Off The Record
What Does it Symbolize When a Person Who Passed Away Shows up in Your Dream
There are those who don’t dream at all, and those who can’t recall the events in the dream.
Do dreams really imply anything, though? However, some scientists argue that dreams are just the consequence of neuronal processes occurring within our brains, while others believe they are a form of signals received from forces we cannot see or feel while awake.
While our bodies are at rest, our minds are busy doing other things.
Sometimes, dreams happen according to the day’s events, or subconscious anxieties manifesting themselves, can both give rise to nightmares. When we dream about someone who has passed away, what does that signal?
We can interpret these dreams as a part of our personal journey through loss or change. Healthline suggests the latter is the cause.
This type of dream typically occurs after major life changes, such as starting a new career, relocating, or making a new friend.
More important than the dream itself is how it makes us feel.
Rubin Naiman, a psychologist with a doctorate, dedicated most of his life to studying people’s sleeping routines. He claims that “Dream interpretation is about decoding the dream. It enlightens us and expands our awareness psychologically, [offering an] expansion of consciousness.”
So, dreaming of someone who is no longer alive may be related to the changes mentioned above and how those changes affect us.
”A lot of contemporary neuroscientists believe during REM sleep, the brain is involved in maintenance tasks, and it accidentally ‘kicks up dust,’ visually. At that end, dreaming is considered totally meaningless.” On the other hand he explains, “The other end is that dreaming is more substantial than waking. And we see this in ‘dream cultures,’ such as the indigenous people of Australia, who believe dreaming is intrinsic to our spiritual existence.”
There are four distinct types of dreams, according to the experts.
The grieving process may be reflected in dreams about a departed loved one.
2. We may feel guilty since we failed to make peace with the departed before they passed away, which could explain why we see them in our dreams.
3. According to dream analyst Lauri Loewenberg, we may be dreaming about a deceased person if we recognize aspects of their tendencies, such as substance misuse, in ourselves.
4. Seeing a deceased loved one in a favorable state in a dream—for example, if they are well-dressed or appear happy—has been interpreted by some as a visit from the spirit world. In a dream, a loved one who has passed on may greet us if we interpret it positively.
Regardless of our opinions, the truth is that dreams provide us with something worthwhile. They shed light on our relationship with the departed and the state of our own souls.
