Breaking the Spell

Hypnotic-spiralJohn has a dream where he is the new kid joining a softball team, which is in a malaise in terms of its performance. A team in a dream can be understood as a “collective,” or the prevailing way things are going on. John’s presence is meant to shake up the collective, and break them out of their malaise. Tomorrow, we’ll take an in-depth look at this imagery. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

John: The first part of it was just a sensation in which I can feel in the scenario of an overall, that there’s a little bit too much heaviness that exists. So even though a bounce or a temporary relief is needed, and it’s going to be a temporary relief, just to take a certain pressure off, I can sense that. 

The problem is this is not my strong suit or area, because this borders awful close to what you do, but I can sense and I can feel that what is pressure upon it all, needs to ease up just for the time frame, again, to allow more sight of a certain overall quality to permeate out and see the situation.

And then it will continue to break down, but it can’t just break down and everyone go into an abyss. It has to break down in a way so that people have a sense of what has happened. There’s no change in other words in this image.

This image is just an image in which the unfoldment of something that’s destined to unfold continues, but there are reposes, and then there’s a step back in that there’s a way of letting things kind of adjust or catch up, as I indicated, a type of temporary bounce from what would normally be a straight down plunge, in order to allow people to see, and watch, and note, or as I indicated, kind of catch up so that it doesn’t catch them completely in a mysterium or something.

So, that’s the first scenario, which is just something to set the stage that this is the kind of existence that is out there right now. And then from this being the scene, as the existence, the following dream occurs to point out how you effectuate it, or work with it, from the standpoint of the masculine.

Of course the feminine is in charge of how it all permeates out, in terms of it integrates through, in terms of dealing with all of the vibrational contracts of life or, essentially, is able to be accepted. But this watching part and this whole business where everyone has to catch up and take note of what’s going on has to kind of come first.

It’s part of the overall in terms of a feminine losing the general confusion in terms of what is going on, but the feminine does not have the answer. The answer comes from this other aspect and use of energy, that is the feminine that is there in place, that is the nature that can allow the contracts to all be taken into account simultaneously, and for everything then to find a cadence, and then for the will from even the higher self to be able to permeate and come down like an inner into outer.

But that shooting through of that inner into outer is a masculine use of energy – and that’s what this dream addresses. 

In the dream, I’m like a new kid that’s moved into this place, into this area. This area has a baseball team, and I join the baseball team, and the game that they play is softball. It’s like a softball… or anyway the game is such that you pitch underhanded. So the ball tends to be at a speed that you can kind of see it as a general rule; it’s slowed down. It’s kind of like a woman plays the game. 

It’s the guys who play overhand fastball as a general rule, where speed is involved, but the speed without control, without a certain focus and attention, is out of balance, doesn’t mean anything at all. So as the new kid in the area, I go to the team and check into the team to play on the team. 

And at the time I step into the team, nobody knows anything about me. As far as I could tell no one says where I need to play, and it’s kind of like I could just grab a position – all except for one. And the position that is very specialized is the pitcher’s position, but because no one says what I can or can’t do, and all of a sudden there is a gap that exists because the pitching position is haywire on this team. 

And it’s haywire at this particular moment in time, something is breaking down even, and a change needs to be made, I step over and take this play and grab the ball. It’s kind of like this team doesn’t see itself that way, with somebody new coming in straightaway like that, so two other people step up that are offering to pitch and the whole team knows how they pitch, and so it’s like a shock if they step forward because what I’m doing is kind of out of oblivion or something.

But I know that the tone needs to change, and I can feel the problem. And so I ask the question, “Are there any restrictions in terms of how fast I can pitch?” and the answer is, “No.” When I ask that question, and bring that up, it’s kind of like they want to see. They pause. Ordinarily you know I’d have been pushed out of the way because the collective would have predominated. 

I take the first pitch underhand and I whisk it straight out there. I’m not sure because I haven’t done this for a while, and it goes right across the strike zone with a speed I can feel and see inside. In other words, I’m touched with that vibration. 

The question I even had is, would this be under control? And it wasn’t, and I’m kind of surprised too, because you’re never sure what is able to happen or not. But what I felt inside, what I had leaped out with inside of myself translated across into the game.

