Literal or Symbolic?
Kathy — Communication is complete when that information or meaning is received and understood. The Holy Spirit has unlimited ways to communicate with us to be God-aware because there’s communication incoming. For example: Literal means “real with no hidden meanings and nothing to be de-coded”. What you see is what you get. For example, if you dream birds are covering your house and the dream is a literal message, you need to find ways to keep birds off your roof before you have a mess. The dream would be a heads-up for your benefit in future. Symbolic means not real and a detail represents something other than itself. In that case, the birds aren’t really birds but they represent something else in the air or atmosphere or surroundings. Landing on your roof top or your high place would be your head and/or mind. So the message would be to guard your mind and thinking from something in the atmosphere trying to land and have presence or influence in you.
