To dream of a dead body being exhumed represents feelings about reexamining old issues. Getting to the root of a problem that was overlooked. A need to return to issues that were put to rest. Issues with trusting a story you were told. Reexamining suspected lies. Feeling that it’s important to have to deal with an issue again.
Negatively, exhuming a dead body may reflect problems with letting go of the past. Returning to old problems, bad habits, or bring up topics again that were already moved on from. Rethinking about a dead person you already grieved for.
Example: A man dreamed of seeing his recently deceased pet duck exhumed. In waking life he had tried to grieve and get over the death of the pet duck, but couldn’t. He felt the need to look at pictures, objects let over that were associated with the pet, and to talk about the dead pet to friends. He was having issues letting go of the dead pet and kept bringing it up in conversations
