    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.

        Dreams about death are common, especially regarding people who you currently or previously had a strong emotional connection with. Allow the negative aspects of this dream to fade.

      Dreamed that I was going to an event with friends. The person I’m in love with decided to come because of me, but went in a different car. (In real life I’m not sure how he feels about me). In the dream, the car he was going in was with my older friends, people I don’t see that often anymore. Waited for the group to arrive for a long time. Then my mom pops up in the dream and said my crush died in a car accident. He wanted to go slow while the old friends drove carelessly, but he was the only one who died. I was beyond devastated. i know he has been on my mind a lot since I have developed strong feelings for him, but this vivid dream was overwhelmingly terrifying.

        This dream is a reflection of your emotional connection with this person. Take this time to determine what you want for this relationship. Speak directly and honestly with him about your thoughts and feelings. Give him an opportunity to share himself with you as well. Allow the negative aspects of this dream to fade. Have a great day, Andie!

      I dreamed of someone who I have not seen in person since I was prob 17 and I’m 40. This person also this summer was arrested for something that is not ok to do to some one else or others. In my dream this person is in a car racing another car. The car ends up in a field not wrecked and the person appears to be out of it and the next day in my dream I’m told the person has died.

      Hi I dreamt that I was suddenly 5/6 months pregnant and I was at a work leaving party playing with someone else’s toddler son who led me to a pond. He went in the pond even though I told him not to and I called my friend to come and help. By the time she got there he was drowning and dead by the time she pulled him out and tried to resuscitate him. I woke up feeling so sad and guilty for my inaction. I wonder what it means. Anon

        These dreams are reflections of your knowledge of birth and of death. You may be interested in having a child, or you may not be interested in doing so. Allow the negative aspects of this dream to fade. Allow this dream to influence you in a positive direction. Treat everyone in your life with kindness and compassion. Have a great day, Anon!

      Hi. Last Night I dreamed that my boyfriend was about to die. It was something like Euthanasia that his death was planned because in the dream everybody knew he will die. I really saw him lying unconsciously I just don’t know where but it was not on the coffin. It was my first time to dream something like that about him.
