When someone you love is crying in your dream:
This is not a good sign. Crying in the dream can be a sign of danger. Whenever someone you love is crying in your dream, it is a message of caution and danger.
This means that the person in your dream is in danger. This can be a message to spur you to pray. As a spiritually active individual, I don’t take this dream for granted.
Seeing someone you love in tears is a sign that something bad is about to happen to that person.
Therefore, try to check up on the person. If the person is unreachable, it is best to pray for such an individual. This is a bad omen that someone you love is about to get into trouble.

These 4 spiritual messages are the general ones. This means that you can use these messages to determine how to interpret your dream about someone you hate.
What if you see someone you hate kneeling? Or if you dream of someone you hate running after you? Do these events have spiritual messages as well? Let us look into these.
When someone you hate is kneeling:
This is a funny way of dreaming about someone you hate. People always expect to dream of such a person in a terrible situation.
However, the universe can bring this type of dream your way.
Whenever you dream of someone you hate kneeling, this means that the person is seeking reconciliation. This means that the person has acknowledged his wrongdoing, and is ready to make amends.

This can also be an affirmation from the universe that your premonition about this individual is true.

Therefore, you need to avoid such a person.
Furthermore, you should consciously take steps to protect yourself from such an attack. Through prayer, and protection rituals, you will keep yourself safe from the evil plans of such a person.

However, it gives you a heads-up and allows you to prepare yourself effectively for what lies ahead.
This dream tells you that the person you hate is planning evil against you. Therefore, you have to be cautious, and spiritually sensitive to the things that will begin to happen around you.
Someone you hate holding a dove in his hand:
This is a biblical message. Seeing a dove in the spirit world is a sign of forgiveness and letting go of hurts.
Whenever you are finding it hard to let go of offenses, the universe will bring this dream to your consciousness.
This dream will come as a sign to strengthen your resolve to let go of the offenses in your heart against this individual. By obeying this spiritual instruction, you will find peace and stability.
Conclusively, you should understand that these dreams might not only refer to the person involved. It can be a message concerning relationships. Therefore, apply it to everybody around you.
A family member in your dream
Seeing your family member in your dream is a common occurrence. Therefore, it should not be strange to you that this type of dream is occurring.
However, the meanings might be disrupted by your familiarity with this type of dream. This is why it is best to detach yourself from every form of familiarity with spiritual signs and experiences.
If you are going to enjoy the message from seeing your family member in your dream, you must consistently see it as a spiritual sign from the universe.
Additionally, the universe can give you this dream for the following reasons:
- To warn you of something.
- To rightly position your expectations.
- To inspire a love for the individual.
- You can have this dream to serve as a spiritual messenger to your family members.
Now, if you dream about a family member in your dream, the following meanings can be gotten, and these are based on the activities involved.
When your family member is laughing:
This is a good omen.
Whenever you dream of your family member laughing, it means that something good is going to happen to your family member.
Now, you will get clearer messages based on the following:

This means that something good is going to happen to your family member at their place of work.
This might be a promotion, a salary increase, or a new job with better incentives. This dream has a lot to do with career opportunities.
When your family member holds gold in his/her hand while laughing:

