Walking, Running, Falling & Flying In Dreams

In a nutshell, movement. Sometimes in dreams it’s uninhibited. We’re walking along peacefully, running freely, or flying effortlessly through the sky, high up in the clouds. I recall a dream of jumping playfully from one cloud to another, almost like a game of hopscotch. It was one of those dreams you don’t want to wake up from.

But I’ve also had my fair share of those dreams that jolt you awake. Dreams of falling uncontrollably or dreams where you’re trying to run from something (or someone) only to feel like your feet are stuck in concrete and you can’t get any traction. You know the ones, your heartbeat starts increasing and you may even begin to sweat as your pursuers gain on you. It’s actually a relief to wake up from those dreams!

In today’s post, I’m going to talk a little bit about what all this means. I’ll also be following it up next week with a FBLive session in my online community “Dreams, Riddles & The Prophetic“. (Which by the way, have you joined us yet?) These FBLive sessions allow me to interact more personally with those of you who are interested in discussing and learning more about dreams, biblical dream interpretation, spiritual gifts and operating in the revelatory ways of the Spirit. I hope you’ll check it out. But for now, let’s get back to movement.

Snakes in Dreams

Of all the different types of dreams I help interpret for people, dreams involving snakes are by far some of the most unnerving and yet the most common types of dreams I receive. They have a way of making our skin crawl, and they can be so vivid, that we wake up with a sense of urgency to discover their meaning.

While there are various types, colors, and sizes of snakes that appear in dreams, (all of which add more detail to the overall interpretation of the dream) I’ve learned that for the most part, snakes are a common metaphor for the same thing: Continue reading

Unexpected Financial Curveballs

LOOK at the birds of the air; they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your Heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they?” Matthew 6:26 NKJV

I felt this message drop in my heart today for someone…no, some people (plural) who are facing unexpected financial….tensions. I almost wrote using the word “crisis“. But in that, I felt the Lord say, “No. That’s exactly it. The enemy is presenting what’s been thrown at them as a crisis. But it’s not.Continue reading

Purim: A Day Of Turnaround

There is great significance in specific biblical dates and times, months and years, seasons and appointed times. Understanding the larger timescale, (or rhythm, actually) that we’re a part of can give us wisdom in how to move forward. It can also help shed light on something that may be going on bigger picture. 1 Chronicles 12:32 says of the sons of Issachar that they were  “men who understood the signs of the times and knew the best course for Israel to take.” The sons of Issachar were not just skilled in the signs of the times, they also knew the law. Today, this level of understanding – paying attention to the times and knowing God’s ways, really does give us special insight in knowing what course of action to take. Continue reading
