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.

    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?

The I woke up

    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.

    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 (2 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 know.RaccoonLover98@Gmail.com

    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..

    Last night I had a dream of my little brother dying the dream started when I had stepped into my mother's room & she had said that my little brother had past away after surgery to his brain but, he doesn't have any health problems & my mother didn't really seem to care about it ...in fact she made a really inappropriate joke saying that he probably bent down and all the blood rushed to his head after he woke up from surgery ...then I was in a store with a friend that I used to be really close to & I was taking her what had hastened & I couldn't even finish my sentence even I was talking about him I would just start balling & crying hysterically...i really hope someone can explain to me what this means ,or give me some kind of explanation to why I had this dream
  • Pink (2 years ago)

    Awhile ago I had a dream. We were in school and i have this friend who could ride a motorcycle and she invited me, my sister and 2 more friends to come and ride with her cause she'll drive us all home. And it was pretty awesome too because her motorcycle had a tv (oh dreams.) and when she came to this car shop, my friend (guy) jumped out of the motorcycle because apparently, his home was just on the 2nd floor of that car shop. Then this guy (who i dont know) came out of no where and he gave me an envelope full of money. He said: Kill someone, this will be useful. Then when my friend (who drove the motorcycle) drove just on the sidewalk to get all ready to leave, my sister jumped out too. Then when the guy who gave me money went to my driver friend, he whispered something. Then immediately, my driver friend held out a gun toward my sister and it was a gun that shoots knives.Not bullets. Then my sister got stabbed. I cried and cried. And my driver friend left me and her and I was so afraid because it was soooooo real. Then when I woke up, tears were already falling down on my cheeks.

  • Danielle (2 years ago)

    Last night I had a dream (which felt awfully real) that my brother shot himself in the head with a gun & I witnessed it from inside our house we have a glass door & I saw it clear as day, but in my dream I felt like I was the only one who was completely mortified over this. In my dream my mom just looked at me with a few tears in her eyes I'm not sure exactly what she was saying but it was something along the lines of "I tried to tell him not to" & she was just shaking her head. Within the past year of 2015 we've had problems with my brother & his gf and just my immediate family in general a lot of crap has gone on...& my brother and his gf are newly pregnant with their first child together, she already has a 7 year old daughter. Not sure if them being pregnant recently has anything to do with it. Idk it just felt so real like I saw his body up close and everything I could see the gun shot wound too,it really freaked me out. & the article above just weirds me out even more, my family has been through so much lately & my friends have had their boyfriend & relatives passing away and sick recently...idk what to think
