2. You’re Seeking Closure – Dreaming of a Deceased Loved One Could Also Be a Reflection of Your Personal Guilt, Remorse, or Sorrow Dreaming of a Deceased Loved One Could Also Be a Reflection of Your Personal Guilt, Remorse, If your loved one passed away suddenly, having dreams about them might be a sign that their spirit is trying to find a way to put an end to the unfinished business of their life.
It’s also possible that you desire to part ways with them and say your goodbyes. It’s possible that you’re having a hard time accepting the fact that you’ll be spending the rest of your lives apart. Because they will never again be a part of your life, you are compelled to acknowledge the connection you shared with them.
When you’re in the REM period of your sleep and you have a dream about a deceased relative, it’s quite probable that you’re missing them and that you want to tell them everything you’ve been meaning to say to them for as long as you can remember. In the case that you find yourself acting out the sequence of events that led to their passing in your dream, it’s probable that you’ve been ruminating on the ways in which you may have been able to save them had you acted differently.
Why do I dream about my dead loved ones?
2. You are projecting your feelings onto the deceased loved one. While the vast majority of dreams about a deceased loved one have a happy or soothing ending, there are occasions when the deceased loved one may be angry, sad, or disappointed with you in the dream.
What does it mean when you dream of someone who has died?
Dreams in which you or someone else is about to pass away might be unpleasant, but you shouldn’t take them seriously. A person’s passing away in a dream might represent the conclusion of one phase of life and the start of another. Dreams may stir up a wide range of feelings, and those feelings can be used to better understand the relevance of a dream to real-life occurrences.
What does it mean when you dream about your dead husband?
1. You will amass a significant wealth if you sometimes think about your late husband in your dreams. If so, you’re not alone. There are a lot of people who dream about their late spouses and take solace in the idea that they are still with them when they do so.
- The explanation for this is straightforward: dreams are how our minds work through difficult feelings.
- When we experience dreams about loved ones who have passed away, it is a sign that our emotions have not evolved; it indicates that we are still carrying around a great deal of sadness over their departure.
And the nightmares you’ve been having about your late spouse are a portent that you will soon find happiness and financial success. The presence of your late husband is a wonderful indicator of positive changes and professional advancement. Even though he is no longer able to provide for you, he wants to ensure that you will continue to live a fulfilling life that is secure financially even after he has passed away.
Do we know each other in heaven?
7. The reunion of believing family members and friends – When Paul writes to believers who are grieving the loss of a loved one, he offers them this consolation: “We who are still alive will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air” (1 Thessalonians 4:17, emphasis added).
- They” refers to our beloved departed believers who have passed on and are now in the Lord’s presence.
- A wife who grieves the loss of her believing husband has the solace of knowing that when the Lord arrives, she will meet her spouse again.
- Sons and daughters who are grieving the death of a believing parent might find solace in the thought of this beautiful reunion when we shall be reunited with those who have gone before us into the presence of the Lord.
This happy reunion will take place when we will all be in heaven together. For me, that is more than enough to put an end to the debate, and I really hope that it does the same for you. Christians who know and love one another on earth will continue to know and love one another once they arrive in paradise.

What does the Bible say about cremation?
According to 2 Kings 23:16-20, Josiah removed the skeletons from the tomb, burnt them on the altar, and therefore “defiled” the sanctuary. However, the Bible nowhere in the Old Testament commands that the dead cannot be burnt, and there are no judgements associated to those who have been cremated. Those who have been cremated are not held accountable in any way.
What does the Bible say about tears in heaven?
1 Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth; the old heaven and the old earth had vanished, and there was no sea any longer. This is because the old heaven and the old earth had been destroyed.2 And I, John, saw the holy city, a new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, ready as a bride adorned for her husband.
This vision was given to me as a vision from the book of Revelation.3 And I heard a great voice coming from heaven saying, “Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will a dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.” This voice said, “Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men,” and “he will a dwell with them,” and “they shall be his people.” 4 And God will wipe every tear from their eyes, and there will be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying, nor pain; for the old things have gone away.5 The one who was seated on the throne then spoke and said, “Behold, I create all things new.” And he instructed me to write, saying, “because these words are truthful and faithful.” 6 And he replied to me, “It has been accomplished.” I am the first and the last, the beginning and the end, the Alpha and the Omega.
