Monk, Dream Interpretation


See roles.

Influence of religious teachings; difficulty in meeting sexuality and emotional and financial independence; aware­ness of spiritual.

Symbolic of chastity

In dreams, as someone who has dedicated himself to his god or ultimate power, a monk represents spirituality, obedience and discipline.

Psychological / emotional perspective: In his devotion to the mystical life, the monk in dreams symbolizes an emotional response to a vocation, perhaps to a life of ascetism. He symbolizes holiness – and no matter what religion – that part of us that searches for the divine. He can have the same significance as the hermit or wanderer.

Material aspects: As a shadowy representation of the part of us that prefers to exist in isolation, the monk can appear in dreams when our self-belief is under threat. When he is cowled or hooded he signifies hidden information, but with his face uncovered he represents truth.

Gives gender - specific: In a man’s dream a monk can signify the need or wish for celibacy. In a woman’s dream he may be a representation of the animus.

Vision: Having frequent dreams about a monk might be a sign that someone will help you deal with the troubles in your life. From a spiritual point of view, a monk might represent your inner guide.

If a man dreams about a monk: don’t take sexual energies quite so seriously; use them instead to mobilize your intellectual power.

Depth Psychology: Worldly matters no longer interest you; you are striving for wisdom and faith or are in search of a spiritual guide. See Cloister, Gum, Nun.

(Abstinence; Asceticism; Bat; Celibacy; Extremism; Fear; School of thought) Living a monastic life in a dream means walking away from common traditions. Becoming a monk in a dream means receiving praises, respect, or commendation, though one will become uptight because of it, or have limited resources, little money, lives meekly, have constant fears, or it could mean hiding away from people.

Discipline, self-restraint and self-determination; but also losing oneself. See Abbey, Cloister, Hermit.

To see a monk in your dream, signifies your inner faith, devotion and spiritual enlightenment.

As with others connected with the Church, this is an omen of disappointment and trouble.

1. Desire to be by oneself.

2. Desire to be deeply religious to help solve a problem.

Dreams of a monk symbolize spiritual devotion, connection to spirit, and the aspect of you that is service oriented, altruistic, selfless, and generous, detached from the confines of your ego.

The Bedside Dream Dictionary

The monkey is a symbol that needs to be understood by considering the various associations that we make when thinking about them. Monkeys may represent lust, self-satisfaction and trickery.

A monkey may also represent positive attributes, such as agility, inspiration, a sense of freedom and a capacity to imitate. In Japan, toys that look like monkeys are given to children because monkeys are supposed to be able to drive out evil spirits. In India, the monkey is a symbol of soul. Thus, monkeys as symbols appear to have a double or twin meaning. Whether positive or negative, the monkey is revealing something to you about what is going on in your inner world. People usually think that monkeys are far less evolved and the expression “stop monkeying around” is understood by all.

The dream with a monkey may be an encouragement from you unconscious to continue to develop your personality by staying close to your own nature.... The Bedside Dream Dictionary
