Meanings and Interpretations of Dreams About Heaven

Updated on April 18, 2016

Dreaming Of Heaven

Although dreams about heaven are not common, they can still be very meaningful to the men and women that have them. There are a variety of different scenarios that one can have in their dreams about heaven. Dreaming about heaven can represent several different meanings that point back to our waking life. In this article, we will discuss heaven dreams and heaven dream scenarios. We will also review what your dream about heaven may suggest in your waking life. In the end, we hope that you are able to better understand your heaven dream and what it may represent to you and your waking life.

If you are spiritual, you have a better chance of dreaming about heaven, more of a chance then someone that is not spiritual. If you are spiritual, you are already familiar with what heaven portrays and represents to an extent. Heaven commonly represents paradise. It is said that those who enter the kingdom of heaven will live for eternity. While in the kingdom of heaven, you will never feel or experience pain. If you are spiritual, your mind is in tune to heaven and you are well aware of it. Due to this, you would be likely to have at least one dream of heaven.


In most cases, dreaming about heaven represents positive emotions in our waking life. Dreaming about heaven may suggest emotions of laughter, joy, and happiness. Dreaming about heaven can represent that you are extremely happy with your waking life. Your heaven dream may be brought on by a successful life that you are proud of. It may also point to a specific situation or circumstance that has turned out to be great. It may be a great job, great relationship, or a great spiritual connection.

Dreaming about heaven can also suggest achievements in your waking life. These achievements have a positive effect on your emotional state of mind. Your heaven dream may represent feelings of confidence and pride. Your self-esteem may be at an all time high. These types of dreams may also symbolize that you are in total control of your emotions. You know how to control you emotions in a healthy way.

Heaven dreams can also represent future success and fortune. This is not to say that you will be rich in the near future. Instead, this represents that you will have future success in your waking life. Once again, this may relate to a job, friendship, relationship, or some other circumstance. Dreaming about heaven may refer to the possibilities of opportunity in your future as well.

Dreaming about heaven can symbolize a new start in life or new beginnings in your waking life. Heaven can be a symbol of renewal and regeneration. This can point to several different things in someone's waking life. You may be tired of your current course and feel like change is needed. Sometimes it is just best to start over with a fresh start. Your heaven dream may be suggesting that you are starting a new chapter in your life. Possibly, it may denote the phrase, "out with the old and in with the new."


If you had a dream about heaven, this may be a spiritual sign that you need to change your current lifestyle. Some men and women believe that this may be a sign from the higher power. You may not be proud of who you are and you may feel ashamed for the things that you have done. We all make mistakes for no one is perfect. The important thing to remember is to learn from those mistakes so you don't make them again. Maybe God is giving you a sign, who knows? Dreaming about heaven may also suggest that you have lost your spiritual connection or that department has been lacking recently. You may have experienced a loss or second guessing your spirituality and faith. Dream experts believe that this type of dream may be used as motivation to find our once lost spirituality.

If you are in heaven and you see loved ones that you have lost, this can represent your emotional need to feel that connection again. This is not an uncommon dream. We all lose loved ones at some point in life. In many cases, their death may be sudden. This type of heaven dream can be brought on by our subconscious. We may have left words unspoken or we may have said things that we didn't mean. We may have not seen them for years. These heaven dreams are very meaningful to the dreamer. In some cases, we may finally get to say what we have wanted too for years. If so, this can bring such joy to our life.

      I dreamed of a narrow grassy path that was actually a bridge. it was dim and grey woods on my side. The path was made of stone and grass, perhaps moss. at the other end was an extremely colorful gate with many symbols. i was high in the air. it was at the top of the mountain, the bridge had nothing but air under it.Then in another dream i was in the forest heading somewhere. I came to a bridge. My mother was there staring down into the water. When i saw her i ran to her and we simply hugged. I remember feeling home. My mother is gone, she has been since i was eight. It's the only positive dream i have ever had about her. All the others are her dying all over again.

