When you dream of characters that are ‘not living,’ yet still have a presence, something is unresolved within you and 'haunts' you. Explore what this character represents as a side of you that you have not processed or integrated. If the ghost frightens you or is hiding, that is all the more reason to explore the power that can be activated by giving it a voice and expression. If it is the ghost of someone who has passed, it can portray how you are processing the feelings associated with this passing. See Death. At the same time, the ghost is embodying qualities that you have adopted or ignored that can be either good or bad. Since a ghost is appearing in your dream, you might explore what may be repressed and the impact it has had on your well being. See also Shadow and Nightmare.
