Felt very real I have died in my dreams. Most of the time I jerk awake before death comes. My first death dream where I died, I was shot. And I faded to black. And continued on in the adventure of the dream, but knew I was "not alive" in a physical body.
When I was 16 years old and my mother was in a very "particular" relationship, I had a dream in which I died. It wasn't pleasant but I gave no more credence to it than I did to anything else, the reason why is simple. I woke up the next day, to my ty life. Things are better now.
Don't stress about the mind, it is your friend, even if it does sometimes freak you out. Hope you are having a great evening. There is one dream that was the worst of them all. I don't really remember much of it, maybe a time span of an hour to an hour and a half. Everything was super vivid. All of the color's looked so real. I sat there, waiting. I do remember not having any friends or family with me. Finally, we got on the plane. We taxied to the runway; that's when everything went into chaos.
Planes started falling from the sky, disintegrating upon impact. I couldn't tell if I was yelling, but there wasn't any noise coming out of my mouth. A brief flash of light; crap, airplane incoming. Everything went black and I really thought I was dead. I was so terrified to open my eyes, that I started to cry.
Thanks for the story, I enjoyed it! I got shot in heart rescuing a girl I fell in love with.. I saw the blood on a wall and the guy still held gun to her head but I immediately woke up. But I did stop breathing twice in my sleep.. What I heard is if u die in a dream u died in real life.
Also I fall asleep in my dream sometimes twice in one story line.. I like ur post and the replies edit on by Layaly because: no reason given. I'm inclined to agree. Having said that I've been shot, stabbed, drowned and eaten by a dinosaur.
In one I didn't wake up when I died but I was a ghost. Everything was blue. It was weird. I had a dream once that I was in my elementary school. I was wearing a blue suit and tie, which i had neither. There was a casket sitting in the middle of the room. My mom leans down and tells me to look in the casket.
As I turn towards it, there is a bright light shining out of it, as I approach the light seemed to be coming from all around the casket. I stepped up on to a small platform so I could see inside.
As I looked in, my heart jumped ,it was me, in that same blue suit. I woke up instantly. I've also. I believe it's just an over active subconscious mind. Now, depending on how you look at them - I associate one with a past life, but the other a combination of a premonition I got a good feeling for when or if it happens, and as long as I don't go out West, I don't think it'll come to pass , and the other part was a "kick in the pants" type thing to change my viewpoint.
Now, then, imagine finding this person, only to have them tell you "I will always be here for you, but right now you need to go back and get her; she's confused", while indicating to "guide" another person you knew and had a crush on. I went back, and woke up - The sad part? If I would have remembered this dream more often Either way, in this sense, it simply means that transformation and change is afoot, so be prepared. Just as the death card in Tarot symbolizes rebirth and new beginnings, so can dreams about death.
After all, after an ending always comes a fresh start, right? It's common to dream about death if you're starting a new chapter in your life just as it is when you're ending a chapter , and it can be a really positive thing, so open yourself up to the flow. If you're currently overrun with anxiety in your day to day, you won't necessary just have sleepless nights — you may also see it manifest through a dream about dying.
I think everyone's biggest fear when it comes to dreams about dying are that they are some sort of prophecy or bad omen —but actually, many people think they symbolize just the opposite.
If death dreams are bringing any omens, they're going to be good ones, so enjoy the prosperity and longevity. It's so important to just do you and be your authentic self — and if you ignore that? Well, it may just manifest in some freaky death dreams. Take a look at the situations in your life and consider whether you've really been honest about your feelings about them.
Apparently, many people report the experience of dying in a dream being surprisingly That dream definitely sounds disturbing. It's an important point that while most people in the study I cited had positive experiences of their death dreams, not all did.
I wish you the best in your continued recovery. I come from country in south-eastern europe, so my mother tongue is south Slavic. Although I'm fluent in English and often dream in English, so there's nothing strange about it. Also, I speak little of the scandinavian languages and Japanese and understand some Italian because of Latin which I learned in high school. But few hours ago I had a very strange dream in which I understood boy in his late teens speaking in old Egyptian at the parking after I found two dead dogs which I bought as christmas present for my parents; they were very stiff and somehow slimey and older black woman was telling me something in Zulu and after three sentences i somehow intuitively understood what she was saying and replied with ' a zasha'.
So as I woke up, I went to google translate and put that in so I found out it was Zulu and it means 'burn up' or 'are burning'. The same happend with old Egyptian, remembered some words which he was saying as 'sheut', 'ushabtiu' and later discovered it's Egyptian. It was also really scary because they looked like they are possessed when they were speaking. And that women, before she started to speak in Zulu she had gazed deeply into my eyes and told me: 'You are going to die soon.
I see it in your eyes' and I smiled with some kind of longing and said 'I know. I have always somehow knew it. I have bright grey eyes and in my dream they looked more watery and pupil was constricted, so there was almost nothing black. They looked the same when I saw myself in the mirror when I woke up. I'm not superstitious or anything but this dream really creeped me out, especially understanding and speaking those languages and I'm trying to find some sort of explanation.
