Depicts our thoughts and feelings regarding death; our family heritage of attitudes or traditions; contact with the dead; things in our life we have ‘buned’; being melancholy about life or feeling different’ to other people; a relationship which we think is dead and buried’.
Symbolic of being spiritually dead, Matt. 8:28 NLT
A place of finality, i.E.
A business that has closed down
A dream of contrary. Usually, this is NOT a negative symbol.
If the cemetery was dark and gloomy, and/or overgrown, there is much in the dreamer’s life that needs to be cleaned up before he or she can move ahead. But if it was a clear day, and the cemetery was neat and well kept, the dreamer is free to move ahead with whatever plans he or she has made.
If there is someone with a serious illness in the dreamer’s immediate circle, a dark and gloomy cemetery probably reflects the dreamer’s fear rather than what is actually coming.
A bright cemetery is reassuring; there will be no burials just yet.
To dream of a cemetery suggests we are coming to terms with the end of a project or situation. It can also be symbolic of a spiritual awakening or arising.
A cemetery is the place of the dead but also of spiritual regeneration. As a place where we put aside the physical but can allow ourselves to mourn, it becomes an area of transition to something better.
Psychological / emotional perspective: In dreams we can often allow our fears to come to the surface in an acceptable way.
The cemetery in dreams is a place set apart, where we can confront our fears of death and dying.
Material aspects: The cemetery and its association with death can have a double meaning. It can represent the parts of ourselves that we have ‘killed off ’ or stopped using. It can also depict our thoughts and feelings about death and the attitudes and traditions surrounding it.
To dream that you are in a cemetery indicates that your life is filled with sorrow and anguish. There is an issue that is causing you great despair. This must be absolved or you could find yourself sinking into a deep depression.
Vision: Women who dream frequently about walking through a cemetery have nothing to be frightened about. It only means they need more peace and quiet—the job, children, and the house are taking their toll. Lingering about the cemetery: you are hanging on to the past. Walking into a cemetery: you are too preoccupied with past experiences. Do you want to bun- something so that you can start all over again? Bringing flowers to a cemetery: a death in the family.
Depth Psychology: The cemetery indicates anxiety caused by new or past problems, because you are forced to make a decision. See Death, Grave.
If you dream of a well kept cemetery it is a sign of happiness to come but an unkempt one shows that you will meet with opposition and adversity. This is the kind of dream that must be correlated with the other symbols of the dream, such as: open graves, flowers, funeral services, etc., as all of these things would change the benign aspect of a stroll through a well kept cemetery.
A well-kept cemetery; with flowers on the graves, indicates that you will have many friends who will be faithful to you for many years.
An unkempt cemetery indicates loss of friends; acquaintances rather than close friends.
(Burial ground; Grave; Graveyard) Seeing a cemetery or a graveyard in a dream means appeasement and comfort for a terrified person, and dismay to a comfortable and a relaxed person.
A graveyard represents the elements of fear, hope and return to guidance after heedlessness.
A cemetery represents the hereafter, because it is its vehicle.
A cemetery in a dream also represents the prison of the body, but in a dream, it also means seclusion, devotion, abstinence, asceticism or admonition. Acemetery also can be interpreted as the dead looking drunkard in a bar, a man laying flat in a prostitution house, the home of a heedless person who often sleeps rather than pray or a hypocrite whose deeds are not subject to receiving a heavenly reward, etcetera.
If a sick person walks into a funeral procession in a dream, it means that his illness will culminate in his death.
If he is not sick and then during that procession he weeps or prays for the deceased person in the dream, it means that he will repent of his sins, join spiritual study circles and serves the people of knowledge. Such a person also may attain a blessed spiritual station and benefit from what he hears and sees.
If one sees himself walking in a funeral procession and neglecting respect and contemplation, and instead laughs and jokes, it means that he will befriend evildoers and accept their evil conduct as a standard norm of behavior.
If one sees himself visiting a graveyard for seclusion, self-awakening and self-restraint, then if he reflects about words of truth, wisdom and repentance in his dream, it means that he will be asked tojudge between two people, and that he will rule with justice.
If one does not contemplate thus in the dream, it means that he will forget about something important or dear to his heart. Ifone enters the graveyard calling to prayers in a dream, it means that he will admonish people, commands what is good and forbids what is evil.
If one sees himself entering a graveyard and walking over the scattered bones of the dead people in a dream, it means that he will die and be buried there.
A cemetery in a dream also represents admonition, reading the Qur’an, crying, reminiscence, piety, surrender to one’s destiny and discarding worldly gains.
A cemetery in a dream also may represent the scholars, ascetics, governors, leaders, camps or a brothel.
The graves of saints or shrines in a dream signify innovation, heedlessness, intoxication, adultery, corruption and fear.
A stone tomb or a sarcophagus in a dream signifies profits, war prisoners, a booty or exposing one’s personal secrets. (Also see Burial; Grave; Shrine)
Funeral, Death. Longing for rest and relaxation in times of overwork and stress.

2. If in poor condition, troubles ahead.
3. If placing ﬂowers, indecisive.

To a widow or widower, the cemetery dream means a chance for a new way of living; to some, another marriage.
If the dreamer is elderly, the same dream indicates pleasant journeys.
Dreams of a cemetery represent change or the ending of a relationship or business affair. You may be grieving and moving through the bittersweet sorrow of missing your connection to a loved one or releasing a deeply held attachment. See Death.

A cemetery is a collection of dead organic matter. It is a sad and depressing place that doesn’t reflect any joy, and reflects even less hope. Dreaming about cemeteries may be a reflection of your mood or unresolved grief. It may literally represent sadness that comes from losing someone that you love, or it could represent your past and long-gone experiences. See also: Grave/Graveyard
If the cemetery of which you dream is well kept, it is a sign that you will overcome all the obstacles that confront you.

Being lost in, or terrified by: The fear of death, or the unknown.

Dreaming of a tomb represents a metaphorical opportunity for rebirth and a fresh start.
The word tomb actually means “tummy,” being the womb of the earth from which we are all born and return. Alternatively, a well-kept, elaborate tomb may reflect achievements and honors accumulated during your life.
