Dying

Dying, like death, is a consistent symbol for change, transition and separation in dreams. It should not be interpreted literally. Dreams of a child, sibling, parent or friend dying reflect change in our perception of that relationship. Old qualities of the person are "passing away," new qualities are being recognized. Dreams of a dying ex-lover reflect separation of the relationship. Mothers of toddlers often dream of accidents, including a dying child. These dreams are not precognitive. Rather, a mother's concern for her child's safety, represented by the accident, never rests!

Dreaming of dying (a dreamer may witness his or her death and funeral, or may "just know" that he or she has died) symbolizes an inner metamorphosis and an evolution of development. Old ways of perceiving are passing away; new self-discoveries are being made.
