Seeing yourself communicating with dead relatives in a dream may symbolize a form of necromancy, recovery from the loss of loved ones, the state of your mind, spiritual attack, or witchcraft based on the specific context of that unique dream. I will be breaking down each of these points and also give relevant examples where possible.
Spiritual meaning of seeing your dead child or spouse in a dream.
This dream reveals the state of your mind as you are dealing with the pain of the loss of a very close and special person. If you had recently lost your child or spouse, this dream may show up frequently because of the bonding you had.
It also depends on what your mind was processing during the day. Hence, the dream is a reflection of your thoughts. It’s your memories that are triggering this dream.
Communicating with dead people is a form of spiritual attack.
Communicating with relatives in a dream may also be a form of a spiritual attack or witchcraft depending on the context of that dream. Necromancy is the practice of talking or relating with the souls of the departed, either relatives or any other familiar person.
The person you see maybe a demon in the form of a familiar person. These demons can appear in your dreams to manipulate and mislead you, by bringing memories of the departed. These dreams are also associated with witchcraft. (Please read Isaiah 8:19, Isaiah 65:4)
“When men tell you to consult mediums and spiritists, who whisper and mutter, should not a people inquire of their God? Why consult the dead on behalf of the living?” Isaiah 8:19
This dream opens up your body to demons. And the act of necromancy is highly forbidden in the scriptures. It’s an occult practice.
A dead person calling you to follow them in a dream.
Seeing someone who was evil calling you to follow them in a dream, is a sign that you are under attack from the spirit of death, and that is why it desires you. Pray and dedicate to destroy this evil dream in the name of Jesus Christ.
What the Bible says about communicating with dead people in a dream.
The Bible is clear that we have no association or fellowship with those who have passed on. Therefore, forbidding the practice of talking to dead people by any means.
King Saul was judged for summoning the spirit of Samuel the prophet through a medium. The person that appeared to him was not Samuel, but a familiar spirit that pronounced God’s judgment on King Saul. (1 Samuel 28:8-11).
We should beware of spirits because not all are from God. (1 John 4:1). Most of the spirits that manifest in dreams are demonic.
And it is no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light. 2 Corinthians 11:14
Can angels take the form of dead people to communicate God’s Will?
God can communicate to you through an angel in the form of a familiar departed person. It is also wise to consider how this person lived. We’re they believers or unbelievers? And if believers, we’re they faithful to Christ?
There was a lady whose husband had just passed away. Both were faithful believers in Jesus Christ. A time came when she had serious financial challenges and she remembered they had saved some money. However, she could not figure out where her late husband had kept it. She knew the money was in their bedroom, but could not know where exactly her husband kept it.

The lady prayed fervently to God to show her where the money was. One night, she had a dream in which her late husband showed her where he had kept their saving. The money was in the Waldrop, wrapped carefully inside an old leather coat. That’s why it was difficult for the lady to find it.
She knew that it was God communicating to her. When she walked up, she found the money that her late husband had shown her in the dream. This was an answer to her prayer request. God used an angel who took the form of her husband.
The whole idea of dream interpretation depends on the context of your unique dream. I am using the word unique since similar dreams and dream symbols may have different meanings.
What you need to do about these dreams.
- Fast and pray to destroy every evil spirit behind the dream.
- Dedicate these dreams to God to destroy them.
- If dead people are calling you to follow them in a dream, please disconnect yourself wholly from them by breaking family altars behind such evil dreams.
