This morning I saw two dogs in my dream.
I was standing by a side walk waiting for a bus and two dogs walked up to me, one was brown and the other black. Behind me stood some people who were also waiting for the bus but they were sitting down, in the dream I faced the dogs and when the bus came I went on.
Now while on the bus I realized that I had a sandwich in my hand which I shared with the bus driver, he in turn took the egg yolk from out the sandwich with his bare hand and gave it to me.
Anyone who knows me in real life, knows that I would never eat that, especially with him giving me food with his hands. But in the dream I took the egg and held it to my chin as if to fool him that I would eat it, then I woke up. It has been two days now since I have been getting dreams where in which I am offered food which to my delight I did not eat.
It is NEVER good to eat in your dreams! I know I am surprising you all with this one but it is the truth. All my life growing up, people always said that eating in your dreams was good. “It brings money, prosperity, and good luck,” they said. That is not true. At least being given food to eat is not good.
This is how obeah takes effect – through your visions and dreams. We will discuss this and all other dream metaphors today on this post.
Note: To know the full interpretation of a dream depends on many factors including time, circumstance, culture & beliefs, and the scenes (or other dreams) that immediately followed or preceded. This all determines the exact meaning of a particular dream.
The list below are GENERAL interpretations.
Teeth Falling Out – Teeth falling out in your dreams is indicative of Death. But pay attention to which tooth it was and how many. If the tooth was in the back, the death will be of person you know but are not close to. If the tooth is to the side, the person is still closer but not a relative. If the tooth is in the front, the person is a relative/loved one or a person very very close to you. Contact a competent spiritualist immediately to solve this before it occurs in real life.
Rotting or Broken Teeth – To dream of rotting or broken teeth tells of someone who is or will become very ill, or is sick and dying. Again, pay attention to the position of the tooth to get an idea of who the person could be.
Brushing Your Teeth – To dream of brushing your teeth tells of an illness.
Weddings – To dream of a wedding is indicative of death, especially if you see the bride or groom in their gowns and tuxedos.
A Wedding but no Bride or Groom – To dream of a wedding without a bride or groom, then the possibility of death can be avoided.
Snakes, Dogs, Lions, Tigers –Threatening animals such as these tells of an enemy. But what was your interaction with it? Were you bitten? If so, this is indicative of obeah which has connected through this bite (in other words, being conquered by an enemy). Or did you harm or kill the animal? If so, great! You have defeated an enemy.
Also note, dogs are not always enemies. It often depends on how it appears and how it interacts. Obviously, a threatening dog is no good sign.
Fishes – To dream of fishes tells of a pregnancy.
Spiders/Cobwebs – Spiders and cobwebs, both in real life and dream state, are indications of a blocked way. Beware of mysterious cobwebs tying up your face or body. It isn’t good.
A Sick Person who is Suddenly OK – To dream a person who is ill in waking life, but healthy and happy in dream state indicates a death that is very soon to come.
Rats/Mice – To dream of rats or mice warns of trickery or a trickster around you or to come.
Cats –To dream of cats denotes ill luck if you don’t succeed in killing it or driving it away! They are also signs of “Witches”. Depending on your beliefs, this can simply translate to an enemy who is involved with dark arts.
Rice – To dream of rice brings abundance. This is also the case of Fruits and Vegetables, and an array of Sweets, as long as you are not eating them (see below).
Eating in Your Dreams – To dream of yourself being given food to eat can indicate many things and none of them good. Being given food often indicates obeah/witchcraft, and your consumption of it means that it has been successfully given to you.
Your Old House – To dream yourself in an old house, you will hear of a death, this is also so if you dream of building a house.
A Fast Moving Train – To dream of a fast moving train shows that someone will visit you but that person will soon make his transition, or you should look out for a message from an ancestor.
Flying – To dream of flying shows that you will succeed in life and prosper.
Black Cat – The old belief of “black cats are bad luck” is actually true. If one happens to cross your path, you will hear bad news or be disappointed. I never believed in this, but it has been proven to me through experience.
Feces – To dream of feces in any way is a sign of money! Some prosperity will be coming your way.
Bees – To dream of bees is also a sign of money (this is also so in waking life when bees fly around you – it s a blessing, not a curse). Seeing huge black bees also indicates that you will hear some news!
Wasps – Wasps are indicative of quarrel and contention. This also holds true in waking life. If you are stung by a wasp, beware of a huge problem! (“huge” meaning police, war, jail, or anything of a large negative nature).
Gun Shot – To be shot in a dream of any kind is never good. This is a huge indication of witchcraft/obeah that has certainly connected. The result in waking life can either be severe illness, death, spiritual bondage, madness, or other worse cases. Immediately contact a competent spiritualist for assistance!
Ringing in Your Ears – If you get this, someone is currently calling your name or speaking about you.
Sneezing 3 Times Straight – Someone is talking about you!
Right Hand Itch – Money is on its way
Left hand Itches – Money is going out or you will spend. For some people, the left hand represents money coming in rather than going out. See what happens next for you in order to determine which hand represents what in your case.
Left Eye Jump – This indicates tears or rain. The left eye brings water.
Right Eye Jump – You will see someone who you have not seen in a long time!
Bottom of Your Feet Itches – You will travel.
Knee itches – You will change your bed.
Your Knife Falls on it’s Back (standing up) – You will move or someone in your house will move out
Salt Spills -Salt that spills “accidentally” indicates a big quarrel to come! (tip: sprinkle a little cool water over the spilled salt to cool the impending argument/war. It will either reduce the effect, lessen the likelihood, or remove it completely).
