A few months ago I had a dream where I felt a presence in the room. It was so real. In the dream it felt like there was an angel at the right foot of my bed and roaring sound. Also, a presence on top of me that felt it was the devil. It was scary! When I hear a clear word I could make out from the corner where the roar sound was I heard "JEWEL...I AM JEWEL". I woke frightened. After examining this dream and talking about it, I felt JEWEL was my guardian angel helping me wake up from the fear of the presence on my comfort or... I had someone else suggest that JEWEL was an ancestor trying to get in touch with me. Here is the dream below.
Angelic Dream #1 Date: Sept. 2006 Time: 5: 15 a.m.
Tony got up for work. I got up with him. After he left, I went back to bed and pulled the comforter up to my neck. I started contemplating if I should go back to sleep or just get up for the day. I started to fall into a half awake half asleep feeling. I knew I was dreaming at this point and felt a presence in the room. In my mind I was thinking of an angel in my dream. I started to feel pressure on top of the comforter at the bottom of the bed on my feet. It started working its way up my legs with heavy pressure. I heard a whirling wind sound at the end of the right foot of the bed. I was scared! I remember hollering "SHANNA". The pressure got heavier and moving up my body towards me... I was getting more scared and heard words come out of the whirling wind sound. It was "Jewel" or "I am Jewel". I yelled out loud in my sleep "NO" and woke up. I got up for the day scared to fall back asleep. I went to work telling Renette. We were freaking out. I came home that evening still intrigued by the dream. I got on-line and begin to research "Angels, Jewel, etc." I came across a bunch of Angelic web sites. I dove in and begin reading for an hour. I came to a paragraph that read at www.askanagnel.org:
"There is a jewel nature to your soul. The jewel of your soul. The quality, the nature, the shape, the tones and the colors, the very vibration, the very emanations of this jewel reflect your soul nature, and the gifts that in this lifetime you have chosen to embody. We amplify the jewel nature of your soul. We amplify the highest, purest, truest emanations of your soul which are in alignment with Creator and with creation. We amplify your ability to connect with the gifts that you carry within you. We work with you to open your willingness to experience your own gifts within, to see and know them as pure expressions of love, to hold them, both sacred and true, and pure, and yet to share them with no holding. With no reservation. With no concern of how they are accepted. We stress this last part, that you have no concern, that you have no expectation, that you have no demand upon those whom you give your gifts to."
My conclusion to the dream: Through my soul searching, I've questioned a few times if we should expand the shop or should sale out and move with Tony to the Hill Country. I feel like this was an answer to follow with the expansion. That the gifts given to me are the Jewel nature of my soul. The creativity is a God given gift, and meant for me to share it through my business. Also, I am in "The Word" and hungering for the knowledge of Christ, and growing in Christ. I feel like Satan could have been the presence on the comforter and my "Guardian Angel" was the whirling wind who spoke "Jewel" to wake me up from the dream. This may sound crazy, but it happened... It happened to me. So until you walk in my shoes... Think what you want!
Devilish Dream #2 Date: September 2006 Time: 5: 00 a.m.
It was right before Tony had to get up for work. One of my life long fears has always been something under my bed. I still at 35 run and jump in the bed at night. Tony cracks up. Well, in this dream it began like this... I was laying on my back. I felt the comforter on my right left flip over to the left leaving my leg exposed. I then started sliding down the side of the bed in slow motion being pulled to the ground right next to the bed. Pulled to my fear. I was reaching towards Tony (who was still sleeping) and started to try and holler his name. When I started to holler "Tony" I could feel the voice in my gut and coming out of my mouth and it sounded and felt like a deep devil voice. Tony turned and looked at me. It was not Tony. He had a very very scary face. Brown/yellow protruding front teeth, evil eyes. He pulled me up the bed next to him, and turned and put his tongue in my mouth. It was not Tony's tongue. It was like a thin wiggly snake. I woke up FREAKING out! I just snuggled next to Tony and started to fall back asleep. I started dreaming this same dream again. The cover flipped off my leg. At this point I knew in my dream it was happening again. So I begin to holler only is sounded like mumbling to Tony... Thank goodness he heard me, cause he yelled "Shanna your talking out of your head". The sound of his voice brought instant comfort to me. I woke up and stayed up!
Tony kept picking at me that day talking to me with that devil voice... he is a hoot. Once again... It happened. Sounds crazy, I know it was a dream, but truly weird!
I can't believe I didn't submit this first. My Angelic Dreams / Devilish presence began soon after my grandpa's death on Labor Day weekend. I took this photo 3 hours after his burial. My grandpa had a look in his eye at me in the hospital out of all 35 people that were there. Also, my Aunt was on a missionary trip in a village out of state and told me she woke in the middle of the night with me heavy on her heart about death! SCARY! She said everything is going to be ok though. I went to a psychic... Oh my gosh I can't believe I admitted that, because I don't really believe, but was relieved I admit when she told me my life expectancy is 76. She said I will have a few stumped toes and bruises in life. It's funny be cause my little mind is always busy busy.
I took this picture 3 hours after grandpa's burial. Because I saw rays (a whole other story) that I relate to as angel wings. I pulled over on a busy rode and took it with a cell phone. I took off driving again texting this picture to everyone in family on my cell phone. They started replying back freaking out so I pulled over to examine the picture and can see 2 angels. 1 on top blowing horn and 1 on bottom with a sword. i still don't know what it means and why the dreams have started since Grandpa's death, but I believe him and grandma are together now.
Hopefully some comments might give me some direction on this.
