A Seemingly Rude and Yet Positive Awakening (Interpreting a Dream for Embracing Life)
I found myself awakening from the strangest dream. It all took place in a dark setting even though it was daytime. It was sort of like in certain movies when it seems like the theme is dark and the sun rarely shines. In such a setting, even when the sun does shine, it seems to only peer through the darkness. This is how it felt in my dream, quite dark.
In the dream a very good friend of mine was working for my business and he also had a crew to help with his work. He and his crew were stranded on the road, and could not get to the next job. Not only was he trying to get to the next job, but he was trying to get to my wife (The beautiful lady I was with in this strange dark world) He was very much interested in her sexually and about to make his move. The two of us, my dream wife and I, were having some marital problems at the time and my friend in this realm knew this. And yet, there he was pursuing her despite our friendship, and in despite of his own marriage. It was surprising, and felt like a big betayal.
I soon felt myself awakening, not understanding why I was having this strange dream. I just kept laying on the bed asking why I would have such a dream, when I could have had any other dream. Perhaps one much more positive is what I would have expected. Then I remembered talking to my son about the movie Ground Hog Day, and how we must repeat situations until we get our lesson. This begged the question. What was the lesson in this dream?
Then right away, my page for the day came to mind. It was the very page I had read the day before in my book 30 Days of Metaphysics, Miracles and Enlightenment in Your LIfe. This was the second book I wrote quite some years ago. It is a combination of sayings and parables I learned from my teacher, and my explanations of them. Everyday I look at a page and make that my message. So do many other people who I know. It’s the way the book was designed to be read and experienced. And as I said, the dream reminded me of my page I had read just the day before the unpleasant dream. Oh yeah, the page I got was titled “When Sexual Energy Is Aroused, It Has The Power Of 21 Buffalos.”
As I remembered my page I had an aha moment, where I laughed to myself as I thought about how my teacher would at times ask, “Have you ever tried to stop 21 buffalos?” I realized that in the dream this energy had definitely been aroused, atleast in my friend’s case for sure. In the book it also mentions how we must be careful of the situations we place ourselves and our family members in. As I thought this, I realized something interesting. I was no longer upset by the dream. I was enjoying figuring out the message. I felt like the world was magical once again. I now understood my friend in the dream, and I realized how in my dream I was not careful of the situations I placed my “dream wife” and “dream friend” in at the time. I also realized that in my world I must pay attention to such things more carefully, and never forget that we are all human. I could see it all so clealy.
At this point I felt honored that the Universe was talking to me through my dream. I felt connected on account of my page showing up in my dream to give me a message. I was reminded of how the lessons in my book seem to magically show up in the reader’s world. Many times people have told me this was the case in their lives when reading and applying their page in the book. And once again I knew I had to share the book and the message of how spiritually connected we all are with more people.
I also remembered what I shared with my son the evening before. When Phil in the movie Groundhog Day decided to lean into the lesson, his life became grand. He magically became unstuck and was able to move on to the next wonderful day on account of really loving where he was and getting into the present adventure. This was the same thing I was doing while analising my dream. While thinking about all of this I was reminded that this is what life is all about, enjoying the here and now, looking for and getting the lesson, and becoming who the Universe wants us bo be. I found myself looking forward to the next wonderful lesson in my life, knowing I am magically connected to it.
