Jeane: In my first dream there are two men in a contained space or room, and they’re working with energy in a form where they can toss it out in certain directions. The energy has lines, but I can see through it.
The older man tosses it out and as it comes back he tries to work with it in some way, tossing it out and letting it come back. The younger man seems to be having trouble with his container; the energy isn’t traveling out and back so smoothly. He’s having more trouble than the older man is having.
John: That image keeps the idea nice and simple. What you’re realizing is that you’re working with the flow of masculine energetic (two men) as it comes through, or comes down into life. And even though you’re describing it as a form, which may not be the right word, it’s more of a type of space.
Jeane: Yes, that’s a better description. It’s like an invisible box with lines.
John: You’re seeing new energy and, because you don’t become personally indulgent, you’re able to sit there and just observe it. In other words, you’re not trying to misuse it in some way by taking it for your own or applying it to this, that, or the other purpose in your life.
This enables you to be in the “space” of it as opposed to being in the “form” of it. Said another way, you’re not trying to control or define the energy – so you’re able to acknowledge or recognize that it’s something new. You’re able to observe it, which is a big first step.
The masculine energy is visible to the container energy in Creation that’s undefined – that’s hidden. This energy is latent, it’s behind everything, and it’s an energy that comes down and through and into life by letting go. By dropping a type of “doingness” in our nature, we’re able to see it.
If that energy had caused you to have a particular mood or mannerism about something – meaning if you had reacted to it in a personal way – the dream imagery would have gone off on a very different tangent. That would have meant your personal identity traits were steering the energy in some direction unnatural to it. If you had done that, you’d no longer have been able to see it, which means it wouldn’t have been able to come through.
Instead, you looked at it, observed it, and let it come through, without adding anything to it.
If you examine the process, you have the inner going into its home on the in-breath, which is more feminine, and the out-breath brings something down and through in a more masculine way. So what you’re actually doing in your dream is working in an undefined, letting-go capacity with what is coming through.
