Thanks for the response Muhammed, and for your interesting recollections of advice about dreams. I too have seen loved ones long gone in dreams occasionally. I remember I could smell my grandmother’s perfume when she was present in one of those dreams. I also recall inducing such dreams was easier if I was open to them, making a simple suggestion to my mind rather than trying too hard.
I’ve asked for guidance before, but haven’t heard of a ’guidance prayer.’ Sounds interesting!
