      What happens when you die in your dream?

      not long ago i dreamed that i died: one instant i was alive, and the next i was dead. nothing happened physically, but i experienced a profound change nonetheless; i felt released from all obligations. it was really pretty cool, like nothing i've experienced while awake... i hope it feels something like this when really do die.

      so it got me wondering - what do others experience when they die in their dreams? if you have dreamed of your own death i would like to hear about it.

      the dreams i had of dying were actually very... enjoyable haha. there were a few where i was drowning. i just accepted my death, let it happen, and was liberated by that release.

      Wow, that's pretty cool. I have died a couple of times in dreams, but I usually wake up immediately afterwards, so I can't tell what actually being "dead" in a dream would be like. For the most part, I'm not very upset about what's going on when I dream that I have died. More like, "Aw, rats".

      The only times I've ever felt I was dead was in a zombie dream, so I came back as a zombie.



      They had put me in a bed down in my basement, and waited for me to come back. I slowly sat up, knew I was a zombie, and looked over at one of the girls. She slowly raised a gun and shot me in the head, then I slowly fell back on the bed and everything went dark again.

      Question

      i died in my dream once.
      i was in a car accident on my way to work. i was wearing the same thing i wear to work every day which coincidentally was a black suit. i got hit on the drivers side and everything went fuzzy. when i woke up i was still in the car and people were all around and paramedics were trying to pull me out. everything went fuzzy again and i was in a hospital in the emergency room with a bunch of people putting tubes in me and then i was being shocked. i blinked in slow motion and when my eyes opened again i was floating above myself just watching everyone work on me thinking...'no way'.
      everything went fuzzy again and i was standing there in a grey place and i was with my Papa who passed away a few years ago and he took me hand and we went for a walk through the front door of my grandparents old house. there was a big flash and i was at my funeral, standing there at the back of the funeral home while all my friends and family were there.
      when i woke up my arms and legs were asleep, i was freezing cold, shaking and out of breath.
      wtf?

      Come to think of it when i was about 7 i had a long dream and in the end a zombie was chasing me outside and i just gave up running and i layed down on the grass and closed my eyes... i went into third person view and was looking at myself, then the zombie came and nelt down on the grass and picked me up in its arms then looked toward the third person me and then i woke up that was about the only death sort of dream i had... was pretty scary at the time

      hell yeah

      there was this one time, when I was in my garage fixing a car. that was kinda odd seeing as i don't own a car, nor do i know how to fix one... suddenly it exploded

      I got thrown into the wall and I was completely paralyzed, I felt no pain, and there was a loud ringing noise in my ears. I could feel my body, and everything was black

      I felt like I was there, but I wasn't? its hard to explain :/

      Man, I would like to experience dying in a dream. It sounds like something I haven't experienced in real life (but no duh) so it'd be almost trippy to experience it in a dream.

      All the best,

      When I got shot, I felt like I was getting a ten inch needle in my back.

      But, It was actually quite enjoyable. I was lucid enough to know I wasn't really dying, so I was totally at peace with the world. As I fell, and the world faded into black, I was happy.

      Love to do that again.

      Once, I was killed by a car in my dream. It was really weird, I actually felt sad, as if I had lost a friend instead of my own life. I spent another 10 minutes being a ghost and watching my friends saying goodbye to me and the others who didn't make it.

      I've never actually died in a dream, but when I'm about to, I just usually wake up

      I died once in a dream, as far as I remember. It was beautiful.

      Intense dream, hiding from this serial killer who was murdering people in some building where we were. I was avoiding him, carefully sneaking from room to room, but that was so exhausting and filled with fear. I finally gained some lucidity and gave up the chase. The lucidity wasn't enough to let go of the fear, it just gave me some comforting feeling that it was going to be all right. So I set down on a floor of one room and anxiously waited. I was surrounded with a few people who were pretty much in a same state I was in, so we talked a little about it. The killer came in, pointed a gun at my temple, and I was thinking to myself: "I'm safe, this can't hurt me, but is this a dream? If it is, then it won't be done, I never die in my dreams... No, this has to be done, I want to go through this!". And I was shot. I felt such a relief and even joy. Next thing I knew I was leisurely leaned on a car bonnet with hands in my pocket. A friend came, knowing nothing, and I simply said to her "We cannot die. It's just a transfer." We got into a car and drove away.

      I've had a few dreams where I die...most recently, I got kidnapped by Sylar (villain from the Heroes TV show) and he cut my head open like he does on the show. It hurt like nothing else! I could feel the loss of sensation, the heat of blood pouring down my face...I even heard my ear ringing from loss of blood as I collapsed on the ground! Not so pleasant a way to die.

      Interesting thing was, after a long period of total darkness and not dreaming, I found myself lying on the ground, my head still in pain, but the pain was easing. I tried to open my eyes, but everything was really blurry. Reaching my hand up, I felt that my head had healed somehow. It was then that my focus came back, and the pain stopped completely. I saw Claire Bennet (also from Heroes) standing there, and I figured that I had empathic mimicry (the ability to use the super powers of people around me) and was using Claire's ability to heal.

      It was a pretty weird feeling, dying and then coming back to life, without waking up in between. I never once was lucid, so I accepted the whole thing as real throughout the entire process.

      After I die in a dream, I usually watch all my friends/family be sad and then I wake up glad it's not real.

      I was once shot and left for dead in a dream. The pain was overwhelming, so much so that I thought I'd wake up wounded.

      Most of the time if I die I go lucid. Like I never really get there, though I know I am dead. I'm not making sense, but I hope you kinda get what I mean.

      Sometimes I dream about an afterlife.. othertimes I find myself in blackness for a few seconds then wake up.
      Occasionally I take the form of someone else, or jump into the body of a DC.

      Mine was terrifying. I had a dream I was being mugged, and then felt him put a gun to my head and shoot. The amount of detail I remember is astounding. I could feel the wind, his breathe, and the icy cold tip of the gun. I woke up shaking- not enjoyable at all.

      I believe that's because you immediately woke up. You didn't get to the good part.

      Well, i did FEEL like I died. I HEARD the gunshot and FELT the bullet go through me- but I felt so violated, he took my money and life without permission. I think that's what terrified me the most

      I have a recurring dream in which i get stabbed in the stomach and bleed to death.I start to lose strenght, feel dizzy and get this anxiety feeling about wanting to live longer.Then i wake up with tears in my eyes and somewhat relieved.Not pretty.

      I've died a couple of times in my dreams, the most memorable was being shot point blank in the face. It didn't hurt but it just went black then I woke up. Did'nt really bother me that much though.

      Nothing happens. People die all the time in dreams.
