# 6  Interpreting Dreams  - Other People in my dreams.

 When there are other people in my dream …..How do I know if                                 the dream is about me and not them ?

When dreaming about others……

       We tend to take people in dreams way to literally

       Remember dreams come in parable form…….

                        i.e. A man came to me…..He had  a dream that I hired                                  him and wasn’t going to pay him enough

Question to ask yourself when other people are in my dreams……Who is the focus of the dream ?

  1.  You are the focus……(it’s about you)….90% of your dreams are about you.

                     Meaning if you are taken out of the dream it loses all its focus.

  1.  You are participating in the dream……(about both of you)

                    (i.e. doing things with a lot of other people…i.e.sports team

                          What you see in the dream is symbolic of what is  

                         going to happen to you and the other person(s).

         C.  You are an observer in the dream……(about them)

                 ......Looking into the event.....you are above the crowd / event

                                       (.i.e.a fly on the wall)

                 .......in this type of dream nobody knows you are there.

                 …….You are just an observer

Next ask yourself these Questions.

1.  Who is this person in relation to you  ?

           A former coach, teacher, friend, relative, ……

2. What Character trait or calling does this person represent

     to you  ?  ….. lazy, bitter, happy, unorganized, rich,  friendly, etc

3. What does this person's name mean  ?

4. Is it someone with Authority ?

               ….teacher, policeman, judge. pastor, lawyer

Rules of thumb on sharing your Dreams with others

Dream about another person…..if it is good……I tell them

        When telling someone else a dream….I usually just tell them my         interpretation…..if they know dreams….and if they ask I will tell them the dream.

          When telling the interpretation make it as simple as possible….give the over-all message……not every detail.….we are sheep…..we are simple people…..don’t make it complicated….if they want to know more they will ask

        If the dream concerning them is not good….then I wait for God to open the door……Pray that He prepares their heart to hear it….and the timing for me to give it……I wait for the open door.
