Dreams & Revelation

Proverbs 25:2 says that "It is the glory of God to conceal a matter, but the honour of kings is to search out a matter."  This passage of scripture very accurately describes the search that we, as beloved children of our heavenly Father, must embark upon in order to understand the ways of God in our personal lives and in the lives of all our loved ones.  We do this first of all through prayer, but also through scripture and good books, through our sacramental life and through other and varied means.  But Linda and I also take into account our dream life because we're convinced that God speaks to us through that means. It's been such an exciting journey as we've endeavoured to "search out the matter" by writing down our dreams and taking the time to ponder them and talking to God about them. This obviously involves time and effort, but Jesus Himself promised us that those who seek will find!

Dreams are night parables, riddles or enigmas if you will, that contain a precious, hidden treasure.  When we interpret them correctly, they can become agents of change in our lives because through them God instructs, guides, encourages, warns, and forms us.  God really enjoys communicating with us and doing so, even while we sleep, isn't a problem for Him.

In order to encourage you in your own relationship with God through dreams, we are developing this "mini-course" where you can learn how to decode dreams and apply the message to your lives.  We personally have found it to be a very exciting journey!

The videos below all build one upon another. In this first section we begin by giving some foundational information on dreams in general and then move on to the 20 most common types of dreams, followed by 20 different categories of dreams.

In the second section, you will find videos that explain the symbolic meaning of different dream elements.

Finally, in the third section, you will find real, "live" dreams that people have had and the interpretation that we've come up with.

Dream Categories 6-10. We present 5 more dream categories - such as a dark dreams for example - that will help you to decipher their meaning much more accurately.

Dream Elements:

When God sends us a dream, He uses everything that is part of creation and part of our lives to get His message across.  This means that people, animals, buildings, vehicles, colours, flowers, plants and food can all be used to convey His will, guidance, protection and warnings into our lives.  Jesus used the same approach teaching parables to the crowds. Those who came to understand the parables were those who asked the Lord - in a more intimate setting - to explain the symbolic meaning of these stories.  And the Lord graciously taught them because He saw their hunger to learn and to understand.

 

It's the same with us.  The first decoder of dreams is of course, the Holy Spirit and it's Him we need to consult first of all.  But we also need skill.  Upon awakening from a dream, we will obviously wonder what it means, but the most frequently asked question is, "What do the pictures mean?  And that's where the study of dream elements comes in.  The symbolic meaning of each element can come from our own lives, our preferences, our culture but most importantly, from scripture.

We've started producing videos on some very common dream elements that people find in their night parables to help you on your journey towards understanding the metaphorical and symbolic language of God.  You can also visit our dream posts for further instruction.

Actual Dreams & Interpretations:

In this section, you will find dreams that real, live people have been given by a wise, good and loving Father.  These are dreams that either Linda or I have had and that friends and subscribers have sent in so we could share them with you.
We recount the dream and then help you to understand the message by teaching you how to interpret the meaning of all the elements that make up the storyline and also how to put it all together. There is no doubt that the Holy Spirit is the One we should consult immediately as we try to decipher our dreams, but there is also a great amount of study needed to acquire the skill of interpretation and its application into our lives.

We hope to eventually produce more videos on dreams that biblical or historical persons have had, where God helped to guide, instruct and warn His people. Looking at those dreams and studying them reveals the ways of God to us.
