CEREMONY, RITUAL

A Guide to Dreams and Sleep Experiences
Example: ‘A ritual began whereby a laige knife was drawn and a few deep cuts were made to both our faces. I put my hands to my face and saw them covered with blood, crying and crying’ (OS). Similar to initiation. In the example the girl is with her boyfriend; she may thus have been ‘initiated’ into sexual activity, sex with her boyfriend has changed her image of herself.

A ritual depicts important change, such as entrance into puberty; deeper levels of oneself; new attitudes or skills; just as marnage is an entrance into a new type of life and social situation. From the wider sense of self our unconscious has, things are seen as important which consciously we feel are trivial.

A ceremony in a dream brings such things to our atten­tion. ... A Guide to Dreams and Sleep Experiences

MARRIAGE

Ten Thousand Dream Interpretation
For a woman to dream that she marries an old, decrepit man, wrinkled face and gray headed, denotes she will have a vast amount of trouble and sickness to encounter. If, while the ceremony is in progress, her lover passes, wearing black and looking at her in a reproachful way, she will be driven to desperation by the coldness and lack of sympathy of a friend.

To dream of seeing a marriage, denotes high enjoyment, if the wedding guests attend in pleasing colors and are happy; if they are dressed in black or other somber hues, there will be mourning and sorrow in store for the dreamer.

If you dream of contracting a marriage, you will have unpleasant news from the absent.

If you are an attendant at a wedding, you will experience much pleasure from the thoughtfulness of loved ones, and business affairs will be unusually promising.

To dream of any unfortunate occurrence in connection with a marriage, foretells distress, sickness, or death in your family.

For a young woman to dream that she is a bride, and unhappy or indifferent, foretells disappointments in love, and probably her own sickness. She should be careful of her conduct, as enemies are near her. See Bride. ... Ten Thousand Dream Interpretation

MARRIAGE

The Bedside Dream Dictionary
It is a symbol of commitment and, depending on the details of your dream, you may be currently dealing with this issue.

The commitment could be to your work, to yourself or to your partner. Mostly, a marriage in your dream represents the coming together all various parts of yourself (feminine and masculine, or spiritual and rational). It could represent a greater level of awareness where by the dreamer’s conscious and unconscious elements are becoming more familiar and are embracing one another.

The marriage dream is affirmation and encouragement to grow in self-awareness and to transform yourself. On a more practical level, if you are not married but would like to be, this dream could also be a form of wish-fulfillment.... The Bedside Dream Dictionary

This not only symbolizes the emotional union of the protagonist with another person, but also internal balance between the masculine and feminine polarity. Additionally, the dream could represent the relationship you maintain between your brain hemispheres (that is, that which governs intuition and that which governs analytical reason). Despite all this, this type of image reveals inner conflicts that affect the personality. “Literal” dreams about conjugal life tend to evolve throughout your life: first they tend to reflect the desire to find a soulmate; then, when the wedding is approaching, elements linked to compromise appear; later, dreams refer to a common project based on mutual love and respect.

MARRIAGE / ENGAGEMENT

The Element Encyclopedia
Dreams about proposals may simply be wish-fulfillment, especially if the person to whom you are getting married is someone you are attracted to in waking life.

If you are already married and dream that someone else, a person you know or a stranger proposed to you, you need to think about what your dream suitor could represent to you, as this will hold the key to the interpretation. The dream suitor may represent a commitment that you may be being asked to make in real life, for example a new job offer. Your dream reaction to both the proposal and to the engagement ring will give you an indication as to how you feel about committing yourself to this person or project.

Like dreams about proposals, dreams about weddings and marriage may be simple wish-fulfillment.

If you have such a dream and are about to get married, pay attention to how you feel. Are you beaming with joy or filled with panic? If you are feeling anxious, your unconscious may have been urging you to acknowledge your qualms and either come to terms with them or call off the wedding.

If the church altar features in your dream marriage, bear in mind that this is a symbol of sacrifice too; if you are wearing white, this is a symbol of purity and innocence. Are you in danger of sacrificing yourself to someone who isn’t good for you? If a wedding dress or cake appears in your dream, this may refer to your feelings and hopes about relationships and wedding.

If the wedding dress is given by your mother, it refers to qualities and strengths associated with your mother that are relevant to your relationship. Listen to the uncertainties your unconscious is expressing and try to resolve them before the wedding day.

