It's been like ages since I've had a nightmare. Woke up shouting and can vaguely remember what I was dreaming of. There were like 2 friends sitting down on a table with me when one of them's face started to crumble. I stood up and placed a hand facing it, and started praying incantations as hard as I can. After a while of trying and not succeeding in fending off the ghost, I woke up.
Like what people say, what you dream may not manifest itself the same way as what the dream means. Dreaming of a devil might signify fortune.
This is what one of the sources say:
To see your own ghost in your dream, symbolizes aspects of yourself that you fear. This may involve a painful memory, guilt, or some repressed thoughts. Or you may be afraid of death and dying. Alternatively, ghosts are representative of something that is no longer obtainable or within reach. It indicates that you are feeling disconnected from life and society. Try to figure out what the ghosts wants or what it is looking for. The dream may also be a calling for you to move on and abandon your outdated modes of thinking and behavior.
To see the ghost of a living relative or friend in your dream, signifies that you are in danger of malice acts by that person.
To see the ghost of a dead friend/relative in your dream, suggests guilt and regrets concerning the past relationships with that particular person.
