After you’ve lost someone truly special in your life, have you felt like they visited you in a dream? That visit may have actually been what is called a “visitation dream”.
They are very rare!
Like many other parts about the brain, we do not know much about visitation dreams. Some experts are beginning to search and find out more about these “visitation dreams”.
In an article for Psychology Today, Patrick McNamara Ph.D wrote that many visitation dreams have common characteristics that they share. One is how the deceased is portrayed in most visitation dreams and the other is what emotions the dreamer feels when they’re visited. Dr. McNamara writes that the deceased often appear like they did when they were healthy, as opposed to ill.
“in fact the deceased often appeared much younger or more healthy than when they died. The deceased conveyed reassurance to the dreamer. ‘I am OK and still with you’ This message tended to be conveyed telephatically or mentally rather than via spoken word. Visitation dreams are typically clear, vivid, intense, and are experienced as real visits when the dreamer awakens.” — Patrick McNamara, Ph.D
