GOLDEN SAI DREAM
OM SAI RAM, Golden Bhaktas Of Our Beloved Lord Sai
I had such fabulous Darshan this morning in a dream with Swami, I just had to share this heavenly encounter!
I have been attempting to rise earlier in the morning. After getting up at 5 am and feeling so dead tired
throughout the day, I told Swami I would shoot for the Sathwic period and rise between 6am and 7am,
closer to 7am.
This morning I woke up a little after 6am, still feeling somewhat groggy I closed my eyes for a few more minutes, intending to get up by 7am. Then, I had the following celestial dream:
In the dream, I was in India inside what looked like a huge cafeteria filled with people. We were seated at tables with benches. I had a seat on the front side of the central aisle.
What Bliss! Supreme, Supernal Joy as our Lord emerged from a room adjacent to the larger one and gave us His celestial darshan.
Swami looked around, His blessed radiant face glowing like the sun. I hoped He would look into my eyes, searching for that unalloyed embrace, I zoomed in, finally - a sweet look. Then Swami shouted out something in Hindi or Telugu that began with a "K" I have no idea what it was.
As Swami exited, I jumped up and ran into the bedroom He had just slept in. There were golden tumeric markings everywhere. Over the bed, on the door and walls. The room was so pungent with tumeric and camphor I can still smell it coating my nostrils. I laid down in His beautiful divine bed, soaking up His pure, blessed energy. "I'm certainly in Paradise, I thought to myself."
There were other aspects to the dream that I won't go into detail about. But I had the strong impression that Swami wanted me to be more vigilant and not allow the world, its desires and temptations to invade my mind, heart and being. I think I will start applying tumeric to my body, it appears to have purifying and beneficial powers.
I looked up the spiritual significance of tumeric in Hinduism since it was so prevalent in the dream:
Om Jai Sai Ram!
