling out papers. He was walking down a hallway with another man. I had to finish the papers and he was getting further away. I called to him to wait and he made a motion with his hand for me to stay. I said I want to come with you and he said, ""No."" All I could see was his back. There was a door at the end of the hallway. It was bright, light sunlight.

A: This dream is your unconscious crying out, "I love you, I grieve over you and I want to follow you." Very often widows or widowers have these connections to their loved ones even though they've died. During sleep, the soul travels to a school representing a spiritual plane and the classroom is the setting of spiritual learning. School also represents separation anxiety from loved ones. Going back to childhood, think of those kindergarten days when mommy wasn't there. As adults we still carry those feelings of loneliness and insecurity into adulthood. Filing papers means, I'm signing up for the school my husband is in. Feeling a sense of urgency you were compelled to hurry the process along as your husband got further away. You cried out, "Wait!" meaning take me with you. He motioned you stay, it's not your time. The other man probably was someone you both knew who passed, too. Psychically I'm getting your husband was communicating his unending love and concern for your well being. He actually showed you, "See, I'm O.K." The brightness of the light at the end of the door, represents the stairway to heaven. Please don't be sad. You have experienced the ultimate communication even after death.
Q: I had three dreams about my 17-year-old niece who died Jan. 1. Her body was not found until Jan. 20. Before she was found, I had a dream she came to me and asked for help. A few days later. I had a dream about my deceased father-in-law who was cooking for God … it was a big celebration. After we heard they found my niece, my dream was of my mother who was dead. She was taking a baby from my sister, my niece's mother. My sister was willingly giving the baby (who represents my deceased niece) to my mom. Can you tell me if I was near the truth?

A: Theses three dreams are significantly tied together. You are psychic and should explore your sixth sense. Seeing the future in dreams is very common. People just don't talk about it. Your niece implored you for your help a couple of weeks before her body was found. How could we know these things, one might ask? Simple. We all have the ability to be in touch with the future, we just don't know how to tap into it. The dream state opens our spirits and minds to precognitive messages. Your dead father was celebrating the arrival of your niece. The baby was your niece, given to your already deceased mother. Your sister gave her willingly, knowing she was in safe hands. Your loving family is together on the other side. You were given the wonderful gift of being witness to their profound happiness.
