Dreams, Visions and Faces
Who hasn't reflected on a dream upon awakening, one that stays in the memory? While some dreams do not particularly affect us and we quickly move on to the demands of the day, others won't let go. So we continue to concern ourselves with them. The question can be posed: What are dreams? Are there different divisions and classes within them, and what are they there for? What can we learn from them?
At all times, there have been attempts to interpret dreams. The dreams of the pharaoh, which were interpreted by Joseph, are a famous example of this. In the New Revelation Jesus tells us what dreams really are and what they mean.
We learn that all our dreams do not get lost. Rather, as we have experienced them in us, we will find them again and recognize them as our own. That means we should devote a certain amount of attention to dreams.
During normal sleep, the soul dreams without a connection to its spirit and the images seen show its inner conditions. If we write down our dreams, we will gain a picture over time of how our inside life is provided. Upon wakening, the dreams which appeared real can be interpreted quite differently. These dreams stem not from the soul, but from the good or bad spirits surrounding them. Good spirits cause a strengthening of those dreaming. In this way, those dreaming sometimes foresee future events.
Dreams, visions and faces: here are a few examples from the original text.
A huge Prediction
[Gifts of Heaven GH.01.40.07.24.04] See, all that you have ever thought and dreamed, all that you think and dream now, and all that you will think and dream in the future will not get lost forever. As it once proceeded in you, you will essentially find it again and recognize it as your own and be pleased or saddened. It was necessary to touch on this for future understanding. Whoever doesn't know and see that all of creation is circulating, living and weaving in him, he cannot understand the reasons for his impulses, desires, and thoughts.
Dreams and their interpretation
[EM.01-067,03=Earth and Moon] This secret eventfulness usually consists of visions which, for good people as well as bad ones, can originate in heaven or in hell. So it is necessary to gain insight and the right behavioural measures so that one knows how to behave with similar secret, often hardly believable appearances.
 The visions are of a different kind. The most usual and well known types are dreams at night.
 Here it can be asked: Who is really dreaming and what are the images of the dream?
 In normal sleep, just the soul is dreaming. And this dreaming is nothing other than a confused looking of the soul at its own conditions, which have no association with each other. It is like the images in a kaleidoscope which change with every movement and never appear again the same way.
 The reason for this viewing of conditions without a connection is that the soul itself is located apart from any connection with the outside world, as especially with its spirit.
 These types of visions have no other use for the soul than for it to remember after such a dream how it is in an absolute condition.
 If the dreams are summarized and written down, the soul can obtain a good portrait of itself. These dreams show it how it is within itself and how its main desires, its striving and its whole condition are created - and will be created, when it is located completely outside the flesh.
 This type of dream is brought about by neither heavenly spirits in the soul nor ones from hell. Rather, it is its own product of the soul which remembers more or less or not at all. With a normal man, this depends on how his nerve spirit is created. If he tends more toward the soul, the person will remember almost every dream exactly. If he tends more toward the flesh and sleeps with the same, he will have little or no memory of his dreams. This is usually the case with those who are sensual and coarsely materialistic.
 But it is completely different with the bright dreams, in which it seems to the one dreaming as if the experience was real. Upon awakening, it is difficult to tell if it was a dream or reality. Such visions or dreams do not belong to the soul but to the spirits surrounding them, whether these are of a good or bad sort. If they are the bad kind, the soul, and with it the body, will awaken from such a dream exhausted. But, if these visions are the work of good spirits, the soul and body will be in a strengthened condition on awakening.
 Both types of visions are admitted only for use and not to the detriment of the soul. In the bad visions, the soul should find a warning and, in the good ones, strength.
 These visions become so lively because the spirits which cause them remove the nerve spirit from the material and connect it with the soul. In such a condition, the soul has the feeling of being natural, because it is connected with its nerve spirit and is thus more forceful in order to absorb and retain the stronger and more meaningful images in itself.
 What the somnambulist sees also belongs to this class of inner visions. This is like, as has already been explained, viewing in the so-called 'sulphur ether anaesthesia'. These visions have a certain association and a certain order, because the soul is told the truth by the spirits surrounding it.
 In such visions, future events are often presented to the soul by the spirits. This is not difficult for the spirits, since they know the order of things which must irreversibly follow each other. Additionally, they themselves are the performers of this order.
