I’m hesitant to even write this on here, but I feel compelled to. I’d like to know your opinions on it.
Do you believe that dreams can have significance today? The bible says God used dreams/visions in the past to communicate His will. I have strange dreams nearly every night and have seldom given any value to them as having meaning in real life, except for the deja vu dreams I had frequently when I was younger.
Here’s why I’m asking, though:
Last night I dreamed about my father and his mother (who’s been gone for many years now). She was saying how badly she wished “we could just live a little longer” and mentioned something about douglas fir. My dad stood up and said “I know, Mom, but I haven’t been able to smell a douglas fir in many years!” They both hung their heads sadly and indicated in the dream that meant my father was going to die soon.
I woke up crying, and I prayed if it was important, that I would please remember it in the morning.
My first thought when I woke up this morning was “douglas fir.”
Through researching those words on the internet, I found out there is a douglas fir tree essential oil that is used for treating lung infections and breathing problems, along with inflammation.
Here’s what makes things more strange:
On the phone, my mother told me she dreamed last night that she was at a grave site with a small girl who was trying to bury something. My mother asked her why she was burying the stuff, and she said “They NEED it! They NEED it!” Then in the dream, a relative came up to my mother and told her that my father had died.
When I woke my daughter this morning, she said she had a nightmare last night. (She rarely remembers her dreams.) She dreamed that she and my father kept running and hiding from a man who was chasing them. In the dream, the guy wanted to “get” my father because he had overheard the man’s secret conversation with someone.
I pray constantly that God will help my family figure out what we need to do to increase my parents’ health — that God would show us if there’s any specific treatments they should pursue to regain their health.
My father is suffering with chronic congestion in his lungs and head. My mother has severe health problems which often seem to be related to inflammation in her shoulders and spine. All of this is exactly what people claim the douglas fir essential oil helps.
I don’t know if there’s truly any significance to these three dreams in one night, but I’m going to order douglas fir essential oil for my parents today. I’ve personally used essential oils in the past to cure minor health problems, so I don’t see how it could hurt to try this. Some essential oils, like lavender, have given my father relief from his lung congestion and helped him sleep better.
I would love to hear your thoughts on the following three questions:
- Do you think it’s crazy to find meaning in dreams? Maybe it’s just because my family is concerned about Dad’s health that we happened to have these dreams in the same night? Go ahead and tell me what you truly think; I can take it!
- Has anything like this ever happened to you? Please share your stories about dream experiences.
- Do you have personal experience with essential oils? Let me know how you have seen them affect health conditions.
