Death Dreams

Posted on March 13, 2009

I’ve had a couple of strange experiences in my life – usually through dreams, and there are a few here that I will share with you.

When I was about 15 I lived in Germany and I was seeing a German dentist for orthodontic work: she was a frail, middle-aged woman with what appeared to be shoulder-length black hair that somehow looked a little ‘off’, green eyes, and prematurely lined skin. She was a very nice lady, though I really didn’t talk to her very much at all (she didn’t speak much English and I didn’t speak much German) and I had seen her about two times before I had a dream:

In the dream I remember it first being foggy and then I became aware that I was dancing in a circle, singing ‘ring around the rosy’ with other people whose faces I can’t remember. I had looked around to see bright colors and a sunny sky, then I looked down and realized that I was looking into a coffin, and in it lay the lady orthodontist. I woke up after that, and thought it was weird enough to mention to my dad the next day (he and I are really close by the way I actually finish his sentences before he does or I say what I know he’s thinking because I just know usually what he’s thinking before he says it) and he looked kind of surprised, saying that he’d had a dream about her dying too.

Well, a couple weeks later we went back to the office and there was a new orthodontist, the lady orthodontist had died of cancer a few weeks prior. We also found out that she had worn a wig because she didn’t have hair after chemo.

Another experience:

When I was 24 my mom was dying of cancer. I had come to visit her and my dad and help take care of her for a while and when I left again after about 3 months of staying with them (to return again in less than a month) I hugged her good-bye and I just knew that it would be the last time that I saw her.

Two weeks after I left she was in the hospital and I told her that I loved her and to hang on because I would be there in the morning (I’d gotten an immediate flight out but was living in a different state at the time). She tried to talk back to me, but couldn’t at this point in time, and I was of course, absolutely devastated by the realization that my mother was dying and that I wasn’t there yet.

I didn’t think I would sleep that night, I was so anxious and thinking so much of my mother, but finally I drifted off. I saw my mother standing there and she told me that she loved me, and not to worry, that everything would be alright. ‘Take care of Dad,’ she said, and told me to be happy for her, and she’d see me again. I woke up suddenly after that dream and it was 2 a.m. by the clock.

I left the next morning, still holding some hope that I’d get to actually see her before she passed, but I knew deep down and I knew as soon as I saw my dad (who met me at the airport) that my mom was already dead. My dad confirmed this to me upon us meeting, and I told him how she came to me. It was a few years later that I saw her death certificate and saw the time of her death: 2 a.m.

    Bet you couldn’t get over seeing that time of 2am. At least she came to you, so that you wouldn’t feel bad about not gettimg there on time.

  2. trolldoll1681 says:

    i know what your talking about my mom had dreams like that don’t think of it as a curse but think of how your closer to your dad talk to him as often as you can appreciate and validate your love for each other

  3. Alpha says:

    Hey nice stories
    You have a great gift and trolldoll1681is right in saying that you shouldn’t think of it as a curse but as a blessing. I know that encountering death is never easy, especially if it’s a loved one you know whose dying….

    Interesting point: Ring around the rosy was actually a satanic song somewhere in the past.

    Take care!

    • The Caretaker says:

      Ring around the rosy was not a Satanic song. It was a song that children sang about all the dead that had to be piled and burned during the Black Plague

    That story reminded me about my mom, i lost her a year ago when i was twelve, it was very hard for me and i ctually started crying i atleast got to say bye and kiss her before she passed i was called at somwhere around six in da morning by may dad and uncle but atleast u have a good relationship wit ur dad i dnt me and him r always fiting but somehow we still get threw the day. Loved ur story by the way!

  5. Jackie says:

    Further to Caretaker’s comment, the posy, or rosy was thought in those days to ward off the plague, this was carried around on the wrists of people during the time of the plague.

  6. Alpha says:

    Oh k my bad
    I thought it had some satanic symbolism to it
    Take care

  7. Carly says:

    That is so sad. Im really sorry bout ur mom…maybe u should take those dreams as a warning though..

    I had a similar ‘dream’ only I was awake. I lived in Georgia and my dad was in Ky in the hospital (my home state) I had called him a few days earlier and wanted to go home but he INSISTED that I not drive all those miles alone with my son (who was a young child at the time) So I promised him I wouldnt but would try to call him the next day. I couldnt get to a phone the next day. I was sitting watching tv and all at once my dad his mother and his sister were all standing before me ( I was WIDE awake!) all with huge smiles on their faces. I knew in that instant that my dad was gone. My grandmother had passed away many years before but couldnt for the life of me figure out why my aunt was also standing there. I immediately started packing to go home. When my husband came home early from work to inform me of my dads death he was surprised to say the least at finding me already packed and ready to go. Not until I got back to Ky for my dads funeral did I find out that my aunt had also passed away the same day my dad did. But I knew in my heart they all came to tell me they were together and daddy was letting me know it was ok that I hadnt been able to make the phone call to him and let me know he was alright and very happy and with is family on the other side.. Great story! Sure brought back a lot of memories for me!

    i also have those thing though it might sound wierd but everytime i see random people more than 3 times like a month later they ended up being dead.

  10. Jackie says:


    you’re not bad, you were just mistaken that’s all, like we all make mistakes every day! :)

  11. angel34 says:

    just reminded me of my daughter.. she dreams of death also..but of her own death..what does that mean….she also has dreams of my dad her grandpa visiting her..twice!!!!!…she dreams of herself in a coffin

  12. Amanda says:

    It was about a year and a half ago. me and my mom wer on our way home and next to us there was a man on a motorcycle that didn’t have on a helmet. He was an older man. I looked at my mom and I said to her he needs to have on a helmet or he could get hurt really bad or even die like that. About a day or two later we saw the same older man going really fast without a helmet on still. I turned to my mom in the car again and said Isn’t that the man we saw a couple of days ago, she says yeah and he still doesn’t have on a helmet.
    At this time I worked with my mom, grandma and sisters at my grandmas place of business. Me and my sister cleaned the building and this night we were there kind of later than usual. I was in the mens wing making the beds. all of a sudden I here this very loud skid then this very load crash I sit there in the window for a moment to listen for anything else when I hear my mom talking. I go to the front of the building and outside to see there was the same man on the motorcycle it had flipped over he was in very very bad shape there was so much blood every where. The police and ambulance show up when they realized they would never get to the hospital in time to save his life they called in care flit. They came and took him away, he died on his way to the hospital, I felt so bad

  13. Angel of God says:

    dont worry about it… i have had plenty of dreams like that and you fulfilled what she wanted you to do. She is resting and smiling upon you… there’s a brighter side of death and you will see her again
