A Boxer's Dream
An interesting video on Yahoo Sports was highlighted yesterday. During a recent interview on In Depth with Graham Bensinger, the boxer Manuel Pacquiao revealed he had a dream one week before his fight with Juan Manual Márquez in 2012 that he would be KO’d. Now I am not a fan of boxing, but this video caught my attention for obvious reasons. The interview is worth a look.
People in all occupations have such dreams that are usually only remembered when something dramatic happens in the dream. In the case of Pacquiao, probably few things could be more dramatic and important to him at that time than the outcome of a major fight. For most people, views of the future pass unnoticed because the dream impact is not great enough to be remembered upon awakening. Of course, this does not mean that such dreams don’t occur; the main purpose of my book is to show that they do occur on a daily basis.
Your dreams will reflect your concerns and interests. If you don’t think seeing the probable future is possible, or believe it is not something you should do, views of the future are likely to be suppressed before they enter your conscious mind. Your subconscious is sending you what you tell it you want, and information that runs counter to that is blocked. Now there can be exceptions, such as a situation your subconscious is aware of that is life threatening to you or someone close to you. Then the subconscious may override your conscious beliefs and desires.
The best way to ensure that you are getting beneficial guidance from your dreams is to meditate daily. By opening the channels to higher forces, you will receive spiritual help that will transcend your individual limitations. And if you find visions of the future are part of it, don’t reject, or try to suppress them. You are being shown certain things for a reason. Also, do not ask for help from your dreams with a preconceived idea of what the answer should be. You may be shown a path that never occurred to your conscious mind, or if it did, was immediately discounted as not worth pursuing. As an example, suppose you are desperate to get a better job. Now you may have a dream showing you back in school because the answer lies in additional education or training. Consciously, this may not be something you want to do, or can do without some sacrifice. Nevertheless, that may be the answer.
In future posts, I am going to discuss seeing the probable future through dreams in much more detail. I thought I would interject this topic here because of the Manny Pacquiao story.
