Dreams About Dead Children
Did my dead son communicate through a dream?
QUESTION: I was prompted to write having recently read your readers post about her vision of a heavenly garden. A similar experience happened to me.
In December 1993 my twenty-year-old son Matthew was accidentally killed in Northern Ireland. Soon afterward I felt his presence around me and this feeling lasted for a few months.
Nearly a year after his death I visited my friends in the North of England. It was the first time I had left home since Matthew’s death. There was soon to be a Court Marshall Enquiry.
Whilst on holiday I had a vivid dream. I was looking through some railings and could see flowing green grass and a chestnut tree. Stood nearby was my son dressed in his military uniform. He looked across at me and smiled then sat down under the tree. He said nothing. I just observed him and felt immersed in the joyful peace of that place.

Dreams may be a spirit contacting from the beyond
As a medium I have of course spent a great deal of time comforting the bereaved. Many people describe similar dreams to yours that often happen about a year after their loss. Some psychologist may argue that these dreams are symbolic of the resolving of your bereavement. I would take things one step further: your son showed you, by means of a dream, that he is at peace.

And here’s a new video about of some of my work contacting the spirit world. Here I am asked about the difference between a psychic reading and a mediumistic reading. (You are also welcome to ask me questions about this on this thread too)
