Have just had an afternoon nap resulting in the most horrid dream and has made me feel really sad and miserable since I woke up.
I was in my aunty and uncles house but they weren't home and I heard and saw one of my 4 cousins coming down the path at the side of the house. I was looking out of the window at him and he saw me so I immediately felt scared and hid behind the curtain. I noticed then that he had a gun but he was pushing my 1 year old neice in her buggy which I thought was wierd... I made sure that all the doors were locked and was running round the house looking for somewhere to hide but he kept popping up and I had to keep running from room to room. I finally decided to hide in the attic but then my 23yr old brother appeared up there with me and my cousin jumped up a hatch and shot my brother above the eye at point blank range. my brother was screaming and we were both running about the attic. we then hid in a corner and I noticed my aunty was just silently sat on a sofa next to us and I was screaming at my cousin not to shoot again and I seemed to know that he only had 3 bullets left and it would all be over after they were fired! He started to shoot at us and my brother got hit again and then I held him in front of me so that he would get the rest of the bullets because I figured he'd already been hit so much he was going to die anyway :-( after I held him up and I knew the gun was empty I laid him on the floor and was crying hysterically and saying "I'm so so sorry baby, I didn't mean to, I'm so so sorry!" Then my cousin came and sat on the sofa next to my aunty and put his arm around her, then I woke up...

I don't know if real life circumstance has anything to do with it but I had been talking to someone I know earlier in the day who has just found out she has leukaemia and my aunty has 4 different types cancer and less than a year to live so I was trying to reassure her that it's ok because it's been found early... I had been thinking about my brother earlier too as him and his partner are expecting their 2nd child..
Any help or advice on this dream would be lovely as I feel like a horrible person letting my brother die to save myself but if anything in real life I would shield him!!!

If it makes you feel any better, death in a dream is not a literal death - it is about personality change - an old aspect of the personality that is no longer needed is dying off.

Your brother could be - and very probably is - representing your inner masculine. (We all have masculine and feminine aspects to our personality).
