Dream meaning: Death/Dead

Dream interpretation DeathTransformation; there is now room in the psyche for a new way of life; a need to revise your self-image; the end of one type of inner personification. When we are turly about to die, our dreams contain symbols or images other than those of our death. However, as we age, we may explore death or transition more in our dreams, meeting symbolic figures of death. Dreaming of yourself as dead reflects a wish to get out of a situation or responsibility. Often the dream ego is still alive and watching the funeral. Consider the behavior of those attending the funeral for additional clues of how you behaved and their opinions of you. Each of them is, most likely, another or wished-for, aspect of yourself. Death can also represent an attemp to repress or kill off some aspect of yourself.

Dreaming of someone’s else’s death or funeral may be a message that your feelings about that person are dead; that a significant change or loss is occurring in the relationship; a wish to complete or end or repress that aspect of yourself represented by the other; anxiety; aggression toward other. It;s not uncommon to dream of somone close to you who recently died, although frequently you will dream of him or her as still alive.

Death and rebirth is an archetypal theme, and dreams of this nature may have to do with initiation or quest; search for the spiritual in your life; growth or change; loss of power or identity;. After the symbolic death, look for symbols of escape or rebirth in the same or later dreams; Fertility or womb symbols, including caves; the season of spring; seeds; new plants; trees; dawn; water; a snake; a bird, especially one resembling the phoenix; a pearl. Intensely dramatic or emotional death dreams may occur for the addict or alcoholic not yet committed to the recovery process.

    Mine isn’t really a dream at all but maybe someone can help me with this, every time I go to a funeral and I go up to the coffin to pay my respect I don’t see that person in the coffin but someone else that is still alive. And than when that happens, in two years that person I seen in the coffin dies. And by the way I am awake when this happens I am not asleep or dreaming.

    My dream consisted of my grandma that we just buried a week ago. Me and my son went to the funeral home, and we were walking down the hall, and we finally entered the room where my grandma body was basically laid on a gurney and another body was in the casket. Very weird but this is what I saw in the dream. I looked at my grandma from a distance. I remember her basically looking back at me and me and my son left out of that room quickly. I remember us walking fast down the hall to exit the funeral home when I found money on the floor. I picked it up and my son tried to slip it in his pocket. I snatched it back from him and I began to talk in a disgusted tone with him, and I told him that I was going to disipline him for being bad. And then I jumped up out of my dream it was very weird..

    I have dreamt numerous times bout people dying. My real father was in his coffin and showed me the #25, couple days later he died in real life, I was 25 yrs old when this happened. Dreamt my grandmother in her coffin, it felt so real. I told my mom about it. She said it means she will live a long life.
    Yeah? Guess what? In my dream she wore her favorite blue dress. Within a few days in real life, my mother booked airline tickets to Poland, why? Because my grandmother died. They buried her in her favorite blue dress.
    The girl I will use a different name…(Sandra)
    Introduced me to my now husband in 2008, she actually hired me at a local bar where I live. We got along right away. Like sisters. People actually thought we were…
    2011, she got sick in May. Ended up in hospital….she got better..in July I had a dream she died, she showed me a football and she was in her coffin…once again it felt so real! I told my fiancé “I had a dream she died”…. He told me that day hospice came. July 6, 2011, I lost my friend. When we went to pay our respects, she was wearing her favorite football jersey in her coffin, this was real life. She was 33 yrs old. Sad part was that I told her if this guy is a nut it’s her fault, if it works, she will be my maid of honor. We married 7/12/2013. I know she was there, I felt her. I can go on and on. I used to tell her bout my dreams, she said “if you dream of me, do not tell me”!
    Dreams can be looked up in a book. Everyone who dreams, it means something different for them. When I dream? It becomes reality. This is something I cannot control.
    I’ve also had visions about things….example, I was at work and saw myself getting moved into a different department. My phone rang and it was the big big boss with a manager from different division of the company. I told them what I saw moments before she called me. Both jaws hit the floor. They asked if I will accept the move/promotion…I did

    You can interpret your own dreams without a book. You can. Not one dream I looked up in any book came close to what I experienced.

