To dream that you are deeply religious, foretells of a disruption to your life. Your arrogance may be repelling your love partner or close friends.
To dream that you are questioning your religious beliefs, suggests that you are a deeply spiritual person.
It is generally a bad sign to be troubled by Religion in a dream. See CHURCH and CLERGY.
1. A possible need or desire for spiritual enlightenment or moral reassessment, especially if it is the dreamer’s religion.
2. Social control, restraint.
3. Contentment and serenity.
4. A message is being conveyed from one level of consciousness to another (note type of religion and its tenets).
Dreams of religion are natural to the devout, though pleas to the clergy take on the meaning of guilt or transgression with a subsequent desire for absolution or punishment. It is the subconscious performing against the willful waking mind of the dreamer, who thinks of breaking a law or has already committed a violation.
Dreams of religion denote that you are receiving a spiritual message, exploring your spiritual beliefs and roots. Perhaps you are grappling with what you authentically believe and feel passionately about versus what you were raised to believe. See Prayer and Prophetic Dreams.
If you dream of discussing religion and feel religiously inclined, you will find much to mar the calmness of your life, and business will turn a disagreeable front to you.
If a young woman imagines that she is over religious, she will disgust her lover with her efforts to act ingenuous innocence and goodness.
If she is irreligious and not a transgressor, it foretells that she will have that independent frankness and kind consideration for others, which wins for women profound respect, and love from the opposite sex as well as her own; but if she is a transgressor in the eyes of religion, she will find that there are moral laws, which, if disregarded, will place her outside the pale of honest recognition. She should look well after her conduct.
If she weeps over religion, she will be disappointed in the desires of her heart.
If she is defiant, but innocent of offence, she will shoulder burdens bravely, and stand firm against deceitful admonitions.
If you are self-reproached in the midst of a religious excitement, you will find that you will be almost induced to give up your own personality to please some one whom you hold in reverent esteem.
To see religion declining in power, denotes that your life will be more in harmony with creation than formerly. Your prejudices will not be so aggressive.
To dream that a minister in a social way tells you that he has given up his work, foretells that you will be the recipient of unexpected tidings of a favorable nature, but if in a professional and warning way, it foretells that you will be overtaken in your deceitful intriguing, or other disappointments will follow. (These dreams are sometimes fulfilled literally in actual life. When this is so, they may have no symbolical meaning. Religion is thrown around men to protect them from vice, so when they propose secretly in their minds to ignore its teachings, they are likely to see a minister or some place of church worship in a dream as a warning against their contemplated action.
If they live pure and correct lives as indicated by the church, they will see little of the solemnity of the church or preachers.)
(See Church). Dreams of a religious quality should be interpreted according to the items which appear in the dream rather than the emotional side of religion. Thus the meaning of the dream should be ascertained through such references as church, minister, altar, congregation, etc.
Misfortune is in store for you after a dream of discussing religion with strange people.
