Reconciling With Dead Father
Meeting My Dead Father
My dad has been dead for over 20 years. In the dream, I’m at his house with two other girls, my cousins; he looks very sad and lonely. I feel his pain and reach out for him. He has three large photo albums; I take one and put the other two back in a drawer. I walk with him and notice he’s limping; as I look at his foot, it’s deformed so I hold it in both hands and cradle it. I was very gentle and tender and felt so sad for him. It felt like I was making up with my dad.
Felt like I was reconciling with my dad.
Main Life Issues:
Lonely; in a dying relationship.
It’s a story of about reconnecting, healing and forgiveness.
Deformed foot: Something that makes it hard to move forward.
Sometimes a dream is not a dream, it’s an experience remembered as a dream because a dream is our only form of memory at night. Many believe the soul lives on after death and that a person may visit loved ones. This may have been an actual visit by your father, triggered by the struggles in your relationship. It sounds as if you had reasons to reconcile with your father and in the dream, you forgive him and help him heal; his deformed leg was a metaphor for what had to be healed between the two of you. It’s possible that your father saw your pain in your current relationship and wanted to let you know he is there for you.
What happened between you and your father in the dream may also suggest that forgiveness and reconnecting may be important in your current relationship, as a key a possible reconciliation.
Bottom Line: Forgive your husband, yourself and your dad. Forgiving your husband’s flaws might lead to healing between the two of you or at least free your feelings so that you can make choices that improve your life. Seeing your dad and reconciling with him is a reminder that doing so in all relationships is a good thing.
