1- Whatever life has to offer, we may be left with painful memories, feelings of anger and difficulties. In a dream these memories and feelings can surface as illness. Sometimes such a dream can foretell real illness, but most of the time it represents the way we deal with things. It means that we are not putting ourselves in touch with a force that can help us to overcome difficulties.

2- Often when we are ill in a dream we are grappling with part of our personality. Rather than the whole being ill, part of us is sick and perhaps needs to be dealt with. Often the dream will give the method of dealing with it perhaps by taking medication, having surgery or a combination of both. It also often represents our fears of not being looked after properly.

3- Lack of spiritual clarity can often be experienced in dreams as illness.
