What Do Dreams about Dead People Mean?

dreams dead relativesMystics claim that the world of our dreams can be a connection to other worlds, inaccessible to our waking consciousness, so it is not a coincidence that since ancient times it was believed that dreams of died people are an important sign that must not be ignored. The dead come to our dreams with a message, advice or warning that should be understood in order to avoid unnecessary troubles and keep ourselves from making mistakes.

Psychologists believe that dreams about relatives or friends who have passed away are just a manifestation of depression or feelings of guilt towards them. However, let’s take a closer look at the mystical point of view and try to understand what messages can be carried by people who are now alive only in our memories and can talk to us only through our dreams.

Modern dream books often do not pay enough attention to many important nuances: what the dead people look like in our dreams – dead in the grave, alive and happy, or they come to life right before our eyes, or maybe we just do not remember in our dream that this person has passed away long ago.

Interpretations of dreams about deceased people

It is commonly assumed that the dream of a dead person (talking to him, listening to his advice, and doing what he tells) is a sign of unexpected news or changes in life. Christian dream interpretation books sometimes explain that we have such kind of dreams when the soul of our deceased relative or friend has not found peace yet, and advise to hold additional ceremonies at the funeral and repose of the deceased (for example, if in the dream the deceased asks for water).

Pagan interpretations of dreams that have come down to us recommend to implicitly obey everything that the dead person asks for, in order to avoid the anger of the gods. And while dreaming dead people may be scary, sometimes it can be a good omen. In case if in your dream a dead person comes back to life, it may mean that something lost will soon return (money, a thing, or even social status).

An English dream book interprets the dream of dead people as a sign of good events in the family, such as a wedding or the birth of a child or anything happy and prosperous. Another dream book says that seeing a dead relative in a dream before the wedding is a warning against the union. This dream indicates the unhappy marriage and warns that the children born in it will be sick and weak.

What about dreams of a deceased relative?

At this point there is no definitive interpretation, and you should always take into account many confounding factors. But most interpretations concerning dead relatives (especially parents) appearing in a dream indicate a warning of trouble. Sometimes the dreams in which a sleeping person communicates with his deceased parents, help find inner peace, confidence, and even affect the success in business and the well-being of the family.

It is also believed that it is impossible to influence the dreams in which we see our dead loved ones. Even if you manage to do it, it is absolutely useless, since it is not us who call them in, it is them who decide to come to us.

  1. Sorry but this article told me absolutely nothing about what it means if we dream of a dead relative /:

  2. Hi…So I am just going to get right to it. My twin brother passed away when we were two (drowning in the backyard pool). I am 19 now. I have never dreamed of him before, up until now…but it’s not exactly a pleasant dream and I wish it would stop.

    They are always different- but it’s always the same plot- I try to bring him back to life- all in different ways. But it never works, and the dream always ends the same- I view my brother, at the age of 2, face down floating in a body of water.

    It’s a horrible horrible dream. I feel hopeful that it will work and helpless trying to do all the tasks that I have to do to bring him back and all I feel is despair and longing at the end, and then I wake up..

    Any reasons behind this dream??

  3. From last two weeks I’m watching dreams of dead peoples. Sometimes in the dreams its me or a person with me who is killing them and sometimes they are already dead and don’t know any of them and have never seen them before. What does these dreams means?

  4. How do I bring my grandma back to life? I will do anything to bring my grandma back to life. I keep dreaming of my grandma. I miss my grandma so much. Please come back to this earth grandma. Prosim. Ja udelam co koliv at se vratis spatky

  5. You defiantly miss your twin, your other half so to say, and you will meet again. But in the meantime you are reliving the experience only because now you can. Its not bad though, so think of it as a divorce which is the same thing (to some) as a death of a loved one.

  6. Short nutshell…
    1 cousin died 12 years ago (about) (electrocuted at home with a welder) (about 14 years old when he died)

    1 cousin died last year or 2 years ago (electrocuted at work installing train cables) (about 30 years old when he died)

    Both cousins on my fathers side. (1st cousin was his sisters and 2nd brothrs child)

    I’m dreaming about them on and of the past 2 months….
    HAPPY DREAMS where we laugh (all i really remember is we were happy)

    I havent seen the 1st cousin from 4 years before his death
    and second cousin about 12 years before his death (we spoke once on the phone in that 12 years and a few times (maybe 10) on facebook)

  7. My cousin passed away last month. I keep dreaming of her. In my first dream she was holding her nephew who is a couple months old. And in my last dream, her heart stopped at the age in which she died then started back up as a lil baby girl in my arms. I’m not sure what’s going on. Please any advice?

  8. I DREAMT OF MY SISTER INLAW SHE PASSED ON, IN MY DREAM I WAS WITH HER WE WERE WALKING TOGETHER AND SHE WAS SHOPPING BUT SHE WAS BUYING BABY CLOTHES, WHAT DOES THAT MEAN?

  9. Any relative, friend or loved one who passes away is reborn within a time frame. Depending on their level of awareness of consciousness the time will vary. Time does not really exist but as society puts it. That person is most likely reborn into the lives of people from their previous birth. (Sometimes you get the feeling that you have known someone forever even though you just met, it is called soul grouping). When you dream of a loved one it means you are communicating with them on another dimension..physical reality is supposed to be 3D (3rd Dimension) but when the physical body dies the consciousness goes to a higher or lower dimension, depending on the way the physical life was lived. Embrace your loved ones in dreams they are most times trying to understand their death in order to be reborn. Have faith in seeing them again because they will be back, for those who have the baby dreams. Through personal experience and research a baby is born to one of the closest persons to the deceased within atleast 2 years after the death.:)

  10. Last few 3 days I’ve had dreams day 1 my uncle wife she was smiling I inbraced her, she sail me she was looking for her daughter & left without saying goodby. 2 my grandson was drowning I jumped in to save him, knowing I couldn’t swim, he was ok. 3 I was flying trying to get away from people that was trying to hurt me, but I few in zig zag to keep them from shooting me. What those these dreams mean?
