The Reasons Why We Dream Of Dead People And What It Means For Us

If you've recently found yourself dreaming of dead people, there's absolutely no need to worry because it's not an omen announcing your imminent death. In fact, these experiences are considered to be symbolic images of the transformation of certain aspects of the dreamer's life. Indeed, when we are in a complicated situation, these ghosts tend to appear to us, yet, their goal isn't to scare us, instead they want to comfort us or to bring us the solutions we need. There are of course several meanings depending on the identity of the deceased that appear to us when we sleep. Susan Taylor reveals her interpretation.

We have all tried to understand our dreams and the messages hidden in them at one point or another. We all want to know why certain people appear to us during our sleep, especially we notice a deceased person...  These nocturnal visits seem real and are all the more disturbing because of it. But don't worry, there is nothing gloomy to learn, quite the opposite! The appearance of a deceased person in dreams is a particularly disturbing situation, especially when these visits seem very real. However, it is important to understand these dreams in order to try to detect the messages they are trying to convey to you.

What it means if you're dreaming of dead people - There are 5 possibilities

1. You need support and comfort

If you dream about a dead person, it’s likely that you are currently in a complicated situation, and the ghosts of the past have picked up on this. This means that you know your protector that is now looking over you during your slumber.

If the figure talks to you, but you do not say anything, your protector wants to warn you of danger that you may not have felt coming. If the dream is in the form of a dialogue, take it as a great dose of support and comfort. As if he were your guardian angel*, your loved one wants to guide you.

*You may have noticed that the person you dream about no longer has exactly the same traits as when they were alive, but is now part of the spiritual world and in this sense may be closer to your guardian angel.

2. You have things to settle and conclude

The famous neuropsychiatric Sigmund Freud, who was very gifted at finding the meaning of dreams, looked into the matter and indicated that confronting a deceased person in your sleep signposts a need to settle scores. Everything that is said or experienced is related to a need to close a relationship. As if you had a feeling of incompleteness, love, anger or even a secret that couldn’t be expressed earlier.

3. You must enjoy life

According to psychotherapist George Roomey, seeing a person who died shows the clear link between these two worlds; that of the living and the dead. Indeed, the ghost is there to remind you that you are alive and well, and that you should take advantage of it.

4. It's time for you to move on

Not that it's time to sever ties with that person or to forget them... but you have to draw a line under what they mean to you, on an unconscious level. For example, if you dream of losing your mother while she's still very much alive, that means you cut the cord and end all forms of dependency. As if you were marking the beginning of a new period, a period where you are free and autonomous. Another example, if you dream that a child (no matter who they are) dies, it means it's time for you to take responsibility. The child here represents the recklessness or immaturity that you have to say goodbye to in order to move forward!

5. A change is about to take place in your life

If it's not a ghost you dream of, but a disaster that causes the death of many people, a big change is taking place in your surroundings. Your habits may well be disrupted, either at work or in your personal life. This vision therefore invites you to prepare yourself psychologically so that nothing will be the same as before... And it won't necessarily be a bad thing!

My dream started with myself and my mother, she passed in 2018, in the home I grew up in and she wanted to travel. The next vision was myself and my grandmother in the house she used to live in and then I lived in with my children for several years. My grandmother was crying sitting in a chair in front of the kitchen window. She was dressed in a beautiful white robe. She was crying and all of sudden my mom appeared in front of her. My mom was young and had her dress on she got married in. Her hair was in a bun. I never saw her face. She was bent down and my grandmother was patting her saying "I'm sorry i was so mean to you growing up, please forgive me"! My mom responded its ok, its ok! what does that mean?

I dreamt of a person that but was dead covered in mummified bandages suddenly started stirring I did nor know them but they two layers of bandages I rushed down stairs and told this woman who pulled out a snooker que and proceeded to go upstairs I woke up then only the snooker que mean something but that's between me and my guardian angel

There was a raft that I got on, out of the water. Soon after the dream I was faced with a cheating husband, got a divorce. Some how have always had what I need. Ecentials etc. I now am 86 yr. old. My only child ( son) passed 3 yr. ago at 43. GOD HELP ME!!!!!! Will I ever experience happiness? B.D. 7/25/1935

Marilyn, it is always hard to lose a child. Just remember God is a True & Just God and He truly loves you. Psalm 30:5 ...weeping may endure for a night but joy cometh in the morning. For me, my sorrows & losses I interpret this verse for myself as the time on earth like the night and when I get to heaven will be the morning. In heaven I will be reunited with loved ones for eternity. I will pray for the heaviness of your heart be lightened and that you trust the Lord.

You sound like a gentle soul that's gone through a lot that is a young age to loss a son how ever unfair it seems your souls go on and on even if we don't remember our last incarnation happiness comes from the heart you will find if you look deep into your inner self Bless

Hugs❤🙏its always difficult....but remember God will give us love and much more in the after life, sorry for your losses.
