Dream about a alive person being dead is a hint for poor health. Someone in your social circle may not have your best interest in mind. Others can depend on you, especially during difficult times. Your dream signifies trying to compensate for your own lack of self-confidence. You are trying to cut your problems into smaller, more manageable sizes.
A alive person being dead signals a lack of spirituality in your life
You may be trying to elevate yourself to a higher level of consciousness. You are not letting the negativity get to you. The dream is a message for a false sense of security. You are not taking life's issues and problems seriously enough.
