Two weeks ago I received a dreamtime visit from my deceased mother (you can read about it here) and it was filled with more love than my mother and I ever experienced together while she was alive. In it, our relationship felt completely healed. All was well and I woke up with a smile.
Last night's dream however, marked my mom's funeral. It was a teary and an emotional experience.
For those who don't know, I chose not to have a funeral after my mother passed in 2009. Instead, we celebrated her life with dinner and dancing to her favourite music. I named the event, "Mama's Groove", since my mother loved dancing just as much as I do, and the DJ played "Spirit in the Sky" in her honour.
I had never been to a funeral before my mom died and I didn't want to hers to be my first. My only regret in not having one for her is that her best friend, Brian, who passed last year (you can read about that sacred experience here), probably did not get the closure he needed and deserved. I felt so at peace with her death because of the healing that took place as I spent the final week with her 24/7, that I did not realize or take into account that Brian did not receive the same gift. He lost his bestest friend while I gained peace and resolution.
In last night's dream I was in tears as I tried to pick out what small token I might drop into my mother's casket. There was a collection of treasures on top of a dresser, and I wanted to select something that would mean the most and best reflect our connection. This was the extent of the dream. All I knew it that it was my mother's funeral and that my heart was hurting.
To dream of a funeral represents the death of some aspect of ourselves, our life, a situation, or even the ending of a relationship. It also signifies the transition into a new state of being. It means we are ready to bury what no longer serves us and that is a great thing. It's a powerful message worth celebrating. That being said, each dream message is custom-made for us so only you know what feels most aligned for you.
I don't know if it was my mother I said goodbye to last night or something related to our dynamic or something else entirely, but I felt the immensity of this release as it was happening.
I spent the morning in the forest and noted that a significant internal weight had been lifted. It felt like a brand new day filled with so much possibility. Of course every day is a brand new gift, but today felt especially so.
Mom, I hope you liked what I chose for you.
All my love,
