Dream of Eagle and Lobster
While sitting in some type of auto repair shop, and talking to a conservationist activist, I basically challenged him to prove his position to me. Then he left the building, only to return with a small white bowl which had two miniature creatures in it: a white eagle and a lobster. And above me, near the ceiling were a row of two foot high screens on which he played a conservation documentary. Then he moved the container right in front of my lips, so I shut my eyes tightly in order to avoid injury. I could feel the creatures grabbing my lips and pecking at my eyes, but I did not turn away. And the dream ended before I had a chance to open my eyes. While below is the work of understanding what the dream means:
The mostly-white eagle probably symbolizes prophecy, just as it is a creature which soars very high above the ground—higher than all other birds. And since it was grabbing my lips and pecking at my eyes, this might symbolize both the seer anointing and the prophetic gift of hearing the word of God. So the white bowl might symbolize being fed the word of God via both visions and spoken word.
The lobster, on the other hand, tends to remain below sea level, while its migration is basically coastal. And since the ocean can symbolize the word of God, the waves lapping against the sandy beaches can symbolize God speaking. In addition to that, lobsters are blind. And a female can lay 10,000 eggs in one nest.
After Waking Up
After waking up in bed, and returning to consciousness in the real world, I realized that an audio book of Romans was playing in my headphones, then I heard verses which related the senses of seeing and speaking. So I looked up verses that might relate to the dream described in the first paragraph.
For in this hope we were saved. Now hope that is seen is not hope. For who hopes for what he sees? But if we hope for what we do not see, we wait for it with patience.—Romans 8:24-25 ESV
...for that which has not been told them they see,
and that which they have not heard they understand.
—Isaiah 52:15c-d ESV
