Since losing my mum in March, i often dream about her. In my dreams she is alive though often this confuses myself and all around as we know she is dead, in the dream. Last night i had the strangest dream - I dreamt that i was with her and we were both crying and i was takling to her about my other dreams where i knew she wasn't really alive. I was saying to her that i didn't know if i was imagining her there or if she was really there and hugging her- in a way i was dreaming about my other dreams. Apart from this one, in all the others she has been quite mean - completely not how she was. It is almost as though somebody else's personality is in her body, which is horrible.

Obviously most people probably dream about loved ones who passed away but what i find strange is that in my dreams she is there when i know she shouldn't be, and often what is happening/happened in my life since losing her is going on around her.

It would be lovely if somebody could shed a light on the unusual nature of these dreams, Thanks.

You may have noticed, around the time of her death .. of any death, often close family go through very difficult, negative emotional states - mean and angry etc -

Death is like moving house after (usually) a long residence. Everything has to be cleaned and cleared out. If you were very close to your mum it may be that you are one she can trust to help with this process, and stuff that she never expressed in life but which was stored in her mortal bodies (physical, mental, emotional, energetic) is now being released, and your energy is assisting her in staying focused. You are being 'a healer' or midwife. It makes perfect sense that you two would 'meet' in a more 'real' way to connect over this. In most lives all this backed-up emotion represents millions of missed opportunities.. that may be the root of the tears, or just the peace of the love between you. Stay strong and clear, eat healthily and drink plenty of water, and try not to think about your mum much (don't suppress, just don't 'make' thoughts about her), let this pass around and through without holding on to anything in particular. Stay yourself.
