7 Meanings When You Dream of Someone Who Is Already Dead

Have you recently dreamt of a dead person? Do you often have dreams of someone who is already dead? Such dreams can leave you feeling shocked and shaken, mostly because of the mystery and fear surrounding death espoused in many cultures.

Explaining to others that you dreamt of a deceased friend, relative, or acquaintance can be equally hard, as you might be perceived as crazy. But, you are not crazy! It is possible to dream of a dead person, and such as an experience might carry a lot of meaning and symbolism.

So, if you are curious and wondering what it means when you dream of someone who is already dead, you have come to the right place. This article will explore the different meanings of dream visitations. Read on to find out more!

Dream of Someone Who Is Already Dead

Can The Dead Really Visit Us in Our Dreams?

Dream visitations are dreams where you see a deceased person. You may see a close relative or friend, experience their presence, and maybe even talk to them. Visitations can be hard to explain to others or even prove because of our beliefs about death. There is no scientific proof of heaven, hell, or the afterlife; only when you personally experience a dream visitation of a loved one will you know that the dead can visit us in our dreams.

Dreaming about a loved one is a personal experience. The interpretation of what the dream means will mostly depend on your state of mind, the life situation you are currently in, and the nature of the relationship you had with the deceased, etc.

Now let’s look at some possible explanations of what it means to dream of someone who is already dead.

1. You are processing your grief

The most common reason you might dream of someone who is already deceased is that your brain is trying to process your feelings about this person that have come to your conscious awareness. When the thoughts and feelings buried deep in our subconscious rise to our conscious awareness, they manifest in dream form.

According to the renowned psychotherapist Sigmund Freud, dreams are our subconscious way of fulfilling our wishes. The information we store in our minds throughout the day can be reflected in our dreams.

If you have been thinking about a loved one a lot, you might end up dreaming of them. If this person is recently deceased and you are grieving them, dreaming of them could be your mind’s way of helping you process and cope with the grief.

2. You need to work on a pending issue

Do you have something you need to deal with but keep postponing? It could be that work is piling up and stressing you out. Perhaps you are fiddling with an overdue meeting to deliver not-so-great news. Or, it might be a confrontation you are avoiding, but one you must have.

Something weighing down on your mind can be very stressful, but the more you postpone it, the deeper in trouble you will get yourself. Seeing a deceased one, especially if you worked or solved problems together, could signify that you need to put your head down and work on the issue you have kept postponing. Otherwise, your inaction will result in major problems and possible loss, for example, losing a client, which can negatively impact your financial well-being.

3. You are struggling with the ending of a relationship

In many cultures, death symbolizes an ending. We use phrases such as ‘end of life,’ ‘transition,’ ‘expire’ to refer to the finality of death. From this, dreams about death or deceased people symbolize the end of something we hold dear.

When you dream of someone already dead, you could be mourning the fact that you broke up with someone you love in real life.

If you have ever been through a breakup, you know how much it can hurt and the difficulty of dealing with such an event. It is common for people to describe their breakup with phrases like ‘it hurts like death’ or ‘it felt like I was dying.’

Struggling with a breakup can bring up memories of how you felt when the deceased passed on. These feelings and memories will be stored in your subconscious and may go on to be embodied in a dream where you see your deceased relative, friend, or acquaintance.

4. You need the deceased’s guidance

Did you depend on the deceased for guidance? If so, you might end up dreaming of them, especially if you are grappling with a tough decision or a difficult situation in which you could use some sage advice or encouragement.

Think about the kind of advice the deceased would give you on a typical day. Consider how they navigated problems in their own life. If you looked up to them as a mentor and guide, then dreaming about them could be a sign that you should emulate their problem-solving approach to solve the problems you are facing.

5. You need to bring balance into your life

When a deceased loved one visits you in your dreams, they could be sending you a powerful message to spend more time with the loved ones in your life.

The dream could be a reminder of life’s fleeting temporariness and the importance of making the most of the limited time you have with your close friends and relatives. You never know when their life will come to an end, and you can no longer talk, laugh, hug, or be with them.

Now is a good time to take stock of your life. If you have been spending a disproportionate amount of time on work or a hobby, for example, and you haven’t been so present in the lives of your loved ones, consider creating more balance if you truly care.