    one day i was lying down on my back and on my couch about 2pm. then i suddenly fell a sleep and the minute after i fell asleep i entered a dream where i was in my house, the same house i fell asleep in and i could see everything very clearly, so i went up and was entering the hall to go to my room and as i steped in the hall i looked across where my sisters room is and i saw that the door was shut and around the door meaning the areas that light can pass through, all i saw was this bright bright blue light, so i did what i would have done in real life if i were to see sum like this. i ran to the back door hustling to turn the keys so i could get out. and as i turn the key and the door was open i tried to run outside but something was pulling my shirt preventing me to go out. and when i looked back at it all i can see is just my shirt be pulled on. pulling me back to the direction of my cough where i fell a sleep on, but i was so frightened and scared for my life that i kept running till what ever was holding me had to let go and i bolted into my neighbours yard where i saw my neighbour and was shouting her name and running in circles in my yard but it was like i didnt exist and she couldnt see me. so i jumped my fence and when i jumped my fence i could remember scraping my foot as i hop over. and then thts where i could remember it ending.
    the next thing i know. upon waking up
    the same spot that had been scraped hoping the fence, i woke up and saw a long mark on that same spot looking similar to a a fence mark and i had no idea where this could come from since i didnt leave home for the day. so it was like my spirit was actually roaming
    that day, everything just felt so real

  • Tyf // Jun 7, 2014 at 11:54 am

    I dreamed about meeting a girl named Katie x and she had cancer. I’ve never met her before. We had a little conversation while we were working at a retail store. After that we all left for during lunch break. After that I came back and asked where she was and they told me that she had recently died of cancer. I left the store before I felt like I couldn’t breathe. Then I remember seeing images of her and her boyfriend. They looked so happy in the photos. I then saw a video of them just spending their time all happy. Later I saw her boyfriend shaving his hair. Then I woke up with my right eye with tears. I looked up “Katie x” and saw that there was a woman that also died or cancer. This dream happened after I had donated to a cancer charity and got a random call of a type of cancer charity company. But this was actually my favorite dream that I’ve had my whole life. I was happy that I got to meet the girl in my dream even if it was for a little while.

  • Elmare // Mar 15, 2014 at 11:32 pm

    I dreamt that it was my funeral everything was arranged and all my friends and family were coming. But the strange part is that I was still alive and was waiting to die but it hadnt happened and it was said that it will be the next day. So the next day came, and I was doing washing and talking to everybody and in the end of my dream I was crying and the one person is like why is she crying again. Please explain to me what this means.

  • AMBake // Jan 8, 2014 at 9:42 am

    I cannot find any interpretation of my dream. I dreamt I was on a forum I usually visit daily and noticed it had been 2 weeks since I visited it. I wasn’t able to reply to discussions nor read anything. I saw a poster I know post a thread stating I was had a terrible accident.

    I then walked around my home, which didn’t look like my home, trying to find my husband. The house was very dimly lit. I found him and he was super skinny with totally gray hair and looked sad. I asked him what was wrong and what was going on. He looked through me not saying a word.

    I started screaming at him and said can’t you hear me? He finally replied yes. He could only hear me when I screamed. He started crying and said it was all his fault, that when we ironically met at the same intersection and waved me to go through, he didn’t see the truck coming. I cried out am I dead and he said yes.

    I ran downstairs and tried to turn on lights but I couldn’t. I could tell the basement looked different but couldn’t see. He opened a closet, pulled open a drawer to a chest and the light was on and I could clearly see my old yearbooks and other various items of mine. I told him I didn’t want to see those things. I yelled, crying, we were suppose to grow old together and this is wrong. He was sobbing and said he was so sorry.

    What does it mean to die in a dream, not know you are dead and such low, scary lighting? I’m pretty freaked out.

    Reoccurring Dream

    Our whole town is kind of taken over by these people who own us. It started with playing a board game with some friends in which we had to finish or else we would die. We tried to escape these people but they always tracked us down. My brother had no idea whats was going on so i tried to write a quick letter to to tell him and to save me. It never got to him because they kept catching me when I tried to give it to him. All I knew it was just about our turn to go(to be murdered) as a group of guys walk by on their way to go. My brother was in this group and we tried to hug and say our goodbyes but the guards wouldn’t let us get too close. The look in my brothers eyes I will never forget dreaming or awake. I Woke up slowly and sobbing.

  • Keri // Jul 22, 2012 at 3:48 am

    My prom date died a couple yrs ago but he always pops up in my dreams. Recently I dreamt that he and I were together and I had lost a baby. In the dream we weren’t trying to get pregnant but I was 3 months pregnant and had just found out. He stuck with me when we had to tell our parents. It was like a comforting dream, although it was very life like. What does this dream mean?

