The meaning of Live / living in dream | Dream interpretation
When something is live it is full of – perhaps unspent – spiritual energy. Considering such energy may alter our perception of the life we live.
Psychological / emotional perspective: If we consider that to live is to use energy effectively, any image in dreams that highlights this, constitutes a reminder. Live ammunition, for instance, suggests that care and control of danger is necessary.
Material aspects: The implication that an animal or person in dreams is living suggests that it still exists.
To dream of a dead relative as being alive suggests either their existence in memory or within the spiritual dimension, depending on our beliefs.
