Inside and Outside

Jeane: So I had a lot of little dreams that I think were influenced by a book I am reading. In the earliest dream I am a Western woman in an Arab country where women wear veils, as in Saudi Arabia. When I went out in society there, by myself, I was afraid of being seen, and afraid of how they would react to me not wearing a veil. I move from the outside (where it felt like it was mostly masculine) to a room inside where there are women (when women are inside with each other they can take their veils off). Then things shift and I am inside a room with you and something happens where we are going to go outside and I am concerned again about being seen and how people will react.

John: This is an interesting image because what you are describing is literally on the outside – which means outside of yourself – in the overall. All of us are spirit energy that is embedded in matter, and when you go inside (in a dream) you’re going into the territory where the spirit energy can be seen and recognized as awakened. That territory is represented by the feminine nature. On the inside, the feminine carries everything in balance and she can be awakened and made more conscious. But on the outside part of yourself (in a dream), the spirit energy is more masculine, because it is more off the ground; it is not embedded in matter. In the outer masculine territory, things are veiled. It is only when you are grounded in terms of your role, or the quality of yourself as matter, only then are you in that state and able to feel safe.

It is the state in which the out-breath turns into the in-breath. In this particular case it’s a deeper longing, but one that is natural. If you were to identify it as having a quality beyond being “natural,” I would say that the vibration shows that you are going to have to go from where you feel comfortable (where the other women are), into the masculine territory. You are going to have to go out from yourself into the masculine zone. That is where the feminine in-breath takes something back.

So what you are describing energetically is a particular quality, or a particular state of clarity that is part of a cycle in creation. You are describing the part of the cycle that has to do with what it feels like to find yourself inside of physical matter, which is described as the out-breath fully into creation. You are picking this up basically without any real attention on it except that you feel something isn’t quite right on the outside. You feel the need to be veiled there. You see that, and seek the comfort in the house, only to realize that you can’t stay in the house and you are going to have to go back out into the zone again. You’re going to have to give up your safe haven. So you feel very susceptible, because you are being pulled out of your comfort zone.
