Ok, so.. sorry to start another dream topic, but it just so happens that for a while now I've been having an off and on nightmare if you will about my death. The funny thing is, in every nightmare  I can ever recall having in my life, I die in the end, and generally in not a pleasant manner. First of all, I'd like to say I'm not posting this because I'm scared or want the dreams to stop, I am the kind of person who enjoys interesting things, negative or positive, so I'm actually quite interested in these dreams.

Here's a quick summary of a few few recent ones.

1) Meteors are falling from the sky in the morning, one hits near me, and I am burned alive.
2) I am in an upside down car in a lake, it sinks and I drown.
3) I am looking at a painting, and the girl in it starts moving and shoots me with a gun.
4) I have been, for some reason sentenced to die, and I am beheaded with a big scythe. For some reason I start laughing a few seconds before it happens.

(Not meaning to be graphic, just recalling them here)

Now, I'm just wondering, does anyone know what dreams that you die in mean? Or have any Idea? I don't have many dreams that I remember, so I find them all to be quite interesting.

There are many opinions when it comes to this. Maybe it's something that is occurring in your life that is triggering these dreams. Maybe the end of something? Sometimes you resurrect and the dream continues. Other times, your perspective goes from first person to third, and you see yourself die. There are many other possibilties as well.

Lots of possibilities. I have discussed in other threads a dream  I had in which I died in three different ways. In the next two years i underwent each of those deaths and yet escaped them. My heart wasw cut out/ I survived a sudden triple bypass operation. I was burned alive/our house and all our possessions were lost in a major bush fire (yet thanks to a miraculous warning we escaped with minutes to spare.) I was on a mountain path which narrowed down until it was a ledge which then broke off behind me leaving me to cling to the cliff until I fell to my death ( i am still not sure if the last one relates to a condition of benign vertigo which I have since developed or if it foretold the fact that I would slowly be forced to work part time due to a combination of medical conditions.) Don't worry, thanks to 260 sick days accrued over my working life , i will be on full pay until i retire.
So the dreams may be symbolic precognition Or, the more common theory is that they are your subconscious symbolising major changes in your real life with the image of death in your dreams. As with all dreams, the more you discuss them and analyse them in your waking existence, the more they will become a part of your dream world(They are being reinforced both consciously and subconsciously. Personally i have never found dreams to be harmful, and i think you are doing the right thing in attempting to discuss, analyse and make sense of them. If you can, develop lucid dreaming techniques which may allow you both to take control of your dreams and to make sense of them.
As a child I had a recurring nightmare where, coming through a thickly wooded forest, along a narrow and overgrown path, i came to a fork in the path. As I approached the fork, a large wolf jumped down out of a tree, which was right on the fork and was itself forked. Night after night, year after year, this damn wolf jumped out ; either waking me up or eating me alive. After a few years i became more aware of dreams and symbology, and also learned how to control/create lucid dreams for myself. One night i was coming down this path, when i decided to take matters into my own hands. I pulled out a large gauge shot gun , (a 45 magnum is the dream weapon of choice, because it can destroy anything ,even mind controlling aliens, but i figured a shot gun would do the job nicely) and altered my path in the dreamscape to come up behind the wolf, who was quite visible from the rear perspective. I said "hello wolf", and as he turned around, with a very suprised look on his face, i said, "goodbye wolf" and blew him away. Needless to say I was never bothered by that dream again.  I would have been 10-12 years old at the time, and had just read a science fiction novel, by a well known author, in which a young boy is troubled by dream monsters. His father equips" him with a 45 magnum in his dream, explaining in the real world that this will destroy any monsters encountered in dreams. Later in life, as a space ship captain, his ship is attacked and nearly overcome by telepathic entities which take control of the crews' minds. The captain is also almost overcome, but ,remembering his father's advice, he conjures up the image of a 45 magnum to overcome the telepathic attack. I have always been gratefullthat my father actually encouraged eclectic reading, including science fiction. Oh and I worked out for myself that the wolf represented my own fears at the looming divergences occuring in my life(represented by the fork in the woods) These included the onset of puberty, and moving from the known (primary school) to the unknown (high school) Even the narrow, windy and overgrow path could be seen as the subconscious imagery  of a young person trying to make sense/find their way through the complexities of everyday life.

You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here. And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.

Therefore be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be, and whatever your labors and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life keep peace with your soul.

With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world..

Be cheerful.

Strive to be happy.

Perhaps these dreams mean that you need to start making some changes in your life.

I've dreamt I was shot a few times. creepy.

but there are 2 dreams which really got me thinking.

1. I had back in 96 about 2 months before a 1x2cm basliar aneurysm was found. I dreamt a neighbor lady ( more like my own mother really) pulled up to my house in a yellow cab. ( she herself had passed away at age 46 in 1986 ) she came up to the door ( I was watching her at the screen door in the dream) and said to me " I want you to take this ride with me." to which I said " but your dead" and woke up. then they found that aneurysm ( which they couldn't remove , but went in 2x to slow the blood flow too)( still bothersome from time to time)

2. was just a couple of weeks ago. I'm driving a gold color 4 door buick type sedan with my Grandfather who passed away in the 70's and my 91 year old still kicking Grandmother in the back seat. all of us are driving up the block and I think to myself how it will be the last time I see this block.


creepy. I hate buicks. j/k.

i had a dream a while ago, it involved the number 175, i don't know why, i don't know how it came up, i don't know what it means...

maybe just another dream, maybe a premonition.

only time will tell...

Just last night I had a dream of a huuuuge black and red striped snake with a huuuge head bit me on the leg.... and I remember the people I were with made comments there were no antivenin for this snake's bite...I knew I faced death in this dream...
but I know this was an anxiety dream. My minds way of dealing with anxiety.... some dreams are easily understood, or explained away.. and others are not so simple.

still it would give me the creeps to dream that dream too. I like snakes , but I wonder if I'd be a bit leary of them after that.

having dreams of dying simply means big changes in your life. changes are scary because we dont know what to expect. your very opptomistic thats why you laugh before you die. i think your change is going to be a spritual awakening of some king becaues the things you died in were all physical. good luck my freind and have fun.

I think this dreams can be some deja vu of what could happened if you was in a different situation than the present one.

I've had my share of running up on moccasins and rattlers accidently here in my part of the country my entire life- and each encounter was extremely unnerving. Moccasins are aggressive--scare the flaminig fire out of me. More so than these rattlers (timber & diamond back)... And still out of all my scary experiences with these snakes I've only dreamed about snakes two times...black widow spiders? well, Ive dreamed about those things more times than I want to remember.... I hate to dream about those.
