Many years ago, I'd have taken no notice of my dreams/nightmares, until I began to experience them to a vivid and in-depth degree, discovering that many when pieced together correctly reflected feelings, ambitions and even predicted future circumstances in my life. They were often very powerful, and gradually helped me discover more about myself. So, ever since, I'd pay more attention to them, although I'm aware it's just my opinion that they could represent something and they may still have no meaning whatsoever. Last night's dream was visually strong, but simple when put into explanation. I'm not going to share that much of it, but one section in particular which is stuck in my mind.
I am not a religious person, but I'm open minded and accept a God may or may not exist either way. I don't as such act upon the idea, although recently through some concerns, I have been trying to pray. However, at the same time, I am becoming frustrated with it, concerned I am expressing the wrong words and may merely be wasting time (and a God's, should it definitely exist), and shouldn't.
In my dream, I wanted to clear my mind, and decided I'd visit a church for a change, and made my way to one in particular I'm familiar with from many years ago as a youngster. The church is quite big, and was definitely packed. A priest began to talk, though I couldn't make out any of his words. After some time, somebody who works at the church began to come around the aisles, selling a choice of three items to people. One was a sword, one was a chrome bicycle, but the other I cannot remember. Most people chose the sword, which was silver and chrome, and with that choice, a random sword out of a selection of three was given to them (Additionally, I believe their were a choice of three bicycles to match). I was looking around, observing everybody grasping their swords and waving them in the air, talking amongst eachother loudly, though still I couldn't make out their words. There was one sword in particular I liked, so as the lady came to me, I bought one of the swords, but unfortunately it wasn't the one I wanted. though It had some interesting difference with it, which was the four ruby stones hanging from the cross guard of the handle. Two either side. I wasn't entirely sure what was going on, but it was almost as if the church was preparing for some kind of war, amping everybody up in its preparation. I felt like a complete stranger, yet at the same time, I felt a strange connection with whatever was going on, though unaware exactly.
The dream continued in other strange ways which I won't get into, involving the military, a plane hijacking, mysterious and shadowy figures murdering people, and dinosaurs (Yes, dinosaurs).
So, perhaps it means absolutely nothing, but I'm interested to see any input from those of you who believe these dreams can represent things.
If it makes any difference, the night before I had one of the worst nightmares of my life, which was full of rage, homicide and other problems. I became the criminal, displaying such chaos that I woke up feeling distraught. My mind has been feeling very low lately, yet in other ways a whole lot stronger. This is why I've been praying, and thus why I'm curious about this dream, as it involves the church.
Not all dreams have a meaning necessarily; but yes, I believe that dreams are often used to communicate spiritual truths to us when we are in a more receptive state. Our waking minds are so busy and preoccupied.
It sounds as though your dream conveys a sense of urgency, preparation for battle (spiritual, not conventional).
2 Cor 10:4 -- (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;)
And you must choose which side you're on.
Perhaps the various swords/bicycles represent ministries/gifts.
It is a very complex dream, and you should seek God's interpretation.
Gen 40:8 -- ...Do not interpretations belong to God? tell me them, I pray you.
Jer 33:3 -- Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.
If you've never prayed before, or feel as though you're using the wrong words, He hears and understands what's in your heart.
1 Chron 28:9 -- ...for the LORD searcheth all hearts, and understandeth all the imaginations of the thoughts: if thou seek him, he will be found of thee...
The simplest, sincere prayers (even those of a child) will be heard and answered.
Don't take my word for it though. Call out to God in your own way and your own words. Even if it's just, "Jesus, if you're really God..."
I find that having a Bible in hand when I pray and just breaking it open like a loaf of bread -- asking for some spiritual meat for my soul -- is very helpful. He never fails to give me just what I need for whatever circumstance I'm facing at that time.
Become familiar enough with that Bible, and it will literally speak the Word into your thoughts -- providing comfort, guidance, answers! for whatever you're facing.
The Word is not just ink on paper.
In Jn 6:63, Jesus said, "...the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life."
They are living. And they are life-giving.
It is the Living Word of the Living God.
Jn 1:1 -- In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. ... 14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.
Jesus is "the Word made flesh".
That's why He said what He did to the Jews:
Jn 6:50 -- This is the bread which cometh down from heaven, that a man may eat thereof, and not die. 51 I am the living bread which came down from heaven: if any man eat of this bread, he shall live for ever: and the bread that I will give is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world. 52 The Jews therefore strove among themselves, saying, How can this man give us his flesh to eat?
Get in the Word. Eat it up!
