Nigerian ranks number 91 on the world spirituality index and in our rich diverse cultural heritage, there are certain meanings given to dreams from our elders, spiritual heads or sometimes parents. Personally, i dream a lot and i always try to find the meaning behind my dreams from my spiritual mentor, mum or anyone that i know is more knowledgeable than i am in this aspect.
Most times interpretations of dreams are done using colors, places, fruits, numbers, actions,dressing, plants and even the weather, it sounds crazy right? Some parents try to teach their children their perspective of dreams based off on how the said knowledge was passed down to them by their own parents, others learn interpretation of dreams from books and sermons, some learn form conversations and hearsay, while the rest just talk for the feel of "make e be say i tok". The key thing is, among the given interpretations there are some that are widely accepted by Society.
These days the average Nigerian youth just wants to dream about money and American or Canadian visa or the latest Benz "#Godnogoshameus" gang, as much as i'm a partaker of the mentioned gang as hilarious as that sounds, i find it important to know what dreams signifies. Based off on the most generally accepted interpretations in the country, i'll be focusing on just four parts in today's article. Whenever you dream of color, fruits, numbers and weather below is a quick interpretation of what it is;
RED: means danger, blood. also witchcraft, life.
BLUE: holy spirit, peace, calm, wisdom, depression.
GREEN: fruitfulness, growth, presence of life,envy.
WHITE: purity, also holy spirit,presence of God.
