No threat from gun?
« on: January 04, 2016, 10:26:13 PM »
Hi Tony and all,

I don't have dreams with guns often, unusual for me. This scene keeps coming back and bothering me as I don't grasp what its meaning exactly about me.
I was in a street alone, few cars going up and down, the odd pedestrian. Houses lined the street. A car went crossways at the junction at end of the road and stopped there, blocking anyone coming into the road or out. A man trying to exit the road got out of his car quite annoyed that he couldn't continue his journey. He had long dark hair about 30. He pulled a hand gun out and was waving it around at other people directing them. I somehow knew he would not threaten me and he didn't, he made eye contact but I was the only person he didn't point it in the direction of, I was in the scene but felt like I was also a viewer externally. I had no fear at all of this man, it was weird like I knew something about his nature and that he was quite peaceful although the scene may not have looked that way to others.

He ordered the other people into a building and they went because of the threat from the gun. He wanted me too but there was no threat and no force but I felt obliged to do so in the calmness of my mind. I went in and he was teaching us, lecturing like we were students, we were all seated at desks. Once he finished he told us to all write down what we understood about him. I saw that my paper had disappeared and told him so and he came over and said it didn't matter and to use this newspaper he handed me.
I thought it odd as there was hardly any space to write but found a strip at bottom of the newspaper. I sat and thought about what I would write and decided that I wouldn't try to write down what I understood of him as too difficult to write but that I would say it out loud instead from my heart. Along the lines of him being a peaceful person by nature etc. I felt no love connection for him but compassion knowing his true self.
I did not recognize him in the dream as anyone I knew and couldn't understand why I knew what I did about his truth.
(must point out that although he held the gun and was waving it around he didn't actually point it at anyone directly and threaten, it was the mere having it that the other people found threatening)

The fact that it keeps replaying back to me tells me there is something I should understand of this that I haven't yet.

Many thanks

Dawn – An Indian wise man used tell a story to his pupils about a powerful snake - a cobra. The cobra had listened to the wise man talking telling people how to attain peace in their life, and the cobra asked him how he too could live such a life, because people shunned and kept away from him. The wise man, Ramakrishna, told the cobra that if he stopped biting people he would have a more peaceful life.

The cobra took that to heart and from then on he never attacked anyone. But instead of having a peaceful life the local youths now realised that the mighty cobra was harmless and threw stones at him until he was a sorry sight, bleeding and bruised.

When Ramakrishna visited the area again he saw the condition of the cobra, asked him how this had happened, and cobra said he had stopped biting people and look what happened. Ramakrishna smiled kindly and said, “Dear Cobra, I said do not bite people, I did not tell you not to hiss and show your teeth.”

The man with the gun, who was obviously a wise man, didn’t bite, but showed his teeth proving that he could bite if he wanted to.

Your wonderful dream says that you have the ability to get people’s attention and do as you ask them because – if you talk and act as if you – have a gun – are in command and so people will listen to you.

When I trained as a nurse, I had to tell people what to do, and so I spoke as if I meant it. It was a great lesson to learn – not to be uncertain. So I think your dream is educating you for something you are being led to do – confidently.

Thankyou Tony for sharing that story and how you put it about what it means for me fits quite perfectly for where I'm heading. Healing is suddenly the top priority role being asked of me by my guides. I did a healing quite recently, in the way it comes naturally to me, not methods that I've experienced being taught, straight after there was great kerfuffle about it from my guides, in a good way.
So yes I agreed to take the plunge but have had a few knocks along the way in different areas I worked in and became very submissive in areas I do know about for the want of no conflict. Maybe it's the fine line I need to find.
As I said it fits perfectly and is incredibly helpful for me to take that advice in the beginning of this new part of my journey.
Many thanks, helps in more ways than you know.  :)

Dawn - “I learned this, at least, by my experiment: that if one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours.”
