Dream meaning of cross

Dreams containing spiritual symbols such as the cross often do not show the context of the dream itself. You must take into account the fact that these elements in your dream will have the most relevance in your daily life, as it is the spirit that is trying to communicate with you.

The complex symbolism of the cross neither denies nor supplants the historical meaning in Christianity. But in addition to the realities of Christianity there are two other essential factors: that of the symbolism of the cross as such and that of the crucifixion or of ‘suffering upon the cross’. In the first place, the cross is dramatic in derivation, an inversion, as it were, of the Tree of Paradise. Like the Tree of Life, the cross stands for the ‘world-axis’.

Placed in the mystic Centre of the cosmos, it becomes the bridge or ladder by means of which the soul may reach God. There are some versions which depict the cross with seven steps, comparable with the cosmic trees which symbolize the seven heavens. The cross, consequently, affirms the primary relationship between the two worlds of the celestial and the earthly.

    This symbol is most associated with Christianity, but in fact the circle divided into four equal parts is the most ubiquitous of all spiritual symbols found in almost every civilization back through time.

    The earth is a circle divided into a cross by virtue of the North and South Poles combined with the eastern and western horizons. This makes the cross a truly universal symbol. If you have a personal association with Christianity, then you must use this in your interpretation. If not, still consider this a primal symbol representing the spiritual energy of all beings on Earth. Its presence in a dream may indicate a stirring of a mystical nature.

    Crosses represent many different things throughout ancient history. The cross, today a Christian symbol, was originally a pagan symbol, but dreaming of a cross today often symbolizes spiritual love and sacrifice or religious questioning. But crosses can have more ancient symbolism in dreams. They can represent spiritual protection, male power (in some cultures, the cross is a phallic symbol), creation, or the cycles of nature: life and death, the changing of the seasons, or the connection between Earth and heaven. Consider the context of the cross in your dream to discover what it means for you. Seeing or wearing a crucifix (a cross with the crucified figure of Jesus Christ on it) is more obviously a Christian symbol denoting sacrifice and forgiveness.

    To wear a cross in your dream means you have been forgiven.
    To see a cross over or on top of something suggests that you need protection from what that object or person represents.
    To see a cross in nature, formed by trees or clouds or animals, means you can find spiritual meaning for your life in the natural world. Nature is an important spiritual source for you right now and is worth exploring.
    To witness the crucifixion of Christ or of someone else suggests that someone has made a very important sacrifice for you.
    To dream you are being crucified or carrying a cross suggests that you have a martyr complex. Are you comfortable wearing that cross?
