So in this article I will share with you some information which will help you in being able to interpret your personal dream to know what it really means for you as an individual in your life.
The Difference Between a Spiritual Death Vs. Physical Death
In order to properly interpret the meaning of this dream, one needs to fully understand the difference between a spiritual death, versus a physical death. Often when we think about death and dying, we immediately think of the death of the physical body.
However, while many of us are physically living we are spiritually dead. In the Bible and Christian faith, a spiritual death is seen as a separation from God.
Oftentimes it is stated that we have immersed ourselves in sin and in this state of sin, we have created a disconnection from God leaving us spiritually dead.
The idea of sin does not always mean that we have committed a cardinal crime. Sin can also be interpreted when we go against ourselves, when we go against what we know to be right and healthy for ourselves and when we disconnect ourselves from the source of what is right, loving and wholesome.
When we experience a spiritual death we experience a disconnection from all that is good divine wholesome, abundant and progressive in our lives.
When we are faced with the spiritual death it means that we are faced with problems and difficulties which make life unbearable and causes further disconnection from our connection with God and all things prosperous to the growth of our soul.
Luckily, unlike the physical death which is an absolute disconnection from our physical body and our physical life, spiritual death gives us still an opportunity for a second chance and opportunity. This gives us an opportunity to become connected to ourselves again and as a result connected to the Divine source of wellness love life and progression.
How to Know If Your Dreams About Death are of a Spiritual or Physical Death
Our higher self is always giving us guidance, alerting us to pressing things in our life. If something is about to have a very deep impact on our life and well-being, our higher self will warn us through our dreams. That way we can prepare ourselves, especially as in the case of death.
Any dreams about death will get our attention. There is no greater warning signal from our inner self to get our full undivided attention, than the threat of death of any kind. Luckily dreams about death can have two very different meanings. There is the physical death and there is the spiritual death.
Spiritual Death –
If your dream about death is a spiritual death, you may not experience any of the usual experiences that are common to a real, physical death. You may experience a follow up dream which may reveal more information about the direction of your life. Most dreams are linked. If you have not realized that, it is because you may not have taken the time to record or journal your dreams. When you begin to analyze and study your dreams, you will realize that your dreams are part of a puzzle. More information can be added to each follow up dream.
Physical Death –
Dreams about death, whether they be your death or the death of someone you know, will have a somber tone. The contents of the dream, will mirror what would happen if a real life death occurred. There would be leading information in the dream, which would reveal more about the death. Watch for the other characters in the dream. What are they doing? Are there wearing black? Are they crying or expressing their awareness of this death? What else within the dream, supports the story of a physical death?
The Secret Language of Dreams And How to Interpret The True Dream Language
A spiritual death, will uproot your life. It can be a very dramatic happening, with lots of sorrow and grief. However the emotions will be different from a physical death. A spiritual death will be filled with emptiness and confusion. You may experience feelings as if your life won’t be the same again.
On the other hand a physical death could have you feeling deep sadness, detachment, and emotionally distress. Much of what you feel will have to do with how close you have been to the person who died in the dread.
Physical death is final, however spiritual death still has even the faintest glimmer of hope.
The thing is, when we wake up we try to interpret our dream experience by analyzing it from a physical perspective. This often causes us to lose the deeper meaning of the dream.
One form of language which travels from the spiritual/psychic dream level to the physical level are our emotional states of being. Our emotions are how we interpret what is happening.
When you are existing in the dream state as your all knowing self, you have emotional responses to what you are experiencing.
In the dream state you know, if something is a cause for concern. You know, if something has a different meaning from what it appears to be in physical form. You have all the answers and the meaning of everything when you are existing as your all-knowing psychic, dream self. That is what you must focus on in order to fully interpret your dreams.
