How Spirits Communicate in Our Dreams

Why is it, when spirits appear in dreams and communicate with us, they don’t actually speak or move their mouths?

This often happens for me. Maybe it has happened to you before too. Many clients have shared similar experiences, where a deceased loved one visits them in their dreams.

The experience feels incredibly real (because it is!) and we wake up with a deep knowing of their presence with us. But this presence is an energy – not a physical body. It’s their eternal soul self, the God spark within that transcends space and time and death as we know it.

When spirits appear to us, it’s common for them to take on the appearance of their old body at whatever age they choose to recreate. Not for their need, but for our own sense of familiarity and comfort.

But, just like what I experience when I do my readings, they don’t rely on their body to communicate their messages. Rather they send an impression of energy into our mind and body. This comes in the form of our thoughts and feelings. It’s a telepathic way of communicating their messages to us. And it does not require a mouth or vocal chords to accomplish their goal.

My dad often appears to me in my dreams, and we have lengthy and meaningful conversations, only he never moves his mouth and I don’t physically hear him. Rather I see him, and feel and know his messages as he telepathically communicates with me.

When we return to spirit and settle back into our home on the other-side, we too will no longer have use for a body. We’ll once again rely on our natural way of communicating and connecting with other spiritual beings.

In some ways, it’s no different than how we communicate with our pets in life. They don’t use words to talk to us, yet any of us animal-lovers know we have strong relationships and ongoing dialogues with these special souls. We just rely more on feelings – the universal language – to establish and maintain those connections.

The same goes for our loved ones in spirit.

So the next time your deceased loved one visits you – be it in a dream or meditation – and you feel their messages communicated to you as perceived by your mind, trust those feelings. They’re just as much, if not more real, than any words they may have once used while in a body.
