In interpreting dreams, a very common theme I come across is patterns. Stripes, camouflage, spots, dots, zig-zag patterns just to name a few. These patterns can show up on clothing, accessories, on buildings, or on vehicles. And then there’s those times when we’ll see patterned insects or animals show up in our dreams too. What does all this mean? For example, why would someone appear in a patterned shirt as opposed to just a plain colored one? Is there more meaning behind the patterns we see? Continue reading
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.
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
In my last post, I shared about how the color blue can be used in dreams to point to the revelatory or prophetic ways of God. But blue is such a unique color to dream in, because it can take on so many different shades! Today, let’s take a look at another common shade to dream in: Pale Blue. Continue reading
Blue is a very interesting color to dream in. It can be multilayered in it’s interpretation because it can take on so many different shades. As I’ve said before, whenever we see certain colors stand out in dreams, we have to first take a look at the dream big-picture to see what the dream is communicating. Colors then, can add extra detail, “flavor” or meaning to the interpretation of the dream. Let’s look at one of the primary uses of the color blue. Continue reading
In my last post, I shared what the positive side of the color red typically means in dreams. Today, I’d like to look at a particular dream in which red was used to give the dreamer a warning. Continue reading
Colors in dreams are VERY significant. And they can have a very positive or negative meaning, depending on the overall context of the dream. The color red is one of the most common colors to dream in. Let’s talk about what it means. Continue reading
Hallways. Bridges. Pass-throughs. Elevators and escalators. Narrow straits that connect two larger bodies of water. What do these all have in common? They are stretches of tight spaces – some longer than others – that take us from where we have been to where we are going. And I have learned that every major transition in life includes one of these tight spaces. Continue reading
