random hookupDream: I dreamed of being in a funeral for both my parents. I was so much weeping in pain and much more for the mum. I lost my parents 7 (dad) and 15 (mum) years ago respectively. Please let me know what would this mean to dream this now.
DreamsMaster: Something is going on in your life at this time that is triggering this grief reaction.
It could be an anniversary, birthday or family holiday. For example, in the US, the observance of Mother’s Day occurred this past month, which could have been a trigger depending on your location and culture. It could also be a recent death or funeral of someone you know or that you heard about in the news. You may not have consciously connected the event to your personal loss, but the sleeping mind makes the connection for us.
Another possibility is that you may be dealing with some intense challenges in life right now, and the child inside may be particularly craving the comfort and security that your parents may represent, especially your mum.
Grief comes in waves. Sometimes the ocean is raging, other times calm. Although the grief in the dream was painful, it was clearly necessary. So, even if the immediate message in the dream isn’t clear to you, trust that the dream itself was healing.
