The following dream is from May 3, 2012 which was the 26 day of the Counting of the Omer. I hope it will bless and encourage the reader.

“Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in your sight, O L-RD, my rock and my redeemer.” (Ps. 19:4)

May the dream and interpretation be found worthy and true.

I am walking alone up a hill. Their are groups of 2 or 3 people walking down and up the hill on either side of me. I have a feeling of safety in the middle of the road, not like one would in real life. However, when I try to get over and walk on the sidewalk like the others around me in order to be with others, I become afraid; I sense that there is something in the hedges that would like to grab me. So I move back into the middle of the road, and as I walk, the sky is progressively getting darker; I am trying to walk up the hill, but my legs feel heavy, and I can’t walk at a very fast pace. Everyone I see going the opposite direction is wearing blue scrubs. As I continue walking in the middle of the road, I come across a woman I seem to know also in blue scrubs, and we begin to walk side by side; then we notice we are behind a big group of people also in blue scrubs. I get the sensation that they are all around us not just in front, we are a part of the large group all walking at different paces. I notice the sky again, and say, “Why is it so dark outside? Isn’t it daytime?” My companion only shrugs her shoulders as we continue up the hill.

Once we get to the top of the hill we turn around and head back down. The sky is even more ominous now. The sky is turning red, like blood, and the clouds above our heads are swirling like they are being stirred. Suddenly, I hear a siren and my companion and I run toward the ambulance and I say, “G-d please help us and protect us!”

There are two people near the ambulance. One is in what appears to be a body bag on a gurney. I am not concerned about that person, but the other person is sitting upright on another gurney, and she has a blood pressure cuff around her arm; she is also dressed in blue scrubs and she wants to help with the crisis, but she can’t because she is injured. I notice that her eyes are constricted. I have the understanding that she must wait several minutes before she can get up to join the rest of us in helping with the crisis at hand.

The scriptural confirmation I got for this dream was Psalm 24:3-6:

“Who shall ascend the hill of the L-RD?
And who shall stand in his holy place?
He who has clean hands and a pure heart,
who does not lift up his soul to what is false
and does not swear deceitfully.
He will receive blessing from the L-RD
and righteousness from the G-d of his salvation.
Such is the generation of those who seek him,
who seek the face of the G-d of Jacob. Selah”

The hill is the hill of instruction, just like Mount Moriah and Mount Sinai. As we ascend we gain wisdom, knowledge, and understanding. The journey is long and hard, and we can’t always go as fast as we would like.

The people who were ascending are the faithful “servants in blue”. Blue is a symbol of purity and heaven. It is also the color that Hashem chose for the tassels of the four cornered garment, signifying our identity within His holy nation.

Some are ascending and descending on the right, some on the left, and some are in the middle of the road. The left side in scripture is associated with the physical, and the right with the spiritual. The safest place to walk is in balance between the two. The groups of people on the sides of the road were dwindling, but the numbers of the individuals in the middle of the road grew larger as the sky became darker. I believe this could mean that as the return of Messiah draws close, there will be more and more people who embrace a more balanced faith walk. In the beginning I was walking alone, I tried to move over to walk with the groups of people I saw, but it was dangerous. It was only when I was in the middle of the road that I gained a companion. She joined me on the journey. How often do we try to fit in with a group we know we don’t belong in, when we need only do what we know is right and then G-d will bring someone alongside of us to walk with us?

Everyone who went up the hill came straightaway back down the hill. From this, we see that we are not meant to stay on the mountain top in all the fullness we’ve attained, but we are to run down the hill in order to share the good news we’ve received in order to help others.

We must be alert and awake in the midst of crises, or we are as good as dead just like the one body on the first gurney. But just like the woman who was sitting up on her gurney anxious to do good works, if we are unwell, then there is nothing we can do but be patient and wait for Hashem to do the work of repairing us. Only when we’ve been given the eyes to see what we we are to do will we be ready and able to join our brothers and sisters in helping others.

Shalom and blessings,
