Spiritual Meaning Of Forgetting Dreams


Prayers Against Forgetting Dreams
Forgetting dreams is rampant, both among Christians and non-Christians. Close to 95% of dreams are forgotten immediately after waking up. Studies show that up to 6.5% of people report to 'never dream'. 

Meaning Of Forgetting Dreams


I understand that forgetting dreams can be a nuisance. Besides, it is not normal to forget dreams. Forgetting dreams is a spiritual problem that everyone who experiences should address and find a solution to. 

One of the primary means God uses to speak to His people is through dreams, and most times, the plots of the enemy are revealed to us through dreams. To forget dreams or to not dream at all is to live in darkness and ignorance of what God is doing, and the plots of the enemy against us. 

Matthew 6:22-23 NIV
The eye is the lamp of the body. If your eyes are healthy, your whole body will be full of light. But if your eyes are unhealthy, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light within you is darkness, how great is that darkness! 

By default, it is not expected of a Christian to be ignorant of the devices of the enemy. So if you are ignorant, then something is not right somewhere. It needs to be fixed. 

2 Corinthians 2:11 KJV
Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices.

Why Do I Forget My Dreams?


There are many reasons why people forget their dreams. The reason is rarely that people do not sleep enough—because some people begin dreaming immediately after they dose off. 
Most times, forgetting dreams is a deliberate spiritual attack from the enemy. If there is anything the enemy could do to make people sleep and wake up without seeing what he's doing against them, then that is to his advantage, he would go extramiles to do it. 


What Does It Mean When You Don't Dream Anymore Spiritually?


There are people who were once dreamers, but along the line, they ended up not being able to recall their dreams. This is often caused by being spiritually weak. In a state of spiritual weakness, dreams can be easily forgotten. Living in sin can send anyone from being very spiritual to being very spiritually weak and numb. When it gets really bad, it often results to such individuals being unable to recall dreams anymore. 


How Can I stop Forgetting My Dreams?


Below are some steps anyone can apply to revive their dreaming ability:

  • Get saved. If you haven't yet welcomed the Lord Jesus into your life as your personal Lord and Saviour, go ahead and pray this salvation prayer
  • Seeing dreams is deeply intertwined with spirituality. Only spiritual people can dream dreams. In order to stop forgetting your dreams, you have to become spiritual. 
  • If you know that you were once spiritual, but along the line, you backslided in your walk with God, start by reviving your relationship with God
  • Sin is darkness, it closes the spiritual eyes and causes people to live in darkness and forget their dreams. Apply scriptural principles to live above sin and live a consecrated life
  • Hate lukewarmness and carnality. 
  • Immerse yourself in a daily communion with Jesus Christ through quality prayers, fasting and studies of the Word. 
  • Be filled with the Holy Spirit.
