Envisioning someone who is already deceased calling out to you in a dream often reveals that someone in reality is in need of your assistance. In a general sense, this symbol shows you someone who has already left this world as a representation of what someone in your reality needs from you.

You are just the person they need to help them make good choices. On the other hand, if you did not recognize the dead person or know how they died, it could just mean that you have a special skill set meant to help others that you are not using yet.

Dead baby

A dead baby is a bad omen especially in terms of business and finances. Babies typically symbolize new beginnings, opportunities and hope, so a lifeless baby portends a potential failure which would be significant enough to drive you to possible depression.

This also suggests a period of mourning, not for a dead loved one, but for the loss of an opportunity.

Someone dead

Envisioning someone you know as dead while in REM sleep is an ominous symbol according the work of Miller.

If you did not recognize the individual who had passed away in the vision, it could suggest that you would offend someone you would not normally suspect, likely in a surprising or unbelievable turn of events.

Envisioning your late mother inviting you to travel with her, whether it is on a day trip to somewhere nearby or some form of international travel, suggests good things are coming your way.

For example, single people may soon meet and fall in love with their one true love, or those searching for a job may land a position at the company of their dreams.

Talking with people about a dead person

Dreaming of having a conversation where you are talking with people about a dead person indicates a possibility of potential problems, conflicts, or some form of disagreements with your superiors at work.

A dead person giving you food

The dream scenario of a dead person offering you food reveals your attraction to emotionally unavailable people. Freud often attributes sexual connotations to dream symbols like food, so this dream suggests a yearning for affection from someone who may not be ready to show their vulnerable side. Strangely enough, their distant personality will rouse more feelings and desire from you. As they say, people have a tendency to want what they cannot have. Still, even if you do not end up romantically involved, you will have memorable encounters.

Dead person talking to you

Talking to a dead person, especially someone you do not know, means you will find yourself arguing with a close friend. Just like talking to a deceased person, it will feel pointless and frustrating. Even if you will involuntarily get dragged into this heated debate, your pride and intellect will not allow you to back down. The subject matter, perhaps politics or religion, will rouse your passionate side. There will be no winner, though your friendship will definitely not be the same after that.

Giving a present to a dead person

Having a dream where you see yourself giving a present to a dead person is an indication of potential losses related to your financial assets or material possessions.

Dead people on fire

Seeing dead people burning in your dream vision is often considered a reflection of two opposing aspects of your personality. On one hand, you are probably a very ambitious individual with the desire and drive to do great things in life. You may have been a high-achiever in school, or perhaps you excelled at certain sports or social activities. On the other hand, you also probably worry a lot about small, insignificant details regarding your day to day life, like what to eat for dinner or how best to finish a certain project. These concerns may be keeping you from reaching your true potential by stealing your precious time and energy. In order to accomplish your greatest goals, you need to let go of less important things that are holding you back.

Someone resembling a dead person

Seeing someone get ghastly pale and resembling a dead person is a sign of upcoming health issues or a potential illness. It can also mean you are about to have a meeting with friends experiencing a dire situation, or you may be visiting some older people who are in need of your assistance.

A dead woman coming to assault

I am a female. A man told me he dreamed that a dead woman came to my house and gave me some beating and I was screaming out to him "You don't see the woman beating me up?"

Dreaming of being visited by dead people, as envisioned in a dream by someone else, means that this person is preoccupied with worries in regards to you forgetting about their issues, helping them solve some problems, or simply reaching out to them when they need you. It could be trivial and unimportant to you, but this man seems to think you could be giving much more than you presently do as far as your mutual relationship is concerned.

Communicating with dead people

I been having this dream for the past 2 days of me dying and still being able to communicate with people that are living. Everyone knew I was dead but somehow I was still able to see them, touch them and talk to them although they weren't able to see me. The only people that were in my dream were my father who I don't talk to at all, my mom and my step father and some old childhood friends that we no longer talk to each other, but are still my neighbors. Along with them I was present in my high school graduation and I also saw a lot of strangers. I wasn't able to see my face clearly in my coffin.

To generalize, you had a dream where you experienced either being a ghost or communicating with them, which could be indicative of some emotional turmoil or unsettled emotions which have been raging inside you. This could be because of a petty issue or a minor circumstance only, but one which you might be thinking is way too important due to its mysterious and enigmatic nature. Perceiving yourself dead in this dream is, however, a reassuring sign of upcoming positive changes and your ability to live and enjoy a much happier life and coming to terms with what's bothering you at the moment.

Unknown dead person

Perceiving the body of an unknown dead person is often interpreted as a sign of troubles dealing with certain people in reality. In most cases, it is often related to interpersonal communication issues. This symbol can be broken down more clearly though. For example, if you focused on the body, it could mean you are misreading body language or that your are invading someone's personal space. On the other hand, if your eyes were drawn to the head, problems processing language or tone cues may lead you to inadvertently offend others or rub them the wrong way.

Rising of the dead

In a Biblical sense, seeing someone dead coming back to life suggests resurrection or transformations. This means that someone around you would experience a changeover in life, and it is likely that you would be this person's motivator. This intervention would bring prosperity not only to this person's life but to yours as well.

Discovering that parents are dead

I wake up to the fact that I have been asleep for 2-3 days and that this time that I awake from my sleep I am told that my father has passed and they take me to the car where they have the coffin with his body and then, once there, I am told that my mother has passed as well and then I am going home to find that I have moved. All my sisters are there and they tell me that mom's ashes are there in the house placed behind one of the walls, and I can't stop crying and asking why just to be told that it was my fault that their death was my fault.

