Some dreams are more memorable than others depending on the emotions that come up during and after the dream.
If you’ve recently had a dream about someone that’s passed away, especially someone close to you like your recently passed mother figure, this dream could hold a significant message for you to decode.
The dream realm is truly fascinating, showing you exactly what you need to see in very unique (sometimes confusing) ways.
In this particular post, we will be discussing the different ways past mother figures could show up in your dreams and what they could mean to you.
Is This Dream a Prediction for the Future?
It’s very rare that dreams of a violent or disturbing nature are actually predictions for the future.
In fact, the dream realm is just a reflection of your subconscious.
The subconscious mind is an interesting (and very important) part of the body and mind.
Believe it or not, it actually runs the majority of your life! While most people don’t pay attention to their feelings because they don’t have the time or patience to, your emotions rule your emotional body, or better yet known as your energetic aura.
The main job of your subconscious mind is to store what’s not able to be consciously (or logically) processed.
This may include emotions, symbols, visuals, and other things that evoke different feelings within you.
In most situations, many people are not able to process how they feel comfortable, so they push all of these experiences to the back of their mind, storing it in the subconscious to be processed later.
For instance, if you’ve recently grieved the death of a close family member like your mother you may not have too many “safe” spaces outside of your immediate home to process how you actually feel.
If you’re still trying to get through the grieving process after a death, your dreams may show what needs to be processed.
This does not go to say that the dream realm is limited to suppressed emotions.
The dream realm bleeds into the spiritual realm where deceased loved ones may also visit you to tell you important information.
Most Common Dreams About Deceased Mothers
If you’ve recently had a dream about a mother figure that’s passed away, you’re not alone.
Many people have shared this experience.
Here are some of the most common meanings to dreams about deceased mothers that others have had.
Hopefully, they can provide a new perspective as to why your dream recently showed up for you.
Experiencing an Intense Life Transformation
Whether you have realized it yet or not, everyone experiences life transformations—some more intense than others.
If you’ve been feeling stagnant or even frustrated in your waking life, this dream could be a sign that you’re ready to dive into a deep transition in your life.
Your mother is the first vessel to bring you into this life.
Her visiting you during a dream could indicate that you’re ready to start a new life or at least a new chapter of your life.
Depending on the details of your dream, she could have important messages to share with you to prepare you for the next chapter in your life.
This is an important dream to pay attention to.
This is especially true if your mother spoke to you or communicated with you in any way.
If you have a dream journal, write these details down so that you can integrate these lessons into your waking life!
Processing Difficult Emotions from Your Waking Life
As mentioned above, many people don’t have the appropriate time or space to properly emotionally heal from heavy traumas like losing a close loved one.
This can definitely ring true if you’ve recently lost a mother figure in your life.
Moms play so many roles in our lives from teaching us how to walk to even teaching us how to talk and present ourselves in our adult lives.
If you haven’t taken the appropriate time to grieve a major loss in your life like a mother figure passing away, your mother may visit you in your dreams.
This can be interpreted as more lessons for your mother to share with you that couldn’t be shared during her waking life.
Or, it could be processed as suppressed emotions that need to be released in your reality.
Only you would be able to know how your unique dream resonates with you!
A Feeling of Regret Still Lingers
In the case that you have a dream about your mother that has passed on, this could be a sign that you have some regret about the amount of time that you spent with her.
Or, this could be a sign that you regret not saying everything that you may have wanted to say when she was in the 3D world with you.
Thankfully, the dream realm blends into the spiritual realm, allowing us to communicate with those who have passed on.
This is where you may be able to tell her what you wish you would have said when she was here with you minus the egotistical boundaries that exist in our physical realm.
You’re Coming Into New Wisdom
Mothers in your dream are a significant sign of new knowledge and wisdom coming into your life.
Only a select few of the entire population have the opportunity to be a mother and only those select few know how it truly feels to bring another life into this world.
There is no handbook to parenting, especially motherhood.
However, this sacred journey is full of invaluable lessons that parallel different areas of life.
Your mother visiting you in your dreams could indicate that you’re about to learn something new and integrate important lessons into your life.
You’re Being Protected
If your mother shows up for you in your dreams, this could mean that she’s surrounding you in your waking life.
You may be able to feel her protective presence, shielding you from low vibrational experiences.
If this dream comes to you (especially more than once), this is a good sign that you’re being guided along your path.
Moving forward, you can step up to new challenges in life with confidence!
