When you see someone from your past in the dream, it can be thrilling at first. After a loved one dies, you may fear never seeing them again. First, you start to forget the way their voice sounded or the way they looked when they laughed. Before long, it feels like you are forgetting everything about them. When you finally dream about your loved one, it can be a bit of a relief. Even if it was not a particularly positive dream, it still feels good to be close to your loved one again.

While it may be a relief at times, seeing a dead person alive in your dream can also be quite terrifying. You may be afraid that they have come back to earth to haunt you for a mistake or argument you had together. You may be worried that they have unfinished business or that something is wrong. If you are worried about seeing a dead person alive in your dream, read on to find out why this happens.

dreaming of a dead loved one being alive

Losing someone is never easy. If you are lucky, you know that they are ill in advance. This gives your loved one time to make amends and say good-bye to everyone. In some cases, the family members do not have enough time to say good-bye. A brutal attack or car crash can take a loved one away before you get to make amends.

When this happens, moving on becomes even harder. As much as you want to heal, you can’t. You know that you never apologized for an argument or an unkind word, so you feel haunted by the past. When this type of situation happens, it can lead you to dream about your loved one. You see them alive in the dream because you want another chance to talk to them. This is your opportunity to make amends. You were unable to in real life, so your subconscious mind gave you another opportunity in your dream.

You Miss Them

Another more obvious answer is that you miss the. You do not get to have that person around you anymore, and you miss having their insight. Because you miss them, they began to appear in your dreams. This is especially common if you think about your loved one a lot. Your subconscious mind tends to pull from your thoughts and memories to create your dreams. If you are thinking about your loved one all the time, then it is more likely that you will ultimately have a dream about them.

You Aren’t Listening

Some mystics believe that the dead return to our dreams to give us advice or share a warning. While this is probably not the case, there is an underlying truth in the argument. Sometimes, there are mistakes that we make in our everyday life that we do not recognize. You may be convinced that you are doing things the right way and are unwilling to listen to anyone else’s advice.

In this type of circumstance, the dead may return to your dreams to give you the advice that you so separately need. Your dead friend is not actually giving you advice. Instead, your subconscious chose their image to be the advice giver. Your subconscious mind may realize that you have a problem, so it chose a friendly, kind person to give you the advice in the dream. Since you were unwilling to take the advice on your own, this dream was basically your mind’s way of tricking you into doing the right thing.

You Do Not Accept the Past

Another common reason for dreaming that a dead person is alive is because you want them to be alive. Even though you logically know that they have passed on into the next world, a part of your mind does not believe it. Your subconscious still feels like your loved one could walk around the corner and sit down for dinner. Since a part of you has not accepted their death, you keep dreaming that they are real and still alive.

Other Interpretations

This type of dream has been dealt with since humanity first began. Depending on where you are in the world, the dream interpretation can vary. In one old book, seeing dead people as alive in your dream was a sign of good events for your family. They thought it was a sign of positive dreams like a wedding or a marriage.

In pagan cultures, the dream was a sign that you should follow the dead person’s request to avoid angering the gods. Another culture says that seeing a dead relative right before a wedding is a warning that the marriage will not work out. There is no general consensus on the dream’s meaning though, so your best bet is to analyze what happens in your dream and figure out the meaning that makes the most sense for your personal situation.