In our busy world, achieving balance is not easy, but what is even harder is losing a loved one and dealing with guilt for not spending time with them. Then, it would be a little too late.

6. Brace yourself for tough times

Many people report dreaming of parents who are already dead. While the death of any loved one can be a profound loss, the death of a parent can be particularly tough, especially if you had a close relationship.

Having a dream visitation from your parents can signify a difficult situation lurking around the corner. You must be prepared to deal with whatever may come your way. On the upside, you don’t have to feel alone; even though your parents are no longer with you physically, their respective spirits are watching over you.

The tough situation lurking around might not be unavoidable. But, by visiting you in your dreams, your parents are letting you know that you can take comfort in the knowledge that you are loved, guided, and supported.

7. You are on the right track, and all will be well

Dreaming of a friend or relative who is already dead does not always spell doom and gloom. If the deceased is happily smiling, they could be communicating the message that they are well, healthy, and at peace, and you do not have to worry. Although you might wake up feeling shaken after seeing your deceased loved one, the good news is you can rest assured that they are not suffering in any way.

If you are pursuing something, say a business deal, promotion, relationship, or any other worthwhile opportunity, dreaming of a deceased one smiling at you might signify that you are on the right path, doing well, and you should keep going.

You might also dream of your deceased loved one hugging you. You might not communicate in words or using a familiar language, but you will just understand what they were telling you when you wake up.

When you dream of someone who is already dead hugging you, it could be their way of saying they are fine and proud of you. This is definitely good news if you are getting ready to move on, for example, starting a new relationship after losing your beloved. You might be feeling guilty about moving on, but take the smile and hug from your deceased loved one as a sign that they are fine with you taking the next steps in your life.

What Does It Mean When You Dream of Someone Who Is Already Dead?

Processing the overwhelming emotions that come with losing a loved one can be hard. Seeing this person in your dreams can bring a sense of relief. But, it can also leave you feeling confused about why you’d dream of someone already dead.

A dream visitation is often a positive sign.  Your loved one is coming back to you to assure you that they are fine and are ready to move on to the other world. Dreaming of them could also be their way of guiding you and subtly helping you navigate the various situations in your life. Take heart, their presence will always be with you.

        • I CAN RELATE. My mum passed August 24 2021. She was everything to me. For a fact, I thought life couldn’t go on my me and my two sisters without her. I have seen her a couple of times in the dream but this time it was different. Cus we actually had a family meeting where she gave us lots of wisdom and the most amazing part is, she played the piano. (Song titled, Nearer my God to thee).
          We cried a little bit and the I and my sisters gave her a warm hug.
          Then we all started a road trip.
          It got confusing along the way cus in the middle of nowhere I needed to pee so I asked the driver to stop…That was where I saw snakes as I was peeing,Snakes where everywhere… every kind of snake was there and shockingly non of them where neither trying to ham me nor anyone arround, I saw aquatic snakes, snakes in holes, snakes on the ground, and before I got in the car one other passenger in the vehicle was biten by one snake but the snake did not release Vernon so she was not harmed, the held the snake and released it.
          That was the point I woke up.

      • My mom passed away 3 years ago. I wasn’t there when she had a heart attack. I was at home. But I keep having dreams of my mom eating a sub way sandwich and have a heart attack fell on the floor while her boyfriend just standing there and watched her die that was in my dreams..Keep having this same dreams repeat over and over again. This Dream It just make me feel guilty. I am perfectly happy with my life and with my 3 years old. But she had a heart attack but that what dr said. But my mother boyfriend he also had alot of ex wife and wife and girlfriends who also had a heart attacks in the past before he met my mother. I just don’t understand because she was perfectly healthy before she passed away. Maybe because I feel guilty because I wasn’t there for her to save her I guess. I asked my mom boyfriend what had happened to her? He told me that he was in the shower when it happens ..