  • Patience // May 27, 2012 at 4:34 pm

    I had just had the same dream for the last three nights it was so disturbing. I was after all dreaming about my dead mother who actually died of a bad heart, but in my dream she killed herself. It was so scary. After all she has been gone for ten years.

  • Feeso // May 2, 2012 at 4:41 am

    It is said that dreaming of water/pond/river is a sign of badluck or that someone you know is going to pass away. One night I had a dream, I was in the middle of a very big dam sorrounded by very big waves and there was a dragon snake that eats people’s brains in that river. a few weeks after havin dat dream, a famly mamber died.and I once dreamt of something that turned into a real thing. It was like a revilation, dat made me belive that humans do have souls and that a future is like a recorded tape, its already there, any1 who has the power/gift can see it. if man can see what hasn’t happend, that means a future cannot be changed.

  • richard // Apr 4, 2012 at 12:13 pm

    I was at a funeral - don’t know whose. The next day someone told me they had seen that person walking down the street and I told them that was impossible. Then my uncle who is also dead walked up to me and told me they won’t let the guy rest in peace. So I went to the cemetery and found these evil people (warlocks or some kind of sect) pulling the spirits out of graves.

    Then my grandmother shows up and tells me to stop them. I reply I don’t want anything to do with it. Then she tells me I’m the only one that’s strong enough to fight them. So I agree and when I go and confront these people I recognize them and they ask me to join them. I start to argue with them and I see demons and spirits all around me as if they are watching what will happen.

    My other uncle shows up (also dead) and tells me that only I can get rid of the evil people. Then I’m in some kind of robe and we start exchanging words with evil. Then I wake up …….. really can’t interpret this one. Its so vivid. I’ve had it a few times now.

  • za // Mar 2, 2012 at 2:35 pm

    I had a dream started fine, but then I got told I needed 2 go and see a spiritualist which I did. She started mentioning things that only my granddad would say (he passed 18yrs ago.) Then she did a bizarre drawing with lots of symbols on the wall. Then it turned into a list describing my wedding plans.

    The last image that I then got before waking was of my wedding dress (which I’ve chosen 2 get married in nxt yr) It was laid out on top of a coffin with me crouched beside it crying my heart out. And the name on the coffin was my partner’s on our wedding day.
    This has really frightened me

  • m // Feb 6, 2012 at 10:15 am

    I have this dream where i am at a funeral home with my friends, people from my area and family!! When we entered the funeral home we had to go out the back to get to the house where the lay out was on. As we were walking through, everyone was saying things like, “She was so young, and they were really in love and only starting there lives” (!!) I turned to my mother to ask who are they talking about and a got no reply!! So I carried on walking to the back of the funeral home and down the steep streets when I fell against the cars that carry the coffins. There was a woman in a wedding dress. Her husband in his suit and and two young girls in bridesmaids dresses in the car.. Then all of a sudden it went back to when I asked my mam who was it and she still ignored me. I fell down the steps again against the car again only to find it is me in the dress!! But the man in the suit is not my boyfriend and I dont have kids!! I had this dress for a week - just wish I knew what it meant!!

  • Charmayne // Jun 8, 2011 at 9:40 pm

    I dreamt that I was in an unfamiliar area that appeared to be some type of industrial business area. The buildings were mainly white in color. A small pond (which was out of place) was in the area, and people where swimming. This one lady was on the phone calling 911. She was looking in a particular direction, and I followed her gaze. Then I saw what she was looking at. It was a man with a white t-shirt and blue jeans sinking in the water about 10 feet away from her. I did not know him. She did not look panicked but concerned, and she did not tell anyone else. She allowed everyone to continue swimming. As I looked closer at the man I noticed a bunch of sneakers. I looked closer and saw that it was not just sneakers, but a bunch of dead people. I started running towards the industrial buildings to get help, but there was no one around except the people swimming in the water. The water was kind of murky. I was thinking that I definitely would not be swimming in it. Then I then woke up.

  • Nana // May 5, 2011 at 6:07 pm

    Okayy, well lets see how I can explain this. I have a couple of friends from out of town and I go visit them at football games and stuff like that. Well two of my friends from out of town are named Paul, and the other Jacob.

    Okayy well in my town I have, well had, this friend named Jacob as well and he recently died a couple months ago.

    Okayy well in my dream I went to Sinton (the out of town) and I was gonna go meet up with Paul and Jacob and I saw Paul but when I turned I saw Jacob (my dead friend) and I went up to him and it felt as if it was really him. He had the little scar on his face and the sweetness in his eyes and it just caught me by surprise because I don’t know why I dreamed of that Jacob instead of the other one.


