Dreams about funerals are very common and many people have them. They are so common because people are afraid of death and the funeral is the closest thing to it.
Some people are constantly thinking about death because they are scared, some because they are amazed by it.
People don’t know a lot about it and it has always been intriguing the mind of a man.
It comes in dreams usually because a person had a close touch with it or because he is afraid of it.
Let’s see what could different dreams about funerals mean and why do we dream about them.
The most common dreams about funerals
Dreaming of crying at the funeral
If you only remember dreaming of crying at the funeral for someone you have lost, it means that you have been broken by something from the past.
Something bad has happened to you and this dream is a symbol of that past trouble you went through.
You shouldn’t be worried about this dream because it doesn’t mean anything relevant to you. It is just a picture from the past that has come to your mind again.
This means that you haven’t solved your problems from the past and you haven’t forgotten anything. Maybe it would be easier for you to confront your past and deal with it.
Dreaming of your mother’s funeral
If you had a dream about your mother’s funeral, and she is still alive, it just means that you are very attached to her and you are afraid to lose her. This dream indicates that you love her very much and she means a lot to you.
You should spend more time with her because your subconscious mind is reminding you that you could lose her and lose the chance to be with her.
On the other hand, if you had a dream about your dead mother’s funeral, it means that you can’t let it go and your wound is still open.
Dreaming of your father’s funeral
If you had a dream about your alive father’s funeral, it means that you are very scared of losing him. It is the same as dreaming of a mother. Maybe you feel guilty for not spending enough time with him and you want to punish yourself for that.
On the other hand, this dream can be a product of your angry self that can’t forgive your father for something he has done.

It means that you see yourself as a dead person inside. Whatever the reason is, you need to change it. This dream shows that you think about that and that you are ready to face it.
On the other hand, this dream can simply mean that you are afraid of dying and you can’t stop thinking about it. You must resist negative thoughts and try to be positive and happy because you deserve that.
Dreaming of someone’s funeral
If you were at the funeral of someone you know, it means that you think too much about death. You are obsessed with that and it makes you dream about it.
If someone from your family died recently, that can be a reason to have this dream. In that case, this dream means that you are under stress and that you should talk to someone about it.
Our subconscious minds can show us how we feel even if we reject to accept that. Sometimes we don’t realize that we feel sad and bad and our subconscious mind finds a way to tells us that.

If you were at the funeral and you saw a lot of people around you, it means that something tragic could happen in your life. It doesn’t necessarily have to be death, but something that could change your life for the worse. Maybe you will lose your job, or a friend, or anything that could disturb you.
A lot of people at the funeral are a symbol of a lot of concern. They are all worried and sad and it means that something in your life will cause you and other people around you to feel that way.

You probably miss that person and you think about the times when they were here. This dream means that you can’t let go of thinking about them and it is making you feel tired and sad.
Maybe you should talk about that person with someone and try to remember the memories you have made with that person from the dream.
It will certainly make you feel better and help you remember more good things about that person.

Dreaming of burying an alive person
If you had a dream about seeing an alive person getting buried, it means that you have some suppressed fears and feelings. You don’t let them get out and you try to keep them as far as you can from you. You don’t show them to other people and you keep them buried deep in your mind. But they are very alive and they are important. You can’t keep hiding them because you might fall apart.
You are not who people think you are because you don’t let them see the real you. This dream means that you would rather pretend to be someone you are not than letting others see who you really are because you are embarrassed by yourself.
Another meaning of this dream can be that you have suffered injustice and someone fooled you. Maybe you were used and tricked and that is why you had this dream. You were pressured to do something you don’t want to and that is haunting you.
Maybe people didn’t treat you right and that is the reason for having this horrific dream.
When you dream about someone getting buried alive that is not a good sign. There has to be something wrong and you need to figure out what.
Dreaming that you are buried alive
This dream is even worse than the one before because it indicates that you have suffered a direct trauma from someone or something in your life. Or, it can mean that you will.
Dreaming of getting buried alive is a very bad sign and it can be a symbol of many problems you have in life. Maybe someone is trying to make you feel bad and is constantly repressing you. You need to be aware that this dream indicates that something bad is happening in your life.
Maybe you have a suppressed fear that you don’t want to admit to yourself because it is rooted deep inside you. Lots of young people hide their feelings because they have no one to talk to.
Another meaning of this dream can mean that you pretend to be someone you are not because you are afraid others won’t accept you.
Or, someone is forcing you to act different and you do it because you are scared of them. This dream definitely indicates that you are afraid of something and is suggesting you try to solve your problem.
Dreaming of bad weather at the funeral
If you were at the funeral in your dream and the weather was awful, it can mean that you will have health-related problems.
You should pay more attention to your health and try to live a more healthy life. This dream is a negative sign because it has two symbols that indicate that something bad will happen to you.
Firstly, a funeral can never be a good sign. It is either a sign that your mind is not very well or that something bad will happen. Another symbol is bad weather. Bad weather can represent your inner feeling and your strength which is fading away.
Bad weather at the funeral is a combination of bad symbols and it indicates that you will go through some bad times. Maybe you will feel weak these days and without energy so you should rest and collect energy.
Maybe you are depressed and that is why you had this dream. If you know why you are having this dream, try to deal with the source of stress and take more care of yourself.
Dreaming of your child’s funeral
This is probably the scariest dream ever and can be very disturbing. But, it is just a dream. Parents are always overprotective of their child and this dream can be a product of too much worrying.
If you worry too much, you are likely to have dreams like this one because your subconscious mind is filled with negative thoughts and fear.
But, if you had this dream multiple times, you should either check yourself or your child. Maybe you can’t stop worrying and that can be very bad for you, so you should talk to someone.
On the other hand, maybe your subconscious mind is telling you that there is something wrong with your child so you should check that also.
Dreaming of seeing a funeral procession
If you had a dream about seeing a lot of people walking together for a funeral, it means that many people have let you down. You feel like you are surrounded by people who don’t have enough strength to support you and be there for you. But, you still let them be around you and you never say anything,
Another meaning of this dream can be that you are worried about someone and you had this dream as a product of your fear.
Seeing a big crowd of people going to the funeral is a very stressful thing and can be coming from positive sources.
