Lottery Dream

Lottery Dream

I like reading books about psychic phenomena and see how it is related to God, prophecy, and Christian aspects.

Recently, I have been reading a book about psi phenomena. It is called “Trails in the Psychic Wilderness” by Dale Graff. He was a physicist who was to eventually lead the Stargate research in the soviet era. They focused on remote viewing, dreams, and other phenomena. They found that, not unlike prayer, to receive answers for things as simple as what color is under the card to where is the hostage, you first focus on intention, asking and asking for the answer, then meditate or clear your mind, then expectantly ask and wait for an answer. I have tried it a few times and it seems to be very successful.

When it comes to dreams, he says to go to bed with the intention of receiving a dream with an answer, whether literal or symbolic. This is not unlike what I learned from my grandmother growing up. I asked her how to dream about puppies and she said, “Just think about it before you go to sleep”. I went to bed thinking of puppies, and sure enough, I did dream of puppies. My therapist said the same thing.

So last night, I had went to bed with an intention. I asked, “Will there be kids? What is in our future?” Then I had a dream that I was in a sort of Price is Right setting, but it was more like to win the lottery. It was a little more modern. There was a host, like Bob Sagot but it looked more like Kirk Cameron. Somehow, I had won the lottery three times. It was amazing. It was a very unique situation, only a few people in all of history did it. I was famous, it was a very happy dream. The host had taken me aside and asked me why it happened, how’d I do it. I told him, I am a Christian and God loves me and I have God on my side. And he immediately knelt down and gave his life to Jesus. I woke up.

The hard part now is to interpret the dream. In the book I was reading, he said the answer can come literally or symbolically and interpretation is often very hard to do. This is true even in the old testament, where kings had asked Joseph to interpret their complicated dreams. I believe the number 3 is important in my dream, specifically because I had asked about kids and what is in our future. Having kids would make you very happy, like winning the lottery. So I do think I received an answer to my dreams. But it could also mean that I want 3 kids, which has been true in the past as well. We will ultimately have to wait and see what it really means.

Possible Result:

The next morning, I read 1 Kings 3. It was the next chapter up.

 At Gibeon the Lord appeared to Solomon during the night in a dream, and God said, “Ask for whatever you want me to give you.”
Solomon answered, “You have shown great kindness to your servant, my father David, because he was faithful to you and righteous and upright in heart. You have continued this great kindness to him and have given him a son to sit on his throne this very day.
“Now, Lord my God, you have made your servant king in place of my father David. But I am only a little child and do not know how to carry out my duties. Your servant is here among the people you have chosen,a great people, too numerous to count or number. So give your servant a discerning heart to govern your people and to distinguish between right and wrong. For who is able to govern this great people of yours?”
10 The Lord was pleased that Solomon had asked for this. 11 So God said to him, “Since you have asked for this and not for long life or wealth for yourself, nor have asked for the death of your enemies but for discernment in administering justice, 12 I will do what you have asked. I will give you a wise and discerning heart, so that there will never have been anyone like you, nor will there ever be. 13 Moreover, I will give you what you have not asked for—both wealth and honor (or riches and fame in the NLT translation)—so that in your lifetime you will have no equal among kings. 14 And if you walk in obedience to me and keep my decrees and commands as David your father did, I will give you a long life.” 15 Then Solomon awoke—and he realized it had been a dream.

We had also gone for gas this morning, we noticed that there was a sign for 3 different lotteries. Perhaps my dream was a slight glimpse into the future, of what I would be reading and learning in the bible, what I would be seeing. My dreams tend to make sense mostly on the following day, although sometimes I have a glimpse farther into the future.

There are other possible interpretations as well. I had a wonderful, awe-inspiring night with Andrew and I was very happy. Perhaps it was that which made the dream so happy and uplifting.
UPDATE: I like to review posts that I have written to see if dreams did come true… in this case, it did. A show began not to long ago with Kirk Cameron as the host, who runs a game/talk show with celebrity Christians where they compete in playful competition while discussion the perplexities of life. So this was a prophetic dream.
