Is Robin Williams communicating with Dana Carvey in his dreams?

dana-carvey-live-in-milwaukeeThis morning I was doing my weekly spot on 105.3 HOT FM in Grand Rapids when the hosts, Gravy and Rachael asked me about a story they saw in The National Enquirer, which states that comedian DANA CARVEY is telling pals he’s convinced there is life after death, because the spirit of his friend Robin Williams keeps appearing to him! Dana says of these encounters, “Robin comes to me usually in a lucid dream state or during my meditation,” Dana told a pal. “He’s as big as life, happy and joking around, and telling me I should never worry about anything because it’s all beautiful in the end… I go to bed with questions I want to ask Robin,” he divulged. “I’ll think about asking him about my kids’ careers and my health. When I wake up, I review those questions. The answers come to me in one of Robin’s character voices – it’s amazing!”

Wow.

Symbols for depression that show up in dreams

Gravy and Rachael wanted to know if our departed loved ones can communicate with us in our dreams. This is a question I am asked frequently, as well as one I wonder about myself. Science shows us that all energy travels in waves: light waves, sound waves, radio waves, etc. If consciousness continues to exist once the body has died (this has been neither proven nor dis proven) it would also travel in waves. If that is true, perhaps our brains are equipped to pick up on those waves. Our brains also work in waves and when we sleep, our brain wave patterns slow in frequency with each stage of sleep: alpha, beta, theta, etc. Perhaps  the REM stage of sleep is that perfect frequency that acts like a radio and allows us to tune in to the conscious energy of the departed.

I’ve certainly had enough dreams reported to me and even had dreams of my own that sure seem like an actual encounter. Those dreams feel different than regular dreams. They are far more “real.” and one often still feels the presence of the loved one when awakening. Sometimes their perfume or cologne lingers.

The thing about Dana Carvey’s dreams is that he has these experiences or encounters while in the lucid state, which is when you are in a dream and realize it is a dream. When we are in a lucid dream (not all of us can reach this state), our brain waves are operating in Gamma, which is the fastest frequency ever recorded. Operating from this frequency allows our brain to link and process information from multiple parts of the brain. We use more of our brain when we are experiencing lucid dreaming than we do when we are fully awake… which leads me to believe that perhaps lucidity or Gamma is the frequency where we can more easily tune in to those that have passed on. If it is ever proven to be conclusive, we may find that Gamma plays a role.

Psychologically speaking, Dana’s lucid experiences with Robin could merely be very deep self reflection. A recent study out of Germany found that a particular brain region known to be involved in self-reflection is larger in lucid dreamers. Dana did say that he asks Robin’s questions in his dreams about his kids, career, health, etc. In Dream Psychology, just about everything in your dream is symbolic of some part of the self. Robin could symbolize Dana’s own inner wisdom and through these lucid experiences he is having a deeply profound conversations with himself.

I suppose at this point in time, what it boils down to is taking all available research and experiences and forming your own opinion. Is Dana merely self reflecting or do you believe consciousness continues? Me? I choose to believe.

I don’t know why I didn’t order your books YEARS ago. I am so excited! I’m halfway through “So What Did You Dream Last Night” and LOVE LOVE LOVE it. You had me cracking up several times. I’m so happy to know I’m not the only one with completely off the wall dreams.

  1. I'm a pretty normal person but I do believe we can be contacted after death. It's happened to me with two different people. The first was my mother-in-law whom I wasn't particularly close with. But I knew she had died before anyone else because she came to me in a dream and told me she was fine and safe. I knew she meant she was transitioned. The other has been ongoing and I love it. It's with my ex-husband. The first time he visited I could practically touch him. I told him I was angry at him because I was grieving all this time and he said don't be; he's still here. It was beautiful.

  2. Saved as a favourite, excellent site!

  3. somethings are around me dark thing's need help

  4. Maybe there is a reason why they call it something to the effects of "never ending sleep".

    My theory is what if they are one in the same? The imaginary, dream state, and lasting consciouness all in one? What if they become imaginary? I think it's hard for people to comprehend how something as complex as the mind just suddenly stops existing, as well as all of the love they had for people.

    Even pets! Either i heard and didn't remember consciusly or something else happened. I had an experience where i was in sleep paralysis and in between being awake and sleeping, and I knew my guinea pig, oreo, had passed on. i knew because he was levetating right over my head, and we were talking, like we could undersand each other (think Dr. Dolittle). The same with 2 cats who had to be put into a perpetual state of sleep.

    I say they become imaginary, and the reason is due to the dream connection. Why is it they seem only able to present themselves and to communicate with those they have ben around or been exposed to most often and not the scientists whom could easily confrim life (or consciousness at least) continues after their depature?

    Perhaps those others are not able to fully catch on because they do not have much, if nothing at all to base it on.

    Also when you stop missing someone or trying to make contact, it's in a way like an imaginary friend. You stop wanting, you stop needing, you stop remembering, and they drop out of sight…yet they are still there…

    Also did you know that certain regions of the brain (much like REM sleep, and the same areas as well) are MORE active while in the last stages of life during a near death expeience compared to the similarly identicle dream (lucid or non lucid) stages than while awake? Why would their be MORE brain activity the closer to death than while we are at our highest peak of awareness in the fully living state?

    Think about that………………
