If it is the dreamer dying, it never has any connection to a real impending physical death. Rather, it is a reference to the need to change one’s path in life and allow old attitudes to die. Death usually means that radical change is necessary.
Basically, there are eight different levels of this symbol:
1. An indication that a necessary end has come to a certain phase.
It is a transition to something new.
2. The desire to shed something (attitudes, behavior, situation, etc.).
3. A suggestion to come to terms with death and the fear of death, meaning a search for fulfillment and productivity.
4. A limit has been reached and there is an inability to know how to go beyond that limit.
5. A suggestion to take better care of one’s health.
6. Something is dying inside.
7. A close connection with somebody deceased.
8. A desire for peace, solitude, and harmony (“the death of fear”).
According to Jung, dreaming about death means letting go of something that has died; it is a symbol of transformation and a new beginning.... Little Giant Encyclopedia

Hamsters are lively and clean, and most are happy to live alone. They can take time to become tame, and, because they are nocturnal, they need to have peace and quiet during the day.
If a hamster appears in your dream is it running endlessly on its wheel in frustration? If this is the case, do you feel as if your life or a particular relationship is going nowhere? If, however, the hamster seems content, the dream could depict aspects of your life that give you small comforts. As hamsters tend to enjoy solitude, could your dreaming mind be urging you to rely more on your own resources. Gerbils and guinea pigs, on the other hand, need companionship, so in dreams they could be highlighting your need for more friends in real life.... The Element Encyclopedia
(Murder; Suicide) Killing in a dream represents a major sin.
If one kills himself, or commits suicide in fear of the consequences of his sins in a dream, it means that he is offering true repentance from his sins, though committing suicide is a major sin that will lead its author to eternal sufferings in hell-fire. Killing a human being in a dream means committing an evil and an atrocious sin. On the other hand, committing an outrageous sin, or a conspicuously objectionable act in a dream may mean killing someone.
If one is killed in a dream, it means longevity and that he will acquire a great wealth from the one who kills him in the dream.
If one kills someone without slaughtering him in a dream, it means that the victim will benefit greatly from his assailant. Slaughtering in a dream means injustice. Killing someone in a dream also means relief from depression, grief, affliction and sorrow. Killing oneself in a dream also means recognition of the value of lost benefits.
If one is murdered in a dream and did not know who killed him, it indicates his failure to fulfill his religious duties.
If one recognizes his murderer in the dream, then it means triumph over one’s enemy. Ifone sees a victim swimming in a pool of blood that is pouring from his jugular veins in the dream, it means that the victim will suffer greatly from the defamation and slander of his assailant. Ifone intentionally commits suicide in a dream, it means that he is a subversive rebel and a disobedient servant of God almighty. Confessing to a murder in a dream means gaining the upper hand. Killing in a dream also could mean that one is missing his prayers, or neglecting them. Killing one’s own son in a dream means receiving money.
If one dies as a martyr in a dream, it also means profits, fulfillment of a promise, business success, or perhaps that he maybe assassinated, or drown, or die under a collapsed structure.
If the victim in the dream is a witness in court, it means that his testimony will be accepted, or perhaps it could mean that he will enjoy abundance ofblessings in his life.
If you are killing someone in your dreams, you are probably expressing hostile feelings. Consider this an opportunity to look at your negative feelings and decide what would be the best and the least destructive way to address them.
If you are a witness to a killing, you may be reflecting on changes going on around you that you don’t particularly like.
To kill a defenseless person; failure in an endeavor.
To kill in defense; Success and advancement.

(1) Murder in a dream may express your hatred or envy towards the person. There is often enmity or rivalry between siblings, or (unconscious) hostility towards a parent or partner. (For Oedipus complex)
(2) Killing a person or animal may symbolize repression / suppression of some aspect of yourself - for example, some instinct or desire. Repressed contents of the unconscious need to be integrated into your conscious life. Alternatively it may represent putting an end to negative self-programming arising out of, for example, irrational guilt-feelings and associated fears. The dream is probably recommending that you should do this. See also Sacrifice.
(3) If the victim is dearly of the opposite sex, he or she or it may symbolize your partner - in which case see (1) above - or your anima / animus. Are you depriving the contrasexual qualities of your personality, not allowing them an equal role in your life? (On anima / animus, see Brothcr / Sistcr, sections (4)~(6))... A Dictionary of Dream Symbols
If you dream about killing a person, an animal or see people or animals being killed, this does not mean you have latent violent tendencies. Instead it can mean the death of thoughts and actions that have been restricting your personal growth. A deliberate act of murder might suggest hostility, with the identity of the victim and murderer assisting with the interpretation. Killing an authority figure typically suggests a desire to escape social or personal constraints.
Killing a parent points to unresolved childhood conflicts, perhaps deep-seated resentments that have not been expressed.
If the parent was of the opposite sex, Freudians might consider it as evidence of the Oedipus complex. A dream of poison—either poisoning someone or being poisoned yourself—may refer to some underhand action we are taking or which is being taken against us. Look for clues in the dream. Who or what is being poisoned? Is someone you know in waking life poisoning your attitude unbeknownst to you? What is the color of the poison? Are you poisoning yourself in some way?...

Attempting to kill the animal within (our lower brain functions) can cause tension, depression and illness; giving in entirely is no answer either as our higher brain functions need expression also. One of the challenges of maturing and growing is to meet and relate to our ‘animal instincts’, and if possible find ways to express them positively. To dream of eating an animal suggests that you need to draw upon your own inner wisdom and energy, but it can also suggest a desire for sensual pleasure.... The Element Encyclopedia

Dreaming about this animal in your dream forces you to consider the negative characteristics of yourself or others. There are not many positive characteristics associated with pigs. In some cultures pigs are considered to be very “dirty” and unfit for human consumption. At times, men are referred to as “pigs” for their sexual desires or attitudes. Pigs are also associated with other negative characteristics: greed, stubbornness, and gluttony. Are you (or someone important to you) being “hoggish” with money, time, food, energy, or personal possessions? Superstition-based dream interpretations say that the pig in a dream may suggest a frustrating time in family affairs but success in business. In some cultures the pig is a symbol of prosperity because the families owning one are assured of food for an entire year. As a dream symbol it represents “korist,” which is loosely translated to mean a valuable possession or event. Also See: Animals... The Bedside Dream Dictionary

The pig is taken in western belief to indicate ignorance, stupidity, selfishness and gluttony. We may be beginning to recognize these unattractive qualities in ourselves; without such recognition there can be no transformation or mastery of them. Ultimately, however, it is the qualities of intelligence and cunning that prevail.
If we dream of pigs and jewels together it shows there is a conflict between the lower, basic urges and higher spiritual values. Perhaps there is a failure to appreciate spiritual values.
