Christmas Hugs

Q: Dream Doctor, I'm a widow. My husband passed 2 days before Christmas. I had a dream when he was still being laid out in the funeral home that he came to me and we kissed and hugged in our bed It was so real. I could feel his warmth and hear his voice so clearly. I've gone to a bereavement group and the other widows and widowers told me they had the same experience. Is it our imaginations?

Candace S. Belmar A: These kinds of dreams occur very often. It's not your imagination People rarely talk about them. Society would think they were off balance. I've read for many people who have lost their spouses, and I've received messages from their loved ones from the other side. In the readings the the details of the dreams come through. I believe the spirits make contact in your dream state. The connection is still there even after the physical body dies. When two people are joined together in a deeply spiritual union, the person who's passed over will come through in a dream or a psychic reading. I will also say that wishful dreaming may occur. Whereas the dreamer wants this experience so badly that a lovely encounter will come in the form of "just a dream" But, if you feel the presence of your loved one was overwhelming. Psychically I would say you experienced the real thing. Q: My dream is one of great joy and happiness. But it's always with the same women I don't know. Currently I'm not in a relationship. What does this mean?

Frank T. Freehold A: You are having a classic romantic dream. Unconsciously you want this wonderful woman in your life, and your dreams are a way of making you aware of supressed emotions. You say you're not currently in a relationship. Psychically I feel you will be. Interesting that you don't know who this woman is. That's great. If you were dreaming of a past love you would still be stuck in the past. This dream is affording you the chance to wipe the slate clean and start anew. Happiness is just around the corner. Your dream is telling you you're ready to share your life.Please call me when it happens.

I want to wish all my readers a blessed holiday and a harmonious New Year.