I'm in early twenties and currently have intense and sterssful period in my life and dreams like this aren't helping. Thank you for sharing that experience, xyz. Dreams are certainly a fascinating experience, and can affect and be affected by what's happening in our waking lives. One of the more frequent ones tends to be a Zombie Apocalypse dream where I am either killed by the environment like falling off of a building while trying to escape the zombies, or just taking a risk and it ending BADLY or i wake up right before getting bitten.
Why do most of these have a violent end? I find this increasingly disturbing because i usually don't remember my dreams unless it is a death dream that i wake up from with the "oh crud i'm gonna die!!!! Thank you for your comments, Caitlyn. That's very interesting. I think an important caveat to the finding that people tend to like their dreams of death is that it's probably different for nightmares, which it sounds like yours were. Those tend to be just terrifying, and waking with a start from trying to escape a violent death is certainly not pleasant.
There are many things that can lead to nightmares, and often we don't know what triggered them. But I'm guessing that's why the death dreams you've had have been negative. Thanks again.
Instead of a dream I was seeing vivid pictures of me dead, my sister was driving and my cousins and me were listening to music, she was taking her hand off the wheel to dance to the music and she was going rather fast, I kept seeing very vivid pictures of everyone in the car dead the front smashed into a tree, it was frightening.
Thanks for your comments. That does sound frightening. It sounds to me more like a feared consequence than a dream, and generally our fears of death in our waking moments are not pleasant experiences. Stay safe! Speaking only for myself, that has NOT been my experience. Not at all. My death dreams I've had about a half-dozen in my lifetime are always extremely violent and terrifying, and always result me in jerking awake, sometimes with an accompanying vocalization of some sort.
The reason I'm reading and commenting on this article right now is because I had my latest one last night. Again, absolutely terrifying, detailed, emotion-filled, etc. I'm thankful these types of dreams are very infrequent, but when I do have them, they have a profound impact on my waking life for awhile afterward.
I'll have mild PTSD for the next couple days before I begin to gradually return to normal and the details fade from my mind. It lingers in my mind as if it actually happened. Thanks for your comments, Bobby. I know, wasn't that a striking quote? Definitely not everyone's experience! Especially when the death dreams are nightmares that jolt us awake. Your comments also underscore how our dreams can affect our waking moments.
Hi, Ruth. I wanted to respond to the content of your question but first want to make sure there's an actual person behind it. It has the hallmarks of trolling negative, non-constructive, non-specific. Please let me know.
I keep dreaming that I die, but the second I die, I wake up. It is not scary. I don't wake up scared nor anxious. I just wake up, I get back to sleep quickly only to wake up hours later to another dream of dying.
It is so bizarre. Thanks for sharing your experience, Sandra. It's so interesting, isn't it, the different ways that death dreams show up? Some death dreams can definitely be upsetting, even nightmarish, but others are neutral, or even pleasant. I appreciate your leaving a comment. I had my first and only dream about dying just a few days ago. I have cancer and I am aware I will die from it someday, although I don't know when yet.
In my dream I died in an explosion. I have always had a strong internal drive to keep going when life is difficult and in my dream this was really no exception. There was the explosion and I actually thought to myself, take a breath and it will be ok, but there was no breath to take and then my thought was, oh, this must be it and it was and then I died.
It wasn't sad really, it was just the end. Now, having said all this I am aware I'm pretty depressed, but the absolute worst part is living right now. I desperately want to quit working and collect disability, but if I live longer than a year I'm s. I have no family to live with and my cat died exactly one year ago. Talk about a string of bad luck, eh? Anyway, that's my death dream. What do u think? Wow, Deborah. Thank you for sharing those things.
I'm sorry to hear you're dealing with cancer, and having to make these difficult choices about work in the face of uncertainty about how long you'll live. That's fascinating about your dream. Interesting that it was so matter-of-fact. I do hope you're finding support through this time, if not from family then with friends and perhaps a professional.
I'm sending you all best wishes, Deborah. May you find peace and experiences of ease in the midst of all the rest. I just had a second dream about being dead, and it was like my subconscious knew I was dead, but my conscious mind didn't. In both dreams, I was trying to talk to people and ended up yelling to get their attention and finally realized no one could hear me.
Then I realized that the only people who knew I was there, who could see or hear me, were relatives that had already died. In the first dream, I was at my own funeral and didn't realize it until the end of the dream. That's the strangest aspect - how could my dream itself have everything planned out to unpleasantly surprise me at the end like that?
Online interpretations said it meant you were in a transition period. It is true, because right after my dad died I serendipitously discovered my mother has narcissistic personality disorder, and I have been a hermit for over a year and am trying to get back to normal. Thanks for sharing your experience, Lisa. Very interesting. It sounds like the movie "Sixth Sense. Just this morning I dreamt I was dead or was dying, I was saying in my dream, "this is what it feels like Never had a dream like this before - it wasn't scary or fearful, wasn't meant to be that - it's Symbolic of what I've been through.
