I don’t know why I get vivid dreams of people who are close to me and it pains me that I don’t know if I should give meaning to the dream or to just brush it off. I always dream of people either they are in a coffin or I am mourning for them or they are in the hospital and recuperating.
My dream about my father-in-law just took place in the morning before I woke up. It was so clear, so colored and yet very confusing to me. The dream has parallel connections to reality because my father-in-law is already being supported by a full face respirator which is helping him to breathe properly. He already had a cardiac arrest last Thursday after being in coma for the past few weeks.
I know he is not well. The doctors already informed the family back home but in my dream, he got better. He woke up from his coma, I was standing there and he even asked where he was and why was he there. And then I woke up.
I called my husband who flew to Manila last Thursday who was there in the hospital with my mom-in-law and just making sure that my father-in-law is not alone. I spoke to my husband and told him about the dream. I asked to speak to my mom-in-law and also told her about the dream. My mom-in-law said that my father-in-law might be saying goodbye in my dream. The doctors already informed them that the machine is the only thing that is prolonging his life. So, I asked her if she can put the phone next to my father-in-law’s ear just so I can thank him for all the good things that he has done for his family and us. I told him that we love him.
My mother-in-law said that my father-in-law had tears in his eyes. And it only meant that he heard me. I still have the burning hope in me that he will come out of this. I am praying for that miracle to happen if the Lord will allow it.
All of these reminds me of the pain and anguish I had felt when my dad passed away few years ago. I didn’t get to say goodbye. But I am hoping for a miracle. I hope the dream signifies hope or a miracle.
