Bookmark to: StumbleUpon Bookmark to: Facebook DREAM INTERPRETATION: This dream dictionary makes the claim that it is better than any other. Why? It works on the assumption that if something very big and important happens the day before then you will surely dream about it. This dictionary collects together such dreams and has meticulously studied their meanings. Try to study the definitions and questions below and see how they relate to real life right now.

DEATH : Death is often the most feared of symbols for obvious reasons. Our studies have shown that death dreams should not be as feared as they are. If you study dreams in reverse - by linking them to key intuitions the day before then you start to understand the symbolism. One dream of death occurred as the dreamer was thinking about a sport that he was no longer able to participate in. So really the dream was about the DEATH of this activity in his life. That's not so scary - the dream was merely a symbolic version of thoughts you are aware of any way.

Death dreams can link to death but again they should not be so feared. One dreamer was thinking about death the day before. He had seen someone who looked just like a friend - this man was being carried into an ambulance. The dream represented this eerie moment. But really the dreams origin was entirely in his own head. It was a dream about the thought of death. The man in the ambulance was not his friend he merely looked like him. So the dream was triggered by the eerie thought of death or serious accident.

One dream in our study had a quite innocuous meaning. The dreamer had been watching a TV reality show which had been on every night. It had now ended so the death in the dream was about the passing of this program. It had ended - with death as the symbol for its end. It seems unusual to have a dream about something like this but actually day to day issues will dominate our thinking. We concentrate on what's new so this dreamer was realising that this program had ended and this was crucial to his current need to find something new to do on a night.

One dream in our study was about the death of the dreamers Grandfather. One consequence of this dream was that the dreamer went to see her Grandfather the next day. So maybe the dream was a way of showing you just how important this loved one is. If your dream takes you to a place where your loved one has died it just reinforces your feelings. It shows you just how important and loved this person is. Its maybe your minds way of valuing that person more.

QUESTIONS to help you make associations(pick the one that makes most sense to you)
- Did you realise just how death was a possibility in some way yesterday?
- Does the dream feature people? If yes then has your relationship changed or altered or simply died out recently?
- Did the dream make you feel just how important someone is to you? If yes then maybe the dream simply is drawing attention to how important they are?
- What skills can you not do any more?
- What important changes and transitions are there in your life right now?

KEY WORDS :Eerie feeling, real life death and dying, ending, transition, change, inability(write down some quotes that capture your key feelings on issues that have been dominating your mind. Then see if any of these words appear in those quotes)

KEY PHRASES(Pick a quote which captures your feelings right now. Think especially of the new thoughts and feelings you have been clarifying in your mind) :
- "I felt this EERIE yesterday when... "
- "he could really die" - "I could have died"
- "it has ended"
- "This FRIENDSHIP HAS DIED" - "That place is no longer a part of my life"
- "I cannot do that any more"
- "Seeing him die in the dream has made me realise just how important he is to me - I would really miss him"

Below you will see a series of quotes. Each quote represents the meaning of a particular dream(these are all dreams where the meaning is understood totally). For instance one dream may have meant that the dreamer was having trouble at work. In that case the quote may simply be "There is a bad atmosphere at work". Some information is included about which dream symbols were included in the dream(within the squares brackets). Often a sample dream is included which shows you how the dream interpretation was reached.
DREAM ANALYSIS : What is the symbolic meaning of Deaths in dreams?
Obviously death in dreams is one of the major symbols. It is something that makes someone think about a dream and want to interpret it. The fear it maybe a premonition is a major motivating factor in trying to understand the dream. But often that fear is misplaced.

In particular death often links with a relationship that has just ended or is in danger of ending or is in a process of change. E.g.

