DreamGreat Art 492: Joseph’s Dream

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.

What does a dark robed figure and a group of 12 people mean in a dream?

Dream 384:Do not judge me because I do not follow you blindly

This is a statue that’s in Prague, however, I once had a dream with these beings in it that looked a lot like this.There were about 12 of these faceless robed beings sitting around a table in a large stadium. Thousands, maybe millions of people gathered there to see them but no one spoke a word. Everyone there was marked. They were waiting on the newcomers to come down the aisle and pledge to them but I left the building. Some people I knew were outside roaming around as if they were lost and when I yelled out to get their attention the town began to crumble. I could then see these faceless hooded beings watching us from the tops of the buildings as they swayed. Their followers screamed in pain as wire ran through them, lifting their bodies into the sky. So for me, when I see this photo of this beautiful looking sculpture/statue, I remember that dream. The town twisted like Inception and became a dark maze for us to travel through, trying to find our way out. — I was on the right path and suddenly knew where to go but then I woke up.

My Interpretation

The dark robed figure is a classic shadow symbol. The number 12 is significant. If it were my dream I would think of the 12 disciples or 12 people being on a jury, which would make me wonder if religious or legal issues were involved, whether you are facing some challenges on these levels.

If I’m reading the dream right, it sounded like the people were marked, but you were not and you left. The followers met with a grizzly fate while you escaped.

For me, the dream I believe is predicting that you will avoid bad outcomes by not being a mindless follower of cults whether that be of a religious or a political nature.

This is a complex dream that could be taken at different levels. The question for me is whether it is describing what is currently happening, or whether it is giving advice about the future or both.

Sacrificing an Instinct for Higher Purposes

No Eat Meat

imagesDream 184: Sacrificing an Instinct for Higher Purposes

A 36-year-old woman dreamt that Inca Indians were capturing sheep for ritual sacrifice.

Dream 184 Interpretation

The classic South American tribe with religious overtones ensures that archetypal forces are in play.  After hearing this, I asked her if there was a habit she was trying to give up.  The basis of this question was that an animal part of her, an instinct, was being sacrificed.  An animal instinct or habit was being given up.  She replied that she was giving up eating meat and becoming vegan.  Her subconscious mostly approved and saw her giving up meat as equal to a religious sacrifice.
