Requests for dream interpretations

Explaining my current position on dream interpretation requests.

I am frequently contacted through this website and social media, and asked for help with dream interpretations. Given that I write about dreams, this is hardly surprising.

This post is to clarify my aims for this blog, and explain my current position on dream interpretation requests.

I approach dream interpretation from a biblical perspective. My belief is that our dreams can come from God, and understanding them is best understood within the context of an ongoing relationship with Him.

If you have just come across this post and are new to dream interpretation, it is worth mentioning that dreams are symbolic in nature. You might find it helpful to read the following articles: Understand your dreams: A bible-based introduction to dream language and Beginner’s guide to biblical dream interpretation .

My position on interpreting dreams

My main aims in writing this blog are:

  • To provide solid biblical foundations for interpreting dreams.
  • To encourage people on their dream journey.
  • To change mindsets in the church surrounding dreams.

It is not currently my aim to engage in dream interpretations or provide training, except through writing blog posts.

I hope that, through my writing, I can encourage others by sharing experiences and insights I have learned from my own dream journey over the past 15 years. I hope these things can be a springboard, so that others can feel confident in making their own journey.

But as a result of my writing, I am frequently contacted by readers about specific dreams. I do enjoy hearing from people but cannot always promise to reply, or to know the answers!

I cannot always promise to reply, or to know the answers!

Therefore, I have written the following points to clarify my position.

1) I do not offer a dream interpretation service

I do not offer an official dream interpretation service, nor am I always able to respond to messages / emails.

I do not have a team of interpreters like some people do. I am simply a follower of Jesus Christ, who combines a lifelong knowledge of the bible with 15 years’ experience of relating to God though my own dreams.

However, I am widely read on the biblical model of dream interpretation, and have a certificate in biblical studies. Plus, I have undertaken training courses from some other well-known Christian dream ministries.

I am simply a follower of Jesus Christ, who combines a lifelong love and knowledge of the bible with many years’ experience of relating to God though my own dreams.

Interpreting dreams is a time-consuming activity! In order to give a sensible reply regarding a dream, it requires some serious thought and prayer – and even then, an interpretation is not guaranteed. I do not have the time nor resources to devote to this activity on a regular basis.

Therefore, I do not promise to reply to requests for interpretations, nor do I claim to know the answers!

2) I am happy to help when I can

Having said the above, I do love hearing from people and talking about dreams! I have many years personal experience, and enjoy suggesting potential dream meanings and seeing whether they makes sense to the dreamer.

So, time permitting, I will endeavour to reply to messages if I can. Even if I don’t have time to fully consider the dream, I may be able to give you some helpful ideas to think about.

If I do have time to consider a dream request, I always pray about the dream and ask for God’s insight. Any advice I give is birthed out of that prayer time, but is ultimately still based on my own experience and is simply an opinion.

Hopefully my ideas will be helpful – and even if it’s not the final interpretation, the suggestions I provide might spur you on to find the true meaning.

3) I take a teacher’s approach to dreams

Many Christian dream interpretation services take a prophetic approach, and aim to come up with a concise, God-inspired interpretation of the dream. That is a great aim, and I certainly aim to be led by God in my interpretations. Any insight from God’s Holy Spirit can greatly reduce the time it takes to understand a dream.

However, my spiritual gifting is more of a teacher than a prophet, and any response you receive from me will reflect that! My heart is always to equip and empower others – and not do all the work for them! 

My spiritual gifting is more of a teacher than a prophet.

Dreams are like parables, or illustrations, and I have found that once someone understands the potential symbolism, they can pray and engage with it further themselves.

Therefore, if I reply, you will most probably receive explanations of what the dream elements might mean, and how I came up with any suggested interpretation. This is to help you ‘get inside’ the picture yourself, and further engage with the dream message.

I believe that you are the best person to interpret your own dreams.

I believe that you, the dreamer, are the best person to interpret your own dreams – although there are times when help from others is invaluable. I have written about that in more depth in previous articles.

So, what sort of reply might you get if you contact me about a dream – and if I have the time to respond?

If someone asks me for help with a dream, I never assume that I have the right answer, even if I am fairly confident of the meaning.  I try to keep humble, because I know I can never truly know what that person is going though.

When I have the time to consider a dream and respond, this is what usually happens:

  • Someone sends me a dream for consideration.
  • I spend some time praying and thinking about the dream.
  • I communicate what I think the dream means (if I have a good idea). I also explain some of the key symbols/language, so the dreamer can enter into the illustration and start to engage with it themselves.
  • The dreamer considers my feedback, and then hopefully has more understanding of what the dream might be about. Often, they suddenly realise what the dream means – which may or may not be exactly what they or I first thought!
  • They give me some feedback.
  • I might then give some final input or response.

After that, if there is a sense of having found the God-intended meaning, both of us can celebrate together about what God has done. It is a joint achievement. If not, the dreamer can continue to think and pray about it further if they like.

This is different to the prophetic approach, which focuses on giving the dreamer a finished interpretation.  I can’t usually do that – at least not straight away anyway. But I can share from my experience – and help other people to start engaging with their dreams themselves.

4) I do not currently charge for help with dreams

At the time of writing this article, I do not charge for help with dreams.

