I am a dreamer. Sometimes I lay down and close my eyes and dream, sometimes for hours and not fall asleep, sometimes with listening to music, sometimes I don’t want to fall asleep to dream but most of the time it’s to escape reality.
I got really personal when I spoke about dreams when I included John Mayer’s ‘Dreaming with a Broken Heart’ in Artist and Song of the week in May.
In my dreams I see what I pray to be my future. A family with husband and kids, being successful with my boutiques and more. It’s like a sitcom every night. I also have reoccurring dreams that frighten me; dying. For some strange reason, I have dreams of me being diagnosed with cancer and dying. I have dreams of being on stage, dancing and singing and that I am a huge superstar! And the most scariest dream I always try to wake up from is having miscarriages. It’s so scary and I can’t figure out why I have dreams like this. I also see a lot of tears that feel so real.
Anyway, I also love to figure out what they mean. A few years ago my sister told me about this website that interprets every dream, it’s www.dreammoods.com A lot of it make sense and gives me clarity and understanding as to why these dreams occur.
Following are interpretations of my reoccurring dreams. I really think others can relate and should go to the site to look up theirs that may not be included here. It may be a lot of writing but its worth to read if your interested.
To dream that you die in your dream, symbolizes inner changes, transformation, self-discovery and positive development that is happening within you or in your life. Although such a dreams may bring about feelings of fear and anxiety, it is no cause for alarm and is often considered a positive symbol. Dreams of experiencing your own death usually means that big changes are ahead for you. You are moving on to new beginnings and leaving the past behind. These changes does not necessarily imply a negative turn of events. Metaphorically, dying can be seen as an end or a termination to your old ways and habits. So, dying does not always mean a physical death, but an ending of something.
On a negative note, to dream that you die may represent involvement in deeply painful relationships or unhealthy, destructive behaviors.

The fear of abandonment may manifest itself into your dream as part of the healing process and dealing with losing a loved one. It may also stem from unresolved feelings or problems from childhood.
