Dream symbol Obituary


decay, mourning, transitoriness, remorse, new beginning

Death notices in the newspaper provide information about the death of a person and announce the place and time of the funeral. Some people thus also express their grief through a few forceful words.

The deceased is not always an acquaintance or a friend of whom we learn about the ad. But if it is a close member of the family or circle of relatives, the matter looks quite different. No matter whether in the awake state or in the dream action. What is the dream interpretation of the symbol "obituaries"?

General dream interpretation

If one discovers oneself reading obituaries at the dream level, this generally prophesies a negative tendency regarding future events. This means that no pleasant messages will soon flutter into the house. A somewhat difficult phase of life could be approaching in the dreamer's life. There may be a faint light on the horizon after periods of trouble. First, some hurdles have to be overcome before the sun becomes visible without clouds.

If the dreamer sees an advertisement in the newspaper about the death of a friend or acquaintance, one should not become immediately panic, because in this regard this expresses, according to the general dream interpretation, not the forthcoming death of a person. Rather, this dream image points to a positive change in the life of the person concerned. Most likely, a change will occur, as the dreamer will be blessed with financial gain, for example, and will also be able to climb a business ladder and become free and independent.

Possibly a joyful event is announced, it could be a wedding. Or you are asked by this dream symbol to bring your own partnership relationship back into shape a little more. To show more sympathy and attention to the other person. Maybe you have drifted apart a bit lately.

Coming across one's own name in an obituary while sleeping symbolizes missed opportunities in life.The dreamer in question comes to the realization that the best time for the opportunities offered has now passed. The train seems to have already sailed. With this awareness, a sense of regret inevitably blows in.

Psychological dream interpretation

According to the psychological approach, the death notice in the dream plot symbolizes a new beginning. The dreamer can look forward with relief, because an important and stressful period of life has come to an end.

A progress in one's own development announces itself and one gets involved in a new learning phase. The dreamer deals with his individual needs and also pays much attention to the subject of transience. He becomes especially aware of this when he discovers his own name in the death announcement in the dream.

According to psychoanalysis, if the dream image is related to an acquaintance or friend who is declared dead in the newspaper, this provides information about the nature of the relationship with the deceased person. As a dream detail, the text in the obituary also plays a role that can provide information about whether the dreamer wants to break away from a relationship of dependence in real life or exclude this person from his life altogether.

Spiritual dream interpretation

According to spiritual dream interpretation, an obituary is considered a symbol of buried spiritual wisdom . The dreamer is asked to surrender completely to this revelation.
