(Immolation) To offer a sacrifice in a dream means to fulfill one’s promises, relieffrom difficulty, healing of the sick, or increase in one’s earnings.
If the one offering a sacrifice interprets dreams as a profession, then it means that he has misinterpreted someone’s dream, that he gave him bad advice, or sacrificed the interest of the person in question. Sacrificing in a dream also means receiving an inheritance.
If a pregnant woman sees such a dream, it means that she will bear a righteous son.
Before we can nourish others, we first need to nourish ourselves. Making sacrifices is human, but when we do too much for the world and not enough for ourselves, we are left feeling neglected and weak. Martyrdom is not fun and martyrs are at times annoying. This dream may be suggesting to you that you need to prioritize. Eliminate things in your life that are not necessary and continuously drag you down. Also, consider the fact that whatever is constantly requiring you to make personal sacrifices may not be in your best interest or conducive to your health or happiness. Superstition based dream interpretations say that dreaming about sacrifice is a dream of the contrary and that you will be enriched in the near future.... The Bedside Dream Dictionary
This type of dream may be suggesting to you that you need to prioritize; to eliminate things in your life that are unnecessary and continuously drag you down.

While we maintain a behaviour pattern or belief, it stays in its habitual form: when we let go of it, a new approach can emerge. ... A Guide to Dreams and Sleep Experiences
Dreams of sacrifice denote either maturity, or a disdain of an aspect of self. Also, consider that within the word sacrifice is the root word sacred. Perhaps you are realizing that in order to improve your life, and make it sacred, you need to give something up of lesser value that is no longer serving you. Perhaps this dream is reflecting your willingness to bypass short-term satisfaction for a long-term reward. See Integration Dreams.... Strangest Dream Explanations
(1) If you are being sacrificed in the dream, there are at least three possibilities.
The dream may be drawing your attention to a martyr complex, habitual and compulsive self-punishment, self-denial or self-denigration. Such negative conditioning can be got rid of only by reconditioning, by making positive affirmations every day: for example, ‘I love myself dearly5, ‘I accept myself totally5, ‘I have a unique value5, and ‘I desen e all the good things life offers me.5
Your unconscious may be telling you it is time to let the old you die, to make way for the new and truer you. The self-image you have accepted and conformed to in the past is probably too lopsided and needs to be supplemented by utilizing capacities or qualities that have till now lain dormant; or it may have led you completely astray from your true self, in which case it needs to be removed altogether.
Perhaps the dream is expressing a feeling that you are being abused or undervalued by other people.
(2) Arc you doing the sacrificing? If so, what is being sacrificed will usually represent some aspect of vour personality - desire, ambition, habit, prejudice - that you have given up or are being urged (by your unconscious) to give up. (If an animal is being slain, it will probably symbolize an instinctual impulse or emotion.) This is one of many cases where you have to decide whether a dream is descriptive or prescriptive: showing what you have done (and asking you to stop doing it), or showing what you ought to do. You should have no difficulty in
knowing whether you have done what the dream depicts.
If you have, the dream is asking you not to do it.
If you have not done it, the dream is asking you to do it, for the sake of personal fulfilment.
It is important to remember that sacrifice is meant to be creative: it is the giving up of something in order to achieve and enjoy something better. And if you think ‘better’ has nothing to do with enjoyment but means simply what duty requires, then you need to remember that making a sacrifice either resentfully or merely for duty’s sake is bound to be destructive in its effects both on you and on those you are in relationship with.
It is also important to remember that ‘To everything there is a season... a time to seek, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast aways (Ecclesiastes 3:1, 6). There comes to us all a time for transcending animality (e.g. making sex a vehicle for love and adoration) but to attempt such things before the proper time can only breed resentment and end in disaster. Your dreams will tell you the time!
(3) Is your act of sacrifice a violent one? If so, it would suggest that some (partly unconscious) mechanism of self-punishment is at work in you and you urgently need to ask yourself why you feel guilty. Almost certainly the cause will lie in early childhood and will be an entirely innocent desire.... A Dictionary of Dream Symbols

