It is understandable to be creeped out if you dream about a person who is supposed to be dead. Some believe that the dead turn out in dreams to “invite” the dreamer to come with them to the other side.
That sure is pure horror movie stuff.
When you interpret dreams that involve a dead person, you must analyze the dream based on the person’s relationship with you, the circumstances in the dream and your own state of mind.
Maybe you have just been thinking of a beloved who is long gone. what if the person you dreamed of dead is still alive in reality?
Are you suddenly turning into a fortune teller or prophet?
Generally, the dead person represents a period of your life that you consider to be “dead”.
If the person is truly dead in real life then maybe you just want to leave the memories involving that person behind. It is like an ultimate goodbye. Some people who have lost a loved one will immediately dream about that loved one.
It may be a form of saying goodbye or it may be due to thinking about that person a lot recently. If the person is still alive in real life, you may just want to say goodbye to the memories you have with that person.
Relationship of the dead person with you
Your dream meaning can depend on whether the dead person is close to you or not. Your relationship with the person will show insights as to your dream’s true meaning.
Maybe, there is something about the dead person’s life that is not worth imitating for it can only cause you trouble and even death.
Circumstances behind the person’s death
Maybe you dreamed of the person because of the extraordinary circumstances behind his death. For example, a neighbor’s suicide can linger inside your mind because the cause of death is traumatic. You may not be close to this person but the impact is right there.
