My recollection of what Theosophy says on the subject is rather dim. Years ago
I read a book published by Quest that gave excerpts of HPB's writings on
dreams. In that book there was no mention of Masters that I can recall. Not
that that means They do not assist persons in their dreams. Sai Baba
says that he can instruct people in their dreams. Why not other masters? And
what more impersonal way to minister to humankind than in dreams?

Looking at my own dreams and those of others I've seen, helpful presences make
appearances repeatedly. Are they Masters or parts of the psyche constellated
by archetypes? I personally think I see qualitative differences between
symbols emblematic of the Self and symbols that seem to refer to actual
Masterful persons. The latter are sometimes distinguished by an accompanying
feeling of familiarity, protection, and love.
