A 62-year-old woman dreamt that she was on an acute care ward because she had a heart attack. She was watching the monitor to which she was connected and saw it “flatline.” She realized that she died. Strangely, she felt overjoyed.
She dated a boyfriend who was ambivalent about leaving his long-term cohabitant, who did not love him. His current live-in girlfriend was using him for his money. The dreamer was frustrated that she could never get him to see that it was in his best interest to leave her and dwell with the dreamer.
The dream used a heart attack to show her heart was broken. The machine was giving a reading of the condition of her heart. The flat line in this case indicates stability and harmony as it is not fluctuating wildly.
The fact that she died means that her old way of handling matters of the heart died. She decided to assert herself and tell him exactly how she felt. He responded positively and their relationship changed in a major way. She was overjoyed with their new relationship which was now filled with meaningful and truthful discussions.
