The Vampire in Us

Jeane: This dream was hard to pull out, but the best way to describe it is I’ve gone into the underworld, maybe into several different worlds.

I know how to move around down there, but I have to move around in different realms and some of them are occupied by creatures like vampires. They’re fairly dangerous beings, but I do know how to fly through certain areas or move fast in ways that other people don’t.

Even though it’s dangerous, I seem to like to look around and gather more information. I may have some skills that could actually be effective for defense, but I don’t use them because I’m more interested in what I’m seeing, or in the information I’m getting.

I do have to stay ahead of some of these beings when they notice me. I fly up, down and through, and maybe I pass out of one realm and into another. Then I pass through a home while people are sleeping. I move quickly to conceal myself; it’s rather dark there.

It feels like there’s some sort of information I’m after. I’m always trying to see or gather more information, but I’m also trying not to draw the attention of certain beings because they might gobble me up. Some of them seem to have a bit more light than others, but I just want to keep moving and stay out of sight so I don’t cause any battles or anything.

John: There’s something in our being that’s meant to be able to go in somewhere, or visit a place, and be at peace there. If we’re missing something important to our wholeness, and we find ourselves in such a place, we won’t be at peace or complete. It’s the sensation of being outside our comfort zone. As a consequence, we find ourselves in a state of delirium; we’re in a place with something missing.

This is a condition everyone suffers from to some degree, and the dilemma is that we usually don’t take the time, or have the honesty with ourselves, to recognize that this is our condition. So we become bewildered by an inability to relate to the connective link. That causes in us the sensation of being askew.

But whenever we confront ourselves in a direct way, it’s as if we’ve penetrated into the underworld, into the inner layers, of our being. So we find ourselves in an area of life, vibrationally speaking, that just carries this sense of something missing and, as a consequence, gives rise to a feeling of alienation.

It’s through an echo in the heart that we can have the good graces to note such a condition in ourselves. And, it’s through a quality of the heart that can allow this whole sense of alienation to disappear. But, as long as that aspect, or quality, of the heart lies somewhere distant, in terms of its consciousness, then the condition we find ourselves in has this huge, odd sensation about it, as shown in your dream.

What you dreamed was very much like the predicament that we experience when we exist with an orientation to ourselves – to the personal, egocentric view of life. We fail to realize that even a slight shift into an egocentric nature keeps us from naturally flowing and being at ease, and at peace, connectively, with the overallness of life.

There’s a point in time in which this dichotomy reaches a crescendo, when we somehow come to know what’s important. Even then, we’re not perfect. In moments where we maintain an identification that lies separate from everything else, that’s when we create the variable, or the contrast (the vampires), because the loudness of the heart has been quickened by it’s desire to return to the state of wholeness.

So through this dream image you have delved into your inner self as a way of facing this issue which has taken on an inner loudness, and you find that something is askew down there. What is askew is that you’re still holding yourself separate.

But you can no longer hold yourself separate once you have reached a point inside (through development) that only recognizes itself by its connection to the overall. Your dream is meant to catch you up with the idea that you need to drop some mannerism about yourself in order to take on a greater role in the whole, in which you already find yourself. So, perhaps, the inner vampire of our ego identity is killed by a stake from the heart, which recognizes our connection to everything.
