Have you ever died in your dreams and lived to tell about it?

At the ripe old age of 5, after watching too many Tarzan movies, I had the most vivid dream wherein I was slowly squeezed to death by a giant python while enjoying an evening campfire in Africa (save it - 5 year-olds don't have phallic symbolisms). I rose to a very calm place above the fire and watched the other campers trying to flee from various African beasts, but all were lost. The whole thing was quite serene to me. In the ensuing 51 years I've had at least 2 more "death dreams", which some people claim is impossible - that right before you die you always wake up. I not only die but go to heaven and incredible peace, and I'm an agnostic.

Who else has experienced death while sleeping, and what was its longterm effect on you?

On edit: Who else has been able to intentionally go back into a good dream night after night - "serial dreaming" - or change the plotline/direction of their dreams?
