  1. So heres my dream, and i want some answers. (please)
    *In the dream, im dead and so is everybody that i mention (excpet for my mom and dad)
    So when Im walking around my neighborhood, I suddenly see my friend, and crush flying towards me. ( my friend flying and shes holding him) Then my friend quickly drops my crush on the floor, holds my hand, and my crush is clasping onto my waist. In the dream, after we die, we have to go to this building where they choose what happens to you. So we were flying to the building, but we a hit a bridge that leads to the building under it. We manage to find a cart we can ride to the building cuz under the bridge, theres railroads. We make it to the building. In the entrance, theres a large pit of different stones, and behind the pit, theres a desk with 2 ladies and on both sides of the desk, theres doors (left and right). (kinda like a desk for hotels) they proceed to tell me to pick a stone that speaks with my soul. I look deeply for the stone, but there isnt any. I wandered to the door on the left and see my mom and dad. My mom told me my dad is getting sprayed with a gas. she never told me why or how, and she never told me what is gonna happen to her. As if it were a goodbye, we hugged. I went back to the desk and told one of the ladies that i didnt have a stone that speaks to my soul. She told me that i was one of the special children and told me to go outside to the railroad where there was a cart waitng for me. I said bye to my crush and friend and I walked to the cart. Inside were other children and my other friend’s little sister. We said hi and we chatted whilst the cart took us where we need to go. I didnt know where we were going. Turns out we r going to our houses of when we died. The cart makes it to my house, and i walk inside. I see my mom a dad and run for a hug. But, like a ghost, I was transparent and couldnt hug them, and instead just went right through them. I tried to communicate with them, but it was like i didnt exist. I went to the bathroom to do my buisness, and saw in the mirror i had wings and a halo. I was a guardian angel. I was chosen to protect my parents, but i couldnt do anything with them. Just watch them. I went to my room (which was now a different child of my parents) to cry. Then i woke up,

  2. I had a dream in which an angel saved me from falling and wrapped his wings around my head and healed a back pain by touching my back with its wings.

    • I dreamed about seeing myself sinking in a dark water, as my body continuesly going deep, i also tried to swim back to the top, and when i finally did, i see myself wet and suddenly someone throw a thing on me that I immediately catch and hold it in my arms. This thing is white and i seen wings, it is like a child in a long white dress, she has her white long hair, i didnt see her face but i am holding her in my arms like hugging a person, and saying to myself ” im sure we will not gonna be drown because i know how to swim ” and i carry her until the white human i was saw earlier became the child of my current boyfriend. And as ive seen her i seen myself crying because of the happiness i felt. And i seen her she also had a teary eyes looking at me.

  3. I dreamt about a ghost who appeared in our school bus. I didn’t know that my friends saw the ghost too because i thought it was only imagination and the ghost face is really creepy and we’re really scared when we talked about it. After it, i woke up (still a dream) and went near our window and i saw a little girl who has a black hair and white dress i think and i asked my mom if there’s a visitor or whatever but after the girl there was also a boy which has a yellow hair and white polo and my vision became a little blurry because they are like shining shimmering and the boy is raising his hands to me. What does that mean?

  4. Had a dream at 13 yo now I’m 30. Walking in a duned desert at night. I get to the top of a dune and see a sword surrounded by blue lightning a few dunes away. Than I heard a voice that came from a cloud that said “Fear not for I am ______… you have been chosen. I said no, no! I felt extreme love that was void and the sadness was burried deep when I felt into it’s soul. It looked bright but felt dark. I awoke overpowerd and crying.

  5. I am not religious but I would like to think there was something else after death. I was diagnosed with lung cancer 11 months ago. After treatment I now have a 30 % chance of living for 5 years if I do my chances increase greatly .I had a dream last night what I can only describe as 2 figure in white robes one on each arm trying to lift me up after a few feet in the air I started to struggle so they would let go and they did I remember waking up shouting to my wife they are trying to take me. I can’t get this dream out of my head should I have let them take me ? or did I do right to fight it now I am worried when it is my time will they come back for me or will I go the other way.

    • I also saw figures in white robes 2 days after with my father decreased taking him upwards. Maybe in your dream god thinks its not the right time, giving you a chance to search for an answer to your illness? I honestly believe out destiny is written so frighting it off or not makes no difference. I wish very best and good luck to your treatments.

