To dream of yourself being in a coma represents helplessness, total dependency on others, or an inability to function. Feeling totally impotent to take action or do things for yourself. Feeling cut off from others or that other people are so busy that they can never listen to you. Feeling cut off from the world around you. Feeling that you are boring to other people.
Dreaming of a coma may also reflect a feelings about being emotionally distant or unresponsive. Threats that neutralized, but still possible to return.
Negatively, dreaming about a coma may reflect feelings about someone ignorant in your life being too empty-headed to be aware of their ignorance. Feelings that someone is so crazy, corrupt, or over-emotional that they will never “wake up” to rational thinking. A threat of violence from someone whom you are confident can’t get you anymore.
Alternatively, a coma may reflect some area of your life that has been permanently sidetracked or delayed until further notice. Feeling an unbearable sense of uncertainty while you wait for something to be restored to normal.
To dream of waking up from a coma represents a new sense of control over your life and gaining powerful insight into your problems. You are relying less on others and dealing with your own problems. A long period of being sidetracked or powerless may have come to an end. Insights that shake your entire belief systems or outlook on life.
Example: A woman dreamed of her ex-husband in a coma. In waking life she had a restraining order placed on her ex-husband. The coma in this case may have reflected her feelings about the threat of violence from her ex-husband being neutralized by the restraining order, but still obviously a problem. He ex-husband was unable to harm her, but still obviously very angry at her.
