Yesterday I read HolyBlog’s article “Who your Guardian Angel is and what they do: 10 things you should know“; at the end, the author stated that Guardian Angels bring our messages to God and God’s message to us. I have learned in Islam that sometimes dreams can be messages from God to average humans; and, it is not just the prophets who receive true dreams. According to Rafiq A. Tschannen’s article “17 Rules of Islamic Dream Interpretations” dreams that keep on repeating are actually true dreams; and, that believers will receive true dreams at the end of the times (I am also interpreting this as “people receiving true dreams during tumultuous times” since Carl Jung also received dreams that came true during difficult times like the WWI).
I had an interesting dream today. Sometimes I get dreams that repeat themselves; and, other times I receive dreams that I see only once but that later come true. See blog post “Progenitor Dream Characters and “Big Dreams”: Lessons Derived From Evolution Of Carl Jung’s Dream Character Elijah And His “Big Dreams”. When I review these dreams, I feel that the story of David and Goliath is coming true. I feel like David who used a very small object, a stone, to kill a giant named Goliath. Thus, I killed the giant of ignorance!
Before I had this dream, I was thinking about my Guardian Angel. I wanted to play games with this friend of mine so I gave it a name so that I may relate to it. I chose the name “Cassiel”, which means Speed of God; see article Angelic Names for Boys and Girls. I said some prayer to God and told God to interpret my thoughts to Cassiel so that it may act accordingly. Then I fell asleep imagining that Cassiel is nearby—I was lying on bed while I was meditating. I had an intriguing dream after this!
I was at the back of a very large venue. As I walked through a corridor, I could see people wrapping up and cleaning some sites; others were busy managing things inside offices, kitchen, and laundry rooms. Pretty soon, I got lost; and, I could not figure out where to go. I asked for directions and soon a woman approached me. She pointed to a seat and asked me to sit on it if I wanted to. She was planning to push the seat to the exit. Laugh Out Loud! I denied this offer and asked her where the exit door was. She pointed in a specific direction. Around us many dream characters stood; they were part of the site management team. This was taking place inside another corridor that lead to a door that was almost blocked by dream characters, their trollies, and all other etceteras. I kept walking and managed to get away. Now I was in the main lounge where guests were seated. This place was mega huge! On one side, there were two sets of stairs leading upstairs towards the main entrance. On the other side, the area was so huge that it was hard to figure out what exactly I was looking at; I think there was a cafe to the left. As I walked further, I came across a guest speaker. He is mentioned in the article “9 People Who Defended The Rights Of Muslims In 2016″. He has spoken out a lot after 9/11 in order to defend the Muslims and prevent Islamophobia, which are the topics that interest me a lot. He was reading something, like a newspaper or an article. As soon as I noticed him, my gaze automatically moved towards the venue’s entrance. There was someone standing there; and, he was pointing something towards this speaker. I swiftly moved near the speaker; I felt that the guy who was standing up there moved closer to us although I did not clearly see him do that. Then he threw some sort of large needle-like thing at the speaker by using some sort of gun. I reacted and hit this very large needle with something. It fell away from the target! He threw another one of these. I hit it back again. This continued for a while; and, it felt like playing ping pong. I know that I exhausted the attacker! Meanwhile, the speaker just sat and enjoyed the show.
Now I know that there is a huge significance attached to this dream. For example, I don’t know how to play ping pong that well. But, in this dream, I was dodging these horrific looking needles at a tremendous speed. This reminds me of the name I gave to my Guardian Angel, Cassiel; Cassiel means “Speed of God”. Another possible interpretation of this dream is that I am supposed to protect this particular speaker; and, then God will somehow create an opportunity to do this. I wonder what would happen if I changed my Guardian Angel’s name to emphasize a trait!