  • V // Feb 17, 2011 at 10:08 pm

    I dreamed that I had a small bird, maybe the size of my hand. Every time the bird was left alone, it would turn black and lay down on its side and die. Frightened, I would reach out and touch it, and I would realize that it had just been sleeping. When it felt my touch, it would wake up and climb onto my hand. It would turn a brilliant white, with tiny red and green feathers on its head.

    I immediately felt awful that I only had a tiny cage for it, because I had no way of procuring a larger one. But I also realized that every time I put it back in its cage, or let go of it, it would die again. I realized I would have to hold on to it forever, and that I wouldn’t be able to do the things for myself I’d wanted to do, but I was somehow completely okay with that.

    What could this possibly mean? Any opinions would be greatly appreciated.

  • Jessica // Feb 15, 2011 at 3:11 pm

    I had a really Crazy Dream the other night…OK I was standing around in a
    park. I seemed happy Then I see my mom. She looks worried and she asks me were
    is Dominic (my Brother.) I say I don’t know. She then tells me we need to find
    him because she heard one of his friends saying my brother owed him money. So I
    then start panicking and start helping her look for my brother. I followed her
    to an area that had a big hole the size of a big swimming pool that was filled
    with water but the water had ice chunks in it, so it was hard to see inside. We
    look around but no one was there.

    Then my mom jumps in because she says, no he was here, he has to be here. When
    she jumps in she yells “He’s here!” I see her pull him up to the surface and I
    see him. I start screaming and help pull him out. I start CPR on him, but all I
    can feel is the coldness of his body and I yell, “Someone help! Please
    help!”. Still doing CPR but I know he is DEAD …

    Next I m at his memorial and I see all his Friends and I tell them, “You did
    this. You guys killed him. I’m going to Kill all of you!” I was so ANGRY, I
    started fighting.

    Then I wake up out of it but I’m crying so much. I go straight to the phone and
    called my mom to see if he was OK and yes he was in his room. BUT it felt so
    real, I was so hurt …

  • Josie // Feb 12, 2011 at 12:01 pm

    I dreamt last night about my brother and my cousin. They visited Las Vegas and were sitting at an intersection waiting for the light to change. Then out of nowhere a delivery truck deliberately crashed into them. My cousin lived but my brother died. He came to me as a ghost several days after his body came home for the funeral. We started talking because I was the only one who could hear him. He then actually spoke to me and my mother was beside me. I held her as we started to cry. I told him I missed him and he said he missed us, too. I said I was sorry for all the fights we had and he even tried hugging me, but I felt nothing. The guy who killed him then for some reason came to my house. I hit him with my car then brutally stabbed him, repeating “Why!? WHY!? What did we ever do to you!? Why did you have to ruin a perfectly good family!?!? I HOPE YOU BURN IN HELL!!!!!!!” I sat there crying looking at the bloody corpse with my mom holding me close trying to comfort me. I wished so deeply that my brother would drive home any second, but I knew it wasn’t going to happen. Right now I keep looking out the kitchen window waiting for my brother to come home safely. When I woke up I was crying. I went to look in my brothers room to see if he was there. My heart stopped for a moment, then I sighed a sigh of relief when I saw him sleeping on the corner sofa with my cousin. Lately dreams I have have been coming true. I dreamt my friend wasn’t in school and she wasn’t. I dreamt someone in my band class broke her leg and she did. I’m really scared that my brother might actually die. Even now as I write this I’m crying. The dream felt so real. I actually heard him talking to me and saying I missed him and he missed me broke my heart. I’m scared and don’t know what to do.

  • Sian // Feb 5, 2011 at 4:25 am

    I dreamed I was in my bed but I was in some sort of hospital. And a weird figure came and turned all of my life-support machines off. I felt every bit of pain and dying slowly on my bed. My family came to see me, to find me stiff as a board, with blue lips. Then I became a ghost hero, searching for my killer. But when I woke up it felt pretty real to me.

  • K // Feb 1, 2011 at 3:13 pm

    I dreamed of an old lover who, in real life, moved back to Europe couple of years ago. In the dream he came to visit me at an outdoor wedding (of someone else). I was so happy to see him again. In real life, I am currently in a happy relationship, but all I wanted to do was kiss him in the dream. And I did kiss him, and in my dream it felt so good and reassuring. I emotionally felt so close to him again… I actually missed him when I woke up.
    However, towards the end of the dream, it turned out that he had been carrying a briefcase with a gun in it, and he tried to hunt me down to kill me. I survived, and he ended up killed.

