Noted dream researcher Robert Van de Castle is collecting dream reports about angels from the public. Angels and other figures composed of light have been making their appearance in Western dreams for several thousand years, yet their dream mythology has scarcely been explored except from a strictly theistic perspective. Van de Castle hopes to change that with his upcoming scholarly book Angels in the Night.
Whether you are a believer or not, it is undeniable that angels have been influential dream figures for millions of people, guiding actions, imparting wisdom, and even playing roles in military campaigns and revolutions. Angels, be them celestial guides or archetypal components of the mind, are a psychological reality.
Van de Castle suggests:
In addition to describing the dream in as much detail as possible and noting when it occurred, it would also be useful if you could comment about any possibly significant emotional events that were going on in your life before the dream and your subsequent reaction to the dream. Have you ever had any other similar dreams?

i have been having dreams of an angel for many years. i am given messages from God through him and he tells me who to take them to. which government. i have passed on many messages to many countries including israel and the U.S. they do not care what God is saying even though each time God has also shown me proof to give them so they would know that these messages are from God. the angel has also shown me the last days. He says they are coming sooner than i think. i have written my dreams in a book even though i am not a writer. my book “hearts of stone” tells of the dreams passed on to the governments and many more. it also tells what the unquenchable fire shall be. we shall see who is truly saved soon enough. blessings.
be well, Kate. I’m curious to know what the government agencies do with your dream reports!
I had an angel dream ten years ago and will never forget it. I have never been religious, or known anything about the history of christianity or even the bible. I had a typical dream. I was off visiting some friends at college and a coworker who wasn’t supposed to be there showed up. There were a lot of people milling around the dorms. I walked into this room with hardwood floors and no furniture. There was one of those old-timey baby strollers with the big wheels parked in front of the door. The infant inside was emitting a golden cast around the cover of the stroller. The infant was my then, baby brother (in reality 9 months old). I started backing away from him and bowed down saying “It’s Gabriel! It’s Gabriel!” He sat up in the stroller, looked at me, put his finger on his lips and said “Shhh! Don’t go behind that door. The devil’s behind that door.” I looked at the door in terror and woke up. The dream continued the following night, I was with my family and we were driving back from the same college. Low enough so that no one else could hear me, I leaned over the car seat and tentatively whispered, “Gabriel?” just to see what would happen. My brother once again put his finger to his lips and said, “shhhhhhh!” and that’s all I remember. I’m still trying to figure that one out.

cool dream! I don’t know much about Gabriel but enough to know that he’s not to be trifled with. the golden light around the stroller… wonderful image. the divinity of newborns a metaphor that is self-evident.

I had a dream that started out very terrifying. I had my oldest son with me and a bronze statue, that looked horrifying to me was one of a child that looked like my oldest son. I ran from it. The statue turned into the most beautiful angel I have ever seen. She chased me into a living room with alot of windows and it was in front of a fireplace. Looked expensive and a house I never have been in or seen. I kept on saying what do you want from me, who are you, what do you want?
I saw the wings and bright light around her. She replied that I thought she said Normat, but her name is Norma. She looked about in her late 30’s or early 40’s. Norma has beautiful golden curly hair a white shirt and I think she had blue jeans on. Norma told me she has been with me since day one. Norma said she knows my likes and dislikes. Most likely a relieving dream do to my son’s heart problems. Norma came when I needed her the most. She looked like a normal person she has blue eyes as well and skinny. I felt at ease with her instantly after she revealed herself to me. I smiled for the first time and was calmed. I want to thank Norma. Plus she had those really huge wings that glittered in the sun. I keep praying to God to protect my sons and don’t really care about myself. Norma said she will always be there for me when I need her.
Ryan Hurd says
Jennifer, thanks for sharing that heart-warming dream. I think it was your courageous attitude in the dream that allowed Norma to transform from a scary statue. Many accounts of angels suggest they have a horrifying as well as a beautiful form.

I had a dream of 4 beings with wings standing behind me in my living room. I was facing the front window and these beings seemed to be pointing at a floating house, a big white house with dark green or black window trim just floating over my house. I then noticed I had beautiful white wings and I could feel the cool wind as they fluttered near my legs. Once I noticed my wings the beings started teaching me how to fly and I was now hovering above my living room floor near the ceiling. The whole time these beings stood behind me I had kept trying to turn around to look at these beings but was not allowed to. How I knew there were 4 I am not sure but this seemed to be imprinted on me. One last thing I could feel these beings were taller than me and I am 5’11.
