Why Do I Not See My Shaykh in My Dreams?

I used to see my Shaykh in my dreams but I haven’t seen him for a while. Why would this be?

If you have stopped reciting some of your adhkar or stopped doing some other good action that you were doing, or if your connection to him has weakened, then this is a reminder to work on this.

If that is not the case, then it is to make you accustomed to continue striving on the path and seeking spiritual assistance from the Shaykh without being overly attached to seeing him.
