What Does It Mean To Dream of a Graveyard/Grave or Cemetery
Dream of a Graveyard generally frightens us and when we wake up we are impressed by the image. Even after the centuries and epochs, the human being is not coupled with the idea of death.
Dreaming of graves can be very disturbing or unpleasant, since our mind will directly associate it with death or bad omens, although it really does not usually have anything to do with death despite hiding unpleasant news. These types of dreams can symbolize health problems in the near future or a bad streak in business, it is not the time to undertake since you will find problems and setbacks that will not allow you to achieve success.
If we have recently lost a family member or friend, this dream will only tell us the weight of the loss is still in our subconscious and that we have to find a way to overcome it.
The graveyard is death for many. However, if we review the artistic expressions, many creations have started from this context. The Graveyard has been a source of inspiration for painters, poets, and musicians.
In some cultures like the Mexican, for example, death is not a tragedy. For some Buddhist practices, death is only transit to new life.
Thus, associations with death are sometimes cultural, and not necessarily negative. Much less is the Graveyard, where the farewell ritual is performed.
It is interesting to know where the word Graveyard comes from “it comes from the vulgar Latin ‘cemetery’, and ‘osmeterium ‘, which in turn comes from the Greek ‘koimeterion’, whose meaning is: the place to sleep (Kosmo: sleep/lie down / lie down, -therion: place suffix). To Castilian, it came from Latin as ‘cemeterio’, but through the centuries an interspersed ‘n’ slipped into the term.
