You Need Your Dream To Be Interpreted, Then Say it Here

    karobiposted 7 years ago

    Hello Fellow forumites, I know from my experience in the vineyard, Interpretation of dream I mean 'correct interpretation can pose a lot of challenge if you do not have the proper experience the spirit of God'. And there is one thing that I know of a sure is that there is nothing that happen to any human being that is by chance, it must first of all take place spiritually first before it manifestation in the physical realm. What I am saying in essence is this, there are a lot of Christians today that God have shown many things or things that will happen to them in the nearest future some time positive and other time Negative in order for them to pray and forestall the occurrence. But what happen due to ignorance or bad interpretation they fall prey to the devil and his agents. so if you have any dream like that and seek an interpretation to it post it here by the grace of God an interpretation will be given through the inspiration of the Holy-spirit.

    Thanks
    Bro. John

      Why not interpret my dream without me letting you know what I dreamed about. Daniel did it for Nebuchadnezzar.

      Dan 2:1  And in the second year of the reign of Nebuchadnezzar Nebuchadnezzar dreamed dreams, wherewith his spirit was troubled, and his sleep brake from him.

      Dan 2:5  The king answered and said to the Chaldeans, The thing is gone from me: if ye will not make known unto me the dream, with the interpretation thereof, ye shall be cut in pieces, and your houses shall be made a dunghill.

      Dan 2:28  But there is a God in heaven that revealeth secrets, and maketh known to the king Nebuchadnezzar what shall be in the latter days. Thy dream, and the visions of thy head upon thy bed, are these;


      Pretty simple isn't it. Interpretations are a dime a dozen, but the spirit of the Lord only dwells where He is welcome.

        Hello SirDent, That is true Prophet Daniel did it   in the Bible, but you must know that is an exceptional case and God want to use that case to tell the king and the people of Babylon that, there is a God that knows every thing under the sun. So let me assure you that if God still want to use your case to prove his majesty He can still do it. Have a nice day.

    I had a reoccurring dream for decades.
    I was in the basement of our house with a friend. We were young boys, just playing with toys. All of a sudden my dad would come down the stairs, all the furnishings, toys and everything would disappear exposing only grey, concrete walls and floor. My friend would vanish and I would be completely naked standing in front of my dad, and he would grab me, put my head in one hand, and with his knuckles smash them into my skull, crushing it. Then when I was pulverized, he would leave me in a puddle of blood to die.

    I know what the dream means. I want to know what *you* think it means.

    And for the record, I am troubled no more by it. But the dream is real. It occurred over, and over again.

    What do you think it means?

      My interpretation would be that you thought your dad wasn't very happy with your performance. You thought he despised you. Maybe because he was very hard on you. Very strict. and you where punishing yourself in the dream for that, instead of punishing your father.
      You respected him a lot and were afraid of him, even love was there as well.
      sorry, but I couldn't resist. I studied Psychology once big_smile

          That would be sheer ignorance. Everything happens for a reason.

          Therefore, the dream itself has a meaning or understanding, even if we don't at first realize what the meaning or understanding is about.

          Just a thought. smile No offense intended. Wasn't calling you ignorant.

      Faybe Bayposted 7 years ago in reply to this

      Boys and their toys are soon parted. Silly isn't it. The basement represents depth. These feelings are deep down. You're children deep down playing with toys. Your father wants you to grow up and be a man, but he never taught you how to be a man. He never picked you up when you were hurt and crying, never told you everything would be okay. He just said "Grow up, Be a man." Even when he was the cause of your pain.
      You are naked before him which means you are hiding nothing from him. You never tried to hide your need for his help in growing to be a man, but even if you were dying you think he would say "grow up, be a man"
      Growing up is so over rated smile

      Our psyche has three personalities, our child, adult and parent.
      Our parent personality is established by how our child perceived our real parents, their rules, emotions, and reactions to us.
      Buildings also represent our inner self and the rooms, are the chambers of our minds.

      Anytime your child was being the playful carefree child,  your parent would enter and always raised it's ugly restrictive head. When this happened everything, you perceived as good disappeared.  Your parent would not allow you to enjoy life.
      Your parent personality crushed your ideas and ability to be what you wanted to be.  It kept you from growing emotionally, mentally, or any other way you wanted to go. . than It literally left you to die and deserted you.

      That's the way I see it anyway.

