Have you ever happened to dream your loved ones who died visiting you in your dream? Well, these dreams are also knows as “visitation dreams”. Every time after these dreams you probably ask yourself why you have that visit? Are your loved ones who aren’t live any more want to send you some message?

The first reason why we see deceased people in our dream, guides or angels is that we are “in between place“, between our Earthly reality and “the other side of the veil” called spiritual world.

It is interesting to know that our rational mind and our ego aren’t engaged so when we see in our dream someone who died we aren’t aware of that and accept the presence of that person without arguments.

Visitation dreams are always a mystery and hard to interpret, so in this article we will help you to understand them in a right way and make a difference between them and regular dreams.

What are visitation dreams and why do we have them?

This kind of dreams are called hyper-intensive dream where you see a deceased soul or your loved one. People who have these dreams claim that the dream was so intensive like it is reality and could remember vivid details.

For those who are opened and aren’t afraid of the experience of this kind can find the answers, closure or insight to that soul in real life.

Visitation dreams are possible because in sleeping state our five senses and ego are having rest. In this condition we are able to tap into the sixth sense and intuition in order to allow this communication to happen.

On the other hand, when awake, most of the people just disconnect to their spirit and block coming intuitive information.

Besides that, a lot of people are unable to define relationship with the “source” and “freak out” so they aren’t opened to hear and understand messages or see visuals.

There are three reasons why these dreams happen:

-A soul needs closure and express feelings to get the answer or resolve something that happened in real life;

-Your loved one recently passed. The purpose of his or her presence in you dream is to show you his or her soul is fine.

-A ghost visits you just to visit. That happens when death person is on your mind so he or she pops up in order to show you presence or make your memories of them stronger. These dreams also happen to people who are grieving and the ghost is sending you a message that everything is okay.

How to make a difference between visitation dreams and common dreams?

The main characteristic of real visitation dream is that it involves clear communication from beyond the physical. This kind of dream even doesn’t have to be in words and it is often completely telepathic.

Presence of the spirit in your dream will clearly and to the point convey the appropriate message.

Visitation dream isn’t long. It is often simple, to the point, it is powerful and incredibly real and then it is gone.

In these dreams you will feel true visitations from the special spirit and deep in your heart you will know the dream was a real communication.

On the other hand, common dreams are easy to forget and a true visitation dream is real and vivid and you will remember it for the rest of your life.

It is important to know that you don’t have always visitation dream even if you see your death ones there. In order to make the difference between common and visitation dreams you should think of your dream as a movie.

The subconscious mind is a director that selects who plays each role. For example, that can be a role of a victim so maybe your loved one who died was once a victim in some situation. Or your mind asks for a role of a parent so you feel the presence of your death mother or father.

Your subconscious considers all the people you have known during your life and even those that you consciously can’t remember any more and selects those who are the best actor for specific role.

Sometimes the actor is alive and sometimes is death person. The point is to have “the best person for the job”.

Characteristics of true visitation dreams

You will make the difference between true visitation dreams and common ones if you know the following:

Visitation dream brings the feeling of reality and is very vivid.

Compared to common dream, you will remember visitation dream for days very clearly and probably till the end of your life.

Simply, if you aren’t sure if the visitation dream was really a visitation dream, then probably that wasn’t a visitation dream. This dream looks so real and vivid that you will be 100% sure you had it.

The soul that visited you in a dream will be completely healthy and will behave in a loving manner. It is rare to see it in sick or injured condition in real visitation dream. It will never be depressed, punishing, disappointed or angry. It will be “perfect” because it is reconnected with God/Source energy.

When the spirit communicates with you no matter if it does verbally or non-verbally, it isn’t because it wants to engage in idle “chit-chat”. Your deceased loved ones come to your dream always with a purpose to convey a clear message and then to go.

No matter if it communicated to you verbally or non-verbally, the soul that visited you will communicate very clearly.

Usually the message you get from the death visitor has the characteristic of “reassurance”. The soul comes to let you know it is fine and it wants you to be happy. Rarely it will come with a warning, but if that happens the soul will give you loving support and you will feel reassured by its presence.

After this kind of dream, when you wake up you will always feel love and peace.

What to do after the visitation dream?

In order to interpret the dream in a right way it is important to write down all the details you remember. It will be useful when looking back at your spiritual growth.

The next thing is to analyze the dream. Did you see some key insights or assurances to questions you had? Ask yourself if you can find rest knowing your deceased loved one is fine?

We are complex beings and we have to be aware that our layers of emotions get jumbled with the ego.

You shouldn’t be afraid of these dreams. Try to be open when visitation dream happens and that will lead to the right understanding of signs our deceased ones are sending.

Souls sometimes come to our dreams to show us there is life after death where others return as a spirit guide.

Remember that all the answers are within you and your intuition. You are the only person who can interpret the meaning of the dream and the presence of the ghost you saw there.


Visitation dreams are incredibly real, simple with the clear message sent by our deceased loved ones. In the most of the cases that communication is focused on reassurance, healing, forgiveness or your loved ones want to tell you they are ok.

It rarely happens, but if they have some warning for you, it will be also to the point and backed with reassurance and feeling of love and support and you will be filled with those feelings after you wake up.

You will be aware that you’ve been visited by your loved one who is a spirit now. These are signs that you had a real visitation dream and that your deceased loved one is fine sending you reassurance, love and support beyond the physical.
