Symbolic Visions of Food: Thanks Be To God

God has been giving me a lot of visions of food lately, including cooking, and darn near nonstop thoughts of chocolate chip cookies (for over a week). The latter has had me wanting some warm chewy cookies. All visions given have long fascinated and intrigued me, offering a glimpse into the mysterious realm of my subconscious (and my future). Within the realm of these visions, food often takes on a symbolic significance, representing nourishment, satisfaction, and emotional fulfillment. In this article, I delve into the positive meanings associated with cooking, baked ham, and cottage cheese in dreams, unraveling the hidden messages they may hold.


In one vision I was cooking something in a pot. Cooking in dreams often signifies more than just preparing a meal; it serves as a metaphor for creativity and transformation. The act of cooking symbolizes our ability to shape our life, to take an active role in bringing forth new ideas, and to explore uncharted possibilities. Just as ingredients come together to create a delicious dish, my vision may be urging me to combine different elements of my life in a harmonious and innovative way, leading to personal growth and self-expression. I do know God is near, humanity will never be the same, and I will be playing a role in some way, which I cannot wait!


I was also shown a honey baked ham. Aside from the sweetness of honey, baked ham represents indulgence and celebrations The aroma of a baked ham can instantly transport us to joyous occasions and festive celebrations. In visions, baked ham often represents feelings of abundance and contentment. It may symbolize a time of reward and fulfillment, where the fruits of our labor are savored. This vision can remind me to appreciate the blessings in my life and to relish moments of joy and indulgence. My birth defect (EDS) is a constant reminder to maintain a balance between indulgence and moderation, ensuring that I don't overindulge at the expense of my well-being and overall equilibrium.


Seeing cottage cheese represents simplicity and purity. This wholesome food choice often symbolizes a desire for nourishing experiences and self-care. Just as cottage cheese is considered a healthy and nutritious choice, this vision may be urging me to focus on my own well-being, to continue to nurture my body and mind. It could be a gentle reminder to simplify my life, to find solace in the small joys, and to prioritize self-care amidst the chaos of daily routines. Embracing the simplicity of cottage cheese in this vision may guide me toward a path of balance and grounding, fostering a sense of inner peace and contentment.


Food in visions/dreams carries profound symbolism, offering insights into our emotional well-being, desires, and aspirations. As we explore the positive meanings of these food symbols, let us remember that dream interpretation is a deeply personal journey. Reflecting on our emotions, experiences, and current circumstances can help us uncover the hidden messages our dreams/visions hold, guiding us toward a more fulfilling and meaningful existence. So, the next time you find yourself dreaming (or seeing in your mind's eye) cooking or anything food related, take a moment to savor the rich symbolism they may embody and embrace the wisdom they offer.


I did not include a baked ham in any image simply because I was born a vegetarian, have a pet pig and would much rather have the aroma of chocolate chip cookies. God has been subjecting me to the tantalizing torture of chocolate chip cookie temptation for a few weeks now. Sure I miss the good ol' days of eating them, but I don't want to have to make a healthy batch. I've got enough on my plate, plus I do enjoy some dark chocolate almost every day.

In visions (or dreams), chocolate chip cookies often symbolize comfort, indulgence, and simple pleasures. They can represent feelings of warmth, nostalgia, and joy. Chocolate chip cookies are often associated with happy memories, home, and a sense of security. Dreaming of chocolate chip cookies can be a reminder to take time for yourself, enjoy the little things in life, and savor moments of relaxation and happiness. It's a sweet symbol that signifies finding happiness and contentment in life's simple and delicious pleasures.


I do know a whole lot of happiness, sweetness and good times are ahead for me. So close, I can almost taste it! This long drawn out period of isolation has been painful in many ways. I'm beyond ready to spread my wings and celebrate much.


May you be blessed to have all your dreams come true!
