Ghost Dream Meaning
While ghosts in dreams can have a few different meanings, it deals with personal and emotional situations. You see, negative emotions lead to scary dreams. That’s the case 99% of the time, but you could still have a ghostly visitation. It’s pretty rare, though. Psychics or mediums are far more likely to have that kind of experience. For us regular joes, it’s likely emotions that trigger a ghost dream.
These emotions include:
Anxiety tends to cause ghosts in dreams more often than the others. It’s the worry of the unknown that is a catalyst. I get asked about ghost dreams by many people about to have a major life event.
Those events are:
- leaving home for college
- getting married
- the death of a parent
- having a baby
- buying a home
The ghost itself represents your brain trying to solve the problem: It’s you. To tell what the problem is, look at the ghost’s actions. Is it chasing you? That’s fear. Is it breaking down a door? You feel forced to make a decision. Does it chase you out of your house? You don’t feel safe or secure. Does the ghost take food away? You have financial woes.
Your brain is a magnificent and magical part of you, and it finds creative ways to help you solve problems. Even if they’re a little scary.
Dreaming of ghosts is just one way to solve them. Once you figure it out AND solve the situation, the ghost will leave your dreams.