And this is just the first warm up pitch, and the catcher says, “Nice.” I could see myself blowing the fastballs right by a batter. It was just right in that space. I could feel the vibration of that because it would be faster than anything that the batters would be used to contending with, and it would take a while for them to adjust. 

And so I knew that I didn’t even know how to finesse. At this point, coming into a game like this, the idea of finessing and whatnot, throwing off-speeds or curve balls, or trying to do anything any different just wasn’t there. It had to be just fast and powerful, straight and consistent, and basically as fast as my focus would let me pitch them. 

I could see inside that as long as I carried this demeanor and was able to permeate it from within over the team, and over the game, and over the collective, that I could affect the situation. But the question always remained and, until you did it, you couldn’t know the answer to this, if I had the intention, consistent intention, that could match the focus over an entire game? 

If so, then I could permeate and break through the spell that existed over the team, as a tone, as a mood, as a jinx, as kind of a way of them seeing themselves that would then lift something to a new level. 

The challenge then, the bigger challenge, was holding onto the quality I had inside, to the point where it could prevail over the mystique of a team that had reached a point of believing that nothing could work forever, or for long, because the team was just in this state where it would settle for just improving upon the embarrassment that existed. In other words, it didn’t see itself as able to break through. 

The idea of transforming the scene into something new, in other words, had fallen out of consideration. But it wasn’t something that I was allowing myself to be affected by. In other words, I was just stepping into the scene and able to take it on.

A Ring of Light

eclipse-Dreams of being on another planet, with other species of aliens? What can this mean? Well, it often points to a need to integrate something new into one’s life. The aliens represent the new or different energy, and the struggle is to see how to incorporate this new energy. It is the feminine quality that makes this possible, by creating a containment for what is new to be integrated into the Whole. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: My series of dreams take place on another planet. It actually feels like a pretty well integrated series, because first I’m kind of male on another planet and I’m in a jungle kind of learning how to interact in some competitive games with other guys who are there.

So it’s almost like we’re trying to see, if you come together in a circle in the jungle, and you’re kind of competing at certain games, how we can compete with each other in a way where you don’t have unfair advantages, where you can actually kind of compete and play these games, and when do you have an advantage or disadvantage, or what?  

So I’m trying to figure that out initially. Then I kind of take that concept one step removed, and on this same planet there are people that visit from another planet, and they’re always isolated from anyone other than their own species, even though they’re all humanoid. 

And so I expand that with the way that you can kind of let two species mix a little bit in some games, or in some interactions, so that one doesn’t overwhelm the other and you can just bring in a few people in a certain setting and see how that works initially because some of these people are built differently physically, or they’re more heavier set. 

They’re a different race, so you want to see how that works. And initially you do it in a very controlled way, and then you see if you can push that and do it in a little less controlled way because that’s people’s nature that they have some of this mixing and they want a little bit more.

And so that seems to be what the whole series of dreams is about, about how to kind of allow these different races to mix and in a way where one doesn’t overwhelm the other, and yet where you can continue to find different combinations that allow for an interaction.

John: This is continuing the same sort of thing energetically, as far as the way something is effectuated or permeated into life, as occurred yesterday in which you had to take into account the contracts of everything. And now to that same schematic correlated, is a dream in which you are looking at how things are integrated in terms of the Whole.

First you start off with the raw energy in which everything is just quite ordinary in the outer and basic, in which there’s nothing at all sophisticated in that image because it’s like a scene that is set back in the jungle days of things, or in the horse and buggy aspect of development, or in just, if you’d like, more of a lower-self nature of it all.

And are you able to take and accommodate that, so that a kind of equanimity is able to exist? This is very much the situation and the big question that’s always raised and that’s why you have various parties going at it, like the Democrats and Republicans or whatever, trying to determine what is best for society so that things aren’t out of hand, because otherwise there’s apt to be unfair competition, or someone is going to have to suffer for the benefit of someone else to step ahead.

On the lower-self level you’re looking at how you’re able to take and accommodate, using a word from yesterday, all the contracts that exist out there in terms of energetic uses of energy that have a different motif, different intents, different mannerisms, a lot of them more personal than others, just at various stages in other words.

How is all of that accommodated in terms of working with the outer conditions of life? In the second half of the dream, it’s like now how is it possible to introduce new energy into the equation? In other words to shift it, to speed it up, but you speed it up in terms of a vibrational Whole. In other words, you usher in something that you can link or connect to inside yourself -like aliens from another planet or whatever vibration.

