Here’s something I never thought I’d be writing about…
Ever since my mom passed in 2017, she has come to me often in my dreams. Sometimes I’m just dreaming about her, and sometimes she is visiting.
She has imparted much wisdom to me about the other side.
Recently I had an experience I was not expecting. She came to me in a dream and told me she was going to give me a gift. Exciting! A gift from Mom on the other side!
So then the scene changed and I saw a young girl of about 12 or 13 years old and as the scene played out I realized I was seeing my mom in her youth.
It was like watching a movie that fast forwarded through parts and slowed down at others.
It didn’t take me long before I realized I was seeing her entire life. It’s the same way I see people’s past lives when I do past life readings. The scenes zoom along until a significant event happens, then I see the scene more slowly and in more detail.
So I paused the “playback” as it were and said, “Are you showing me your life?”
And she said, “Not exactly. I’m showing you my life review.”
If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, you’ll know that a life review is not just a playback of your life, but includes all the impact you made on others, whether it’s positive or negative.

Wow, I thought to myself. That’s a very private and personal thing to share with someone.
She said “I want you to know who I was, completely and fully. I want you to understand my motivations for doing everything I did in raising you.”
So I continued with the playback. As we came to events that hurt her, I could feel her pain. Events that excited her caused me to feel that excitement as well. I saw scenes she wasn’t even in; I was witnessing the effect she had on others. Some were positive, some negative, as you would expect.
It was deep. It was personal. It was intense. There was a lot of love though. My mom was a kind and gentle soul who always brought a spirit of play to her activities with us. She loved to play the piano while we danced. She always gave us her full attention when we came home from school and would listen to us talk about our days with great interest.
And now I understood why. Her childhood was filled with hurt and pain and she wanted to make her children’s lives easy and fun.
By the time her life review was complete, I was crying in my dream.
I was honored to have been given that full download of my mother and her life from a perspective you can’t really have when you are living.
My mom is still an active part of my spiritual life and my growth. I don’t know that I will ever see another person’s life review in such detail, but the gift she gave me, the gift of understanding her completely, was priceless.
