They said to one another, “Here comes that dreamer!” Gen. 37:19 (HCSB)
I was honored to have Bonnie Manning (aka Tekoa Manning) join me this month to discuss the importance of dreams. We discussed what the Bible says about dreams (especially those of Joseph, the “Master of Dreams”), common dream symbols, why your dreams matter, and more!
Listen to the podcast
Kislev is the dubbed “The Month of Dreams,” as nine of the ten dreams recorded in the Torah are read during this month. As the ninth month, it and dreams are “pregnant” with meaning. (See this article for a look at the spiritual aspects of nine, or this one for numbers in general.)
Sweet Dreams! And may your ninth month be blessed!
A Blessing For Dreams (Hatavat Chalom)
King of the Universe, I am Yours and my dreams are Yours. I have dreamt a dream and I do not know what it is. Whether I have dreamt about myself, or my companions have dreamt about me, or I have dreamt about others, if they are good dreams, confirm them and reinforce them like the dreams of Joseph, and if they require a remedy, heal them, as the waters of Marah were healed by Moses, and as Miriam was healed of her leprosy and Hezekiah of his sickness, and the waters of Jericho by Elisha. As you have changed the curse of the wicked Balaam into a blessing, so too, change all my dreams into something good for me.
Mighty One on high, abiding in power, You are peace and Your name is Peace. May it be Your will to bestow peace on us.
