: Would like to know what the phrase "somebody walking on/over my grave" means.

If somebody 'walks over your grave' it means that you have a sudden chill/the hairs on your neck standing up. It presumably comes form the idea that we have an allotted grave-site and that if somebody walks over it, we resonate with that.
