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❤

WHY should I label myself a CHRISTIAN?

Published May 6, 2015 by Laura Crean Author

Right now I feel like I am having to fight for my right to call myself a Christian. I feel God speaking to me recently through my interactions with others, so I am sharing.  Some people both Christians AND non Christians may not like it, but to be honest I don’t care. I am trying to get on with my own spiritual journey and I have had trouble over the years BELIEVE me trying to justify to MYSELF why I would want to be called a Christian; and so whilst I have been trying to explain my point of view to other people just lately – I feel it has just been God speaking to ME. Why should I label myself a Christian? This is what I have to say…

I think you are just focusing on that word far too much, you are worrying about it, obsessing over it. yes it is a label, it is a NAME – but it is just a word to describe the body of Christ – his people and – how you see yourself. You ARE you and God made you YOU, the individual. He gave you an individual fingerprint and an individual personality and he stamped HIS LOVE for YOU, your individuality on your heart. He died for YOU. And he wants YOU to come to him “just as you are” – as YOU are – he doesn’t want a carbon copy “Christian” He wants YOU with all your individual quirks and lovely self – but he wants you also to be a part of HIS “body” which is his people, his church – his “CHRISTIAN” people – a label WE give for the BODY AND BRIDE of CHRIST that sets us apart as his most special, beautiful people that he has called INDIVIDUALLY through each of our hearts. We need to have a name to link us to God and what better name than that of the one who gave his life so that you might live forever! I am pouring all of this out of my heart and I feel like it is God writing this right now. I feel maybe he would be afraid that you are missing the point! The point is Jesus. We are not Jews, we are not Muslims, we are not Buddhists, we are not New-~Age crystal worshippers – we might understand about where some of this stuff is coming from but we can see it as being a part of the stuff that goes on in the physical world that God says – yes it’s all real, it’s all valid as in symbolic for certain things but don’t worship it – worship me through my son who I have given for YOU so that you will know how special YOU are to me. We are not all those other groups – those labels – we are CHRISTIANS because we are in CHRIST we are re-born in his image. I can’t keep going round and round trying to make you see through my eyes – I want that label – I WANT to be a Christian; I don’t want to be a Jew like my Mum’s family, I don’t want to be a Buddhist BUT I understand where my Mum is coming from because the old ways LED to the new ways, the NEW testament – that Jesus is the way, the truth, the LIFE. I understand the ways of Buddha and I think Jesus did too; so I meditate as I have always done, but now I meditate with scripture in my heart so that I can close my eyes and meet God in that quiet place, really go inside myself and come into his presence. I understand about the UFO and alien culture and I follow what’s going on there because I believe it is leading to the end days and they are part of the angelic battle – but I don’t worship them, I worship Jesus for saving us from the devil’s plan! To lead us away from God! So I call myself a Christian – a name Jesus would not have called himself – he was a Jew but he said the old ways were DEAD which is why he had to die, to bring us a new way THROUGH HIM and yes we probably could have labelled that Jesus movement in any way – but WE – his church, his BODY labelled it after his name so that we would always remember that through CHRIST EVERYTHING is possible and only through him can we live FOREVER! If you don’t believe that then I’m just spitting words into your face and not into your heart and I can do no more to say how I feel about it. This is how I feel and how I feel GOD is talking to me and through me for YOU. But if you don’t want to label yourself as Christian that is STILL YOUR choice – nobody is going to hate you for it – I love you, God loves you, stop worrying about a LABEL a WORD and get on with getting to know HIM.

Envisioning Poets’ Word-Garden by Todd Harris
http://marsocial.com/lindcove/

poets set free
word-garden worlds we see:

whirling rides, wind-bent trees
winding lanes, bumblebees
fabled fairies, spinning bobbins
flashing fair rides, reddish robins

of Fallen leaves, of fated love
what’s far below and miles above
darkest dreams of dread machines
waging wars with brave marines

of earthen space and frosted fire
tall whispered truths, drawn-deep desires
celebrating Excaliber’s magical birth
phantom oakwoods, middle earth

fruity sweetness, starkest cold
unchained wetness, well-mossed mold
cold-sweat courage, brainy brawn
reddish sunsets, fresh-greyed dawn

yellowed parchment, delicate lace
marble paths, immortality’s space
unbroken chains, young fool’s gold
fresh artful darts, tough trials grown old

curled orange petals, red crimson roses
frame double-helix-formed sorrows
fanciful phrases dream delicate poses
word-cast visions dream unmet tomorrows

Ripples in a Pool

Published August 8, 2013 by Laura Crean Author

(taken from the book ‘Vision’ coming soon!

I had a simple vision

of ripples in a pool,

they created division

like classrooms in a school,

I imagined each ripple

a universe – each one

and each universe a riddle

like a knot to be undone.

As the ripples starting radiating

out across the pool

I could see the spaces grow between them

and my curiosity was fuelled,

If each ripple was a universe

then what was in-between?

And would the space just keep on growing

until there was nothing to be seen?

If I could climb on board one ripple

and ride it to its end,

where would that ripple take me?

Would the limits it transcend?

I thought back to its creation

when it was just one single point,

just a force to begin motion

that caused the stillness to disjoint.

I thought the logical conclusion

was that the ripples would disperse

each separate universe an illusion

now just one dimension to traverse.

I sat beside the water

my daydream fading fast

and watched my lovely daughter

playing in the park.

She ran past me all excited

with a pebble in her hand

and I knew this just invited

a simple game unplanned,

to throw that little pebble

as hard as she could thrust

and watch the water tremble

with ripples as one must.

But then what she did next surprised me

as she took out a few more stones

and threw them all together

all those ripple making clones.

The ripples they created

were far from simple now

and I knew that they were fated

to create chaos – but how

did this effect my vision

with the ripples running wild?

I watched as each collision

made more ripples – and I smiled.

Life is not as simple

as ripples in a pool

and it takes the innocence of children

to remind you you’re a fool!
