It’s been a while since I’ve done a serious dream study blog as it relates to decoding common dreams. Just this week, I had several dreams that had unmistakably repeated themes. Rather than write separate blogs based on the various types of symbols, I decided to include many symbols all into one post. As you read the below, you will see a few really good examples of how searching the Bible to find the meaning behind the meaning of parabolic symbols in your dreams will help you gain a greater dimension of understanding about what is going on in your life.

In the video and podcast episodes, I have gone into much greater elaboration than just the written text in this post.
Dream – Balcony, Bird Feeder, Plants
August 18, 2022 – I’m on a 2nd floor apartment balcony that’s mine with lots of plants and I’m putting up a bird feeder. I was wondering should I be doing this because I’m moving soon. Then, I see the person directly below me has something very similar on their balcony. All this was on the back side of the apartment building.
- Apartment = a place of close relationships or temporary dwelling (relates to my real life current living arrangement).
- Other person = due to the position of being directly under me, this can refer to my soon-future wife who comes second to me in Biblical rank order.
- Balcony = place of meditating & receiving from heaven, above the cares of the world higher perspective, spiritual accomplishment (see more here).
- Birds = spiritual beings, angels, the Holy Spirit, spiritual people who need spiritual food.
- Bird feeder = attracting good spirits / putting out spiritual food… can also be about blogs that attract people for spiritual reasons.
- Bird seed = the word of God, spiritual food; for me – it can represent content published in blogs.
- Plants = spiritual development, bearing fruit, increase, productivity.
- Back side = personal matter / of the heart, what is done in private, not visible to public.
- Moving soon = literal reference to right now for me, didn’t think I would be writing many new blogs right now but realized I needed to post these in a new blog.
Real Life Connection
This dream had a dual message. First, it related to a personal practice I recently began (again) which involves listening to a music playlist that I have not had access to in the last few months (Spotify). I play this during the daytime and especially at night during the 3-6 am prayer time. Having the right music is critical to being “in the spirit” and being sensitive to the quiet voice of the Holy Spirit. It is also necessary in getting divine insight, solutions, direction or revelation about anything you need in your life.
The presence of several plants agrees with this in that it deals with creating an atmosphere that is conducive for spiritual development and bearing fruit. If you have not made a regular practice of listening to music as I describe here, you really need to start now. I have some of the same music from my Spotify playlist also on my YouTube channel which you can get at this link.
Secondly, I understood that I needed to write a new blog (this one) with explanations of these common symbols because the content is “spiritual food” which many need. As I do that, it will attract those who need Biblical interpretation and real life example of dreams with the same symbols they are seeing. Prior to writing this blog, I had to do some extra research for passages that fit and further explained some of the symbols here. As I did that, I received a much greater understanding which I had missed in previous dreams with similar symbols.

Dream – Balls, Spinning, Field, Catching, Running
August 18, 2022 – I’m running with a guy outside in big open field. I throw a ball to him slightly behind him and he catches it and it keeps spinning in his hand behind his back. I’m also running after a football that’s spinning around it’s axis on the ground while sliding through the grass going forward.
- Spinning = work/ing, in progress, divine wisdom (think of how many things we know of that spin – the solar / planets system, wheels, piston and jet engines, fans, hard drives, tennis / soccer / volleyball, bowling balls, the process of making fabric and clothing, etc).
- Ball = a message or packet of information which can be passed from person to person, directly or by electronic means; that message can be sent in various means, by various styles, just like in an athletic sport – hard, slow, curved, in a friendly, tricky, joking or hostile manner, etc.
- Football = a top sport in USA, an object of prime attention, which for me personally refers to the events in my life that are now playing out (ref Mega Prophecy), can also relate to business which involves competition & winning; spinning on its long axis (ref this image Football GIF) represents order and skill as opposed to spinning sideways which would represent disorder and chaos.
- Catching (behind) = the recent past, receiving and understanding a message from a previous day but still meditating on it to gain a more complete understanding.
- Running with / after = running the race of faith, represents following through on what God revealed about the next steps in life which are currently in motion / “spinning”; for me, this relates to the Mega Prophecy.
- On the ground = (football) arrived from heaven, on solid ground, no longer “up in the air” (as in uncertainty), man’s dominion in the natural realm prior to reaching sonship.
- Field = (in context of sports) a place of working things out in our natural or spiritual life.
- Other person = a friend who I communicate with regularly, primarily by text message.
Real Life Connection
After I woke up, I told the above referenced friend about this dream and he told me one of his. Without telling his dream here, it dealt directly with this one above. Each of us are currently in the process of handling prophetic matters that deal with our circumstances. His calling and mine are very different but, our situation has been very much the same – waiting several years on God’s timing for everything to begin.

In order to understand God’s messages to us in these parabolic dreams, you must learn to research and study, specifically as I did hear by looking up keywords in the Bible. This is how you do Biblical dream interpretation. I have written much more about that in my e-books, which you can find in my store page.
Additionally, there are many types of dreams I have written or spoken about in my blogs, videos and podcasts. You can find all the different categories of dream symbols using either the sidebar (on a computer) or scrolling to the bottom of my homepage (on a phone/mobile device).
I strongly recommend you take advantage of all the resources I have posted either freely or in my store page here on this website. It took me many years to learn all this and I have made it available to you in order to speed up your process of learning.