And how do you bring the inner into the outer?

Jeane: A little bit at first and then more as you see different possibilities.

John: Yeah, which is all again a responsibility and a role of the feminine, being the container energy, and having domain over creation to see something like this through. The feminine use of energy carries the responsibility of permeating the vibration over the Whole.

The teacher’s way of saying it is creating a ring of light around the planet, so that through that can be a light from beyond that can come through. In other words, without that, then only a certain kind of burden and weight and malaise is inclined to exist, and in order to bring inner into outer you have to kind of set the stage for this more to happen. And the stage is set with a quality of the heart.

The heart has to get to a point where it is able to provide an access or a means to the inner that it can experience, to come into the outer, or in other words, to be able to integrate the aliens. Of course you’re looking at all of this outer means upon which that can happen, how they can be introduced into the outer society.

So your dream had two octaves. The first octave was the lower self of it all, and the second was the higher self of it all. And you might say that it all backs up to a central understanding that this is the feminine’s responsibility over the Whole.

The masculine brings forth the spark, the energy that can try to set in motion something so that the sweeping over of the feminine, as an energy holding a space and a place in the outer, this being the feminine’s nature and way, so that that can happen.

The masculine has to bring something through. It’s the protector. It’s the guardian of very specifically used energies. But without the permission, or without the overall quality there, being sustained in some capacity, to be able to accommodate, the change will fall flat. In other words, it has no permission or right to do that without this overall quality being there for it to be okay

Return to Innocence

Sleepy_Train_Tracks-1819In John’s previous dream (see Following the Vibration), he understood that the journey he was on was more important than the destination. In this image, he is continuing his journey, trying to resolve imbalances in the environment as he goes. What that requires is an insight and deeper connection, facilitated by a return to innocence. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

John: Okay, so from my first dream, I’m taking a quality of a vibration that has to be lived in a particular way, and has to be followed out wherever that thread might go, and knows that it continues and doesn’t stop, and doesn’t accept anything, because the vibration continues.

And so as the result of the vibration continuing, it can’t stop. It has to keep unfolding and unfolding and following the thread of that vibration. So what does that look like, then, in the scheme of creating an image, or a dream, in which you have the most trite of all circumstances?

So the dream that’s created is, I’m in an 1800’s town, a Wild West town. The name of the town is Round Up, and I’m good friends with the sheriff of the town. He’s like a Matt Dillon or something. 

And we’re in a bar, or in kind of a saloon-type setting, which you always are in a saloon-type setting when you’re in one of these old Wild West towns, kind of is the center of town of things. And there’s this goofball who’s carrying on, and he says some stuff that is totally unacceptable to Matt Dillon, and Matt Dillon tells him to get prepared because he’s going to kill him. 

That’s just unacceptable behavior in Matt Dillon’s town. And I look at this, and I’m a good friend of Matt Dillon, and this is ridiculous. This should not be the case. You just don’t go dropping things like this, being like this just because something is haywire.

And so I start making jokes about it, and poking at Matt Dillon, and he laughs a little bit, but then all of a sudden he gets mad and he says, “And when I get through with him you better be gone, leave town. If I find you, you’re dead.” 

I head up to the main street and I have to ask directions and make sure I know where the sheriff’s office is at because I need to go by the sheriff’s office to find the train station to leave town. 

When I get to the train station I run into two bozos who were also part of the saloon, but didn’t say anything because they’re strangers passing through. And it’s kind of like, it makes sense to them that I’m leaving like they’re leaving, but they are both pretty innocent and dumb type characters. 

I get on the train, and the train is basically empty. I have three seats to myself, and I end up talking to a guy in a seat up in front of me and he becomes a really good friend of mine. And we’re heading to some other town, and then on the other side of this town is where I can feel that I am going.

And I share with him somehow or another in having talked to him, it becomes obvious that this is where I’m going, when before I had no idea when I got on the train. And the train when I first got on it is basically empty. That’s why I had three seats in that row to myself, and then he was up in the row in front of me, and I somehow talked back and forth like that.

And so I mention, somehow it comes to my attention where I’m going, and I mention the name of the town, or try to, but I can’t quite pronounce it. I can’t say its name. And he says, “I know what you’re talking about.” He knows the town. So, from that I know that he understands the energy, or the vibration. 

