What Does It Mean When You Dream About Someone Dying?

By on January 21, 2016






Death is unfortunately just another part of life. Like birth, it is a stage that happens in everyone’s life. In addition, everyone holds in common the trait of dreaming at night. Dreams are thought to show that your mind is healthy and interacting around you. When you get enough sleep at night, you will dream even if you do not remember the dreams. During some of these dreams, you may experience a loved one or someone else dying. Although this can be terrifying to experience during the dream, it is generally not a sign that someone is going to die. Instead, death is normally interpreted as one of the following dream meanings.

What Does Mean When You Dream About Someone Dying?

Dreams related to death can be extremely intense and traumatic to experience. You may wake up feeling panicked or worried about your loved one who died in the dream. Although this can be stressful to experience, it is normally not a sign that you should panic. There are many possible reasons why you may dream about death at night.

You Feel Afraid

Fear and feelings of being afraid are extremely common themes for your dreams. You may feel afraid of losing someone, and that could be the reason why you are dreaming of death. Likewise, death-related dreams may be caused by terrible childhood memories or phobias of water, public speaking, heights or similar things. Your mind is imprinted by the fears that you have, and your subconscious brings up this sensation of fear during your dreams.

Feelings of Guilt

After a terrible experience, you may feel guilty about your role or your lack of a role. Even if you were not involved in the situation, you may feel guilty about not being able to help. This is especially true after the death of a loved one. Even though there is no reason for you to feel guilty, it is common for these types of feelings to develop. When this happens, you may continue to have dreams about death.

You Feel Betrayed

One of the common reasons for seeing death in a dream is because you feel betrayed. You may dream that the person or people who betrayed you die for their betrayal. In this case, the dream is a sign that you want vengeance and remain upset by their actions.

Your Personality Is Incomplete

Sometimes, there are people who have too much control in your life. If a loved one is domineering and makes decisions for you, you may feel that they are dying as a way for your subconscious to escape from their control.

There Is a Psychological Disturbance

Your mind is not intended to be in a constant state of stress. When you experience a traumatic situation, you can experience psychological and emotional disturbances for a long time afterward. Long-term psychological disturbances can end up taking root within your subconscious mind. When you fall asleep at night, these negative feelings intermingle with your dreams to create thoughts of death or other traumatic situations.

Transformations

A dream of death can be an indication of transformations in your normal life. In a way, death is a type of rebirth, so it is often a sign of a figurative or literal rebirth in real life. Like the phoenix, your new habits, relationships and goals are rising out of the ashes of your past. As a result, you may experience dreams about death when you are suddenly experiencing major changes and transformations in your real life.

A Fear of Loss

Even if you do not have a traumatic event or negative feelings in your current life, that does not stop you from fearing loss. When you love someone, it is normal to fear losing them. This fear is replayed in your dreams by the person, loved one or family member actually dying. Don’t worry though—it is not a sign of the future or what is currently happening to them.

You Could Be Pregnant

Although there is no proof of this idea, a number of people have reported dreaming of death before or right after they get pregnant. This may be due to a more literal interpretation of death as a type of rebirth.

You Are Not Living Up to Your Potential

When you are not fulfilling your dreams and living up to your potential, you may feel guilty or unhappy. These feelings may result in you dreaming that you or someone else dies in the dream.

Negativity

At a very basic level, dreams of death could be a sign that you feel worthless, unhappy or exceptionally negative. These feelings cause your dreams to take a negative turn until you can become confident and happier in your normal life.

 

Instead of dreaming about someone dying, you may dream about someone who is already dead. One interpretation of this dream is that you feel like you are surrounded by people who do not really understand you. It could also mean that you are experiencing a material or personal loss that is effecting your outlook on the world.

Dead siblings in a dream is typically a sign that you miss spending time with your siblings. Meanwhile, dreaming of a dead parent or loved one talking to you is often a sign that you are trying to work through their death and come to terms with it. Dreams are often indications of what is going on in your mind, so they show that you are consciously or subconsciously concerned about a loved one who recently passed away.

If you see someone that is already dead, it is normally a sign that you miss that person. These dreams often occur around important anniversaries or during times when you are more likely to think about the person. Parents may also dream about a lost child because they want to keep them in their hearts. They may also dream about the child as an adult or graduating high school because they wish that they could see them grow up and have a happy life.

However, you can take them as a manifestation of the knowledge that life is temporary. Allow these dreams to infuse your actions with purpose.

    I had a dream that my friend/coworker slowly died in front of me. Then her body was moved to a back yard type location behind a building where I use to have meetings. Then I decided I’d go a steal money from her wallet which was strange. This was a Sunday morning. As I arrived I saw another friend had arrived at the church to set up. I felt bad and left. What does this mean. Please help.

      This dream does not mean that you will die. This means that she is concerned about your well-being. To repeat, this is not a sign or symbol that you are at any risk of danger or death. Take this dream as a reminder that life is precious. Share your kindness and compassion with all of the people in your life. Have a great day, Kk!

      There are many beliefs throughout the world. However, dreams of death are very common and almost never lead to death. Death in real life following a dream is simply a coincidence. Allow this dream to remind you that life is temporary and that death comes to everyone. Treat the people in your life with love and kindness to help make the life that they have better. Have a great day, Amrita!

    I had a dream that someone was following my best friend and I on our walk home. Then we started running. There was this construction site outside the school and she didn’t see it. I started screaming for her to stop and she didn’t. So she started to fall. I reached out for her and grabbed her hand just in time. Then she started to slip. She told me to not let go. I promised i wouldn’t and the nshe just said bye… And fell. I heard her head slam against the ground. She died when i promised i wouldn’t let go. I’m confused what this means.. What does my dream mean?

      Dreams of death happen. Your dream is not telling the future or revealing fate. Allow this dream to fade from your thoughts. Allow it to infuse your actions with positive energy. Share your kindness and compassion with him so he knows how you feel about him. Have a great day, Mary!

    Hey guys,

    My dream was about my best friend tripping and falling into the pool. Her ghost was there and she didn’t know that she died until she turn around. It transition to a home that I have never been in before but it was my home. And my crush was there and he wanted to have sex but I told him not today and then we went into the living room and I heard that they cut off her fingers so I sewed two of her fingers on my finger so I can have her forever. I don’t understand my dream.

      Your dream is a reflection of your thoughts and concerns. You may be concerned that you are losing your friend, and her finger may represent your desire to keep her close. As your relationship with your crush develops into a relationship, be sure to remember to make time for your best friend. Have a great day, Amy!