  • Mickie // Dec 23, 2010 at 3:30 pm

    OK, so I’m a pretty sensitive person and I was in the process of moving out of my house into my new boyfriend’s house (whon I’ve been dating for about nine months.) We work together and have been friends for years. We started our relationship after I broke up with my ex-fiance - not for this guy, but for other reasons. Well, I had a dream I was at my old house moving out and I looked down on my patio and there was my ex boyfriend smoking a cigarette and thinking some nasty thoughts. Well, I just kept watching him and he ended up walking up on to my patio and looked into my house. He couldn’t see me but I could see him. I was watching him and he loaded a gun, and started shooting into my house. I have my concealed handgun license and I shoot regularly. I was going to wait till he fired all his bullets so I would be sure I would be safe. Well, he ended up shooting me in the arm, and it just grazed me. I was counting the bullets and when the fourteenth one was shot I started to walk out to go shoot him. I saw him load another clip into his gun - another fourteen rounds. I knew I wouldn’t last so I lured him over to my bedroom. I was still inside and he was still outside. When I saw he was coming to the other side of the house I ran the opposite direction and ran upstairs. When I looked back he was just pointing his gun upstairs and just shooting. When the last bullet was shot, I ran back downstairs and shot out my window and shot him in the head and he died in front of me, with his eyes closed. It was so intense and then the next day I actually saw him.

    Jan 2007 I had a dream I was in a house watching video and I felt this huge wave of sadness come over and while I watching the video I realize I was never going to see my mother again and that she died. When I woke up the next morning I called my mom and was your still alive right? She laughed at me and said yes why? I told her about the dream and she reassured me it was okay that she had to dreamed her mother died too when she was younger and it was no big deal. So I brushed it off. Three months later in march 2007 my mother was diagnosed with Stage 4 pancreatic cancer and died a less then a year from being diagnosed in jan 2008 ….

    I had a dream about someone who died. The thing is…I have never met them, or didn’t even know them…Then when I was telling my friend about this dream, she asked me to describe what the person, who was a guy, looked like. Well I described him and she said, “That’s what my cousin John used to look like. ” Later on I found out that he committed suicide and my friend was very close to him…. I really don’t know why I had a dream about him, and it sort of freaks me out… Is anyone having dreams like this?

    I had this dream where my brother kept on chasing me and trying to kill me with a gun. I could never get away and every time he killed me it was a point blank gunshot to the face. Then it would start all over again with him doing the same thing over and over. I must have died at least 7 times.

    I dreamt I was trying to survive a green cobra snake that was in my backyard. I jumped up to elevate myself from ground contact and found a long wooden stick to protect myself. When it was coming near, i managed to stab the wooden stick into the cobra’s eyes so that way it couldn’t find me. Later in my dream I started to cry because I thought that I had murdered my boyfriend who I thought was the cobra. But I didn’t realize that the cobra was him in disguise until it was too late.

    Does this mean that my boyfriend is poison to my soul, I wonder? My own interpretation would be that the green cobra snake is a representation of my boyfriend. That I need to ward off. Could this be true?

    I had a dream that I was sleeping and woke up in the middle of my sleep with my sister saying (while crying) you’re gonna die in your sleep. your gonna have a heart attack while you’re sleeping. I didn’t answer her, I just wish she never had told me. I was forcing myself to stay awake, while still laying in bed. but couldn’t resist any longer, and went to sleep…

    I never finished the dream. I woke up to the sound of a ringing telephone.

    I dreamed i met a beautiful lady. She was Death. I held and kissed her. As she was kissing i noticed her face changed to blue and I thought to myself: isn’t the hindu god indra blue? Then a headless man in tuxedo came. He was her husband. He sprayed something at me but i spat at him and the spray had no effect. He then sprayed at another man. An old man sitting on a desk. The old man drooped and the headless guy walked out the door. And we kept kissing. when Lady Death entered my room, which was dark i was warned to look under the door for shadows. I saw shadows of the secret lantern. When the door opened it was Lady Death.

    I have this recurring dream that I’m dying or someone or something will get or kill me. that I have an unfinished assignment which will cause me not to go to heaven. I have even been dreaming of my baby being taken from me and that I failed to do something for her that she will not go to heaven too. It feels really weird that I always beg for my life in those dreams and to spare me for my baby.

