I dreamt that I was a Vietnam War soldier. This dream occurred on the night of 11/26/2019. I was a male soldier surrounded by a lot of other male soldiers. The dream was in black and white and the uniforms were reminiscent of the Vietnam War era. However, part of the scene looked like it was on a battlefield, yet I was also in front of a childhood home.
The home was an older, rundown looking home. When I was younger, I used to recall memories of this exact house. It was the house I associated with the first memories I had of having anxiety. Anyway, here I was in front of this house on what looked like a battlefield. I was a Vietnam War soldier and surrounded by other soldiers. Then suddenly we were all shot and fell together into one large pile. However, I was the last to fall.
Reflecting on the Dream
The only revelation I had about this dream was that it could have been another adumbration of my death (in the spiritual sense). I should have written down the bible verse Neville Goddard mentioned about death in the spiritual sense. However, I did find this verse which resonates.
“The people dwelling in darkness have seen a great light, and for those dwelling in the region and shadow of death, on them, a light has dawned.” – Matthew 4:16.
Before I found this verse and as I sat here editing, I had a thought come to me about anxiety and struggle. A revelation came to me that the house stands for my childhood. When I first wrote this dream down, I did not think the house meant anything. However, if you take the dream coupled with what the verse above implies, it is much easier to interpret the dream. I could be wrong but, I did, in fact, dwell in darkness for 40 years of my life. Then, I recognized I was “awakening”.
The shadow of death here does not mean physical death but a spiritual one. We die to the old man and become the new man. The old versus the new is referenced many times in scripture. It is mentioned in Ephesians, Colossians, Deuteronomy, Matthew, Mark, Luke, John, and Judges.
I have not studied the verses. However, I have mentioned before that sometimes I receive revelations. They do not always come but when they do, it is often unmistakable.
