The feeling you get during death dreams is often quite intense and many people wake up with the relief that it was all just a dream! But what are dreams about death really telling us?
1. Judgement or Guilt
Death dreams can actually represent something in your life that you feel a sense of guilt over. This dream shows you that you are still blaming or judging yourself about your past actions that are associated with feelings of guilt.
For example, if in the dream a dead body is found that you caused five years ago then think back to what happened in your waking life five years ago that you felt guilty about and if anything recently in your life has reminded you about this.
If in the dream you are facing the prospect of being sent to prison over a death then it implies that you are letting your judgement or guilt from some aspect of your past limit you in some part of your waking life.
2. The End of Something or Change
Death dreams can also suggest that something in your life is coming to an end or changing. You can't change something without getting rid of an old way, so the dream will often show this to you as something dying such as a dead body.
Dreams of death may represent any form of change in your life such as a change in your relationship with someone, a career change, a change in your attitude about something, or even a change in your body such as a new hairstyle for example.
If you dream that your pet cat you had years ago died in the dream then think about what the cat meant to you when it was in your life. If the cat was very loyal for example then your dream would suggest that this characteristic in your life is dying off. So think about current situations in your life where this could relate to.
If you have death dreams where your mother dies then this suggests that your motherly side, or the thing that your mother represents to you, is coming to an end in some part of your life. So any aspect of the type of people that might die in dreams may represent that aspect of yourself that has somehow ended or changed.
So when you have dreams about death, make note of what it is that is dying in the dream and then think about what this thing or person represents to you and how this could relate to something in your waking life.
Dreams of death may also represent fears you have about things not going right in some part of your waking life.
For example, relationship issues could be a situation in your life that may cause you to have this dream. You may see the person you love dying to represent that part of you feels like it is dying or that person is dying from your life. It can also represent a relationship that has come to an end and you're having trouble accepting this.
A dream where you bury or hide something that has died such as a dead body for example can represent the things that you bury within yourself in your waking life such as fears or bad childhood experiences.
