If you’ve ever lost a loved one, you know that dream visitations are a precious occurrence. I have very vivid dreams of my dad and always have mixed emotions when I wake–a combination of disappointment that he’s not really there and a sort of elation that I was able to spend time with him.
A few weeks ago, I was asked by a producer of The Doctors TV show (the former producer of the Fox 5 morning show) to meet with a dream analyst, Cynthia Richmond, who helps people connect to their deceased loved ones via dreams through a process called “Dream Incubation.”
I jumped at the chance to talk about this subject. I dedicated an entire chapter of my book to dreams as they are a very powerful source of healing during the grief process. Watch the video to hear Cynthia talk through the steps of dream incubation. I haven’t tried it yet, but I’m going to and will do a follow-up blog post about it.
What about you, do you think you’d try to “incubate a dream” and ask a loved one to join you in your dreams for a night to ask a specific question or maybe to resolve an unresolved issue? Let me know if you’ve tried something like this or if you’re thinking about doing it. I’d love to know how it goes. And you can always follow up with Cynthia if you have questions. She was truly a spiritual, positive force who made me feel comfortable and safe.