Therefore, keep an open mind.
Ensure to pray against evil occurrences. This is how to prevent the plan of evil people from coming to fruition.
Whenever you dream of your family member entering a door:
This means a new season of opportunities. In the spiritual world, doors are a sign of opportunities.
Seeing a door is an indication of numerous opportunities.
When you see your family member entering a door, this means that your family member will experience an unusual opportunity, which will lead to a divine promotion in career, finances, or relationships.
These are the messages from seeing a family member in your dream, and you should pay attention to all of them.
A dead person in your dream
Dreaming of a dead person is a sign from the universe. Whenever you have this experience, you should pay attention to it. Let us look at the different spiritual messages of seeing a dead person in your dream.
When you see a dead person sitting on a chair:
This does not have anything to do with the dead person. Even if the person is not familiar, it has nothing to do with the person.
Whenever you see a dead person sitting on a chair, this is a sign of your past. Dead people refer to our past lives. Dreaming about them can be a sign that your past is trying to resurface in your life. This is important for you to realize.
Therefore, before you run around seeking spiritual help, you should pay attention to this message.
Seeing a dead person sitting on a chair means that your past is trying to come back into your presence.
Now, the things in your past determine if the message is good or bad.
If your past is full of mistakes, this might be a bad sign. However, if your past is full of good things, it means that this is a good sign. Seeing a dead person on a chair is a sign of repeated cycles.
When you dream of a dead person that looks older than before:
This can happen at times. You can dream of a dead person that looks older than how he/she was on earth.
When this happens, it is a sign that your past habits and lifestyle are trying to resurrect. This is the first spiritual meaning that can be gleaned from this dream.
Therefore, you have to be cautious.
Now, another spiritual meaning points to the nature of sin.
In the bible, the dead nature of man is referred to as the old man.
Therefore, when you dream of a deceased person that looks older than while on earth, it means that sin is trying to come back into your life. This is a message to inspire a deeper level of consecration to God.
As you devote yourself to God, you will protect yourself from falling into the trap of sinfulness.
When you dream of a dead person wearing white clothes:
This is a good sign that your guardian angel has come to visit you.
Before you make such a conclusion, the dead person in your dream must be close to you.
The universe will not use strangers as a spiritual sign of your guardian angel. When you see a dead person wearing white clothes, this means that your guardian angel is around.
This creates a positive atmosphere around you, which opens your spiritual life to sensitivity.
When you see a dead person that is sleeping:
This means that the person is resting in peace.
This vision will come a few days after you lose someone. This dream intends to bring peace to your heart concerning the deceased person.
This message is also intended to reveal the good deeds of the person.
Whenever you dream of a dead person that is sleeping, it means that the soul of the deceased is resting in peace.
Someone you want to forget in your dream
Dreaming of someone you want to forget brings vital lessons to you.
This is why you should not discard such dreams. Whenever you keep seeing the person you want to forget in a dream, this is a sign that there is something you have to learn.
Knocking on your door:
When someone you intend to forget is knocking on your door, this means that the past is knocking on your door.
This means that the past is trying to get access into your life.
The universe can remind you of the past by sending the vision of a dead man in your dream, or by bringing the person you want to forget into your dream.
Therefore, whenever you are tempted to discard this dream, remind yourself of this. Instead of paying attention to the person in your dream, let your gaze be fixed on the message, which is concerning your past.
This means that your past is trying to resurface.
Looking at you:
When someone you want to forget is looking at you in a dream, this is a sign that the person is thinking of you at the moment.
Now, this does not mean that you should try to reach out to such a person. It is simply to reveal the intention of the person to you.
The dream is a reflection of the energy from the person.
Laughing with someone:
This means that the person has forgotten about you, and moved on.
Most especially in a relationship.
Now, this is a message of release. That is, if you have been holding back because of the fear of hurting such an individual, this dream should release you from holding back. This dream is intended to strengthen your conviction enough to move on as well.
Holding your hands:
When someone you want to forget is holding your hands in a dream, this means that the person doesn’t want to let you go.
Now, you have the decision to either let go of the person or consider forgiveness. The spiritual world will not make this decision for you.
Therefore, open your heart to receive this message.
Your ex in a dream
Dreaming of your ex can be a lot of stress – most especially if you want to desperately forget such an individual. However, there are spiritual messages surrounding this dream, and you should pay attention o them all.
Proposing to you:
Whenever your ex is proposing to you in a dream, this means that you are going to get back together with your ex.
Therefore, begin to prepare for this.
Most times, this dream will come because you desire to get back together with your ex.
Running ahead of you:
When you see your ex running ahead of you, then it means that you should also move on.
This is a sign that your ex has moved on already.
This might hurt you, but it is best to accept this reality earlier. In addition to this, pray to the universe to strengthen your resolve to forget about your past relationship with your ex.
Swimming in an ocean:
When your ex is swimming in an ocean (in a dream), this means that your ex is thinking about you. This means that your ex remembers what you shared in the past, and still desires it.
Furthermore, this can also mean that you will meet your ex soon. This could be the start of a new relationship with each other.
Checking the time:
This means that your past is trying to come back into your life. Dreaming of your ex checking the time is not a good sign.
Therefore, you need to ensure that your past does not resurface. One of the ways to prevent this is by taking away every form of condemnation for your past mistakes.
Your husband or wife in a dream
Seeing your husband or wife in a dream has the following spiritual messages:
- You will experience marital bliss: If you have been bothered about your marital life, dreaming that you are playing with your spouse means that you are blessed with bliss. This will materialize shortly.

Therefore, don’t be carried away by the beauty of such a dream. Take it as a sign to become spiritually aware of what goes on in your atmosphere.

Therefore, allow the following things to usher you into the meaning of this dream:
- The personality of the person.

Yes, it can be a spiritual message. Dreaming about a guy you have never met is a prophetic sign that you are going to meet the person.
