What are dreams to you? They can be an idea or wish of something we want to accomplish. Or, they can be those interesting activities that go on in our minds when we are sleeping. I'm going to speak a bit about them.
A little while ago one came to mind I want to share. I don't want to make a long story, but I was brought up Baptist, I am still a moderate Baptist, but I'm beginning to wonder about organized religion. It seems there is always so much conflict, and one wants to be right and make the others wrong, etc. However, I think if a church is where I can be the most connected, I'm there! Hasn't been the case for me recently, but that may be changing. Anyhow, I fear death. I joke that I'm still not sure if I'm going to hell or not when the truth is I don't even believe in a hell that doesn't exist on this plane.
So, I thought I feared hell more than death, but a dream I had within the last few years showed me otherwise. First, I've had a recurring dream about plain crashes throughout my life. It started with a knowledge of a crash at the airport, each dream brought me closer to the airport over the years until I saw the plane crash. Then I didn't have the dream again. I did have another dream where I was in a plane that crashed and I knew I was going to die. I felt fear, then an incredible peace and feeling of safety. I welcomed death. Then I woke up.
I believe we are sometimes blessed with reassurances from Spirit in our dreams. I could go on about other dreams I've had in which I felt this. They are somehow different. This one didn't feel like one of those. I did remember the feeling of being without fear vividly, however, and it was like a precious gift. I had no idea how much fear I have in my life, which I, of course, have tried to become more conscious of.
Let me know if you have any dreams to share, or want to 'talk' about. I love dreams. I write them down a lot and sometimes I can't read what I wrote! They are usually a little unpleasant, but that one offered me a glimpse of what it would feel like to not have fear.
Oh, by the way, I always take a tranquilizer before I fly. I've been doing this about 5 years, and Jeezum Crowe, it's so nice not to be staring at the flight attendant the whole time, to make sure he or she doesn't look panicked! And being able to breathe during takeoff and while landing. I like breathing consistently.
