    This is a great question, and all of these comments have been a great read ! I myself have never had any experiences such as some of the ones described, however I do believe that some people can feel that their death is near.

    I remember many years ago I was hanging out with two friends and one of my friends stepped out for a moment.  Out of nowhere my other friend began to ask me if I've ever thought about what it would be like if I died.  I thought it was a strange thing to bring up but I just answered him by saying that those thoughts don't really cross my mind or they rarely do. He began talking about it more and expressing that he's been thinking about it lately and that he didn't know why.  He said that sometimes he wondered what it felt like or thought it would happen to him sooner than expected.  I told him not to think this way because we were young.  He continued to express that he felt he would die soon and he didn't know why he felt this way.  At that time, we were only about 19 or so.  He talked about it some more but we didn't get too deep into the conversation when my other friend came back.  The very next day, he was walking down the street and someone shot and killed him.  No one ever found out who did it or why.  But the first thing that raced back to my mind is the conversation we had.  It was as if he sensed he would die.  It was strange.

    I do not know the answer to this question because none of the ones who had died ever came back to tell the story.

    The funny thing about dying is that almost everyone wants to go to heaven but nobody wants to die.

    My friend came to visit me about a week before he died. This wasn't too unusual.  Although I lived a couple of small towns away from him, we still visited every few months.
    He often wore a fringed leather jacket.  On this day, as he turned to walk away after we said our goodbye's at my door, a soft light radiated from his head and shoulders.  I thought to myself, 'He looks like an Angel'.  He died about a week after that visit.  I realised then, that even if we are not aware on a conscious level, the Universe knows when our time is up.  In speaking with many friends after his death, I learned he had stopped in unexpectedly to say hi to many of them in the couple of weeks preceding his departure from the planet. Perhaps he had a premonition of his death.

    Yes and no. Some people know when they are going to die, and some people just don't. It's luck of the draw I suppose. Now, depending on how soon they are to death, then it probably depends. But I remember my Mom telling me a story about one such instance. My Grandfather used to own and operate a bar. There was a man, whose name I cannot recall, who was a daily regular at my Grandfathers bar, he was fairly old, well, past middle age anyways. One day, whilst he was drinking, he called out "I'm going Mike (my Grandfather's name), I'm going..." And my Grandfather asked, "Where, where are you going, you just got here." And the man collapsed, and died, right on the spot.

    Our mind is stronger than our body. We all understand although try to put at the back of our mind, that somewhere in the future death awaits for all of us.
    People, who despair, who lost a purpose in their lives often stop functioning in their daily function, often bringing the activities needed for survival to a stop. Knowledge of death is for them welcoming way out and in times of an accident or illness they decide to succumb to their predicament.
    People, whose earthly tasks are unfinished, knowledge of death have to emerge side by side with the persistent ability to picture a bright future. In times of an accident or illness they imagine their way out and often seem to take a dramatic turn for the better.
    To some extent we can predict our own ending, although there are aways exceptions...

    Situation dictates. I'm sure that everyone knows death is imminent at least for a fraction of a second. Of course, knowing days or weeks in advance is honestly quite incredible. I'm sure the meta-physical types will be able to shed some light on this.

    Yes, many people have known that their death was imminent. There really is no explanation across the board for this. But there are cases, of course, when fatal diseases take lives, and in these cases the persons fade away with the knowledge of their own deaths occurring. Some of them actually hold on until that last family member has arrived to say goodbye, and then let go.

    I would say yes if it were someone elderly and of ill health, I would say yes if it is someone in a 747 plummeting from 20,000 feet in a plane crash, guess it would depend on the situation. I'm not one to think that any healthy person sitting in their living room would get a premonition that they will die tomorrow at noon, Know what I mean?

    I can say yes. My fiance, paralyzed and on life support for 3 years often said he was going to die, was dying etc.  The last few weeks of his life, again, he was acting funny, and the things he said and dead, looking back I know why now.

    But, one particular night, he had me up all night long, crying, telling me he was dying, was going to die etc. He refused to go to hospital. He had told me once before,  he would never die in hospital, he was going to die at home.

