Another dream related to Coronavirus… (1 Peter 5:8 and John 10:10)

Published May 8, 2020 by Laura Crean Author

I had a dream a couple of days ago and just before I woke up I started singing to the tune of the pink panther (Like a joke big cat – like it says in the bible… a Lion prowling, I would say) – It went like this… “Outside, outside, where coronavirus hides, outside, outside…where the enemy hides!” Admit it – you’re humming the pink panther now aren’t ya? Altogether now…

 

“Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.” (1 Peter 5:8)

So the Pink Panther is a thief – the Devil comes to steal, kill and destroy!

The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy;”  (John 10:10)

But do you know what Devil? The joke’s on you – Jesus will have the last laugh…

 

Here is a little more of this scripture, taken from Biblegateway.com;

Therefore Jesus said again, “Very truly I tell you, I am the gate for the sheep. All who have come before me are thieves and robbers, but the sheep have not listened to them. I am the gate; whoever enters through me will be saved. They will come in and go out, and find pasture. 10 The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.

11 “I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep. 12 The hired hand is not the shepherd and does not own the sheep. So when he sees the wolf coming, he abandons the sheep and runs away. Then the wolf attacks the flock and scatters it. 13 The man runs away because he is a hired hand and cares nothing for the sheep.

14 “I am the good shepherd; I know my sheep and my sheep know me— 15 just as the Father knows me and I know the Father—and I lay down my life for the sheep. 16 I have other sheep that are not of this sheep pen. I must bring them also. They too will listen to my voice, and there shall be one flock and one shepherd. 17 The reason my Father loves me is that I lay down my life—only to take it up again. 18 No one takes it from me, but I lay it down of my own accord. I have authority to lay it down and authority to take it up again. This command I received from my Father.”

(John 10: 7-18)

I find it interesting in the above link of 1 Peter 5 that it talks about the crown of glory.  You know Coronavirus can be interpreted as “The Virus of the Crown” right?  Well I would say, please read the above scriptures and remember who it is that wears the crown of victory!

Update – Just took another look at this – “I am the gate; whoever enters through me will be saved.” –  apparently also can be interpreted as ‘kept safe’ – so if you think about how everybody is going around telling everybody to “Keep safe” – this can only be done through Yeshua who is the door or gate – we have to keep in his enclosure – his house – is the only safe place to be – IN HIM! Just thought I would go with what the Holy Spirit is showing me! ❤ Keep safe everyone ❤

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…

“Rat Race” Coronavirus related Dream

Published April 5, 2020 by Laura Crean Author

For anyone interested in dreams and dream symbolism in general or anyone following my dreams.  I have actually had a lot of dreams the past few months but haven’t published them – I may come back to them and add some at a later date.  Anyway I thought this one was interesting and obviously focused a lot on the fact of the times we are living in with the Coronavirus and me being sick.

Dream of the Morning of Sunday April 5th 2020 (around 5am)…

I had been dreaming about going to some family party in the countryside somewhere and I was going to see some of my second cousins on my Dad’s side.

I was walking up a country road with a buggy with a child, but it wasn’t actually any of my daughters in real life. Walking with me was (my manager’s daughter). Somewhere in Oxford was mentioned.

I said to my manager’s daughter, “Do you know where you are going?” and she answered, yes. A asked her if she wanted to call her Mum and she said that no she didn’t need to, but I insisted and she said the phone was in her backpack. So I opened the bag and held it out to her and she put her hand in and rummaged around to try and find it but gave up, saying it was in amongst the presents somewhere. I told her she gave up too easily, so I took the plastic bag out and could see the phone through the bag, she put her hand in and got it out but for some reason didn’t use it that I can remember.

Then we could see there was this small village up ahead. Someone I knew in the dream, but not in real life, pulled up beside us in a car and said, “We’ll race you there!” And for some reason we left the buggy behind (I had the child in my arms) and we ran the rest of the way.

The party was strange – I can’t really remember most of it. My manager’s daughter was no longer with me – just me and the child. There was something about conversations about Tesco, about the delivery slots I think. Apparently the party was for a little girl in the family who was really sick and we were all supposed to be bringing a present of a game for her. I was suddenly a man in the dream, one of the other dream characters, a male cousin, and I hadn’t brought a present, so I apparently went to a charity shop to get one (didn’t see this happen) but I put my offering on the table of a very old monopoly game with the old red box and red lettering. I felt very guilty about this.