If the victim of the sacrifice is you, the dream could be a reflection of your attitude in real life.
It is possible that you make a martyr of yourself or that you have self-blaming tendencies. In this case, you probably feel that everyone else makes light of you, forgetting your talents and qualities.
If you make a sacrifice, you should consider what it is that you are sacrificing. An animal could signify your natural instinct; a person that you know, and aspect of yourself that you do not want to accept. In spiritual terms, the ego should be sacrificed so that the divine you can enter into the light.
In antiquity, sacrificial rituals were a way to appease the gods and add fertility to the earth. They sacrificed people for the good of cosmic and social unity. In Egypt, Osiris was quartered by his brother, Seth; in Greece, Orpheus was ripped to pieces by a group of women; in Christianity, Jesus was crucified. These acts of divine delivery still exist in modern life.... The Big Dictionary of Dreams
Many ancient cultures used the ritual sacrifice of a life to show devotion to the Divine. In this way, the essence of sacrifice is the exchange that is buried within it. There is a principle in dream work that when a death occurs, it is like a sacrifice, where the old way of being is released in order to birth something new. There is great power in this practice, so if a sacrifice is the scene in a dream, there is a profound level of change going on within your psyche. Something that no longer serves you is being released in order to create something new.... Complete Dictionary of Dreams
1- As a rule, sacrifice has two meanings. Firstly, it is to give something up and secondly to make something sacred or holy. So when those two things are possible within a dream scenario the dreamer is prepared to give up his ego or individuality for the sake of something greater or more important than himself. Often a sacrifice is made because of passionately held beliefs, often religious in origin.

To dream of spices or herbs suggests you need more variety in your life. You need to look at a situation or relationship from a different perspective. To dream of growing herbs suggests self-advancement through hard work but the dream may also refer to your health. Many herbs have symbolic meanings that go back centuries and, as a result, most individual herbs have specific symbolic meaning in dream lore (see box on page 270).
For example, the ancient Romans offered wreaths of bay leaves as a symbol of triumph and peace, and they also used to strew rose petals, a symbol of both love and victory, on the paths of wedding parties and victors of war. In Britain, rosemary was called ‘Rose of Mary’ in memory of the Virgin Mary, and in Shakespeare’s Hamlet, Ophelia says, ‘There’s rosemary, that’s for remembrance, pray you love, remember.’ In accordance with this association of rosemary with remembrance, the herb was once placed on the graves of loved ones. To see sage in your dream constitutes rejuvenating elements in your life, but it could also signal the need to be ‘sage’, or wise, when taking a decision that is preoccupying your waking mind. Majoram is thought to absolve and purify, rue reflects the bitterness of loss, whilst thyme is seen to represent ‘love forsaken’.
If garlic features in your dream, this refers to your personal defenses against negative aspects or forces in your life. The dream may, in addition, have referred to garlic’s medicinal properties and the need to take better care of your health in waking life.
To dream that you are eating gravy suggests that something in your life will happen more easily than you expected. Alternatively, it may suggest health problems and business disappointments. To dream of vinegar indicates worrisome and negative matters in real life; it may indicate that are the object of jealousy.
If ketchup features in your dream, this suggests that you need to spice something up in waking life. To see mustard in your dream signifies a desire to improve your prospects in life. On the other hand, it could denote some hasty action for which you are suffering and now bitterly regret. Or are you hoping to ‘cut the mustard’ and satisfy your own expectations in a forthcoming challenge in real life? Mustard seeds will most often indicate a new idea and your desire to plant, tend and realize its harvest.... The Element Encyclopedia

(Calif; Caliphate; Deputy; Human being; Minister; Ruler; Secretary of state; Vizier) In a dream, a vice-regent represents someone whom people seek for his knowledge, or to learn the mastery of his craft, or he could represent an appointed justice of the peace. He also represents someone who inherits good and bad qualities, or whose character is different privately from the way he portrays himself in public.
If one sees the vice-regent of the land in a stately appearance, or if he sees himself in such a form in a dream, it denotes his good state in this world and his success in the hereafter.

