Imagine standing in your bathroom having a conversation with two wild birds, a Secretary Bird and an Owl. What you don’t realize is that they are sent with a message from God, it’s time for someone in your family to come home. You missed the point and thought you could stop it from happening.

My Dream

I had moved away from my boyfriend and I was starting to settle into my little flat in Alberton. Around about 02:00 on 11 March 2008 I awoke from a dream. I lay on my bed and thought about the dream.

My dream

I was standing in the bathroom looking at two birds that sat in the windowsill. The Secretary Bird sat on the left and the Owl sat on the right. I remember the Secretary Bird was doing all the talking while the Owl just looked at me.

Secretary Bird: “We are taking the Violin.”

I said: “No.”

Secretary Bird: “We are taking the Trumpet.”

I remember that I stood arguing with the Secretary Bird yet the bird stood its ground. Next thing I remember is the bird flew off with the trumpet. While I stood watching the Secretary bird flying off with the trumpet it struck me that it wasn’t a trumpet but a man. They were flying towards a waste dump where a collection of brass instruments lay. As the bird dropped the man – he turned into a trumpet. As the instrument dropped I realized that the dump was light by a Street lamp shining upon the brass instruments.

I woke up and was frantic; I immediately started to pray for my former boyfriend and my youngest son. I was concerned something was going to happen to the both of them.

Next Morning

I wasn’t feeling too happy about the dream and when I arrived at the office to find my boss had been called into a meeting it gave me time to sit and write the dream down. I also wanted to see what the dream meant.

Meaning of the Dream

I decided to break the dream down into little parts and see what each part meant and then make up my mind as to what the dream meant. I started by looking at what the bathroom symbolized.

The Bathroom symbolized that it related to my instinctual urges. I may have been experiencing some burdens or feelings that I needed to relieve myself.

The window symbolized there seems to be bright hopes and vast possibilities and insight. Hmm I like this part.

The Birds, I only found the Owl and it symbolized wisdom, insight and virtue. It also was synonymous with death and darkness. I don’t like this part.

The Violin represented peace and harmony in the family.

The Trumpet symbolized that my subconscious was trying to get my attention, warning me about something. What on earth was it?

The Brass was symbolic to falsehood and deceitfulness. Someone was being deceptive and action in a bad way towards me.

The Man was symbolic of the masculine aspect of myself, that is assertive, rational, aggressive and competitive.

The Light was symbolic of a clear mind, plain understanding and insight.

My thoughts

I believe it was a good dream, I did pray for the people I felt who was in danger and I feel that I may be learning something. I declare that with God all things are possible,

20 Days Later

It was around 09:15 the Monday morning 31 March 2008.

I sent a SMS to Dad. and https://bible.com/en-GB/1/mat.5.14,16.kjv

Dad answered my SMS ‘Thank you, you still have the knack to push the right buttons. Love Dad.’

Just after 12h00 my sister called me and told me that my Dad had passed away. He had a sudden heart-attack and died instantly. It was a really sad time for us and now when I reflect over the dream it was telling me that my Dad was going home.

In August 2008 my brother in-law whom was close to my father also died of a heart-attack. It was a really sad year.

Hello Lady Aiyanna, I don't feel resentment or hatred towards any instruments. It was symbolic in my dream. I wish I was musical and I do play a little on my guitar but I do not despise or hate any instruments. You are so blessed. Thank you for your comment. You are a blessing. Cheers Yvette

oh my that was a prophet dream although this may not be your case but death can mean death of an old life, and you were certainly embarking on a new life

Hello Carol, today I realised that the death of my father was a prophetic dream and I have others but it was so interesting to realise I received a warning. Just wish I knew how to use the time I had more wisely. But at least I did speak to my dad the day he past away. I think it was a blessing. thank you so much for your comments .... you are a blessing to me :-)
Cheers Yvette

Dreams can be interesting and I feel that very often they come for a reason. I like the way that you attempted to learn the meaning. So sorry about the deaths in your family. Blessings.

Yvette, did you ever come to the conclusion of why your dream had a Secretary Bird doing the speaking? And, was your father the violin or the trumpet, and why those images?

Dream analysis is a bit of hobby of mine: but the 'truth' of the message is always particular to the dreamer.

Hi Christopher actually I don't know, I tried to analyse the dream to the best of my ability. My Dad was a very cheerful and easy going person so I think that could be the violin. I think the trumpet was a warning. I really don't know. It is really interesting, I dream a lot. Last night I had a dream about frog. Weird hey.

You are a blessing

Is there a Sagittarius in your family? I agree with the violin (harmonious) as your father, so that would make your brother-in-law the trumpet (strident?).

Thanks for the blessing comment.

If your younger brother is a Sagittarius (Nov 21 - Dec 20), he would represent the spirit of the Secretary Bird, and may have been the one who warned you in the dream.

Anyway, thanks for indulging my curiosity.
