Hello Lovely People
I was raised in a society and culture where the Bible is often worshipped unintentionally and where organized religion is regarded as the only viable option. To this day I have to count my words when I speak to people I have grown up with about the work I do and my beliefs. Many times I am tolerated because they love me, and I have to tolerate and keep quiet because I love them.
I often get cross-questioned and then receive support from the most unlikely quarters. Imagine my surprise when I recently spoke to a religious friend who questioned me about the meaning of a dream. I explained the nature of time in the simplest terms, and provided the meaning of some of the person’s dreams.
That same night the person dreamt about encountering a non-poisonous reptile lying belly up.
The next morning we drove out and saw some cow herds throwing stones at an ant hill. My friend got quite excited because this could only mean that they encountered a snake – which he immediately related to his dream.
It turned out that the reptile was a large salamander – and I did not have my camera with me! When the ant hill was destroyed, the salamander was laying there, belly up and ostensibly dead. But then I saw its tongue flickering and it was clear that it was still alive. I learned that salamanders are known for “playing dead” until things were safe again.
The dream was a prophetic dream, in other words one of those where you first have an experience in a different dimension, and then you have the same experience in this dimension. We are not our bodies. We use our bodies to house our spirits in our waking moments. Our spirits are free to roam whenever and wherever we want, and then to return to the container of our bodies so that we can “wake up”. This makes it possible for us to ostensibly have experiences before they occur.
This dream proved that it is important to take note of dreams and meaning, because dreams speak to us in a language that cannot be denied. What we experience in dreams is often a fore-runner of what we are bound to experience in life. We can choose to ignore it, or we can accept the language of dreams and make our waking life easier.
I once dreamt about being in a room where a knotted rope, like a gallows, was hanging from the ceiling. A few days later I visited someone who had that exact knotted rope hanging from the ceiling in his room. In my ignorance I thought that the dream identified the ideal man to me. It did not take me long to figure out that that not only was the dream a warning, but the knotted rope and the connection to the gallows were symbolic of the relationship that followed.
I am often surprised when religious people tell me that the interpretation of dreams is wrong and you should not take note of the meaning of dreams and apply them to your life. Religious scriptures are full of references to dreams, but for some reason fear took over and the interpretation of dreams has become a “sinful” practice in some circles.
When religious people approach me with “Please don’t tell anybody but please explain the meaning of a dream that I had” I meet them where they are and provide the explanation. They can “play dead” as much as they want, but I always recognize their true nature and I respond with Love and respect for their own level of recognition.
Love and Light
