What are possible meanings for dreams of angels?
Dreams create symbolism and build stories from personal and common associations, and common associations with angels are that they are good, pure, and righteous. In addition, they come to the rescue of mortals in danger. Imagine the possibilities:
An angel can symbolize a good person you know, someone who comes to the rescue. It can symbolize a desire to live a pure life and have pure thoughts. It can symbolize any force for good that helps people in need and does the right thing.
An angel can symbolize your better nature. In Freudian terms, it can symbolize the superego, the inner regulator of impulses and enforcer of morality and ethics—your conscience.
An angel can be a satirical depiction of someone you know who is self-righteous or holier-than-thou. In which case, something about the angel in your dream will seem wrong.
In scripture, angels are messengers from God, so in dreams they can deliver messages from something deeper, wiser, or higher. These dream characters come from the archetypal layer of the unconscious mind, which is a source of hidden knowledge and insight, like angels. The unconscious mind is the “other side,” sometimes completely foreign and incomprehensible to the conscious mind.
If an angel in your dream delivers a message, take it to heart, no matter what your beliefs are. It can guide you to greater meaning and fulfillment in your life. A message read from a scroll by an angel is a particularly powerful image of delivering an important message.
Three angels together in a dream suggest unity and wholeness, as in the Trinity, body-mind-spirit and birth-life-death. Some traditions view it as a sign of high spiritual attainment. Special groupings of three spiritual figures are found in many cultures and belief systems, not just Christian.
The Angel of Death in a dream can signify that something is coming to an end. See: Grim reapers

Last night's dream about the afterlife.
So I have this weird dream about dying that I would like to share with reddit.
The dream kind of starts off with me being in a bus accident and dying with a bunch of other people Then we were all waiting in this medieval looking room with two doors and large round tables. I was sitting at the top table with these random people and one was a cute gay looking chick. I was like hey do you want to find a back room to make out in? She acted kinda stuck-up like we just died and we are waiting to be judged and that's what you want to do? Then someone peaks out one of the doors and yells "next three for judgment in heaven!" So four of us instantly jumped up. I hate waiting for things and that's why I got up. But after I saw the others I was like y'all go ahead. I dont even want to go in there with a bunch of pretentious christians. And then I go sit at the other table. At this table , one of my friends was there and she was kinda up set about dying. After a short wait, the other door opens and is like "taking one for judgment in hell!" My friend gets up and starts to walk in and I was like girl don't you dare. You are the nicest sweetest person I know. Go sit by the other door and go to heaven as you should. So I take her place and step up for my judgment in hell.
When I go in and this demon is like you have to step into the lava. it will be as hot at as deserve it to be. So I was scared because I thought it was about to be painful and she kind of pushes me in. Then I was like oh this is nice. It was like perfectly warm and it felt really nice. And I just kept sinking into the lava. And while I was there I thought about all of my regrets in life and the people I hurt but the lava didn't get any hotter. Then after a really long time and after I thought that I was just going to stay in hell forever, after I accepted it and thought it was a nice afterlife I got yanked out. The demon said that I wasn't bad enough to be in hell. But my clothes were all burned off and I was naked and I was confused because the lava wasn't hot. But it was because it is lava. it just didnt feel hot to me because I didn't deserve it to be hot.
Then as I was leaving my ex was being brought in and he was in handcuffs. And they threw him into the lava and he turned into a demon. When I looked at the demon that gave my judgment she said that only a few humans live on earth and the rest are demons, Angels or NCPs that guide you throughout your life and that life is just a test. And I looked at my ex and thought about all the girls I saw him hurt in my lifetime and how being in a relationship with him was a test of my faith. And was like... That makes alot of sense. Then he tells me that next time he will make sure I end up in hell because he knows what to do next time and I was like bitch I'm already dead.
So the demon sent my naked self out back to the waiting room and then I was instantly taken into heaven for judgment. While I was there, the angel weighted my heart against a feather and it was the same weight and she was like well... I have to call the big man in. Then God comes in and said that I have to be reincarnated because I didn't pass or fail the test. He said that I need to listen to my conscious more because that's my moral compass and will tell me what's right and wrong. And I will live the same life again with mostly the same choices depending on how many good or bad things I do and if I do things differently. And I said I don't want to be reborn I don't like life and humans and he said because that's be you aren't meant to stay there forever. that it's just a moral test. Then i was like what if I don't really want to be in heaven with the judgmental Christians and the ones that are bad like crusaders who kill in HIS name to spread Christianity! He explained that religion is flexible and that no story on earth is the correct one. That Christianity isn't the original story. That all religions come from somewhere, the truth. That I should trust him that only people who deserve to be in heaven are good people. And so I did and I thought about how I was going to try harder to be a good person this time. And he said that I wouldn't remember any of this after being reborn and then I woke up.
So I have this weird dream about dying that I would like to share with reddit.

