Loving Plea

In 1994,  I had a dream of an entirely different nature than any other dream I had:

Unchained Melody Dream

The dream opened with myself being woken up to a knock on my door.  I had my robe on and frantically searched for clothes and a comb to make myself more presentable.  The knock persisted with some urgency.  Finally I gave up my efforts and opened the side door even though I was not as prepared for visitors as I'd like to be.

A cheerful man with balloons in hand greeted me. "Congratulations!" he shouted, "You have just won the prize!" A small crowd behind him cheered.  A helicopter landed in my yard, right behind them.  Loads of money was thrown out of the helicopter onto my doorstep.  It floated in the air down to the ground in an extravagant way. Of course I was very surprised. I felt relief at not having to worry over necessities and not having to scrimp and save for little things my husband and I wanted.

The scene switched.  The man, crowd, and helicopter disappeared, as if they had left already.  I was walking through my yard.  There was the brand new body of a car in back of my yard.  It was beautiful and perfect in every way. There was no engine in the car. This did not perturb me at all.  The Lord spoke to me but it was not in words so much as in my mind: "This is for you.  The engine is already taken care of."   I knew I was done with something.

I walked around to the front of the yard.  Through the trees, I saw the Lord in the form of a man.  Smiling and friendly, He looked like He had appeared in other dreams, but this time he was clearly a  young 'fiancee'.  He approached me, holding some flowers.  Then items began to appear in front of me They even crowding through the trees of the small swatch of trees there.  They were not 'necessities'.  They were all romantic in nature--flowers, racks and racks fine clothes for myself and for my children, and cute little animals for my children to play with.  As He came closer, these gifts increased and multiplied (especially the animals)  more and more and more.  I was overwhelmed by the multiplying scene of gifts in front of me.

The Lord did not speak anything to me.  The tune of "Unchained Melody" was loud in the air during this part of the dream.   It was still hanging in the air as I woke up.

"Unchained Melody" was not a song I am familiar with. I knew the name of the song but not the words.  My husband had it on a CD because it was one of his favorites, so I got up and played the song.  The words of the song said it all. I just sat there and wept as I listened to this sweet ballad:
Oh my love, my darling
I hunger for your touch
A long, lonely time
Time goes by so slowly
And time can do so much
Are you still mine?

I need your love
I need your love
God speed your love to me

Lonely rivers flow to the sea
To the sea
To the open arms of the sea
Lonely river's sigh
Wait for me
Wait for me
I'll be coming home wait for me

Oh my love, my darling
I hunger--hunger for your touch
A long lonely time
Time goes by so slowly
And time can do so much
Are you still mine?

I need your love!
I-- I need your love
God speed your love
To me!

I lived a very practical, pragmatic life and usually do not have fine clothes. I don't usually even buy clothes new.  I didn't care for flowers, because you spent money to buy flowers-- These things were things that at that time I thought of as extravagant and almost silly.

But I understood immediately what the Lord was saying to me.

This dream could just as well be under the "God Heals Trauma" section, but it had to be put here because it is the last I am sharing under "God As Therapist".  Without realizing it, I had closed my heart to anyone, including the Lord--ANYONE who would attempt to be too romantic or charming.

As for the money and the car at the beginning of the dream.... I won't overanalyze that but I do know that money has been used in dreams from the Lord before for me, and my best guess is that it represents either blessings or the power of the Lord in a general way.  As for the car, well we never had a new car.  We avoided monthly car payments by buying old cars.  My husband often fixed their engines as they broke down, and we always had an "extra" working old car just in case every car we owned broke down!  Both my husband and I had the distinct impression that some people sneered at us for driving around our junk cars, peeled paint and all.   I cheerfully joked to my husband that I should  paint pictures on one of our drab, gray stationwagons, because it was about the ugliest car I could ever imagined.  However, we could not afford the special paint for such a project at the time so I never carried through.

Most of the time you understand the symbols 'interpretations' to a part of the dream while you are still in the dream.  It was clear in this dream that the outer body of the car represented my 'character.'  I had worked hard to improve myself and I could finally rest from these particular labors. We all know the engine of a car is the most important part anyway.  Just as the Lord promised in a previous dream, He took care of that.

This ends the "God as Therapist" section of "Diary of Dreams"  which is part of our Prophet 'Un'School

"Patching The Wound"

Therefore, I will now allure her, and bring her into the wilderness, and speak tenderly to her.  From there I will give her her vineyards, and make the Valley of Achor a door of hope. There she shall respond as in the days of her youth, as at the time when she came out of the land of Egypt. On that day, says the LORD, you will call me, "My husband," and no longer will you call me, "My Baal." (Hosea 2:14-16 NRSV)