There was some other strange bits in this part of the dream, that are quite vague so I’m not sure I can even attempt to explain, except to say it was something like an ego driven man competition between me and another man! It involved fighting (play fighting and wrestling) and games and some half naked, I think, body image stuff! Can’t explain more than that!

The child and I went to the house of the sick child. There was also another little girl visiting. We were welcomed into the parlour for tea by the mother, but she told us the child was too sick to have any visitors. Then I was from the child I had been with’s perspective and I snuck in with the other girl to see the sick child.

We had a sneaky look in through the bedroom door; she looked like a giant in her room! Like Alice in Wonderland when she’s too big for the white rabbit’s house – not too big but out sized for her actual size and all her furniture. Her Mum walked in the bedroom from another door and saw us and said that it was OK and that it was just an illusion, like a game to make her daughter feel better – to make her ‘feel’ big! (like a fun house) Then they started throwing things at each other and laughing!

Then I think as we left the village, I was now in a car with my child on my lap (who was now a baby) in the front passenger seat, and I was trying to strap the baby to my lap with the seat belt saying, “This doesn’t feel safe!”

Then there was driving through the countryside and some towns. We watched people having strange ‘races’ through the streets, using odd things to race with, like I think I remember them using chairs and possibly shopping trolleys – it didn’t make much sense to me.

I remember as we were leaving the village, before this point when she was older, the girl said she had to get her bandanna, that she had left it at a cousin’s house – the one I had been wrestling with! His house consisted of a series of little buildings that were made to look like a fairy or pixie village – like larger versions of the toadstool houses I remember from Black Gang Chine on the Isle of White when I was a child. She popped into one and retrieved her red bandanna! It looked like how I remembered the Karate Kid bandanna to look like – with the red sun image on it!

I remember something about looking at a map and seeing real time airport plans of planes, all lined up on a runway – but just on one side! Don’t know what that was all about.

Also I was part of a celebrity bit again – the cast of a soap (Coronation Street I think). We were asked to give up 80% of an inheritance they had all had from another cast member who had died and I remember thinking, “well that’s OK if you can afford it!” There was a broadcast about these members and their children – I was a member and the film crew wanted to film me and on my wall, my family photos (and I think my daughter and there was something about her backpack with her homework in! Remembered this later.) Then on the show they showed interviews with cast members and did little films with them and how they interacted with their children. One showed someone in Africa, interacting with babies and children in a little African village; and then there was one cast member who was shown to be a bit of a drunk with her kid, but that may have been her character on the show – not sure! So the show was meant to be Coronation Street I think, but it wasn’t the actual characters or actors from reality.

Before I woke up I was in my bed and I took a call from my manager at work and she asked me if my daughter Ellie (who has done care work before) could come and help. I told her I was sorry but that Ellie didn’t live with me any more and that she works 12 hour shifts as it is, and my manager said, she knew that but asked if there would be anything she could do. I told her that she wouldn’t, I was very sorry about that and also said that she had asthma and then my manager said, “That’s all I need to know” and put the phone down! I thought she sounded really stressed and 2 minutes later she rang back and was crying on the phone (completely out of character – it would more likely be me crying on the phone to work not the other way round LOL) – she said she’d just had a difficult conversation to deal with and she was really upset! I said to her, “I’m really sorry and it must be so stressful for you right now – I’m so sorry, I feel totally useless!” Then I told her to take a deep breath and breathe in through her nose and out through her mouth – the I woke up!

………………………………………………………..

Some immediate interpretation…

I note that there seems to be some recurring themes here for me in this dream and from previous ones.

  • The Alice in Wonderland/child fantasy land/Fun House theme.

  • Me being part of a TV show/soap – Coronation Street particularly – I feel this could be like an indication of being a child of God! A spiritual connection. Being a participant in my life’s story!

  • Games or toys – this comes up a lot. I find it interesting that the main game focused on in this dream was Monopoly (the game of life as it were, a game about money and business Monopolies, particularly Landlords!?) There were other board games on the table in the dream but this was the main one.

  • Red theme – red bandanna and Monopoly board and I’m thinking of the Devil in my last dream and painting red toe nails and red flip-flops! Red is a danger sign!

  • I am also conscious of the real life stresses involving worries about shopping, work, stress, travel concerns – all related to the Coronavirus issues in real time, although I personally don’t travel by plane. I think the race through the streets is also to do with this issue of self-isolating and social lock down – I am thinking of the “Rat Race” that is life in the world as it is in the world right now and how it is affecting people (obviously including me)

  • Going to a party theme.

