the thing that makes me curious about this mostly is not that fact that iv died many times in my dream and have even been a ghost at my funeral afterwards, proving to me that dream death isnt automatically real life death. what makes me the most curious is how this idea started, i mean someone goes to sleep and dies. while its said i dont get where the idea started that death in their dream killed them since well, they didnt exactly wake up to confirm or deny this.

Sometimes I think life is one long nightmare with occasional laughs thrown in.

As this thread grows, I've continued to do research into where people began to believe if you died in dreams, you'd die in real life - all I've found so far is the interpretation of death and dying in dreams. A time of growth and change and so forth. Even falling and 'landing' in a dream doesn't foretell or cause death.

Has anyone found out anything about why people relate death in dreams with deal in real life?

i dont agree with dream meanings/interpretations entirely, but atleast the people can be spoken to. so i can see HOW the certain things through lots of life experience and personal accounts could be interpretted to have any kind of meaning. are the meanings legit? i dont know, some make sense but then i feel like that with horoscopes, i often to relate to what it says about my sign, aquarius, but just as often i relate with the other signs as much if not more, its vaguely worded and more or less describes atleast some point of just about every living persons life

but anyway, if anyone findsout where the idea that death in dreams= death in real life please let me know cause the more i think of it, its just making less sense, the only people who have ever told stories of dying in their dreams are 100% undoubtedly living to tell it, and if anyone died in their dream and it resulted in their actual death how the heck did we find this out?

I just had a thought. If you die in your dream/sleep how do you know you’re dead in real life?

I clearly remember two dreams in-which I died.

In the first:
A series of events led me to a school bus that had the windows painted over a dark green.
I entered the bus, on the last step I grabbed the vertical rail with my left hand, as I began to turn toward the back of the bus I hear the sound of a revolver being cocked. Then I see a bright yellowish flash and hear the loud sound of the gun being fired.
I immediately woke from that dream my body very stiff, arms pinned to my sides fingers splayed out and legs straight with my toes pointed straight up. I was unable to move or blink my eyes for several seconds, as I stared up at the ceiling.

The second:
I was driving down a fairly busy street, pedestrians on the sidewalk, cars parked on both sides of the road.
From my left I see someone randomly shooting a rifle at people, I step on the gas in an attempt to get out of range.
I am shot in the head.
My truck is slamming into a parked car. I want to be able to move, but I know I'm dead, and I am relay P***** OFF.
I want nothing more than to kill him, and take my vengeance.

I have died a few times in dreams. I was shot once, and attacked by a zombie once.. that was frightening..

I don't think that I actually died, but when I was a teenager, I used to wake up paralized. There is not many things scarier than that. I guess its called sleep paralysis. It never happens anymore, but I don't know what caused it back then. I used to have paralysis dreams too, so who knows.

If I remember correctly, everyone dreams every night. If that is the case, would make for alot of dead folks I'd think. A dream about dying is a pretty common thing.

It seems that there are some people who die in there dreams and still live to tell the dream here, but with the coincidence of this topic being posted and my dream about two weeks ago, I think that it could be possible to die in one's sleep from one's death in a dream.

About two weeks ago I had a dream that I was drowning. (I also have a natural fear of lakes and oceans in real life, not sure if this played into my dream or why I was dreaming about drowning and I have always been a very good swimmer, but in chlorinated pools only ) But I woke up gasping for air while trying desperately to catch my breath. It was a very unique experience to me because my dream was so vivid that I remembered every detail upon waking while trying to catch my breath. I actually had thought I was trying to get out of the water and not in my bed. It was not until I inhaled 3 times very deeply that it was a dream and I was safe in bed.

That also raises issues too in pertaining to people with sleep apnea about how they struggle for their breath when sleeping. Could it just be their subconscious minds trying to justify why they need air when in full REM sleep that such a death defying dream could be conjured up? I do not have sleep apnea, but my mother does and often she recalls these types of dreams.

One other topic just a little off this topic, but still qualifies under the dream state category. My mom has severe rheumatoid and osteoarthritis so when she sleeps she does not move much in her sleep, but she will often dream of running, jumping, skipping and being chased by some unseen entity. Every dream that she has like this she wakes in an arthritic flair up and is in severe pain as if she had actually had exercised her legs to her dreams extent. I'm not sure how or why her dreaming (or her subconscious) would be able to have such an effect on her limbs while sleeping when they are at rest (any thoughts would be great and appreciated), but from her experiences it seems that her mind does over take her body while sleeping. So, I do believe it could be very possible for the same to happen if someone were to die in their dream that they could also pass from this state of mind (asleep.) ~Julie

you make interesting points that i never really thought about.also i have had tons of dreams where i do things within them and am afflicted physically when i wakeup,on occasion i have been sore for days after something that happened in a dream.and i would never question that this COULD happen.it could possibly happen,but the general myth is that if you die in your sleep you die in real life.not:it is possible to die in your dream and have it result in actual death.thats the part that i doubt highly or actually,i dont mind saying in this case,know for a fact to be false.

your points are valid to the point though so i give you thumbs up :]

I think that the Idea of truly dying as a result of dying in a dream came from the belief that if your mind thinks that your body is dead it will stop sending critical function signals in order to try to retain as much oxygen in itself as possible to its ability to remain functional, sort of like a last ditch effort, hail Mary pass from the brain to try and hold out for a few critical seconds in case some how it can find a way to get a supply of oxygen in those few seconds.

As far as dreams affecting Arthritis I am not sure if that would be something brought on by the mental state (i.e. it was so vivid a dream that it caused ghost pains which only got worse when you convinced yourself that the dreams were causing said pain) or what. But at the same time that really depends on what part of your Mom's body is afflicted with Arthritis, if it is only her joints then that is a mystery, however if it is her connective tissue that is affected by the Rheumatoid arthritis then that can be explained by the same theory of the brain shutting down primary functions in the event of a dream death in order to try to preserve itself. If the brain is convinced that it is running then it will send signals to your muscles to constrict and relax (maybe not enough to make any noticeable movement but enough to excrete lactic acids and agitate connective tissues, possibly to the point of a Rheumatic flair up.

On a Similar note, along the lines of the Gasping for breath when dreaming of drowning, it is a lot like a panic attack, your brain is convinced it cannot get the oxygen it needs causing you to take rapid, mostly ineffective breaths...basically causing yourself to hyperventilate, which can seem like a lack of oxygen in the blood but in fact is an increase in pH levels of the blood due to lower than normal CO2 lvls...again this all just speculation and theory though, I have no solid proof that that is what happens.

I heard that if you are stabbed in your stomach with a sword that you die in real life. Oh and I heard that when you wake up suddenly feeling that youve fallen, thats like some kind of automatic thing from when we were apes and lived in trees!
