Dreams and Death

Okay so strange topic but it came up at work today so....

One of my co-workers was telling us about a dream she had last night. She said she dreamed she was on a plane and it was crashing. She said she could see through the pilots window as the plane's nose was going into a church tower. She said just before it was going to hit she felt her body get really light but in the moment it should have hit she woke up.  We were all debating  on whether if you die in a dream you die in real life.

 It's not like we can ask the dead people if they had a dream about dying before they died...so here's my question: Has anyone had a dream where they actually died?

I've had dreams where I *almost* died.  But always woke up right before.  And anyone I've ever talked to who has had "death" dreams say the same thing- they always wake up right before they die.  I read somewhere that you can't dream your own death.  Don't know if that's true or not, just something I read.

I can recall reading this too somewhere...or someone told me which is why we were all talking about it. Office talk is so random!

agreed- office talk is out there.

but, i mean, i HIGHLY doubt that dreaming a death will find you dead in the morning.  otherwise, we might all stay up all night, even without cases of insomnia like my own.

How weird... I had a dream last night about being on a plane that crashed... although there was no church.

Anyway, I've had dreams where I died... usually I wake up before it happens, but I have slept through it where everything just turned black when I was "dead"... so, in my case, I'd have to say that dying in dreams isn't going to kill you... if people really believed that, people would be afraid to go to sleep.

Hubs2be has the same thing... where everything just goes black instead of waking up...

So there's two people you can say have slept through their dream deaths.

Well, I've had dreams where I actually die, but I always seem to wake up after a while, only to learn that I haven't actually died.  Or maybe I did, and there was just no vacancy in either Heaven or Hell at that moment, so I got sent back to Earth, and put right back in the body I left.  Who knows?
