Meanings of dreaming about dead

Dreaming of deceased relatives: dreaming of a deceased relative even if it is an ancestor you have not known has a very powerful and concrete meaning. They come to give you information about your personality, how you are behaving and your way of life.

If the relationship that existed between the deceased relative and you was very close, it might mean that you miss that person and if it was one of complicity you may be needing the support that person gave you.

Sometimes your subconscious will bring the memory of that person into your dreams as an acknowledgement that you left unfinished business. Many times the dream you may have about a deceased person reveals that you still cannot get over their death.

Dreaming that a deceased person is alive is one of the most recurrent dreams with dead people, most of the time, it is a reminder that that person is no longer with you physically. It is to be expected that a deceased person, especially if you were fond of him, will continue to live in your memory and dreams.

But mostly dreams where the deceased is alive mean that you are trying to resolve the feelings you had for that person.
