I grew up with dreams being a normal part of life and using them to see what they were saying in terms of good and bad fortune ahead as dreams were part of my culture, but the work of Belsebuub explains and puts this realm and the information it contains in the precise context of self-knowledge and spiritual awakening and I have seen from my own efforts in pursuing self-discovery how dreams are truly and directly about that.
One dream, going back a while now, that I feel highlights how dreams can be so precise and convey how real dreams relate to our day to day life, was at a time where I was looking to understand why a situation I had become aware of at my work had become in the state that it was in.
I had stepped into a work situation full of problems, which I struggled to fix these since I was hired to help in this regard. During the day I worked hard to try to understand the situation, looking at the nature of the job, what had been done and tried to do my best to try to resolve the problems that I could see, but I couldn’t understand how the problems began or what caused it in the first place, which was important for me to get to the root cause to address the problems properly.
I was used to paying attention to my dreams to learn from them about myself and one of those nights, a few weeks into that job, I had a very lucid and vivid dream where I was at my work place and I was cleaning the floor, but the mess was everywhere and in ways that were beyond what I had available to clean it up.
I then saw a careless incident cause the place to be damaged and people came from outside to the incident which they had witnessed taking place. The person who was the cause of this incident in that dream was someone I recognised from my work, but in the dream the colour of their hair was strangely different.
A few scenes played out giving another aspect of the situation which I didn’t understand. I woke up with a feeling that this dream was trying to give me an insight into the cause of the problem that I was trying to figure out, and something about myself, but as dream symbols can have several meanings I didn’t understand all aspects of it. I didn’t take the time that morning to reflect and study what I was being shown as I had to get ready to leave for work, but it left an impression on me.
As I arrived at work, the first person I saw was the person I had seen in my dream and to my surprise they had changed their hair colour overnight; it was exactly the same colour that I saw them with in my dream, and completely different from their normal hair colour. It was a shock to see them with this new hair colour; I wouldn’t have expected them to dye their hair, let alone to that colour. As soon as I saw their hair I instantly remembered my dream from that morning.
I felt that by seeing the change in the person’s colour of hair in my dream and in real life, it was like I was being given proof of what I had been shown in my dream to be the case, as if it was saying that ‘what we were showing you is true and you will see it by seeing this’. This helped me to verify that there was a reality to the message of the dream.
Unfortunately, there was a lot more that I could have gleaned from that dream to help me through the situation I was facing back then and about myself had I paid more attention to the symbology that was shown to me.
I learnt from that episode that it is valuable and important to learn from what is being shown in my dreams, to pay closer attention to the details and to also make use of these dreams and study them well since a lot of effort was made to show me things to help me.
Sometimes it takes a long time before I can understand them and at times it takes the event itself to come to pass before I can see the connection between the dream and daily life, however I also know that this also depends on my outlook and my personal efforts to learn about myself, which I have seen makes a big difference in understanding dreams better and for the purpose they are given.
Here is a very helpful interview with Belsebuub in which he explains about dreams and how they relate to our life.
