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…

My first you Tube video introducing The Well in the Garden

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.
