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 had this dream where I was back at the hospital and no one noticed me and I still had all the tubes in me and so I got out of bed but I didn't talk and all you could hear was like the voices of all the nurses and my foot steps. 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. This dream was followed by my worst sleep paralysis episode.

    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..

    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 (6 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

    Had the most awful vivid dream last 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.

  • Brandon (6 years ago)

    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

  • Cecilia (6 years ago)

    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.
