Dream meaning of pilgrim

To dream of pilgrims, denotes that you will go on an extended journey, leaving home and its dearest objects in the mistaken idea that it must be thus for their good.

To dream that you are a pilgrim, portends struggles with poverty and unsympathetic companions.

For a young woman to dream that a pilgrim approaches her, she will fall an easy dupe to deceit.

If he leaves her, she will awaken to her weakness of character and strive to strengthen independent thought.

The concept of man as a pilgrim and of life as a pilgrimage is common to a great many peoples and traditions, for it accords with the great myth of the celestial origin of man, of his ‘fall’ and his hopes of being restored to the celestial realm, since the effect of all this is to make him something of a stranger during his stay on earth and to imprint the mark of the transitory upon his every step. Man leaves and returns to his place of origin—exitus and reditus. It is precisely this view of life as a pilgrimage that lends the Christian pilgrimage its special value. The following are the attributes associated with the symbolism of the pilgrim: the shell, the crook or staff, the well of the water-of-salvation which he finds in his path, the road, the cloak, etc. The idea is cognate with that of the labyrinth: to go on a pilgrimage is to come to understand the nature of the labyrinth, and to move towards the mastery of it as a means to the ‘Centre’.
