has anyone ever died in their dreams before? its a wierd experience last night i had one of the most vivid dreams ive ever had, i was in a large old timey looking theater watching a play, it was in some huge metropolis, i went in and sat down inside, i remember it was a play sponsored by my old high school. there were tons of people there. all of a sudden a crazy man came in yelling with a sub mac and started gunning people down, i felt the worst fear i have ever felt in my life, i though everything happening was real. i hid behind some guy i didnt know thinking maybe he wasnt after me, i would get away. sure enough he shoots my sister, she fell on my shoulders dying. next thing i know my heart sinks and i see him aim at me. he shot me at least 20 times, i felt intense pain with every bullet, i imagine that if i got shot, it would feel exactly as it did in this dream, i felt the blood seeping out of my body, and each bullet sitting, stinging, inside of me. all of a sudden i started to black out, i fell, slowly my vision started fading, i felt at peace, i accepted my death, and the intense pain began feeling numbed. next thing i know im looking at the tall cieling, blackness slowly takes over my vision, im floating up towards the sky, perfectly happy and free from my body. then i woke up anyways, does anyone know what a dream like this could mean, it was amazingly vivid, i still remember it as if it were a movie scene i saw today. maybe it had something to do with a past life? or just a fear of death? it was wierd experiencing dream death, it felt so real, i thought, even knew, i woke up breathing heavy and sweating intensely. it was real at the time. has anyone else had a vivid dream about death before, where it felt completely real (although its impossible to know whether or not it felt real seeing as ive never been shot or died). feel free to share anything related to death in dreams.
