Dreaming of the dead can be both rewarding and terrifying depending the context of the dream. There seem to be a fine line between actual contact or repressed memories or emotions that have come back to pay you a visit. The dead bring us valuable messages from beyond the grave for you to decode; known to smile, hug us and even talk to us. If your dead loved ones have brought you a gift it contains a coded message. Are you dreaming of your dead mother, dead father, dead grandmother, or grandfather?
