I came across your site because I was looking to completely figure out my dream (of course). I know what many symbols are and kind of spliced my dream together to figure out what it is saying, and I am very clear on one part of the dream; however, the rest of the dream, while I know what it is saying, I am unsure if it is prophetic or showing me something that could potentially be avoided. How does one know?
I’ve read your archives Bible Study on Dreams (I had to find out if you were actually spiritual…or a “spiritualist”…hope you can forgive me…there is some strange stuff out there. Your articles bring such profound clarity…thank you for sharing!
Here’s a quick background: I am very soon preparing to launch a home for homeless teens in the Denver Metro area and then I had this dream which I am pretty sure relates to the organization. I don’t know if it is a warning not to proceed, or if it is prophetic concerning struggles which will take place, or if it has nothing to do with anything.
DEAR KATIE, I HAVE WRITTEN THE INTERPRETATION OF YOUR DREAM IN CAPS, BETWEEN PARAGRAPHS TO DISTINGUISH YOUR TEXT FROM MINE.
Here’s the dream: I was walking to a yard before a building.
THE YARD INDICATES “THE EXPECTED ENVIRONMENT” WHICH YOU ARE COMING UP TO. THE GIRLS YOU WILL BE TAKING IN WILL BE CARRYING A LOT OF BAGGAGE AND NEGATIVE INFLUENCE.
There were three steps which were half circular, off white on the outer portion of the step and a pink/red brick color on the inside of each step.
3=TRINITY OF SELF. BODY, SOUL (MIND) AND SPIRIT.
1/2 MOON SHAPED STEPS= A WARNING TO KEEP YOUR BODY, MIND AND SPIRIT GUARDED AND BALANCED. DON’T ALLOW EMOTIONS TO OVER-TAKE YOU.
WHITE, PINK AND RED = INDICATES YOUR MATURITY ON EACH LEVEL OF YOUR TRINITY. YOU ARE RIGHTEOUS BEFORE GOD, OFFER LOVING KINDNESS AND COMPASSION TO OTHERS, AND YOU HAVE THE ABILITY TO CONQUER, BE ASSERTIVE, SET BOUNDARIES AND DISCIPLINE WITH THE LOVE OF CHRIST.
Someone (I don’t know who) walked in front of me. We tried to keep our balance as we walked up the steps because they were narrow and an iron gate opened toward us and we didn’t want to fall off.
SYMBOLIC OF YOUR HOLY SPIRIT WITHIN YOU, GOES BEFORE YOU TO PREPARE THE WAY. THE CHRIST IN YOU HAS THE KEY TO UNLATCH THE GATE, HAVING DOMINION AND POWER TO WALK BOLDLY TOWARD YOUR MISSION, BINDING THOSE NEGATIVE ENTITIES THAT WOULD TRY TO INTERFERE.
IRON GATE OPENING TOWARD YOU, TRYING TO MAKE YOU FALL…INDICATES THAT THE ENEMY IS NOT HAPPY WITH YOU TRYING TO HELP HIS LOST SOULS. HE WILL TRY TO CAUSE SELF DOUBT AND SITUATIONS THAT WILL ATTEMPT TO MAKE YOU FALL. MAINTAIN BALANCE AND ALL WILL BE WELL.
I watched the person in front of me unlatch the gate and walk through. There were snakes all around.
SNAKES IN THIS DREAM SYMBOLIZE NEGATIVE ENTITIES WHICH TEND TO ATTACH THEMSELVES TO VICTIMS OF ABUSE, NEGLECT ETC. BE AWARE THAT THE GIRLS COMING TO STAY WITH YOU WILL NEED PRAYER AND PROTECTION. I’D ENCOURAGE YOU TO CLEAN HOUSE OFTEN BY PRAYING OFTEN AND BINDING UP THE ENEMY. IF YOU HAVE NOT DONE SO ALREADY, RESEARCH SPIRITUAL WARFARE AND PROTECTING YOUR HOME.
As I got to the third step, it sunk a little and triggered an automatic gate opener,
SUNK A LITTLE= IS THE SELF DOUBT ABOUT WHETHER OR NOT YOU SHOULD MOVE FORWARD WITH THIS MINISTRY. THE ANSWER IS “yes.”