Seeing him in a dream also means that someone from a different circle is backbiting him, or speaking of him without his consent, or that people are reporting him to the authorities, or that scholars are discussing him, or mentioning his work.
A vice-regent or a calif in a dream also represents aloofness, seclusion, truthfulness, volunteering one’s services, commanding what is good and forbidding what is evil, developing one’s own certitude and faith, repentance, abstaining from sinful actions, imprisonment, sickness, or travels. Ifone sees himself being awarded the seat of the vice-regent or calif in a dream, though he does not suit the position, it means that adversities and temptations will befall the land, though the people of knowledge and the righteous ones will escape such danger. It could also mean that he will suffer humiliation, and that the people whom he manages may rise to preside over him.... Islamic Dream Interpretation

However, in dream, any ugly or coarse sound represents sorrow and distress while any pleasant sound in a dream represents happiness and joy.

Expression of oneself, not simply ideas, but subtle feelings or realisations. Spontaneous speech, voice that speaks through or to one: our personality or mind is not a totally unified whole. Some aspects of self we may not identify with. Because we disown them, they become split from our main expression. Contacting them may be like meeting a stranger— thus in dreams they are shown as exterior to self, or a separate voice, perhaps disembodied. Also some aspects of self express spontaneously—see autonomous complex.
The voice may therefore be one’s intuition; expression of unconscious but not integrated parts of self; fears; the Self being met in the dream.
Example: ‘I was going mad. I was crawling around on my hands and knees and wailing and behaving in a most peculiar manner. I actually felt mad. But inside my head a tiny voice kept saying, “You aren’t completely insane yet—there’s still a chance.’’ People around me kept saying to each other, “We think she’s possessed by devils.’’ My sane voice then said *’Make the sign of the cross, cast out the evil spirit.” I kept trying to do that but my hands wouldn’t or couldn’t complete the sign. I woke still feeling disturbed’ (Margaret F). Margaret has fears about her sanity.
The voice here is that of her unconscious, speaking from a more whole view of her being. Such a voice might very well be the voice of one’s fears and confusion, however.
Example: ‘My present lover, Tony,’ and a man I had loved years before were standing side by side.
A voice was telling me to go to Tony (Miranda L). Here Miranda’s unconscious is summarising her feelings and helping her transfer her feelings of love connected with the past to her new lover. ... A Guide to Dreams and Sleep Experiences

If one believes in the spirit realm, this is communication from a discarnate spirit. More psychologically, when we suppress certain parts of our personalities they may surface in dreams as disembodied voices.

This dream could have different connotations. So, if you hear a voice that you do not recognize, it could mean that your subconscious is trying to tell you something of vital importance. All that you can be found inside you: you should simply learn to listen at the appropriate moments. On the other hand, dreaming that you are losing your voice reflects a notable lack in determination and security in yourself. (See SCREAMING, SOUNDS, and CALLS)... The Big Dictionary of Dreams
The voice is the tool we use to express ourselves, so when you hear voices in your dreams the unconscious aim is to draw your attention to the information being given. From a psychological point of view, when you repress certain parts of your personality they can surface in dreams as disembodied voices; dream voices could therefore be drawing your attention to aspects of yourself that you are neglecting or denying in your concern with everyday distractions.
If the voice was that of God or an angel, this may also be an expression of your intuition or unconscious wisdom that is not yet integrated into yourself.
Recognizable voices may remind you friends or family who have been neglected.
If you hear a call or cry as if from a great distance, your unconscious may be suggesting that someone you know is in distress. It could also indicate that you should not be so proud and seek support from others when you need it.
If the voices in your dream come out with nothing but babble or gibberish, this suggests barely controlled rage that needs to be confronted and dealt with if it is not to erupt and create chaos in your waking life.... The Element Encyclopedia
