In this imagery, Jeane appears to be getting married and also moving house. Symbolically, marriage speaks of bringing something together or making a connection. And moving points to a shift because a house or home in a dream represents what we are living in, or represents us as a life. Then we can look at the other details of the dream and ask, are there impediments in the way for making this connection and shift? In this case, the answer is yes. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)
Jeane: So in my next dream, I’m going to get married, or am considering getting married, but it feels like if we’re having this, the reception or whatever is being held in kind of a circular building outside and they have valets that come and park the car. And the way that they park the car is they take it from you and then they back it up into a space in kind of a circle around the building. And I’m kind of being a little fussy that they park my car near the front so that it’s easy to leave since it’s my wedding, or reception, whatever it is.
And then it feels like I’ve gone from there to this kind of small… initially it looks a little like a trailer, but it’s been very nicely fixed up by my husband and his family, complete with a little high chair because I must be pregnant.
It’s almost like the family was a little anxious about whether I would go through with the wedding or not. It’s like I had to kind of feel comfortable about how the place had been decorated, even though it’s a very small, very simple space with wood floors.
Then when I look around I notice the space has changed and instead of just being this kind of almost like one room, very plain, but very nice space with the wooden floors and everything, I now see that there are steps that go down that lead to a second area that has a couch that faces a little fireplace. And it’s no longer just a trailer, but it’s an apartment that I had been renting in a building where a lot of people rented apartments that kind of ran into the next apartment.
There’s almost like some division between them, but we’re all shifting, we’re all shifting units over one because the landlord’s remodeling. And my unit still looks the same, but I’m looking around at what’s happening to other people around me and there were two people that were rooming together and the person that originally had the place is going to be keeping it, but the other one is moving on.
I will have this place but I’ve still moved over one from where I used to live. I think that’s about all I remember of that dream.
John: The dream is indicating that in order for you to make the connection, or the marriage, or whatever, to bring it through that there’s a shift that has to happen. In other words, however it was that you had the appearance of how things are, in terms of how you are, in relationship to where you lived, or the house perception, so to speak, of yourself, that has shifted into something different.
You’re rejecting something that had been put together and shaped in a particular way that, for some reason, bothers you now. Is it a rejection, or a realization? You have a shift that you can make, or you can sit in something that has run some sort of test of time in terms of its value or utility to you, and if you continue to accept how that is in terms of how it’s put together, how it’s shaped, this will keep you from shifting.
So, what the dream is trying to say is that there is an attention that you need to catch up with that you need to place your attention upon, that you’d be inclined to miss if you overly indulge in the environment that you’re in, if you tend to see the scenario of that environment as comfortable. There’s a part of you that isn’t comfortable in it.
The dream isn’t indicating that you’ve precisely figured out why it is that it’s not comfortable, or why it is that something is off. And you could very easily disregard what you note as off but, if you do, there also seems to be at hand here something that has to do with a shift.
It’s as if the shift won’t happen if you don’t come to grips with whatever it is that is holding something off.
The first dream kind of drew you forward, but that kind of being drawn out like that led to you coming across and discovering that there was something that you’d lost. In other words, your identity now is stirred up.
So in that dream you seemed to be asking the question, why is it that you’re doing what you’re doing? Something isn’t quite coming through for you, that’s what it is. Something isn’t quite coming through for you.
It’s like saying your feminine nature needs to hear a memo and it’s come to the point where you need to get that memo better than what has been happening so far. It needs to come through clear for identity purposes. And in the second dream, in terms of being able to make the shift that is necessary at this point in time. So there is some memo you’re meant to get.
Hmmm. And of course, if there’s some memo that you’re meant to get that throws the responsibility upon me in some fashion, because I represent that masculine energy that pulls something down as a clarity that then awakens something from a hearing center that completes the loop, or the process, by which then something is energetically entwined and correlated.
But I seem to be not quite getting that memo, either. If I’m not seeing it, how can it be possible for you to see it, would be my attitudinal response if I were to look at myself as having a role in relationship to your process.
In other words, we’re both being challenged in terms of something that is there on an identity level, that isn’t being recognized. Only your dream takes it one step further and indicates that this is important, that there is something about this in which what we are caught up in is holding us back.
We need to subtly recognize whatever it is that we’re caught up in, and realize that some slight letting go or whatever that is, there is a shift that’s necessary that we’re meant to catch at this point in time.
This is a real stretch here. What is it that we’re not getting that we’re meant to get?
