Dreamcatcher: death

This early morning, I was awakened by a bad dream. Unlike any other nightmare, I woke up peacefully with no trace of fear, exhaustion or irritation.  Clueless, I tried to recall the details of my so-called nightmare.

It was about the same time when I received a lyrical SMS from an unknown number. Poetically, the text message speaks of a death of an acquaintance. I couldn’t remember the exact lines but there was something along the lines of…

‘There he was in the middle of the town village with his pale body hanging by the pole…’

I figured who the dead guy was when the anonymous messenger mentioned the name of the dead guy’s wife.

I cried silently as I read the remaining words and it ended with a detailed account of the funeral schedule.

What could that mean?

My research led me to one dream interpretation website to another and these were the closest information I have found:

To see someone commit suicide in your dream, highlights your concerns for that person. Also consider what characteristics and qualities in that person you may be trying to “kill” and annihilate in your own self. Perhaps you hope that you are not like that person in some way and are making attempts to get rid of those traits within your own self. To see someone dying in your dream, signifies that your feelings for that person are dead or that a significant change/loss is occurring in your relationship with that person. Alternatively, you may want to repress that aspect of yourself that is represented by the dying person. – from Dream Moods

If the death is someone we know: …this shows a desire to be free of someone; or unexpressed aggression; perhaps one’s love for that person has ‘died’. We often ‘kill’ our parents in dreams as we move toward independence. Or we may want someone ‘out of the way’ so we do not have to compete for attention and love. Death of someone close to us: …this often refers to ones own feelings or talents that have been hurt, denied, or ‘killed out’ by events and your response to them. – from dreamhawk.com

death > Does not signify death. Means to remove or be removed from a situation, emotions or circumstances. May or may not involve the dead person. – from newagedirectory
