Meaning of Dreams About Adversity
To dream that you are in the clutches of adversity, denotes that you will have failures and
continued bad prospects.
To see others in adversity, portends gloomy surroundings, and the illness of some one will produce grave fears
of the successful working of plans.
The old dream books give this as a sign of coming prosperity. This definition is untrue. There are two forces at
work in man, one from within and the other from without. They are from two distinct spheres; the animal mind
influenced by the personal world of carnal appetites, and the spiritual mind from the realm of universal
Brotherhood, present antagonistic motives on the dream consciousness. If these two forces were in harmony, the
spirit or mental picture from the dream mind would find a literal fulfilment in the life of the dreamer. The
pleasurable sensations of the body cause the spirit anguish. The selfish enrichment of the body impoverishes the
spirit influence upon the Soul. The trials of adversity often cause the spirit to rejoice and the flesh to weep. If
the cry of the grieved spirit is left on the dream mind it may indicate to the dreamer worldly advancement, but it
is hardly the theory of the occult forces, which have contributed to the contents of this book.
