Dreams & Visions (Review)
This is a review for the book "Dreams & Visions" by Jane Hamon. I will admit that I usually read these type of books with a bit of skepticism. But I really enjoyed this book about dreams and visions.
In this book, Jane Hamon does a great job of discussing dreams and visions as they occurred in the scripture. Then she goes over the three different types of dreams as she sees it: spiritual dreams which are inspired by God, natural dreams which are simply produced by the natural processes of a person's mind, and false dreams which are demon inspired. She spends a great deal of time going over each of these different types of dreams and how you can know which category your dream falls into. She also discusses praying about interpreting dreams so you can truly understand them. For example, having a dream where you feel urgent about someone in your life may mean you need to pray as an intercessor for them. Having a dream where you are drowning may mean that you are putting too many burdens on yourself and you need to re-prioritize. Dreaming about loved ones who have passed away may mean you haven't dealt fully with your grief.
Hamon admits that she can't just lay out a list of dream interpretations, since a dog in my dream could mean a companion; a protector, but a dog in your dream could be frightening and on the attack. She gives a general idea of what certain things usually mean in dreams, based on what they mean in the scriptures. For example, a fountain or a door may mean Christ. A thief might symbolize Satan.
I really enjoyed this book. It definitely made me more aware of my dreams and I will be paying closer attention, as I have always been someone with very vivid dreams.
Thank you to Chosen Publishers for a copy of the book in exchange for my honest review.
