What does it mean to dream about Death?


To dream of seeing any of your people dead, warns you of coming dissolution or sorrow. Disappointments always follow dreams of this nature. To hear of any friend or relative being dead, you will soon have bad news from some of them. Dreams relating to death or dying, unless they are due to spiritual causes, are misleading and very confusing to the novice in dream lore when he attempts to interpret them. A man who thinks intensely fills his aura with thought or subjective images active with the passions that gave them birth; by thinking and acting on other lines, he may supplant these images with others possessed of a different form and nature. In his dreams he may see these images dying, dead or their burial, and mistake them for friends or enemies. In this way he may, while asleep, see himself or a relative die, when in reality he has been warned that some good thought or deed is to be supplanted by an evil one. To illustrate: If it is a dear friend or relative whom he sees in the agony of death, he is warned against immoral or other improper thought and action, but if it is an enemy or some repulsive object dismantled in death, he may overcome his evil ways and thus give himself or friends cause for joy. Often the end or beginning of suspense or trials are foretold by dreams of this nature. They also frequently occur when the dreamer is controlled by imaginary states of evil or good. A man in that state is not himself, but is what the dominating influences make him. He may be warned of approaching conditions or his extrication from the same. In our dreams we are closer to our real self than in waking life. The hideous or pleasing incidents seen and heard about us in our dreams are all of our own making, they reflect the true state of our soul and body, and we cannot flee from them unless we drive them out of our being by the use of good thoughts and deeds, by the power of the spirit within us. * See Corpse.

    Last night I had a dream where I was showing this magnificent horse at a horse show. He was stunning light brown, and I was in a jumping class. All of the sudden he spooked and bucked me off, kicking me in the ear as I hit the ground and killing me instantly. In my dream I knew I was dead, but I could see everything following my death. I saw my mom running up to me and people crying. I could hear a baby wailing and my mom was calling my boyfriend. It then flashes forward to a few hours later, i could see my boyfriend sitting at a desk. He was writing me a note. It said, "My love, today you took your last breath. Today your life was taken from you and I wasn't there to protect you. I'll always regret not going to your show.. maybe if I went everything would have ended up different. I should've been there, forgive me. I'll ever forget you.." and then my drewam faded into my burial. I saw flashes of faces. my family and friends. And then, I woke up to the sound sad music playing in my phone from pandora. I don't know what it meant but I've been trying to find answers..

    I had a dream last night that I was dying and it was known that I was dying like I knew I was going to die but I told my mom that when I die I want her to buy a bunch of lilies all over the house. When I googled what lilies meant it said it means that the person associated with it was going to stupruggke with physical Heath or even dissolution so I'm really worried.

  • Mae (2 years ago)

    I had a dream some of my friends were murdered at different times throughout the dream, I then saw the crime scenes and I was so overcome by sorrow that I saw what happened to them through their ghosts. After that I was filled with pain and guilt that I should have done something and that it was my fault. After I grieved for them I went back in time to stop their murders and I caught the killer.

    I had a dream of being at a party once.It was like a garden party. I wandered off b y myself & on one side of the yard it's everything is alive & green including people. On the other side of the hedges I walked through everything was like desert. There were skeletons all around & they all stood up & started walking. The dream ended. I never understood that one.

    I had the biggest unexpected dream,somehow my family and some uncle's with their kids went on a vacation with us. We all got on a roller coaster and then me,my 3 uncle's, my cousin who's 4, and my cousin who's 2 were in a hospital bed. I was all confused but apparently we were hurt. My mom came in the room with my uncle who's the middle child from the guys, they were crying. My mom spoke up and told me my 2 uncle's died except the middle child from the guys, and that my cousins weren't going to make it. I couldn't keep it in and cried so much. We went back home and nothing was the same, as much as I tried to be the same nothing worked. Everything around was dull and depressing everyone wasn't the same even I wasn't the same. My friend from school suggested that we go to the next door neighbors to help me get back to normal, I agreed. When we went there was so many enourmas snakes. I jumped over them one by one I got to a picnic table and a lady with a black shirt was sitting down with her baby. I jumped on up the table and a snake tried to bite me but I woke up, everything was so vivid it felt like it was soooo real😭😭😭.
