The obvious answer is yes because they find out medically that they are terminal. Others are aware that their soul is readying itself for flight by or through their sensory perceptions. This is a sort of awareness or "knowingness" that comes before the intellectual knowing. There is a great book about this entitled "Final Gifts" and authored by a couple hospice nurses.
Yes, my Son informed me saying, "I won't be on this earth much longer" 2 weeks later he died at 35
Yes, I believe people know when they are going to die. Especially,
the people with a relationship with the most highest regardless to
what you may call him. God, Virgin Mary etc. But one forgets we
are dying daily. We live to die.
I agree, yes, a personal relationship also faith in God, Virgin Mary that blessing & gift from above makes one know when they and those they love will not be on this earth much longer.
I guess it depends on the circumstance and the person. Some people can feel the death coming on while others don't even have a clue
I think all of us have some sort of premonition ability however some are more in tune with it than others. To some it's a surprise and to others, they just know. There is no explanation for this, all I know is when it's your time, it's your time and nothing can change that.
Maybe she was aware of a gloomy prognosis from her physician, or it was depending on how she felt inside in terms of the extent of pain or other symptoms exhibited but there is no way of knowing this other than that.
I disagree from experience.......
you are still alive so that goes to show
From experiences with knowing some one you love will die soon, that's how I know.....
Much of the man he knows sometimes on the verge of death, but the emergence of sudden death is no longer precedents warn of the approaching death
Yes, i think people do have signs before they die, but a lot of us might not pay it any attention. Even though we know that death happens very suddenly. I had someone who kind o knew they were going to past, so they begin to change their lifestyle before it happens. So yes they know.
I knew about a year & a half before my Son died & so did he but there's some things you try to shake off & do not want to believe.
I don't know about most people, but both my parents knew
A lot of people seem to know when their end is nigh. Even young and healthy people often make out of place comments that later seem oddly prophetic. Many slowly dying from old age and illness report being visited by dead family and friends. Some see angels.
Yes, as did my young & healthy Son who died of a pulmonary embolism at 35..
People not possible to know it when they will die.Some times people know it ;if they are ill for long time and not possible to remedy as like some cancer or aids.Then there is no way to do anything.It is really mater of sorrow.
If you die of old age I believe you do know when you are going to die.
I think it was George Bernard Shaw who said,"Death is the one experience we get no practice at",i suppose we all possess a "fifth sense"knowing when something is going to befall us especially healthwise.
People don't know when they don't ie for it will happen. Now consider a group of people going somewhere for a camp, while riding on the bus the driver of the bus lost control, then suddenly the bus throw into cliff and all dies. No one can accurately determine his own death before it happened. Our own subjective perception about this thing cannot be trusted because no one knows what is happened to a person ahead of time even thought he or she had plenned it beforehand. For example, later I will be going to school, and I will ride a taxi going there, yet I do not know what would happen to along the way. Only I know is that I will going to school and riding taxi, but don't know what will be the plate numbers of the taxi I wil be riding. So in the case of subjective perception of ones death, it unbelievable to believe it because it has no accurate proof in real world.
It's pure & simple, my Son told me he would not be on the earth soon. He was healthy but I also had that feeling so I took it to heart. When he said he had a cold is was a blood clot in his lung....died at 35
no did not know when they diejhhgcnfxgrfsx
I Don't Know About This Article. Pls Help me what is the exact ans
Of course it depends on the circumstances and your definition of "when". (i.e. I have a strange feeling that I am going to die in the next 100 years), However, there are many remarkable cases of people who knew that they would die prior to their deaths due to "unnatural causes" (i.e. bullets. (i.e. Abraham Lincoln supposedly saw his doppelganger prior to his death) )
But I assume you mean in general and in people who maybe aren't in the best of health. For that my answer is a big ol' yup. For those of you who have heard stories in which an elderly person was told by their doctors that "they were sure she would be fine, and the she died." To that I say consider the context. How would you like it if your doctor told you
"I have no evidence of your mother's impending death, but I've got a really bad feeling, and I think she does too because she's talking like this is gonna be it... soooo we're still on for surgery right?"
If you don't believe me ask any emergency room doc, ICU physician or cardiologist what "cardiac grey" looks like. Then watch this haunted look fill their eyes because if you know what I'm talking about you know it is the worst. It's the look of death. Technically speaking "ashen grey skin" is a symptom of shock, which often represents cardiovascular decompensation and failure, but there's a variable period of time where a person won't be in shock (the body's last ditch effort to get blood to the brain), but they won't look right either, and before that I assume there's a period of time where a person just doesn't feel right.
It's never a sure thing, but when you put together the history, the situation, and all of the unconscious clues, OFTEN the people closest to a dying person who have the most experience with dying people get a pretty good idea about when the end is near, and very often it's the person who is actually dying who knows the best.
I think that if you are suffering with an illness it may be possible or the person may wish it. But I don't think anyone can know this. They might have a premonition of it. It is impossible right?
I, too, believe that they know ahead of time. My grandfather's death came unexpectedly, yet he sensed it was coming and made peace with his family members the night before his passing.
