The dead, feelings we have buried about a dead person; our mother, a pan of self which might be reborn, attempt to preserve a way of life which is dead— mummification—instead of facing change and the new.
The egyptian mummy symbolizes death, but also preservation after death and, therefore, the afterlife. It also symbolizes the self, the unbending mother and self-preservation.
Psychological / emotional perspective: Egypt for many represents magic, and the mummy in this case its more sinister side and hidden secrets. We may be trying to understand such a concept in real life, or we may realize that life will continue despite setbacks.
Material aspects: The egyptian mummy in dreams can symbolize our feelings about someone who has died. There is also an obvious connection between ‘mummy’ and ‘mother’ as a play on words. As a mummy preserves the body for life in the hereafter, its appearance in dreams indicates that we should honour the best of what our mother is or was.
