The attempt to preserve ourselves as we are, instead of opening ourselves to the constant change, death and rebirth, that life brings. This only results in mummification or desiccation. The mummy often appears in dreams where a partner or someone close has died, and there are still difficult feelings. In such dreams it shows difficult feelings about death., and pain at loss.
The mummy can indicate an attempt to preserve a way of life which is dead – mummification – instead of facing change and the new. So it could show patterns of life and behaviour from your past that have been preserved, or something from the past that has been preserved and is now gaining your awareness.
