Q:What is the symbolism in the dream catcher?
Hello, The dream catcher is used by native or indigenous peoples to symbolically be a protector of a person who is sleeping and having bad dreams. It is supposed to filter out the bad dreams AND WARD OFF EVIL ENTITIES. There is A SPIRITUAL SIGNIFICANCE I WANT TO EXPLAIN. Spiritually the soul is asleep or unconscious. While the soul “sleeps” it is susceptible to being invaded by other entities that prey on the vulnerability of the sleeping soul. When I say other entities I mean wandering semi-conscious souls who seek to feed off sleeping souls. They do this because the soul is a VOID that constantly SEEKS TO FILL OR SHALL WE SAY FEED. This is “done” by entering into the realm of consciousness of the sleeping soul. What I mean is they enter the soul. These entities “hunt” based on whatever they desire to “feed” on.The soul they desire to feed on must satisfy their “appetite”. This is very SICK and the nature of this is DEMONIC. This is where the whole phenomena of “nightmares” and bad dreams ORIGINATE. Basically the dream catcher is a form of protection from these entities. (notice I am not using the word SPIRIT) THESE ARE NOT SPIRITS AT ALL! THE SPIRIT DOES NOT FEED ON UNCONSCIOUS SOULS! Please do not think these are JUST dead people or spirits! Can this be the soul of a dead man? YES! Can this be soul of a living waking human being? YES! Nothing is DEAD in the sense that we think. On the contrary everything is ALIVE! I have so much more to say on this! THANKS FOR ASKING.
LET GO. LIVE AND LOVE
In midst of all of this Hurricane Sandy (now sensationalized) MEDIA FRENZY. I could not help but ponder this: WHY DO WE AS MEN SUFFER LOSSES? WHY DO WE LOSE THINGS AND OUR MOST PRECIOUS LOVED ONES?
At once I perceived the answers to all my questions directly from THE spirit. I now understand that loss is man’s (our) fear of losing ourselves (or the self) We believe people and things are an extension of the self. Which is a false belief. Therefore because we believe this we ATTACH TO PEOPLE AND THINGS..WITH THE FALSE BELIEF THAT THIS IS ACTUALLY OUR SELF.
WE AS MEN LOSE OURSELVES IN PEOPLE AND THINGS. TO THE POINT WHERE THERE IS NO SELF. THE PEOPLE AND/OR THINGS DEFINE WHO WE ARE. WE BECOME SELF ABSORBED.
I have often spoken about this as attachment or CLINGING on the Radio Show. CLINGING IS ACTUALLY FEAR OF LOSS. We cling to people and things because we are afraid that we will lose OURSELVES. Once again we have defined our self in that which we cling to.
Man suffers loss to teach him to VALUE HIS OWN SELF. TO EXPERIENCE LOSS IN THE WORLD IS AN OUTWARD EFFECT OF THE INNER SPIRITUAL CAUSE: FEAR!!
WE AS MEN MUST LEARN OUR SELF WORTH. THE UNIVERSE IS A TEACHER. WHEN WE LEARN TO LOVE OURSELVES NOTHING CAN BE LOST OR TAKEN. ON THE CONTRARY; WE WILL GAIN ABUNDANTLY because now one can appreciate and VALUE what has been lost. WHICH IS REALLY THE SELF.
It is understood that MEN DO NOT CLING BECAUSE OF LOVE. FOR LOVE IS LETTING GO. MEN ARE AFRAID TO LET GO BECAUSE WE ARE EMOTIONALLY CLINGING TO WHAT WE BELIEVE IS OUR SELF.
THERE IS A FEAR OF BEING NOTHING OR INSIGNIFICANT; WITHOUT ACCEPTANCE OR HONOR FROM OTHERS. WE SEEK LOVE EXTERNALLY DIMINISHING THE VALUE OF OUR TRUE SELF
LETS US LEARN THROUGH LOSS THE TRUE VALUE OF THE HUMAN SPIRIT. LET US LEARN TO LOVE , LIVE FREELY AND LET GO. TO LIVE IN FEAR IS TO BE SELF- CONSUMED. THIS OF COURSE IS THE BREEDING GROUND FOR SELFISHNESS. FOR A SELFISH MAN IS A CORRUPT MAN AND DOES NOT LOVE HIS FELLOW MAN.