I love writing about dreams, and my main reward is knowing I am providing biblical foundations for dream interpretation – and that others are encouraged in their journey. I believe that the interpretation of a dream comes from God.

I would like to keep this service free to help as many people as possible.

However, it does take financial resources to fund this blog and reply to messages, in terms of hosting this website and for my time. Therefore, I have a pay-it-forward option available.

If I have replied to an email or responded to a blog comment, and you feel blessed by it, there is a pay-it-forward page, where you can make a donation if you wish, as a thank you. By making a donation, you would help me to continue this work and provide other people with free help with dreams.

Paying-it-forward will help me to continue this work and to help more people with dreams in the future.

Further resources

There are various other bible-based ministries who offer dream interpretation services, so you might want to check them out. Here are a few that I know of:

  • Joshua Media Ministries is headed up by David E. Taylor. You can submit a dream to their website for interpretation. Click on the DREAM INTERPRETATION tab at the top of the website and a pop-up box will appear to submit your dream.
  • Michael B French, author of Dream Stories, has a website, where you can submit dreams to be interpreted by students.
  • Streams training centre, UK offer some dream interpretation (depending on capacity).

My favourite dream resources…

Let me know by leaving a comment below – if you know of other places that offer bible-based dream interpretations.

Dream details to record

If you decide to share a dream for interpretation, whether to me or to another ministry, it is important to include enough details to make a reasonable interpretation attempt possible.

It is not very helpful to consider symbols out of the context – but rather, the whole dream is needed. Other details such as the date, background colour and atmosphere are very important too.

I have written more about what details to write down when recording a dream, and why. You can find it in the following article:

You may want to use this template when you start out, which includes prompts for essential information to write down at the time of dreaming. Please note, I cannot guarantee I will reply to your message, even if you use this format.

It is available free, as a thank you, if you subscribe to emails:

Beginner’s Guide digital checklist

I would rather see you learn to interpret your own dreams rather than relying on dream interpretation services.

So, with that in mind, I have created this Beginner’s Guide digital checklist, which can be purchased from my shop if you need some help getting started – and it will gve you a solid biblical foundation. Any response from me will make more sense if you have worked through it.

I have also written a blog post for beginners which gives a brief overview.

My main aim through writing this blog is to provide a solid biblical foundation for interpreting dreams, and to change mindsets in the church. I am primarily a writer and bible teacher – who loves dreams. But I also hope you will be inspired to learn to interpret your own dreams – and become less dependent on dream interpretation services.

However, I do enjoy talking about dreams and communicating with those on a similar journey; so, when I can, I am happy to share ideas from my experience, and suggest avenues for you to pursue – and will try to respond to messages and requests if I have the time to do so.

So let’s keep encouraging one another, supporting one another on this dream journey, and pressing on to know God better.

  1. Hi,
    I came across your page because I was searching for clues about two dreams that I had about a week apart from one another. Both dreams contain people I know wearing white in a lifeless state.

    In the first dream someone attacked my friend in my house she was lying on the floor and looked dead she was wearing all white. Fruit was all over the floor and my friend’s attacker was stealing the fruit from the floor which I knew belonged to my friend. Later in the dream I found out that my friend was not dead but Alive when I seen her she was wearing something different (brown). The feel of this dream was worry and sorrow but at the end was relief and joy.

    The second dream, I saw my mom dead in a casket wearing all white but she had on royal blue soft velvet shoes. I noticed this because one of her feet was noticeably smaller than the other ( not true in life). The feel of the dream was sorrow. In the same dream I saw my dad driving and crying while I was in the back seat of the car. (In my waking life both of my parents are living and married to each other my mom is healthy).


  2. I am currently seeking more of Christ. I had a dream where I was drinking fuel in a gas station. The fuel tanks were empty for cars. And people had to wait until fuel is available. But I was able to access fuel to drink (I don’t know how).


    1. Thanks for commenting! Sounds like receiving from the Holy Spirit to me, and accessing heavenly help during a place of spiritual dryness! Keep seeking Christ, it’s obviously making a difference. Blessings.


  3. I dreamed me and my family was in a 2 story home and we was upstairs and this blue clear water kept rising overtaking homes but never damaged them. Our home had windows upstairs that was built for water rising. I could see the water and I could hear it but it never entered the home. I can hear myself telling my family not to worry because our home was built for this. That it had special features that if anything happened we would be okay. I was also telling them to pray and stay focused.


  4. I had a dream that part of my job was to go to another planet and meet with the King and Queen of this planet. I had to watch their baby for a short period of time, after I watched the baby, the King and Queen came back to give me a review to how I did, how organized I was and how clean I was, after reviewing they have me some suggestions on how to clean the baby and also made an appointment to get my hair done by the Queen. The King and Queen look like us and ate what we are on earth,but the baby was around 40 pounds and they stood about 9 feet tall, they did like me and things took a little longer than normal because my papers was not in order but I eventually found my paperwork that they had to sign.


  5. I dreamt of a cake which had purple flowers on it. And I said ” Oh a wedding cake” .And I saw the girl who was putting those flowers on the cake roughly, felt she might just spoil the cake.
    In my dream I was watching this with an old friend of mine, a teen crush ( Currently I’m in a relationship with another) .
