Rooted in Red

We may think that we are physical beings that operate on food and water, but we are, at a fundamental level, energetic beings that operate according to different patterns and laws that govern the energetic realms. One of these systems is the spectrum of colors of the rainbow, described by some through the chakra system, and we also have the energetic domains of masculine and feminine. Part of a journey is to connect with ourselves at these more fundamental levels, where the laws that govern our possibility are in operation.

John: In the dream, I’m in an office area that is being readied to serve a purpose. A couple of stripes have been placed, just like rainbow stripes, you know, it’s just like you’re painting the stripes on a wall. 

A couple of stripes have been placed, and a person who is in this space asks me to open a tube. It’s like a long tube, except it has paint in it. I guess, in some fashion, you use this to paint with, too, although I don’t see how that works. 

The tube I open is red. As I’m about to open another tube, because I don’t realize what he’s asking me to do; when he asked me to open a tube amongst all the tubes that are laying there, I’m actually picking some color. I don’t realize I’m picking a color, I just grab a tube at random. And I open it, thinking, who says when I stop? And I was about to open another tube. 

And he says, okay, I can work with that. And I say, what do you mean? Do you mean we are to put this color down, or this stripe down? And he says, yes. So he has already put a couple lighter stripes down, or in other words made an effort to do something, but something is missing, or something more is needed or something, and one doesn’t know what it is. And this is going to be quite a contrast to what has already been put down. 

And when he says he could work with that, and I realize we’re putting this down, I realize that it’s going to be succinctly different from the lighter colors, the subtler colors more of a higher-self color, that had been put down. So as we get set to proceed with this rainbow-like strip to be a band across an area, I realize it is a shock but it will work. 

So the meaning is, in terms of a flow grounding is important for the flow to cause a coming together. Red is the most rooted and grounded color to be used. From the first dream I was shown that life includes everything, even that which is meant to be a bit counter to the norm. It too has a place in the unfoldment of a flow. If off a bit in the flow, it is something that grounding will pull together, red being the root chakra color. 

And then you could say that this dream added something that was missing in the last one in that you bring in the root chakra, you bring in the grounding, and it all sorts itself out. When you have a dream subsequent to a meditation dream it tends to add to it and work with it, and sometimes includes something that’s a little bit missing. When something’s a little off, and yet it still has a flow, it can sort itself out with a grounding that occurs over the course of time. But, at the same time, things aren’t as we would like to think they need to be. We really don’t know what’s going on.

A Sincere Flow

The pure essence of something is usually hidden from us. What we see and experience is usually a manifestation of that essence, without perhaps telling the full story. Nature is like this, animals are like this, continents are like this, and people are like this. As a human, we can pare away all the aspects of ourselves that take us away from our pure essence, at which point we’ll be able to connect to the essences of other things in their natural state. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

John: In my meditation dream, I’m aware that what is going on involves a paring down that is a steady process that refines a situation to more of a balance of essence, or pure essence. And paring down is like polishing, or doing something to get it into a certain kind of shine, or final result.

Every scenario has a pure essence. At first, I notice that there is just a never-ending paring of the surface of things with a sander that grinds away more and more until there is no x material in control to contend with, and everything is as refined as it can get. 

So what I’m starting off with is I’m starting off with an area in which you’re just had the flooring down, but the flooring is irregular: it goes up and down, and it’s too thick, and it’s roundish in places. And so I’m taking this paring thing, and I’m bringing it down to instead of it being all hilly bumpy in this way and that way, or however it is just naturally laid out, I’m taking off the crust of it, getting it down just to the fine essence. So instead of it maybe being two inches, and two and a half inches, I’m bringing it down to maybe where it’s a consistent one-inch thick. Leveling it down, shining that that way into a consistency. 

So, in the dream, the surface of things has to be smooth and shiny. The surface starts out with irregularities in its structure, and is subject to interpretation. So in the dream I am just a kid in a setting in which there are things going on that I do not understand but must cope with as the setting I am in. So I’m in an amnesia, now. 

