I am sure this is a scenario a lot of us share in our dreams:

You are going down a flight of stairs, then for some reason you either trip or miss a step, you then go tumbling down and right when you are about to hit the ground, BAM you wake up.

Curiously something interesting happened recently. I was having a similar dream where I fell down from the second floor in a house, I didn't wake up and crashed right through. I still remember the distinct feeling of my eyesight blurring, sounds buzzing and I was dug into broken planks of wood. The last thing I remember was trying to get up using my hands when I woke up

So my question, have any of you had a dream something bad was about to happen to you, and it ACTUALLY happened rather than you waking up beforehand?

Getting torn to pieces as I was eaten alive by nightmarish wolf-life creatures. That's always fun.

In all honesty, most times I just take on an iron skin aspect in my dreams. Whether a train hits me, I fall a great distance, or I'm being shot at, it seems to do the trick for me not dying in dreams until I'm ready to wake up.

If I interfere much more than that I just wake up anyway.

Oh my that sounds pretty insane.

Incidentally can you actually tell that you are dreaming within a dream? I hear that is something very few people can do and sometimes can actually allow you to control aspects of your dream

Now that would be quite interesting.

Yeah, there was a dream I had a fair amount when I was younger. I was in the front passenger seat of a car, and something would happen, I didn't know what, and it would cause the car to go over the edge of the bridge we were on. I even remember feeling the falling sensation, and waking up right before hitting the water.

Yes, I can control my dreams .. sometimes. I realize I'm dreaming about 66% of the time, more or less.

It's fun to just get taken along for the ride, usually. Lucid dreams are very, very difficult to maintain for extended periods of time, though, and I usually wind up with a headache if I stress over keeping one going for too long. Seriously, an actual headache once I've woken up!

I remember I would often panic and want to take advantage of an opportunity to fly when I was dreaming at various points. I still do sometimes. Flying with just your body feels "wobbly". The solution is simply to will myself to have some nice stereotypical angel wings. Controlling them is also insanely difficult, but rewarding if you actually manage to take off. The kind of imagery the subconscious mind can produce while airborn is breathtaking.

But just like a videogame whose engine is being pushed too far, it greatly increases the chance of a "crash" if you're not careful, and you'll just end up waking up.

The feeling of a lucid dream is literally like your brain is walking on the blade's edge of staying asleep and waking up. Some of these lucid dreams I can only get to last about 5 minutes, and others have lasted hours.

All in all, I've discovered my dreams are very, very closely attached to the way I feel emotionally. If I ever feel "oh no, what if I fall? .. " .. you bet your sorry ass I'm suddenly plummeting to my death a moment later. it really is that fickle. I feel things into existence in dreams, not rationalize them.

I have a good chuckle at the people who believe if you die in your dreams, you die in RL. Like they'd really know?

Anytime I fall in my dreams I wake up even if I trip over a rock I wake up cover in sweat and a heart that is beating fast >3<

I remember falling down some steps and instead of hitting the ground I kept falling into nothingness and when I woke up I had this sinking feeling in my chest.

When I was really young, I was running around in the Mario world with a big blob running after me. I fell of a cliff and was eaten by a T-Rex, a dream no 5-year old could face.

Did you die in the dream or?

I've had a bunch of dreams, where I experienced my own death. The weird part is that in all of those dreams, I always end up in the SAME EXACT place. The death is always different (falling, crash, explosion, whatever), but what happens after I die always is the same.

It's a cold, dark, place. I can walk endlessly without seeing anything or anyone else. I can hear sounds of screams, and feel a cold wind, but it's hopeless. The 'sky' and all around are completely black. The ground is ghostly gray color. There is no one there, but myself. It's a terrible place.

It's strange, most people wake up the second they are going to die in their dream. I never wake up. The dream continues, and I die every time.

I think there's medicine for that.

It's not common for me to have a dream like that, but over the years the after death part was always the same. I wake up in the afterlife part of the dream. I think that's the strange part.

Maybe the dream is trying to tell you something.
