From time to time I'll have a dream in which I try to experience every aspect of it, as opposed to trying to understand/interpret it. This is one such dream, which I had last night.

The best way for me to tell this is for me to take the position that everything in this dream is capital "t' Truth... that this is how it actually is. In this way, I can cut a very long dream short and just share the experiences.

In this dream, I had died of unnatural causes. At first, I was totally unaware that I was dead, but once I figured it out (with the help of a man whose purpose was to help me come to terms with the fact that I was dead), I began to cry, and cry and cry. At some point, as he was talking to me, I realized that I was dreaming... I told myself that this was only a dream and I HAD to wake up. So I did, BUT I woke up in the dream... as if I was having a dream within a dream. And still I was crying.

I was in a house with many other people, of all ages. A woman asked me why I was crying so much and I replied, "because I didn't get to say good-bye to my daughter." As soon as I had said that, I realized that my daughter was also crying... she was mourning my death as much as I was in mourning (not about my death but about not having a chance to have said good-bye to her). The woman told me not to cry because she would be with me again "soon enough."

::: Now I'm going to leave out all the details of the dream and just state my experiences. And remember, I'm going to be stating this as if it were fact. :::::

When you die, you don't realize it right away. There is no instant transformation from physical to spiritual.

You mourn just as badly, and as deeply, as those you leave behind. You have all the same emotions, thoughts, feelings, sensations, etc. when you die. (These change "over time" [and there is no concept of time in the spiritual world] until you reach a point when the only emotion you have left is love.)

At some point, you become aware that your body is beginning to decay and as you watch that happen you also see that you have a new body being formed. The new body has the most radient skin (but it's not flesh as we know it). You also realize that this is not your permanent "new body." There are many layers and you lose them as you move on to different levels. With each new level of awareness your body becomes less and less physical and more and more pure energy.

Transformation takes place over time... depending on how long it takes for you to let go of those you left behind AND on how long it takes for your loved ones to let go of you.

As I mentioned, I was in a house with many other people. The house and the people in it seemed to be of upper-middle class. At one point, I was told that we are "born into" the same life style we left, since this is the easiest way for us to make the transition from physical world to spiritual world.

The people in this house are your "soul family." There is someone there who will help you to come to terms with your death (especially if you die suddenly) and other people who will help you to make the transition. You are definitely not alone. And everyone in your house plays some sort of role in your transformation, as well as in your next life -- if you decided to reincarnate again.

This was one of the most profound dreams I've ever experienced. I have not tried to interpret it, yet.... and I'm not sure that I should even try to find any hidden meanings in this one.

comments... thoughts.... ?????

Cool dream but I would rather cross on over if you don't mind. But you brought up some interesting thoughts about the journey. Staying and watching others cry, if they do, would be horrible for me. Maybe this is saying that whenever we die we should have a party to celebrate our life instead of mourning our death. People might be less likely to be crying so much and this might bring closure for some, and we could ALL move on quicker. What goes on beyond that is fine. Like ....did you have any other choices?

This is just the feeling I am getting from what I read, too much sadness. But what do I know? I am still looking for the inner cat Smile

Sounds like you've had a truly profound experience. Given the deaths you've experienced (and mourned) in the past few years I would imagine this supports you in completing your release of them as well as hopefully bringing you more peace in their transitioning.

I wouldn't "interpret" a dream such as this either. It's experiential, not symbollic, and you clearly know that. I would resist the urge to set the experience in stone (universal)...as in this is how it always happens. Truth (capital "T") is so in a given moment, in a given dimension... Yesterday's Truth may well be todays myth. Just a thought...
