Sigmund Freud, popularly known as the father of Psychoanalysis has written a book, 'Interpretation of Dreams'. Where he has described why we dream and also why do we see some specific people in our dreams. In his theory, Sigmund says, "the purpose of dreams is to transform the forbidden wish into a non-threatening form, thus reducing the anxiety of the unconscious mind and allowing us to continue our sleep."

The visitor is in the dream is generally surrounded by some intense light. They often give messages or advices which could help overcome problems and also prevent some mistakes. They often come to tell their loved ones that they made it to the other side comfortably and that everything is at peace.

Instead, visitation dreams are typically clear, vivid, intense and are experienced as real visits when the dreamer awakens."
