Coronavirus – wedding dream and visions

Published April 8, 2020 by Laura Crean Author

copied directly from my dream diary – Dream of 06-04-2020 5:12 AM

OK, so I’ve just woken, I will start writing and hopefully remember as it is fading already…

I know I was at a hotel and I had a week there – like I had a holiday in this hotel.  There was a wedding, but I think there was going to be a week of weddings – while I was there?!  I don’t know, it was strange, like I knew there was going to be weddings, but I wasn’t really sure whether I was really a guest or whether I just happened to be there for a break at the time they were going on – not sure if I was invited or not – maybe I was to the first one – not sure!

I remember that just before I woke up, I had gone back to my room and my Mum turned up (now obviously she has passed away in reality, but in the dream she turned up and it seemed normal).  She turned up with a boy, and I think it may have been my youngest daughter’s boyfriend – anyway, he was being disciplined for something, like I think she was telling him off about something.  Anyway, she said she would take him home and I think she asked if I was coming and I said something like, “Just take my key to the room with you and return it to reception and I will join you later.”  Because I wasn’t ready to leave just yet.  Then she left and I remember getting ready for bed and trying to decide which night dress to wear, I seemed to have a few choices and I seemed to want one that was long and covered my arms and was comfortable, but when I put it on I was too hot!  Not sure which one I put on in the end.

Then I went to bed, thinking I would probably actually stay the whole week, but I was just dropping off when I saw out of the corner of my eye, a doll that had come to life and was pushing a little dolly buggy!  I was really scared and I knew that if she saw me she would pretend not to be alive again, so I did it quickly.  Oh no!  That’s right, I snuck up on her and jumped around the corner and said, “Boo!”; but it was hard to get my mouth to work and it came out really slowly! – anyway, she knew she couldn’t pretend anymore and so stayed “Alive!”  I grabbed hold of the dolly’s hands, even though I was really scared, because obviously, she was a doll right, and she shouldn’t be alive!  I pretended to play with her, which she seemed to like, but all the time I was thinking, ‘how am I going to get rid of it?’ and I just wanted to go back to bed, to sleep.

So I went to the door and opened it and I was on a long balcony and could see across like a courtyard to a small yard or something, where there were some toys and a baby’s buggy, and I thought that must be where she had come from.  Then I realised that my Mum had gone and had taken the key with her, so if I left the room and the door shut, I would be locked out!  I didn’t know what to do.  On the one hand I wanted to try and take the doll to show people she was really alive and just pretending to be a doll, on the other, I just wanted to throw her out across the edge of the balcony back to the buggy and run back inside the room and hide from it!  It was such a scary thing.  In the end, I think I accidentally on purpose let the door close behind me and I was just thinking that I would just tell the reception the truth about my Mum taking the key back down to reception for me and they would give me another key, because I didn’t want to leave when I had a whole week to do stuff and enjoy the hotel and visit the weddings, because I knew they were all going to be different, with different guests.

I think I woke up then but I just remembered some more – so before i had gone back to the room, I remember checking in to the hotel super excited to be there.  I was trying to enjoy the amenities – there was a big bar/pub and lots of people all enjoying a wedding (the first of many wedding celebrations that were all going to be different themes) – this one had a “movie theme” so there were theme songs form these movies playing – it was really cool!  And I was just sort of at the bar with others, and I wasn’t sure whether they were guests either!  Or if I even actually knew them or not, they may have been random strangers – not sure!  I think one of them, she was a bit of an alcoholic was trying to hint that she wanted me to buy her a drink but I don’t know whether I was just thinking it or whether I actually said it out loud but I was like, ‘I’m not going to buy you a drink because I can’t afford it!’

Then I remember at one point, I don’t know if it was before or after the doll that I was down in the foyer of the hotel and they were getting ready for another wedding, and I was looking at a lot of display cases that had lots of art and things in them, including what looked like some vintage photos of – possibly women, possibly in wedding dresses or just period dresses – not sure.  I heard one of the members of staff – possibly a waiter, bar tender or receptionist – not sure, but one of the staff, saying something derogative about me, I think, anyway, whatever it was, the other one shushed them, saying, something like, “Be quiet!  She will hear you and I think she is one of the brides!”

