Altar dream meanings


Holiness; victims.


What do I worship? Do I want to give something?

General Meanings:

Liberation – In a dream an altar represents the means or the needs, to free yourself something, what is more important than the immediate situation.

Faith and Separation – Typically, an altar represents religious beliefs and ideals that you want to defend. Often this icon is also an indication of the separation between material and spiritual spheres.

Strengthen Faith and Spiritual Development – A believer dream of a richly decorated altar, makes him feel it as a refuge where he can  mentally strengthen. Non-religious altar symbols are considered as indication for a higher spiritual development on a (positive) change of attitude.

Psychological Meanings:

Inner growth and Respect for life – At the psychological level, the altar is a symbol of the voluntary or enforced sacrifice of the dreamer.

It represents rather an inner maturity, developing a sense of responsibility, or the reverence for life.

  1. I dreamt about me going to church but I saw a man following me and I was scared and turned back but my husband came fetch me with a car and he was shouting at me saying we will be late at church, when we arrived at church they were finished I saw women standing outside the church wearing black skirts and black shirts with white scarfs, I don’t know what does that mean. I thought they were wearing church uniform.

  2. I dreamt that I was standing at the alter with a guy who I haven’t seen in months and might still have some romantic feelings for. My mother was with us, talking to us. Meanwhile, there were people sitting in what would be the pews, though it looked more like a theater, and were watching us with smiles on our face
