If you dream of your own funeral, you are giving up a part of yourself or an old way of acting. This dream often means that you are trying to ignore a situation that needs to be confronted and dealt with directly. To dream that you are at somebody else's funeral means you are burying an old relationship and closing the lid on the past. You may be letting go of old feelings you've been clinging onto. If you dream you are attending a funeral for a parent who is still living in real life, you need to separate yourself from your parents' restrictions. The symbolic death may give you the courage you need to take the next step toward your independence.
