Redemption, resurrection and salvation are all symbolized by the coffin. Contemplation of the death experience can lead to dreams of a coffin, in this case symbolizing the physical body, though we may be attuned to the unseen spiritual world. We are perhaps shutting our own feelings away and therefore causing a part of ourselves to die. There may be a dull, unaware state of consciousness which is lacking in spiritual insight. When we dream of a coffin, we are reminding ourselves of our own mortality. We may also be coming to terms with the death of a relationship and feelings of loss. This may also be the first warning of a weakened state, a total lack of vitality. Consult the entries for Catacomb/Crypt, Cemetery, Dead People, Death and Hearse for more information.
