My Mother was suffocating me

This dream took place in the week beginning 27th Nov 2017

The bits I remember:

I saw myself in a video entering the church. I went slightly late. I was walking and brushed into another woman. It was normal but to me, I judged it to be clumsy. I was dressed in my usual dark cloths. My hair was neat and I was wearing nice looking glasses. I looked a bit geeky. In the dream I marvelled at the fact that I looked a bit asian, even though I didn’t. So, in general, I was judging myself negatively.

Later on, I was talking to my two kids about personal things. My oldest started giving me some advice. I looked at her, and suddenly saw a middle aged man, slightly dark but handsome with slight grey hair. He spoke in wisdom and began ministering to me. I marvelled at the big, huge transformation in my child’s life!


Later on, I was sitting in my bedroom, on my own real bed. My mother was sitting on the bed, on my left. My nephew; my sister’s oldest son, was standing in front of me, near the door.
We were chatting about things. Then the phone rung. I was told that it was my sister (his mother). I nearly reached for the phone to speak to her but I suddenly remembered that I currently live in hiding and that no one (from back-home) should know my whereabout. So, I told my nephew not to tell her where I live. I then proceeded to talk to him about her mental illness and my mother’s lack of support, etc. My mother then decided to stop me divulging anymore secrets by suffocating me! I think she decided to sit or lay on the top of me to finish me off. I cried for help and begged my nephew to rescue me but he quietly and calmly opened the door and left the room. I felt very helpless.

I have no personal interpretation for this as my mother lives abroad and I haven’t seen her for about four years. My nephew too lives abroad and probably the last time I spoke to him it was a good ten years. I haven’t seen or spoken to my own sister for fifteen years due to her mental illness and also to the fact that she lives abroad.


To dream of being killed, means that you feel that you are currently under attack or are being mistreated in some way.  This may be, a job that is slowly killing you or zapping your will to live. The pressure of the job, relationship or situation can carry with it so much stress that you feel it is killing you on some level.
High stress situations can bring with them life threatening consequences leading to high blood pressure, cancer, depression and any number of diseases. Disease can be broken down to mean dis-ease. You may want to consider what it is that is slowly killing you and change it.

Being killed in a dream indicates you overcome or dodge dangerous circumstances or dramas others try to involve you in.

Because suffocating indicates a great deficiency of oxygen, this dream may also reveal that people sense restrictions and are struggling to “live” their very own lives.
