The Beginning of My Journey
“And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by
the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto death.
Therefore rejoice, ye heavens and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the
inhabiters of the earth and of the seal for the devil is come down unto
you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time”.
─ Revelation 12:11-12
With spiritual hindsight and insight, I am now convinced that my
spiritual journey of revelations actually began long before my conscious
awakening─which took place in the year 2004. My spiritual journey started in
the year 1995 with some major, significant dreams. Prior to having these
significant dreams, my dream world was always a very busy one, full of all
kinds of strange pictures and faces. To avoid worrying over the meaning of
these dreams, I always tried not to attach too much importance to them.
However, on several occasions I would reach out for my Bible in the middle of
the night to place it under my pillow after having one of these
nightmares─dreams. This was the main use I had for my Bible then, and it seemed
to work at all times because soon after I placed my Bible under my pillow I
would fall back asleep. When the nightmares became too frequent, I made
underneath my pillow a permanent home for my Bible and strangely enough, having
the Bible stationed permanently under my pillow afforded me some sort of sleep
In the year 1995, I had a memorable dream
that I believe had some significant meaning that went beyond my normal, busy
mortal dream life. In this dream I found myself somewhere above the clouds and
right in front of me were three, beyond my comprehension─powerful looking
handsome men. They were so extraordinarily unusual and none like them on earth.
They were wearing huge white robes. The one in the middle was sitting whilst
the other two were standing beside him on their feet─one on the left and the
other on the right. It was as if they summoned me there to tell me something or
remind me of something. However, I was so fascinated by their amazing beauty
that I did not hear or understand what was being said. The one in the middle
did most of the talking and the other two smiled at me a lot. After the one in the middle finished
speaking, he stretched out his hand toward me and from his hand came a staff to
mine. Before I could ask any questions, the three men disappeared and I saw a
staircase leading all the way down from the place that is above the clouds to
the open earth space.
With the staff in hand, I descended from the stairs all the way down and
when I got to the bottom of the stairs, I found myself right in the midst of a
large crowd. It was as if they knew I was coming because they appeared really
desperate and impatient for my arrival. As I stepped down from the last step,
the crowd surged toward me from every angle and I became scared. It seemed as
though they were going to squeeze the life right out of me. Out of fear, I
started running away from them. The more I ran the closer they were getting to
me. Still very afraid─but tremendously relieved, I woke- up from the dream. I knew
at the time that the dream must have some significance, but I had no idea what
it could be.
In the following year, I had another dream which I also thought must be
of great importance. In that dream, I saw a man glowing like light, standing
face to face with me. The man taught me a prayer and told me to recite the
prayer when I wake-up and also that I should not worry because all is well. The
prayer was a short one and it went something like this:
“Thank You O Lord for all that You have done
for me. Forgive me O Lord my sins.
Continue O Lord to have mercy upon me so that I may rest and abide with You
forever. In Jesus’ name I have prayed”.
The moment I awoke, I wrote down the
prayer and recited it. From that day onward, I would recite that prayer
whenever I felt down or saddened, and I would always feel relieved afterward.

In Pursuit of Vain Happiness
there not an appointed time to man upon earth? are not his days
also like the days of an hireling? As a servant
earnestly desireth the shadow, and as an hireling looketh for the reward
of his work: So am I made to possess months of vanity, and
wearisome nights are appointed to me. When I lie down, I say, When shall I
arise, and the night be gone? and I am full of tossings to and fro unto the
dawning of the day”.
all the spiritual things were going on in my life, my human (natural) life was
not what I considered as fantastic, but it was not what many would consider
terrible either. In the year 1997, I realised my lifelong ambition to study Law
and soon after completing my degree, I managed to secure a job that same year.
I wasn’t long in my job before I got promoted and soon after, my husband and I
got a breakthrough to purchase our own house. We moved into our new house in
the year 2000 and in the following year, I got another job closer to our new
home with a higher salary. However,
although everything seemed to be going according to plan, for some reason I was
deeply unhappy and did not know why. By the time I started my new job in 2001,
I could not wait to get yet another job. What I had thought would make me
happily fulfilled did not. Often times, once I had achieved my desired goal, I
would immediately think of pursuing something else, and this need to
keep on pursuing one thing or the other was like an addictive problem I was
suffering from for, which there is no cure.
Even though I considered myself a
faithful Christian, my spiritual life appeared to be non-existent. I did not
know how to pray nor did I know where to find anything in the Bible. My main
use of the Bible was placing it under my pillow to protect me against
nightmares. Occasionally, I would recite the prayer that I got in my dream back
in 1996, but unlike before it did not satisfy me the way it had before. I had
the feeling I needed to be doing something more and was mostly frustrated for
not specifically knowing what it was that I needed to do more of. I felt so
empty and void inside.
To try and help this situation I became a
regular churchgoer. I thought going to church regularly would help, but it did
not. To make matters worse, I felt no one could understand how I was feeling
since I could not even understand it myself, let alone able to explain it to
anyone to make them understand. To worsen the situation further, it was as if
my good run was fully over. I had reached a point where nothing I did worked
anymore and all doors of progression seemed to be firmly shut. In the
midst of these mounting problems in my every day life, I became very depressed
about everything. I hated every single thing about my life and hated the world
even more; which as far as I was concerned is full of nothing but injustice,
inequality and unfairness.
To heighten my social image profile, I
had taken on cigarette smoking and drinking some years back. However, in the
thick of this inner-struggle, my depression escalated. Indulging in smoking and
drinking became the very height of my comfort zone and no longer a mere
expression of my believed social status. Therefore, I considered anyone who
would suggest that I give up drinking and smoking as my enemy. I could not
think of anything to replace my drinking and smoking habit with and the more I
saw cigarette smoking and heavy alcohol consumption as my only comfort, the
more I wanted to deepen my relationship with alcohol and cigarette
smoking. Most of the time I felt trapped
doing what I did not enjoy and this made me even sadder because I could not
envision any possible way out.
I had always enjoyed helping people and felt somehow very frustrated for
not being in the position I ideally wish to be in, to be able help people as
much as I desire to. Consequently, in my frustrations, I became an emotional
wreck and was very tearful most of the time for no apparent reason. Life on
earth started to feel more like everyday hell.
The more I looked at the world the more it appeared as a prison, and
seeing the world this way made me feel more helpless and hopeless. The more hopeless I became the more I began
to see taking my life as the only way out from the world. I had an
unexplainable burden and felt extremely frustrated that no one seemed to be
available anywhere to help shift or share my burden. My life became a vicious
cycle of repeated daily routines. Everything became increasingly frustrating
and monotonous. I felt like I was in search of something but the worst aspect
was I had no idea what it was I was looking for. I felt completely alone and it
was as if no one was available to help me.
The more I deliberated on my life the more depressed I became. The more
depressed I got the more I kept on thinking I was better off dead than to
continue to live in a world that was now appearing as a hell-hole full of many
sorrows. The strangest thing in all of this was that everyone around me looked up
to me and saw me as someone with great potentials. As a result, I felt I had no
one around me that I could speak to, who would understand what I was going
through. I felt somehow strangely isolated and the more isolated I felt, the
more God began to appear as an enemy rather than a friend.
