Finishing the Race

I had a dream I was a bird in a race. I came in 6th out of 8, but I was just happy I finished.

A few years later, I learned that Paul in the Bible says, "I have finished the race."

I Googled what this meant and found this on gotquestions.org:

“Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize. Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training. They do it to get a crown that will not last; but we do it to get a crown that will last forever” (1 Corinthians 9:24-25). Paul’s exhortation is that believers should be as focused and dedicated as those ancient runners in the games. Our motivation in serving Christ is much higher; we “run” not for a temporary crown, but for an eternal one.

In his letter to Timothy, Paul is not commending himself for having “run the full distance” (TEV); rather, he is simply describing what the grace of God had enabled him to do. In the book of Acts, Paul says these powerful words: “I consider my life worth nothing to me, if only I may finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me—the task of testifying to the gospel of God's grace” (Acts 20:24).

So, by declaring “I have finished the race,” Paul is telling Timothy that he had put every effort into the work of proclaiming to all the gospel of salvation. He had completed the course set before him; he had left nothing undone. He was ready to cross the finish line into heaven.

In a race, only one runner wins. However, in the Christian “race,” everyone who pays the price of vigilant training for the cause of Christ can win. We are not competing against one other, as in athletic games, but against the struggles, physical and spiritual, that stand in the way of our reaching the prize (Philippians 3:14).

Every believer runs his own race (1 Corinthians 9:24). Each of us is enabled to be a winner. Paul exhorts us to “run in such a way as to get the prize,” and to do this we must set aside anything that might hinder us from living and teaching the gospel of Christ. The writer of Hebrews echoes the words of Paul: “Lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith” (Hebrews 12:1-2).

Spiritual Meaning of Rock

I've lately been dreaming about standing on black rock by the ocean or with waterfalls in New England.

In a recent YouTube video posting by Brigitte Parvin, she told viewers they would be landing on ground where they would be safe and balanced.

This made me think of the black rocks that I had been standing on.

I looked up the dream meaning of rock online and found "feeling solid, stability, foundation, lasting forever."  (I also looked up waterfall since that had been in one my dreams -- meanings included beauty, grace, goals and desires.)

I was reading Mary C. Neal's book To Heaven and Back and she wrote she was sitting on a rock "and was having a conversation with an angel who was sitting on a nearby rock" (page 97). I then went to her web site where she reported this was not an angel, but was actually Jesus, but she felt too uncomfortable to say this when she wrote the book.

The rock image reminded me of a passage in my sister Karen's book, Heart of Miracles. When she had a dream of Jesus walking to her, she reports that she was sitting on a rock (page 37).

I then looked up rock in the Bible on openbible.info.

"The Lord is my rock and my fortress."

"Who is a rock, except our God?"

"On this rock I will build my church."

"...be like a wise man who built his house on the rock"

"They drank from the spiritual Rock that followed them, and the Rock was Christ."

I recently had a dream I was teaching a class and put in a video. I was surprised when I watched the video that it was about the Virgin Mary. A secretary then asked me what my course was about so she could enter it into the computer. At first I didn't know. Then I realized and said it was about Jesus.

Amazing Grace - Prayer Does Help Shooting Victims

A few weeks ago, before the shootings in Paris and California, I started helping shooting victims in my dreams. These were real experiences.

I had no intention of doing this.

The first time, a black man was shot before my eyes.  We were in a house, and I was hiding under a chair under a blanket, terrified that I would be seen and also killed. It was my job to say The Lord's Prayer to comfort this man as he died. I do think it helped.

A week or so later, I was praying for a female shooting victim. In this instance, I was sitting in a circle with others and we were singing "Amazing Grace" for her.

The first event especially was traumatizing for me and I asked God for another assignment, one that would still be helpful but not traumatizing, perhaps working with children. In real life, I started working at a school, and in dreamtime, I gave children chocolate Santas.

