Dream of the Month (August 2004)
Dr. Holloway's Comments:
Striking Characteristics: According to some researchers, phone call dreams are among the most common themes associated with apparent after death communication.
There are few things more controversial than the possibility that departed loved ones actually do make contact through some of our dreams. Every individual must make the determination about what they believe to be the nature of such dreams. However, I believe some of these dreams do represent loving communication from those we have lost, and that we do well to accept the healing and reassurance they offer. My research suggests that dreams that provide reassurance, advice to let go of sadness, and leave the dreamer a sense of contact should be regarded with respect. Be open-minded about the endurance of love; be skeptical about dismissals of inner experience.
