Dreaming about the death of a friend or relative can be one of the most frightening dreams you can have, especially if the person dying is someone you love. Most people wonder if such dreams may actually forecast death, and a frequent occurrence of such dreams may seriously disturb the sleeping cycle and may lead to insomnia.
If you have recently had the unpleasant experience of someone dying, find out what your dream means.
What does it mean when you dream that someone is dying?
Did it happen to you that you woke up with your heart beating fast because of a dream in which someone you love died? Although it is an emotionally devastating experience, this dream is a very common one, and almost everyone has it at least once in their life. A dream about death gives you a gloomy feeling that may follow you all day long, and you may even think that it can be a premonition about what will happen in the future. However, dream experts claim that death in a dream has nothing to do with an imminent death in real life; instead, death is almost always a symbol of change. After all, for something new to be born, the old must “die”, right?
What does it mean when you dream that your spouse or partner is dying?
The most striking dreams are those in which a close person dies. When you try to process such a dream, you should ask yourself each time, “What does that person mean to me?” The answer to this question is the key to interpreting such morbid dreams. For example, if you dream that your spouse or partner is dying, it is very likely that your subconscious is trying to tell you that your relationship is breaking down, and what he or she represents for you, that is, love, is undergoing a major change.
What does it mean when you dream about your parents dying?
Some people dream of their parents dying, although they are still alive and healthy in real life. Again, it may be very difficult to cope with the emotional impact of such a dream. However, the dream should not give you any reasons to worry: it simply points to the fact shows that YOU yourself have changed. Dying parents are either a symbol of a new, more independent status, or substantial changes in your relationship with your parents because of your new circumstances (either better or worse compared to the former ones).
What does it mean when you dream that your child is dying?
When you dream that a child is dying, it means that it’s time for you to get rid of immaturity and become more responsible. It is even more difficult to cope with dreams in which our own children die, although such dreams only show that a child is ready to change and start on the path of self-discovery. Many parents may feel helpless as their children grow up, become more independent and want more freedom, and this feeling is reflected in a dream in which a child dies.
What does it mean when you dream that a person who has died is reburied?
The dream in which someone dies may have many other variations. For example, you may dream that a person who died long ago is buried again. This dream may indicate that this person, very dear to you, died without you having the chance to say goodbye to him. It is also possible that there was an unresolved problem between you and that person, or you wanted to tell them something or show your true feelings before they died. The dream may show that you wish you had more time to bring closure to a situation, at least emotionally.
What does it mean when you dream that someone is staging their death?
If you dream that someone is staging their death, it means that you have learned something new about that person. It is possible that you have just realized that they are not the person you imagined they are. If you are the very person who stages their own death, it means that you are looking for a new beginning and a new chance.
What does it mean when you dream that someone unknown is dying?
Because the emotional impact is not as strong as in the case of a loved one dying in a dream, it means that you feel detached from the changes that are happening around you. It is possible that your subconscious signals a state of apathy that becomes more and more pronounced.
When someone dies in a dream, your subconscious is trying to reveal something about you, and not about people around you, may it be an emotional change, a change in daily life, or even a physiological change.
Now that you know what it means when you dream that someone is dying and you don’t need to worry anymore about actual death, you can take the opportunity to analyze your feelings and learn from your dreams.
