The church or the place of prayer is a symbol of your personal beliefs as well as an architectural model of the rules you live by, or your relationship that you have with God.

Because these thoughts could be a part of your unconscious, your personal beliefs could be in conflict or harmony which is why dreams may appear in a positive and negative situation. Analyzing what took place in the church, the emotions that were expressed, as well as your beliefs about spirituality can give you clues.


Dream Interpretation Questions:

  • What was your purpose within the Church?
  • Do you have faith that is strong enough?
  • Are you thinking about and convictions regarding your religion.
  • Are you unsure about your faith or relationship with God?
  • Are you lost? Or is your church burning?

Church Dreams: The Sacred Place Within

The meaning behind the church could be difficult because you’ll need to determine the meaning of your dream if it has to do with your beliefs about religious institutions or your personal relationship with God or is based on the morals and beliefs you have hidden behind in your daily the real world.

The church could also represent your whole psyche, or even the “Self” a need to reformulate or fully integrate the elements.

The church is your relationship to God as well as your “Self” in search to discover the truth of your life by distancing the dark from the shadow, and establishing an intimate relationship with a fundamental principle (structure).

Common Church Dreams

The prayer you make to God in your dreams could bring you closer to your spiritual side and help you bridge or connect with a higher power. Perhaps it indicates that you require your prayers answered since you may be feeling confused of being lost. It is possible to ask yourself whether this is the moment in your life that you require “center” or “ground” yourself to reclaim the things you might have lost.

The feeling of being lost in churches is fairly typical dream symbol that draws your focus to the loss of focus in your daily life. Because this is a church, if that is lost, it will focus on your beliefs about religion as well as your conflicting beliefs, and also your personal relationship with God.

The words priest or a pundit, as well as an Imam are thought to be wise people who help you on your way. The image could serve as a bridge between you and your “inner self” or conscious to the unconscious. The priest has an important role in your dream , whether you are praying, watching or interacting with you.

A church that is in flames has many different interpretations, and both have positive and negative aspects. Because fire is a source of illumination and transformation, it could be a symbol of a previous faith system or structures that need rebuilding. Fire is among the elements of earth that represents destruction or transformation. In Christianity the fire element is a symbol of martyrdom and religious zeal.

The burning be a result of the anger you feel towards a belief system that you have been a part of or your personal beliefs regarding religion? A fire that is not under control may draw your focus to the emotions of anger, rage, or passion. Is this connected to sin?

The sound of church bells is usually thought of as a sign that something new is going to be happening in your life. New beginnings are in the pipeline. A divine message is coming to your ears to hear, and only you.