Let us LOVE & LET GO BECAUSE WHAT WE CLING TO EVENTUALLY WE WILL LOSE.

LIFE IS AN EXPERIENCE
As I continue to live, learn and grow I clearly see that my teacher is LIFE. I now understand that life is just meant to be LIVED. Lived with HOPE and ACCEPTANCE. I like to use the metaphor of the Fisherman’s catch. A fisherman goes into the ocean that is LIFE. Casts his net into the water and hopes that he will make a great catch. Is he disappointed if he does not? Maybe yes. Maybe no because he knows that some days he may gather an abundance of fish. Other days he may take in nothing. Is the fisherman discouraged ? Certainly not. A fisherman always remains hopeful. Accepting whatever the sea of life offers up. He PERSEVERES even though things may seem grim. He waits PATIENTLY for his great catch and lives with a renewed HOPE and ACCEPTANCE day by day.
Life is an experience! LIVE IT IN HOPE AND ACCEPTANCE. There will always be successes and failures. Disappointments and downfall. Peace and war. Rich and poor. Happiness and sadness. All of this is life. To live for the sake of just the pleasures of life is not living at all. In order to say you have lived is to have lived the WHOLENESS of life. Meaning you have lived through it ALL.
Philosophy reveals to man his kinship with the All. It teaches him that while physically bound to earth (of which his blood and bones are part), there is nevertheless within him a spiritual power, a diviner Self, through which he is one with the symphony of the Whole. Ignorance of ignorance, then, is that self-satisfied state of unawareness in which man, knowing nothing outside the limited area of his physical senses, bumptiously declares there is nothing more to know! He who knows no life save the physical is merely ignorant; but he who declares physical life to be all-important and elevates it to the position of supreme reality—such a one is ignorant of his own ignorance.
Excerpt from The History of The Origin of All Things by L.M. Arnold
The time has come when man must face this truth as he has to face what man calls
evil; but The Father calls it lessons which man must learn through experience.
In truth, what man calls “the Devil” is the desire of the soul, for the sake of its
own growth, to have these experiences of “evil”, for the soul recognizes the fact that it
must have them. Man must know evil in order to be able to recognize it, and to be sure,
he must know it so well that he will not be overcome by it again.
This means experiencing until the soul is so filled with horror which each “evil”
thing which pulls man down that he turns from it in disgust. Thus each single individual
soul has to go through each phase of evil, until he be proof against any form which it may
This is an explanation of why the idea of a personal “devil” grew up. In truth that
“devil” lies in man’s own soul, through his free-will. This free-will was given him so he
might learn to choose for himself, because he knows from his own experience—and not
from the experience of any other person—what the evil was, and why he did not deserve it
Is it not the way a parent trains his child? Does not the parent tell the child what
he should do and what he should avoid? What does the child do after he grows old
enough to begin to want to do as he wishes to do? Does that child not experiment for
himself, and choose which line he will follow?
So it is with mankind from the minute he leaves Paradise, or the Garden of
Paradise is called in the Bible, to begin his practice in using his free-will, which is his
knowledge of good and evil. He tries this way and that way, until of himself and through
his own efforts, he finds God’s way for him to go, the way established for man from the
beginning but which he had to hunt for and find, through his desire to find it because he
had found any other way was wrong, and would lead him away from God’s plan instead
of toward it.
Now this is “evil” as man sees it, and it is personified in a being man has named
“the Devil”, while in truth it is only the efforts of man to try many ways before he finds
and is willing to follow the ONE WAY — which is the WAY The Father planned for him
This ENTIRE WORLD SYSTEM IS BASED ON CONTROL. If you are visual and you want to draw a picture of this it would look like a pyramid. At the very bottom there would be human slaves and as you work your way up to the APEX you would find the few who pull our strings. After all the HUMAN SLAVES are THE PUPPETS.
