The meaning of Abbot in dream | Dream interpretation

The figure of the monk or abbot is associated with wisdom. It appears in moments of doubt and can signify the need to go to a person willing and able to listen, understand, and guide the dreamer (who cannot solve the problem alone).

Ancient traditions claim that dreaming of an abbot means sickness is near or someone is hatching a conspiracy.

Dreaming of an abbess, however, denotes good friendships.

The Big Dictionary of Dreams | Martha Clarke

Someone or something is trying to control you, perhaps an authority figure. You are being restricted by someone or something’s power or overpowering attitude over you. Someone has power/authority over you; can make you do things you don’t necessarily want to do. There is a restriction in your life. You may not be aware of this consciously so examine your situation, and those with whom you are in close contact. 

The Bedside Dream Dictionary | Silvana Amar

To dream that you are an abbot, warns you that treacherous plots are being laid for your downfall.

If you see this pious man in devotional exercises, it forewarns you of smooth flattery and deceit pulling you a willing victim into the meshes of artful bewilderment.

For a young woman to talk with an abbot, portends that she will yield to insinuating flatteries, and in yielding she will besmirch her reputation.

If she marries one, she will uphold her name and honor despite poverty and temptation. See similar words in connection with churches, priests, etc.

Ten Thousand Dream Interpretation | Gustavus Hindman Miller

It is a warning of ill-health if you meet an Abbot in your dream; but there is comfort behind it, for you will recover in due course. See also BISHOP.

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

To dream of an abbot represents a powerful male in your life, usually a father figure given to displays of authority. Dreaming that you are ‘less than’ the abbot may indicate a lack of confidence in your life and emotional/spiritual suppression possibly connected to your relationship with your own father. Dreaming that you are equal to or more powerful than the abbot this indicates a willingness to take action in your life, changing an old habit to grow in confidence and embracing more of who you truly are.