In my dream, it was the sky was red-orange, i was in the front yard of my house and then i turned around to see two shields, both made of metal and red and metallic grey in color, as well as a long sword with a red hilt and red scabbard, when i grabbed the scabbard and pulled the sword out it was like the blade was polished and beutifully gleaming in the last rays of sunlight. I somehow knew they were meant for me and I placed the sword over my shoulder and proceeded to grab the shields as well. Once i put them on, each one my fore arm, i noticed there was a smaller black sword and placed it around my waist.
A small note-i have been reading the Bible daily and attending Church, and gotten rid (or attempting to, but ask God for help)
But if i coild get a dream explination that be great.
And only serious answers please.
This is the last dream I had in the series dream of indigo flowers, pigs, barbeques and enchanted forest. All those dreams happened one day after another. This is the last dream, and then it had been a while since I dream again.
I am in a stranger place, the place looks old. It is still a part of Philippines. I am in a park-type of place, there was this stage show going on, I am a part of it… honestly I am the main attraction. It’s like a comedy gag show, comedy and musical and sexy… like burlesque settings.
I have this role that they have given me; it is the role of an attractive temptress. The actor who will be the “prey” is a true to life playboy. He is not happy when I am seducing him because he is afraid of developing feelings for me. He is very unattractive for me, that’s why I’m wondering why does he managed to become a playboy. I was thinking he deserves to be played upon because he needs to have his punishment.
Then the show starts playing…
I have a whip; he is sitting on the sofa. Audiences laughed when I whipped at his side, the end of the whip almost touched him, he was scared on what I did. Then I sat on his lap facing him, then I rest my head in his chest then I heard his heartbeat… it was fast. I lingered for a moment then I finally raised my head and then he kissed me. I don’t have a choice but to play along because the audiences were watching, anyway it is just a stage kiss for me, although not for him.
The show ended and I went to the dressing room to change clothes because I am going to the park, the man was there but from being unattractive he become a very handsome man. He said he has feelings for me, and then he also told me that I had changed him. I want to date him but I don’t trust him, so I went away.
I was walking in the park when I felt the haunting love; I am currently staring at the barbeque stores. Then suddenly in my right arm I am holding a wooden sword.
My aunt showed up and I practiced the sword with her, then she had to leave for some reasons.
Then there was this girl, a girl from my high school, this girl is one of my bullies. She is claiming that she is my daughter and she hated my aunt. I hide my distaste of her, because i don’t want to hurt her feelings and she is my daughter in the dream. I am also protecting my aunt that’s why I didn’t make comments every time she says something bad about her, I felt like I am being untrue to myself. I also felt like I am lying to everyone else.
The wooden sword turned into a plastic sword. I practiced the plastic sword with the girl… then she went in front of the fountain and she told me she wants to take a photo of me using my sword to throw her into the fountain. I did so but I did not see any camera.
I saw the barbeque stalls again, then suddenly a fat evil swordsman came.
He wants to fight with me, the bully girl disappeared and I am on my own… I felt better.
My plastic sword turned into a real sword, but it had become a samurai, not medieval swords.
I fought the swordsman but I have not been using my samurai craftfully, then I remember I know how to use an harnis, it is a sword-like combat sports in the Philippines only that the sword is made out of wood… I can use the skill in harnis to maneuver my samurai well.
I was able to slash the evil swordman’s arm, belly and cheek. It doesn’t look to gory, the blood was there but it doesn’t look too scary like in the movies. I felt a little tired but I was able to pull it through.
I have defeated the evil fat swordsman, and my samurai is beautiful.
My aunt came to congratulate me; the bully girl is out of my sight.
I had seen the barbeque stalls again, and then I felt the haunting love again.
Then I woke up.
Spongebob Squarepants Underwear?
I dreamed of a woman in a red embroided cloak but I couldn't see her face because she was wearing a hood, & I knelt before her & she knighted me with a sword...although her face wasn't visible to me I strongly felt that this woman was the Virgin Mary..

Example: What does this dream mean?
It began with school kids (I'm 13) who I didn't know, stabbing themselves with these strange knives, and then coming back to life. They then forced everyone else all around the world to do it. My friend kept saying do it to me, and my uncle physically tried to force me. My friend was really relaxed about it though. I never got it done. What does this mean? It's so strange!
A few nights ago I had this dream where I was fighting with a magic sword. It have a golden handle and sliver double edge blade. It looked Greek. He spoke to me telling me his name. He was warning me about the Norse god of Mischief Loki. Telling me to be careful of him. I held the sword in my hands. So what you think the dreams mean? in the dream the sword (which named himself nightrage) show me a hologram of the enemy and told me to be careful. The sword was very sharped like a razor that can cut though a whole limb off bone and all. So got any ideas what these dreams mean?
