Intrinsically, I have come to believe that there is some part of me that must be a natural healer because I tend to gravitate towards people in need; or they find me… I don’t know how it happens and cannot really explain it but it happens.
Every so often, I have prophetic dreams of some sort… dreams or visions that tend to come true. I don’t, however, believe that I’m psychic or that I have any special “gifts” of that nature. I’m rather inclined to think that most people receive messages or warning signals in the form dreams, intuition, visions etc. but that some people pay more attention to it than others.
Most of these dreams are almost always negative, warning signs of sorts. They may either apply to me, or to my family members, or to friends, or to whichever society/place/country I’m living in at the time. And then there are times when, every now and then, I dream about people I don’t really know and have never even met before. Various people fit into this category, including a number of bloggers.
Yes I’ve had such dreams, numerous dreams, of various bloggers over the past couple of years. Sometimes I see the obstacles they face in their personal lives long before they come to know about it… but most of the time, I see them in a way that most don't. I see beyond the façade and the brave face they put on for the world.
I see the grieving, the helplessness. I see the gaunt, distraught face twisted in agony. I hear the soft murmurs, scared and incoherent. I see the suffering, the indecision and the inner conflict. I see their cross-roads and hesitation punctuated by self-doubt. I see some desperately searching for answers, yearning for enlightenment. I see some harbouring fears and others facing them. Sometimes, I see potential dangers… an accident, a calamity on its way, a loss.
And all the time I want to say to them: “I know what you’re going through but don’t worry, this won’t last forever”. Or, “don’t worry, help is on its way”. Or, “relax and take a breath, things will sort themselves out”. Or, “don’t stress, the situation isn’t what it seems”. Or, “don’t take that route for a week and be careful”. Or, “stay away from so-and-so or from this situation”. Or, “go ahead, you’re doing the right thing”. Or, “don’t hold on to this because the more you do, the harder is becomes for everyone involved”.
But then I always think that it’s not my place to say anything. I think that they wouldn’t appreciate my input or intrusion and that it’s none of my business anyway. So I say nothing.
Instead, I say a little prayer. Wherever you are and whatever you’re going through, may The Almighty calm your waters, blow His strength in your sails and help you navigate through your personal storm because:لا حول ولاقوة إلا بالله
"There is no power or strength except with God."
