To listen to the blog post “5 Hacks That Will Help You Learn How To Correctly Interpret a Dream” just click the play button below.
I will tell you how to interpret a dream by yourself and even your dreams from God. The fact is that God has always spoken to people in his dreams. If you read the Bible you will see this clearly. On the other hand not, all dreams are from God and some of them are just a reflection of your subconscious.
This can also be helpful as they tend to immerse you deeply in what you are really feeling and what is really bothering you. Before we get into the post-it, I would consider watching my video about God speaking to us in dreams so that you can better understand dreams that come from God.

Now let’s learn how to interpret a dream.
First, document the dream
Obviously, the best way to interpret a dream is to write it down. You can Click here on my partner link get a dream journal. I always recommend a dream journal because you not only want to write down the dream, but also note how you felt during the dream, record every single detail of the dream and even where you were when you had the dream. And a dream journal will help you write down all these components.
All of the things will be useful in interpreting your dream. When I get dreams about God I can often say that they are dreams about God when I hear or feel God talking to me at certain points during the dream. It is important to memorize and document these aspects of the dream as soon as you wake up. Do not wait because when you do this you will lose certain aspects of the dream that you will not be able to remember later.
Hence, keeping a dream journal will help you properly document the dream as it will help you remember every aspect of the dream that you should write down.
Second, does the dream come from God?
If you want to learn how to interpret a dream, it is best for you to know that not every dream is from God, but it is still worth learning how to interpret a dream whether it is from God or not. But dreams about God have a very different meaning from dreams that are only separate from you. Dreams about God usually have meaning to them, and the point at which God tries to warn you about something is telling you something in your future to give you a message. If we look at the story of Joseph in the Bible, the dreams that God sent consisted of:
Giving Joseph a dream about his future and telling him he would be mighty (Genesis 37)). The point of this dream was that Joseph was sold into slavery and went to prison first before reaching that point. So it is possible that God gave this dream to Joseph to comfort him that he had a fate, even though he would have to go through a great amount of trouble to get there.
Although it took years and years for the dreams to come true, Joseph was able to hold onto God’s promises even in the times when he struggled and it didn’t look like things would work out for him. So the dream was a prophetic dream to give hope to Joseph.
Another dream sent by God was the dream of Pharaoh to warn of the famine (Genesis 41). God gave this dream to Pharaoh as a warning so that he could make preparations to prevent the entire nation from starving. In this case the dream could be changed.
Third, God gave a dream to two prisoners who were in prison with Joseph (Genesis 40).. One of the dream interpretations was that one prisoner would be released and the other would be executed. In those dreams this was just a warning because it happened anyway and there was nothing they could do to change it.
So the dreams of God always have a reason to tell you something and how to find out that:
- The dream disturbs your soul. (Genesis 41: 7-8 Then Pharaoh woke up; it had been a dream. In the morning his mind was troubled.)
- You may have a feeling that during the dream someone is talking to you and immediately giving you the interpretation. As in the case in
Revelation 10: 8 Then the voice I had heard from heaven said to me again, Go and take the scroll that is open in the hand of the angel who stands on the sea and on the land. Where an angel from God spoke to him in a dream and gave him instructions.
- The dream repeats itself over and over and you have an inner knowing that there is a meaning. Pharaoh had his dream several times in different forms because God was trying to send him a message until he got the meaning of the dream so that he could prepare for the famine.
Genesis 41-3-5 After them, seven other cows, ugly and gaunt, came out of the Nile and stood next to those on the river bank. And the cows that were ugly and gaunt ate the seven smooth, fat cows. Then the Pharaoh woke up. He fell asleep again and had a second dream.
For me personally it means that I know that the dream is a God given dream, that the dream is usually longer, follows a plot, is very detailed, God speaks to me at certain points in the dream and tells me what is definite Things mean. And I tend to wake up like a jolt right after the dream ends (just like in the case of the Pharaoh in his dream). This way the dream is easier to remember, document and can stay with you for a few days because you feel that they have some hidden meaning.
Even in the case of Pharaoh, the dream stayed so far with him that he tried to find everyone to interpret it. He only knew so important that the dream was:
Genesis 41: 8 In the morning his mind was troubled, so he sent for all the magicians and sages of Egypt. Pharaoh told them his dreams, but no one could interpret them for him.
If you cannot forget the dream or the details of a dream, it is a good indication that God is trying to tell you something.
I also suggest that you receive this book: The Ultimate Guide To Understanding The Dreams You Dream Of: Biblical Keys To Hearing The Voice Of God At Night (Click To Buy)
Not only is this book a Christian based dream dictionary, but it is also a book that will give you a better understanding of how to understand your dreams, interpret your dreams, and how God given dreams are formatted and why. In this way, you can better understand which dreams God gave and which do not belong to your subconscious.
Third, is the dream coming out of your head?
Most of the dreams that come from your subconscious are still meaningful because they are dreams that you have to deal with. These dreams can be shorter, more scattered, and you may not be able to remember every detail as much as you would a God-given dream. You may be able to remember it when you wake up, but the details of the dream may fade as the day progresses if you don’t record them.
The dream can also reflect something in your waking life. If you feel helpless in life, maybe you are trying to do a task in your dream, but you cannot symbolize the helplessness in your real life. Your unconscious dreams can reflect your everyday feelings, even if you don’t recognize them at first. It is therefore important to still write down the dream so that you can see which dream comes from where when you learn to interpret your dream.
Fourth, interpret the dream
For this part, you want to have a dream dictionary. Firstly, I suggest you get this
While this dream dictionary is great, it doesn’t have everything either. For this reason, I propose another more intensive dream dictionary here. I suggest some of them:
- Dreams Uncovered: Guide to Interpreting Biblical Dreams (Click Here to Buy) . This Biblical Dream Interpretation Guide provides the basic tools and information to help dreamers understand dreams. The book includes the scientific and spiritual foundations of dreaming, an explanation of what to do with dreams, instructions on how to interpret dreams, and a dream symbol dictionary to explain the spiritual meanings behind words.
- Dreamer’s Dictionary (click here to buy) This backlist favorite has sold over 1 million copies since it was first published. The result of years of research, this easy-to-use guide shows how to distinguish the four types of dreams, identify dream symbols, and understand their meanings.
When interpreting the dream, you will want to select and compare with the dictionary important symbols, colors, places and everything that you remember during the dream. It is also important not to consider the dream dictionary as absolute.
That is, if you see a moon in your dream and compare it with the dream dictionary, and the meaning of the moon does not resonate with you, then do not accept this interpretation. Instead, make sure you are interpreting other aspects of the dream, and then try to place the unknown aspect of the dream afterwards. Only take what makes sense to you.
Also, as the Bible says, pray about the meaning of the dream to make sure it is right. At the end of the day, the purpose of a dream is not to misunderstand the dream meaning that serves no purpose for you. But to make sure you get it right and God is the best way to confirm what the dream means.
Fifth, practice makes perfect
Dream interpretation is an art and requires practice. I am sure that it is something that anyone can do, but don’t just think that you have a dream and are trying to interpret it, you will get it 100% right.
Therefore it is important to a Dream Journal click here again to buy. Interpret the dreams as they come and visit them frequently to see if your interpretation is correct.
