In Series 1, I mentioned about building your inner man spirit, that is your
human spirit. Romans 8:26-27 (NIV) “In the same way, the Spirit helps us in
our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself
intercedes for us through wordless groans. And he who searches our hearts
knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for God’s people in
accordance with the will of God.”
The human spirit is designed by God to grow.
~ acceptance, acknowledgement and affirmation develop strength (Luke 1:80
“And the child grew and became strong in spirit; and he lived in the wilderness
until he appeared publicly to Israel.”)
~ Identity, sexuality, destiny and callings are in the human spirit, the “core” of
Our human spirit can be easily damaged from day one when we were conceived
in our earthly mother’s womb. We are constantly being exposed to different
environment of nurturing throughout our life span on earth.
Damages to our human spirit resulted from:-
~ Blame ~ Expectation of others ~ Defilement
~ Judging ~ legalism, shield discipline ~ Orphanage spirit
~ Disappointment ~ Sexual immorality ~ Fear
~ Criticism ~ Occult practice
~ Betrayal ~ Imprisonment spirit
~ Condemnation ~ Timidity
~ Shame ~ Broken spirit
When our human spirit is damaged, it cannot function fully. Hence we need to
build our inner man spirit to enable God’s creation fall into place in our life. We
need bring all these damaged spirit onto God to heal and deliver us. We have
the responsibility to sustain a healthy inner man spirit for the Lord.
~Proverbs 17:22, “cheerful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up
1 Corinthians 2:11, “For who knows a person’s thoughts except their own spirit
within them? In the same way no one knows the thoughts of God except the
Spirit of God.”
Human mind, we always feel weak, and many things we cannot think beyond
and accept the fact that we cannot do it. But, Holy Spirit is limitless, if you
know how to work with the Holy Spirit, you cannot imagine their strength, their
speed and wisdom of getting things done until you yourself experience it. It is
important we need to develop this intimate relationship with God.
Always desire to be with God in any situation you are in. For instance, ask the
Holy Spirit to help you with your work. I am a qualified Chartered Accountant,
I run my practice in a partnership firm, dealing with companies and individual
taxes and tax cases. A full time mother to three young children. Time to me is
so precious, as I do not have enough time to accomplish what I needed to on a
daily basis. So I often invite the Holy Spirit to help me to review files and solve
problems that arises from work. How does this work? When I review certain
files, my attention keeps on focusing on certain workpaper, truly enough when I
review it in detail, surely there are issues being neglected or overlooked. When
you are close with God, that is how God work hand in hand in your life.
Some principles apply to exercise any spiritual gifting in our life. With dream
interpretation, you need to learn to depend upon the Holy Spirit to reveal to you
what is the meaning of the dreams. Knowing the meaning of the common
symbols or pictorial images make it easier for you to understand your dream.
How do you summarize your dream? Lets look at this dream:-
“Combed my hair. Some areas of my dyed hair are very apparent (pale
yellowish and brownish) When I looked into the mirror, left side of my dyed
hair more apparent and obvious than other parts. Washed my hair and hair fell
off. Was I dreaming or my hair really fell off? Can it be due to the conditioner
which I left on for too long and forgotten to rinse it off and therefore spoilt the
hair? Or was it due to the saloon which over-dyed my hair and spoilt it? It is
true that my hair fell off! This resulted in total baldness on half of my head. I
cannot go anywhere. I arranged to go to a rich guy friend’s house and hide there
for sometime. That place is comfortable, luxurious and no need to go into the
public. (bald hair, dreamed a few times this year)”
When you read the dream, what are the key words come into your
understanding? Hair; bald. What is the action in the dream? Spoilt; fell off;
comfortable. What is the feeling of the dreamer? Feeling anxious, worry. This
dream belongs to who? Dreamer. This is also a repeated dream.
Basically, in summary, dreamer hair fell off, half bald, and finding a place to
hide, and feeling anxious yet comfortable.
The interpretation:- “Bald represent exposure, hair represent your self image,
wisdom. In this dream, you are constantly haunted by your self-created image in
real life. You have put up an image to the others that you are afraid that you
might not be able to hold on to it, that one day your true image will be exposed
or known by others. (Washed my hair and hair fell off)
You are hiding away from reality, you desire rich and famous type of living. (I
arranged to go to a rich guy friend’s house and hide there for some time.) Be
yourself, let your true identity be revealed, overcome your fear, pray and seek
God for help. Only God can help you to come out from this false identity of
yours which has constantly causing fear in your life.
Love yourself, you don’t need others to love your pretentious image, but you
need God to love you. Psalms 8:4-5 ‘what is man that You are mindful of him,
and the son of man that You visit him? For You have made him a little lower
than the angels. And You have crowned him with glory and honor. May you
discover self-identity in the Lord, and see self-thru God’s eyes.”
“Had a weird dream, I dreamt that I went to dentist to check my teeth and
apparently my gums detaching from my teeth and need major surgery. The
dentist told me he cannot do it for me, he needs to refer me to specialist and the
cost will be roughly around 12million.”
What is the key points in this dream? Dentist; teeth; gums; surgery.
Teeth indicate mulling over situation or circumstances. Gum is the supporting
system to the teeth. Dentist represent pain over genuineness. Surgery indicate
deep healing process. 12 million – 1+2 +0+0+0+0+0+0 = 3 represents God’s
loving kindness, knowledge and goodness.
Lets look at those symbols in a simpler manner. Teeth grows inside our mouth,
normally all these are associated with words. We use our mouth to speak. Gums
is very important function for our teeth, it provide support base for teeth to
grow. Seeing a dentist simply knowing that certain fixing is require when teeth
is in pain. What are the numbers represent? There are common interpretation
about numbers, I will share further with this in the next series of teaching.
God is showing the dreamer that there is an external attack on the dreamer.
Gossips and malicious words. It has been so bad that it affects the dreamer’s
core value. However, the dreamer have the courage and able to deal with the
pain and trying to prevent the damage.
Overall interpretation: “The Lord is detaching you away from your agony and
suffering that you went thru. (my gums detaching from my teeth) You are going
thru a process of deep inner healing from the Holy Spirit (need major surgery).
This process of healing required the love of Christ, knowledge and nourishment
from the word of God. Persevere thru the situation and circumstances you are
in. 12 represent fullness of God, you will thus enter the fullness of God.”
Again, as I mentioned in those previous written dream article, most of the
dreams belongs to dreamer him/herself. When you have a dream, remember to
record it down, then take some time to pray and seek God for revelation.
Always ask this question, “God what do you want me to understand from
this dream?” Pin out the summary of the dream, then identify all the key points
appear in the dream. Often the feelings and actions in the dream will post
different meaning in a dream itself. Certain common symbols can appear in a
dream setting carry different interpretation when it is combine with certain
feelings or actions in the dream.
In the next series 3, I will share more with dreams example for summary and
identifying key points, also teaching about second and third heaven.
