Dream 10- Multiple Hooded Figures
Dark as it is, it is also a message of hope over 40 years.
Dream is from 1973.
Circumstances surrounding dream
My son has just been born and was about 5 months old. I was working in a restaurant at the time, as (already) a single mom.
My future did not look too good at the time, but I worked each day to make it better.
I am at work in the restaurant. I go into the kitchen to get some things.
As I turn around to leave, I am faced with about 20 dark hooded figures in my path.
I think to myself, this is not good.
I thought I had done something wrong.
At the time I thought the figures represented “past lives” coming back to haunt me. I had some New Age influence back then.
I had no real idea what any of this meant, but they were definitely in my path and in my way, and I was not able to leave the kitchen.
It has taken 40 years before I started to finally understand the dream. So I share it now.
Each figure did represent an obstacle and a serious danger in my life path.
With time, one by one, each figure did what it intended, to cause misery or danger, then left my life.
Ironic also that, now I am retired, I find myself “in the kitchen” not really free to “go out” and do what I want.
So my end was predicted in the dream as well.
I remained, maybe damaged, but still working hard to make my future better.
They could not stop me.
They hindered me, and hurt me, but they could not make me give up.
Little did I understand, 40 years ago, and also over the 40 year period, that only with God’s help could I have survived these hooded creatures and their evil intent.
There were malicious attacks against me.
But 40 years later, I am still here.
Recently, January 2013, I had another dream about a hooded figure. I understood it to be the Angel of Death watching others and myself travel in a bus down the road.
Again, it did not look good, until now.
YHVH God, in His Divine Providence and unending love for me, has protected me already about 19 times from death and destruction over 40 years.
That is approximately an attack every 2 years.
This is the last hooded figure to be overcome.
I know now that it may harm me in some way, but I will survive and endure.
It may take everything I have, as other hooded figures did in the past, and force me to start over, but I will still remain when the trial is over.
Sometimes, when God shows us our obstacles, we interpret them as defeats and losses: A time when God seemingly abandons us.
It may seem like our doom is predicted, but it does not have to be so.
It could be that God is sending us through dangers and trials, to purify us, and to teach us that He is there for us. After all, we could not survive these evils unless He is there to pull us through it.
I posted this also, because many are having dreams of end times, seeing themselves in camps, or in captivity or in danger.
We have to see these dreams not as warnings that we are doomed, but visions of obstacles that we will have to overcome.
37 Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.
