Dream meaning: Angel

AngelIn its best sense, the appearance of an angel often precedes a revelation or insight and heralds the need for or represents the active process of spiritual transformation; a wisdom message.

Angels represent invisible energy forces at work, which have become temporarily visible; therefore, unconscious material coming into consciousness. In metaphysics, angels have become devas, natural energy forces that also bring wisdom messages, often related to gardening or ecology but not necessarily limited to those subjects. Dream interpretation of angels, or other winged humans, may represent high or spirited ideals; lofty goals; religious aspirations; feeling a need for guidance.

In early Christianity, angels symbolized the death, or repression, of animal instincts, which may be what is now coming into your conscious awareness. They can also symbolize someone who has died, and in that sense represent eternity; or kinship with God. In Christian symbolism the evangelist Mathew is represented as an angel.

    I had a dream of an angel in the sky and when he looked at me he was my brother who passed away 4 yrs ago. I don’t know what it means. I think about it often because if he was trying to tell me something I don’t get it. I miss him dearly.

    I dreamt of an angel holding me from behind and telling me not to worry. THe angel told me to cry as much as I want, and then I’ll feel better. The angel was not very tall but had huge wings.

    I had a dream, that I had angel wings. I was surprised to see them given to me. I felt them on my back. They were not very large.

    I dreamt I had a 5 year old boy named Justin, he had blonde hair like my husband, but brown eyes like mine. He was on his bed playing with toys and saying random things to me about God. There was a lamp in the room and the shape of his shadow showed he had wings..though they were not visible when you looked at him. I don’t have any children and am not…nor have I ever been..pregnant.

    My friend had a dream where he could see an angel’s legs coming down through the ceiling. There was a huge white light all around it, but then he closed his eyes. He could hear a loud sound around him of big wings flapping. Also sensing this light while still keeping his eyes closed, he started to feel very hot and
    that he was being restricted by some sort of cap pushing down on his head. He had to fight with all his strength to lift it off. Then he woke up. This dream has bothered him a lot.
