There is a profound relationship between a career or occupation in your dream life. You cannot dream of objects or things that are not related to the environment. God reveals to you dream symbols that are already familiar to you either spiritually or physically.
It must be something you can relate to. for example, if you’re a farmer it is very rare to dream of symbols related to architecture unless it is something you desire.
How do your dreams relate to your career?
Your dreams are most often drawn from the environment, from simple to complex dream symbols that are relevant to your occupation. Most of the biblical prophecies deployed this approach. Hence making the Prophecy or dream more relevant to its audience.
The forefathers of Israel were pastoral and eventually became farmers. If you are keen when reading the Bible prophecy, you will realize that much of the content relates to farming since this was their occupation as a society. Different Farm tools and crops were mentioned in the Prophecy, each with its spiritual and physical implications.
Another instance is when the prophet uses the imagery of a pot and a bottle, this made more sense to these people as they understood pottery. Hence, could relate it to the prophecy or dream. ( Isaiah 45:9 Isaiah 64:8).
But the pot he was shaping from the clay was marred in his hands; so the potter formed it into another pot, shaping it as seemed best to him. Then the word of the Lord came to me. He said, “Can I not do with you, Israel, as this potter does?” declares the Lord. “Like clay in the hand of the potter, so are you in my hand, Israel.
How your career affects dream symbolism.
To a fisherman, fish symbolize his economy or business. Hence the death of the fish in his dream represents a threat and attack on the business. Likewise, to a farmer wheat also represents his business, as farming is the source of income for his family. Hence, dreaming of wheat or any other cash crop reflects or relates to his business/ occupation.
Another example is that of the pharaoh’s butler, Joseph’s inmate in prison. He dreamed of pressing grapes into Pharaoh’s cup and he then served him wine. Joseph’s interpretation was that the butler would be restored to his office. A butler is a male servant in charge of wines. It is clear how his dream related to his occupation.
If your occupation is fishing then, most of your dreams will involve symbols of different types of fish, boats, water bodies, and every instrument in this field. The fishermen know the edible and poisonous fish and their dream implication becomes more relevant as they can easily relate to these things.