I now remember that before all the hotel wedding, holiday stuff, I was a child riding my bike around the streets when I knew I shouldn’t be because we were in lock-down and I saw something going on at an old church – I can’t remember exactly, but I know it turned out to be like a coven of witches – actually, I think they may have been one of the wedding parties – but all the guests were women dressed in clothes that “weren’t allowed!”  Don’t know – I just knew it wasn’t allowed.  I got the impression that the clothes they were wearing weren’t allowed because of what was on them – like the design etc.  To me they just looked like New-Age, hippy dippy clothes to me, lots of tie-dye, rainbows and peace logos etc.  But apparently they were illegal because of the lock-down!

One of the girls fell down, like she had gone “down in the Spirit” but they didn’t know what to do and I just sort of could see her being put on something and start to be hoisted up – I wanted to get there to help her because I knew somehow I could help her but because of the lock-down I wasn’t supposed to be out on my bike – suddenly I was away from the scene and could see her being held up over or behind and over the top of the church – she was suddenly very big, like a giant and very obviously your typical black pointie hatted witch!  I knew I had to get back to where I was supposed to be and I think a policeman or a priest, or maybe he was both!  stopped me and said I shouldn’t be out on the street and I think I said I was on holiday and he may have said to me Or I may have just thought it; “This isn’t a holiday – it’s a lock-down!”

Anyway that’s all I can remember, and it’s all out of order but it’s hard to remember what order it was in!

I also sort of remember something about waiting for a lift as well – I didn’t know whether to get in it and go to the wedding reception or not because I wasn’t sure I was invited!

6.30AM

Just laid down to try and go back to sleep for a bit when I had a waking vision of me about to step into this river – like a little waterfall in a little river, and then I step up at the same time – like the river sort of goes up as I step up, and it was just like a step.  But it was sort of like in the sky – like going up into another dimension that is alongside the earthly river below it!  Cool – like “On Earth as it is in Heaven!”??

I don’t think God wants me to go back to sleep this morning! LOL – also I was wearing like this really pretty white, flowing dress, very romantic like!

Wrote down the above and then laid down again and had another vision of Sheldon from the Big Bang Theory knocking on a door in the middle of literally nowhere – like nothing and this door and he is knocking on the door saying, “Knock Knock” and then my Manager’s name and he did this I think 3 times!

Again I wrote this down then laid down again and had another vision, this time I saw a picture of me from the day before in the garden – I cut my roses down a bit to tidy it up and stuck some of the branches in a pot of Earth by my back door, for no particular reason, just stepped back and pushed them in there out of the way – but in the vision I thought – keep planting!!  Then I laid down again and said to God – “Can I please go to sleep now, laughing to myself and just as I was dropping off, an image of me recieving an envelope in my hand and a voice asking, “Get the message?”

Well – that was a busy dreaming – visioning session wasn’t it?  Praise God for all this super imagery.  I just don’t know where to start, but I think if you are a Christian you will see all the imagery of weddings and planting and stepping into rivers, wedding guests in and outside the “hotel”, the scary witches and the scary doll!  – I think in that respect it is pretty self evident.  But again,  there is a lot in this dream.  Please do bring any interpretation you would like to the table, from any angle you like.

If you have seen my last dream, you will see lots of repeating themes again – the party/wedding theme, movies/TV, families/children/toys/buggies, the drunk woman, the clothes, the giant, coronavirus lock-down acknowledgement…

“A Heavenly Greeting” Painting by Laura Crean – vision by God (<3 creator of the universe <3 )

This painting may seem very childlike in its artistic integrity; it IS a simple picture – however it is a vision I was blessed to be given as I was waking from a dream. Our Lord at the gates of heaven, with a line of children going off into infinity, being welcomed into his Kingdom. And Jesus, my Lord – Yeshua hamashiach – Stood and greeted ME, this simple, humble servant, with the biggest smile – and waving and greeting me, as if I was his bestest friend in the whole wide world! What a blessed vision to receive. My art, I know, is not that of a Master artist, and I do struggle with capturing what I really want to reflect, but in this painting, I feel the child-like quality just adds to his beautiful message – we are ALL his children and welcomed into his Kingdom equally as his blessed family. I hope you will appreciate this simple reflection of this vision, but know that it really is just a simple reflection of the most glorious vision that I actually saw! Jesus at the gates of heaven, with God’s glory pouring out on ALL his children, welcomed into his loving Kingdom…

Celebrating an Artistic Spring

Published February 29, 2020 by Laura Crean Author

Hello everyone I am celebrating a new Spring collection of Art, in time for Mother’s Day and Easter.  So please view, enjoy, shop for and share the Spring season’s celebrations.

