DREAM INTERPRETATION
First - Last (optional)
Examples: fear, shame, anger, annoyance, anticipation, yearning, etc. The emotional response after we wake up can be misleading. For example, if we dream of a person’s death and in the dream we are at peace, it does not follow that God is saying the person will die. The key to understanding what a dream is saying is always found in the emotions we feel while we are dreaming. Journal the feelings you had in your dream and don’t try to interpret now. You’re building a special message from God to you:

Although most of our dreams are in black and white, sometimes certain colored objects appear in them. Colors are symbolic, supplying additional information about the objects that are colored. Every color is like a coin, it has two sides. You determine the meaning of color by looking at the context, feeling and the message that you want to send. (Click Here to See “Color” in Appendix below) Journal the colors you saw in your dream:

4. DISCERNING OF SYMBOLS (LITERAL OR SYMBOLIC):

Discerning is deciding if a dream is symbolic (like a parable) or if it is literal (representing the exact picture). As a rule, if there is an object or person in a dream that cannot be taken literally, then the entire dream should be viewed as symbolic. Journal the symbols in your dream. The following is an example in italics.


Example: Backyard – previous experience; home – life’s dwelling place; spring – spirit of God; sand – improper foundation
Example: I dislike boats, which represents my purpose, moving quickly in my past and that I couldn’t be part of it. I felt left out or missed an opportunity due to something in my past.
(Click to See "Interpretating Dreams" in Appendix below)

Read the following questions and then journal your understanding or your first thoughts.

FRIENDS AND FAMILY MEMBERS ARE OFTEN USED AS SYMBOLS.
a. Sometimes they represent ourselves,
b. Sometimes they represent another friend or family member;
c. Sometimes they simply represent the person.

QUESTIONS TO ASK YOURSELF ABOUT SOMEONE YOU KNOW:
a. How are they connected to you: family, work
b. What is their name and the meaning in the name?
c. Describe the person with three adjectives.
d. Do you like/dislike or indifferent?

QUESTIONS TO ASK IF YOU DO NOT KNOW THE PERSON:
a. From their activity, how would you know them?
b. Is this person in other dreams? Ask God to reveal His heart, then in faith, pick up your pen and journal your understanding:
A. Are you actively involved in the dream? If so, then the dream is about you. What is God doing in your life now? Have you been asking Him for anything specific?
B. Are an observer in the dream? If so, you are called to pray. Why would God lay this person on your heart? How does He want you to pray for him/her?
C. A particular interpretation may "strike a chord" or "feel right". Journal that thought. Ask God for more. By applying the understanding or insight gained from the dream you may experience the interpretation as correct.
D. More than one interpretation may be just as valid. The dream may be saying several things to the dreamer. Is there a story in the Bible similar to the dream? A character in the Bible you could relate to?
E. Can the dream be applied literally to a current life concern? Have you been anxious or distressed about anything? Are you in the middle of a decision?
F. Does the dream compensate for some extreme in your waking attitudes or experiences?
G. If you experienced the dream in waking life what would you learn?

FINAL POINTERS

 

> Become a “Knower” of God’s Word and recognize it’s His desire for you to know His voice and to communicate with Him.

> Journal your dreams: Dan 7:1 “In the first year of Belshazzar king of Babylon, Daniel had a dream and vision of his head upon his bed then he wrote the dream and told the sum of the matters.”

> Record your emotions – you connect with your heart through emotions.

> Date the dream – a timeline will emerge as you watch your spiritual growth develop.

> Ask God for interpretation “Lord what are you saying?” Daniel. 7:15, 16 “I, Daniel, was grieved in my spirit in the midst of my body, and the visions of my head troubled me, I came near unto one of them that stood by and asked him the truth of all this, so he told me and made me know the interpretation of the things.”

> Seek for revelation. Daniel. 8:15 “And it came to pass when I, even I Daniel, had seen the vision and sought for the meaning, then behold, there stood before me as the appearance of a man.”

 

APPENDIX

The primary obstacle most dreamers must overcome to be able to understand their dreams is symbolism. The following topics will help you to decode the message that God has specially designed for you.

COLOR – this resource will help you understand that colors are symbolic, supplying additional information about the objects that are colored. For example, if you previously owned a blue car of a certain model and you dream of owning and driving that same car, God is probably talking about your past. The blue car represents an earlier period of your life. Back to Form

INTERPRETING SYMBOLS – this resource will help you discern when a dream is symbolic and when it is literal. If there is something in a dream that is not literal, however, then the entire dream should be interpreted as if the objects and sometimes even the people it contains are symbols. Back to Form

INTERPRETING DREAMS – Quick dream interpretations should be avoided. Even Daniel mulled over Nebuchadnezzar’s dream for an hour before he ventured an interpretation, and he knew the king’s lifestyle well. (see Daniel 4:18-19). This resource will take you step by step through symbols, emotions and color to prevent the interpretation process from jumping to conclusions. Back to Form

ADVANCED STEPS TO DREAM INTERPRETATION – this resource is for advanced dreamers. Many dreams are misinterpreted because the Dreamer or the Interpreter assumes the dream is about the characters in the dream when in fact, the dream could be about the Dreamer. Prophetic dreams are experienced solely by Christians. To correctly interpret, there are three steps: First, identify the orientation, is it past, present or future? Secondly, is it a healing dream, internal/prophetic or just soulish? Here are some hints on which category the dream falls into Internal/Prophetic, Healing or Soulish?
