Faith factor

"Feed your faith and your fears will starve to death." Yesterday I experienced the truth in this quote in my dream. Let me first explain this dream. I and my husband were on a game viewing site. The place seemed to be a residential area. As we walked we reached a roofless building which only had walls and it seemed like an enclosed garden area. Before we could enter the gate of what seemed like a resting area/ garden I suspected that there could be cheetah or leopard. As we opened the gate we found a cheetah growling in hunger. I turned to the other side to look for cubs. As expected it had four cubs to feed. That moment I felt that either my husband or I would become their food for the daily. I wanted to save my husband and was ready to sacrifice my life. I tried to stroke the cheetah so that it would target me first and my husband could escape. It initially resisted and tried to catch my hand. We both did not feel like running for saving our lives. At this moment in time there awaited a surprise. The cheetah did not attack any of us. It quietly looked at us and calmed down. We were awestruck by the fact that a cheetah with four hungry cubs to feed did not attack us. From nowhere I had a feeling that it either saw swami in my face or Swami stopped it from attacking us.
The next scene took me to a bush in the jungle. I was hiding behind bushes to avoid lions during mid night. The next second I noticed that I was in fact sitting next to a huge shining lioness. I wondered how it did not attack and sat like a dog. I expected the lion would come anytime to attack me. The next instance a huge lion went past me without harming me. I felt so strange at the behaviour of these wild animals.
Third scene was about a cheetah that was roaming around my house and found the gate open. It tries to enter the compound. But it lied down right in front of the open gate. My heart pounded fast as I thought it might attack my neighbour or anyone else who passes by. But after sometime it vanished from the place. I also saw few rhinos which were used for safari like elephants. I saw the cheetah moving towards the other end of the jungle towards those rhinos.
What amazed me was the fact that I was put in situations where there were wild animals next to me. None of them attacked me. I felt that my faith in Swami saved me during that time. I felt there was some divine power that kept those wild animals unusually calm. Something told me that my faith in Swami has increased without me realizing it and it was an indication from Swami that the faith factor in me put the fear factor to death!..
Jai Sairam!
