This is a continuation of JustMe's original post since that one is almost out of room. From the original post: What are you thoughts about ghosts, spirits, those who have died, passed on...you get the idea...specifically regarding their connections to the living? I have very vivid and lucid dreams and have dreamed about my father who passed away and my grandmother who passed away. Both times I communicated with them in the dream knowing (in the dream) that they were no longer living. In the one with my father he appeared next to me on a couch and we were tele-communicating in our minds. I asked him "Can the dead really communicate with the living?" and he shook his head no and said, "I'm only a figment of your imagination." I said, "If you're only my imagination, then why wouldn't I tell myself we CAN communicate?" Right after I asked that question I woke up.... really strange. My best friend also had a dream about him three days before he died, but he wasn't conscious during those days. He came to her apartment and told her to take care of me. In the dream with my grandmother I was in her house where she used to live. My grandfather had told me a few weeks earlier at Thanksgiving that he thought my grandma was haunting his house by turning lights on in the middle of the night. I asked her in the dream if she was haunting him and she laughed and said, "No, but it's someone named Andrew." Freaky. I've also had some other experiences while I was awake, but I'll save those for another post!
