I had a Dream recently in which my deceased father had just died. He was supposed to be dead but when I went to see him (I don’t know what the place was supposed to be, maybe a morgue) his body was still moving. He had no clothes on and that didn’t seem odd - like maybe it was a morgue and expected there. His arms and legs were still moving but nothing else and his eyes were closed and face not alive. The thing that caught my attention were two almost rectangular openings on his lowest ribs. There was one on each side. They weren’t bleeding but just open and red like the skin was pulled off and the red tissue still there. They may have been positioned on top of the rib bones or just between the bottom two but they were large. Thinking now, they may have been the size of a snicker bar - just a tad shorter but not as small a a fun size snicker bar.
Anyways... the rest of the dream I think I understand. A friend from my childhood, grown in the dream and a little more clean cut than he is in real life, took me into his family and treated me very graciously while I healed and mourned my father’s passing. This friend was very gracious and kind in my childhood and played a significant role in showing me dignity. He had recently come to mind in a time of healing from childhood wounds and stood out as having that role for me from men. So I believe he represents the Father or Jesus and Him bringing me into THE FAMILY Home to be healed. But I can’t figure out why my earthly father had those openings on his lower ribs. I believe he did represent my deceased father and possibly how he is still affecting me today and I’m still in healing. But I don’t understand the openings in his ribs. Are they his personal wounds? He definitely had many and they weren’t recognized until he died. Could they represent mother and father wounds that he had? Being left and right side wounds - the missing rib for woman and the existing rib for man?
Also, I believe his arms reached up for me when i came to visit in the ”morgue.” That’s why i thought it was him still affecting me. The odd thing is that I know more happened in the friend’s house but I dont remember it well. My memory is most clear regarding the rectangular wounds. Maybe the dream means to stop focusing on my father’s wounds and start focusing on being cares for in my Father’s house?
