I Had A Dream

It blew my mind

I wasn’t sure if I wanted to share this experience here on Medium. Then I thought — why not?

Last week I had a dream that confirmed what I had already surmised through years of inner experiences. Since my wife died in May I have seen her three times on the inner. All shortly after her death. She was young, bright, and beautiful. And still had that killer smile. I knew then that she was better than okay.

Even with this evidence, I wondered will I once again be with her when I translate. I finally got my answer about a week ago in the dream state.

In our young bodies, we were walking through what appeared to be a typical suburban neighborhood trying to pick out a home. We walked into a home we both liked in order to inspect it more thoroughly. It was fully furnished down to the kitchen cabinets being stocked. As she was leaning against me, I asked her if she knew who I was.

Her response was “No. But I love you.” This hit me so hard I awoke from the dream. So many realizations flooded me instantaneously.

All my worries about being with her again disappeared. I am already with her. Me, I, soul exists simultaneously on every plane of existence. And why not? Soul is God-like. Made in the image and likeness of God.

Then came the next realization. When she said she didn’t know me but loves me. Like a parent who does not know the infant she holds in her arms in boundless love. Like the very first time I met my wife and had those exact feelings before she spoke a word.

In our human state of consciousness, we struggle every day to grasp a reality that in our true state of consciousness as soul we recognize instantly.

This state of awareness does not come easy. In each incarnation, we are here to learn hard lessons. In our incarnations on earth, we learn quicker and feel more deeply during hard times. Earth is an advanced class for self-realization or realizing yourself as soul. To attain this state of consciousness takes many lifetimes and years of spiritual exercises and a growing awareness of the subtle hints provided for us every day. Those aha moments. They happen every day. Most people are completely unaware of them.

Then you occasionally get the slap in the face, wake up you stupid idiot scenarios. Like my dream. These moments are godsends. One question remains. Are you aware enough to recognize and act on them?

I am so filled with gratitude that this dream provided me after all these months. I’m sure I had to be in a better place to receive this gift. I still miss her terribly in the physical. That too shall pass. We are already sharing eternity.
