A dream that changed St. Patrick’s life

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!!  Here’s a little known fact about this Saint that you may not know…

He was born in Britain around the A.D. 390 to an aristocratic Christian family with a townhouse, a country villa, and plenty of slaves.

At 16, Patrick’s world turned. He was kidnapped and sent overseas to tend sheep as a slave in the chilly, mountainous countryside of Ireland for seven years.

According to folklore, Patrick had a dream that showed him how to escape! He found passage on a pirate ship back to Britain, where he was reunited with his family.

His dreams then told him to go back to Ireland, which he did and that is where he got ordained as a priest and spent the rest of his life

Dreams play an important role all throughout history because they are the most powerful part of who we are!

* Thomas Edison used to keep a cot in his laboratory so he could “grab ideas from space.”
* Harriet Tubman used her dreams to guide hundreds of escaped slaves to freedom through the “underground railroad.”
* Abraham Lincoln consulted his dreams on a regular basis!

Dreams are powerful things! In fact, they are the most powerful part of who we are. Whether your dreams are advising you, warning you or inspiring you, they are an endless resource you can tap into every single morning… once you know their secret language!

    I ASKED THE SAME QUESTION TWICE ON YOUR ASK A QUESTION FOR FREE AND I WILL GIVE YOU A RESPONSE. I NEVER RECEIVED A RESPONSE FROM BOTH TIMES I TRIED. THIS IS JUST ANOTHER SOLICITATION TO MAKE MONEY. I'LL STICK TO BELIEVING IN GOD AT LEAST HE'S FREE AND MAYBE HE DOESN'T WANT ME GOING TO THESE SITES. BUNCH OF CRAP!!!

  3. You have to keep scrolling down. It takes words from your question and explains the significance of them separately. It isn't fortune telling but psychology. I don't know about the adds on the page either cause I didn't click on them but the ask a question free page seems legit to me. Still if it goes against you conscious it's better to hold off until you figure out what is actually bothering you. Sometimes there are other things going on in our lives that we need to deal with before we can move on. Here's a scripture to encourage you. “For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.” 2 Timothy 1:7 Have a blessed day!

  4. For those who don't already know, the “snakes” he drove out of Ireland were actually people he had either killed or exiled that wouldn't convert. Snakes in most religious beliefs represent wisdom and knowledge and clarity and even enlightenment. But in the Bible they are trickery in some places and healing in others. Depends on where you read. In Genesis the serpent beguiles and tricks and, interestingly, hangs out around the tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil. From that snakes are often associated with Satan and trickery in the Christian world. Makes sense cause way back when folks were burned at the steak or beheaded and such for trying to gain knowledge by the then religious leaders. So driving the “snakes” out of Ireland makes perfect sense cause it was still in a time where books and scrolls were protected by the priests and not available for the common man. Some believe St. Patrick was bent on revenge because of his years in slavery and was more then successful at it. I think there are some folks, not you Lauri, who don't realize that dreams can aid the good as well as the bad.