The first of my Spring collections is entitled, “Windmill by the Waterside”  –  An Acrylic painting of A pretty riverbank scene with a windmill, kingfisher, poppies, bulrushes and swans.

My next collection features an artwork that could equally be enjoyed for both Mother’s Day and Easter.  This collection is entitled “A Mother’s Love” – This acrylic and glitter painting was actually inspired by the shapes and patterns I saw on a picture of the surface of Mars – it turned out to be this reflection of a Mother’s love. To me, it shows Mary holding the baby Jesus and the out pouring of the Holy Spirit as the waters of life.

The Storms of Life

You Tube video – “The Storms of Life”

The Storms of Life

With the recent stormy weather, and knowing all about coping with the emotional storms in the world and my personal life over the years, I took a walk and contemplated ‘the storms of life’. I focused on God and his word and how it has taught me to look for God in the storm, to focus on his awesome power in the storm and have faith that he will guide me, and steer me through it. To have faith that my divine purpose in him will ultimately shine a light through the storm until the sun comes out again. Where’s your perspective in the storms of life?… If you would like to buy a print of my Acrylic lighthouse painting entitled “God is my Light and Salvation’, follow the link below (design also available on many other products including, clothes, mugs, phone cases and cushions) –

Welcome to the new me – writing more, painting more and blogging and vlogging more.  Please help me to embrace this new chapter in my life by liking, subscribing to my new look You Tube channel and sharing my endeavours.  Please let me know what you want me to blog and vlog about and then sit back and enjoy.

Please note, there is a couple of very small glitches between 3 and 4 minutes in the video but it doesn’t affect the content of the video so please just wait for it to clear and carry on watching.  It took me so long to get the video up that I didn’t want to risk not having it at all.  And hopefully I will have ironed out all the glitches by the time I upload my next video, which should follow within a week.

Enjoy…

God the Gardener

Published December 11, 2018 by Laura Crean Author

I realise that I haven’t updated for a while,  so I just thought I would add this post to show some of my new paintings.  I will also be adding a post about  an Arts exhibition that I was involved in recently, so please look out for that.

A while back I posted about a dream that I had and posted what I thought God was speaking to me about in it.  You can look back at that post if you would like; it was entitled “The Reluctant Time traveller and the Orange tree in the Garden.” Just click the link below, read and come back here…

The Reluctant Time Traveller and the Orange Tree in the Garden

Eventually I was inspired to paint some imagery from this dream. So here it is; it is entitled “God the Gardener.”

I was also at that time looking at Genesis. So another painting I have completed recently is entitled “The Fall” and as you can see it is Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden.

Lastly I want to share my most recent painting entitled “Blue Jay and Jacaranda” and it also was inspired by a dream; this was a dream that I had many years ago, over 20 years ago in fact. In that dream I was actually shown a little blue bird in the Tree of Life, which had every fruit possible in it ( I didn’t include the fruit in this  painting but it had the feeling of the bird in the tree. ) In the dream the bird told me what fruit to eat to bring me healing.  And it did heal me.

So, a little while ago I was ill with a strange vertigo bug and after having healing at church, which led to me being on the floor with the Holy Spirit working in my head ( my eyes behind my closed lids were going nineteen to the dozen and I knew God was healing me.)  This wasn’t an immediate healing, although I had no dizziness the next day, I did still have  it on and off for a while but I definitely felt the healing.  But after this healing I was reminded of the dream and took the fruit I had been told to have in that dream as part of my healing.  Then I painted this picture.

I hope you have enjoyed looking at some of my new paintings and as you can see they are all very much to do with God the Gardener, who once walked with us in a garden that he created just for us!  He walked with us and talked with us and gave us the job of looking after the garden and everything in it.

Unfortunately we let sin into the garden which polluted it.  One day we will be given permission to eat from the actual tree of life once more; God really does want to walk and commune with us again as it was in  the beginning.

That snake Satan may have reached out to bruise the heel of Man but Jesus, though bruised has crushed that snake’s head once and for all and he will not enter the garden again.  I for one cannot wait to walk up that golden path and reach out to pluck the fruit from the tree of life and spend an eternity communing with God -my creator who from the beginning had amazing plans for us, his beloved children.

Wow! We just cannot imagine the amazing things in store for us in the garden our Heavenly Father has prepared for us.
