Dream symbol Monastery


abstinence, nun, monk, vow, worship, abbot, monastery church, seclusion, monastery, contemplation, retreat

A monastery serves primarily as a place of reflection and retreat for many. It is a place of a devout religious community that prays and lives together and where certain rules serve to keep order. For most people, it would be beyond imagination to give up their individual lives for religiosity and submit to community rules. For other people, on the other hand, it is a framework of security and support to conform to given norms and principles and to abstain from the large and hectic outside world.

General dream interpretation

Under the magnifying glass of general dream analysis, the dream image "monastery" indicates a pleasant life . If singles are blessed by this dream image in their sleep, it also signals engagement or marriage.

Sighting a monastery in a dream, the dreamer is shown that he perceives great dissatisfaction in relation to his friendships. It seems that he has taken a different path and has drifted apart with his friends. He should open himself to new acquaintances and friendships. If you see a monastery in your dream, this sight in your dream conveys silence, tranquility and harmony. If in a dream one decides to join a monastery in order to leave the ordinary world behind, in the waking world this augurs that in old age one will find true contentment and joy within oneself.

Seeking refuge in a pen symbolizes to the sleeper in the dream a sorrow-free life without great worries. If a priest comes to meet him at the entrance of the monastery, he could leave his life, with all its difficulties and mental worries, behind him a fruitless attempt.

If one enters a monastery as a clergyman in a dream, it illustrates, according to the general dream interpretation, that one's future life will be full of BLESSINGS. Finding oneself in a monastery promises the dreamer that he will find a loving community that will share his attitudes and truths. If a young girl dreams of a convent, this dream image indicates that she should resist a temptation fraught with negative after-effects. Attentiveness and caution are now called for.

For a female dreamer, the dream symbol of the monastery indicates a selfless way of life . She is very helpful to others in everyday matters and has an ear for spiritual difficulties. If you dream yourself in a Tibetan monastery in the Himalayan region, this dream is to be interpreted very positively.

Psychological dream interpretation

On the psychological level of dream interpretation, the monastery symbolizes to the person concerned, similar to the real situation, reflection, contemplation and silence . The dreamer longs to go on retreat. There is also a possibility that he likes to escape from the reality of the world. This would also be a valid interpretation of this dream motif. A secluded monastery in a dream represents an indication that all problems can vanish into thin air, even if he has to give up a self-determined life.

Another psychoanalytic interpretation of the monastery dream would be that this dream image represents self-mortification. The dreamer feels guilty for something and wants to answer for it and repent. The monastery thus stands as a dream image of SOUL CONVERSATION and symbolizes the desire to spend life in silence and tranquility.

From another point of view, a monastery in a dream can also stand as a sign of confusion. Until one has freed oneself from the confusion of feelings, the subject is advised to introspect and reflect in order to find clarification. One emerges from it as if reborn and strengthened and ready to re-establish contact with the outside world.

Spiritual dream interpretation

The level of spiritual dream interpretation sees the dream symbol of the monastery as the desire and longing for a spiritual community that shares similar views of life.
