People often ask me what it means to dream about dead people. I say this is the most difficult thing to explain clearly in one or two sentences. It depends on who the person you dreamed about is? Do you know that he is dead in the dream? "Dead person" does not have one fixed meaning or several fixed meanings. If you dream about your late grandfather then what you should ask is: What is going on when I dream about my grandfather?
The dreams related to death that I can talk about here are limited to: dreaming about unknown dead people. In the dream, they also appear as corpses instead of moving like living people. Or, dream about the death of a living person in real life. Also, dream about yourself dying.
Unknown dead people or simply corpses in dreams often represent things that have "died". The death mentioned here is symbolic death, not real death.
A man dreamed that he was walking up a mountain, and there were dead people on both sides of the road. After analysis by psychologists, they found that in this dream, the dead person represented his own loss of vitality and vitality.
Dreaming about the death of someone you know also has this meaning, which means that this person (or another person symbolized by this person) is losing vitality and becoming dead. Dreaming that you are dead indicates that you are worried that you will become dead. This kind of dream about death sometimes involves people turning into stone statues. A 25-year-old girl dreamed that she had cooked dinner. She asked people to come for dinner but no one agreed. Only his own voice came back, like an echo from a deep cave. Her hair stood on end, and she felt that the whole room was empty. She rushed upstairs, and in the first bedroom, she saw her two sisters sitting stiffly on the two beds respectively, paying no attention to her anxious calls. She walked over and shook them awake, but suddenly realized that you were two stone statues. She fled into her mother's bedroom in terror. But her mother also turned into a stone... In desperation, she had to flee to her father's house... But her father was also a stone.
In addition, when a person feels "alive but dead", feels like a "walking zombie", feels that his heart is dead, and feels that he is no longer growing, he will dream about his own death.
By the way, the symbolic meanings of death and sleep are very similar. When a person dies, we say "rest in peace" and "sleep underground", which all point out that death is similar to sleep. The only difference between death and sleep is: if you die, you will not wake up again, but if you sleep, you will wake up again. In fact, in the spiritual world, death does not necessarily mean that you cannot be revived. The common theme of "resurrection" in the myths of various ethnic groups is that the soul can be revived after death and can be restored after losing vitality. "I dreamed that my wife was dead, lying in a coffin, wrapped in white cloth. I held her hand sadly and cried. Suddenly her hand became warmer, and she gradually came back to life."
The meaning of this dreamQuite simply, the dreamer discovered that his wife had lost her vitality. He is very sad. And his emotion awakened the sleeping love in his wife's heart, or the dead love, and made her regain her vitality.
Death also symbolizes forgetting, elimination, overcoming, etc.
A lovelorn woman often dreams about her former boyfriend. Then one day, she dreams that her boyfriend is dead. There were no events at the time that would have caused her to worry that something had happened to that person. She hadn't heard from him in several years.
Death here means forgetting, and the girl thought she had forgotten him. The day before the dream, she met a very good man. Perhaps the dream was showing that the new relationship gave way to the old relationship.
After receiving psychological counseling for a period of time, a man dreamed that he had killed someone. He leaned over to look at the dead man, only to find that it was also himself, but he looked very ugly.
I should celebrate him, because through psychological counseling, he killed the "past me" and the sick "me" with an ugly soul. "I dreamed that I was being killed, and a dagger was pierced into my chest. I was extremely angry, but the murderer said that this was just an operation. I fell to the ground and the murderer dissected me. At this time, I stood aside and looked at my body, and suddenly I realized that it was not me who died."
I personally am also receiving psychological treatment. From this dream it is clear that she sees the psychiatrist as a murderer because he killed her. He caused her pain. But later it was discovered that it was only her past who was killed, and after some spiritual rebirth, she lived a better life.
Therefore, dreaming about death is not necessarily a bad thing. If a good person or thing dies, that's a bad thing. If the dead are ugly and old, that's a good thing.
Ugly people in dreams represent bad things, evil, hatred, stupidity and all kinds of bad habits. Beautiful people represent good things.
Freud pointed out that dreaming about the death of relatives and friends and being very sad in the dream is often the reappearance of the wish for the death of relatives and friends in childhood. He pointed out that when a child is young, he will wish for the death of someone he dislikes. When a child hates his brothers and sisters with whom he shares the love of his parents, he also wishes for his death. In the minds of children, or in the subconscious of adults, letting others die is not a serious sin, it is just "so that he can never come back." When people resent others, they will dream about their death. If this other person is a relative, the dreamer will deliberately express excessive grief in the dream.
Of course, it is undeniable that sometimes dreaming about the death of relatives or friends may just represent a conjecture. For example, someone dreams that his grandfather is dead. Before going to bed he received a letter saying that his grandfather was ill. He would naturally think that older people are likely to die if they get sick. At this time, the dream just expresses a kind of worry and speculation.
