I was in my old house from growing up and I went upstairs to change clothes or something.
I walked in to find the radio playing a familiar song. (Rock song) and suddenly noticed my brother had moved all of his things into my room. Like the wall behind was in black drapes or something.
I was furious.
My room was now his and I asked my mom about it. Very angry with her as well.
My new room (that was his) was shabby and had old fashioned coverings on top of the chair and bed.
I did think to myself that I could deal with it.
I got the impression that she favored him
And I just say I’m done living there. I want a new place. And then she asks me to stay with her at my cousins old house (this is the son of my relatives that took over the old church we used to attend) she said she will be renovating. I say the kids (my children) can stay there but I won’t be.
I didn’t want to hurt her like that.
Next I’m talking to my friend and daughter in the kitchen of some other house and hear something downstairs
I go down and look around and find this brown fuzzy walking stick that makes this noise. It almost looks like a tiny spider monkey crawling up the wall
I call my friend to ask her what it is while trying to keep an eye on it
She said that they carry several eggs and even snake eggs
I lose sight of it.
I want to call an exterminator and I do, but mom doesn’t want to spend that much money on one she says.
Like it’s no big deal. So, this must be a part of her new house?
I know I’m not going to rest until it’s out of there.
But I never find it again
Next Dust and I are back in the mobile home again looking at how the previous renters /people had decorated it. The border was tacky and I started peeling it off
Looking at the wallpaper that I had had before in the top right corner that matched the rest I let it remain.
Trigger; I was thinking about the past and issues at the church and how I handled it? I know mom usually represents the Holy Spirit?

Hi Fully Restored,
Let’s look at the symbols:
Old house from growing up and I went upstairs to change clothes: This speaks of you preparing for life (clothes) and growing and developing spiritually (upstairs). This is just one sentence but it speaks of you moving on in life, in a spiritual sense.
The rock song, the brother moving things, the black curtain, the shabbiness, the old fashioned coverings, speak of a situation in the same house, in fact, a place where you used to be: the house, in the dream, represents God’s kingdom or the global church. God’s kingdom has many rooms, occupied by many people, so the brother represents other Christians in other denominations, which you were part of in the past. You have changed and that is why you do not like the spiritual state of these denominations. You know their songs (rock songs) are not really spiritual, they are spiritually in a mess (shabbiness), they stick to old doctrines of men, and so on.
Radio speaks of congregations depending on external input and influence.
Your mom, the fact that she gave your room to your brother, the fact that you feel she favors your brother: This part speaks of the Holy Spirit, who, like a true mother who loves her children, looking after her children although they are spiritually in a bad state (unconditional love). It also speaks of a bit of you not completely happy that God accommodates such people or congregations.
You were a bit upset about this and you made it clear that you want a new place: This indicates that you wanted to move on to a new house or experience (congregation) as you are not happy with the old one. The old one is not anymore what you can live with. You do not want the bad things that I mentioned above, which is a good thing.
Asks me to stay with her at my cousin’s old house (this is the son of my relatives that took over the old church we used to attend) she said she will be renovating. I say the kids (my children) can stay there but I won’t be: This part indicates that the Holy Spirit still wants you to be part of the old system, probably another old congregation, where you can still develop because He will renovate this place. This speaks of his plan to renew the congregation. You were or are not willing to do so. Your children (really your children or your immediate descendants or your spiritual children). You did not want to do that because you did not want to hurt the Holy Spirit. God actually does understand your point. He agrees that those congregations need “renovating”.
The part of the spider monkey and eggs and snake eggs speaks of a situation at this congregation that is bad. Spider monkeys represent people who are inclined to engage in frivolous, silly, foolish, and superficial behavior. Eggs speak of new life or new birth or replication. So this “depending on crutches or walking stick mentality will only replicate each self and that will lead to demonic temptation (snake eggs)
A walking stick: This represents people who are in bondage. They can not walk on their own in power and authority. If you always have a crutch, you don’t learn anything.
The noise: The walking stick has a voice, it calls for action. It was probably just a sound in your dream but it says, “Depend on me, I will help you”
Fuzzy: Fuzzy may speak of this funny walking stick always slightly changing. never the same.
Kitchen: The fact that you were standing in the kitchen when you heard the walking stick “calls for action”, speaks of the biggest problem that you have with all this, spiritual food or doctrines. This is the thing that causes you to be so upset and why you want to exterminate this thing.
The Holy Spirit not willing to do so speaks of the Holy Spirit probably knowing that He will have to move slowly with these people and these congregations. They will not be willing to or able to tolerate or handle such drastic actions. Not enough faith probably.
The mobile home represents another temporary congregation and it appears that things are not so cozy there either. Better but not yet what you want spiritually.
Yes, I feel that you acted correctly by being unhappy with those situations. It appears that the spiritual status of your past congregations is not acceptable.
This makes me think that your mother in the dream might be your real mother or a close relative who is like a mother to you, who wanted you to stay. The fact that she said that she will renovate the congregation speaks of her being in a position of authority.
This may be an emotional restoration dream. It may be that this whole experience was a bit hard for you and you wondered a lot about whether this was the right move and if you handled it correctly. It appears that you did not stay in the congregation as your mother requested, but, to tell you the truth, based on what you said, I think you took the right decision by moving on.

Thank you. Yes. That seems accurate. The walking stick was a different symbol though than what I described. More like the insect, looked like a fuzzy praying mantis, but I knew it wax was a walking stick.
My friend that I asked about it described its danger.
I then wanted it exterminated.
I had been pondering on going back into these situations because I do in fact love the people. It just seems that they are not receptive of the new truths and insight from the Word.

Hi Fully restored,
Sorry about that, I should have realized you were describing the insect, but you know, in dreams anything is possible. So just ignore the parts of people (congregation) walking with crutches and replace it with the following: Walking sticks are known for their excellent way of camouflaging themselves. So in your dream, the members of the congregations were not always acting as their real thoughts indicated as was revealed in your dream. A walking stick is an insect and it, therefore, symbolizes the thoughts of people. So there was probably a whole lot of pretending and falseness going on in the congregation.

Good job Mandy! You did well with this interpretation!