If you have no intention of getting married in real life and you are getting married in your dream to someone you know, this could suggest that you harbor unconscious romantic feelings towards them. Alternatively, your dream may be sending you such a dream to highlight another form of joining together, such as a marriage of ideas or a merging of plans and projects. Another interpretation suggests that your dreaming mind has conjured up a marriage scenario to indicate the need to bring together two opposing aspects of your personality—Jungians would suggest the masculine and feminine qualities we all possess—to create a harmonious whole. Could your bride have been your anima if you are a man and your bridegroom your animus if you are a woman?

Similarly, marrying a stranger in your dream may suggest the possibility of uniting two different but complementary aspects of your personality—your intuition and your intelligence for example. Such a partnership may empower you to take a new direction in your life and any children of this marriage may suggest the outcome or result of this new potential.

If you dreamed of being at someone else’s wedding, your unconscious may also have been highlighting two different aspects of your personality. On the other hand, if you know one of the partners getting married in your dream, perhaps you are worried about losing a close relationship with them.

If you were the best man or bridesmaid in your dream, pay attention to your feelings; if you felt jealous, this could suggest your fear of loneliness in waking life as in ’always a bridesmaid and never a bride’. Finally, if you have been married for many years and dream of marrying again, this may suggest that your feelings for your partner are as vibrant as ever. It may also suggest that your mutual commitment is showing signs of strain and needs special care and attention to revive it. In some cultures, to dream of a wedding signifies a death in the family or change in the family’s circumstances. To dream about a honeymoon may reflect a period of happiness in your waking life....

MARRIAGE / WEDDING

Ten Thousand Dream Dictionary
1- A marriage or a wedding in a dream often indicates the uniting of two particular parts of the dreamer which need to come together in order to crcate a better whole.

For instance, the intellect and feelings - or perhaps the practical and intuitive sides may need to be united. Often a marriage or wedding can be precognitive in that one may subconsciously be aware of a relationship between two people, but it has not yet registered on the conscious level. So, to be attending a wedding may indicate that one is aware of such a relationship.

To be dreaming of wearing a wedding dress is to be trying to sort out one’s feelings and hopes about relationships and weddings.

To be dressing someone else in a wedding dress can indicate one’s feelings of inferiority ‘always the bridesmaid, never the bride’.

2- Bccause the human being is always looking for someone to complement him- or herself, to dream of a wedding can give some indication of the type of person we are looking for as a partner. We may, for instance, dream that we are marrying a childhood friend - in which case we are looking for somebody who has the same qualities as that person. We may dream we are marrying a famous figure and again the qualities of that particular person will be important.

3- Spiritually there is a proccss of integration which needs to come about. Firstly the masculine and feminine sides of our personality need to unite, then the physical and spiritual sides need to harmonise. This is usually known as a Mystic Union.... Ten Thousand Dream Dictionary

MARRIAGE, WEDDING

A Guide to Dreams and Sleep Experiences
One’s marriage or feelings about mar­riage, uniting two different aspects of dreamer such as intellect and feelings, practical and intuitive self; the ‘marriage’ be­tween conscious and unconscious self—any children of the marriage would be the flowering of new abilities or qualities; sometimes is about what our energy or drive is uniting us with, such as a new business venture or creative scheme—any children of this marriage suggest our intuitive assessment of the likely outcome. Also in some cultures dreaming of a wed- ding signifies a death in the family.

Example: ‘1 am at the wedding of my best friend.

The groom doesn’t turn up and she decides to marry the first per­son who comes along. I wonder whether this is a good thing to do’ (Mary T).

Dreaming of wedding if single: Mary could equally as well have dreamt she was the bride, but being in her 30s and unmarned it is easier for her to consider or exper­iment with the idea of marriage using the image of her friend. Should she marry whoever offers? When single one often dreams of marnage as a way of clarifying. What would it be like? Could one succeed in it? Is the present panner OK? How will one achieve it?

Example: ‘When I was engaged to my present husband I dreamt we were married and I looked down at my wedding ring. It was twisted and bent. In fact I now see it as a warning because we have not made a good marriage’ (SW). ... A Guide to Dreams and Sleep Experiences

Rituals symbolize transitions in life. Also, they make up a representation that invites you to escape the limits imposed but the conscience.

In this manner, the dream tries to separate the subconscious from the conscience so that you can connect with your most instinctive you.