Went to heaven and was tested on my deeds
Last night I dreamt that I was approached by a kindly old man whose words were comforting. Next thing I know I am in a jet heading towards a light. I realized the old man was an Angel and I was heading to heaven.
Once there I began to cry because I didn’t want my dad to be alone for the rest of his life. A lady at reception asked if I wanted a hug and when I said yes a bunch of people of varying ages rushed and gave me a big group hug. I felt comfort in their actions and was ready to move on.
Next I had to be tested for goodness, which involved listing my sins, each sin counting against me as a point. I honestly didn’t know how many times I masturbated (and I wasn’t sure if there was a statute of limitations for minor sins) so I listed a random number and let them know of my concerns.
Woke up not too long after. Not sure what to think of the dream.

Dreamt an entire relationship up... with someone I never met.
I googled it, "falling in love with a stranger in a dream", it appears super common. In this dream the woman was everything I could've hoped for and more. She was an angel. Is she real? If so, is this my soulmate? Any help would be appreciated. This dream is really shaking me up.

Here's a long one with layers of meaning to be decoded. It involves murder, if that tickles your fancy.
There is a music festival going on in my front yard. I am with my girlfriend and an ex-friend, who we treat as if she was still our friend. We are walking down the street and decide to go into my neighbor's house and spend the night there. There is only one room open, as if it were a motel. There is nothing in there except a large bed and TV placed in a cabinet. The three of us drop off our bags and go back outside to the festival. It is small, but enjoyable. I spot a group of 20-something year olds under a white tent. They are lounging without a care, surrounded by racks of water balloons. My girlfriend tells me to get a water balloon, so I go up to them. I ask and a woman agrees. She takes one off, then pops it into a large fancy bowl and hands it to me saying, "This is called Dragon Fire Bowl." A guy with her warns her, "Are you sure? Even a drop of that could-" Then he cuts off. The liquid is orange like pop. She encourages me to try some. It tastes amazing! I am addicted to it. I go back to my friends and we retire to the little room. I realized all too late that I finished the drink without sharing.
From here on, the dream cuts like scenes in a movie. It is night. Now I am in my real house watching a concert from my window. It is extravagant, with dancers and bright lights. Suddenly the people who gave me the drink appear in the next room. One of them asks, "Are you feeling ok?"
My dream cuts again. I am back in the small room, but no one is in there. I stand in the corner with blurry vision and a sick feeling. I figure I am just drunk, nothing to worry about. I realize it is really late at night. My brother and a couple of his friends bust in the room, loud, and probably drunk themselves. I mumble something about the drink and Nick is concerned I was poisoned. I assure him it was just pop. They leave and I vomit in my corner.
Next scene, I am still in the same room sitting on the bed with my grandfather. He came to fix the TV. He put on my favorite show, *Supernatural*. We tune in right as an angel is murdering a demon. My grandfather mentions how gruesome the show is. I don't think it's too bad. Suddenly my view becomes more entranced with the show until it is all I see. My view is on the dead demon, who is oozing pink blood from his neck. My sight is like a camera, panning back up to the angel's face. I am the angel. (If you care, the song "Academy Award" by Franz Ferdinand starts playing to set the eerie mood). I can tell I am older than I am in real life, maybe late twenties or early thirties. My hair was cut short and I am wearing nice clothing. With the blade in my hand, I ascend up the stairs. The mansion I am now in was under construction. Sheets hung over a grand window on the stair landing, but a bright white light was breaking through.
I make it to the stop of the long stairway. It is dark here and tinted with a blue filter. I enter a room. A grey pitbull is standing before me, guarding a cradle. The dog growls at me and I realize I am a threat. I move forward without fear and the dog whimpers away. I place my hand on the cradle railing and look down at the baby boy, but from my view I never actually saw the child. I raise my hand with the blade. The dog growls again. I snap my fingers and it rushed out of the room. Before I stab, my side vibrates. It is my phone. I check it and see my girlfriend texted me, "I thought we were going to go to therapy today."
I break from my murderous trance, dropping the blade and holding my spinning head. I realize that was my girlfriend's father downstairs I just killed and that is my son in the cradle. My mind is consumed with darkness, I realize how evil I am. My life is over. How could I do that to my girlfriend?! I seriously think all of this is real. I blink as hard as I can and wake up in a cold sweat.
What does all of that mean? I had this dream a while back, but it has stuck with me as clear as day.
There is a music festival going on in my front yard. I am with my girlfriend and an ex-friend, who we treat as if she was still our friend. We are walking down...

