s8nlovesme (aweful nick BTW especially under the topic we are discussing) I think the answer to your Question is Yes and Yes.
It can be your dream, as a wish fulfillment, or it can be real . I once had a close friend who died whilst I was overseas. Although I hadn't seen her
in a few years, I still retained contact and felt close to her. After learning of her death, I really just wanted to say "Goodbye". One night she
appeared in my dream, led by an angel, to visit me.
I was really confused, and didn't understand what was happening, I was in a grey place and didn't know how to react to what I was seeing, didn't
know how to talk to her. The "angel" or guardian, turned to her and said "He's confused, he thinks this is a dream".
My reaction was not what I would have expected a wish fulfilment dream would be like, I didn't have the chance to say goodbye, or even to logically
understand what was happening at the time. This alone makes me think it was real, a manufactured dream would have settled my desires. My confusion
really did derive from a spiritual situation I didn't handle well at the time.
So, yes, it could be a wish fullfillment dream, or yes, it could be real. Really the only person who knows is you.
