The Masquerade

Jeane: The dream then transitions (see In the Presence) into a scene where I’m with my sister, in a room where we live. It’s dark. We’re going to a masquerade party in a few days, and she’s upset with me because I’m going to wear an umpire costume that was made and worn by another young woman last year.

My sister is certain it will leave the arms too bare and just won’t look good. I believe the other woman to be modest, so I stick to my guns – I’m going to wear the outfit. My sister wants to see it and review it and I don’t want her to.

I’m certain it will work out fine, so I go over to the house of the young woman and I’m relieved to see that the umpire costume is a dress that has an umpire shirt with sleeves underneath. She cut the shirt so that part of it comes through some holes in another outfit, and it’s lower cut in front, but not improper.

We want to get a hat to complete the umpire outfit, so the young woman sneaks into her husband’s room to get his umpire baseball cap for me to wear. I put it on backwards like they do nowadays – it’s a little jauntier. The woman is excited about the costume on me, and also the outfit she’ll be wearing this year.

Next the scene shifts slightly and she and I are at the school where the masquerade party is being held. There’s a break going on from the classes so people can get dressed. She and I go to a bathroom area, trying to avoid my sister or others. We’re staying hidden while putting on the outfits – we just want to surprise them at the ball. 

The woman helps me adjust it and it seems to fit just fine. Even though it’s something like she wore last year, it feels good for me to wear this year. I think other people will like it.  

Then I get a sense that the masquerade ball is going to be held in that circular area, the great room in the condo that we were getting access to in the first part of the dream (and we figured out how to get into it, even though you do get a bit of a shock). 

John: That’s a complicated dream. You’re dealing with a dress that your sister doesn’t want you to wear, but you end up finding out that it fits just fine.

Jeane: Yes, I go to the other woman’s house because she supports me wearing it. She made it.

John: So, in other words, this imagery is showing that something is coming through, isn’t it?

Jeane: Yes.

John: Something that when you put it on for yourself – when you wear it – everything is fine.

Jeane: But I do want to hide when we put the outfits on.

John: So you have the sense that you can’t be too obvious with this.

Jeane: No, I just want to show up in it.

John: In other words, you go along and go along, and then all of a sudden you’re there, you just break through.

That connects to the earlier part in that you find yourself facilitating space by just snapping through. So it seems you’ve come to understand that you can touch things in a greater overall way, just by setting your eyes, and your vibration, upon it once it’s imaged in front of you.

In this particular case you’re just suddenly there. You just suddenly have this. It’s like there’s a restriction, and then all of a sudden you just show up changed – the restriction is gone. Wearing a dress, or suddenly showing up, and having that as a presence, is being in an overall state that you just have caught up to. Something in your nature had been holding you back from being able to do that.

In other words, your own self-image has kept you from doing something, and then all of a sudden you realize that that limitation is meaningless, so you just do it, and it’s very natural. It all works out.
