We have demons… inner demons, things we have to learn to master and defeat over our life here on earth as I’m sure you must’ve learned in philosophy? Anyway, I can’t remember how you started off the post but you said this entity took on the form of a gargoyle. Gargoyle’s in Medieval times are said to be watchful keepers of the home despite them being scary looking (in turn in our dreams they symbolize us keeping a “watchful” distance or symbolize us actually keeping a secret from someone or ourselves). In metaphysics stones hold vibrations or truths about the Universe in their structure (religious texts often describe a prophet inscribing secretes into stone – this is just a metaphor for what stones actually do). If you recall the pose of a typical gargoyle; many of these poses of gargoyles have them actually keeping their arms crossed and to themselves symbolizing holding on to something – a vibration or truth. Our thoughts are therefore, LIGHT, and light is an illusion, able to be manipulated by the simplest of our thoughts. That’s why I said that this entity is light, we are attracted towards light (wanting to be close to it) because it is natural for us to go to the light; but light itself is manipulative (it manipulated you!). The entity is simply teaching you that you have all the answers you need inside of yourself; we are bottles of Wisdom (darkness) and the light in this world is to distract us from our all knowing power. When it changed into a different form it realized that you recognized who it was and tried to trick you by changing it’s appearance (manipulation of light). I hope this makes sense… but this is just what I noticed when you posted that dream.
An interpretation I was having with my friend Teresea via facebook.