    @ Daniel Carter, You said when you were still a young Boy isn't it? The interpretation is simply, I think that then your dad don't give you much room to play so because of that you always have the feeling that your Dad is hash hence the nightmare. Nothing to fear is just children mind

    I had this dream a few weeks ago where a man told me he had planted a bomb in my Nana's house and it would go off at midday, but I was to tell nobody otherwise he would kill me and all my family, so I tried to get all my family as far away from the bomb as possible, next thing I'm in the school I attended as a child, it's full of people just wandering around then we hear a massive bang. Iam then screaming for everyone to leave the building insisting it's a bomb, but everyone is looking at me asif I'm stupid. I then run outside panicking and can't find my daughter. We're stood in a big group and the man infront of me turns around and smiles kind of knowingly (if you know what I mean) at me, (it's my friend who passed away a couple of years ago) I try to talk to him but no words come out. He then puffs on his cigarette and looks away, then I wake up. This has happened twice! It's sooo strange.

          Ok
          disclaimer : I'm not a psychologist, so please don't take it too seriously.


          You have some memories of your Nana you don't like. And you want them deleted from your memory. So you make this situation in your dream, where the nana is in danger of disappearing.
          Then about your daughter.
          Something is bothering you. How old is she ? It looks like you don't like some situation about her. Can be some friends ?

          your friend who passed away.
          you're seeking his advice, unconsciously. But you know he can't help you obviously. You miss him, you think if he was alive ,he would be the person you would call if any problem appears.
          I think you have to find someone really reliable to tell him/her your fears.
          you haven't found anybody yet ?


          Please tell me if I'm right or wrong.
          I can take whatever. I'm not a shrink ! smile

            Right, well, the Nana part I don't think I have any memories of her or to do with her that I want deleted, unless they are maybe from back when I was really young and I can't remember- ya never know.

            My daughter is only 2 so I can't really dislike her friends yet haha, buuuutt, I really can't stand her dad (I know that sounds awful) and we are having issues over cantact, so maybe that's it?

            The third part about my friend is spot on, all of it.

              About your nana. try to remember. Maybe you heard  a conversation about her ? Or maybe unconsciously you felt abandoned by your parents ?
              anyway , it's not important.

          I hope I am not being rude by entering here. I have been lucky to have met a person who had the God given talent of interpreting dreams. As she interpretted mine I became more adept at it myself.
          I separate mine into two types. Prophetic and growth. I believe yours was a growth dream. The analysis then is through the key elements. Your love for your family and friends, your fear of losing them, and potential threats.
          Starting from the end, your friend who has passed away.  You are unable to talk to him (no words come out) because you know he cannot help you. He puffs on his cigarette, you secretly blame his lifestyle for his death and wonder if there was anything you could have done to prevent it. There wasn't that is why he smiles at you.
          Your daughter... She is the most precious thing you have in your life. You are afraid of losing her. You are protective of her but you know you cannot protect her from everything, she is your priority. Naturally, after trying to save others from the bomb, and having not seen her in your dream you are now thinking 'where is she?' This is a tool of the conscious mind to try to wake you.
          Now your Nana. And the school you attended as a child. These are elements of growth. (School = knowledge Elders=teaching) You have started a journey in which some of your earliest beliefs and teachings are being challenged. You do not know if what you are learning is true, and if it is, then is what they taught you false? You know if you ask you will be 'shot down' by their 'truths' but if you are to be the teacher and protector of those you love, then you must know what is true and what is fiction. (That is why all those people look at you like you are crazy, as if to say "it's not a bomb"

      For what it's worth, danger is always about your fears and your vulnerability. Fear of harm, losing your child, etc. If you start thinking about how the dream *feels* it will reveal a lot to you. There are also websites that will also tell you what certain images mean symbolically. You can google them.

      Usually, these things mean this (not in every case):

      Naked = helpless and vulnerable

      Falling = chaos, out of control, danger

      flying = freedom and power

      Disasters = also chaos, out of control

      Dead friends and relatives who reappear = unresolved issues most often. Sometimes they are actually *you* giving yourself a message that you have ignored. There may be other reasons as well.

      Okay, I'm done here. That's all from me. The rest you'll get help from other people or you can google it.

      Hope this helps, sophs.

          He has the right of it, I was probably wrong about your friend. My Granmother used to walk through me house in my dream shaking her head at the mess I'd gotten it into. May have been me trying to tell me to clean up my act. Your friend smiling may be you reassuring yourself that you can make it okay.

