I remember as a kid having someone tell me that if you die in your dream that you die in reality. Well, I am here to tell you that it just ain't so. I have had it happen a couple of times.
However, I had a few that were odd in that I actually was dead in the dream. Probably the most terrifying dream was where I was experiencing nothing: no sound, no light, no sensation at all. And then the thought dawned on me, "I am dead and this is all that will be FOREVER."
But the other night I had a less terrifying dream, but I still was dead. I was up and walking around. My coffin was there, and I was stepping on it and dragging it around. At first I didn't realize that I was dead, but then I went to take a shower and realized I had been embalmed. One of the last things I remember about the dream was realizing I had to pee and not wanting to spend eternity with a full bladder.
I wonder if dreaming of death may be something like the Death card in tarot. Does it predict change instead of actual death? I know that we have been through a lot of changes lately. Maybe Dr. Spo has a comment? I know that the both of the dreams weirded me out when they happened, and the NOTHING dream weirded me out for a long time! (Still does.) But the latest dream kind of makes me chuckle.
