Death Dreams

Table of Contents

Dreaming of death can be a bitter sweet feeling because you know the person is still alive, but does this mean you are predicting their death?

Dreams and the symbols in them are often metaphorically coded that never really mean what it says. Death in dreams can be seen as a positive symbol suggesting a total transformation within the person. I know from personal experience I have seen myself laying in a coffin or finding out my brother died. This was decades ago and they are still around. When people we love close to us really die, our dreams will show different symbols.

You can look at death dreams similar to major transitions or stages in our lives. For example, a teenager going through puberty and becoming an adult or leaving your country to start a life somewhere else. Death of the old is now taking place… Do you know where?

 Dreaming of the death of yourself

Death in our dreams wants the dreamer to explore endings, transformations, or changes that occur in our or others lives. Here are a few examples:

  1. Ending a relationship: The end of a romantic relationship can feel like a kind of death. It can be painful to let go of someone we care about deeply and adjust to life without them.
  2. Letting go of an identity: Sometimes, we may need to let go of an aspect of our identity that no longer serves us. For example, someone who has always identified as a “perfectionist” may need to “die” to that part of themselves in order to cultivate a more balanced and self-compassionate way of living.
  3. Career changes: Switching careers can also feel like a death, as we let go of the familiar and step into the unknown. It can be challenging to adjust to a new work environment and find our footing in a new role.
  4. Changes in physical health: Dealing with a chronic illness or disability can also feel like a kind of death. We may need to grieve the loss of the abilities we once had and adjust to a new way of living.

What happens if you dream of death of someone else?

Does the same application apply to you dreaming of someone else dying? I know from personal experience when I left my home country, I had two friends who dreamt I died within two days apart. I understood looking back that the old me died. I was going to be a new person and no longer hang out with them. But what is also intriguing is the fact our other friend died as well. Could it be that the unconscious used myself as the person who died?

We cannot rule out any option but if you are dreaming of someone else who died might suggest they are going through a major change or transition.

Dreaming of someone dying who is still alive?

Sometimes we dream of someone dying who is still alive because they are undergoing a major change. But because they are dying it means the haven’t fully transitioned into the new person. For example, someone who has always identified as a “perfectionist” may need to “die” to that part of themselves in order to cultivate a more balanced and self-compassionate way of living.

Is it good luck to dream of someone dying?

In many cultures and belief systems, dreaming of someone dying is often considered to be a negative or ominous symbol. But in our dreams dying can be considered a good luck omen. But this would be if the change will benefit the person.

What does it mean to dream of a death of a child?

Dreaming of a death of a child might be related to your own inner child that has died off. Our “inner child” refers to a concept in psychology that represents the childlike aspects of our personality, emotions, and behavior that we carry with us into adulthood. In our dreams the death of a child can be a positive symbol that heals the trauma in your past that once lived within you.  When it dies you can grow as a more mature individual.

What is the biblical meaning of death in dreams?

In the Old Testament, death is often portrayed as a natural part of the human experience and a consequence of sin. Dreams about death can be seen as a warning to repent of one’s sins and turn towards God. But this can be interpreted by the death of the old version of you only for the new to be reborn.

In the New Testament, death is often associated with the concept of eternal life and the promise of salvation through faith in Jesus Christ. Dreams about death can be interpreted as a reminder of the importance of living a life of faith and following God’s commandments.
