Lunar Phase: Half Moon Waning
So my favorite brain Bill Hicks was in my dreams last night. Oooh, it was exciting.
I as sharing how much I loved him, deep deep in my heart. We were discussing life in 2011/12. We were sitting on a gigantic Labyrinth, much like the one they build in the middle of Toronto.
I kept pointing to this Church like building off into the distance and mumbling something like, that is where I came from. That being said, I meant that under the church there was a tunnel to some kind of subway system....
To see the outside of the church in your dream, signifies sacredness and spiritual nourishment. It is representative of your value system and the things you hold sacred.
To dream that you are inside a church, suggests that you are seeking for spiritual enlightenment and guidance. You are looking to be uplifted in some way. Perhaps you have made some past mistakes which have set you back on your path toward your goals. With proper support, you will get on the right track again. Alternatively, the dream may also mean that you are questioning and debating your life path and where it is leading. You are reevaluating what you want to do.
To dream of seeing a church in the distance, denotes disappointment in pleasures long anticipated.
To enter one wrapt in gloom, you will participate in a funeral.
Dull prospects of better times are portended.

Dreaming about being in a church is more common than most people realise. This may be so due to the fact that most of us went to church as children. From a very early age we had to go to church and were taught that there was a God. This was important in our life and to our families. Dreaming about churches, cathedrals, synagogues, or any other place of worship may represent our childhood associations with religion. At times, the dream may be a muddled childhood memory. The church could represent a need for greater spirituality in the dreamer's life. It may express religious beliefs, everyday occurrences, issues of safety, security and strength through community and religious expression. None of us can escape the age-old questions, "Who am I?" and, "What is the meaning of life?". Coping with our own physical mortality is a very big deal. Both our conscious, and unconscious minds are continually working and bringing issues of relevance and concern into our awareness. If you dream that you are praying in a church, you could be in need of comfort. Think about the details of your dream and make an attempt to honestly understand its meaning.
All things that flow and grow were regarded in early religions as a symbol
of life: fire represented the vital craving for nourishment, water was chosen for its
fertilizing powers, plants because of their verdure in spring-time. Now, all—or
very nearly all—symbols of life are also symbolic of death. Media vita in morte
sumus, observed the mediaeval monk, to which modern science has replied La vie
c’est la mort (Claude Bernard). Thus, fire is the destroyer, while water in its
various forms signifies dissolution, as suggested in the Psalms. In legend and
folklore, the Origin of life—or the source of the renewal of the life forces—takes
the form of caves and caverns where wondrous torrents and springs well up (38).
To dream of being a long way from your residence, denotes that you will make a journey soon in which you may meet many strangers who will be instrumental in changing life from good to bad.
To dream of friends at a distance, denotes slight disappointments.
To dream of distance, signifies travel and a long journey. To see men plowing with oxen at a distance, across broad fields, denotes advancing prosperity and honor. For a man to see strange women in the twilight, at a distance, and throwing kisses to him, foretells that he will enter into an engagement with a new acquaintance, which will result in unhappy exposures.
To see a building in your dream, represents the self and the body. How high you are in the building indicates a rising level of understanding, awareness or success. If you are in the lower levels of the building, then it refers to more primal attitudes and/or sexuality.
To see a building in ruins or damaged, indicates that your approach toward a situation or relationship is all wrong. You need to change. Your own self-image may have suffered and taken some blow.
To dream that a building collapses, indicates that you are losing sight of your ambitions and goals. Your pursuit for material gains is failing.
To dream that you or someone fall off a building, suggests that you are descending into the realm of unconscious. You are learning about and acknowledging aspects of your unconscious. Alternatively, it symbolizes your fear of not being able to complete or succeeding in a task.
To dream that you are scaling or climbing a building, indicates that you are getting carried away by your ambitions.

Did you see a light at the end of the tunnel, or were you trapped in a tunnel unable to determine your location? The tunnel could represent a variety of things. If it was not an unpleasant experience, it may symbolise a transitional period and a passage into new levels of understanding or ways of living.

