I personally think it is difficult for some to find their true passion and value in life. I know I struggle at times with all the options we have to create our own destiny. I wonder if I am on the correct path to my true destiny. There are so many turns in the road of life it is easy to take a wrong turn, get lost or find you have reached a dead end. On your road of life you need to read signals that come from internal or external sources to help guide you.
Where is Bill
I was in hospital due to a very critical illness that caused me to be in hospital for 7 months 3 of which I was in coma. Had lost all eyesight and experienced other undesirable medical conditions due to illness. I was not sure if I was still in coma or had woken up when I talk about the following dream. Waking up from a coma is a blur into reality and it is not easy to distinguish coma life from awakened and conscience life; At least this transition was a blur for me. I had hundreds of dreams while in hospital. This dream is one of my very first.
First Battle - Accepting Blindness and Help
All of a sudden everything around me was pitch black and I was not sure why. I thought the reason I could not see anything was because it was a really dark night without stars or a moon. I felt dirt and small rocks between my fingertips as I explored the ground below me in the darkness. I reached to my sides and felt dirt walls very close to me. I then reached above me to make sure I was not completely enclosed in something and felt nothing but air with some relief. From my exploration I thought I must have been in some kind of trench. I had no idea how I had got in this trench which frightened me very much. As I laid in trench and stopped exploring I heard loud explosions all around me. Some were close and others were off in the distance. I could not see any flashes or any light from the explosions. I put my hands in front of my eyes very close and verified all I could see was blackness. At this point I figured out I must have went blind some how. I thought that some how I must have been dropped into some sort of a war or a battle and had become blind in the process. By this point I was very terrified and cold. I had no idea of how I would get out of the war or battle I was currently fighting without eyesight. My mouth was so dry it felt full of cotton and I was terribly thirsty. Even with all the explosions around me all I could think of was finding something to drink. All I could think of was crawling out of the trench I was in and trying to find water in the unknown darkness. As soon as I started out of the trench a person came to me and tapped me on my shoulder. He then put a canteen in my hand. With a caring voice he told me to drink some water. I could not believe my luck. Having this person find me in the middle of this battle I thought was a miracle. He let me have many long sips of this cool water. I was so grateful to this unknown person who came into my life to offer me help at this critical point in my life. After my drinks of the delicious cool water this very kind and caring person vanished just as mysteriously as he appeared.
What I Learned From First Dream
•I was embarking in a battle
• Accept help with dignity
• Never give up hope
•Fight professionally with care for what you want and need
In this dream I was given a sign I would be embarking in a difficult battle for my life, not to give up hope and pursue my dreams and they will come true. The road I have traveled so far has been marked with signs at some points, and no signs at other turns. I have even made some wrong turns; which are great learning opportunities. I am grateful I am not lost on the road of life so far. The best we can all do is to follow our heart and keep listening to your inner self.
Some things I do to keep following my path if I start to get lost.
•Do not make a move or turn without thought. Once you start down a path; you might not be able to go back.
• If you are overwhelmed and cannot make up your mind take a break, go outside and breathe some air; if you are able to get outside.
•Even if the road is rocky and hard to travel keep moving. You might be going up a hill and the crest is near.
•Remember to keep your long term goals in mind when you make any moves.
Has anyone else received any signals that guided you down the path of life? Any tips to help us not take that “wrong turn”?
We look forward to hearing from you.
