What Does It Mean When You Dream Of Someone Dying?
1. Dreaming of the death of family, relatives, and friends is a ubiquitous dream. This can reflect on how we feel about that person or that relationship in our waking life. It could mean many things we consciously do not want to acknowledge.
Many people experience nightmares where they dream of watching someone die and then suddenly realize it was themselves lying dead on the ground. This means you have an unconscious fear of dying yourself or, even more likely, fear for your own life or feelings of helplessness about anxiety attacks recently suffered from which you cannot escape (see anxiety disorder).
Sometimes, such dreams can be triggered by conversations about dying as part of the normal conversation without realizing its effect on those around them (see death conversation).
Dreams about death, in general, represent your feelings of emotional exhaustion and pessimism in waking life. You feel that nothing ever works out for you, so why to bother to try to enjoy yourself or reach any goals.
It may also indicate fears of growing older and declining your health (see aging, illness ). This dream can also reflect people who are depressed and emotionally exhausted because they have spent their lives looking after other people but not themselves. They feel useless and unfulfilled until they start to look after number one again (see caregiver ).
Often this dream is dreaming that someone has died suddenly without having time to say goodbye, which reflects how we often live our lives rushing around day by day with no thought for tomorrow.
If you dream of saying goodbye to someone, perhaps wanting them not to leave or go away on a journey, this is often an emotional plea that you do not want the person to die. This is especially true if it was not your choice for them to die (see death premonition ).
Dreams about the death of children represent anxieties about pregnancy and concerns for the health of your unborn child (see baby, pregnant ). A more direct interpretation suggests that having children is becoming too burdensome, and now you are considering giving up your maternal responsibilities. The stress of looking after children may affect other areas in your life that you need time for, too (see commitment).
Alternatively, dreaming of a dead child refers to worries that you will become like your parents, old and alone without family to support you. It may also indicate that you feel that your child is neglecting you or has turned against you (see abandonment ).
Dreams where someone dies after a long illness represent guilt for not getting the person help sooner. You feel it would have been better if they died quicker than suffer you dreamy they did (see sick, failure, yams of events leading up to death, then perhaps you need to pay more attention to your health before something serious happens (see ill ).
What does it mean when you dream about the death of a friend?
When you dream about the death of a friend, it means you are experiencing the loss of someone close to your heart. The way this person dies in your dream is significant. If they die peacefully, then say goodbye for good because there is no longer anything keeping them with you here on earth.
If they die violently or tragically, something unexpected may happen that changes everything and forces you into drastic action. The way your friend’s lifeless body appears in your dream will also be necessary. Is it peaceful? Is there blood? Is the ground around their dead body torn apart? Each detail can help give clues about what these dreams mean for you specifically.

Meanings of dreams about people who have just died: A dream which features someone dying suggests that there is an issue in your life right now which is something big and needs to be dealt with carefully.
Perhaps this situation is hurting other areas in your life, too, so maybe you need to look at the bigger picture here. Another interpretation suggests that you are experiencing guilt and sadness because of how someone else’s passing has affected you (see death).
A more general interpretation suggests that you are currently experiencing a time of change in your life. This change may be something big that is causing you a lot of stress or anxiety. Alternatively, this change may be something positive that will ultimately benefit you in the long run.
Thus, dreaming about death is often an indication that you need to pay more attention to some critical issue in your life that is also affecting other areas. It can also symbolize a time of significant change, which may be positive or negative depending on the dream’s details. Finally, dreaming about someone’s death often represents our anxieties about pregnancy and the health of our unborn child.
