Do you dream about your mom?

Just wondering if you all have dreams about your mom. My Mom passed away August 2008 when I was 8.5 months pregnant. I don't remember if I dreamed about her before my son was born, but I realized at some point awhile ago that since my son was born she was never in my dreams. Recently (like in just the past few months) I've started dreaming about her and it's wierd. IN the dreams, it's like it is present day and she is alive, playing with my son and stuff. I kind of think I didn't dream about her before because I was completely sleep deprived (having a newborn and all) and now that I'm resting better I am dreaming again. It's comforting to see her again in my dreams but it's unsettling in a way too. Just wondering what your experiences have been.

I dreamt of my mom shortly after she passed away. I had a very vivid dream of walking in a very peaceful setting with her. We didn't talk but it was very calming. I also had another very vivid dream shortly after she passed and in it she was lecturing me about drinking. I went through a period of heavy partying trying to cope and it was one particularly bad night that I had that dream. I think I have had a few dreams of her more recently too (she passed in 03) but they are never as vivid. I truly feel she really comes to me in my dreams. I know it sounds crazy but I don't think they are JUST dreams, I really think on some level she is still with me.

My mom passed away when I was 18, I am now almost 42. I have missed her so much especially for my wedding, birth of my children, my divorce, my remarriage. As I sit her this Mother's Day I still feel jipped for not having her in my life. Don't get me wrong I love celebrating Mother's Day for my kids but it's just not the same. As far as my dreams- yes I have dreamt that she had to fake her death and I woke up laughing only to realize it was a dream. I mostly will dream of her when I am really overwhelmed or stressed or depressed about something. In my dream I can never talk to her she is just there with her little wave that she did and a smile on her face. That wave I take for her telling me to keep my head up and she is alway's here. I woke from that dream feeling better and couldn't believe how real it was and how it was so detailed clear down to this purple sweatsuit she used to always wear. It gave me such peace of mind.

My Mom was a very good Mom, she was also my best friend, and she passed away in 2004. I believe that my mom actually visits me in my dream. The reason I believe that is because she alway's knew that on some level, I do have a fear of death. When she comes to me its always during a drama filled dream, and she is always the one who calms every thing down. Also, every time she has warned me of something, it came true.

My mom passed away alittle over two years ago. When she first passed I would dream of her all the time. I keep having this one dream over and over. I go into a house and there she is. She sits me down and tells me that she is really a live and that she faked her death for one reason or another, and she goes on to cook a big meal like she always did and then play with my daughter. I never want to wake up from these dreams, they seem so real, but when I do reality sinks in and I begin to cry.

Yes, I dream of my mom often. Sometimes more than other times. I think probably more when I am needing her most, when I am stressed with life or feeling ill or worried, I will dream of her. And like you, I dream that it is present day and she is talking to me and it is very comforting to be near her. I don't think of her as a god, but I do think highly of her and believe she left a lasting legacy to follow. My mother is and always will be my hero.

I never really had my mom around growing up, I was in different foster homes. But I recently found out that she had passed on about 2 years ago. This was very upsetting for me because I had been trying to find her for years to meet her again. When I found out I started having horrible nightmares about her. I don't want to say what happened in them, cause the thought of them makes me cry. Slowly the nightmares are less frequent. I do have them occasional when I think about her during the day or wish I knew her. I think I have them mostly because my son will never know his grandmother or any of my family side and that hurts my heart.

My mom died in 1993 when I was 18. I have only had two dreams about her since. Both dreams she was out of reach in a literal sense ... just across a river, just behind a door ... I haven't had any other dreams and I'm a bit thankful. I think I would feel too disturbed if I dreamt of her often.

Amy,
my mom passed in 2007 and I miss her so much too. I dream of my mom now and then and it is always emotional and wonderful. I truly think it's my mom staying in touch with me. It's nothing to fear and something to enjoy and relish. Take care and I hope you have a wonderful 2010

My mom passed away April 2008. I have dreamed of her since, not in a little while though. It is bitter sweet. I dreamed once that she was BACK! I was like oh my gosh! In my dream I was confused, I told her I thought she was dead, and knew I had been to her funeral. Then she told me know, she just went away, she didn't die, and that she was back or something like that. I didn't want to have any more after that one. It was so disturbing. I was so happy thinking she was alive, and it was all a mistake, then I woke up felling excited, then I looked around realized I was dreaming and what off, and it was so so, I can't think of a word. I just know I was hurt.

My mom passed away on the 27th of July 2005 from breast cancer. I do dream about her, I go through stages where I'll dream about her often and then I won't dream about her for ages. Just a few nights ago I had really bad indigestion and I remember dreaming that I asked my mom to get me a "Tums" and she answered me. I can't remember what it was she said, but I remember waking up because it was as if I could hear her right next to me. It's amazing how you can actually physically "hear" someone who's passed away. I lost my brother in October 2007 and I've also had dreams where I can actually hear his voice. I find it very painful when I hear them, compared to when I just dream about seeing them.

I dreamt of my mum before I even knew I was pregnant! She came to me and said "take care of my grandchild" I also had quite a lot of trouble with my pregnancy and spent the last few months in hospital and I recall actually waking up one night to someone telling me to roll onto my side as it was bad for the baby the way I was sleeping... I asked around the nurses the next day and they said nobody had been in my room the night before.... While I was in labor I kept "passing out" in between contractions and there she was again telling me I could do it and supporting me. I have dreamt of her a few times since my son has been born but I think my son has seen her a few times aswell as he often tells me things that he and "grandma" get up to, and I ask him who is grandma, he points out he picture, then I ask him where they were playing and he tells me in his room. It makes me feel great to know that she is still "around" keeping an eye on things!

I've dreamt of my mom from time to time, but everytime I'm pregnant (3rd time around!) I will constantly dream of her.. either just talking to her, seeing her being with my children, etc. I'm not sure if its because she passed long before I had even thought of having kids so I want to have her here more or not, but it always makes me feel better to think of it as her doing her mom thing.. like checking on me, seeing how the kids are doing, letting me know shes thinking of me too :)
