Cross dreams

Uncover Hidden Dream Meanings

Dreams containing spiritual symbols such as the cross often show no context of the dream itself. You should be aware of the fact that these elements in your dream will carry the most relevance to your daily life as it is spirit who is trying to communicate with you.

Any type of cross in your dream is a method of communication to the physical world, and, put simply the way in which our world reflects the spiritual plane. Any type of dream which shows a cross is a method of communication from the spiritual to the physical world, and helps you to understand the way in which our world reflects the spiritual plane.

  • You saw the cross after you completed a long journey or mission.
  • The cross gave you a feeling of spiritual connection.

Detailed dream interpretation

To first understand what this means in your dream, it is important that we look at what the cross means to society in general so that we can gain some solid analysis of your dream. The cross in general gives great rise to many symbols; mostly, the cross symbolizes life's lessons and morality that we should all try to demonstrate.

In Christianity, the cross symbolizes suffering and crucifixion at first. This is why if you see an image of the cross before crucifixion, your dream may be telling you that there is something missing in your life. This is the cross before man was absolved of sin, according to Christianity. In the spirit world, the upper arms of the cross show anguish, distress and disappointment and finally perfection. This is why if your dream shows Christ on the cross post-crucifixion, it is a positive image of life fulfillment.

Also, a picture of a cross in your dream with the figure of Christ may represent that you are wishing you could sacrifice yourself more often for others. If you don’t see a picture of the cross with Christ, then there is something missing, an emptiness that your mind is attempting to fill. Your dream is telling you to live your life to the fullest. You must follow the codes of morality in which you strongly believe in order to make your life more meaningful. Dreaming of any cross, whether that is a hot cross bun or a necklace all has the same meaning – it is time to really find yourself and follow the path to better things.

Simply, this symbol shows that it is time now to enjoy life. Another joint meaning of this dream is demonstrated in your working life. It sometimes shows that you feel that things are going well but you wish to progress further. The cross in your dream shows that this time is coming into your life and reminds you that “you can do anything if you put your mind to it.”

This dream is in association with the following scenarios in your life

  • Major life decisions.
  • Religious changes.
  • Religious enlightenment.