Shamanic rituals bring the individual to a state where the dreamer develops prophetic and clairvoyant powers. So, it is recommended to take note of the dreams upon waking, in case they contained premonitory information.... The Big Dictionary of Dreams

RITUAL ABLUTION

Islamic Dream Interpretation
(See Ablution; Ritual bath)... Islamic Dream Interpretation

RITUAL BATH

Islamic Dream Interpretation
(Ablution; Ghusul; Ritual ablution; Wash)A ritual bath (arb. Ghusul. Islamic Law) is customarily performed on a festival day, or before the Friday congregational prayers, before starting a pilgrimage, after recovering from an illness, or is necessitated by the emission of sperms either during one’s sleep or following a marital intercourse.

A ritual ablution is also given to a deceased person before his funeral and burial, or otherwise is taken by the undertaker himself after washing the dead.

To take a ritual ablution in a dream before the Friday congregational prayers means purifying oneself, washing oneself from sin, repenting from sin, serving one’s parents, or being true to one’s friends. Taking a ritual ablution for any of the above reason during the wintertime and using cold water in the dream means distress, trouble or a sickness. Ifhot water is used, then it means profits, benefits and recovering from sickness. Taking a ritual ablution in a dream before attending a festival means getting married. Taking a ritual ablution after seeing either a solar or a lunar eclipses in a dream means an adversity, and the same applies if one takes a ritual ablution in a dream before the prayers of asking for rain.

To take a ritual ablution after washing a deceased person in a dream means abandoning one’s association with heedless people.

If the person who performs such an ablution is mentally deranged, it means that he will wake-up cured from his condition.

RITUALS AND RELIGIOUS CEREMONIES

The Element Encyclopedia
Each of the symbols that appear in a religious dream should be taken into account as each will contribute in some way to its meaning. Their significance is likely to accord with your religious faith but whether you are religious or not, the interpretation tends to be similar.

If you were reading, hearing, singing or chanting from a religious book, manuscript, sacred scripture or text such as the Bible or Koran, your dreaming mind is highlighting your desire to know the truth or the answer to a question that is on your mind. You may feel the need for some kind of guidance and your dreaming mind is urging you to pay attention to the problem or issue on your mind before it gets any worse. Dreams about praying also reflect a feeling of helplessness and the need for guidance in waking life.

If you attended a religious ceremony or rite or were part of a congregation in your dream, your feelings about this are crucial.

If you felt uplifted and comforted, this suggests that you feel at peace with your moral code; but if your attitude was one of rebellion or anger, your dreaming mind may be urging you to assert your individuality, as you are currently being stifled by the restrictions of your belief system. Alternatively, if you are not allowed to participate in your dream ritual, you may be harboring feelings of guilt because you have broken some important rules. As ceremonies are used to attain deeper awareness and to establish a new order, another interpretation suggests that dream ceremonies and rituals refer to major life changes or new attitudes in your waking life that are having a profound effect on you. Religious processions and carnivals in dreams reflect a need to stimulate your imagination and perhaps increase your faith

A dream of visiting a religious place may be commenting on the lack of spirituality in your life; this is especially so if the church, mosque, chapel, temple, cathedral or religious site was peaceful and calming, as it suggests that you need to seek out a place where you can feel secure and reflect on your waking life.

If you dreamed of a crypt or religious burial ground, this may be suggesting that your spiritual self is buried.

If the religious site or building was in ruins, you need to consider which aspect of your spiritual life is crumbling away.

If you heard church bells or religious music in your dream, this suggests a desire to expand your spirit

A dream that features baptism or an initiation of some kind suggests spiritual renewal or a new life for the dreamer.

If you were baptized and given a new name, this indicates a new start; the significance of that name will be important.

If you attended the baptism of a baby, this may represent an idea or project you are working on and for which you need approval.

If you were blessed in your dream, this suggests approval of some kind of action or attitude in your waking life. Blasphemy, on the other hand, reflects irreverence or insults of some kind in your waking life.

If you dream of taking Holy Communion, because in real life this is a form of blessing for forgiveness and renewal, in dreams it represents sacred sharing.