    Thanks, all, for your insights. It is appreciated.
    The dream is a direct result of the abuse of my childhood. I lived in fear for the first 20 years of my life of being murdered. There were a few attempts. My mother risked her life, and so did my grandparents. My dad had some brain damage from an accident as a teenager that also left his younger brother dead. In those days, he was not expected to live, and brain damage was never a subject or possibility until after I was married. He was diagnosed much later, and a brain map proved it. However, he was extremely intelligent and very, very capable. He just got angry way too easy, and his brain couldn't turn it off. I was one of his biggest triggers.

    It took almost 5 decades to forgive him. But with a lot of help, I did. I held his hand as he took his last breath.

    I have to be honest. I was a little pissed that someone could claim they could interpret dreams based on their understanding of God. So I wanted to do a bit of sabbotage and spout this dream. Maybe it wasn't fair. I have a pretty good understanding of dreams because I've been plagued with horrible ones for many, many years. But my life is pretty good, overall.

    There was another thread like this a few months back and I kind of hijacked it. It was just too easy for me to get involved.

    Thanks again.

        Your insight is pretty accurate, Faybe, which is no surprise.
        It's a long, long, very painful journey to heal from abuse even after years of it behind you. But you know what? Odd as it sounds, because of where I'm at in my life, I wouldn't trade the insights and peace that it's ultimately brought to me for anything. The severest experiences—if we are compelled to find meaning, not bitterness—can bring equally wonderful insights and ultimately, peace.

        Dreams are a self discovery. They are about us, more than anything else. Everyone in our dreams is a mirroring of ourselves in some way. That's what I've learned over and over. It took a long time to accept that, but I see much more clearly now.

    Well not so much now...it changes but it's the same house. It's on a beach and I seem to always almost drown there. It's very vivid and I actually feely myself drowning.

    In the real world..we don't go there, don't even know the house.

              Okay, House dreams are always about you. That is why the house is always the same (lucky you, my house is always changing in my dreams) Since the house is always the same your spirit is comfortable in your house. Your are happy with yourself. You do not want to change too much. Your family is there which is also good, you are intouch with your roots and traditional family values embodied by that image.
              You are at the beach, which represents clean and new, (the beach is constantly cleansed by the water, and constantly changing due to the surf and the tides.) The world is constantly changing too. You do not like change except in small doses. That is why you keep drowning. One part of you thinks you must change because of the changes around you, the other part refuses, rejects the change because of who you are.

              Now the devil, you know you are gifted, and you could make money off of your gifts (He brings you gifts) But you face him head on and let him know you will never use your gifts to serve him, nothing he has to offer appeals to you. You are a warrior here saying "Don't even try it. I see what you have and I don't want it."

                The house dream- I do hate Big, fast changes. That's spot on. I like them small and manageable and when I want things to change, even thought I know that'll never be the case.

                The beach bit as well...

                Cheers.

                This might sound stupid, but the house dream really messed with my head. It scared me! smile

                  Never be afraid of your dreams. The dream world is a place where God has blessed us with visions. We learn there and grow there and it is a battleground where we can fight a good fight without being harmed.
                  The Bible is full of dreams and the interpretations of them.
                  I used to have several different types of dreams. The worst were night terrors where I would awaken and some of the dreams elements would linger before my eyes until true wakefullness came. I had to figure out what was causing them before I could get rid of them.
                  I thank God for the relief from those terrors. I was living in the wrong place, working in the wrong place... I would never want to make those mistakes again. But I have been lucky, those terrors lead me in the right direction. It''s all good now. smile

    I published a hub on the topic of dream meanings A-Z if anyone wants a look. It is one of my highest viewed hubs and I still get questions asked from it. I wrote it based on dream meanings obtained from an excellent book I was given that I have to say is seldom wrong, and I have never failed to be impressed by the meanings it gives based on numerous key words.

    In the hub I give links as to where this book can be purchased, and I strongly feel every home should have a copy.

    The subconscious is an amazing thing, and the messages it sends us are for a reason. I don't know about the "God" aspect, but reckon that it is possible it is a combination of our own subconscious and that same subconscious working with any "powers that be" to get relevant messages to us.