I would gladly give to someone who is parched from the spring of the water of life’s fountain whatever I have.7 Whoever a prevails will b inherit c everything; and I will be his God, and he will be my son. I will be his father, and he will be my son.8 However, those who are terrified, unbelievers, abominable, murderers, whoremongers, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars will have a place in the lake that burns with fire and brimstone; this is the second death.
The fearful and the unbelieving will be cast into the lake together with the abominable.9 And there came to me one of the seven angels who had the seven vials full of the seven last plagues, and he chatted with me, saying, Come hither, and I will show thee the bride, the wife of the Lamb. I did as he said, and I saw her, and she was beautiful.10 And he carried me away in the spirit to a great and high mountain, and he showed me that great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending from heaven from God, 11 Having the glory of God: and her light was like unto a stone most precious, even like a jasper stone, clear as crystal; 12 And having a wall great and high, and having twelve gates, and at the gates twelve angels, and names written thereon, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the children of 13 On the three gates to the east, on the three gates to the north, on the three gates to the south, and on the three gates to the west.14 And the city wall had twelve foundations, and on those foundations were written the names of the twelve apostles who were sent out by the Lamb.15 Furthermore, the one who was conversing with me had a golden reed with which to measure the city, as well as its gates and its wall.16 And the city is laid out in a square, and its length is as much as its breadth; and he measured the city with the reed, and it came out to be twelve thousand furlongs.
It has the same length, the same width, and the same height all the way through.17 And he measured the wall of it to be one hundred forty and four cubits, according to the measure of a man, that is, of the angel.18 The construction of the city’s wall was done out of jasper, while the city itself was made of pure gold, as transparent as glass.19 And the foundations of the city wall were embellished with a variety of precious stones in every conceivable shape and size.
The first foundation was made of jasper, the second was made of sapphire, the third was made of chalcedony, and the fourth was made of emerald.20 The fifth was a sardonyx; the sixth was a sardius; the seventh was a chrysolite; the eighth was a beryl; the ninth was a topaz; the tenth was a chrysoprasus; the eleventh was a jacinth; and the twelfth was an amethyst.21 And the twelve gates were twelve pearls; every several gate was of one pearl; and the roadway of the city was pure gold, as clear as glass; each individual gate was composed of a single pearl.22 And I did not see a temple there; rather, the Lord God All-Powerful and the Lamb themselves are the temple of it.23 And the city had no need of the sun, nor of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did illuminate it, and the Lamb is the light of the city.
an And the city had no need of the sun, nor of the moon, to shine in it.24 The rulers of the earth will bring their glory and honor into it, and the nations of those who are rescued will walk in the light of it.25 And the gates of it must not at any time be closed during the day, for there shall be no night inside its walls.26 And they shall bring the glory and honour of the nations into it.27 And there shall in no manner come into it any thing that a defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb’s b book of life,
What does it mean to dream of your deceased husband?
They Visit You in Your Dreams Dreams are symbolic representations of the events that are taking place in your waking life. It is possible for you to have a dream that is comforting and serene when you dream about your departed spouse, or it may be a dream that is perplexing and conflicting.
In any case, it might be a sign that a loved one is trying to communicate with you by assisting you in deciphering the significance of the personal symbols that appear in your dreams. One of my dreams saw me working on a loading dock, for instance. When I went to fetch a shipment, I stepped onto a damp and muddy loading area, and my boots immediately became mired in the muck.
No matter how hard I tried, I was unable to move, and this was very frustrating to me. After a bit, a door opened, and my husband immediately yanked me out of the boots and back into the building where it was dry (it never occurred to me I could step out of the boots to release myself).
- Even though we didn’t talk to one another, it was clear that you wanted to convey something to me.
- He is still close by to assist me whenever I get into a bind.
- Now, whenever I’m struggling with something, the first thing I do is seek for his assistance so that I can get unstuck.
- If you experience nightmares about your departed spouse, it is important to be open to receiving messages from them in any form they may come.
There is no correlation between having a “bad” dream and receiving a “bad” message. It’s merely the way that your subconscious is processing the events of your life. If you keep trying to piece together what your dream symbols mean for you, you could find that they finally make sense.