      • Sending you hugs ….I lost my mom in April
        2021 …She was 63…I still can’t accept that she is gone .She was a doctor. I lost my grandma (maternal-mom’s mom) in 2009 , she is my everything she dint just give me property but she bought me up with a lot of love and care . I’m 37 I have a 10 year old daughter who I believe is my grandma re-born to me . My so called husband is very abusive ,we don’t have any relationship,except on papers . I don’t have a shoulder to cry on perhaps that’s why I see my dead relatives in my dreams all the time . My dad is Ukranian he is also a doctor,he ,my step mom and half sister are out of Ukraine now but several realatives are still in Ukraine, hence I worry a lot about them .I’m trying to cry less and pray more

        • God do not want you to live in an abusive marriage. There is no love in that. Seek God’s direction. He will make away for your escape. There are so much joy and happiness on the other side of pain. Praying for your strength, comfort, peace and harmony.

    • I do believe our loved ones come to us in our dreams. I dream of my mother and father all the time. They died five weeks apart. My father with cancer and my mother with kidney failure. When I dream of them, I never realize they are dead in my dreams. I am not afraid, and it seems so normal that I am with them.

      • I try to find answers. I just had a dream about my son that died in April 2011 last night we gave each other a big hug ask him if he was ok he said yes I ask him if he was feel well he said yes but it’s more then that. Have no clue what he was talking about I happy to wrap my arms around him. I woke up with both of my arms around me. My son was only 30 years old died of a blood clot in his head that broke. My mother and him were only 4 months apart my mom passed in Dec 2010 then my son April 2011 right to the day they were very close with his grandmother . I miss them all everyday.

    • some of you don’t look at the bigger picture. you just believe what you think you believe and you don’t dig deeper. these “meanings” are not even close to what i would describe. i visited my deceased grandmother who was with her deceased sister. they didn’t visit me. i believe it is a much deeper meaning that what i’m reading and i can’t find any answers.

    • Isn’t it strange how we dream our loved ones are doing very mundane things,but it could still mean something, I dreamt the other night of my mum,I was walking down a long passage then I was in the kitchen of where I lived as a child,my mum was standing by an oven,she looked like she was frying something,something I’d seen her do a million times,I think I called her name,she turned round and faced me,but I don’t remember her speaking,the clothes she was wearing I recognised,then I think the dream was over,what it means I’m not sure.

  4. I lost my boyfriend of 4 years in the beginning of 2020 and to say the least it has been a journey through emptiness and a whole lot of hurt. Periodically I would have dreams about him but most recently this one was intense, it seemed so real. I almost feel upset at myself for having the dream now because I feel like my grieving process has started all over again. If I didn’t believe in dream visitation before I definitely do now.

      • Yeah it’s kind of bitter/sweet tho. Cause at least you have closure. My x husband died in my daughters arms and Infront of my 3 grandchildren of a heart attack. And the next day I started dreaming with him. He came to me quick and has never left me in about to be 3 year’s now. Yet my daughter has not had 1 dream as of yet? That I’m super confused about that also? But well just in brace however your dreams with your beloved. That thankfully you are having dreams 😏 God bless you.

    • Yes! I’ve noticed the peace and happiness too. My husband was murdered in June 2021. I had a dream of him, he was dressed in white, but he didn’t speak, and looked like he did 30 years ago. I woke myself up by talking out loud. I also woke up crying. I was supposed to have been with him the day he was shot. Something kept me from getting there that day. If I’d have been there as planned, I would have been shot too. Something supernatural kept me in one place, preventing me from going, I believe. It’s very strange.

  5. I was extremely close with both my mother and father. Losing them was terrible and I miss them still, after many years without them. I dream of both of them often, both not together in the same dreams necessarily. What a blessing! They both look happy and healthy and we are talking. It is a wonderful visit and assures me that they are okay. My faith and trust in Jesus tells me I will be with them again one sweet day.

In the dream i fell to the ground and started to cry. Then, i ran to my grandfather and hugged him tight and he smiled a wholesome smile.

      • Wow I have dreams of my twin sister she would scare me like she never died and just got out of hospital and she would say to me relax I’m fine I’m actually alive but I would be crying over and over again in my dream & telling her off please don’t do that. Then sometimes in dreams she would rock up and we’ll go for drives in the car and she seems so happy and looks bright and wavy hair when in life she always had straight hair. But she would always say I’m ok I’m alive and I always would be like Don’t ever fake die on me again!!!!!

