Dreaming Death

So this topic was brought up recently at my work so I decided to share. (Miriam, I hope you read this one, hehe!).

I die in my dreams. Always...always, always, always, always, always!  Okay, okay, fine, not actually ALWAYS, but on the rare occasions when I do remember my dreams, most of the time it's a somewhat stressful, intense, or dramatic situation, and I would say nine times out of ten I end up dead at the end of them. 

Not only that, but for most people if they die in their dreams, there's no actual confirmed death, most people wake up just as it's about to happen. I, on the other hand, don't get the luxury of waking up right away. I'll hit the ground after falling off a cliff, or bleed out if I've been stabbed, or lie lifeless after being suffocated. It's strange. Basically, as soon as I die in the dream, then it's like I have this third person perspective and I start watching from above. I see that my limbs are broken, or I've bled out, and usually nothing more happens in the dream, other than just sitting their watching myself no longer living. Every once in a while I'll see a little more (i.e. I'll witness other people's reactions to finding me dead), but most of the time, it's just this motionless witnessing of myself being dead.

How morbid, I know.

I've had these kinds of dreams since I was a kid, and it's honestly never really bothered me too much, but any time I tell someone else, they usually seem utterly horrified (yes you, Miriam!). Should I be more bothered by what my subconsious has in store for me. Maybe I should be reading in to this more and taking a message away from it all, but honestly, I've just come to live with it. I wonder if I would become a different person if I were to take the time and analyze where this stems from.

If any of you out there are dream experts I'd love to hear your take on it.



  1. Yes, I am shocked by it! Haha, thanks for mentioning me here :-)
    I googled "Dreams about dying", and found this website: http://psychiclibrary.com/beyondBooks/death-and-dying-dreams
    It says it can represent negative or positive events (how helpful); it can be a good omen that can bring longevity and prosperity; it could mean that you are stressed out about something. All very vague, but take a look!

  2. Thanks for the link, Miriam! I'll have to check it out :)
