What do you remember about your dreams?

    We all have bizarre dreams, but usually when we wake up we forget what they were about.  The most recent one I had, myself and two other people were arriving at someone's house.  We parked the car and then suddenly we were on a whirlwind race through cobble stoned streets and huge buildings and mazes.  We lost track of where we were.  Suddenly one of the people with me used someone's phone and threw it on the ground.  Then my phone got used and the purple phone fell to the ground and crashed.  "My phone!"  I cried out.  "You broke my phone!"  I picked up the mangled phone and suddenly it still rang. 
    And then at that point, we tried to figure out how to get back to our friends house that we were supposed to be visiting.  At first I didn't know where to go and then I remembered I had the address in my pocketbook. 
    And then I woke up and glad that the purple phone was an old phone, and my new phone wasn't broken.

      To answer the question of the OP

         When I was younger I had visions of all kinds of stuff mostly about potential futures (for me to choose from) and other stuff ....
        but now I just dream dreams.

         and as somebody else said ...   forget them ???   among other things?

    This is the interpretation giving to me from the Holy Spirit: You are going through a spiritual battle. An internal waring against one self concerning  spiritual values. Only you and God know of the battle reality. Through this dream God is revealing to you his truth's.

                You are all the characters in your dream!

    The car is: Your thoughts, intentions and movements.

    The whirlwind racing: Being your inner self; feeling out of control and lost.

    The use of the phone:Representing contact (with God) The friend.

    The phone being thrown to the ground and breaking: Representing your views of God being crushed by another, those united in your same principle.

    The color purple: Representing, the dream being a message from God, for the color purple represent (royalty) the authority of kings. God is (King), thus, representing the Lord, his authority as King. (He being your trusted friend).

    The phone being mangled, yet, still performed and your panic of believing it to be gone: Being confirmed by God that things are not as they appear.

    The phone represent contact: Those desiring him (call on him). Confirming: He is still much in control and performance in your life. God word is assured!  No one can destroy his plan of purpose!
    The pocket book: Representing your personal self/ the inner spirit where God and the Holy Spirit dwell, which contains the direction for which he guides you; Thus, God confirming: You are okay! You are not lost. He is still with you.   

    The dream is warning you against spiritual danger. God is saying: Refrain from being judgemental and Be still!

      Rhonda, how can you possibly think that the Holy Spirit is talking to you about jfay's dream? Suppose someone else comes up with an interpretation that is different from yours but also claimed the Holy Spirit was talking to them. Who's going to be right?

      Ive been a 'Christian' for 26 years and if I had a penny for every time someone claimed the Holy Spirit was giving them revelation......

      I once had a vivid dream that I was being chased around the Starship Enterprise by a flying cheapy crappy pen, and a tub of yoghurt. Think God was trying to tell me something or was it a meaningless dream?

        If that was the original starship Enterprise, that was probably your subconscious telling you to keep track of how much dairy you were ingesting. If it was the one Picard commanded, you've got problems in your word document program. That was your subconscious telling you to write, not type. And no, I have no divine guidance. You can take it for what it's worth.

    Rhonda, why would God make me dream that I'm at an Alaskan circus populated by goats and bowls of rice pudding?  If God is talking to me through my dreams, I'd like him to stop, because it's been an awkward conversation.

    I do not interpret dreams by acts of fun. It is only when I'm directed by the Holy Spirit, who is the one fulfilling the information. When the mind is troubled one will have disturbing dreams. Some things digested before retiring will allow for troubled sleep. The dreams that are very vivid and long remembered after awakening are visions (a message).  As for your reply it is a hoax. You are just being silly! As for your request to God; You are standing there at the waterfront, tell him yourself, he's watching you there in the distance, see how beautiful it appears.

      How the Holy Spirit directs you? Does he do it like he used to do with Jesus?

    When ever I have vivid dreams I always record them as soon as awake.Later after listening to them, many times they are warning. I take heed and prevent a lot of trouble and hardship. My vivd reams always come true in three days

    I think dreams are messages.  Some are obvious to us because we know what we've watched on tv before bed or what worries are already on our minds, but there are many that I look for the messages in them. I have a Hub (not a very well written one) called Diary of a Dreamer where I documented most of my recurring dreams. I do not discredit Rhonda's interpretation of the dream.  In fact, Rhonda, if you feel called to interpret my dreams I'd be delighted to learn what the Holy Spirit reveals to you.

    Wow, I just posted on another topic - Deja Vu, but this heading is so much closer to my story I will post here also.

    The best personal example of an unusual dream was a dream preview, in detail with emotions and in an extremely lifelike fashion, of a place as I walked through the area. An area I had never been to nor did I recognise it during the dream. An area so far removed from where I lived that I had not ever been there nor thought about the location before. The dream was so unusual in detail I felt as if I was there and I now, on waking, had a full memory of an event that took about 30 minutes.

    Well move on about three and a half years and there I was: walking along I opened a swing door at my university and I found myself just staring at the start of my dream. So I walked, with that tingle one gets up and down the spine, for the distance of the hallway, past very particular plants, a view into an internal atrium/garden and past some etched windows (all exactly as I dreamed), then on through more doors, out onto a grass slope and past some wood wartime huts painted white that looked over a view of a hill with some fields and sheep. Oh there was a lot more detail, colors and emotions. All were exact. Deja Vu or precognition? Well it was a silly topic - sheep and architectural detail; no big winnings on the horses, no profits from preview of the financial times! Just my personal time as I wandered down some worm hole or time preview or precognition. I was stunned. Such a banal 30 minutes yet what had just happened; I had broken every scientific law in the book!

    Being a science student I had to realise right then there were things in life that did not mesh with our mental maps of the universe. I did not dump logic or science nor take up some wacky sub belief. No I just accept it happened and I am in awe. What do I think? I think it was a small message to me that my life is and was at that time 'on track'. It was like someone just saying, calm down, somethings ahead will be hard, but trust and accept your own life. So I did and still do. It gave me courage to shift my consciousness away from the mundane daily events and to focus on life as a kind of route that held meaning and was deliberate.

    Things like this are fairly common but many persons hate to talk about the more bizarre events. As a doctor I know when people are being truthful and I should write a book about many of the first hand tales I have listened to. Please do not feel there is no mystery to us, to our universe and to our spirits. We are part of something that is much more than we can understand or explain. Our developing sciences are our attempts to be truthful, use the languages of truth wisely and honestly or suffer.

    I know there are times when sleep is a paranormal event. Enjoy.

    Mostly I forget my dreams.

    When I was a little kid living in a remote village; my mother told me a dream she has seen; and lo! the dreams started really happening before our very eyes.

    The dreams could be truthful.

    And there are dreams that one sees while awake; and one fullfills them in one life; to make plans for one's future. It is not daydreaming; one may name it good planning for future.

    I rarely forget my dreams. I can actually most of my dreams in full detail, especially recent ones. The only time I ever really forget is when it's been a few weeks or months and I just forget details like how I would forget a conversation with someone.
