Training For New Norms
A twelve-year-old boy I spoke with recently received a word of knowledge in a dream about what was troubling his friend as well as a word of wisdom that gave strategy to address it. Those gifts of the Spirit activated in his dream are marks of a new norm for him. Rather than a random one-time experience, those gifts are already active in him for his lifetime purpose. His dream started with a black dog and a white dog. That setting indicates a conflict in the soul, the black dog (which represents negative or wrong thoughts and feelings) was bigger than the white dog (which symbolizes right thinking and feelings and behavior.) In the dream he heard someone say that his friend was crying and upset because someone had brought a Buddha into her life. This twelve-year-old did not know dogs can refer to the soul in symbolism. I doubt he even had a working definition for the word “soul.” It is also highly likely he had no knowledge of the culture and beliefs of Buddhism. Yet these symbolic elements were in his dream, so that reveals the need for training and equipping him for new norms in dreaming in the future.
