Dreams of Bridges and Ladders

A post written May 6, 2008 that I’m now changing to public. I’m currently going through some of my private posts because I seem to be facing a spiritual battle.  Previous dreams and promises often encourage me at times like this. I believe if God speaks to me directly, through a scripture, through dreams or visions, or through someone else, I should make note of it and review from time to time.

This is one of those times. You may be seeing more posts like this. If you aren’t into dream interpretation or personal prophecy, feel free to move right along.  ;-) 

On the other hand, if you have insight you wish to share, I would appreciate it.


Bridges and ladders have been a recurring theme in my dreams lately. I don’t usually attribute much significance to dreams, but this is one of the cases I think I should. I’m seeking the Lord for understanding.

I found this about the symbolism of bridges on http://dreammoods.com/ (they now also have a phone app you can download, which I did. (FYI it isn’t a Christian-oriented resource, so my “filters” are turned on.)

To dream that you are crossing a bridge, signifies an important decision or a critical junction in your life. This decision will prove to be a positive change with prosperity and wealth in the horizon. Bridges represent a transitional period in your life where you will be moving on to a new stage.

To dream that you are climbing up a ladder, suggests that you have reached a new level of achievement and higher awareness. It is indicative of prosperity, hard work and efforts. You may also be looking at things from a different perspective. Alternatively, it may indicate meditation and prayer. You are setting forth on a spiritual path.

The bridges and ladders in my dreams appear sturdy and safe. And I’m heading up the ladder rather than down. That certainly would change the dynamics.

I’m seeking the Lord for understanding.