  • Family theme – i.e. my children/extended family I don’t see, also Ellie/Manager’s daughter, Alice, sick child and mother, other visiting child, children of soap stars. Not sure why my manager and her daughter would be quite apparent in this dream other than the fact that I’m worrying about not being able to work and being sick. Also work and family I suppose are closely linked – all the people around me in daily life.

“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…

God the Gardener

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.

Dreams – The Reluctant Time traveller – and The Orange Tree in the Garden

Published June 29, 2018 by Laura Crean Author

(Written at 2.30 AM)

I have just had the strangest dream. Very weird!. It involved Abraham Lincoln as a reluctant time traveller.  I saw him walk through this portal and explore other times – past, present and future.

Then there was something about him using a telescope that had a beam of light coming out of it, straight up into the sky.

Also there was something about him standing up in some kind of assembly (like a school assembly hall) talking about equal rights and talking about the fact that we are all products of our ancestry and basically  that we are all made up of  every different cultural and ethnic background.  That somewhere in our ancestry line there will be some distant relation who would have been of a different race, colour or creed to what we ourselves identify with and therefore we are all mixed race and should stop worrying about it in society and be more tolerant of everyone and each other – one people- one church?

The next dream I remember was something about a kitchen and the right appliances being used for the right job. First of all I was trying to move a freezer out of the room because it was in the way and so dangerous, but whoever was in the kitchen with me said I would get into trouble for moving it.. I said I didn’t care because it was dangerous where it was.  However it was also dangerous to move it because there were electric cables of other appliances in the way.  So where I wanted to move it to (which was out of the kitchen and in the hallway) was difficult and dangerous to get to.

Then I tried to fill up a large plastic juice beaker with water from my one cup machine but because it wasn’t the right container for the purpose, it basically spilled over into the base plate. I remember thinking ” that was dangerous!” Because I knew it was the wrong container for the job!

Ok so it is 3:47 A.M and I can’t go back to sleep because the symbolism of the dream keeps playing out in my mind and I feel I won’t be able to sleep until I write it down. Where to start?

Vision, transparency and forward thinking…

The reluctant time traveller, Abe Lincoln, with his portal time machine and telescope light beam; I feel this is to do with being forward thinking – vision – and then there’s the ‘following the light’ theme.

The fact that it is dealing with time – past, present and future, makes me feel that this is to do with the eternal properties of God – the eternal – he is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow and his word never changes. So being in line with God’s word and will – the beam of light (God’s glory?) So having vision (looking through the telescope) being forward thinking ( alongside the time machine ) and lining up and following his eternal will that never changes.  That brings me to the assembly.

I feel this is once again about the eternal will of God for his children; looking at who is speaking (Abraham Lincoln). So just like the kitchen and the tools for the right job; he is the right man for the job. Let’s look briefly at his character – ( taken from Wikipedia);

Abraham Lincoln, born 12:02:1809. He was the 16th president of the United States of America. He was a statesman and lawyer.  He was assassinated and died 15:4:1865. He was a very tall, unusual looking man, , loved his King James Bible, having read it cover to cover time and again.

Abe Lincoln quotes; “Government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the Earth,”

“A house divided against itself cannot stand,”

“Whatever you are, be a good one.”

When I think of Abraham Lincoln, I think of the civil war, the Declaration of Independence and the abolishment of slavery. So like I said, I think this is about the eternal will of God for his children (i.e. The ancestry/genes/ the equality factor. That we are all God’s  children and should be like-minded, inclusive, fair, just, kind and considerate, compassionate etc.  Made me think of the last children’s church lesson involving 1 Peter 3:8. – ” Be like-minded, be sympathetic, love one another, be compassionate and humble.”

So,yes, being the right person for the job (not sure why I keep thinking of him as the reluctant time traveller though).

Going back to the kitchen and the right tools for the job i.e. The right container for the water (Holy Spirit). It was a large container and was overflowing (Psalm 23:5 – “my cup overflows”) but didn’t fit with the dispenser (Jesus) – i.e. Not lining up again with God’s will.

Also thinking of the hot water versus the cold freezer – being hot and cold? Cup and one cup machine not fit for purpose and the freezer not fitting in the kitchen. Not in line with God’s will again?

