Light as a Feather

Jeane: At first I am in a building trying to collect the paperwork I need to get a visa for a trip we are taking. I am explaining to someone that I have all my paperwork, but I cannot finish it until I go upstairs. I want to go upstairs but it is a complex building with many different rooms and elevators; it is a hard to move through. I run into a couple there that I know and they are going to the same room, but their application is incomplete. The man realizes he has to go find what else is needed.


He gives me something to hold for him, and I have a bag that I can put it in. Somehow he also gives me their cat. So now I have their item in my bag, and their cat. Then it feels like I am outside waiting for them on a sloping sidewalk. I’m walking past some places, including their house. I think I am near our garage, a place where I can get into a car and get some things. This is where I am going to leave my car while on the trip.


I run into the couple again on the sidewalk and I am wondering about how to give them back their item and their cat, as I am getting ready to leave on the trip. Suddenly I realize that they do not live too far away, and I can just give them the cat and whatever else it was. They are right here, right now, so I no longer have to keep figuring out how to leave it at home, or go by their place, etc. I have one of those “aha” moments: why am I being a dummy? I can just hand the cat to them here and now.


Then the scene completely switches and it feels like I am somewhere with you and we are talking. I want to show you a feather that has something to do with our relationship. I go out to find the feather and I find myself in an area with heavy equipment and the ground is very muddy with puddles so large that if you stepped in one you could get stuck. I have to walk around the heavy equipment and then I realize that I can’t look for the feather and find it there; I will just have to go back and tell you about it.


That is followed by an image where I am looking through water at something up in the sky. It’s such a pretty clear blue that it’s just incredible. It’s that particular shade of blue when you look through water reflecting the sky.

John: It’s amazing to me that I can even get an understanding of what this dream means.

Jeane: I feel like I never understand anything!


John: The visa is an image of something that you want to transition into in our relationship. Basically, the visa is needed to get somewhere, and in this case, it carries the vibration of me, or some aspect of me, and where you want us to reach together. Your struggle to get the visa has to do with a particular kind of lower-self energy that keeps you from naturally accessing it.

It’s an issue of a certain kind of distance, like aloofness. I don’t know quite how to describe it, but it’s like cat energy. A cat has a tendency to only be there for you when the situation resonates vibrationally. A cat, when it purrs, is actually measuring the vibration. When you are relating to the cat in the dream, there is a softness to the purr and you just kind of go on an energetic ride with that. You are shown that you have to catch up to that quality inside yourself, and be able to hand that off, or share it, in order to properly go where you want to go. That’s how you get the visa for the journey you want to take.

And the feather in the second image shows that there is an aspect of being light, of not making too much of things. You want to be able to go into the maze of life and keep a light touch that allows everything to keep flowing: you can’t do that with a bulldozer, but you can with a feather.

And then in the third image you are able to look up into the sky and not feel any kind of differentiation; you see sky and water, all blue. Again, you are catching up with a feeling quality, a quality that you want to embody, that is an aspect of nothing in particular, yet it allows a deeper appreciation of the overall.

Now, the dream image, with everything flickering around in the background (the people, the building, the paperwork), is essentially a stirring-up of an energetic that is trying to figure its way through into life. It is an energy that is attempting to come across and resonate with matter – into the material world. The visa required shows the idea that you are trying to go into “the matter of the thing,” vibrationally. What is holding you back is a quality of feeling that you have other responsibilities that you have not quite integrated in terms of who you are. There is a stillness required that you have to be whole with, and that is a cat-like quality.

Said another way, there is a stillness you must carry inside so you can feel the tickling and the touching, like a feather to the heart. This is instead of the clumsiness of heavy equipment and muddy conditions that are difficult to move in and you can get stuck. The dream shows that you can’t go out among the trucks and the mud and somehow come back with a feather. Yet there is a way of being light enough, or nimble enough, in one’s nature to sidestep the things that might weigh you down. Part of it is to shut down the denseness of the mind/ego perspective, and feel only the lightness of a feather. Then you can look up into the sky and feel you are a part of the whole expanse.

It is interesting that the three parts of this dream each point to how it is meant to be. Each part shows how the energetic consciousness of something goes into matter. So you are shown images that portray that process. And it also shows that this process is largely done by a certain quality of the feminine.