My Mother knew when my Father would die even though he wasn't sick. Also, I knew my healthy Son would die at 35, 10 days before xmas.
yes and no. People who know are those with terminal illnesses, who have had accidents that have left them in very bad shape and the aged. In most cases death just happens, without a warning. Everyone knows that death is inevitable that's why people write wills. Living is a risk, one day you exist the next you don't and that's the beauty of life there is no certainty.
My Mother knew my Dad would die & he was not sick, she had a dream of him in a casket. I knew my Son would die even though he wasn't sick. He had a blood clot & died at 35.
If you live righteously you are entitled to know all things. Certainly how long you have left to live would be at the top of the list. A grandfather in our family had such knowledge to the day and the hour and filled those last six weeks with what remained to be done. Then he lay down, folded his arms, and peacefully moved on into eternity.
My Mother had a very vivid dream that my healthy Father would die & actually seen him in his coffin a week after he retired. He indeed did die 1 week after he retired at 60.
My mother came to visit me and upon her return home I telephoned her as I usually did. She did not appear poorly at all during her visit to my home. We had the best laugh of our lives. On that phone call when she had left me she was totally different and distressed and told me she didn't feel very well and would never be coming to my home again as she was going to die. I said 'mother please don't say things like that and she said 'listen to me I just know, now look after yourself and look after your boys. She was taken to hospital and died 3 weeks later. Yes I think she knew!
Last year, a friend of my mother's, who was
very cheery and out-going and loved to go out a lot till the early morning, died in a car crash. The thing is, a month before her death her actions began to change slowly. She stopped going out all of a sudden and started to pray a lot and dedicate herself to God which you would have found shocking if you knew her (because she was never the type of person who took God seriously). Also, she started visiting my mum and all her other friends way more, making sure they were okay and happy. She was a very loving, caring person, but this month especially she was way too caring and then the accident happened. To sum it up, I think there're special cases when people just 'know' their time is coming soon, but they just don't talk about it to anyone, so I guess it's true.
Having just witnessed the death of my father, who had Alzheimers, I would say yes in some cases and no in others. It depends on the cause of death.
I would agree with most of the comments here, I believe you know when your going to die
I knew my grandmother before she died. I treasured every moment with her.
I do think that people know when their time has come. There's always little hints they show. When my grandmother died she became very calm and serene the couple days leading up to it, which was in stark contrast to the look of pain and worry on her face weeks before.
People won't know obviously if death is sudden, but those suffering from a chronic illness will definitely get the sense that time's running out. I must say that there's been eerie coincidences of people who almost knew they were going to die that day when sudden death occurs. It's like they already were given signs of their destiny, which could be viewed as spiritual or unusual depending on what you believe.
I really believe that someone told me without a doubt that my Son would die and was preparing me for it. I give thanks for them everyday for I would've never been able to hold up otherwise.
Have you ever played chess? It is one of those games that if the two people know what they are doing, someone else experienced with chess, while watching the game, can predict the outcome, often with perfect results. I think some people, who may die in the future from an accident, their brain somehow can see it coming. They may feel then that their death is coming up soon. The brain can become so visually sensitive that it sees how certain events are unfolding. The person may not know it exactly, but certain events are being processed by the brain, in my opinion, in an effort to save itself, in regards to the impending accident.
I believe we are all programed before we're born. Some people remember the program somewhat, some don't.
A lot of people that is about to die, either see their friends, love ones or angel of death here waiting for them
It is said that if one feels like seeing dead one(more probably in his own family),then he is going to die soon....
I think so. I remembered when my grandfather died he told his children to take care of their mother. I think he knew that he was going to leave this mortal world.
Absolutely NYC, people surely know when their time's up........
Nope. They don't know. Only they lose hope .
My healthy Son, out of no where, told me he wasn't going to be on the earth much longer. For 2 weeks that's what he said & 3 weeks later he was dead.
nobody knows that in other sec they alive or not even the cancer patient dont know its die or survive
This is illogical question and asked only for showing credits.
Those who have never experienced a forewarning, omen, premonition do not think that they exist .....but they do indeed.....
I really do not think this the case but yes sometimes those who follow are religion and posses special insight they get an idea.
As i know the majority of people doen't know about the news of die but as i following is lslam there is some examples in which the person became knew about it but usually we don't know about it.
For me, if I have any say. I've had live visions of my food being maggots. Which somethings point to the ends of things. A sense of my body is going to sustain other forms of life. Should life continue? Maybe I need to read more inspiring books.
Yes. I believe that they do know and as a nurse in the past I have watched people prepare by calling family members or with certain psychological characteristics. These included nervousness, a sense of doom, overwhelming dread, peaceful content with the circumstances, and even telling family members to stay at home and not to bother seeing them. I know that it sounds strange but people do sense death. Image it is sort of like nesting syndrome with expected mothers. Death isn't something to be feared and when people have proper education and knowledge about the topic transitions can happen smoothly. A lot of patients I witnessed die felt that something was wrong and they "couldn't put their finger on it." I know that sounds like a weird quote but many people actual stated it. "Something is going to happen." Another common theme in near death events. I think in many regards validating these comments can help patients and also alter healthcare workers and family that something may occur. It does take an observant clinician or family member to point out that behaviors and statements don't match the personality of the patient.
