About the phenomenon of the dead in a dream

 

Archpriest Dimitry Smirnov on the appearance of the dead in a dream

 

- The Holy Fathers taught us to be very careful about dreams: not to accept or reject. Has it ever happened that the Lord allowed the dead to appear to someone in a dream? What is the purpose of the dead? Or is it always the demons come in the form of the dead?

 

- It is difficult to find statistics, but I think that the ratio is nine to one. Of course, it happens. And such things are known and very much.

 

Now I remembered, for example, that Metropolitan Filaret of Moscow (Drozdov) was his descendant. I do not know whether he was his grandson or some great grandson. And he said to him in a dream: “You are the only one of my descendants who remained on the earth, that's where my mother’s grave is located - you put it in order”. She was buried right in the Trinity Church at Krestovsky Cemetery, near Krestovsky Bridge at Pyatnitsky. The descendant did not attach any importance to this. Then the saint appeared to him a second time and, in my opinion, even the third. And just firmly made. And, indeed, the descendant found this burial and gave it its proper appearance.It is clear that nothing could be devilish here. Because there was a specific appeal and a specific result, and there were no tempting and seductive moments.

 

The gift of discerning spirits and the gift of reasoning are much less common than the gift of love. Therefore, of course, the holy fathers said: do not reject or accept such phenomena. Because an inexperienced, unread, not having a real spiritual experience of a person, demons will be deceived as a little child. It is better not to pay attention to the fact thatdreams of the dead. This is a very correct and sober approach.

 

- One woman says: “What if, when the dead are dreaming, the Lord wants to say something to me, and now I will disregard it” ...

 

- This is, first of all - lack of faith. Secondly, it is the attitude towards God as some kind of weak, poor being. So you need to treat the requests of your neighbor. Because through our neighbor the Lord speaks to us. And about the fact thatdreams of the dead, Lord, if you wish, and in the middle of winter a watermelon will be brought to you, which happened in the history of the Church

We are afraid of death. And often we forget that there are two sides to it. On the one hand, death is tragic.It separates us from those whom we love, being the result of our falling away from God.

Everyone judges the other by himself
The spiritual state of a person can be determined by what he thinks about other people. We look at others through the prism of our inner world.
