Dream symbol Baptism


christian faith, holy water, cleansing, new beginning

Baptism is an essential part of the Christian faith. According to this belief, it is only through this washing that one professes trust in God after birth.

However, this ritual of belief also finds symbolic recognition in dream research. A person may well dream of baptizing himself. Or one observes the baptism of another person. Baptismal font, candle or a baptismal robe are also coveted dream objects that can appear. But let's take a look at what dream interpretation wants to tell us about it.

General dream interpretation

According to general dream interpretation, this dream symbol of baptism announces that the dreamer is about to make a new beginning, and this is preceded by a kind of washing and purification that is symbolized by holy water in the dream. The dreamer seems to have reached the end of a phase in which he is ready to let go of old beliefs, attitudes and habits, and to embark on an expansion of his own field of vision.

In general, dream interpretation about this dream image wants to indicate a good omen. However, it is suggested to him not to give up his own ideas and orientations because of other people's opinions. He is encouraged by the symbol of baptism not to be led astray like a flag in the wind, but to follow his own convictions. This interpretation also applies when watching someone being baptized. This dream event also serves as an expression of a stable stand or hold in life.

In connection with this are the successful implementation of goals and plans, as well as a strong self-confidence. In addition, this dream image also stands for responsibility, which the dreamer should soon face in the future.

If the dreamer plays the godfather in the dream baptism and holds the one to be baptized in his own arm, this serves as a request not to shirk responsible duties or not to take them lightly.

In the context of baptism in the form of a ship christening, the general interpretation prophesies a happy period of life and great success.

Psychological dream interpretation

According to psychological interpretation, the dream symbol of baptism may indicate a religious background. Most likely, the dreamer is at a threshold where he is on a new stage to a deeper approach of his faith or begins to deal with a particular religion.

However, this need not be true in all cases. Psychoanalysts of dream research suggest that a baptism in a dream simply represents a new orientation that is not related to spiritual beliefs or religion. Perhaps the person concerned joins an association or group that has specific orientations and values. Again, another possible interpretation points to the fact that he would like to restructure his life and strive for more clarity about the essential aspects of his daily life.

Spiritual dream interpretation

For spiritual dream interpretation, the image of baptism in a dream represents a symbol of healing. It symbolizes transformation resurrection and rebirth.