  • brooke // Apr 7, 2010 at 7:13 pm

    I had a dream that my aunt had met with the “Shadow of Death” and it had grabbed her, being very rough. Then it brought her to me and it took me as well as my aunt. I woke up right after. Since this dream I am scared to even go to sleep now.

    A while ago I had a dream where I flew into a cemetery at night. I was jumping over tombstones like a cat. I sunk into the mud between the tombstones and felt comfort. I was wearing a clean white dress that was glowing. Afterwards, I went to a restaurant to order french fries. My hands were still dirty from the graveyard, and the server put the fries directly into my hands.

    In my dream I woke up, in a bridal gown, on the grass next to my great grand parents grave. I am named after my great grand father. For some strange reason I started to pray in a Catholic style (with a rosary that came out of no where) to him. The next thing I knew I was getting married outside, next to their grave.

    My mother is dreaming about my sister (her daughter) who died 3 yrs ago. In this dream my sister is crying and it has really upset her. Normally she dreams of her laughing or doing something else but never crying….what does this mean

  • miko // Sep 7, 2009 at 5:03 am

    I always dream I’m at a funeral and the person in the casket gets up and everybody is running including me, but they always seem to single me out chasing me through the whole damn dream.

    I dreamed that my dad died and I just kept crying and crying really bad, then I woke up. it was looong - it seemed like I cried the whole time…it felt so real.

  • J Diaz // May 11, 2009 at 11:10 am

    I had a dream where my dad was killed. It wasn’t even in our current city, but in Nogales, Mexico (my birthtown). Noone would tell me as I was arriving to the funeral. I started to laugh as a means to diminish the thought that I knew something had happened. My mom called me inside and broke the news that my dad had been poisoned with gas while being locked in a garage. I started to cry in a way that I have never seen or heard myself cry. My dad somehow reappears at the end of this scene. I hug him like I never have and more tears come out. All the while, I know it’s just an image of him in my mind…not real.

    At the end of the dream, death somehow turns to me. I am gunned down and trying to keep myself hidden from a group of uniformed men. Then I wake up.

    The interpretation this site offers is ackwardaly correct. I am in a transition phase of my life where I am trying to gain redemption from my actions thus far. I have had troubles with bad company where I am now in a junction. Now I ask myself…take the correct road or continue living the way I have. Of course the correct road.

    In my dream I was at the funeral home. I wasn’t sure whose funeral at first until I had to take one last look at the body. I saw my best friend in the coffin. I was looking at him for the longest time. Then we took him to the cemetery. I saw his tombstone, but didn’t see any year numbers. I just saw his name. I was then in a car crying with my teacher. When I woke up, I was literally crying. Then I woke up, but after I fell asleep the dream continued. I was still at the cemetery after everyone left. After that I woke up. I don’t know what that means. I haven’t talked to my best friend since that dream.

  • amber // Oct 28, 2008 at 11:58 am

    i think that it has to do with the “death” of their relationship and the “birth” of a new life. but i have also been told that it usually means that one or the other is going to pass.

  • amber // Oct 28, 2008 at 11:57 am

  • leslie // Aug 25, 2008 at 6:35 am

    I dreamt that i just got a new apartment and i woke up in the middle of the night and there was a very large dead bird lying in the room near my bed. I kept leaving my bedroom through a window and everytime I came back the dead bird moved a little bit. Finally at the end of the dream I went to get my brother to remove the bird from my room, but when we got back to my room the bird was gone.

    I had a dream that I lived in medival times. In that dream I found out that I died from cancer when I was about 8 years old. My mother hid my corpse and did some black magic (or something) and kept my soul so that I could be reborn. So I was born again amout 5 years later. My mother was very protective of me. She didn’t want me to know what had happened to me. But Long after I passed my 8th birthday (when I was already an adult) my mother finally told me all about it and showed me my corpse. I was terrified and confused in that dream, but I did recognize myself in that corpse…

  • Marina // Dec 28, 2007 at 5:00 pm

    I dreamt I was waiting for death…I knew I was going to die and I was waiting….I was not frightened but kind of accepting… i was praying just like Jesus asking God to let this cup pass from me but if It is your will then so be it…However I was in my childhood home and when i saw the Hearse pulling out from a neighbor’s house and the driver of the hearse looking directly at me…I knew he was coming for me and I got frightened and started to pray feverishly asking God to please not let this happen to me now
