    Death: To dream about the death of a loved one suggests that you are lacking a certain aspect or quality that the loved one shows. Ask yourself what makes this person special or what do you like about them. It is that very quality that you are lacking in your own relationship or circumstances. Alternatively, it indicates that whatever that person represents, has no part in your own life. To dream of your own death, indicates a transitional phase in your life. You are becoming more enlightened or spiritual. Alternatively, you are trying desperately to escape the demands of your daily life. To dream of death suggests the end of one thing and the beginning of something new. It could be a new job or a new relationship.

    Violence: To see violence in your dream indicates unexpressed anger or rage. You need more discipline in your life. The dream may also reflect repressed memories of child abuse.

    Monster: To dream that you are followed by a monster signifies that grief and misfortune are in your immediate future. Monsters represent parts of yourself that you find brutish and ugly. You may possess some fears or some repressed emotions.

    Mother: To see your mother in your dream represents the nurturing aspect of your own character. Mothers offer shelter, comfort, life, guidance and protection. Some people may have problems freeing themselves from their mothers and are thus seeking their own individuality and development.

    Accident: To dream that you are in an accident signifies pent up guilt and you are sub-consciously punishing yourself over it. To dream of a car accident, symbolizes your emotional state. You may be harboring deep anxieties and fears. Are you "driving" yourself too hard? This dream may tell you to slow down before you hit disaster. You need to rethink or re-plan your course of actions and set yourself on a better path.

    Highway: To see a highway in your dream represents your sense of direction and your life's path. Consider the conditions of the highway which will reveal how much you feel in charge of your life. A smooth, straight highway signifies inner peace, while a winding, bumpy road reflects emotional distress/disharmony.

    Bar: To dream that you are at a bar signifies your desire to escape from the stresses of your daily life and retreat into a light-hearted environment where pleasure abounds. Alternatively, you are seeking for acceptance in some aspect of your daily life.

    Boyfriend: To see your boyfriend in your dream represents your waking relationship with him and how you feel about him.

    Fighting: To see others fighting in your dream suggests that you are unwilling to acknowledge your own problems and turmoil. You are not taking any responsibility or initiative in trying to resolve issues in your waking life.

    Dreams are how your subconscious is communicating with you. It has nothing to do with prediction. Dreams can have various meanings but it can be very personal. Death dreams usually occur when you are experiencing an end to something, something new is happening and you don't like it, or your subconscious is trying to reconcile something with the conscious mind. 1st you have to evaluate what's going on around you and your emotions. Is there anything dramatic or scary happening that you don't like. Was there a traumatic event that occurred? These you must ask yourself not other people. 2nd Since you can recall certain details those specific details have some meaning to you. Ex. the car crash did you ever have a traumatic event in a car. Does the car have some meaning to you. This requires insight that internet can't provide. 3rd. After the dreams how did you feel? This is important because if it was a nightmare or you could take control. The "Death = Change" is based off a pseudo science. You have to ask these questions yourself about what a dream means and explore your own meaning.

    Maybe you fear of dieing or have some unresolve issues. You may want to seek counseling or see a psychiatrist if you keep on having these dreams and can't sleep. If it's just a fleeting dreams then you'll grow out of it. I don't know how old you are but if you're a teenager or younger then you should grow out of this. It's the same as being afraid of a monster in your closet thing. Start off by Writing down everything that's bothering you in your life and see if you can resolve those issues. It may help.

    You have such as serve bad dreams.

    Being killed = give up

    Turned into monster = changes

    Boyfriend getting beaten up and get killed = guilt conscience

    Two different kinds of dream but one common meaning. You may feel insecure in life. Having dream of violence and death could mean you are giving up something in life. Having your ex-boy Friend projected to be beaten and killed is a way of anger and sign of guilt conscience. Subconsciously you can not control things in life and vent out all that in dream perhaps will give you a release of guilt and insecure conscience.

    Really it does work . Your mind is a very powerful thing use it !

    Consult a psychoanalitician is the best thing you can do.

    The dreams usually are don`t have straight meaning and they are not to be understood literally.

    It might as well mean the opposite in your consciouss mind or that you are overburdened with anxiety.




    By the way, I do not want to be intimidating, but the opinion of Thick Chick is total crap. Dreams are not direct, nor are some kind of prevision of the future.
