I died in my dream and came back as ghost

Updated on December 13, 2013


It is normal for people to see dreams of spirits and ghosts. But today I saw a dream in which I was the spirit. I have seen that kind of dream before. But today’s dream was a bit more complicated.As soon as I saw this dream,I thought I might make a hub on it.I hope you would enjoy reading this hub and leave your comments on it.I've chosen the above title because I felt it for real.As you keep reading this hub you will understand why I've chosen this particular title.Please forgive me, if it is not organized.I wrote it as soon as I woke up ,so that I would not forget it.

First scene:He killed me

I was with a group of people and we worked together. I guess the group had two women and many men. We were some kind of detectives, or gangsters or something like that which is related to action. I do admit that I was watching an action movie before I saw that dream. Okay! Let me continue with the dream .In the next scene we were in our van when one of them got extremely crazy. He started to shoot everyone in the van. I got pretty sure that he would kill me too. And then when I turned my back he killed me too. I was dead then.

Second scene :Me in the graveyard already dead

I don’t know how he carried our bodies but now I was in a place lying with my other dead friends.It wasn't actually a graveyard but an isolated place where no one could find us. We were all spirits now. We could see the pale sky above us as we were lying below the sky. My other female friend who was already dead told me “You’re not a Christian. Do you think it would be okay”? I think she was talking about what happens after death to someone if he /she doesn’t believe God. I didn’t say her anything. I thought to myself that I believed God and I can be saved by God . It doesn't have to be which religion but believing in God itself is enough.It doesn't matter which religion I follow as I respect all religions equally.

Last scene:I am the spirit trapped

In the next scene I was in a house with my father’s spirit. I don’t know when he joined me. It was like we died together.I really started to like staying in that place. But I kept saying my father and my brother/sister(I'm not sure if it was my brother or sister) who were also spirits that it was wrong to stay in somebody else’s place. In that place there was a lady (Saru) and her daughter (Jirel). Her name was same as mine. So I entered her body as I needed help from someone. Jirel went to her neighbour (Lexy).Sometimes Jirel herself spoke and sometimes I spoke through her as a spirit residing her with the lady. Jirel said to Lexy that there were some spirits in her house and she is scared as hell. She also told that a spirit is residing in her body as well. Lexy told her that it is normal to have spirits in the place where she stayed. Jirel asked for help from Lexy if she could do anything. Then I said (remember I am a spirit) “I am speaking through her. I don’t want to trouble this girl and her family (her mother) but I really like her place. But I know that I am wrong. Please help my spirit find peace so that I can leave her and her family”. And then I saw my younger sister/brother’s spirit and told him/her that now we should not stay at that house as we are wrong.

Comparing with the real facts

This was all I could remember from my dream. Now let me tell you the real things .The surprising fact of the story is I as a spirit was residing in my own house. The house where I liked to stay is actually my own house. Talking about Lexy , she is actually my ex-boyfreind’s mother. I was inside the body of a girl named Jirel.But in reality Jirel is me myself. The lady in that house is actually my mother. Talking about my dead father in my dream, yes, I lost my father when I was very young. And my younger dead brother/sister in my dream, could it be my sister who was dead before she was born? Actually my mom lost a baby in her womb when she gave birth to a girl child and my father passed away when I was 10 years old. My father did not die a normal death but he was murdered.Its been more than 10 years already.So what was I doing as a spirit in my own dream, residing in my own house but acting like an alien? All those things I saw as a dream were nothing new to me. Just when I woke up, I realized that those places and the people were the ones with who I’m most familiar in my actual life.

Dream interpretation?Confused!!

I have been living in the Philippines for my studies and it’s been few years that I left my place. I think I saw that dream because I’ve been worrying about my mother a lot. I think my dead father and my sister are trying to say not to worry about mother because they are taking care of her. But from my dream I really felt the pain of spirits. I felt so helpless as a spirit. I knew that I am not supposed to stay in somebody else’s house but I found it better than my graveyard. I tried searching for someone who could set my spirit free, as I was trapped. I even did the wrong thing of inhabiting in somebody else’s body. Not just me but my whole family haunted that particular house because we liked it. Does it mean that my father’s and my sister’s spirit are still trapped and they haven’t found the way? Does it mean I need to do something for them to find peace? And why did I become the victim as a spirit? Why did I inhabit in my own body not somebody else’s as a spirit?

Your views

As usual, this dream has left me with lots of questions and confusions. I think I could get some part of my dream but not all. I know that all dreams do not have to be connected with something real in life. But if you’ve read the questions I’ve posted, you would see that I sometimes have premonitions. So this dream once again has made me think a lot of things. Please tell me what you think about it. I know it’s a bit complicated. But I myself feel very confused. Thank you for reading it.

      reading your story made me remember my dream as well. I didn't see myself die but I know that I was killed. and I also knew that I was a spirit as well. this dream happened years ago, but I still remember it, as I felt a connection to the boy in my dream although I had no idea who he was at all. I've forgotten how he looked like but the feeling I felt in the dream, hmm I can't really put it into words but as a result, I still remember the dream well. although I've not tried connecting it to the real world.

      thanks for your hub, it made me nostalgic about many of my dreams that I remember.

      Jirel, a couple of questions... who is Christina in your dream? Is it someone you actually know in this lifetime? Is she the girl who was killed along with you in the first part of the dream?

      This dream is AMAZING and a true revelation. I'm glad I got to read it because my sister and I have these crazy dreams and we often think no one else have them. I'm glad you do!

      In my opinion, I think that (although maybe not completely accurate) you might have had a flashback to your most recent past life, the way you died, and how you ended up reincarnating in your family. The people in spirit (your father and siblings) and the people in the woman in the house (your mother) is why you came back as Jirel, inhabiting your own body. It's got some symbology to it, but I think it's what it means. Remember we get to chose who are parents will be in our next life, and this dream symbolizes that you felt at home in the house with the people you loved and you've most likely have shared several lives with.

      Don't think of it as being past and present, because chances are you didn't live in your house and you weren't a spirit trapped in your mother's house just because you felt comfortable. It's the past together with the present - your spirit, being surrounded by the most important people in your life (whether in spirit or encarnated) and not wanting to leave them because you felt good being there with them. And you, telling your siblings and father that it was wrong to stay and watch the others living in the house, to me, it represents that you realize there is a higher spiritual plane awaiting for you... which seems to be what's happening to you right now.

      It's a truly beautiful dream! Very meaningful. Thanks for sharing!

      Once I saw myself die in my dreams, and one day I killed myself in my dream. I was taught meditation method where you constantly see yourself die. When I decapitated myself in my dream, it was inside the temple of the Goddess. The Goddess I worshiped was a symbol of destruction. These two dreams were interpreted by the psychic as my spiritual achievements. But according to Freud, I dreamed death because I constantly meditated upon death in my conscious level.

      It was a delight to read about your dreams.

      This is a very deep piece Jirel. Me and a coworker was discussing something like this the other day! It was an interesting conversation to have while at work but I did realize someone else could relate to what I was saying.

      I know your fingers were typing so fast after an experience like this! Continue to share these please!

      I had a peculiar dream last night, too, the details of which have pretty much faded. I do see that parts of my life experiences influenced it -- especially my husband's series of laceration wounds this past three months. I think our subconscious stays really busy and tries to work all this stuff out in our dreams. I'm not sure even a trained specialist would come up with an accurate interpretation, since we know ourselves better than anyone else. I guess the important thing is that we both woke up.
