Years ago I was told that whenever we dream of someone who has passed (including our pets), that it is an actual visit from them through the spiritual realm and that they enter through our dreams because that is when our guards are down and we are most open to such a possibility. I suppose I will never know if this is true, but I do enjoy the thought of it.
Last night my mother and I had the most beautiful visit and it was filled with more love than any visit we had in waking life. She was living in my old apartment (the one I lived in previous to my current home of 11 years) and I was aware of how different our relationship felt. It felt healthy and good for the first time ever.
And she had baked me a homemade butter tart pie (she must have learned that butter tarts are my newest addiction) and I was so moved by this. When I hugged her and thanked her I felt more love for her than I ever have in my life (not because of a simple pie but because things had fundamentally shifted). It felt like the kind of love I have for Paige and for Melanie and I even gave the finger to a guy in the dream that had not properly acknowledged her gift. FYI it was Anders from Workaholics (so random haha!!).
Since my mom passed in 2009, I have dreamed of her maybe 3 times, if that. And I honestly hoped that she would never visit me because I just wanted our relationship to be over for eternity after all we endured while she was in my life.
That being said, last night's visit was unexpected and beautifully heartwarming and it filled my heart with love both in the dream and upon awakening.
So Mom, if you're really out there, thank you for the butter tart pie.
With lotsa love from your girl,
