1- A church represents our feelings about organised religion. In dreams it can be a placc of sanctuary, particularly in the sense that we can have a shared belief with other people. This may be as much to do with a shared moral code as with a code of personal behaviour.
2- A church building may or may not be considered to be beautiful, but its image links with our appreciation of beautiful objects which mark and enhance our sense of worship. We link with the forces of life within us which enable us to live life more fully.
3- A church becomes a ‘world centre’ since it marks all that is holy and essential in our lives.... church buildings dream meaning

The whole building seemed to be built in a white and gold design.
The gold pans shimmered in the sun. I gazed at this wonderful sight for some time and felt such a wonderful feeling of upliftment, my tiredness gone’ (Johan E). As in the example, the powerfully regenerative side of our inner life or feelings; the world of experience we have created inwardly by our thoughts, meditation, actions; our sense of contact with life itself. Also the moral rules we make decisions from (such rules may not be ‘Christian’ if they kill much of our inner life); moral authority, our relationship with the community. Occasionally baptism, marriage, death, the mother or refuge.
Walking past church: not entering into contact with the best in us—or our anger towards dogma. Example: The priest was going to question and assault my friend in connection with some opinion he had offended the church with. I went to stand near him to give him moral suppon, and physical help if necessary. I hated seeing anybody degraded.
The priest saw my move and sent three thug type men to shoulder me out. They surrounded me to knock me down. I went beserk and knocked them all over the place with kicks and punches’ (John P). In the example John sees the dogmas of the Church as an assault and degradation of human qualities of love and moral suppon. ... church, chapel, temple dream meaning

Dreaming of ground zero is a breakdown/breakthrough dream, as in the Buddhist deity of death and destruction that is an essential catalyst to transformation and change. This dream can symbolize the necessity to come down to earth and connect with what is truly important in life and reassess your values. This dream could also signify that you are processing and venting out your feelings about the events of September 11th or the war on Terrorism.

Alternatively, do you feel somehow soiled and grubby? If your dream depicted a pig happily rolling in the mud, do you need to take a more down-to-earth approach in waking life? If your dream depicted you being sucked into the ground or into mud, do you feel caught in a situation that is draining you and about which you feel powerless to do anything? Ask yourself who, or what, the mud or sand in the dream may have represented. Is anyone, or anything, in your life dragging you down? Or have you become a prisoner of your own inhibitions, so that you are stuck in the mud?
If you find yourself off the ground in your dream, this may suggest that you are losing connection with your roots of family or culture, or living in a state of mind that does not connect you with everyday reality. This lack of grounding may also be occasionally shown as being on a high building. Finally, if the earth is soft and difficult to walk on, you are probably finding your present life hard to deal with. Negative emotions are bogging you down. But if the earth is dry and firm, then you are feeling on firm ground as far as relationships and creativity are concerned.

If you are walking on clay, for example, this stresses the importance of resilience on your life’s path. The symbolism of grass in dreams may come from its green color, which is a symbol of renewal and revitalizing energy. According to Freudians, grass is a symbol of pubic hair. A dream of lying in the grass may express a simple desire for relaxation or, like other dreams of soft grass, sand, moss or water, a desire to return to the comfort and security of the mother’s womb.
If you were cutting grass in your dream, is there an aspect of your life that needs to be restricted or cut back on? If you were gathering grass to make hay, the dream may be urging you to make the most of a situation in waking life and to seize the day.

Dreaming of a grave or graveyard is an indication that you must resolve or deal with your feelings concerning the inevitability of death. It may be that you are trying to deal with feelings concerning someone who has died. Alternatively, part of your personality may have been killed off or is buried—or cut off—from the outside world. To dream that you are in a graveyard signifies sadness, unresolved grief or ambivalent feelings about death. It can also represent those parts of yourself that you have killed off or have stopped using. From a spiritual perspective, a graveyard is not only a place of death but also a place of spiritual regeneration and rebirth. To see a mausoleum in your dream signifies possible health issues or anxiety about your health.... church / graveyard dream meaning
If you dream of cracking the shell in this way, this signifies that you have a great desire to learn the truth about a situation and will go to any lengths to find out what information might be hidden.
On the other hand, if you dream about eating shelled peanuts out of a jar, this indicates that you want to know the truth without having to work for it, and you might be satisfied with less than the total truth.
Do you see nuts scattered on the floor in your own house in a dream? This means that love and harmony in the family awaits you. For a man, such a dream prophesies major acquisitions, and not in vain, but necessary ones, the interpreter pleases.
Harvesting groundnut in a dream is a sign of profit, but not an easy one. And if you see in a dream how you dig up peanuts and peel them from the shell, this is a symbol of the fact that you will spend a lot of effort, nerves and energy doing the work, but you will receive huge dividends for this.
Eating peanuts without beer in a dream is a sign of excellent health, the Eastern interpreter predicts. But, if you want to know why you dream of eating salted peanuts with beer in the company of friends, then refer to the explanations of the Gypsy interpreter. According to his version, such a dream prophesies a decision in an urgent matter.
If you dreamed about sweet peanuts, remember what exactly the kernel was "shrouded" in in a dream for the correct interpretation. Here is how the dream books explain why such visions appears in a dream:
Dreaming Lens: What kind of church was in your dream? What was the denomination or religion being practiced there? What state was the church in? Was this a church or temple from your daily life? Why were you there?
Personal Focus: Churches, temples, and mosques are the center of spiritual life for any community. Just like a house in a dream, any building can be interpreted as representing one’s current sense of self. In this way, any place of worship ultimately points to your relationship with spirituality and religion. Because this element of life can be particularly controversial, it is very important that you make a clear distinction between the universal meaning of church as connecting to matters of spirituality and whatever personal feelings you harbor about organized religion.
The state the building is in is an important part of your interpretation. A church or temple that is in disrepair is likely pointing to your spiritual life suffering through neglect. A more modern building may connect to newer spiritual perspectives whereas an older structure may correlate with a more traditional viewpoint.
What is happening within the church or temple in your dream is something to consider as well. If the event in your dream is in alignment with the typical uses of such a place, a more literal interpretation may be in order. However, if there is a contradiction taking place, your own sense of spiritual confusion or inconsistency may be what is being expressed.
A church has long been synonymous with safety from worldly dangers in the form of protective sanctuary. A person could be considered safe within the confines of a church from all enemies, political and spiritual. Once inside, an individual cannot be harmed by the enemy, whether that enemy is the government or a legion of demons. Consider the possibility that this dream image is suggesting a need to receive the ultimate level of protection from unseen dangers. ... church/temple dream meaning