      I had a dream in which I was in my bed. It was first person and not like a movie, third person. And all of a sudden, the roof just opened and I saw Jesus walking down a staircase. I have also had dreams where there were tornadoes -always tornadoes for some reason- and I prayed for it to go away and it did. But I don't know what those mean and they are weird.

      i see all of my dreams like a movie/tv show , so i watch everything even if it's happening to me and i just cut to the next "scene" sooo i had a dream that my brother and sister killed me with a knife, and posted about it saying stuff like "thank god she's gone". anyway the next "scene" was my funeral where there was a closed casket cause no one ever looked at my body for some reason. everyone was sad and crying except for my brother and sister who were just posting videos on snapchat laughing about it. then it cut to the next "scene" where i was in heaven, suddenly my nana walked up to me(she died 2 years before) she looked at me and smiled then pointed her finger down and said "not yet" in the sweetest voice. then i was spiraling back down to earth and ended up standing in the middle of my parents room. i had my phone in my hand and woke them up. they were happy to see me, but not like you would be if ur dead daughter just came back to life. i then showed them their snapchat stories, they were mortified but said "it's too late we'll talk ab this in the morning, go to sleep" i went into the room that i shared with my sister. WHAT DOES IT MEAN. i have another dream that scared th life out of me but that's for another day

      I had two dreams. One I fell off a huge cliff alot of people were on and I died. I remember flying up somewhere. But I felt really happy when I woke up. And take note my dad doesn't take me to church as often so I don't know much. The second being: I also died and I could still see my family and turned into a human for a little then it ended. What do these mean if you know. Also a few days or weeks after that I felt like I wanted to learn more and get close with god. I wanted to know him better so I can form a better relationship. I just started reading online bibles and hope to go to a church more.

      All I saw in my dream was really the gates of heaven opened. And so I'm going to describe it... I was flying through a dark hole and I first saw red light so I think that was hell and I passed over it and then I saw a huge bright yellow light and it was heaven and I don't really remember the rest.

      I had a dream of heaven...

      I was at grandmas house looking through the window in our room. I closed the blinds put my head against the window took it off and opened the window again. when I did I saw the greenest grass that shined and blew with the wind like waves. I ran out side I felt the perfect weather on my skin and I saw a creek or a pond and other people where playing inside of it, laughing, floating on a doughnut inner tube. every body was just so happy.... I wanted to go and have fun with everyone but all I did was stare like a movie. it was the only thing I could do. There was also a beautiful forest up ahead With the greenest leaves you ever saw. not as much grass was under those trees but you could see the life in it with harmless animals. I looked at the blue sky's with small puffy clouds it was so perfect I wanted to stay there forever...but I walked back inside. it wasn't my choice but I just did it. I closed the blinds and I woke up

      I was 12 years old when I had this dream. I dreamed that I was standing on a white clouds I didn't know why I was on the clouds but while I was standing I realized that the clouds were moving or rather traveling really fast then when the clouds reached its destination I saw myself lying in the living room I saw my mother and sister crying while holding my body and I realized that I was dead! I cried heavily. While I was crying I felt that there was someone walking towards me behind my back and realized that it was God! I was too ashamed to face Him because of my sins so and I felt that I have no right to see His face so I hugged Him immediately(in order to cover my face) and cry. While I was crying and hugging Him I suddenly felt calm and safe and after a few minutes I woke up.

      I had a dream where i died but instead of going to heaven and stuff you just respawn and remain in the world. It's like your still on earth and you have the same thing you have but you know you're dead and you can see the ones whos dead is normal and is doing what the live people are doing. I had this crazy dream yesterday and idk if this is what is like to die.

      I dreamed that I heard my dead father voice. I followed, I thought Im at home but i wasnt. Went outside and I saw my father lies on the grass and enjoying the sunshine. Then a lady come and talked to me, that I should go back, I said I would like to know what is this place, i knew my father died before, so I asked if this is a heaven. It was so peacfully and looked like earth I live but I seen different view too, it was made by material which always grow and keep changing around me, and this material make me forget what i seen or heard. The last thing i remember that the lady was gone but came a man, i knew he was a guardian, so asked me not to think too much about this place, said its not my business now. Then I woke up.

      I had a dream about Heaven a few nights ago. I don't remember everything exactly. I just remember watching my son (we are both still alive) play in the street. I know this may sound weird, but this was Heaven. Everything that's here on Earth is there in Heaven. But it's more positive and loving, and I could feel all of the love. No stress, no hate, no negativity- Just love. It's by far the best dream I've had and ever will have. I wish it wasn't so short, but that feeling of love has stayed with me. I'm so speechless and in awe over it. I'm happy I was able to experience dreaming of Heaven. I've always known God was watching over me and everyone, but this was truly a different feeling.

