Our dreams hold importance in our life. Our dreams can symbolize many things. Often, they indicate an upcoming warning or a time of great happiness for the dreamer. However, not all dreams are meaningful; Sometimes, the subconscious part of our brain shows us dreams. Such dreams fragmented by the brain hold no meaning. These dreams can involve what we see in our daily life. Other cases include creatures made up of our minds.
There are several interpretations of our dreams. It is believed, in some cases, that the devil shows us dreams. The dreams shown are to harm or scare the dreamer. In some other optimistic cases, the dreams shown are good. Such dreams convey the message of good to come in the life of the dreamer. A lot of the time, we see different places and houses in our dream. People also see temples in their dreams. So what does that mean?
Seeing a Temple in a Dream in General
Temples in Islam mean purity and prayers. Seeing a temple in your dream can mean different things regarding what we see and how we see them while we dream. There are several different types of temples; some are worshiping grounds, others are tourist attractions, and some are left abandoned, which may uphold an evil being. In general, dreaming of a temple can mean that you are on the way to become purified and religious. It can also mean that you will encounter some situation in your life that will awaken your inner self. It will act as a spiritual experience that will be beneficial for your life.
Praying in a Temple
Seeing yourself in a dream praying in a temple means that you are highly spiritual and religious. At times, it may symbolize that you will encounter a situation that will awaken your inner spiritual personality to solve a dire conflict in your life. Visiting a temple might also be an extremely emotional experience. It represents a place of worship and purity too. Temples serve the purpose of a sanctuary for the believers and the right doers. People who see themselves praying in their dreams are right on religion. That is what the dream symbolizes.
Dream of Visiting an Abandoned Temple
If you see yourself in an abandoned temple in a dream, it can mean that you are alone in your life. An abandoned temple can symbolize a deserted and haunted place. Temples are highly pure and full of people. However, seeing a temple with not a soul present in it is a sight to witness. It can also mean that evil resides there. If you see yourself in an abandoned temple, it means you will encounter some form of calamity in your life. It also means that you will undergo a difficult situation, where people may leave you and cause you to be all alone. If you see yourself residing in an abandoned temple, it means you have come to terms with the way your life is.
Eating from a Temple
Temples are also known to host different events, which provide food to poor people. If you find yourself eating in a temple or eating the food given by the temple, the symbolism of this is fascinating. It means that whatever situation you are in, help is soon to arrive, and you will overcome your problems. Poor people get several benefits from the food given to them by the temple workers, just like that if you see yourself eating from a temple, it means you will get support and help, either financially or as a form of new friends. Eating from a temple also symbolizes coming out of difficult situations. It is a good sign if you see yourself eating from a temple.
Visiting an Old Temple
If you see yourself visiting or coming out of an ancient temple, it can mean that you are too involved in the past. Visiting an old temple symbolizes your previous self and the development you have achieved over time. We see how ancient temples and shrines are dilapidated, with the wall paint flaking away and broken windows. A similar principle applies to ourselves. If we dwell too much on our past and continue focusing on it, it means that we pay no attention to our present. If we see ourselves visiting an old temple in our dream, it is a sign to move on from our past and strive to improve the situation we are currently facing.
Temples and shrines mean a place of worship and purity, but they can also mean evil and an unpleasant situation depending on what we do in them and what kind of temples we see. These dreams can give us a warning of an unpleasant situation or even give us some good news. The interpretation of these dreams can be in several ways. Sometimes our dreams do not make sense; such dreams are a mere fragmentation formed by our subconscious. The dreams which do mean something can either be good ones or nightmares.
To be sure of our dreams and put our minds at ease, we should consult a spiritual scholar who can interpret and give us the correct meaning of our dreams. We should not dismiss our dreams as mere gibberish; our dreams can have different meanings, so we should always keep them in mind and be prepared for anything we might encounter.
