Can dreams release stress?
Even Christ had nightmares while he was earth. He constantly dreamed of his death on the Cross, and it troubled him deeply in his human vessel. But he knew he must die that death to fulfill his mission to Father, and save those that accepted his Sacrifice. The night before he was to be arrested, he cried out to Father, that if it was not His cup (meaning his will) that he might be spared the agony. But that if it was His will, he would follow through. All anguish on his part.
That’s all those dreams are. Father’s therapy. None of us escape what the mind generates. That’s the concept behind it being a release mechanism – the release valve is our dreams, you do what you would not normally do. Your anxiety is released through that valve in that world, it’s not real; it’s ALL phantom energy created by the mind.
Christ constantly dreamed Father sent His angels to save him just before they nailed him to the Cross; other times he dreamed he was nailed to the Cross, and Father had forsaken him. So, what happend when he was dying, and literally out of his mind, he thought he had been abandoned by Father for eternity. That’s why he cried out “My God, why have you forsaken me!” In his mind, he thought because Father had pulled his spirit away from him, that he was LOST forever. But in reality, Father pulled His spirit away so that Christ’s body bore all of the sins of Mankind into him, and at his death, those sins were covered over in his Sacrificial blood.
