Subtle Effects

Jeane: I’m disappointed that I couldn’t pull out the details of my dream. What I can tell you is that it involved the actor we saw in the movie last night, about the man (William Wilberforce) who helped abolish slavery in England (the movie is Amazing Grace).

The dream takes place in a large estate-like building like he had – the space was really large. What made it hard to remember the details of the dream is that I was aware that every single thing that happened was supposed to be related to an energetic, rather than what I saw physically in the outer.

I can remember that even if I was supposed to lift or move something, or put a piece of tape across it, or put a finger under it, I was really moving it through a space. So I just couldn’t pull out the detail because it was really about an energetic.

John: The dream is about an insight that’s very, very subtle. You haven’t been paying much attention to it, or you’ve been presumptuous with it, and therefore you’re reaching beyond it – while it lies in between.

The theme last night has to do with some small blind spots in our natures that are affecting or impacting the bigger picture, or a greater understanding. Essentially what this dream should do for you is cause a certain degree of wondering in terms of how to recognize this subtle little trait.

I think you know what the trait is because, as you wake up and sit and don’t remember the dream, what comes to mind is how it applies to some other quality or characteristic that you feel in your nature that you hadn’t really been looking at and now all of a sudden you don’t like the way it feels. In other words, you’re catching up with the sense of it. So the dream leaves you a little stunned or shocked in some fashion, at some level inside, which causes you to associate that energetic with an inner vibration.

What’s changed is that whatever this little vibration that you associated with in the dream is, it’s a vibration that you’d previously just let be. Now you have to take it into account. What’s interesting about this little vibration is it’s a vibration in between – it lies in between a larger vibration that’s more important, that has a greater depth, but it’s a little vibration that you skipped over or that you chose not to confront or deal with.

You’re now feeling that little vibration in a way that you don’t like. Before, when you saw it or felt it, it left you a little ungrounded and that’s how you’re able to catch up with the flashback toward it. It may have left you a little ungrounded but nevertheless you felt it was okay. You just felt that that’s the way things are or you had a way of rationalizing it and sloughing it off and explaining it away.

Now as a consequence of this dream you’re realizing that that little energetic permeates through your life more than you know and it could be affecting other things more than you want. So now you have to contend with it in some fashion. You’re looking at yourself, pondering how you’re going to contend with it. That’s how your mind would be working as you’re looking around.

The problem is that this is such a subtle energy that however it is that your mind is looking around to see how to contend with it, the chances are it could easily get things wrong because it’s something that has to be absorbed. It has to be taken into the greater being of your self.

It’s like a loose end that’s hanging out there not quite stabilized or oriented in terms of how you are in a larger sense. You have this loose end hanging out and as it does its flip-flop in the energy, it takes and skewers the bigger picture that you also feel inside.

That’s one way of looking at it. That’s the positive way of looking at it. In terms of where we are these days, that’s probably the right way of looking at it. If we were of a denser nature, this would be an energetic that would indicate that we aren’t able to get something to open up until we go through this zone.

That’s also true in this instance, with the exception that the other zone is opening up and, as long as we carry this (energetic), we really do limit the degree to which it can open up, or we color it in some way. Prior to this, it didn’t actually matter that much. It was almost even humorous or playful – leaving things to the ethers to evolve – but now it’s a coming to grips for the sake of something even more important, so that it doesn’t interfere or contaminate it to some degree.
