Embalming dream meanings

Uncover Hidden Dream Meanings

When one experiences the concept of being embalmed or witnessed the process of embalming this is representative of a level of social anxiety that you are feeling as well as the fear of poverty and uncertainty. This is a sign that you are actually beginning to feel your social status deteriorating in a consistent and frustrating kind of manner.

This means that for you, it is time for you to bring life back to not only your social experience but also to your love life and any other aspect of your life which necessitates passion.

Dreaming of seeing the actual process of embalming a body is representative of the attachment to all things morbid. When one fantasizes about death it is likely that death will be in the dreams. In this the concept of embalming is for the purpose of slowing down the decomposition process so that friends and family may still appropriately view the loved one they have lost.

In this dream you may have

  • Dreamed that you could feel yourself going through the embalming experience.
  • Dreamed that you were watching the embalming process of someone you love.
  • Dreamed there was embalming fluid in your coffee cup.
  • Found embalming fluid spilled all over your bathroom.

Positive changes are afoot if

  • You found yourself awake and alive before embalming was able to begin.
  • You found that you were able to get up and walk around, even do a little yoga after being embalmed, showing that you can get yourself out of this kind of rigid way of behaving.

Detailed dream meaning

In embalming, there is a level of rigidity as well as stagnation which has begun to envelop the life of the dreamer thus causing them to feel as though they are completely stuck in the circumstances they have come to terms with. This is also representative of a kind of plastic existence which happens for those who are living for other people and doing what they can to be expressionless so as not to be judged.

Spending too much time treading carefully these dreamers to become as rigid and as plastic looking as a corpse, hence it being important for the dreamer to allow time to relax, to be themselves and to be around others who will encourage that genuine sense of self to come out in the open in a healthy way.

  • The understanding that some friends are not friend.
  • Relationship instability due to the relationship being based on shallow things.