  6. My grandson who is 21 was born with a veil over his face.
    He has had experience of psychic since he was 3 yrs old.
    His best friends sister recently committed suicide.
    She came to my grandson in a dream. He said, I was walking on a bright day , down the street, and she was walking with him.
    She kept saying to my grandson ” I’m not supposed to be here.”
    Soon they went right in an alley way…it was dark …then my grandson said, a giant black figure was walking towards us.
    The alleyway was dark. Then he said he saw an old old bldg.
    That sort of looked like an old Roman church. He said the doors
    We’re gigantic…there was only a light at the top of this old Churchill bldg. The whole time, the girl who was walking with him, that had committed suicide, kept saying ” I’m not supposed to be here” …louder and louder…..my grandson said he was so scared of this black figure of a person, that when the figure was near them, he awoke. He rememberedevery bit of that dream…
    My question, was this bldg. Heavens gate? Or was this girl in purgatory? Or why was this dead girl , who had killed herself, saying ” I’m not supposed to be here ” to my grandson.?
    Let me just say that my grandson at the age of 4, came to me , while I was waiting for my daughter, his mom, to come home,
    And she wass late…he said ” I know where she Is..so we got in my car and he took me to crystal lake, where we found her walking at 1 am , her car broke down. She had no shoes on, and he told me that she had no shoes on when we were at home…
    Could this dead girl , be trying to tell him something about her death. Maybe she didn’t commit suicide , maybe she was killed.
    They found her hanging on a bridge, with rope , I believe around her neck. Can somebody comment?

    • Yeah, it’s possible that she have been murdered and she cannot accept her miserable death. Maybe she’s asking for help to your grandson to solve what happened or There might be Unfinished business with him.

  7. I had a dream of my deceased partner, he’s been gone 2 months.
    I walk into this house, I see his backside, not his face. He walks away and goes to the washroom. I follow, and when I get to the door, I look in and he’s sitting in the bathtub taking a bath. He’s sitting upright, but yet I still cant see his face cause the shower curtain is pulled so as to not show his face, but he’s got soap nd he’s lathering his hands so much that the lather is pure white, nd bubbly. I just stand there and we don’t say anything. The dream ends. I wake up so confused and sad…why this kind of dream of him when I’ve been anticipating my 1st visit from him. No words.

  9. My older brother passed away Christmas night 2000, and after all these years I dreamed of him. We were laughing and he was smiling and he hugged me. I remember I felt like I had been looking for him and finally found him. When he hugged me I didn’t want him to go but he was showing n pushing me Togo the opposite way than he was going. I woke up feeling so sad but happy because he looked just as he did before he passed and I miss him so much. What does all this mean? Does he know I’m so sad n depressed all the time? Or was he mad n pushing me away? Plz help me.

    Reply
    • Please don’t worry. I have studied near death experiences for over 40 years. A common theme is a loved one who has passed will tell their loved one who is still on earth to go the opposite way because it’s not their time yet. Since you were dreaming it could be your brother wasn’t able to verbalize this to you. Please know your brother loves you very much and probably didn’t want to interfere when you still have much to do in your life here. He only wishes all the best for you and I’m sure he would not want you to feel bad or be depressed. See your doctor for help with being depressed and sad. ❤️

  12. I lost my Papa this October. I’ve had two dreams of him- in one I went back in time and was able to spend another day with him, and in the other I had a hallucination about him(not in real life, in the dream) and I told the rest of family because I wanted them to come to go see him. They didn’t believe me, and when we went there, he had disappeared.

  18. I lost my mother when I was 4 years old (2014). Her death was caused by Breath Cancer.
    it has been 7 years. I just had a dream that my mother came back to life, we ate 7 year old cake!! But she died again. I am really confused about this dream, and why she died again. I really was focusing when they said they are ready to leave this world. I have hold my mom closed to my heart and wished she never left. I now know I have been holding her back. I also think that she is ready to leave. When it was my moms death date, I saw 7 ambulances and 2 firetrucks. My dad is a fire fighter and I am always worried for him. Please when a ambulance goes by and their lights are on, pray that, that person is safe. Please.
    I pray that who ever has gone through something like this is safe, secure and does not feel any pain anymore. I also pray that your close one is safe. She or he is ready to leave, don’t worry, God will protect you.

  20. My mom passed in 2004. I could not bury her. I have dreamt about her several times before. Today I dreamt I saw my mom leaving our home in Africa going to hospital and my brother came back telling me she was dead. My brother is also dead (2008). I was crying so much and I could see my mom’s coffin. And I woke up. I am waiting for important work news. My mother and I were very close. We shared deep secrets. We never talked. She was my best friend. I miss and Love you mom.

