Animal Nature

John: In this dream, I’m gathering up animals that have an energetic nature that I seek. The dream does not reveal why I’m doing this.

In other words, the action in the dream itself is just a process. I have to intuit through the process to understand why this is meaningful.

There’s an animal, like a zebra, that I intercept in the process of being transferred or moved around in some capacity. It’s somewhat under control, and I intercede and incorporate it amongst other animals that I already have. I have it sandwiched, so to speak, between two other larger animals in a gated, container transport. These other animals aren’t where my attention is placed. 

My attention is placed on the well being of the zebra and transporting it in a way that keeps it calm and balanced. I’m a bit concerned that it could get claustrophobic, or could hurt itself, or could react in some way where it might try to jump over a side railing (the railing is not very high and therefore not very safe for these tight conditions). 

I’m hoping and trying to get by as best I can, to move this (zebra) energetic about and try to keep it in its normal state of calm, acceptance, and easy-to-handle demeanor while in an environment that is quite compressed.

I know this might be asking a lot, but I’m looking hard to see if this will work out. But the zebra isn’t the only animal energetic that I seek. In other words, it’s compressed in amongst other animals that are important too. However, this is the principal player.  

There are also smaller animals that I need. I’m thinking I could capture them because of the recent heavy snowfall. The smaller animals will be out of their element and not used to bounding around in the snow. They could be slowed way down to a point where I could just scoop them up.

I’m applying this assumption to rodent-type animals. I think they will find this snowy environment unnatural enough that it will slow them down to the point where I can capture them and move them to a new setting. 

So, my focus is primarily upon two animals. The first is like a small zebra, or horse, that’s wide across the middle like a burro, which, under normal conditions, is a fairly calm creature. I’ve already rounded up this animal, but until I’ve transported it safely to its new residing place, it could become claustrophobic, because it’s compressed between other large animals. That’s one concern I have.

The other primary animal that I notice my energy drawn to is that of a muskrat. I don’t think the muskrat will fare well in the deep snow. I’m concerned, however, that I may have made a mistake in gauging this animal’s acuity because, as I watch it, it seems to be doing just fine.

My thinking was that it would get lost in the deep snow when it was down on all fours. However, I see now that it has the ability to rise up on its hind legs and move about in an upright position – it can see where it’s going. 

Someone tells me that my plan to catch up with the muskrat, because of the deep snow, isn’t going to work. This causes me to look for a different approach.

This muskrat is also like (has the feeling of) a woman who’s under the watchful eye of her father. The idea I come up with is to entice her to train under a boxing champion named Zimm Commensky. If this energetic – first as a muskrat that can rise up on its hind legs to see where it is, and then as a young woman well protected by her father – is to be captured, my plan is to do so while taking the energetic out of its usual element, i.e., enticing it into being trained by Zimm, a first class champion.

I figure this will work because that’s when the protection that this young woman, or energetic, has naturally about itself, will be the most off guard. 

So, what is going on here? I’m endeavoring to cause a change, based on taking raw energy and channeling it in a new way.

There are two energetic components to which my attention is most drawn. The first is the natural, calm, stable demeanor of a zebra, as accepting of itself. I need that composure. I also need it as a foundational energetic in this new place (Las Vegas) that’s still in the process of being shaped.

I also need a catalyst. This is harder to acquire. Such energy is quite adaptive, meaning that it can change with the circumstances. This energy is also well protected in whatever environment it finds itself in.

What I need to do to reach this energetic is to present it with what it feels it needs. When the energetic accepts that, that’s when a conversion is possible.

So this dream is showing me that the way I’m being directed to proceed is important for what is being shaped, and is needed for a certain purpose in my life. This involves stability, acceptance, peacefulness, and balance, like a zebra, and the curiosity, alertness, and agility of a muskrat. These are currently the principle components I require to change the current flow to something new.
