What's In A Dream?


So some days ago I was chatting with a friend and blog reader and we had a bit of a debate about the post below. We argued about how dreams are just our imaginations being overly active, (especially if you're not inclined to believe the spiritual angle of things) or how they're much more. We read the dream below and while I wondered how anyone could read this without thinking that it's something that should be taken beyond face value, my 'opponent' said it's probably just a sign that he needs to sit up. Anyways I thought to share with you guys and hear your thoughts. 





I'm a 29 old self employed man, I am not married and don't have children.  
Every night for the past 10 years  and I mean every night, I have had the same dream. This dream takes me back to either my primary school, secondary school or the University,  where I'm usually in a class with my mates both the ones I heard died years back and the ones I haven't seen since we all left the institutions. 
In this dream, we're usually in a classroom writing either a test or an exam. The questions are always  simple so I answer them but never get  them submitted. I watch everybody in the class submit except me. When ever I get up to submit, it's either the paper disappears or I see a blank sheet, sometimes I get too weak to get up from my seat or as I approach the teacher I wake up from the dream. Bottom line is I've never submitted any exam sheet before for the past 10 years.

That's not the one that bothers me. Recently the dream changed to never getting to my proposed destination. Every time I try to go out, I never do. I dress up get into my car and it never starts. My car in real life is very sound, it has never disappointed me before so why is it that it doesn't move in my dreams. Even when I struggle to go out, I end up at the same spot.

So last night/this morning I had the same dream, this time it was me and my older sister. We were going to get some money from her debtors, we both got into her car and drove off, some minutes after we left her house the car stopped and the next thing we found ourselves in a grave yard dancing for a group of people.  

I'm tired of keeping this dreams to myself, I've not been able to tell a soul because I dont want any disturbance around me. 

But I am here as an anonymous person to seek help. Does this dream make me stagnant? 
Because I really can't make any meaning of life. I still depend on my sisters to live. Never had a job, never had a serious relationship. I'm pretty much the same guy from 10 years ago.

Can someone tell me what this dreams mean?
Should I be worried?


.........

This mail was sent to Linda Ikeji, for Linda Ikeji's blog. 

I found it most shocking that this guy actually typed this out and still ended by asking if he should be worried. 

Do your dreams mean anything more than a source of entertainment to you while you sleep?
Do dreams hold meanings?
Have you had experiences similar to the poster's above?
What's your general opinion on this mail/matter?

  6. Having the same dream (or theme in dreams) every night for 10 years is significant. I'm not sure it is spiritual. It could also be his unconsious manifesting some conflict. Does he feel stagnant in his life? Does he feel like he has unfinished goals? Those are the things he should address. I also think he should pray for direction from God concerning his dream. In short, I think the dreams are the symptom, not the cause.

  10. Dreams hold very serious meaning, sometimes that's how God communicates to us. My Mum is a special being when it comes to dreams, we call her Joseph the dreamer. When I was in university, I used to dream of exam questions. I get to see all the areas/topics where the questions wld. Come from and I practice, when I get to exam hall, it's the same.

    This fellow needs to upgrade his spiritual life and seek God's intervention. He is clearly in bondage. Clare

    1. I hope u graduated with a First Class

      Meanwhile, dreams are how your emotions interpretes the physical. Real or Unreal, emotions don't care. Now when (because u're afraid) u don't want to think or puzzle over a particular dream over n over, u actually end up thinking abt it over n over. My advice, He needs a passionate GirlFriend.

  13. I had a dream similar to this for almost two years. I was bitter angry and stagnant. The prayers didn't seem to be answered. When I turned to praises and thanksgiving as well as speaking positive to My life. I saw changes. Long story short I got an oil and gas job last month and the testimonies abound. GOD IS GOOD.

  14. Dreams are important. Its a medium of communication BTW the physical and spiritual. Some dreams are caused by fever. Some when one is thinking so much about an issue. And some, a clear spiritual message. Simply pray for discernment. As per this individual, the dream indicates backwardness, stagnancy, retrogression and lack of progress in whatever he puts his hands to do. The individual needs deliverance.

Turia Pitt Suffered 65% Burns But Loved Conquered All...

