“‘And in the last days it shall be, God declares, that I will pour out my Spirit on all flesh, and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams; even on my male servants and female servants in those days I will pour out my Spirit, and they shall prophesy." Acts 2:17-18 -- In order to enter into the dream state, where you can open up the heavens so you can see things prophetically in your dreams, preparation is everything. If the atmosphere around you is not comfortable, you will not be able to relax. Often what you are thinking about before you go to sleep figures into your dreams. If something is bothering you, or something has affected you emotionally, that will play out in your dreams. Tragedy, rejection, hurt or pain will affect your dreams. Your mind will be disturbed by these sorts of things like rocks being thrown into a still pond, producing ever-expanding and overlapping ripples. You will not be able to think with clarity, much less open up the heavens to be able to receive what God has for you.
