DREAM POOL RUNNER-UP #5
In this post, we look at the brief dream context of an element request recently submitted by Scully from Cincinnati, Ohio.
What is the meaning of diapers in dreams?
I was fighting a high-level enemy (easy to defeat, but time consuming), and I knew that “teachers” expected me to be out of diapers by the time I fought it.
But I had put on the diaper right before I fought it (I had wanted to).
THE MEANING OF DIAPERS
Diapers have several meanings depending on the dream context
• Diapers can speak of CHILDISHNESS. I once had a dream about my son wearing a diaper in a parking lot when he was a teenager. God was telling me he was far from ready for the activity I hoped to send him to.
If you are wearing the diaper, this may not be speaking of your own childishness. The Lord tends to be a bit more tactful than sending such an extreme illustration.
If you dream, however, of someone else wearing a diaper– someone you know is behaving childishly– the Lord may be telling you to ignore that behavior and not take it personally… along with leading you to pray for the person.
• Diapers can speak of REMOVAL. Your dream, for instance (where you were to wear a diaper for combat) may prophesy that there will be “crap” you will have to deal with in this situation.
• MANY DIAPERS speak of removal of a great number of things that don’t belong.
Your dream indicated you were expected to be out of diapers before fighting this enemy. That dream element confirms that this battle was time consuming.
• CHANGING DIAPERS FULL OF URINE speak of the removal of more benign things.
For instance, as a photographer, one might delete a number of less-desirable pictures, or as a writer, one might do a good deal of editing.
I know that I’ve had dozens of dreams depicting me changing the diapers of babies.
Diapers of all kinds… completely soaked, overflowing with baby poop, and so on. Last week, I dreamed 2 babies needed changing, and it was so bad that I had to put them in the tub! These dreams are pretty common.
• Diapers can speak of SURPRISE… as in needing a diaper for your extreme shock when what’s coming manifests!
We sometimes forget about our Heavenly Father’s sense of humor… or we don’t understand it in the first place.
I’ve had hundreds of dreams that challenged my concept of God’s sense of humor! It’s amazing to me that He is both to be bowed to in reverence and laughed with in fun.
Here’s my take:
This dream confirms that in real life you are fighting an enemy.
You know how to defeat this enemy, therefore fighting this war is not hard for you in terms of understanding how to be victorious.
But God is letting you know that although this fight is not strategically challenging for you, it will be draining.
Time after time, you will be called to change or remove something— like overcoming anger or repairing damage caused by the assaults.
Know that eventually, when the war is the most heated, you are near the final battle and victory.
Let this encourage you… because by that time, you may be very weary. At that point, the enemy may use a new or more intense tactic against you.
Allow the Holy Spirit to strengthen you as you keep up the fight to the victorious end.
