What Does It Mean When You Dream Of Dead People?: A Sign Of Change

Last updated by Susan Taylor

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.

What does it mean to dream of dead people? - The meaning differs depending on who you dream about

What it means to dream of your deceased mother

A mother is usually a symbol of education, guidance and refuge. In life, she offers comfort and guidance. If you dream of your deceased mother, it may mean that you are missing this part of her. By talking with her in your dream, you may be trying to get her advice on a problem you are facing in your life. Knowing exactly what your mother would say if she were still alive, your subconscious mind will work through the image you have of your mother to provide you with the advice you need.

What about dreaming of your deceased father?

In dreams, fathers usually represent protection, authority, independence and decision-making. You may be having trouble making a decision or getting respect. Your subconscious mind is trying to push you into action through a dream about your deceased father. This type of dream often occurs when you need extra support in your waking life.

Dreaming of your deceased brother or sister

Although dreaming about a deceased loved one feels good in most cases, sometimes you may wake up feeling a little troubled. Despite the affection they have for each other, it is well known that brothers and sisters can also "hate" each other without hating each other. You may dream of being in conflict with your deceased brother or sister. This may mean that a friendship or relationship may end in your waking life. In this case, your dream is a warning.

Dreaming of a deceased friend

A good friend may appear in your dreams during a time of struggle or when you are struggling to make a difficult decision. Dreaming of a dead friend could then indicate that you need a little help in making that decision. In most cases, this type of dream simply means that you miss that faithful friend.

5 Reasons why you dream of dead people

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!

How do you communicate with loved ones who have passed?

Depending on the person, it is more or less easy to contact or even talk to the dead because souls will understand your message telepathically. You can speak with the dead aloud or in your head whilst performing special rituals, including;

  • With candles: Candles represent light, heat, and energy. They will burn while sending out beneficial waves.
  • With music: Music raises the vibrations of the place, of the person who hears it, and of the soul who perceives it. This helps the soul to understand its path and gives us more power and energy to carry out our ritual.
  • With butterflies: Butterflies represent freedom and the flight of the soul. They also symbolize the transformation of the earthly person into a beautiful soul.

Susan Taylor’s insights: Our angels accompany us

In particular, when a deceased relative appears in a dream and acts, speaks or simply stays there, it is a moment of comfort and a search to guide the dreamer. It is notable that the person in the dream no longer has the traits of character that he or she had while alive. Instead, he or she has the characteristics of what we can call a guardian angel.