Amazing Story Shared by Dr. Ben Carson on Facebook, i thought it is inspiring and i decided to share;

The Australian ex-model Turia Pitt suffered burns to 65 per cent of her body, lost her fingers and thumb on her right hand and spent five months in hospital after she was trapped by a grassfire in a 100 kilometre ultra-marathon in the Kimberley. Her boyfriend decided to quit his job to care for her recovery. 
Days ago, in an interview for CNN they asked him:
"Did you at any moment think about leaving her and hiring someone to take care of her and moving on with your life?"

His reply touched the world:

"I married her soul, her character, and she's the only woman that will continue to fulfill my dreams."

This made me very reflective. I just wonder; if the person you love today encounters an incident or accident that transforms who they are physically, it could be amputation, it could be paralysis, it could be severe burns that scald their flesh beyond recognition, w…

#WriteRight. VIVIAN: MY FIRST SEX EXPERIENCE WITH MY BOYFRIEND

He was my coursemate, crush, then my boyfriend.... he was super
intelligent, smart, tall, dark and handsome. Believe me he got
swag, but he didn't seem to notice me. (I'm a nerd but a sassy one
if I say so myself).  So oneday I decided to take it to another level..
After listening to a song "IF YOU LOVE SOMEBODY TELL THEM THAT YOU
LOVE THEM and watching the season film of The Secret Life of
American Teenagers. ..when Amy Jeugerns mum told her "you are only
young once". LOL that part got me.
Hope you know what i mean?

Though I'm okay with chemistry class I approached him to coach me for
the Quiz that was coming up, we found out that we had this
great chemistry between us.. hehehe both the covalent and
electrovalent bonds....

So one thing led to another till one unusual Saturday. I invited
him to my house and he came. The guy got swag, he even came
with a packet of durex condom.
We talked for a while and and and and and and

Good morning people! 
Just checking in to sign the register. Lol. It's been a very busy week and it looks like it might be an even busier weekend. I was hoping to get some writing done when I got to the airport yesterday but I even almost missed my flight. It was hopeless trying to do any work on the plane as it was bumpy af, and this toddler behind me wouldn't stop screaming in piercing shrieks like he was being exorcised. 
I got into town pretty late and needed to keep an appointment ASAP. I'm heading out right now and it's going to be a long day, but thought I should drop this first. 
Have a splendid day. Im'ma be back soon.

THE ‘NEW’ SIDE CHICK: I WAS HER

A side chick is commonly known as a mistress or a woman that’s romantically involved with a man who is in a committed relationship.  However after doing some reflecting, I realize that’s not the only type of side chick.  I want to discuss “the new side chick”–a woman who decides to stay by a man’s side after he has expressed his lack of relationship intentions with her through his words or actions.  So many women have made this mistake at least once in their lifetime, and unfortunately I’ve done the same thing. I like to think of the new side chick as an appetizer.  You’re there just to satisfy the immediate appetite of the man, but as soon as that mouth-watering entrée comes out to the table, you will get pushed to the side, literally.  Why?  Because that entrée is what he really wanted; he went to the restaurant to order steak, not hot wings.  You were just a placeholder, fling, temporary commitment, or  maybe even just a “good ol time” until what he really wanted was presented to hi…

Shhhhhhh....

I'm in an amebo mood tonight. Don't ask me, I honestly don't know why. Also I'd like to share too but I'd do that anonymously in the comment section. Tonight I want to talk about secrets. It's ok, we can all be anonymous. 
Is it true that EVERYBODY has a secret? 
Is there anyone here who doesn't have a secret? I'd really like to know; You're a completely open book and there's not ONE thing about you that you wouldn't mind other people knowing about? Please raise your hands up. 
And for the rest of us, what's something about you that no one knows, or very few people know? Who's got a dark secret here, or a weird one, or a funny one even? I really don't mean to be invasive but I don't want to be the only one sharing, plus I think hearing other people's secrets is quite fun, don't you think?

Let's Be Random Together! (Open Keypad).

Hey guys, a while back blog reader F said something about creating an Open Keypad post, where you can write whatever you want in the comment section. I thought it was a fun idea!
So who is interested? Comment on anything you feel like, ask me or anyone a question, talk about how your day went, your job, your interests, tell us something about you that we don't know, share a testimony with us, rant about anything you feel like, talk about your crush/boo/spouse/relationship/marriage, challenges you're facing, ANYTHING AT ALL! 
I'll only make one request; that we stay civil. 

(F it was you who made this suggestion, right? I'm not too sure and I can't even remember the post the comment was made on). 
BTW please Ejoeccome out come out, wherever you are!