    Within hours of my lying down, I was woke up by his vent alarms. I called 911, started CPR, etc. Michael had passed away. No physical signs of anything wrong. But he said, I am dying, I won't be here......

    A dear friend of mine, who called me his "free shrink", had a nightmare 24 hrs before he died. He said that his father came to him & grabbed at his arm, telling him that he needed him to go, & kept tugging at him, "come on Lee, it's time to go!" Lee told him that he didn't want to go, he wanted to stay w/Linda. Lee woke up on the morning of Sept. 11, 2011, & told his fiance his nightmare. Then on the morning of Sept. 12, 2011, Linda woke up about 3:30am, & saw Lee sitting at his computer playing his FB games. Linda asked him if he's coming to bed soon. Lee told her that the neighbor's loud music woke him up at 12:30am, as it was blaring thru his walls. He went out to the bathroom & found his nephew walk out of the bathroom w/a belt wrapped tightly around his arm, as he'd just finished shooting up heroine. His nephew could tell that Lee was very upset, & asked him what's wrong. He told him about the music, & his nephew said he'd talk to the neighbors about it. He said they only turned it down slightly. Then Lee told her that he just wanted to finish up his FB game & then he'd lay down w/her. He also said: "You know, Linda, I really love you!" & she replied: "I really love you, too, Lee!" Then Linda fell back asleep. She then woke up at 5:30am & found him dead in his chair.

    the night before my grandmother passed away, she told me that she might not be alive for a certain future meeting that we were planning.
    and the night my grandfather passed away, he said that he was going to pass away that night. sometimes it seems that people know somehow.
    at the time, we told them that of course they would be alive, but it turned out that they actually did pass away.

    It depends. I reckon the majority of the time it's a slow decline and only the person in decline would know what's going to happen... But instantaneous deaths occur sometimes - like a sudden heart attack for example, but leading a lifestyle to produce such an attack is quite contradicting...

    My father was only 50 when he passed away 6 foot tall strong man.  2 months before he passed I asked him to help me move the fridge from the back room to the garage.  He usually would say no problem and do it.  I saw him hesitate this time.  I said dad don,t worry about it.  He got up and scratched his head went to the back room hooked the fridge to the dolly and moved it.  I felt a worried feeling and asked him is everything ok health wise he said he was fine.  He died of organ failure in his sleep.

    My mother passed away 3 months ago and I believe she knew she was going to die. Five days before she passed she asked the nurse (she was in a nursing home) if she was dying? That same day she said to me, "I have to let you go, but it'll be okay". A few days prior to this she appeared to be looking around a lot like she was seeing something. I asked her if she was seeing "anyone" and she said, "yes, but I can't do it".
    It is my thought she was seeing angels and they were telling her it was time to go home but my mom wasn't ready just yet. So not only do I believe some people know when they are going to die, I believe to a point they can chose when.

    About 3 weeks before my father passed away, he called me over to him so he could tell me something.  He specifically told me "I feel like I'm dying."  After sharing this with my mother, she said that he had said the same exact thing to her earlier that morning too.  We both dismissed it, however, due to the fact that he would occassionally say something strange or odd that didn't make any sense.  To be on the safe side, we had a nurse come out to our home to check out my dad the next day.  She looked him over and checked his vitals and said he seemed to be fine.  The very next morning after the nurse examined him, my father woke up running a fever and had blood in his catheter.  After arriving at the hospital, we were told he had pneumonnia, kidney failure and blood poisoning.  He lived 3 more weeks to the day after arriving at the hospital that morning.  It was one week ago yesterday that my father passed.  When I think about him telling us he felt like he was dying, it is so painful.  But now I know he must have known something and was trying to share it with my mother and I.

    I had lived away from my parents/ family for 2 years.

    I would get these "premonitions" of my brother calling me to tell me that my dad had collapsed and "it did not look good". For a span over a year or so. The thoughts would just enter into my head for no reason.

    Well, it did happen. Except it was my mom and not my dad.  Both had been in great health for their ages except for a few minor things.  My mother had a congenital heart condition but she had had no problems with it (dysrhythmias) in years and was doing great.