Helpful Excerpts from Joel Osteen's The Power Of I Am

When you honor God, the person he has designed for you, the right one, will come across your path as though drawn by a magnet. You don't have to worry. You don't have to play games and convince someone to like you. If they don't like you, let then go. If they don't celebrate you and see you as a gift, a treasure, as one of a kind, move forward... You keep being your best, right where you are, honoring God, and God will do for you what He did for me. He'll cause you to be at the right place at the right time. Those divine connections will come across your path.

Bloom where you are planted... Life will go so much better if you will be content in each season, content when you have a lot, and content when you don't have a lot... You have the grace you need to enjoy each season... You have to be satisfied where God has you right now. Again, it doesn't mean you settle there and never expect anything better. It means you don't live frustrated, always wanting something more.

If you will stay in faith and don't get discouraged or talk yourself out of it because it's not happening on your timetable, God will get you to where you're supposed to be. God knows what He is doing.

Many people are praying for a miracle... We have to realize that we can become the miracle they need... Be aware of who is in your life. They're not there by accident... You can be the answer to somebody's prayer... As you become a miracle, God will give you miracles.

Manifest Your Destiny -- Wayne Dyer

Here are some lines from Wayne Dyer's Manifest Your Destiny book which I found helpful:

"Replace thoughts about your experiences with the experience of prayer. For instance, praying in this sense can be a sentence such as 'Sacredness guide me now' or 'Sacred love flow through me now' silently recited instead of thinking thoughts."

"A profoundly important Native American saying is: 'No tree has branches so foolish as to fight among themselves.'"

"Infinite patience is a sign of trust, and it calls upon infinite love to produce results in your life. When you let go of impatience, you are aligned with God force, and all of the anxiety that tells you what is lacking and missing in your life is gone."

"Infinite patience produces almost immediate results in your life. You become free when you relax your insistence to have it now, and you increase your awareness that you actually do have it now, already, even though it may not have shown up as you would like it in your immediate surroundings. As an infinitely patient person you know you are already where you want to be, that there are no accidents and all that appears to be missing is nothing more than an illusion perpetuated by your ego."

"Practice a silent expression of gratitude when you start to see your desires manifesting from the universal source. A very private, simple 'Thank you, God, I see you working in my life and I acknowledge with love my appreciation for all that you bring to me' is all that is needed."

Seeing Ghosts

I have had the blessings of interacting with angels, fairies and unicorns in my dreams. These dreams are real.

For the first time, I am now seeing dead people who are not my friends or relatives in my dreams.

The first two times I was terrified although the ghosts are not doing anything scary. Now I am used to it.

Theses ghosts look completely like normal people, they are not transparent.

Interestingly, my sister has seen ghosts in the hospital but she never told me what they looked like. After I had my first 2 dreams, I heard someone ask her what ghosts looked like and she had the same experience as me: They look like normal people but you know they are ghosts.

The first time I saw a ghost, it was a middle aged woman who I saw in a mirror but her physical body was not in the room so I knew she was a ghost. She was not bad in any way but I was scared.

The next time, it was an Asian girl around 7 years old and she had bangs. I just knew she was a ghost and "didn't belong here." Again, I was terrified.

Last night I had 2 visitors. One was an actor from a long time ago who asked me, "Do you remember me?" I did. I wanted to give him my sister's book.

Then I was hanging out with a young gentleman with curly brown hair. I didn't know he was dead and neither did he. I think we were watching TV together. I then left the scene and a small white dog came up to me. He was really cute and wanted to rub the bottom of his paws against the palms of my hands. It was really sweet and I could feel the roughness of his paws.  I then saw some dirt around the paws, like how they get stuck in the hooves of a horse. This made me realize that he was the dog of the man and he was uncared for because his owner was dead. The man was angry and in denial he was dead. Then me and another person tried to electrically shock the man back to life but it was too late.

I don't know why the deceased people are coming to me. Ghosts are real but at lower vibrations than angels and fairies so I don't know why my perception adjusted so I can now see them.  Maybe they want help crossing over which I don't think I've done with these 4 people. I did try to bring that last guy back to life.

I have helped people cross over before in the Hallway of Lost Souls. http://www.diaryofalightworker.com/2013/07/soul-travel-afterlife-and-lost-souls.html
