    I had a dream last night that my boss was trying to put me in a coffin while I was still alive I told her I was too young to die and that I still had so much ahead of me and she said I either had to get married or have a baby to stay. Othe wise I was going to be put in the coffin and buried alive. What could this mean? She was also burying residents from my work (I work in aged care)

    My dad passed away April 2013. He always said to cremate him, not to bury him. Last night I dreamt he was laying in the coffin as if we were at his viewing but the coffin was closed. I wanted to see him one last time. But I knew he had already been there for 2 months. I opened it anyways, saw him laying there then woke up.

    I dated a guy who dreamed of being trapped in a coffin. I instantly knew God was trying to warn him because he has spent his whole life mistreating people, deceiving people, and a host of things with no remorse. I could tell when he told me about it that it deeply troubled him. It is just too bad that he did not take heed to the warning, as he is still mistreating, manipulating and using others for his own personal gain with absolute no remorse.

    I had a dream last night that is really bothering me…Long story short I dreamed I was clearing up old boxes of charts in my company’s warehouse when the owner of the company came in and told me there was something very special he wanted me to put on the very top shelf in a very specific place. I tried to explain it was so high maybe someone else could do it better and he said since everyone else was busy I could do it. I moved the boxes and the thing he wanted me to move was a small coffin! When I took the cloth cover off it the plate said Tina Marie - my neices name. I picked it up to move and dropped it, my boss had a fit…yelling and screaming at me then left. The top had broken in one corner and I could see small piece of what looked like a dolls head had broken off and I could hear soft music. Thinking it was a doll I reached in and tried to straighten it up, it moved but didn’t scare me or anything I felt kind of protective and was stroking her head when her mother came in. We talked about how beautiful the baby was –it wasn’t it looked just like my boss – and the mother said she was sorry she couldn’t have kept her that it wasn’t fair but the baby was very loved now. One of the guys I work with – that I never see any more and haven’t thought about in a long time – came in and asked if I wanted him to help me, we put the casket where my boss wanted it and finished putting the boxes on the shelves and I woke up…Peaceful…

    I had dreamt that one of my close relatives, who is still is alive, was pushing a trolley with a new coffin & trying to gave it to me as a gift. I ran like hell through the staircase while he is still chasing me to gave the coffin to me. Thereafter, I woke up from my sleep.

    Appreciate if you can help me interpret what this dream means.
