How many people have told you that if you die in your dream, you die for real?

I find it stupid 'cause there's no way to prove it.

One night, while I was at band camp (no, nothing like THAT happened at Interlochen), some of my cabin mates were saying they'd heard interesting things about dreams where you're falling. Supposedly if you hit the ground, you actually die.

Kinda hard to prove!

Not sure if it goes under this category, mods, so feel free to move it if it doesn't, I don't mind.

Although such a dreams may bring about feelings of fear and anxiety, it is no cause for alarm and is often considered a positive symbol. Dreams of experiencing your own death usually means that big changes are ahead for you. You are moving on to new beginnings and leaving the past behind. These changes does not necessarily imply a negative turn of events. Metaphorically, dying can be seen as an end or a termination to your old ways and habits. So, dying does not always mean a physical death, but an ending of something.

On a negative note, to dream that you die may represent involvement in deeply painful relationships or unhealthy, destructive behaviors. You may feeling depressed or feel strangled by a situation or person in your waking life. Perhaps your mind is preoccupied with someone who is terminally ill or dying. Alternatively, you may be trying to get out of some obligation, responsibility or other situation.

To see someone dying in your dream, signifies that your feelings for that person are dead or that a significant change/loss is occurring in your relationship with that person. Alternatively, you may want to repress that aspect of yourself that is represented by the dying person.

You might also want to see F for falling for information on falling.
