Two new dreams: A crowded mall, green grapes, an almond tree? Please help interpret these dreams

Post by JoJo on Thu Apr 14, 2011 11:34 am

Hi friends.

I had two strange dreams yesterday. I am not a regular dreamer so I know these dreams are significant.

I was in a crowded mall with my church brethren. The front entrance of the mall was in view. To our right was a corridor heading toward a large department store. To our left was a corridor heading toward Walmart. Ahead of us led to the food court and the rest of the mall. Not all my brethren were present. We stood in an area close to where the mall's escalators should be. I recognized the mall. There was only one thing different. It did not have escalators in the place where they should be.

My father was standing close to me, my mother was in the area, my neice and other church brethren. We were all wearing coats. We were dressed in church attire. Ladies wore hats, which is customary.

I noticed something strange. I was not on the same level as everyone else. In the mall floor, where I was standing, there was a hole in the form of a square and I was on the second stair of a small staircase located beneath the floor. The majority of my body was above ground except from just below my calves down!
The crazy thing is, no one seemed to be concerned that I was not on the same level as everyone else. Everyone acted as if it was normal.

My neice was standing in front of me. She was wearing a pretty red trench coat. I think there was piping on it but I do not remember if it was white or some other light colour. However, I do recall that she had on white socks and black Mary-Jane styled shoes.

I said to her, "I like your coat." I then picked her up and started playing with her.

Coming from my left, I noticed a man and his daughter walking toward our group.
He wore glasses, had sandy brown hair, wore a bluish/greyish/purplish jacket. He was holding his daughter's hand. His daughter wore a coat but I do not remember the colour. She looked about 4 years old.

The man and his daughter came to our group. He did not tell us to move but he and his daughter waited for us to move out of the way so that he and his daughter could pass.

I then gave my neice to my father to hold. I then walked up the stairs I was standing on so that I was now stood on the mall floor like everyone else. I and the group moved so that the man and his daughter can pass.

Once we moved, I looked around. I noticed that there was more than enough room on the other side of us. The man and his daughter could have went around us. I then said, " This man is rude. He could have went around. He made us move on purpose."

Our entire group began to move toward the corridor where Walmart was located. I recognized more people in our group. Some people that I recognized did not attend our specific church branch but were a part of our church organization. One was a former member of our assembly.

At this point, I saw my brother, my sister in law, pushing my neice in a stroller. The whole group was walking slowly. Everyone was talking amongst themselves, enjoying each others company. One church sister from our assembly asked, " How is Bro. Nigel?" She then turned to me and said, "Remember when we last saw Bro. Nigel. He had his face in his hands pacing, saying, "I don't this is going to work out. I don't think this is going to work out." Immediately, my mind saw Bro. Nigel, with his face in his hands, saying, " I don't think this is going to work out." I also saw a stand-up piano. Bro. Nigel and his wife had been having problems.
Here is the strange thing. I do not know anyone by this name. His face was not one that I recognized at all! A woman that no longer attends our assemby responded to our church sister's question. She said, "Bro. Nigel is alright." Afterward, I saw another church sister from one our organization's other assemblies. Someone then asked, "How is Sis. Spence?" My mother then responded by saying," Well, I spoke to Sis. Spence a few weeks ago. Bro. Spence is not good(he is not well)."
Here is another strange thing. I do not know who Sis. Spence is, and the one that I am aware of who lives approximately 5 hrs away is not married!

Our group continued to walk down the corridor where the Walmart was located. At this time I see my brother, his wife and daughter, who is being pushed in a stroller. I then proceed to put something in my mouth. I did not look at it but I knew that it was a green grape just by how it tasted. The thing is, this grape tasted rotten. I then cringed at the taste of the grape. I did not spit it out. There would be no place to put it. I then proceeded to eat a second grape. This time, I looked at it. It indeed was green. It was firm, looked good, no blemishes, except for a slight brown ring around where the stem would be. I bit this grape. It tasted good but the taste was diminished a bit because I still had the taste of the first grape in my mouth. At this point, my brother says to me, "The P------- are coming." I know the family he mentioned. The man I care about is from that family (please read my first dream post 'My friends have had strange dreams about me!' for more background). I woke up from my dream right after.


Second mini dream:

While having Bible Study yesterday evening with my brethren, I nodded off by accident for only a few moments. While my eyes were closed, I saw an almond tree! The leaves were green. the tree was healthy. I have never seen an almond tree before but I recognized it because of the almond shell.


