Dream Concept 380: More Real Than Reality

There are certain types of dreams that fill the dreamer with a sense of sacred fear and wonder. These transcendental dreams were called “numinous dreams” by psychoanalyst Otto. They are closely related to vision dreams in which the person feels like it is closer to being an experience than a dream.

These vision dreams often occur after the death of a loved one. The person feels that the deceased communicates, often telepathically, a message that is meant to reassure the dreamer. Often in these vision dreams, the dreamer feels they can see, hear, smell and feel the deceased. This often takes place in the context of the dreamer feeling like they actually physically hugged the loved one who has passed.

Some of these numinous dreams involve angels and images of Jesus. I know a dreamer who regularly feels she visited heaven. Communication with spirits and guides who transmit messages about the dreamer’s life destiny is not uncommon.

The memorable thing about these dreams is the striking iconic imagery which can involve symbols which the dreamer can not dismiss. For instance, one such dream could involve the dreamer being shown his tombstone by a glorious angel. On his tombstone might be the moving image of the dreamer defeating Satan in battle by helping the poor and downtrodden.

The lighting and tone of these dreams often convey a spiritual white light that defines the sacredness of the moment. The dream memory becomes emblazoned in the dreamer’s mind as setting the destiny of what she is meant to accomplish in life.

You will hear persons talk about doing “spiritual warfare” in their dreams in which they respond to demons with the Word of God. These dreams often strike deep fear into the dreamer. They frequently view their lives as a spiritual struggle they are fated to endure.

It is often a realization of the will of God which can be sacred fear. It is a destiny from which they feel there is no escape. Wherever you go, there you are.

What do ghosts mean in a dream?

Ghost on Stairway

Dream Question 360:

At the first level of dream interpretation, each ghost could be parts of our mind/psyche/personality. Ghosts are dead people. They are an unseen presence or influence.

It could be a part that is not the same that it once was, i.e., that part of the person is now a “ghost of its (former) Self.” It’s just not the way it used to be. It is not the same as it once was.

That part of the person just is not happening anymore–the spirit may be strong but the necessities to pull it off, the real flesh, are no longer there.

It could represent the person being too ethereal and high spirited focusing on the higher Self. They may not be paying enough attention to day-to-day grounded concerns.

With gifted psychic people it may sometimes represent an eerie spiritual feeling you have inside about another person. In a dream, the question would be why was that certain person picked.

It could involve feeling ignored, that people do not see the real you and act as if you are not there.

It could represent feeling ineffective related to being a ghost of your former self.

It could relate to how a part of you has been influenced by the Spirit of another.

These all have the motif of being historical or past parts of yourself whose spirit lives on. In this sense, it would represent an elemental essence of yourself or another person.

All this is not to say that they do not exist. I believe we are affected by spirits according to what the vibration of our inner selves brings into our agenda.

So I do not see them so much as shadow parts of the self as much as I see them as strong historical parts of the self that endure and continue to influence our lives. They are changed, but the spirit is still powerful.

With intuitive persons, it may represent a secret intuitive self that quickly gathers the spirit of a person or situation.

It sometimes indicates a legend.  For example, during the Civil War one of the great marauders of the south who captured Union generals behind the enemy lines, was known as the Gray Ghost. He could come out of thin air, anytime, anywhere.

Or it could mean someone is lost in the sense of ghosts being lost and unable to find their way. They end up roaming aimlessly on earth. At the first level, it could represent the journey of the Lost Soul trying to find the light.

It can also convey the spirit of an epoch such as the “Ghost of Christmas Past.” Or it could show a stain that a person had to live with such as, “he had to live with the ghost of his father’s failure.”

Another possibility might be that a person could imagine themselves doing something as a ghost if they thought something had a low probability of happening in the sense of “he doesn’t have a ghost of a chance of winning.”

There are more meanings of ghosts than with most symbols in dreams I think because it implies spirituality.

Dream 271: The Orbs Predict Jobs

Dream 271: Orbs and Ghosts

A twenty-something woman had the following dream: “The other day I had a dream about ghosts in my room, it opened my bedroom door and opened all my dresser drawers and started throwing out all its contents. Then awhile later in my dream, I was in a cabin like house with my mom and I saw 3 orbs, like silver lights, dancing all around the room. I kept saying “mom look! Mom look!” I didn’t know if she could see them. Then suddenly they were coming at me, and as soon as they were up to my face they turned into bubbles that were thick enough to touch without popping. The other integer thing I remember is having an abundance of jobs coming up in my near future. Just thought it was a pretty cool dream to have.”

Interpretation: Clothes usually represent your defenses. The ghost literally represents your spirit. By throwing the clothes on the floor your spirit is urging you to be less defensive. Orbs and circles are usually representatives of the soul and I would have no problem with seeing them as guides.

Houses or cabins can represent the dreamer because they are frameworks out of which you live. The number three is significant because it is the number of change. Three people in a relationship tends to be unstable, and things are going to change. So the dream is predicting personal change.

It is interesting that I think this dream is partly symbolic and partly predictive. Bubbles are made of water and water is emotion almost always. That they do not burst is a good sign because I think the dream is predicting job opportunities for you in the sense that ” your bubble will not be burst.” The ghosts are probably more defensive spirits or attitudes from the past that need to be thrown out. The orbs are likely to be new possibilities she is facing. The orbs are a good omen.
