Dream symbols - jesus

JESUS IN DREAMS: Understanding dreams is not so difficult. In practice dream symbols translate into certain words within the English language. For instance a God dream may simply capture your feeling that "That was a terrible disaster. I was shocked by the damage" and so God may translate into the words "terrible disaster" as people use the term "act of God" in relation to terrible disasters.

KEY WORDS LINKED TO JESUS DREAMS?- "thinking deeply" (A reference to Jesus in a dream will often mean that you have been thinking very deeply as we think deeply when we think of God. A dream of God may be a symbol for any deep thinking about you, something that has just happened or the world in general)
- "disaster" (After a major disaster then we think of God so a dream of Jesus maybe your way of recognising the extent of some crisis)
- "overcoming difficulties" (We call on God when we need to overcome difficulties)
- "Reasons to be thankful" (When we try to look on the bright side and try to be thankful for what we have it shows that we are thinking in deep and profound ways)
- "Shock" (When we have been truly shocked we think in bigger ways - we will often think of some religious meaning if something terrible happens)
- "a need for faith" (When you have moments when you need to trust in yourself or where you have to find a last ounce of energy we think in bigger and often religious ways)
- "Crisis" (In any crisis we think deeply and profoundly. So a dream of God maybe your minds way of saying "this crisis has made me really think")
- "Love" (At moments when we feel extreme emotions we will think in bigger and sometimes religious ways. Dreams of God may link into profound thoughts of "love" or "goodness")
- "illness" (At moments of extreme illness we think about the world we live in and try to revaluation ourselves)

Now try to see how words in this list feature in your thoughts. Think of the things that you write down in a diary or tell a friend. Its likely that dreams translate into conscious thoughts that you are all too aware of - nowadays not many people believe in the unconscious mind. If any of the thoughts that you have seem to feature words on the list then its likely that the dream could link to that thought - it may even portray that exact thought process. So if you have been feeling that "Yesterday I became aware of the terrible decline in my health" then the dream of God is an excellent metaphor for the moment of real crisis as you realise that you are very ill.

Ignore the simplistic definitions given in some dream dictionaries. Ignore references such as "dreams of Jesus show that you need more faith." Indeed this kind of statement maybe true. But we cannot make hard and fast rules regarding dream interpretation. The appearance of Jesus in a dream does link to the "need for faith." However, think of all the many ways in which this kind of theme can appear in your thoughts. You might have been thinking yesterday "I need to show faith in my method. Results are bad but I am sure we will succeed." However, the same "need for faith" features in totally different thoughts such as "When we were young and poor we needed faith because times were so hard." A dream could link in with highly reflective thoughts like that. In fact a Jesus dream may link to any context in which "the need for faith appears." Equally a Jesus dream may have a slightly different symbolic meaning. This page features a list with all the different meanings. Read through this list and try to see which of these situations, emotions and scenarios are most relevant.