When I went back to sleep I had another dream. This dream was really special because it was an answer to prayer. First of all let me tell you why.

Last week I had a small dream on the end of another dream (can’t remember which one) but the small dream confused me because I thought maybe there was more to it that I couldn’t recall and that I didn’t understand what it was about!  The dream was simply that I was given a basket with pears in – 1 small pear and 2 really large, juicy, delicious looking pears.

I asked God to let me have the dream again, this time letting me remember it all, or else to help me understand what the dream means. So this is where this last dream last night comes in.

I dreamed I was walking through a garden. It was a garden belonging to a retirement home – the kind of manager run homes I often have clients in as a community care worker. However, this was the best retirement home you could ever want to live in; it was everything you could ever want to enjoy the rest of your life in and the garden was the best part – beautiful beyond any garden I had seen in any other retirement home.

As I walked through the garden I came to the most beautiful tree. It had 3 oranges on it (that I could see); there was one small orange on one branch and two huge, really delicious, juicy looking oranges on another branch. These two oranges were joined together.

The gardener was just beyond the tree and he smiled and greeted me as I approached the tree.  I told him how wonderful the oranges were and asked him if I could have the two large juicy looking oranges.  He said to me very seriously: “Only if you promise to eat them because they are too delicious to waste.” I promised I would because they looked so delicious. And that was it and I woke up.

The first thing that springs to mind is the tree (tree of life?) Then the 3 pieces of fruit both times (Holy Trinity?) I’m not sure why one is smaller than the other two or why the 2 oranges were joined together. The 2 large pears may have been joined together but I don’t remember for sure.  I also wonder why pears and oranges?

The retirement home and the garden I believe represent the Kingdom of Heaven and the promise and warning not to waste the fruit could be possibly lining up with God’s will again.  Taking hold of God’s free gift of salvation in Jesus Christ?  I suppose it’s as simple and as wonderful as that! What a fantastic and special message and answer to prayer.

Now lastly, joining that dream onto the kitchen dream earlier  and the Abraham Lincoln theme and I’m thinking of the quote ” by the people for the people”  it makes me think this is confirmation of my plan to produce a book for my church congregation for them and by them on the theme of spiritual food! LOL God is so awesome!

Monday 9th July 2018 Update :-

I meant to update this last Sunday but I just haven’t had the time.  So anyway, I’m still flying high after sharing 2 dream images with the church Sunday  morning and then finding out this was in line with the message from our visiting guest speaker – Bayo Babalola – the dream images I had already had about the fruit of the spirit and the tree of life and also the overflowing cup from my one cup machine. But it wasn’t until the morning before church (I had a shift at work) and as I was walking around God was telling me or giving me a clearer interpretation and putting in my heart to share. At the end of my shift I was feeling really sick with the heat. I didn’t know how I was going to make it through the day, go to church and work again in the afternoon – I was sick, dizzy, hot etc. But God said go to church and share my message through the dream.

I felt God was telling me that the importance of the large fruit and the overflowing water from the one cup machine was the same message – that his love through his Holy Spirit is just so abundant – a free gift –  and the joined fruit shows not only that we are in partnership with him but that we must be fruitful and multiply through his fruit – his abundant love.  Now the one cup machine cup being so big was showing me that it doesn’t matter how big the container (i.e us) – the container will never be big enough then to contain his love because it is so big, ever flowing and cannot be contained!  I just love this imagery – don’t you?

Then I helped upstairs with the children and that was brilliant but I missed the message downstairs. Then I went home ( still feeling quite heat exhausted by the way) I rested for a bit and thankfully got my afternoon shift reduced to just 2 clients but even that I found hard in the heat because I am not coping with the heat too well at the moment. I came home. We ate and I watched tv with my daughter for a while and fell asleep until 10.30. Then I watched the morning’s visiting speaker – and was blown away by God’s abundant LOVE – praise God❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ ❤️ Scroll down the wall to see the message you will NOT be disappointed.

Ok so fast forward to yesterday (Sunday 8th July) and we had another guest speaker – Rich Bowles. Once again blown away by the message but he also mentioned my dream vision and extremely eloquently linked it in with the message.  However it wasn’t until I went to link the video here – the second video underneath, that I realised his talk was about vision (the other theme of the dream above) so now I am just blown away by God’s amazing abundance of blessings and I am so honoured and humbled that he has shared this with me and continues to do so.

