There are many reasons that we see spirits in a dream. The most common reason for seeing spirits is that you are being visited by one! Who the spirit is can be the most questionable part of this unique dream symbol. You may recognize who the spirit is in your dream, if it is someone in your life that has passed on. The souls of pets that we have had in our lives can also visit us in our dreams. If you do not know the person then this may be a premonition of the soul of someone who is about to enter your life, or it could be one of your spirit guides or angels.
This could also be a visit from your twin flame or soul connection. Many people are fearful when they see a spirit in their dream, as they associate these experiences with ghosts and hauntings and things that have a negative connotation. The truth is that if you feel you saw a spirit or soul in your dream, then you did, but there is nothing to be afraid of. You were simply being visited by energy that you had in your life that was associated with pure love, or you will be in the very near future! If a message comes from the spirit and you do not know the person, then this may be your guides giving instructions, so pay attention!