 It is as if one of you came into a strange house. He will not know what the man of the house will do today, tomorrow or the day after tomorrow. But the head of the household will know because he must be attending to his business affairs. But if he tells you what he is going to do, then you will also know it. So you cannot know what the spirits will bring about in this year. This is because you are still strangers in the house of the spirits. But when the spirits make it known to a soul, then it will know what is going to happen. So that the spirits can make something known to the soul, it must first be prepared by them, and this preparation is what was shown above.
 So there is much to consider from this vision; however, nobody should trust in it like the pagans at an unchangeable fate. For all that, no one should be affected in his free will. If someone seriously wants something different than what the spirits have shown him in this vision, he may turn to Me, for the matter to be different and it will be different. It will become different so long as this person believes and trusts- this is why he has turned to Me. For I alone can change all things at that moment.
 And if I myself would say: "See, tomorrow I will do this and that!" But you if you take hold of love and trust in Me and ask Me to stop this, I will do as you ask and it will be a disadvantage for no one. For I can use all relationships, conditions and occurrences and a thousand people must serve me like one, and a day must be like a year and a thousand years like a day.
 Thus such visions which are common should shock no one too much. If they are good, no one needs to be frightened and, if they are bad, they can be changed. Naturally, whoever believes firmly in that and expects no more strength from Me than from his visions, to him it may be said "fiat!" (may it happen!).
 The human mind is so weak that it often devoutly infers future events from simple dreams - and people make definite assumptions, attributing to certain happenings in dreams, events which have to take place after certain dreams. The interpretation of the dreams and its certain consequences is extremely stupid, as is the person who makes the assumptions. There are water dreams which foreshadow the death of a relative or acquaintance. Fire is thought to bring either a lie or joy. Bread, manure, and marriage dreams are thought of as a prophet of death in the family. If one dreams of bees, there is going to be a fire. A dream about ants means there will be a flood or the person has many worries. Dreams about grasshoppers, crickets and flying birds mean that war is imminent. There is a lot more silliness, not to mention the lottery dreams.
 These images, which represent the soul while dreaming, are counterparts of the soul's condition, but in no way prophets of future events.
 What does it take for any one person to have so many relatives, friends and acquaintances as there are days in a year (sometimes ten times as much) and, out of hundreds, for some to die in a year? So, if there is a dream about water, bread, manure, or marriage, this dream must have applied to the deceased, whether he died two weeks earlier or two weeks later. All other dreams are similar. Somebody had dreamed of grasshoppers - he was half afraid and half hopeful of a war. But, because nothing changes in his country or the neighbouring ones, he goes and carefully reads the newspapers. And, look, he reads in one article: "War between English sailors and their colonists with natives in New Zealand!" He hits his forehead and says seriously: "See, my dream was fulfilled. I recently (NB in Syria) dreamed of grasshoppers; that means war and it is war in New Zealand." If our reader had gone to a little more trouble, he would have come upon several wars at the same time in the papers.
 You see, such faith is actually a form of evil which can damage the soul, because the soul gets used to letting the trust in Me go away at such moments. And the more such prophetic vision doubts take root in the soul, the more they weaken the faith, the trust, as well as the love for Me. If such simple dreams belong to the soul, then the foolish interpretations belong to a bad spirit vermin. This being creeps into the flesh at such opportunities like the blowfly sucking spiritual dream visions. It coaxes the soul with its silly prophecy, which is nothing other than the refuse of such evil spiritual flies. This is often plastered over like parlour windows with flies, which the sun's rays cannot penetrate- as the rays of My sun cannot influence the soul, because it is plastered over with stupidity.
 I am giving you this so that you know what to make of the dreams and other types of visions which will be discussed further in the following (in regard to truth). Each appearance has its own corresponding reason and purpose. But there should be no talk of imagined stupidity. Thus we will continue.
Dreams - a Mirror our Soul
[GGJ.01.37.08] But I said: 'Whatever the soul sees in a dream corresponds with its nature. If the soul moves within what is true and good as I taught you to believe and do, then he will in dreams also see what is true, and from this he can take a lot of good things for life. But if the soul is doing what is wrong and evil, then he will also see in the dream what is wrong and make evil out of it.
 Since you however move within what is true through My teaching and therefore also follow Me, your soul also shall have seen only the true, from which he can do much good.
 Whether the soul is nevertheless also capable of grasping what it sees in a dream is another matter. Because just as you do not grasp and comprehend what you see in the outer world in which you live by day, just so the soul does not grasp what she sees in her world.
 When however the spirit shall be reborn within you, as I explained to Nicodemus in Jerusalem when he called on Me by night, then you shall grasp and comprehend and completely understand everything.' With this all are satisfied and move back.
