Yesterday I was pondering a dream that I had recently. It was a lucid dream. I do not have many of those. So when I do, I pay very close attention. I was reading the Bible in the afternoon and studying the Hebrew and Greek true meanings of the psychological meanings of the words I was reading. I dozed off, and entered the dream.
I was on top of a building. There were people up there with me. There was an overlay over everything that existed in this dreamworld. That overlay was gold. It was like a filter in the sky. There were also transparent particles floating down the sky. I looked around and recognized that I was in a dream. The overlay of gold helped me to understand immediately that I was inside God. Literally, I knew within the depths of my heart that I was inside the being called God. This dream was perfectly symbolic and spoke to me in the form of answering a question that I’d been asking and contemplating over the past few months. It was showing me that God actually is everywhere. Nothing can exist outside of God. And I knew this within the depths of my soul in the dream.
It came to my attention that I could do whatever I wanted. Everything was so beautiful. There I was, on the top of a building contemplating the beauty of God and His creation. At the edge of this gigantic skyscraper that I was atop of, there was a great ladder made of black metallic material. It had one thick cylindrical rod spanning from the height of the building going all the way down to the earth, and it was positioned directly in the center of this ladder. Protruding from each side of this poll were foot and hand steps, and on the outside of the ladder there was nothing. It was similar to a child’s jungle gym where there is a pull down the center and on the top left is a rod. And then down a foot into the right was another rod. And down the left of foot was another rod. There were people climbing up and down this ladder.
I am afraid of heights. I stood dead center on the top of this roof of this gigantic building and contemplated that fact. Knowing this was a dream, I thought to myself, I could jump if I wanted to, but I don’t like that feeling of falling in a dream. So I stood there and watched as others ascended and descended. I contemplated that very fact that I was in God and all things are possible from within this dream.
When I awoke I immediately wrote down this dream. I was so grateful that God had given me the answer that I was seeking that I asked for. He gave me my own proof that what I believed was true. God is awareness. God is light. Everything exists inside God and nothing can exist outside God. We exist as the focal point of God so that he can experience his creations, awareness, from a position where we believe naturally that God does not exist. We are in a dream just like the one that I had. And yet, we have complete control over the stream. All we have to do is wake up just like the dream. All we have to do to become aware of something in this physical reality and internal reality. It also showed me that when I die I will just wake up somewhere else.
In the dream, God was represented by the gold overlay. That was how I could understand what he was trying to show me. That was how he explained to me that he was answering my question. But there was more that he was trying to show me. There was more that I could not have known and less I had another “witness”.
The day of this dream I shared it with a couple of friends.
I was so happy about this dream and it had so much meaning that I decided to do some more research. I opened up my Bible application and searched the word ladder. What I found was astonishing and it revealed so much more to me. In Genesis chapter 28, verses 10 - 19, there is a story called “Jacob’s Ladder”. I had never read it before. It goes like this:
“Jacob left Beersheba and set out for Harran. When he reached a certain place, he stopped for the night because the sun had set. Taking one of the stones there, he put it under his head and lay down to sleep. He had a dream in which he saw a stairway resting on the earth, with its top reaching to heaven, and the angels of God were ascending and descending on it. There above it[a] stood the Lord, and he said: “I am the Lord, the God of your father Abraham and the God of Isaac. I will give you and your descendants the land on which you are lying. Your descendants will be like the dust of the earth, and you will spread out to the west and to the east, to the north and to the south. All peoples on earth will be blessed through you and your offspring.[b] I am with you and will watch over you wherever you go, and I will bring you back to this land. I will not leave you until I have done what I have promised you.”
When Jacob awoke from his sleep, he thought, “Surely the Lord is in this place, and I was not aware of it.” He was afraid and said, “How awesome is this place! This is none other than the house of God; this is the gate of heaven.”
Early the next morning Jacob took the stone he had placed under his head and set it up as a pillar and poured oil on top of it. He called that place Bethel,[c]though the city used to be called Luz.”
I was playing the part of the Lord, the “I AM”, which is exactly what Neville Goddard teaches us. We are the Lord. The word Lord is generally translated as Jehovah, which literally means “I AM”. In a dream, we are no longer this garment of flesh but we exist only perfectly in a dream world. The Kabbalists say that we are more awake in a dream than we are when we are awake in this world.
I was standing on top of the heavens. The latter stretched from the height of the top of the building to the ground which was so far down that I feared climbing down. And there above it stood the Lord, which was myself. The word Bethel, when translated from the Hebrew, means “house of God”. It symbolizes the consciousness of God. This was exactly what was shown to me in the dream, being that I was inside God, inside of a dream. The dreamer was myself, and therefore, I was shown that I am God.
The dream showed me that God is my true self. It showed me that our dreams are the medium from which God communicates with us perfectly, we only need decipher it properly. The dream showed me that I have dominion over this world, just as it says in the Bible. We are told in Genesis that we have dominion over this world. That was my exact inner dialogue when I stood on top of the building. Just as in the dream, this Scripture tells me that “I am with you and will watch over you wherever you go and I will not leave you until I have done what I have promised you.” That is exactly what God does. “Every place that the sole of your foot shall tread that have I given unto you”
Now, this is not the first piece of Scripture that I have dreamed of before I ever read it. But this one was quite profound. My inner self, myself in the dream who was awake, is the perfect symbolism for me in this physical world. It was with my own voice as well, which is exactly what Neville Goddard says. “if we know that he years us and all that we ask of him then we know that we have already received the requests that we have made of him.”
Our inner self is God. Our subconscious is God. We have complete and total dominion over this world. This piece of Scripture played out perfectly even to the extent that I woke up and knew to myself that God was everywhere, and that I AM God. “How awesome is this place! This is none other than the house of God; this is the gate of heaven”
God is all imagination, and God is man. This dream showed me that I AM God, being that I played the part of “The Lord”. I knew I was dreaming, I knew I was inside my mind while I laid on my bed, and yet, I inadvertently said, “I am inside God.” Not knowing what I meant until days later, this dream was explaining that THE DREAMER IS GOD, and the Dreamer is Joseph Michael Alai. The dream is YOU. You are God.