  6. Mark H Smith on

    So I usually don’t post anything like this, I’m a devout Christian although I do not attend church regularly my Bible is never far away from me. Anyway this is the dream that I had last night I was at a beach near the seaside there were people there all doing things like they would do at the beach and then all of a sudden I noticed when I looked up at the sky it was very dark blue a very beautiful blue, and there were five darker spots with one in the center, they weren’t black they were just a little darker so you can see them. After looking down and then looking back up again they were gone and I noticed in their place there seem to be well for lack of a better term invisible clouds… These clouds came down to the beach and they turned in 2A translucent light and then all but one left almost instantly this one went up on the beach going to various people and passing others. I was pretty scared when I saw it but then again there was a cam that I can’t explain as a light became closer it took form and it was an old man with long white hair who I believe to be an angel he was wearing and almost pure white cloth and bodice and a gold band around the top and around the bottom and behind him we’re a very large set of wings not like butterfly wings these went out and then went down to the ground almost like something you would see and a cemetery. The strange thing was this person had no feet and did not speak as he became closer to me I felt very strange I was a little scared but like I said before I was calm at the same time as he became close enough to touch me it’s like he brushed me but he went through me and then stopped. After a moment he then walked on it was the most Indescribable feeling I can ever tell you a feeling of warmth of love and acceptance at that point I felt everything change I looked at the person next to me as the angel kept walking by and the person said to me we’re going home and without skipping a heartbeat I said uh huh. The strange thing about all of this before the white lights came down there were literally thousands if not millions of birds that were also flying through the sky almost blocking out the Sun but they didn’t it’s hard to explain. When I woke up it’s like I can think of nothing else but this dream and there’s also something about me that’s changed inside, it’s like acceptance and I noticed I don’t get angry or upset. What does the dream mean I’m not sure but if I had to guess I would have to say I’ve truly been blessed and that I have met the Lord or his messenger. I can’t tell you how much this insignificant dream has changed my life just in the past day. I feel good inside and out there’s no anger no disgruntled this know anything I’m just happy and I know that when my turn comes to leave this earth there’s something so amazing that I can’t wait to see it.

  8. Marilyn Sanchez on

    God showed me a vision of a cherubim angel flying above children playing in the meadows, i just wasnt sure what that meant

  9. Thomas Marcus on

    I dreamed an angel made out of clouds was fluttering around in the clouds disappearing and reappearing with the horn in his hand blowing the horn but the sound was faint he kept flying around very quickly and rapidly what does this mean anyone.

  10. Jaden Lynn on

    Lately I have been having a recurring dream. In this dream I am looking at a star that is split in half. It is still connected but the left half and the right half are complexly different. The left half is shining and I can hear the sounds of children laughing and beautiful sounds of nature. There is also a peaceful warmth coming out of it and the edges of it are glowing. However, the right half is dark and looming. I can hear screams coming out of it and people crying. There is a horrible warmth coming out of it that I could literally feel and the edges of this side are cracked and old. What does this dream mean?

  11. About 2 years ago I had many dreams of being an angel, no idea what it means
    In the first dream of the story I happened to be in a rural mountainous place where there was a big war between angels and demons. As the battle started approaching where I was, I started praying out of fear; A while later a group of warrior angels surrounded me, in a protective manner; the leader stepped forward from the circle and poured a viscous liquid that appeared to be a sort of oil on my legs and upper back. My legs shrank with a bronze color and a big pair of feathery wings sprouted from my back. No word was uttered in this dream, only that this leader appeared to be looking up and waiting for a command before pouring this liquid. In the dream the same situation appeared to be happening to a few other people

    After this first dream, I had many dreams over a period of many months in which I would fight evil beings, learn and improve my flying, learn to handle wind gusts, protect and heal other people, etc.

    I will include a couple of these dreams that felt very powerful:
    In one of these dreams I dreamt with a bird-headed man, he was either an eagle or a falcon; he was a wise patient teacher and I kept asking him the same question (what I am) but that did not seem to upset him no matter how hard I tried. He would answer with a strange word that I could not understand
    After that scene I “woke up” in my room, everything looked the same but I could not see my [then] wife. Things did not appear quite right and at that moment I realized that I was laying on top of thick jet black feathery wings. They were very brilliant/spotless extremely beautiful black wings. I played with my dog for a little while and then crossed the outer wall and took a brief flight. When I came back to my room I found a bald woman staring at my side of the bed. I touched her in the forehead and started praying the Our Father prayer. She immediately started shaking and then I woke up when I finished.

    In another dream I was walking through an alley and there come this couple, walking together and suddenly the guy, kind of weird looking, stopped in front of me and told me that he felt the need to help me; he said that there was something open with me that needed to be closed. I was kind of curious although I did not get a good vibe from him (I dislike any religion that does not put God in first place) and he proceeded by hugging me (like chest bumping -> some African religions bless in this manner) and after a while he came apart and said with fear that he cannot close “it”. I then laughed at him and told him that he cannot close it because I am an angel
    Something curious is that my wings have kept growing through my dreams.

    I had dream 3 years ago…2 male angels appeared on my dreams and told me that i am the princess..before theyre gone they told me that my sister julie the nun is the sainth therese…they put many white rosies on my head and many butterflies dancing around me..