So we come to the town in between and he gets out to stretch his legs. And I sit in the seat, and then the people get on, as he gets back on, and every seat is being taken as everyone is rushing on, and everyone knows what seat they’re supposed to sit in. 

It’s like these seats are all something that they intuitively know are seats that they’re meant to be in. I’m sitting in the middle of the row I’m in, and a little boy – who knows where the parents are – sits to my left, and suddenly there’s a little girl even smaller who is standing, hasn’t quite sat down in the seat that I feel my friend needs to sit in – whenever I find him again.

And I kind of have my hand on the seat so she hasn’t quite sat down, and she’s kind of in this amnesic condition of ambivalency. Again, no parents around, and I can’t help but wonder, where are the parents? 

And finally I see my friend, and he’s coming down the aisle and, of course, it’s full of commotion. It’s a little loud because there are so many people getting on to go to this place. And I yell out his name. He can’t hear me. I yell it out again. He still can’t hear me. I’m screaming it out at him because he has turned with his deaf ear towards me.

And I wake up, and so this is where I draw up the meaning of the dream. Quite a dream.

So, what’s happened is I’ve been thrown out of where I have been hanging out, because I cannot accept the security of a place that is out of balance.

The next step is on a train that is going nowhere important. I make a friend whose understanding helps me reach a clarity, but he can’t transfer that into a process for himself, not in his present condition.

The imbalance in the town was a lack of sight. The imbalance on this train, in this friend who isn’t seeing what he seems to know. In other words, he seems to know it, but he’s not actually seeing it. And that’s why he kind of knows what I mean by the town, but that doesn’t mean he’s going there.

But this train now is full of passengers, who all know where it is that they belong on their way to whatever the next place is for them. The seat I’m trying to save for my friend seems to be a seat that this little girl recognizes as where she needs to be, and whose innocence and naturalness and freedom, without the guidance of her parents, is something to behold.

It is as if my friend wanders off, and this other octave of a new way of being is there to my right, with the little boy to the left. This may be a crowded train, and I may be in a middle seat that is usually uncomfortable, but this setting has a lot of space without the usual personal responsibility that I had been taking on.

Now I simply go to a new place that I can feel lies up ahead, even though I can’t quite remember its name.

That’s kind of what is going on, but at the same time you can see in a dream like this that there is a transmutation taking place. In other words, something clicked that got me to recognize something with this particular friend. However, this particular friend can’t quite hear it for themselves, has a sense and can see it, but does not quite own it.

And it’s as if that seat for that friend is actually a seat that hits this other quality that’s this little girl, which is really interesting because with all of these people jumbled on there, you have a little boy that’s going to hang to himself. You have this little girl who’s content and totally at peace with herself, and you have me in the middle.

I mean, it’s a pretty comfortable ride. I mean, they’re both easy to be around. They both have a place in their innocence that they occupy. In other words, in a roundabout way I guess one of the questions I would ask is, how do they compare to those two mugs who were in the saloon that then I met in the train station getting on the train?

They were adults but kind of retardish, disconnected from things because they’re just strangers passing through, and so maybe they don’t have to have an opinion about what goes on. If you try to compare how they all fit together with me, in terms of the little boy and the little girl, the little boy and the little girl carry a whole sense of freedom. The others carried an ambivalence, but they both have this innocence, and especially the little girl, complete total innocence.

It’s very cute what she’s doing, just standing there not sitting down, as if she’s not even aware that I might be trying to save the seat even. At some point in time if she tries to sit down I have to move my hand. It’s just you can’t say no to that.

And if I’d have gotten my friend’s attention maybe something could have happened, but I wake up. I don’t know whether she gets the seat or not, or whether my friend finally hears me, but the sense I have is that she gets the seat.

And my friend, who saw something, yet then can’t quite bring it through to where he hears something too. He then, in that particular state, is going to miss something. But in the condition of the little girl, it all amnesically is there ready to come back into a quality.

I don’t know, what does the right hand side stand for? I really don’t have a good idea or understanding. I have to study psychology on right and left, but I’m certainly having a lot of dreams with right and left in them. I’ve never gotten comfortably clear with what they signify.

It obviously signifies a lot, because there’s always something on the right, something on the left, and often times I will have a feminine on the right or the left. I need to understand that better – I just don’t.