If bread and wine appears in your dream, these refer to the basic needs in your life. As always, your feelings in the dream are important. Did you feel comforted or anxious? If you dream of a crusade, this suggests that you need to fight for or against something or someone in your waking life. See also GATHERINGS.... The Element Encyclopedia

SPIRITUAL AUTHORITY

The Element Encyclopedia
Priests, rabbis, popes, cardinals, priestesses, lamas, gurus, yogis, Jedi knights, monks, mullahs, nuns and curates are all symbols of spiritual authority in dreams and in some cases they represent your own spiritual wisdom. The key to interpreting their appearance in a dream is the message or feeling they convey to you.

If you were uneasy because the message was an unwelcome reminder of a duty you have neglected, your dreaming mind may be urging you to take positive action that will transform your spiritual well-being. Such figures may also stand for parental disapproval or advice; perhaps you are yearning for some moral certainties and direction in your waking life. According to ancient dream-lore, any dream concerning a priest is a fortunate one. In particular, it means the end of a quarrel.... The Element Encyclopedia

SPIRITUAL GATHERING

Islamic Dream Interpretation
(Admonition; Fellowship; Gathering; Meeting; Religious meeting) If one who does not qualify to be a spiritual leader or a scholar sees himself holding a religious gathering and admonishing people to do good and to forbid evil in a dream, it means distress and an illness which he is praying hard for it to be lifted by God’s leave. However, ifhe does speak wisdom during such a spiritual gathering in his dream, it means praying hard to have one’s distress and illness lifted by God’s leave. Consequently, and God willing, he will recover from his illness and be able to dispel his adversities. His condition will change from tightness to abundance. He will repay his debts and overcome his oppressors.

If one sees a spiritual gathering where God’s Name is glorified, the holy Qur’an is read and wisdom is spoken in his dream, it means that such a place will be established as a spiritual center or as a mosque. Such a place will also become a center where spiritual leaders and governors will gather and speak.

If love songs of light nature are played during such a gathering in a dream, it means that falsehood will overtake such a place. Ifone sees himselfsitting in the center stage, in the middle oflearned people and religious scholars in a dream, it means that he will receive a greater knowledge and honor in his life.

A gathering that involves a court case, or a marriage in a dream represents an unknown adversity that will safely pass. Admonishing people in a public gathering in a dream means that one’s command will be obeyed. Sitting in the center stage in a spiritual gathering in a dream represents one’s station or rank, or it could represent one’s wife, child, property, or personal secretary. Anything that happens to such a gathering in the dream may reflect on any of them.

SPIRITUAL OR MYSTICAL DREAMS

The Element Encyclopedia
Tibetan Buddhists call these‘dreams of clarity’ because such dreams go beyond everyday situations and concerns into a space of‘the divine’. You may wake up from such a dream with a feeling of awe and unreality, knowing that something special and mystical has transpired.

The more you focus on the spiritual aspects of your waking life, the more likely it is that you will have a mystical, visionary or spiritual dream. The Tibetan dream yoga tradition, in common with other Eastern practices, encourages daily meditation and other self- awareness rituals to help clear the mind so that you may be open to receiving spiritual dreams during sleep.

Spiritual dreams are often categorized in several ways: Numinous dreams are dreams in which you can achieve practically anything, since you possess‘numen’, or divine power. Transpersonal dreams are those in which you go beyond personal concerns into a concern for the needs of all humanity. Transcendent and spiritual dreams are those in which you make contact with higher or divine knowledge; in such dreams, you might interact with angels, spirits, gurus or other divine messengers and learn profound lessons about ultimate human values, such as compassion, courage and selfdiscipline.

Scrooge’s dream in A Christmas Carol is a classic example of a spiritual dream. As was the case with Scrooge, a spiritual dream leaves you feeling inspired, motivated, filled with hope and at peace. Many dream experts believe that these special dreams have the ability to give your life new meaning and offer a higher perspective on life in general. Spiritual dreams stand out and are rarely forgotten. It is not uncommon to glean incredible insight from this type of dream, information that assists you in various areas throughout the rest of your life. Spiritual dreams are most likely to occur during the following periods in your life:

1. Before a significant change.

2. Before or during a shift in your perception about yourself and your life.

3. After a commitment to something meaningful has been expressed and is genuinely being pursued.

4. Following a major loss or change.

5. When becoming more aware of yourself, your circumstances, your life.

6. During emotional and spiritual breakthroughs, such as taking a class, attending therapy, practicing yoga or meditation.

7. During a recovery process.... The Element Encyclopedia
