Many people relate their dearest childhood memories to their grandfathers.
Those were the days when they were careless and only thought about games and pleasure, without a single worry on their mind. Their grandfathers did everything to fulfill every desire they had.
Because of that special bond, people continue dreaming about their grandfathers even after their death, trying to revive the moments of happiness they felt in their presence.
Remember your own childhood. If you were fortunate to have a grandfather and spend time with him, he probably allowed you to do many things your parents didn’t let you and that made your grandfather even more special.
Grandfathers are important dream symbols. They often symbolize carelessness and satisfaction, security, feeling protected and cared for, nurturing, helping, support, hanging around, games, fun, etc.
They were not as judgmental as your parents were when you did something wrong, and you could have asked them all the questions you were hesitant to ask your parents.
Your grandfather most likely took you to school every day, or you would spend the weekends and your holidays with him and your grandmother.
Dreams about grandfathers who are still alive are often a calling of our subconscious to spend more time with them. Such a dream often indicates that your grandfather is thinking about you and missing you, and is a reminder to visit him soon.
Seeing grandfathers in dreams also symbolize permanence, getting a new job, or buying a new house, harmony, happiness, relief and peace. These dreams could be an announcement of receiving news from some good friends you haven’t seen in a while.
They are also a sign of successful accomplishments, receiving good news, protection, love, tradition, family values, wisdom, etc. These dreams often symbolize acceptance and unconditional love.
A grandfather in a dream could symbolically represent some wise old man from your surroundings.
Sometimes, these dreams point out to some characteristics your grandfather has or had and you are missing in your personality, but would want to possess.
Dreams of Dead Grandfather
The memories of your grandfather are usually happy ones and for that reason dreams about dead grandfather are often a reflection of your desire to bring that happiness back into your life.
Dreams about dead grandfather usually reveal your grief and sadness because of his departure and the fact that you still didn’t come to terms with his death. You possibly still miss your grandfather and you cannot believe that he is gone forever.
Often this dream is a reflection of guilt you feel towards your dead grandfather for something you did or didn’t do.
Maybe you were too lazy to go visit your grandfather often or you didn’t have the time or made excuses for avoiding the visits, although he called you frequently. Maybe you said something bad to your grandfather or you did something bad, and you never had the chance to apologize or try to repair the damage you caused.
In such cases, our subconscious is trying to give us relief of guilt trough dreams in which we talk to our dead grandparents, apologize or do something else to mend our mistake.
You could also be dreaming about your dead grandfather if you feel guilty for not visiting his grave or cleaned it for some time.
Often these dreams represent messages from our subconscious we should listen to. You need to remember as many details of the dream to be able to interpret it correctly.
If your dead grandfather was telling you something in the dream, it is important to try to remember his words because they might be an important message for you.
In some cases, a dream about a dead grandfather foretells danger for you or some of your living relatives in the near future and warns you to be alert and attentive so you could try to prevent bad things from happening.
