Dream of my dead mother meaning
Similar to a dream about a dead father, dreaming about your dead mother usually means you seek her comfort and long for her presence.
However, the dream of my dead mother meaning has different explanations and interpretations. These include but are not limited to.
The awareness that your mum is dead
The truth is, the grief and healing of losing a mum is not an event. It is a process filled with emotional vacillations.
Living with such a loss is bound to trigger a yearning for your mother.
Dreaming of a dead mother means your subconscious is acutely aware of the hollowness left by the loss.
You are in the acceptance stage of grief
The reality of death is not a concept we quickly ease into.
It takes time and can be categorized as an emotional rollercoaster for anyone experiencing the loss.
Dream of my dead mother implies that I am slowly accepting the reality of the situation.
I.e., accepting the finality of death and that I might never be able to see or enjoy my mother’s companionship.
You are worried
Dreaming of a dead mother draws attention to the worry in your life. Are you deeply troubled by a situation in your life?
Say a case of financial constraint or concern that you might not be able to provide for those depending on you?
Such an affliction is likely to cause the dream of a dead mother.
You miss your mother
Dreams have been known to bring to light our deepest desires. If you long for your dead mom’s affection or presence, you are more likely to dream of your dead mother.
You are experiencing sorrow
Sorrow is, by default, one of the biggest triggers of dreaming about your dead mother.
It could be that you just lost someone so close to you and the parallelism in the feelings and emotions encountered between the current loss and that of your mother results in such dreams.
You are neglecting your responsibilities
When not in proximity with death, a dream of my dead mother, I interpret the dream to mean neglect in my awakened state.
There usually is a responsibility or an aspect I have neglected, and the dream is a way of my subconscious cautioning me to redress.
Dream of dead mother smiling
Dream of dead mother smiling is a tad uncommon but possible.
Seeing your dead mother smile in your dream suggests that you still have the sense of security you felt when she was alive.
This might imply feeling her close to you even if she is dead.
If her smile appears soft and calm in the dream of a dead mother smiling, the dream symbolizes your feelings towards her.
It could be happy thoughts about her or simply the fact that the memories you have with her are wholesome.

The dream, therefore, works to help you accept your reality while easing your grief towards a particular loss.
