psychic abilities, communication with the spiritual world, clairvoyant, clairaudient, other dimensions, letting go process

Every human being and living being is born and has to give up the body after a certain time. The confrontation with death was and probably still is a taboo subject about which people prefer to keep silent, because the mere thought that one day one will go into the ground does not give such a pleasant impression. When someone from our family or circle of friends passes away, there is not much left except for a deep painful emptiness and perhaps the longing to be able to talk to this person one last time. Old memories usually emerge, what one has experienced with this person.

Usually the mind "cleans up" the memory a bit, because you don't want the person to have to turn over in their grave again. Some make up for it at the gravesite by speaking to the headstone, although it is not proven if the deceased takes note. They feel they have not communicated something important or ask questions as well.

Also, there are people who believe in being able to contact the beloved person after death and contact a spiritual medium who is supposed to be able to speak with the dead. This possibility is generally viewed with great skepticism by many.

It is uncanny for many to have a conversation with a dead person in their mind. Yes, perhaps it is also not clear to the dreamer whether the deceased has passed away in peace. If this connection with the deceased person was predominantly joyful and full of harmony, one senses this in the feelings in the dream, which can then be perceived well and pleasantly.

For a good dream interpretation for the symbol "talking with dead" the dreamer should be aware of his exact life situation, which means to investigate in what way death has shown itself in his own life.
