Now, in my dream I also knew that calling on the name of Jesus would drive it away. (Maybe I've been reading too many ATS posts?) So I began to
speak "In the name of..." and just like that I couldn't say His name. It was like trying to articulate the name Jesus Christ made me mute. I
became afraid at that point...and suddenly woke up.
Now I've done some reading on dreams over the years and realize the color white has significance. I also know a closed door is an obstacle and even
a ghost in a dream can have meaning. What bothers me is I've never dreamed of anything religious (that I can remember) and not being able to invoke
the name of Jesus bothers me. I still get the heebie jeebies when I think about it...like that feeling of fear is still with me.
Apologies to the mods if I posted this in the wrong place. I just felt like I needed to write it down and vent a bit.
If I were to translate the symbology of this dream my first instict would be that it's pointing out a blockage in your life ... and the blockage
seems to be you own fear of moving forward / change etc because of the 'unknown' factor.
The wall = the blockage ... it is also preventing you from seeing what's on the other side.
The door = initially it was closed which would indicate that you have been in a rut / at a standstill (enforced by others or self-inflicted) ... the
door opening represents the opportunity to progress ... but your fear of taking the chance / grasping the nettle / taking a leap into the void brings
back the old childhood fear of the 'monster in the closet/cupboard etc.
The colour white (door) = cleansing ... purity ... refreshing ... newborn ... positivity.
Now by your own admission you are a 'non-practicing' catholic therefore you have no reason to have any strength of belief / trust / faith in the
thought that calling on the name of Jesus Christ could or would save you from your unseen / self-created demon on the other side of the door ...
therefore your fear heightened.
We have to use the protection we can relate to eg; for a Christian it would usually be Jesus ... to a Pagan it would be Pan / Hecate and so on ...
You said that these days you are more spiritual so you would have probably had more success if you'd drawn the pure white light of Divine energy
towards you for protection ... spiritually speaking this is our connection with the Divine / Creator Energy / God-source (call it what you will) and
if you visualize this Pure White Light of Divine Energy wrapping itself around you like a mist or silken veil it will form an impenatrable barrier of
protection around you that no unseen evil / negativity can ever break through.
You must find the path you are comfortable with (the one that fits like a comfortable pair of shoes) to feel safe and protected in times of need ...
it's no good expecting something to save you from terror if you doubt it even exists in a certain form.
In a nutshell your dream is telling you not to fear forward progress ... it's time to move-on to the next chapter so that you can grow.