This is an abridged version of the EXPLANATION OF THE WORLD’S SYSTEM. IT IS MUCH MORE THAN THIS BECAUSE IN ORDER TO REALLY GRASP WHAT IS MEANT BY HUMAN SLAVERY YOU MUST FIRST UNDERSTAND THAT THE CONCEPT OF MONEY IS ILLUSORY.
THE REAL COMMODITY IS, WAS, AND ALWAYS WILL BE HUMAN BEINGS. THERE IS NO MONEY. THERE IS ONLY HUMAN SOULS. THIS IS WHAT IS ENSLAVED.
UNDERSTAND THAT YOUR WORLDLY EXISTENCE DEPENDS ON MONEY FOR SURVIVAL.
THIS DEPENDENCY CREATES IN YOU A SENSE OF FEAR. YOUR AFRAID THAT IF YOU DO NOT HAVE ENOUGH MATERIAL GOODS YOU WILL NOT SURVIVE. YOU WILL NOT BE HAPPY OR UNACCOMPLISHED AS A HUMAN BEING. SO YOU WORK FOR THIS FALSE MONEY. SACRIFICING ALL YOUR LIFE. SO MANY OF YOU ARE UNABLE TO PROPERLY RAISE YOUR CHILDREN. MANY RELATIONSHIPS ARE IN SHAMBLES BECAUSE PEOPLE ARE EMOTIONALLY HUNG OVER. OTHERS HAVE EVEN CHECKED OUT EMOTIONALLY BECAUSE THEY HAVE LOST THE BATTLE IN THIS WORLD…. MY GOODNESS! ALL OF THIS WORKING ONLY TO ACQUIRE MATERIAL GOODS THAT WARRANT NOTHING AT ALL. YOU ARE NOT A PEACE AND YOU ARE AFRAID. YOU ARE EMPTY.
ALL OF THESE “FALSE BELIEFS” WE HAVE BEEN TOLD AND PASSED DOWN IN TRADITIONS. THESE ARE LIES. THE HUMAN BEING DOES NOT NEED TO LIVE THIS WAY. THIS IS ALL BASED ON DEPENDENCY. THIS SENSE OF NEED GIVES OTHER MEN CONTROL OVER YOU. NOT PHYSICAL CONTROL. PSYCHOLOGICAL CONTROL. FOR YOU SEE…WE HAVE BEEN TOLD HOW TO LIVE.
WHAT MAKES YOU A SLAVE IS NOT SHACKLES ON YOUR ANKLES. IT IS THE DEPENDENCY YOU HAVE ON ANYONE OR ANYTHING. THIS DEPENDENCY COMES IN THE FORM OF EMOTIONAL ATTACHMENTS TO PEOPLE, PLACES, AND THINGS. IT IS BECAUSE OF OUR EMOTIONAL ATTACHMENT WE ARE ENSLAVED. THUS WE ARE AFRAID OF LOSING WHAT WE ARE ATTACHED TO.
CONTROL USES ANYTHING YOU ARE ATTACHED TO (DEPENDENCY) TO MANIPULATE YOU TO GET YOU TO GIVE UP AND SUBMIT ENTIRELY TO THE MASTER. YOU GIVE UP YOURSELF.
YOU DO THIS UNKNOWINGLY BECAUSE YOU HAVE BEEN BAMBOOZLED.
YOU ARE A FREE BEING SUBJECT TO NO AUTHORITY EXCEPT YOUR OWN.
IF YOU CAN SEE THAT YOU ARE ENSLAVED THAT IS THE WAY TO FREEDOM.
UNIFICATION IS THE BASIS OF ENTIRE CREATION. It
proves that everything has been created in cosmos to follow universal laws
originating from ONE Unified Field. In this manner, everything in this world is
interrelated and interdependent. Saying, “Nothing in the world belongs to me
personally” or,” Everything in the world belongs to me” - has the same
implication; since in this Unified Field, everything belongs to everyone.
