I have read a lot of articles and I have run across people who when we end up in this discussion are of the opinion that let's say you are dreaming you fell off a tall story building that if you didn't wake up before you hit the ground you would die. I myself feel that is a bit far feached. I do believe that dreams can give you a message but dieing because of danger in your dream I find it hard to believe. What do you folks think?

No I think it is one of these "old wives tales". If you think about it... you die in your sleep how can you tell anyone what you were dreaming about????

No I do not believe that they can I do know they say if you have a bad dream then tell someone as that stops it from happening

It is an old superstition and the medical researches say it is not true, people say a lot of crazy things. Yes dreams can warn you about stuff, I have had prophetic dreams where the future has been revealed to me.

I have also heard this. I don't know if I believe it, but since I've never been hurt in a dream I don't know. I take that back. I was sleeping away about 8 months ago & dreamed a box fell on my head. How real was this dream? I looked for the box! Our guess is that one of the cats landed on my head & hit me with some bony part of their leg that made me dream it was a box. A few months later another cat fell off the bookshelf & scratched my jaw! I want to remove their access to that bookshelf, but don't have a place to move the piece of furniture yet.

Okay maybe that is a little far fetched.I have heard of the effect of dreams causing some heart patients to have complications.I truly believe my dreams sometimes effect the way I feel when I wake up in the morning.I just find it hard to believe that I would die if I did not wake up.Well that is my opinion Have a wonderful day!!
