DREAM DICTIONARY - Coma :If you think about a symbol in depth then you can start to understand its symbolism in dreams. If you are in a coma then you are cut off from the world. You are neither dead nor alive.
One coma dream in our studies occurred when the dreamer was thinking about her ex husband. She had taken out a restraining order out against him. So now he was well and truly out of her life. In the dream he was in a coma which symbolised that he was now no longer a threat to her. He was still alive but he could not now talk or communicate - as in a coma.
Another coma dream occurred when the dreamer realised that she had become cut off and distant from her daughter. So her coma dream was a recognition that she had not been talking to her daughter. In a coma you are truly cut off and distant so this was an excellent metaphor for someone who has become emotionally distant.
