To dream of seeing someone embalmed represents some area of your life where preserving the past is very important. Never wanting something lost to be forgotten. Not wanting to lose anything else after experiencing a big change or loss. Going to extra lengths to preserve a reputation. Deep concern about how something is remembered after being lost. Wanting some area of your life remembered as being “perfect” forever.
Negatively, embalming may reflect anxiety about others having misconceptions about your mistakes or past. Anxiety or concern about a losing your reputation. Alternatively, it may reflect difficulties letting go of the past. Spending too much time thinking that someone or something that you’ve lost was perfect
