Dreams are always interesting for interpretation because they can hide so many things we might not even be aware of. Dreams are great reminders about things we missed out on and things that seemed meaningless, when in reality they are anything but that.
Dreams represent a combination of real life experiences and things we only think about of and haven’t experienced ever. Sometimes they show us things we would like to see happen in real life, but this doesn’t mean this would be the best end result for us. It is no wonder people say, be careful what you dream because it might become a reality and that is exactly true.
Dreams can warn us about something that could happen but they can also just express what we are feeling right now and our current emotions. Sometimes dreams are there to tell us that we need to take care of people we neglect them and show them more love and affection because they deserve it. Dreams are there to help us understand certain situations we went through and that marked us for life.
Dreams about dogs can have both positive and negative meanings depending on what other symbols were present in the dream and depending on how we felt during this dream. Emotions we express in a dream can tell us a lot about the dream itself and help during the interpretation.
Biblical interpretation of a dream is similar to the regular interpretation, but the only difference is that Biblical interpretation uses symbolism that dates back hundreds of years in the past. Things that have a certain symbolic meaning now might not have the same symbolism in the past. In today’s text we will look into the symbolic meaning of dogs in our dreams and what they represent.