      So last night I had a dream I died. I dont know how I died I just knew I was dead. I was on a doc by a lake looking at a full moon it was a foggy night. Next thing I knew I was in a room and people were arguing around me and someone asked. Are you sure and after a few seconds gave me a piece of paper said to read it and I woke up. I dont remember what was on the piece of paper. Any suggestions what this dream means?

      Last night l had a wonderful dream. I don't know if it was in heaven or not, but l felt myself floating upward as l sung worshipful hymns to God. Then as l was singing praises to God...the Lord spoke to me. I could look around and see that l was in a building. The building was an illuminating white-grayish color with beams of light shining through the windows. I remember seeing light blue sky...the same color of the sky we would see on a beautiful spring day. I cant remember the conversation l had with God...nor did l see him...l just heard his voice...and the only words l can recall was the words " my grace." Tears filled my eyes...and l wept in my sleep state. I had joy and then l came down from the top of the building were l had ascended to in worship to God. I went back down to the floor and to the enterance of this towering illuminating building. I then walked out from the building. I could see pillers or columns station in front of the enterance and people vagely and almost unnoticed walking around or in and out of this building. Outside l meant my two youngest children who needed me to get their clothes or something like that...cant really remember details here but that we then together entered into another building more like a wooden cabin. The feeling l sense as l walked through this building was..."it would be a great place to lodge visiting and traveling preachers." Intereating dream.

      Had a dream that i was in heaven and could barely remember what it was like. I felt warmness a love so profound it took another level beyond love. Of course theres the difference of love and true love but this feeling was a next step. Something you have to experience for yourself, the feeling can be explained but words arent enough to explain. The air felt like love hugging me. As if it was apart of me, going through and inside me. What i saw was a bunch of golden white clouds mostly gold like. I didnt feel pain, i felt accepted. Then by the time i was starting to wake up i saw a figure, i think someone in a white robe. Came to me, almost out of nowhere is the best i can describe it. Think that person was trying to send me back. The body and face were blurry as i was pushed back down to earth. I did not want to wake up, to be honest, i wanted to die right there. I didnt want to wake up. It was a dream like no other. I cant remeber anything more than that. If i saw angels, or the perly gates. But my guess it was jesus.

      I am a 15 year old young lady (I will be 16 soon) . I keep having dreams on Heaven , I've had about 3-5 dreams now that I have went to Heaven . Each were presented differently . Only one time have I been inside of Heaven in a dream , the other times I was eaither at a door , or having to fload up to Heaven (then I woke up) . Now what makes the dream of me floating up to Heaven was that when I was on my way up I had to consciously float upward towards the bright clouds by the power of believe I would make it , then I noticed several Angles all around me . As I was approaching I did not have energy left to consciously keep going no matter how hard I wanted to keep going , then I fell back down to Earth .

      I used to go to a Mormon Church on a regular basis till tomes got hard then I haven't had a ride to church since it's a city over. I am also always thinking about what Heaven looks like and doing the right things to go to Heaven when I die .

      My dream a few days ago I was at Heavens door but I kept yelling for my grandmother to come to go into Heaven with me . So did I passaway before her ? I woke up for no reason so I didn't see if she came or not .

      My perfectly healthy 87 year old Mother died 22 days ago. I had taken care of her for 5 years as she had dementia. Was the most tender, beautiful joyful person that I knew even still. Last night I dreamed she stepped right outside heaven for a few seconds and graced me one more time with her glorious smile. She let me know that she was so wondrously happy and at peace at last with my daddy. I will be forever grateful to God that He favored me with this assurance and filled me with such peace and joy.

      I had the best dream ever and it was about being in heaven with my son. I am not a religious person so when I woke up in the morning I was stunned about what I saw and how I felt, it was amazing. I remember standing on my own in a pure white field that went on for miles and miles. The air was warm and I felt an overwhelming feeling of love around me. My son appeared and as he walked towards me, a huge light was shining behind him in the distance. As he got closer he smiled and as he did the light shone through his smile and beams of light came through his face!. I then could feel a presence in the back ground and in my dream I was constantly wondering who was in the distance? However when I woke up I knew it was God!. Never had a dream like this before and I've been craving for another one since!
