Psychological Meaning: The shadowy ghosts of your dreams
symbolize those aspects of yourself that you fear. But it is fear itself that makes them frightening. Expose these dark lurking images into the bright light of day and you will realize that it is only your own fear that makes them nightmares
. You must understand that there are many, different energies that make up your psyche. Your dream
also reflects your own fears about death and dying. Freud thought that ghosts are actually the visions of people who are afraid of death. In this sense, the ghost would not be real at all but rather a projection of our subconscious mind.
