Dream of Deceased Grandmother Meaning


Dreaming about loved ones is quite normal, but it can feel strange when you have a dream of a deceased grandmother. She is no longer around to talk to you in your waking life, so it feels odd that she would suddenly appear in your dreams. After having a dream of a deceased grandmother, it is normal to wonder what is going on. Is she trying to tell you something from beyond? Is it just caused by your grief? Is the dream representing a feeling of guilt that you have? Depending on what happens in the dream, your dream of a deceased grandmother can have a variety of different meanings.

Dream of Deceased Grandmother Meaning

At a basic level, this dream is often a sign of your grief. Even if it has been years since your grandmother passed away, you still have memories of her. Memories of our loved ones are extremely strong. They resonate deeply in the subconscious mind, so these memories can reappear in our dreams for years or decades after a loved one passed away. Likewise, death leaves a strong mark on the psyche. Because of this, your dream meaning could be as simple as you love your grandmother, miss her and have strong memories of her.

Some people believe that a dream about a grandmother shows that you have found your inner child. Other dream interpreters think that it shows a desire to spend more time with her, although you cannot actually do that in your waking life. A dream about a grandmother often shows happiness for your future. A grandmother is typically someone that makes you feel love or supported. You may dream about her when you are in deep need of these feelings, or you may also have these dreams because you eel happy, loved and supported in your waking life.

Depending on what happens, the dream can mean a variety of different things. It is said that the grandmother archetype represents female influence and the feminine side of your nature. It may be a recognition of the self. If you argued with your grandmother in the dream, it may mean that you are conflicted about what is important in your waking life. You will have to resolve this internal conflict if you want to stop the arguments in your dream.

In some cases, your subconscious will give you a dream of a deceased grandmother who has passed on to the other side or who is communicating from heaven. These types of dreams are typically created by the subconscious mind to help you get over your grief. They are a reminder from your mind that, although you are mired in grief, your grandmother is at peace. Having this type of dream is actually a good sign because it shows that your subconscious mind is starting to accept that your grandmother has passed away and you are starting to heal. The memories of her will always be with you, but you are starting to move into a better state of psychological health.

Dreams about Deceased grandmother

If your dream has other family members in it, it may actually reflect more on the family members than on your grandmother. This type of dream may foretell a difficult problem in the future. You may feel stressed in your family relationships, and your subconscious mind may sense that more problems are coming your way. Your grandmother may be present in the dream to guide you or to provide you with emotional support as your subconscious tries to sort through these problems.

The meaning of your dream can also vary depending on what your subconscious mind connects grandmothers and older women to. Many cultures believe that grandmothers are connected to nature. They may show that you have to reconnect to the natural world and the true state or reality. You may be surrounded by stress in your waking life, so you have to reconnect to the real world in order to recharge and fulfill your desires in life.

Some people see their grandmother as a guardian angel. When she appears in their dream, it is a sign that the dreamer needs love and support. The grandmother in the dreams is there to help you talk through your problems and prepare for any difficulties in the road ahead. If you are talking to a deceased grandmother in your dreams, it may show that you feel like troubles are approaching you and you want her protection and advice.

Some people also believe that a grandmother in a dream is a sign of a coming inheritance. They think that it connects to family members and a need for affection. The exact meaning of your dream depends on what happens in the dream, who is present and how you feel in your waking life. Your subconscious connotations about your grandmother and other situations in your dream can also be used to personalize your dream interpretation.


  1. Hi, thank you for this piece. I had a dream begging my dead gramma for her blessings. She actually looks wealthy and healthy. But right there on her seat without a word, she gets me closer and held my tommy, while I held her shoulders begging her to release the blessings as I was feeling the pains severely on my abdomen. I couldn’t talk because of the pains, had to start pouring water on her to release my tommy if she is not ready to bless me. Please assist with interpretation. Thanks

    We are blessed with a baby girl recently. My wife was dreaming her deceased grand mom during pregnancy also. Is there any connection and what does the dreams mean.

    • Your wife’s dreams are manifestations of her emotional relationship with her late grandmother and her child. The lack of food could be an indication of your wife’s knowledge of suffering that her grandmother may have experienced during her life.

Oh by the way, I was her most loved and favorite grand son amongst…and was being nurtured by her till college days. I left her when I found work at other place and will met her once or twice a year during her birthday and our town fiesta. When she’s still alive she was very strict and very protective to me as a sign of her love. During her last and final day she waited me to come home and see me once before departing to the other side. During her last breath I hold her hand tighty while cyring a lot. At the same time I told her that no matter what happen please continue to guide and protect me at other side… Back to my dream, I saw and heard her talking to me angrily while I saw some foods beside her bed. What does it mean? Another thing also, in our local tradition even today, we used to offer foods and other thing(favorite foods of our deceased loved ones) while making prayers to them in home or while visiting cemetery.

    • Perhaps a part of your subconscious mind just wishes that all of you and your husband’s loved ones could be present for such a joyous experience. It is normal to dream about the deceased around major life milestones because you naturally want them to take part in the joy.

    • It is certain that the strength of your emotional relationship with your late grandmother has influenced the appearance of your dream. The behaviors of your brother within the dream could be a sign of your knowledge of their shared relationship. These dreams are reflections of your knowledge of influences in your life that cause your grandmother to appear.

  7. I dreamed I was in my deceased grandmother’s old house. I was standing in her room when she walked in. She seemed startled to see me. She said “Oh you’re here?” as if she was not expecting me to be there. I was woken up before I could say anything.

    • She most likely appeared in your dream because you miss her and want to be around her more. The fact that she wasn’t expecting you to be there may mean your subconscious recognizes that you shouldn’t actually be able to see her yet because she has passed on and you are still living. Even though it isn’t the same as getting to have her in your life still, at least this dream gave you a chance to be around your grandmother once more.

  9. My grandma passed away last year. I recently had a dream of her being in a hospital bed and she was being moved from ward to ward. She seemed fine until she tried to get off the hospital bed, both her legs were swollen and as she tried to walk she fell on the floor. She didn’t speak in my dream either.

    • This dream is a reflection of your emotional relationship with your late grandmother. Her experiences within the dream may be related to her experiences during the end of her life. Allow the negative aspects of this dream to fade. Honor her memory by sharing your kindness and compassion with everyone in your life.

  10. Thank you, yes she did experience some of these things before she passed away. I had another dream about her being in hospital but this time I had a baby in my hands and she was smiling at the baby. I heard her speak a little bit, she was trying to express something about her arm. What could this mean and is it common to have recurring dreams of grandma?

    • It could just represent the fact that you miss her. It is also quite common to dream about a deceased loved one around major milestones in your life because it is only natural for your subconscious mind to wish that they could be a part of those changes with you. Perhaps this recurring dream is just your subconscious mind wishing that you could be around your grandmother and have her see everything that you have accomplished in life.
