What are possible meanings for dreams of heaven?
If heaven is a dream setting, it might be a way of symbolizing being in a good place in your life. You are at peace. You feel joy, connection, love.
Dreaming about heaven can come in response to wondering what it’s like, especially after hearing descriptions of heaven, seeing depictions of it, or sorting through your beliefs. Is it a real place, or metaphorical? Do only good people go there, or only people who practice a certain religion? Dreams can respond to these sorts of questions, but remember that the answers received are likely to be subjective, not objective.
Powerful and vivid depictions of heaven in dreams run the gamut from typical “angels on clouds” and “bearded wise man running the show,” to a black void of absolute peace. These are subjective viewpoints. That, or heaven is whatever you believe it to be. Considering what we are learning from quantum physics about reality being whatever you make of it, it’s entirely possible that objectively a place like heaven (presuming it exists) has myriad manifestations.
Dreams where heaven is referred to and not depicted can relate to a place you’re trying to get to in your life. Perhaps you have a goal in mind that sounds like heaven to you, such as retiring to a tropical island. Dreams use analogies to create symbolism, and heaven to you can be something like buying a house on a lake, or sending your kids off to college.
Oftentimes, personal notions of heaven are related to romantic love. You will find your personal heaven when you find the love of your life. For people who are lonely and isolated, their version of heaven can simply be close connection with another human being.
Along this line, heaven in a dream can be an expression of a wish. For example, a loved one dies and you dream about the person in heaven. It’s a wish that the person is in a good place in the afterlife. Or it can symbolize being at peace with the death of that person. See: Afterlife, Seeing a dead relative
How does heaven symbolize something from your thoughts or feelings? Is it used to describe a situation? Is it something you think about or long for? Is it used as a setting to help tell the dream-story? Remember, a dream setting sets the stage to tell a story using symbolism, and the symbolism is based on your associations.
What are the first words that come to mind in relation to heaven? Peace, contentment, harmony, afterlife, God, eternity, mystery, love, light, soul. These are common associations with heaven that can be used to symbolize what’s going on inside you, in your life, as an observation about a person, or to identify the subject of a story.

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 ....

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.

Any dream interpreters?
Last night I had a dream, it was a long dream but im gonna cut it short. Anyways, in the dream I had a girlfriend, but the girlfriend was my ex. She was still my girlfriend in the dream, but skip through all the mess to cut it short, we broke up AGAIN in my dream because I found out she has a male genital? (this isnt the case of why we broke up in real life.) But then something weird happened my dream skipped time to where I was talking to her friend and I asked her "So she was a man this whole time?" So then her friend answered, "No shes a god" And what I took from that part is, shes a god and she can take a human form but when shes in just her god form she has the male genital? But thats the reason I broke up with her in the dream, because she had the male genital, and I was so mad about it that I travelled to some kind of demom realm where I stayed, Skip forward time, I made some kind of demon friend, but I decided to return to the heaven realm but when I tried "satan" im guessing, said "I never said you can go" but then he said ha, im joking, So then as I was walking through the portal I told him "say bye to boeboe", which was my dream demom friend thing, So I went through the portal and then I woke up with a bad headache.

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.

Weird dream about god...
I don't know if i should call this a nightmare or a sign of something bigger... Last night I dreamt me and my mother were in an abandoned dark with little to no lights place.Something was hunting us and we were terrified and kept running, everything was becoming scarier until suddenly I saw my dead Grandma behind a door waiting for us,she welcomed us in...but something was off,she seemed like one of them,like the ones that were hunting us,she was very aggressive...it felt like hell.Until we sat down in a couch and suddenly we felt comfort,love and peace around her while light was slowly forming around her,it was like something had taken over her before we had sat down.Anyways,we took that opportunity and since she had died a long time ago we asked if god was real.She then looked at me,smiled and said yes.Then i asked what heaven was like but she just lost that light and i woke up.Holy shit...
