BS Recap - Dreams and Visions

Last night Jason bravely led us through Daniel 7 which marks the end of the fun "story telling" and starts in on the apoclyptic dreams Daniel had during his life. It all is getting very revelationsesque like with winged beasts, monsters and talking horns etc. Seriously, I had no idea how we were going to have a discussion about this chapter, it was so weird, but Jason did his homework and led us through unscathed. So this is what I'm thinking: In the bible dream interpretation was a very common way for God to communicate with people. Do our dreams still have meanings greater than just working out the events of our day? Or is God talking to us? How would we know the difference? In Daniel 7, Daniel asks a saint for an interpretation while he is still in the dream. It's kind of cool, he asks all the questions I would, like "What the heck does this all mean?" A couple of years ago we were studying signs in bs and decided to start asking for them, the results were a bit alarming. Should we start asking for interpretations to our dreams? Will we start receiving them whether we ask or not? Anybody have any opinions about dream interpretation? I only know one person who knows how to interpret dreams. We have about five more chapters of Daniels dreams left so I guess we'll see where it goes.
