What an incredibly illustrative mind you have. I was fascinated by this dream to say the least & looked up the key elements in a “dream dictionary.”
Here’s what it said:
1) foreign land = indicates changes in your life. How you feel in the dream about the foreign place in which you find yourself is indicative of whether or not you are ready for the changes coming.
2) seizure = (closest I could come to “palsy-like”) indicates a lack of control.
3) death = longing for the embodiment of a certain quality that the person you dream is dying, possesses. To dream of a parent dying indicates a “shift” in perception about the relationship, in your waking state. The relationship has entered a new phase or realm.
4) sleeping = peace of mind
