What do dreams about death mean?

  • Dreaming of death or dying may symbolize a phase in your life has come to an end and something new is beginning.
  • May represent an aspect of yourself that has died, so something new can emerge.
  • May symbolize overcoming a bad habit or behavior.
  • May represent the end of a relationship.
  • Since the people in your dreams often depict different aspects of yourself, then the person you see dead or dying is important to deciphering the dream. What does this person represent to you? For instance, a child dying can symbolize you are maturing in some way and leaving a childish aspect of yourself behind.

              I believe this to be true as I went through a month where I always had dreams that didn't make sense but it was my death. One I was in darkness a gun fired and then hit my head on a rock dead. then the other I died through being pulled to pieces by a strange creature. but not long after I realised I had changed and also my relationship came to an end and now I c those dreams as a new beginning maturing and leaving the past behind

                        I can't say I saw death as in someone was dying in my dream. I had an apparition chase and terrify me by means of chasing me from around corners and behind objects. The apparition was a foot from my face when I woke up screaming..... it had terrified me to no end. What does this mean?

                              I was in a war. Im holding a gun. Im hiding at the back of a big rock. And suddenly someone shoot me. So i died. Then after i can see my family that they're in sorrow. I can talk to them and they see me as a soul. I even ask my boss to keep my phone bcoz i just bought it (my own money). I said "i'll be back. Even i dont know when.. but i'll be back. Do you know reincarnation? I think i will be back but in different human. Just keep my phone (im a big fan of bts and theres a lot of pic & video of them on my phone & i want see it when im back)". After that i talked to my mom. She's so terrified. She really loves me. She keep crying. I said.. "Mom.. im really sorry for my mistakes and also for the promise that i can't do anymore. And im so thankful to have you."

                                                            I dream today about a person whom I had crush and is just an online friend and now so much distant - my dream was "after knowing he is missing and I went for searching him to his place, from bus some body telling he is dead and about him that he is married two years before and separated from his wife". but in actual he is not married and still waiting for his ex lover to come back, so. I just left him, still have friendship

For example, sometimes when you hear a story about someone died in a car accident your subconscious create an idea of fear from cars and vehicles. Then, there is a high potential that you would see dreams about cars, vehicles and accidents.

What does this mean she is obviously frightened and she woken straight away to make sure I was okay.

However after the first year of my fiance passing i never had dreams like that again. This year will be 3 years since he passed away.
