Christian Dream Symbols and Meaning

Many of us have dreams and visions and we are sometimes looking for the meaning to them.  The key when interpreting dreams and vision is to pay attention to your emotions, your senses – how you feel, what you smell and also the colors that are represented in your dreams.

God uses our dreams and visions as a way communicating with us giving us warnings and revealing our destinies and purpose.

Here’s a simple process to interpreting your own dreams:

1. Pray and ask God for the Interpretation 2. Search for the symbols in the bible and see how they were used. 3.Wait on the Lord.

With that said, we have created a dream dictionary where you can type in your dream symbol and search for it in our database.  Of course, this only has some and not all symbols.  The database has currently around 1500 symbols. Our goal is to continue to maintain and add to it each month.

Whatever you can’t find here you need to pray about it.  God will give you clarification.

  2. Hi, My name is Solomon. I often have this dream seeing myself in senior high school, writing my final exams. But in each dream, I know nothing to write.
    I also dream of defecating openly in the sight of people, feeling so ashamed…
    All these dream trouble me.
    Please I need help and prayers! Thanks and God bless!

    1. Greetings Solomon,
      I believe your dream speaks to the condition of your heart, and it is directional. Having a repeated dream indicates that the Lord wants to show/teach you something, but you have not realized it yet. Attempting to complete your final exam and not do so confirms this. High School dreams may signify that you are enrolled in the School of the Holy Spirit (H.S.). (The Holy Spirit often uses wordplay in dreams). Defecating openly in public indicated that clean-up is required. Be encouraged. This is a dream of the condition of your heart. The Lord is purifying/sanctifying you. He wants more of you. Pay close attention to Him to realize what He is doing in your life. I pray this helps you. Blessings.

  4. Hi, I have had two dreams in both different days of the color purple. In the first dream I was giving a purple bra to my step sister and in the second dream, someone gave a budded flower to someone, which then opened up to a purple flower. What does this means? Thanks for your support.

    1. Greetings Judith.
      The flowers, bra, and the color purple in this instance are all symbolic of righteousness. As well, flowers in bloom are symbolic of awakening love. I believe your dream is about you. It shows the integrity/condition of your heart towards others (your step-sister and those you have come in contact with.) The love of God blooms/multiplies as demonstrated to others. Your dream is one of self-condition—where you stand with God. A very encouraging dream. I pray this helps. Blessings.

  6. Hi my name is Rosemary and I’ve been praying for the world and my families protection. I had a sleep paralysis dream yesterday and I saw in the wall the devils shadow so I started to pray and rebuked him strongly as I prayed a bigger shadow appeared above the devil and as I prayed the bigger shadow would hit the devils until he disappeared completely, after this I saw a cow it was a healthy cow and it was eating straw grass and then I woke up.

      1. I always dreamed of having a new born child. Wearing a choth as a diaper and the diaper will always be full needed to be changed and I would feel embarrassed in the dream and hurt. I haven’t had this dream in a while but today I did. What could be it’s meaning?

      2. I had a dream God told me to cut out dairy and meat from my diet and after that I became more spiritually aware. That was after I also dreamed of a cow eating grass.
