If you or someone was suffering badly on the day before you dreamed about grief, it’s possible that is why it filtered into your dream.
Grief can also signify the need to act in a dignified way. If someone is being inappropriate in your waking hours, it’s possible this lack of respect made you dream of a time when dignity is paramount.
The dream might be a reflection of your own grief that you’re going through in your waking hours. This could be your way of coping with what has happened.
If you were dreaming of loss, it’s possible you are struggling to let go of the past. In order to move on you need to release these feelings and experiences before you allow room for new ones.
Perhaps you are repressing your grief and need to release it and express your sadness before it takes over your every waking thought.
It’s possible something is bothering more than you think- perhaps its time to address this issue rather than trying to pretend it doesn’t exist.
You may be mourning a period in your life that has come to an end- a job, a relationship, a friendship, living in a particular location, school, college or university. Whatever it might be might still feel like a great loss- one you are trying to overcome.
On the flipside, your dream might be telling you that you need to stop dwelling in grief and get on with your life. It has gone on long enough and fixating on the past is having a detrimental effect on your future.
If you were grieving for the loss of a loved one who is still alive and well- perhaps you need to appreciate this person more than you are at present. The dream might have shown you what the world would be like without them and a reminder that you ought to cherish them more.
