I dreamed that I was dead and
everyone was stood around me crying. I woke with a feeling
of abject horror. Is this dream a prediction of my death?

DEATH DREAM Psychological Meaning:
Dreams of death represent the ending of one
phase so that a new one can begin. It can show forthcoming
finalities such as the end of a marriage or career.
These are symbolic dreams and are unlikely to forecast
an actual event. If the dead person is someone you know,
consider what aspect of yourself that person represents.
For example, if you dream of your mother dying could
it represent the 'death' of the motherly side
of your own nature. Perhaps you should try to be more
caring and maternal or perhaps plans you have should
be nurtured rather than killed off. Alternatively, you
may also be expressing your hidden feelings about the
person shown. Do you have a secret resentment towards
them or desire to be independent of them? Dead animals may also represent aspects of yourself. They indicate
that you may be rejecting or repressing your instinctive
Freud believed that everyone has
two contending basic drives: Eros, which is the drive
towards pleasure and life and Thanatos the drive
towards death. If the dead person in your dream
was yourself, you may want to consider the following:
DEATH DREAM - What do Dreams about Death mean?
DEATH DREAM MEANING
1. What is being expressed in the death dream? Perhaps
you fear dying and the dream is reminding you of your
own mortality? It is healthy to accept that death comes
to us all as this realisation broadens our spiritual
perspective and loosens the grip of material craving.
Everything in the world is the dust of stars but look
deep within yourself and you may find the part of you
that is eternal.
2. Are you trying to free yourself from something?
You may want to leave your old self behind so that a
new you can be reborn. Free yourself of emotional burdens
and open yourself to new potentials. There is no need
to be a martyr. The way forward is to establish a new
set of values that are beneficial to you and others.
3. Do you feel suicidal? There's no need to punish
yourself or punish others because of how you feel. Occasionally
everyone feels that they want to retreat from life's
problems or from the feeling of failure. But suffering
is a blessing as well as a curse. It is through adversity
that we grow to become better people. Be like a strong
tree that bends with the wind but never breaks. Better
times will inevitably come again.
To dream of meeting the
dead people you once knew is part of the grieving
process. Sometimes the feeling of loss is symbolised
by being rejected, divorced or attacked by the person
you loved. You may dream that they ignore you or have
travelled far away. This is all part of the process
of coming to terms with the death of a loved one.
there are some dreams that cannot be explained as symbolism,
allegory or metaphor. From the many casebooks I have
collected, it appears that occasionally the 'dead' can
communicate to us through dreams. I have cases on file
where information has been given to the dreamer that
could not have been known other than by paranormal means.
For example, one woman wrote to say that her 'dead'
husband told her exactly where to find the missing will
and I have many instances recorded where the 'dead'
person has announced their passing via a dream.