  13. My grandmother recently passed away, the night of her funeral I had a strange dream. I was in a room that was super white, so white that you couldn’t tell where the walls floor or ceiling were, there was no source of light and the white room didn’t hurt my eyes. A man dressed in black was in the room with me, he looked a little like my martial arts instructor from many years ago, he also had passed away about 10 years ago. He placed a cornucopia on the table and said this is the cornucopia of your grandmother for you. He reached in and began to pull out old photos of my childhood and memories with her. He said keep and remember what she has given you. She taught me everything good. I think the man was an angel

  14. I had a dream where I saw I silver goose flying outside my window. Eventually I went outside to see more clearly. As I was standing outside the silver goose came closer and when it was near enough I realised it was an angel with a girl’s face. She said something like “I’m coming for you” or “I’m coming”. Not 100% sure.

  15. All my life I have been seeing strange dreams from angels to the end of the world. I have been to heaven I saw and heard group of people singing hallelujah!!!! hallelujah!!!!!. Today I saw another dream. It was a spiritual being but no wings. I called him JESUS in the dream. We were eating rice together in one plate. We were so close… I woke up… I was not hungry at all. Many will say maybe I was hungry.. I have been seeing this…. Please can any one tell me the meaning of this dream and seeing heaven please

  16. I believe three angels came to me but not in a dream. However I was in bed and almost falling asleep. They were all female, one being much more important than the other two. She stood in the middle. They were not threatening and brought peace and calm. The one standing in the middle spoke in a quiet, calm , beautiful voice that seemed to echo across the room. She said one word which was “Surm”. The other two agreed although they said nothing, I just sensed that they agreed. Then they left. I’ve never forgotten this and since looked up the word Surm. I know what it means, I just don’t understand the significance of it and the visit from the angels.

    • I had the same situation in my dream with the three angels, the middle one being more prominent but i can’t remember if they said anything, i just remember i reached out to the middle one and she grabbed my arm and took me away into a cloudy bright place in the sky or something which i guess was heaven, but i felt instant peace and calm.

  17. I recently have lost my Akita dog to cancer. I am a mess. I was awakened by what I think was an angel rushing at me holding an Akita puppy. I need to know what this means? Please.

  18. Hal Sigmund on

    Recently, I had a dream where a woman was with me. I helped her with some kind of discomfort that she seemed to be experiencing. She looked like Halle Berry.

    When I was done, she told that she felt better and then gave me the most beautiful smile I have ever seen. The love that surrounded her was so beautiful and perfect that I have no words to describe it. She gave me her unconditional love and for a few moments, I felt as if i was in paradise – that I had achieved nirvana. I have never believed I could feel love until this experience.

    When I awoke from the dream, I knew it was more than that. It is as if something in my body and spirit has been profoundly moved.

    I believe that she was an angel and I hope that I get to meet her again. What she gave to me in those few seconds makes me want to be better human being.

  19. I had a dream of a angel. He was like turning slowly. And on his back was the number 15. I asked him what the number was. He told me February 15, 2018. I asked him what the date was for. He answered, “Death.” I told my friends about it, and they did some research (because why not) and we found out that February 15, 2018 was a solar eclipse. It doesn’t seem like much, but it seemed fishy to us. I’m Christian btw and the angel was all white and had wings on his back.

  20. I had a dream where the archangel Michael approached me at an outdoor dining table, where I was eating with friends who didn’t notice him. He had taken the form of an average looking, balding man… When I acknowledged him, he lifted me by my neck and looked into my eyes ( I knew who he was without him saying ), he said “Are you aware of the time that is upon us? ” I was understood in the dream, though not now, what he was talking about and immediately answered “YES!”… To which he smiled and put me down. As he walked away I shouted, “Praise God!” and he looked back. I can’t remember what he said at that point because it was muffled. I woke up at that point, 4am, and struggled to sleep again afterward.
    I’m struggling to find an apt interpretation of this dream and need help?

  21. Leonard Horne on

    Wow. I just drempt that an friend name vermel..a black female came walking up to me. We hugged n she had a smile then towards end i ask why she was here. Is it time. I asked for more time atleast so i can outfit prepare. Asked for after payday..don’t kbow why. 11.28.2017 was this dream on a Tuesday norn. I cried in my dream then calm came. I searched internet n found this site n begin to write. In my dream were people i dreamed about who i had flying with me in the past. I was concern that they were transformed into a sleep as the angel spoke. I didn’t want them to hear. Dhe said they couldn’t hear. I woke up in peace but conflicted with the dream. May my dream mean prosperity n forgiveness n lead me to a better future of love n love ones. Although she gave me a deadline i believe thst every one human day is thousands for God.

  22. What does it mean when good white angels are helping me fight evil black angels? After battle white angels turn into family members that have past and some still with us.

  23. I had a dream that I woke and saw a black angel in the corner, facing the corner, sad, I m not sure how to translate this?

  24. I dreamt that an angel in white was guiding me showing me the way, and as I followed and got to the end it turned into a not so good human form?