I just let go and realize that there is a meaningfulness to it all. As a kid in an amnesia, I’m like a cell in the whole; I don’t know what’s going on. I notice that in doing so, in letting go, I am paring away at things that are in kind of an excess, or blindsided, or however, or just feel and have a sense of being peculiar to me. 

The process has me going clockwise, then counterclockwise, you know, with the sander, going all different ways, continually trying to get something right, around and around. Near the end of a cycle, I do something to set off a huge reaction. In other words, it’s been going on, and now we’re way into the process. A woman comes up and chews me out for acting up. In other words, I’m at a spot now where there’s another rounded little area that has to be contended with and smoothed down and leveled out and shined up. And I guess I’m a little bit exasperated as if, oh my goodness. And so I react and I say something, and so a woman chews me out for acting up. In other words, I’m just supposed to go along, absorb it, and take this in as it is. 

She speaks to me in some language I do not understand, but I know what she means anyway. The issue has to do with me reacting over something going on that is near the end of this process. At some point in time I was looking to be done with this, I guess. So at this point, it was assumed that I could handle anything that happened, and so when I react, when I have my attitude, it really sets off a huge reaction. 

I’ve hit a point in the polishing in which the floor surface is uneven, a bit round, and in need of paring down. In other words, more so than the rest, because I’ve been going around, and around, and around, you know, I thought I was getting it pretty much in shape. And all of a sudden I hit this other area and I go a little off. 

I react over what I see in the outer instead of paring away the ambiguity. I know I should be handling this differently by letting go and polishing this area, as well, but I slip up. So when I am chewed out for interfering with the business of things in life, I realize that I have it coming. 

Meaning: this is a dream in which I come to know that there is an unfoldment and flow with everything that happens, and all of this is meant to prune and design in ways I will understand when I accept and let go of everything – so life can do its thing. The flow that is sincere will find its way. The approach that is too pure goes nowhere.

In Need of Rescue

The proper energetic food is just as important to our health as any physical food we put in our body. The universe has been called “the great eating” because everything is constantly getting energy from one thing while expending energy on another. And just like the freshest, most natural food is better for us than processed food with strange additives, what we focus on, what we think about, what we intend, and what we do are among the ways we create energetic connections to other aspects in life. We want to be getting our energetic food from the highest sources possible. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

John: And then in a prior dream D. and L. are sitting in a corner booth at a restaurant. I ordered the food for all of us. I sit in a booth several booths away. I wait, and I wait. 

Just as I’m getting ready to react because the food isn’t coming, suddenly my name is called out. I go over to pick up the food I ordered, that is supposed to be for everyone. The food is in a large plastic baggy. There is one T-bone steak and condiments. The steak looks great, but where’s the rest of the food? And D. looks inside. Suddenly he comments: Boy, does that stink. 

I wake up wondering two things. One, where is D. and L.’s food? And two, what is it that stinks? The meaning is, in this dream, what D. and L. need is missing. They are subordinate, and that stinks. 

When the prior dream is taken into account, on something that is out of sync I go catatonic, because I am not willing to accept behavior, or mannerisms, that I see to be blindsided and unconscious. In other words, things have to come out of this condition, they can’t stay blindsided and unconscious. 

When this becomes embarrassing, I react in as dense and blunt a way that I can think of, which causes the world to turn away. When I decide to eat chicken, it is handed backwards to me. 

And then I fall into an answer dream, in which I engage in a process of retrieving what I need to have when deemed appropriate. I do not plan this, I just do this as the situation requires. 

The meaning of this is that what I have hanging out in this way needs to be rescued and redeemed, but that is not possible at this time. When it is, I will take this on in a spontaneous way. 

So I see what’s haywire and I draw the situation, but then when I come back and I glance back, I can look at the flow. And I realize that in the flow, everything was choked. It was completely choked; there wasn’t a darn thing that you could readily see. So the dream is sitting in need of something more to re address the thing so that it can have another go around because what got presented towards it pointed out the problem, identified that there was a problem, in terms of what was going on.