      I have a book that talks of all sorts of fotune telling, including the interpretation of dreams. This person did not believe in it. Here is what he did:
      He made up a dream. He never actually had the dream, just made one up. Then he went to thirty different interpreters, and got thirty different interpretations. He thought he had finally disproved the theory that dreams could predict anyones future.
      Then one by one the interpretations started coming true. He thought that could never happen as he had made up the dream and not ever dreamt it. Luckily the dream he made up was benign enough that it did not cause any harm.

      Sir Dent
      You are obviously well versed in Daniel. You do not need me to interpret your dream. I have speant much time in my life interpreting Simon and Garfunkles song Sounds of Silence. It is such an amazing dream/song. I see the vision of it even today.
      We must learn that silence is not the way to a better life or a better world. Tell me your dream and i will interpret for you. But there are at least thirty different interpretations of a dream and all of them come true in time.

        Interpretations one come get from a book. That is way too easy. Interpretations are not always correct. Lots of people claim to haver this vision or power, (not sure what to call it). Daniel never claimed the power but his only claim was to know the one who could not only reveal the dream but also reveal the interpretation of it.

        If I tell you my dream, then it is too easy to give an interpretation. If I do not remember my dream, then what?

          Perhaps you didn't notice, I have no book. I ask God for guidance and then I disect the dream into it's parts. I have had no complaints yet. I am no prophet, and if you look back I give credit where credit is due. I have not studied this and am no psychic. Dreams come in several forms, I know two. Prophetic dreams usually vivd and come true, but you do not know it until it happens. This is Deja Vu.
          Growth dreams tell us our fears and how to overcome them. Sometimes these recur many time and in different forms.
          Night terrors are you spirit screaming at you that action must be taken for you are not going the right way. They are to motivate you to change because you are stagnant and not in the right place.

    Okay, my recurring dream involved being in an old hotel from the 1930's. I had to reach my room at the top. The staircase lined the edge of the hotel and you could see all the way down. There were places in the staircase that were unstable...no railing...rickety. I was glued to the side of the wall...inching my way up the stairs. Sweat dripping from my hands, even as I type this...my brow dripping with sweat. My fear overwhelming, my terror mounting. As I reach the top, I see my room. The door to my room. I must reach the door, open it, and go in to be safe. Yet I cannot reach it. There is a gap...I extend my body..I reach....I never reach my room. I wake up in terror screaming.   

    Now, this is the dream that got the attention of the producers on the reality show I was on. So they tried to re-enact this dream. Now, what do you think, my friend?

    I'd also like to mention I regularly dream of viper snakes hiding in crevices that strike out at me. I sometimes put my hand on them. Or I see them bite another person, sometimes a child.

    Here's another one for ya: I'm crossing the river on a bunch of logs and they are all alligators. Go figure!!

    I'm serious, what do you think?

      Deborah Sextonposted 7 years ago in reply to this

      The hotel represents your life..your room is a chamber of your mind, a certain level of consciousness you feel you need to reach.
      The staircase is the way to ascend, but there are missing parts, gaps in the method, it supplies nothing to help guide you/or it is hard to grasp. It's not a stable way to reach ascension. You are afraid that if you do ascend you will just fall and will never truly reach the level you seek. Reaching the top is slow because of this fear and the unstable method you are using. Although you can see the way there is something missing that causes you not to obtain your goal of transformation.

      At least this is how I see it.

    Well i don't know what dreams mean and what to do or deal with it. But i'm getting one dream ever since i was 12 year old. Dream is something  like this " i'm in a car and there is road from valley(similar to canyon) but there is lot of water in valley while driving there comes turn,car is close to falling in valley and i wake up at that point. One more thing is other than this dream, i see lot of snakes around me in dream. In dreams sometimes i saw them near my house or sometimes any random way in dream. Never found any snake attacking me in dream but i found myself attacking them. Thanks to isomnia, these days i'm rarely getting into dreams or maybe don't remember them.

    If you dream of normal things of occurrences in your life, these are just dreams. This is the mind storing your every action of your day deep into your mind.

    But there are Archetypal dreams that everyone had dreamt of at least one dream/at least once in your life.  These dreams feel more real than other dreams, and they are usually remembered vividly for the remainder of your life.

    Archetypal Dream Symbols: Dreams where every character represents a part of you.

