Dreaming of a deceased grandparent

Dreaming of a deceased grandparent

Dear Janet Louise,
A day or so after my nana’s passing, I had a dream I was sitting on the end of my bed talking to her. She said to tell my mum that her cat Tigga was with her (Tigga had gone missing months before Nana passed away). My nana had a blue aura around her and she seemed very happy. The next morning when I woke it felt so real, as if I really had had a conversation with her.

Dear Vika,
What an absolutely beautiful dream. Very often these types of dreams occur when a loved one has passed over. To dream of your nana talking to you and to have specific details, such as her cat, with her represents the fact that her spirit is finally free and you are very well taken care of and protected from heaven. To see a blue aura surrounding your nana is symbolic of her asking you to stop “feeling blue”. Clear your mind and utilise all your energy toward your future with strength and optimism. You have so much love, devotion and wisdom in your being to give so live it and share it.
