When we dream of death, our emotions run high. Feelings of terror, anxiety or even liberation can dominate our mood upon waking. As with any other
type of dream, there is no one answer for what the dream means. Generally speaking, however, dreams about death signify much needed change in our
lives. Such dreams typically herald symbolic rather than literal death. In this way, death dreams let us know that some part of the self needs to be
radically reworked, whether it be one's attitudes, emotions, or relationships.
Though these dreams may be frightening and may linger in our minds for days, they do come to us in service, challenging us to grow and evolve. Like
all dreams, the best approach to those of death is to work with them creatively, looking within to ascertain what is no longer needed in our lives,
and to determine the direction in which we should proceed.
The death of a loved one may be the result of numerous factors. You may feel genuine anxiety for that person?s well-being. The death may be more
symbolic than that as you struggle with the reality of your love for that person as weighed against repressed anger towards them. Finally, it may
herald the passing of the relationship if the loved one is romantic and not familial in connection.