The blessings continued with amazing things coming out of the worship and prayer time yesterday evening and then I had more dreams last night, which I will share later.  Please watch the messages and I hope you will feel as blessed as I do by their wonderful content and see the links with my dreams.  Take hold of God’s free gift in Jesus Christ, be fruitful and have YOUR vision tested today.

God bless you all.

❤️❤️Laura❤️❤️

 

 

 

 

 

 

“Let me carry you…”

Published June 23, 2018 by Laura Crean Author

Ok guys so I know I seem to be focussing on dreams at the moment but that’s what is going on in my life so that’s what you are getting.  Last night I had 2 dreams and I’ll start with the last one first.

Buckle up you’re in for a ride… dreams can lead you somewhere you never thought you’d go!

I was the girl from Pretty in Pink but at first I was pretty geeky. My younger brother was all dressed up in a driver’s uniform, very smart with the hat and everything and he was driving me and my Mother around. My Mother was very beautiful, quite sophisticated and glamorous. My brother was about 13 or 14 but acted very mature. He looked and sounded mature and confident. His driving seemed very reckless to me but we didn’t crash, even though I was quite scared, He was very much in control.

We were stopped by a policeman (to me he looked very sexy) and I was trying desperately to flirt with him but to my embarrassment crashed and burned because I was obviously just a geeky teenager.

Then I decided I wanted to be more mature like my younger brother, I wanted to take a leaf out of his book and had a makeover to make myself seem more grown up, to look older, more sexy.

I started driving myself around looking for cool stuff to do. Went to parties etc – oh! Hang on, first of all I went swimming with my brother and had a period in the pool!  We were the only 2 people in there but it was obviously very embarrassing. Then he told me  or made me aware of it so I climbed out of the pool.  A woman was there and she was horrified. – she gave me a pad to put on in my knickers and saw that I already had a bloody one in there and asked me what on Earth I thought I was doing getting in the pool.  I replied that I had forgotten that I had my period.

Like I said, then I started dressing up and putting makeup on and stuff and started going to parties. And then I kept getting glimpses of the young man who lived next door.  through his windows, and started fantasising about him.

Then finally one day I broke in (actually I keep saying “I ” but actually I was more detached from the girl in the dream – it was more like I was watching her than being her.) She went in search in the house for the young man and her parents (her father first) got sight of her in the window about to go up the stairs. Being outside the house, he could see the whole house, see into all the windows and he saw the young man making love to a woman upstairs in the attic.

The father and his wife opened the door just as the man and his wife (now holding a baby, behind her husband) peeked out from the attic door while the girl was half way up the stairs. The young man and his wife look horrified at the intrusion and the Mother and Father apologise for their daughter and the mother explains she is a teenager going through “stuff “and take her home.

There was also something at the end of the dream about pop–corn. I remember trying to make pop-corn in a pop-corn maker but it exploding out like it being out of control and flying all over the place and being too much for me to handle. A bit like a volcano erupting!

I actually woke up thinking it meant that I was immature in Christ, like one of these “baby Christians ” they’re always talking about. Like I felt like I am looking forward to the excitement of a rapture like event when Jesus comes to take us “home ” but that I am not ready, not mature enough in Christ yet. I’m like that teenage girl who wants to rush into adulthood but misses the point of the “growing up ” part, the “maturing” part.

The dream before had a similar message I think. I was part of a group of children on a camping like trip, not in tents but like a children’s  club type holiday kind of deal. I can’t really remember much of the dream but I do know it was similar, in that, we were trying to have grown up relationships with each other but didn’t know how that worked. At some point there was a man (I think the father figure) in a reclining armchair with a bomb underneath it ready to go off at any moment! I can’t remember why or the context or what happened.

I remember us all having to pack really quickly because we were being picked up but we all had too much “stuff “/”baggage “as it were. Too many clothes, games and toys and “stuff ” – the man picking us up was like the Father figure in the other dream.  He gave us all black bags (dustbin bags) and told us to just shove it all in the bags and be quick about it because it was time to go!

Ok so it all feels very much like the father figure in both dreams is our Heavenly Father – it feels like he is ready to come and get us but we are not (or certainly I’m not anyway) ready for him!

It’s like he can see the big picture i.e. the house in the second dream where he can see into all the windows at once but because we are in the middle of it, we can’t see from the same perspective.- he can see the consequences of our actions.  Like, he can see the immaturity like in both the character sets of both dreams – the children on holiday and the teenage girl – out of control and Ill-prepared.

