The Warmth

In my dream, I had awaken from a long, deep sleep. I was in a very small, yet warm and cozy, cabin. It was in the middle of nowhere it seemed, in a hilly/mountainous region. But this place was familiar. This used to be my Dad’s cabin. The TV was still on. How it got power in the middle of nowhere is beyond me. Lying next to me is my Beckie. I had a feeling of not wanting to get up and move. I wanted to stay in this warm place longer. The feeling you get when you wake up under a warm layer of covers after a deep, regenerating sleep, and you know that it’s freezing cold outside. I’m transported to another area. Except this place had the same warmth as where we woke up. Stepping stones led from the cabin, down to a circular stone courtyard. In the center of the courtyard was a statue. It was female and was an angel. She was holding something high in the air. This item she held possessed its own white glow. Free from any power source. The glow seemed soft, dimmed and unnatural, but beautiful and warm nonetheless. Behind me was an unordinary sight. There was a steep ravine. At the bottom, a deep river. On the other side, people were having fun, jumping off the ravine into the water below.

That’s all I remember. But the thing I remember the most when I actually woke from the dream was the overwhelming warm, comfortable feeling. Usually there is a reason for such a feeling, but this feeling seemed self-existent. It gave me a longing to experience that again and a hope for a better day. This life can be so traumatizing and painful that one day we’ll look back on it and never again think of committing the selfish, destructive things we once did. Those terrible memories will serve a better purpose, to give us contrast. Like lying down in a warm bed after being out in the unforgiving cold all day. They will only strengthen the warm comfortable feeling we will experience forever.


Cabin: To dream of a cabin indicates that you succeed via your own means. It suggests that you are self-reliant and independent, yet still remain humble. You prefer the simpler things in life.

Mountains: To see mountains in your dream, signifies many major obstacles and challenges that you have to overcome. If you are on top of the mountain, then it signifies that you have achieved and realized your goals. Alternatively, mountains denotes a higher realm of consciousness, knowledge, and spiritual truth.
Girlfriend: To see your girlfriend in your dream, represents your waking relationship with her and how you feel about her.
Glow: To see a glow in your dream, symbolizes enlightenment and that a new light has been shed onto a situation. You have gained a fresh perspective and reached a welcomed understanding.
Cliff: To dream that you are standing at the edge of a cliff, indicates that you have arrived to an increased level of understanding, new awareness, and a fresh point of view. You have reached a critical point in your life and may fear losing control.
Warmth: To feel warmth in your dream, signifies contentment and satisfaction in your accomplishments. It also symbolizes hope and unconditional love.


So many symbols in this dream make it harder to interpret. They all seem to compliment each other though, so it makes it easier. I think that despite how hard I am on myself sometimes, I need to be thankful and proud of my accomplishments. More importantly, I am very happy and content that I've been with my girlfriend for so long. I enjoy simply being with her even if we're not doing anything. Perhaps the longing for that warm feeling I got in the dream is the longing to be with her.

Regarding the female angel in the couryard holding up the white glow. Read Revelation 12. Here the woman is dipicted as God's church and giving birth to a "man-child" who is Jesus. There is great conflict between her, the man-child, and the great red dragon (Satan). The woman and man-child are victorious in the end. Also, see Revelation 14:6-9. There are three angels proclaiming a message each. Pay special attention to the first angel's message. It is a call for mankind to prepare for judgement and worship the creator God. Maybe your woman holding the glow is the church (God's believers) proclaiming light (truth) to prepare the earth for the day of the Lord. By you taking a path and seeing this female angel, you may be called to come out of the warmth and comfort to participate in this proclimation. Just a thought.
