So in the dream--it was pretty lucid--I knocked on a door then some guy approached from outside who suprisingly shot me twice with his .22. Both bullets went into my right side so I ran away...running with my dogs trying to get home...but I had to lay down and I actually died there in that dream.

Anyone else ever wake up dead in a dream?

Yes. I was trying to tread water in a very deep harbour but had lost all my strength ...... couldn't swim, was struggling to keep my head above water. I was absolutely panic-stricken as I began to sink. I drowned, I knew I was dead but I suddenly felt relaxed and happy and then discovered that I could have a new 'life', 'living' underwater! Brilliant! :lol:

I was in a car wreck in a dream once then found myself outside of the wreck, but in the dream I knew I was dead in the car. It was not a pleasent feeling. Mostly because I thought I would have to leave my kids.

Almost. I thought I was about to die in a dream once. I felt the pain, panic and struggle of trying to breathe and my body shutting down. I almost woke myself up but suddenly became lucid and stuck with the dream. I went totally unconscious instead. Everything went black for a little while and there was just "nothing"...but I was still aware and alert. Then I came to in the dream and woke up shortly afterwards.

Many time. But after dead, I'm "revived" in another scene and feeling the joy that I'm immortal.

No. Your supposed to wake up before you die in a Dream. I recently came up with a theory regarding this. You know how some people die in there Sleep, supposedly of "Natural Causes" right? Well my theory is when you die in your dream you die in real life. Which is why you are Supposed to wake up before you die.

Reminds me of Nightmare on Elm st. where kids are murdered in dreams. It looks like a few people survived death in a dream though. I knew I would die because there was nobody around to save me. I couldn't go another step; as I died the last thing I saw was my dog running along...

You just know you're dead then wake up slowly, without fear, but then soon scared that something like that might happen in the future. I've never seen that door before but I would recognize it if I ever see it.

I played around with that theory when I was about 17. I first tested it on my friends though. I went lucid one night and slit a friends throat to test if it would kill him in real life. It didn't. Then I thought I'd test it on myself so I went lucid another night and shot myself in the head(this was around the same age so not the dream the other night). All that happened was that my body fell but I was like a ghost sitting there. I keep playing around with this theory though.


Anyway I've had a couple of interesting death dreams but I think this one is best suited to the question.


17th September 2011

I dreamt last night I was in a desert looking place and was trying to escape a group of people. I took a left turn hoping to lose the main one following me but instead came to a dead end. I looked around and saw a very tiny gap in the corner of a fence that was above about a meter and a half wall so I slipped through it. The lady who was after me went down that way as well and I was laying down trying to not be seen. Somehow I was caught and taken back to the group and they were like mutant looking(well the main older guy anyway). They were cannibal and he was going to eat me. I forget parts of the dream and so this is only a ruff telling but I was at first trying to talk my way out of it but he was pretty set in his ways. So I accepted it and said to him to at least kill me quickly. I had placed my hands in an almost prayer position when I asked him this and had accepted my fate.

He reached over the pulled out a chunk from my left ear(or it was my left ear I'm not sure but I knew I was dying.

Next thing I know is I am laying down in my old car(my first car in the back of it/ a panel van)and I am just a body that has been left there. I have no skin and so am just red meaty looking and am covered with flies. Flies were all on the roof of the car as well and just everywhere and I cant move or anything because I am dead and rotting.

Then someone opened the back door to the panel van and all these bees rush in and start killing the flies. The flies tried to escape and flew up into the sky but the bees followed them and they made a big dark swarm that spiralled upwards. When this happened I became the bees and it was like I was one of them but also all of them. We were stinging the flies but our stings were not coming off because the flies were small. So all the flies were dying and us bees were going to kill everyone of them. It was like my bees had come to collect me and take revenge.

Yes, same scenario, gun to the head.  It was in slomo and I could feel the intense heat of the bullet as it traveled through my head.  I was aware that it was the end and everything went black before I woke up in cold sweat.

Another dream I was poisoned and paralyzed and very aware that I was dying and there was nothing I could do about it.  Once again everything went black but this time I was aware for a few seconds longer where I was able to say to my self, there is nothing.  Then I faded out into black and woke up in peace.

Every time i died in a dream ( off the top of my head i can think of two times) ,  i would switch from first person to third person just as it happened, usually waking up within a second or two  after it happens.( the first time i was eaten by a nightmare spider  the second time i was shot )

It seems strange to me that posters here are equating dying in a dream with dying in 'real life'. I've mainly thought of death in a dream as purely symbolic or, rarely, a premonition.

I heard that nobody ever dies in dreams. I don't know who told me that but they were obviously wrong. Death in a dream is probably the most severe form of symbolism imaginable.

Dreams are very personal and similar dream themes can mean completely different things to each individual.  Depends on the person and what's going on in their lives and what they believe in.  it's all relative.