There is also a lot of flirting with danger – the boy and the car, the girl and the swimming pool, policeman, the attempt to seduce the strange young man in the house, the young and inappropriate relationships; and also the bomb and the pop-corn have a feeling of urgent,immanent danger but also excitement of “something” happening about to explode!

There is also a theme of pretending to be something you’re not or rushing to be something you’re not – grown up! Mature! In control! But in the end, they all needed the Father to bail them out of trouble! I’m thinking here also of the reclining chair.  It’s like, don’t get too comfortable because the Father is in control and he could explode (the bomb under his chair) at any minute! His patience is wearing thin.  And with the packing – I’ll come back to that in a minute.

Note: Like I have said before; I’m not really coping very well at the moment, my life seems very “out of control” and I feel like the dreams are reminding me to stop trying to do things on my own, under my own steam and from my own perspective but to put my trust in my Heavenly Father to yeald  control to him. Give him control of the car, so to speak.

I feel like the wife in the second dream is probably representative of the Holy Spirit as she was the passenger in the car with me but was waiting for me to do what I needed to do. I’m wondering now if maybe the boy was Jesus, because he was driving the car – he was in the uniform ( authority maybe but also in service.)  He was “in control” and even though it felt like his driving was quite reckless, he was actually very calm and controlled, the car making  dangerous risky moves but he was always in control, calm, never crashing – in fact, miraculously making manoeuvres through traffic that shouldn’t be possible. It was me as the passenger who felt out of control!  Also the fact that he was in the pool with me while I was having a period feels a bit like a baptism – the period a marked time in “growing up” – going through the necessary embarrassments and messy part of puberty.

Lastly I just wanted to go back to the father figure in the first dream, when he was telling me to put all our toys, games and clothes in the black bags and hurry up and get in the car with him (which was a people carrier by the way). I feel like the clothes, toys and games are our roles, attitudes, tools and world views (our way of playing or acting in the world) – he wanted me to put all of that away and let him “carry me” (the people carrier), let him be in control and take me where I need to go.  It also reminds me of the scripture;

1Corinthians 13:11-13

“When I was a child, I talked like a child,I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me.  For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.

And now these three remain: faith, hope and love.  But the greatest of these is love.”

What an incredible night of dreams and a message of hope. Our Heavenly Father loves us and wants us to be ready, he wants us to know him, fully! And to ourselves be fully known by him but also by ourselves. He wants us to be spiritually mature.

Like with the house and windows in the dream and the mirror in the scripture; we cannot see from God’s perspective here on Earth, in the same way God sees us and the bigger picture.

I know how out of control my life is without Jesus at the steering wheel. I ask Holy Spirit to not only be the passenger in my life but to be a partner, prompting me and guiding me like a mother guides her daughter in the wisdom of growing up – the love of God is our proof he wants us to trust him but time is short.

I know I need to put all my childish Earthly baggage away and let God carry me through the world.  There are too many obstacles in the road, too many distractions and temptations – only Jesus knows the way through all that – he is the way, so I must let him take the wheel.

I hope this speaks to someone else, but I am feeling really blessed to be able to get so much personally out of these dreams.

 

Monday 25th June 2018 – I just wanted to add a little update.  The lesson at church yesterday was about Jesus as the good shepherd and of course one of the images is of Jesus as a shepherd carrying the lost sheep. Someone who read my post told me it confirmed my dream to her as a message that had touched her. That is all the confirmation I need that God speaks to me through my dreams and if they speak to just one other person, then sharing has been worthwhile.

The Royal Wedding, my dream and “The Candlelight Club”

Published May 19, 2018 by Laura Crean Author

I had a dream on Wednesday night and I posted it to my Facebook page and then each time I went online I seemed to find something else to add to my observations of it. So here we go, I have decided to share it here and yes, more came to me and has been added.

I spent my day off Wednesday preparing for Children’s church on Sunday and so I think that has a lot to do with this great dream I had Wednesday night. Anyway I thought I would share it.

I dreamed I was at a big fancy hotel somewhere where an event like an awards ceremony or something was going on, like the Oscars or something and the place was filled with celebrities of all kinds; actors, producers, musicians, artists etc. and their families were also staying with them.

