To dream that you are conversing with a dead relative, and that relative endeavors to

extract a promise from you, warns you of coming distress, unless you follow the advice

given you. Disastrous consequences could often be averted if minds could grasp the inner

workings and sight of the higher or spiritual self. The voice of relatives is only that

higher self taking form to approach more distinctly the mind that lives near the material

plane. There is so little congeniality between common or material natures that persons

should depend upon their own subjectivity for true contentment and pleasure.

Paracelsus says on this subject:

It may happen that the soul of persons who have died perhaps fifty years

ago may appear to us in a dream, and if it speaks to us we should pay

special attention to what it says, for such a vision is not an illusion or

delusion, and it is possible that a man is as much able to use his reason

during the sleep of his body as when the latter is awake; and if in such a

case such a soul appears to him and he asks questions, he will then hear

that which is true. Through these solicitous souls we may obtain a great

deal of knowledge to good or to evil things if we ask them to reveal them

to us. Many persons have had such prayers granted to them. Some people

that were sick have been informed during their sleep what remedies they

should use, and after using the remedies, they became cured, and such

things have happened not only to Christians, but also to Jews, Persians,

and heathens, to good and to bad persons.

The writer does not hold that such knowledge is obtained from external or excarnate

spirits, but rather through the personal Spirit Glimpses that is in man.AUTHOR.

To hear of any friend or relative being dead, you will soon have bad news from some of


Dreams relating to death or dying, unless they are due to spiritual causes, are misleading

and very confusing to the novice in dream lore when he attempts to interpret them. A

man who thinks intensely fills his aura with thought or subjective images active with the

passions that gave them birth; by thinking and acting on other lines, he may supplant

these images with others possessed of a different form and nature. In his dreams he may

see these images dying, dead or their burial, and mistake them for friends or enemies. In

this way he may, while asleep, see himself or a relative die, when in reality he has been

warned that some good thought or deed is to be supplanted by an evil one. To illustrate:

If it is a dear friend or relative whom he sees in the agony of death, he is warned against

immoral or other improper thought and action, but if it is an enemy or some repulsive

object dismantled in death, he may overcome his evil ways and thus give himself or

friends cause for joy. Often the end or beginning of suspense or trials are foretold by

dreams of this nature. They also frequently occur when the dreamer is controlled by

imaginary states of evil or good. A man in that state is not himself, but is what the

dominating influences make him. He may be warned of approaching conditions or his

extrication from the same. In our dreams we are closer to our real self than in waking life.

The hideous or pleasing incidents seen and heard about us in our dreams are all of our

own making, they reflect the true state of our soul and body, and we cannot flee from

them unless we drive them out of our being by the use of good thoughts and deeds, by the

power of the spirit within us.
