There are numerous ways one can receive a message from an angel: visions, numerology, feathers, bells, technological malfunctions…the list is endless. One of the most common and perhaps most beneficial of these is undoubtedly dream messages. In this article we will explore the basics of message dreams including the different forms of dreams, what to look out for and how to interpret this angel dream meaning. We’ll start off by briefly talking about angel communication and why you may be visited by an angel in dream as opposed to through numerology or other signs.
Dreams, Messages and Signals
Receiving a message from an angel isn’t always easy. One important thing you have to remember is that angels may not choose the simplest method. I’m sure if the higher powers desired, they could set up a text message angel service whereby you send a text to a specific number and get a response in the same format. The goal of angel communication isn’t always communication but rather spiritual or personal growth. There are times when you ask a question or search for guidance despite the answer being within you all along. Sometimes angels have to challenge you in order to encourage this growth to take place.
The Different Types of Dream Messages
There are a variety of types of dream messages from emotions, to symbolism, all the way through to direct conversations or spoken messages. We’ll briefly cover some of the more common types of messages you may receive within a dream as well as looking at some interpretations of the dream itself. One vital point to remember when it comes to dream messages from angels is that your interpretation of the dream means everything. If you asked 10 people to interpret the same dream, it’s quite likely you would get 10 unique answers. When an angel sends you a message they are sending you it with the knowledge that you’ll know how to interpret it. So you have to trust your gut!
Your Guardian Angel
One of the most common angel dreams is that of your Guardian Angel. You may think that being visited by your Guardian Angel is one of the simpler dream messages to both notice and interpret but that couldn’t be further from the truth. Your Guardian Angel can appear in any number of forms: as an angel with wings, as a normal looking human, as an animal, as a light, as a feeling, as a sound or even as a symbol. It’s up to you and only you to realize that you’ve been visited by your Guardian Angel within the dream and it’s moments like this where you have to trust your gut.
In any dream you have you’re bound to come across symbols in some form of another. The more attention you begin to pay to your dreams, the more accurately you’ll be able to separate random nonsense from dream messages. If you’re lucky, you’ll see the same symbol repeat itself in varying manners which will give you a clue to its significance. Alternatively, you may have to do a little research. If you see a strange symbol in your dream and are drawn to it even slightly, sketch it when you wake up and try to determine where else this symbol exists.
Dreams can feel incredibly emotional and these intense emotions can even follow us into consciousness. I’m sure we’ve all woken up scared or in love as the result of a dream. The trick isn’t to look for emotions as such but rather what you’re feeling emotional about. If you find yourself feeling deep sadness over a hat then maybe try to determine who the hat belongs to in the real world. Similarly, if you feel extreme joy over something rather arbitrary, follow it up and try to find the significance. There are times when a dream is just a dream but by taking notes and investigating the meaning, you never miss out on any dream messages.
It is possible that you’ll be one of the lucky ones who receive a completely vivid dream with no interpretation needed and no fuzzy dream messages. Sometimes these dreams are even lucid so the communication is with you rather than some sub-conscious version. There isn’t much that needs to be said about this dream type as they are literally as straight-forward as they can be. They are essentially visions but while you sleep. The only problem you may encounter is if you aren’t lucid as it means you won’t be able to question or respond in the same manner as you perhaps would while conscious.
Reasons for Dream Messages
Of course one important aspect to consider is the nature of the message. There are many reasons why an angel may appear in your dream so in order to determine why they are there, here are some of the reasons.
One of the popular motives behind messages within dreams is prophecy. Your angels may see a fork in the road ahead and in an effort to avoid any negativity, may try and warn you. If you’ve received a message such as this, you’ll know it. Angels don’t risk misinterpretation when sending warnings and so your dream will be pretty clear. For example, if you dream about a health related issue then perhaps get a check-up or take a look at your diet and fitness. Of course prophecy can be positive as well but those are less clear.
Healing is another popular reason for a visit. Angels can guide your unconscious/subconscious minds through a healing process so that you awake with positive energy and feelings. Other times angels may guide you towards healing by leaving you a message, suggesting you should seek healing out. These are just some of the reasons as to why you may be contacted within a dream but as we mentioned before, your own interpretation of the dream is more important than anything.
