Jeane: In this last dream it feels like I have a house that’s up in a mountain pasture area and I’m going to be moving back down, let’s say more to the lowlands, or maybe going to my parent’s house or something. But before I go down there, I want to take the laundry with me.
I’m rounding up people in the house and checking what needs to be done or cleaned up, but it’s kind of tricky because sometimes I have to go out through a pasture area, and up into a meadow, and across something else to get to where I’m going.
I figure out that somebody has left a gate unlocked up there and I’ve come back down. I want to leave, but the gate issue hasn’t quite been handled. I think my ex-husband is around, and I joke about how he should just take off and so he does. Now I don’t have the truck to put my laundry in.
I have a couple of laundry baskets. I want to take all of that with me to have fresh laundry when he comes back. I have to leave even though I can’t fix the thing about the gate being unlocked up above, and I have to trudge back down and find out where he is.
I don’t catch up with him until he’s already parked near my parent’s house. He has one of those awful big pickup trucks. It’s not my favorite thing, but I climb up into it to shift it around. But then my ex sees me and is worried I might ram into the cars that are lined up there, so he comes out to help.
I think that’s when I wake up.
John: Your dream is indicating that you don’t have a good general sense about things like you normally do.
Jeane: That’s true.
John: If you had a good general sense, you would know what was right or not right about the unlocked gate. So you have this awareness that something is astray, amiss, and because you don’t have this good general sense of things, then you can’t hold something together. When you can’t hold something together, you realize that whatever you do makes things worse rather than resolves them.
Your dreams have been dealing with the overall from the general, container perspective of the feminine. You’re weighing events in terms of how it is you’re meant to feel – as a vibration that you carry inside – in terms of a how thing relates to, and fits within, the overall (for the prior dreams, see Crossing Over and The Blessing of the Feminine).
My dreams (to follow) deal with the same territory, but from the masculine perspective. For you, the question is: does something fit into, or can it integrate into, the whole, without causing a disturbance?
For me, the question is: how do I maintain the means by which I’m capable of recognizing and hearing what is required, or needs, to occur?
Your dreams portray a type of hearing, too, only you hear things in terms of allowing yourself to exist or have your attention in the presence of the overall. I seem to have to hear it in relationship to the variables, the little details and idiosyncrasies, and the problem with hearing things in this masculine regard is that I can get caught up in contending with things that I shouldn’t be contending with, because the time and effort to contend with them takes me nowhere.
In other words, to contend with these things puts us in what could be called negative vibrations, which actually tear down the clarity. That, then, puts us into moods or mannerisms that take us away from seeing something new and original that’s transitioning.
We’ll see how this unfolds from the masculine perspective in tomorrow’s post.