To dream someone is pointing at you, suggests feelings of self guilt or even shame. You are being accused of some wrongdoing.
An architectonic structure, apparently aimless, and of a pattern
so complex that, once inside, it is impossible or very difficult to escape. Or it may
take the form of a garden similarly patterned. Ancient writings mention five great
mazes: that of Egypt, which Pliny located in lake Moeris; the two Cretan labyrinths of Cnossus (or Gnossus) and Gortyna; the Greek maze on the island of
Lemnos; and the Etruscan at Clusium. It is likely that certain initiatory temples
were labyrinthine in construction for doctrinal reasons. Ground-plans, sketches
and emblems of mazes appear fairly frequently over a very wide area, but principally in Asia and Europe. Some are believed to have been conceived with the
purpose of luring devils into them so that they might never escape. It is to be
supposed, therefore, that, for the Primitive, the maze had a certain fascination
comparable with the abyss, the whirlpool and other phenomena (8). Nevertheless, Waldemar Fenn suggests that some circular or elliptical labyrinths in prehistoric engravings—those at Peña de Mogor, for example—should be interpreted as
diagrams of heaven, that is, as images of the apparent motions of the astral bodies. This notion is not opposed to the previous one: it is independent of it and, up to
a point, complementary, because the terrestrial maze, as a structure or a pattern,
is capable of reproducing the celestial, and because both allude to the same basic
idea—the loss of the spirit in the process of creation—that is, the ‘fall’ in the
neoplatonic sense—and the consequent need to seek out the way through the
‘Centre’, back to the spirit. There is an illustration in De Groene Leeuw, by
Goosse van Wreeswyk (Amsterdam, 1672), which depicts the sanctuary of the
alchemists’ lapis, encircled by the orbits of the planets, as walls, suggesting in this
way a cosmic labyrinth (32). The emblem of the labyrinth was widely used by mediaeval architects. To trace through the labyrinthic path of a mosaic patterned
on the ground was once considered a symbolic substitute for a pilgrimage to the
Holy Land (28). Some labyrinths shaped like a cross, known in Italy as ‘Solomon’s
knot’, and featured in Celtic, Germanic and Romanesque decoration, are a synthesis of the dual symbolism of the cross and the labyrinth; they are known, for this
reason, as the ‘emblem of divine inscrutability’. It is not difficult to make out, in
the centre of the pattern, the figure of the swastika, which adds to the basic
symbolism a suggestion of rotating, generating and unifying motion (4). For Diel,
the maze signifies the unconscious, and also error and remoteness from the fount
of life (15). Eliade notes that the essential mission of the maze was to defend the
‘Centre’—that it was, in fact, an initiation into sanctity, immortality and absolute
reality and, as such, equivalent to other ‘trials’ such as the fight with the dragon.
At the same time, the labyrinth may be interpreted as an apprenticeship for the
neophyte who would learn to distinguish the proper path leading to the Land of
the Dead (17).
To see or dream that you are in a labyrinth, indicates your desires to get to the center of some issue or problem. Alternatively, it suggests that you are feeling trapped in some situation. You feel lost and that there is no way out.
If you dream of a labyrinth, you will find yourself entangled in intricate and perplexing business conditions, and your wife will make the home environment intolerable; children and sweethearts will prove ill-tempered and unattractive.
If you are in a labyrinth of night or darkness, it foretells passing, but agonizing sickness and trouble.
A labyrinth of green vines and timbers, denotes unexpected happiness from what was seemingly a cause for loss and despair.
In a network, or labyrinth of railroads, assures you of long and tedious journeys. Interesting people will be met, but no financial success will aid you on these journeys.
Seeing a labyrinth in your dream means that you will be involved with my complicated situations where your domestic sphere will be quite intolerable. Dreaming that you are in a labyrinth of green vines and timber means an unexpected turn of happiness where despair and loss was anticipated. Dreaming that you are in a labyrinth of night or darkness indicates bitter trouble and sickness.
To dream that you are sitting, indicates your indecision. You do not know what you want to do about something. It also suggests that you are idling and wasting your life away.
