Dream meaning: Ghost

GhostPrimordial form of the spirit(soul); embodiment of the image creating activity of the unconscious. Depending on its massage or wisdom, it may represent the archetypal Wise Old Man or Woman. The spirit may also appear as a gnome, or boy, or talking animal. Is there something in your life that has about it a sense of being unreal?
The ghost may be an expression of outdated modes of behavior or memories or regrets that are still haunting you. The dream may be expressing a feeling or fear that you do not have a ghost of a chance in some situation or relationship. Freud thought that dream ghosts represented infantile memories of a mother figure who looked in on her sleeping child.
See boy, gnome, Wise Old Man.

    It started in an old house where I was with people that I didn’t know in real life. But in the dream world they were my group mates and we were shooting a film. Then we discovered that the house we chose as a setting was haunted. When we found pictures of a little girl and little boy that were transparent in the photos. After we finished and went to sleep, I asked one of the guys to sleep with me on the bed. Then the little ghost boy kept on lifting the blanket. And I was the only one who could see him. So I prayed and the little ghost boy disappeared. The following day the little ghost boy chased me around the house. I was so scared but I found myself being shaken up by my group mate saying I was dreaming. When we were about to leave the house I didn’t want to knowing that the ghost will follow me. So I stayed in the house and then I woke up

    In my dream i was being chased by several guys. Then i tried to found shelter but one of them were involved with the chased guys.I was told not to tell anybody bout the murder but i finally told the truth. So i managed to escape from the guys. A game was introduced and if supposedly i fail it means i should be killed but i refused and finally i found myself in love with the murderer. I badly wanted to feel him and have sex too.

    In my dream me and my mom visit our old house. Then it was infested by ghosts and lots of moving objects happening.
    We called my aunt and cousin to help out and we called a psychic to remove the ghost. When we entered our house with my cousin and the psychic we all saw lots of ghost children including a woman with a bloody belly looking for her lost child, and another woman wearing a red dress. We tried to move out the ghost….and a random dream happened…it scared me and I woke up with a headache. I’m not sure how to interpret it.

    In my dream my partner of 6 months and I split up, our country was invaded and a war started. I was captured and was made to be a pet of a family of what seemed like aliens? Then I was killed and became a ghost, living in a ghost realm. What does it mean if you become a ghost?

    In my dream large items in my apartment were lifted up by themselves continuously while I sat by my door screaming. I was trying to leave but couldn’t move cuz of my fear.

    I dream of a small baby child ghost in my house (I sensed it to be my house in the dream but it was no where like my house.) We got to know of the ghost after watching it in pictures we were taking with our camera. He was playing and going in different rooms. And you could sense something if u tried going through it.
