An Adumbration of the Promise and Death of the Old Man?

An adumbration of the Promise is a foretelling of the Promise of Salvation. The Promise is spoken of in the New Testament. The foretelling of what is to come is told in the Old Testament. Dreams can often leave us pondering their deeper meanings, and one particularly vivid dream from October 21, 2019, has done just that for me. This dream, filled with striking imagery and intense emotions, has led me to question whether it was an adumbration of the Promise and the death of the old man, concepts rooted in biblical and mystical traditions.

The Dream

In this dream, I found myself in a setting that resembled a café or a fast-food restaurant but with an unsettling twist. The entire space was sterile and white, like a highly sanitized hospital room. I was with a man, my arms wrapped around his waist, when suddenly, the tranquility was shattered by the sound of a gunshot.

A man had been shot and lay on the ground with his skull cracked open, exposing half of his brain. Strangely, there was no blood, at least none that I recall. The wounded man kept repeating something—perhaps, “Am I dying?” or “I don’t want to die.” His words echoed with a sense of desperation and fear.

Symbolic Connections

As I reflected on this dream, the word Golgotha, which translates to “skull” in the Bible, came to mind. According to Neville Goddard, the Promise is that God will bring forth from our body a son who will be “born, not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor the will of man, but of God” (John 1:13).

Could this dream be an adumbration of the Promise and the old man’s death? The exposed brain might signify the truth revealed. The essence of understanding God is all imagination. The Promise—the birth from above—will occur within each of us, leading to our awakening. The man’s repeated questions about dying might symbolize the death of the old self, the former states of consciousness we must leave behind to embrace our divine nature.

Personal Reflections

Although I did not receive an innate knowledge of the dream’s meaning, I understand death in the context of spiritual awakening. As described in scripture and Neville’s accounts, the birth from above is a profound transformation that I have yet to experience fully.

Throughout the dream, I felt wind entering my head—a familiar feeling I’ve encountered many times before. Near the end of the dream, I saw rapid images moving at warp speed through space, reminiscent of a film reel. These images, though indistinguishable, felt significant, like pieces of a larger puzzle.


So, what was this dream trying to reveal to me? Was it an adumbration of the Promise and dying to the old man? The symbols and emotions within the dream point towards a deeper understanding of spiritual awakening and transformation. While I may not have all the answers, this dream has prompted me to continue exploring and reflecting on these profound concepts. The journey of awakening is ongoing, and each dream and insight brings me closer to the truth.
