Interaction Dream Type
An interaction dream involves contact with another person, often a loved one who has passed on, but also can be a spiritual guide or someone who is still living. If the person is someone you know, they usually appear as themselves rather than looking like another person (realistic, no symbolism). Dream content can vary, but often some particular feeling or sense is conveyed to the dreamer, such as a feeling that all is well with this person. Sometimes unfinished business is resolved or the dreamer's questions are answered during the dream state. Occasionally, actions that occurred in the past with this person are reversed, such as when someone who harmed you in the past comes back in your dream state and offers you a kind action.
You dream that the boy who used to bully you in junior high approaches you, expresses his deep regret, and offers you a gift that has great meaning. You accept his apology, take the gift, and shake hands with him. You sense that the person in the dream is the real person and you now feel a peace about your history with him.
According to your intuition, the person in the dream was really the person he appeared to be. You likely interacted with him on a subconscious level and he has no memory of the interaction. A key to knowing if the person is really who they appear to be is your recognition of the person's "essence" or soul, as well as their appearance. This is tricky, unless your intuition is extremely well developed, because people often appear as someone else in dreams and they are usually a mock-up that your imagination has created rather than the actual person. This dream was likely a "reversal of fortune" or balancing of karma, where unfinished business from the past was resolved. The only ways to determine whether this was an actual interaction and not just a mock-up of your own creation are to use your intuition or check with an intuitive expert.
In your dream, your aunt who died 2 months ago appears and tells you that she is doing well and is very happy, and that she is with your grandmother (who died several years ago). You immediately recognized her "essence" and can feel that it's actually her appearing in your dream. She conveys to you a strong feeling of peace, well being, and love.
Because your intuition tells you that the person you saw was actually your aunt, this dream was likely an actual interaction with her spirit. Her intention was to let you know that she is okay where she is now, and that she and your grandmother are together. The only ways to determine whether this was an actual interaction and not just a mock-up of your own creation are to use your intuition or check with an intuitive expert.
