An adumbration of the Promise and death of the old man? That is the question that arose after having an exciting dream on October 21, 2019. I was in what looked like a café or a fast-food restaurant. Everything was white; all-white walls and floors, much like a very sterilized hospital room. In this dream, I was with a man and had my arms around his waist.
I heard a shot and noticed that a man had was shot. He had fallen to the ground, and he laid there with his skull open, revealing half of his brain. However, he was not bleeding, at least not that I remember seeing. The gravely wounded man kept repeating something. I think he was saying, "Am I dying," or maybe "I don't want to die."
The world Golgatha in the bible is translated as "skull," according to Neville Goddard. The Promise is that God will bring forth from our body a son who will be "born, not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but of God" [John 1:13].
Was this dream an adumbration of the Promise and the death of the old man? I don't know for sure. Perhaps, the reason that part of the man's brain was showing signified truth revealed. The fact that God is all imagination, that the birth from above "The Promise" will occur in every one of us, and we will all awaken. The gentleman saying "Am I dying" or "I don't want to die" could represent dying to this old man and awakening as God. Perhaps the questioning that comes from realizing that when one awakens, there is so much that falls away, and we die to the former self (the former states of consciousness we embodied).
I did not receive an innate knowing of the meaning of this dream. However, I have an understanding of death when it comes to awakening. I also understand the importance of the birth from above, as described in scripture, and based on Neville's account of his experience(s). I have not had the same experience yet, though.
Throughout the dream, I kept feeling the sensation of wind entering my head. The feeling of the wind is a sensation I've felt (heard) many times before. I also kept seeing rapid images at the end of the dream. They seemed to be moving at warp speed through space. I could not make out what any of the pictures were, but they looked like cards. The cards were moving so fast. It reminded me of looking at a film reel.
So, what was this dream trying to reveal to me? Was it an adumbration of the Promise and dying to the old man?
