Ghost Dreams: What do They Mean?!

A Haunted Dream Interpretation…

What do ghost dreams mean? I’ve been asked this question quite a few times over the years. Unfortunately, most people believe that ghost dreams are a bad omen of some kind.  Most people believe either:

  1. Someone they know is going to die.
  2. Someone they know who HAS died is trying to get a message to them.

Actually, you’ll be relieved to know that neither is the case.  When one dreams of ghosts, the dream interpretation is actually simple. Think about one of the main words we associate with ghosts: HAUNTED.

Dreaming of a ghost (or ghosts) indicates that the dreamer is haunted by something in his or her life.  They could be haunted by guilt, they could be haunted by unfulfilled dreams, or they could be haunted by memories.  These types of things “haunt” most of us, at least to some extent.  However, some people have unresolved issues concerning these “haunts.”  If you dream of ghosts, it’s probable that something you may have thought was in the past isn’t “so” in the past after all.

The subconscious mind tries to “sort things out” while we’re sleeping. If you have had one or more dreams about ghosts, your subconscious mind is trying to make sense of (or sort out) something that haunts you.

Only the dreamer knows for certain. If you ever find yourself in a situation where you’re trying to get in touch with your dream’s meaning, below are a few tips that’ll help you – whether your dream was visited by ghosts or not:

  • Get in a quiet place with absolutely no distractions.  You don’t want anything causing your mind to wander while it’s trying to figure out your dreams.
  • Clear your mind of any stray thoughts or worries.
  • Breath deeply and focus all of your energy on the interpretation of your dream.

If other people are in the house, one of the best spots to reflect upon your dreams may be an unusual place: The shower or bathtub!  Think about it – people are less likely to disturb you here than anywhere else.

Finally, please keep in mind that dreams are not omens.  They are simply dreams.  That’s it!