    Now I just went to get a beer out of the mini refrigerator and the thought hit me that I may not make to age 50.  I would love to be with God, so very very much,  but I have a loving husband and a 14 year old son who love and depend on me. Because of that,  I fear.

    I believe people know when they are going to die.  My 19 year old son went out on his birthday and, out of character, told me how much he loved me, and was grateful for all i had done for him, this unsettled me as this was unusual for him.  He told me to be happy and he would always be with me.  That night he was killed by a guy high on drugs and drink, one punch and he was gone.  Devastated as we were, when going through my sons belongings a few weeks later, i found a sympathy card to ME, it said, so sorry i have to leave you mum, love you, very scary to think my child knew he was going to die.  Miss u Gary xxxx

    I cant really answer your question, but I would like to say in some sort of way they know, but may not be aware that they know. My son was killed almost 2 years. He was 2 weeks from being 21. A month before his accident he and got into a conversation that lead to him telling me. Mom you never know when you might go and proceeded to tell me of all his wishes for his funeral. I truly believe it was an open door to helping me deal with this tragic accident. Hope you find the answer you are looking for.

    I think everyone knows from day one how long they will live. Elvis told everyone he would die at 42 just like his Mother, he did. My Mother kept telling my Father that she didn't want him to retire. I asked her why she felt like that. She said she had a dream that my father died. She dreamed that at his wake someone came to her and said "The guy just retired." She told my Dad about it and he told her who the guy was. My Dad retired and the next day he died. The same guy came to the wake & said "The guy just retired," just like her dream. My cousin was young,35, active, not sick at all yet he was telling us that he doesn't care about the economy because he would be gone soon. He also talked a lot about the end of the world. When I was with him about a year before he died I said to myself, it's a shame it's not going to end well for him & he will die soon. I kept feeling this way every time I was in his company. Then 3 days before he died he said "It will be all over for me soon" I was in shock but never said anything. Three days later he died from a blood clot.

    I think without a doubt our souls know and we subconsciously know when it's "our time". Only 3 weeks ago my father was killed in a car accident. My brother and I spent the day with him and my mother the day before. Out of no where that night, he told my mom "you don't have to worry, if anything were to ever happen to me, our sons will take care of you". The very next day he was like I said killed in an auto accident. My mom said he's never said anything like that in his life to her. He was 65. A great great man.

    I came across this from a Google search, because my behavior has been unusual the last few months. From the other responses, it's clear certain people know when they're about to die. I was prompted to search for answers to the question from what I myself have been experiencing. For a few months now I've felt like things were ”off”, I'm ill but not with anything life threatening. Lately, my actions have been as though I'm wrapping up my affairs. Among other things I've tried to deepen my connection to family, communicating more, getting in more quality time. It wasn't until late last night that the thought popped into my head that I'm not going to live to see the end of the year, or at least something life changing is about to happen.  I'm not taking any of this too seriously, otherwise I'd see my doctor before my physical next month. But after seeing this thread, I'll admit, it has frightened me!

    Generally people don't know the exact time of their death. If there is a prolonged disease, then they are able to guess how long it would take before they die. If a person is all healthy and well, he doesn't know the time. Something sudden could happen to him and if everything goes well, he may live his whole time. It is hard to guess the exact time of one's death. I think this is very basic to the continuity of life. If one knows that he is going to die after two days, though he is all healthy, he would not be able to do anything normal.

    There are some people who have an uncanny ability to know when they are dying.  There are others who state that before we incarnate, the soul knows when we are going to die.  Other people have vivid dreams relating to this scenaric phenomena. Others JUST KNOW..... I remember asking my father in September 1990 what he wanted for Christmas, he stated that he probably WON'T be alive by Christmas.  I was jolted, telling him to stop.  He looked at me deadly serious; by the end of October 1990, he was dead!