  21. I’m kinda freaked out about this dream I had. I was rushed to the hospital (it was urgent like I wasn’t dying) I looked out the double doors and saw a very clear image of my stepdad who passed away 22 years ago (him and I did not see eye to eye). I saw his face, his jeans he wore everyday, his regular red t-shirt, baseball hat & work boots. I’m really freaked out and need someone’s perspective.

  23. I lost my 14 years partner a month ago. I was greving and was about to go into a depression. Someone was always with me in the house. When I had to be along in the house, the first night along I dream about him. The 2nd night I dream about him also. Both nights the dream was very pleasant. The whole time I had someone in the house with me I never dream about him. From that I’m looking forward to dream about him. The dreams was about the little things I use to fuss at him about, and in the dream those little thing was an honor. I wish he was here doing those little things that I use to fuss at.

  27. I dreamed of my beloved Grandmother, from which i was very close. In my dream visitation, we met as we used to do, in a very friendly and happy way at her house. She was in good health, smiling, and said hello to me. The moment we would talk, I woke up. I have never dreamed of my Granny before. She passed away 3 years ago. What does that mean?

  28. I lost my uncle last year due to covid. I was close to him but not as my other family members but other don’t see him in their dream as me on regular basis. I dream about him most of the times and for last few times I see he is trying to speak to my grandfather regarding something important, wants to discuss and then trying to find something at home due to which he is really worried. Most of the times I see we all are sitting together and talking like we used to do. But from last 2-3 times I am watching almost the same thing, as he is worried or tensed and wants to discuss.

    I wake up after watching these. Ofcourse we miss him alot, it doesn’t feel like he is no more. It seems we all will be at home and have party like always. Still I get worried with my same dream pattern.

  30. My sister died in 2017; last night I had a dream that she was walking me out to my car. Outside law enforcement, plain clothes, were sitting around. As I tried to find were I parked, on the street, I asked if she would be okay because I did not trust them being around. Then I asked where was my car and she pointed and said, “you parked over there” but my car was not present. I kept looking, she kept pointing, then I awakened.

  33. I know this may sound or seem weird but true story. I lost my mom in 2014 I was only 16 at the time and for the first few months she would visit me in my dreams and then a few days later there was either a family friend death or a family death. And then her visitations stopped. Last night I dreamt of my papa I lost in 2017 and I remember in my dream denying his presence because I knew he had passed but i in the dream we hugged and talked and I don’t know what my dream meant with him and I would like someone who knows about this kind of stuff to give me some insite on this stuff if possible

  36. My ex from high school passed away a couple months ago from a motorcycle accident. We didn’t date long but we ended on good terms. I dreamt about him last night and I’m hoping it wasn’t for anything bad. When I heard about his death, it shocked me and I was so sad. But I’m in a happy relationship now. It’s been years since I thought about him though.

  37. I had an unpleasant dream about some of my family members who have passed away years ago and other family members who are still alive. They were all pretty banged & bruised up, and some of their body parts were on the outside of their body like they were being tortured. Some of someone else’s skin was next to the person who was still alive like in a metal box and also between someone who passed away about 5 years ago. I saw my cousin who is perfectly healthy in real life, she was on the floor rotting away and her skin looked horrible and teeth/mouth was black. I asked what happened and all they were saying is that they went through something horrible. They were like in a place where you dispose of old food and it didn’t smell nice at all.

  40. I dreamed of my mother last night, who died 22 years ago. She hugged me and I could feel her soft skin and smell her lotion. She whispered to me but I couldn’t tell what the words were. I said “I love you, Mommy” (I never called her Mommy in real life, not even as a child… it was always Mama or Mom). I felt her nod. Then it was over. I woke up feeling calm and peaceful, could still feel and smell her.

  41. I lost my father 20 years ago, and my mother 2 years ago.

    A few weeks after he died I had an incredibly vivid dream where he came and kissed me on the cheek. It was so realistic, I could actually feel the stubble on his face as it rubbed against my cheek.

    I never dreamed about my mother until the last week. She’s been there every night. And, it has been equally vivid and realistic. She doesn’t say much, but she’s there. And I wake up feeling like she’s visiting me at night.

