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.

  • Mae (3 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.

  • Janet (3 years ago)

    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😭😭😭.

  • kal (4 years ago)

    I have a friend who committed suicide and I had a dream about him shortly after he died. We were back in elementary school (we were ending sophomore year when he died) and I was in line waiting to eat lunch but I happened to look over and it was my friend that had killed himself? I asked my classmates if that was my friend and they said "no, that's his brother." but it was clearly him! He looked exactly the same from when we were in elementary school. I ran over to him and gave him a big hug and instantly started crying. I asked him if he was okay and why he did such a thing but he wouldn't answer me. The whole time we were sitting there all he did was hold me and cry.. what does my dream mean?

  • Maranda (4 years ago)

    About 4 months ago a friend of mine died in a car accident. About a week ago I had a dream that we were still acting in a show together. One night durring rehersal I stopped, put my prop down, and said. "I can't do this anymore! We have to stop. I know what will happen if we continue!" Referring to my friends death. Then I see him lying on the floor with blood coming from his head. I held him in my arms and pleaded him not to let go and to "stay with me." In my dream he lived. But he lived because half of his injuries transferred over to me. I have had this dream in the same order every night since.
  • Neisha (4 years ago)

    I had a dream that I was in a room. Everything was grey and hazy, I was on the floor, looking up at myself. I was dying right there in front of me. I didn't ask for help, didn't cry or scream. I was okay with what was happening to me. And so was she, she watched me with a cold expression and did absolutely nothing.
  • Raven (4 years ago)

    For the past 2 weeks, I have had dreams about my death. It is different everynight. It goes between suicide and being murdered and it's never the same way. Its getting hard to want to go back to bed at this point. The lack of sleep is making it worse. I didnt sleep last night and I took a nap like an hour ago. Woke up and my heart was literally in pain. In my dream, I was shot in the chest by a girl. Long dark hair, I didnt know her. A few days ago, I hung myself. Its never the same.. Its not reoccurring in the since that I am having the same dream but every night I die. Some times I wake up with scars and bruises. I think I must has kicked my wall in my sleep or something.. I dont

And so I walked up to this persons door and some boy came out of it and this boys always in my dreams but I don't know why and he put his hands on my arm and my skin started to like bruise up where ever he touched me and then we walked to these big glass windows that they had and he kicked my though them but no seemed to notice.

  • sceagles515 (4 years ago)

    I have had a reoccurring dream but not in any given time frame. The 1st i was driving on the thruway and just got on to the ramp when someone stopped and I slid into them. I was in my convertible. Then another car slid into me. Then another car slid into them into me.. Each time a car hit into me.. I felt my body being jerked violently and my face being pushed into the stearing wheel. Then in my dream a semi slid into me And my car was now crushed and my face went all the way into my steering wheel causing a very grusome death experience.. I woke up at that moment.. I then started to driving a different car due to various reasons. The dream went away. My cars engine died and now im back driving my convertible, and today I had a dream where i was in my car and it was snowing intensely. A large amount of snow was on my soft top. I hit my window for some unknown reason and all the snow on top of my soft top came pouring in ontop of me. And i was crushed in my car to death. I have no idea what these dreams mean. But each time I woke up as soon as my death occurred. And the mechanism of injury is the same each time.. Being crushed in my convertible.. Any ideas why this is happening? My car both times was in perfect detail, it seemed so real..
