“…Yet darkness lets the stars shine bright.” ~J.L.W. Brooks~
It was two weeks since our return from Sedona, and the night before we were to receive feedback from my Angel’s interview with Team Dark. Surprise, surprise, I had a dream 😉
My Angel and I were being watched, where our adventures were being rolled out on a movie screen, one after the other. There was something special about this union, we were incandescent. It was a radiant, blinding glow, the light of true love, and we were being watched everywhere we went by this intruding dark energy. It was creepy.
We came to our episodes in Sedona, where climbing a path of red rocks, I realized that we were being followed and chased by an iguana-like reptilian creature. Running away, the creature kept getting closer to us. Ordering my Angel to run ahead of me up the hill in front of us, I stopped and took out the rose quartz from my pocket and began throwing it at the iguana. Throwing one rose quartz, after another, the iguana finally stopped chasing us.
A darkness lurked, so we needed to keep moving. Traversing through various landscapes, we arrived in Peru, at a place that was similar to Lake Titicaca but wasn’t… the water was a deep beautiful blue, and there were a number of islands made out of reeds. We needed to reach the islands, and in order to do so we needed to swim through the water. Jumping in, it was clean, and inviting.
Arriving to the first island, my Angel abruptly stopped and sat down, eyes glued to the water’s edge. Knowing that we needed to keep moving forward, I asked him why he had stopped, and he told me that he was waiting for something in the water. Confused as to what he was waiting for, I looked at the water and noticed that it had changed, significantly. It was no longer clean and inviting, but dark, and murky… My Angel looked up at the horizon behind me, and in that moment he wasn’t looking, was the moment I saw what he was waiting for…
A ginormous anaconda-like snake emerged from the water. There was nothing scary about it, in fact, this anaconda was playing! It had just eaten something relatively small, which you could see the outline of on its belly, and it was doing water tricks as it glided past us. Doing one last flip before diving under, my Angel’s eyes returned back to the water missing the anaconda by a millisecond.
“How could you have missed that?!” I asked my Angel… “Missed what?” he asked in return, completely oblivious to the giant monster that had just surfaced. Knowing that my Angel has a fear of snakes, he began taking off his shoes to jump in… as I told him that he wasn’t going to like what he was going to find, I woke up.
I did not understand the message of this vivid, powerful dream until I was at work and my Angel texted me to say that he had not yet heard from the interviewer, so he was going to contact them instead. Telling him that following an interview one usually waits to be contacted… for the next three days, my Angel continued to contact the interviewer with little to no response. When the interviewer did respond, he said that my Angel was still being considered, however, they were still assessing the other candidates.
Remembering the days of my many job interviews, I knew that this is code for : You didn’t fit the bill so we are looking for someone else who does. Suddenly it clicked. They were leading him on… in fact, it was almost like they were playing with him as they had already eaten, I mean, picked someone else… someone who was much smaller than him…
Just as I was debating in my head whether to tell my Angel about this dream so we could move on, my Angel was scrolling through Reddit, and decided to share with me an image which creeped him out. Interestingly enough, my Angel came across an image of a diver, in the Peruvian Amazon, taking a picture of a ginormous anaconda that had just eaten something and was sleeping at the bottom of the river… the timing of my thoughts together with my Angel stumbling on this “creepy image“… there are no coincidences.
The key to dream interpretation is to learn and recognize your own internal spiritual language. This language is based on the meaning that one associates with symbols and actions. This is something that is personal, and unique to the dreamer. Often times when one has prophetic dreams about others, 90% of the time the dream is really showing us something about ourselves.
Water is one of the most powerful dream symbols, which to me represents an element of change, a body of motion or emotion. When we first entered the water it was unclear, clean, and beautiful, much like my Angels intentions when we first learned about this opportunity for change. As we moved through the water together, and emerged to see that the water had turned dark and murky, it occurred to me that this was very symbolic of the opportunity no longer being the same opportunity from when we first jumped in. Awareness, over time, brought the underlying darkness of the opportunity to light.
I have also come to understand that my internal spiritual language translates reptilian energy into ginormous snakes 😉
Just like it was in my dream, my Angel, a rational intuitive, the divine masculine, my opposite, was unable to understand how I drew these connections. As the interviewer continued to tell my Angel he was still being considered for this job, my Angel could not see what I saw. Feeling that the message from my dream was loud and clear, it wasn’t until a couple of weeks ago that I learned my Angel did not get offered the job. They had decided to go with someone else with less experience, someone who was much smaller than him, so to speak.
My Angel was terribly disappointed, however, I knew that he was too good for them, inside and out, and they knew it too.
There is a saying that the will of God will never take you where the Grace of God will not protect you, and when God takes something away from your grasp, He’s not punishing you, but merely opening your hands to receive something better. Despite my Angel’s disappointment, I felt a strong comfort in knowing that everything happens for a reason, everything.
“One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the darkness conscious.”
