Interpretation of dream: Funeral

To dream of your own funeral, symbolizes an ending to a situation or aspect of yourself. You may be repressing some of your feelings or parts of yourself and the dream may be a signal for you to recognize and acknowledge those feelings. Instead of confronting a situation, you are dealing with it by burying it and trying to forget about it. If you are nearing death, a funeral dream may relate to your feelings/anxieties about your own death. To dream that you are at somebody else*s funeral, signifies that you are burying an old relationship and closing the lid on the past. You may be letting go some of the feelings (resentment, anger, hostility toward someone) that you*ve been clinging onto. To dream that you are attending a funeral for a still-living parent, suggests that you need to separate yourself from your parent*s restrictions and confines. The symbolic death may give you the courage you need to take the next step toward your independence and autonomy. To dream that you are at the funeral of an unknown person, suggests that something in your life is supposed to put to rest or put aside so that you can make room for something new. You need to investigate further what aspect or component of your life you need to let go. Please also see Burial.
