A dream about standing at a lectern suggests you have a message or opinion that you want to share with others. There are many different takes on that idea though.

It can also indicate a fear of public speaking or a need for recognition. Seeing someone else at a lectern can symbolize a need for guidance or advice. It may also reflect your perception of authority figures or your feelings towards a particular person in your waking life.

A lectern is a very deep and multifaceted dream experience to really clarify. To really say with any kind of confidence, it would be necessary to get more information about the dreamer's life story and mindset.

Dreaming of oneself at a lectern can be a manifestation of the ego's desire for intellectual dominance or a reflection of the superego's aspiration for moral authority.

Thinking a bit more creatively... It might also signify an unconscious grappling with the Oedipal complex, where the lectern represents the paternal figure. Observing another at a lectern, by contrast, could symbolize the id's yearning for a leader or a mentor, or perhaps a latent envy towards a perceived superior intellect. It may also denote a transference of authority, where the speaker embodies a figure of respect or fear from your waking life.0

This person may embody a spiritual guide or mentor, urging you to listen and learn. It's a reminder to remain open to wisdom from external sources, recognizing that the universe often speaks through others. Both of these dreams emphasize the importance of communication in your spiritual journey.
