Dreams are rudiments of the great state to come. We dream what is about to happen.


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.

    So a girl whome i know has feelings for me, yet I'm not fond of her, yet i have given her intimacy on a couple of occasions. She told me she has had SEVERAL dreams of me dying. I'm scared to know what this means. I read the description above but I'm still confused as to what it could really mean for me or for her. Any suggestions?

  • stacy (11 years ago)

    As a kid i used to have dreams where my whole family would die within the same week. every one by a different way. more often than not i would try to save them and it was useless. i couldnt do anything. i moved 6 hours away from home when i was 18 and the dreams stoped for a while. now im in my early 20s and i only dream of my Dad passing away. Its usually by heart attack or car accident and no one is sad about his death but me. it seems so real that i have to call him as soon as i wake up and make sure he is ok. i dont understand why its just my dad now.

    Last night I dreamt that I died.It was at the back of my cousins garden in an alley way. I was approached by three Pakistani men in white robes with the rambo style headbands.They first shot my two dogs and then killed me by shooting me right in the head. I knew what was happening but was unable to react or move.All of a sudden I saw a very bright white light and that was it.I woke up terrified and havnt stopped thinking about it today...

So we go to where he's buried and he's mummifyed in atiny box i clearly see his form. So my dad and sister decide to un mummify him to say goodbye but whilst I'm outside for some reason there's a drive by.

    I had a weird reaccuring dream when I was little it was about this person in the ER having surgery and then this black shadow would appear and the person would die and I had this dream over and over again for weeks. I'm still trying to figure out what that dream meant. I don't have it anymore though.

  • Caroline O' connor (13 years ago)

    Last night I had a strange dream I was laying on a bed with my boyfriend and I was dying (cant remember what happened before then, why I was dying) the grim reeper flew in and I said to my boyfriend it's time for me to go he gave me a big kiss and then I just seemed to disappear. When I reappeared I was in an alleyway and there was three young children (perhaps 4 years old)on bikes, one of them cycled over and stap me in the leg with a meat cleaver i tried to pull his hand away but he was way to strong, he was cutting my leg deeper and deeper. Woke up after that a little bit scared and wondering what the hell it was all about
