Cemetery Dream Meaning

If you have a dream about a cemetery, it may feel like a scary sign in a nightmare. Of course, a dream about a cemetery does not mean that we are dying or that the people around us may die. However, it does show a clear fear of the unknown. Cemeteries in dreams may have to do with spiritual awakenings. They may also have to do with a fear of or curiosity about death and dying.

Not long ago had this crazy experience of walking through a cemetery and the song "Thriller" by Micheal Jackson suddenly started playing, I won’t deny this dream freaked me out. They always have winding pathways as well! Such dreams can leave a lasting impression which is why you are probably here on my website.

Now, we rarely give ourselves a moment to just stop and look around -- at where we've been, where we're going, and all the incredible stories that lie in between. First off, it’s okay to feel a little freaky after having a dream like this. I mean, cemeteries aren’t exactly the place we want to be right? Spiritually, in my dream books, they outline that cemeteries are places of rest, often suggesting finality or conclusion.

I also feel these sorts of dreams can also signify something much deeper and personal: reflection, transformation, and sometimes even healing.

What is the spiritual meaning of dreaming of a cemetery?

Dreams about cemeteries can reflect our darkest fears. What happens in the afterlife according to your spirituality is often known as “the unknown,” mostly because views on the subject differ so vastly. If you are having doubts or fears about your future, whether it is your chosen job field or death, you may be having dreams about cemeteries.

If you are simply passing by a cemetery in your dream, you are feeling as if your life is passing you by too quickly. Time flies by so slowly that you do not feel like you will have enough time to do all of the things you want to do before you die. You cannot control time, but you can control the things you do in life to make it worthwhile.

If you dream about being in a cemetery, then you are worried about the unknown shortly. You are not sure whether you have made the right plans for your life, and this is reflected by your dreams of the afterlife. The future involves everything leading up to death: work, school, home, family, relationships, and friendship. You are wondering when everything will finally start coming together and when things will start going your way.

If you dreamed about a mysterious person’s gravestone, you are worried about what other people will think about you when you die. Will you have accomplished all you set out to do? Will other people see you the way you see yourself? You constantly wonder about everyone’s opinion. Because of this, you are trying too hard to please others. You ought to try focusing on making your life fun and happy, and then everything else will fall into place.

If you dreamed about the grave of someone you know, you are worried you have not gotten to know this person well enough. Whether this person is a friend or an enemy, you may be regretting some things in your relationship and wishing you could get to know this person much better before they die.

If you were wandering through a cemetery, you feel lost in the spiritual world. You are not entirely sure what to believe anymore and this is affecting your subconscious. Do some research and make some conscious decisions about your spiritual path.

If you were buried in a cemetery in your dream, you are expressing some curiosity about death and dying. You are not entirely sure what will happen to you in the afterlife, and, even if you do not want to admit it, you are having some doubts about your spirituality.
