Deceased Relative Alive Again and Singing In Dream

I had a dream years ago that stuck with me and is as clear in my head now, as it ever was. My great grandmother, who was very much a part of my life, passed away when I was 15 years old. It was a big deal because she played a large part in my life. She helped raise me and I admired her very very much. I had this dream some time after her death that we were all in this room, one that I am familiar with in the dream but I don't know where it is at. I am in the room and my great grandmother is and so are her 2 sisters ( my grandma and my great aunt). Everyone's sad because she has passed away, but she wakes up while she is sitting there and she doesn't say anything, but she begins to sing. She seems so calm and it made all of us so happy. She was alive again and singing to us! We were happy and crying as well. But before the dream ends, my grandmother has gone back to sleep, passed away or gone to heaven again. I just want to know what this dream means. I feel like it was to put me at peace with what was going on and maybe her letting me know that she was ok and not to worry. My great grandmother was a very religous, christian woman and before she passed away and the long lived age of 82, she had told me she was ready to go and o be in heaven. She even told me she was not scared and to promise her I'd see her there. Anyways, does anyone have any insight into this dream that has stuck with me until now ( I am 22 now)? Anyone shared any mutual experiences??

My grandmother passed away when I was 14 years old. It was the first time I dealt with death. I had no clue about death but I did want to see her in a dream. Each day I’d ask but when night time arrived I’d change my mind. As I became an adult I often wondered, “How did I know to ask to see her in a dream?” It wasn’t until after her funeral that out of the blue she appeared in my dream with her deceased brother who I really didn’t know. He passed when I was a toddler. I was so excited to have seen her in my dream and I knew that she was fine! I keep her alive in my heart to this day. If I think of it any other way I wouldn’t be able to function. I don’t often dream about her since years past. <br />
<br />
However last year I wondered did she still see me as her grand-daughter (being that it was so many years ago). As quickly as the thought came I let it go. Low and behold about 4 months later my grandmother shows up in one of my dreams. She was filled with so much energy. I don’t recall dreaming of anything like it. I couldn’t even describe it and I still can’t. She just radiated! It was rather strong! These were her words to me, “Yes I am still your grandmother….” She told me several other things but she answered my question which amazed me. How did she know I asked it in my head or had doubt? Of course I woke up in such an AWESOME mood! I smiled from ear to ear ALL day from her visit me and to know “I’m still her grand-daughter and that she sees what’s going on in my life.”

You had a wonderful dream! You had a visit from you grandmother letting you know that she is doing just fine! The place you were at that is familiar in the dream but not in real life tells me you traveled back ‘Home’ in your sleep. I think you dream is somewhat literal, “Everyone’s sad because of her passing (of course).” But she wakes up while she is sitting there…meaning she’s alive again. Her singing is that of joy. Your description of her mood I believe matches her joyful mood on the other side. Her going back to sleep is what you described as well. The intention of the dream was to do exactly what you felt: put you at peace. The reason you remember the dream so well is because you’re not to forget…they are doing fine. They’ve returned Home.

I not sure why the dream has stayed with you but I can relate.<br />

Ok so my Grandfather died when I was very little At that time I didnot know what death was. Everyone was crying at his funeral and all I could think of was that he was somwhere esle, in a better place. When I saw his face for the last time at the funeral I thought he looked like he was only sleepping. I knew I sould mourn for him but he looked so happy. <br />
<br />
Latter in my life I felt guitly for not moruning his death like I should of. But one night I had a dream about him. We were at his house, in his living room. He asked me if I wanted to go outside on the swing. I said yes. We then walked together to his swings. The whole dream I knew he was dead but I didn't care. I just sat on the swing and yelpped with joy when he gave me a big push to get me going. <br />
<br />
Latter I woke up feeling odd. I didn't feel sad like I should but kinda nice. Like when you smell sweet flowers after a spring rain.<br />
<br />
To this day I remember that dream.