    Snakes, Monsters=The Shadow self, need to use wisdom

    Children=The future, becoming, rebirth, child god

    Mansions/Houses with many rooms you are exploring=Self and chambers of the mind. Exploring/touching levels of consciousness or the need to.

    Running but feeling you are in slow motion.=Trying to get away from something. The something depends on why you are running. Is it a monster, the police etc. The slow motion means you feel you can't get ahead, or to the point of destination in life you wish to.

    At School seeing old friends or trying to get to class before you are late=The feeling you are naive and have much more to learn. Afraid you are lagging behind others and not equal to them. The need to look to your childhood for answers to the why of today.

    Being naked in public=Revealing too much, too soon, to too many people. Being vulnerable. Unable to hide our deepest secrets. How you feel determines the meaning. If it doesn't bother you, you are comfortable with whom you are.
    If uncomfortable there is something, you don't want exposed.

    Your teeth are falling out. Especially the front teeth. I have never read a good interpretation of this dream. Most feel it has something to do with our appearances.

    Other dream types:

    Psychic dreams/Night Visions: Someone dreams of an event only to find it occurs in waking life at a later date.

    False Awakenings: You have a dream that you wake up, only to find you only dreamt you awakened. Which is a part of lucid dreaming.

    Lucid dreams: In your dream, you are aware you are dreaming. With practice, you can use this knowledge to interact with your dreams and even change them.

    Hmm, so looks like my dream about accident in valley is lucid one.

    Deborah, when I had the dream of teeth falling out, I associated it with the Hebrew letter Shin. The image of Shin is tooth, but the deeper meaning associated with Shin is Cosmic Fire and Spirit. So I interpreted the dream as meaning I was beginning to lose contact with my spiritual side and had to do something about it.

    Last night I had a dream of being part of a crew on a canal boat. We stopped at a grand house. Lots of people came running out, men, women and children, white and black. They were from the 18th century and fleeing something. They got on the boat and we set off. We went through a lock. On the other side of the lock, we were in the present time. It was a sunny, happy day. Our refugees walked along the tow path, wondering about all the differences they saw in people's clothing etc, but they were lauging and smiling and everything was OK because they were safe.

    Snake dreams, monsters, other fearful animals and people:

    These represent our shadow selves,sex and instincts.. Our shadow selves are neither good or bad. They just are. The shadow selves aren't just the parts of us we hide from others, but are also the parts we try to hide or deny from/to ourselves.

    For instance every human has the capacity to do cruel things.
    Some have thoughts of murder, theft, adultery etc. But feel ashamed and try to hide this even from themselves (having thoughts doesn't mean we would actually do it) These are primordial/animal instincts

    Every human also has the capacity to do good things and to have great compassion. It's duality in the human mind. If we think one thing, it's opposite is there in our minds too. If we have a thought we want something, the other thought that we lack what we want pops into our heads.

    If we deny we have these shadow feelings (we hide from ourselves) they become a part of us and affect us in unpleasant ways. They show up in our dreams letting us know we need to accept that we are capable of bad things. Once we accept this about ourselves, it has no power over us. If we acknowledge and admit to ourselves the fact that we do occasionally have thoughts and feelings that are not so "GOOD" it actually helps to improve our minds and help us grow.

    Of course accepting our animal thoughts and actually carrying them out is not the same. Once we carry out our bad thoughts, that affects us even more negatively.

    So in dreams about snakes if you overcome or are not afraid of them, it means you are accepting this part of yourself.
    If you are overcome by a snake or are afraid of them, it means your shadow side is creating a complex in your personality.

    Snakes can also have other meanings.

    We were walking up the hill to the Parthenon in Athens. As we passed the temple of Asclepios, patron of doctors, a snake ran across our path. My partner took this as a sign of a personal welcome, because he is a doctor. The caduceus, symbol of medicine includes a snake. When he dreams of snakes, he associates them with professional matters.

    For me, the snake is one of the symbols of the Goddess, as exemplified in the Minoan Snake Goddess. So any dreams I have of snakes are associated with meeting the Goddess and learning Her wisdom.

    Jung wrote a lot about archetypal symbols. However, he also said that many symbols will have a personal meaning for an individual. If such a personal meaning is discovered, it takes precedence for that particular individual.

      I agree. In my first post where I mentioned snakes I said wisdom
      http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/35823?page=4#post805727

      When we integrate the shadow self, it also represents wisdom because it does make us wiser. Once we are truly wise we become the goddess.
