Dreaming of ghosts

Dreaming of ghosts

Because of the fact that dreams are coded into symbols many people get them wrong as a result of decoding the symbols in an incorrect way.

What most people don't know about these symbols is that they are specific to the person and that they don't have a general meaning. Unless that symbol is a ghost or something that Everyone thinks of using the same way then the symbol could have a different meaning based on the dreamer's background.

If both me and a friend of mine saw a cat in a dream then the two dreams might have a different meaning because each one of us has different beliefs about cats.

What does it mean when you dream about a ghost?

If you dreamed that a ghost is chasing you then this may mean that there is something in you real life that is disturbing you.

This ghost may be a representation of a problem that you are afraid to face. Again understanding the symbol in a dream can only happen within the context of the events that are currently taking place in your life.

For example If you were afraid of the exams then saw a ghost chasing you in a dream then this ghost might be a reflection of your fears of your exams. If after the exams ended you had this dream then it might have another meaning based on the events that are currently taking place in your life.

If you attempted to attack the ghost in the dream then this may mean that you are doing your best to face the problems. If you were terrified and did nothing then most probably this dream is just a message from your subconscious mind telling you that you should take actions instead of just standing still or running away from your problems.

Recurring dreams about ghosts

If the dream about the ghost is a recurring one then most probably your subconscious mind is trying to remind you over and over of the same issue that you are ignoring.

Recurring dreams are in fact like alarm clocks with snooze turned on. If you didn't wake up and stop the alarm completely then few minutes later it will ring once again.

The same goes for your mind when it comes to recurring dreams. If you didn't respond to the dream by taking proper actions then your dream will keep visiting you over and over again.