Dreaming about learning that one or both of your parents have died, when they are alive in reality, predicts upcoming issues and troubles and the need on your part to watch for quickly changing circumstances or unexpected developments in your personal life and family matters. This dream is warning you about a looming danger or unexpected events which will throw you off course from regular activities or obligations you have to perform in your everyday life. The dream vision you had also contained strong signals that you may have recently done something or have not acted in a timely manner to trigger unfavorable consequences which may affect you and other family members, not necessarily your parents. The dream, therefore, advises being on the lookout in order to prevent worse things from happening.

Multiple dead bodies

The sight of several corpses or dead bodies is a bad omen that portends future struggles. You could be saddled with negativity which would snowball into a lot of unnecessary worrying about something that has not even happened yet. You could be struggling to find meaning or purpose in life, hence you feel detached from day-to-day situations. Perhaps you can benefit from talking to a professional if you find yourself feeling hopeless and unable to function like you normally would.

Holding a dead baby

Carrying a dying newborn baby suggests that you are about to experience disappointments and a significant amount of worries in life. There could be a specific person who would cause this feeling, or perhaps it is your action that would lead to this. Moreover, this is also a metaphor for unpleasant childhood memories that you are still clinging onto, which are giving you discouragement. This vision is probably your inner self telling you to end this misery by trying to purge painful memories.

Smell of a dead body

The smell of a dead body or rotting corpse is unmistakable, even in a dream. To perceive such a sense while in the realm of dream visions may be a sign that you are experiencing anxiety related to something about life and death. For instance, this vision may suggest that you are the type of person who takes big decisions very seriously, leading you to overthink even decisions that do not have long-term effects. Upon waking, it may be wise to consider what things are currently stressing you and really think if they are worth spending so much of your time and energy.

Strong grip of a dead person

Holding hands with a deceased person in a dream holds both a positive and negative connotation when all the details involved are taken into consideration. For one, this means that someone is feeling grateful toward you or that you are always willing to lend a hand whenever someone needs help. On the other hand, the vivid feeling of the cold hand is a metaphor for someone who is harboring ill feelings toward you that might result in future conflicts with this person.

Unknown dead body

An unidentified dead person denotes an aspect of yourself which you want to shake off. Perhaps you have an unknown or shadow side that you fear will sabotage your life plans if left unchecked or unresolved. Alternatively, multiple dead bodies of people you do not know could be an indication of alienation from a certain social group. You may not feel confident socializing with your workmates or classmates because you cannot relate to them.

Calling on dead parents

I was 13 when my mom passed away. I am now 47. I can still see and picture my mom in her casket. I would like to know why this is going on with me. I have been seeing and picturing this for some years now. I would say close to 7 years now and this is the 1st time I have spoken about it. I also sometimes would catch myself when I am in my pool and look to the heavens and say "Mom, daddy, can you hear me? Can you see me??". I don't want to tell my family and friends about this because they may think I have flipped...

Recurring dreams speak of unresolved issues. To see dead relatives in a dream usually alludes to grief and longing. However, in your case, since your mother's passing already occurred in the distant past, perhaps there are triggers in the waking world which bring up memories of the past. The image of her deceased self in the casket could represent her lingering influence on her decisions and personal beliefs. Perhaps you are latching on to the lessons you have learned while she was alive. Could you be following in her footsteps? Or are you committing the same mistakes she has made in the past? These are some of the questions you may have to answer for yourself to understand this recurring aspect of your dreams.

Dead body in water

A corpse floating in water is an ill omen to perceive in a dream. It suggests random events coming about that leave you feeling like you are on an emotional rollercoaster. The presence of other symbols in the dream may further elaborate on the events themselves or the people involved.

Seeing a dead person happy

To dream that a deceased person is smiling and alive means you have started the process of accepting this person's passing. You may have already grieved sufficiently, and are now able to move past your grief in order to find peace of mind. This dream vision is meant to give you comfort and to celebrate the life that this person has lived. Although there may have been unfinished business, there were surely much to treasure about your time together.

Dead person angry

Dead loved ones who appear to be feeling upset or angry is not the terrible symbol it appears to be. Rather, this sign has a different interpretation according to dream workers, one more closely aligned with differences and imbalances in wake life. Your behavior or actions may be at war with your true values. Fighting against what you truly believe in would leave you feeling exhausted and like a hypocrite. Until you embrace the truth, you would likely experience regret and guilt as well.

Dead mother angry

Seeing your dearly departed mother mad or in a state of anger may be upsetting, but this symbol is meant to bring you good fortune by bringing attention to the real issues in your life. Instead of arguing or going back and forth about the reason or cause of something, now is the time to fix it and stop playing the blame game. You would feel much better once everything is resolved, more so than you would just by arguing to prove a point.

Digging up a dead body

Finding a corpse, such as when a grave is exhumed, is considered a highly ominous symbol in the Christian tradition. This image refers to problems with both religious and worldly matters, often following in the footsteps of some tragedy or hardship. Whatever the situation may be, you are likely to feel great anxiety and distress, with little hope for peace in the near future.

Smelling dead body

According to Islamic dream interpreters, the scent of the deceased is meant to be a hint to help you get your life back on track. Some aspect of your life is likely atrophying, like your motivation, work ethic or physical health. Whatever area of your life is lacking, you need to do something quickly to restore it or you may lose it forever.
