Dreaming about Gemstones

Every morning I call my boyfriend and ask him what he dreamed. Most of the time he doesn’t remember, but the dreams he does recall are usually pretty good.

In the last year he’s had a series of the same type of dream. In these particular dreams he is picking up gemstones. Sometimes he’s in a hotel and picking them up off the bed or floor. Sometimes he’s in the back of a pick up truck picking them up and removing the dirt. Sometimes the gemstones are growing and multiplying as he’s picking them up. Sometimes they are all one color and sometimes they’re several colors.

The reoccurring elements however are: he’s picking up gemstones.

In Exodus gems are labeled as stones used for the placement in the ephod and the breastplate for the priests. “The stones were corresponding to the names of the sons of Israel; they were twelve, corresponding to their names, engraved with the engravings of a signet, each with its name for the twelve tribes.” Ex. 39:14

In 1 Kings, Solomon ordered costly stones to build the tabernacle.
‘Then the king commanded, and they quarried great stones, costly stones, to lay the foundation of the house with cut stones.” 1 Kings 5:17

In 1 Kings 10:10 “The Queen of Sheba brought precious stones to King Solomon. She gave the king a hundred and twenty talents of gold, and a very great amount of spices and precious stones.”

Zech. 9:16 “And the LORD their God will save them in that day As the flock of His people; For they are as the stones of a crown, Sparkling in His land. ”

In all these verses, gems hold value. They are precious. They have names. You could also say that people hold value, are precious and each of us has a name.

My flesh would really hope that this dream meant wealth and abundance, or maybe that he was going to find all these gemstones in the natural. (And give them to me!) However, I think the gems in these dreams represent people.
When you ask God, show me your heart and let me be a part of the things you love – it’s only natural that he would show you the treasure inside people. People are His treasured possession.
In reality, my boyfriend works for Teen Challenge. (I describe it as a Christian rehab and discipling center.) So the dreams are fitting for what he is doing, mentoring troubled men and discipling them. He is definitely working with treasures that need some cleaning up.
What about you – Have you ever had a dream about gemstones? What about finding gemstones in the natural? I blogged about this one awhile back. Click here to read that post.

    I had a neat dream a couple nights ago:

    I was at the mall and standing in the middle of an open area was my friend Gregg who was offering heavenly gems to anyone who came to him there in the center of the floor. Mostly he was standing there by himself but if someone did go up to him he would cough up a gemstone into his hand for the person.

    I went up to him and he coughed up a gemstone for me too.

    Then I went into a room and there was a group of people there who considered me to be their teacher. Someone asked me for a gemstone. I didn’t know if I could cough up gemstones but gave it a try and out came a gemstone into my hand. I gave the person the gemstone. I coughed again and even more gemstones came out and beautiful gemstones could be found in the carpet and my hand was full of gemstones and little silver charms (the kind girls attach to bracelets). I started going from person to person in the room to give them a gemstone or charm.

    I came to one woman sitting in the room and pulled a silver Mickey Mouse charm out of my hand for her. As I gave it to her I said, “I hope you like Mickey Mouse.” Then I realized that she was wearing a Mickey Mouse shirt so I realized that this was the perfect charm for her as she obviously does like Mickey Mouse.

    INTERPRETATION:
    My friend Gregg has been practicing giving people messages from God for their encouragement and blessing. As people come across his path, they may be blessed with a message from God — a jewel of heaven coming from Gregg’s mouth.

    I have also been blessed as Gregg has ministered in this way.

    The group of people who considered me to be a teacher probably represent the groups of people I meet with each week to support and encourage by the grace of God. I’m not sure of my own ability to minister but in faith I open my mouth and God gives me the words to say — the treasures of God expressed from my mouth for the blessing of people. I administer these treasures to each person and each person — like the woman wearing the Mickey Mouse shirt — finds the word to be just what they needed to hear and a perfect fit since it was given by God for them and God knows exactly what they need and exactly who they are and exactly how to best bless them.

    May the truths of this dream be played out more and more prominently through all of us.