I know the new doomsday personality my Son developed, who was not sick, was depressing me. He was saying "I'm not going to be on earth very much longer." He died 1 year later from Pulmonary Embolism from DVT & was a marathon walker. He was 35....
No, people don't know about their death because I examined many people around me who were absolutely fit before they die and a sudden and an unexpected death caught them
Right, a lot of people do not know.....however, I know many people who knew they would die including my Son who was healthy at 35
After thinking about it, I guess we do know, one way or the other.
When you die naturally, you can see it. People move a little bit slower. They struggle with normal things. Their body begins to shut down. I guess, when the effects of aging really hits you, you recognize your own mortality and make amends in your life. Then you die.
Other times, it's accidental or unseen. Like, if someone is dying of an unknown disease, but are completely unaware, they live their life as if they aren't dying. Maybe you get run over. These things cannot be predicted, and cannot be accounted for, so in that case, no, you don't know when you are going to die.
But I also believe that you at least have several seconds to think "wow, I am dying right now" in accidental situations. The amends part doesn't happen quite as smoothly, but maybe a bit of self-forgiveness happens.
Either way, you feel the process happening. You feel your body shutting down.
I do think some people know they are going to die before it happens. Of course, if a person is sick, he or she is bound to know they are going to pass away soon. But I have heard many stories of people that start preparing for their own deaths about 6 months (or less) before it actually happens.
Many cultures talk of elders knowing when it is their time. My grandfather recently passed away. Shortly beforehand, he said life was not living with the quality of life he had. Likewise, my grandmother requested we celebrate her 88th birthday by inviting all her friends. And, they all came. She passed on to Heaven two weeks after that.
I believe not only do people know, they also have some decision making involved.
some how but not sure because only those people know if they are indulged in a serious disease or trouble whatever and if you ask that what are the other symptoms of being dying so its up to God not in our knowledge that's it
All death is suicide. Ideally you want to pass on in old age having done all you wanted to do. Premature deaths with enough pent up desire can lead to an abrupt reincarnation. You bring your desires with you but take on the memories of the new body you inhabit.
if that is your logic then all of life is suicide since living perpetuates death. Driving a car, walking in the road, and eating bad food. Life sometimes ends premature but some know that there is something wrong.
You are correct. But it's not MY logic. Look, I believed the lie too. This is truth: people have the capability to create their own death by choosing to believe it is coming. They call it premonition but that's just NOT what it is.
We weren't asked to be born...but here we are anyway. We don't ask to die but we die anyway because Someone Higher is in control and it's part of the Divine plan.
I know all of the dead were always feel the approaching death of them. Many of them will be keen to see his family for the last time and recommended some close to him things likes to be found after his
death. But there is the sudden death of such died in a car accident or a heart attack surprising. In the end they go along with this secret .. Do they already feel death?
yeah, they actually get to know when they are going to die. There are cases where people dream about their death. The present generations do not believe in dreaming about death. So i would definitely say that people get to know before they die. Whereas few people express their feelings and few just sit silently and get depressed.
My Mom dreamed my Dad would die when he retired. To make it short, my Dad didn't get to cash his retirement check, he died just like my Mom dreamed he would.
I just commented and said pretty much the same thing
Impossible thing. How a person knows about his death ?
Death is always an unexpected thing. But one thing is that, if a person always thinks that he is going to die, and if he strongly believe this statement, then his mind prepares his body for death. It's all about brain.
No one know when they will die but every one know they will die one day
so dont think for that day when you die.
I believe that most of us have a pretty good idea of the coming of our death if we are ill and not overly drugged. Some people may even have an intuitive knowledge that enables them to foresee even a tragic death. Blessing to all, and may you live long. Bobby

I've read about many different theories about death and what happens. It is the main question that is in the back of everyone's mind. It's very difficult to picture it or to question the point of existence. The fact that we are here is a miracle in itself, who says that some sort of afterlife isn't...

For the very many years I was in Church attendance, the Kingdom of God was always equated with Heaven. It was a future event that only those who believed in Jesus would see either when they died or were raptured, whilst the remainder of humanity would go to hell. A Christian could be disqualified...

I know that kind of falls outside the Christians versus atheists ongoing theme of the religion section here, but I thought I'd just offer it up as a bit of reality. This is what I believe: Life is hard and then you die. You can either be kind to others and try to alleviate suffering while you're...

What is the meaning of life?

Michael Jackson it appeared made a speech and released things near his death that he never did before, did he have a feeling that he was going to die?, was someone threatening him?, was he murdered? and is he worth more since his death than when he was alive?
