  • Comparing Intrinsic and Extrinsic Dreams By Michael Wise In the Understanding Dreams and Visions course you are taught the difference between intrinsic and extrinsic dreams. Identifying this characteristic, which determines if the dream is about you (intrinsic) or somebody else (extrinsic), is just one step of recording and interpreting your dreams.
  • What Condition is your Vehicle? By Michael Wise If you have a dream in which you’re in a vehicle of some sort, there’s a pretty good chance that the vehicle is playing an important role in the plot of the dream. It may not be the star of the film, but it’s certainly not an extra. And most of the time, something isn’t exactly right about that vehicle.
  • Symbolism in Dreams? By Michael Wise Without the guidance of the Holy Spirit, there is no true interpretation of a dream. For that reason, Streams Ministries requires its students to take the Art of Hearing God course before taking the Understanding of Dreams and Visions course. Although you’ll find study cards on this website that reference common dream symbols and their meaning, using those cards exclusively to interpret a dream simply won’t work.
  • Positional Symbolism in Dreams By Michael Wise People in dreams—especially famous people or people in positions of authority in our life or the lives of others—will often be used in dreams to represent their position, or function at-large.
  • The Passage of Time By Michael Wise One of the unique facets of a dream involves time—how God reveals our past and how He reveals the future.
  • No place like home By Michael Wise God uses your home in your dreams to communicate issues of your life. In fact, even the rooms inside that house have meaning in and of themselves.
  • Exposed! Nakedness and Bathrooms in Dreams By Michael Wise Whether we’re willing to admit it or not, we’ve all had a dream at some point in time that we’d rather not share. We may have dreamt that we were using the restroom in front of complete strangers or standing naked before family and friends. Though we often consider these dreams to be “dirty” and embarrassing to talk about, they usually aren’t as bad as we think.
  • How Do You Feel? By Michael Wise One of the most important things to remember about your dream—and it's important to do this right after waking up—is how you felt during the dream and what lingering feeling you had after waking up from the dream. Sometimes "how you felt" about the dream can be subtle. It's on these occasions where it's most important to include this somewhere in your dream entry. For example (Feeling: When the dream started, I felt a little apprehensive, but as it progressed, I felt more and more comfortable). Remembering and writing down how you felt right after having a dream is an important habit to get into. Seemingly positive events can happen in a dream, but if you wake up with an uneasy feeling, the interpretation of that dream might change—from an encouraging dream to a warning dream. Sometimes this is the subtle difference between good and God.
  • What was that all about? Flushing Dreams By Michael Wise We live in a culture of increasing darkness and depravity. Mankind is constantly bombarded with worldly and ungodly spirits and influences that can distract us from seeking out and embracing God’s truth. God sends flushing dreams to cleanse us of those day to day encounters that would defile us if they were not washed off of us.
  • Changing the Outcome in Your Dreams By Michael Wise In a website poll, we asked for your thoughts on changing the outcome of your dreams. While 77 percent of you believe that it is possible to alter your dreams, four percent disagree. To those still undecided on the matter, you might be surprised to know that both answers are correct!
  • A Blast from the Past By Michael Wise Another cool way God reveals issues in your life through your dreams is to take you back to where you used to live. Those dreams are often speaking of issues that took root at the time you lived in that house.
  • Animals in Dreams By Michael Wise About a fourth of the dreams we as interpreters encounter will involve animals, insects, or creatures of some sort. As you've probably already guessed, animal activity in dreams is not random.
