1- Dreaming of being in a situation where we arc worshipping something such as an idea, a person, a concept or an object is to be opening ourselves up to its influence.
If we are not particularly religious but find ourselves in the middle of an act of worship we mav need to look at how we deal with a common belief svstem or set of principles.
2- Sometimes, as we move towards a greater sense of Self, dream images materialise which indicate that we arc in a position to be worshipped. This may mean we need to take a careful look at whether we are developing an inflated idea of our own importance, or whether we are actually learning to accept that part of ourselves which is of value to other people.
To be worshipping an object which is not a religious image may suggest that we are paying too much attention to whatever that object represents.
For instance, we may be too materialistic, be paying too much attention to sex and so on.
3- An Act of Worship is an acknowledgement of the power that belief has.
Dreaming abqut being part of a worship service: you are looking for spiritual guidance and reflection.
An external problem can be solved with the help of spiritual guidance. Praying reverendy: your soul is pleading for help. Find an impartial counselor, or pay more attention to your religious needs and/or attitudes. Listening reverendy to a worship service expresses the need for a deeper, more spiritual life.
Depth Psychology: See Altar, Confession, Praying.
Acknowledging higher levels of consciousness; honoring the God within. Also, cutting self off from inner God, looking without to something or someone separate from yourself. One may worship many things which come from a consciousness of separateness; only inner truth will lead you to fulfillment and wholeness.
Dreams of worshiping someone reflect your ability to recognize the beauty, value and magic in yourself and others.
If you have put someone on a pedestal, then this dream may be a sign to remember that you are above and below no one.
A dream about worship can embody a straightforward religious meaning. It could also be a representation of something that we adore, as in the expression “He worships the ground she walks on.”
Worshipping: opening oneself to the influence of what is being worshipped—an idea, a person, an object. Worshipped: inflated sense of self.
Prayer, peace, meditation; centering is necessary. This is a frequent dream image when life is oriented too much to materialism.
