DreamsMaster: Is the Spanish priest in the dream someone familiar to you in the waking world? If so, the dream could be an intuition that this person is not to be trusted.
If you do not know this Spanish priest in your waking life, then this dream character is symbolic, and could represent inner conflicting feelings toward religion.
A key question is, what was scary about his gaze? In other words, what specifically were you afraid of? For example, did it feel like the priest had scary or unacceptable intentions toward you? Or, did it feel like the priest could see right through you?
Imagine for a moment that the priest represents a part of yourself, perhaps a part of yourself that is unacceptable to you, or a part of yourself that you don’t trust. Think about how you would describe this Spanish priest, and then ask yourself if you identify with any of these qualities.
You might also try having an imaginary dialog with the Spanish priest – visualize yourself standing tall, looking him straight in the eyes, and asking: What is the meaning behind your gaze?
Being scared in a dream implies a sense of powerlessness somewhere in your waking world. If the fear is based on conflict within yourself, then the goal is to shake hands with the fear and get back in touch with your personal power.
