Magical Boat Ride Dream

Last night I had a dream that Phil and I were in Europe. We had a 5 or 6 year old son, who I had this feeling about like he was so incredibly precious, pure, and innocent. He was sitting on Phil's shoulders. We got onto a boat in the night time, with the lights shimmering on all the buildings. The man who was collecting money for the boat said that Phil and I could get on for a set price, but we would have to pay per hour for our son being on the boat. Then we floated through the sky on the boatride, and then into deep dark waters. I tried taking photos with my camera at one point, but the camera had gotten wet and wouldn't work anymore. We floated into this long hallway with natural light, and floating fruit (grapes). There was an old woman at the end of the hallway, and I tried to take her picture but she didn't want it taken and my camera wouldn't work.


I got the dream's interpretation from a friend. Here it is:

So, Sarah the dream is about you! You and Phil are on a adventurous journey into the deeper, mysterious things of God. Phil has carried most of the weight of this pursuit so far, but you are (and have been ) transitioning into a time of greater participation in God's supernatural realm. It costs you more to take this path than some other you might choose, but you know that it is a precious gift from God and have decided to go forward. You can already see some fruit from this - new wine! Great dream...sail on!!!

Nightmare with the Blue and Black Snake

Last night I had a nightmare that we had three dogs- two little dogs that I didn't care much for, and Riley. Phil told me something had attacked the dogs when we weren't looking, and he brought the first one in. Half of the dogs body was missing- mangled and bloody. Then he brought the second dog in, less mangled, but still dead. I had a slight bit of hope that Riley was even less hurt still and that we might be able to save her, but when he brought her in I saw that whatever had attacked her had taken a huge chunk of her stomach out. She was dead. I wanted to know what had done this, and then I saw it: a big black snake in our backyard with a vibrant blue pattern on it's back. It was hidden very well but we finally saw it, after the damage was done.

According to the Streams Ministries manual, the black snake represents deception, lies, and it's poisonous (makes sense since it killed the dogs, and in the dream I had a sense that the snake was poisonous). The blue on the snake also represents a spirit of depression. Dogs represent your best friends. The backyard represents things of the past...

I'm putting it all together, and its making sense to me.