"Its been ages since I last saw my friend. Its like the friendship has been ALLOWED TO DIE"[Dream interpretation - death of friend ][the dream which this quote is based is featured in full at the end of this article]

"I keep getting terrible nightmares of my Mom dying. I am only 3 years old. My mother just walked out on the family without telling anyone. She left home to live with another man and we haven't seen her since"[Dream dictionary - recurring dreams of mother dying]

"Everything seems so empty now that I have ENDED my relationship with my girlfriend"[Dream interpretation - death ]

"I am not keen on it and if it goes wrong then I am sure it will affect my relationship with my boyfriend. It may backfire"[Dream interpretation - die ]

"Well if I do not see her in the holidays I am not sure I will see her at all. In practice our relationship will have DIED"[Dream interpretation - death ]

"I have got to accept that my relationship with my boyfriend is OVER. I am moving to a new state and its just not going to be practical"[Dream symbol - death of puppy ]

"college has finished and I have graduated but I still want to keep in contact with my guy friend. I know its not going to be easy but I am not willing to accept that the friendship is over"[Dream interpretation - death stands over me]

"My mum has been really mean to me recently"[Dream interpretation - mother dies in an accident]

Often death dreams will be connected with death. They will symbolise a moment when you thought about death or thought about the possibility of someone dying. E.g.

"That man I saw taken away in an ambulance looked just like my friend. It was quite EERIE"[Dream interpretation - ghostly feeling ]

"I have got to really get to the heart of this health problem or she may actually DIE"[Dream interpretation - cemetery ]

"I had a dream about my mothers death and immediately phoned her up and found that my grandmother had been diagnosed with cancer"[Dream dictionary - death of mother ]

Often death dreams symbolise how some situation in your life has just recently ended. Maybe you have left a job or finished a course of education.

"I just do not know what to do now that my favourite reality show has ENDED. I watched it every night for two weeks and now its ended"[Dream symbol - cemetery ]

Often a dream of death will simply represent your fear that something will end. E.g.

"If I am not careful she will just SACK me"[Dream interpretation - death ]

Sometimes death will symbolise merely a change or transition. One situation has been replaced by another one. E.g.

"My bosses have brought in a NEW manager in my company. I wonder how it will affect me."[Dream interpretation - Death of a president ]

"I have decided to live life at a much slower pace. I tend to be too hedonistic and want to live life in a much more calmer way. "[Dream interpretation - Horse is being put down]

The dream maybe also refers to a change within you. A transition to some new mood or feeling. E.g.

"I feel a lot better now. That illness really got me down. Now I feel better - yesterday I felt terrible - old and tired like an old man."[Dream symbol - Death of grandfather ]

Death can sometimes symbolise things which you are no longer capable of doing. E.g.

"I felt depressed watching my home videos yesterday as it reminds me of my youth and all the things I CANNOT DO NOW"[Dream interpretation - death ]

"If I try to do too many things at once then I end up exhausted and UNABLE to do anything"[Dream interpretation - piglet dies ]

Death can symbolise something that is simply not happening. E.g.

"I had expected that money to turn up by now. Maybe I should check up if something has GONE WRONG"[Dream interpretation - death of baby in a purse ]

"Well its a good idea - maybe if I adapt it it will not be DITCHED"[Dream symbol - death ]

Often a dream about someone's death maybe the minds way of showing you how important and dear to you that person is. It maybe will push you into visiting them or showing how much they mean to you. E.g.

"I dreamt my grandfather died and felt so worried. I immediately went to his house to check up. I was so relieved when he had not died.."[Dream symbol - Grandfather dies ]
DREAM TIP : Dreams concentrate on changes in your life. So think of change and transition taking place in your feelings. Think of new situations and new feelings. These really are the stuff of dreams.
THE DREAM - I am in a graveyard. I am talking to a gravestone. It is the grave of my friend. But I was talking as if she was alive.

THE REALITY The dreamer had drifted away from the friend in the dream. They had not seen each other for a while.

THE INTERPRETATION Death dreams will usually symbolise the end to a period in your life. In this case it links to the dreamers own realization that her friendship with the person in the dream was now over. It had been allowed to die.
