A Transforming Dream

By Debbie Milam

"Yes, there is suffering in the world, but there is also overcoming it." —Helen Keller

My prayers and love are with all of you in harms way from Hurricane Rita. May divine protection and light surround each of you. So many have experienced great loss this year. I was one of those people. What I am about to share can transform the way in which you look at pain and suffering.

During the past month I have been releasing and healing all of the emotions I had experienced from a year of 7 deaths, a move, the hurricanes causing financial loss in my husband's business, my daughter's health challenges, a family member's deep emotional problems and physical pain from a severe car accident. I prayed deeply for clarity, for peace, for healing. Then my prayers were answered in a dream...

In the dream I was floating in the vastness of the universe. Three angels welcomed me and stood by a beautiful doorway and said, "He's been waiting for you." As they opened the door, before my eyes was God in all his divine glory. With open arms and an enormous smile he embraced me saying, "I am so glad you decided to come."

He invited me to sit on his lap and then as a wise father would say he asked, "Why are all of you so serious." I said, "Have you seen what is going on in the world, have you seen what is going on in my family." God smiled and said, "As real and as deep as the pain you are feeling is, the problems you are facing, the problems in the world are merely a blip."

A bit confused I asked what a blip was. God then pulled out an enormous book that showed every event in the history of mankind. Every collective and personal tragedy. As he showed me the greatest tragedies of mankind, he told me to look carefully and then he said, "Watch, it is a blip," and he turned the page to reveal the healing and the joy. He said, "As quickly as the page turned, is how quickly the healing can occur."

He said, "When you think about all of these tradegies, what is the worst thing that can happen?" I said, "We would all die." He then said in this wonderful Mel Brooks voice, "So what would be so terrible, so then you would always be with me."

With that he opened a portal and showed me a place of perfect peace. My children, millions of other children and all of my loved ones where together singing and dancing among the rainbows and dancing with God. He showed me the joy, the light, the healing that is always available.

Then, the dream became more joyful and the message even clearer. Sheryl Crow came bounding in singing I'm Gonna Soak Up the Sun, I'm Going to Tell Everyone to Lighten up. God stared deeply into my eyes and said, "This is the key, lighten up, fill with light, have fun, be grateful for every blessing, be joyful, laugh, soak up the sun, realize as real and as deep as the pain is it is a blip. Become conscious and aware of all the little and big blips in your day that are keeping you from fully experiencing the joy and breath deeply in the light, knowing that this too shall pass."

I have not been the same since the dream. I have felt more joy, more reverence, and more light than I have felt in years. My deepest prayer for you is that you too will rediscover the peace and joy that is always available to you. Remember to lighten up for it's just a blip.