I know that these dreams mean something. They may be connected. They may not.
I do believe that there are some elements of the first dream that I shared today that are connected to some or all of the dreams in my first post. I have some thoughts but I am in no wise an interpreter. I would love some help in interpreting these dreams.

hello! i wanted to share a verse with you that i just came across this morning. it reminded me of your second dream.

it's Jeremiah 1:11-12 (Amplified Version).
Moreover, the word of the Lord came to me saying, Jeremiah, what do you see? And I said, I see a branch or shoot of an almond tree [the emblem of alertness and activity, blossoming in late winter]. Then the Lord said to me, You have seen well, for I am alert and active, watching over My word to perform it.

My HCSB notes say in this verse that it is a symbol of God watching over His word to accomplish His purpose.

i'm not sure what any of this means to you but it sounds like a wonderful thing to me! i'm not an interpreter just sharing what made me think of your dream. please pray about it and i will also pray for you!

Oh Tabitha!

Thank you so much for your comments! I too believe that these dreams are good dreams. I did not feel scared or worried even though I did not know what the dreams meant!

I look forward to God's revelation of these dreams in time and I do appreciate your prayers as well.

God bless you!

I'm sorry I don't have a full interpretation but I would like to give you some advice and thoughts that will hopefully help.

I may have misunderstood, but did you mean that you were invisible from the calves down, or you were standing on a lower level flooring than everyone else?

Also, people in dreams are often symbolic including their names. Try looking up the names in your dreams of the people that you didnt know that were having issues. They may give you clues to help you understand who it is you felt led to pray for.(by the way i feel this part of the dream was given for you to pray for certain people who are having problems) Ask yourself who these people reminded you of. Are there similarities between them and people you know in real life that might be having these issues. Sometimes we have to hold on to dreams like this to save for later and just 'Ponder them in our Hearts'... The Lord will reveal it to you at the right time..just keep seeking Him about it for the full and true meaning.

About the sour grapes, I found this verse:
Jeremiah 31:28 "And it will be that as I have watched over them to pluck up and to break down, and to overthrow, destroy, and afflict [with evil], so will I watch over them to build and to plant [with good], says the Lord.

29In those days they shall say no more, The fathers have eaten sour grapes, and the children's teeth are set on edge.(D)

30But everyone shall die for his own iniquity [only]; every man who eats sour grapes--his [own] teeth shall be set on edge."

And the Almond tree...
Jeremiah 1:11 (Amplified Bible)

11Moreover, the word of the Lord came to me, saying, Jeremiah, what do you see? And I said, I see a branch or shoot of an almond tree [the emblem of alertness and activity, blossoming in late winter].

Hi Daph.

Thank you so much for your response.

Just to clarify, in my first dream, I was standing on what I believe are stairs, two steps lower than the ground floor that everyone else was standing on. Mind you, I could not see that it was stairs that I was standing on but that is what it felt like. My legs below my calves are not invisible, just not readily visible because I was standing two steps lower than everyone else.

Regarding the two people mentioned by name in my dream, I can only say that 'Bro. Nigel' reminded me of my brother. He was dark, bald-headed, with pronounced eyebrows, features that my brother has. He did not look like my brother though. I did not think Bro. Nigel referred to my brother initially because I saw my brother in the dream with his wife and daughter and he spoke to me. However, when I think about it, Bro. Nigel's distress was in relation to his marriage. My brother and his wife have been having problems lately.
Regarding the woman called, 'Sister Spence', I still have no idea who this woman could be. What I have done is look up the meanings of the names, Nigel and Spence. Nigel means 'champion' and Spence means 'provider'.

The symbols that still puzzle me are the following:

The setting: A crowded shopping mall that I recognize

The attire: We were all dressed for church wearing coats

Placement: Everyone was standing on the mall floor, I was standing
two steps lower than everyone else

Colour: Before I walked up the steps, I held my neice who was wearing
a red trench coat, white socks, black shoes ( I believe there is
significance to the colours of my neices outfit and where the
colours are placed on her body)
A man in a medium blue coat walked by holding his daughter's hand

Action: I walk up the steps, standing on the mall floor
Our whole group, including me, moves so that
the man and his daughter could pass by

Food: I eat a rotten grape that I did not look at before eating it
I eat a pretty, green/white, sweet firm grape after

Name calling: At the end of the dream, the family name of a family I
know very well is mentioned

Dream Number Two

Symbol that puzzles me: The luscious, healthy, green, full, almond tree
It was a beautiful tree

Daph, I know these dreams are good dreams. It is a little frustrating not knowing what they mean. All in all, God is a good God. I have been blessed by you and others who have given your thoughts on what God could possibly be saying to me through these dreams. I await God's revelation, whether he reveals his message to me, you or anyone else God has decided to provide the interpretation to. I am so excited!
