Found this dream onÂ Adam’s blog:
“I had a dream that a massive swarm of grasshoppers or locusts had been spotted, and that people were warned to take refuge in their houses. I did so, and somehow developed the idea that I urgently needed to turn off the HVAC system to keep them from entering that way. At that point I woke up.”
Locusts were a plague of egypt, and can be a symbol of God’s judgment, or merely an indicator of trouble, possibly in your business, as a carryover from times when most of us were farmers, or, it could also mean trouble in any religious endeavors whereÂ locustsÂ would destroy the “crops”Â you’re trying toÂ “harvest.”Â
House is typically a symbol of your own body or person, but here it may mean a house of worship, or other place you would go inÂ real lifeÂ toÂ take refuge from trouble.
The air conditionerÂ most likelyÂ represents an opening in your personal life that is letting in the plague, which can also mean hypocrisyÂ according to one dictionary. To give an exact interpretation, I would need to know what’s going on in this person’s daily or spiritual life, what they associate air conditioning with, if it has any corrrelaries to bodily systems in their minds (in which case it could warn of a physical ailment that needs urgent attention rather than spiritual)
In short, though, the dream is sayingÂ theÂ climate control system of either your physical body,Â orÂ the place (literal or symbolically)Â you’ve taken refuge in yourÂ waking life (very possibly yourself),Â will let inÂ the plague, which could be a respiratory virus,Â or similar threat to your work or spiritual life.
As the air system of a building usually corresponds to the respiratory system, and sinceÂ turning off your respiratory system would kill you, the dream may be saying the only way to survive the plague (whichÂ would represent sin inÂ this interpretation)Â is to die to yourself, which meansÂ placingÂ God in charge of your life, a key stepÂ inÂ acceptingÂ His saving grace. As in the dream, the worldÂ often tells us to take refuge in ourselves, butÂ as the dream indicates, only dying to ourselves and taking refuge in God can save us.
