Death In Dreams

I went on a vacation this summer to Maryland and one night while I was up there I had a Nightmare that my step-mother killed my father and myself at the pool. I told my dad and now he jokes about the dream. That was like 3 weeks ago, then last night I had another dream about her killing me. She like came in my room threw me on the bed and choked me to the point that I died. I mean I don't get along with her, but now because of these dreams I am afraid to be alone with her, because some people say dreams are true. What does this mean? Please help me.

Don't worry, dreams like this don't usually represent reality. People in your dreams often represent different parts of yourself.

Death in a dream can mean the death or change to a part of your personality or the end of a certain phase in your life. When you dream of your stepmother killing you and your father, perhaps you are feeling that she has killed the way you and your father once were together. Perhaps you are afraid that her presence will kill some part of you or the way you once lived.

What was the strongest feeling in your dream? Was it fear? Anger? Try to remember how you felt. Since you have had this dream more than once, your feelings about this must be very strong. Don't ignore them. Talk to your Dad about how you feel. If you can, talk to a therapist about how you feel, your dreams are telling you that you are upset, pay attention to them, uncover your true feelings and get them out in the open so you can then get rid of them.

One way to understand your dream better is to write it out, then ask the characters in the dream some questions. For example, you can ask (in your imagination) the stepmother in your dream why she is killing you. You can then write out an answer. This is just a fun way to try to get to the bottom of dreams. Sometimes it really helps you understand what is going on. Good Luck.
