Reoccuring themes in dreams are basically certain concepts, ideas, actions that keep on occuring over and over. It might reoccur in the same dream or it may reoccur in new dreams. So for instance a person might have a particular dream of running away from somebody. They find safety and then in the same dream they find themselves running again. Also reoccuring dreams could also occur again in new dreams For e.g a person might dream about getting stabbed by a sister, then they have another dream where they are getting stabbed from a friend, then they have another dream about getting stab again. So in otherwords the actions keeps on happening over and over again. Another example of a reoccuring dream is where you dream you keep on losing something. For e.g I had a dream and throughout the dream I kept on losing my bag. No matter where I was in the dream and what I was doing I would lose my bag, find it back, lose it again, find it back etc. It's like de-ja vu.

In soulish dreams there are a lot of instances where persons have reoccuring dreams. It usually means there is an unresolved issue going on within them and unless they deal with that situation it will keep on occuring over and over again in their dreams.

In my experince with reocurring dreams it has always been about showing me a state of mind I was in or a position I was in, in my life. I used to dream about missing airplanes. I was always rushing around trying to make my flight, but barely missing it. Each dream had me getting closer and closer to making the flight. I've had about 4 of those dreams over and over again. Just recently I had a dream where I made the flight and it landed safely.

The reocurring symbols have been the airplane and me barely missing the flight. The dreams were progressive ending good!!

Awesome. What else happened that you finally overcame around that time or shortly thereafter?

Mia...it was procrastination...I was undercover with it. In my dreams I was always doing something I wasn't supposed to be doing so I would miss the flight. My main reason was that I was fearful of tackling things because I thought I would fail (it comes from a critical parent). After studying about Grace and the Power that has been given to me as a child of God, I realized that fear was Satan's door into my life to keep me from being all that God created me to be. I studied BIG TIME on that and I'm still learning, but apparently God has shown me that I was healed enough to get my "hind parts" on the plane. Do you want to know how I was feeling in the dream? (hehehe) I was mesmerized and like a little child, talking a mile a minute on the airplane and excited while watching the plane land on the runway... :cute:

To God be the Glory...He loves us so much, even when we are TRIPPIN'!!!! duh

Hmm...I wonder what the Lord is trying to show me...

I was going to post a question today about a recurring dream I've started having so it's God that I've come across this topic...I don't know whether to post it here, in the Dream Symbols section, or in the Dream Interpretation section...will start here...maybe it can be a case study...:-)

I've started dreaming about competition and supportive older women.

My first time was about 4-6 weeks ago (this one I posted to the website) about an athletic competition (not Olympic style, just like at a picnic/social gathering where competitive games/races were set up for fun). The competition was preceded by a meeting with older women who were getting impatient with me - the meeting couldn't begin because I was talking with an old friend I hadn't seen in years...

Sunday night I had another dream similar to this but the people in the dream were different (work friends from the past whereas the first dream was social friends). In the next scene, I was walking outside a building (picture the exterior to be the Coliseum in Rome but turned into condos... :haha: ). I was visiting friends who lived in one of the condos (IRL, they are the parents of my son's classmate). They made potstickers for me and served me a plate full of them. One of them was ladling broth onto the potstickers and praying over them and me as she was doing it. I felt very loved and appreciated that she did that. While she did that the other was preparing a meat and vegetable soup and was putting more meat in it. It looked like a very robust soup.

Last night I had another dream about competition but this time three of my friends and I were on the same team but the competition was more mental/intellectual...I recall that we had to put together a presentation (and create something, I think it was a phone). I think it was either for work or for a class. As we completed each step, I contacted an older female friend who was in the next room for her advice. She appeared to be retired but experienced in whatever the competition was. I just remember that she used to work for the phone company...

I do believe that reoccuring dreams reoccur because there's a message/lesson/issue that hasn't been understood or resolved so the dream keeps coming back until the issue is addressed. I just don't understand what the competition might represent...

Thanks & Blessings,

Lurdys

Lurdys,

Maybe your dream is something like Daph's...........Daphanie has recurring dreams about being with a teacher or mentor and they are similiar in that respect but the content varies. The reason she dreams of these things is not a message that she isn't receiving... The teacher is symbolic for me and the dreams are always about a new thing that has to do with the group, not ever about a repetitive thing that she hasn't understood yet.

Interesting ...........

and the airplace dreams was about the same message and showed progress.

I am not sure. It is obvious to me that the reason he saw it the day before in a dream was that he was about to see it in real life.

Some dreams are just THAT simple. (That's emphasis :)

I think this might be about a regular part of your life. If we can figure out which part it will be cake from there.

What area of your life do you work hard at measuring up or maintaining equal footing?

i can only say that the number 4 pertains to those things which i don't have in my life.


i LACK the following:


1. A Job <<< but not just ANY job, i've had plenty of those, no, the RIGHT one.

2. A Social Life.

3. My Own House.

4. My Own Authority/Independence which WRAPS the first three together.

I think this is more literal than that Resolution. Let's take a look at the numbers in dreams:

Numbers stood for something that could be counted/quantified and they were the focus of the dream, never just a number.

For instance 11 stars, 1 moon, 1 sun were the focus, not just pointing to a number.

11 - brothers
1 - mother
1- father

7 cows and corn equaling 7 years were the focus.

3 branches and 3 baskets were the focus = 3 days.

There were five layers to Nebchanezzars dream of a statue.

Now, Resolution, tell us all the dreams that you have had that four objects in them that could be counted. Note: None of the symbolic dreams using numbers had numbers in them.

Hi precious dear ones,

Here we are learning again oh I so love to learn and share. happy dance

I have had some experiences like Daph's where I am with a teacher and we are often in different settings learning different things but in the same surroundings.

Then I have had a recurring dream where the Lord was trying to get my attention to intercede. For instance one night I would dream that my computer would have pop up messages like an instant message alerts and with each pop up alert there were world events happening at that time and it was written in the message box on the pop up alert. Every time I would hear the alert I would wake up out of a dead sleep going what is going on and I would go back to sleep and again dream of and a pop up alert would pop up again and it would have a message of the election on it and I would wake up out of a dead sleep again. This went on for awhile

Then the next night. I would see these words in front of me with these headlines like on a news paper, and it was written over the Middle East and the words were so blurry, and I turn to the Lord and I said," what do I do with these words that are blurry in the air in front of me?" He turns to me and said," I want you to eras the words and rewrite the headlines over the Middle East.

In both dreams the Lord was showing me he wanted me to intercede for the middle east and to intercede for those pop up alerts in my dream over the election and other nations.

I hope this helps
Blessings
Jeanie
