What does a shadow of death in a dream mean?

I had this dream, that my brother came in my room an said he couldnt sleep. In the dream he was on his laptop, then he turned it off and walked out of my room. He turned around and was yelling for me to get out. He kept yelling, but I couldn’t move. Then I looked over to my wall and there was a shadow of the grim reaper. When I woke up, my bed was shaking and I couldn’t move. eventually my paralysis was over and I ran to a different room.
And no I am not trolling. This is a real question.


  1. You could’ve just had a nightmare. I had one about him as well, but I doubt it means death. Usually birth means death.

  2. You might be afraid he has a serious illness or is in danger. BUT All dreams are about yourself. So, something in your relationship with your brother might be coming to an end, like a death of some part of your relationship.
    PS, that figure is also Old Father Time and time moves on relentlessly taking us nearer to our grave every day, hence his name is also the Grim Reaper. Worry a bit less.

  3. Christmas Carol, a tall gaunt figure, cowled hiding its features symbolising the future possibilities.
    Where you living? Anywhere near an earthquake zone?

  4. at first sarcasm was detected,so,it cleared,may be a portent or sign of trouble.
    Disbelief is the cruel killer of reality.when you believe it will just disappear.
    it may also be just a spell cast upon you,which you correct by facing anyone you slighted.
    I don,t understand remark of troll? that is a figure?I suggest you read up on the conquests of evil.
    this will help any notions of threats.in my humble opinion?may have been a harmless dream.
    Not.then it must likely left.it returns? hujjfo

  5. To dream about the death of a loved one, suggests that you are lacking a certain aspect or quality that the loved one embodies. Ask yourself what makes this person special or what you like about them. It is that very quality that you are lacking in your own relationship or circumstances. Alternatively, the dream indicates that whatever that person represents has no part in your own life anymore. In particular, to dream about the death of your parents, indicates that you are undergoing a significant change in your waking life. Your relationship with your parents has evolved into a new realm.
    To dream that you are faking your own death, suggests that you are looking for a new start. You need some change in your life.
    To dream that you die in your dream, symbolizes inner changes, transformation, self-discovery and positive development that is happening within you or your life. You are undergoing a transitional phase and are becoming more enlightened or spiritual. Although such a dream may bring about feelings of fear and anxiety, it is no cause for alarm as it 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. You may feeling depressed or feel strangled by a situation or person in your waking life. Perhaps your mind is preoccupied with someone who is terminally ill or dying. Alternatively, you may be trying to get out of some obligation, responsibility or other situation. You are desperately trying to escape from the demands of your daily life.
    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
