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.

    Had the most awful vivid dream last night...my mum text me to say that ny sister and her partner had been run over and they both died. I was in pieces, rang the man i've been seeing who had a go at ne that he was busy and I know that so why the heck am I ringing him we had a row and I ended up splitting with him. Towards the end of the dream I learned my 3yo son had been with my sister and her boyfriend when they got run over and my son had died too. And I was sitting on my kitchen floor with the tub of cornflake cakes we made at xmas knowing i should throw them away but not being able to let go? Woke up at 3am in absolutely floods of tears, felt like my heart was breaking. Really unnerved me.

    Let's start off with since I was very young I have always had nightmares, can't sleep for 2 days after nightmares. Now 30 years later I still have nightmares but have gotten use to them. But last night I dreamt that I was I teenager out with friends all on dates there are 6 of us total. When one of the guys starts being aggressive with one of the girls and I intervene. Then the guy pulls out a knife and proceeds to stab me. He stabs me twice in the stomach and I get away to a phone to call the cops. Just as I pick up the phone he starts stabbing me again this time all over. He stabs me in the mouth, throat, chest, arms, and legs. I just lay there hoping by now he thinks I am dead but I am not and he finely leaves. I am laying there with blood all over and around me thanking God he finally stopped and left. Ambulance arrives takes me away and I survive with multiple scars all over my body and face. Then I just know it is one year later and out with friends again and that same guys comes out of no where and stabs me in the throat. This time I fall to the ground bleeding out till I am dead. Now mind you all my dreams are very vivid. I could feel the pain every time he stabbed me. Plus the last time I had that dream I was 5 and it was my first nightmare. It terrified me then and it terrified me now.

    Since I was younger I would have dreams of things that I would see happen and sooner or later they would happen. Eventually I reached a point when I couldn't dream at all. Around the time I was 14 the dreams started to come back every few nights. Around this time I also started to hear things in my sleep. I could hear a heavy breathing as I was waking up and would hear an animal kind of growl next to my bed that would wake me up. I thought it was in my head.. As I was getting older my dreams started happening more and I would hear the voices and sounds less. I would have an awkward deja vu moments after having a conversation with somebody and reliving that moment. Sometimes I would have a dream that I went to the store to get something and the cars I saw in my dream where the exact cars and the exact colors they were in my dream. Now I'm 19 and I'm still having the same dreams but they just seem more vivid and now I'm also dreaming of dying. From the time I was little it was hard for me to remember what I had dreamt about the night before but as I got older it would be like a memory that I kept through the whole morning and it would just feel like weird deja vu when it happened. But I can't remember how I'm dying in my dreams, just a feeling I'd never felt before that make me feel that way. For some reason it feels like I'm drowning but idk

    I dreamt that i died in a car accident. The thing is I didn't see myself in the car accident, in my dream I had overheard my uncle call my dad and tell him i was in a car accident and died. However i was still walking around and i felt like i was soaking wet.It felt as if no one could see me, when i went to a restaurant where my ex boyfriend was at, i went running up to him crying asking if he could see me, he said yes and hugged me. He then started kissing me and touching me, i told him to stop he wouldn't.I asked him to please give me a ride home and he said first we would stop somewhere of course to have sex. (the reason we broke up is because he lied to me, he's married). In the dream when i told him no, he told me personally he was married and his wife was going into labor. I ran off. And then i was in a different place now alive, everyone could see me, I was applying for a job with my other co-workers. When my current boss got there I began to cry because all he said were good things about me, i felt like i had dissapointed him and it didn't feel right at all, I began to ask for his forgiveness. In my dream i remember he said in life you have to take new opportunities... I'm terribly confused on my entire dream.

  • Daniel (3 years ago)

    The dream I had, I was walking through this strange area light seemed to be there but far away, I felt cold and in pain, the pain kept growing around my face, i see a mirror and walk up to it, I see a Blade Saw spinning and slicing my cheeks open slowly going through my head, I feel a searing pain around this time, The mist begins to surround me and the pain vanishes, i stand back up and i only feel the pain slightly, with blood around me, then the dream starts over, I've been having this dream for 9 days straight so far, each time with a bit more detail and it goes just a bit farther. Every time i wake up i feel pain on the inside of my cheeks.If someone has any idea why I keep dreaming this, I would love to know,
  • Vaughan Sheward (3 years ago)

    I had a dream that my mother had to strangle my old german sheppard in order to stop her suffering from old age, even though she is still perfectly healthy. And then during the same dream, I was in a room with all my friends and family, then suddenly the room started to fill up with water. In order to save everyone I swam down a whole in order to find the source of the water. When I got to the end I was ambushed by a group of Mafia gangsters, who had used the water as a means of luring me into a trap. My loved ones were saved, but I was then help up against a wall and shot into pieces by massive guns. My final thought that I remember from the dream was that I said, 'Good Bye World', and was then shot in the head. At this point everything went blank, and then I woke up.Please can someone help me to interpret what this dream meant, and why the contrast in terrible dreams merging together.Any help will be much appreciated.Thank you

    I had a dream that we were back home and my extended fanily and I were having a large reunion type family dinner and every single one of my family members (around 50 people) was shot dead just before I was shot dead.What scared me most about this dream was that the first night we got to my aunts house from the airport our entire family was gathered for a dinner (like my dream) and someone had called in from downstairs but when my sister asked who it was nobody responded and I hadn't thought about it till now.Also in my dream the shooter had come upstairs from the first floor (like the real life situation).I am a very spiritual person and I strongly believe that had we let that stranger upstairs we could have all been dead right now.
