It’s amazing to me how God reaches into our lives in all possible ways He can—for instance, like a hug from a new friend, a rainbow over your house, a blip on your phone, a moth in your sink, or a book that seems it was written JUST for you in that very moment.
I love how we all share the seeds of all the gifts of the Spirit. But sometimes seed XYZ is lacking in someone who really needs that seed to sprout—and so God utilizes another person who has developed that said gift and can share it to provide comfort or knowledge. So, I think He’s all about connecting and involving people to help one another with their developed gifts—like my friend who shared this dream with JJ, who shared it with me in a moment of self doubt.
“Hi Jared, I’m hoping this message finds you, and then can find Nicole.
Nicole and I went to high school together and ran in the same circles but were never particularly close, although she always had a way of making everyone around her feel special and like they were her friend. To be totally honest I was always a little jealous of Nicole’s considerable talents, but I’ve also always admired her.
I have to share what just happened, although its very strange. I just had a really wonderful dream about Nicole. It was a lucid dream, and though I have many vivid dreams, this one felt different, and I’m compelled to share it, even though this is well outside my comfort zone. The details of the dream are probably unimportant as dreams are metaphorical, but I’ll tell you what I remember.
In the dream Nicole was in a wheelchair and was living kind of a hidden life as an artist. I was looking for her but I felt as though I was playing the role of someone else. She, as it turns out, had suffered huge losses and was very sad, even though she was greatly admired and successful. In the dream she was also looking for someone she had lost. I found her in my dream even though she was hidden from plain view because I recognized her talent rather than her person, and we sat down for a drink.
In the way dreams work I suddenly knew why she was so sad, about her losses, and that she was searching for someone. As we are sitting there the dream took on a different view point in that it seemed like I was watching a movie rather than participating. But she met a guy who she connected with and there was a huge feeling of hope in the dream. This wasn’t the person she was looking for, even though she thought it was. Through a series of very strange and meaningful connections she and this man found the person, a small child. Whatever the coincidences that lead them there were not the point of the dream and probably don’t even make sense, it was the feeling of universal connection that hung like a mist through this part of the dream.
When she found the boy I was hit with so much love it was overwhelming and I woke up. Like I said. So strange. The feelings were so intense though that I felt I needed to reach out to her. She has a purpose here, and she’s inspiring someone who really needs help right now. Or will soon. And I think she’s meant to embark on a journey to find that peace and love within herself. By the way, the hope and love was so strong and motivating in the dream, that by the end she could walk.
You might read this and just be able to dismiss it as a weird dream, and it probably rambles and doesn’t even make sense. If thats the case its ok, and the message can stop here. But I felt so strongly moved by the spirit to share with Nicole that everything will be ok, that God and and the universe are watching out for her, and painful and lonely as it is this journey she’s been on has in fact not been as isolating as it felt, and will lead to so much love and hope that it makes me teary.
I’m hoping and praying for good things for Nicole. We often don’t see or interpret correctly God’s messages and intent, but he lives her and has wonderful things in store if she can persevere.”
I just want to thank JM from the bottom of my heart for having the heart, mind, and soul to receive this gift for me. I love you SO freaking much. I really, really needed to read this–yet again–tonight. It provides me with hope that someday I will make a difference in someone’s life AND be able to walk again. Thank you for all the memories we’ve made together–even if I don’t remember them—I have looked at your picture in our yearbook with a smile. Always,