    To be true, no body can know if he is going to die, he can only guess that he is going to die soon due to his illness and due to his age.If one person who is attacked by several diseases at a time, he will know now is his time because he could not heal from all those diseases.But in some rare cases it happens.The people come to know they are going to die soon.I knew a person, his father lived and worked in Dubai.His father had a dream. in dream "he was digging a grave for his son". and soon after like 1 month his son died.
    But not everybody knows about when he is going to die

    The Reality is no one could depicts their actual death time or moment. But even after that there have been some special persons in the world who died depicting the actual or nearby time of their death. I have seen the real example of it once in my life. It was very much unbelievable. But its true. It normally happens with those guys who are special to God and who have unlimited mercy by God.

    My Dad's older brother did this very thing, although in the middle of an obvious personal emergency.  He had grown very depressed over the years since his wife left him and he had gained a great deal of weight.  One day in Jan 2008 he collapsed from a heart attack.  The paramedics arrived and resuscitated him and told him that he needed to continue breathing on his own.  He refused and immediately died. 

    I realize that he was already on the cusp of the death experience, but this is something that many people might not have chosen.  I do believe barring extreme circumstances, that death is a choice.

    No one knows the day or the time of their death per say. Now, I do agree that people that are terminally ill with cancer or some other terminal disease, can sense when or know when their going to die. But, for the population in general, no no one knows the exact time they will leave this earth. If God had of made us with the knowledge to know when, where, and how we were to die life won't be worth living because we would be to preoccupied with trying to change our fate. Therefore, I feel their would be no need for faith or religion as far as that is concerned. I would rather not know when I was going to die even if I didn't have a terminal illness, because I would be down and sad and depressed everyday.

    A few months ago I dreamt of my grandfather who raised me when I was younger (he passed away a few years ago) it felt so real, we were standing in a trail he used to take me for walks in (in my dream it was winter, everything was white because all the snow). I hugged him, I was very happy when he'd come see me I dreamt of him often we were very close he was a very good man with a good heart I've never met anyone else like him. we talked for a long time then as the conversation was ending he said "I'll be seeing you very soon, you'll be fine." and he left, leaving tracks in the snow as he walked away. I didn't think anything of it till a couple nights ago, I dreamt of my bestfriend Joslyn (who had passed away last year) she came to me and said "hey I came to tell you, that your coming home very soon" my heart dropped and Immediately I said "no." "yes, silly. you have to come home soon." she said, assuring me. I was confused and asked "what do you mean Joslyn?" I wanted to cry. she just gave me a mirror with a handle on it, I looked at myself and my face was frozen. I could see the frost bite all over my face, I was blue with dark purple around my eyes. I looked at her and she just smiled and nodded then walked away. I'm not sure what this means? but it made me think of the dream I had about my grandpa a few months back. anyone know what this could mean?

    My father died a few years ago. He had reached the age of 89. My mother who was named Violet had died two years earlier at the age of 81, they had been married for 60 years. My father had been feeling low and tired for some weeks. He had been asleep overnight, on waking he said to his carer; 'Can you shave me please I'm going to see Violet' The carer said she would and called me to visit his residential care home. I arrived fifty minutes later. By then my father had died.
    A separate issue if I may. If your parents become old and infirm, hold on to them they need you more than you know. If you have to cater for their every need, then do it regardless of embarrassment you will all get over that. There might come a time when you just cannot cope any longer and a care home is the only option. I was physically unable to cope with both my wonderful loving parents, parents who gave their all for me. With  broken hearts both my parents went together into a care home. I still weep with guilt, my heart is still broken. Hold on to them and don't you ever let them down.

    Some holly specially,people  understand it.
    My grandmother in her two last days,didn't have contact of the environment and all the time,she was telling "what amazing town".!!!
    Also Orthodoxs tell that if you read every day,the holy epistle, three days before you
    die, you see the Lady of world in your dream.

    I truly believe that they do.  My son told me  " I think I'm going to die soon" about 2 or 3 weeks before his passing in an automobile accident.  I didn't take much notice of it cause my dad passed young and I always believe I would too, and I told him that.  How I wish I would have asked him why, why he felt that way.

      So many people at the funeral said that they hadn't seen Luke in so many years but for some reason they had communicated, either saw or talked to him just before.  I like to think that he was saying his goodbyes.
