This dream has a very common scenario – trying to connect with, or talk to, someone and not succeeding. Yet from the perspective of a dream from a person on a spiritual path, it can be applied to the human race as a whole. With the way things are in outer life, common sense no longer works, it no longer penetrates the fog of things. So how can people be reached? Well, there must be a third way. Perhaps the only solutions now are spiritual solutions. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)
Jeane: In my first dream, I’m living in a duplex, and there’s a lady who lives next door in the basement of her duplex and then she has some renters, who are kind of like biker types who live more in the other floor, or floors.
And I seem to keep going over to her place, either I want to use the telephone, or I want her to speak to me, but I can’t get her to come out of the basement and speak to me. And the tenants she has, like the biker types or whatever, are very protective and rough too, so they try to let me not even get to her.
And so I just have these episodes that I’m going over there, and maybe I’m trying to talk them into, would she let me use the phone, or can I actually talk with her? And they’re always blocking this. And one time I go over and they’re not there, and it feels like I finally get in the same room with her, and she has a cat or a person that talks who’s there.
And it’s like the cat that talks, or the little kid that’s with her doesn’t really let me do that either. And so finally there’s a time when I go over and I’ve gone actually next door to the duplex, and the duplex seems to be right on a wharf and there’s a boat in the water kind of tied up to her unit.
And I’ve gone out on the boat and there’s some kind of a code in numbers that’s written, almost like it’s etched in the wood on the boat, and it has something to do with starting the boat. And I’m thinking that because I’m in the boat, and maybe I even want to use a phone that’s connected to the boat, that maybe she’ll finally start talking to me.
I can see she’s at least come up to the first floor of the house. But it feels like, no, she’s still not connecting or something. It was really frustrating.
John: So she wouldn’t relate, even when you made a shift in terms of something that she enjoyed using too?
Jeane: Nope. It’s like she’s still hiding out.
John: Because what you’re describing, the theme of the dreaming was, how do you relate to things in terms of yourself and in terms of the system, in which there’s an entrenched nature?
And the entrenched nature is not going to change unless something is done to create a shift, or a change in the way that it perceives itself. In other words, it has gotten lost within the qualms of things. It’s become overwhelmed by what is unfolding in the environment around it and, as a consequence, it has lost the cadence to the ordinary reasoning, and practicality, and functionality that you would ordinarily expect in life.
It has lost that – being in touch with something like that. And you could easily conclude that it’s lost a rootedness or groundedness to its own heart, because there used to be a kind of conscience that worked where a person could sort things out according to what was okay and what wasn’t okay.
And so in your dream you dreamt that you could go over, in your innocent natural way, to this person that you thought you could communicate with, and you realized that there was no demeanor or manner that you could approach this person with that would get their attention.
What you’re doing is you’re describing in the dream a quality that is set, that is not capable, or able, to readily change in the way that you think that things should change. You are coming from the perspective of a kind of common sense that you feel should rule the occasion, and you’re finding that it no longer works, in terms of what is in front of it now, and so you actually have come up with a creative alternative to try to bring about a change in focus.
You’ve attempted to take and look at what there could be as a vested personal interest. And so you’ve attempted to take and bring this back into the equation, like this boat or something, that this person would be interested in appreciating or enjoying, too.
I was very curious to see if this would work, because I hadn’t thought of that myself that you take and co-opt them a little bit and maybe that works. It doesn’t work. It’s just like my idea when I see something that’s unbalanced, I will often times try to figure out a way of shaming the person, embarrassing them, thinking that if you create enough of a shock that they’ll get it. It’s in their best interest to get it.
But when you shame him, because now they lose credibility in terms of the way that they should be even seeing themselves, which has this personal quality to it. That doesn’t work anymore. It’s almost like the hint no longer is the hint, especially if the hint has behind it a little probe.
So you’re actually trying to probe, you might say, if you were to take and add the masculine element into your dream, you’re trying to ask or probe a very, very deep question and that is, okay, we live at a time when everything is awry or disturbed, and wherever you look things are out of kilter and out of balance, and how is it possible to take and get things righted back on course?
And you’ve approached this from the standpoint of innocence, hat in hand so to speak, going to your neighbor and being very open with them and it doesn’t work. It used to work that way, but it doesn’t work that way now. Things have gone too far over an edge.
So you’ve taken in your dream last night and you have effectually tried two approaches that used to get the attention of things in life and have failed in both accords. So you’ve left it at that. And both of those ways that you tried used to work, and they no longer work.
And the only thing that one can conclude is that a person is so chaotically disturbed that the ability to get their attention in the certain set ways that they carry, something else is needed in order for them to get the memo because the common sense no longer applies.
That a still third way is required, but very, very, very few people are in a position to be able to effectuate this third way. And if you have to apply this third way to everything, there’s a lot of work to be done because that’s an approach that is not something commonly looked at in the consciousness that is unfolding – in terms of how it needs to approach the collective.
