A Guide to Dreams and Sleep Experiences

Memories, feelings, guilt, which haunt us, parts of the wider awareness of the unconscious which attempt to communicate; the husks or influences from past traumas or events, which have been emptied of hurt and real influence, but still affect us; fantasies, hopes, longings we have given time to, and so filled with our life and sexual energy, and which now influence us. Ghost of living person: a sense of their thoughts or presence influencing one; haunted by desire for them, or a resentment or feeling about them.

A ghost which feels solid: the dreamer is ‘touching’ aspects of their own mind or awareness existing beyond preconceived ideas and beliefs.

Example: ‘So frequently do I dream of the house and the town I lived in as a child, I wonder if I do indeed haunt the house by dreaming of it. I must tell you I believe that a trau­matic incident, which happened when I was 20, is involved. I was playing the piano downstairs when I heard a gun fired. On searching I found my father lying dead upstairs in an attic. He had shot his brains out. I took the scene in, never to be forgotten, in one horrified moment’ (Barbara T). Some people believe that, because of such incidents as described, in their dreams the living haunt a place. Seeing a ghost while awake can still be considered as connected with the dream process. See third example under husband. See also hallucination. ... A Guide to Dreams and Sleep Experiences

Here, it usually means the so-called “spirit of life,” which makes up a distinctly human life. In addition, it might possibly point to unused or wrongly applied intellectual activities or actions. You are chasing a phantom. This is a warning against illusions and wrong insights. Creatures from the world of fairy tales are always somewhat frightening. They may be helpful or have bad intentions. Ghosts are often an expression of guilt feelings and pangs of conscience.

If these images appear continually and are frightening, seek professional advice.

The task connected with these dream images is often to find a better understanding and a more creative use of your intellectual powers.

Vision: Sometimes ghost dreams are about real encounters, but on an astral plane. This is because a part of us, during sleep, is freed from physical restraints and therefore capable of receiving information from other worlds.

At its very basic level, we all have fears and feelings about death, and the appearance of Spirit helps us to come to terms with these. It will depend on the dreamer’s own personal belief system as to whether he or she feels they are actual spirits or not.

When spirits appear in dreams, their function may be to help us through various states of transition. While we cope with everyday fears, there are many unconscious memories and feelings which can surface unexpectedly. When we are conscious of a kindly or helpful spirit we arc aware that we can move on. When we sec the spirits of dead people we usually need reassurance.

During spiritual development, our perceptions widen from the ordinary everyday to other aspects and dimensions of knowledge that have become available to us. Whether these arc aspects of our own personality or of the spirit realm is immaterial, since ultimately their function is to help the dreamer progress.

Islamic Dream Interpretation

(Admonition; Fellowship; Gathering; Meeting; Religious meeting) If one who does not qualify to be a spiritual leader or a scholar sees himself holding a religious gathering and admonishing people to do good and to forbid evil in a dream, it means distress and an illness which he is praying hard for it to be lifted by God’s leave. However, ifhe does speak wisdom during such a spiritual gathering in his dream, it means praying hard to have one’s distress and illness lifted by God’s leave. Consequently, and God willing, he will recover from his illness and be able to dispel his adversities. His condition will change from tightness to abundance. He will repay his debts and overcome his oppressors.

If one sees a spiritual gathering where God’s Name is glorified, the holy Qur’an is read and wisdom is spoken in his dream, it means that such a place will be established as a spiritual center or as a mosque. Such a place will also become a center where spiritual leaders and governors will gather and speak.

If love songs of light nature are played during such a gathering in a dream, it means that falsehood will overtake such a place. Ifone sees himselfsitting in the center stage, in the middle oflearned people and religious scholars in a dream, it means that he will receive a greater knowledge and honor in his life.

A gathering that involves a court case, or a marriage in a dream represents an unknown adversity that will safely pass. Admonishing people in a public gathering in a dream means that one’s command will be obeyed. Sitting in the center stage in a spiritual gathering in a dream represents one’s station or rank, or it could represent one’s wife, child, property, or personal secretary. Anything that happens to such a gathering in the dream may reflect on any of them. (Also see Fellowship; Gathering; Mosque)... Islamic Dream Interpretation
