The early morning of Ash Wednesday I had a dream. In my dream me and my boyfriend were standing over small figurines of Jesus and Mary about the same length of my hand. Mary was clothed in light blue and Jesus wore a red robe. The room was dark except for a light shining on the round table with the figurines. We were admiring the statue when all of a sudden Jesus literally sprang to life.
I could feel my eyes widen with wonder. Jesus didn't say anything he just blessed my boyfriend's forehead. For some reason I started to walk away but Jesus smiled and motioned for me to come back towards him for a blessing. I just pointed at myself like, "Me?" He smiled and nodded yes. Then he arm extended longer and he blessed my forehead.
I did not even remember this dream until I saw someone walking with a cross of ash of their head. And I thought, "Oh it's Ash Wednesday." Then I remembered the dream and felt so lucky and special to have seen Jesus and Mary together in my dream although I am not sure of the exact meaning. I felt surreal and important for me to have this dream on this day. Has anyone else experienced a dream like this during a spiritual holiday?
Me and my boyfriend have no children and he is Jewish although I know Jesus was also Jewish. I feel that perhaps he blessed our relationship. I also feel that the women with the cross on her forehead was placed to walk in front of me to help me to remember my dream it felt like a revelation. I never thought Jesus would appear to me in a dream.