    I’m not sure if I believe in relatives who’ve passed away “visiting” us in our dreams. I tend to lean towards it is just my subconscious mind processing things while I sleep. But, it seems so realistic. Maybe there is something to it.

  42. A few years ago my grandmother passed away. We had a great relationship. About a week after she passed away, I had a dream about her. She gave me a warm hug and I remember crying, yet also feeling immensely happy for her that she was okay. I could even smell the perfume she used. It felt incredibly emotional and it felt like a real hug. It felt like she came to me in my dream to say goodbye and to let me know she was alright and moving on. It was the most bizarre feeling.

  45. My daddy passed in 2006
    Mom in 2012
    My uncle passed in 2010
    My grandmother in 1994
    And grandaddy in 1997

    My parents divorced when I was 3 or 4. AT 5 my daddy had custody of me and my brother that was a year older and we lived with my daddy at my grandmother and grandaddy house.
    My grandparents had a hate relationship. I never really knew my grandaddy the whole time I live with him and my grandmother was just mean and she had her favorites in the family and I was not one of them.
    I’m the baby of 5, coming from divorced parents I have no memory of my parents in the same room. Never my mother in the same room as my grandparents much less same house.
    So what’s crazy about my dreams to me are that my dreams always take place at my grandmother and grandaddy house. And in some of my dreams everybody would be under the same roof.
    If I can Remember anything about my dreams it’s not much, but who was in them I remember and where.
    It’s really strange seeing them all in the same house. Sometimes I can feel the tension as if they were alive and all in the same house.
    My dreams don’t scare me.
    Iv had 1 experience from my daddy waking me up letting me know he was ok. That was about 6 or 7 months after he passed.
    And then it was an emotional experience but at the same time a very peaceful experience.
    My dreams happen pretty often. Atleast once a week I dream of my dead family. Another crazy thing is that all my dreams are of the dead.
    I don’t know what I’m suppose to be taking in or learning from my dreams. I just hope that one of them let’s me know of a buried treasure that nobody else knows about.

  52. What does it mean if you dream of someone who has passed away but you’ve never met them and they look at you smiling like they do know you?
    It’s a guy I sort of know girlfriends mum who passed last year. I’ve had flickering lights at the same rate as well in different spots and they just stop flickering after maybe 5 mins like nothings wrong

    • I see someone I’ve never met as well but I don”t see flickering lights, I see shadows running around me even in the daytime! What’s even weirder is that the person I see is Bob Ross and I’m a 15 year old artist and I have been so confused on what it means, I hope we get an answer.

  53. I lost my girlfriend last May 6 due to aneurysm. I’m wondering why I haven’t even got the chance to dream about her. We’ve known each other for 5 months before she died, but we were together for more than a month before I lost her. Is it possible that her memory of me has been erased?

  54. My great-grandmother passed away on October 8 of last year. She was a true Christian believer and never missed a day in church, until she was dying from a certain cancer. I often have dreams about her visiting me. She’s usually smiling, happy, and no longer in pain. Every great once and a while, she’d hug me and my sisters in my dream. I think that she’s letting me know that she’s safe in the Lord’s House in Heaven. Other times she appears at my Mimi’s house with us on our annual Christmas celebration, just like the old days. I miss her terribly, but I know that she’s with God in Heaven Above, and that we’d see each other again soon.

  55. Thanks for the opportunity to share something with you.

    Dad and Mom are no longer with us. While Dad passed away 30 years ago, Mom left us 20 years later and l’ve never dreamed of her.

    On the contrary, l occasionally dream about Dad who used to be closer to me. One particular dream has left me slack-jawed in speechless wonder. In this dream he and l fell of a cliff during a stroll in the countryside and l managed to seize him by his hands as we prepared ourselves for Humpty Dumpty episode 2. Fortunately both of us fell on some soft ground- unhurt. This was a great relief to me but my excitement was short-lived because unlike me, Dad failed to successfully rise up to walk to safety. He rolled further down the slope and hit one of his legs onto a rock that severely injured him.

    In shock, l somehow managed to mobilize support from some strangers to attend to him before getting him to hospital. I ain’t blessed with the power to inteprete this dream. Maybe someone like you can.
