Both dreams occurred while I was serving a mission for the LDS church. In the first dream, I found myself settled down next to a large building which looked like a temple. There was nothing remarkable about the place at this point, though I looked around with a lot of curiosity, wondering if I could see any angels or other interesting heavenly beings. (I had not been told by anyone that this was heaven, but I felt it instinctively). There was a time lapse, as is common in dreams, and I found myself in a room inside that temple with a few friends from my childhood. We were engaged in activities that I knew would be frowned upon in heaven. Though we were already in heaven, we didn't dare leave the room for fear of the condescension or punishment that might be inflicted we leave our room. But soon I realized I would be stuck in that small room forever, and whatever it was we were doing was making me somewhat miserable and I wanted out. I overcame my fear and left the room, though my friends did not come with me. I immediately felt a sense of wonder and peace, and there was no condescension or discipline at all from the beings outside the room. It was merely my own fear and previous unwillingness to follow the rules that had kept me trapped in that little room.
I soon found a woman cooking sausages in a small kitchen. I knew instantly this was my Heavenly Mother (for those of you unfamiliar with LDS teachings, we believe God the Father has an actual body, he is a different personage than the Son, and it is generally accepted that he is married, and we refer to his wife as Heavenly Mother, though she is seldom referred to in doctrinal literature). Anyways she was absolutely the most beautiful person I had ever seen in my life. She wasn't glowing or anything as we often imagine heavenly beings. In fact she looked remarkably human, except her physical perfection far surpassed anyone I'd ever seen. She had dark curly hair and was wearing casual clothing. She had perfect skin and an ageless look-youthful but wise. I can't recall her face clearly now, but during the dream I was amazed at seeing how perfect she looked. She was cooking for a 'small gathering' of 1500 of her and the Father's closest friends. I saw the tables that had been set up and remember thinking how large a setup it seemed, but to her this was really a quiet, intimate gathering of a few close friends. I soon saw God the Father speaking to some people. I wanted to talk to him but he was quite engaged with some other people making preparations for the dinner. Therefore in this dream I only spoke with Heavenly Mother. But I remember how perfect Heavenly Father looked, and that it was nothing like people imagine in pictures and movies. He was clean shaven, and had blond, well-kempt hair. He was extremely muscular-more so than anyone I have ever seen, but not all veiny and gross like some body builders. In fact it was quite a becoming look. He too was an image of perfection, while simultaneously looking more normal and human than I would have thought.
The only other part of this dream that I recall was near the end, where I was talking to Heavenly Mother and a trampoline was pulled out as Heavenly Father liked trampolines. Yes, that seems odd. The importance I felt was that God did in fact have his own individuality and interests. I wanted to talk to him, but he was down below where I was sitting with Heavenly Mother. She told me to fly down there and talk to him, which I was surprised to learn I could do, but then I woke up.
The second dream was a bit shorter but also interesting. I saw Heavenly Father and Heavenly Mother building a small house next to a large castle. The house was a unique design but nothing special. Heavenly Father was cutting 2 X 4's on a pair of sawhorses, and Heavenly Mother was just sitting on a sawhorse and kind of hanging out with him. I was surprised at how perfect God's work was, and that he was doing it by hand. He could saw through the wood in a single thrust and leave no imperfections or marks along the cut. And all his angles were perfect. It amazed me again that here was an all powerful being doing manual labor, but in such a perfect way that it was kind of more amazing than if he had simply commanded the elements to make a house for him. I asked why they were building such a small house when they had that big castle. God had built that castle before, but now it was full of servants and other people and they just wanted a little place for themselves. He said he could in fact simply command the house to be built, but there was some sort of reward of doing it by hand.
Anyways I have no reason to believe that these dreams were accurate indications of God or Heaven, but I do believe in the symbolism that was portrayed. I believe God is a real person like us, but in a perfected state. I believe he is a unique being with his own personality and interests. And I believe he has a wife and family (of which we are part), not merely a bunch of creatures created and designed to worship him, and also that he is not alone, nor would he be God if he were alone.
