Dreaming of A Mother Who Has Passed Away

Below is a dream that was recently left on the blog to be analyzed and interpreted. I felt many others could benefit from the dream, so I’m sharing it below.

Hello my name is Delandra and I am 25 Years old I recently lost my mother and I am now beginning to have dreams of her dieing again .Some of the things in my dream are kinda weird. There is one dream that I had where I was fussing wit my uncle about something and he follows me into the house and I end up underneath him and he place a gun in my chest and begins to pull the trigger but while i’m screaming for help the bullets are just blanks and then i’m where someone gets a phone call from my grandmother telling them that my mother is dead and i begin to scream and cry and I wake u wit tears in my eyes as if i am crying but i really was crying. Can u explain this to me please?

First of all, I’m terribly, terribly sorry about your mother. 25 is unbelievably young to lose a parent. I’m profoundly sorry and hope you have a good number of people around you to help with the months and even years ahead. As someone who has walked the dark road you’re now facing, I can tell you that you have to take your time and heal – give yourself patience and time.  You can’t lose someone you had your whole life and not feel the loss for a very, very long time.

During such a horrible lose, our brains (understandably) have a  difficult time processing and making sense out of what has happened. How do you make peace with something so outrageously unfair and heartbreaking?  During the day, while we’re in the grieving process, we often “busy” our minds.  It’s a coping strategy and one that everyone recommends…. “Keep busy” – how many times do we hear that?

We do the best we can to keep our mind occupied while we’re awake, but when we’re asleep, the mind tries to make sense of the loss the best it can.  It’s extremely common to dream about people we have lost, especially in the first weeks and months after the loss.  When the loss hits particularly close to home, we often think about our own death.  This explains your dream.  While your mind is trying to wrap itself around your horrible loss, it’s also sorting out fears you may have about your own mortality.

Take very good care of yourself during the coming months and get plenty of rest.  Your dreams will be a better place to be very soon.  Again, I’m very sorry for your loss.
