What do you do when you dreamt about your dead parent?

Last Saturday my sis told me that she dreamt about our late mother and that she would go to the cemetery to visit her grave. I told her I would go with her. We have planned to visit my mother's grave yesterday Monday but it rained so hard and the cemetery would be muddy. So we postpone it. What do you do when you dreamt about your dead parent / parents? Do you go visit the cemetery? Do you pray for them in the church? I wonder what you do as we have different cultures and tradition here at Mylot. BTW, do you happen to know the name of this flower in the photo above?

Not necessarily in church, but I usually just pray for them wherever I might be at the time...

@thelme55 .. Then it is pretty normal not to have them in dream? I always thought it was because I lost her earlier on.

@thelme55 no worries, hon. he'd been through 'nough 'n t'was time fer him to go. his ashes 're scattered 't his favorite spots back'n the hills, a long ways from here. i thought the flower looked similar. we've a pink'un 'round these parts. i'd share a pic with ya 'f such but fear the grasshoppers thought 'em most tasty 'n they failed to return. its called a siskiyou pink guara - the flowers look akin to yer galphimia glauca. i plead laziness to seein' if'n they're related, lol. hope ya'd a great weekend, hon. i'm glad mine 'tis o'er :)

What a nightmare, l hope i never dream about my dad any more. I stopped the medication soon after, knew they will drive me crazy

@ridingbet I already know the name thanks to @sofssu. It is called Galphimia Glauca and it's a healing plant use in homeopathic treatment.

@thelme55 I think your mother needs more prayers for your intentions. I understand the poor souls in Purgatory need prayers just as we also need prayers from our dearly departed.

@thelme55 Have not gone home since we moved to Canada almost 25 years ago. . . I hope my late parents' spirits will not enter my body when we go home next year and visit their graves.

Seeing deceased parents in a dream means they want to convey you something. Here in India we perform annual rituals for them.

I have never had a dream in which my late mother was present, and she passed away 4 years ago. I would probably visit her grave if she did appear in one of my dreams.
