Dreaming of ancient Egypt can signify the symbolic 'archeological digging' of the deeper layers of the psyche. Its association with magic and resurrection offers a landscape of initiation and metamorphosis. To see a mummy can symbolize being wrapped up in one aspect of life at the expense of another. It can also relate to the idea of 'mommy' and whether or not you were encouraged in the free expression of feelings and affection. Often you will visit this type of setting when you are going through a difficult transformation, or when you are embarking on a spiritual path.
