I had a dream that one of my friends died and that during the rosary I fell asleep. I woke up and the Funeral home was closed. I tried to find an exit. The only door I found was the embalming room. I walked in and two bodies fell on me. I woke up sweating.
Sue B.’s Interpretation:
Dreams of death tend to symbolize the end of one thing and the start of something new. To interpret this dream, you will need to explore what this friend means to you- What traits do you have in common? What is your relationship like with this friend? How would you describe this friend and how does what you described apply to your life right now?
Since you fell asleep, it sounds as if you had a loss and a transformation (perhaps entering adulthood or growing) without being aware of it. Perhaps now you are looking back and wondering how a part of your life ended and how you got to where you are in your life right now. The dream hints at a feeling of missing out on something such as a ceremony acknowledging the change (like missing graduation for example) or the time period in which most others acknowledged the change, mourned what was ending and embraced what was beginning.
It is interesting the only door you find that is open is the embalming room. You cannot leave the funeral home yet because you have unfinished business with what this event is symbolizing. You cannot simply sleep through this process. This is something that has waited for you to acknowledge and deal with and will not go away until you do so. The embalming room symbolizes what you are preserving or attempting to preserve in vain. A doubled symbol (two bodies) tends to mean to me an exaggeration of the symbol. The two bodies falling onto you is an important symbol within this dream. They symbolize what you are attempting to hold onto, how the act of holding onto something instead of moving on is falling onto you, and your feelings associated with this aspect of your life.
