A vision of the Rising Lion
I saw a vision of the rising lion. This was a vision that came after a series of dreams involving lions. Once again, I heard and felt the sensation of thumping or knocking prior to waking at 4 am on the morning of September 14, 2020. Instead of falling back asleep, I opened my eyes and lay in bed for a few moments. Eventually, I closed my eyes again for several minutes and then opened them again.
As I opened my eyes the second time, I saw, to my right, a large male lion rise to its feet. After a few minutes, I closed my eyes once more. Finally, I opened my eyes again after a few seconds and saw the image of the lion again.
This is not the first time I have seen lions in a dream but it is the first time I had a vision of the rising lion. The first dream I had involved two lions. One of which was about to devour a child. In the second dream, there were two lions watching over me and at first, I thought they were looking at me as prey. Finally, in the third dream there were also two lions but this time, I had power over one of them.
In many places in scripture, the lion is portrayed as a predator. However, in a vision of the rising lion, I felt peace and power. There was nothing to fear. Actually, this became evident in the third dream I had. The lion represents God’s might. Numbers 23:24 states “The people rise like a lioness; they rouse themselves like a lion that does not rest till it devours its prey and drinks the blood of its victims.”
The symbolism of the verse is showing us that we awake and rise in the knowledge of who we are as infinite creators, as one with God. We devour the old states of consciousness that no longer serve us. Blood represents the application of psychological truth. So, we apply what we have learned by overcoming those old states of consciousness. We rise, just like in my vision, a vision of the rising lion.
The people are humanity in a profound state of sleep. The lioness rises and the lioness is the creative aspect of man. As we recognize and apply that creative aspect consciously, we utilize God’s might. It is the power and wisdom of God. That power and wisdom is personified as Jesus Christ, the Lion of Judah. We rise, just like in a vision of the rising lion.
Visions and Coming Home
I have had many visions since awakening. The vision of a rising lion was powerful but peaceful. I cannot accurately describe in words the feeling of having visions. Not just visions but clear messages. To awaken and witness the lifting of the veil is profound.
The vision of the rising lion was one vision. The vision of the Golden serpent was another. I also once had a vision of the hand of God and a dove. Then there was the vision of the vast expanse of consciousness. I have also had some of the most beautiful, vibrant dreams. As I reflect, the moment I knew everything had changed was a night back in March of 2019. I woke up, looked at the clock and it said 11:11. Little did I know that all I had read from Neville Goddard, everything that resonated with me would begin to unfold and change my life, change me, and bring me home to myself.
