Peace of mind and freedom from anxiety will soon be yours.

The Complete Guide to Interpreting Your Dreams | Stearn Robinson - Tom Corbett

To dream that a priest prevents your entering an abbey is a prediction that your enemies will be powerless to effect your ruin.

The Complete Dream Book | Gillian Holloway

All religious buildings in dreams can be interpreted, roughly, in the same manner. The abbey symbolizes questions or concerns—in the intellectual, moral or spiritual realm of our life—that are about to emerge. When a building appears in a dream, it usually represents the dreamer herself, her body, or the different levels of her mind. An abbey is a sacred place and not lavish, like your true Self.

If the abbey is old, it is advisable to consult the old stories of the Celtic tradition and the first Christians; their valuable knowledge will favor your spiritual awakening.

Although almost all faiths believe dreaming of an abbey is a good omen, there are some different superstitions. When the dreamer is a young woman, this dream predicts disease. And, if the abbey is in ruins, it means that your plans will fail. However, if the path to access it is blocked, you will be safe from a painful mistake.

The Big Dictionary of Dreams | Martha Clarke

To see an abbey in ruins, foretells that your hopes and schemes will fall into ignoble incompletion.

To dream that a priest bars your entrance into an abbey, denotes that you will be saved from a ruinous state by enemies mistaking your embarrassment for progress.

For a young woman to get into an abbey, foretells her violent illness.

If she converses with a priest in an abbey, she will incur the censure of true friends for indiscretion.

Ten Thousand Dream Interpretation | Gustavus Hindman Miller

Dreams of an abbey symbolize your own inner sanctuary and connection to your spiritual path. Because abbeys are exclusively for men, this dream can also represent fraternity, suppressed sexuality or homosexuality. See Brotherhood.

The more important the structure, the better the prospect.

See Cloister. Even though the abbey or cloister has no real meaning in today’s world, in a dream it points to the fact that the person is looking for something.

The Latin word monasterium points to “mon aster”—your own star, your own self (that Jung compares to God). Peace, spiritualization, meditation, and quietness lead you to self, but so does discipline. You have discovered your path and must follow it.

Little Giant Encyclopedia | Klaus Vollmar

Looking upon this type of structure clearly and in broad daylight, generally you can consider this a good omen. Being a very good sign you can expect peace of mind and substantial freedom from anxiety.

If you see in Abbey in gloom or fog at night it indicates sadness, but it should only the temporary in nature.

Encyclopedia of Dreams | Michael and Elizabeth Thiessen

Dreaming of a convent or monastery may indicate that the dreamer needs to spend some time alone reflecting, or even needs to seek spiritual nourishment. Alternatively, it may symbolize isolation from the normal flow of life.

Dream Symbols in The Dream Encyclopedia | James R. Lewis and Evelyn Dorothy Oliver

A dream in which an abbey is depicted reveals your overall state of happiness and complacency. It represents the spiritual, serenity, freedom from stress and worries and the certainty of assistance. If, however, the abbey is depicted as shattered or destroyed, this insinuates the distortion and collapse of your aspirations and dreams.

(1) An abbey is a holy place and represents a more profound dimension of reality than most of us are aware of most of the time. It may, therefore, be a symbol of those parts of the psyche that lie below the surface - that is, below die level of consciousness. It may even represent the self - that is, the ‘true’ or ‘essential’ you.

(2) An abbey is usually an old place and as such may symbolize the older, more basic parts of your psyche. All the mental processes of perceiving, naming and recognizing things, knowing facts, following a train of thought, spinning arguments and so on are, on the evolutionary scale, recent arrivals in the world - or at any rate on the planet Earth. But there is a kind of awareness that is quite independent of these mental processes, is much more ancient and may indeed be as old as evolution itself, and often, in order to get at the truth about ourselves, we need to stop thinking and learn to rely on older modes of knowing.

Other very old, primitive parts of the psyche are the instincts for sex and survival.
