Watching people die

December 24, 2015

One of the negative side effects of being awake/conscious during many of my dreams is that a few times a year I get to be with “people” as they die. This morning was one of those days.

In a dream this morning there was a small group of people with a woman who was breathing with something like an oxygen mask on. Then she suddenly stopped breathing. A doctor was there at the time and said something like, “No, this can’t be happening,” but the woman slumped over and died. I should say that I think she died because she did flatline, but the shock of it almost instantly woke me up.

The only other details I can recall about this is that my second sister was there at the time, and she came over to me as the woman flatlined. In the dream I had the impression that the woman who died was my mother, but when I woke up I realized that she looked nothing like my mother, or more accurately, the woman was much younger than my mother is currently.
