Actually dreaming of a ghost links us to old habit patterns, or buried hopes and longings. There is something insubstantial in these, possibly because we have not put enough energy into them.
Tif a ghost – i.E. A shadowy shape – appears in a dream we may be alerted to our past states of being and ways of behaviour. We need to identify these and acknowledge that we have moved on.
(See Ghost; Mirage)
We may be resurrecting old memories or feelings in order to understand our own actions. By putting ourselves in touch with what is dead and gone we can take appropriate action in the here and now. If we dream of being haunted by a ghost we have probably not handled an emotional trauma well.
In a dream, whistling represents pagan customs. Ifone hears a whistle or produces one in a dream, it may indicate an illness, or it could represent a vacant house or a ghost town.
(Death; Give up the ghost; To die) In a dream, the return of one’s soul back to its Lord means remitting a trust to its rightful owner, the recovery of a sick person from his illness, the release of a prisoner from jail, or perhaps it could represent the reunion of beloveds.
To dream that a phantom pursues you, foretells strange and disquieting experiences. To see a phantom fleeing from you, foretells that trouble will assume smaller proportions. See Ghost.
(Ghost) A phantom in a dream represents money one will earn from a friendly person. If a pregnant woman sees a phantom in her dream, it means that she will beget a son. (Also see Mirage)
If you dreamed about having a life after death (being a ghost/spirit), this suggests that you are feeling disconnected in some way from life and society. This dream may be a calling for you to move on and abandon your outdated modes of thinking and behavior, and make a positive change in your attitude.
