Dreaming of Death
Dreaming of Death Dreams, interpreting your bad dreams, learn what they mean!  Find out now FREE!

I dreamt I was dead, lying in a coffin at a funeral home. Everyone stood around me, crying. What is the meaning of dreams about death?


Dreaming of death is one of the most common of all dreams. These dreams very rarely signify death, but merely heralding change. It represents an ending of one phase of your life so a new one can begin. It can represent forth coming finalities, such as an end of a marriage or career. It also means a beginning of a new life.


Dreaming of death can merely be symbolic. Unless, it happens to be of a prophetic nature then that's an entirely different meaning. We act as our own analyst when dreaming of such a subject. We, as the dreamer, have to dig deep and go down the list of subconscious fears, changes, and turbulences in our lives to be able to decipher a death dream.


Psychologically, these death dreams mean different aspects of our lives. For example, if the dead person is someone you know, consider the part of yourself that person represents. If your mother dies and you have a motherly nature, then the nurturing side of your personality could be dying. Is your dream supplying you with needed information about your lack of care and comfort within yourself and others? Or do you secretly want to be independent of a smothering overbearing relationship with your Mom?

We, as humans, have two contending drives in life—living and dying. When we embark on a new chapter in our life, change can be overbearing and make us feel as though we can't cope. Thus, we dream of death. It acts as a safety valve for all the internal pressure we feel in our waking hours. Dreams keep us sane. Although a typical death dream is disturbing, when we closely sort through the changes in our life and possible hidden resentments, then the death dream makes sense.


Dreams of death lay to rest the past and usher in the future. These dreams reflect a natural progression to the next step in our lives. They signal a rite to passage, and not the scary harbinger of death. When we outgrow our actions, relationships with others, and look into hidden feelings within ourselves and others, then the dream of death will lose its grip of terror that holds us bondage to stagnation. 


When you dream of your death or someone else’s, the message is clear. What change is needed in my life to make me a happier person? Mystically speaking, some dreams of death are of a prophetic nature. Communicating with the deceased has been accurately reported as well. I don't deny these occurrences as I've had these dreams myself. The dream of death can forewarn of things to come. The dreamer has no control over these precognitive and psychic experiences when sleeping. Why does it happen? No one really knows.


Overall, the meaning of a death dream is a useful message. Don't be afraid of dreams. Embrace them, they lead us in the right direction and keep us on course, and act as a forecast of what is needed in our lives for change.

Hi...I recently had a dream that my father had died. I remember getting a phone call from an unknown number and when I called it back it was my uncle. He was crying and told me that my father was dead. I then started crying. I really just want to know what this dream means. I woke up and was crying but could it just be that something good will come for my dad??

I had a dream that I died about 4-5 months ago. The dream was vivid with my wife over the coffin crying and sobbing. I could not see who was in the coffin but I thought it was me. Ten weeks ago our son died and the dream I had of someone dead and my wife crying and sobbing came true. Was this a premonition?

So this article was bumped to the top of the page just so somebody could show off a new text ad? And here I was thinking that there was a new update.

Last night I dreamt that my husband and I was staying in a very tall appartment complex. When we were in the bedroom together he told me he was going to kill himself. He said it would be better for me and the kids if he were dead. He shot himself in the head without any hesitation. I cried hysterically, went down into the loby of the appartment complex (which was a casino) to wait for the cops to arrive. What does this mean?

I have had dreams where I was dead but I haven't had them in years. Now when I dream of death, it is usually the death of a family member. I have had a couple of dreams where my father died and I would be wailing and weeping seriously in the dream. Its always a relief to wake up from those dreams to find my dad still alive.

Aries, that interpretation makes complete sense to me. I remember as a kid I used to have dreams where I get shot. I never knew what they meant. I was very timid in school and used to be teased a lot. I guess that was why I used to have those dreams.... I always got unexpected abuse from friends at school.

@Dartz: Getting shot means that you'll be getting unexpected abuse from friends. I can also mean that you're not ashamed of something that you should be ashamed of, or not proud of something you should be proud of.

Gah... every other time I dream, some guy gets in my face, yells profanity, and shoots me dead, and I wake up and find myself sitting bolt upright and sweating.