A glimpse of heaven.? Messages from another realm ?
I will being by saying I am suffering from depression and I have many unanswered questions . I’ve been dealing with grief and loss and I’m overall not happy . I’ve contemplated things I’m not proud of . Many times I spoke to God , to heaven , thinking no one was hearing me .
So , I dreamt about seeing people going inside a golden tunnel I knew they were the souls of the departed . This angel grabbed me , I couldn’t see the angel well as he or she was walking behind me but I caught a glimpse of them : tall , golden locks , blue eyes and a blue and reddish / maroon dress , big wings ecc ….the angel spoke to me telepathically . We were walking in this golden place maybe a palace , with Golden Arches and columns … there were many souls there … the angel had a lion right beside them who was following them … it was a docile lion : his fur was shining like stars and you could pet him which I did . The angel spoke to me . He addressed me . He said “you have your life ahead of you . Live it well . I know about your questions . I know many people don’t believe it’s true but there is life after death …” - I’ve been dealing with the loss of a family member -
As we were walking I could see a lot of images on the walls , paintings , the light was beautiful I felt like there was a lot of acceptance . And love . The angel said “I know you have been sad” after that , he brought me to see a sheep . She was an old sheep I know it was the soul of a departed sheep although I could see her as if she was actually made out of flesh and bones . The angel took me to a place that’s hard to describe : it was like the other side of the tunnel it was like a gate and souls were passing right through it to reincarnate , which is what the angel told me. They would descend on transparent stairs . The angel took another sheep and he helped her cross through the gate , as soon as he did that , the sheep became a baby , a lamb . “She’s ready to come back “ said the angel . “Once outside of these gates the souls don’t belong to us anymore , which I know can be scary . The fear of the unknown . But you have to know , as soon as they cross to come back the lord is already there . The lord is already there “ the angel told me to help the sheep cross to become a lamb and come back on earth . As I was doing this , the angel repeated “the Lord is already there “
I woke up crying . It was an amazing experience . My questions were answered . Although I am a believer , I am not someone who is interested in Christian symbols .
Why were there lions and lambs ? I didn’t watch any movie regarding this .
Was that a glimpse of heaven ? My questions were answered .
I will being by saying I am suffering from depression and I have many unanswered questions . I’ve been dealing with grief and loss and I’m overall not happy ....