…but for some reason, I still felt I needed to unlatch it when a bright red light flashed and I realized it was open. There was a snake at the latch…I wasn’t afraid, but I was completely grossed out.
WALK BOLDLY THROUGH THAT GATE WITHOUT FEAR. THE ENEMY WANTS TO CREATE DOUBT AND DOES NOT WANT YOU TO ENTER IN.
We walked down the path toward the building and the other person said the snakes were just bull snakes and they wouldn’t hurt us.
YOU ALREADY KNOW THAT GREATER IS HE WITHIN YOU THAN HE WHO ATTEMPTS TO BULLY US! SATAN IS A BULLY AND CANNOT HARM YOU UNLESS YOU WEAKEN TO HIS TRICKS.
She ran past them encouraging me to run also. I saw them all turn their heads watching her as she ran through and I thought she is ok, but now they know I am coming and it wont be as safe.
RUNNING PAST THEM SHOWS YOU ARE NOT AFRAID AND YOU WILL FOLLOW THROUGH AND WALK THE PATH OF YOUR CALLING, DESPITE THEIR INTIMIDATION.
The largest snake turned toward me and his head grew. HE IS THE LEADER OF THE PACK!
I noticed he had a severed body but was still alive. His body was folded and bound with two rubber bands, but I still felt a sense that it could harm me.
YOU WILL BE DEALING WITH DARKNESS ON DIFFERENT LEVELS. WE DO NOT HAVE THE POWER TO KILL DEMONS BUT WE CAN BIND THEM FROM DOING DAMAGE. BE AWARE OF HIS TRICKS, STAY ALERT. THIS IS NOT GOING TO BE A ONE TIME DEAL. HE WILL ATTEMPT TO STEAL, KILL AND DESTROY WHAT YOU ARE ABOUT TO DO. DON’T GIVE HIM THAT POWER. PRAY AND ANOINT THE HOME BEFORE THE GIRLS MOVE IN. KEEP YOURSELF PROTECTED THROUGH A PRAYER SUPPORT GROUP OF SOME KIND.
I turned and went a different way. The way I went had been visited by the snakes, but they were no longer there.
THIS PART IS PROPHECY! YOU WILL CONQUER!
Dead birds were all over the ground their bodies gone, but their wings were all fanned out and strewn all around the grounds.
EACH ONE OF THESE BIRDS REPRESENTS THE DAMAGED SOULS YOU WILL BE DEALING WITH. DEAD BIRDS ARE LOST SOULS. WINGS ARE SYMBOLIC OF THE ABILITY OR INABILITY TO RISE ABOVE A PROBLEM. IN THIS CASE YOUR GIRLS WILL HAVE WING DAMAGE AND WILL NEED TO LEARN PROBLEM SOLVING, AND SPIRITUAL EDUCATION.
One bird was eating the remains of a dead bird BIRDS OF PREY, SOMEONE WHO PREYS ON OTHERS.
and many fluffy birds were still alive happy as can be walking among the dead.
YOU WILL HAVE TEENS WHO ARE GRATEFUL FOR YOUR MINISTRY AND FOR RESCUING THEM. THESE TEENS WILL NEED TO BE MONITORED FOR SAFETY FROM THE BIRD OF PREY.
I felt a sense of ambiguity because I was happy some were alive, but eerie as something terrible had happened. I tiptoed through that yard into safety.
TREAD LIGHTLY WHEN DEALING WITH YOUR GIRLS/TEENS. EACH HAVE COME FROM A DIFFERENT ENVIRONMENT, SOME MORE SEVERE THAN OTHERS. TERRIBLE THINGS HAVE HAPPENED AND IT WILL TAKE TIME TO GET/GIVE THEM THE HELP THEY NEED. _________________________________________________
Kate, you are about to embark upon a great ministry which needs more people like you to help the lost, spiritual hungry and hurting. I pray for your organization and pray God will send the staff needed to maintain balance and sanity within your home.
This dream is very spiritual and prophetic of what is to come. It is sent to help you prepare for battle and to stay alert to the snares of the enemy.
I am so glad you contacted me and shared this with our blog readers. God bless you richly and with great strength. If you have any questions regarding this dream, don’t hesitate to write.
