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

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.
