I usually do not dream or at least I do not remember my dreams, but I have had 2 brief but distinct dreams in the last couple weeks and I would love to know what they mean. The first I dreamt of my father, who passed away 21 years ago as of Dec. 7th, we were in a room and he was standing there with a red heart shaped box (like those you see around Valentines Day)

The second I was in church and my grandmother along with other family members showed up at my church with me. My grandmother passed about a year and a half ago. What is the significance of these two dreams??? Please help.

In answering a question posed by FascinatedbyDreams, I do not recall any verbal communication with my dad or grandmother. I would love to speak to them in my dreams. I am actually suprised I rememebered anything at all usually I do not remember them. I recently began going to church again. I had a few negative experiences with a few churches I visited and decided to try another, I like very well. I am trying to grow spiritually and find my spiritual path with God at this time (another note for Fascinated...)

I was just thinking of another dream I had shortly after my grandmother and aunt (who died within days of one another) - they were both singing the most beautiful hymn to me in my dream - one I had never heard before. I wish I could remember the words to this beautiful song.

I think your dream is showing you that you family members still love you (heart box). Do you attend church often or highly spiritual? That’s perhaps why it showed your family going to your church. It could be that they are proud of your spirituality or involvement in the church. Overall I think it’s their way of saying they are around and aware of what’s going on in your life. It sounds like a good dream. Did any of them say anything in the dream? This would lead to clues as to what specifically they wanted you to know besides that they love you very much. I hope this helps!

I had a wonderful Dream. I barely remember my freams but I could tell you everything about this one maybe its because It was of people I love I have lost my family members one by one. My beautiful grandmother aunts uncles great grandparents ripped one by one out of my life. Why? My dream was of my grandmother and my uncle her youngest son. She died when he was at her bedside. She waited for him. He passed away a couple of years ago from Cancer. I was sitting by a hospital bed she was healthy though, and my uncle came walking in with his hair all grown back and happy. What does it mean. Are they trying to tell me they are together happy and healthy again? I wish I could have that dream every night? It was right after I went to the cemetary and visited them. But where is everyone else?
