 I've had several dreams where I see my great great grandmother. She doesn't talk, she just kind of sits there and leads me to places and it's really, really cold. The last dream I had like this was in 10th grade; she led me to my hang out room/office and sat down on the bench next to my desk, she had me sit on my computer chair and on my desk was a gray candle(lit) with a mirror. I sat in from of it, but unfortunately when I looked in the mirror my alarm rang. I don't usually have dreams where my room is how it is in real life It's only happened about 3 times and she was in two of those dreams. In another dream I walked into the same room and a bunch of santeros where trying to teach me something and I couldn't understand the language just the bits of Spanish, all I could get from it was that something was trying or going to take over me. A part of me knows what it is, but I can't place my finger on it. Normal isn't really the watchword when it comes to my family since we all posses some degree of perception, but I don't feel comfortable telling any of them, it took me more than a year to tell my mom about the first dream. Last month my mom took me to do a reading because of my 'depression' and apparently spirits stick to me like glue(I'm teh awesomeness) and that I have to learn how to holler at them and the gypsy only when I need their help. I don't know why I wrote this, I feel silly just typing it. I don't know if any of this was a dream or if it was real because a part of me will always deny the occurrence of these events and'll just size it up to too much anime and fanfics.
Anyway, has this or something similar ever happened to anyone?

If your mom or another family member can help you when you are feeling overwhelmed by the visits, I think you really should tell them. I would also recommend keeping a dream journal, and writing down what you can remember about your dreams. You could also state aloud and/or write down a request for clarification before you go to sleep, and your great grandma's purpose in the visits might get more clear to you.

No idea, I have a similar problem if it's any comfort. I sometimes dream of animals (and sometimes they talk) and would like to know if they are spirits or if it's just my mind choosing such images to work something out. Those dreams are very vivid and have curious features like me changing into animals, jumping into tree holes or an animal trying to eat me.  Huh

I second Rose's recommendation of a dream dairy. It's hard to remember them correctly and analyse them if you don't write them down immediately. That's true for any dream, with spirits or without.

i agree with rose i keep a dream journal and have done for the past three years i write in mine even if the dream doesnt make sense straight away, by writing it down and going over it at a later date you may find it becomes clearer.  Sometimes i also find when i look over past dreams that spirits have put a message in parts over  several dreams, once writen down this is alot easier to see and discover.

I've had one dream (that I remember) where I visited the astral realm I work with most often.  I've had a couple where someone I knew from that realm (who, to the best of my knowledge is an alive human who projects, like me) found me.  Both times, he said something that didn't make sense in the dream "narrative" but made sense when I was thinking about it after I woke up.  And once I had a dream that gave me a really useful perspective on dealing with fear.  (My beloved actually worked that one into a little trance journey.)

So those are my significant dreams over the past...twelve years or so. Smiley  I've never been visited by spirits, though.  (Although *maybe* an animal spirit in the fear one - not really sure.)

Are there any similarities other than your g-ma in these dreams?  Did anything come from them?  Has your g-ma given you messages or warnings before?

And you say that spirits are attracted to you...that could be the grey and the cold.  Are you supressing these gifts?  Are you afraid of certain spirits?  Are you afraid of what could happen?  Is there a spirit who is attacking you?  Remember you are protected and loved.

(I hope this makes sense to you)
