Always

All the time..even when I sleep, I dream of death.  I can't stop it...it goes on constantly behind my eyes, even when I ignore it. 

I don't really want to die, but I can't stop thinking these thoughts.  I feel like my mind has turned against me.

Genesis that was not completely true about what you just said, in order to see that help has been offered to you, doesn't have to come directly fro the hand of God.<br />
<br />
Genesis, why do you try to read into a dreams figuratively ? Death is also a sign of new birth a life. It also signifies a closing of the past to an open door to a new beginning. Try not to be lineal in your perception and see it in a different perspective. if you need to know more about what dreams mean just ask, there may be more than one answer, I always look for the ones that seem to relate to other explanations.

8footdread. I'm not exactly sure why, but your comment made me cry *in a good way, i think*. Thank you so much for taking the time.

Dreams of Death - Does not signify death. Means to remove or be removed from a situation, emotions or circumstances.<br />
<br />
It is extremely rare that dreams of of your own death are predicting your death - <br />
but they could be warning you that some big changes are coming - or necessary.<br />
<br />
The value in our dreams of death - no matter how frightening they may be - is that they get our attention. They push us to notice their messages - and to act on them.<br />
<br />
But they rarely mean that we are about to die.<br />
<br />
Death images in a dream are very symbolic and have many levels of potential interpretations. I will list the eight key meanings below.<br />
<br />
Note: Death/Killing - if it is the dreamer that is dying, it never has any connection to a real impending physical death. It is a reference to the need to change one's path in life and allow old attitudes to die. Death usually means that a radical change is necessary.<br />
<br />
Eight basic levels in this symbol.<br />
<br />
An indication that a necessary end has come to a certain phase. A transition to something new.<br />
The desire to shed something (attitudes, behaviours, situations etc.)<br />
A suggestion to come to terms with death and the fear of death, meaning a search for fulfillment and productivity.<br />
A limit has been reached and there is an inability to know how to go beyond that limit.<br />
A suggestion to take better care of one's health.<br />
Something is dying inside.<br />
A close connection with somebody deceased.<br />
A desire for peace, solitude, and harmony (the death of fear). According to Jung, dreaming about death means letting go of something that has died; it is a symbol of transformation and a new beginning.<br />
<br />
Of course, not all eight will apply. Remember, with dreams, intellectualizing the symbols will produce the least effective interpretations. Dreams operate in direct communication with feelings and although the mind/intellect is necessary to gain understanding, the emotional intelligence - the feeling inside that is affected is the most valuable of input for understanding the message. <br />

That change that death signifies is not to be feared - but it IS to be taken seriously and wisely...the changes are quite simply Life Changing...

You know, I was raised without any religion, but I do...very much appreciate the prayers, because I know they come from the heart. <br />

Genisis...(Hugs) you sound as sad as I feel.

God doesn't help everybody.

HI Anesthesia, <br />
<br />
I happened to see your post, it sounds like your are going through some rough times mentally , physically and spiritually. If you don't mind i have prayed for you while writing. My advice is call upon Jesus Christ and pray every morning and everynight to him. I dont know if you have your own beliefs but I tell you the Truth from the Heart , He is the only one who can help Talk with him for he loves you and wants you to feel love and peace instead of fear. Only one person wants you to die and thats Satan and his demons they are real. Call upon the Lord and he will protect you always <br />
<br />
with Love and Light God Bless