One night a group of the children of these celebrities were bored and wandered around the hotel looking for something to do. They all sort of stumbled together in a vacant area and met me lol – we all got chatting and I realised they all had issues of feeling in the background- being in the shadow of their celebrity relatives’ fame and talent – and all felt lost, hopeless, useless and had no purpose in life.

I told them all that God loved them all and had made them all with their own gifts and unique talents and had a plan and a purpose for them all.

I said:  “God has brought you all together for a reason. He wants you to shine your little lights in the darkness of Hollywood and spread his light and love round through your own gifts. Having money and a family name is all well and good but what joy do you have in your lives? Jesus wants you to have his joy and use those God given gifts and the gifts the Holy Spirit wants to give you through Jesus to give you a purpose of your own.”

And all these children who were related to famous people like Michael Jackson, Will Smith and other famous people were just dying to show me what they could do. And each of them were happy to make friends with each other and were happy because they knew what Jesus had done for them.

I called the club the Candlelight Club because they all had their own little light to shine and their families came and saw the fruits of their gifts and just what they had to share with the World for good.

I woke up thinking what a positive dream it was. It doesn’t matter what your past is, or who your family is or what troubles you – Jesus wants you to be a light for the World and shine. He can give you that joy and purpose again.

Whoever you are let Jesus find you in the dark place where you are lost and lonely and looking for purpose – Reach out and be a part of something bigger than your past, your failures, your anxieties and he will bring you into a new life; a life worthy of you for who you are not for what others think you are.

Anyway I wanted to share – and thank God for such a cool dream and vision. Wouldn’t it be lovely to see the next generation in Hollywood living for a brighter future, using their gifts and privileges to spread light…

First amendment to dream observations:-

I just had a thought. I was wondering why the names of Will Smith and Michael Jackson came to me as part of this dream and usually names have some significance- I was thinking “Will” and Jack “son” so maybe the will of the son. Which has 2 significant meanings in this dream – firstly that we each have a purpose in the will of Jesus (the son) but also that each child in this dream has their own will and purpose apart from their parents or famous relatives – well I know the dream is for me too and I am comforted at the thought of letting my little light shine. I’ve had that song in my head all day lol – This little light of mine, I’m gonna let it shine!

Second amendment to dream observations:-

I’ve just realised Jackson- “Jack” -Union Jack 🇬🇧- Britain- son of Britain- could also relate to the royal Wedding as well – cool!

Third amendment to dream observations:-

I am also seeing the black actors in Hollywood theme here and linking that to Megan – how deep does the rabbit hole go?

Ok Fourth amendment to dream observations:-

These are today’s new observations, as the Royal wedding buzz is on.  I keep thinking of Prince Harry and Megan and how  these symbolic images relating to my dream keep popping into my head. Today I was thinking about the black celebrities  theme in my dream and  2 things came to me- first of all how important a symbol Megan is now as a new member of the Royal family, a new generation of Royals but also this link with a new generation of celebrity both in the United Kingdom and the United States of America and specifically Hollywood, which has the biggest influence on our children and the next generation.

So I feel, in this way God is laying a message for her about her responsibilities to be a shining light across the board – no pressure Megan, I mean that. I think she should be herself, use her gifts as a celebrity to do good.

The second black theme I see is for Harry.  You see as we are all “sheep” in God’s fold as it were and I see  Harry as a bit of a “black sheep” in his family .  I don’t mean it in a bad way. I think he is like a breath of fresh air, a bit of a rebel. He does what he feels is the right things for him and I believe that is why this dream is for him.  I believe God is using his unique gifts for the greater good and Harry should continue to be a shining light for the next generation and continue to stand out in his family.

I also think the  “Jack” symbol in the dream could stand for “jack of all trades” that he has many gifts to share and his Father should be very proud of him.  He really stands out as an ambassador for the younger generation and I think he will continue to do so, with his work with children, with the invictus games and with Megan’s connections in Hollywood.

Ok I just had another thought; the Candlelight Club could also be a tribute to Diana – thinking of the “candle in the wind” song tribute from Elton John – So yeah, be a light, a candle Harry, just like your Mum!

Who would have thought one little dream would make me think of so many different things going on in my life and in the World – so cool!  Hope my little dream ramblings inspire someone else to ask :

“How can I be a shining light in the world?  What gifts has God given me to share with others?”

Why don’t you invite Jesus into your life and let him give you the gift of the Holy Spirit living inside you to realise your purpose in him today.

God bless and love and light to you all.   ❤Laura❤
