Dreams, again

I had a very vivid dream last night.

It started with me in full labour, screaming and then delivering a baby. No one told me the gender of the baby. Then it flashed to a bowl that was full of male and female symbols (the pink circle with the plus for the girls and the blue circle and arrow for the boys). Then I lifted up a blanket and saw that it was a boy. I saw the baby clear as day and he looked just like one of ours, I was ecstatic and said "my Philip is here". Then I woke up.

When I woke up, I felt almost excited. I jokingly said to my hubby that maybe we would have anpother baby and it would be a boy...what confused me the most though was all the little symbols in the bowl. I am totally stuck on that part!! (Philip is not a name I have been interested in before).

When I told my friend, Shash, about the dream she told me to look up the name Philip. So, this is what I found...Philip - The name of one of Christ's Apostles who died a martyr. This name was also of one of the seven leaders of the Church chosen by the Apostles (Acts 6:5; Acts 8:26). This Greek name means 'one who loves horses' and is a popular name in Christian countries.

So, what do I get out of this dream? Are we supposed to have another baby and it will be a boy? Is something big to change now in my life? I am totally confused about this. I have been dreaming a lot, about weird things. I dreamt about my neighbours and it wasn't a very good dream. I woke up really upset from it. I don't know why I am dreaming so much lately... anyhow, I thought I would share this dream here. I want to keep some kind of record of them, and maybe I will find out what they mean.

Have a great night everyone.


  1. I have had SO many dreams about having babies! like SO many. at least once a week it seems I am dreaming about giving birth. I don't know what it means or if it means anything at all? I know some dreams do mean things and others..... well are just dreams. So .... like the help I am giving you!! hahaha

  2. I think some of our dreams are reviewing what is stored in our minds. When God speaks to us in our dreams we know it is God. When I have a lot going on, I dream often. Sorting out what I need to take care of first. Birth can mean new beginings. The name Phillip and what it means maybe the key. Symbols in the bowl - groups of children. It could be just random thoughts coliding.
