Death is part of life and as human beings, we must learn to deal with it and with our feelings of loss and own grief.
But we still cannot deny that the death of a child is one of the worst tragedies we could face.
That is why when you dream of having lost your child, you wake up with anxiety and anguish in your heart. What can it mean? Are my children in danger? Is there something I am doing wrong? Should I protect them in some way?
Such dreams related to the death of your child, may not be as terrible as you imagine.
In this article, we will see the meanings of dreaming about the death of the child and the possible variants of the dream and its interpretation.
The Meaning Of Seeing Your Child Die In A Dream
When a child’s life ends, a wave of emotions is generated in all the relatives close to that life that has just ended. Dreaming of that reality is not far from the suffering and pain it can cause in real life.
We could say that it is one of the most distressing and painful nightmares that exist. But the good thing about the dream world is that not always everything that seems to be reality is reality.
One of the most common reasons to dream of the death of your child is that he must have reached some point of maturity or is entering a new stage of his life where he will no longer need you so much.
We must remember that children are gifts that life gives us, but our role is to prepare them so that they can live their own lives. So when we feel or show that they no longer need us, there is no reason to feel sad or depressed.
On the contrary, the more independent we see them and the greater their desire to live life, the happier we should be since that indicates that we did our mission well.
But is that perhaps the only meaning of dreaming that your children die? No. There are other meanings and variants in the dream that can give us much more information about the message of our subconscious. Here are some of them.
1. You are about to reach an important milestone
Dreams of children dying can be some of the most traumatic that exist. But the dream book gives us good news and tells us that they are not necessarily a misfortune to come, quite the opposite.
You are about to achieve your goals and you are very close to achieving them. It can also symbolize that you are about to have a birthday or you are moving on to another stage of your life, a much more mature and conscious one.
Remember that in the world of dreams, deaths are related to life, with transformations, the ending of difficult times, and new beginnings rather than disastrous and tragic events.
2. Your inner child is dying
Another possible not-so-good interpretation is that of the loss of your inner child.
If you have dreamed that a child is dying but you are unable to identify the child and find it very bizarre, the image may be of your inner child.
It serves as a reminder to protect the innocent, uninhibited soul you carry within. Do not allow the trials of life to tarnish your spiritual chastity.
The daily grind often wears us down, and we become overwhelmed by life’s responsibilities and circumstances, ignoring what actually matters in the process. your internal self.
So pay great attention if you dream about a dying child that you don’t know because that child could be you, your inner self that fights for you to save it and preserve it intact and pure.
3. You are worried about something in your children’s lives
Children are especially during the first years the focus of energy of the parents. Bringing a child into the world is not an easy thing and one must channel a large part of their personal energy to be able to fulfill this project in a good way.
Being so connected with our children and being such an important part of our lives, your subconscious may interpret in the form of death some concern that you are having for your children in your current life.
Analyze what could be what worries you, talk about it with your partner, and try to find a solution because if your subconscious has spoken to you about it, it means that it is important and you should not let it go.
4. Anxiety about the development of our children
If you have more than one child, it is very likely that at some point you have caught yourself comparing your children.
There is nothing wrong with this if you do not intend to set standards and you understand that each child has their own process and own times. In addition, not all of us develop the same skills in the same way.
However, that does not prevent you from remembering if your first child spoke before the second or if the second has walked faster than the first.
It is possible that when you dream of the death of one of your children, the meaning is that you are worried about some essential part of your child’s development.
Remember that each of us processes life differently and some are faster than others. However, if you see that your child has serious developmental problems in some specific aspect of his life, it never hurts to consult a professional and clarify all kinds of doubts.
Still, it is most likely you worrying more about your children. It is something inevitable in the life of parents.
Variants Of Dreaming Of A Dead Child
Dreams of dead children can fill us with anguish, guilt, sadness, confusion, depression, and assumptions of a dark future for our family.
None of those feeling are necessarily true. Dreams with dead or dying children have many meanings and it is important to understand their variants to adapt the interpretation of the dream to your own reality.
Only in this way can you benefit 100% from understanding the message that your subconscious wants you to hear.
1. A child choking to death
This is a very strong image to bear, but if you have dreamed of your child dying of suffocation, the message goes directly to you.

Remember what color the water is in your dreams, as that can give you an indicator of how intense your emotions are. If, for example, the waters are cloudy and black, it means that the feelings and emotions of fear, stress, disbelief, and mistrust are drowning your life.
In this case, you need to seek moments of healing and peace for your soul.
3. A child dying in a car accident
