Lion in the Sky Dream
Have you ever had the experience of waking up in the morning feeling so tired that you just need to have a bit more sleep? This is what happened to me one morning, so I lay down again, uttering a few prayers. I wasn't aware of having fallen asleep again, even though my eyes were closed, but that is when I had a dream...a very memorable dream. It was the kind of dream where you feel that you're still awake somehow. Those kinds of dreams are called lucid dreams and we often have them in the early morning hours when it seems that we're hovering in that "twilight zone between deep sleep and an awakened state. This was my dream:
I was standing on the grass next to a sidewalk lining a city street. Marcel was behind me and I seemed to be standing higher; maybe I was standing on a kind of platform. I was looking up at the sky which was filled with clouds; not storm clouds but white, fluffy clouds. And there were lots of them. Suddenly they parted and I saw a big, beautiful, golden lion loping through the sky from left to right. He was magnificent! Then, without my seeing how it happened, the lion had become the finger of God, touching a man's hand, as in Michelangelo's painting except that the image was reversed; God was reaching out with His right hand from the left-hand side (so with the back of his right palm was facing me) reaching out to Adam's open right hand reaching out to God from the right-hand side. It seemed as though God wanted to clasp the man's hand.
Then I was in a car. I seemed to be able to see really well out of the windows, as though they were bigger than usual. A whole bunch of young people who reminded me of my students from over 30 years ago were standing on the sidewalk. They didn't believe me because they hadn't seen anything. They were shaking their heads, smiling in disbelief and touching their finger to their heads with that gesture that clearly states "crazy!"
I kept insisting that I had truly seen this amazing sight in the sky! The sense in the dream was that many people had been told there would be an apparition but that not many had seen it because of their unbelief.
I had that dream on May 23, 2017, almost 3 1/2 years ago and this is the first time that I share it publicly. Marcel and I feel that with all the unfolding events of the past year, now may be the time to put it before you for your own discernment.
I understand somewhat the different symbols in the dream but I really don't know what the whole dream means. Perhaps it is one of those dreams where the revelation will come after the fact, if these events do in fact transpire. But the dream isn't literal; it's highly metaphorical.
There are three important elements in the dream. First there is the lion. Then come the two hands; God's hand touching a man's hand. Then there is the last scene where I'm in a car and people think I'm crazy.
