holy grail, wine, communion, blood of christ, altar

A chalice consists of a precious shaped metal bowl, which contains silver or brass, decorated with ornate ornaments. As is known, a chalice is used in the Catholic Church, in a Christian mass for consecration and communion. The offertory takes place by symbolizing the transformation of water into wine, as Jesus is said to have done during his lifetime. The host given to the Christian community in this celebration represents the bread he shared with his disciples at the Last Supper.

General dream interpretation

The chalice is strongly associated with religion, which symbolizes the fact that only through great effort and diligence one can reach the seemingly unattainable. Furthermore, the general dream interpretation interprets the symbol of the chalice as the connection to the heart.

From the point of view of general dream interpretation, the dream image "chalice" illustrates a problematic difficulty in the dreamer's life, which is connected with a lot of perseverance and energy expenditure. An ideal means of detachment is not yet in sight, what sorrowful effect this will continue to bring is still uncertain. Dropping the cup on the ground in a dream brings a rather negative interpretation and predicts bad news.

If the dreamer finds himself drinking from the chalice in the dream, this dream image symbolizes a life full of peace and joy. Interpreted differently, the chalice also symbolizes legal principles, in which case it may be about legal decisions that unfortunately are made at the expense of other people.

Psychological dream interpretation

Finding a chalice at the dream level reveals for psychological dream interpretation thefeminine or maternal principle. It depends on what other clues the dream contains, depending on it could also symbolize an inclination to escape from reality.

The wine or liquid in the chalice reflects human emotions and points to bitter truths in life that one often swallows. That a further development happens only when one can leave many things behind without mourning. On the other hand, it is precisely the sorrowful and painful experiences in life that are most instructive and allow us to take great steps forward. We must not face life with resistance, but with devotion, no matter what life demands of us.

The Lord's Supper also reappears here as a dream interpretation term. If one shows willingness to surrender to suffering, healing awaits the person. The chalice stands in modern times as a symbol of HOPE to not give up in stressful, difficult phases and to trust that every painful end has a new refreshing beginning and opens new doors in life.

Spiritual dream interpretation

On the spiritual level of dream interpretation, the dream image "chalice" stands for the flowing element of water, femininity and softness . At the same time it stands for strength, a

vessel that can catch, preserve and pass on, thus symbolizing the inexhaustible source of divine being.
