Carl Jung used the term “luminous” to describe the quality of particularly vivid dreams that fill the dreamer with a sense of sacred awe and wonder. This picture of Angel Gabriel telling Joseph that Mary was going to have the child Jesus comes close to that inspirational sacred awe that I believe Jung was talking about. This photo of this great masterpiece of art is from the National Gallery in London, England. When I look at this picture, I get a very expansive, otherworldly, and sacred feeling about it.
This depiction of events that would change the course of world history is profoundly moving at a subconscious level, particularly for Christians, because of conscious and subconscious beliefs held by them. It is this vaulting above and beyond human reasoning, that is striving to propel mankind to a higher plane of existence, that makes luminous dreams and art beyond the scope of rationalization.
Jeremiel Is the Archangel that Helps You Understand Dreams
Angels appeared in dreams in the Bible. An angel appeared to Joseph 4x prior to the birth of Christ (Matthew 1:18-25). There is an archangel to help you understand your dreams. Jeremiel was one of the seven primary archangels devoted to helping people understand dreams. His image is often indistinct as in the image above so that it has a dream-like quality.
There are certain types of dreams that fill the dreamer with a sense of sacred fear and wonder. These transcendental dreams were called “numinous dreams” by psychoanalyst Otto. They are closely related to vision dreams in which the person feels like it is closer to being an experience than a dream.
These vision dreams often occur after the death of a loved one. The person feels that the deceased communicates, often telepathically, a message that is meant to reassure the dreamer. Often in these vision dreams, the dreamer feels they can see, hear, smell and feel the deceased. This often takes place in the context of the dreamer feeling like they actually physically hugged the loved one who has passed.
Some of these numinous dreams involve angels and images of Jesus. I know a dreamer who regularly feels she visited heaven. Communication with spirits and guides who transmit messages about the dreamer’s life destiny is not uncommon.
The memorable thing about these dreams is the striking iconic imagery which can involve symbols which the dreamer can not dismiss. For instance, one such dream could involve the dreamer being shown his tombstone by a glorious angel. On his tombstone might be the moving image of the dreamer defeating Satan in battle by helping the poor and downtrodden.
The lighting and tone of these dreams often convey a spiritual white light that defines the sacredness of the moment. The dream memory becomes emblazoned in the dreamer’s mind as setting the destiny of what she is meant to accomplish in life.
You will hear persons talk about doing “spiritual warfare” in their dreams in which they respond to demons with the Word of God. These dreams often strike deep fear into the dreamer. They frequently view their lives as a spiritual struggle they are fated to endure.
It is often a realization of the will of God which can be sacred fear. It is a destiny from which they feel there is no escape. Wherever you go, there you are.
I plan to release a book in 2016 regarding alternative and some conventional methods of dealing with chronic illness so that it goes into remission.
Reike, prayer, exercise, angels, medical aides, the Tao Te Ching, Buddhism, Tai Chi, saints, meditation, physical therapy, Tarot cards, the violet flame of St. Germain, light work, Jungian dream interpretation, psychic guidelines, diet, and the philosophy to considering medications, and relationships will be some of the topics covered.
With a chronic illness, by the time you contract the disease, you are so far behind in the struggle that you have to throw everything at the illness that you possibly can. This will include both Eastern and Western approaches. Dreams were an important part of the multi-modal treatment approach I used.

At the height of my worst multiple sclerosis (MS) symptoms, I asked my wife to have a dream about how I should handle my MS. The next morning my wife described a dream in which an angel sang four rules that I needed to follow:
(1) Be non-judgemental. This rule was primary and covered 70 percent of what I needed to do to improve my symptoms. (2) Show inner beauty with the emphasis on emotion. (3) Mirror the earth (follow natural cycles like getting up with the sun). (4) Glorify the transfigurement. This was the most spiritual part of the message. The emphasis was on the product and not the process. I believe now, in hindsight, that it meant be thankful for the positive changes and the resulting increase in function.
Recalling these rules, which I lived by, gives me chills even today. It is more than fifteen years later and the MS is in full remission.
