When you sleep and dream that someone died, it can have several meanings. Before you translate that dream using your unlearned mind, finish reading the write-up. You will have the adequate knowledge to translate that kind of a dream properly.


change and transition: A new phase about to start

When someone dies in your dream, it can mean that a particular phase of your life is about coming to an end and you are about starting a new phase entirely.

The phase that died may symbolize a particular routine, work or hobby. It will relate to something you always love to do, or something that you wish will end.

Seeing someone dying in your dream may also mean that something you cherish is about to die or has already died. Such a dream may be a sign that you are already missing that thing.

The dream can have a clearer meaning if the individual that died in your dream is someone you love or someone you abhor.

If it is a beloved person, then that thing about to die may be something you love to do; the reverse is true if the dying person is someone you do not like.


Overcoming a bad behavior or habit

The death of someone in your dream may also translate to the end of a bad habit in your life. If you always want to stop a bad habit and you have made an effort to stop it or even prayed against it, then you may start seeing a disliked person dying in your dream.

By making an effort against that thing, your psychology takes over and becomes resolute against that habit. It will then present the situation in the form of a dream as the death of someone you do not like.  The dream can signify victory over that unwanted habit or behaviour.


End of a relationship

Seeing someone dying in your dream can equally translate to the end of a love relationship or friendship.  The person dying in your dream may be the individual you are having a relationship with in real life; it may also be another person that is close to you in real life.

Such a dream may mean a part of your life, that is a relationship, is being taken away from you. The dream may occur before or after the relationship breakup. If it such a dream occurs before the breakup, then you should take it as a warning to work on your relationship.

If you have been too busy to spare time for your loved one, it is time to put an end to avoidable negligence and work towards making your relationship to stand.
