Uncover Hidden Dream Meanings

To have a dream where you are in a graveyard among tombstones may seem negative, but it demonstrates that you are ready to face mortality with ease. Graveyards appear quite frequently in dreams, disturbing sleep and worrying the dreamer.

According to the Western tradition, however, this dream is a good omen of a better life. Dreaming of a cemetery in a graveyard means your future will be good and many of your wishes will come true.

In your dream you may have

  • Been in a graveyard.
  • Been going to the graveyard.
  • Brought flowers to a graveyard.
  • Seen a countryside graveyard.
  • Visited a particular grave.
  • Passed by a graveyard.
  • Visited a graveyard.

Positive changes are afoot if

  • You visited a loved one in the graveyard.
  • A friend or loved one accompanied you to the cemetery.
  • You had a pleasant experience at the graveyard.
  • The graveyard was peaceful and serene.

Detailed dream interpretation

We have no clear images of the next world in this life, but we try to figure it out the best we can. While wandering around the graveyard you may encounter people that have passed away, so you clearly need to explore the deepest thoughts and feelings inside. Why are you not happy? Sometimes it is hard to quantify the reasons of unhappiness.

You could be suffering from depression and although things are really good, you are unable to understand why sometimes you feel down. This is the key to this dream, in that you are beginning to feel depressed and the dream shows someone from the other side is trying to communicate with you to cheer you up. If you actually meet a loved one who has died in your dream, this shows you are seeking some reassurance that something awaits you on the other side. Do not over burn yourself and feel guilty about it. There is a possibility that these types of meetings take place with the deceased in this current realm, which is known as the astral plane. This is where we connect with spirits.

The meaning of a graveyard dream has several interpretations. The details really matter; such as people in the dream and the feeling that you experienced during the dream or even after you have woke up. In general a graveyard symbolizes a change that can occur within a major event in your life. It is possible to experience a loss, an obstacle or a less pleasant event; but after this you can view things in a more positive light. If you manage to get out of the graveyard in your dream, it is possible to get over obstacles and even take a step forward in terms of your life.

To dream that you are arranging a grave in the cemetery means that you have probably not managed to get over a bad event, such as a loss. In life we must accept both the good and the bad. It is important to overcome the past and look to the future.

A graveyard in your dream is a sign of progress in life, such as luck, searching for a secret or a prosperous future. To dream that you are in a graveyard suggests that you ended a habit or behavior. Graveyards suggest changes or disappearances. If the soil of the graves is well kept or if you put flowers on it; you will have happiness in your family and circle of friends. If the land is not taken care of, this is a sign that you suffer from loneliness and pessimism. The dream may also suggest sadness, anger and fear of death.

Going with somebody to visit a graveyard represents a real friendship. Bringing flowers to a grave tells that you are a sensitive and undecided character. Seeing a countryside graveyard in your dream could mean the return of a prodigal son. Passing by a graveyard represents progress in your activities. Many graveyards in your dream are a sign of moral pain. Visiting a graveyard rarely means trouble and sadness or foretells death.
