Dream symbol Sacrifice


deity, animal sacrifice, worship, sacrificial feast, offerings, renunciation, expectation of recognition

"Sacrifice" is a term associated with religious beliefs. In various cultures, this is celebrated in such a way that an offering is made to the worshipped gods. This offering is meant to express humility and gratitude.

From earlier times of the history it was also handed down that humans were sacrificed to tune the gods mildly, to avoid a natural disaster or to avert other misfortune. People feared the wrath of the gods, and all sorts of grievances in the land were appeased with correspondingly large sacrifices.

The religion of Christianity rather does not know such ritual acts of carnal sacrifice. Nevertheless, there can be many motivations to "offer a sacrifice" in another sense. Sacrifice is also often associated with the term ABSTINENCE. Abstinence from alcohol or cigarettes could be meant, either due to illness or fasting, rather than sacrifice to God.

There are other people who light incense or candles in sacred places or bring flowers. Thus, everyone expresses devotion or sacrifice differently, depending on their inclination. Humility and gratitude are also often expressed through offerings. According to dream interpretation, the dream symbol "sacrifice" can have quite different interpretations.

General dream interpretation

The general dream analysis sees in the dream image "sacrifice" the effort not to take oneself too important as one's own person and to yield to someone or something without resistance, if it is the call of the time. This requires a certain maturity.

If one offers a sacrifice in a dream, it probably represents a deep rootedness in faith. It could affect the religious level but also the relationship level, or social interpersonal interaction. A balanced harmony in relationship life makes up the balance of give and take without ever demanding it.

Making an offering to Roman deities in a dream, such as Mars or Venus, can have a negative influence on the dreamer.

Psychological dream interpretation

According to psychoanalytical dream interpretation, if the dreamer himself offers a sacrifice in the dream, this illustrates an expectation on an unconscious level for appreciative recognition and praise.

The dreamer puts his whole heart and soul into a special matter or is putting his heart and soul into assisting a person. Even if you are doing this selflessly, deep down you still want to be appreciated for your efforts.

In addition, this dream symbol of sacrifice, promises the willingness of the dreamer to discard egocentric excessive patterns of action. This will bring harmony and balance to the subject.

Spiritual dream interpretation

According to spiritual dream interpretation, sacrifice symbolizes a spiritual development process and also represents the dreamer's maturity to put material desires on the back burner or to "renounce" them, since they have lost importance. What brings him an enormous progress in the spiritual development.
