Although dreaming of your own funeral is really unpleasant, the meaning that lies behind this image is positive. It indicates that you must move away from the past and look to the future. In contrast, dreaming of someone else's burial announces that, probably, a radical change is about to happen in your life. Something has come to an end and you have to forget about it; or in other words you need to bury it. When it comes to the funeral of a loved one, it shows that you should not cling to your possessions. Dreaming that you are buried alive warns you against a mistake you are about to make; your opponents will use it to harm you. If you are saved from this situation your efforts will correct the mishap over time. (See cemetery and death )

Types of sleep
There are two types of sleep that most of the humans undergo - REM and NREM. REM refers to the Rapid Eye Movement and NREM refers to Non-Rapid Eye Movement. Every individual will alternate these two types of sleep. Non-REM sleep will occur for a short period of time in the first stage of your sleep followed by the REM sleep. Dreams occur during the REM stage, where it lasts for 20 minutes. According to a researcher, J. Allan Hobson, dreams that occur in REM stage are usually forgotten when the individual wakes up. Studies conducted on patients during sleep shows that the frontal lobes in the brain, that are responsible for storing information, are inactive during the REM stage, which is the main cause for forgetting the dreams. Studies also show that this is the stage where you have the most intense dreams.
The amount of sleep that a person gets will be associated with his or her lifespan. However, the causes or effects are still vague, as illnesses can also affect a person's sleeping pattern. According to a 2010 study, women under the age of 50 to 79 only get less than five hours of sleep every night, which makes them a subject for death occurrences.
